Hi everybody!

As some of you may have noticed, the King of Lowsec event did not go off without some controversy. We declared Pandemic Legion the winner of the event and were prepped to fly their flag over CCP HQ. However, some people rightly complained about this decision. According to in-game kill reports, Urine Alliance appeared to be in the lead, thanks to their destruction of numerous CCP pods from the Dev Roam that were fitted with highly expensive Crystal implants and hardwirings.

Our initial intention with the King of Lowsec event was to encourage PVP and get players to blow each other up. We like seeing players explode. But in that last sentence you will see a very important word that we forgot to include in our rules (hint: it's the word "player"). Because of this, our intent did not square with our published rules. Compounding this was the fact our rules contained the clause "All kills which adhere to these guidelines will count, regardless of the circumstances surrounding them."

Once again, our intention there was to cover certain cases. For instance, if some alliance had decided they had a few extra Titans laying around and were willing to sacrifice them for this event to friendly fire, we were all for that. Or if there was a loss due to a bug or other issue, we were still going to count it, even if there was a reimbursement. And, once again, our intention was not clearly reflected in the actual rule.

Therefore, after a long bit of internal discussion, we have decided the only fair thing to do is revise our original announcement and instead announce the Kings of Lowsec:

Pandemic Legion AND Urine Alliance

We have already received a logo from Urine Alliance that we are in the process of having made into a flag. But because it's not done yet, we are going to have to delay putting up either flag until it is finished. Our original goal was to put the flag up June 1st and fly it until July 1st. We're not exactly sure how long it will take to get the flag printed, but we're hoping not too long.

In the end, both flags will be flown side-by-side for 1 full month. It may be from June 14th to July 14th, or whenever, but it will happen.

We apologize to everyone who has been negatively affected by this and we've definitely treated it as a learning experience for when we put together contests like this.

Bah, how can one share the Tritanium throne? This is definitely going to cause a succession war.

Given the name of the other alliance, couldn't you just pee on the PL flag and fly it?

There is only one Lord of Lowsec, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power.

That just goes to show how benevolent they are, willing to recognize not only a losing alliance, but someone that's barely in the top 5.

Props to CCP.

Since urine where so far down the list, this most likely means the king (Elendar) and his jester (grarr dex).

All my life i wanted to be someone, now i know i should have been more specific.

The real question however is what order will the flags be on the flag pole? Pretty sure we only have one flag pole, so one of those flags has to be above the other...

Just saying...
