The idea of killing a soon to be enemy titan was still correct though. :crossarms:
The idea of killing a soon to be enemy titan was still correct though. :crossarms:
Badges of Honor: Three probations, one reversed.
They traded all of their credibility and trustworthiness for a hastily decided, and most likely indirect titan 'kill', though.
Especially the manner in which the kill was justified. If any SoTs past their leadership actually read the forums and between the lines, I'm pretty sure whoever had valuable assets in the alliance will be moving them to less... volatile environments.
My e-cred and e-trust backbone
I won't argue the moral / e-honour aspect of it. But in a case where the victim was inactive and rarely participated in the alliance as a whole I don't see anyone losing sleep over his death and it's relation to their own assets. Many SOT players thought he never should have been allowed in in the first place. But recruitment is another issue entirely.
(edit: who neg'd my rep? Bastards.)
How many times have I read on this forum things along the lines of: You should have known he/they were losers/carebears/whatever, you are an idiot for believing them.
a) remove his roles (they confirmed they did it because other FOFF players had left, just to be safe)
b) kill him (the SOT leader dude admitted doing it because he personally disliked Hurley and suspected him of being a spy)
c) not reimburse him (2 SOT leaders had confirmed this is basically tough shit because Hurley cant prove he wasnt defecting, although one later changed his story to "lol ebay".)
If you actually are one of these people, then explain why a different story was previously told.
Do you really think that all of the ms'es and titans that PL produced in unicorn were purely for themselves?
Jesus fuck Lysander, seriously get out of my head.
Pretending like this is somehow going to hurt SoT is hilarious. If you can't put 2 and 2 together and figure out why this happened you're retarded. All of this could of simply been avoided by better communication from hurley, but he didn't give a straight answer to people. Combined with a hostile history, a huge period of inactively immediately after joining, and suspicions of defecting it's no wonder he died.
Also, "valuable assets" of a completely afk titan who has a history of losing titans stupidly. Oh no, however will sot survive
Titan + AFK = deserve to lose $8000, or whatever they are equivilent to these days.
Everyone knows that.
why would you pay that amount of money to buy a bunch of pixels is beyond me...then again 8k dollarz is probably considered next to nothing for some so I guess makes sense..
edit : yase i'm poor
http://eve.igxe.com/EVE/buy-EVE-ISK-...ility-USD.html 10bil isk = $400 so mineral cost a titan is about 1600, add in officer mods and it's more like $2000-2500.
Anything that involves RL cash drops the value of the titan. If you're going to fork over a few thousand dollars basically based purely on the trust of the other person you better be getting a good discount.
In the end it would depend on the two people negotiating the cost. If you want to talk raw cost of timecarding a titan then yea it's going to be way higher, but actually selling the titan for money is going to be cheaper. Selling isk itself to sites or other people will mean you get even less cash, plus the hassle of finding a buyer, paying churriba, etc.
But no, lets continue acting like this is CAOD and try to continue our shitty trolling of this thread.
He DID communicate, he DID leave a mail stating that he was going to be away 'for a while' because he was getting shit straight with his house. People DID know he wasn't nunu. All of the stories he's told so far are stories that don't even in the slightest have relevance with eachother, and can form a nice coherent overview.
Sorry, 4 stories. My bad. And the forth doesn't even make sense unless Nunu was lying out his ass.1. Nunu phoned me and warned me you guys were removing FoF roles and I should get out. I got scared..
2. I was moving my ships to the front line.. (wtf the front line is right where you are!!)
3. Sorry I lied about the above.. I was moving the Titan out to sell it/the char for RL $$$ which is against the ULA so didn't want to say anything.
4. Just yesterday he is asked "What was your mindset when you were putting the ships into the Titan.. did you think we were going to kick you?
The reply... "I was feeling happy as Nunu had just phoned me and offered to buy my Titan"...
I figure I should post some porn here that I already put on the PL board, give me a couple minutes.
1. He had his roles removed for inactivity, and with the three ex-FOFF people leaving SOT had a witch hunt for potential others leaving and taking assets with them. If you had a close titan pilot buddy in a situation like that, you would have resorted to equal measures.
2. He supposedly had three carriers in WY. Why the FUCK would he use a titan to move his own ships to the front line? They were obviously included in the titan deal negotiated with nunu. (he was also going to sell the character, so he most likely wouldn't be able to fly the ships Hurley flew anymore)
3. This one goes perfectly with the above.
4. Goes perfectly with #2, too.
Please tell me what part of YOUR assumptions are proven. It's very easy to skew chatlogs and make people seem at fault for things they aren't.
There's a reason he didn't tell the full story right off the bat and instead tried to make excuses.
He's a terrible titan pilot with too much money on his hands, he shouldn't of even been let into SoT but if it lead to his titan dying all the better.
My bad, replace 'YOUR' with 'ANY'.
while my opinion on this matter is somewhere in the middle the fact that we are indeed talking about pixels and internet spaceships prevails and that denounces any seriousness it can get.
While I'm not sure if he indeed did say this or if its something SoT came up with (that I very much doubt), but if he really involved his kids and their happy xmas bullshit into the game and tried to cause guilt to people who are playing a game to get his titan money back then seriously, fuck him.
Half of the titans die in a "different" way and not actually in combat.. like the one which got youtubed ..
Game will loose one of the drama-sources when (if) they get useless
In all honesty I didn't really give a fuck where the titan was going or if the story was even true.
It was a faggot in a titan that needed to be killed, I'd do the same thing to a few PL members if I could get away with it.
You should start logging in again tbh
Read the SOT command chat porn. None of that shit came into it. It was simply:
"other FOFF guys are leaving, so maybe we should keep an eye on him? Fuck it lets just kill him instead, he is ex-bob"
My point exactly.
I still think they were trolled into killing it, as wagaa alluded to early in the caod thread.
IT knows they have spies, posts this, it gets back to SoT, SoT freak out. Can anyone confirm the IT post?5) Evidence against me includes:
An IT forum post from someone asking if their quote friend "hurley" can rejoin IT 3 days before my death.
The "real life" slant offers nothing in favor of hurley's position. In fact, I'd saying it's the most damning part of it. He was planning to ebay his Titan to buy his kids Christmas presents. What a retard.
If you don't have time for / can't afford internet spaceships, then by all means don't play internet spaceships. But don't expect special treatment due to your frankly pathetic real life issues.
Wait, wait, special TREATMENT? So now keeping tens of billions of isk worth in assets of your own members alive is special treatment now? I'm going to bed, this thread stopped making sense a long time ago.
