In light of recent indications of CCP's intentions with regard to the future trajectory of EVE Online a lot of people have become very annoyed. This is a wonderful thing, not because EVE players like nothing more than for other EVE players to be annoyed, but because it is only through such high emotions that people can get motivated enough to take action against unacceptable incremental changes to the environment that they value. In order to offer some small further encouragement to the political activism that is blossoming in EVE at the moment, I am offering a 10 billion isk prize fund for the most creative acts of legitimate protest that the community can muster. The prize for the most inventive and effective protest in the next 30 days will be 7.5 billion isk, with a runners-up prize of 2.5 billion. The organiser of the protest should post documentary evidence of their action here and preferably also alert me via eve-mail.

The prize fund has been lodged with Grendell and the winner will be picked by a panel of independent judges (not including myself) once the month is up. But please remember that all in-game and meta-game protests must be legal and not go against the rules of the game.

Edit - Three commas added in response to post 6.

If no one can beat complaining then complaining a lot will win. Please provide links to your complaints when you make your submission.

For what it's worth I made a little xtranormal video. Not great but I'm not ashamed of a stab in the dark if 10b are at stake. (Well, maybe a little bit Embarassed). Zinfandelgate

Here is a suggestion. Go in game. Go to the help channel, EVE Radio, and all the other channels and tell everyone to get to JITA now! To protest Incarna.

LOL! See how long before Jita crashes. :)

So get in there peoples and spread the word! Onward to Jita.

If I win, please forward the winnings to this avatar. Khira Kitamatsu - I can use the billions!

Call it the JITA FLY-IN! Come one come all! Be there and join in the biggest ingame protest ever!!!

I laughed a lot at that as well as all my friends who played Eve and many of the people who saw it on my facebook link.

I can assure you the 110 view count is inaccurate.

Yes, finally FUEL for the Seething burning hatred that is growing amongst my fellow capsuleers, let all our rage, hatreds and sheer psychomaniac tendencies be spread.

Wait, isnt this some form of meta psychology where offering money deflates the true value of the protest to the point people no longer want to as they associate the money as a reward instead of the rage itself at the ignominy?? Are you a CCP ALT ???? This article in the FINES section, to the end, shows how with proper thinking, you could reverse engineer movements to diffuse them by offering money, since offering money cheapens work that could be done by sheer act of volunteer work. I for once endorse this idea 50/50 as my work will be kept strictly in the volunteer side.

Walks out dubiously during this time of turmoil.

I wouldn't say it cheapens the work, it cheapens the type of person doing the work. To volunteer for a cause one must believe in it. While doing it for money.... well you're doing it for money. But money is power and people can do some crazy things for power. IMO you can get the same amount of motivation from outraged as from greed.

I would like to harness the power of both groups: players who want to protest anyway (for whom an additional incentive can't hurt) and the money grubbing lowlifes of the eve universe who will do anything for a buck.

If it is possible to target NPC stations. It might be kind of fun to try and blow up the Yulai VIII - Inner Circle Tribunal station ala Empyrean Age.

Follow that with an international weekend of no logging in after, of course, recording the previous two or three weekends of usage numbers throughout the day.

Then the results would be verifiable. Twitter, FB, Reddit would have to be included in postings as well.

Great competition Raw, though I think you need to pay CCP $99 for a licence to legitimize the offer.

Whats better than quitting, how about an in game angry protest.
might as well go out with a bang, I say, take a page out of the goons book and spam all of jita with millions of shuttles. Grab the biggest hauler you can, fit it with all the cargo expanding crap you can, slap a crappy gun on the high slot, and most importantly, organize so everyone does this all at the same time, then attack stuff to get concorded, boom, milions of shuttles. I say hit the stations and the gates, just have fun with this final act of rebellion. I can see it now Laughing
