A Tayra is as badger like animal

I just turned into an egg, did I level up? I spent an hour trying to salvage a wreck, when in local a guy said "Stop it, this is my Tempest, I was AFK"

You cannot name the Badger II the Tayra as a Tayra is neither, and therefore is breaking the theme naming.

Now not EVERY caldari ship fits this naming scheme, but the vast majority do. And you are making it even worse by adding another out of theme name.


This has probably been pointed out in this thread, I don't know, I haven't read it all.

But a Badger is neither a bird nor a mythical creature either.

I kind of like it. It's like hot girls name, like "Hey I want to peel Tayra like a banana and spend all night.... " you know the rest.

I am sorry OP, you brought this on yourself Twisted.

That being said, I will refrain from posting, because my level of ::snarky:: is far too high today, and General Discussion will implode.

Also, posting in a stealth "Holy hell, EvE was patched, so it is dying" whine thread.

Once you realize what a joke everything is, being the comedian is the only thing that makes sense.

How do you know that all the animals Caldari ships are named after aren't considered mythical in the post-gate New Eden? I imagine that when they have larps on Eve's planets they are dreaming of a magical fantasy world with such fantastical creatures as Ravens, Badgers, Kitsunes and Tayras.


This is specifically noted in the description of the Wolf:

Named after a mythical beast renowned for its voraciousness, the Wolf is one of the most potentially destructive frigates currently in existence.

Before there were Trolls, there were Badgers...

2000's "Don't Troll me"

1950's Stop Badgering me.

Well... I suppose it isn't exactly the same... but similar if there was an aim for action with a certain type of trolling.

Actually... perhaps the OP is Badgering the devlopers.. not trolling them? (or at least trying)

Onto another tack of reasonging with a badgerer:

Anyway.... here is a bird very close to a Tyra (missing a few letters):

I personally think Twinky would be a fitting name for a ship.

After all, it is now a mythical creature aswell.


Hostess is fine now so panic averted.



I was hoping we were talking about Twiki from Buck Rogers.
