Subject says it all.

Quote:
Empire Navies put out call for capsuleer Assisantce


10% Tidi 5 j out to rally point (Sarum Prime)

10% Tidi the 16 j to the second rally point (Ihal)

Tidi the few jumps to the last destination ... by then i was numb and not paying attention




No real communication from gm/event host

Lots of secrecy on locations apparently to keep people from ruining the event

ONLY to include those people in the end.

I want that hour of my life refunded to me Shocked



Good Job CCP ...


NEXT time just open a wormhole and let people drop in


PS: Please point me in the direction of this post to remind me why I shouldnt bother in another live event ...

This was bad, really bad. Not well thought out, not well executed, and basically just shoveling people into null killzones...

For PvP; Hilarious.

For Event; Dafuq?

How to event:

Step 1: Force people to travel for shitload of time

Step 2: Get them in null

Step 3: Get them all podded and laugh

Step 4: ???

Step 5: Profit!

I fully endorse and agree with the OP.

This dog's breakfast was a disgrace to behold and an insult to the experience of the vast majority of players.

It was a relief to get podded in Doril and save the rest of my spare time for something more meaningful, ingame or out.

CCP... good intentions and a great idea though it was.... you should apologize for the shoddy manner in which this event was conducted.

Don't get me wrong ... Goons did what Goons do best -- screw with people... Twisted... but the organizer of this event failed on a simple point... and that is this: a GREAT IDEA can be totally ruined by a lack of common sense in the planning stage.

You overlook the idea that that may have been the intended design to begin with.

100% op success


Blanking signatures doesn't seem to work, so this is here.

We're always mad at CCP anyway.

this event was complete **** although I shouldn't be surprised since ccp hasn't been able to run competent events since they let go all of their live event staff.

We ask that any capsuleer who wishes to protect civilized space gather up at our two rally points in Sarum Prime and Meves on November 7 for departure at 18:50.”


I stage in Meves and then proceed to get told to go to stacmon which is about 6 jumps away in 10% tidi. what the **** were you thinking? If you want us to ******* go through stacmon have us meet up in ******* stacmon. We lost half our participation to frustration with tidi and from there the event actors left everyone to their own devices because they had no real comprehensive way to communicate with the players other than in local and praying that we'd spread the word. What the **** CCP? make ******* separate event channels at the very least.

CCP.....
I really like the idea of the event......

But it turned in to a massive trap / gate camp that is typical in null. Totaly pointless. Great for Razer alliance Though :-D
Never made it in to the event endpoint and was TOTAL chaos the entire time.

Horible TiDI.

If i knew that the event was a bunch of ships blindly flying to their death (Did get 1 kill though lol!) I would have skipped entirely.
waste of isk, waste of time.

Would have been smart to clear the bubbles on the route to allow people to actually participate. Let me tell you, would have loved to participate as something other than total cannon fodder due to TiDI and lack of event planning.

Next time think it out ccp :-)

I reactivated my account for this ... WOW!

Edit: From later in thread

To all you null secers not understanding the issue here! Yes we have tears ... NO they are not for you! They are reserved exclusively for CCP.

This is not an issue with dieing, this is not an issue with TiDi. this is not an issue with bubbles or null sec mechanics.

This is simply an issue of not delivering on a promise.

When CCP says "Live Event" that sets certain expectations into play. When CCP fails on those explanations then THAT is the issue.

If I was signing up for a dangerous mission through dangerous territory and died in a ball of fire thats OK!
If I was signing up for a trip into null sec and got owned then that's OK!
If I was signing up for a massive fleet fight and due to the sheer mass of it then we were all TiDi'd to all hell then thats OK!

Those situations are all fine, but today those of us that logged on to partake in a Live Event and got anything but a Live Event ... that's the issue at hand.

A Live Event is not hours of unneeded TiDi travel through highsec! (Again TiDi itself is fine)
A Live Event is not hours of directionless mayhem with no input from those running the event.

You all think we are a bunch of whiners, however you just happen to see our forums. I know from personal experience there is plenty of whining going on behind the Goons forums. "Wha! This FC did this! Wha! This FC did that!"

Imagine spending hours following an FC around in 10% TiDi then you don't get to shoot or engage in anything and it was ALL ON PURPOSE by the FC ... then come back to us and say "Yes I am fine wasting hours of my time doing nothing of importance on purpose and I have no issue with that FC that wasted my time."

For PvP; Hilarious.

Doril:
- 169 pods killed in the last hour
- 330 ships killed in the last hour

I'm going out on a limb but am guessing the second group from meves is

8v-sjj:
- 246 pods killed in the last hour
- 444 ships killed in the last hour



GREAT EVENT if you're lucky enough to be in a 0.0 power block Cool

The empire navies have titans, don't they? Quick suggestion; bridge the empire loyalists straight into the system where things are happening next time?

Yup :-) Event was geared to the Null Power Blocks. Aka no chance for any one not in a block to really participate.
75% of the event, getting through tidi.
5% of the event, getting slaughtered at a bubble camp
20% of the event, trying to extract and evac.
