So it occurred to CCP Devs to run a live event in which they would undock pimping ships and duke it out against us commoners for glory and bragging rights.

CCP undocked a FoxCat backbone fleet (Navy Apocs) backed up by accompanying logistics and Tech 3 bonus ships. Word got out via Twitter and other mediums that the fleet was sighted in the Old Man Star solar system of the Essence region. DarkSide., Gorgon Empire and Gypsy Band put together a Naga fleet and hustled up to meet the roaming Devs. Here is the result of their exploits:

For those who missed it, take this as consolation; the lag was unbearable.

    You guys are idiots, CCP was streaming, and on there stream they where not lagging at all.

    Get a new computer f***tards or learn to setup your overview and brackets, as all lag goes away.

            Back in the day about 20 odd years ago, when you (Ctaman) were probably just a glint in the milkman's eye, I used to regularly shoot a 7.62mm at around 500m, with iron sights, at a target around head size. After a couple of sighting shots (max) I'd hit every time. So Bnty's post really isn't beyond the realms of possibility, especially with a scope. Just because you can't shoot for shit doesn't mean you have to go off on a rant to try and prove to everyone that you're some kind of WARRIOR MAN, who can actually SHOOT A GUN. Get a fuckin grip, and while you're at it the ability to string a good 3 word insult together… right now your insults suck as bad as your aim.

      They do?? I think you'll find that most folk outside of your alliance call you something completely different and not at all complimentary.

    Also: Gypsy band, NC., and others officially declare their subordination to TEST, accepting them to fight aside against Solar. Goodfites provided by Solar and co. result in forming coalition of 100k fags to fight Solar. Yeah, really good times to get some good fights.

      Whatever makes you sleep better. This can be effectively summarized as what goes around comes around. You teamed up with the CFC vs us and now you are all of a sudden shocked when we team up with PL against you.

      P.S Test and PL only brought < 110 people to the fight

        The power has decide to play with PL/Test before any more corps decide to leave, we get it.

        So there is NCC and N3 and HBC you are aligned with, be done with it and join CFC and stay North.

        SOLAR started fighting for Geminate vs NC. when NC. were NIP pals of CFC. When CFC attacked NC., did NC. just expect SOLAR to pull back voluntarily? Did any NC. leader contact SOLAR asking for truce and help against CFC, maybe in exchange for Geminate? No, NC. did absolutely nothing, because losing the war, blaming enemy they never contacted to call truce and then becoming part of HBC/CFC blue lagoon is more comfortable.
        Just like INIT and Raiden, who now spend most time farming or by pathetic camping NPC stations in Stain, NC. will rot from inside by becoming faggy servants of TEST/PL.

          Solar started fighting in Geminate because they needed an excuse not to help -A- vs Goonswarm and Test. Funny that you pretend to know the discussions that went on between the leaderships. Gypsy called a truce with us to fight Goonswarm. The fact that you think we would have taken all of the tech and space for ourselves had Solar joined us in the fight against Goonswarm is riddiculous at best considering we couldn't possibly hold all of that space.
          Solar had two chances to stop Goonswarm and I think it is pretty clear they have no intention of ever fighting them even if it meant letting their ally -A- burn to the ground.
