The “Goons”, who now collectively refer to themselves as members of the “Imperium”, were about to announce “Burn Jita 4 2017 (BJ4K)” from Feb 24th to Feb 27th. However this will now be delayed by about a month. 

Burn Jita is a yearly event hosted by members of Goonswarm where ganking is done around the clock for the entire duration. The name “Burn Jita 4” correctly implies; this has been done 3 times before. Players with a history in the game can recount personal and observed experiences from previous years. Below is a screenshot from a forum post warning its members about the upcoming event. Apparently spying is still a thing.

Ship Fitting to be used for ganking (unnamed source)

Thousands of members descend on Jita from null-sec to board ships that are painstakingly prepared in advance of the operation. Trusted members are given roles to hand them out to members who undock, suicide in co-ordinated attacks, and come back for more ships. Piling into the fray are numerous other entities that want to join the fun, either participating in the ganks or trying to kill the gankers. Jita for a few days becomes a microcosm of null-sec with lawlessness without regard for consequence abounds. During the event billions of isk in ships and cargo are exploded in a matter of days; the common prey are new players or those that are more disconnected from current events of Eve.

Last year, the event was staged in Amarr, and has been roundly perceived to be a failure for the attackers since a mere 360B of assets were destroyed.  While this is a large sum, in previous years the tally of destruction in Jita was much, much higher (closer to an estimated 1 trillion isk). It seems the attackers are looking for more of the old levels of destruction. At the bottom of this article are some articles from EveNews for your reference on the event in previous years; strolling through those accounts will give you a good account of what to expect.

There is also a narrative that some readers may be aware of and I have to admit that this is my opinion. The Imperium is probably looking to regain some momentum and impose its agenda in the game in a manner that it believes is controllable. The false sense of security or omnipotence with that organization have roundly been pounded into the ground. They have successfully re-settled into new space but also failed to assert their strength in a recent southern campaign. The Imperium wants their membership in a positive mood; a self-promoting and unrighteous activity like ganking is exactly what they seek. In the past, the Imperium has used this event as a recruiting/marketing opportunity; it sees this gaming activity commonly referred to as “ganking” as ideal for their membership.

In preparation for the yearly event, players from associated corps and organizations (particularly those who relish in ganking) start building and stockpiling ships as early as August. This is an enormous undertaking with tremendous risk in security.

This brings us to why the event is being delayed. A day or so ago we got this:

A conversation between goon event organizers. (Posted in Statecraft (Its a central EVE discord for FCs and diplos)

And today we got this:

From Reddit

Note – EveNews has spoken to the thief Jason Kusion, and confirmed the theft from CODE. who are not only a major ganking organization, but also tend to assist in stockpiling for Burn Jita. A follow-up article on the theft is planned for later. Needless to say, the stockpile of 30,000 ships was severely depleted and the much beloved/maligned event will likely be postponed but not cancelled.
