There was one other subject regarding the first weekend of CCP’s Alliance Tournament that I want to cover since it’s notable, but I don’t want to belabor it or add to the drama surrounding it.  The more I think about it, the last thing this subject needs is drama.  But it does need to be covered.  As always when I feel the EVE news sites are skipping a news story, I’m going to cover the events as I understand them as best I can, and give you my opinion on the matter.  If I’ve gotten some of my facts wrong, first please correct me in the comments and second I apologize in advance.

During the AT broadcast on the 20th, CCP played an excerpt from a third party pod-cast on the Alliance Tournament twitch.tv stream.  The pod-cast included an excerpt from a song whose lyrics and song title are simultaneously misogynistic and racist in tone.  I’m not familiar with the song and I’m not going to pretend I am, but it was in retrospect a wince-inducing moment.  Was CCP directly responsible for the song?  No!  But they erred in not fully researching something that they broadcast to thousands of EVE players and potential EVE players before broadcasting it.  You’ll notice some AT ads (including Rote Kapelle’s) include the titles and locations of their source music for this reason.  It’s partially a “fair use” copyright concern, partially a concern about hidden messages in that music.

Arydanika, a noted pod-caster (Voices from the Void) and EVE personality — who was already upset by two previous concerns with CCP, and we’ll get to those in a moment — took offense to the song being played on the AT11 stream.  “Dani”, as she is known, is both a woman and black.  While she seems to acknowledge that the song was not played deliberately by CCP, she felt it was the “last straw” driving her away from the community.

Now I’ve crossed paths with Dani a number of times during her time in New Eden.  I’m pretty sure I first encountered her in the incursion community two years ago (though she wouldn’t have known who I was, since I kept my identity in incursion fleets a secret).  And over the last year, I’ve made a concerted effort to listen to more pod-casts, including Voices.  However, my first opportunity to work with her directly was as a Syndicate Competitive League commentator a few months ago.  In that, I found her an absolutely fantastic resource to the EVE community: professional, charming, quick-witted, and funny.  During SCL, she was an absolute sweetheart and a joy to work with.  She’s done a tremendous amount of work to benefit the community, including one resource I take advantage of myself on a daily basis, a Skype channel used by EVE pod-casters and visitors like myself.  You’ll gather I’m a huge fan of Dani’s.

Arthur: God uses people like you, Lancelot. Because your heart is open. You hold nothing back. You give all of yourself.
Lancelot: If you knew me better, you would not say such things.
Arthur: I take the good with the bad, together. I can’t love people in slices.

But let me also be frank.  Dani is my opposite in two respects.  I am incredibly thick-skinned.  Dani is… ummmm… not.  And my favorite aphorism about competition is to beat your competition by being better.  Dani’s philosophy is… ummmm… different from that.

I’ve encountered these aspects of her personality from time to time over the years as well.  That Skype channel I mentioned?  Its history is checkered to say the least.  Dani’s reaction to CCP Mintchip being hired has ridden “The lady doth protest too much, methinks” line pretty hard.  And Dani generally responds very poorly to any perceived slights on her gender or race, which is kind of ironic considering that she’s a former Goon (yes, I’ve gently teased her about this once).  It’s probably fair to say that when Dani’s site wasn’t picked up by CCP for the new year as a Community Fansite, she was kind of looking for the exit.

Now like Arthur in First Knight, I’m realistic about people.  I have my flaws — more than the average person, I assure you — and so does everyone… including all of my favorite people in EVE Online.  Like Arthur, I can’t love people in slices.  I take the good with the bad, and as I said, I’m a big fan of Dani’s… ultimately despite these aspects of her personality.  We’re all human.  We have our good and bad points.

Anyway, when this last straw happened, Dani took the opportunity to shut down her EVE Online accounts and announce on Twitter that she was shutting down her pod-cast as well, a more or less classic rage-quit.  OK, it’s understandable, and we’ve all lost faith with EVE Online from time to time.  If you haven’t, you just haven’t been playing this game long enough yet.  And losing a voice in the community obviously hurts, and I mourn them every time this happens.  But then the next day, Dani wrote a longer announcement of her departure on the blog associated with Voices.  Go give it a read.  I’ll wait.

Um.  Ouch!  Yeah, that’s pretty harsh.

Meanwhile, CCP employees that heard about Dani’s departure were upset about it, and upset with the conditions that caused it.  CCP Rise almost immediately sought Dani out and apologized to her, and now according to Dani’s blog CCP Manifest has as well.(1)  Manifest is pretty high up the food chain in CCP (he’s ultimately in charge of both Public and Press Relations as well as social media), so him getting involved in this situation shows clearly that CCP was and is taking the issue seriously.  But by that time, Dani had already ripped into Mintchip pretty hard.  That caused Manifest to withdraw what was obviously an extended olive branch.  It’s a doubly sad situation because the proverbial straw here wasn’t something CCP did on purpose.

And that’s where we are today.  Dani’s official quit date is apparently August 7, and in the meantime, this situation is being discussed on the other pod-casts and on EVE Radio.  So now you’re caught up.  Again, if I don’t have my facts straight in some respect, someone please feel free to correct them in comments.

(1) Another person who I am a big fan of but who also has his faults, mostly the fact that he apparently can’t resist trolling me… which given how gosh-darned earnest he looks in real life makes it hard to tell when he’s trolling me…  😉

  4. I just do not know

    I have heard about this Dani person, in fact I am sure I have even been in the same alliance at one point, but that one comment about Mintchip shows why one should look at her going and say good bye and close the door behind you. There are issues in terms of Mintchip, mine are that after listening to her on YouTube it was evident that a lot of the time she did not know what she was talking about. In terms of the pictures and sex related accusations I would bet that the majority of that is male fantasy on over drive, and to repeat that like that shows that Dani is not of the maturity to be at a high level in the Eve community.
    If you are at a senior level in any entity showing public respect is a must, that is why being a pleb l can splerge to my hearts content at anyone I have contempt for and I do, but if Dani wanted to operate in that area you have to learn not to through stones, some come straight back at you.

      That is the funny thing with quantity and quality, sometimes less is more.

      From what i have read, she didn’t say anything about CCP mintchip that has not been said a million times before, she just picked wrong time and place to say it.

      I don’t really think Dani wanted to promote anything other then herself, couldn’t care left if she left eve.

      In the interest of accuracy, when/where did she call Mintchip a whore? Is there a record of it? I’m not doubting you are correct, but I like to be sure of my facts before forming an opinion.

      1. GrouchyOldGamer

        From her blog when she drones about Mintchip:

        “The promotion of a woman who clearly and publicly stated she hates the community at large and has been rumored to garner material goods, publicity of her work and in-game items in exchange for sexual favors.”

        She then goes on to say about herself:

        ” I’m tired of my melanin levels and chromosome arrangement being a constant problem and a source of hatred.”

        As I understand it when Mintchip said she hated the Eve community she claimed she was specifically aimed at people who targeted her because she was a women not the community in general. True or not that’s what she has said.

        I’ve listened to Dani’s stuff and enjoyed it, I’ve got great respect for everyone who creates blogs, podcasts, tools etc that allow me to enjoy the game I love more.

        However; this appears to be the epitome hypocrisy. You can’t claim sexism is a problem in Eve and then target another women by repeating ‘rumours’ she trades money for sex and expect anyone to have any sympathy for you.

        To be fair you could sum up her entire Internet flounce as ‘don’t you know how important I am?’

          Ah OK. Thanks for the clarification. I admit to just skimming through her post. Oddly enough “sexual favors” didn’t stand out to me but “chromosome arrangement” did. I might go see a doctor about that.

          I think you nail it with: “this appears to be the epitome [of] hypocrisy”. Spot on after having read it through properly now.

          I’m amazed that she believes that all her “work [she has] done in the spotlight and behind the scenes of their game” should give her a free pass to assert that a CCP employee is a whore. To then say “That is the kind of company CCP Games is”, implying it is BAD for them to not reward people for slandering their employees is truly confounding to me.

          CCP sticking up for their employees makes them a good company in my book.

    people. I do not belong here and the resounding voice seconding that

    To Dani:

    Typical sociopathic responses for the most part here I see. Bottom line, while CCP may not entirely condone misogyny, racism, and overall hatred, they certainly turn a blind eye to it. CCP knows that their game attracts a far greater percentage of sociopaths than other games, and clearly due to the construct of the game, retains them.

    It is one thing to shoot cops in a game like Grand Theft Auto, knowing they are just pixels, and say “I am not like that in real life”. It is quite another thing to attack a human being (on a personal level, not their in-game ship) using the mechanisms that CCP provides in game and out of game, and yet say “yeah, I am an sick fuck to other people in game, but am a sweetheart in real life.”

    And fuck all you pussies afraid to say “bitch” because it can be a mysoginistic word. Most times it isn’t. But in this case the word is straight up proper. Fucking bitch.

      So she’s black, a women, taking offense at something that no one even noticed and accusing another women of sleeping her way into the job. Sound like a classic case of CBS or Crazy Bitch Syndrome, common side effects are: thinking the world revolves around you, making baseless accusations that someone superior to you traded sexual favors to surpass you and having a sandy vajayjay and starting shit for no reason to fell important. Sounds like she has a pretty serious case of it too.

      I would first like to say that I’m simply responding to your post and do not support, condone, or verify the information following.

      Back in the day when Garmon (a rich, popular EVE PvP’er) and Mintchip became close, Garmon fell in love with Mintchip and reportedly gave her an enormous sum of isk in a drunken gesture one night.

      Also, when Mintchip was hired, a picture of a topless girl that looked remarkably like Mintchip, looking like it was taken from the same quality camera, and containing background items like a specific portrait that can be seen both in the picture and the broadcasts can be seen.

      There were also rumors of her putting up wishlists and such on her youtube account hoping fans would buy and send her things, although I have never seen this wishlist.

      NONE OF THIS INFORMATION IS VERIFIED, and the photo could’ve been photoshopped, the story of Garmon could be horribly skewed considering I heard it through the grapevine, and I have NEVER seen this wishlist. HOWEVER, in response to your post, I thought I would answer as to what some of the ALLEGATIONS (no proof) have been made against Mintchip

        I say well done. If a dude dismantles and steals the wallet of an entire alliance he’s a badass but Mintchip rinses Garmon of a few bill and she’s a whore who shouldn’t ever have been offered her job? What it shows is not that the trolls/12 year olds/sexually repulsive autists hate women particularly, but that they definitely feel deeply threatened by them, so much that you have to tear a few pieces out of them just so they don’t get too up themselves, right? That’s pretty fucking weak bro’s.

        It’s embarrassing to see all the abuse that gets thrown around but the one thing that really gets me passionately pissed off is the racist stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a complete pussy and when someone complained with an article on this site saying that the term “rapecage” should be banned I laughed my fucking tits off, but when someone drops the n-bomb it it doesn’t just effect it’s target but also anyone else who see’s that kind of language as completely inappropriate and hateful.

        We’ve had 10 years with no censorship or filtering of any kind and it’s been good while it lasted but I think we need to reconsider how appropriate it is to find the ugliest comments possible on Earth in a computer game. My little cousin wanted to play Eve and I had to tell him I’d stopped playing and that it was a shit game anyway just so that he wouldn’t be exposed to all that gets posted in local. I would of been fun to train up my cuz into a little pvp monster but he’s far too young to be looking at what gets linked daily. I don’t want a huge wave of censorship, but a small filter to all channels would hopefully show that certain types of language are at least not flat out encouraged by CCP and as a company they take some of the responsibility of what gets types/posted in their game channels.

        The whole Garmon thing was an elaborate hoax which started when a mate of Garmon photoshopped a screenshot of the wallet transaction. Both Mintschip and Garmon ran with it for some time.

        The topless photo I don’t know about. I have never seen any photos of the sort, but I have seen a thread on EVE-O where something like that was linked but got removed.

        The wishlist thing is absolutely true. I have seen the list but she since removed the link from her youtube account. I guess she had to because it could be interpreted as trying to bribe a CCP employee if someone bought her stuff.

        Whether she’s a golddigger or not, Mintchip ~is~ terrible, and I happen to know that she makes more EVE playing women mad, not just Arydanika. I guess the other gals are a bit more mature about it.

    If the sing was about the enslaving of black women then it fits in perfectly with ccps mindset.

    But really, being an affluent, healthy, white, male ain’t so easy, with all the tax paying and gas prices and stuff.

    Plus all that rap music speaks so highly of white males, it truly is shocking that a song would say such things about black women.

When things go shitty and they want to break up, they need to wait their boyfriend to do something bad that they can break up. I have seen this behavior now multiple times. Actually now that I think it, some men do that also.

  33. Wtf?

    Wow, just read her blog about this and went through the comments here. Dani is obviously a self-entitled whiner, I think EVE will be truly better off without you. And if you really think people don’t like you because of your “melanin levels and chromosome arrangement” you are deluded as well. After reading but a fraction of your blog I already don’t like you and it has nothing to do with your phenotype, you are just rude, just plain rude.

    Dani – first clue to succeeding in a male dominant environment is to stop bashing the few females around you. Help each other for chrisake, it’s one of the few things guys do right is stick together, as ugly as that gets sometimes.

    Good thing they didn’t play this song, otherwise the majority of EVE players might unsub…

    I’m ginger and I wear glasses. I can assure you that should such a song ever come to light that casts gingers in a bad light I will not get upset; rather I will join in.

    Eve’s better off without feminist idiots fucking shit up with political correctness. Don’t get me wrong, I’m against racism and stuff like that – but it was a song, ffs. But no, she needs to lord it over us with her gender AND her colour.

    That’s pretty sexist in itself, using her gender to get one up on everyone else…

    After reading that blog, I decided I don’t like the person who posted it.

    I don’t like them because they are a self important, ranting loon, and eve will be a better place without them.

    I have no idea about their gender, colour, sexuality, religion, shoe size or hair colour. She’s a dick, who happens to be a black woman. So effing what?

      Back when Arydanika was in SMA, if something didn’t go the way she wanted it, she made the person out to be a prick, began rumors behind their backs, and would suck up to the first person she could find in alliance leadership.

    Lol, another self-important hormonal chick putting “racism” in everything.

    das denken sogar Männer, die sonst ganz okay sind.
    Da sieht man mal, wie weit wir noch entfernt sind
    von einem fairen Umgang miteinander…”

    Campino, i bet you play EvE.

    “Oh no, I am offended by this song! That means that EVERYONE HATES ME BECAUSE OF MY RACE AND COLOR!”

    Actually, everyone just hates you because you’re an overly sensitive piece of shit. The only thing wrong with your skin is it’s thickness, or lack thereof.

    wait, that song is from Dr.Dre and Snoopdog(Snooplion) who are black, so are they now racists? probably the answer is “no” because they are black so they are allowed to use the N-word afaik. but what if the ppl from the 3rd party podcast who played it or made the video/podcast are also black and they haven´t even thought about it as being racist, and what if the guy at ccp who included the video/podcast into the stream is also black and also didnt felt offended because of knowing the song and the artists.

    in that case nothing racist happened and we can all go pewpew and be happy that this woman ragequit eve.

    damn, i hate people who scream fire when nothing burns.
