I'd say we had a pretty good weekend.
Stop inflating their ego.

3. A rookie ship commits aggression on the freighter thereby being concorded. This means that said freighter now have a 15 min logoff timer in hisec.
4. Freighter is ransomed and shot when far off the gate, without being able to save itself by logging off (due to the 15 min aggression timer gained by a criminal act – freighter is scanned down if necessary after the emergency warp).
5. kill it with fire.
The unintended consequence of CCP giving in to whining from 0.0 about alliances getting wardecced..
Edit: What Riverini posted sounds retarded and a troll to have other people fail at their attempts to try the same
This literally yields more than tech moons.
We've been wardecced once a week since we started doing this. Since these are the same guys that fight the empire wars doing the ganks, we have a ton of dps on standby just waiting for scrubs to show up and get dumpstered. We're doing this because our empire war arm got bored because declaring war on scrubs and then owning them was just yielding dudes docking up anytime we rolled through. Bounty hunting under the system we built wasn't really that great with current game mechanics, but CCP is basically adapting their new system to allow us to do what we were doing, without having to suicide gank them. Our system wasn't really worth it for suiciding guys flying around in battleships. The bounties barely covered a single tornado. Bored goons will make their own content. Keep us busy, or get fucked repeatedly, like these guys:
Truth is, these people are extra fucking dumb and lazy. 50% of these people are autopiloting. 100% are not using best shipping practices. That's just a short list of a handful of people that have died multiple deaths to miniluv. Our guys get free ships and bounties for every freighter they gank whether the drop is good or bad. It is fun gameplay, and Riverini can't stand for anything involving goons having fun. He didn't shit on Gypsy Band or -A- for copying us at all. He's selling his narrative, but we're having fun in a game.
CFC's current strategy for taking Tribute is blue-balls. After their last major push and failure to take H-W, they have actively avoided combat, aside from one battle in the TRKN- constellation, and decided that blue-balling us will wear us down while not having any effect on their own numbers.
Lets now discuss how this 'strategy' has worked for other alliances in the past.
Edit: as part of their blue-ball strategy, we saved 14 systems worth of iHubs/Stations.
I herd staying docked worked for -A-
There really is not much to do in USTZ or EUTZ anymore because all your timers are set for AU. If you really wanted goodfights, you wouldn't have set them in that timezone.
You blueballed yourselves really, so I think it's pretty ironic that all the ncdot posters are crying so hard about losing the goodfights we were admittedly having for a while in US and EU time. You guys repeatedly said how much fun you were having and how you didn't care about losing tribute because all this FUN FUN FUN. Well, if it was so "fun", why did you purposefully ruin the fun? No real fun in going out and reinforcing structures when we can't even be there for when they come out.
You want some fun? You want some good fights? Put your timers in GOODFIGHTS/AMERICAN TZ. Do it for your country.
edit: BTW, this is a perfectly valid strategy if your goal was simply to SAVE YOUR SPACE. But that was never your publicly stated goal, so its a confusing decision.

We have solar for EUTZ. So y'all 'blueballing' us in EUTZ gives us time to play with solar.
I don't think you get the part where being DasBoot'ed every day in USTZ doesn't make goodfights.
Stuff in the South is getting kind of crazy.
I'm thinking we're going to try and keep the fights going in Gem though.
Edit: you also forget that you guys were murdering drake fleets left and right. That you chose to engage at close range to the carriers is on you. slowcats are not maneuverable.
oi stevie, what did you want?
Our AU TZ force projection must be larger than I thought.
I find it funny that you think saving space and good fights are mutually exclusive of each other. Up until you guys started not showing up in autz, things were great. That baby titan abortion was one of the best ops i have been on in the last 6 months, went from that to h-w the next night which was pretty fun in the naga fleet, running around with elo blapping things.
Heres how this is going for you:
-You don't show up in autz for fights, cause you get owned.
-We call blueballs.
-You tell us we are blueballing ourselves.
-When you are really only blueballing yourselves.
-Avoiding us at all costs in other timezones the last couple of days, while trying to reinforce shit.

The Goon is a slow and lumbering fellow.
Whatever, we suck, we lose, vfk by november.
Should be very interesting to see what implications Gypsy, RA, WhySo, INK, Darkspawn, Gorgon, and possibly Ultima Rati0 going to war with Solar and IMP-L will have on the current conflict in the North.
I'm not quite sold on Gypsy's claims that CFC has some sort of arrangement with Solar, overt or otherwise, as Solar's conflict with NCdot in Geminate vastly pre-dates the CFC invasion of Tribute by several months. Seems like every other comment's premise one sees about Solar fighting in Geminate is that Solar coordinated w/the CFC and started a new conflict, rather than just continuing the same old ongoing war.
WRT to this: http://forum.eve-ru.com/index.php?showtopic=96128
Russians in EVE refer to the CFC as 'Huns' (?????)?
Offensive blueballing is literally both the gayest and dumbest shit wrapped into one package.
The conflict may pre-date the current war, whether they are in cahoots with them or not. It would make sense to do it, the enemy of the enemy is your friend.
However in this case i don't know why solar should expect goons to assist them, with cfc being shit and loosing razor csaas and all.

The big question I have is IRC. Will they be told to go south and help Solar or will they stay in the North and continue to join fleets?
NCdot is probably doing the smartest thing possible right now, and they are largely succeeding where others have failed. They are (or were, at least) getting goodfights in AU timezone, they're avoiding getting roflstomped by a thousand angry nerds in EU/US vs CFC, while still having very even fights with Solar. The grinding of Tribute has nearly slowed to a halt, they're holding onto what tech they have remaining(for the most part), and are having fun every day, whether against solar and CFC. So you can stop posting about this shit. I'm pretty sure Vince/NCdot leadership know what's best for the alliance better than you do.

That should be a TV show: "Vince Knows Best"
Only in this case instead of Hulk Hogan it's a story about a neckbeard who rides around in a Honda Civic, his left hand, and his two four-legged pets.
There's nothing worse than having a good idea for a post not being good enough to pull it off :negative:
You obviously missed the point of what I was saying Securitas. The last two pages have been nothing but Pillious & Co. bitching about goodfights drying up. Tell them to trust Daddy Vince.
Or is this preparation for an elaborate we-didnt-want-tribute-anyway troll?
I had fun once. It was horrible.
