EN24, your invitation somehow got "lost" along all the hate mail

Many of our readers have been questioning why we haven't covered the much touted CCP press conference, truth is that we weren't informed of it, and we were like cool, we got so much **** to write about and other sites has been covering it.

But then I find this in my facebooks:

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

- Eve News24 so far haven't received an invitation, neither we were aware that the whole thing was going to be handled over "skype", so there is some bull**** thrown on the facebooks tubes.

- We won't cover the Press conference Q/A grounded on two facts:

- Since we weren't invited, we deducted that it wasn't in CCP's best interests to have EN24 covering the PR op despite being the third biggest Eve Online news site and the third Biggest eve related site after Eve-Kill.net and Dotlan.

- Secondly, Eve News24 features mostly "original content", the coverage of this has been handled by "professional news sites"


Is it our desire to state that we wish the success of CCP's "vision" for the Eve Online, Dust and WoD project as long as it doesn't affects the integrity of the game, we believe that this is the position shared by the large majority of the players.

Finally we would like to state that Internet Spaceships are Serious Business. YARRRR!!Shocked

As editor in chief surely deduced is the correct word to use there and not deducted.

Oh and your annoying thread title and subsequent "waaah" make you look like a tit. Stop it.

Well to be fair Riv only posted about it, hardly makes him 'bad', not that any sane person would read EN24 ;) CCP will probably do something about Mittani showing the newsletter though, if they take his "I saw the newsletter showed it to some people before the leak, NDA only applies to CSM stuff anyway" remark serious

It is quite true; skewed, biased, incomplete and aimed at lower IQs.

We'd been in contact with General Windypops, who had accepted, and who had approached us on behalf of EN24 for comment following Incarna release. He didn't reply to several Skype invites or repeated emails after the initial affirmation of his attendance.

I also hasten to add that we really wish he had shown up as we know a lot of players go there for ingame EVE news.

Fair enough as we have been in contact with CCP Abathur regading all CCP related news.

If your rag has been in contact with CCP and vice-versa, what's up with the post? Trolling for more page hits?

Next time we'll come straight to you, but as Windy was the one who approached us following the NeX stuff, seemed logical to reply to him. Did he not run it by you/did you not know he was invited?

Abathur, while undoubtedly an amazing information source, isn't a CCP employee anymore, so if you are looking to get a quote or interview or whatever with CCP, shoot me an email.

We are cool, the op is intended so CCP knows why the issue wasn't covered in detail and avoid bad faith speculation.

"Bad Faith Speculation?"

Isn't that the new codename given to the next expansion?

Hmm, well Windypops approached us on behalf of EN24 in late June... oh well.

We certainly didn't think there was bad faith or anything, just curious as to why Windy didn't show up. Understood of the coverage angle you guys want to take on it, but if you want to do a "makeup" session, just let me know.

This goes for future stuff as well. Like you said, you guys are a place EVE players go for news and opinion pieces. I will clarify in the sticky thread.

They are both ceaselessly ragged on by people who want to sound knowledgeable and hip?
