So gives a ****?

Star Wars: the Old Republic may not be EVE. But I'll take the sound of dual blaster-pistols over "NURVV CLAOKING NAOW!!!11oneone!!" any day of the week.

I'm all for a reasonable discussion of the broken mechanics that were Inferno.

However, the original OP's boasts regarding exploits / bugs / illicit LP seem hard to ignore.

An above poster's comments regarding the future isk effect is worth consideration, titans for everybody in gsf?

I'm not necessarily looking for bans on anybody. But the cumulative effect of this seems out of kilter with intended game mechanics without doing something and I think a proactive approach is a viable alternative.

Richard Disturned follows his own rules. He's a man on the edge. He's going to be off this case if he doesn't calm down soon! We can't have any mad-dog posters in goonswarm.

banning NPC corps from the forums


Yeah, because my $14.95 a month is worth less than yours.

I'd recommend taking a break and letting some damage control take place here, from what I've seen your posts have only dug a bigger hole to dig out from for your alliance.


ruining your $14.95 a month is why we play, 70% of goons dont even pay a sub fee why should we care about yours

There's one golden rule to farting in the theatre. Don`t do it too loud.

Wondering about what happens when goons start blobbing titans, like everything else they start massing?

CCP should consider sending the Goonswarm finance gurus a commemorative trophy. They basically won EVE right there and only stopped because they still ironically have a conscience.

... The test quickly became even bigger than anticipated because upon release, FW turned out to have a bug that rewarded LP for both dropped and exploded cargo, doubling the rewards. So we went to work, sending hundreds of billions of ISK worth of highend minerals to Yulai to be blown up. Why Yulai? Anyone enlisted in faction warfare gets shot at by faction police of the opposing factions.


You've just made a bug abuse confession, say bye bye to your isk Blink

Math is not an exploit.

The fact is, for most of you, the explanation for what they did is so complex, it's indistinguishable from magic.

Or, in this case, "exploits".
