    Holy Shitballs Batman.

    And here find ourselves again. Two weeks remain before Hulkageddon ends, and the forums are full of self-important little shits proclaiming ever so loudly that Hulkageddon does not affect them.
    The same cannot be said for the 5000 poor fools that have been deshipped in the first half of this year’s Hulkageddon, with over a trillion isk in damages done so far. This hulkageddon has exceeded our wildest expectations. I am so very proud of all our great competitors, and remember the race for the gold is not yet over!
    As promised the pilot who tipped the balance past 1 Trillion isk (namely the honorable: MiserySignals of GoonWaffe ) Will be receiving a CASH BONUS of 2 billion isk for his effort.
    There is some fierce competition in several of the prize categories, but most notably Tappad [Gents] (who had been in the lead for most of the event) has recently been overtaken by Oxygen Achasse, who has murdered anincredible 186 miners thusfar. I tip my hat to you sir!


    Deathsquads.

    Naturally the blogosphere has it’s share of Hulkageddon detractors, take for example this good man.
    In his blog he describes (in many words!) how he thinks Hulkageddon is a non-event, and ended his post with the words: Hulkageddon?? ”Pffft. Fucking whatever . . .”
    Naturally this state of affairs could not be allowed! Thus Miura Bull and Kaeda Maxwell of the fine Black Rebel Rifta Club took it upon themselves to conduct a Thorough Investigation ™ to ascertain the identity of this vile Heretic. They succeeded, and purged the Galaxy of his stench. Go read Kaeda’s excellent account of the events on her blog:
    http://kaedamaxwell.blogspot.com/2012/05/prize.html

    Numbers.

    I had the distinct pleasure of being on EVE radio with the esteemed CCP Diagoras aside from being an all-round awesome dude, he is also the undisputed master of EVE numbers. As we waited on a break to pass in the live radio show, he discovered (to both our amazement) that Hulkageddon’s impact can definitely be seen in the statistics of Tranquility.
    I’ve taken the liberty of copying some of his relevant tweets for you:
    John Turbefield ? @CCP_Diagoras
    Compared to the 7 day average before Escalation, the last 7 days have seen a 45.53% decrease in average m3 of ore mined within high sec.

    John Turbefield ? @CCP_Diagoras
    1,543 characters have lost at least five mining barges, exhumers or orcas in PVP since Jan 2010. 141 have lost at least 10…

    John Turbefield ? @CCP_Diagoras
    18 characters have lost at least 15 mining barges/exhumers/exhumers since Jan 2010 to PVP. 5 have lost 20 – the most? One person with 30.
    Thank you for your hard work Diagoras, and I won’t forget that Pint of Beer I promised you ?


    I am literally terrified.

    (not really) As ever, the Carebear Segment of the player base is proving themselves more psychotic than the worst pirate or griefer. No Hulkageddon seems to go by without some regrettable mentally challenged bear trying to scare me with empty threats, I’ll just stick up a screenshot without further comment (note that I don’t actually have a family).



    Keep Crying!

    And finally to complete this lengthy update, I present to you a few precious salty drops.

    Now this is a thread.
    [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.

    God damn. Some of those mails are both hilarious and saddening to read.

    For example the person who wrote the tick tick tick mail. Does he really believe anyone would take him seriously? or is he actually deluded into thinking he's a l33t haxor?

    While its really funny to see these mails I cannot help but wonder at the intelligence (or lack thereof) displayed by these people.

    Not the same person. Helicity got banned for saying that Soundwave should go die in a fire, during the whole Incarna rage.

    we require more pubbie madness!

    I love the rage people get when they get suicide ganked, earlier in the year my corp had gone a ganking spree and pretty much ganked about 500 macks/hulks in the space of 2-3weeks and the tears we got off that were amazing

    It's ok, so far I've been:
    -a dev
    -a dev alt
    -a goon alt
    -a Hulk BPO owner
    -an industrialist mastermind
    -a terrorist
    -a real life psychopath

    Not sure why it's so hard for people to conceive of "asshole pirate that enjoys griefing" but meh.

    You'd be surprised what some people think their skills are worth. My youngest son used to own in FPS games 9still does, really) and he's always get these dumbasses threatening him with ZOMG tracert, finger, and spoof. Because you know watching the movie "The Net" makes you a legitimate hacker.

    I told him to taunt them into ragequitting. He's pretty good at that, too. Now if he can learn to be a bit subtle, he'll collect tears and rage by the bucket.

    I have lost five hulks to you assholes.

    Emergent gameplay my ass. This game has become one big griefer fagfest.
    You are destroying the spirit of the game and you can just because of shitty gameplay mechanics.
    PVP should be kept in nullsec where it belongs. I have a group of 12 friends and family members who play eve and we have been fed up a long time.

    Cant afford another ship, let alone paying some ransom you probably wont honor.
    You have ruined this game for us. This shit just isnt fun anymore.
    11 of us have decided to quit eve so you will have to find someone else to harass.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your modest one time fee?
    Im sure my friends will want to know...

    hi. Just want to let you know what you did, because I think you do not have idead what you doing.

    Yesterday I have paid and reactivated my account in this game.
    I was mining in my Hulk when you and Feraelina destroyed my ship. I lost all I had. You think it was fun. This is fun for you killing innocent people in expensive ships in High Sec ? Im leaving the game.

    Dont want to spend days, weeks, months mining to earn money to buy another Hulk. Bye. Have fun killing everyone.

    Why are they so fucking obsessed with mining? That's what I can never understand? It's like they think it's all there is to do.

    You should... That guy is devious beyond any measure you can imagine.

    I've been stuck with the 'tick tick tick' thing in my head all day. It's fucking supposed to have a 'tack' in there, and it's driving me crazy.

    I think making kids live with the fact they were raped for their whole life is worse than ending their life. At least if they're dead they don't have to live through that.

    death is absolute while you can attempt to get help to repair emotional scars.

    which is what all of these poor hulk miners should do.

    I finally broke through my unreasonable lack of participation (four years and not a single attempt) and failed to bring enough ammo to take down the Retriever and the pod. I almost cried sitting there waiting for CONCORD with no ammo in my guns and the poor, defenseless pod on my overview...

    Damn. 399 posts. I have to save the next for something worthwhile. Guess it will be a long silent time...

    Someone make a Mittani poster with the tagline
    "Why am I sponsoring Hulkageddon this year? I really want those Hulk pilots to skill themselves for better ships!"

    I never made it out of high sec first time I played this game, tried mining and missioning, thought it was pretty dull, then quit after like a month. Second time around I joined a corp and pvped, game seemed a lot more interesting after that.

    Same.

    Also if you haven't already PGL, mail that banker, he'll refund you for that game.

    Yeah but I see new players asking about mining all the time. Is mining superawesome in other MMOs or what's the deal here?

    For comparison, there's a guy at work here that I introduced to EVE and he basically spent his first year mining for a very good reason: he was studying for some qualification, and EFT+Mining was a fine playstyle for him, since he was basically taking a 10-second break every few mins to move his ore, then back to the books. Now he's passed his exams and he's an enthusiastic ganker. So I can see it has a niche as a "mostly AFK" way to play, justify skilling and make a little ISK playstyle. That's fine and sensible.

    But what the hell is attracting so many new guys? They can't all be doing home study.

    There are a few reasons:

    Aversion to pvp
    ISK generation
    Extremely casual playstyle
    Can be done solo
    Ignorance

    I reckon the most common reason would be a mixture of isk generation and ignorance, as far as they know this is a way to make money and they're either too dumb, lazy or unable to do/know about missions, incursions or plex sites.

    Mining in other MMOs is a terrible game of running around and right clicking on resource nodes in the world, but it can usually make a bit of money.

    I think it's the builder mentality, tbh. Some people look at eve as a sim city or second life. To them, PVP is to be avoided while they build their dream world or something. I know I'm doing a bad job of putting this to text. Basically I can't get it, either.

    I do have a hulk pilot but I think I log him in maybe 5% of the time. Pretty much for the reasons you pointed out. I can half AFK and get many of the materials I need to build my next ship while I watch a movie or something.

    A lot of people enjoy creating stuff, and not just see them explode.

    When I was playing EvE, mining was my number one activity to do. It required little to no paying attention especially if you have a brain and put some tank on your Hulks and Orca to make sure you are not a soft target for gankers. I enjoyed being able to create almost all I need my self, the only thing I never got into was T2 modules/ships.

    Sure there are other ways to make ISK faster in empire (incursions), but for some people being able to mine, then research, build a product and then sell/use that product is a lot of fun.

    Or they might be such psychopaths that they enjoy working IRL and in a video game.

    As Yahtzee (from The Escapist) once said, EVE is like working a second job that you pay to have.

    I've done the industry thing myself and found the profit margins so slim, tedious and unstable that I couldn't possibly bear doing it for months on end. I can't imagine anybody goes from frigate mining to capital production and still finds the whole process rewarding in any way that would make sense to me.

    I my self did not enjoy mining until I was able to do it with four accounts using three Hulks and a Orca.

    It's a roleplaying thing for the main part. People come into this game and make a career choice. Most want to be a pirate or a builder or something that sounds cool to them at the time. After they blow up because they shot someone in highsec and figure out that making stuff in eve requires capital and researching the market, they get stuck mining and missioning in highsec. It's the fault of small corps that accept anyone and really don't know any better.

    It is because CCP never really advertises 0.0 to them or manage to make low sec work. Also most of those corpleaders like my self are just carebears who enjoy pvp on the side.
