I'm not forgetting it. I think if you read it again you will notice that I clearly stated they are tweaking both sides.

CCP disagree, IIRC Burn Jita was described by the senior producer as ***king brilliant.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I don’t like complete security, and I do like when a large group of players who live in complete security have that pulled away temporarily. It’s going to be healthy.


Will this version live up to the first Burn Jita? Only time will tell but in any event, let the games begin!

Someone bought a bunch of polarized mega pulse in Jita recently. I wonder if this has something to do with it?


Nah, those will be going on a nightmare for ratting/incursion running.

Polarised weapons come with the penalty of a zero resist lineup. I doubt these would be fitted to an incursion ship and I'd be surprised if they were fitted to a ratting setup either, especially short range weapons. They tend to be used for undefended structure bashes and ganking.

Or the buff to freighter EHP from the damage control rebalance, which they can't even fit; that occured immediately afterwards, which was specifically noted by CCP as designing ganking nerfs-buffs in pairs to keep it in balance.

But, selective memory and lots of rage about ganking is the Dracvlad way.

From the live streams I saw they were doing a pretty good job taking freighters out at a good clip...

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

I'd like to see CCP intervene, with yet again some pathetic EULA change because of it.

I guarantee you, if people goons and co, could keep burn jita going permanently, CCP would come out with some sort of excuse as to why "you can't gank in Jita" anymore.


Poor Goons, they are trapped in there with all the scammers. We should organize a fleet to go and save them. No one deserves that kind of slow death.

However if you Goons are holding you own trapped in Jita, I'm with the person above. Can you please make "Burn Jita" permanent? My reason is the scammers. All trapped in there, wonderful! I'll donate to that cause if you can pull it off.

Sucks to be a freighter anywhere in Caldari high-sec space right now... And the scammers aren't 'trapped' unless they didn't consider establishing a jump clone outside of Jita. Either way, I have zero sympathy for them (that they have nothing to do this weekend and won't be scamming anyone).

I am currently away, traveling through time and will be returning last week.

There are also people using them in incursions and mission running, especially the pulse because scorch.

Missions and ratting I can see. Incursions - you have to have a pretty big pair to pull that off with Polarized weapons...

Some people use em to see big numbers on structure bashes at the end of one of the sites. There's no rats around at that point so you can drop a mobile depot, fit the guns, and shave a few seconds off the structure bash. Not really the most efficient thing though, considering the refitting timer. That's why most people don't do it.

I watched someone change ships with a cloaked Orca he kept at 90km. I thought it bizarre at the time but now not so much....

So logging in, parked in Jita is a no go, wondering what the player limit for that zone is at the moment.

The scammers are adapting. Travel permits. Burn permits Pirate
