And once again the pack of lions has arrived at the biggest waterhole around, prepared to pick of the weak and the sick.As a highsec resident, I would love to think that my fellow carebears have finally wisened up, but their behaviour gives me few reasons to believe in this.

If people play Eve and don't know about Burn Jita, do they actually play Eve? And will anyone hear them if they make a sound?

I for one, am looking forward to the inevitable ragequit posts by nerds losing their overstuffed haulers.
Avatar
Hehe, kinda asking for an "ignore Jita" counter event where all of highsec enjoy a BBQ with friends and don't log in. Nerds orbiting Jita 4-4 with nothing but their dick for entertainment then xD. Wont happen but picturing it alone makes me laugh :).

Nobody even hears them cry on the forums.

I will look forward to this. But I look forward to the inevitable tears more.

The feels when your marauder training finishes a day before burn jita.

So not this past weekend, not fanfest and not after fanfest. I was wondering when it was going to be. Not really.

If you're on the forums you know about it..As I highsec carebear, if you don't know about Burn Jita, you deserve to die, because you are so un-engaged with the Multiplayer aspect that it's a public service for you to be gone.. There are Bots that know about Burn Jita.. Bots that are more engaged than they are :p

I sense a lack of empathy from Homophobic John and Sentinel. Will no one think of the new 2007 characters?

OMG YOU NOOOOOBS! DIDN'T YOU GET THE NEWS? GG IS GONNA DESTROY YOU ALL!!!#rekt #Goblin4president #Nowhaz80members #40ofthemarefutureawoxers #ihatemyselfforusinghashtagsObviously joking :P Have funs lads and break some records!
Avatar
Oh i think of them every day. And my 1400s think of them as well. Though aside from tormenting them and reminding them that Eve isnt all fun and missions, one key thing to remember is that Burn Jita is all about giving those guys that moment in the spotlight. This is all for them. To help them understand what they should do better, and what they did wrong.
Avatar
1400s are SUCH a LOVELY way of explaining such things to people...Our JF service has already shut down for now, until we're certain that Jita is once again safe(ish) to travel to. I hope you will beat last year's record, I have stuff to sell.

Whore Killmails 3, I am looking forward to this.

Only problem is, Boat shows up for fights. Gevlon doesn't.

I'm guessing the main response will be "Whats burn jita?"
Avatar
And in the previous year, many had forgotten the tears and the cries of the carebears of high security space.Thusly, the developers had told the idiots, "They had planned this for the last year, where were you last year?"And the carebears replied, "We were in Freighters, transports, and industrials. We had our autopilots safely moving us to our destination. We did no wrong. It is your fault, now reimburse my losses and apologize before i complain again."Then the developers proclaimed, "Ho! Carebears! Ye who sit upon your high horse! We hath done no harm. We programmed security to have flaws. You lost shit last year and the year before! Why reimburse when you have an entire year to prepare and NOT LOG IN. It is you, my dear carebears that shalt reimburse yourselves! For your fears are amusing, your tears are delicious, and your wails shalt forever fall upon deaf ears.Now, LET THE SMITING BEGIN!"

I'd like Mittens read that...

Burn Jita has always been about going after the uninformed. Anyone that you could possibly reach with any kind of counter-event thing is already aware of Burn Jita, and will be avoiding it anyway.

Avoiding it? Or trying to convince everybody else that now is the time for them to take that over-stuffed freighter to Jita.

If you are a suicide ganker and you would like to get your alliance involved with Burn Jita, just let me know and we'll find something fun for you to do.
Avatar
I have GSF only alliance contracts for tags.

Which can only be met by the notion that they simply refuse to brows the forums from time to time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...That simulates my responce correctly.

I will be live streaming THE ENTIRE TIME I PLAY BURN JITA. With updates!

I have some carebear alts that have too much sec status. It's all good.

If those in CCP who agree with Ripard and his ilk get their way, there may not be a BJ4. Erm, Burn Jita 4.
Avatar
As an ex ceo a standard question when talking to people who were interested in joining my little empire corp was - what Eve related sites do you follow?, another was Do you read the Dev blogs posted on the Eve website? Have you ever used the test server?.I can pretty much say if the answer was no to the first question, the answer would be no to the other two. There is such a high degree of disengagement that people don't know about external sites/forums and dev blogs without the splash screen message, and even then it comes down to having corp members/officers informing players, new and old what to read and try to plan for the future as well as possible.Whilst not everyone enjoys reading forums Eve is something that exists outside of the client which can enrich experiences when actually logging in. I say as an unsubbed pilot.

Instead he compares successfully social people to Ted Bundy and crows about how he did a bunch of suicide ganking.
Avatar
If you're a freighter driver and you're oblivious to Burn Jita, you frankly deserve everything you get.
Avatar
how can i be blued to pick up things that are dropped?
Avatar
I thought he was comparing you to Ted Bundy though
Avatar
My freighter bpc's have jumped 20 mill each in the last 30 days. Good times..as for jf's you can still jump from jita with out to much trouble, just dont head to jita
Avatar
april 35th? what planet do you live on?
Avatar
He compared several people to Ted Bundy, namely mynnna, Mittens, and myself.Good company to keep, I suppose.
Avatar
Verily, the care bears then did respond, "Enjoy the soup line, bitches. You're pissing us off enough to actually wait for Star Citizen. FOAD." And there was mass unsubbing, and much gnashing of teeth by CCP XHagen, who cried, "Wait! I'll hire more whores like Mint chip!" And lo, eventually there were no ships or bullets for the socially maladroit to buy.
Avatar
I'm unsubscribing unless they give me a button that tells me I'm the best every time I push it. Don't tell me how to play.
Avatar
Because goons don't run several alts who build ships, right? That's all done be entitled carebears that quit any time their grinding gets interrupted?
Avatar
Reminds me of the Max Damage Campaign....=D

I have two monitors for this explicit purpose.

Letting you in on a secret, friend: we're suicide ganking the 4-4 station this time. You may want to evac.

Mommy dearest taught me how to profane in the best fashion.

With all the press out on this event, I think you should respond to all questions of "What just happened?" or "What is going on?", with "Didn't you get the memo?" or "You didn't get the memo?"

Does anyone else feel like this event is held just so irrelevant people can feel relevant again?

This is going to be real fun... hopefully carebears are going to fight us this time

A great service to both the EVE community and those communities outside of EVE who wish they were as hardcore as EVE.

I would just like to thank Marmite for the funniest banner ad I've seen on TMC this week: 'Burn Jita 3: Cancelled - Send Marmite 100B Isk'.I love the irony.

Link? Because it sounds awkward and terrible.

Warr Akini has announced the CFC's third Burn Jita event will take place from downtime on Friday April 25th to downtime on Monday April 28th. Following the earlier confirmation that the event would be happening again this year, the following information was published on goonfleet.com, confirming the date and providing additional details:

 

Burn Jita 2014 - April 25-28

 

Burn Jita 1 (2012) destruction: 518b (results thread)

Burn Jita 2 (2013) destruction: 575b+ (results thread)

Burn Jita 2014 destruction: HOLY FUCK A LOT ITS COMING ITS HAPPENING

The Fuck Goddamnit Yes It's Happening Call Your Fucking Mother I HOPE YOU PREPPED YOUR SEC STATUS

  • Who: The entire fucking CFC (this is a headliner event - one that will have serious repercussions on your perception by the entire EVE community)
  • Time: Downtime Apr 25 to downtime Apr 28 (extension may happen, may not, deal with it get dicks)
  • Place: Jita jita jita jita jita(and pod ganking in Perimeter)
  • Formup: Jita 7-2 - this is where all ganking fleets will originate
  • DPS Ships:  T1 Catalysts and Thrashers will be our bread and butter (provided), followed by Taloses, Brutix, Tornadoes
  • Support Ships: Bumpers (Mach/Typhoon), freighters, scanners (t1 frig is OK), loot scavengers equipped with MTUs for the inevitably large number of guns that will drop
  • Reimbursement: None so far - will speak to Atrum re: tags and ship reimbursement
  • FCs (RSVP WITH ME SO I KNOW YOU ARE COMING): Warr Akini, Powers Sa, Hemimaori, Distracted, Korporaal Paling, Chinicata Shihari (Sunday only), Zaand Schtvaal, KillaPino, other Ministry FCs, and whoever we can scare up from the regular FC crowd (DBRB will be running anti-wardec fleets, what a hero)
  • Targets (in order of priority): Jump Freighters > Freighters > Orcas > expensive Battleships > else (DO NOT POD IF YOU WANT TO GANK REAL SHIT OVER THE WEEKEND)

Preparing for Burn Jita 2014

Read the preperation thread - it's been up for nearly two weeks.

Otherwise, here's the short-list:

  • Fix your sec status - AFKtar or rat or whore on rats in anoms every 5min or whatever. We don't advise goonrushing tags - cost to get from -10 to 0 is something like 300-350m as of this post's writing.
  • Get your medclone set to Jita 7-2. You will get podded
  • Train for an alphaclone catalyst or thrasher (skillplan in prep thread) at least
  • Get instadock and instaundock bookmarks on Jita 7-2 - important because if you warp to 0 to 7-2, you will land at 500m+ and get podded.
  • Get a freighter overview - I am lazy about releasing mine
  • Stock ships you will want/need to gank with, but Miniluv will provide t1/meta0 catalysts and thrashers for free. All hail space communism
  • Get cheap implants - surgical strike 1%-3% and whatever turret you'll be using 1-3% are fine choices.

Fits and (GSF) Reimbursement

GSF Reimbursment Spreadsheet

Basic ganking fits can be found in the preperation thread - Atrum will be posting a Reimbursement thread shortly whereby you may post for, but intended reimbursement amounts are listed in the linked spreadsheet above. In short, here are the reimbursement numbers (GSF ONLY):

  • T2 Brutix: 60m
  • T2 Talos: 75m
  • T1 Artillery Tornado: 75m
  • T2 Catalyst or Thrasher: 10m
  • Smartbombing battleship: ha ha ha you guys were fucking terrible last year no reimbursement get a podding thrasher and do it for cheap (fyi a smartbombing cruiser can volley pods)

Atrum will no doubt want you to post for reimbursement as he asked you to do last year - but he will make his own post shortly (I will edit this OP once that happens).

Call for FCs

In the first year of Burn Jita, several Goons and Goon-friends rose to minor stardom leading ganking and anti-wardec fleets. Well, except for Michael Bolton III, who we found out very quickly was a giant shitlord. I mean, wow. Shut the fuck up, man.

Anyway, the Ministry has a good base of gank-educated FCs to work from, but we always want more cat-herders (literally herding cats), whether it be for ganking or killing wardecs (and there will be many, many stupid targets - DBRB wiped the fucking floor with wardecs both years iirc). If you have any questions or want to volunteer, :getin: and talk to me.

Answers to Questions and Shit
 
Q: Can I bring other ships or personal ships?
A: You are always welcome to bring whatever, except for on the kickoff gank, which will be a rookie ship only gank (and which was hilarious last year). If there is no reimbursement in place for it, however, you will not get reimbursed.

Q: How do I get sec increase?

A: Kill a bountied rat (anomaly, belt, whatever) or 'be on the killmail' of one at least once every 5min. AFKtaring will do fine.

Q: Will there be many coordinated fleets?

A: We expect to have one anti-wardec fleet led by some scrublord "real" FC at least, then between 1-3 gank fleets running at any one time, plus uncoordinated podgankers and the like.

Q: How can I help without ganking? (For FCON/Li3/other can't-gank shitlords)

A: Bring haulers to scoop dropped mods and such. Mobile Tractor Units will nicely scoop friendly dead wrecks, which you can pick up and roll out with to the nearest station. Or, bump freighters so they're immobilized while we get our fleet (or just for harassment)! See bumping fits.

Q: How does my neutral alt get in fleet?

A: Have neutral alt linked in fleet, ask for fleet invite in Mumble/wherever, bam.

Q: How do I participate if I'm already below -5?

A: Grab a bunch of podding thrashers and go podding shit (Jita gate on Perimeter a great place, especially in EUTZ). Make sure you have an instawarp from your station so you don't get grabbed by faction po.

Q: How do I get free gankship?

A: Be in fleet - a Minister will have access to the free Catalyst/Thrasher (t1) stash and will be handing some out. We do advise you to bring your own materials if you really really want. Allies will also receive free ships, because fuck you we like our allies except FA/SMA/FCON/Li3, basically everyone but Fweddit.
