There has been a theme running with my posts over the last 10 odd days.
Gaffe’s from CCP, thoughts on the resulting dysfunctional reactions and interactions from both CCP and the players, and the journey towards appeasement and resolution.
Today yet another DEV blog from CCP:
They explain their mistakes and lessons learnt around their CONCORD Hull gifting, what they will do moving forward, and their plans with how and roughly when these hulls will be accessible in other ways.
It all seems reasonable to me, but I’m not invested in any of the rage so can’t say how this will placate those carrying pitchforks.
Mostly I find myself coming away from many of these CCP / Player clashes with a sense of awkwardness. CCP’s mistakes can be a bit silly, and obvious with hindsight, but the player’s reactions can just as often seem too excessive. You end up feeling both sides have got it wrong.
