Hello friends!

My name is JEFFRAIDER and I am the official Pandemic Legion Head Diplomat. After a meeting with our leadership team I have been directed to make two public statements in regards to this. For reference, present at the leadership meeting were myself, Elendar (Flag FC), Elise Randolph (Head FC), Shadoo (Backup FC), Kearl (Alliance Executor), Phalanx III (Head of Logistics), Grath Telkin (Supercapital FC), Alidean (Sniggerdly Vice-CEO) and BlueMajere (North Eastern SWAT Vice-CEO).

First Public Statement to CCP:

Dear CCP,

We would first like to thank you for this fun event and wonderful prize! While we are gratified to have won, we certainly understand the controversy in your decision. I am sure had your fleet been in the system with the event rather than specifically attacking URINE Alliance, you would have felt more comfortable in allowing the CCP kills to count. Since you didn't really give other entities the same chance to engage your fleet, we understand your decision. Once again, thank you!

Second Public Statement to URINE Alliance:

Dear URINE Alliance,

We won.

After hours of combat versus EVE players we managed to do three times the damage to all of low-sec as your alliance. We won, and those of you who aren't us lost. Big time.

For those of you keeping score, it's Pandemic Legion: 1, URINE Alliance: 0.

Over 1000 enemies melted under the purifying lasers of Elendar's FLAG-WINNING Fleet, so once again, in case you were wondering who won and who lost this year, we are the clear-cut victors. You are the losers. In fact, I would go so far to say that we absolutely f*cking wolloped you.

Now I'll admit, winning was very fun. It was fun for two reasons. 1) We got exactly what we wanted - every single little bit. And 2) winning means that we got to watch other people lose, people we admittedly have no respect for and really enjoy watching get upset.

To the victors go the spoils, I suppose.

Not only that, the process of winning was fun. It was also pretty easy. Surprisingly so! All we had to do was murder One Thousand (1000) enemy ships over a 3 hour firefight outnumbered 1700:100. Us owning has been working for years, so we did it again, and it paid off, and we won.

God, it feels good to win. It just feels really, really good.

Take a look at this face. This is the face of a winner. If that makes you angry, look in the mirror because that's the face of a loser. A huge, unequivocal loser.

I bet you're not ready to give up yet. I bet you think you can be King of Low-Sec next year. You can't. I certainly welcome you to try - because I enjoy winning- but trust me, nothing you do is going to change anything. What’s going to happen is I’m going to keep on winning, and you’re going to keep on losing. That’s just how it’s going to be from here on out. Because that’s how it’s always been.

I won. You lost. Bye.

But, but u didnt come at the top. The win was just a present from few CCP devs that are favorizing you. And it was not 100v1700. It was more like 100 vs 1rifter x1700 trying to killy a nyx.

This is what it means fighting against the odds http://shadowcartel.com/kb/?a=kill_related&kll_id=56240


how come ur not king of low-sec?!

Oh wait because you never could be.

Because you're you.

And we're us.

Thanks!

First of all, congratulations to Pandemic Legion for winning. Interesting to see how this whole Butterfly Effect works, my event playing a role in PL winning this. I honestly didn't know this competition was going on till it was pointed out to me.

Funny thing about how winners react to things. Some handle it with modestly and are grateful and respectful to their peers. However this is EVE of course, so expecting such things is rather 'wishful thinking', I get it.

But, I will have to share a tiny little dirty secret that many players in this game and most likely most of you reading this don't know. I didn't pay much attention to it until I saw this overly self patting on the back post here:

Elendar wrote:
Kill a thousand pubbies
Cause glorious rage by repping a nyx
Get flag over CCP

All in a days work :smug:


First of all, there was no glorious rage by repping the Nyx. More like some sighs of disappointment. PL didn't surprise anyone. Every single person who participated in the event, both in system and those trying to get there and encountered road blocks knew some null blocks would at some point show up to do something in an attempt to be a party crasher. To troll if you will. The equivalent of going to a race and knowing at some point, they will cross the finish line. The only real question was, when?

Matter in fact, the only 'glorious rage' during that event was null members, specifically PL, in my events channel and some in local when I started talking about self destructing my Nyx. Oh and the wonderful mails I received from a few of their members. I will not repeat word for word here, but the common theme was, I was a coward for initiating self-destruct. Meanwhile in the channel there was several colorful words expressed at me in all caps from some PL members. Again, the theme being I was a coward and very 'anti-fun' to put it mildly.

Funny thing about the word coward. I guess the definition changed on me when I was not looking? Which brings me to the dirty little secret that most people don't know about. You see the big and mighty null alliances that did show up, had an agreement not to shoot each other till all the frigates had been killed and the field cleared. Temporary blues.

I didn't know about this till I started mailing and convo'ing some of the null members when I noticed the CCP feed and saw not just the PL fleet on the field, but also Razor had a fleet there as well a couple other null alliance fleets. Why on earth would null alliances who normally fight each other become blue even just for a little while?

They were scared.

That is the only logical reason. Remember the system hit the population cap and there was indeed a ton of players not affiliated with null alliances. Those same null alliances have been talking about how the players who participated were unorganized. Bullshit. That is a flat out lie. They formed fleets and brought in bonuses setting them up in correct fleet positions. Perhaps they lacked the logistical backbone or even the experience compared to null alliances, but there were no random rabble of players with wide eyed with no idea what to do. My event channel was full of players discussing tactics , assembling multiple fleets and sharing intel on 'party crashers' for others in route to avoid.

So once it was apparent PL intended on keeping the Nyx alive to farm none null alliances, gates were not letting anyone else in, I pulled the plug. Granted it took twenty minutes for the self-destruct timer to finally tick all the way down, but there you have it. The “King of Low Sec” brought to his knees bluing their enemies for survivability against all those dangerous 'pubbies'.

I'm no saint, I know that. But to lie and pretend I stood alone against everyone else and brag on the forums all the while being smug about it? Jesus guys, have some dignity. I'm glad you showed up and participated in the event, I really am, but tone it down a bit yeah? And yes, I know that once the Nyx was gone and any frigates alive bailed, you had a small pillow fight with the other null alliances for about 60 seconds - and then you all proceeded to warp off/dock up and not fight.

No one is impressed. Straight

Yeah it would have been crazy to see all kinds of different fighting going on. But instead, you guys choose to be boring. In all honesty I think you guys just cheated yourselves out of even more fun.

The chances of such a thing happening are, as I'm sure you must know, vanishingly small.

Imagine trying to get everyone in Jita to do something as simple as warping to a gate at the same time, using only local. You're not on comms or in fleet with any of them, and local moves so fast you have to hope they both read and react to it in a timely fashion. Not to mention that you'd also be forewarning your enemies about what you're trying to do.

It wasn't an impossible task, but realistically there was 90% TiDi and PL brought 15+ Oneiroses - 90%+ of the ships on the field were T1 frigates. I don't think PL were in any danger of losing anything to anyone who didn't turn up to fight them instead of whoring on the Nyx, and gates being locked and temporary blues effectively ensured this couldn't happen.

Got to give it to PL for planning it the way they did, and it was dumb of CCP to put the kill event on the same day as the 1000s of rifters event. Once you're set up and traffic control kicks in, you have a one way meat grinder to farm up kills. As we said, we tried to get into that system but it was already in full traffic control mode. Who gets the credit in PL to come up with the idea once CCP put it on the same day? Doesn't seem ad-hoc at all in hindsight.

Edit: and for people who still don't get it, they were repping the Nyx not to pee in your soup/event, but to rack up kills for the CCP event, there's nothing like 'NYX TO KILL IN X' to get the scrubs flooding to the gates with their ships and keep the system in TD. Very good PEEVEEPEE there. @Eterne, wtf gave you the inclination to put it on the same day anyway

I think the way PL won "King of Lowsec" is questionable. At the very least the competition was flawed from the start. The title "King of Lowsec" implies that the winner is a ruling entity or at least in some way majestic in these particular regions of space. And this year's winner most assuredly is none of those.

To put the competition on the same day as the Nyx vs frigates event further devalues the title. And just when I thought the title couldn't be defiled any more, CCP goes ahead and creates massive controversy by changing the competition rules after the fact - or at the very least they neglected to include vital information in the rules before competition started.

And to top it off, the way Pandemic Legion conduct themselves in this thread is just atrocious. The pubescent shitpost from PL's "diplomat" (I don't think that word means what you think it means) just pushed everything over the top.

"King of Lowsec" is meaningless and I think CCP would benefit from staging competitions and titles that actually had some value the community at large.

Hi hello friend. I have most generously done you the service of rewording your post into a much more efficient use of words. I do so hope that you will appreciate the effort as it took considerable parsing out of your extremely superfluous and horribly inefficient excesses. It now reads as follows:

I did not win, and PL did win. This angers me. CCP are dirty cheaters.


I think you will agree that this accurately sums up all of the sentiments found in your post, without the disastrous attempts at coating it with anything resembling logical debate.

Thank you for your time.

I fully support this idea, perhaps some form of tournament between alliances?
