Thats a waste of good material there, brah!

If you are able to somehow infiltrate a hulkageddon party you best be using your position to leverage something more damaging than intel.

Ghandi never pulled any 'pranks' and EvE and Ahimsa are, frankly, incompatible.

Just sayin...


Good point, yet this is more along the lines of Keats.

Hello Gankers of Abudban!

Heretic Army is now selling Ganking passes for your system! These passes guarantee your Suicide ships, Thrashers, Etc. safety from hillbillageddon squads. We will give you blue status for 30 days from the time you pay, and we assure you those standings will be honored. This status applies to highsec only, you will not be safe from attack if, for example, you come to Amamake in a noob ship.

Individual Fee: 30 Million ISK Per Month
Corporation Fee: 100 Million ISK Per Month

As more and more corporations pay for these passes, those who do not will be in greater danger. Keep that in mind when considering this purchase.

Convo/message myself to discuss a purchase of an Abudban Ganking Pass! ISK will be payable to Heretic Army.

OH!
I get it now!
For days I have been reading through this thread, trying to figure out what was happening. The OP kept saying things like "we will sit in our Bantams, laughing at the gankers" and referring to it as a "joke". I have been sitting here thinking, "Wait... aren't jokes funny? Don't you laugh at things that are funny?"

Then it suddenly occurred to me...

Years and years and YEARS ago... (yes, I am old... probably older than most of you)... I saw a kid who went to high school with me getting a "swirly" on a nearly daily basis from a small group of idiotic jocks. They picked on this poor kid because he was lacking in social graces, athletic ability, fashion sense, etc... you know the type.

It was sad, really. I, myself, did not have the social clout to keep this poor kid from getting his head dunked each day, so I was powerless to stop it.

One day, he got a "clever" idea. He started wearing ratty t-shirts and threadbare jeans to school. He would dress in his worst clothes, looking rather ridiculous and... well... bad. Then, after getting his swirly, he would "mock" the guys who did it to him. He would pretend that their efforts were in vain because they were getting his cheapest, worst clothes wet instead of his nice school clothes. It was sad, because as he "laughed" at the jerks doing this to him, you could tell from the cracking of his voice and the shininess of his eyes that he was actually on the verge of crying, but he clung to the "joke" that he "played" on his tormentors as his "clever revenge". He INSISTED that he got one over on those guys, but you could see in his eyes that he was deluding himself. No one else laughed. No one else thought that he won, or that he came out on top. Eventually, I think the jerks felt bad for him, and left him alone.

This has obvious parallels to what is happening in this thread except for the following things:
1) Imaginary spaceships being blown up in a game is not bullying,
2) The guys who blow up the spaceships are not jerks, per se... they are playing a game and not actually hurting anyone.
3) They are not going to feel bad for you, OP, and they are not going to leave you alone.

They don't care that you are wearing your worst clothes (i.e. the Bantams)... and we can hear the tears through your laughter.

Incidentally, I do not take part in hulkageddon. I smile when I see that it is on, amused, and pleased that I play a game where the players make their own content, but I then do things that are profitable and more fun. So if you mark me with the flag "ganker", well... have fun with that. I am merely a passive observer.

And thx, a bump is bump after all.



the fact that you refer to yourself as "we" is actually unsettling. But do go on.


Sir, this just shows YOU do not know what this thread is about and whome.

As I said, I am hurt and offended and will now need 2 days to lick my wounds. My saliva isn't very regeneration-inducing. I'm a smoker. Oh and check out Charanista Vaurentas post again, you might even get something out of there.

True, checked the post by Charanista and found someone with some kind of imagination.
Which was refreshing. Other than that, it only contained self indulgence which to me, is a bit like masturbating.
And i get it, to some, self indulgence is best indulgence.

I guess people in C&P just get a hard-on from copy/pasting "popular" believe.
(Which is an weakness in itself in regards to EvE gameplay and politics, it makes for good slaves)

Now we have gotten that out of the way, is there anything else i can do for you sir?

I'll probably mine in a rokh and have a buddy in an occator to haul it. Gank those will ya...

Seriously though, hulkageddon doesn't gank helpless carebears, they gank ignorant carebears. Huge difference there. I'm a carebear but I'm not an ignorant one. I've never lost a hulk to hulkageddon and I never will. Someday hopefully I'll claim a few kills of my own though.

Read half the thread. OP is an idiot. Basic summary of the thread is this:

OP: Gankers are planning to run around shooting miners in the foot
OP: To grief the gankers, we will amputate our feet so that they cannot be shot!
Ganker 1: Miners are not organised enough to collectively amputate their feet on cue
OP: lol ganker tears!
Ganker 2: You know amputating your foot is worse than having it shot right?
OP: lol ganker tears!

Protip OP: You are not trolling the gankers by effectively giving in to them. They are not crying. You do not know what tears are. Pointing and laughing just makes you look stupid (see: swirly kid story, above).


All that said, the image of a gank fleet warping into a belt expecting to find one or more hulks and instead finding an army of bantams is quite amusing, so I hope some miners actually pull this off and put the fraps on youtube.

Thing is sir, as you only read half the thread you missed out on the good parts, in my opinion anyway.
This thread first needed some attention, and our group just used everything we know that will create a reaction.

We know people will ridicule on spelling, dumb ideas and so forth. Than after a few days we started changing the thread bit by bit, including responses from our side.

It allowed us to keep the thread alive and up the numbers on the thread counters.
We knew we would get insults, and all sorts of negative feedback.

I highlighted the part that you got right, and that is all its about.
Getting people to be inventive and actually have some hilarious footage online at the end.

In a way the thread needed to be nourished carefully. If you make sense, you get less response and certainly not the public we wanted in the thread.

(The we thing is about me just being the communicator for our entire group)

Anyways, thank you for your post sir.
