    Started out with 7 people. Put all they had into 1 game and now look at them. Take notes, this is how its done.

    Yes im a little worried, one of the things that kept me 12 years in EvE was ccp, but, if they are a wholly independent subsidury then thy will still be in charge of the game.
    Of course the cash-shop is a worry, but i cannot see how with the current gameplay how a p2w will be added.
    Given we already have skill injectors / plex / skins i cannot see how things can change, if your real life rich you can buy a fully maxed out toon for just £25,000 or so, so that doesn't change, the fact you can theen log in and get owned as you suck, so how does that change?
    There is no enhancement in EvE like bdo for gear, i played BDO for the first 12 months until it got to point that gear score was just about the cash you put in... So will be interesting to see how the venture will go.

    Im sure lots of people will jump on the p2w of PA, but lets give this time, i would expect to see some impact by maybe next summer/autumn on how PA are involved, only then will we know if its the death or even 'rebirth' of EvE. 

    Obviously i hope its the latter, as im also sure that 99% of people on this forum do, the one thing EvE has which most pople agree with is the fact they showed that a small team and a niche game can survive over time lets hope that PA don't destroy what 1000s off people have built up over 15 years

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game where of course you're welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.

    Hopefully this makes Spreadsheets-In-Space more playable for the masses instead of the diehard zealots that currently play it.  I stopped playing EVE years ago because I decided that I cared about all the work I decided to put into the game and a large portion of the game's population decided that the mentality of an 8 year old playground bully is more fun.

    On the other hand, it could also make BDO that much worse, but then again I haven't played BDO in a year or so either, though I was considering trying it out again with all the changes incoming.

    Every successful company has small roots - I am yet to hear of a company that starts of as s billion dollar 50,000 employee company on day 1 from scratch.

    So "this is how its done" - literally every successful business ever

    RNG Ship Upgrades, "costumes" to enhance every little job and activity, space pets and some kinda afk space fishing, here we come.

    There's always the tiny, miniscule chance this could NOT turn into a giant train wreck dumpster fire... but I'm not willing to bet on that.

    Wasn't CCP working on a FPS set in the EVE universe or something?

    World of Darkness (engine to be reused in EVE for avatars and walking in stations). IP sold in the meantime.

    Dust 514 free to play FPS (on Playstation 3)

    Project "Nova" and Project "Legion" were (are ?) planned offshots (Unreal Engine) of DUST 514.

    What company made their 1st game which was a mmo that went on to be as successful as BDO and has done what Pearl has done. 

    Pearl was an unknown company and made Black Desert which was a brand new unknown IP. 

    Not talking about roots. What other company did what Pearl has done.?

    I always found EVE boring. Maybe they can liven it up some.
    sure liven it up with some heavy p2w, pay 50k dollars and you can wipe a entire fleet by yourself  :p

    CCP has always had a great sense of humour...

    They named the latest expansion "Into the Abyss", then sold their company to Pearl Abyss !

    Priceless ! :D

    Everquest 1 - 989 Studios - ushered a whole new genre of 3D MMORPGs - there wouldn't be BDO without these guys most likely

    Asheron's Call 1 - turbine

    Anarchy Online - Funcom

    basically any gen1 MMORPG 

    how about that, hmm? 

    As far as non-MMO games with original IPs that made it huge 

    League of Legends - RIOT

    or 

    Diablo - Blizzard

    Starcraft - Blizzard

    etc...


    Please stop making a big deal out of something that has been done for 15+ years before Pearl Abyss even existed.


    Heck even take a small company like Trion - their first game was Rift - unknown IP, unknown company - they made $100million in the first 6 months of Rift launch.

    Does that count?

    Locutus is my favorite Picard by far - in general I think Borg is what made the series so good.

    Their introduction is certainly when the series came into its own.

    I mean this doesn't mean THAT much... Yet.  I'm sure they will want their investment back, but doesn't Eve already have the option to buy things for money and sell them for ISK? I don't know what else they could really add that would change that drastically. Maybe directly buying skill upgrades for money?

    This is funny and a little unexpected. Maybe Pearl Abyss will do something decent with the game, or maybe they bought it for tech reasons and will just let it ride out and use the tech in their newer games.

    At least they know how to run a successful MMO so that should be good for EVE fans. It would be hard for them to run it any more into the ground than CCP has. They can't really make it more pay to win than it is. I guess they could add loot crates which would suck, but I doubt that.
