To those who consider themselves Meta gamers what does that phrase mean to you?

Not entirely false. Wasn't it Mittani who said that the best spies are women? Simply because even if they're suspect some guys will keep them around out of desperation?

Your meta gaming when a player in your corp or alliance says this…

“First of all YOU don't own squat in the Zero Farm, YOU are a DOG in the PACK, so YOU don't build squat. Secondly, Yes whatever your CORP builds, it will likely get swept away unless your PACK is larger than the neighboring animals. That somehow seems pointless on both counts, because YOU haven't really accomplished anything.”

I’ll let the poster remain anonymous.

Sleeping with your enemies wife to get access to your enemies PC while she sleeps it off and dismantle their alliance from the inside out.

That's not what metagaming means at all. I know you want to say bad things about GSF and that's fine but please don't wreck the language just so you can post post post your internet rage crusade.

We don't bot. If you think you have found a GSF bot you should report it.

It means use every angle you've got...

Personally I avoid it though. It's one thing to screw people over in game. It's another when you put an RL face to it. I'd rather keep my lives separate... lest someone track me down in RL and shoot me.

Technically it is the use of external tools, everything from fitting tools to databases to bot tools.

But it is one of those things that people make stuff up. Many confuse "meta" with "mega" thinking meta has something to do with skill or dedication.

As once has been said:

Boys play with trucks and toy soldiers; girls play with dolls, learning how to "play" with people later in life.

Knowing that even if they know you're suspect they might very well still keep you around is part of the manipulation Big smile

(ib4 "lol gender stereotypes". trolololol)

Also, to me metagaming means using things other than pure game mechanics to do stuff.

No need,

Click on a couple of systems, check the amount of npc kills.

If these are real human actions, the members of the gs federation are not human because humans need sleep and time to eat, pray and do s*xual intercourse.

Yeah I can't imagine how an alliance of 6000 + most of the CFC living out of VFK are causing a lot of NPCs to be killed. But hey if that's the best proof you guys can come up with then I'm going to continue to rest easy in my belief that we don't bot.
