Last night I spent way too much time watching Lazarus Telraven broadcast the battle in HED-GP that escalated from a fight between Pandemic Legion and HERO Coalition into a supercap fight involving PL, Black Legion, NCDot, and a few other players. When over 30 titans and 100 supercarriers are on field firing at each other, that's news. A lot of those two week old players who were drawn into EVE based on the This Is EVE trailer got to live the dream and participate in probably the biggest fleet fight in the post-Phoebe era.
However, my specialty is the darker side of EVE, and I spent a lot of time listening to the words of a man who makes The Mittani sound like Pope Francis. An ISBoxer user, ShadowandLight, decided to go out and defend ISBoxer from the unreasonable demands of CCP. Actually, he just wants CCP to reverse itself on input broadcasting and input multiplexing.
I subjected those who follow me on Twitter to a running commentary on two podcasts he made an appearance on, the PraiseBob podcast and Lost In EVE. What I haven't subjected anyone to is ShadowandLight's ramblings on a post he wrote, "In defense of multiboxing in EVE Online." I'm not sure if I am going to write on the subject, but I think his thoughts will speak for themselves. In other words, not too logical with a lot of misdirection and outright falsehoods. I should add, however, that I don't know if the misinformation he is spreading is due to ignorance or maliciousness.
Go ahead and listen and read for yourself. The PraiseBob podcast is 2 hours long, but if you're a fan of EVE-Radio's (and sometime TMC contributor) Dirk MacGirk, you may enjoy it. And the interview on Lost In EVE is only 1 hour of a 3 hour podcast. For those asking, Jade is back, so you may want to listen just for that.
For those wondering. Yes, I think ShadowandLight showed himself in such a bad light that all I have to do is link his work and let his words make the argument against input broadcasting/multiplexing for me. If I come back to the subject, I'll do so just to prove that The Mittani is not the most arrogant player in EVE Online.
