EVE Online has seen its share of rough times of late with lag issues still plaguing the game from the Dominion launch and a community less than thrilled about the fact that a 70 person dev team is working on future content, leaving only 22 developers working to address current game issues and to try and appease an increasingly discontent playerbase. The Mittani has been monitoring the situation and this week offers up his thoughts on CCP's current dilemma in Sins of a Solar Spymaster #49 - The Summer of Discontent.
Things began to go wrong in early June, after a thread posted by Dierdra Vaal of the CSM (and leader of EVE University, a highly respected new player organization) accelerated into a veritable threadnaught, now sitting at 86 pages. Dierdra’s argument about the crippling development backlog was covered in one of my previous columns, and has continued to grow in force and popularity.
