Capsuleers,

For five years a wall of Caldari steel has sat in orbit of the besieged planet of Caldari Prime. The Gallente who still reside there cower in its shadow, held to ransom on the whim of Caldari State Executor, Tibus Heth.

Soon, it will be time for you to show your worth, and display your prowess on the battlefield. You've all come so far in the last ten years, and the time draws closer when your immortal brethren on the ground will begin to assist you in shaping the political landscape of New Eden.

A storm is coming, and when it arrives your actions could either assist in maintaining a fragile stability, or usher in a new era in politics that will resonate across every world in New Eden.

You can read more about the storm that is brewing here.

I guess I should pay more attention to the RP Fluff? I've been playing since '07 and didn't even know that the titan was there, and I've been flying around Gallente Space lots. Heck I used to mission run in that system, and never noticed it. I'll have to make a special trip to see it before it gets blown up.

Should we prepare to join FW to participate to the event?


I would say most decidedly not. Anyone can participate in Live Events! :D In fact, it might be pretty scary for Caldari Milita to attempt to show up. This is why I must sadly encourage any and all Caldari Militia that want to show up if the only thing that is stopping you is being Cal Militia in Fed space, drop the Corp for now. However if it's your standings that are preventing you...well..Today(Friday) is a good day to die! Do it for the State!

Great :(

First off, just a reminder that Dust is a part of the greater EVE Universe now. Also, this is not being entirely decided on the ground. There has been and always will be live events in space. They've been going on constantly lately, much thanks be to the very dedicated team at CCP that is helping to make this happen.

A weekend is much more inclusive.


Not for everyone. Actually for me weekends are my busiest. *Shrugs* There are more things going on behind the scenes that dictate timetables then we can know. I assume most likely this is being done on Friday because of PAX East.

Should be on your overview. I recommend warping to the Titan at range. At least 50km. The escort fleet is a bit trigger happy.

I will be preparing many ships to have in that area for the battle.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

I dunno the mercs fought pretty hard against the caldari state, you guys managed to lose two entire freighters of protesters the dust bunnies managed to rescue by refusing to fight on the 'team they wanted to lose'

I mean a perfect example of the eve capsuleers not effecting the story line by just idly standing by and letting it happen.

It begins.

On a more loquacious note, I highly recommend that anyone that wants to join in the event also joins the Live Events channel in EVE. We've been running the fleets for these events for a while now, and that's not going to change (other than maybe multiple fleets this time).

Yet another "free victory" for the gal/mini militias, well done CCP.

Anybody who's been in caldari / amarr militia for a bit will have bad enough standings to be instantly hounded by faction navy spawns... Roll


It's funny really how CCP Falcon tries to uphold the charade of not favouring any factions when CCP pumps out utterly biased scenarios like this!

I wonder whats next, maybe an "awesome and cinematic" live event where THE ELDER FLEET (isn't that a cinematic and cool name!?) cyno's into Amarr and doomsdays Athra? Of course the amarr RP'ers have a chance to down the titan once their homeworld is burnt to ashes, yeah...


CCP Falcon wrote:

To clear up the most common question:

It's not physically possible to just "turn off" factional warfare NPCs, or the status of a system as a Factional Warfare system. Whether or not players decide they want to depart from the militia for a few days or not is entirely their own choice.




Leaving the militia does not reset your faction standings, so yeah, this is a heavily biased event and not worth anybodys time on the amarr/caldari side...

Damnit, I'm not even in the Militia and my standings with Gallente are still lower than with Guristas. Suppose I won't be able to join the fun.

So basically - a large percentage of, if not most of, the active pvpers for Caldari and Gallente have a security status that does not allow them to participate in this event in Luminaire.

Additionally, it's possibly being decided by a Console FPS. (That is still in beta I might add)

Great :(

Why is it every time a bunch of Caldari get screwed you're here helping them Chatgris!? This is why 22ND loves you so much <3
Thanks again for being a Gallente who cares more for the game and community than a win.

Well it will be interesting to see what happens, most of the Caldari can't make it to help, I hate to be one to shout about bias fights an the like but we have been telling you this would be the backlash since the topic started in the Live Events channel. You can't run a big event which decides such a big thing for a faction in a system their most loyal can't even enter.

I will be there and I will be ready to help, but there is little I can do past warping around firing one shot and warping off again, and that's if the TiDi and Lag don't get me killed.

Sadly there is no one time that works for everyone. Sorry. =/


This is one of the reasons why we are streaming the event - so that those that are unable to participate can still see what's going on. It's regrettable that the nature of the event and logistics of running the event don't allow for 24 hour coverage, but them's the breaks.

Glad to see CCP wising up on new Empire Wars that will reduce hi sec to rookie islands and get rid of those ridiculously congested trade hubs.

No longer will the enlightened be called "pirates" rather than "noble privateer" and "patriot" when those with clear sight see that killing miners and commerce is the true path to strategic victory as well as legitimate profits of war.

Hopefully in the near future CONCORD will be virtually the NEW Incursion rats but in limited conquerable numbers without all the ultimate absolute sovereignty super powers.

From what I gather the first few system security drops will begin in the systems around Caldari Prime in just few weeks if not days near Luminaire. How far is Jita ? 4-5 jumps Time to stock up some ships around there and prepare to make market goods a bit more rare.



ROFLMAO -

"If the horse (miners) won't drink (null) and you can't even lead him to water (lo sec) -- fricking bust the damn and try to drown him (empire wide faction wars) -- that will cause most to swallow a few times!"

CODE alliance is going obsolete before it ever gets much off the ground. No need for uber alliance of null alts. Mains will sooner be able to play where ever or alts stay in same overall alliance.

Not at all, there is no FW requirement to the event.
