Hulkageddon V Mining Permits
Von: Andski
Gesendet: 2012.05.03 11:34
An: Wilma Shakespear,


It appears that you were the unfortunate victim of a Hulkageddon gank. As you may have heard, Hulkageddon V has been ongoing since April 30th, and it is well-known that hundreds of Hulks are destroyed during these campaigns. Hulks are notoriously weak and the poor state of T2 hull insurance makes these ships extremely costly to lose for the victims, while extremely cheap to kill for the gankers.

This is where I come in. I am the Goonswarm Federation director in charge of managing the Hulkageddon campaign, and I deal with selling Mining Permits. The purchase of a Permit ensures that Hulkageddon participants do not target you - should they do so, any winnings they may claim are immediately void, and your loss will be FULLY reimbursed at current Jita prices!

To purchase a Mining Permit, send this character 250 million ISK with the reason "PERMIT" and you will shortly be listed under our exemptions list (characters that Hulkageddon participants must set blue for the duration of the campaign) and any Hulk losses you lose to suicide ganks throughout the remainder of the Hulkageddon campaign will be reimbursed, provided the following conditions:

- Any losses within 4 hours of payment will NOT be reimbursed. Wait 4 hours after payment before resuming your mining! The reason for this is that gankers have some leeway to keep their contacts up to date with that spreadsheet, and cannot be expected to continuously check it.
- The loss must be in HIGH SECURITY space (0.5 security or better!) No party on your killmail may have an active war declaration against your corporation/alliance or be a member of your corporation.
- Any indication of MACRO USAGE will void your request. Goonswarm Federation does not intend on supporting botters.
- Fraud will not be tolerated. Anyone suicide ganking their own Hulks to collect payouts through this plan will be denied payment.
- Only characters that send 250,000,000 ISK to "Andski" will be listed on the no-kill list! Alts are not covered, unless you send this character that same amount of ISK from those alts!

For reference, your character name will be listed on this exemption list:

Happy mining!

im selling mining permits for only 175 million thats a 75 million isk savings with no gurantee your ship wont be ganked ..lmao

Whatever you do, don't argue with the GOON. It's their game, not yours. Anything they do is fine. Anything you do is wrong. That's the law of EVE. Just petition it and CCP will tell you so.

Pay the fine and GOON will gank you anyway, then laugh at you and talk about you at the next Fanfest.

Old scam is old.

The part about botting is simply hilarious.

There's a million angry citizens looking down their me.

if anyone "buys" a mining permit from GS deserves to get a mining permit. Whereas GS will be permitted to mine your wallet.

Are they still wheeling out that old scam? Well I suppose if they spam it to enough mailboxes some mug will go for it.

And why this isn't used as fuel for the boost hulk tank topics is beyond me....

Goons dont support botting...



And we don't. Botting, RMTing, and other douchie things are prohibited from even being discussed on Goonfleet services (forums, mumble, in game chat, etc). In addition, if we do find botters, they are free kills -- being blue won't protect them.

Can you say that about all the highsec industrial corps that are quite literally thriving on the backbone of botted minerals?


Confirming: Goons are more ethical than Highsec Miner Pubbies.

Even if it is legit (this sort of "protection" scheme is as old as dirt), it's basically how mafias make their money.

The solution is to get a bigger gun. Hire it, fly it, whatever. Get some guns any way you can.

You should probably join them. Make it a ritual double biomassing. But before you do, can I haz your stuff?

The exemption list is empty I wonder why :D

Because nobody has purchased a permit as of yet.
