Sort of.  He got a temp ban for fucking up the Battleship thread.  Then he made a fake account and went on a tirade against Trippy that he absolutely knew was going to get him kicked for good.

So really, he quit the forum over the Battleship thread.  It was just in a suicide by cop method.   awesome, for real

tbf, I'd still unban him. His Baldur's Gate playthrough is still the best thread on this entire forum.

Makes one wonder how that time dilation shit works. Stuff that happened in the early 2000's doesn't feel that long ago, until you attach the number to it. Then that sudden realization of how much time has went by comes crashing down on you.

I get that mostly with the university kids coming in every year... shit they deem as ancient history is stuff I see happening a couple years ago - only to realize, no it happened when I was in college and that is well on 25 years now.

I know what you mean. I was telling my nieces and nephews about the Berlin Wall last week and explaining why it happened, and then I said it came down in 1989 and felt really old.

That's how I feel when I'm talking to some of the kids in the art scene about the Rodney King riots and realize to them it would be like some old timer talking to me about the old Watts riots.

Which means it's probably about time for another Watts riot?

Hahahahahaha....


So if you want to watch the livestreams from CitizenCon this year? $20 digital ticket. Even the faithful are getting pissed off over on reddit for this one.

Edit: Also along with a couple minor in-game items that digital ticket gives you "access to purchase exclusive CitizenCon merchandise". Nothing like inserting microtransactions into your microtransactions.

It's microtransactions all the way down !!!

On a related note, considering the cost of some of these ships, at what point do they become macrotransactions?

It gets even better, in the apology letter Roberts calls out some of them as pitchfork wielders and condescendingly tells them he is going to explain what they couldn't think of of their own.

To even imply his supporters are dumb and callously berate them despite their long time support is some Trumpian " I can shoot someone in front of them " next level of disrespect.

OP is assuming its somewhat of a design-goal of eve to make players happy.
this is however not the case.

It was like that woman on twitter that someone linked to on Discord recently that was pissed that her wedding guests wouldn't cough up a grand each so she could have her dream wedding. Chris basically says that he planned out a bunch of shit for CitizenCon, estimated the additional cost at "low six figures", didn't want to use the money they already have because that's "development money", so rather than making plans for the budget they actually have instead he figured the backers wouldn't mind if he shook them down for more money.

Not explained: Why the fuck there have been six annual conventions now for a game nowhere near release.

Don't forget the 6month reality tv style contest where people compete to introduce their own spaceship, which Roberts and co abandoned 2 years later.

I still don't get why they did it.

I mean, to be fair, if I wasnt currently working a profession well respected job with amazing lifestyle, Id totally go work for them if they offered me decent wages.  Vampire the fuck out of every stupid perk they have while doing by as little work as possible.  Snort that sweet sweet idiot money until fired or it finally collapses.

I'd do it without even hesitating. And I'd keep one hell of a diary while I was doing it to "blow the lid" when the enevitable implosion happens, in order to make more moolah from the book.

When I left Wargaming in 2016, CIG offered me a job in Frankfurt, I turned it down to go to Slovakia for less money* instead.

*'Less money' actually turned out to be 'no money' as it happened..
