EVE Online Melting Down

Ogre332 (145645) writes "There are stories about the current controversy in EVE Online like this one and this one popping up at numerous gaming sites. As a player, the one thing I can say is that the majority of the news reports are getting the story wrong. Players could care less that someone wants to spend $80 on a vanity item for their avatar. Players are pissed that CCP has blatantly lied about their intentions and have responded to these customers concerns by basically telling us they know what we want better than we do. If you consider that a recently leaked internal CCP newsletter added a significant amount of fuel to the fire, then a purported e-mail from CCP CEO HilmarPétursson was like throwing on a keg of gunpowder, and a response to some of these items in the form of a dev blog was not well received at all. People are claiming they are canceling their accounts left and right. Personally, I canceled both of my accounts last night and know of at least 3 friends in game who have canceled a total of 7 additional accounts. This may very well be the end of EVE Online as it was originally conceived."
