Pods do warp instantly. Shuttles don't, but they align very, very fast. Pre-aligning your ship before you pop doesn't do anything directly, but it gives you a chance to warp out should your opponents drop point for any reason. More importantly, you want to have a celestial already selected before your ship explodes. This can save you 2 seconds before the overview updates post-explosion, which will be the difference in getting your pod out before that inty locks it.

Yep, in addition to the built in problems with RL democracy - slow response times, the ability to buy voters with government handouts, etc. - eve has the additional problems of immortal players and no binding court system. If something goes terribly wrong in RL, there's always the final option of simply killing everyone involved. No dictator lasts forever. In eve, however, there's no resort if someone decides to take the isk and run, or starts making bad decisions and refuses to step down.

Just to eliminate any confusion, Jiny made a typo in his opening line - the event is 20 March, not February.

I'll be waiting outside your josa HQ with a smartbomb BS when you do. don't care about concordokken. I will have your corpse.


Afterthought: do smartbombs harm corpses?


No. However, you need to be more than 5000m from a station or the SB will refuse to activate.
