I wonder what happened with that?


Didn't you all write up like one lame paragraph and get your F1-monkey botnet to vote for it? Not sure what CCP did but I'd cancel the whole project as a result.

We're sorry our story was more popular than yours.
Actually no we're not.

Makes sense. Didn't TMC get banned on reddit for a similar reason? Shame really, the TMC articles usually got up voted anyway because of decent quality, don't know why they felt they needed to bring in the upvote brigade.

Old habits die hard, I guess.

Ahh this again. It is true there was no need to up vote each others articles to support them because they were very popular and were always on the front page regardless. That was before some butt hurt script kid with about 20 dummy accounts setup a script to auto-down vote any thread we submitted there. If your thread hits -15 down votes if I remember correctly, the thread is automatically hidden. Effectively making the thread unavailable to be found before any could actually read it.

We of course tried to have moderators and admins look into it, but nothing was done. So that was when we started up voting each others articles to try and counter the scripted down voting. Difference was we were manually going to each one and pressing the up vote ourselves, no automation doing it for us. So we found a way to balance it out, despite no one banning the scripted down vote bots.

Things were fine until one of the writers from TMC quit and then went to an admin on Reddit and said we were vote gaming. So they handed out Shadowbans on all of us. Meanwhile, nothing was done to the scripted down vote bots. Such is life I guess.

I hope maybe that might shed some light on that situation.

And people say TMC is a CFC propaganda site.

Some say, that when mention of his name is at an all time low, a NPC forum alt will rise to speak it once more.

Mittani....

Others say, that when the nerves of his back have settled from pats, a NPC forum alt will rise to pat it again.

Mittani....

Still others say, that when Eve Online needs a bad guy, they turn to him.

Mittani....

But no others say that there needs to be a movie made about him, except for a NPC forum alt of

Mittani.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

As far as sinking a bunch of money into a movie about a group of try hards who think someone else pushing a disband button is an amazing story...

Ahahaha ahahaha... It is a very boring story. There is a thousand other stories in this game that offer something far more entertaining. Now if you want to talk about a RnK story, sure. That is something I would buy a ticket, tub of popcorn and sit in a theater seat for.

edit: The monolith represents The Mittani's ego. On second thought, why do we need an EVE remake of 2001?


I wouldn't force prisoners to watch that.

Should be about as unsavoury and nasty as "The Triumph Of The Will" Leni Riefenstahl 1935.

If there would be a movie it would be like a gay porn staring an all male cast utilizing GIANT phallic object in extream ways.

Explosions *never* happen instantly in a Michael Bay film. Bit of trivia: CCP licensed TiDi technology from Mr. Bay.


Thank god they didn't license the lens flairs, too. Shocked

A movie is an excellent idea, but it should be broken up into a series. When signing up on SA, unless you uncheck the box, you will be signing up for a monthly mailing of VHS tapes for the low price of only $39.95 a month.. You must sign up for SA, as that is the only way to buy the movies.

See Bio for isk doubling rules. If you didn't read bio, chances are you funded those who did.

They would bring it in under the Death Wish franchise as that's what the audience would have after watching 5 minutes of it .....

The Goonswarm movie must be directed by Ewe Boll. He's the only qualified for their level of greatness.

Gawd, talk about imposing cruel and unusual punishment upon the world's population.

Basically anyone who looks at it would end up like this.

That's a good idea. A mini-series. Or maybe a reality show, kind of like "Jersey Shore" or that one with the octuplets.
