This must have been an extremely difficult decision to make.

CCP must have known that it was not going to please very many.

I still think Alex/Mittani could have taken the high road and possibly avoided this, but since his response was more "I want to be free to do worse," I can't say I blame CCP.

Have to say I applaud the courage, and hope it turns out to be the right course for the game in the long run.

The only end-game content in EVE Online is the crap that makes you rage quit.

CCP really likes to screw over its player base by removing one of their voices from the csm.

or how about how stupid that only 15% voted for csm! thats 85% disregarded by a stupid policy! thats like 300 000 disregarded players every time they do csm...

People who do not take the time to vote do not have the right to complain when the election does not go the way they want it.

or how about you just voted for the cfc leader cuss you were told too... instead of reading about the other CSM peeps and voting with your head... you voted like a good drone... and now you are paying for it...

get a grip mate there is always next year!


Are you really trying to tell me Darius III is a fantastic choice?

Come on, I want you, the horse's mouth, to tell me Darius III would be a fantastic CSM.

We're going to make every last one of you pay for this. Kiss your favorite market hub good bye.

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.

CCP, you literally better give me my assfucking vote back. I'm Irish and can legitimately live with the illusion of democracy where my elected representative makes no decisions, but deposing the people's King of Space goes too far.

I propose that you give all those who voted for Mittani their votes back, which will now become STV votes.

why not every player voted... only 15% of the player base voted remember...

and you voted for a person who broke eula/tos... thats not ccps fault... you voted for a idiot... thats your fault... not mine...

two step is now the logical chioce... and the next person inline who did not get voted in should now be the 14th csm... plain and simple...

your brosefs....

deal wit it!

Yet that isn't how a electoral system works.

Cripes, can't believe how many pubbies have little to no brain cells to comprehend how an election works.

care the cite the president in internet spaceship democracy that supports a re election clause when a csm breaks eula?

I would contest you, but your poor grasp of grammar and spelling just ruins it for me.

CCP please ban this guy! His huge wall of non-important quoted text offends me and made my Canadian kickboxing girlfriend talk about moving out. She I am not suicidal yet, but she is the only thing that is keeping me together!!!!

As a participating voter, I find this unacceptable, and I didn't even vote for Mittani on every account. This calls into question the legitimacy of this process and the CSM as an organization elected by players.

Still waiting on you to explain the whole TOS applicable in a RL situation thing here...

fanfest feed is linked to the forums...

official ccp broadcasts are subject to tos...

by breaking tos you loose your right to be on this years CSM and get an auto 30 day ban...

no if and or butts about it!

CCP of old never would have made this decision.

The guy who got dudes to sing their national anthem and posted their name all over the panel. Is he banned too?

March 22 - The Mittani makes an ass of himself at Alliance Panel - attended by CCP - broadcast by CCP

March 24 - CCP announces results of CSM elections and introduces new CSM

announcing "Congratulations to the delegates. Alexander Gianturco (The Mittani) has re-won the chairman position having won the most votes of the delegates this election. He is also the first candidate to exceed the 10,000 vote mark. This CSM will take office on April 4th, and their first order of business will be to decide upon the vice-chair, secretary and vice-secretary positions."

March 26 - CCP announces "internal investigation" of events that happened before their own eyes but was irrelevant until the press gave them trouble

March 28 - CCP bans The Mittani, strips him of CSM 7 position and disenfranchises the "first candidate to exceed the 10,000 vote mark."

Interesting timeline? Where was the outrage on Mar 23 CCP?

Ban yes, remove from chair yes - removal from CSM was too far.

the right decision

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

First time in years I've heard such WONDERFUL news on the eve forum. I think I'll do a little dance.

On a sidenote, I really don't care about what happened, I see that as "normal" in eve honestly nowadays. But if that thing got a goon rear end firmly parted by a boot on his way out the door... Then it's a freaking celebration to me. Where's a party emoticon when you need it?

You might want to invalidate that CSM election seeing as you just removed over half of the votes.

Everyone crying about you 10k idiots who voted for him.

Hey, go vote for a CSM style person in ANY OTHER GAME.

You can't?

Ya STFU and HTFU that CCP even ALLOWS this voting. I'd just remove the CSM at this point if I was ccp.

You all know you won't quit over the removal of the worthless CSM.

Bunch of babies should not even be allowed to vote.

We should probably remove scamming and suicide ganking from eve too, I'm sure those aspects of the game will generate some bad publicity for CCP at some point.

Hell, remove everything that could offend anyone. Darius 3 for CSM chair. Ron Paul for president.

this is pretty dumb. i didn't vote him because he has a soul patch, but 10 thousand votes is sort of a lot in this small community.

banning him for 30 days on top of it all is equally stupid. why not just be complete cowards and ban alcohol at fanfest? it's about as lame.

anyone who would potentially play the game known as eve online isn't going to be drawn to it because of this coddling you now hear about in the press. they, like everyone else here, was drawn to the game because of its utter cruelty and praise for such acts.

oh well.

in case anyone from ccp who has a brain actually reads this: consider this compromise: make mittens shave off his chinstrap soul patch, and all will be forgiven.

So the great dictator gets 30 day ban, and others who did something similar (you remember the "die in a fire guy"?) get perma banned. Good job CCP.
