Anti Gankers? Who? What? Where? Any ACTUALLY serious people?

Hi!

It's me again, the ugly duckling stuck in puberty with no chance of ever becoming a beautifull swan!

As you who know me know, there's always an introduction completely disconnected
with what I am actually talking about. I guess this thread isn't really different.

Please note that a TL;DR is provided at the end of the post.

Every single one of you still is encouraged to donate to the ...
... "Save the World from my face" rescue fond so I can resculpt.

You'll do the community a service!
You are doing this more for yourself than for me!



That's it already. On to the topic.


So I've heard there's this thing called Anti Ganking
and besides it's seriously stupid name I wanted to know more about it.

What I know can be summed up in a few lines.

There's a chatroom for these people, but I don't know the name.
It would be pointless anyway as I can safely assume that it's full of spies.

Smart move, btw, having a pointless public chatroom for people
to build trust and then violate it when it's necessary.


Btw... do you like my black hair?
I was always more the redhead guy... guy :( ...


So... what do they do?

I can make a few assumptions to fill this post.

Some AntiGankers are probably self righteous delusionalists. (is that even a word? I like it)
It means that they believe to be the moral highground and everyone who isn't as good as them ...
... or doesn't agree with them ...
... is somehow bad/etc.

These are bad. Actually worse than most gankers.


I can guess that it's those who sit at stations,
waiting for a ganker to undock and then proclaim
SUCCESS!!! MY GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT!!!! (read this in a slight russian accent, aka Dexters Laboratory)
if they manage to shoot one before he docks or when he undocks.

Okay...

So I wonder about if there are people who can actually be taken seriously.
So not these types or Gevlon Goblin types. No, I don't read his blog.

I have tried once and then needed to visit reddits eyebleach subreddit,
plus a full day of playing chess at hard level to make sure I'll regain the braincells lost during reading it.
I'm just kidding, but I really can't take him seriously. Maybe he doesn't want to be taken seriously, though.


I can't say I like or dislike you,
but your PR manager is an idiot,
or in other words... YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG! *cough*

Please note that I have no idea if he is still at it.
Thanks.




SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooo............ (Darth Vader)



What's the goal?
What are they trying to protect? Miners only or other ships too?
System wide action? Whole constellations? Are there "protected" regions?
Is there a group with actually larger following?
Any religious RP types?
Only self righteous losers or actually people who can be taken seriously?
Are there actual PR efforts and if so, why don't I know of it?



Thank you for all the information and detail you can provide.
Yes, I am serious.

Don't waste your time reading.

The fight between Anti and gankers happens everywhere. You will find all types of people in Eve. The goal of the Antis is to stop ganking. The goal of the gankers is to gank.

What's the opposite?

Is there any?

Ganking the gankers?

No... that's pointless.

Do you like tears?

1. Either "justified" murder, "protect the carebears, they're human too!", ganker tear farming or because highsec kills are always nice to have.
2. I dunno, I would say carebears because they're great targets
3. See 4.
4. I'm not sure, there's probably some groups that go and protect the carebears, I would say it's more like the type of "group" the hackers manifesto refers to. To quote,
The Mentor wrote:
I am a Hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this
individual, but you can't stop us all. After all... we're all alike.

So I suppose it's more of an idea of free carebears and each individual just eliminating the gankers when they can.
5. Like crusaders? I dunno.
6. You may be able to find a few serious people. I plan to start SBing them on my main soon, I'm in it for the highsec kills though.
7. PR? If that means player rights, you have the right to HTFU, use your kill right and go -censored for fear of ban-.

Thank you for your post.

PR is Public Relations. Like James does it or like Goblin fails at it.

You plan on discoing? Who where what?

So does this mean that gankers are anti gankers at the same time? They gank targets before other gankers gank them? Or do they gank would be gankers before they gank a not ganker?

It's like stealing, finding something for someone before they lose it, was it that way or the other way around?

I have a few of these "anti-gankers" following me around as I go on with my ganking business. They tend to limit their activities to insults in local chat, as well as sitting outside stations in cheap frigates trying to tackle me before I warp away.

Most commonly they claim I am actually a sadistic transvestite psychopath who gets off on the misery of others. I'd post some of the chatlogs, but I fear they may have far too much foul language for the audience of this fine forum.

If you could tell where this is happening, it'd be nice.

I know this type btw and mentioned it in my initial post.

I tend to hang around in Balle and the surrounding area, feel free to pop by. Probably won't be around today as I'm pulling a long goddamn day at work but you'll generally find me there.

I once podded Gevlon (I think it was Botslayer Goblin but can't recall TBH) so does that make me an anti-ganker or a ganker?

I think for many this makes you a good person. ^^

PR. Marketing.

Can't really tell you much about Gevlon.

Anti-gankers try to stop gankers (like the name suggests). The better ones use ECM to drop a gankers targets mid-gank so they get concorded for nothing, but some do run around shooting at gankers where they can. There are chat channels and they are full of spies, but for the most part the channels are there to exchange info, like gankers alts for warpins and whatnot and some areas where gankers are operating, etc. There's not much spies can do in those channels as all info is taken with a pinch of salt, it just gives a central location to pool info.

The Red Queen is alive and well in EVE. If you have more cautious penguins who can spot a brown polar bear from a distance, eventually the system will present a white polar bear. I think it's one of the most beautiful things in the game (besides the complexity).
