It does have meaning, they themselves mine and bought up a vast majority of ore and other stuff on market. They then drive prices up while at the same time destroying the economy and the competition thus they will make insane amounts of profits. It all has meaning, this was never about "fun", fun is not to gank people afk or that are noobs, it is about the GREEN!


It is a pretty damn smart move.

Today, on Mythbusters:

"A well tanked Hulk is ungankable." We've busted this one a few hundred times, but the fans keep writing back. And what's an episode of mythbusters without a good explosion or two?

1) No one was whining.

I'm not slamming my fists saying CCP should do something to change it. It's EVE, so be it, as you can see I have never been ganked, so how the hell can I have tears for it.

I'm just observing that something has passed it prime and it makes me YAWN.
It's not news-worthy.


2) I wasn't repeating YOUR jab... I was repeating mine.

It's not just about the green. It's about the smile you get when you get an angry evemail. It's about the joy at seeing a death threat posted in a private convo.

The reason for Hulkageddon was here all along. *points to your heart*

Not empty quoting... because you know, the passe and creative thing.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

This is definitely flame war territory.

IMHO the problem with suicide ganking is that the punishment does not fit the crime. You can commit murder and the only penalty is a ship loss plus a reversible sec hit. Those who gank Hulks lose very little, and in fact, murder is profitable.

Many claim murder to be a mini-game. It's not the same level of play as the salvage mini-game at all. Murder has insufficient consequences.

Okay, fodder for the flame war along the lines of reciprosity for murder:
1) Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth: Concord should react with equal force, meaning if the ganker pods the victim, Concord pods the ganker. If the ganker only blows up the victim's ship, Concord stops with the ganker's ship.
2) Permanent, non-reversible murder count: you can still work off the sec hit as now, but your permanent count increments to a point that, if you keep murdering, eventually you will be Concorded if you set foot in Hi Sec.
3) Send NPC assassins after the murderers for some added fun. Think of it as PVE content for gankers.

Murder should have real consequences if carried in Concord proteced space. Targets of opportunity, like the famous shuttle with a bazillion PELX in it, fine, or some juicy freighter with 900Km3 of morphite, fine. Grudges/payback, fine. Griefing, fine. Lo/null as is. But murder with virtaully no consequences in Concord protected space is just not in the spirit of EvE's risk versus reward credo..
