Mittens just ruined penifsmash posts for me
THANK YOU COME AGAIN
penifsmash ruined penifsmash posts for me.
It's almost like people have never played this game before.
Supercaps are great for piling into some :redpencta: timer and wagging your genitalia, but the vast majority of the effect is psychological. It only breaks the morale of the enemy if they themselves believe the myth of invincibility. Besides maybe in the Legion of the Pandemics, supercap pilots are among your least active and least gung ho players. Sure they'll all log in for the big "hellcamp" or timer brawl, but their participation quickly drop when they're shooting sbus across ten systems every day. Furthermore, the blob can't be everywhere at once, and the more you split it up, the more its psychological and actual power decreases exponentially.
Sure, 75 titans is really impressive. We should all be amazed. However, it will be 3/4 of that next time, and another 3/4 of that the time after. Then the numbers will slowly bleed away as people decide not to log in their 80b space penis to shoot sbus like it's a job. Then eventually you catch one making a mistake, or a few split up because people get cocky and complacent, and then all your pixelated spaceship might amounts to nothing because in the end it's just 75 guys, with all the weaknesses and vulnerabilities that entails.
WN and Raiden aren't PL. They aren't the balls to the wall heroes of various Y- systems; they're the DRF, NC, IT blobwar kiddies, and they'll melt away again like they've done before as soon as the battle goes beyond x up for blobbing one system once per week. All you need to do is keep fighting, and not let yourself be swayed by the extremely fragile and unwieldy tool that is the supercap blob.
PAge 50 sniper while shooting structures with DBRB. Life is good.
Isn't the Branch war about sov? So surely the only measure of how it's going is how much sov is taken or defended? The fight yesterday seemed to be about people just wanting to fight, they'd done all the sov stuff before it had started.
You need to beat them into passivity so you can grind structures in peace.
You see losing all the sov objectives yesterday was just to make the combined forces of bad posting over confident before the trap was sprung. Now the CFC has lost all those battleships and only killed suicide triage carriers in return they will reassess the situation and in a moment of blinding clarity see the truth. This is all folly and is but the first domino to fall in an unstoppable sequence of losses that will lead to the Goons 0.0 dream to be ended in an unrelenting wave of elite pvp and smug posts.
Well played White Noise, well played indeed.
It doesn't matter how many titans they have, our skymarshal is way hotter than theirs :3
And we have a Machariel who has managed to not die for a while.
Stahl, Machs are reimbursable because you yelled at Atrum, C/D?
Sovwar is all about morale. Your target is the enemy players and your goal is to make them leave their alliance, not log in, or play like shit because they're demoralized. Then, when they represent no tangible threat, that's when you take all their sov. Until then, sov is just another possible venue from which to attack their morale and shape the discourse.
This sanctum is putting up more of a defense for their Pith Station than WN. did in BKG.
i have to stop +repping you, syndic. stop making me do this.
Actually reflecting on the strategic situation, this war will be won by whoever breaks down and hires PL first, which will be WN, so WN will win. I assume PL have positioned themselves for this and expected this outcome all along, which is why they really don't (didn't) want to see WN collapse before they could rally and have something left worth paying to defend.
If goons were smart, they'd hire PL now and drive this puppy home, letting future tech income from tenal, vale, and branch recoup the cost. However, they won't, so they'll lose.
This war just suddenly got far less interesting...
The new currency in EVE is PL.
We don't need to hire PL. We just need to strategically position a bunch of TEST Drakes in-between our fleet and PL's.
I don't see them as contradictory. The first quote was just a regurgitation of textbook, broadly-applicable sovwar theory, which then led to the contemplation of the actual specifics of this particular situation, which then in turn led to the second quote.
The second admittedly represents a large jump in focus, but I don't feel that it in any way contradicts the first.
Yes, thank you. That's the idea, you see.
As someone who's been on the receiving end, I think the psychologically grinding impact of knowing that a wild fleet of tengus and supercaps could appear at any moment under most circumstances is far more damaging than your marginal contribution to blobwars.
Confirmed. This is the kind of fear we put into the silly dread who sieged on a gate to kill an SBU a few days ago.As someone who's been on the receiving end, I think the psychologically grinding impact of knowing that a wild fleet of tengus and supercaps could appear at any moment under most circumstances is far more damaging than your marginal contribution to blobwars.
Poor guy never saw it coming.
This is my shitpost. There are many like it but this one is mine.
Not sure who I'm propagandizing for...
...regardless, nulli won't get any tech in the end no matter who wins, so suck a dick ROFL
1696 attempts and still no sighting of a good post by Some Market Dude
I guess being an ex-NC tryhard forum spammer makes you dumb in the head and post stupid things
It read like Goon propaganda (i.e., 'doesn't matter that they're dropping tits now, keep it up and they'll get bored eventually'), and besides, we don't want no steenking tech. I've heard it causes weight gain and compulsive use of Cyrillic.
hahahahaha Oh man, nulli + tech = hilarity. That was too easy.
Anyway, as usual Penif posts truth through bile; gonna take a posting break as it's killing my productivity today.
It is ok as once this is all over Tech will be nerfed anyway. I am using my 30 boxing fleet of Dread alts to take all the Chromium which will be the new Tech.
420 stockpile neo everyday.
it surprises me Wn didn't hire PL the moment they saw 1st goon in branch....wn can afford them easily ; but maybe Pl don't want that 800 bil per month
PL will be up here whether we hire them or not, the quest for relevence and attention is at the heart of most PL. After that good fites.
