He wasn't in his CSM role, he was in his role as leader of goonswarm, since that was the ALLIANCE LEADER PANEL, not the CSM panel.

Thats kind of the whole point of the OP.

Different note, Heath Ledger was a method actor. If you are familiar with method acting you would realize that once he took the role, he submerged himself in the character, and STAYED there til after he was done filming the movie. This means he did not get a break from being submerged in a role that was presumably against his character(I didn't know the guy, can't actually say he wasn't an insane mass murdering clown who just never got caught) so it doesn't actually hold up next to role playing, where you leave the role on a very regular basis and have the relief of being yourself for as long as you need to.

Wait a minute?





Does this mean that Amanda Holland is replacing Lady Harlot as The Mitanni's new ego fapping alt? I don't think I got the memo TBH.

If someone is "RPing" when they kill another person, they still go to jail (or death penalty, depending on location... or get off due to pathetic legal loopholes).

Doesn't matter if the Mittani was RPing or not, he got what CCP determined to be a suitable punishment.

First, I'd like to note that Heath Ledger killed himself shortly after playing that role, following a period of depression where he stayed in doors and refused to communicate with friends, family, or peers to my knowledge.

That doesn't speak well of the effects of role-acting a clinically insane, twisted freak of nature on the mind of the actor. Less so when that actor delves to deeply into the psyche of the character in an attempt to better understand his motivations and intentions to improve their ability to portray the persona and archetype of that character.

Did you know that Friedrich Nietzsche slowly developed insanity during his career as a writer, delving into the less savory aspects of humankind, their nature, and the nature of Evil. Trying to understand such things isn't always a good idea; particularly if someone is already slightly imbalanced of mind as he was. Of course, it might have just been something in the Ink.



And so its a logical correlation to say that the cause of these two isolated cases of insanity was that they explored the baser nature of the human psyche? Are you familiar with the term "a fallicy of correlation and causation"?

You assumed that because the one thing, insanity, happened after the other, that it was the cause but we all now that in 99 out of 100 other similar cases, both of insanity and of roleplaying the bad guy, there was no link whatsoever. This is the same sort of failed logic that causes religious fools to believe in miracles.


Did you consider that maybe it was the other way around? Logically that is completly valid.

As far as I know, Sean Bean doesnt have any mental problems and hes played the bad guy in over 20 films.

David Lynch is a perfectly sane person dispite the nature of his films.

Incidently, Michael Jackson went insane after having his skin tone changed to white, so maybe being white is the cause of insanity.

Do you see what Im getting at? Dont you feel like a ****** now? Hang on to that feeling, you are going to need it if you continue to use logic like that.

He was punished for a EULA breach, for saying the guys ingame name and encouraging people to harrass him. The punishment was a 30 day ban which is quite a long one for his transgression. I doubt that it would be the same had there not been such a polical shitstorm about it.

This had little to do with the things everyone was so ******* outraged about actually. Most of those lot was angry at the guy for mocking a suicical person. Massively ran the story as "cyberbullying" before actually looking into it and afterwards had to backpeddle and ended up apologizing for running an obviously unfounded sensationalist story.

So here we are.

I invite you to consider: Who was wronged more?

The person in question had his ingame persona publizised and was publicly rediculed for his suicide story, if there was any relation to real life then the person himself decided to bring that inside the confines of the game, which means the fault is his own.

The Mitanni had his real life name publizised in a very negative context for things he did within the confines of the game. Now, every time someone googles his name, up pops the "cyberbullying" troll.

A lot of people on these forums should benefit from a reality check.

Food for thought.

So, FanFest was.....a Virtual Simulation this year ?

I thought the Alliance Panel footage was a bit herky jerky and stiff.

The drunken comment and afterwards is amazing when you look at it in the light of he was RPing.


A total load of bullshit.

If he was roleplaying he would have encouraged the character to biomass, not the player to kill himself.

He overtly admits that. For you to deny it is ******* absurd.

internet spaceships

are serious business sir.

Perception is obviously in the eye of the beholder.

Never get into an argument with a Carebear, especially when your alt's Alliance Leader is on the line.

Not just my perception, CCP decided that the Alliance panel was an official CCP platform and thus "within the confines of the game", and so The mittani was punished for a EULA breach. So what is troubling you?

Also, what arguement?

THIS ^^

....is your argument. That it is his fault.

When the mittani RAN WITH IT and encouraged self-extermination. That was the mittani's decision and action.

THAT is taking Roleplaying as "Internet Space Villain" into Real Life.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I was not examining the question of right and wrong, I was examining the consequenses for both persons, I thought that was plain, I am sorry that you got it wrong.

Too late to back-pedal.

You declared that the action was the fault of the other player, not the mittani.
