FIRSTLY: This thread isn't supporting or decrying the protests, just reporting on it. Feel free to add any media information you see, screenshots, videos etc. but please use the other threads for feedback about the events.

Light Speed Interactive are reporting about the ongoing protests taking place all over New Eden right now.

I've just arrived on the scene in Rens and we've got a small protest building up. Around 400 in local and there is more protest talk in local than trade talk.

As you can see from other threads, Jita and Amarr protests are in full swing right now.

We'll have updates from Lacrime Delsole on what's going on in Jita and Amarr here soon.

Added:

We've done some interviews about the players current feelings with the protesting and are inviting others to add their opinions on this thread:

Another unconfirmed CCP leak is on News EVE 24.

PC-Gamer has picked up the story


STATUS : Protests are On-going Strongly in Jita and Amarr. Luminaire Protests have just ignited on the Caldari Prime Titan. The Gallente seem to have found something to shoot.



JITA (In Protest) : 1300 pilots (Peak @ 2150)
>>Undocked : 526 (peak @ 700)

AMARR (In Protest) : 780 pilots (Peak @ 1500)
>>Undocked : 275 (peak @ 777)

DODIXIE (Placated) : 450 (Peak @ 800)
>>Peak Undocked : 350

LUMINAIRE (In Protest) : 120 (340)
>>Undocked : 70

Mass-Protest Channel @ 617 pilots


JITA Report :

Jita has reached it's peak concurrent user limit and traffic was disabled, causing it to drop multiple times to as low as 1000 pilots, effectively bringing the Trade Hub to its knees as these Mass Protests are under way. Population seems steady at around 1500 for over 2 hours now as things start to get into the groove. The expectation is that CCP will wait for these protests to die down, but will the vigil progress for more than a few hours? The Jita Statue has been under constant assault for almost 5 hours now, going towards 6. The onslaught has not stopped, as of 23:19, and will continue well into the night at this rate.



AMARR Report :

Amarr has become the fallback for protestors as Jita is getting overwhelmed with pilots. The system has been acting steadily despite attempts to bring it down by protestors by flooding the system. The system is handling itself well as it had a drop of population to 1100 from 1500, reports are unsure if this is due to having reached the maximum limitation of the system. More than 50% of the system is undocked.

DODIXIE Report :

The Dodixie protest has all but ended, never having reached a critical mass. A few still sit in Dodixie crying against CCP's changes, but a more democratic discussion seems to be ongoing in the land of Democracy.

LUMINAIRE :
Luminaire protests engaging the Caldari Prime Titan have died down. The festivities were less intense about the protests and more about taking the energy and putting it to something potentially constructive in taking down the Titan.

MEDIA ::

Local has climbed to around 450 now. We've had a few criminal activities which have brought small numbers of Concord activity to the area. At least 2 ships have been lost.

We've almost hit 500 here in Rens now. Local is starting to fill with comments about the most recent CCP message. Things don't feel happy here.

Here is Harleen Quinzel. Live from the event!
the peoples are getting crazy here today. They made a barricade in the gates and nobody is allowed to go through.
Just about now, I almost got hit by a stone from the protesters.
They say the CCP has lied to them and after beeing caught, asked for parley. But it has more than 24 hours and they dont say anything.

The protesters are shooting and screaming:
I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!

This is History beeing made!

This is Harleen Quinzel. LIVE!

CCP Zulupark has released a Devblog, the first official response from a lead developer for EVE Online.

Unfortunately, it seems that CCP has missed the concerns about "No Non-Vanity RMT Items". Players are concerned whether CCP is simply ignoring the concerns in hopes the community will not notice or whether they have clearly shown a failure to communicate with the community on this matter. Neither speak well for the situation. We will be keeping coverage on the protests in game which have brought 2 trade hubs to a stand still for all players, and potentially a 3rd.

This just in: Reports indicates that there is above 1500 peoples at jita right now! The gates continues blocked up!
Amarr is calling reinforcements to block the gates and stop all the 1280 peoples that are currently shouting non stop!
Dodixie's citizens are above 750 at this moment and are shooting each other and self destructing to call for help.
Rens have less peoples, almost 500, but they are not quiet, they are firing torpedoes and stones to the police.
Harleen Quinzel. Live from this historical moment!

The more publicity this gets the less likely CCP will be to concede to demands or backdown.

Shot yourselves in the foot.

If they show weakness now they'll be met with incessant whining over every little thing in the future.

Dodixie is up to 750 players.

Reports are coming in that 335 pilots are undocked in system, more than half the population. Will keep updated and bring reports as they come.

Local is filled with chanting here in Rens. It's all about the microtransactions here. Nothing about Captains Quarters or the price of Monocles.

How about if 10,000 eve players protest out side CCP offices in iceland accompanied by a bunch of anti capitalist that have nothing to do with eve but get invited along (rent a mob).

The responses to the latest blog post by CCP Zulu are really racking up at a frantic pace.

The thread was started at 20:56:00 and now at 22:00 we've got over 900 replies already. That's 15 replies a minute!

Reports are coming in that Protestors from Dodixie are attempting to move to Amarr.

A call for more protestors in Rens has also come in.


The hours are getting late for many Euros, and numbers are ever so slightly declining -however the question is whether the American Time Zones will be picking up the vigil of protest well into the night.

How long will the EVE Community put this show up in what they perceive as defense of their game? How long will it take for CCP to show that they are genuine about their intentions for EVE and answer a few questions that even as a reporter I have to admit are being ignored from the EVE Community of players.

Rens has remained steady at between 480 - 500 people in local for the past few hours.

It's time for me to sign off now, but Lacrime DelSole will be reporting on the protests for as long as she can.

This is Velicia Tuoro of Light Speed Interactive, signing off.

EVE Radio Talks Announcement

Quote:
It's been a tough month for CCP.

There was uproar about the Alliance Tournament, performance issues with Incarna, outrage with the NEX store and now a leaked internal document that (on the surface) casts CCP in a very negative light.

Tonight at midnight gmt (25/06/11), Funkybacon and chums will dissect everything that has happened this month and attempt to make some sort of sense of it all. What is likely to be a landmark discussion with a lot of important views, opinions and maybe a few facts will be shared LIVE with you, the EVE Radio and EVE Online community and available on our Rewind service later.

Confirmed guests at this point include Brendan Drain from Massively although some of you may know him better as Nyphur from his ISD days. More to follow.

Be sure to long in early for what could be the most important and informative discussion of the year.

Dodixie protests are being reported in as quiet since there are no monuments as such to engage at. Protests are holding steady with 600 in local.

Protests in Dodixie have died down.

However, protests are continuing in Jita and Amarr although regressing a little bit.

The Mass-Protest channel, the primary channel for organizing the protests is down to 700 from 900 players, but that only shows that the core of the protests is still going strong.

The question is if the American Timezones will carry on this vigil into the night, and what the weekend brings. I look forward to the EVE Radio talk show this evening.
