To be honest some of the walls of text in this thread make it hard for the illiterate to keep up. Not fair.

Op posts, people flame, op gets some sort of entitlement out of this.


Edit.: It's pretty much your average run-of-the-mill c&p thread.

We are required by our constitution to let the voters think they have a choice. That's democracy!

Are you sure that the opacity of your glasses is sufficient to judge upon that sir?

What's the point in a contest that does look like, but not feel like one?
No Players' alliance or corp behind it. No clarification on how to evaluate the different suggestions except for a general statement. Too bad. All this does not even sound promissing.

First hand though: The idea of attempting to draw tears from Hulkageddon-pilots may be funny (, although this might be a bit over-ambitious).
Why: Because it is possible; because "they can".

But on second thought: You know, what's the point? In doubt the gankers shoot everything - just for the sake of a killmail, laughter, lulz, tears, and fun, which I honestly approve. Reason: Because it is possible, because "they can".

Let's throw all T1 frigs and cruisers with civilian modules or cheapest crap at one anothers faces - just for fun. 'S part of EvE as well. Reason: Because it is possible; because "we can".

Since I wasted plenty of time only by reading the first and last two pages of this thread and writing this word-vomit I sincerely hope that the OP is successful in his contest as a germ surviving in a bottle filled with germicide.

Best wishes, fly reckless!

Hello,


I am the organizer of GrieferGeddon (again).

Last year my event made it to the in-game eve news http://eve.battleclinic.com/news/139695-GrieferGeddon-Offers-Solace-to-Miners.html as well as to the Eve Tribune


Unlike Hillbillageddon, my contest is about ganking the gankers. It's also about remote repair. I wrote a program to track ships in space in order to help track -- and reward -- remote repair.

I have 4.5 billion in prizes, and growing. People trust me to donate as much as 2.7 billion from a single player.


And yet -- something was missing. Last year people told me they wanted a "tears" section -- as if a peaceful industrialst can engage in smack talk with a proffessional and not have it end in a 3-week war dec! I tried making a "no tears" section to accomdate this need but that wasn't too popular.

Hillbillageddon is just what my own contest was missing. The opposite of tears isn't "no tears". The opposite of tears is laughter!
So this year -- with permission of course -- I am including Hillbillageddon as my own "no tears" section part of GrieferGeddon 2.0, even though Hillbillageddon is not my contest and was invented entirely independantly of me.

What rocks are the most isk per hour to mine? Which of your mission loot is worth more refined than sold? What blue prints make the most proffit? Answers: https://eve-industrialist.com/ Never sell an item for less than its mineral costs again!

A few thoughts.

1) to make things fun and laughable . . pretend to join a gank fleet and don't shoot. If the calculated the fleet to pop a ship by just a small margin, a few 'spyz' would make the difference.

2) I think the point is NOT about mining during events, NOT about making isk. Both sides claim moral victory in making FUN of the other side regardless of isk. Given that, the Hill Billies are winning since they are laughing and the 'griefers' are trying so desperately to make it seem like it doesn't matter. To the tune of 20 pages.

Anything that makes the game fun for you is a win

if making the fun hard for other folks is what makes it fun for you . . .so be it

oh and the spam in locals about the upcoming events has already started. The bots don't read the spam but then even the Hill Billies and Mechanoid Kryten agree they do deserve all the ganking that can be brought ot bear on them.

I donated half my Goon created profit from Ice to Griefergeddon, seemed appropriate.

Great idea, however you may as well send me the top prize now, I've already won....Cool


I consider the Goons fail attempt to gank my Navy Geddon last night as the cream of all ganker tears...Nothing can top it...Lol
Although I do have to question the wisdom of bringing only 2 Tornados? Why did the third one fly off?
It wouldn't have helped, but at least you might have gotten me to half armor....Oops

Well sir, hope you logged it and captured footage. By that you could enter the contest and the public can vote on the best practical joke when the events are finished.

Good luck.
