I still look awesome, thank you very much. Also Eve-O only looks bad to those who dont know it or understand it. Refer to Sandbox..

Just to be clear, you don't care about growing the playerbase? Awesome, glad your on the CSM. That attitude will really be helpful when DUST launches. You DO want DUST to fail, right?


No matter what you feel about Mittani or what he said, don't forget DUST comes out pretty soon. I for one would like it to be the best damn FPS on PS3 (and I don't even own a ****station) because I love EVE, and I want what CCP showed us at FanFest. You know, all that sexy DX11 tech and whatnot. This flamewar is getting absurd, and while I originally posted my opinions, it's an internal matter for CCP, and whatever is said for and against Mittens retaining the Chair won't matter in the end. Just because CCP stroked your ego at FanFest, does not mean you Goons own the game. Be proud while you can, but don't fly too close to the sun, that epeen of yours might just melt.

I forgive you, Alex Gianturco.

I hope that the rest of the community can do the same.

"Cyberbullying" is when a child, preteen or teen is tormented, threatened, harassed, humiliated, embarrassed or otherwise targeted by another child, preteen or teen using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies or mobile phones. It has to have a minor on both sides, or at least have been instigated by a minor against another minor. Once adults become involved, it is plain and simple cyber-harassment or cyberstalking. Adult cyber-harassment or cyberstalking is NEVER called cyberbullying.

you've all abused the wis, and exposed him to far more ridicule then mittani ever did.


Hate to be that guy, but THIS. Not to mention the fact that Mittani also has been "harassed" multiple times in this thread, yet I don't see anybody crying out "cyber-bullying" on that...

By blowing this out of proportion the Eve community has done far more damage than Mittani on his own did, this thread should've been locked hours ago.

What's it like, not owning any tech moons?

Titans are still getting nerfed bro

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.


It has to do with why you are posting though

thats a bit old and the comments arnt mixed

dunno if it leaked outside gaming press sofar , but as soon as one picks it up it will spread


Every one of those articles has the Eurogamer article as it's primary source, which cites Twitter as it's primary source, forgive me for not considering them serious news outlets.


thats up to you

but its all over the gaming sites ..


Ok, so I spent a bit more time on this. Its not on the front page of even half the sites linked in that page and its featured prominently in perhaps 1-2. Totally all over the gaming sites.

Justice is something between The Wis, The Mittani and CCP. It is not something delivered by the player base.

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. It does not.

It sounds stupid.

In all seriousness how many of you actually really care about this guys mental health and are instead using it as a attack point because your candidate lost or your titans were almost nerf to hell and back

The lack of Response from CCP is disturbing, Mittens has gone under the ground in hope of the storm will go away and he happily can stay on CSM and in game

but saying he wants to resign and then not do it if he don't removes whatever credibility he have left after that stunt.

I'm glad to see you are, almost word for word, in agreement with Mittani.

Well said.

Not really. As this is still a rather hot topic they will be damned if they do and damned if they don't, either way will add fuel to the fire. Waiting to make a decision, or even announce it if they have is a more logical course to take. Knee jerk actions tend to be regetted later.

Fess up, its not about credibility. You are just sad that you got excited about the idea that he might step down and he hasn't yet. (And probably won't, and good on him.)

Big smile If actual justice were to be served, his punishment would end at being forced to watch replays of his bad jokes and asinine behavior for a few days.

"Like" The Mittanis first post in this thread if you do not want him to resign! Some CCP management people may actually notice the number of likes

Also tell your corpmates who don't read the forums to like the post

(No, NOT this post. But you may like that too if you feel like it.)
