Unfortunately, it's time for the interdiction to end. The details of why will be explained at the State of the Goonion, but I want to give everyone a heads up. Bounties and reimbursement will be valid until the end of the weekend: you can get in one last killfrenzy before we shift gears into something new. Sadly this post needs to be rushed out due to the timeframe and so its not very good; I will do a better summation of our murderous campaign later this weekend.


You should pull any buy orders for oxygen isotopes you have up, and immediately dump any oxygen isotopes you have into existing buy orders. The goal here is we're going to nuke the market, leave pubbies holding 1400 isk oxytopes as we ride out into the sunset. We dumped the Goonwaffe stockpile last night, and I believe most people have sold theirs by now, but try to make sure no goons are left holding the bag. As a part of this, don't leak this post - we want as many pubbies buying our overpriced oxytopes for as long as possible.





We'll have more details on our next plan to murder empire soon, but if you have the bloodlust and just need your fix, I recommend thrasher podding in empire (or, of course, just keep murdering mackinaws with catalysts).

Basically, move a stack of these to a safespot in Jita, Perimiter, Amarr, Rens, or any other major pipe that pods may pass through. You should stage either with an orca, or a non-10 non-goonwaffe alt as anyone who can get freely shot in jita will, and most other places aren't so friendly either.

7x 280mm artillery (2 rounds of RF Phased Plasma per gun - just in case you have a chance at a second shot)
3x sensor booster (scan res)
1x istab
1x gyrostab

If you want an alt for this (you should; doing this on an alpha clone owns) see this thread: https://goonfleet.co...clone-thrasher/

Sit an alt on the Jita-Perimiter stargate at zero. Whenever you see a pod autopiloting (warps in at 15km), board your thrasher, activate sensor boosters, and warp to that alt at zero. Lock the pod, and alpha it. Warp out as soon as you can, but be aware you'll get podded yourself frequently; don't use implants, and check your clone EVERY TIME before you undock. This was easier before the patch, but now the pods won't sit in space. You can also alpha shuttles, and hope they're carrying something valuble.

You can try this on the jita undock but there's probably some jerk in an rsb'd ship that will instantly kill you once you land.

Should I stay or should I go now?
If I go there will be trouble
An’ if I stay it will be double
So come on and let me know!

Guys, guys, guys, We are totally going on a war footing for the invasion of Branch. We won't have time to play with the Ice Miners. You guys are TOTALLY SAFE! Twisted

Meanwhile, in other news, ice miners are still mining ice.

Guys, I know this might sound like a crazy, paranoid, conspiracy-theorist idea... but I think they might be trolling us somehow.

No really, I can also confirm that Goons will not be shooting any more ice miners.

It is safe for all ice miners to return to your ice belts.

Enjoy the boredom that is called Ice Mining.

So Kyt, what you're saying basically is that "we don't need to gank them anymore, ice mining is its own punishment"?

I can get behind that.

Yes, Ice Mining is a big punishment, we use it on our new recuits that dont get in CTAs.

But if they dont get the hint after mining ice for 2 weeks straight, then we make them mine velspar in null for a month.

At that point if they still dont get the message, then we send them to red space to go afk in a cloak ship for a year or two.

We love you pubbies, for buying into our catchpenny scheme. Once the stockpiles were siphoned away from the large holders, the outcome was inevitable. Now Goon financiers are laughing all the way to the bank.
