Let me see now, as a concerned parent researching the news to see if Dust is a game I would like to use my credit card for to pay for my son's or daughters gameplay would I be encouraged by this message?

The hilarious thing? All these sites are citing each other, who are all citing a known anti-Goonswarm troll blog. This is quite literally a manufactured scandal by a bunch of crybabies who can't stand the idea that Mittani got THE BIGGEST MANDATE IN EVE HISTORY.

In short:

You mad, pubbie? It sounds like you're mad. Definitely could be mad.

The die is cast.

This bonehead screwed up, apologized, and is now being dragged further underwater by his constituency.

I'm still waiting for step 2.

Players are shocked when EVE, a game renowned for its cruelty and harshness, generates cruel and harsh commentary/behavior. Who ever would have thought such a result would be possible?

Well it didn't work well for me. Who knows, Mittani is a special person according to the CFC.

Xython, you are ******* moron.

This is by a massive margin the worst publicity blow for CCP in the history of EVE, and the only one to blame for it is The Mittani. You have to be really thick not to see that.

And you know what? CCP would lose nothing by booting him from the chair. No game company in the world wants this kind of publicity, and if it comes to the choice of replacing the chairman, it's a pretty easy decision between money and a few butthurt goons.

And fwiw, I could have voted for him and still could, it was a drunken joke went bad, but the fact is that it simply looks terrible to outsiders. No trolling, whining or this internal shitstorm can change the amount of damage this caused to EVE's public image.

I'm curious to see if the story escapes niche markets and hits more popular "news" sites.

This can turn into good publicity for CCP if they address the issue appropriately. So far they've made a stab at it, but they haven't gone far enough. They need to do another press release clearing the air as to what the panel was, what will happen (if anything) to The Mittani, that they offered the player (The Wis) a free name change, and what their Suicide Watch policy entails.

They can totally swing this into showing off what CCP and EVE Online does to assist those with challenges.

Or they can allow the story to grow on its own and become something very negative to the community.

It's sort of ironic that internet spaceship politicians and their supporters can take the CSM chair so seriously.

And then when their very own internet spaceship constituents call out in Jita protest, they're all suddenly "u mad bro?"

Spaceship protest!!!
It's now part of the game, whether you like it or not.

The Mittani already promised that he would step down. He is a non-factor now. For him to break that promise would destroy the fail that everyone has placed in him, and would undermine the whole point of him being there.

Once he has been replaced, things will simmer down. Its good that he is a man of his word, though. It would look terrible if he found some excuse to avoid it. "Oh well, guess I cant leave after all! Tooooo bad"
