The most recent ‘scandal’ event in EVE was the name change of the alliance “Just Let It Happen” due to a reported EULA violation that it promoted ‘rape culture’.
First, I’d love for someone to explain to me how changing an alliance name in EVE results in fewer rapes. Not less ‘rape culture’, whatever you want to imagine that might be, but actual rapes. Like was someone going to go out and rape someone tomorrow because they logged in and saw “Just Let It Happen” on their screen, but now that its been changed that person is all set on the raping?
This whole thing blew up, including getting CCP Falcon to comment that the decision was made by a support person, rather than a higher-up within CCP like Falcon. There was confusion over this because typically Falcon is the guy who approves alliance icons into the game, but that doesn’t mean he also approves or is in charge of name changes. The community also put together a nice list of other questionable names if viewed through the eyes of a SJW snowflake, which I think went a long way to show just how silly the initial issue really was.
Thankfully because CCP is CCP rather than your typical tone-deaf MMO devs, the change was reverted and everyone’s favorite online pro-rapist alliance is back! Their celebration roam using Rapiers, Coercers, and Stabbers should go swimmingly (yes I stole this joke from Reddit).
