Seven hundred dirty eggers piled into local to blob the THREE so-called Caldari Outlaws because CONCORD said "jump". The Amarr Navy (hence the Apoc Navy Issues) sponsored Pandemic Legion, notorious mercenaries, to protect the wrongfully accused while they searched for their own information. The Factions may be showing a unified front against the Provist pilots, but there are several back-end deals being made to ensure the safety of these men, and we are happy to oblige if the price is right. I'm usually not one to kiss and tell, but the Serpentis Corporation is our next benefactor and donating all the ships we may need.

A few thoughts here, both good and bad:


More live events - good. Allows CCP to build out the lore and engage players.

Distributed across the timezones - good and long overdue. CCP has a global player base; important to give everyone a chance to join the event if desired.

Reward structure - bad. All the current structure does is ensure that the large alliances who choose to engage will sweep the prizes. CCP needs to provide a mixture of awards - some for damage as done, but far more at random to encourage participation. And yes - final blow is random but what are the chances that non-large alliance players will still be on grid when the target dies.


I've never participated in any of the events thus far because of timezone/"effort"; might this time but only because its there, not because I or any of my corpmates have any hope of receiving any of the prizes. And no, random fleets put together will not standup to organized pvpers.

Nice event. Ought to be another crowd example of right chaos. Great opportunity for right minded player pirates to pick off the weak and stupid as the event ships get taken down. And at the end scoop up the loot corpse in a covert ops cloaked ship to scoot away to cries of woe and shame.


But...CCP could bring this jolly spirit to EVE every day with the right PLEX detection modules and structures. Well rare random times anyways.

Just add personal stealth PLEX detection with onboard modules. PLEX detection towers near hi sec gates making any ship with PLEX in cargo pulse bright green. Maybe even flash the number of PLEX contained for high meta/T2 versions of detections. Or if CCP wants to keep code simple just broadcast ship name and # PLEX in chat as ship passes PLEX detection tower.

Anyone who moves around PLEX for market speculation deserves to lose those PLEX and the ship they are in.

The top damage for rookie ship category seems to be missing, but I'm sure you'll fix that oversight soon.

Published an ingame view about this engagement: Provist Tovas Tagahaiken engaged in Akkio!

It is heavely PL slanted, but tbh, they did earn it, they arrived, took control of the battlefield and assured that through their actions, the PLEX payout was maximized towards them. This is a very standard operation for any organized fleet engaging a target to maximize rewards.

Note, if you got screenshots or somesuch from the event, it would be nice Big smile I forgot making them Cry Also, the report will be upgraded with killreports once they're updated on the Killboards.

Edit: only 1 killreport missing, from the Third Dragonaur Navy raven (he died fairly early in the fight, or has fled, causing a lack of killmail)

Festering cauldrons of PVP and opportunism abound in these live events.


All it needs is more cowbell.

First, CCP definitely has had in-game rewards for past live events. Think of all those uber nice drops from past dev roams.


Dev roams are not & never have been considered Live Events.
They are Dev roams, a totally different thing with no connection at all to actual game lore. This is the first 'Live Event' offering any real reward at all, and it's a crazy large reward. And as the first event showed, it's going to be gamed by already existing large entities. Credit to them for being organised sure, but they are doing it purely for the rewards which ends up detracting from the event, not adding to it.

Can't blame PL for snagging all the PLEX. But I can blame CCP for not seeing this happening.


Especially when I told them so well in advance.

Quit bitching. PL deserve to win because they put the numbers and the effort in. There are plenty of other Null and maybe even some Low alliances that could have put up a fight / made arrangements to work together before hand.

High sec will likely be more interesting as allot of PL are Neg 10 therefore they cannot bring the kind of fleet they took today.

Either get out there and start making some connections, grouping up and being social in your MMO or quit complaining when someone does the whole MASSIVE MULTIPLAYER thing better. Think dont *****.

First off, let me congratulate PL for winning the lewt. Well done and well deserved!

As for our friend here who seems a bit upset about us getting the lewt. Do not despair. We were here in an harpy fleet to kill the participants. Most line members of Goonswarm already have enough isk coming in from the production lines, anomalies and complexes in our space. Thanks to our DEAREST LEADER who is also the chairman of the shadow CSM which is the SPACE ILLUMINATI, we have so much plex we sometimes undock on our empire alts in noobships with plex in our cargoholds to get rid of them. Because we love you all. :)

I was a member of an approximately 50 player strong Cal Mil fleet of sniping destroyers and had a blast.

We didn't really expect to score any loot or be on grid for prizes but had a lot of fun warping all about system and ganking players from all factions and walks of life.


CCP I commend you for a lot of things done right on this one:
+ Various time zones and days so everyone should realistically get a shot at participating in this
+ Announcing the constellation last minute without any mention of a staging system so getting there was TIDI free as people came from all sorts of directions
+ Properly reinforced node for the system so TIDI was only occasional and always manageable


Here are a few things I think would improve the event though:
+ Adding participation medals or awards (similar to ranks or corp medals) or an Item redemption for attending the event. This way no body leaves empty handed as I suspect with several PLEX on the line that organized groups like PL will continue to sweep them.

+ If or when this goes down in high-sec, everyone on grid should go suspect, if this just becomes an NPC shoot I'll be sorely disappointed.

So in highsec (where the ships we're hunting can't go anyway) we can only shoot them and not each other (unless we are at war)? i.e. we wont get suspect flags ourselves for shooting these ships?

No plans to mass suspect flag everyone. However, normal crimewatch mechanics apply (so for example, providing remote assistance to a suspect or someone engaged in a limited engagement will give you a suspect flag).

So pretty much if you are logi don't bother turning up to the high sec events unless you love being the target for everyone. *sighs* Since it doesn't matter if you shoot the target first, it still turns you suspect. Even with identical LE's.

Nothing funner than fighting a fleet of dev's with carrier reps whilst in a fleet with no effective logi..!!!!

Atleast if there does manage to be a HS instance it will be more or less the players who survive the dev's dmg long enough to get on the mail...if the player fleets can push through the capital reps with their buffer fits.

So defensive it's cute. No really, do go on, let me just grab more coffee.
