I am a rugby player... an odd breed of man that would happily punch an opponent one second, and laugh about the whole thing over pints and strippers later on.

Over my many years in EVE, I have learned to truly dislike Goons. I have left alliances and corps because they were going into alliances with Goons, and happily shot any Goon on site. The only good Goon is a podded Goon. (would you like to know more...?)

But this is a game.... and while I don't like the way the Goons choose to play it, I would happily buy a Goonie a pint and sit down to discuss and obsess over the game we both love.

RIP Vile Rat..... the game just won't be the same.

Well said.

Share the opinion of goons, but its all game we all share a love for. As I have also been involved with what happens there, and have bento some terrible places. Wishes with family at times like this who will have to live with it long after eve gone.

Sorry for your loss goons, what what I read he was not only a genuinely nice fellas in RL but also in game

A great influence in EvE, whether you were for or against him, has passed and will be remembered.

If ever a person passing deserved an honor, this man should have a station in empire in his name!

CCP, make it so!

Vile Rat, I didn't know you, but you played EVE and that's enough for me to call you a brother. May your family find peace.

CCP, honor him well.

Never met the man but sounds like any one would aspire to be more like him.
Thank you for your service to Freedom.
