Eve is for sale guys. Eve
Lets have a whip round so we can combine it with our private server.
J'ai violé votre vaisseau spatial. C'était amusant....!
EVE once was about internet spaceships. Then those became serious business.
Now all that is left is serious business, and spaceships are docked for two years till after the Dust of Incarna.
I'm going to buy CCP and revert the nano nerf, tbh.
Granted, CCP isn't making the kind of profits right now to justify a $900M valuation, but if you're an investor looking to make money off of VR, you have to be asking yourself if buying CCP now will pay off in the long run by parlaying their early success to later mass-market success. Meanwhile if you're CCP's owners, if someone is coming to you with an unsolicited offer for a pretty good chunk of change, you have to ask yourself if you're better off getting out now for a tidy profit (given the overvaluation) or whether you roll the dice like your potential buyer is planning. This is what happens with successful, project-driven companies. It's time to decide who gets off the crazy train now, and who's riding it up Mount Money.
Tranquility (EVE) Influence Map
Life is absurd, but with a little effort we can make it completely ridiculous
It will be hard to have a mass market success with VR when there will never be a mass market for it.
As Verite brought up Whitewolf, I'll add that these fools killed off one of my favorite game settings so completely that we will probably not see another World of Darkness RPG published for a very long time. CCP incompetence destroyed a highly successful franchise. Thankfully Paradox rescued it.

Blizzard knows how to make decent games, unlike CCP. Taking CCP out of EVE would be the best thing to ever happen to the franchise. I doubt it's Blizzard looking to buy though.
Are you really going to ~sales numbers~ and ~mass appeal~ on...Eve?

I also think Ubisoft should buy Dwarf Fortress..
