Thats a steaming load.

If that was the case there was no need for the loot.

The loot made it complete crap and an insult to all other players the couldnt participate or are have nothing in that area to participate with.

This was a sick Joke.

Those plex and Nex items = IRL in most people minds.

Nothing against those that took part. But CCP is on the hook for stupidity again.

The amazing thing is most of the people who came to this fight probably weren't the least bit concerned with the loot. I know when I first saw what was going down, my only thought was "CCP Killmail?!? Big smile". I didn't care at all about the loot, not one bit, I don't PVP to get rich. A plex dropping? I can earn that in a few hours. Heck, I can probably earn it faster staying in my home system ratting than flying all the way out to the fight and trying to scoup one then flying back, certainly safer. It's not like CCP ships were dropping officer mods left and right. I might be wrong here, but I'd be willing to bet all the isk in my wallet (not a lot FYI) that PL supers are rich enough they don't care one bit about the loot drop either.

The people that were out there, for the most part, are the ones that want fights and killmails. I'm sure there were some that were out there to try to make it rich, but these weren't the big alliances, those guys are already rich, they own supers ffs. It really shows the difference between those complaining about how much isk was injected and those that want more goodfights with CCP.

So you agree that loot should not have been in their ships to begin with.

Just so I'm understanding this correctly, can you confirm that your statement is that because we dropped some items for people to loot in the arena during this single event in a single system in a rather large videogame we were insulting everyone who couldn't be there?

Do you have any suggestions for how this could be improved upon?

It's a difficult question and I'm very curious to hear opinions about improvement.

You shouldn't have had LOOT with IRL money value in your ships to begin with.

Its freaking captain obvious level stuff here.

All you did was **** off a lot of people with that.

Im going to add you should have come out in lots of small gangs and roamed with that gang not sit there and wait for someone to hot drop you. You should have used the opportunity to promoted small gang hit and run PvP not sit in a system and wait for people to gank you. There are millions of things you could have done.

In the end you excluded lots of people from having the chance to interact with you on a meaningful level. Only the Large alliances really got to have fun.

Wow people will find a way to complain about anything.


That said I wouldn't be opposed to CCP running around in fleets and killing players on a more regular basis loot or no loot.

You guys need the pew pew practice anyway.

There was still the chance of the items not dropping, I really don't get why this is perceived by some as a problem.

Quoting for truth. The Jita fleet actually discussed loot for a moment, and the first question was how we'd divide it up. After a few joke suggestions ("Everyone gets 5 minutes of free playtime.") the general consensus was that no one gave a crap. The motivation was for kills and fun. The FC was calling targets based on easy kills or infamy ("He the guy responsible for fixing lag? Not on my machine. Primary him first.")

I can't speak for everyone, but I'm not at all concerned with what was in the holds of those ships, and I didn't get the impression that many of the other members in fleet did either. Just getting on Dr. EyjoG's killmaill and a few others is fine for me. =D
