lol

CCP please violate your own rules by lagging out what will be a heavily contested system with junk so carebear tourists will have something to oggle when the dust settles in a few months

Any true carebear will die on their first jump to 00.

Edit: On-topic, rats do sometimes spawn by the Wreck of Steve. That kind of makes it inconvenient to pose by Steve for souvenir screenshots.

Mmmmm...as I understand it the Persians blobbed the Greeks unsuccessfully until the meta game got them. Seems fitting.

Would be great if the wrecks could show the alliance logo of whom the titan belonged to when it died.

Hat's off to CFC for dropping a Super/Titan Fleet. was a awesome Fight, took a little long, Hopefully in Future when CCP fixes Tidi fights, we can shave some hours off big fights like those.

How about memorialising the first time a fight this scale occurs without soul crushing lag and TiDi...

... if that ever happens.

No TiDi, you're back to no fights larger than 500. And 500 would produce the lag you so loathe.

If you want a BigFite™, you have to voluntarily refrain from crushing the node. It's called self-discipline, and Mad Props to N3PL and CFC for learning the lesson, and keeping numbers down to a practical limits.

I saw north of 2450 in B-R5, and the reinforcements were still arriving. On an Un-reinforced node. That's impressive.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

We have our memorial!

""Titanomachy.”

Excellent. We shall have the monument so many of us as desired and requested.
Well-done, CCP, and our thanks.

The fighting was awesome on both sides from what I saw and heard from others. Was quite enjoyable.

As for a memorial. i have to say NO! CCP has only done 1 memorial and that was for the first titan Kill. I see no reason why there should be one for B-R. If this happens then all of nullsec will be cuttered with memorials for each titan fight. this would only annoy CCP with the silly requests like this.

As for the CSM response it would only inflate their ego even more then is needed. yeah nice idea but no. it would just eventually turn into "Oh hey such an such happened here so awesome we need a memorial" thsi also happenign in empire or low sec space. come on guys stop acting like your shoe size and remove your head from ass and start thinking.

We got more battles coming up

So, this fight is memorialized because it was epic. The next fight eclipses this one. Are we to memorialize that one too? What of the next?

Are the backs of the large alliances so craving for pats that mere stories, recognition by major news sources, dev blogs, videos and killmails/battle reports and hordes of repetitive forum threads spread across 4 different forums will no longer suffice? What about participation medals/trophies for all involved? Will there be a pizza party after the fight season is over?

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

i don't think this would happen.

thousands of people are calling out for it dev's are calling for it it made world press, it will cause an influx of new players. it is the battle CCP has been advertising for the last 10 years.

yes there will be many more and bigger and better as ccp improve the node and reduce the reliance on TiDi. but it is what it is the biggist longest and most expencive battle in a game

This fight is being rememberd because 75 f*cking Titans died in a single day. I don't see that happening again anytime soon.

Pretty much this. EVEs population is remaining steady and often growing, especially with the hype of these battles encouraging people to at least try the game out.

There will be much bigger battles in the future, there always are.

I think i was a little hasty in my decision when i wrote that. Sitting back thinking about it all day and even being there in the midst of the fighting in hunter fleets and eventually inside B-R. how much death and destruction occured. Why not.

If it helps, we did make the suggestion but CCP were all, yeah we already thought of that, try not to be slow losers slowly losing to loser slows next time.

However in order to assist your narrative I have decided to be all egotistic and big headed about it anyway.

Rawr it was all me. I did it.
