We are pleased to announce that we have just concluded a lengthy meeting with a considerable portion of the Dust514 community and development teams, as well as upper management such as Executive Producer CCP Jian and Creative Director CCP Praetorian.

It was an opportunity not only to cover the the most urgent issues surrounding Uprising's deployment, but also to review the steps that CCP will be taking in the immediate future in order to fix some of the unexpected results that occured from Uprising's migration onto Tranquility. We also discussed many ways that CCP can ensure that you, the players and beta testers, receive more timely and comprehensive information about what exactly is being worked on (and why).

The contents of this meeting are being drafted up for release by CCP CommanderWang and CCP Frame, and will be posted shortly so that the public is in the loop with the CPM and CCP as to what took place. Rest assured this meeting was comprehensive – while the nitty gritty details will be hammered out in the days ahead, everything from general dissatisfaction with item balancing, to input issues, to the frustrations we've all shared with the new skill tree were discussed extensively.

The CPM is satisfied with CCP's timely and focused effort to take care of these issues in the days and weeks ahead, and we expect this to play out here in the forums as well. The CPM was adamant that with increased level of information and clarity, unnecessary noise can be reduced to that the best of your ideas reach the people they need to reach inside the development circle. This is in fact our primary purpose for existing in the first place – if we've done our jobs right, you'll be seeing more from CCP than you have in the past, and have more opportunities to give specific feedback in places you know you'll be heard, and see evidence of this as CCP continues to roll out fixes and updates to the game.

Not everything everyone would like to see will be ready by the 14th, lets be perfectly clear here – but the reason that the CPM asked for this meeting to begin with was to ensure there was both resources and process were in place to take care of the things we've noticed as issues between our Fanfest playtest, and what we've seen since Uprising's initial deployment on Tranquility.

We appreciate everyone's patience while you await further news, but we feel it is important for you to know that the community's concerns are being heard at the highest levels thanks to your representatives on the CPM. We also strongly encourage you to continue to send us your repeatable bugs, balancing advice, and other suggestions for us to use in our talks with CCP in order to expedite the process of improvement.

Good to hear feedback. As much as I keep spamming the 'F5' key, hoping for more blue posts, I understand this sort of thing takes time :P.

Kudos CCP/CPM!

EDIT: Oh, and CPM should really get their own forum Tags, just like DEV/GM's do.

i have mixed feeling about this.

this sounds too good to be true, what made CCP turn a 180 degree to their attitude? is this just an RP exercise? soon (tm) we shall find out (when things get fixed)

Probably has to do with the fact they have a focused group to talk to rather then people raging in threads.

good to see this, good for everyone.

I for one am pleased to see our CPM is being diligent and is forging a strong relationship with the programmers that DO have the power to modify the game in the best interests of everyone. That is the entire point of 'beta' testing anyway. In the past few days I have seen more constructive correspondence between players and devs, and undoubtedly some of that credit has to go to our CPM. keep it up and we can all have hope our grand vision we share with CCP about dust will happen!!

And after all this "serious" discussion was the decision made to rollback all the WEapon stats to previous build? Because this is the ONLY way to fix this..

Start there then make small adjustments to what needs work..

But im guessing it will be some halfway stealth buff for heavies, while the rest stays the same?

If the CPM truly intends to represent the Dust community then I would hope that they recognize the recent groundswell of support for a SP respec on the 14th of May.

I would ask that each member publicly support the recent player's initiative to get this done.

Thanks.

Just leave it alone at this point. Every thing got nerfed and people will get use to it. We will never get to know the strengths and weakness of gear if they are constantly making major changes to them.

Frankly I can speak for the entire council in that we are sick of "stealth" anything, really. All changes made should be transparently and openly, with a chance for your input before final decisions are made. Obviously this has not been the case in the past, and that's why we are at where we are at today in terms of game balance, but we've made it clear to CCP that it needs to be this way in the future. Getting there will take time, but I think the message was received loud and clear.

I'll be the first to start. You'll be happy to know that a full respec following an adjustment to the skill tree in order to reduce the overall SP requirement back in the direction of Chromosome-level train times was actually one of the primary "must-do" items on the CPM's agenda. Not only that, I think there is a strong possibility that we will see this, and see this within the month. No promises or dates here yet - but based on the positive reception from CCP I think this is quite likely at this point, enough to say so publicly.

I'm glad that CCP formed the CPM this early in the process so that players have someone to represent their concerns. Lack of timely, comprehensive and accurate information is definitely my number one concern.

Ill believe it when I see it. The ignorance CCP has shown with Uprising is extraordinary. All they had to do was take Chromosome and add stuff to it, but no. They just had to go and change the entire core of the game and kept us misinformed about what they were doing the whole way.

Stuff....?
