What is reddit's opinion of Evanova for EVE Online? From 3.5 billion comments
That is somehow my opinion too, although you don't really need much more "expertise" than CCP already has to come up with something good. Also, CCP Seagull mentioned at FF2016 that they were staffing accordingly. Add to it that they already have all the assets they would ever need, expertise is not a daunting issue.
One drawback of letting "everyone build an app" is consistency: if you look at the Android store, there are many "Eve" apps, most of which haven't been updated in ages; they don't look remotely similar and each one is a mix of good and bad features. It is better on IOS since Neocom is largely dominating but that's it.
In this regard, CCP most likely didn't help by announcing a mobile application - they gave application authors the idea that the end was near for custom apps, delivered nothing but discouragement to app authors.
Another issue is scalability: it is fine to have 15K-20K users online, doing some things. That's a whole lot of new troubles when you have 50K+ mobile subscribers doing things all the time. This same scalability issue arises as the API allows for more and more features. That's a solvable issue though but it takes more than a finger snap.
Now, as an app author, following changes in Eve, adding/modifying features is very hard and demanding, and eats up a lot of time and resources. Given the current state of existing apps, it is no longer possible to be "that one guy" in his garage creating an app that has enough value to be worth the effort. CCP wins here by having a team, but we're still waiting :P
Source: I make an app: Evanova
When asked about the long-delayed ability to walk around stations and interact with other players via character avatars, CCP Rise explained that the team is focused primarily on enhancing in-space gameplay and that putting people on avatar development would require too much in terms of resources and time. He also praised the current Council of Stellar Management for helping the CCP team dodge potential blunders and better understand EVE's players.
The whole thing is worth a read if you're an EVE pilot or are interested in a small peek at the life of an MMO game designer.
So I figured I’d post Jestertrek’s AMA here, since it contains a lot of interesting stuff.reddit
r/Eve - I was on EVE's CSM8, I was space-famous for a long while, and now my...

The ones I found interesting where:
Why do you think CCP gave so much lip service to caring about the economy when you were a CSM, and now has given up on it so dramatically?
Lots of people have said a lot of things about Dr.Eyjo who was EVE’s chief economist when I was on the CSM. I heard every opinion of the man possible when I was on the CSM, from “he’s useless and never comes into the office unless a reporter or the CSM is in the building” to “he’s critical to helping us balance the economy.”
One thing is for sure, though: when he left, the devs stopped caring about the economy almost completely from a development standpoint. Today, they pay lip service to it (sometimes) but the development isn’t data driven in the way it was (say) in the lead-up to the moongoo rebalance. As bad as that rebalance was done, at least you can say that the devs looked at the data before they did it. These days, I’m not convinced they look.
What was the most audacious, egregious, slap-in-the-player-base’s-face sentiment you ever heard proposed or uttered by a CCP-er? (feel free to leave the CCP employee anonymous if you’d like)
It’s not a single thing. It’s the total disregard that some devs had for player opinion. There were and are some devs that simply don’t give a ■■■■ that there are players out there and that we maybe know the game.
CCP SoniClover was really notorious about this, as were Ytterbuim and Arrow to lesser extents. All of them would come into Summit sessions, drop what they were doing on the table, and pretty much say “take it or leave it”. When Arrow was pushed, he’d say “well, we’ll iterate on that” or “you’ll get used to it”. He said both about monochrome Neocom icons when those were pushed out, which enraged me and I don’t anger easily. He just wasn’t interested in an opinion that didn’t start and end with “You’re a genius.”

Reddit eve online
Talking about their work on a 3rd-party site, “on their off-time ” to the point it becomes the “place to go” to get info, for some… points to why so many feel that CCP has catered to a minority of players at the expense of everyone else.
Reddit isn’t anymore, the place to go if you want info from devs. They are far more active on the forums. The perception doesn’t match the reality.
Some numbers using high profile devs:
|CCP Name||Forum Name||Redit Name||Last Form Post||Last Reddit Post||Forum Post Last 12 Months||r/eve posts last 12 months|

Except for CCP Falcon, who is paid to interact with the community, most of the others are more active on the forum than they are on reddit over the last year, although a look at the dates they post suggest they become more active on both platforms when they have something relevant to say.
All official information is posted here in devblogs and official threads are here on the forum.

Well I am not sure that was the reason r/eve went dark.
The reason Bernie is alluding to & the one which will see you instantly banned of Reddit is this,
Reddit hired a new employee to focus on childrens issues on the platform.
The employee is called “Aimee” Challenor, they are transexual. Previously while running in the Green UK political party they hired a convicted pedophile to assist the party, their father.
Then while running works for the UK Liberal democrats they hired another pedophile their “husband”.
They have now been hired by reddit, if you post or link to any of the above facts it appears your reddit account is terminated. People have stated losing reddit accounts for even just reading the above.
This has effected admins of sub reddits who have had accounts deleted. Many admins have went into private to protect users as simply reading regarding this employee can trigger a ban on reddit.
I for one am no longer using the forum site reddit. This is not a meme or troll.
Reddit hired a transexual who has been alledged to be a pedophile, a person who previously hired convicted pedophiles & is married to a pedophile to spearhead development of childrens issues on their platform.
This is not a troll or a meme.

STK-S: USTZ based Initiative corp has a few openings - Reddit calls INIT the Imperium's Shock Troops
Re-posting: Still looking for USTZ players for pvp action. Really would like to see 3-4 more people that would be a good fit for our culture.
What we are flying (so you know if you can come with): Ravens, Magus’, Pontifexs, Interceptors, Ishtars, Purifiers, capitals, Retributions, Lokis, Tengus, Black Ops battleships/blops capable recon, and some other t1 cruisers that are random.
Disclaimer: We are in war-mode. Combat fleets are out 5 days a week minimum.
The alliance blops SIG is picking up a following, took out my first blops group recently - had some good fun and got a few rorquals. Normally 10-15 of us go out a few times a week to blow things up.
Priority is on more fun people to come on some fun fleets.
Also - I find it VERY funny that Mordus is recruiting claiming to have access to Fade, Pure Blind, and Deklein… it’s empty 24/7, well… not of INIT ships hunting. But you know…
Who’s winning the war in the north?
Pandemic Legion is big and scary, right?
Black Legion and Adversity are big hitters too!
Guardians of the Galaxy? 5 Eagle fleets deleted and counting.
zKillboard.com / Related Kills | X-7OMU | 2018-05-11 20:00
A battle took place in X-7OMU (Pure Blind) involving 518 pilots who lost a total of 49,004,988,237.85 isk
Another fine example of GOTG displaying ownership of Pure Blind

A battle took place in ROIR-Y (Pure Blind) involving 294 pilots who lost a total of 67,442,877,398.23 isk
So you live far away from us? Our Whaling fleets will find you. A recent visit to the newly reformed CO2 to welcome them back! Our Snuff allies were a little too aggressive, losing 15b in battleships - but the universe is a better place without these nasty rorquals!
zKillboard.com / Related Kills | 7G-H7D | 2018-04-29 16:00
A battle took place in 7G-H7D (Vale of the Silent) involving 486 pilots who lost a total of 67,652,512,913.82 isk
You think NC can save the north? Ha ha ha! They watch, tethered, while their tax payers burn.
All those titans and can’t win an ISK war - gotta love that!
Who are we?
• An experienced corporation, that successfully blends the two distinct paths of PVP content and industrial might, stretching back to nearly the very beginning.
• We have participated in every major war in the game to speak of.
• More than our fair share of firsts and seconds.
• Very cohesive, friendly group. We are seeking quality over quantity, which is why our recruiting methods, interviews, and standards are so high. Don’t let that deter you, for it might be the perfect home for you in which you end up playing with the same group of people for years.
• Inside and outside of game community, enjoying playing not only EVE but other games together when something fresh and fun comes out to play.
• Community extends to social media, discord, coms, and sometimes text shenanigans.
What do we have to offer?
• We are a member of The Initiative, arguably THE BEST entity in the game for PVP. Our alliance is a member of the Imperium coalition, a group of some 30,000 players that have proven that a lowly bunch of rifter pilots with no Skill points can grow into a large group that creates content, enjoys their time online, and has become a strong group of friends – sometimes memes too!
• Thriving pvp and pve opportunities abound.
• The alliance deploys multiple ready action fleets on a daily basis along multiple fronts.
|Large Fleet Actions||Medium Fleet Actions||Small Fleet Actions||Black Ops Fleet Actions|
|150+ people||50-150 people||20-50 people||5-20 people|
|1-2 per day||2-5 per day||2-3 per day||2-3 weekly|
• Be a part of newly developing trends, fleet comps including the vaunted and feared Snatch Fleet, and come drop the hammer with us - Burn it with fire!
|Tier 1 ISK Opportunities||Tier 2 ISK Opportunities||Tier 3 ISK Opportunities||Amenities|
|Explore - Data/Relic/Combat sites||Ratting in capitals and supers||Thriving Market to seed||Maximum indexes|
|Mining in barges to rorquals||Industry - build/react/copy/sell||Moon Mining||Refineries, Engineering complexes, and a Keepstar|
• Active – always 40-50 on our voice coms and alliance even at the quietest up to several hundred for peak times.
• No matter where your assets are in game, they can be moved to our space.
What are we looking for?
• Someone that is active. That means you are playing 2-3 times a week or more. This is your primary vice.
• Someone that will be interested and active in coms and chat.
• Someone that is either knowledgeable about pvp/fleet mechanics or is willing to learn and develop.
• The Initiative possesses some of the absolute best FCs in the game, spread across time zones and corporations, that means that our fleets are successful through attentive pilots that are aware and can think on their feet.
• Someone that can fly doctrine ships or is willing to modify their skill plan for a 30-90 day arrangement to get into fleet doctrine ships.
• Someone willing and eager to go on fleet (both large and small) events.
• Someone that is interested (as interesting as shooting rocks can be!) in being industrious and self-sufficient.
• Crucially important: We want people that can get where to they need to be, with or without help.
• You don’t need to be a space rock shooter, but you should be capable of earning a healthy living in our space without being on a welfare program!
• We use mumble and discord.
• The Initiative is 60 % EUTZ and 40 % USTZ. We have room for both, but we are particularly interested in finding new USTZ pilots.
The Initiative Blops crew believes in dropping the heaviest objects on people, if you use it - be ready to lose it. No room for Killboard Queens! 3 of the 8 Marhsal Losses are INIT - we are tied for first!
If you are motivated purely in stat padding your killboard, refusing to take the bad fights with the good, and generally need to tell yourself that blue balling is better that dying- I don’t think we are for you.
Metrics and stats below if you are motivated by killboard whoring.
STK Scientific | Corporation
STK Scientific: 49,834 ships destroyed and 13,206 ships lost.
The Initiative. | Alliance
The Initiative.: 499,936 ships destroyed and 218,693 ships lost.
STK: Founded 5-31-2003. A legacy of good and bad times, lots of things dying, and being so space rich we all have monocles and mythical beer fridges under the desk.
Do yourself a favor, find out if this opportunity is good for you. Real talk time – it might be a great fit and it might not.
Our core of players is very protective of each other and what we have established. Because what we offer, for most people, is such a good opportunity – we are very thorough in our recruitment process. We are one of the few corporations that was able to successfully blend being heavily into industry and pvp at the same time, most groups have to choose what to be good at. We chose both. Which is why we are looking for that special fit, someone who is interested in all aspects of the game and more importantly is a really fun person and good addition to our atmosphere.
