Firstly, no one is entitled to participate in any given live event. If you can make it, great, if not, c'est la vie. Secondly, this live event could have been based upon some goal that did not require conflict with capsuleers, just like some live events last year.

So yea, sux that not enough people showed up in time to properly organize this time, **** happens. Crucifying CCP over it however is childish.

I say thank you CCP for your live events, and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

Kinda sad that we all have to make a post to inform CPP that they are making their own lives events SUCK. Totally understand the need to kill local players, and ship at random. Some how there needs to be an alert across the screen, like when a system is crashing due to lag. "Concord Requests local Pilot support at 'Where ever' "YARRRR!!
It's pointless to try to make live events and NOT encourage more pilot to come. Offer some bounty or something. Rats have bountys, otherwise your WASTING peoples time!! Mad

My 2 cents(isk)
Fly Safe!

Hey guys. Thank you for speaking up. The /signed stuff is kind of unnecessary. I say that only so you know you don't have to get your whole fleet to mobilize on the forums just to be heard (not that it hurts the thread's profile...). We tend to look pretty hard for any feedback we can get on events, and have lots of CCP'ers who do so for us as well.

I'll keep it fairly simple: we try to maximize involvement, it's a goal of live events, and it appears this time we dropped the ball on involving a whole bunch of you. For that, we're sorry, and we'll be looking to improve in the future (based off the feedback we get, just like this). The documentation I have on the events in question show they lasted for at least an hour each time, so chances are you just missed the boat by a little bit. Completely unintentional at our end, and something that can happen with a shorter event.

Events run for only a certain duration because of many things; how much time the event runner has available (a minimum of an hour), the event has a specific time limit, or because the system is getting overpopulated and we are concerned about impacting performance.

Often in the busy state of running an event, we might not be able to notice that a fleet is forming, particularly if they don't announce it anywhere and rally off-grid or in another system. We'll do what we can to be more aware of gathering fleets, but I have to ask that you guys help us out here too and make it known if more people are inbound. Based on that information, we can often extend the event.

And we'll try run some longer "pew pew" events too. Smile

Thank you for the quick and in depth reply... I was in the actual system at time of spawning and it was upon us before we knew what was happening. If there were some kind of notes that one could have to understand the objective of the Sansha forces maybe we could prepare some return RP. I suppose even posting up something along the lines of "Calling out all available Capsuleers, We have an incursion of [Enter Name] To our solar system, expecting reinforcements with an ETA of 15 minutes... Hold them off as till backup can arrive"

Just something off the top of my head, but if I find myself in another system when one spawns I'll try and play along. Even if it's just to let the organizers know we're mobilizing the fleet.

I also think maybe for even the shorter events a little notice ahead of time could be given, just something in the constellation chat. Just to give more of us a heads up, so the correct channels get the information sooner.

For the way the Role play is ment to work, Any advanced notice kind of defeats the opject of the role play. How can it be a supirse attack by the Nation if they tell you it's comming. I Myself think it would just be better to have an uderstanding that any "Live Events" from now on should last 2 hours or untill Capsulers fleet dies in a ball of flames or the defeat of the Nation invasion. 2 Hours may seem a long time for a GM to sit about and try and role play. I Get that. Just tell him to kill more Factions ships to keep him happy ;-) I understand that GM's like to play also. But as he is on the pay role (I am only guessing here) I Don't think 2 hours is to much to ask. But if the Capsulers can't get a fleet toghter in that time frame, then they never will.

So if the GM can make the commitment of 2 hours. I Think everybody will be happy. If the Capsulers can't get a fleet up in that time. Tuff Capsulers Goo. It's their own lost.
