    What a thing to wake up to. r/Eve has completely exploded over this. 9/6/2018: The day the "Eve is dying" became reality.

    Depending on who is asked, EVE Online was dying since the day it launched. I disagree, but whatever. Anyways, what the more rational of us EVE players want, is for PA to not meddle with something that works. If there is something that can be improved, then sure, But the vast majority of us are firm in the belief that the future of EVE is not in microtransactions. I never heard of BDO until about a week ago. Downloading it to give it a try. Really can't judge something by what a lot of other people are ranting about, without trying it myself.

    I play EVE and want this as well, but I'm not optimistic. I just wanted CCP to get a clue and stop trying to branch out and embrace the fact that their main product is niche and is better off remaining so.

    They bought their only competition sandboxwise. Smart move by PA, now everybody can AFK in both games peacefully.

    PA already stated that EvE will still be ran by CCP.


    Erm what?

    So your comparing a publisher (Kakao) to a Dev/ publisher of their own game (CCP)?

    Difference PA is the maker of BDO also theybown it and self publishes in another area and Kakao is just a publisher for NA/EU and I believe in a few others.

    CCP owns EvE and is the publisher for the game so they have control over what goes and doesn't. PA may have some input but can not compare Kakao to CCP lol

    What horrible news. I just cancel my Eve sub at this news. That's it PA will find someway to turn Eve Online into another casino in the form of a MMO. Hats off to CCP they lasted longer than a great majority of MMOs. "Eve is dying phase" has started.

    I don't believe that's the intent. Pearl Abyss has wanted a global build of BDO for some years now and are pushing for it. They described being very interested in EvE's ability to publish their MMO globally, as well as their ability to maintain players for years. They also said that CCP would continue to operate independently, as the LoL and Warframe devs do with their Chinese overlords.

    Here's the article from the Eve devs if anyone's curious https://www.ccpgames.com/news/2018/...earl-abyss-to-acquire-ccp-games-makers-of-eve

    Pearl Abyss is a very young studio as far as MMO development and management is concerned, and they are looking to address their inexperience via this move

    They have a lot of money, and in this case they've spent it well. As long as they don't go full EA and learn from CCP instead of gutting them, this is a massive improvement

    PA is obviously doing something right if they not only have their hands in a pot, but several companies pumping millions into their pot to get their games developed/published by them. Hell even Tencent is pumping money into them... TENCENT and Square Enix has been trying to get their hands on PA's in-house engine for years, (No SE... PA isn't giving you or anyone their engine no matter how much money you throw at them)

    eve is already highly P2W... it would take a long time to explain why, but you can buy plex sell for isk with isk you can buy another persons character from the bazaar who has all the skills, and then you have all the isk you need to buy the best ship and best modules from the market, and needless to say there is no lack in supply as eve online has one of the best if not the best economy in any mmorpg.

    Nice try..Not for $427 Million.
    "Right now, CCP is owned by a group of three big financial investors. They have been with us on this journey for over a decade with all our ups and downs and as is the business of financial investors, selling their shares at some point is part of the plan. Being acquired by Pearl Abyss means that..."

    This was a hostile takeover, and any Devs are going to be lucky to have their jobs come October..The investors dumped their shares, and PA either had a good amount to begin with, and just bought up the amount required to get to 51%, or etc..But the word "Acquired", means it was not a voluntary decision on the team that made EVE last as long as it has.

    That is not pay2win. That is a thriving ingame economy.
    Perhaps the only thing that makes EvE, ..EvE.
