    So the CFC amass the biggest force in EVE history. We have the entire N3/PL supercap/titan fleet tackled on grid with over 1000 sub caps on them. On standby we have 700 dreads, 300 supercapitals and over 100 titans. The order is given for the 700 dreads to jump and with it, we will see the biggest slaughter of supercaps ever, but what happens? The node cant handle it and every dread pilot ends up stuck in jump, but able to be targetted by N3. Think we lost about 600b in dreads and what was CCPs response? "Sorry for the inconvience". Seriously, its a joke now.

    So the biggest force in EvE's history faced of against what i presume was the second biggest force in EvE's history and no one suspected that the servers couldn't handle it despite things going tits up with far less people?

    Yeah that's clearly CCP's fault....

    of course its CCPs fault. Their software/hardware cant handle it and thats not the playerbase' fault. The game is built on the pretense that mass fleet battles can take place when clearly they cant. Sure, if you are a bear, shooting rats you dont notice, but when the big boys play, there are trillions of isk at stake, not only that, it looks like the war is over now because its a stalemate. No one dares escalate. The thing is, had the node been able to handle it, the publicity the fight would have generated would have earned CCP over a million euros (as a conservative estimate based on what the last huge battle like this generated for them). So now the war is over and no more publicity.

    I admit, it was clear that the node would crash, but the buck lies with CCP. They have known about this problem for years and what do they do? Instead of fixing the problem they invest the funds in an FPS that is already dead and some Vampire game.

    Raven Brrrrr!

    The FPS might have survived if they had released it on PC rather than making it console kids only. All they want is COD in space.

    Massive fight tonight... stuck camping Nulli Secunda in their home station, but lots of titans dead. Mineral prices are going to skyrocket as the 50+ dead titans need to be replaced.

    Greatest battle in the history of video games...I was there!

    It all started when Pandemic Legions staging system lost SOV. There are conflicting reports as to how this happened from unpaid sov bills to a sov transfer gone wrong. At first it was no biggie. Nulli Secunda (N3) starting to online TCUs to reclaim the SOV, but a wily Russian scout spotted this. The Ruskies, drunk on vodka dropped a capital fleet to destory the TCU, so N3 dropped their wrecking ball cap/supercap fleet on the ruskies. Mittani gives the order to drop the CFC capital fleet on them and the biggest and bloodiest battle ever is on. CFC have always been risk averse when it comes to supercaps as we dont have the capital fc quality that PL and N3 do but this would be evened out by sheer numbers. The first PL titan went down straight away, alpha's by CFC titans then they just kept on dropping like flies. Sortdragon was primaried by N3 and he tanked like a boss for about 4 hours and in that time we killed about 7 PL titans lol. PL/N3 hoped the US timezone would help, but the numbers who logged on werent what was expected and those that did log on, where pinned down in another staging system by the rest of the CFC. Then Black legion log on (US timezone) alliance and join the fray on the CFC side and it truly is game over then. As I write this, PL/N3 titans are still dying and we havent even started on supercaps yet. Downtime will save N3/PL but it wont save their staging system which is now in our hands, effectivly trapping a huge portion of their war force.

    I would estimate the isk lost when all is said and done to be about 20 trillion isk.

    86 titans left on field, 5 are hostile lol.

    Current count is over 60 N3/PL titans killed lol

    The PR CCP will receive for this will be awesome

    So Pandemic legion, the once heavyweights of EVE online have gone to Mittani, cap in hand, asking to broker a deal for us to let them have access to the station as all their members assets are trapped in there and in return they will leave the war, to which Mittani accepted.

    game over. Goons have won eve

    Yay, you can all go back to your day jobs now!

    I find this stuff fascinating, but ultimately nerdy at the same time, it's brilliant.

    I just wish I had a clue what was going on.

    Doesn't even matter who is winning shouldn't ever be a clear winning side, eve is basically down to two factions now and the high-lowsec are... ok nc. isn't allies with goons in reality but... I don't even nullsec, but there clearly something wrong when it have come to this.

    Here's a half decent description:

    Anyway, I am CFC and not liking it right now. Eve would be a better place with many smaller coalitions, instead of the massive blobs we have right now.

    Oh it gets a whole LOT better when you look at some of the details.. :D

    So apparently the real life financial cost of that battle were around 300.000 - 500.000 USD in ISK value, and it all started because of an unpaid bill.....

    And unless that bill were worth a shit ton more, then this is on a whole new level of fail. :)

    Having read the Enders Game series recently (1-4), I find myself wanting to revisit EVE.

    here is hoping they have a sub-fee sale again. I'm slightly kicking myself for not taking part when sub-fees were 50% off for 3 months or something(Came out to 3 months of subbing for 19$)

    Super disappointed with reading that the Gnosis I bought as an Investment(Fuck you guy who told me rare ships from Events go up in price), I bought it at like 90M ISK and now most places have it for 30-40M ISK. I looked at the past history of all special ships and indeed, they went to insane prices, I was very disappointed to see I lost alot of ISK in that investment. Nothing to do but hold onto it forever more and hope in 10 years it's worth something :p

    So back having a potter around Eve, trying to sort out what i was doing last time (I've got kit all over the place!)...

    I'm currently in a Maller, and looking at this groovy new ISIS thingy I'm mastery level 2 and just getting the last couple of skills to move upto lvl3.

    I've got 25 million in the bank atm, and thinking my next move will be to an Augoror, lot of the skills I already have trained are relevant to that as well, that the right way to be going? Will take me a while to get the cash together so will probably have a lot more of the skills trained before moving.

    What are you wanting to do to make cash? If its missions, I wouldnt go for an Augoror, its more a support ship
     
  23. Shagrat

    Shagrat I am a FH squatter

    yeah i suppose i do generally bomb around doing missions. the only other alternative was mining but that would mean start a whole new round of training. so whats a better alternative to augoror?

    For making money, aim for the Harbinger and level 3's and then go from there....

    So I heard some recent big battle cost 500,000$ in USD< and was EVE's biggest battle ever. Stuff like that makes me want to play again, but then I remember something like that is very rare, and I wouldn't have been in it anyways :p

    I like Eve Fanfest very much. The coverage is second to none. While I'm quite disappointed about what happened to World of Darkness, I am excited about the more action-oriented stuff CCP have been talking about.
