TL/DR: Meh.

If these archetypical lowest Internet common denominators, these mindless maggots, these parasites who have created nothing original, these [...], known as Goonswarm are now the highest class of "villain" in EVE...

...Then maybe the sandbox is indeed, in trouble?

I seem to remember when EVE had a higher class of villain, not this archetype of infantile meme-spewing basement-dwellers and their kid-ult godhead.

Whatever happened to those villains, the GHSC's, the Honorless Internet Jerks, TenTron and Company, to name just a few examples?

Have we truly become this banal? This shallow? This pathetic that all it takes to generate outrage is the likes of Goons?

Good God...Ugh

Fake-edit:

I wonder if I should AFK cloak an on-grid from the Jita 4/4 CalNavy undock on "That Day" and just let FRAPS run?

We're spawn-camping BoB now, so I guess that would affect things.

I don't expect much from ether burn jita or hulkageddon. And as for their death squads? well you can add me to your naughty list Goons, but I don't expect to see you anytime at all.

So you're spawn-camping your own leadership, then?

Well, hey, whatever gets your motor running.

As I stated in one of those behemoth threads almost a month ago - I used to not like The Mittani. I used to disagree with everything he stood for and I would lash out at him on the forums.

But that changed, once I slapped the derp out of my head. I came to understand what this is all really about and I think I may have found a new appreciation for things Goonswarm does.

So, yeah. I enjoyed the read this article provided.

Lol Yeah, they're not exactly pure evil, even though they try, but they have the numbers and organization to do nasty things past alliances couldn't or didn't. I think most alliances of that nature eventually fall apart due to infighting or personal greed, but due to the nature of GS not many of them would defy the group. They've already had at least two complete failscades which would have ended any other alliance, but keep rising up again.

This is going to be a difficult task, getting the parties to agree on quotas and the like. It should be easy enough for Mittens to control the CFC pets (those that don't tow the line, will find themselves reset and out the door). But what of those alliances in Tribute and Vale of the Silent? ISK always gets in the way of good sense.


Silly pubbie. Goons don't have pets. We have allies and friends who share our values.

Only failscading idiots like Raiden(dot) (may they burn in ... rest in peace) have "pets."

How do I get onto this goonswarm naughty list?

Hey Goons! You're momma is so fat that when she tried to dock into my Hel she didn't even fit
Your momma is so dumb she got kicked out of the School for Applied Knowledge
Yo momma is so fat she can't even float in space.

That's true, I suppose. It was one of their own people that decided to push the button on us rather than some spy or such.

We'll never know what might have transpired if not for that. Perhaps they would be crushing everyone under the most elite fleets - Titan, Tengu and Abaddon.

I thought fat helps you float? Less dense than muscle/bone, certainly.

I somewhat agree with this, personally I think that they're good for the game. They produce a shedload of content, make massive gaming headlines and lets be honest a game like Eve needs a good villain that everybody loves to hate on and Goonswarm fulfil the villain role with gusto and enthusiasm.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Gusto and enthusiasm, that's one way to put it :)
