  • ♥ Manfred Sideous ♥ for ♥[CSM 10]♥ in Council of Stellar Management

    I've flown with Manny in many roles over the past several years. He's opinionated, stubborn and strong minded. I've had more than a few arguments with him, where we haven't seen eye to eye. He's also someone who has the best interests of the game in mind, and who will not hesitate to voice his opinion to that effect.

    I fully trust Manny to be an excellent addition to the CSM, and he's got my full support.

    Critical thinking?? Maybe they should teach logical thinking. If only 1000 people entered the system it would be IMPOSSIBLE for more than that to have participated.


    The anger that manifests in your posting may not contribute well to getting your point across, but I'll respond anyway.

    System capped at around 1000. This means that during this time, there may have been pilots killed and/or left the system voluntarily.

    600 pilots were killed during this event. It is reasonable to assume that when the peak was reached, some of those 600 had already been killed.

    Some pilots also log off, crash or leave the system. Those pilots are not necessarily counted in the peak number of capsuleers in system.

    To put it in another way, if a bus can hold 100 people, is it reasonable to assume that only 100 people have traveled on that bus, or is it more reasonable to assume that since people get on or off the bus at different stops, the total amount of people that have traveled on the bus is more than the peak number of passengers?

  • Memory Leak in EVE Technology and Research Center

    Might be interesting to note that in the recent battle in HED-GP, I experienced a huge increase in memory usage, resulting in heavy swapping (upwards of 150 hard page faults/s), rendering all clients eventually completely unresponsive (fortunately after the battle was won by us).

    I was at the time running four clients, on an AMD Radeon 7970. 12 GB of RAM. Each client reported upwards of 3.7 gigs of memory usage, with about 1-1.5 gigs each swapped out. Relogging the clients brought the memory usage down to a manageable 700-900 MB each.

    If this is related, it may be the case that there is a memory leak that is not related to the Nvidia drivers, as I've been running Radeon graphics card exclusively on that machine for the past few years.

  • A Film About Women In Gaming Is Going Ahead in EVE Communication Center

    Some of the women in gaming are more concerned with playing the game rather than being "women gamers". Case in point, I got booted from the WGoE channel in-game after fanfest because I couldn't be bother to do another TS Interview, despite having been in that channel for years and met several of the members in real life (including Fanfest 2013). I think it's great that the channel exists, but I personally paid little attention to it as most of its members didn't play eve at the same level as I do and I was more focused on playing the game.

    Also, I can confirm that Seliine is the most feared housewife in EVE.

  • [WTS] Revenant BPC (Closed) in EVE Marketplace

  • WTA Revenant blueprint - Closed in EVE Marketplace

    Withdrawing my BO offer due to unprofessional behavior of the seller.

    The seller evemailed me, accepting my BO. When I told the seller I'd accept the contract one or two days down the line as I needed to liquidate some assets, the seller started contacting other parties to weasel out a higher offer. Surprise, contacting one of my alliance mates behind my back MIGHT, you know, be found out by me.

    I've also learned that the location of the BPC has been leaked to various entities known for suicide ganking. Again, surprise, I have friends within those entities.

    In the interest of full disclosure, the BPC is located in Lermireve VIII - Moon 15 - CONCORD Treasury. I wish the seller luck with selling this BPC in the future.

    Actually, if you read through this thread, you'll see that there are quite a few people who believe Hydra's story, or at the very least that Hydra's story is a plausible explanation given the circumstances and evidence that have so far been presented.

  • Open letter to CCP and the community regarding HYDRA and OB ban from ATX in EVE Communication Center




    Were Hydra and 0utbreak stupid to merge into a single corp on SiSi for the tournament practice?

    Yes.

    Did they have malicious intent?


    I don't know. I want to believe that they did not.


    Were CCP stupid to make such a harsh ruling, and sticking with it even after learning about the GM response?

    Yes.

    Did they have malicious intent?

    I don't know. I want to believe that they did not.

  • Open letter to CCP and the community regarding HYDRA and OB ban from ATX in EVE Communication Center

    In addition to my post, the following quote from CCP Loxy regarding RvB highlights my point:

    Quote:
    We have been in contact with the executor of both alliances and have reached a decision that will allow both sides to compete together.


    This clearly indicates that the ATX team contacted the RvB alliances regarding concerns that both teams were considered to be one entity.

    That they failed to do so regarding Hydra and 0utbreak, despite requests from Hydra and 0utbreak for clarification, suggest that the ATX team either made a huge mistake in their correspondence with the teams, for which they rightfully should make amends and speak to both teams in order to reach a compromise, OR intentionally failed to respond to the concerns, with implications that are far worse.

  • Open letter to CCP and the community regarding HYDRA and OB ban from ATX in EVE Communication Center

    I've been reading over this decision, the correspondence between CCP and various parties, as well as comments made by people in this thread, as well as other forums. As far as I'm concerned, my stance is as follows:

    * Had Hydra and 0utbreak not attempted to contact CCP, the decision to ban them would have been valid.

    * Had Hydra and 0utbreak attempted to contact CCP, and proceeded to train without receiving a response from neither the ATX team nor GMs, and proceeded to train together, the ban would have been valid.

    * Had Hydra and 0utbreak attempted to contact CCP, received a response that they were not to train together, yet continued to do so, the decision to ban them would have been valid.

    * Had Hydra and 0utbreak attempted to contact CCP, received a response from the GM team that they were permitted to train together, later to receive a response from the ATX team indicating the opposite, and then continued to train together, the decision to ban them would have been valid.


    None of the above scenarios took place.

    Instead, the ATX team failed to respond to the concerns raised by Hydra and 0utbreak. It can be argued that Hydra and 0utbreak should not have worked that closely together on the test server, but given that they had received permission to train together by a GM, an employee representing CCP, it is certainly plausible that they did so in order to reduce logistics.

    Was it a smart thing to do? Probably not.

    Is it plausible that they did so with no malicious intentions? Yes.


    Given that the alliance tournament has not yet officially started, it is my opinion that the ATX team should have raised their objections with the Hydra and 0utbreak teams, by contacting both teams and established a dialogue. This is an especially important point considering that the ATX team failed to respond to requests from the Hydra and 0utbreak teams regarding this very issue.

    The failure of the ATX team to establish a dialogue, combined with the harsh nature of their ruling, suggests that the ruling was made to intentionally punish the Hydra and 0utbreak teams for their actions during the last alliance tournament. It can be further speculated that their failure to respond to the concerns raised by the Hydra and 0utbreak teams was part of this plan.

    Is this proof that this is the case? Do I believe this to be the case? No on both questions. But, given the information that we have, it is certainly plausible. In fact, it is about as plausible as Hydra and 0utbreak training together on SiSi in good faith, after having received a response from a GM permitting them to do so.

  • Open letter to CCP and the community regarding HYDRA and OB ban from ATX in EVE Communication Center

    I will state that locking the previous topic to prevent discussion is bad form. The statement should have been locked right off, allowing for a separate comment thread, or not locked at all.

    As far as I'm concerned, this is a sandbox game where metagaming is not only exists, but is a common part of the gameplay. As has seen in many previous tournaments, metagaming HAS been a part of the alliance tournament, with thrown matches, attempts at bribery, spying, betrayals and so on. What was different in AT9 was that two teams working together managed to make it to the finals.

    I can understand CCP's desire to make the ATX finals exciting for all, but their behavior in this matter is less than desirable.

    To state that Hydra and Outbreak are the same entity betrays their ignorance of the poltical spectrum in EVE. It is plainly obvious that the entities are completely separate, although they do work very closely together. The rule should have been stated more clearly, and Hydra's emails and petitions should have been answered promptly. The failure of the alliance tournament team to do so is not a point in their favor.

    For what it's worth, I believe that with proper communication, the ATX team could have prevented this scenario from occurring in the first place. It feels to me that they intentionally let this slide until they could bring the hammer down. If true, this reeks of politics and poor form.

    I would love to see a reconsideration and a response from the ATX team, because as far as I'm concerned right now, this has now turned into a case of bad PR.

    I just want to add that this is the kind of new features that will have players, old and new, rejoicing. :)

    Keep it up, CCP! Very happy to see the direction EVE is going right now. :)

  • New Dev Blog: Ewareness for DeBuff-alo Soldiers in EVE Information Center

    This is awesome, but where can I see the debuffs on the targets?

    EWAR in fleet fights have historically been pretty insignificant, due to the scale of things. With small gangs, it's easy to coordinate ECM/tracking disruption etc, but in fleet fights it's near impossible.

    Being able to see what debuffs a locked target has would be a HUGE buff to ewar in fleetfights, and in a smaller sense in small gangs as well. It'd also let a well coordinated gang outperform a less coordinated gang, by allowing people to spread points, ECM, tracking disruption and sensor dampening among the hostiles.

    Can we PLEASE get debuff displays on targets soon? ;)
