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


They are having a party at the Perimeter gate.

Over or not, for what it's worth just wanted to thank GSF, TEST, and their many friends/allys for a kick ass time and a great event. Burn Jita, Hulkageddon, and others like it are definitive examples that set EVE far and above many of the other games out there.

Hope you guys do this again soon.

On another note I got in and out in a Iteron mark III nobody even tried to get a lock on me Sad should have taken the mark V.

I recall one night in a nightclub called the matrix, there I was... Mother of god there I am! Holy f**k.

Cool

Pffft! My final observation on this whole thing is this:

If you place buy orders at Jita, forget it for awhile. Put your buy orders elsewhere. Those of us that thoroughly understand EVE markets will find those buy orders in short order and come to you to sell. Doesn't much matter where it is, as long as it isn't in low-sec. Like a particularly large and uncomfortable turd, the Jita disruption will eventually come to pass.

How funny. Expected more than that.

Oh well, I've heard that a wounded animal always bellows just before it dies.

I guess it's true judging from this thread.

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.


Ha, ha. You are comparing your career to the combined might of the strongest alliance in null? They said they were going to burn Jita, but this hardly caused a hiccup in Jita commerce. The least they could do is lay siege to Jita and all surrounding systems for a week or two.

what 10,000 ships get killed

28 freighters

roflmao werent those your main targets? lol

Frigates, Battlecruisers and destroyers over 4500 - almost half are the ganking ships?

I dont chalk this up as a win... this is more like Burn Goonswarm
Or Goons burn money

Thought it was "burn Jita" not "burn the systems surrounding Jita cause out Burn Jita board doesnt show those kills"

Thousands of ships destroyed in a day will surely have no effect on prices.


They usually dont when theyre killed in 0.0, they have a extremely small one during hulkageddon. But we'll let the market speak for itself.

Wasn't there a freighter killed in Perimeter worth 500 billion dollars?


Whoa what is that in isk?

and did Goons bulk up those numbers with that PLEX courier plan they had?

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


Since when do EVE-U and Goons back each other up?

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!



lol k lets see goons keep this up 6 months

Only counting Jita:

February 24, 2011 - April 22, 2012: 26 freighters killed

April 27, 2012 - April 29, 2012:
26 freighters killed

Goonswarm destroys in two days what everyone else kills in fourteen months.

Yeah sounds like a fail to me

EDIT: And I do not think they are done yet. Also this is based off of eve-kill boards

EDIT: Screwed up the numbers a little. Damn these statistics are getting me excited. Better make a spreadsheet so I can relieve myself.

Dunno, the average in Jita seems to be 2-4k a day this wasnt much more than that

Goonswarm destroys in two days what everyone else kills in fifteen months.

Yeah sounds like a fail to me


If any other corp were to camp Jita theyd likely get the same numbers your point?

Also the thing I think the most funny? They got more kills in two days than hulkageddon usually gets in a week (ofc it looks like most of that was their own ships but still)

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.


Well what you need to do is wardec every corp that comes into and out of jita and/ or camp 4-4 and kill anything that exits.

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.


Know what the funniest thing about this is? I bet this was all preplanned in advance (the Gions have been screaming at anyone that said this was just tears for Mittens getting banned that this HAS been being planned for months) WITH CCP. CCP gets free press, Goons get to RP that theyre badboys "forcing CCP's hand". its win/win.

"Is it fair that CCP can get away with..." :: checks ownership on the box ::

Yes

Tears? Shocked

Considering this was called "Burn Jita", it seems fair to say that his numbers are reasonably accurate. Have to admit, for the time and effort you spent on it, I find those totals suprisingly low.

It's a little disappointing after all the spam and hype about "destroying every ship!", then "destroying every industrial!", then "destroying rich industrials!", then finally "destroying a handful of industrials?".

The most exciting moment in the whole thing was watching 4 goons fail a gank and the guy gets aligned and out anyway with another 50 goons sitting around doing nothing.

And the goon penis spam - goons sure do seem to like penis art.

All the hype for a "fell asleep in the theater" moment. Disappointing.

burn Jita declared by The Mittani for Friday and Saturday, with Hulkageddon beginning Sunday (as it did).

It's Sunday.

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

What do you have against fun?

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


Well, I guess this makes it the perfect time for me to take my Freighter loaded with Zephyrs, Machariels and Titan BPOs into Jita, the market is sure to snaffle them up at inflated prices!
