What does your flag even look like?
When I look at your alliance it's just the standard Alliance logo.

Can you link a picture of it?

What does that have to do with Urine?
I thought you guys were talking about how funny it would be to have a Urine flag up and that's the reason CCP rigged this?

If d0nnie had anything to do with it though, it would have been illegal to display in public.

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?


"guys we are so relevant~ CCP was just trolling us!"


You're in Sniggerdly, since when do you slave scrubs get to poast at all? No blanket eve-o poasting bans from Shamis lately?

More holes in their ******* rules:

Quote:
The ISK value will be equivalent to that on the kill report.


http://i.imgur.com/Dzc6mvJ.png

That is a kill report, right?

You never said anything about the legitimacy of the items.

Quote:
All kills which adhere to these guidelines will count, regardless of the circumstances surrounding them.


At no point did you state you would exempt anything for any reason.

from http://poeticstanziel.blogspot.ca/2013/05/king-of-lowsec-and-lost-in-eve.html

CCP seems really good about laying down rules and then "clarifying" them after the fact. It should come as no surprise that there's a bit of controversy surrounding CCP's King of Lowsec contest.

Snuff Box, of Urine Alliance, were quite sure they had won. I'd gather they were tracking killboards, and did not see anybody come close to their total ISK value of kills. Not even their closest rival Pandemic Legion.

Yet, when all was said and done, CCP announced Pandemic Legion as the winners. Maybe Snuff Box miscalculated their kills. It's hard to say what kills were calculated as part of the contest, because CCP has not released the killmails used. A comparison between the two alliances would be worth seeing.

What we do know is that Snuff Box killed a lot of CCP employees during the contest. And we know that CCP decided not to include CCP kills as part of their calculation. The problem is that the rules did mot exclude CCP employee kills.

Specifically, the rules state:

  • Whoever receives the final blow will be credited with the value of kill.
  • The ISK value will be equivalent to that on the kill report.
  • Only kills made in low security space (0.1 to 0.4 systems) will count.
  • Only kills made after the server comes up on May 5th and before it goes down on May 6th will count.
  • All kills which adhere to these guidelines will count, regardless of the circumstances surrounding them.

I've bolded the all-important rule. All kills that adhere to the guidelines. And the guidelines don't discount any particular type of kill, including kills of CCP employees of celebratory roams.

Maybe Urine Alliance did win. Maybe CCP didn't want the hassle of dealing with an alliance without a logo, even though the rules state: "In the event the winning alliance does NOT have an in-game logo, we will figure something out." Maybe CCP didn't want to figure something out. Maybe CCP didn't want Urine Alliance flying high and proud over CCP headquarters.

We'll never really know. But, it would be damned nice if CCP could create a set of rules and adhere to them, not changing and adding rules after the fact. It would be fantastic if players knew what was legal and not-legal before a contest began, and not given that information afterwards.

End of the day this competition was about going out and killing as much as you can. PL did that the best without trying to score points on the best meta game way to get an isk score

PL just won fair and square ... get over it

I could understand the frustration if you were second or even a close runner up in a tight race, but you came in 5th. You came in behind a training corp. You had a third of the isk killed as pl and now you're mad because you thought you could gimmick your way to the top.

We got fifth when we weren't even participating, in CCP's eyes.
