If you bet your house in crapps and lose, having cancer won't solve things m8.
Kuz I'm a radiologist, and I'd love to know this is legit.

Im disappointed in all of you , especially you OP.

As a friend of someone who'd had cancer and having sat by her bed with her for those miserable months, im appalled.

Shed slap the crap out of you. So what, you got sick and so the whole world has to stop what they are doing and change for you? You can either lay down and take crap OP and whine that life unfairly chose you for cancer and for being ganked, or you can get up and fight like my friend did, beat the cancer, and go on and win at life.

Life isn't going to become easier for you just cause you got it hard.

You know I haven't played eve in over 2 years because I been in the hospital fighting colon cancer and going through chemo treatments, I been in remission for the last 4 weeks and decided to join a active corp and play some eve while feeling partially human before having to go back in a couple weeks for more tests in hope it stays gone. .

I hope the people that decided it would be fun to Conn me into joining them so they could gank both my characters carriers with all my stuff loaded for moving into a new corp I hope your proud of yourself for taking the opportunity of someone being drugged up with not as much caution as I would normally take. Due to not really thinking about much except trying to get my mind off of having to go through chemo treatments again for a cheap kill. God help you for that.

There is plenty of old eve players that know me and can confirm my being in and out the hospital for the last 4 years. I hope killing my carriers and blowing up my stuff was worth the thrill. To those of you who know and or knew me I wish I could of played just a little longer before ending up back in the hospital but I don't have the drive to fight being conned in a game and deal with reality. To my friends that still do play and remember me I hope you fly safe and maybe if god is on my side I might be back to play again someday.


Hello everyone -- I am the FC that organized this drop on him, with invaluable help from one of my corpmates that will remain anon.

OP -- I don't regret killing you. At all.

I don't regret organizing your cynos, I don't regret organizing the pilots that hot dropped you, I don't regret calling your archon then your thanatos then popping your wrecks.

I don't regret it because it's not personal, it's just business.

When you were talking in random channels asking for cynos from people you didn't know, I knew you had to pop. When we lit your cyno in the wrong system, in Asa instead of Hasateem you jumped anyway, without questioning it. When you jumped your Archon in a full 30 seconds before your Thanatos into 15 hostile carriers who IMMEDIATELY tackled and began killing you, you jumped your Thanatos in anyway.

None of us lied to you, cheated you, or did anything uncouth. You simply asked for a cyno, we gave you one. You just got more than you planned.

IF you are sick IRL, I hope you get better, make a full recovery, and live life to the fullest. IF you are sick then we did you a favor -- get off EVE, get out from the front of the PC, spend time with loved ones, or out in the sun, and all that.

IF you aren't actually sick -- shame on you. I really don't think you are. I don't want to come off as rude, but I actually think you were just careless and lazy. If you want to try and sit on the forums and take the **** out of me for killing you, feel free. But I didn't kill you, I didn't kill a guy with cancer, I didn't kick your dog or break into your kitchen and eat the chocolate out of your Neapolitan ice cream. I killed your carriers, on your toon, in EVE. Remember that.

But either way I don't feel one ounce of guilt over what I did, and I take full responsibility for it. As I said before. It's just business man.

No, the game construct Eve is not anything at, in and of itself. It has no feelings, no motives.
But what the construct allows is sociopaths to live out fantasies they could not in real life.


So what do you call the people using an anonymous media to justify their own self worth by bleating their e-honor moral code?

Jumping in on this late, but you've gotta realize that when people awox you, they awox Psyrus Baine the eve character, not you the probably nice guy struggling with a terrible illness. Sorry for your real life troubles but don't take the EVE stuff personally, get back on that horse it's just part of the game.

Best of luck with your cancer battle, stay strong

I'm not seeing the "real life ramifications" of blowing up your pixel spaceships. Its not like you can't play eve without your thanatos or something.

Why would OP's RL issues and situation affect anything in game? You don't play yourself in a game, you play your character and as such I doubt people will give a fck about what RL excuse, whine or reasoning one would come up with to explain why people shouldn't treat you badly in EVE.

I posted about that earlier on Page 5. I truly don't. We didn't kill him, we killed his toons.

*Sigh* I look at this thread and read each and every comment and I'm sickened

3-4 years ago this wouldn't be the case, ive played this game for 9+ years and I've seen the community take a turn for the worst. All everybody does is beat down a guy who just wanted too play his internet spaceships. Like seriously who are you guys to take that away from him.

I sent you a mail in game man, I feel your pain.

You'd think the luring of people out to corps just to gank them for the KM and/or take their stuff would be so old hat by now everybody would be aware of it.

ALWAYS assume that's the goal.


Oh well.


On the upside, if this stopped being Asshats Online, the servers could not handle the load.

How did we lure him out of corp to gank him? Do you have any grasp of what actually happened?

He had been out of game for some great length of time, and wasn't even confident as to what alliance he was speaking to when asking for a cyno. He had already joined another corp a long time ago, as you can see, so was no ally of ours.

We didn't even do anything questionable, we let him talk and ask for cynos and bridges and simply went along with it without mentioning whom we were either way.

We are technically correct, which is the best kind of correct.

Perhaps we can make it so if you do suffer from particular hardships in real life at the oment, you could apply for some kind of 'bumper sticker' or 'L' plates or ismilar to put on your ships?

Then others would know that this player is having a hard time in real life, and could avoid ganking / stealing / scamming their stuff and laughing?


Though thats a bit impractical, and I daresay would have the exact opposite effect.


So perhaps, instead, if you are in an emotionally sensitive situation you shouldn't expose yourself to opportunities or risks that may hurt you emotionally. Especially where pre-warned and forearmed with the knowledge a situation may actually turn bad.

having an illness / on drugs is not an excuse for being stupid in EVE, simple as that.
