When I got home from work this evening I saw the devblog. It wasn't surprising. I was prepared to move on and relegate this whole affair to the dust bin. But then I read The Mittani's statement on EN24.
ROFL!!!! Poor Mittani! Best tears ever!
I was entirely prepared to change my opinion of the poor bastard.
"Yet for CЅM7 I am going to refuse to accept the Chairmanship when CSM7 takes office‚ but not because of our enemіes trying to use my Fanfest fuckup for ingame political advantage." Is the master of the metagame really complaining about his enemies tactics?
"Why did the shitstorm break out on Monday, when I was drunk on Thursday night? The hard fact is this: the gaming media hates CCP after the Incarna incidents..." When you can't point the finger at yourself, the "media" is the next most obvious choice. Read the entire paragraph here. Is The Mittani taking credit for Crucible? I was there. The Mittani was conspicuously absent.
"As the profile of the CSM has raised due to Vile Rat and my successes on the Council‚ pressure has іncreased on CЅM members – and particularly the Chair – to be ‘upstanding citizens’ in Eve Online itself. An ‘upstanding citizen’ cannot lead Goonswarm." That didn't stop him last year. Not sure that anything has changed. Oh Wait! He got drunk!
"...but after what I’ve seen over the past few months and now at Fanfest, it is clear that I can either lead the CЅM or lead Goonswarm. " Read: "I didn't want that seat anyway"
" We need to get Razor a new home. " How magnanimous of our dear (ex) chairman to give RAZOR a new home.
"Jita will burn." I'm going to get in my stealth bomber and head to 4-4 for the fireworks. Can't wait to watch all those goonies get popped by the gate guns! Popcorn is already in the microwave. Mittens is only 9 months late to the Jita Riots. Someone should tell him its over.
Welcome to the reincarnation of my blog. This will be a public forum (why else would I publish it to a blog?) but mostly I plan to use this space to organize my thoughts about EVE Online and maybe a few random thoughts that are only peripherally related to EVE. I'm familiar with the characters on EVE forums, so comments will be moderated. Trolls, griefers, and those with nothing constructive to add will be ignored. I may also delete anonymous postings; I'm putting myself out here and showing you my face - the least you can do is show yours.
