Oh, I perfectly get the Minmatar.

The fact that they care for their kin to no end, and that any rational civilized society anyway wouldn't send thousands of crew to sudden death "just to make a statement", though, is what breaks suspension of disbelief for me. All the Midular arc was one of the worst they did to my eyes, right after TEA. And not just because I liked Midular.

Yea I don't understand how 'family and tribe first' gels with 'death mission of massive crewed ships just to make a statement

We are veering off of topic but IMO Colelie was fairly silly on just about all fronts.

I realize they have to shoe-horn some of these plots around things that can happen in space, but watching a ton of matari dreads suicide in that particular way was poorly done.   It reminded me of the time all those shield-tanked blood raider ships got lolwrecked for a smaller event. 

Back to Jamyl, now that patch is out have there been any new goings on in game or news feeds about ze drifters and such?

As opposed to ton of both Gallente and Minmatar NPCs suiciding themselves against capsuleers in missions since the appearance of capsuleers?  :psyccp: At least this time they had a chance.

Naglfars at zero on Moroses is anything but "having a chance".

Lagging Behind

Morwen's Law:
1) The number of capsuleer women who are bisexual is greater than the number who are lesbian.
2) Most of the former group appear lesbian due to a lack of suitable male partners to go around.
3) The lack of suitable male partners can be summed up in most cases thusly: interested, worth the air they breathe, available; pick two.

Also :NPCs: in general. They're best not to look at unless you want to tear your hair out. We tend to have an expectation of more logic when there's an actual human at the controls, though.

I like the implications of Gallentians being punched in the face by walking up to a Minmatar as they so freely use another person's culture as a fad.

The weird thing is: There is a real human controlling those NPCs decisions...

Yeah, sorry. I meant, we can generally look away from the actions of purely code-based NPCs in things like missions, since they behave so illogically it's not even worth trying to rationalize them.

But, at live events when there is an actual dev behind the actor accounts, we expect a higher degree of intelligence.

I think it's more like "tomorrow afternoon I need....(looks around at least busy programmers who might not play the game much) you 6 people to stay late after work and do a live event thing, we'll have ships fitted for you and I'll fleet warp all of you."

I donts wants to stays late, I has the beer to drink

Yea me either! The beer!

Fine, I'll.... quadruple box half of the event *ugh*

:P
