We need to post one before the other, so that we can harvest the links. I just published this first. (shhh, don't tell anyone)

In the dev blog, the link to the dev blog describing the process of creating the wrecks is dead. Has that even been published yet?

BTW, are there any plans to put that particular server node in a museum? It performed all day like a total baws

Great summary. Will be the place to point anyone who asks about B-R from now on.

The first paragraph after 'time Dilation' has a smaller fontsize than the rest of the blog. Is is supposed to be like that?

You linked a video of the first one to die in combat and its goons killing shrike.

The first to die in combat was Steve in C9N

Very cool dev blog. I particularly enjoyed the stats. Thanks for keeping the node up and making it all possible, you've really outdone yourselves CCP.

Well done CFC.

The blog The Art of Rubicon 1.1 has been published around the same time as this blog here, it just took a few moments to appear.

How many titans are left, if 75 were killed? The total used to get published in the QEN but I don't recall if we have seen a recent number?

Nice blog for those who are trying to cover the event.

However the simple fact is that even without module lag 10% tidi just isn't fun. I hope you have something planned that's aimed at fixing this, be it multithreading, change in sov mechanics or whatever. Despite the scale of this fight and HED-, neither were fun at all. Maybe it's just that I'm just a bitter vet at this stage, who knows.

That wasn't destroyed in combat, that was destroyed while logged off because it had been secretly agressed (at the time it was not possible to destroy a titan in combat).

Nope, and you likely won't be seeing numbers like that anytime soon. I'm very much against CCP handing out 100% accurate and important, tactical and economic information to our players about the sandbox. If you want to know how many active titans there are atm, there are plenty of excellent killboards to mine for data! Twisted

On one hand I'm not that interested in which coalition clashes with which other; When I read the tweets on Monday, I shrugged it off (still well aware the implications, mind you).

But during the aftermath, when I can read about such an event even in local (!) news, then I'm pretty proud to be still logging in after all these years. Stay unique, EVE.

Well, they oughta know what to do with them hogs out there for shure.
