The current CSM Chair (known in game as The Mittani) posted an article on Kugutsumen that suggests the CCP upper management is “hell-bent on running Eve Online into the ground”. (You can read it here)
He indicates the EVE Flying In Space experience is suffering due to CCP’s development of their World of Darkness and DUST products, and that “we will not stand idly by as an alliance while our subscription money goes to waste, watching the game we pay to play spiraling into entropy due to the folly and neglect of CCP’s management”.
The article was picked up by several gaming websites, which I assume is in part some of the loud statements The Mittani suggested his alliance would be making in the coming weeks on this topic.
I’m not sure as to what end this will have – and when it comes to the Goons, it is never a good idea to make assumptions. The underlying question of the Incarna riots still seem to be stuck in people’s mind – is CCP really listening to their players? I wonder if direct attacks on CCP by the Mittani might break CSM rules? Won’t it be interesting if The Mittani is removed from the CSM because of anti-CCP views he pushes in the media? Is that what he is aiming for – or maybe we will see a very public resignation because he views the CSM as a waste of time? Or will this just end up as a lot of hot air…
Regardless – hurry up CCP and give your players some reason to believe and trust in you.
