I haven’t played the game much the last couple days. I know it is nonsensical, but docking with a static background is off-putting. It doesn’t have the sense of relaxed familiarity. I keep catching myself trying to double click to open a cargo hold or rotate my camera angle. Having the fitting window open does however help.
The Tsunami (and I use that word deliberately) of angst and rage coming from the user base and directed at CCP is just, well, astounding. CCP Pann made an official acknowledgement of the issue in the thread here:
In less than a day there were 4,000 replies and growing. CCP Pann did however mess up (in my opinion) by suggesting the primary concern of people was the pricing in the Vanity store. I literally slapped my forehead when I read that.
In itself, Incarna and the related issues do not warrant the huge backlash and people screaming about cancelling their accounts. This however is not really just about Incarna anymore. It’s like that argument your wife starts about something minor, which suddenly morphs into covering everything you have done wrong over the last 20 years that she hasn’t forgiven you for. It comes down to that lack of forgiveness for past indiscretions, a loss of trust, and a feeling that CCP is losing touch and doesn’t understand the player base.
I hope this all ends up in good make up sex, and not irreparable damage to the relationship. Anyone got the number of a good marriage counselor?
