Eve online player protest

Footage shows a massive player protest sparked by leaked internal emails discussing the creation of new micro transaction charges that would affect gameplay, players were incensed at the tone of the emails that described them as the “golden goose”. Hundreds of players converged on the central hubs of Jita and other primary locations in gamespace and blasted the permanent structure with their most powerful weaponry. Despite the stations being invulnerable to this kind of attack, the high traffic on the nodes forced server nodes to be shut down and basically slowed the game economy to a crawl.
