Official CIG word!
I just asked Lead designer Rob Irving if Operation Pitchork rang a bell. Here's what he has to say. It's brief but straight to the point. I'm LoneWolf on the Chat and Rob is Designopotamus.

I admit that I felt a small chill at reading that only to have it replaced by excitement.

Yeah I asked rob if we could count on them joining us for the event .... and the only reply I got back was what makes me think they aren't planning to be on the other side?

As for one I did joke around and Rob told me that if we wanted to die Valiantly then we should follow him to battle!

I am getting my my coffin ready!

I'm so happy right now.  I want to see how many carriers they throw at us.

Awesome.

Let's prove them wrong.

I feel sorry for the fleet that will meet the Vanduul Carrier with the whole 100+ devs manning it in an effort to stop us before we reach Orion.

It will be glorious!

Our glorious days of of righteous struggle are coming friends! And the only word that will be uttered to describe them will be "Epic." No other will do.

I read this out loud to my partner and she said "Oh its on now!".

If the devs are going to be actively aiding the Vanduul side of things, this just got much more complicated.

If nothing else, we have to take and hold Orion. To the last ship, to the last Citizen.

Awesome. The OP got MVP on WMH. We've gone gold, everyone. I think we can expect a lot more traffic to start showing up as today's WMH gets more views.

That's fantastic news. Now that the devs are officially aware of our intentions, this looks to be turning into a real end-of-beta event.


To the last ship, to the last Citizen.


Amen.

Sooo glad we made WMH.  And that Ben had a pitchfork - these guys didn't have to go that far...they could have said, "Pitchfork is a go and will be great fun" but they actually got a pitchfork! 

Man this game and these devs rock

Well, if we might get some Retaliators ready we might be able punch some holes in their carriers!

i heard first what they said about it on WMH, and though 'ok, this sounds very interesting [with an small uneasy fealing]', then i read the above, and thought:

[Standing in my hanger in front of my 3 fighters] Alright ladies, fire em up, time for daddy to go to work.  :P

My jaw dropped open when Ben wielded his pitchfork. This will be epic, but we must prove ourselves worthy of it.
