Eve Online Developers Address Player Concerns with 1st CSM Q&A

Posted Mon, Jun 29, 2009 by Martuk

Eve Online developers recently took the time to address some concerns of the player base. In its first Q&A, developers answered questions posed by the Council of Stellar Management, a group of elected players chosen by the Eve Online community. The Q&A addressed such concerns as the delay of the "Quarterly Economic Newsletter", plans for a complete UI overhaul, upgrades to the forums, the "Ask Uncle-Zulu" session, and concerns about Factional Warfare.

We plan the NPC timeline for events leading up to expansions, coordinating the release of news and integrating the high level plot with chronicles, video, and everything else we can. This year, our storyline theme was to try and “cross the streams” more, meaning that we were going to look for ways to weave the exploits of capsuleers into the NPC canon. The Caldari sweep of contestable Federation space gave us the perfect context to do just that. By the time this year’s winter expansion is released, it will be clear that the NPC storyline events revealed then have direct origins to this player-generated event. In other words, it definitely shaped our storyline objectives, and fits perfectly with concurrent efforts to raise the visibility of player group actions in general.
