    You will regret those words when the powers that be relinquish their hold on their ignorance and evolve into assets for our world.

    Then I will switch between making you buy combat clones and pod pilots both station side and planet wide.

    I will drop those artifacts known as Titans down onto your picnic basket heads until the TICs make you go away.

    Then, after you are beleaguered to hole; I will taunt you from a mining site where an oil rig is your horizon and my drill bit your only star.

    After I have opened your world with a hydraulic escalator the size of which a leviathan might crawl upon; I will make you go to etiquette school, learn social dynamics and study earth sciences or biology so you are intelligent enough to do battle with.

    Years after these classes are forced upon you, and you feel as though I am your father or big brother or something heart felt and warming: I will kill you with this simple minded and archaic shark attack the very way in which you described.

    This is because I neglected your history classes on purpose;

    That I might tell myself a joke in the future.

    Because I am more funny than you.

    Okay then. I will find you and I will show you how a real Breacher operates. You will learn to only make claims you can back up.

    Laments because you are within secure space.

    The mechanics to facilitate your happiness have been implemented.

    Faction Warfare is the perfect tool to drive the Amarr Empire into low security space.

    It isn't even hard. You just plug along and keep some reinforcements in the mining fields.

    Once the sec. status is low enough we will be able to fist fight or break each other off to our hearts content.

    Also, feeding me to the sharks?

    There are sharks in space.

    Being a capsuleer is like swimming with sharks all the time.

    Celestial organs are not afraid of sharks.

    Their influences are as bad as a shark bite or worse, considering the time it takes for those primal forces to coalesce.

    Ask yourself how or why a planet revolving around a sun is statistically proven to be more likely to be hit by a solar flare than the solar flare hitting nothing.

    Oh, I meant dragging you right out of your pod, take you all the way down to Pator, onto the Coricia archipelago, put you on a boat, sail right out into shark-infested waters, then stab you in the gut and throw you overboard.

    Your Breacher fitting is an insult to the hull and you deserve to be eaten by literal sharks for that.

    Also, I live in lowsec, you ninny!

    You can't say something like that and not tell us what the 'died leaves incident' is! *she pouts slightly*


    It's Mr. Egivand. Isn't his missus, like, his ship?

    The "dried leaves incident" probably involves organic matter getting tracked in and fouling a system or three.

    How easily you throwed out DUST marines from your world and made 'em forgotten. Or, probably, you never really consider 'em as residents of cluster? Someone equal to your elite pride?


    Are you quoting me out of context?

    The full quote you should be using is as such:

    Barring exceptional cases, capsuleers generally have no compelling reasons to go planetside. Their business is in space. Their money comes from space activities. Their antagonists are also in space. Space is their niche, their habitat, their best-fit ecosystem.

    So they will stay in space, because that's where all things concerning them happen in and where they belong.


    A capsuleer has as much reason to be on planetside as a fish has as much reason to be on Mount Himalaya. In other words, hardly any good reasons at all. Money-making? We make more money in space! Kill a hated foe? He is in space! Conquest? We conquer entire solar systems with fleets of spaceship! Bars and night-life? Space stations!

    Again, no compelling reason to be planetside.

    The relationship between capsuleers and DUSTers had always been those of Mr. Johnson and outside-the-grid mercenaries. We pay them lots of money to take care of our business involving boots and shootouts. There's never been a time the DUSTers pay US money to do **** for them. Orbital bombardment's more of a voluntary thing, and they could handle it just fine via their Warbarges.

    How much dps does it take to "alpha strike" a kill on a Dragoon Destroyer?

    One Omega piloted Dragoon Destroyer versus swarms of alpha piloted frigates, destroyers, and cruisers and you'd bet on the Dragoon? My uncle Matar is correct when he says the number of fools is only slightly less than the number of stars in the universe.

    I should know better then to expect sense from someone who can't even spell Cadillac correctly, what a moron.

    I am thinking those swarms that were fielded by the Goons in their rise to power were lucky they never encountered a solo Dragoon Destroyer.

    lol The things people will say because they think it is popular are amazing.


    Let me guess. You have never heard of clonejacks. Some 'solo' pilots use their services.

    And kiting is pretty standard for alot of solo pilots. Anyone who has ever landed in a complex right smack within the sights of a railgun Cormorant or a Garmur sitting at 20km+ knows what I'm talking about. It's even worse inside a complex since the ability to warp to a fleet member at 150km or more is disabled in there.

    Hardwires do not make you invulnerable, but they will make you a darn arse to deal with. Have you ever fought against a Snake-augmented Dramiel, Garmur or Vagabond? Darn near impossible to catch without a very specific fleet composition, and they will thrash all the alpha frigate pilots in a heartbeat. Seen it happen before. How about a Crystal-augmented Cyclone? Good luck cracking that shield.

    Dragoons aren't designed for alpha-strikes. They are designed to drain any poor sod who gets within its range and tear him or her to pieces with a swarm of drones. If you want alpha-strikes, look for a railgun Cormorant or an artillery Thrasher. If that Dragoon is designed to keep at range with something like, say, an oversized afterburner, you will have your fleet split, and every individual frigate that manages to get within range will be eliminated. Splitting enemies on grid is a staple solo pilot tactic. Since you aren't aware of this, I assume you have rarely dealt with a solo pilot.

    Uh ... I don't know if you'd specified "cruisers," earlier, Mr. Ronin. Anyway cruisers actually have slightly limited utility in the warzone, first because of the swarms of smaller ships that make basically anything but a destroyer-fit cruiser impractical, but also because they only fit into about half the plexes. This limits their applicability compared to basic destroyers (75%) or frigates (100%).

    (Also, yes, I gather she's pretty good.)
    I never specified ship type beyond "Alpha" accessibility. I find it hard to believe one Destroyer could survive swarms of alpha ships, all egos aside, at some point their combined dps surpasses what any solo destroyer can withstand.

    The drones give additional firepower but against a swarm of twenty, thirty, forty, or fifty ships how long would they last?

    Not to even mention the logi capabilities of the attacking swarm or their drones all targeting the solo doomed Dragoon Destroyer. A solo ship against a swarm of alpha piloted ships would perish, not even Titans take the field without support.

    Kiss ass as much as you decide is appropriate but no one is "good" enough to defeat math.

    The solo Dragoon Destroyer against a swarm of alpha piloted ships is toast, not without exacting a few kills possibly, but they would not be going home except by pod express. To think otherwise is childishly foolish.


    You have never heard of 'kiting', 'oversized afterburners', 'links', 'hardwire implants' and 'command burst', have you?

    We are Capsuleers, Planetary existences are below us, that is what mortals are for. We reside in the heavens.

    Although in some chronicles recently there were capsuleers doing **** on planets and an old one where a capsuleer hunts down a crewman who tried to kill him by sabotaging his ship and the ship side capsule ejection system. Except for that last instance the others were state agents. And that last one I can't find the chronicle it could actually have taken place on a station.


    Barring exceptional cases, capsuleers generally have no compelling reasons to go planetside. Their business is in space. Their money comes from space activities. Their antagonists are also in space. Space is their niche, their habitat, their best-fit ecosystem.

    So they will stay in space, because that's where all things concerning them happen in and where they belong.

  • Ideology in EVE in EVE Communication Center

    Yves Nat wrote:
    I'm looking for input from everyone reading this as to their experience with/knowledge of some particular political/economic ideologies in EVE. That is, things outside the obvious free marketish/libertarianish culture that is predominant in the game.

    To put in another way, there is buying and selling, there is the business-type organization of a lot of corps, there is the nihilistic gank culture. But there's also sufficient players that there must be more, and if not more, maybe enough critical mass to make something more.

    For example, is there a corp that runs based on Marxist principals? Is there one based on Anarchist principals? Pacifism? Christianity? I'm really curious about this, because if these kinds of things are around, it would make EVE a hell of a lot more interesting. Can you make a corp with no shares? Would a corp work if everyone had equal shares?

    If there's none of these, are enough of you interested in this to try something?


    Just play the game and see what kind of corp you can come up with.

    But don't expect any of these to stop you from getting shot at, and don't expect other players to be nice to you about it. Eve Online is drama-filled, full of backstabbings, competition, warfare and really stupid arguments and a ton of propaganda (especially in null). Even if everyone is a capitalist, there will be no shortage of conflict in Eve Online.

    Just because everyone believes in the same thing doesn't mean they are going to like each other. If my experience playing this game taught me anything, it is that no matter what side you are on, you are not on the 'right' side (or even the 'left' side), just the side you agree with and/or kinda like. And the other guys may not like your side, for various reasons, so there will always be conflict.

    I guess I don't, really. Whenever I go somewhere, I usually just check the weather forecast for the time I will stay there.

    If a good friend told you about something they witnessed, and their testimony could potentially convict a murderer, but they dared not go to the police out of fear for themselves or their loved ones, you can not protect them if they did, and your own second hand testimony would not suffice for a conviction, what would you do?


    I'm a frakking capsuleer! I will call in many proxies to secure his or her loved ones or incapacitate the murderer while the witness rats him out. There is also the option of calling in many proxies and arrange for the murder of the murderer.

    Before you point out that the murderer could be a capsuleer, I myself will point out that if he is a capsuleer, he wouldn't have given a whit about convictions in court or anything. He would have just left the system. Not to mention the local police officers would not even consider arresting him due to the risks involved in doing so.

    What can you do as a capsuleer beyond flying a spaceship with your mind that you previously can't as a baseliner?

    How will you mark the passing of the season, or do you even follow the calendar manifested by YC?


    I don't. Out here, the calendar isn't as important as planetside since most of our activities are unaffected by seasons. Unless wars, mass-ganks and other major capsuleer ops are planned seasonally on a calendar, that whole calendar thing isn't too important for me.

    The only reason I look at the calendar once in a while is to make sure I didn't miss Winter Solstice feast (or get chewed out by clan), or anniversaries (so I do not miss on the chance to be extra affectionate and doting).

    On the other hand, I place more importance on the clock because that 24 hour period actually is relevant to our activities. Minutes and seconds can be the difference between profit and success or loss and failure.

    It is understood that the YC calendar may not sync well with planetary season due to deviations in planet mass and size and the length of orbit. What steps do you take to reconcile the difference, if you do so?

It's an out dated design that has been held up in Amarrian bureaucracy for the mere fact that it is old. With the Upwell Consortium's innovations it's becoming harder and harder to justify this shibboleth's existence, yet it still stands, mocking every Amarrian who would like to see us be progressive and competitive instead of behind the times for 100 years.

    Architectural preservation is not part of the Amarrian religion, and it is a tactical error to allow this structure to continue to stand. Turn it into a museum, or a hotel, but don't allow it to remain the market hub for the entire Empire.

    Hmm...maybe the grand sum of every single action that you've taken over the course of your entire life? As a follower of Ida, I personally believe that the Will is an intangible 'thing' that doesn't reide within your body, but are instead your choices and how they affect you over time.

    Starting your own corp doesn't directly make research any faster. It does make the paperwork easier to handle, and it helps to straighten out any ambiguities on who you are representing when you go out there to negotiate deals and contracts. It also helps when the baseliner employees begin to wonder about exactly what they are working on and who they are working for.
