As an old horse of the Amarr militia, and knowing the years of service given by some. I support the creation and distribution of a medal to honor those who accomplished this great feat.

Well done guys.

At this point, two weeks have passed without any actual official mention of the Amarr/Minmatar warzone by CCP. Unlike previous events of grand scale which got pretty quick acknowledgement, this has gone the way of that odd smell that no one wants to bring up.

Medal or not, one CCP employee spending thirty seconds alt-tabbing form a development screen to type out a forum post would not have taken away from their progress towards Proteus. It could have been an entirely non-commital “Congrats Amarr Militia” and never mentioned a yes/no on the medal. That would have at least been something.

Considering that Faction Warfare is driven on internal community and was (at least in the past) something CCP put effort into (twice) to continue to keep alive and thriving, this seems to be a poor PR move. Not only does this send a very clear message to the Amarr players that they are not worth the accolades the Caldari and Gallente players were given, it sends an even clearer message to the Minmatar players. “Do not bother trying.”

FW people know me; normally I try to be constructive and forward moving with what I say. This post does not really follow that, which I apologies for. I have had little enthusiasm to even log in over the last week or so. It is just that this entire situation has me frustrated. EVE Online’s FW is something I spent the last five or so years helping move along.

Over the last year or two, what I have seen is a slow rot spreading through the two militias I have contact with (the Amarr and Militia). Dissatisfaction and apathy have worn down both groups of dedicated players which has heavily damaged the ability for either group to help build up newer players in to dedicated EVE fans. A big part of this comes from the poor response from CCP towards issues brought up by the FW community. This whole issue over the Amarr militias (and the future of a Minmatar militia) warzone medal really is feeling like a final nail in the coffin.

if we quickly take arnstur again, do we get two medals?

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Even if not, it's a real good thing to shut down all that pesky pvp people are in FW for.

i don't understand. we went for huola at tier 1. what has a system without a station in it to do with shutting down pvp? What has warzone control to do with pvp?

also, u are not even in FW which confuses me even more.

Er what? Come on Zen we were telling you guys this 2 years ago and you all gave the amarr the finger and laughed. I'm sure your ex militia will come back stronger like we did and one day it'll all flip the other way.

Agreed. A simple "we hear you" would have been appreciated. We're clearly not hard to please, or we would have left FW long ago.

SO THEY TOOK A PICTURE OF??? not total warzone control and posted it?

not everybody uses facebook either, infact this game, these are the FORUMS, everything should be announced on THESE forums not some 3rd party site. that **** should have been posted in general discussion or something.

i agree completely with jhaelee, this is extremely disappointed as me and many of my fellow pilots have put many years into FW and to finally achieve something that we fought for even before it was cool and not get even a hint of a reward.... i feel burned by ccp.

if fw is supposed to be the place where new pilots come to experience pvp and invent a reason to pvp, where the largest small ship combat takes place IN THE GAME, you better take care of it.

THIS IS NOT TAKING CARE OF IT.

chill, CCP is basically on collective winter vacation. If there is still no response by mid january i would agree with you. (the picture you linked was btw taken by tikktokk and posted to reddit, CCP posted it on twitter and facebook shortly after)

And where have you been after burn Huola? I think the one thing that got burned most was you.
Being in Amarr militia means actually doing something, not sitting in your chair on an unknown alt smirking every time you see another system taken.
