CCP deploys dreadnoughts

So I was reading up a bid on the history of the politics in Eve, specifically the north, where I live, and I came across this little tidbit.

From http://wiki.eveonline.com/wiki/Dusk_and_Dawn_(Player_alliance) fourth paragraph.

E.R.A consisted of member corporations from the powerful fighting alliances of The Five and The Forsaken Alliance, who had been brought together after a previous war that first saw the two as adversaries, then partners in a strange twist of fate. E.R.A wanted the north for themselves – and certainly had the will and ability to take it. What followed was a fearsome war, which in many cases due to the recently shifted political landscape saw friend pitted against friend. Of note during this conflict was the decision by CCP – for the first and, to date, only time in the history of Eve – to become involved in a player vs player war by deploying a fleet of Guristas Dreadnoughts on the side of E.R.A, citing the reason that the Guristas did not want D2 to control their area of space. This intervention fell outside of the scope of D2 military plans and halted an otherwise steady progression towards victory, sparking heated debate on the forums. In any case, it was not enough, and D2 forged onwards – pushing E.R.A out of the north with a prolonged attack and securing the entire north once again under the banner of a Northern Coalition.

This was way before my time, but I seriously want more information about this, it sounds awesome.

    I think that that was a cool move by CCP, having the NPC factions take a stake in us Capsuleers. Honestly I would say we need more of that, but not necessarily by CCP hands directly. It should take into account standings of conflicting parties. I can see a whole cool algorithm controlling it, that would probably make life in 0.0 incredibly interesting, especially in NPC Nullsec.

    Damn that indeed sounds awesome, be it CCP folks or NPCs.

    could you imagine, Guristas or Serpentis attacking alliances POS’s due to low standing in their NPC nullsec space! that’d be hilariously awesome.
