Bumblefck was pretty darn good but then he went away, and I think he might be back soon.

♥ the Bumble.


Please, make him come back.

New Eden needs him.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

They tend to have a sense of humor that I can appreciate.


On a related note, I miss Ezwal.


Wasn't he the one that got banned from CCP for post infringements, lol.

You do!

So does that mean you're trying for the position yourself?

I am what I am. I am who I am. To me that is enough, let posterity determine the title given, theyll be wrong anyway so it all doesnt matter....Twisted


But no. This is just a question. Its not the regular questions we see over and over again. I try to come up with original things, its hard in a closed system though. People tend to homogenize after some time in the same place and thinking tends to grow along the same channels a lot too. Then as opinions and time changes so do how people look at things. This is just one of those things that, other than ISDs giving us names or numbers, are just peoples opinions. Which to me are just interesting of their own.

Have you heard anything I've said?

You said it's all circling the drain, the whole universe. Right?

That's right.

I don't have numbers on number of threads closed that were started by one person. That might be a fun side project for a rainy day.

As for greatest troll, couldn't say. I've seen a lot come and go, and yet i'm still here. I'm glad you all appreciated our sense of humor though. Big smile

If it happens that would be cool. Thanx for the reply.

And yes I kinda do think Rain got it right that you ISDs are the best trolls around. Lol

So I guess I don't understand.

Thread after thread of constructive criticism get locked yet this thread which discusses moderation does not? Mainly because the ISD are getting a kick out of it?

The in-game nonsense is bearable. Usually the result of something that could have been avoided. It isn't arbitrary, it is a quite honest system. But the forums? It used to have content but now just consists of a bunch of mutual hand jobs.

Well enjoy I guess. First time a game has lost my money because of its forums but so be it.

Well Id say that other than its a subjective say so from the ISDs part of its that Im trying to actually posit an legit question out of curiousity and that this thread hasnt deevolved in a flame thread like some. It also isnt really about moderation in the sense that most threads in here do.


People are free to say who they think are some of the great trolls on the boards that they know of personally. Not defend or attack others because of it. Which thankfully noones done. That you dont understand this subtle but distinct difference is fine, your allowed to be confused on this but its not hard to understand imo.

But to be the one to get rid of you from Eve because of this, well thats too bad. Dont worry I dont want your stuff.






Oh and the DAY an ISD gives ME a handjob dont yall worry Ill be posting pics!!!Twisted

Sometimes the threads are moved. (i.e. to F&I, OOPE etc.)
Sometimes they are locked for redundancy.
Sometimes they aren't nearly as constructive as the poster thinks. Unsurprisingly, these often get the FFS type reaction.

I've never before heard of someone leaving a game because of its forums. Shocked

Bloodninja was a hero.
Back in those days, people knew the difference between "trolling" and "flaming". Cry

I think the biggest troll in the history of Eve so far has been CCP Fozzie... Bear

Fozzie. He's not trolling us, he's just mad.

I saw him in Thera on Sisi... right after Thera was open for testing. I showed up just to look around, I was on a Sisi kick for a little while.

You get to do whatever you want on Sisi, and I decided to roll out with 10 ships at once whenever I was on. Sometimes it was in a mixed gang of dreads, a carrier, and subcaps in the Null pvp system, I forget the name. But for my trip to Thera I went full subcap. Restrictions, you know.

4 Vindicators, a Kronos, 2 Guardians, a boosting Damnation, and 2 of something else, I think it was Falcons. Because come at me bro. I don't roll like that on TQ, it's purely a Sisi gimmick gang.

I knew Fozzie and a handful of other devs were docked in the "bottom Jita" station in Thera, and they were engaging players for fun. I undocked and put myself wayyy outside of docking range, it was like 350km straight up, between the stations. Basically a balls-out challenge to anyone on grid.

Fozzie poked his head out in a Proteus and went back inside. I hung around for a while and left out of boredom a bit later.

And then the input broadcast ban was announced soon after. Like, two or three weeks.

I don't use input broadcasting, it's just ten raw clients straight-up. But I have a feeling I trolled Fozzie into pushing for the ban. I hear he's one of those solo l337 PVP types.

So uh. Yeah I've never told anyone about this, but I guess this is as good a time as ever to apologize to multiboxers for trolling Fozzie.



Dug through old screenshots. Here's the dread/subcap mix (Vindicators later became Vigilants)

Subcap gang hunting for unidentified structures dated 10-05

This continued through:

The Thera gang, eating battleships on undock before they could de-agress dated 11-15

Multiboxing update is dated 11-25
Quote:
Over the last few weeks we have gone through an internal review process to clarify what exactly the EULA and ToS require in terms of input automation

Checking to make sure multiboxing still worked, dated 12-01
Trollboxing extra hard 12-04
again 12-05

Fozzie in a Proteus?? So the guys in CCP DO love the T3Cs afterall. I'm guessing this means they won't be getting nerf to the ground anytime soon.
