You may have heard about e.g. the JC- BND- EL8- battles in the North lately.
It appears that our usual definition of "lag" has grown to something like not being able to do anything for up to 90 minutes.

Essentially what happened in the past "big" dominion fleet battles was:

Force A, was on grid of the incoming gate with roughly 300(sometimes even 100 suffice)people waiting for their enemy (Force B) to jump through.
What happens next is that Force B foolishly (pun intended) jumped into Force A.
While most of you would think that the whole system will start to lag and the grid won't load for either side, you are wrong.
What happens is that Force A is able to happily shoot and kill Force B, while the latter is rendered helpless, without a grid or the possibility to react.

While this clearly justifies calling it a bug, at least some, if not all, eve-online GMs call this a feature that results from the increased amount of players participating in large fleet battles. I, for one, have had a long but useless discussion with GM Gruber about this "issue".
While he continually repeated almost the same sentences over and over again, I was trying to explain to him why this indeed should be called a bug.
He was not cooperative. My bug report is still open, but it seems that CCP is not going to allocate more nodes/servers for 0.0 space or publicly address that they are working on a resolution for this issue.

Please CSM, address this issue in an emergency meeting, since this will affect all current 0.0 warfare and politics severely. We cannot wait 24 hours for a node to be reinforced, this is simply impossible if trying to defend your territory. This is an utmost urgent issue, we as customers are not able to address this in any matter on our own. I have tried diplomatically, but all I got in response was "there is no verifiable bug like this", while others may received slightly different answers. We were not able to proceed with our request any further and thus the assistance of the CSM is of utmost importance now.

Kind regards,


Today we had about 400 atlas+friends in y8r- taking down a WI station+ihub. We jumped in with 800 people(in groups of 300) on a 100AU spot. After 20 minutes SOLAR bombers found our bridge-in spot and bombed us, at that time we didn't even load grid.

Totally agree with the OP. Large fleet battles are impossible now.

TBH every 0.0 player should support this as we all benefit from lagfree fleet fights.

Enough is enough

^^ This

It is getting ridiculous CCP, seriously, just becuase you guys can't "verify" something on your end doesn't mean that it isn't happening on ours. Listen to your customers please, I lost 3 BS's in these fights so I know first hand that this truly is an issue.

This is a serious issue and as a paying customer am shocked if the service provider will not regonising this as a serious problem that they will need to look at or risk lossing their customers.

If this is not addressed, 0.0 is going to become invalid and I will be taking my money else where.
