Hello, we have nice monument after battle of B-R.
Still few days earlier we had also one of the biggest fights in eve history.

The ingame monument should be a bunch of naglafar wrecks shaped into a turkey. Besides said group of naglafar wrecks should be an assortment of archons and titans shaped as a gun.

Post with your NPC alt main and not your main main alt!

How many titans died that day in this random system of no importance?

Sorry, but i hope that CCP will not define importance of some event by "how many titans died".
Does the TITANS relay define EVE now?

No one cares that a bunch of regular capitals died in your nobody system. Asakai didn't get a monument either & more stuff died there than in your nobody system that no one cares about.

hahaha calling the most awsome system in eve a nobody system. Don't know if trolling or just typical goon...

Anyways I agree that I don't see a reason why this battle should get a monument over lots of other similar or bigger battles.

Because every day you drop 250 capitals that die , and slaughter runs till the DT.
This is somewhat important as it proved that EVE is not game "where you can interact with thousands other players".
Infrastructure is not capable of keeping up.

Thanks to this knowledge B-R did happen.
Sub caps where pulled out from this node , and used to block reinforcements in different system so the node will not die.

You can simply check the scale of this slaughter.

I'd rather have a monument for 6VDT-H, which is still the biggest battle to take place in EVE (not most expensive/destructive battle like B-R5RB) with the cap of 4070 players in system

Jita needs a monument too. I can think of three reasons why:

Burn Jita
Burn Jita II
Burn Jita 3

Perhaps the Perimeter/Jita gate can be replaced with a specialized "monument" version instead.

Perhaps if they do a better job next time, yeah.

There was no excuse to not be getting ganks every ~20 or so minutes consistently. Yet there were stretches of 2 hours that could go by without a freighter kill.

Literally watched several jump freighters safely warp in and out of system.

Unacceptable considering the size of the CFC.

HED was a joke, and was only notable because of a week worth of whine from CFC members who like idiots tried to jump a dread fleet onto an already loaded grid. Then had the nerve to whine about the server staying up.

6VDT should be the only other battle in recent times to warrant a monument, simply based on the fact that it had the single largest peak players in the history of the game.

The problem with monuments is that the more there are the less value they have. If CCP made a monument for every large battle (be it scale, duration, players or whatever) after a few years there would be so many that they would be meaningless.

You want something rare, once in a few years rare, worthy of a inty pilgrimage.
