So the Burn Jita event has been supposedly set for Friday 27 April now – what’s the betting it actually starts on Thursday. By saying Friday they now possible force a spike of traffic on Thursday, and could therefore potentially take advantage of that.
As to numbers in system – well before TiDi came into effect, I was in a fight in a system with other 3,200 others. It was horrible and didn’t really work, but the node didn’t crash. If that was before TiDi, is it unreasonable to think that perhaps with TiDi around 4,000 people could be accommodated on the special Jita node?
I’m going to go and try and find out, but I’m guessing Fraps will be a waste of time simply because of the massive lag that will enivatably be in attendance.
As to the supposed OTEC thing – if markets become too unsettled, very bad things happen. If Goons genuinely want to try and ruin the T2 manufacturing market, I have no doubt that bad things will happen.
Also, how many people will now be publically posting nasty things about Goons just to get the attention of their death squad? Perhaps this is why some bloggers have, over the past few weeks and months, magicallly discovered that their game-style isn’t as far from the Goons as they once thought? Cynical? Maybe, but then I have been known to be that way sometimes.
