I don't hate em, but I do miss their golden days when they weren't so rediciously serious about their spaceships.

Now they are like uncle fester who you can't leave alone with the kids at Christmas.

Shame. R.I.P the crazy goofball Swarm, forever lost to twisted bitterness of space insanity

Hard to hate em (unless you wear a PInk hat).

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

I hate because I'm jealous. Their close knit community, comrodery and aloof attitude towards Internet spaceships are qualities I've been looking for in an alliance and not finding. And I've been looking since '08.

I don't like having to take roams so freaking seriously. I don't like the alliance leadership being killboard stats naazi's. I don't like being turned away from fleet participation because I can't fly the exact ship and specific fitting the FC demands.

The Goons will take any player in their alliance with them on roams if they can be useful In "some" way

For these reasons, I'm jealous and therefor I hate them.




Ugh, f*** you iPhone auto mispellr.

I don't hate Goons and I never have. I don't like many of them as people because a lot of them are just mindless sheep, but the group plays a valuable role in the universe. EVE needs an organization like Goons. They orchestrate events, put out a lot of media, are a magnet for scams and scandal, have a lot of notable people, ect. EVE needs a 'bad guy,' it used to be BoB, now its Goons, they are the big bad wolf that our ongoing story needs. Think about how often Goons are mentioned in EVE discussion compared to other organizations (especially discussions and articles that come from outside EVE players); they are an integral part of this game and its timeline.

I like to think of them as the Dark Knight(s) of EVE - hate them if you must, but they play a valuable role in this game.

Don't hate Goons. In fact, other than some interesting commentary on the forums, I don't care that they exist. Makes no difference to me.

I have absolutely no problem with Goons since, as far as I can tell, they have never directly impaired my ability to enjoy the game at all. To be honest I have probably profited indirectly from their actions because someone yelled 'Goon!' in a crowded constellation and people freaked out and docked up. I actually find the concept of the ice mining interdiction ops quite exciting and hilarious. It really does put things in to perspective in the game. Goons are just an aspect of the game, like CONCORD, customs, or any other group.

Were it not for the Goons and their disbanding of BoB, I might never have become interested in Eve Online.

Hopefully there is a difference between hating in the game and actually hating ;D It's fun to have an enemy in the game! They aren't a real enemy though, just more people!

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.

There are many and varied reasons that people hate the Goons. But when you boil away all the hype and strip away all the smack talk they banter about. You are left with one inescapable truth.

"Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss."


They are no different then BoB. They are the exact same thing. They are the very thing the purport the hate. The very thing they fought against. I think Friedrich Nietzsche explains what happened to the Goons.

"Be careful when you fight the monsters, lest you become one."

ummm...let me give this a shot.

Why do YOU hate goons so much?

Why DO you hate someone for playing a video game like it's a video game, and not SERIOUS BUSINESS?

I fought along side of Goons and against them, what i do like about them is they have always had a sense of humor and gave me alot of laughs. They've been apart of the Eve community for a longtime, wouldn't want to see them disappear. Blink

i dont hate a goon, i hate the goons. you cannot actively try and disrupt an entire play style because its fun. they pick on those that cannot protect themselves at all.

does this mean i hate the person playing the goon, no. but i still dont have to like their play style, but to each there own
