CCP Hires Ex-VP of EA

That’s right CCP just hired Sean Decker as their senior VP of product development he was previously with EA as their VP of the group “play4free”. The forums for eve-online are already alive with rage as players assume that this is the start of a bad road for CCP. As you are all likely aware EA gained a reputation for nickel-and-dimming every customer at any possible moment they can. Not to mention their poor implementation of recent games and how poorly they treat their customers. I hope that he is ex-VP for a good reason such as “EA has a terrible marketing plan” though as VP I don’t even know if that would be a valid excuse. The only thing that is sure at this moment is that Decker will have to prove himself to the eve community quickly because if he doesn’t they will chew him up and spit him out in three months. I think it is too early to tell if this will be a poor choice for CCP games or not, but if Hilmar himself was not able to get his way with the Micro-transactions when Incarna was released I doubt this guy would stand a chance. So relax, and lets see what happens we can always riot again
