Yea, I mean if we actually had influence over lowsec, people would stop using capital fleets and bling fleets the second we came home, and supercaps would be cowering in towers...oh...yea I guess that happens now doesn't it.

Debasing yourself like a wailing 5 year old child at Toys R Us not getting the new Teenage Pocket Power Man Lego kit did enough insulting of you to not really need any extra.

Hmm, yes. I think you misunderstood me. I was saying - in rather less smug terms than you - that I prefer the title to go to PL rather than complete unknowns just "whoring" the title. I am not in any way approving of the way you got it this time, because I do not, but at least I prefer it going to a proper, influential entity than a nobody.

That said, if a nobody *were* to take the title, they would have done it exactly the way you did it; repping up the Nyx at the Rifter event.

"The ISK value will be equivalent to that on the kill report."

Can you show me the bit in the rules that says the items could not be spawned to count?

"All kills which adhere to these guidelines will count, regardless of the circumstances surrounding them."

Oops.

I'm not from Texas Grarr, but hey, at least you're continuing your proud tradition of being constantly wrong about everything.

Can you actually argue about the topic at hand or are you going to keep beating around the bush?

Sure, its in this very thread, where the Devs said it doesn't count. I know english probably isn't your native language and all but try to follow along as best you can.


EDIT: Grarr currently is sitting in the SCL stream chat crying his eyes out to anybody who will listen, this is getting grim.

PvP contest

Player versus Player contest

Not Player versus Game manager / Developer contest

Not player versus environment contest (I'm sure you would have fared better at this then PvP tho)

Obviously players who are devs and are playing the game, are not actually players (do we count them as human intelligence NPCs then?). Or maybe they should be discounted because they (supposedly) welped a gang into another gang by jumping into them.

Obviously, that never happens in actual low sec. No in actual low sec people set up 130 man fleets around a static target expecting a 1000 strong opposition to come and shoot it (or to come into the meatgrinder), putting the entire thing into serious time dilation and engaging traffic control.

Yep that's what usually happens around lowsec, not fighting in gangs around gates or hotdropping, but this large fleet static thingie shooting stuff.

No wonder a lowsec alliance won the low sec contest, because they were doing very much low sec stuff.

WAIT A MINUTE?!

Edit: this thread is delivering btw, it has everything, even CCP devs trolling and ISD warning about trolling the next page /o\

We'd happily fight your lowsec gang if it would ever hold still long enough to fight us.


I assume you'll have a litany of reasons not to fight us on hand so use the spaces below to enumerate them.

Grath don't be a muppet, since when do you sit still against an opponent who can bring superior numbers? If we think we can have a GF without a ton of supers, or yes if we think we can gank some of you (which we do at times) we'll do it, as you know, is the usual MO in low sec.

I'm sure the shooting the 1000 peeps was fun, and it was well played, but you won the low sec competition for 2 reasons: CCP changed their own rules, and you did it with a nullsec style shootout (albeit a lot more fun since the 1000 idiots stuck around to actually die). The stupidity of the first is the reason you won with the second, and even your own guys have lolled at the 180 on the rules.

I loved HABIT/PL for the people, and the good fits and good fites, but the nullsec **** and moving around dragged on (also the periods without goodfites). Lowsec delivers daily, and the people are equally good tbh.

Edit: btw I need to update on nullsec politics atm, because I was under the impression there was a serious impasse and **** was a bit boring right now.
