Sorry Sol.

It's very difficult when people shout stop laughing, it's not a joke, please be serious, ofgs grow up. I haven't been serious since 1997 :| I've been having a mid-life crisis for a decade.

<- does serious face

In all seriousness, the collective outrage is actually a good thing for the community in some ways. Nothing brings us together like a bit of ranting and stuff >.> Least it's not directed at CCP or grr for a change.

Serious mental issues? OK, Doctor... if you say so.


A lot of them it doesn't take a doctor to spot something seriously wrong with some of these people. The guys who neglect their families to play video games? Yeah, not good there, though the one who tried to have sex and run PvP at the same time still stands out in my mind. The two player suicides I know of? Might have had some problems. Cosmic Horror was in a relationship abusive enough that her boyfriend at the time had a friend of his beat her till she miscarried (she was close to where I am and I visited her at the hospital). There was a guy in aridia back in the day who would spam bestiality porn in local that made even Duckeye's worst transgressions against the Minmatar chat channel look mild. It was one of the few good things about BoB running up into Fountain did was I never saw him again.

Now, granted, this is over ten years, and just the worst offenders. But yeah.

From a player base of 400k-500k it is statistically inevitable that you'll have all of those things

Trash individuals, are trash.

Its not the communities fault, but the community can take some degree of responsibility and keep trash where it belongs (in the garbage).

And yes, there are people who behave like trash on these forums too, and should be treated accordingly.

I keep seeing this number being thrown around and I have to wonder why 90% of them never log in.

Clearly the 30-40k that are logged in at any given time are always the exact same players regardless of the time

The contrast is simply incredible.


It's not legitimite to judge the people this way.


It's not #FirstWorldProblems.


Recognize the fact that Reykjaviks property intentionally got damaged
and there is a cost involved in the repairment of this property.
...


Dude, dead women and children, please.







So because some parts of the world are so backward that they commit atrocities such as those in Syria, we should all judge our own country's people's behaviour by their low standard? I could use your argument to justify practically anything, as there is almost always something else worse going on the world.

That's not how it works. There is no excuse for defacing this monument.



When it comes to a name scratched off a computer game's monument to itself, yes, there is always "something else worse going on the world".
Perspective, people.

The average age of an Eve Online player is, I believe, around the 30 mark.

Perhaps CCP believed that a protective covering for the monument was not necessary.

It is sad that CCP were mistaken in their belief.


Well it is in the cities Harbor, exposed to the elements and anybody else who happens by it.

Of course, no one would be stupid enough to believe that we have half a million players that log in once every five days on average.

I have five accounts active now, and thanks to my work schedule I can log in for a decent amount of time for 2-3 consecutive days out of every 5 or so.

So yeah, it happens.

Last year, Xenuria brought his Mom to FanFest, and she mentioned how much she enjoyed it. This got me thinking, and I asked my Mom (78 years young) if she'd like to visit Iceland. One thing lead to another, and while I was at FF, she was doing all the tours including Sisters of EVE. After FF we decided to kick it up a notch and went on a caving tour in one of the lava tubes.

She had a great time but thinks that SOE needs to be a bit more hardcore... Perhaps a special Mothers of EVE tour next year?

I think he was talking about the average Concurrency numbers, which are down. Further, I suspect, but am not certain, that 500k includes all the servers, not just Tranquility.

What's happening to people in Syria is terrible. War in Syria doesn't make defacement of the EVE monument any less terrible.

I'm not sure why you're comparing the two.

Unless you're going to get your checkbook out and donate, or strap a gun to your back and go help the rebels, please stop bringing Syria up like it's your own personal cause. This thread is about the EVE monument and how it pisses us EVE players off that someone screwed with it. Please stay on topic.
