For those of you who havent heard, EVE Online encountered a massive 2800+ player fight the other day, which resulted in a less than perfect battle, I wont bother going in to details about the fight or game, however it generated a lot of complaints, the main one being "the game only uses one core, why not all?".
The game is built using stackless python and C++
Now a spokes person for CCP responded with "...there's no simple way to make something multithreaded..." among other things.
Ok so my question is (baring in mind I do ALL my multithreading work in C#), how accurate is this statement? I am not trying to cause a flame war or anything I just find this comment 'unusual' and feel it is invalid but due to limited experience in C++ it would be wrong of me to even assume this, help me understand what he means.

Thanks in advance
PS: The reason I havent asked CCP myself is simply because they are terrible at replying and put very little effort in responding
