I'm confused, where did we announce that Burn Jita ends when Hulkageddon begins?



Oh that's right, we didn't.



For that matter, I don't remember telling anyone we were trying to "stop all trade" or anything, either. I mean, aside from you guys declaring that that was our goal. Ugh

I always thought the goal was to blow up people in high sec. Straight

Yeah pretty much. Really can't remember setting a definite number!

It's Sunday.

You wouldn't want to dispute the Mittani at his written word now would you ?

Shut up. You don't speak for Mittani. Burn Jita will be over when GSF says it's over. Go cry in a corner with your dunce hat.

That was an API bug that reported 200 covetor bpcs as bpos or something like that.

Sides, isn't the point of this is that it is never over? Nowhere is safe, ohnoes!

It better not be over. I heard that the main offensive would be Saturday night. So far, they have not delivered on their promise to trigger TiDi in the systems surrounding Jita. If this is all the legions of nullsec are capable of mustering, I must say I am sorely disappointed.

Jita is on it's own node. It's impossible to trigger TiDi from Jita.

A giant mech isn't going to fly into system and stick it's cannon **** into the docking bay of 4-4. Thousands of ships have been destroyed almost over night in a single system. I think that's pretty substantive. It's certainly more than I've blown up over my career, friend OR foe.

Cool

I wouldn't get too confident about Jita just yet. There is a certain psycology involved here. Goon has exhibited it for a long time. Basically, it goes like this: "There is nothing we can break." They'll keep on pushing the envelope. It's up to the rest of us to adapt.

When's you last time you killed 9594 ships? Goons may have just upstaged my entire piracy career in a couple of days. Shocked

But that would be totally ******* awesome if it did. It might look something like this.

I'm pretty sure that if it got to the point where CCP was saying 'Our paychecks are in danger!', that some 'things' would happen to ensure a happy high-sec population.

That said, where's CONCORD? I know that neutrals have been shot throughout this deal...

Concord has been blowing up the offending ships. Concord does not protect; they merely serve.

CCP are counting all the subscription money this event will generate. This is brilliant for EVE, the amount of fun and interest it has generated in game is only matched by the amount of coverage it seems to have generated outside the game as well.

Apart from about 20 or so industrialists who provided the "big" kills (and how they didn't get the burn Jita memo I don't know) pretty much everyone else is happy and having fun.

- Goon leaders upped their rep even further
- Goons and Co members got pew pew fun
- Some empire corps got to have pew pew fun with Goons
- People so inclined buffed their kill boards and ratios whoring goon kills off Concord
- Industrialists who made the hulls made a tidy profit
- Traders and speculators made loads of the market fluctuations
- Everyone else got something to talk about
- CCP have a game making the headlines in a number of places all over the net

Oh yeah and Concord got to prove that they rule lol.

Good for goons leadership for stumping up the few hundred billion in hulls this event cost. I am sure it is hardly a dent in the alliance wealth and that people pulling the strings had all the right investments in minerals in hulls behind the scenes to make make themselves rich anyway.

Burn jita is over whenever you want it to be. I lost a lot of Noctis today... was fun. Wish Jita was always like that... but it wasn't all that. Those who 'dares' to fly freighters did so with little concern. Maybe a few were lost but for the most part burn jita was way over hyped and not really that big of a deal. If you wanted to you could move pretty freely throughout the system. I think the privateers were way more disruptive than the goons and test though. Still... fun was had. Thanks

I saw that mail on eve-kill, it showed the Mittani himself ganking a rhea using an erebus in Jita. It was promptly removed Lol

Sure. Burn Jita is over. It's safe to take your freighters in now.
