To gank or not to gank, that is the question...

meh ... the odd ganker makes life more interesting in losec and they are more or less totally avoidable in high, though even the losec breed tend to only take ineffectual pot shots at my warp stabbed MWD/cloaky indies and seem to run away when I am in something more PvP focused like an assault frigate.

I personally do not see the fun in the suicide ganking ,,, its all routine and no different to shooting mission rats in terms of challenge ... but each to their own. If people get kicks out of it (so long as they do not big note themselves as "elite PvPers" becasue they are not ) then hey go for it.

Well that's a tough one. As all well and good as gankers are (everyone has their role in New Eden, that's just theirs), most players that consider themselves "Elite PvP'ers" ARE gankers. Sad, but true. Every "Elite PvP'er" I've met, thats what they do. And it only makes sense that they consider themselves as such, considering the only thing they get out if ganking is tears and feelings of self-satisfaction. Doesn't mean they're wrong, just means you gotta be careful who YOU personally consider an Elite.

Sucked ganking still makes no sense to me as far as fun. I agree, it's all routine and nonsense. But that's me. I enjoy running with the fleet and hunting. Keeps me guessing and on my toes. For me, that's what's enjoyable. The spontaneity. If I liked monotonous routines, I would've stayed a miner.

There is no question.

Gank... Always.



Gotta gank to get the GF's.


Yup, occasionally you whelp 20B BLops fleets.... or 45B worth of Vindi's and Archons..... *cou.... GG Eve Uni, you got us good....gh*.....


But without being willing to take that risk, the mythical 'good fight' will be very few and far between, indeed.


Thanks again RVB Ganked Squad! Amazing fight! Much better than I hear that mess in HED-GP went!

The Law is a point of View

The NPE IS a big deal

With great risk comes great reward, they say. And I agree. Even tho there is no financial reward sometimes. I'll be done with my 4 day training queue by later on today. Then I'll have T2 turrets. Maybe then, after I fit a ship or two, I'll go roam around and see what I can do. That is, if the fleet isn't going out. Then I'll most likely roll with them. I seem to be the only guy in my system that gets PLEX regularly. I've been selling them a lot in my corp so... I'm just wondering if I can turn that into something. Like, I'll be the "PLEX Guy", and maybe can get some extra rights or privelages in the corp. what would those privelages be? I have no idea. Just a thought tho.
