Daaaaaammmmmn. You have to hand it to CCP Fozzie, don't you?
First he -- with his very first dev-blog! -- firmly places both hands on the third rail of EVE economics, technetium. Now whether you think that response was strong or weak, you have to admit that he handled it fearlessly and deftly.
And now yesterday, in the midst of what was supposed to be a post about cruiser rebalancing, has managed to casually and unintentionally announce that the two most popular EVE PvP ships of all time are both being massively nerfed.
In short, after ticking off pretty much the entire north and west of EVE null-sec, as an encore Fozzie is now ticking off pretty much every PvPer in EVE. Way to make a name for yourself there, Fozzie. ;-)
Needless to say, a lot of EVE players have jumped straight to "Let's just take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." And Fozzie is dealing with it as best he can.(1) How things will play out, I don't know, but I do have some thoughts about this series of forum posts that I'll publish a little later today in two posts. Just wanted to let all of you know that I acknowledge that it's happening and I want to give it a little more thought before I bang out a post myself.
(1) One thing he said is going to make a rather hysterical QOTW on Monday.
