As title. What is your favorite thing that is "totally true", but is in fact complete bollocks?

Mine is probably that corp CEOs are in it to profit off the grunts via corp taxes.

Every myth about my alliance.

Alternatively, that the very act of jumping into low/null is met with swift, immediate and unavoidable death.

Actually many high sec corps are like that.

My myth would be the notion that pirates are antisocial ******** 12 yearolds while pve players are friendly, social and mature. Generally it tends to be the other way round.

More people are needed!

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

I know, right? It's so hilariously and blatantly obviously false that it's almost amazing that it has become such a myth. Lol

…in other words: always, because short of quitting, it is impossible for them not to due to how the game has solved the whole character advancement problem. So it's a myth that they can't.

That more risk necessarily implies more reward.
