There is a lot of nonsense in this thread. Eve is a game in which the modus operandi is careful planning and organisation, politics and alliance building, and a good dose of backstabbing and treachery. In this regard the Mittani has been a very good leader.

As an outsider I get impression that despite some of the legitimate desire for revenge and carnage, there is also a lot of jealousy towards the success that the goons have managed to achieve.

Well it is not from me. I want to see what the future holds for me in this game and what comes. I will always cheer for the side that wishes to bring about change as the possibilities of the future are always endless.

I freely acknowledge my participation as a nonsense instigator in what was becoming a relatively gloomy thread. I mean, whenever I see someone using the H person as an adjective, I must bring out Mel Brooks, I think there's a law about it someplace.

Anyway, more on topic... I know nothing about the Mittani, his goons, or him personally so I do not speak good or ill of him. Those that may fall on either side of the conflict may reflect on some of the greatest words ever to grace expression in regards to government and freedom:

Yes, let's make the thread less gloomy and more reflective-based.

The will of people is what allows people to come to power.

Tall poppy syndrome at work, it's human nature to hate whoever's at the top. Why do you think the people vote for a leader/president/prime minister then ***** and moan about everything said elected leader does.

So, what was this thread about? I think it was something about Hitler and the United States Declaration of Independence. This sounds a lot like a book title to me, by the way.

"Can not."

That argument will be solved with the movie... Right?

There is no such thing as a fair fight...

If your fighting fair you have automatically put yourself at a disadvantage.

In Eve, someone will always rise to the top only to be knocked back down. The only real challenge is t̶o̶ ̶t̶r̶y̶ to be the last one on top b̶e̶f̶o̶r̶e̶ when they shut the servers down lol.



Fixed that for you.

I may need more popcorn. The propaganda war is more riveting than watching the Americans elect Trump.

Eve is the dark haired, totally hot emo gothchild of the gaming community

I can understand why some of the allied forces want revenge on the goons, but for most of us, fighting to remove one power bloc so that it can be replaced by another power bloc has little point or meaning.

Sure, go and have fun fighting in a war, but don't be under any illusion that you are doing this for the greater good of Eve.


Nobody is arguing with that, the cycle will continue but it's time for the goons to be erased from the map.

I am certainly not under any delusion this is for a greater good. Empires rise and Empires fall. This is what they must do for Destruction is the foundation for Creation. A new paradigm to be formed upon the ashes of the old paradigm. The cycle must continue for the good of all and not even The Imperium is immune to this.

I wonder, are you even involved in this or are you just theorizing?

Stirring from the sidelines I think.

On the sidelines for now but I may join up if i can get friends to join me in it and signing up with one of the organizations.

I am also eager to see what the future holds...and I said before; I will always support a paradigm shift from the old to something new.

What would a future without the CFC as the major power bloc look like?

Who would rise up to be next and what will they do with their new found power?

These are the questions that inspire me to make my message known to my fellows here.

Odd. The way I see it Batman is having a heart attack there while Superman is still standing.
