CONCORD and the navies will still be on the prowl for those who choose to breach the Yulai Convention.

At the same time, trust me, you'll be able to shoot at eachother.



this is going to be some thing where we have to join premade corps isn't it

if it is you should probably advertise that because otherwise anyone with corp roles won't know to drop them and will be locked out

Will PAX East guys be able to participate in this in a unique way?

Can't wait to dual box my Dust toon and EVE toon on the same machine!

So yes or no will Federation Navy NPC's designed for low standings and FW be turned off?
If not the entire Caldari Militia and those who most want to actually aid the Titan instead of "woman-who-sell-her-body" onto a potential Killmail wont be able to help.

This was one of the things I posted in the thread when the idea of this battle was first started, with current game mechanics the most loyal to the State can't go in and aid them because it's a 1.0 system spawning NPC Battleships which neut you out in short time and have crazy DPS. There are also the issues with Aggression Mechanics now meaning aiding anyone in Empire makes your entire logistics fleet Suspects.
It's somewhat frustrating to be on the side which is pretty much destined to lose this battle because on top being in the minority (The ones who don't want to help kill a Titan) we're faced with game mechanics fully designed to keep us out of the event system.



That's sort of intentionally designed. CCP also ran an event (Heth killing Dusties) to alienate the Dusties from defending the Caldari. There's no possible means for the Caldari to win this as currently set up, it's on tracks. Heck, they already have a test map with the Leviathan crashed on CP. Enjoy.

The titan crashes.

To clear up the most common question:

It's not physically possible to just "turn off" factional warfare NPCs, or the status of a system as a Factional Warfare system. Whether or not players decide they want to depart from the militia for a few days or not is entirely their own choice.

If you actually bother following the news, you'll see that all 4 empires are in the process, or have been through a purging of mercenary enclaves.

lol soundz like my Caldari Faction status may be going down the crapper after I find myself bringing down the Luminaire Titan and its associated sec status hit Lol
Is that more then a 3% faction status hit for bringing down an NPC Titan?

So call me Eve-ignorant...

... but I thought that the Gallente drove the caldari off Caldari Prime after the Original Gallante-Caldari War.

should we assume then that 5 years is how long it takes for CCP to get off its hands and remember plot points? does this mean we will be seeing some advances in worm hole lore next year?

So basically - a large percentage of, if not most of, the active pvpers for Caldari and Gallente have a security status that does not allow them to participate in this event in Luminaire.

Additionally, it's possibly being decided by a Console FPS. (That is still in beta I might add)

Great :(

hooray, eve players being sidelined in their own game so some console tards can blow up a titan, removing one of the most interesting landscape features in the game. squeee

Maxim 6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

Hey, at least you aren't also barred from the system by FW status. Most Caldari FW'ers are also in FW corps, and there's no way they can leave in time by Friday afternoon (resign roles: 24 hours) unless they do it right now, not to mention the fact that their Gallente standings are tanked to the point that they'll be insta-popped anyway. Gallente players, OTOH, will have no problem as long as they aren't pirates. They won't even have to worry about much opposition.

And yeah, Dusties are the new first-class citizens. We capsuleers are accessories to the clone soldiers. You know, sorta like the Jedi in Star Wars were to those clone soldiers.

Well - the faction navy isn't as bad as the faction police. Still, it's pretty ****** for everyone involved.

Not to mention, even if they turned off all the npc's for both faction and security status - this completely excludes the US TZ, which is a benefit for the Caldari given the current timezone dominance.

It seems ****** that something this symbolic is decided completely separate from the fw mechanics and playerbase.

Well, at least whatever the outcome it probably won't affect anything in game, just really sucks for the RPers who fly spaceships :(

Sadly there is no one time that works for everyone. Sorry. =/


A weekend is much more inclusive.
