I dont know i anyone posted this before, but in the german community a guys posted so true, that we all might shoot at each other, but we are one big family!
In my eyes its important that we share this, because THATS IT!

"Sometimes we forget that we are a large family of nerds actually loves Internet Spaceships. We smack when it comes to battles and epeens, but in the end we are still a family and that's what counts."

Thats for that!

R.I.P and


It’s all kicking off now, so we leeroy the remnants of our fleet and charge in the name of good fights, good lewtz and explosions!

We fought head to head and side by side in the virtual world.

You died in the line of duty in the real world.

May we meet in friendship in the next world.

I wrote a little bit more from a personal angle here in the devblog thread. Great links in there, especially the Nosy Gamer one.

I'll just leave this here

I had a few mails and one long conversation with Vile late last year. He had posted a thread about highsec improvements as part of his CSM work and I spun off a proposal based on it. He didn't know me, the proposal didn't affect him as a nullsec resident, but he took the time to open a chat with me to go into some detail about the proposal. We typed back and forth for a couple of hours about the idea and its mechanics, life as a CSM, life as a Goon diplo, and whatever else came up. He struck me as an extremely well-spoken and straightforward person who cared a great deal about this terrible game and the people who play it. It opened up my thinking about nullsec life, Goon culture, and generally lifted a bit of the dark pessimism we all color our fellow players with, if only as a survival tactic.

I didn't think much about it at the time, but thanks largely to this interaction I began exploring more of the game. Vile's conversation was the tipping point that kept me from unsubbing in boredom after another few months and meeting a bunch of great people I would have otherwise never encountered.

We exchanged a few more mails about the proposal and how things were going in the CSM. I looked forward to the mail where he would tell me that the proposal was in development.

Strangely I still do.
