Latest CSM Meeting Minutes

Have only dredged through part of the 113 pages (113!!!!), but this quote from CCP Unifex stood out for me:

“Unifex went on to explain that CCP is ultimately a business, and has to look at what features have been successful. He points out that while the numbers are still early, Retribution has been arguably our most successful expansion from a numbers perspective. He also cited both Apocrypha and Exodus as great examples of releases that offered the feel of “Holy shit, I don’t know what’s out there”.

“Discussing Apocrypha specifically, Unifex pointed out that its success wasn’t that there were 2,500 new wormholes, it’s that there was new space, containing new NPC’s, that provided new resources, that built new interesting things that created new agencies of destruction. It required exploration. There was a sense of awe and wonder, and cut across a broad section of what EVE is. It wasn’t just things like modular POS’s, it wasn’t just something like Sovereignty, it wasn’t just a revamp of mining or whatever. It was about tying those types of things together into something that was more aspirational. Unifex admitted that the biggest mistake CCP made with Apocrypha was to not keep doing that for another 18 months. It wasn’t treated as a starting point, but as a single project”

 

Now, just what have I been saying about exploration and “here be dragons” for nearly as long as I’ve been blogging…?

More to come once I’ve had a chance to continue reading….
