goonfleet.com is a parody site. Our real site is http://goonauth.com/

a parody site for a parody alliance.


Why don't you own several regions of 0.0 about it?

True Story: I met the official Goonswarm Recruiter in a bar. He was actually the inspiration for my question in that thread.

If you haven't seen it, this thread, is what daisy cutta is talking about. Take a look and feel free to help out by talking about scams in EVE.

Goons = stale joke.

And anyone who falls for this, deserves to.

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

OP,

I expected a punchline ...

YES GOONS ROB YOU ...

Although, so do many people, they're just better at it than most.

Whoa, in my early EVE days, the smallish corporation I was in was offered absorption into Goonswarm. The loyalty of our members at the time prevented us from doing so, but looking back, it seems that our loyalty saved our asses lol.

Now look at me!


Youre in the DRF.. LoL..
OOooo Good job!

Goonswarm Federation is an honorable space guild and would never scam pod pilots of New Eden who would give all their belongings to a stranger.

This scam is old....like REALLY old. Probably the master Yoda of all scams.

On a sidenote - if you are PAYING to join a corp, you are an idiot anyways and probably do not deserve better than having some isk redistributed to people more qualified to invest them.







no sig...at all

Isn't that true of all scams that don't involve straight-up code exploits?

I think from a psychological point of view, Butteswarm feds are pointing out to CCP that a better way of getting people into 0.0 is needed.

So....
Goons are ( in their eyes at least) positive people, they hate bots ( Russian bots only it seems) and scam recruits ( and anyone giving them all assets and money deserves to get robbed).
Normal eve people i guess.

DRF are kinda neutral on their standings ( or they dont care), they dont hate bots, and dont scam recruits....

Really confusing :)

On the other hand, honestly, Goons should keep a list of how many people had fallen for that scam, i am really wondering if the old saying is true, "there is one born every minute".

The difference between DRF and Goons is like the difference between a frugal shopper with lots of coupons and shoplifter. YA DRF will squeeze out every penny they can out of the game, but they won't outright steal it. Goons on the other hand, will do a grab and run because they really aren't clever enough to balance a checkbook.

The first is annoying, but the latter is just outright ********.
