Yup it was banned in favor of the Monoclegeddon.

I have a list of 12 monocle wearers who I've confirmed owned them, not just some people who say they own it but people who actively wear them. And I am willing to sell them to you for a price, which will get you ahead of the game on this event.

lol.. it wouldn't suprise me if it gets that bad actually, im just really suprised they've banned it, i dont understand why, its pvp, and its a special event to just spice things up a bit, if your a dummy flying a mining ship at that time then it was your own fault as there is notice on the event absolutely everywhere

edit: no no dont need any of that crap, i was just curious if it was actually banned, or just saying that to kill monocle owners instead

The event itself wasn't banned. It's organizer, Helicity Boson, was.

They're being silly. Hulkageddon wasn't banned, Helicity Boson was banned, the one who started hulkageddon.

And why was Helicity Boson banned exactly?

Apparently went beyond the line between "curse somebody over the internet" and "threaten somebody in real life" with CCP Soundwave, IIRC.

As I understand it the words "die" "fire" and "too good for you", all in one sentence, might have something to do with it......

Hulkageddon is absolutety NOT Banned. Somebody mention it's organiser was banned in a (deliberately?) badly worded sentence, and the pitchforks and chinese whispers sprang into life the way they do about absolutely everything at the moment.

And the ban was for "die, fire, too good for you" etc... in association with a dev's real name.

With an excuse.

You may see tons of people saying each other to DIAF or GTFO 100000 times on the forum with no harm.

Now, tell the same someone to DIAF when the someone is in a position of power and when the same someone has all to gain at removing you. Suddenly, the EULA is enforced and permanently so.

Telling someone to die in a fire is fine (happens all the time) but telling them dying in a fire is too quick to be considered satisfactory is apparently crossing some sort of line.

Oh yes, I could even understand a 90 days ban for this.
But permanent, and "because it's a RL treat"? Come on, how realistic is to see someone stating garbage on a forum and then flying to Iceland to put the garbage into practice?

The ban, coming from the same people that talk about $1000 pants, gold ammo, and "We have no plans".

The ban had more to do with residual butthurt from Helicity leaking the newsletter I'm sure.

If I said hypothetically to my corp directors, "Guys we should move from Period Basis to Syndicate (lol), but don't tell the membership because they will burn us at the stake"
And a corpie found out and said, "Cancel Align NOW, burning on a stake is too good for you"
That would be considered a death threat by CCP.

Quite frankly people are waaaay too aggressive, arrogant and flat out rude just because they hide behind the anonymity of the interwebz. It's not hard to be even mildly polite. Moar permabans pls.

Seriously though - if you think this is an acceptable way to converse with a complete stranger, then you may want to reset your opinion of 'acceptable'. I believe the term is 'normalisation of deviance'. It isn't acceptable. Not even close. And let's not try to debate whether it was a 'real life threat' or not. It's just plain wrong.

Can we all agree it is not what you know but who you know. I think this applies to the fact that, it is not what you say, but who you say it to? You don't trash talk in actively monitored channels. And you don't **** off the mods... Least we all need reminded of the old counter strike server days.

I have been playing MMO's since EQ was big. And have yet to ever have my account suspended or banned for breaking a eula or trash talking. Watch what you say, or at least who you say it to.

P.S. I have no sympathy for stupidity.

Because it was directed at somebody's REAL NAME.

Big difference between "all CCP devs should go kill themselves for this fail patch" and "You, John Smith, are going to get a knife in the back if I ever find you"

Totally unwarranted ban.

Helicity was a pillar of the community and was respected by all.

I see nothing wrong here. This is totally normal human behaviour when dealing with another person. I speak like this to people all the time and they respect my opinions.

So, not that i'm a voodoo guy, but I read about it once on Wikipedia.... and watched Gillgans Islanda a lot....

so if I curse someone and tell them I have a voodoo doll , is that a real life threat?

Discussing rage bans may get your threads locked, though. Not long and his name will be censored on the forums, too, like another forum member who pointed out CCPs internal problems.

Because it's not the conversation replying to the ban that got him banned, is it...

For the record I wholeheartedly support Hulkageddon, Monoclegeddon, all-pilot-names-that-start-with-x-ageddon and every single sandbox "wtf" moment in EVE, but no matter how much you put in to the game at the end of the day there is a line, he crossed it, he got banned.

If you ask me he did everyone (including CCP) a favor. The community/CCP relationship has taken a serious dip since around the period of Apocrypha. Remember when we used to let them toot their own horn without heckling them (too badly)? It's past time for a come to Jesus meeting.
