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.

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..."

Yeah this was planned for far longer, sorry to rain on your parade.

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


Drakeswarm was all about shooting wardecs and keeping things clear for the mass murder to continue. It worked really, really well, despite a couple of very short interruptions.

The point isn't to praise the Goons, you see, it's to praise the fact that players can do things like the Goons choose to do... At least that's my thought.

We are not taking any sides here; this was a player-driven event in accordance with game mechanics and we try to support all such events to the best of our abilities. These are your stories.

This is exactly what separates Eve from other MMOs. Thanks to the Devs for making this possible. Cool

edit : also i'd like to use this opportunity to point out one thing, we need the ability to show a wartarget-only overview, please :(

Well done CCP. Both on the technical side of course, but more on the game side. You created rules (or a lack thereof) that allows this to happen. And it did.

I have almost no time right now for Eve due to RL but I did log on with an alt that was in Jita itself, just so I could float outside of 4-4 and watch. Awesome.

This is what makes an awesome game!

I may not like you or your point of view but you have a right to voice it.

very well written blog entry

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

I'm playing since 2006 when it was crazy to jump into Jita with more than 300 pilots and when we had at least 3 unexpected downtimes each week. At that time the database was mysql. OMG that must had been terrible . I was part of huge fleets in 0.0 and saw the blackscreen many times and couldn't stop a gun. Nevertheless this game was always best in his class.

But in the last 12months eve became awesome as it should be. Thx for all the nights devs you didn't wanted anyway.

Concord exists to punish, not protect, there's a very important distinction there.

Also, good work keeping the server from catching fire along with the solar system CCP :) IRC even went down to have a little (unplanned) intervention, it was fun seeing ourselves on player run live streams.

I realise this is your stance (as it should be) but that is not how your blog reads. "Led by Goonswarm...jaw-dropping...stood in awe..." etc. etc."

Just sayin' Smile

Praise is deserved only by those who took the idea of using SA to create an alliance and those dedicated to spreading propaganda.
The rest of it is just a suicide gank op with lots of people following someone elses lead Blink
