This was a bit special and has given me my wood back. It made me feel incredibly proud and incredibly small at the same time, the 'I was there!' aspect of Eve means we'll be re-telling the story of that time we accidently 59 enemy titans years after we stop playing this game.


Props everyone involved.

So, a fight that should have taken 2.1 hours from start to finish actually took 21 hours out of peoples lives?

It actually takes me back to my old dial-up modem and BBS days, when I played a game called 'Trade Wars' that required me to make a move, log off and await other people in the system to make a move when they logged in, and so on. CCP has saved us from logging off and back on again in between moves though with TiDi, a tremendous achievement since dial up BBS gameplay to be sure!

No mention of the 8-900,000 crew members that died on the capships alone, and probably half as much again from all the smaller stuff…

Such disdain for the poor working man. Cry

"Titanomachy.”

Excellent. We shall have the monument so many of us as desired and requested.
Well-done, CCP, and our thanks.
Cool

You still on that hobby horse? Give it up. TiDi is the only reason such a battle *could* have happened, and your continued and willful inability to grasp that is both wearisome and comical.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Haters gonna hate. Otoh, if he had some higher agenda with this...

hahaha then I'd fire him for being a wannabee and a failure.

Hey Harkonnen... need a marketing expert? ^^

Leviathans need to be the new meta. In the largest Titan massacre of all times, the leviathans could not be touched.

It always amazes me how one organization can be so shizophrenic yet still plod on year after year. The contrast of this beautiful, incisive, and seamless effort with the arrogant and clueless hamfisting of the various third party and related eula rewrite disasters is utterly night and day. I don't understand how all these people operating under such vastly different ethos can function without turning CCP HQ into some post-apocalyptic lord of the flies devolution.

Dolan can actually write a decent blog. There's something I never would have bet real money on.

Good stuff!

CCP Best game developers. We ask, they deliver!

Besides, if I were CCP I too would have squirmed all over the place on a battle that both brought new resolve to existing players, new stimuli to the economy and a great press coverage which will perhaps bring in new subscriptions.

Need more well-formatted linking.

Hey bro, 99% of the people who were there dont care and had a blast and would x up again. They have made great strides in enabling us to do BIG THINGS and it can only get better.

It was indeed an excellent blog, but it lacked:
* Usage of pink
* Watermark
* Hand-drawn art
* Animated GIF
So the title still remains with CCP Masterplan for Warp Drive Active - Warp Acceleration Changes With EVE Online: Rubicon

yeah! because back in the day, or in any other current modern mmo, if you want to face off against another 2000 unique people, that could take days, or up to a week, with most pvp encounters in competing mmo's capping at, 40 a side...
