Mittens Headshots Self!

As mentioned here almost a year ago I've been waiting for Mittens, aka "The Mittani" to screw up and destroy his position on the CSM and in Eve Online.

It looks like it may have happened.

At Fanfest 2012 The Mittani allegedly said,

"Incidentally, if you want to make the guy kill himself, his name is XXXXX"


Obviously this is a step too far and I cannot see how CCP can continue his involvement as a member, or indeed the Chairman, of the CSM.

His future in Eve Online as "The Mittani" may also be in jeopardy.

More details on the story can be found here.

"CCP has allegedly launched an internal investigation and public pressure is mounting with dozens of threads on the forums and stories by Massively, Euro Gamer, Develop, The Escapist, Edge online and other sites around the web:"

Should his character be removed from the game for EULA violations he will not stay away for long as his re-entry via an alt is virtually assured.

A small chance exists that he'll demand all Goons leave the game or perform some sort of protest, probably in Jita, to demand he stays as Chairman and/or in the game.

Interesting times ahead!

Update #1 - The monument at Jita 4-4 is currently being shot by what seems to be pro-Mittani supporters, anti-Mittani supporters and others who just like being in a group.  The reasons behind shooting the memorial are not clear but the structure seems to be the focus point of late should any grievances arise in the Eve Online universe.

Update #2 - Goonswarm pilots have been mobilised to suicide gank some of the more expensive ships currently shooting the memorial.
