The Battle for Caldari Prime

Suddenly, all across the world, hundreds of Eve players mysteriously call in sick.Addendum: "[ 2013.03.21 15:41:19 ] CCP Falcon > but lets just say that anyone who comes into luminaire when stuff kicks off, at some point in the future, will be freely attackable, and able to attack anyone." Count on Luminaire being either zoned for low security, or Concord being turned off.

I see CCP already sent out their men in black to make sure none of us remember that leak that happened in DUST a few weeks back.

Guess its time to quickly visit Caldari Prime to see the only high-sec Titan...before it crashes into the planet which we all know will happen.

CCP Zulu was adamant that the players would determine the outcome. I would hope that it's possible for the titan to be saved. Then they could put the map on a different planet, like in the Asakai system.

I hope someone runs some caracal fleets- they are useful enough to use, but cheap enough for me to have a load prepared.

Putting it in Asakai would be senseable

the past tense of "broadcast" is not broadcasted... :/

I feel as a north american timezone player with a full time job, I get screwed out of live events. I almost believe they dont do weekend or NA timezone live events due to server concerns, which makes me a sad panda.

I wonder if they are going to drop the high-sec cyno jam in luminaire

From what I have seen and heard it sounds like the event might last for the better part of the day. So even us non UTC time zones may be able to catch a peice of it.

lmao why wouldn't they do this on Saturday, when a considerable chunk of their playerbase won't be working?
Avatar
Probably because they don't want to be working either. heh.

Ha, well, I'll miss low-sec in high-sec.

No one cares about your great war faggot

And CCP gives gallente militia another boost. No surprises there but I wonder how many people will keep pretending that CCP is not biased in regards to FW. Oh and i'm sure we will have the usual argument in response to this which is "Lol, who cares for occupancy! It's more important to have fun".

CCP recently put out a new Dev Blog regarding the Battle for Caldari Prime. This is scheduled to happen on Friday afternoon (UTC time) and promises to be a Live Event turned up to eleven. TheMittani.com participated in a conference call where Arnar Gylfason, CCP Zulu, gave a small presentation of the event.

Up until now, the Live Events team had focused on catering to essentially the RP community. However, with the Battle for Caldari Prime, they aim to expand them to the whole player base. Unlike other Live Events, which are usually only advertised on a few RP channels or to Twitter, this has been broadcast to the whole EVE player base a day and a half in advance.

The Uprising storyline has been designed to shake things up, politically speaking, as well as to introduce DUST 514 mercenaries into the lore of New Eden. The Battle for Caldari Prime will expand on this as DUST mercs fight on the ground and capsuleers fight simultaneously in the Luminaire system in the same event. Unlike past Live Events, Gylfason was adamant that the players would determine the outcome of the Battle for Caldari Prime.

CCP has a lot riding on this event. This will be a way to showcase the link between DUST 514 and Eve Online—that the two games interact with each other, not just are set in the same universe. They are expecting a big turnout, with levels in the system somewhat similar to the Asakai battle. Taking a lesson from Asakai, the server node will be reinforced. Expect CCP to do everything they can to ensure server stability and playability.

CCP will also be live streaming the event on their Twich.tv channel. Expect TheMittani.com to be covering the event live, as well.
