The Big Five of New Eden

Author
#1 Posted: 2011.11.10 06:57
We Africans use the term "the big five" to refer to the five most dangerous animals to hunt: lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, and buffalo. Those few who have the hunting trophies of the big five are highly revered among the other huntsmen and -women.

I kindly ask C&P - the good, bad, and the ugly of Eve Online - to list the Big Five of New Eden.

I don't know anybody outside my little circle. And some of them are already pretty amazing compared to my young ingame ass.
"I saw him fight by the monument in Jita. He flowed in his Machariel like a Shinto spirit, 800MM shells sprouting in his passing. His hair flowed in the corona of his target's warp core breach. It was truly majestic. And while everyone stared in awe I stole the loot and ran off. Because I am like that." - NEONOVUS

My soft spot can be considered fair game for the big 5.

Mittani - Eve's greatest anti-hero.
Lukka - Most kills of their own alts.
Miz Cenuij - Most hilarious gatecamp stats.
Chribba - Either the most benevolent player in Eve, or the biggest scam waiting to happen.
Istvaan Shogatsu - Pioneer of evil.

Honorable mention: whoever currently holds the record of most ISK scammed as a proportion of ISK in the game.
"For example, if you are thinking about selling a Republic Fleet Firetail as a regular Firetail, be sure that the market volume is high on regular Firetails and that there are plenty of buy/sell contracts for Republic Fleet Firetails. [...] The players most interested in Republic Fleet Firetails are going to be players flying regular ones."  -- PB

I drew parallels based on attributes of each animal. None of the animals you listed seemed terribly difficult to kill with the proper equipment.


Lion - Hurricane
* Relatively common, usually hunts in packs, will hunt you.

Leopard - Vagabond
* More often hunts alone, quite fast, will hunt you, but tires easily.

Rhino - Drake
* Big tank, generally slow at first, very dangerous in herds.

Buffalo - Hulk
* Common herd animal, non-carnivorous, prey.

Elephant - Rorqual
* Usually docile, very large, can be dangerous when pissed off.

I find that without a good mob to provide one for them, most people would have no mentality at all.

The buffalo is a VERY dangerous animal, and adults are dangerous enough that lions will rarely attempt to take one on, preferring prey that doesn't frequently kill at least one of the animals attacking it. There's nothing "common" about those beasts.

You should probably learn a little about an animal before you comment on it.

I'm surprised the hippopotamus didn't make the list, considering how often they kill people.

I would like to mention that ''Istvaan'' is pretty much an ''Ominous McTraitor'' type name if you're into Warhammer 40k.

They look so docile and kinda cute.

But they are mostly muscle and very territorial.

Those huge teeth are just about head crushing size.
