It's the countdown to the Eve Gate re-opening and an invasion of New Eden from Earth's super advanced spaceships. Shocked

Hello ladies (and dudes pretending to be ladies)! Say hello to New Eden's 2nd hottest Intaki! It's me. You can say hello to me. Hi.

Is there a DUST release on that day? Or are we assuming that it's EVE?

It's a count down to the return of ISD Stenson and the lock fest that will follow.

New mega faction, Earth, is introduced.

That makes it the 5th of February, exactly 5 years since Mittens took over BoB. Not sure what this means, probably nothing, but an interesting date indeed.
Hopefully CCP finally opens the gates to Jove space to bring us more 10% TiDi goodness.

Its a countdown to the answer of the oldest question in the universe, the first question, the one that must never be answered....

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Why would they? It's trivial to calculate it's position in space on the fly. CCP has all the data necessary to change the absolute coordinates into relative ones and that calculation could be easily done on the client too. No?

But you're forgetting a couple of things:
  1. Did you specify relative or absolute location as you saved your bookmarks?
  2. The CCP devs love to troll the players.

It was the day CCP was announcing their merger with Norwegian Developer's Funcom.

Swing and a miss...

Military experts are calling this a massive mindfuck.

But at least it keeps you lot busy trying to guess what it's all about and out of trouble.

Some superficial feature, best case expansion with those new types of gates.

I wish for a long term plan for modernizing the core technologies to enhance game play but I'm not sure that's gonna ever happen...

Maybe it is when they announce that the titans in the new titan graveyard are going to come back as ZOMBIE TITANS and try to take over New Eden.

I have a very bad feeling that countdown has something to do with all those fedos they gave away at Christmas. Maybe I should get rid of mine... unless of course they might automatically turn into billions of isk in your wallet. Hmm, think I am gonna chance it and keep mine. Lol

Look at the HTML source code. It's counting down to the opening of a new server, Turbulence.

I think the counter is an internal test.

Someone asked "How do you keep thousands of idiots in suspense?"

Well played you rat bastages.
