Confirm, -A- killboard related are beyond retarded and need to be worked on. It's very tricky to get the entire fight into two related without much overlapping.
edit: ok looking at the straight Losses: page lists more... guess it's mostly the related kills feature that's useless
PS: Just enjoying word replacement!
superior numbersing, superior numbersing
There was about 400 wrecks on the field so quite safe to say kb haven't caught all and are useless really.
It borders on pointless to try to compare kb stats given the disparity between them and the fact lots of mails don't seem to get generated.
hey, this thread got better after logic stopped posting.
Node crashed, fuck CCP.
local reached about 1500 then the whole bloody node died. Looked to be an epic evening, now just 2k people all mashing a button hoping to login 1st will decide the fight.....
I got the feeling we were about to get blue-balled. I don't think Goons were going to engage.
Meh - some you win, some you loose. Y2 we didn't complain about the state of the server - to do so now would be hypocracy. Enjoy your station my goon friends
the battle's over already? what happened?
Oh. Assumed the fight was over cuz of this
Enjoy your station my goon friends
Well as much as I would love to cheastbeat and claim that we will all wait it out, as the tz progresses EU guys will end up logging of swinging the advantage to goons.
I guess this will be a good guage of how determined IT will b - if we can sit up at 3am mashing the login button then maybe we can go far.....
this game is really gay
it's pretty nice of ccp to save the station for goons
there's a word filter for g-o-o-n-i-e-s > goons
butthurt admins lol
isk ies mommies toonies lol :~P
Well, what can I say? Apparently the Southern Bloc and IT have more people with absolutely no life, than I expected. After waiting for over an hour on a login screen, the system was flooded with blues and station reinforced. Didn't expect this to happen to be honest. Determination, honor, morale post, etc. GF.
We were never going to fight once IT loaded system to begin with. Hope you all enjoyed staying up all night looking at a login screen, and thanks for the effortless ~70 kills. We'll see you all tomorrow and I guess Tuesday/Wednesday.
The structures weren't going to go into reinforced by themselves anyway, fight or not. Just so that we don't lose sight of why all the ships were there among all the spin and baiting.
Make it regurarly that people dont fight or spin ship at pos, shoot station, and do it for days, weeks,months and your participation goes to shit, make people look at kb, that every night there is ton of fights going on, caps diing, titans burning, and everyone will got the extra hours happily in return for this.
The defender can wait for the best weak numb moment of you and strike. After a while the omfg big op, be there, we know from spying the enemy will show stop having effect, if people bore out or enemy just sleeps in bed.
In the end its morale game and that is only affected by winning and having fun. While loosing your territory is never fun as you surely wanted it to defend in first place. YOu play for the grunts morale, if they happy and have fun, any leader can make a lot, if they not, even the best leaderīs words wont be listened in the end.
Goonfleet has truly become what we hated the most - not only are we literally BoB, but we also (never) fight like Atlas.
It's a dangerous strategy though - the knife can cut both ways. If what Molle says is true and this is not a sov assault yet - how will that strategy work out if we are harassing your ratters and rf'ing your moons the whole time, how's that infrastructure going to be taken care of while you play the waiting game?
Sitting and watching your empire burn is as damaging to morale as unrestricted killing of someones empire - and for all your comments about spies remember it's a 2-way street.
It is all just Goon damage control bullshit. They are outnumbered and outclassed. If they fight, they lose too many ships and do not prevent their opponents from reaching their goals. If they don't fight, they claim they won some sort of morale victory. Querious is going to burn and Delve will follow.
Goons are virtually having a civil war on thier boards about whether it's ok to enjoy consistently winning the K/D ratio. Meanwhile Gossip Whore says they are outclassed.
They are sure as hell outnumbered, though.
Hey here's an idea: since they're so much better, why doesn't AAA/Stainwagon take the iHub timers and IT and the rest take the station timers? They'll still have roughly equal numbers, and their superior class will tell. Arf.
P.S. In your face, stupid word blocker, haha
Whether or not we've actually go the stomach to sustain this kind of campaign remains to be seen - but at the moment I'm fine with it and I think most other IT guys are.
God this forum has really gone to shit recently with all the new shitposters.
'rest of eve' rofl. we've been either outnumbered or fighting on even terms for a while now. The AAA vs goon thing was primarily a southern conflict until AAA realized how shit they were and napped the GBC and dragged them down south to bail them out. When bob got haargothed and the mad dash for delve started the initial battles like J-L and 8wa were more or less even, the loss of shrike and waagaa's mothership broke the GBC morale and led to them losing participation. this was about the only real time we had an edge in numbers and allowed us to camp them into pr- for a month while AAA and co were greedily taking abandoned space (you know, instead of helping their allies).
then AAAwagon finally came west and packed 1400 people into 49-. the other side has been the ones superior numbersbin' for a long long time now and there's nothing 'ironic' about it.
I know you want to argue about that all over again for 20 pages, but everyone has their own view on what happened. Basically, Goons sucked ass, they were going to die and got saved by a spy in BoB.
ugh PL resets and AAA/IT cream themselves.
and we have to endure more of the same shit from windy & coI'm genuinely surprised that Goons didn't come to help them out at the end, and I imagine that PL's pride took more of a hit than their reputation. After the way PL supported Goons so unquestioningly just to get Goons the vanity trophy of Delve I did expect them to return the favour.
Perhaps that's not what you meant to say but that's how it sounded. I'll give you the benefit of a doubt since you made that remarkably honest post about the reason for IT.
edit why do I have this goddamn quote now
Things are heating up again, 49-u local broke 1000, I think Goons have more dreads in the system and around 10 titans, I-HUB comes out in 20 minutes and it doesn't look too good for -A- and Co.
ccp got goonswarms back again
