Did CCP actually do that?

I was watching the stream from work as I sadly couldn't participate but did CCP seriously just round up everyone in empire and lead them directly into the CFCs staging systems with no warning or support?

Honestly though anyone who pays attention to what is going on in Eve should have seen that it was a CCP/Dev AWOX once you started moving. That area has literally thousands of CFC pilots staging for the war effort. Any idiot should have known there was no way you were getting through that pipe.

Maybe the event was to show the Empires dieing to the null sec alliances. What next? Goons taking over Gallente empire?

Made it to system but 2/3 of fleet die on the way. Made it back to empire in pod after running 5 gate camps.

My main greivance was the fact that for most of the ppl who were in one of the "staging" systems an hour or two BEFORE the event....were not even able to get to the event before it was over.

I only managed to get 4 jumps away from the second 'staging' before i called it quits after nearly three hours of TiDi'd warp/jumps.

Pretty much wasted my day...to play the slow-mo version of 'Warp Online'.

We expected death, don't think that we are sad about dying ... however we expected CCP to be there making it a Live Event.

FC said "jump [into 0.0 system]", I turned my ship 180 degrees and jumped back to high-sec instead. I was 100% sure it was a trap. 200+ ships in the fleet popped needlessly - along with ~800 more ships in other fleets.

Now I feel myself like an oracle (+ some guilt for leaving fleet instead of trying to stop them). However it's pretty simple to predict outcome of CCP's actions since Incarna: you just have to assume they'll fail in the hardest way possible.

Maybe the Ghost Site mechanic broke, and rather than have everybody saying "fail site - broken" the fleet was diverted into a slaughter.


Reminds me of my roadie days when the band did so horribly the lead guitarist wanted to seal the exits and burn the place down so there would be no witnesses.

I got through the pipe. I got to the beacon. Then I died horribly. About what I expected to happen.

I was hoping that at least a few would make it into 8V- so that I could ***** on kills in a stealth bomber.

Alas, I was only able to ***** on the Brave Newbies fleet.

Part of the Fleet I was in made it to 8V- but lost almost 2/3 of the fleet getting there. And then they said the research station blew as we was aligning to warp.. so then we broke up and tried to make it back to empire space.

To the OP,

Yes. That's exactly what CCP did.

Or MAYBE the event created content by taking a highsec security force to the pirate factions homeland to fight the pirates. Did anyone expect this to not be a pvp event?

Highseccers died due to lack of coordination to players that were better than them. How is that CCPs fault? When PL repped Marlona's Nyx and killed everyone else was that Marlona's fault?

Would you rather CCP magicked everyone to the fight? Or let people pve in tidi?

Surely you dont think CCP was joking, OP?
BoBwins Law: As a discussion/war between two large nullsec entities grows longer, the probability of one comparing the other to BoB aproaches near certainty.
