That scanning thing that the Circadian Sleepers have been using? Entosis links. NPC's start capturing Sov, defending with Drifter battleships.

When stupid ideas like the OP's extraordinarily stupid idea get thought up why the hell do they always involve messing with high sec players?

Yeah OP, let's announce a one day war on high sec well in advance so that everyone who plays there can simply do something that doesn't involve playing Eve on that day. And here I was thinking that CCP wanted more people logging in rather than fewer.

I'm late to this party, but don't we actually get one of these events, oh . . . every 6 weeks or so?

I honestly feel like I just read fifty shades of dumb. --CCP Falcon

Naw. Better a sov nullbear massacre. Something like an incursion but made up totally of drifter battleships.

That would be...amusing! Incursions. On steroids!

already been done.

back in late 05/early06 ccp made it so all of eve was .0 for 12hrs or so, was either they made tranq all .0 or made it so everybody logged on to sisi, which ever it was it was epic.

they seeded all station at 100isk for everythin, there were caps everywhere, devs in jove ship tanking hundreds of BS in their jove frigs that were spammin 7torps a cycle, this is when frigs popped to 1 torp, it was a massacar.

you had devs in supers(moms)fighting everybody, then large corp gangs or just randoms all joined up just ganking everythin that moved.

without doubt the best time ive ever had in eve

The problem is the amount of cattle in any MMO make this sort of thing a nightmare. Sadly, the vast majority of players have their heads down, chewing on the grass, oblivious to the world around them. These players react badly when the grass catches fire and horny bulls are rampaging around the field.

I've witnessed this sort of limited-time event in other games (the zombie plague that was unleashed in WoW prior to Wrath of the Lich Kings release), and even in games where nothing is lost in death, just the interruption to the routine sent people utterly bananas. It was incomprehensible to me (as a limited-time event is a wonderful concept to me), but the idea that the cattle couldn't do the same thing they do every, single, day, caused them to lose their mind and rage everywhere and anywhere.

Just look at the amount of fire we get here on a normal day with the miniscule incidents of suicide-ganking, mission invasion, and scamming, now ramp that up 1000%. Personally, these peoples existence is complete twilight-zone to me, but they seem to exist in ludicrous numbers.

I'll tell you a major event that would affect all of the EVE universe.

Change the game from subscription to F2P paid for with micro-transactions. Not a good thing, in my opinion, but I can't think of any event that would cause a bigger change in how the game is played. Or the demographic that would be playing it.

Yup, nothing else anyone could come up with would affect the entire EVE universe quite like that.

Was Sisi, when EVE was exiting Beta I believe. Or one of the patch days when TQ was going to be down 24h.
So they just redirected to a fresh mirror on Sisi.

But that was when the alternative was no server at all or a fake server with no consequences.
Totally different to forcing people to not be able to log into TQ just to run an event like this, or running an event like this on TQ. Remember not everyone plays daily. If it's a persons once a week window you just ruined EVE for them for the entire week.

I just love elitist, condescending, e-peen waving posts like this. Since you seem to hate everyone other than yourself why not just unplug your network cable and play a single player FPS?
