I’ll summarize for all those who have trouble understanding EVE: Mittens decided he would rather be an in-game a-hole to the extreme than have a paper title. Because lets be honest here, whoever the CSM elects as the new chair is chairman in title only. Mittens will still be the power player of the CSM. Only now, he can tell whoever he wants to kill themselves, and when asked about it, explain that he is simply doing what goons do.
And I have no doubt that this entire circus only did one thing; fuel Mittens and the goons to go on a massive rampage and milk more delicious tears from people. Real people, real tears.
