CCP Layoffs

Layoffs have hit CCP, as the Icelandic developer is cutting more than 100 positions, which represents twenty percent of its staff, reports Develop, saying most of the cuts will be at CCP's Atlanta office. "As we re-examine our outward relations, we are also taking time to re-evaluate our internal goals. In doing so, we have come to the conclusion that we are attempting too many things for a company our size," says the developer. "Rather than allowing this to persist, we have made the decision to sharpen our focus. Sadly, this means reducing our staff." Word is they are refocusing on EVE Online, and that development of their World of Darkness MMORPG continues with "a significantly reduced team."

So, does this still make them whiners and drama queens?

Absolutely. I've played EVE on-and-off since its beta. I've also played every other MMORPG out there, and none of them come close to having the number of spoiled, obnoxious brats that pervade the EVE fanbase. It's like playing with a bunch of evil Sheldons.

Wierd. I played it daily for seven years, in many corporations and alliances. We must have been on different servers...

I consider EVE players to generally be nice, mature, relaxed and friendly. Perhaps a bit demanding at times, as the game itself is demanding and unforgiving, I give you that, it kinda follows. When you lose a ship, you LOSE it (and everything in/on it), so better be careful - especially in a group. That might draw a special breed of gamers. Compared to other games you only have the hassle of respawning a bit down the path, stats down 1% for 15 minutes. For weak people!

And compared to other communities I've been in (a few MMOs and FPSs), the average EVE player is definitely not worse. Try go on a raid with people and do one mistake. Or don't have the right breastplate. Jeez. When you don't have to face the people you interact with, some people get really intolerant and impatient. That seems to be a general trait...
