" CCP Masterplan - we're looking at changing three things before the end of the year. First is intra - corp aggression rules - At the moment all members can now freely aggress each other. We are looking to change this so that being in the same ember corp does not give you the right to legally kill your corp mates."

This would put a severe crimp in purple BLTs and CLTs and similar type events. Would also mean that 1v1s between corpies would have to be duels (not hard but irritating) would also put an end to FFAs of any sort.
Obviously this would be pretty crappy for RvB, but aside from our microcosm, why the F*** do CCP keep entertaining these shitty ideas... EvE is supposed to be dangerous, it's EvE's niche, why are they f***ing with that ?
Edit : CCP Bettick does mention that this will hurt us, so they are at least aware. Mang seems to take quiet a sanguine POV
Tbh, when this first came up I was pretty "NO NO NO NO", however I gave - and continue to do so - it more thought, and eventually by the time of the Summit an idea had formed.
The idea that while this change would hurt us without someone there to help CCP understand how to lessen that pain, it would hurt us more if we (by we I mean me) argued and stamped our feet and threw toys out of someones pram.
This change will overall be better for the health of the game, and you know what a healthy game means for us? More bodies for the Forever War. More people coming to us to get that first taste of pvp, or to try and relive those old time pvp rushes.
Luckily for us, CCP know we are a HUGE pain point when it comes to this particular item. Changes here without consulting us could "in theory", destroy some of the things that makes us, us. FFAs, Pilot swapping for fights, events and so much more. I have already briefed CCP on exactly how we legitimately (unlike the rest of EVE it seems) use this mechanic and am eager to work with them to lessen the pain that changing it would cause RvB.
(Becs duels suck as they are person limited. Cannot run a 100 man FFA on those )
Anyway, I really came here to post that it took an RvBer over 24 hours to spot that
