Maybe you missed the answer: my play time does not affect how poorly thought out and out of place your ideas are.

Most of the ideas are taking what is already in the game and modernizing the presentation to today's standards using the already created CCP technology.

I clicked on the link to your newbie skill plan and got a warning about a trojan / keylogger from the CCP site you might want to look into that. Message below.

…and catastrophically out of place in the game and poorly thought out.

LMAO. Yeah, you know those development credentials you're trying to use as an argument for… something?

You just gave them a classic Unforgiven-style gutshot followed by a swig of water. Lol

You'd think that for how long that link has been Tippia's sig, CCP would of banned him if it actually was a keylogger...

Now, now. It's only been, what? 5 years since the Audrey Bitoni spam wave, and 4 years since the new forums arrived (not counting the false start in… was it early '11?).

Seems like yesterday. P

Oh I agree but its still odd I got the standard warning then got the new message but all the same looked up the corps he owns and the style of play he is using so now I know to ignore his contributions. I figured he could be posting to the thread so he could get his sig posted more often as click bait.


He has spent at least 5 years hunting noobs, Jesus. Lols no wonder he wants no changes to help new players. LOLS. At least I can move on now.

No more Tippia for me.

Which corps are these, and what is the play style I'm using? Also, why would any of that have any impact on the attention you give to my contributions (much less to the contributions themselves)?

Troll harder. Lol

Anyway. I think I can safely write this one of as an almost unprecedented crushing victory if my opponent admits defeat as thoroughly and quickly (if indirectly) as this.

Guys honestly don't even give Tippia a response or ammo, is sole purpose on these forums is to **** people off. The more you respond the more you just play into his hands.

Nah. I feel they are entirely reasonable questions given his senseless and unreasoned dismissal of my posts, especially since it, along with the various ad hominems he chose to use, only seem to be there to cover up his inability to actually address the points I was making.

The fact that it happened so quickly — going from “you're out of touch” to “you are a cyber-menace” in less than half a dozen posts — is what makes it an almost unavoidable conclusion that he just gave up on all attempts at discussion pretty much from the get-go. Meanwhile, his ideas remain either pointless or harmful, and also wholly unrelated to the original topic (since that one turned out to be a complete no-sell too).

…and yet you brought them up rather than stay on-topic. But sure, if you want to go back to talking about how EVE is incompatible with F2P then we can do that — you just have to actually address the points being made rather than lash out against the person and generally make a fallacy showcase out of your posts.

Oh, and it's “his” by the way.

the only thing you must know is this

eve is a N+1 ( or +2) game -> free to play -> unlimited alts -> falcon/booster alts everywhere and unlimited amounts of gank accounts/alts with max SP.

now take your guns, press F1 and go make 2bil in a single day of pve -> buy plex and the ships for pvp.

IF that doesnt work, dont drink your slurpies,dranko,redbull,monster,megacafféélatéé + cream and pay the month fee...
it's not expensive (aslong as you enjoy this game)

now.. back to DEEZ PLEX PRICES ARE TOOO DAMN HIIGGHHH

Kind of hoping ISD just closes this thread.

OP is obviously one of these "legend in his own mind" types who thinks he's a genius but of course has never actually put his own chips down and bet on it.

F2P is a terrible idea, vast majority of the EVE community appears to agree, go find another dead horse to whip on.

How about thinking instead free to play - free for noobs or new players. Slight change in your thinking and opening your mind might give you a better game with more people to do things with or to.

How does it in any way make the game better, and what makes you think it'll actually bring in more people rather than just more alts?
