As part of the talk, Alex aired a private correspondence in which a victim revealed that he'd been severely depressed following a divorce and expressed suicidal thoughts. "We're sure that he's not dead," Alex flippantly remarked during the talk before adding that "he might have committed suicide.

 

later in the talk Alex actually gave the name of the pilot and encouraged players to harass him in order to make him commit suicide. "Incidentally, if you want to make the guy kill himself, his name is [redacted]," Alex said, adding that "he has his own corp. Find him."

 

Just wondering what planet you're from, I guess for you to think giving out contact information, a PM in which someone admits they are suicidally depressed after a recent divorce and encouraging the player base to heckle the guy into killing himself isn't offensive. You do understand that this is criminal in many countries, right?

 

If he wanted to avoid harassment he can easily sell an in game character for in game money and play one of the other many characters I am sure he has, EVE allows you to go after other players with a sort of e-vendetta. You say something wrong to the wrong person you might find a fleet at your doorstep the next day, its just part of the game. For sure individual players are targeted for various reasons every day. Also if you look at this person's profile he is taking this with a cooler head than many of you guys. EVE players are pretty tough I don't think you can easily bully them like you do kids in other MMOs, often they write -fake- sob stories to get someone off their back, not saying this is what this player did here with Mittani but its probably one of the things that went thru Mittani's head while he was being a very mean mean person.

 

I am sure it did go through his head, he still just needs to man up and resign.

If its criminal then he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Vigilane justice is wrong, and mob mentality vigilante justice more so.

Edit: While we're at it why are we judging all of the company that runs a game by a player of that game, merely because they have been hesitant to react to this situation as it is probably a very "sticky" one.

I suspect his ego is preventing him from doing that. If he does some random alliance somewhere will be commiting some injustice (goon propaganda) and will be promptly invaded by a thousand goons foaming at the mouth for internet glory. While also having a side effect of restoring some mittani epeen.

The poll itself isn't correct as the guy didn't kill himself.

I also don't think that "justice" is everyone jumping on the aggressor and making them a victim.

We are in the age of the internet lynch mob.

Listen I was with you, I was all for lynching this guy, I read the same articles you have and was outraged. Then I actually watched it (1 boring hour of it) and what I read to what I watched didn't tally, it's called selective journalsm, they have sensationalised the actual events.

Watch it and decide for yourself (the last guy about 15 mins and the questions part where he gave the name -in a drunken slur), like I said I agree with your sentiment on what has been written but it's not what I felt happened so if your looking for someone to blame if the guy had of topped himself I'd of gone with the exceptionally unresposible reporting of it.

Btw Earth, but the jury is still out.

Criminal Mittani behaviour: https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=86554&find=unread

The funny thing about this whole debacle is that 99.9% of the people who are upset have absolutely no idea what even happened. They didn't watch the 1+ hour panel to see the two second drunken slurs that came out of that douchebags mouth. All they are doing is going by what they read or heard from someone else.

 

If you are going to be upset, at least make sure you take the time to find out what actually happened. While I don't condone the douchers actions people are blowing this way out of proportion.

 

The fact of the matter is that there is an extremely high chance that the guys message to the goons was fabricated to try to get some type of reimbursement for the 23+ mackinaws he lost + the amount of isk he paid goons for their "protection" scam.

 

 

Either way, you stupid sheep need to get over this.

I've watched the panel, read the articles, and can only say one thing: It's HILARIOUS to watch all these supporter of The Mittani, the very same people who grief and lololololol about "oceans of pubbie tears", cry like little bitches and scream about how unfair this witchhunt is now that the tables are turned.

 

How do you like a taste of your own medicine, lamers? Double standard much?

So what you're saying is, his specific actions in this case do not justify the outcry, however collectively the goons are cess filled polyps on the anus of life and deserve everything coming to them? That's a movement I can get behind wholeheartedly! Are we also happy with the bad press ccp get? Afterall I fkin hate eve for all wasted hours I've spent trying to like it.

Well, I have to dial it back some. I actually kind of like EvE, even its harsher aspects and I think some of the hard edge of it is very good and the gamers who play there have a right to do as they see fit IG. I just think that for an organization like GS, that boasts about using "psychological warfare" and propaganda against its enemies, it's quite amazing to watch how they don't see what is happening. Turnabout is fair play. Live by distortion and underhanded tactics, die by them...

 

I think what he said was over the line because of the public nature of the comments and it is too much to wish that kind of harm on somebody and actually provide encouragement for how to make it happen... I think he showed forethought in adding the slide with the original eve-mail from the miner in question... I don't know if he really intended to encourage people to drive the miner to suicide or if it truly was drunken stupidity, but... having watched it and taking GS for who they are (and the game for what it is), I have to admit that this story (or at least a lot of people's understanding of it) is very distorted in some respects (just certain details were left out of the original articles, whether on purpose or by accident). Yet, I think crossing that line is grave enough to warrant outcry despite the inaccuracies.

 

I really do think it is funny to see such a ruthless organization get knocked down a peg by some of the very tactics that it employs. I find it less funny to think about how this might have damaged Alex Gianturco's career prospects given the nature of google/the internet/employers doing searches into the backgrounds of prospective employees. When people are getting fired for racy pictures showing up on their public facebook pages and the like, what he did was very, very stupid. Being so successful in the game have made a lot of these players feel invincible... I hope what is happening now, once it dies away, serves as a sobering reminder for us all about how we conduct ourselves online.

 

The younger generation coming up (and many of the older gamers too, admittedly) don't always grasp the implications of our actions online and within virtual worlds (including some of the public spaces that are related to online activity, be they online, like forums - or offline, like fanfests). People go around acting like their behavior and conduct doesn't matter because "it's online... who cares!?" as if the randomness and relative anonymity of it all makes being a dick perfectly okay. This current episode in EvE's bizarre and often entertaining history is just another example of a player who lost a sense of where the boundaries of one realm (the game) end and where another realm (the real world) begins. With the current public fervor about "cyber bullying," it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see how what he did is bad for him, bad for EvE, and even a little bit bad for MMO's.

 

Anyway, these players all felt insulated and invincible because it was a fanfest... which makes it sad. Part of the fun of going (or viewing) such an event is the spontaneous nature of it all. Plus, it lets the diehards let their hair down and enjoy being passionate about their passion. I have no qualms with that, though I could do without some of the alpha-male prick waving that seems to be synonymous with fun at these kinds of things. Still, anybody with half a brain knows that in such a public forum (with literally thousands of people watching), you should probably avoid so much alcohol and you sure as hell better avoid advocating for bodily harm against other people, making racial/religious jokes, etc. At least I would hope that a lawyer (or law student??), which he supposedly is/was, would know better. I will add, just for the hell of it, that I actually liked the EvE-UNI guy and the first wormhole kid was okay too. I can't say that I share your hate for the game, but I do find it humorous that even the goons will have to accept at some point that The Mittani got what was coming to him. You can't put yourself up on some pedastool because of what an evil bastard you are and then act wronged when the same mud you've been slinging comes flying right back at you. TL;DR (unlike the rest of this mess) = what goes around comes around.

I don't get how this is even causing controvesy.

A player harrassed another at an official event, said player got a 30-day ban and resigned his community possition, end of story.

Not only that but CCP is making changes to future events/panels so this doesn't happen again.

Much ado about nothing.

Not only that but CCP is making changes to future events/panels so this doesn't happen again.

Much ado about nothing.

Are you serious? You really don't get why this is a huge deal? Just pick up any newspaper, turn on the news, listen to the radio even and you will hear something about "cyber bullying".... students rallying against it, mothers upset about it, mothers doing it and getting thrown in jail, states and countries passing laws about it, etc.

 

Games do not exist in a bubble and until some of you wake up and realize that you have to think about what you say in a public forum, stuff like this will feed the media frenzy that's already in full swing. This whole thing is about perception and about how public sentiment is hardening against anything that even remotely comes close to what happened here.

 

It might seem all well and innocent to you, but we are a few more events like this away from hardcore laws and regulations on online gaming/"massively multiplayer" interaction of ALL sorts. It will just take some person to kill themselves over something like this for all kinds of governments and pencil-pushers to get involved in the process. This is a BIG FUCKING DEAL and those of you who try to just ignore it away are missing the bigger picture. Some of us can still remember the religious backlash against D&D and nonsense like that... Online gaming (and interaction in general) is being threatened in the same way with all the news reports about teenagers killing themselves over facebook bullying and the like. Therefore, the kind of crap that The Mittani/Alex Gianturco did has simply got to stop, as funny and harmless as some of you think it is.

 

There is a big ass tidal wave bearing down on the internet right now. We've seen it with all of these laws (US and elsewhere) related to "cyber terrorism" and, now more and more often, "cyber bullying"... People need to start growing up and realizing this isn't just a FFA where you can spit in everyone's eyes and laugh about it without consequences. The beauty about online anonymity (and MMO's in general) is that they allow us a certain freedom, we can literally become another persona in some cases, but the other side of that awesomeness is the danger of losing it all because people don't know how to keep the game world and the real world separate.

Truthfully, what Mittens said is a legit concern. 

That's not to say their isn't meta-gaming going on either.   Mittens stumbled and became very vulnerable for the first time while being in the spotlight.  Non-goons are using Goon style meta-gaming, CCP endorsed tactics,  to get back at them.

Mittens gets a thirty day ban and is now out of the CCP spotlight, CSM Chair/posterboy status, which he loved so much.

Goons now upset saying their tactics have been used against them.  It's basically an enviroment that CCP has cultivated over the years which has gotten out of control.  It comes back to bite CCP in the ass from time-to-time.

The best thing? The "victim" didn't even got bullied, he didn't even knew about the whole affair until someone actually did a quick "interview" with him days later. He doesn't give a damn.

And yet all those internet white-knights on holy crusade to save the innocent....First class entertainment.

The white knights (also known as pot stirrers) charge in from all sides, because it makes good message board drama, of course.

Standard operations.  's nearly all message boards are used for these days.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I voted the option "I am stupid!"

I'm so broke. I can't even pay attention.

Dude, 

He was drunk and rambling. When he recovered from his hangover and got off the plane he read what he actually said and apologised profusely. Also, it was billed as an unregulated unmoderated forum so CCP shouldnt be held responsible.

Moral of the story: Dont do press events when drunk

 

 

 

Also, someone should check on that suicidal dude. 

 

Good Moral !   someone should share this with Santorum and some of the other candidates ... but I don't think its alchohol they are on.
