    It's almost 2018 and there's still no way to really interact with the game on a mobile device. Their shitty eve app doesn't even have proper ipad support. A hundred thousand players bought into your shit already, expand the eco-system instead of pissing on them. Everything they do is Dust all over again.

    Not exactly a huge amount of choice in Iceland for potential partners either.

    Sheep.
    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

    So here's the deal: CCP CEO Hilimar Veigar Peturisson has, for the third time, tried to expand CCP in to another game and failed miserably. The end result is some really cool people in CCP were laid off. I think it's time to apply lots of pressure to get Hilimar to "resign" (read: be fired) from CCP.

    The plan:
    Step 1: Identify who actually owns CCP:
    We have a 2015 filing of CCP's financials. It identifies the stock owners of CCP. The challenge here is two-fold: The filing is two years old (shares might have been sold.) and most of the companies that own non-trivial portions of CCP seem to be Icelandic. We would need to find someone who speaks Icelandic to call these companies and verify they still own parts of CCP, how much, and if not, who they sold their share to. We would also need contact info (emails and phone numbers) for step 4.

    Step 2: It's time to Rage
    Get everyone to cancel their subscriptions. Make a Google docs form for people to post in to. The person would need to submit their characters name and am imgur link to a screenshot verifying they cancelled their subscription. Pull out a few classics like rioting in Jita, etc.

    Step 3: Get media attention
    Lots of cancelled accounts and riots over the most recent layoffs is an easy news story to write. Media attention is bound to get stockholder attention.

    Step 4: Tighten the screws
    Using the contact info for the stock holders we get all of the Eve players to call, email, write letters, etc. to the stock holders demanding Hilimar resign as CEO and be replaced. An overwhelming tide of calls and emails notifying them that the players who unsubbed are going to stay unsubbed until Hilimar is given to boot will hopefully get their attention. Another round of easy media stories.

    Step 5: Keep up the pressure
    Email every day. Call every day. Stay unsubbed. The stock holders listen to money and annoyance. Not making as much money because of the unsubbed players plus having a slammed email inbox and a phone that won't stop ringing will hopefully get them to realize the easiest and best things to do is get Hilimar to resign.

    Thoughts?
    HELL YES! Hilimar is a total jackass agree he needs to go.

    There's no Devs for us.
    There's no updates for us.
    What is this game that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us?

    I want to play EvE forever!
    Can I play EvE forever?

    There's no sandbox for us.
    It's all decided for us.
    This game had only one sweet moment set aside for us.

    Who wants to play EvE forever?
    Can we all play EvE forever?

    I want to solo roam
    Then blobs must die!

    But hear my tears with your TS,
    When I recall the days of nanoships,

    And we can play EvE forever,
    And we can play EvE forever.
    For EvE is our today.

    Who wants to play EvE forever?
    Who wants to play EvE forever?
    For EvE is our today.

    Until Star Citizen reaches beta someday?

    For what it's worth -

    Tonight I bought some space armour and some space weapons. I picked a suitably badass space ship - I walked into it and sat down in the pilot seat. I then picked a destination , jumped to it and flew my ship manually through the atmosphere and landed. I waked out of my ship and then explored some habitats. I did this to several planets / moons all in glorious 4k.

    Then I cancelled my EvE subscription which has been running since jan 2005.

    EvE Just died.
