We appreciate the feedback from everyone. After reviewing all of these very valid concerns, we were compelled to go back over the information we’d collected in this case and carefully weighed it again against the precedents set in the past. Ultimately, we felt we had no other recourse than to reverse the name change, the key factor being that during this re-investigation we learned that the KenZoku alliance was created several months before the BoB alliance leadership switched hands. That being the case, the name change request was not submitted within a timely manner, as it had been in the legacy cases we were holding up as examples.

We will be contacting the CSM for input regarding our naming policies.

Oh come on,the real reason is that they just didn't like to be called Beavers.

Congrats to GM Grimmi and CCP for making the right call after reviewing the facts.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome our latest addition to the Goonswarm Alliance, Band of Brothers Reloaded!

You'd think CCP would have looked at the age of the alliance in the first case!

This seems crazy. Why should changing the name of an alliance in circumstances like these require losing all sovereignty? Given the connection that KenZoku has to the old BoB name/new BoB Reloaded name I don't see that the usual "can't have name changes on a whim, they're an integral part..." argument has a great deal of weight either. I hope the CSM mandates easier name-changes in future.

Points to the Swarm for establishing Sov 4 on the forums.

Thats too bad. I liked the new, even worse name. I'ma still call those losers beavers though.

Aw, I liked beaver. Beavers are industrious, chubby, aquatic rodents. Who doesn't love beavers?

Still, there does have to be one set of rules for everyone, so thumbs up to CCP for this.

Posted - 2009.03.25 18:47:00 - [17]

CCP on the side of the Goons again I see.

Utterly disgraceful.

There are still a lot of people who claim their requests were refused WITHIN HOURS OF CREATING THE ALLIANCE.

However there's no sense crying over spilled milk (your old policy sucked but whatever) so here's to the new one

This is completely outrageous and unacceptable. I demand beavers.

This is RIDICULOUS. CCP's wishy-washiness and LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE PLAYERBASE simply boggles me. I demand that CCP change their name back to Band of Brother Reloaded, they are a great alliance with A LONG HISTORY and deserve their name back FOR ALL THEY'VE GIVEN TO THE EVE COMMUNITY. Lady Scarlet, Dianabolic, Per Mollen -- you have my sympathies and I will fight for you every step of the way.

Congrats CCP not only on upholding the rules, but taking the time to actually research the incident when enough people voiced concern.
