Previously, in Iceland, CCP faced tough questions.
One thing became clear, it is time for an Aiko statue.
This is an undeniable reality.
It’s what the galaxy needs.
Meanwhile, CCP Rattati defined “new player”.
Whiteknights claim ganking is “griefing”, because new players need protection, so they can learn basic game mechanics. These carebears erroneously believe in a regional skill gradient (from Highsec, to lowsec, to nullsec). However, as Rattati stated, “You are not a new player, [just because you are] in Highsec.” According to CCP, players cease to be ‘new’ when they reach 30 days, or voluntarily leave the New Player Experience. Highsec is not the tutorial, and it is not “griefing” to engage Naval Academy graduates.
Rattati noted that CCP wasted “considerable time and resources” investigating carebear allegations. While griefers do disrupt the tutorial, gankers don’t. CCP determined that gankers and griefers are two separate groups, and ganking is explicitly allowed. Isanamo is not a mining tutorial, nor is Uedama a hauling tutorial. These are elite PvP zones, and Rattati emphasized that ganking is “fair” gameplay.
COOL FACT: When we changed our alliance name, we ensured that autist crybots would get confused. If you still think James 315 is griefing miners, then you obviously aren’t paying attention. Fortunately, CCP is not siding with antigankers, and Rattati concluded (to thunderous applause), “Gankers, you’re SAFE.”
If antigankers care about noobs, why are they defending nullsec alts?
