Roleplayer Protest Movie - MOVIE DONE - PAGE 4 !!!!
I'm announcing a RP player protest movie project. As you all know we're being gouged right out of PvP by CCP's ridiculous 50m a week PvP war charge.
THIS COULD BE THE END OF RP IN EVE!!!!!
We need to rise up and protest!!!!!
Majaraw had an excellent idea relating to a protest and a couple others mentioned some good ideas we can use to highlight our problem.
What I propose doing is making a "eve-movie" about our plight and posting it on the eve-online forum for all to see.
The protest movie would go like this.
Intro - Big music and scenery
Part I - Combat footage, voice over about the war and the honor of both sides.
Part II - CCP puts in Exodus.
Part III - We're poor RP'ers and we can't afford to fight.
Part IV - Mining together like pathetic carebears.
Part V - End with a petition with all our names on it
We can intermix it with "testimonials" from prominent people. Like AsheRaven could come up and say "Hi, I'm AsheRaven, I used to fight for the freedom of an entire race but thanks to war charges now I mine Veldspar".
Or Golan could say "Hello I'm Golan Trevize holder of the Order of the Sacred Cross awarded by the Emperor for defending our Empire. Now though I defend our empire from scordite because we've been priced out of PvP".
I mean make it PATHETIC!!!!!!
I've found a program online where we can "make" voices to speak the testimonials.
Guys I've got a ton of combat footage. All we'd need is one hour mining op and some of you prominent guys to do a quick write up (with alot of sarcasm) about the RP PvP problem.
I could put this together by next Monday if we can do a mining op this weekend. I think it would be a "funny" video but also really show what has happend to RP PvP in Eve with these price gouging fees.
What do you think?
when you bring in the exodus can you rename it from 'eve mmorpg' to 'mmog'? like have the rp whiter and fall off the bottom of the screen? or have the exodus sign knock the rp out the wording?
edit and have voice overs saying stuff like 'SCRAMBLE THAT VELDSPAR! WE DON'T WANT IT GETTING AWAY!"
eve has never been a mmorpg, even the thingie that came with the cd says A Massively Multiplayer Online Game...
it's so true it's even the f.a.q. says it's a mmog
Sounds good Archie - maybe we should arrange an hours mining in Yulai
Say about 18.00 EVE Time - ceasefire in effect from 17.00 to 19.00?
Lets clear some noob belts of veldspar
i'll ask Oveur in the dev chat tonight - I hate mining anything other than CVA ships.
If we do this during the week can we do it around 23:30 - 00:30 EVE time? That way some of the US guys can participate as well.
QUOTEGolan could say "Hello I'm Golan Trevize holder of the Order of the Sacred Cross awarded by the Emperor for defending our Empire. Now though I defend our empire from scordite because we've been priced out of PvP".
gasps for breath
Archbishop, you kill me, man By the way, I'm all for it.
Yeah baby, sounds like alotta fun
Commander "We have 20 asteroids on scanners, fleet warp out, we cant take that many! "
Khal "Lets go in sir, we can take em"
Commander "No, its suicide dont do it Khal"
Khal "Sorry Sir, but those asteroids gotta pay, they enslaved my family. CHarrrrrrggeeeeee!"
Dammit, the asteroids got me webbed, heeeeeelp
Watch that big roid, it looks like its about to do something any minute...
Ok, not as good as yours, but im sure we could have fun with it. lots of fun.
Or.. we get loads of news ships, have a massive standoff between our sides, have nig amotspheric music, the battle to end all battles between two mortal enemies... then we start firing, zoom in on the concord ships
"Citizens, cease and dessist, Roleplay is these parts will cost you 50 million a week, return to your homes"
QUOTE"A Massively Multiplayer Online Game"
Massively Multiplayer Online MINING Game" :shock:
Great ideas guys esp Khaldorn and Horatio (funny!!!). Start writing up your testimonials make them very sarcastic as well.
I'll start putting stuff together for it tomorrow and shoot the mining footage this weekend. Just let me know I can be there to film anytime this weekend as long as its not Saturday from 1700-2300 any other time is good.
This wont be a very polished movie but I think it'll get the point across.
"Will mine for war"
"Greetings, my slaver scum enemies. How goes the war against the deadly veld?"
Sounds like fun
I'll be there. Just tell me when and where.
Let's plan on Sunday at 2000 Eve Time that way both EU and US can participate. We'll do the op in Yulai. All should bring "cheap ships" armed with mining lasers.
Can you web and scramble an asteroid? The "web" effect of an asteroid might be kind of funny. Same with missiles bring a couple so we can fire at the asteriods (shouldn't bring down Concord).
Is that time ok with everyone?
"hi, I'm Eddie Gordo, I have killed more amarrians in the name of freedom than you have had hot dinners. Now the highlight of my day is finding some dense veldspar!"
i like that eddie can i haul for u , see i have this ubar Bestower setup that i want to try out
STOP WHINING! GET MINING!
hehe reaper vs noob amarr ship war it's all we can afford to lose nowadays and no mods
The Inquisition does not approve of veldspar or scordite in Amarr space!
Coupled with a shot of my precious Zealot opening up on a veld rock with miners
QUOTEhehe reaper vs noob amarr ship war it's all we can afford to lose nowadays and no mods
This cracks me up ...
