Suddenly are still playing just not as Suddenly alliance.

A few corps jumped ship and went to Marmite where they absorbed the failness of Tora Bushiod, RIP for those guys.

Others went to Petition Blizzard w/ Psyco Monk

and others who I know are still executing amazing shenanigans - I know this cause I just bought a Kronos from 1 of them after he "lifted" it off an unsuspecting corp applicant.


And here I tought this post was gonna be all about how you single-handedly made them go away....
Missed chance there bud.

Also; cry more about Tora and Marmites, we've been out of the spotlight for too many minutes now.

Bluing the wrecks denies the chance at aggro fu and getting kills (the real motivation after all) plus the Free Wrecks channel is alive and well and having lot of people in it these days.


Hopefully they have gone onto more creative butthurtery.

Nah, they were fine for quite a while after that. Eventually some alliance leadership had important things to do and others went inactive and it just kind of went downhill from there, especially when the Orca was nerfed and the older members started getting bored and leaving.

I will say that I've seen ninjas a few times lately. I need to sec repair often, and since Odyssey changed security mechanics favoring highsec missioning over low/null cycle ratting, I've been doing that again. Had one ninja scan me down three times in fifteen minutes recently. Poor guy, he just wants fights and I wasn't looting anything even before he showed up.

I wished him well.

There is a difference between being in the spotlight because you deserve respect, and being in the spotlight with Michael Jackson syndrome, where everyone looks at you thinking "how could someone that used to have talent go so terribly wrong?"

I had left a bit before the VP incident so it's hard to remember the exact why's and when's... really a shame that the mechanics changed so much and their playstyle isn't really feasible anymore.

Rest assured, this niche is being filled.

The Corp may have dried up, but the participants still play on (just in random corps now). For what we do a 'well known' corp name doesn't really help one get shot more often.

What did they do to the Orca? I know it was used to drop ships for -10 chars, that not possible anymore?

Your buttlove for Vegas has no place in a real C&P thread.
Get back to your trash thread where people will continue to ignore your nonsensical drivel.

IOW: GTFO

Used to be if you flipped a loot can the only person that could shoot you was the can owner and his corpies, if any.

So a Ninja would scan down a L4 mission runner, warp in, flip a can, and wait for the mission runner to shoot at him.

This would be done in a cheapfit bait ship, usually a frigate.

If the mission runner shot at him, regardless if the bait ship died or not, the Ninja could now shoot back.......and would warp to an Orca sitting at a safe, grab a combat ship (pvp fit obviously) and then warp back to the mission runner and proceed to kill him. Sometimes a partner/alt would come along for logi backup (or just to salvage and loot the wreck).

Remember, the only one that could shoot you for stealing from a wreck was the original wreck owner (and his corp members, if he had any). Most mission runners are alone out there.......

Now, with Crimewatch, anybody, anybody at all can shoot at a canflipper/ninja looter for 15 minutes, and, in fact, many people hang out in mission areas waiting to pounce on poor ninja looters/canflippers.

Woe....woe is them.

Cool

Everything in EVE is a trap.

And if it isn't, it's your job to make it a trap...:)

While it has thrown a bit of a wrench into the whole ninja-baiting it's not as terrible as some think it is. You CAN still use an Orca, but just not as easily. For example, say the mission-bear shot at you. If he's in the first room of the mission you just have your Orca warp through the first gate, jettison a combat ship for you, you board it and commence shooting. Or, you warp off to your Orca pilot in space and do the ship swap there. The difference is that if you return fire you lose the option of boarding or stowing a ship directly from the Orca's ship maintenance bay. I still find that boarding a jetted ship is just about as easy as swapping ships from an Orca in most instances.

The suspect flag issue is not really that big of a problem so long as you don't use a station to swap to your gank ship. Nobody can "camp you" in deadspace. That being said, when I've been shooting at a carebear in a mission in the past it was far and few between that he could even get a corpmate to come to help him, much less some random in local. Sure, he could quickly try to fleet them and have them assist, but in most cases by the time the cavalry arrived the carebear would be in a pod and I'd be long gone, loading the loot into my Orca, and heading best speed to Jita for a fat paycheck.

The profession is alive and well. Their organizational structure is a bit neglected, but they're still out there, they still know who each other are, and they're still making use of those contacts. Our family of professions has several interlocking communities and the Ninjas these days are also often also Belligerent Undesirables or New Order Knights or part of any number of smaller organizations.
