‘What We Have Here Is A Failure To Communicate’
“First on Hans’ list is the infamous Complex (plex) spawning bug. Hans explained that this needs to be addressed immediately, by June if at all possible.
CCP Ytterbium explained that the developers thought that this was fixed, and were surprised to hear that the fix wasn’t yet working properly. It would be helpful for them to have as detailed instructions as possible to aid in recreating the bug.”
How can that even be possible? How could he think that bug was fixed when there have been endless complaints for literal years about it? That really just blows my mind. How can someone be so out of touch with the problems of FW and yet be tasked for fixing it?
Blows my mind, really.
I am almost tempted to go to the forums and dig up all the countless threads from over the years asking (begging) for someone to please fix it, but I have this strange medical affliction that makes my eyes roll and I burn with the desire to bang my head against a wall after reading more than ten minutes of them. (I hate the forums k?)
So I’m thinking, maybe ole Yitterbom is the same way. Maybe he hates the forums too, maybe that’s why he didn’t know what was going on in FW. (Does he even play in FW??)
Apparently Yitter doesn’t Twitter either.
So how does one reach him?? How are we to report bugs and express concerns and give ideas if the most obvious of broken things lay neglected for years because someone ‘thought it was fixed’?
The good news is that we have Hans Jagerblitzen, a CSM member who actually plays in FW and has since he started playing EVE.
Obvious by the CSM7 Minutes published today, Hans is taking our concerns to CCP.
The bad news is that a lot of Amarrians simply do not trust Hans because he is a Dirty Mim. And I really have no idea how the Caldari and Gallente feel about him.
What we need is some sort of representation per militia, a couple of people from each corner of FW that players can feel comfortable talking with, discussing ideas etc. Those people can then speak with our CSM representative and possibly CCP themselves.
Basically a smaller, personalized version of CSM but just for FW. We could vote for our faction reps. Mind you this isn’t something that CCP need to endorse (though it would be fabulous if they did). We could do our own grassroots thing.
I think something like this needs to happen quickly, because they are starting to work on the winter expansion.
What do you guys think?
