EVE Blog Banter #19: Agatir Solenth – 2101.07.06
Greetings my fellow corp men, women, & blog readers!!!
Welcome to the nineteenth installment of the EVE Blog Banter, the monthly EVE Online blogging extravaganza created by none other than me, CrazyKinux. The EVE Blog Banter involves an enthusiastic group of gaming bloggers, a common topic within the realm of EVE Online, and a week to post articles pertaining to the said topic. The resulting articles can either be short or quite extensive, either funny or dead serious, but are always a great fun to read! Any questions about the EVE Blog Banter should be directed to email@example.com. Check out other EVE Blog Banter articles at the bottom of this post!
This months topic comes to us from @evepress, who he asks: The CSM: CCP’s Meta Game? The CSM, an EVE players voice to CCP. Right? In the grand scheme of things yes, the players bring up issues and the CSM presents them to CCP. But in its current iteration the CSM was supposed to be given small authority to assign CCP assets to projects that the CSM thought needed work on. As it has come out, this was not the case. So fellow bloggers, is the CSM worth it, has the CSM improved the game in any way, or is it just a well thought out scam by CCP to give us players a false sense of input in the game? What’s your take?
As everyone on the blog pack loves to get involved with CrazyKinux’s brain child…
This was something I had planned to comment on for my next blog, “Really it is all CCP’s & CSM’s fault… Really…” However it seems to be the “hot” topic. I had organized my thoughts and was about to put them to paper… But then two Blog pack members stated EXACTLY what I was thinking!!! So instead of trying to restate what they have said, I’d rather use this time to promote blogs which I read regularly! These guys are consistent bloggers who love and play EVE.
RIXX JAVIX – EVEOGANDA
BTW folks Rixx has begun promotion of his brain child DEATHRACE 2010! If you think you have what it takes to burn past gate camps and avoid hostile fire… You could make some iskies in this hi-speed game!!!
ROC WEILER – ROC’S RAMBLINGS
I was surprised to find another disgruntled SWG player here. I have to give two thumbs up on this post… one for his EVE point of view, and a second for his SOE commentary. It would seem we share the same soap box on the second topic.
If you like EVE based fiction and Minmatar this is the blog for you!!! Roc is a born again health nut in real life, so you can find some good recipes too.
If you check out the EVEOGANDA and ROC’S RAMBLINGS posts then you see I’m a fan of what CCP is attempting to do. I believe the direction CCP is heading will only make the game better, and will make it last longer. That is what I want and desire as a fan of this sandbox we call EVE. I have seen what poor decision making can do to a game. (ie SOE & SWG) CCP is not SOE! Remember this… a sandbox is full of SAND and each time you play in it, or build something in it, it will never be the same again.
As a side note:
It is sad to say that we lost an EVE icon in Kane Rizzel – A Pirates Persepective.
If you have read any of his posts you can see that Kane has been looking for some Low-Sec love for some time. He hasn’t gotten it, nor will get in the near future. Kane is a solo player. He is proud of his ability to work alone. So he has decided to quit. It sad to see him go as an EVE blogger, but unless your a fan of pirates you probably won’t miss him. I’m not sure why the Emo rage quit… but if he isn’t enjoying the game, it is probably time to move on.
Fly Safe… Stay Profitable…
