The goons pulled a fast one on all of us. We all knew that Jita was going to burn in celebration of The Mittani getting 10,000 votes in the CSM elections. It then kind of quasi changed to be as a way to get back at care bears for Mittens getting banned for his drunken comments (It doesn't have to make sense, their Goons).
What they did though was in my opinion brilliant. This is just information I read so it might not be true, but if it is, well done Goons, well done. The Goons knew that the smart care bear would make his final freighter runs a day or two before the official start date and then steer clear of Jita. The CFC then leaked that they would start a day early to catch these bears that were smarter than the average ones; they then proceeded to give the entire care bear population a giant phallic middle finger and did it a day earlier than that.
Love the Goons, hate the Goons, care bears, PvP gods. It doesn't matter who you are, this is why we play Eve. I've seen a few people in certain chats and on forums saying that the CFC are ruining the game and CCP should step in and make this kind of activity against the EULA. To those of you saying that, I say, grow a pair, understand the game you're playing, and stop bitching.
THIS is why I play Eve, not to suicide gake, but because people can organize something of this scale. If CCP stepped in and said "no more", there game would lose its interest and die overnight. In a game where your actions matter, things like this are going to happen and I say bring on more of it.
So don't be a baby and don't be stupid and fly your freighter into Jita this weekend. Instead, why not join the fight against the Goons and try to save those helpless care bears? Or join the side of the Goons and help suicide all those evil little bears. Or go make an alliance and take over the CFC's sovereignty while they're distracted. Or go into one of the other thousands of systems the game offers. Point it, stop bitching and go play eve.
