hey guess what concord does
they kill every ship that aggressed you
surprisingly enough, that's exactly what happened here too, there wasn't some suspension of game mechanics just for your precious wittle jf

Goonie makes a post like this on an alt so the rest of them can post and enlarge their epeens.

Very sad really


I doubt so unless they felt the need to kill their rhea for it on an alt.They're eager for attention but not THAT eager.

The killmails in this thread.



TBH I wouldn't put their desperate need for attention past that by a long way. And a link to a killmail for a character different to the one posting doesn't count for didly squat.



And if you look beyond that and have a 'REALL' look you'd notice both where in the same corps at same dates.Last being both in the same FA corp .

No doubt those two chars are linked to each other.


Read the OP, I used to be in FA, ive made no secret about that. I am no longer a member, if i had know about this even do you think i would have died.

Man I should of know better then to ask the community to proof read a letter.

Dear CCP,

I am writing to you regarding your large scale massively multiplayer online game called EVE Online, which I have been playing since 18th June 2006 on my main and since 14th June 2007 on my trading character. Recently, I haven’t been enjoying the game as I once did, this has been going on a while but then you introduced varies new features which kept me saying to myself perhaps this will turn it around. So I kept on renewing and trying new things out, including null sec, wormholes, exploration, mission running (boring by the way), mining (even worse) and recently factional warfare (well done on making a broken system even worse there with your recent patch). I was going to keep playing until I got a new computer in June and hope the improvement of graphic settings would keep me interested, but unfortunately the final nail was driven into my EVE coffin on the 19th April 2013.
What happen that day should of just been my usual end of week trading, where I go and collect various bits that have been made during the week (as I work full time) and return to Jita to sell them. On the return journey I decided to leave autopilot on to get me the last couple of jumps to Jita while I went to go make myself some dinner. When I came back I found myself docked, but then I noticed it wasn’t Jita and not in my ship. I had been in fact killed and podded in Ikuchi at 1.0 system one jump away from Jita. Then reason I am upset about this event is that it was my Rhea containing over a billion isks worth of items, a total loss in the region of 8 billion isk.
After I talked to one of the people that killed me I discovered that my ship had been stuck on the gate because Jita has reached it population cap (implemented by you because your server lacks the capacity to deal with the demand) and that Goonies, TEST and the rest had taken advantage of the situation to start popping stuck ships. This in my view make the responsibility lie in CCP for the various reasons:
1. Lack of capacity in Jita causing a large amount of ships (likely on autopilot) containing vast wealth to be stuck on the gates around the system.
2. The lack of effect of CONCORD in destroying large criminal fleets in a 1.0 system – which in make no sense when taking into account the supposed size and reasons for CONCORD in the story line and the fact it is in the Caldari states back yard.
As a result I raised a petition for reimbursement of my loss, which I was the sequentially told, was effectively “tough luck – games working fine”. As a result I have effectively lost hundreds of pounds in wasted subscription fees and thousands of hours of my life over 6 years. As I mentioned earlier this had driven the final nail in the coffin of my EVE life, which is a shame as when I started out in the game although it was far from perfect I had high hopes for the game.

Any grammar, spelling mistakes and suggestion appreciated. I will be sending it once I think its ready


Welcome to EVE!

On a serious note though, EVE is a dark cesspool that CCP prides itself on. These mechanics are there for a reason, your loss is your own damn fault...Let me explain, auto piloting with 8 Billion ISKies in your cargohold is like walking through the worst part of town with your hand stuck out holding several hundred dollars. You're bound to get punched out and your cash stolen. Now, you're doing the equivalent in EVE, and you're expecting nothing to happen? How dense are you and other people who do the same? Like seriously....think about it? EVE isn't a themepark MMO, (some people *cough* Riverini *cough* think it should be, but they're ******* ********.) Whoever Autopilots anywhere with billions in their hold is more dense then George Bush.

Your ignorance is why they do this.
Your laziness is why they do this.
Your tears is why they do this.
You dense ************, you deserved it.

Obligatory: I can has stuffs.


I see none of you have actually read the OP properly. The cargo hold had 1 billion isk, the ship was the most expensive item. They used 16 BCs and a huge number of dessies to pop me. IF CONCORD had killed every one, then fair enough, but it didn't it allowed them to pop other ships as well making it cost effective. Otherwise it would have cost more in ships to kill me than what was in the cargo hold, and they wouldn't have bothered.

I am not some idiot, the point I trying to make is CONCORD is not effective as a punishment, it make no sense in the story for a organisation such as CONCORD, not to be able to quickly kill the entire fleet after the first kill. In the end according to the story, CONCORD keeps the empires in check.

The reason I mention the player cap of Jita, it because it caused a larger number of valuable ships to build up at the gate making it a very big target.

And to every one who says should of been auto piloting, you try doing 30 jumps in a freighter and trying to have a life at the same time. It not like I was auto piloting through low sec.



I do 30 jumps in a freighter at the keyboard the whole time buddy. I have a life and I will dock my freighter halfway if I need to. The fact is that you lost what you did because you were lazy.

Jita's pop cap has nothing to do with it (it can be like that even if Burn Jita is running). And Concord would have killed each and every one of them but not immediately (as the mechanics intend).

The fact of the matter is, if you came to Eve back in 2006 and expected highsec to be safe today when you got killed, then you haven't learnt anything about this game. YOU are the problem here, not CCP's game.

So i was the ONLY kill you got this those ships then? I bet it wasn't and thats my point, the hammer didn't hit hard or fast enough to make this event pointless.

Dude you get killed in less then 30 seconds by concord. The system works fine. Everyone who agresses you will die.

Sorry but yes you are ,


1. Burn jita is announced weeks ago on the same forum you are complaining now.
2.The way concord works has not changed recently so as an older player you should know this.
3.The jita cap has been there for some time and the 'system cap congaline' to enter jita has been mentioned since over a month AT LEAST in different threads.Something you should also know if you visit jita freauently.
4.If you don't have the time to properly fly somewhere then don't do it or do a bit today and the next bit another day.You're not the only one with a reall life we all have to 'suffer' not being able to do everything we want in one evening.And if you insist on still doing it then expect death as an outcome.


Basically as you are a 2006 player you should know this .Really , you should .

We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.

Please look up your killmail on a major killboard, search for a link in the killmail labeled "Related kills" and you will find that, yes, you were the only ship killed by those particular ships before the CONCORD response

In a 1.0 system you literally can't get more than one arty cycle off before you get gibbed

The killmail belongs to the OP and is API-verified:

Asith: I have good news for you. There's a place where you can have your Rhea back, and in fact anything else you desire – for only 100 ISK. Nobody will ever shoot you, you can mine and trade in peace. You could even be a supercapital pilot, should your heart desire it. Where is this magical place? It's called Sisi, you can learn about it on the Eve wiki.

That's the smartest thing to come out of your posting to date. You knew you were going to get trolled when you posted it. You knew you were just asking for Eve's opinionated and intelligent player base to rip you a new one. But you still posted. Just like you autopiloted a valuable asset into a massive event that has been known about for a month or so, where the type of ship you were flying was going to be targeted.

YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

The repeated desperate "NOBODY CARES WHY ARE PEOPLE POSTING I SAID NOBODY CARES ARGGGGHHHH" shrieking of NPC alts is, if anything, even sweeter than the complaints of those being ganked.

I didn't know about the event why should I because somebody posted it in the forms? I don't check the forums and before the "you should have" people turn up not I shouldn't have to. Have you read every single post in this forum? I doubt it.

No I don't read every single post in the forums (I try really hard to, but no one could), but I care enough about the game to stay informed about current events. If you read my other post, I do the same thing you do (flying freighters to Jita as a market trader and industrialist), but I read the news sites. I know how game mechanics work and more than anything, I understand that when I undock, there is a chance that I won't dock in the same ship.

It's your responsibility to stay informed and safe, not CCPs.
