Well done everyone and especially CCP. This came off better than I'd dared hope. I've had to explain to my girlfriend why I'm grinning inanely all evening!

Maxim 6. If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.

I logged off a while after the old record was broken (RL and such) so couldn't be in for the H-Hour... my guess was almost 1,000 short of the actual record.

Marlona Sky managed 2349 people on his Nyx killmail, which presumably is also an all time record.

Congrats Hilmar. I've been with you more than a decade now, let's hope I'm doing this thread again in another!

Woot. Where's dust 514's? This is uprising's last day and we're all saying farewell to this build.

Dust 514's CPM 1 Iron Wolf Saber Eve mail me about Dust 514 issues.

If the Nyx thing was part of the getting people to log in for the PCU record, he was a bit off on his timing as the number of players logged in had dropped by 5000 from its peak of 65000+ ninety minutes earlier.

We hit peak just before it started. You bet your ass it contributed, with tonnes of people moving into place

Multiple people with different accounts now experiencing failure to load grid. Relogging seems to be the only solution.

Setting a new PCU record certainly revealed something....

I wasn't even close.

I figured with the recent fanfest plus the 10 year celebration, the alts would come out in force.

My guess was 72,500

Ya, I'm a dreamer.

Are Dust players counted in this number? They appear as docked and active on the map.

If I didn't know any better I'm sure they mean "necro" as in necromancy of raising the dead thread seeing the c and g key are right next to other. Hrm... Sort of.

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?
