Good grief, think before you post.

1) If they did it as a small fleet, it wouldn't be a big event.
2) If they did it as a small fleet and there wasn't any prior announcement of it, you'd still never see them - hardly anyone would.
3) If they did it as a small fleet and DID announce it like they do, it would be over quicker as the organized fleets wipe them out quicker.

Really, which smaller fleet option would you have them do that makes you happier? Or did you want them to email you personally so you got your own event?

Seriously people - think. Don't just whine that you missed out.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Hmm?

So you blame the UI gang?

I wonder who'll show up on Zulu's killmail after the next event ;)


Crap, how do I backpedal myself out of this?

Blueprints are over the top loot now?

Maybe you should get off your high horse, nobody got the loot, and even if they did it wasn't much, slightly more than 5 billion, I've killed supers that drop more than that.

Seriously people - think. Don't just whine that you missed out.


1) If there were lots of smaller fleets in different areas it WOULD be a big event
2) Open your eyes and you'd see them regardless of numbers
3) It wouldn't be over any quicker when there are lots of them to hunt down in lots of different areas

Really, why don't you read what I wrote? I'm not interested in this. I am interested in something other than 1 style of gameplay being represented. I am interested in the providing a chance to all the others who would like to join in but have little opportunity.
Seriously -think. Your fingers move faster than your neurons. Don't just use the word whine and think it makes your opinion valid over others.

Oh, so it'd be like a game of hide and seek? Or "Guess what roaming gang will kill the lone CCP ship"?

Like it or not, EVE Online is a game of fleet warfare. It's a space MMO, which unlike some games actually is "Massively Multiplayer", meaning that many players work together to achieve a common goal.

Perhaps you should find a group of people that can help you accomplish the goal of killing CCP. This can either be long-term through joining a larger alliance, short term by organizing a fleet in advance, with a coherent fleet doctrine, good FC and plenty of scouts, or spontaneous by organizing a public fleet with anyone who wants to join in.

The reason why the "big alliances" dominate these events is because we're organized. You're not. Adapt or die. :)

Hell of a note....

Saturday afternoon in Texas, USA and just learning that "keeping an eye out for fun goings on for this weekend" was actually code language for "go back to bed, you missed it".

Bleh.

Skip to 0:43:38 to watch me wipe-out CCP's drones and stray pods before any of the fleets arrive. \o/
