It's a bit harsh that this guy is getting ganked and wardecced out of a misplaced sense of protectiveness towards Mittens. As far as I know his involvement has been:

- zoning out while mining in Eve after a divorce
- getting suicide ganked
- being invited to join a "protection" scheme and accepting
- getting suicide ganked again. A verbal Eve contract isn't worth the pixels it's written on.
- writing an emotional message
- zoning out mining for 6 months
- getting convoed by some stranger who wanted to know whether he was dead.
- having tons of suicide gankers turn up to kill him


It would be business as usual in Eve were it not for the message. The message really did look to me like it was from someone very depressed. Remember those times when we were kids and we were playfighting and some kid we were hitting started screaming "no no, you're really hurting please stop"? There's a point when the griefing should stop.

Anyway, it's now escalated, some dickhead published Mittani's IRL address on the web and someone else threatened to go round and rape his wife.

Mark my words, someone will be in jail by the time this is over.

The Mittani is George Zimmerman and Eve Online is primary school is what you're saying.

If we were talking about things being done with civility, then griefing wouldn't even start.

However, this is online gaming, Mittani has a lot of enemies and a reputation that a lot of people want to deflate. So the griefing stops when the griefers get tired of it.

It's not entirely online, there's been policemen knocking on the door of the Mittani residence much to the annoyance of his wife.

The rumor is that the police showed up as a "suicide watch" from a call.  But no idea how near or far from the truth this is.  Am pretty sure the police showing up part is the truth from what I've read.

The police visit is, according to mittens, based in facts.

Always had a lot of respect for Mittens. The guy was intellegent and articulate. I'm sure he despised me, but I always liked him. If people are sending the police round to his door that's way beyond the pale. And I'm sure its the truth, he wouldnt lie about crap that involves his wife for internet points.

Why are the police visiting him? Are people now griefing him by sending the police out to check on him as a possible suicide?

Having managed to listen through 25 minutes worth of it, I don't think he was so much pissed about "posting standards" as about showing up for interminable POS-shooting ops and having the Goon FC's being dicks towards him and his.

The FCs aren't the problem. The noise is coming from the line membership and jabberati.

There is a pretty fine line between 'reset TEST' and 'kick BTLS'. Without any external threat CFC is getting closer to a civil war, which will inevitably be about posting and whose gang is the coolest. It's probably some way off yet, and the Animes to the east might well become an actual threat at some point, which would delay things further. But in eve, on a long enough time line, only two things are inevitable, drama, and losing your space.

No it isn't. I don't want anyone who plays Eve seriously to do anything in real life ever nor should any other sane human being. It's bad enough they do it in Eve.

The effect of this will be UTTERLY SHATTERING TO THE ENTIRE ECONOMY OF EVE!!!... as people head to Rens, Amarr or Oruse to do their shopping instead.

 Ohhhhh, I see.

I can honestly count on the fingers of one hand the amount of times I've been to Jita. Anyone with any sense sold their stuff in the systems surounding it or went to one of the other market hubs.

You're underestimating just how lazy people are. "Will I have to jump around a bit to pick up the modules I need? :effort: I'll just go to jita."

Uh, in a lot of cases those market hubs are closer in jumping terms than Jita. People go to Jita becasue everyone goes to Jita, and they might find things cheaper there. And for whatever reason Caldari space has a lot of Mission hubs. I went everywhere else becasue the slightly extra expense was worth the lack of aggrivation.

Dont get me wrong, you are ginna blow up a lot of ships... for a day or 2. But after that people will have simply moved to the other hubs and Jita will be a ghost town.

At which people people like me will be zipping in and out buying shit in cloaking Blockade Runners in super lag free conditions  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Facepalm I thought you had played Eve?

If Goons sat in Jita for a month (they won't or course) they'd still be killing people with billions in hold who are chatting away in Jita local saying nothing of relevance has happened yet.  Never underestimate how stupid and lazy your average person is.  This has been all over the forums and in game and in local chat for easily a month beforehand and it's only Saturday morning US time.  Jita has been down to almost 10% time dialation a few times (30 minutes + to warp in a freighter and get to station) and has been full many times preventing people from even getting into system.

http://www.eve-kill.net/?a=system_detail&sys_id=143&scl_id=20 (18 dead freighters)
http://www.eve-kill.net/?a=system_detail&sys_id=143&scl_id=40 (9 dead T3 ships)
http://www.eve-kill.net/?a=system_detail&sys_id=143&scl_id=7 (50+ industrials)
http://www.eve-kill.net/?a=system_detail&sys_id=143&scl_id=2 (Probably 100s of pods)

Only 18 frieghters? Only 50 indistrials? Ohhhhh, I see. I'd have seen those numbers flying through Jita inside half an hour the few times I was there.

Look, TGR said people go to Jita becasue its closer. In a lot of cases, its not. But people go there anyway becasue of inertia, and becasue commercial BOTS are set to go to Jita. People that go to Jita do so not becasue of laziness but becasue its never occured to them to go anywhere else.

Everyone thats actually at the keyboard will have been talking to other people about where else to go buy stuff and will be diverting in increasing numbers elsewhere. It's also in goon culture to be totally Jita centric, and no-one ever talked about the other hubs for whatever reason.

Fact is that this Jita thing is great PR but will not effect the eve economy in the grand scale. And I'm not bieng anti-goon by saying that.

If I was playing now I'd be watching the numbers in the other hubs to see how the numbers are rising as thats the kind of thing that interests me.
