At first I didn't pay much attention to the name but now I get it! Nice one CCP! ;-)

You "bow your head" right before the guillotine or sword are about to cut it off...

This one bowed 7 billion.

I always read it as bowelhead and get slightly disgusted at imagining that.

Thats not the interesting part. Only ONE person kill it.... but how? ;)

GCC is most likely going to get an overhaul soon.

Makes no sense ...

Multiple ships.

8 Catalysts, 8 Shuttles at safe.

1) Intial gank, Catalyst destroyed, GCC activated.

2) Warp to safe, board Shuttle, CONCORD flies to safe an destroys Shuttle.

3) Warp back to Catalyst, gank Bowhead again, CONCORD has to warp back to Catalyst, and then destroy it.

4) Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you run out of Gank ships/Safe decoys, the Target gets away, or you actually destroy the target.

At least, that's my understanding of it.

You cannot warp with GCC. That's about it other than CONCORD, and, obviously, GCC.

Honestly I would love for someone to explain this to me.... I'm not sure I even understand how this mechanic works.

Is he using an orca to board the ship?

Well ... that's not illegal in my eyes. It's kind of OP,
in some way, but it doesn't strike me as against EULA/ToS.

And moving around CONCORD is perfectly legal,
no matter what some morons say.

I've been there.
Sent several bugreports regarding the warp-mechanic during GCC.

My memory tells me that I have tried boarding a ship with GCC and it said No.

What my memory doesn't tell me, though, is from when it is.

I never used such tactics, so I have no idea.
I consider boarding ships as -10 in space to be rather boring and easymode.

(please note: as -10. not with GCC.)
