[quote=Xinivrae]He was saying that Eve's RNG is not a "true RNG", ergo Tippia is wrong for somewhat implying that the Eve RNG is a true RNG. Tippia was just addressing that it is, in fact, an industry standard RNG, and not a biased RNG as some people accuse CCP of using.

DeMichael is desperate to prove Tippia wrong.

I hadn't noticed.

CCP cooperate with blizzard, soon WOW and EvE become connected virtual worlds.

EvE isn't game, its style of living.

Oh man, where to start? There's a lot of Eve myth's alive and doing well in this game. Players have already posted quite a few. Here's a few more Eve Myth's :

WAI = Working As Intended

RNG = Random Numeric Generator

WIS = Walking In Stations

CSM (Council of Stellar Management) candidate selection and voting is fair procedure.

The 10,000 votes are legit.

CSM members accurately represent and convey the opinions of the player base majority.

All game mechanics are balanced and working as intended.

PvP players vastly outnumber PvE players.

Every career choice or player action in Eve is PvP.

Creating Eve account is consenting to engage in un-consensual PvP.

PvE content was created and designed strictly to fund PvP content.

All player characters in NPC Corporations are Alt's.

Only characters in Player made Corporations / Alliances benefit and contribute to Eve.

The Forums accurately represent the opinions of the Eve Community and player base.

There is no vocal minority.

High Security space.

Eve Is Real.

Guess I added more than just a few Eve Myth's to the list. Hell, I could have added more but I realized the amount of Eve Myth's in this game is like the Energizer Bunny. It just keeps going.....and going......and going....


said myth, not what you are butthurt about. lol what the christ

In case you can't be arsed to check facts before posting, which seems to be the case due to your reply and past history, here it is in condensed form :
…and the question remains: how is it a myth?

Oh, and yes. “Clueless” would be an apt description for those who consider the other things you listed as myths.

That PvP in Eve is fair.

Like lots of new players, I came to this game with preconceptions from other MMOs where I would battle one on one against some guy with a flag strapped to his back on top of a burnt-out building. Then when I killed him I would run across a field and slam-dunk his flag into my own flag in a totally not homoerotic way.

Then I came to Eve and it was like, if you are looking for a fight in a frigate they will bring a destroyer, if you go in a destroyer they will bring a cruiser, if you bring a battlecruiser they will bring a fleet of stealth bombers with warfare links.

Basically until you accept that PvP in Eve is about being as unfair and sneaky as you possibly can be you will be getting your a- rammed every time you go out there.

Actually, I once saw a Courier contract linked there to haul stuff from one station in Jita to another. I took it, because I have bookmarks set up, and could use the 20 mil ISK it paid (the collateral was 50 mil or something). When I peeked inside, it was full of capital blueprints and skillbooks.

I never even undocked with it, and made about 900 mil that day. Best Jita local contract ever.

During the whole Incarna debacle, it truly was. CCP managed to stanch the bleeding with two expansions as of late, but total active players haven't really recovered to the numbers they were pre-Incarna.

MMO deathslides are a lot like Dotlan slumps. Once they start happening it's very hard to recover.
