As far as I understand this defect it has been fixed with the new wardecs. We'll likely put in some additional (more sane) checks though.

And we thank CCP for creating an environment where almost anything is possible, giving enough time and effort. When things started getting wonky on Friday you all could have simply said "screw it, it's the weekend!" and went home. Instead there were fixes to Crimewatch, reinforcing of nodes, and a perfect execution of TiDi.

It is great to know that after nine years this game still receives so much support from the the developers.
Thanks for the feedback! Big smile

Yes. It was an issue the entire weekend. Very similar to the old 0.0 issues where you never load grid and are dead before you do.

I realise this is your stance (as it should be) but that is not how your blog reads. "Led by Goonswarm...jaw-dropping...stood in awe..." etc. etc."

Just sayin' Smile
Very clear; we are not taking sides.


Don't give in Explorer, these "people", this rabble, just want CCP to condemn Goons for everything. They would absolutely LOVE to see the entirety of the CFC banned from the game.

Give these commoners no quarter, and neither will we.

The removal of goonswarm would affect me and my little wormhole friends... how exactly?
You were right about your badposting but wrong in assuming that it made you funny.


I'm not questioning whether or not you take sides. Just informing you that the blog sounds skewed.

Just a few questions if you don't mind.

So we obviously had the population cap on the system as mentioned in the blog this as I doubt a whole lot of market trade was happening that day was it still needed due to crimewatch not really scaling well in highsec ?

Given the server needed a population cap if high sec players had filled the system with warm bodies then Burn Jita wouldn't have happened at all?

If that's the case will the reworking of Crimewatch that is occuring improve it's performance enough to rid highsec of population caps?

With this sort of thing, I'd almost expect some sort of larger-scaled response by the Caldari Navy. I would find it an fascinating in-game event if the Caldari declared war on the GSF in retaliation. Almost immersion-breaking to see no response from them. Great kick-off to Inferno, maybe? :D

But I'm not CCP Soundwave, so what do I know?

Unilateral declaration of war on a player faction by an NPC faction has been a source of...lets say "drama"...in the past.

It'd be fun, I'm just sayin'. Blink

I am asking around. Hard when people don't remember exactly which KM was blackscreen and which weren't. Some would just die to faction while trying to warp off etc. Hopefully someone has a good memory.

Oh? Only in the game for a year or so, and my history of past events is a bit... spotty. Something like this has happened before?

Edit: It's not like they'd even need out of game info. CCP Diagoras' statistics there very clearly show GSF and Test at the heart of this unprovoked terrorist attack at the heart of Caldari space. <.<

But I'm not CCP Soundwave, so what do I know?

Incredible amount of carnage.

As for requests, how about:

• Freighters lost, by type
• Alliance who lost the most industrial ships
• People that lost the most ships
• People that lost the most capsules

Thanks!

The majority of the ambient load in Jita on a normal day is due to player movements - jumping in/out, docking/undocking and switching ships (voluntarily or otherwise). These are fairly expensive actions, and since they were still happening in large number during the event, I'm fairly safe assuming that they were a bulk of the ambient load in this event as well. We have a project in the pipe for solving this load.

The refactoring of Crimewatch should help the spikes come down a fair bit as well, so I suspect that a similar event done in, say, a year from now should have a very different performance characteristic.
