Fail. I was waiting on resubbing until I could actually walk around and socialize with other players. :(

this is a great idea and a good way to show renewed commitment to what the playerbase feels is priority one.

Namely fighting in space

You can socialize all you want already , just use your lasers!

And...

Congratulations Brendan Drain with your feature in this month's EON Magazine .

Looking forward to reading it when I get my hardcopy

@tooright Cheers! I actually wrote for EON a lot before working for Massively and did two articles for them again last year, but this one got on the front cover! Very happy with that and can't wait to see it in print! :D

Did they apologize yet for making Dust PS3-exclusive? No?

They're going to wait for it to fail before they pull the trigger on that one I guess. I'm sure someone already has the letter drafted.

@Apakal thats the main reason im not resubbing. Obviously, Eve players are the first community that would have wanted to get their hands on this part of the eve universe. Unfortunatly for them, and probably for CCP in the long run, some bean counter thought it was a good idea to release the only Eve expansion worth mentioning in a year as a PS3 exclusive. Greed is good, all aboard the fail train...

Why go back when they still haven't implemented any fixes?

Why go back when the PCU is dropping daily, and the server is a ghost town?

Why go back when you're still being taunted by a low-res jpg of a door?

I wanted to check out the "ghost town" to see if I could do some mining in peace down in low sec. Imagine my surprise when two of the other 46k people that were on decided to pew pew my Thorax. I guess I was wrong to trust the opinion of someone who doesn't actually play the game. Sad face!

@Boardwalker you have to realize alot of the 'bitter vet' people are 0.0 Sov. type people that can't survive a couple jumps in lowsec either. nothing against them EvE is harsh Bro.

Small gang and solo piracy are alive and well, I guess I don't have to tell you that.

Surprised you thought you could 'anything' in "peace' in lowsec but one is born every minute so they say.

Nah, I was just kidding about the mining in low sec part. My point was that EVE is far from a "ghost town". It's annoying when people who don't play the game say stuff like that, when it isn't true. Oh well. Guess I haven't graduated yet to "bitter vet".

46,000 people online? Guess you haven't logged into Eve for several months. The numbers haven't been that high for a LONG time. gg tho.

Echoing other comments here: they want me to resubscribe on a "promise"? That is weaksauce. I'll resub when the tide has turned, but for now, I'm tired of making excuses and rationalizations for what "could" get better.

Agreed, CCP has done absolutely nothing to fufill those lofty promises. They're just hoping to pump up the subs #'s based off empty words.

Re-sub if you want, but you'll be going back to exactly what you quit from in the first place. At the very least wait until they DO something.

"Put up or shut up" would be my advice for CCP at this point in time.

Also as I recall, a certain CCP official went on record as wanting to see action as opposed to words. I think EVE's playerbase wants the same thing.
