Can be said for both sides of the arguement. It affects him in the same way it affects you and it affects me. On a personal level, nothing. But on an eve wide scale, negative rep is bad for eve, and as such, bad for eve development, bad for all in eve equally. For you, and everybody else in the Goon coalition, the worst extra effect would be fall of goonswarms. But now to quote many from the coalition.

It is only internet space ship computer pixels, big deal.

As such, it won't affect the gameplay in the slightest bit more for goon coalition members. Same thing he has, is the same thing you have, same thing I have. Don't want to see it negatively affect ccp.

Edit: Exception would be if you are RL friends/associates and this is having RL repurcussions. In those cases, statement redacted.

Personally, I'd prefer that CCP don't get involved directly unless they have to. This is a community event about a community-elected official's conduct, so let the community sort it out.


If CCP claims to launch an investigation I would consider that to be rather direct involvement. It's the not following up and the sudden apology that makes me wonder the sincerity of it.

I saw the footage a moment ago and though a line was crossed, it's probably not deserving of this level of drama either.

Ok guys. I figured out a solution to this entire dilemma.

It's really simple actually. It's fair, just and lets everyone provide their input and have their say.

If you really, truly, deeply honestly believe that The Mittani was wrong by what he said while drunk at a party in Iceland do this:

Don't vote for him when he runs for CSM 8.

If the majority of the player base don't like him, well hey, he won't get in and everything will be sunshine and rainbows.

That sounds fair doesn't it?

No dice. Just about everyone I've shown it to thought that even the public apology was going too far for what was said and they're subbing up to support him.



Don't spend all that Moon goo in one place....Mittens may need it for Damage control.....Cool

Mittens just put out a PR disaster and put CCP's head on a chopping block for the rest of the online community. Mittens didn't only make him and Goonswarm and the CSM look bad, he made CCP and Eve Online look bad to others who don't play this game. CCP will have to force their hand in this issue by removing him from the CSM all together and a possibility of a temporary ban to save themselves PR brownie points. If they don't, well then just face the hellfire that Mittens has aroused.

From a logical standpoint, there's no reason to think the two are in any way related. There's no evidence that CCP is in any way behind this "apology".

From the language CCP used, I get the impression that their "investigation" is more to do with their own employee conduct. Notice how when Mittani starts the giving-out-the-name-to-be-harassed part, the CCP employee present tries to regain control of the situation? I bet they're investigating their own handling of the incident and how to prevent another "Mittanigate" in future FanFests, not anything regarding Mittani directly.

Purely speculation of course, but it seems logical to me.

Quote:

Again, from a purely logical standpoint he broke no rules that I'm aware of. I'm trying to keep my own personal opinion out of my discussion(s) on this topic, since they're both irrelevant and potentially dangerous. I did go on record saying that I thought he should apologize though, which he has done. I doubt the sincerity of it, but the first thing I learned about this game and the people who play it is that you can trust absolutely no one at face value...and Mittani is already known to not be trustworthy.

I'm sorry, I don't have direct access to endless Moon-goo with which to buy alt accounts. Would you mind spreading some around so that we can all rig the vote? Lol

That has nothing to do with this, quit trying to distract from the main issue at hand. You forum trolls are not that funny really.

People **** up. That's why they're people. I for one have absolutely said stupid **** I'd wished I'd never said. Happily I didn't get up drunk in front of a ton of people who also happened to then post it on the internet when Id done so.

Not my place to judge or get revenge (that'd be the place of the one actually insulted); the role of public embare-assment has done its work.

Now someone else do something ******* stupid so we can have new drama and get on with our lives. Twisted

I wish I could believe that. :)

If they were the best way, we'd be making progress.

I simply am unable, with the current limitations of the human condition, to consider a better approach.

That is not the same, nor is the manipulation of my original quote.

Do you have literally everyone else in this thread on ignore because you just seem to pop in, make a random, moronic comment with no relevance to the current topic of discussion then leave.

Also I'm still only seeing 4 minor articles about this on a google news search for eve or eve fanfest and nothing outside the gaming press and the comments are mixed. I'd hardly call that a PR disaster.

I guess the CFC didn't get the memo, too busy white knighting The Mittani
