Unread postby News Portal » 28 Mar 12, 6:48 pm

It's one thing to slag off a camper over Xbox Live in a game of Call of Duty, it's another to take to the stage and publicly mock a suicidal player, encouraging other players to make him kill himself. Such was the situation at EVE Online Fanfest over the weekend and now the game's chairman of stellar management council, Alex Gianturco, has announced he will be resigning over the incident.

I smell Chinese Whispers syndrome with this story

Step 1. Get drunk
Step 2. Speak in public
Step 3. Fail
You can just, hang outside in the sun all day tossing a ball around. Or you can sit at your computer and do something that matters. - Cartman, E.

The Mittani has always been an intelligent guy and I think his apology is well intentioned and thourough.

As big a Universe as EVE is, it's a surprisingly small world... he's never going to live this down.

As much as I think Mittens is full of **** at best of times, at least he had balls to apolagize, an quit. Though I doubt very much he will send the young lad anything let alone his isk... (not that it matters)

He has sent all his money (approx 11 billion)

Edit: Besides which, the only people currently calling for his resignation are the same people who were doing this when goons interdicted gallente ice

hehe I lost 2 hulks back in Jihad about what, 4 years back now...Dieing in highsec is your own fault so I dont care. But hes takin the piss mate, if ya think he's sent some lad 11B. I call bollox straight off.
Under the remote chance he actually did, 11b is nothin to mittens...

Still the prat shouldn't ave said what he said in first place aye :)

I dont actually have nothin against goons, they serve a vital perp in EVE to keep things livly.

No, but apart from the news story that would follow if they had - it's not really the point that noone died, but that someone was helping drive someone else IN THAT DIRECTION over a game.

Pretty disgraceful.

This isn't about him just taking the piss dude.

It's like tripping over a cripple down a hill and standing around laughing with your friends.

The guy was already suicidal, and this dude comes along and tells him he should just kill himself.

**** that guy.
