As much as people complain about sov, it's nice to have my own station system for ratting. I was late to the party though and had to settle for one with only 2 forsaken hubs.
I see someone stopped taking their meds.
I would have clicked that link if I hadn't already found out where it went thanks to some dickbag corpmates
"Hey guys, check out this titan kill I got in on!"
"Sounds legi---GOD FUCKING DAMMIT"
noscript has saved me from whatever that is twice now. I'm p pleased.
My question is if what The Mittani has done with Goons and the CFC is so damned easy how come no one else has done it? Why didn't Team (no)Tech get together and work out a unified strategy for countering the threat of the CFC?
Back in my Marine days I used to semi-joke that I would make friends of anyone who could whoop my ass and if that failed I'd make friends with someone who could whoop theirs.
That's basically what the CFC has done. You have a number of entities who couldn't stand up to other alliances such as Raiden. on their own but are able to band together with a buddy who can. This allows smaller alliances to fight above their weight class and defend space they couldn't otherwise hold.
The real question is considering just how successful the CFC has been. Why hasn't anyone else managed to emulate it?
So the CFC has managed to kill off any enemies who could threaten them, who's fault is that?
Goons are the most hated entity in EVE, so why hasn't anyone figured out how rally enough swinging dicks under one banner to thwart them?
If what the CFC does is so easy why hasn't anyone figured out how to forge the legions of butt hurt pubies together into a force that could threaten it?
There'll be renewed hatred for us soon enough. Who knows, it might even start a new foreverwar.
The Forever War began because we could not communicate with clones. Someone clone Sir Molle so the cycle can begin anew.
Maybe because not everyone who is in an Alliance dreams of being part of a mega Blob that rules EVE? Being in a smaller entity with toons of small targets around you is actually pretty fun, you should try it.
[Arrador] possesses a considerable understanding of ship configurations, strengths and weakness. He gives clear and purposeful instructions, is good at taking advantage of the fleet-composition he's dealt, and never loses sight of the main goal: fun. This, paired with an excellent tolerance for strong drink gives him an almost Churchillian capability to win, despite being completely pissed on booze most of the fleet operation.
If I had a line of blow for everytime someone said "they gonna conquer all of 0.0" I'd be face down in a scalding hot bath in my hotel room.
NC is so amazing sov is broken i hope they change it
CFC is so amazing sov is broken i hope they change it

The CFC is at best a year and a half old I would not exactly say you are the longest lasting coalition in the history of the game. In maybe 3 or 4 more years you can blow that horn, if your still around but I would say the DRF -A- Block and the original NC was probably 3 of the longest lasting orginizations in Eve History. All those groups have/had lasted for around 4 or 5 years. CFC may or may not even be around at that point. I would just warn against your CFC is forever speech till you have made it further then those other coalitions that fell apart....and in the example of -A- are still actually running.
how do I become a leadership specialist I want to take my space corporation to great new heights
Sorry, what enemies exactly did the CFC killed yet? Could you please remind us? CFC emerged when there was simply no large coalition left that could threaten them. All other carebear blobs were already dead. Where was the CFC when NC was getting raped by the forces of elite russian pvp? Waiting for everyone else to die off is not exactly winning...So the CFC has managed to kill off any enemies who could threaten them, who's fault is that?
Because no everyone is having fun with 3000 faggots in one system. Blobs are not fun. This is not a matter of life and death, it's a video game and people are trying to have fun.Goons are the most hated entity in EVE, so why hasn't anyone figured out how rally enough swinging dicks under one banner to thwart them?
True we din't fight the one big fight against all of them but that is thanks to mittens' ~leadership skills~. The only alliance that could have pulled all of those alliances together was PL but they don't want all their tech reinforced untill it gets nerfed.
To be fair, peeps pretty much went apeshit when it happened since it is in too many ways antithetical to our culture. I dislike sov, stupid j4gs and jews as much as leetcheese but it was the wrong approach and does imitate what various 'elite pvp' alliances have done, even though the action in and of itself is not 'elitist'.
edit: does the puncutation go before or after the quotation mark at the end of the word?
There's nothing worse than having a good idea for a post not being good enough to pull it off :negative:
True, I have raped history, but it has produced some beautiful offspring
Purging of Regions, yes it's a moral booster to see the influence map and dotlan, but I and many others don't give a shit about sov.
I do get miffed having to pack my stuff, but hey that's eve.
What I do enjoy is the good old fashioned roam or a grief a few low/zero sec gates. Not to everyone's liking but then again tons of peeps love the 1k+ v 300 fights.
Each to their own.
CFC have a long way to go below they can be considered king of the hills, there will be another school yard bully with bigger mates ready to put the boot in sooner than later.
Time will tell.
We're done with taking new regions unless something unpredictable comes up, so all the "GONNA TAKE OVER ALL EVE HURRRR" shit is p. lawl no matter who it's coming from.
H-W by May.
One of the most common historical and ~eve online~ errors is to conquer too much. You need enemies near you, but not right on your border; too much peace makes you soft and weak. Up north we have NCdot/RDN across the Venal border and IRC in CE; near enough to have daily fights, but not so near that we are at strategic risk. Down south there's the whole Delve Ghetto right on the border of Fountain.
The NC collapsed because they conquered everyone around them and had no threats to keep them from weakness. They got sloppy because they didn't need to be anything other than sloppy; it wasn't until the retarded DRF invasion that a real threat manifested against them, and Angry Russians over the border knocked the whole thing over. Goonswarm faced similar stagnation when Delve/Q/PB/Fountain was all blue. Goons have succeeded in EVE because, since 2006, everyone and their brother keeps trying to murder us. It's important to keep goons dying, daily, or we'd enter a Delve-style era of stagnation.
The rest of the game will likely now turtle up should you show and just move out to low sec or the nearest NPC 0.0. Where would you go, Delve? Nulli and company would make a great fight, IRC? Dead in 2 weeks, tops, AAA? They'll let you plow the whole south over and over and just constantly retreat to stain. NCdot? They might show up and harass a fleet or two but largely they'll do the same thing raiden did, evac assets and just sit back and watch, they have a huge nest egg to live off of for about 2 years.
Even kicking member alliances like FCON and shit out wouldn't really help you, as they'd simply leave their space, unable to stand up to events that would come next, still leaving you sitting in a sea of your own coalition. You had a delicate balance where you had fun near home for your entire alliance, and rather than milk it or try and foster that border war you stomped it to death.
How dare you insinuate that I wear underwear?
If you look at the borders of the CFC and the borders of the NC you don't see a huge difference. Sure, the center of power is now Deklein, and they own Cloud Ring and Fountain instead of Tribute and Vale, but the core is still there.
It will be interesting to see how long you can maintain at this level. I would love to see a civil war will break out, but all your coalition partners have been spayed or neutered, so its unlikely.

Fear the KKM
We swung first at -WN- and then went after RDN who really started the entire mess. If there's anything you can blame us for, it's holding grudges like a... well... goon.
yep yep yep goons are fucked they won eve and the game over screen just came up, better just fucking die now oks
everything moving ahead as planned bros
ps. i also agree with elise randolph fuck propogandas
