Its not all feedback

Most of what we do on the CSM is feedback on various stuff so its nice once in a while to help in a different way.

A couple months ago CCP Falcon posted a Dev blog. We knew a bit more about it. I was super excited about this. CCP wanted videos and some of the best videos out there are wormhole fights. They often have various class of ships from cruisers up to capitals, but being small to medium scale you can zoom in and get a real feel for the size difference between sub caps and capitals, you can see all the effects happening and whats going on, rather than it be a view that's super zoomed out with just dots.

After a couple hours I managed track done the CCP Dev (CCP Prawn) who was working on this and have a chat to him about it on skype. I sent him a load of links for various videos of our fights as well as a link to the W-space PvP videos thread.

We spoke a bit about what sort of stuff he was looking for as well formats and stuff, I suggested about some wormhole PvE since (while boring) its pretty cool for new people to  see capitals and subs used to kill red crosses, It turns out thats also something he wanted to try and get filmed.

A quick chat to NoHo and it was all sorted. Both CCP Prawn and CCP Zond 3 moved themselves in to Polaris cloaked, We started to run sites and they recorded it all. Was a few funny things CCP Zond 3 decloaking, and the our scanner trying to scan him down straight away.

CCP Prawn asking me if it was ok to thank NoHo in local, showing great wh etiquette.

I put a post up on the wormhole forum and while it didn't get as much response as i'd have liked. I did get loads of skype messages asking about it and if CCP wanted to come and film them while they did stuff, so that was pretty nice. Its also worth mentioning just how important getting a blue post on the forums is as that hugely attracts attention, its something I always try to take advantage of and something I think CCP could make much better use of. In this case CCP Zond 3 was good enough to post on it.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the end results from the CCP Dev blog.
