Well said.

It's not a huge deal, just irritating, people who use terms like "F1 monkey" are actually saying "I'm morally superior to you because I play a video game by smashing 2 or more buttons compared to your one". That makes them jsut as bad as the people they complain about.

It's that stupid, we are all wasting precious life time playing a video game. Even in the context of the game the fleet fighter (even if they are doing it just for killmails) is no lesser than some leet solo pvper or miner or banker or high sec mission runner or ganker or whatever.

OK...fine...You *are* an F1 monkey....

Yeesh, I didn't know it mattered that much to you that I include you in the F1 monkey group...I'll use the term to describe all 0.0 residents from now on - just for you o7


You should try growing up. Or would it be easier to just blame me because you hold a prejudiced attitude about something inconsequential?

Either way is good with me.

Look, I was simply explaining that I use the term in an accurate fashion - to describe players who could literally be replaced by a monkey trained to press the F1 key. And I know such players exist because I know some of them personally...

I went out of my way to say I do not think the term applies to the majority of 0.0 residents, I know most of you do a lot more than that...

I also made it clear that I have no problem with them playing that way - but F1 monkey is simply an accurate description of what they do...

*You* are the one who took that as an insult, that I wasn't including you...


So...why don't *you* grow up, or grow some thicker skin. You insist on taking insults where none have even been aimed at you, then of course people will insult you. Deal with it.


I'm the one who should grow up, yet I'm not the one calling other players "monkeys" while hiding behind a forum alt.

Oooh, buuurrrrn.... Roll

Yes, I, a forum alt, belong on the forums... Shocked

Totally going to go re-think my entire life after that one.... Blink

Was that even really an insult? I mean I know you intended it as one...but come on now. Roll

I'd say we've derailed this thread far enough and we should get back on topic...but I think we lost that 50+ pages ago Ugh

When I insult you, son, you'll know it, you'll barely be able to pepper your posts with embarrassment smiles (which tend to pop up when someone realizes they made themselves look like a fool) your hand will be shaking so much.

Actually I've always over-used emoticons I'm afraid - I stand by my usage of F1 monkey and will continue using it regardless of your opinions P

As for your insults, we'll see when you throw one out then I imagine - whenever that happens..

Won't work. Shuttle flight requires use of more than one button, and since apparently some of us are so monkey like we can only press F1.....

Actually it only requires your left mouse button - not even a single keyboard key.

Unless you manually pilot with bound controls - which is laggy/buggy last time I tried it...

Lazy Monkey P


edit: 3 jumps to jita as well - will probably get ganked on the undock

The question that popped into my head reading this is "ok, and?"

There are people who mine just to watch ore fill their holds. There are people who ship spin and do literally nothing else. What does that have to do you you or me or anyone else? It's not your cash their are spending to sub.

As I said - they can play that way if they want, I have no particular problem with it.

But when *I* say "F1 Monkey" or something like that - I'm talking about *them*. 9 times out of 10 people like you assume I'm talking about you and jump in to defend yourselves, saying you aren't F1 monkeys.... But at least for myself, I'm not talking about players like you...

That is all P


Then you should use a different word for what you mean. Apparently your idea of an F1 monkey is vastly different from what most other people think.

Really? How would you define an F1 monkey then - if it is *not* a player who *only* flies in 0.0 blob fleets?

Please, elaborate...

Actually Jenn never did explain...

Just complained at me rather vaguely...

I believe what Jenn would like to say (but can't seem to articulate) is that the term is offensive and I shouldn't use it *at all*...

But what the two of you actually keep seeming to say is that you are offended I didn't include you in the term "F1 Monkey" - like it is a group you are jealous you can't be part of...

I am in Jita - don't think Jenn is coming sadly - so I guess I win Lol


And yes Jenn, I know it isn't fair to ask you to come out of 0.0 to shuttle fight a forum alt, and I only autopilotted 6 jumps past lazy CODE. pilots who didn't even gank me. P

Maybe what we really need to do is a big free-for-all shuttle fight with everybody who has posted in this thread.

dibs on the diplomatic shuttle, the Cadillac of shuttles. And I'm sooo diplomatic.Smile

Thieving pirates discuss INTEGRITY; Anarchist gankers give us LAWS; and Whoring merc's cry then blow off clients with INSULTS.

In true EvE style, we'd agree to such an event only to see one guy bringing a Rifter called "Minmatar Shuttle", one in a smartbombing Hurricane and one in a cloaky reaper with backup fleet in EC-P.

This will be so much fun Lol

Your only stated objection to my usage of "F1 Monkey" is that I don't use it like everyone else. Everyone else throws it around as a general term for all 0.0 residents. Thus - you clearly want me to call *all* 0.0 residents F1 Monkeys....

I really see no other possible way to interpret your literal words.
