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]

  4. It’s a loose term. Griefing is allowed & encouraged to a degree. Unfortunately some people do cross the line.

  5. i saw mittani’s comment as overly sarcastic and jokeing and had diminished responcabilitys due to being drunk.. and arrogant but serious guys chill the fuck out.if shit gets said “by accident” no need to crusify some one. unlike muslims do.

  7. Was the Mittani also drunk when he put together that slideshow, deliberately choosing an example of a suicidal player to amuse and entertain the fanfest crowd with? He condoned of the harassment when it happened. He gleefully put together a presentation to the whole world of EVE about it, and then finally at the panel performed his coup de grâce by giving out the guys in-game name and suggesting that everyone else harass him too.The Mittani is an awful person, and I’m glad he is off the CSM

  9. By reading the comments on your videos. It’s proof to me and my wife. That these guys act more like Drama Queens then even my Wife does. And she even agree’s. Hmmm they must be either closet homosexuals…. “or” emo’s who can’t handle someone with a different opinion then them, and believe that everyone should like/dress/think/talk like them..(Kinda like how Adolf Hitler did in WW2)

  10. He hasn’t done anything I haven’t seen lots of other people do before. Actually the high stakes of EVE Online and the drama that comes with that is the main reason why most people love it. It was during an official CCP event, but there CCP needs to take on some responsibility for allowing drunken players on the stage. So yes, I think CCP kind of washed their hands of it and hid behind the TOS, since they would have to ban 90% of eve players if they applied it with the same zeal to all.

  11. The Mittani asked his 1800 person alliance to harrass a person he knows is depressed – because the player said so in a mail to The Mittani referencing the players recent divorce. The Mittani asked 1800 people to harrass this person to make him kill himself. The Mittani left Iceland asap because what he did was against their laws and would have been jailed.A 30 day ban is insufficient. Permanent ban and incarceration would have been right and just.

  13. yeah he accidently made a presentation about it too? wich idiot do you want to sell that? you are just a fanboy kid, who thinks his spaceship alliance is somehow important. i hope whe you are lying on the ground someday a mob of people comes to kick you, because that is the equivalent of what this douchebag did.

  14. Mittani said a really awful thing. There were 4 shows by Alliances before Mittani’s, he went last, large quantities of alcohol were injested while waiting. Drunk person said Dumb thing. Then, upon arriving in Boston on Tuesday, apologized, sent the person 10 billion ISK, apologized privately and publicly, and resigned from his CSM position. And now people are threatening to rape his wife and kill his dog. When said victim in question accepted his apology,why are we Cyberbullying the Mittani,Now?

  15. idk who “we” is – but the people who do that sort of the thing, are the kinds of people you shouldn’t tell to go harass someone on a public stage. There’s no discretion.

  16. You’re stating ‘I have to construct silly rhetotic to make meaningless points’, that’s an assumption right there. I don’t have to do shit, but I chose to make a remark because you chose to put an unsupported generic opinion with as much passion as a religious extremist. How is such behavior unacceptable? Perhaps you haven’t followed the order of events here: Mittani was banned /after/ gaming media had it on the front pages. CCP is influenced by external parties, meaning our sandbox is in danger.

    "Mitanny", Nice pronunciation.

    Also she totally missed that thing in EVEradio where he said he doesn't feel like he was thrown under the bus anymore. She had like 3 days to straighten this shit out and she couldn't do it.

    tl;dr: Mintchip sucks for life.

  18. And they would. If you threaten physical real world violence to me in the game and I report you to CCP they will ban you. Whether you run a 1800 player alliance or not.

  19. Read point 2 of the TOS because that’s basically what he breached. They mention nothing about RL threats btw, it’s just a free pass for them to ban you without fearing a law suit. Also he didn’t threatten the guy in RL. He gave out the name of the in game character which basically happens every time someone posts chat logs with carebear tears. He did make a horrible joke about it, but that’s about it. Nobody could think he was talking serious. Also I’m not a goon, if you’re wondering.

  22. Well if he was drunk than i can understand why did this happened. But still the fact that he punished is logical. Imho ccp shouldnt let him go on stage drunk.

  23. At the Fan fest one of the other Aliance leaders discused how 3 of his acounts were bio massd for trying to get in to Jovian space. Mittens gets a 30 day ban for inciteing epople to try to make a guy comitd suicid and his main defence is that he was drunk! Thats special treatment CCP if it had been any 1 else they would have been bio! Im no goon fan but I respected mittens and I belive EVE needs antiheros like him. However this was tragic and CCP should real consider a longer ban or biomassing

    Mittani is calling for mass ganking of innocents at trade
    Hubs. Well done Mittani, prove to everyone of what a childish brat you really are!
    I say everyone should band up together and start attacking goons on sight, expose their alts and do some
    Ganking of the gankers!

      Mittani is getting served by his own doing. His own 'art of war' article described how you should demoralize and destroy your enemies by using whatever means possible, dirty or otherwise.
      I guess FUD and false rumors count too.
      I'm finding this hilarious that he is falling on his own sword now being character assasinated by the same tactics he advocated.

      He said that if he where to get 10k+ votes for the CSM this would happen. So he isnt doing this because he got banned.

        Wow, get Goons to get enough votes, then as a prize for that, start a virtual bullying campaign that they could have done anyway. What happened to the Spymaster Mittani? You know, the one that I used to respect. When did he become such a anti-social force?

    You don't know what you're talking about, as usual. The Jita siege was planned long before FanFest. It has only recently evolved into a FREE MITTANI *op*. The original intent was to celebrate the great leader's record of over 10k votes for the CSM Chair position. It's simple. If you don't know the facts, don't comment at all.

    P.S. FREE MITTANI

      But he took the opportunity to rebrand it a 'free Mittani' op? The name itself implies that he is not repentant. What if he were to call it off? Now wouldn't that be a stand up decent thing to do? But that may be too much to ask of a goon.

  28. As far as I’m concerned that’s a classic case of viral hypocrisy and everyone wants to catch that flu of course.Making fun of players that were killed IN-GAME and their whine-mails that follow is pretty common. The real scandal about this incident is that people took the “if you want to make that guy kill himself” serious

  33. In some countries promoting hatred or encouraging to abuse someone (verbally or not) with the INTENT of harming that person or making the person harm themself is a crime. A crime punished by law. 30day ban is hardly appropriate for that shit.

  35. 4:20 It would be an attempt to break the Eve economy(the game). Many others have been banished forever for such threats. After watching all of the vile Alexander Gianturco’s performances at Fanfest I believe he deserves even more punishment. Those defending him seem like sycophants and hangers on….or wannabe Goons. Like attracts like. The CSM was sketchy before him but with him on it, in any way, it would be joke.

  36. And he also broke the rule: what happens in Eve, stays in Eve. Mintchip, the real question is why oh why are there no real women on the CSM? Plus, it is interesting that in a game boasting 300,000+ players the CSM members are being elected with only 2000 to 10,000 votes. It would almost be more representative if CCP drew names out of a hat (full membership) and invited those drawn to join the CSM. Keep drawing till the council is full.

  47. I personally dont really like the guy having watched his presentation. Aside from that that behavior should be unacceptable from the head of the CSM, it reflects badly on CCP and on EVE. If hes a jerk in game I dont really care, but he has to be careful that it doesnt spill over into real life. He was obviously planning on being a jerk from his presentation, and if he knew he was presenting, he shouldnt have gotten so drunk.

  48. Why would anyone be surprised by Mittens being rude..it’s the nature of goon persona. What I want to know is WHY anyone get so upset and offended by something you KNOW is coming your way if you stick your head out in front of that massive goon wave? CCP has always been hands off for scams, scandals, and vengeful alliance destruction….they should have done what we all do…laugh, and shrug, and say “that was harsh man, pay him some isk for that one” and move on. but no we all gotta act up.

  49. Nice pet you have there. Thanks for the vids and for being a great fan of EvE, my favorite game. This thing with the M is really not my cup of tea. I don’t like him, and he specializes in not being liked, so I guess he’s got a win! As far as the substance of all this, the Goons want him so they should have him, he is not really good for the bulk of players as CSM powerbroker, so it’s better that he’s gone.
