Will there be a recording available afterwards? since 22:00 EVE time isnt exactly optimal for Eastern EU TZ especially if the town hall goes on for several hours

There's only ever been one Fozzie, and I definitely don't have the original Fozzie locked in a cage in my basement. Nothing to see here.

Well there is that burger place they seem to go to a lot, or so I hear..............
The worrying thing is that I have never seen a picture of Iceland that includes a cow!

There is one EvE. Many people. Many lifestyles. WE are EvE

Its a hotdog place, and iv seen the amount of folk that go there, and all they sell is hotdogs and soda, nothing else, in what can only be described as a small box.

perhaps that basement has some machines there . . . Shocked

All I really want to know from this is how the new static for the c4's are being determined.

Is it all mamby pamby random bullcrap, or was there actually some thought put behind it by CCP?

I will be attending as The Nommo's representative. We're a small low-class PvP corp, oh and we also live in a C2.

Looking forward to the exchange.

Glory to Bob.

Bob is always present, watching you traverse space accessable only though wormholes. He is the constant reminder that there is always someone watching you, waiting for your moment of weakness to appear and claim his toll for collecting the bounty of his realm.

Really hope that this isn't going to turn into a ridiculous shouting match. Thank you Corbexx for the invitation, and everyone who will be recording it to provide for the ones not in attendance.

I'd suggest priority speakers being assigned (ie, CSM's, CCP Fozzie etc), and clear rules on how the rest of attendees are able to communicate. This may prevent this from turning into an unproductive heated free-for-all.

I would hope that people can act like adults, even just for a little bit.

The " one universally hated change" would create so much disruption, there would be absolutely no chance to discuss anything else, It would be really good If Fozzie opened up the town hall with the statement,

" we have considered the responses and suggestions we have received, and decided that with the other changes and how they have and improved through such excellent feedback, we feel our goals have been met at this point, so we will not be implementing the mass spawn change with this release, but we may revisit it at a later time should we feel it necessary."

Then we can move on to a sensible discussion.

Otherwise we are just going to get completely bogged down, and achieve nothing but anger and bad feelings.Sad

There is one EvE. Many people. Many lifestyles. WE are EvE

There's only ever been one Fozzie, and I definitely don't have the original Fozzie locked in a cage in my basement. Nothing to see here.


Firstly, Evil Fozzie should sacrifice the caged original Fozzie to Bob so as to gain enlightenment that only Bob can grant. I can be contacted for a list of suitable locations.

Secondly, the mass jump mechanic I see as being interesting, but it will not provide any additional substantial content. For the most part WHers are the same as the rest of humankind so we are lazy and that is the real reason why you won't see capitals being used to close WHs. Its because of the added 30 seconds to a minute required to get back to jump range, not the added chance of getting ganked that will stop Orca closings.

Thirdly, I have lived in C4 space for the majority of my EVE life, the last 8 months of it being in a C4 Wolf-Rayet, and I have some concerns on the small mass, long life, virtually uncollapsible random wormholes. While I appreciate and look forward to added chances for small gang, low isk risk, pvp fights(with massive small weapons damage bonus) these will spawn, our group actively recruits young pilots to train in the ways of Bob and providing hole security for them is often times paramount. If these wormholes pop up once a week we can live with that, but if they become an every other day occurrence they represent a problem that we will no doubt solve, but at what cost in activity and isk generation is the question.

Finally, on the additional static to C4s. Living in a C4 - C3static I find I have mixed feelings towards having a new static, which according to singularity will be a C4 for us. While I appreciate the added income this represents it will also force us to throw our safety net out farther (which isn't necessarily a bad thing) which will require more pilots (which may break smaller corps; I feel this is an unintended consequence). Being connected to the C4 super highway is a dramatic change from our backwater that we love so dearly and as long as it isn't a change meant to pander to those large C5/C6 Corps or just a change for the sake of changing we will adapt and no doubt continue to thrive.

I will end by reminding everyone of the fiercely independent nature of wormholers and our willingness to join together to destroy all nonbelievers who enter our domain.

GLORY TO BOB

[u]W-Space:[/u] A place to learn who you are, your friends are, and to praise Bob.

All of our new pilots are trained in the art of hole control, lest ye be judged by Bob for your lack of respect.

Should a wormhole open unto thee thou shalt engage in combat, whether covert or in plain light.

If their numbers are too great you shall respect Bob by not being covered in the blue light of the spheres of protection, but instead lying in wait for your prey to drop their guard.

If you are to log out, Bob will make sure that any loses you avoid will be paid in double, and that any isk you fly in space shall be forfeit.

GLORY TO BOB!

Little bit too late for me. Anyway, don't forgot to ask about the rebalance of the PvE content in wormholes and when this could come to TQ!
