Jita burning probably didn't pass anyone's attention and I'm sure many of you are interested in knowing more about the technical side of how it all went down behind the scenes and under the hood.

Here to tell you all about it in a whopper of a dev blog is CCP Explorer our Software Director, joined by CCP Atlas, CCP Veritas and CCP Manifest.

Enjoy!

This OP had been planned for months, it would seem, but was still timed to co-inside with the goon ban. So my first point was still valid:

"You banned my idol and I voted for him and it's not fair wahhhh" :3

Personally, I think the event was an amazing idea and pulled off really well. But the pandering from CCP (who should probably stay neutral in this matter) brings it down a notch.
Welcome to EVE online, here's your rubix cube, go F*** yourself ♥

Very cool blog, and it is great to see CCP's pride in the terrible things their players do to each other... :)

You CCP jerks act like goons are heroes... cheering them, and quoting them in a dev blog?? I really have no respect for you anymore, but we all know, you don't give a damn about what a high sec player thinks of you.

If your so hell bent on EVE being a game of pirates and griefers, why do you even have concord and high sec??

Yeah, yeah, now the low/null dorks are all going to flame me, go ahead, I don't care.

Congratulations on a successfull weekend...

..but..."and not being able to make a war target only overview."
CCP broke this over a year ago (petitioned and acknowledged as defect) and seriously, why isn't this getting fixed ? It's just insanely inconvenient for doing anything war-related thing in highsec.

P.S. Same bug prevents a blue-only overview

You misunderstand. They are cheering the improved client and server performance that could allow such a player driven event to occur, and we are cheering that as well. I do take issue with your understanding of concord's role in this game and I don't agree with your stance that the creators of this game should choose sides between people playing authority or anti authority in a sandbox, but we can all agree that a working eve after all this time is a good thing to see.

For several months now, a coalition of thousands of players have been planning the "Burn Jita" event, aimed at disrupting the biggest trade hub in game in order to wreak some terrific, universe-wide changes by shaking the very pillars of EVE's economy at its metaphorical heart.


If it was because of Mittani being banned it would say "For a month now..."

EVE is already a game of pirates and greifers. It is also a game of e-honour, manufacturing and mining. Most of all, it is a game about the stories that *players* make, and this was a big one.

While I did not participate, I think its awesome that CCP provided the sandbox for such a player driven event to happen!

It does not matter that it was the goons who organized the event, for all the difference it makes it could have been some totally awesome carebear alliance that set it up for fun and profit. The fact that it was able to happen is the cool point.

(and with all the advanced warning, its not like it was hard to figure out to stay away from Jita to avoid being ganked, there are other trade hubs ya know...)

you mad? I hate goons with a fiery passion, but on this case I wont negate the fact they did something rather awesome and deserve to be recognized about it, if you want some high sec people to be recognized the same maybe you should try to organize your own 30000+ men alliance and do something awesome, that is, if you can...

btw it was nice to see you goons out there at jita shooting stuff, tho I m still confused why the ton of drakes O.o

I'd rather people have the ability to defend JIta (if they so wish)

This time round some people did war dec Goonswarm Federation and attempt to make a stand. The fact they actually failed is irrelevent, they at least had the option. Next time that option won't exist unless they wish to pay the 4.2bn war dec fee a week for the privilege.

But Large Null sec alliances need protecting from terrible awful soul destroying grief war decs from 1 man corps, so I guess nothing can be done about it.
