And in case anyone has reservations over who in Goonswarm would be trustworthy enough: Solo Drakban

*Runs a fansite that supports thousands of players
*An integral part of Eve's longest-running Secret Santa program
*Trusted every year with up to $10,000 in real money donations, so he won't be tempted by a piddling trillion isk worth of ships
*Has excellent taste in fine Scotch


As a follow up to this, Goons are also the most philanthropic organisation in Eve. Every new Goon who joins is given hundreds of million of isk just for being able to join a fleet. They're then shown how to make vastly more money than they could in high sec and are able to take part in all aspects of the game, unlike those poor unenlightened players stuck in high sec or grubbing around for the scraps in low sec.

Goons create content, drive awareness of the game and assist new players. Isn't that more worthy than promoting gambling addiction?

Agreed...since you set the precedence of giving them to them...why not to at least the alliance that is making world wide news for you....

Observe a media counter action being launched.

Trying to put CCP in good light by showing an even more evil organisation.

Nice try, but everyone knows that CCP is controlled by Grroons anyway ;)

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

While I've only had a small hand in the goings on of goonfleetdottecom, i feel based on your precedent of giving worthless entities free crap, you should give me a stilleto bpo. I drive content and am far more philanthropic than somer.

Blink has a business plan and Goonswarm doesn't. Goons are small-fry nowadays anyway.



1. Get trillions worth of free ships from CCP
2. Sell those ships to the Eve community.

It's the same business plan that Somer has.

It's totally true! I used to PVP exclusively in a 1974 Pinto, but then GOONSWARMâ„¢ showed me the way!

It should be pointed out that, by giving Goonswarm trillions of isk worth of ships to sell to the general public, CCP will be distributing that money to more people, since our alliance unabashedly embraces the true joys of socialism. This handout will enrich the many, as opposed to the obvious handout being given to SOMER that will sit in the pockets of the few.

Where is the love for people who don't want to throw isk to a lottery corp or join the terrible goonies?

What more would we need?

A method to make it _appear_ as if the miserable unfortunates had some chance of getting the ships themselves for free.

Maybe instead of selling the ships directly, we can turn all of Delve into a giant scavenger hunt, with hidden clues to the location of the valuable ships. Anyone can get in for free of course, *if* they can make it past the entire CFC deployed in 24/7 gatecamps and roaming gank squads. Or they can pay 500 million for each 5 minutes of blue standings. It's an EVENT!

Perfect - all profit after reasonable expenses go to Solo's scotch fund so you know it for a good cause.

I could not agree more. The Goons have brought much more to EVE than SOMER ever could. SOMER doesn't bring new players to the table, they just entertain existing ones. Goonswarm deserves these tokens of blatant arbitrary favoritism as much as SOMER, if not more!

On a more serious note- if Weaselior is unsucessful with this thorough and logical request, whichever CCP employee thought this was a good idea deserves a t20-like whipping.
