CCP combat fleet incursions and rules of engagement

As many of you may have seen from the Scope News alert on Facebook or on the EVE Online news center, a CCP fleet has departed Polaris on a training exercise. The fleet will be appearing, possibly in a system near you, and should be considered dangerous. Well, you guys know we know nothing about EVE so maybe we are harmless. Some of you will find out if it is the former or latter which is true.

Our incursions are a training exercise for something much bigger later this year and we want players to attack us and have fun. As a result, we have rules of engagement for how the CCP fleet will interact with other players. Naturally, you guys are free to shoot us at will and you operate under no rule set outside of the normal EVE Online rules.

Please see the set of rules below:

1. CCP Devs will be flying ships which are available to all pilots so no exotic ships such as the Eidolon will be used. We want to ensure that all players have a fair chance to participate and the test environment ships are too much to handle.
2. All CCP ships will be Tech I or Tech II fit.
3. CCP Devs will attack players, generally in response to being shot at first. We may aggress on ships which are spying on us or setting up for a hostile fleet warp in.
4. CCP Devs will NOT pod players who lose a ship.
5. CCP Devs will not be able to use slash commands or any other insider tools which give an unfair advantage.
6. The CCP ships will be strong and the use of pirate implant sets or other enhanced implants will be used.
7. CCP will engage in some friendly smack but will not respond or engage in any smack which is considered obscene, racist or sexist under any circumstances.

So what is this all about? Well we want you guys to have fun. Many times we have seen requests from players for more live events which are not centered around the Sansha incursions. We are taking this opportunity to bring a fleet for you to fight, or assist if you so desire. Yeah right!

We understand that many of our players love to fight so there is every chance that you will obliterate us in quick time. If that happens, be sure to check our wrecks for some very valuable loot. There will be plenty in our cargo.

If you have any questions, please let us know in this thread and we will do our best to answer them.
