Your huge spergy post about us would indicate otherwise.

I love it when you miss the point so entirely, which is usually. To quote a famous phrase:

I think that was the point of the OP. Derp.

they do quite a bit few if any other alliances are really capable of.

what stands out most is honestly how free-spirited and hands off their culture can be, yet when needed, they buckle up hardcore and become one hell of a disciplined fighting force. it makes no sense but it works. I credit incredible leadership.

Mittani for CSM, ~my ceo~ ~commissar~

There were some amazing ~goodifghts~ when Raiden./PL attacked branch but they timed it so many people in US TZ couldn't get in. But we managed to get them with the loss of many drakes! Mittani must have some devious strategy to make sure we give them better than we got.

You do realize the folks posting on this thread aren't so stupid as to think Mittani amounts to anything but to Goons, and since Goons don't have the sense God gave to a goose, you're better off voting for a rock. Oh...you didn't have the sense to realize that. Point taken.

Right. They do this. ...but there's nothing preventing anyone from doing the same. They just don't. ...and actually I have to admit total ignorance because save side stepping a few scams and bouncing through a few bubbles, I really don't know thing one about 'em, but from what you describe it sounds like they are having fun. Whatevs. I'm sorry I wasted anyone's time who read any of my posts in this or like threads. It sounds like haters gonna hate sums it all up. I was in a fleet for whatever reason where mittens was FC one time and f*** that guy (i didn't even know who he was until months later), but otherwise /ignore

Oh. Him. He's the poster child for Anal/Cranial Inversion. He lucked into a situation he now calls his own. Most of his minions haven't been here long enough to know it wasn't him who did it all. It was the guy their website adulates as Adolph...as though bringing up that guy is intended to only extend threads...according to Mitt. But, hey. He's so like Mitt. His mom folds his underwear...still. Go figure.

Goons are the only thing left that create some drama in EvE (and they know how to use drama and visibility very well). Otherwise you'd notice how little else is going on.

Deklein was also given to them. They didn't work for it at all. Handed to them on a silver platter for nothing.



Confirming all CFC space was handed over pleasantly and with a handshake, Fountain, Fade, Branch, all of it, just handed right over, I know, I was there.

Trust me, I almost know what I'm doing.

The problem with goons is that they have a lot of CCP devs in their pockets and a lot of their directorate secretly works for CCP. Their former CEO is now in charge of security at CCP (Darius Johnson = CCP Sreegs). It doesn't take much to see that there is something fishy going on... Goons web developer SOLODRAKBAN has an interesting role in all this too. On an unrelated note the new eve website looks really nice...

Trust me goons might be good or might be bad but the average mining simulator pubby will never have the same pull as them. I think that miners and low sec pirates and industrialists and other boring carebear types should rise up and demand equal rights.

Andski, who I see is posting in this thread also, recently got CCP to make sweeping changes that puts newbies at risk of evil goon scam artists. All he had to do is make one thread and about 2 posts in it before a CCP dev came and responded. Ask yourself when is the last time you made a thread about suicide ganking and a CCP dev said anything... Ask yourself why he has this undue influence. Ask yourself why goons fly in CCP devs every year for a private goon summit in the US... Why did CCP Sreegs name his son Alex after The MIttani?
