Your Hulkageddon is very poorly timed, with the droneloot and meta0 mission loot nerf

I or one can't be bothered mining the minerals to build even a frigate let alone a battleship so I say fair play to those who can and aren't using macros and bots to do it.


Which is especially funny considering the number of null-sec "PvPers" who use bots themselves. Combat bots/macros, to be more precise.

What, you think those guys who sit inside warp disruption bubbles for 23.5 hours a day are really at their keyboards? Heck no, they just set up their bots to shoot anything that comes into range that isn't flagged the "right" color and walk away. Disrupt, web, shoot, disrupt, web, shoot. It's all done on autopilot, no human input required.

That's why I call them "Jellyfish" - no brain, just a big blob with a bunch of tentacles floating in space waiting to sting anything that blunders into them. They are the very essence of gate camps.

Not that I blame them, because sitting inside a bubble for 23.5 hours a day to guard your alliance's borders would make mining look exciting in comparison.

Give it up already. Nobody cares anymore. The days of HG ended with the Tier 3 ships.

I hear all this talk about ganking miners because it's "fun," or because people somehow find PVP "more exciting" than industry, or merely because they're "bored." I'm just not feeling it.

The truth is, miners harm the environment. Nature put asteroid belts out there in all their beauty and majesty, and miners just come waltzing in like they own the asteroids, like miners are somehow a more meaningful part of nature than asteroids. They then activate their mining lasers, increasing light pollution in black black space (not to mention galactic warming), and take the "ore" (that makes it sound so industrial--note they never call it "disintegrated natural asteroid") to their factories where more smoke belches and more chemicals wash down the drain and out come more orcas, retrievers, hulks, and the like.

There are plenty of man-made vessels out there from which to build whatever society needs. In the Tuskers, we not only fight the desecration of our asteroid belts, but we harvest scrap, supplies, even modules in perfect working condition, and from that we supply our needs.

Pirates don't kill asteroids, miners do.
