This from twitter

"CCP_Fallout CCP Fallout
Our engineers are looking into why the EVE Online Web site and forums are super slow, FYI"

Well if it's anything like what they just served us up (Incarna)as paying customers, You know for a fact they are slowing down the forums so players get tired of trying to have their voice heard.

Don't let them WIN!!!!!!!

If they are, it is the smartest move they've made in the last few days.

Yes it looks that way. Nothing more than a simple script to cause a delay they can pass off as a technical issue.

It's an old trick. Mobile networks are renowned for using it to deter 1000's of angry posters a day. SO, they maintain the fašade of maintaining a pro active web presence, but in reality, the lag scripts inevitably deter your average Joe from posting angry comments, so they leave thinking It's their connection or the internet in general that is acting up. Thus negative feedback is avoided and the illusion is maintained!!!

CCP are resorting to dirty tricks now!

Yep. Chalk this one up next to "We are working on the Bug that prevents the Cancel Subscription button from showing up on Account Management...."

Same style.

CCP should at least be glad people are ticked and posting on the forums. At least they are still enganged in the game. When people stop posting about how mad they are then I would be worried because then they will be gone.

It's entirely possible there's just tens of thousands of ****ed off people loading the forums and posting.

So the server and forums are sitting on Gigabit connections at possibly the worlds biggest internet hub at Canary Wharf in London.

But it can't handle a little extra traffic? I vote fot the latter!

That's ok..**** them,their game and their forums. I will be sending every fart they make to all the gaming they don't have a delay.

I cannot believe how many genuinely "special people" play EVE and post on the forums
