One point for EVE
As you might have noticed, I am not the world's biggest EVE fan. Having said that, I must admit that the CEO of CCP is completely right when he says:
Currently we are seeing _very predictable feedback_ on what we are doing. Having the perspective of having done this for a decade, I can tell you that this is one of the moments where we look at what our players do and less of what they say. Innovation takes time to set in and the predictable reaction is always to resist change.I used to blog a lot more about ideas I have on how to make MMORPGs better. But the instinctive knee jerk rejection by commenters of absolutely everything new makes talking about new ideas a very unpleasant experience.
