I honestly don't care about Jita Burn, not in a bad way. I find it interesting, but less entertaining than it could be. Personally, I think you should be less selective about your targets and really have some fun. If you're there to "Burn Jita" then you should do so. Right now, you're just "Ganking Freighters in Jita." <3


They're looking for moments of opportunity too; just watched them explode some faction-fit Nightmares. I'd post the kills but it looks like Eve-kill is having a nervous breakdown.

I'd don't know... As long as people continue to reply to this thread, I consider it a win on my part for instigating them.

Because I some how made it so they felt compelled to waste their time on this thread. That is seconds if not minutes of their precious life they'll never get back.

The only way you can win this argument now is to never reply this thread ever again.

This whole things is just for two reasons

1. To give the goonie babies some self stroking ego boosts.
2. For CCP to be reminded that they are Goons "Toys" - edited to avoid chat problems

Mittani is just another self righteous twit who can't make it in the real world. So he and his biatches dream up new ways to try and make themselves look oh so important..

This is just timed so that CCP knows that they do not run this game. And like most sandboxes a cat has come along done its business and left what a cat likes to leave in sand. Sandbox is fine but CCP has to grow up and realise that as long as they are goons toys, they will never take this game to the extent the should have. Their sandbox has become nothing more than a goon litter tray.
Still averaging 40k people on after all this time... Gratz for maintaining it, but its time to clean the litter tray out. This game needs to change to expand. And leaving the cats leftovers in the bottom of the litter tray isn't attractive enough.

Still amazing that the goons still think they are so great after all this time. They don't seem to realise that they have becoming a running joke amongst gamers worldwide.

I love this game, and would love to watch it expand its playerbase dramatically, but serious changes need to be made.


I bet if we bottled your tears, we could sell them for enough isk to control all the Markets in High Sec.

IRL I'm an extremely beautiful woman. Sometimes I go seduce average men, all the while laughing inside that every second with me, is a second of their precious life that they will never get back. When I finally break it off with them, telling them that's it's for their own good, and the only way they can win is to never call me ever again, they become quite irrational. From now on, I will instead just hand them a printout of your post and this reply, to make the point ever so much more clearer to them. Since your post will in this way help so many people IRL, its troll status has been revoked, and it's become by far the most helpful and useful thread ever conceived on the EVE forums. However, since this turns your 'victory' into 'defeat', by turning your intentional defeat into unintentional victory, this means that this post will no longer illustrate the point to these men. I leave you to consider this multilayered paradox in tears.

I'm flattered. But if I turn out to be the most helpful and useful poster in EVE's history, then won't that make me the most successful troll ever considering the community.

Also I seemed to have made you reply to my post.

Excuse me while I log on to an alt and go back to ganking freighters.

1. No, it won't make you any kind of troll.

2. Actually I made you reply to my post, while both this reply and my earlier reply, and my next 4 replies, are merely cut-and-pasted from a logfile on my computer which was brought back from the future by a time traveler who came back from the 24th century, lured by rumors of my soul-endangering pulchritude.

3. you are excused, this time.

1. Well then, I accept my status as the most helpful EVE player ever.

2. Strange, that's exactly how my mother met my father.

3. Thank you kind sir.

I don’t need trouble but curiosity gets the better of me too often. You are all writing that burn jita is for fun. You are defining fun as MOAR TEARS from blowing up miners and industrials or the general player that can’t fight back and doesn’t read the forums. This event began after the leadership and instigator gets banned for attacking a really depressed miner they griefed for MOAR TEARS and then publicly encouraging everyone to further bully them into real life suicide because they thought it was a fun thing to do. This makes sense? This is “fun?" One would think a spanking dissuades repeated behavior but you decide to do it on a larger scale year after year in memorial instead while painting high sec as some form of scape goat for your frustrations.

I thought EVE was supposed to be about PVP fun and good fights rather than just MOAR TEARS. What happened to the big fights CCP presents EVE as being about in 0.0 with all those videos? Is grinding soverignty so bad that you’d rather find ways to create your own Red vs Blue teams to shoot each other for PVP and hang out in Jita looking for random targets to grief now?

I don’t get it but what ever. lol.


EvE is about doing whatever the **** you want and just dealing with the consequences of that. Deal with it.

Just to show I am not a party pooper I participated on this character with this kill:

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=17420636&nolimit

I am way down towards the bottom. I even used a corax.

I have 1.8 points of sec status so might as well pad my KM ratio tonight.

This is why people like you get no-where, this is literally the opposite of what is happening.

Yes. One of the cultural aspects is also 'managing the attention' of the market. This is in part done by grandiosely announcing that you are going to do that and then doing it. It creates the impression that 'we could do this anytime we wished'. It's a kind of demonstration of projected power. It's a bit of an illusion since the organization could not maintain it and the action would suffer diminishing returns and be eaten by its transaction costs, but it is not entirely an illusion and serves many other purposes at the same time, internal and external to goon 'culture'... Or so it seems to me.

It is also of value to the market in a much broader sense. I have watched the live feed from time to time. In the brief times I have watched there has been a steady stream of people creating new characters and asking questions about the game, and this is only on one fairly limited channel of activity.
