  • [NEWS] Closure of all State Embassies within the Federation. in EVE Communication Center

    The CEP doesn't want open war with the Federation, despite what people seem to think, they're smarter than that. They know the consequences of their actions and it was clearly hotly debated. Whatever their reasons are, I imagine they're good ones.

    If the Kasaras family are paid off, it was a long term investment.

  • An Idea: Because I am bored for the moment. in EVE Communication Center

    As in the largest ship in comparison to what I was in at the time?
    Charon in a Cerberus. (I was alone at the time)
    Largest in the smallest ship that I'm capable of flying?(Going to limit to frigate, I've never gotten a kill in an Ibis) Hurricane in a Federation Navy Comet(I was not alone at the time).

    What about out of the pod fights? Been in any notable ones?

  • Tell us about your home planet. in EVE Communication Center

    I grew up on a fairly standard station in Caldari space, I traveled a lot due to my parents work, but I think the most I was ever away was six months, so I'd probably consider it my home despite constantly leaving.

    My bed was probably the closest thing to a hidey hole I had, since the stations plans were likely extensive. It was built into the wall, so I'd hang blankets over the opening, I've always liked that style of bed. People complain that it's claustrophobic but I find it comforting.

    I passed the time with stargazing, fighting(of the approved, controlled kind), reading.. Sometimes I'd talk with people passing through about where ever they'd come from and on-board what. And schooling, of course. Which I mostly enjoyed.

    The first time I went to a planet was when I was around 17, it was a tundra world. I'd go out to this place not far from where we were staying(It was a little cabin built on a treeline. fairly remote) and lay down and just look at the stars. Stargazing is different on a planet. I nearly froze to death because apparently planets have weather? Who would have thought. Not me, clearly.

    Not really sure what else to talk about that's related to where I grew up.

    For me now, home is where my ships are. I like wormholes because of how much they let me see. You can look through a wormhole and see the stars for a completely different region, someone else's sky.

    Not sure where I was going with that so I'll stop before it gets too overly dramatic and pseudo-deep.

  • Tell us about your home planet. in EVE Communication Center

    I'm quickly coming to the conclusion that I had an incredibly boring and unremarkable childhood in an incredibly boring and unremarkable location.

    Compared to people that have posted so far anyway.

    Let's save the ceaseless recriminations and personal attacks for other threads? There are at least a half-dozen that are well-suited for that at the moment.


    Agreed.

    On another note, why is it that the previously competent intelligence agencies of New Eden suddenly can't manage to keep anything to themselves? The amount of leaks recently is odd.

    If they'd have destroyed it in the first place then it wouldn't have been there to steal for use against a Caldari planet. You can't honestly believe that it was preserved to research for anything other than military purposes.


    It says a lot about you that you don't even consider the possibility that something might be done for the good of other people.

    Olga Drottning wrote:

    The argument that it probably exists elsewhere and therefore a cure was required is tired and done. It's not been found anywhere else in the cluster to date. If by some astronomical chance it is, there are plenty more stars to tow these things into.


    That's ridiculously short sighted. The chances of Kyonoke existing in only one location are tiny.

    Olga Drottning wrote:

    But now the cat's out of the bag anyway. We can destroy the sources we know about, but then some unknown actor still has it - And because of that, New Eden should know that the State is ultimately at fault for not destroying the pathogen when it was contained.


    Great plan. Let's destroy something that could yield valuable research because we're afraid! Those scientist types are in over their heads, wanting "tests" and other such silly things. Thinking about "the future", whatever that means(Probably means the future of bioweapons.). Why don't they understand that all problems can be solved via explosives.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    When dealing with an unknown disease, destroying it is the least useful option, especially considering that if it was present in the Pit, chances are it's present elsewhere. Studying it was the best choice they could have made, and it clearly lead to an effective containment method being developed.

    As for your conspiracy, others have already addressed just how little sense that makes. If the State had developed a bioweapon with Kyonoke, one of its first uses probably wouldn't be on a populated Caldari planet.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    Hopefully Myrskaa can be used to gather data on Kyonoke to prevent this exact situation from ever happening again. It's already shown the effectiveness of completely isolating a city with a nanoshield dome. If there are any future outbreaks we can hope that more time will be devoted to providing comfort to the victims, however in this case there simply wasn't time. The first priority was making sure it couldn't spread to the rest of the planet.


    After this is over, we should make sure that the dead are remembered.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    Protesting a quarantine is pointless. I'm not sure what they hoped to accomplish. Surely the footage, real or fake, would show people why the quarantine is so strict. That's what kyonoke did to one city. If any of the quarantines are broken for any reason, it'll get far, far worse than that.

    I don't envy the CEP. No matter what happens here, they'll get the blame for it. The Scope seems to want that.

    They provide free cakes and sandwiches cut into little triangles to pacify them.

  • BREAKING: Ishukone CEO Derided At CEP Session in EVE Communication Center

    As to the rest, to be honest, I suspect the reason you aren't more roundly denounced by other State loyalists is how loudly, how incessantly, and how irrationally you berate those who speak against you. For most, it's easier to tolerate your blatant insanity than to actually denounce it for what it is.


    I would denounce her but that requires me to care about her. I tolerate her in the same way I tolerate the dirt that builds up under my furniture. I could clean it out.. But.. Ehh.

  • [BREAKING NEWS] Kyonoke Outbreak Confirmed Inside Federal Borders in EVE Communication Center

    Nevyn Auscent wrote:

    Given that as utterly uninvolved capsuleers we were speculating as to it possibly being Kyonoke the second the first quarantine happened, and we had no information at all about any symptoms, you are very heavily reaching for a conspiracy here.
    A basic set of symptoms described would cause the suspicion very easily without being able to confirm it till several days later.
    And given we aren't a need to know agency there was no need for them to release any information to us.


    Baseless Galnet speculation by capsuleers isn't the same as a memo sent to Mentas Blaque.

    The only conspiracy I suggested was that whoever leaked the memo had a specific goal in mind, and that it wasn't informing the public.

    Uh, you might want to go and read that article again.
    They had suspicions.... you know, the same things we all had. They didn't have it confirmed at the time.


    It's dated before it was confirmed as Kyonoke on Oijanen II and the article says that it details suspicions and is heavily censored. They had enough reasons to believe it was Kyonoke. I'd like to know those reasons.

    Somehow I doubt they'll willingly release the full memo, and whoever did leak it clearly only wanted certain information to be known.

  • [BREAKING NEWS] Kyonoke Outbreak Confirmed Inside Federal Borders in EVE Communication Center

    The fact that they identified it without access to the station within a day suggests they know far more than they're letting on about this strain.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    And here it is.

    So, that's two confirmed Kyonoke. It's a very censored release though. Doesn't tell us much except that it is Kyonoke, and that they knew that from day one.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    Oijanen has incredibly large amounts of cyno/Jump Freighter traffic. Narrowing it down would be impossible, however most of them simply cyno in and warp to highsec via Airaken.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    I'm currently in Oijanen, the system is very active since it's a pipeline from the Drone Regions to Jita, and some of the traffic is hostile, so anyone planning to station themselves in Oijanen should keep that in mind.

    Mogul Outpost Sierra is a freeport Astrahus in the system and is a good location to stage from. Airaken is a highsec system that borders Oijanen, just 8 jumps to Jita, and could also be used if you don't want to move assets into lowsec.

  • [Kyonoke] Contagion Tracking, Containment, Planning in EVE Communication Center

    The common assumption as to how its spread so far seems to be that people have breached the quarantine, or that it was a targeted attack, but what if the contagion doesn't show symptoms immediately? All of the initial victims were infected from a common source and then traveled to these locations where the disease, whatever it is, became active and spread. We should consider looking for common areas between the locations, and also being prepared for more outbreaks if this is the case.
