Nullsec Blackout: Triglavian Inversion

Bill McDonough 2019-08-02

GALACTIC NEWS HOUR ROUNDUP: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS CRAP? EDITION

Hysteria rules as all across New Eden, as reports come in of communications systems gone completely haywire. In nullsec, Local has suddenly and mysteriously begun functioning again, while it has completely disappeared from areas of High Security space. Fleet comms fail, and then refuse to disconnect upon leaving fleet. Sources within CONCORD have indicated this is either the result of a massive failure of the fluid router system, Triglavian interference, or some obviously CODENAMED condition called ‘The Hamsters Died’.

At this time it is unknown whether or not CONCORD’s logistics network, or whoever the hell is running things in Yulai now, will have order restored any time soon, or at all. This is totally not Ret Gloriaxx reporting for totally not The Scope.

(No, seriously, chat’s gone completely weird. It’s not you. Just chill and don’t panic. I’m sure CCP will throw free SP at you for this problem, after all, they’re giving it away for everything else right now, aren’t they?)

CCP did put out this tweet, though:

    Maybe they should just use discord.

    Funny, when Imperium was destroying the north and NC/PL were fleeing to low sec, Drifters started destroying Imperiums structures down south causing us to break off attack and go home. Once there the Drifters seemingly disappear and structure attacks cease. I can’t help but think back to the tech 2 scandals way back when where CCP helped their buddies in BoB out. Were they helping their buddies out yet again?

      I refer you to Hanlon’s Razor:

      “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

        I would think there is a little bit of both here.

          that might have made sense until the chat server shit the bed yet again, now it just looks like CCP can’t find their own ass with both hands and a map.

  • “We’re currently investigating issues with the chat system in New Eden.”. Sabotage???

    well at least we finally know why they decided to do the blackout “test” It was so that no one could see just how shit their new chat servers have become.

    If CCP had a hair on their ass they’d blackout local for all of Tranquility.
