Dear all,

We are a group of players who decided to coordinate our own expression of discontent with CCP and their methods of operation as well as their misrepresentation of fulfillment of promises.

As of 12.10.2015. right after DT, we will be logging off for exactly 90 days. All accounts in question will be put on ice till further notice. Why? Read above. How we can do this? Well EVE ain’t the most important thing for us, neither is it the only game we play together. We just put our thoughts on paper, others saw it and agreed to participate.

We tried to do the mass logoffski a few weeks back, we were successful. So we are doing it again.

For us, EVE was the no. 1 game. Now we are fighting for it the only way we know how and that’s by not giving the 20 bucks for something we don’t want.

In the beginning, EVE was played on Deity level. Shite was hard, ships were hard to come by and feck it, alliances, corporations and players crumbled. It was chess with ships and it was mean and ugly. Now? It’s like playing God Mode with cheats, you log in, make a couple of hundred million, log off, everyone is in a capital ship, everyone is making bucketloads of isk, regional conquests are dead, sov wars turned into stale mates where you run amok with a ceptor, the little guy still does not stand a chance. Actually the little guy does not even care as he got fat and bored in high sec doing whatever hi sec folk do so he does not want to even risk being anywhere else.

At this moment we were able to approach and be approached by exactly 1189 account owners. Would be nice to know its 1189 players, but we all know it might be exactly less people due to multiboxing. For now, we have members of CVA, Goons, NC., -A-, RED, GC and more willing to take part.

Anyone else willing to commit is free to take part in this conquest to reclaim the sanity of the game developers, which was taken from them a long time ago by greed and lust for money. Its time some fat blonde lass with greasy **** and soggy bottom kissed the CCP CEO so he wakes up from this nightmare he let get created and bring back the old school gameplay style which was loved and hated by all of us to an equal extent that we still played it, despite the lacking it presented.

Best regards,

JJ and the Boys

A worthy effort and cause.

But please dump whatever extra PLEX you have onto the market before your action, so that the rest of us can make use of them during your absence.

Otherwise you may return to find the game even less populated than before your strike.

If it was "successful", how come you need to do it again? That would actually be "unsuccessful" Blink
You do know what they say of people that do the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome?

Can I ~take care~ of your stuff? Sad

(Except possibly your stuff, but even then I have a feeling a Velator and a piece of tritanium isn't that valuable).

Excellent salty incoherent rant with the whining about "running amok with an interceptor" being especially well timed.

Now, now. Alt-Shift-Q is a nice little feat of manual dexterity, and coordinating that many keys across many accounts requires some work. Let's not take that away from the poor OP.

So, basically, you want the game to be magically turned back to what it was like 10 years ago, and you decide that the best way to make that happen ( to a company that's trying to make the game better already ) is by depriving it of what it needs to make your demands happen? I mean yea, maybe your little bit of the $ flow doesn't affect much, but that also means they won't really care if you "strike". You can't just strike to make something happen, it's like a tool. You use it in certain situations. You use it against people that don't want to do what you want, whereas in this instance, the money you're denying could be otherwise used to fuel the devs to make what you want happen. If you want to tell the devs that this is what you want, and I mean really tell them, get people together and start a riot or something, I don't know. I'm not a skilled rebel.

This is a signature.

It has a 25m signature.

No it's not a cosmic signature.

Probably.

Rose-coloured glasses.
The old days are long gone and frankly that's a good thing for many reasons, but a few:-

Sov grinding was just as bad back then as it was now. (if you thought old sov was good you never sat hitting pos's for hours daily).
Ships were harder to come by so people were even more risk averse to losing one. (add in the clone costs on pod loss too).
No wormholes so going to null was usually done through the perma camped entry points (null was even safer back then).
No Jumpbridges either, real fun moving everything to and from null with escorted indy / freighter ops - after you'd made the warp to zero bookmarks for every gate on the route of course.

Does EvE have problems ? Yes, but returning to the old days isn't the way forward. (even if some of us liked the cold, harsh universe of that time).
