Well, we have a flu going round at work here too so they prob weren't kidding on that one. It's a scoped query on the DB then write a script to get the final blow person's alliance (or corp if not in alliance) and just + the value into a hash. If they had to write the script to get the total value of a kill (you'd hope not) it's probably a couple of hours, if they already had that maybe an hour. Probably 20 lines of python?

This is almost as funny as a urinal flag tbh :)

We took some time to double check whether it was PL or NC. that won (Confirming that the value in our database for the Nyx kill matched the ingame kill report). Eterne was sick for a few days so that slowed things down as well.

It is pretty simple, the implants are worth 0 isk since they were generated by a console command, not actually bought nor available to be bought on the actual in game market.

It's a shame, however, that the contest has to be mired in controversy. But leave it to CCP to act like a third-world dictator and change the rules once the counting begins.

Do you really need to post on an alt after all the shitposting in this thread?

Take some time to double check the rules you wrote next time.
Or at least admit you changed the rules afterwards.

I think nobody missed that, and (internally) many of us are calling fair play on it. The ~~~ is in the going from 'all kills count no matter what' to 'we decided to count only if it's ingame generated'. That troll move caught everyone by surprise, so well played sirs ccp.

ps: the python script you used is literally 20 lines right? Or did you do the unfashionable and did it all in the DB query? I bet you did :ewwww:

Definitely hats off to PL. As someone who was on grid watching them massacre everything on the field during the Rifters event, its no suprise they came out so far ahead.

I find it hilarious how many lowsec groups here are complaining about the force projection of nullsec blocs, when all they do themselves in lowsec is bridge onto everything and anything they can. Pot calling the kettle black a bit, IMO.

Just congratulate them for a very solid victory and stop being poor sports. If anything, you should feel proud of yourselves that you did so much ISK damage despite being a fraction of the size of PL. Have a bit more pride, lowsec. Yeesh.

By the way, if you'd like to see what it looks like to have Kings battle in the arena, Syndicate Competitive League (www.syndicatecl.com/) is this weekend.

i dont see anyone complaining about "the force projection of nullsec blocs"

I think you'll find what's being complained about is the rules change after the competition from "Everything counts" to "Everything counts except these things which we decided don't"

You know what, just for Grarr, I'll hang a snuffbox flag on my house in London, in honour of 'having killed most CCP pods' in this 'ere event. Given it's in London, it'll probably be seen by a ton more people than the Reykjavik flag!

(e: actually it won't be since it's in green belt surrey in a cul-de-sac road with 8 houses and a load of forest kek)

Snuff Box is already at the "we didn't want that flag, anyway" stage.

It's good to see the healing process at work.

no mate we deffo would like that flag, just calling CCP out for the trolling. Watched some of that syndicate stuff, it was terrible, you're not organising that are you?

Not conspiracy, just spinelessness.
It's classic CCP though, don't own up to anything and it's like it never happened. Not like it matters, it's just a fairly inconsequential fun event, but it's agitating nonetheless. Watch this:

CCP Eterne / Fozzie:
Did you change the rules after the fact, yes/no?

Won't get an answer because :can'tadmitmistakes:
