Eve Online top opinion maker takes a plunge at the topic of the week.

[spoiler show=”Editor’s Note”]Editor’s Note: Eve Online’s sweetheart, loathed by some, worshiped by others. She enjoys a great following within the EVE community. She once took sold kisses at Jita and almost crashed the Eve Online economy. Some even call her an Space-Cleopatra of sorts. Eve News24 is happy to showcase Mintchip’s videos, for your viewing pleasure:[/spoiler]

  6. We saw the real Mittani that day and what he is realy like. Alchohol lowers your inhibitions and so he said what he realy meant to say. Being drunk is no excuse. And being a CSM chairman he represents the Eve community and should be held accountable for his actions in a public forum just like politicians are in real life.

  7. And that’s why I will never drink in my life (Jesus that’s hard to do) (just a little bit)…

  8. Sorry, but what he did was deplorable and asinine. I can’t believe people are making excuses (call them whatever you want; they are excuses) saying that “it isn’t a big deal”, “it was in jest” or “he’s apologised”. Maybe it’s that the playerbase of EVE is so emotionally stunted that they don’t realise why such behaviour is unacceptable *in real life*. Maybe they are just an apathetic crowd. The point is that A. Gianturco’s comments were out of line and his apology is as fake as they come.

  10. I’m not making an argument; merely stating my opinion. And I am basing it on reality, nothing more and nothing less. It’s people like you who have nothing of weight to say so you have to construct silly rhetoric to make (meaningless) points.

  12. I doubt he is sorry. In his apology he said “leaving me and my people free to do as we please without needing to consider corporate, political, or media ramifications every time we make a **** joke, offend someone, or sell a supercap made of vapor.” And as for him saying this because he was drunk, he actually planned this before hand as you can hear in this clip: /watch?v=fTRQ05Bqq_E (starting 7:20)

  13. I don’t think its funny to try and push a guy over the edge and kill himself, in my eyes thats pretty sick, people play eve to get away from real life or to have fun, but everyone knows there’s a line you just don’t cross and mittani leap over that line, and what comes around goes around, if this guy had went through with killing himself then mittani should be held responsible, and when he’s in prison and becomes his cell-mates new gf, he will get small taste of how that guy felt like.

  14. You are just making excuses for him, his actions were that of a pathetic human being, his apology was pathetic i.e – “leaving me and my people free to do as we please without needing to consider corporate, political, or media ramifications every time we make a **** joke, offend someone, or sell a supercap made of vapor.”, the sort of thing you expect from a spoilt child.As for his whining about being his ban, it is stupid computer game, perhaps he should HTFU, then grow up, then get a life.

  15. A lot of what was said in many ways is just common sense, imo. However, many people use online to enhance their personalities to levels that they normally don’t have in real life.And as far as GS destroying Jita…..when has GS actually fullfilled a promise it’s made? They need to just go back to getting whipped by NC.

  24. If you saw his presentation from last year you will see that he is an extremely intelligent, serious individual, but that didn’t go over well with the crowd, so this year he tried acting more like his in game persona and it failed dramatically. I personally feel like he is embarrassed at this public shamefulness because it hurts his RL appearance. If you have anything to add or debate to this, please let me know.

  25. I’ve always said fire kills itself and that’s what Mitranny did to his reputation. I wonder how he would feel if someone he loved killed themself because of someone else exploiting their real life human vulnerabilities. We as humans are not perfect and each of us have our own problems, but what Mitranny did IS PUNISHABLE BY U.S. LAW given if he was successful in his attempt regardless if he was drunk or not.

      Last I knew, this bill was never passed over constitutional concerns…I would guess freedom of speech. Secondly, whoever suggested a lawsuit is being silly. Not to be cruel, but the guy didn't kill himself….the damages to be awarded would be limited at best and likely there wouldn't be any of substance.

      That said, I think Mittens likely just banished himself to simply being the Goonian that he is rather than playing nice guy politician. Wonder what the vote looks like next year? Goons and friends will keep him on the CSM as long as he wants to be on it I'd think.

      Their prestige is limited to the company they are retained by. I'm going to hazard a guess that if he had so much time to play an MMO, he didn't work for a big firm.

    What Mittani has done is unacceptable in virtual reality or in real life. To complain about the lenient punishment imposed by CCP and threatening a Jita-bombing to celebrate his un-banning equates to a convicted criminal claiming persecution against justice being exercised and exacting revenge on parole.

    This childish behaviour demonstrates Mittani's immature character as a person completely unfit for the leadership role of CSM

    Mintchip was clearly making an observational point. It disgust me people behave like complete jerks behind the veil of internet anonymity. Grow up

    1. Imigo

      I'll preface my statement with this: I have no veil of internet anonymity (I ran for CSM last year so my real identity is out there for anybody who looks), and neither does The Mittani (for the same reason).

      EVE Online is a game. In particular, it is a game about blowing up spaceships. Keep that in mind when you start making parallels to what might happen to real life criminals. Just imagine if the same parallels were made with in-game activities in GTA, or CoD, or even the fucking Sims.

      Threats against The Mittani's dog however are not within the boundaries of a game. I wonder where you stand on those?

      April 1, 2012 at 2:25 am Reply
      1. Fidens

        Perhaps you've misunderstood. Although EVE online is game, encouraging others to cyber bully or even giving them the opportunity to attack someone who may be mentally vulnerable and potentially suicidal in a public arena that is alliance panel crosses the line.

        Ransoming someone as a scary EVE pirate is one thing but when that sort of behaviour involves real life problems then it's just unacceptable. You wouldn't want people to send your own mother hate mail now would you?

        I'm glad you have the guts to stand publicly in CSM but the point above refers to the numerous profanity filled comments with a nameless tag. Do you honestly believe people, like those above, would walk the street and shout insults at the first person that looked at them funny or made a comment they didn't entirely disagree with or even the for the fun of it?

        Threatening people's pet's is not something I do and is a completely different kettle of fish

        1. Imigo

          Yes, I'm quite familiar with Gabriel's Greater Internet Dickwad Theory, but that's not what we're talking about here (although I do appreciate being able to engage in a reasonable discussion about it, and on the Internet of all places!).

          What you said was "What Mittani has done is unacceptable in virtual reality or in real life". What he did was encourage people to attack somebody's internet spaceships. We do this all the time in EVE Online, it's the core foundation of the game. How can it be "unacceptable in virtual reality"? And again, The Mittani was a dick about suggesting at Fanfest that people blow this guy's ships up. He saw this in the video footage and apologised to the guy for it. He didn't blame being drunk, and it wasn't a conditional apology.

          Sure, suggesting that people harass somebody in reality is unacceptable, regardless of whether they are suicidal or not, but (and let me be very clear about this) EVE Online is a game about blowing up spaceships, it is not reality.

          Now you're saying "when that sort of behaviour involves real life problems then it's just unacceptable", which strikes me as odd. From what you're saying, anybody who has logged in to EVE while they're feeling bad should have special rules for whether you can engage their ships or not.

          In the version of EVE I play it's generally accepted that if you undock your spaceship it's possible that you might lose it. It's your choice to undock a ship, and (noobs aside) everybody should be well aware that suicide ganking happens. It's not everybody else's responsibility to check to make sure you're mentally healthy before ganking, or even to stop if you say you're feeling bad.
