Winter Expansion Details & News of a "Humbler CCP"

Winter Expansion Details & News of a "Humbler CCP" - EVE Online -

CCP Zulu has posted the latest EVE Online developer blog outlining the Winter 2011 Expansion and the "refocusing" of the game in the coming months. A second letter from CCP Hellmar is specifically addressed to those who are "disenchanted" with EVE and with CCP.

In the post starts off with a bang: "As we said we are planning something unparalleled. A significant part of that plan is the immediate refocusing of all the EVE development teams on EVE’s core gameplay: spaceships."

In addition to that announcement, Zulu listed the systems and features that the team will be spending  or has already spent significant time "refocusing":

No specific timeframe has been announced as to when the Winter 2011 update will go int effect. Zulu did indicate, however, that these changes would "be on Tranquility well before Christmas."

The second letter on the site is from CCP Hellmar and contains a heartfelt apology to the EVE Online community:

The estrangement from CCP that many of you have been feeling of late is my fault, and for that I am truly sorry. There are many contributing factors, but in the end it is I who must shoulder the responsibility for much of what has happened. In short, my zeal for pushing EVE to her true potential made me lose sight of doing the simple things right. I was impatient when I should have been cautious, defiant when I should have been conciliatory and arrogant when I should have been humble.
