Traffic Jams in Jita - avoid Sundays at all cost!

Anyone who's been playing EVE Online for a while will know that Jita, a major trading hub, is an area to avoid as much as possible. And that's even more so on Sundays which is typically "the" busiest day of the week for EVE capsuleers. Almost every Peak Concurrent Users Record has been established on a Sunday afternoon (EST).

This is exactly what one capsuleer, Pot Shot, learned the hard way. So beware newbies, if you ever decide to visit Jita on a Saturday night, make sure to make a few jumps away from that system before you dock and call it quits for the night!

hehe, i've experienced Jita on the weekend. I don't think that anyone really appreciates the term 'Black Hole' until they've tried to jump to Jita when it's busy.

Thanks for the comment btw, at first i thought i was starting to get hit by spam bots, but it just seems that a fellow Eve player stumbled upon my blog :)

Heh. No relation fortunately. This is why I stay out in Amarr.

After looking at the avatar, I do wonder if he's the good potshot. I, of course, am the evil potshot and have the goatee to prove it. :D

@kandor - Black Hole sounds like the perfect name for it!

@p@tsh@t - Wasn't sure if that was you, but I guess you confirm that it's not. Evil with a goatee eh? =)
