The issue with this thread is its just damaging to both sides, after event crazy talk thats basically just saying to everyone 'man these fw fools be crazy'. I'd say most Fw militias each have some of the finest small gangers in EVE and what we are advertising to the rest of this community is.... embaressing. Granted, while Burn Huola was a blast, this after show party where all the people with lives went back to the hotel room, has sex with other halves/one night stands and the posters remaining are those left on the dance floor, swimming in their own puke. You had to be there man, we were so REKT!!!...


Kinda hypocritical since you are posting more than most.

If all this upsets you, just walk away.


Walking away because i want to, not becuse I'm upse......... JESUS CHRIST I CAN'T TYPE THIS WITH A STRAIGHT FACE.

Touche sir touche.

I liked the last posts very much.

The siege of vienna (mostly carried out by the elite jatishars as main assault troops) and decided by a contingent of german landsknechte making the foray that broke the siege was quite the same as barbarossa.

Barbarossa was nothing than a race to the enemy capital - same as the vieanna campaign. That way france (with the biggest standing army in europe) and poland (with an army entrenched and as strong as german forces) fell in a matter of weeks.

They now call that "Blitzkrieg" - that tactic was developed by russian tankers and copied by german tankers after 1923 - blitzkrieg is nothing than a rush to the enemy capital with combined arms that ignore entrenched defenders, who imobilze theselves with their entrenchement.

Ppl nowadays look a the vienna siege effort and do not ask themselves - how did the ottomans get there in the frist place with all their assets - being a raiding army in general. Ottoman outriders made it as far as augsburg in germany.

Both battles, vienna and barbarossa, where the biggest battles of their times and decided the history of europe for at least 100 years. Hilter hinself wrote that the war will seal humanities fate for the next 1000 years - I think he overrated the influence of germany on the world. A coniciende - the most aggressive geostrategic thinkers in the US claimed the beginning of an "american centruy" in the mid 1990´s - that ended some 10 years after that accessment. They did not understand what broke russia in 1989 and made the wrong conclusions.


In EVE taking systems is siege warfare in general - with all good and bad things about that. Plexes are trenches that give the defender a big advantage - the range atvantage and the terrain advantage (filtering ship types)- over the attacker.

A combat strategy only works to defend a system - the attacker has to siege. This defence can be done by roaming in general - harassment and harring the enemy. Counter siege in only necessary when things get bad for the defender - contestion rate over 50%.


I I offend ppl with military history I reget that - I hate all RL wars - but in EVE waging war is fun, and it is interesting to see the effect of combined arms in EVE - Isk war, KM war and psy war.


All three work together - and because noone dies in EVE you have to break the enemies will to fight - with boredom, fear and panic.


So I salut all minnies and respect their war efforts very much.

Without my minmatar and gallente I would have noone to fight and would stop subbing.

PS: Insulting ppl is a weak tactic - being polite to your enmies is a show of strengh and - style matters!

IIRC the only person in CTRL-Q to accuse anyone of being a spy (incorrectly) was..........drum roll..........you!

And again, IIRC when you were complaining on TS that you couldn't undock from your home station, in a frig because a single dude was bothering you...whilst we were in the middle of a fight, even the middle class masses of the Min/Gal EU TZ can be excused for politely asking you to hush for a moment.

Nice 400mm SFI fit btw, you do realise that even if you put a frig sized module on it, it still doesn't fit into a novice?

All this bad attitude, loathing and accusation about of people who were trying to do there best to help doesn't really encourage people to want to fight in a war that really only helps the very top level to hang onto their little system. Not surprising that half of the minmatar milita either didn't know about Huola or were not interested in the slightest.
