[Event] in Support of Crime Spree

Hello there scumbags.

So there I was one lazy Sunday afternoon, bored and drained from other interweb activities and as my mouse hovered over the Eve launcher I had a ping of a sensation I had not felt since I had returned to the game a whiles a way back.

I felt a distinct lack of interest in clicking the log in.

Dear God, So soon? Why? I decided to ignore the reasonable logic of my mind and logged in anyway. I was determined to root out the cause of this frustration. Why Lord? Why? Why was I so bored with the game I had loved for so long? Then as I was looking at my combat log the obvious struck me like a drunken husband returning home to an ill made sammich.

No kills, for so long. Damn- had it been that long since I had danced with the devil of the 800mms? What had I been doing with myself. Industry. PI. Playing the market.

gulp.

Incursions.


I felt dirty. Dirtier then the state of the oft forgotten sock beneath a teenage boys mattress. And as I looked around me my brothers and sisters, I saw that I was not the only heathen that had bathed in the murky quagmire of incursion isk- Such Ill got gains as had never before tarnished the dark corners of space. And do you know what I thought to myself my bastardly brothers? Time for a cleansing.

A seed of an idea began to form in my mind as I gazed upon all the faction battleships and orcas and jump frieghters and overly wealthy risk adverse players around me.

The seed was watered by the froth that formed in my mouth as I read of nerf after nerf after nerf of upstanding guardians of hi-sec reality checks.

I despaired. The Carebear mocked my e-emotions behind the ever vigilant gaze of Concord and danced and sang a merry song of kumbaya to the light of his mining lasers.

But in this desert of despair I staggered upon the Oasis that was the Skunkworks thread ( https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=82070&find=unread ) . Could it be that my vengeance could be but an Eve-O thread away?

I am in need of your assistance brothers, and I come to you humbly and in the nature of the Crime Spree.

I have a dream. I wish to see the harvest of my Idea and share with you the bounty of my toils and musings. Let us feast on the wrecked metal carcasses of the Carebear.

I have an idea and require the following.

***25-30 pilots willing to suicide their ships wonderfully into the annuls of Eve history.***

- For want of security I cannot state the requirements in terms of ships. Vague I know but the requirements are low and will be fleshed out more fully in a more secure setting. Let us put the required isk at a value not exceeding 100mil

- Griefer corps more then welcome.

- Alts of Alts of Alts like myself also welcome, So long as you are willing to listen to command for the briefest of times.

- Willingness and ability to react at shortish notice, probably around the early EU TZ but in all honesty could be anytime.

- Longing for e-glory and a hatred of the banal play-styles of people infected with the sickness of greed


Vague I agree and I have no doubt that I shall be the face of many a mocking cry, but believe me when I say this my brothers. I have seen the darkness and I have seen the light. I have dreamed a dream of an endless field of Carebear wrecks and a torrent of forum tears.

And it was good.

If there is interest in this idea and we could pull off this particular stunt it would be a joyous occasion for the denizens of C+P and for the crime spree that Skunkworks is putting on.

If nothing else it should be... how do the young kids say it... quite the lolz.

A noble proposal in the now-deleted OP. There's currently a campaign on, you should join it if starting your own is out of the question.

Also, there's more than one way to make isk off incursions. Pirate

Correct. No love shown from CEO. Whaa Whaa political correctness this, Whaa Whaa griefing is non kosher that. At least I got a token of appreciation off you fine gentlemen.LolLol

If there is any interest I guess check out Crime Spree channel in game. Maybe P. Monk can wave a magic wand and get it off the ground.

Will Update OP accordingly.

I possess no magic wand, but after talking with the OP, I fully support this venture. I'll make a call or two and see what I can do.
