Show Notes

  • Harry Potter killed Salomé
    • ‘She was confirmed killed at 20:49 gametime on 29th April, 3303, succumbing to hostile fire from Commander Harry Potter.’
  • Drew’s aftermath
  • Quote from Children of Raxxla
    • It seems the fake news and rumors run amok before, during and after the event. Let me try to clear this up a bit. Believe it, or leave it.

      The people fighting for Salomé did not consist of a single group. PAC might have been the public face of it, but they were not directly responsible for Salomé’s flight. That was in the hands of CoR and a few of our trusted allies. PAC was tasked to organise defense fleets for Raan and Tsu and somewhat help with Salomé too independently from this more private defense force. PAC may or may not have considered SDC an ally, but they were certainly not considered an ally by Salomé’s personal guards.

      SDC was never tasked in defending Salomé, nor were they allowed to get close to her. Harry Potter and other Commanders who interdicted Salomé simply played the game well, got lucky with instancing and did their part.

      Salomé was going to give a speech at the end of the event if she survived, but as far as we know, the listening posts at Teorge are the main answers that needed to be broadcasted.

      I think it’s important to understand that there is no ‘losing’ situation for this event. Whether Salomé delivered her speech or not is not relevant to the grand scheme of things. What matters is whether we have played out an interesting narrative using in-game means. With the current results, there may not be a speech, but there may be a funeral. The story still moves forward, just in a different direction.
  • Media Coverage
  • Issues
    • PAC’s behaviour in the run up to the event was horrendous, Complaint’s of (Irony Alert) PVP Eliteism, denying people access to the event, Kill on sight order (even on their own side, who didn’t follow the rules). Drew on a couple of occasions, asked for PAC to be more inclsive which the response was ‘Don’t go running to Drew, if you don’t like our Rules’.
    • Colin was a victim to those rules, even though the event hadn’t started. In addition, Innocent cmdrs who had nothing to do with the event were targeted (According to reddit). Group I was associated with [Forge] did a sterling job.
    • SDC had spies
    • Why did the SDC get invited?
    • Why did Salome have Harry Potter (etc?) on her friends list? Was it to help with instancing and she was just accepting all?
  • In game aftermath
