Let's be honest, why do you REALLY hate goons so much?

Because some people take this game wayyyyyy too seriously?

Its the laid back attitude of TEST, Goons and the CFC as a whole that drew me to TEST.

No CTAs, very few rules (the only real rule is dont **** with blues), lots of space to mess around in, a very active population (so lots of roams, fleet ops, etc during most TZs), and nobody breathing down your neck about KB stats (we care soo little about KB stats that we take out fleets of ships with rainbow lasers and die in a glorious fire just for the lulz)

Deep down I'm really jealous because they have so many more space friends than I do. Oh goons why won't you be the captain of my friendship boat?

I find much of their antics rather amusing (like the starfleet dental bridge of death). The Fallen Earth group was a major let down though. They tried to come in riding on the notoriety of eve goons but failed to impress and most left pretty quickly. I also learned the other day that I work with an ex goon.

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone hates or loves them. Some like myself I'm sure, are quite indifferent. This is internet spaceships. Nothing to get emotional about.

I'll just throw out there that the BoB vs Goons story is the reason I started playing.

I don't hate goons.


I just shoot at them. There's a difference.

I can safely say that after hanging around with a lot of goons (mittani included) that these guys are really funny/awesome people.

It isn't that they're big.

It isn't that they've got a cocky attitude (They're big they earned it).

It isn't that they use super capitals.

And it isn't that they are picky about who they let it.

I don't like goonswarm because of how they scam recruits. You can't really trust that they're actually going to make you a goonswarmian unless you're already a goonswarmian. Best advice I got was, if a goon tells you that you should join them, best thing to say is "no thankyou."

And you know what, they don't care. Which is fine. They have their bit of the sandbox, I have mine. Just so long as we can have the opportunity to kick in each others' sandcastles.

Whether it be in real life or on internet spaceships, people who are bad, but think they are good are annoying.

Damn nature, you scary!
