    What ever became of Hellicity Boson?

    To the best of my knowledge, Helicity Boson, the creator and main organizer of Hulkageddon, was banned form Eve Online late 2011 for releasing info contained in CCP's internal employee memo, The Fearless Newsletter.

    Since I'm an explorer the whole situation didn't really interest me much anyway. I don't know and don't really care if the ban is still active or not. It could have been a temporary ban for all I know. Hell, the ban itself could have been lifted due to all the Pitchforks and Torches present in the forums at that time.

    Gotta remember this was right around the time of Incarna's Summer Of Rage, there was a lot of anger and resentment towards CCP about a lot of things and the state of the game at that time was in pretty poor shape.


    DMC


    I was only very briefly banned. After CCP realizes we were all really pissed and turned the ship around my account was reinstated.
    I'm mostly retired, but I try to attend Evesterdam most years!

    And in the end why waste time trying to kill the pirates and potentially lose even more ships / ISK? When you can sit and let Concord do it for you. So in many cases simply allowing your ship to die was the least costly option.


    The least costly option would have been to simply cooperate and stick a scout on the gate... which is kinda what I'm getting at.

    Aside from the fact that most Hulkageddon victims either never fitted a single defensive mod, or (as in the case of a 1.1 billion isk faction fitted Hulk) never turned them on, the easiest way to not get ganked is quite simply to have someone watching your back.

    This could have been performed at zero cost with a day old alt in a noobship even.

    EVE will fight you if you are unwilling to adapt to circumstance, or to the influence of other players. Every part of the entire game will actively fight you if you can't, or more likely, refuse to examine your own behaviour and correct it if the outcome of that behaviour has a negative outcome for you.

    As Hulkageddon rolled through it's various incarnations, for me personally, it turned from "haha this is really funny" into "This is extremely educational (and also very funny, because this is the 4th time and people still die in droves)"

    What ever your reason, I don't think anyone could come up with anything that anyone else has come up with ( Including Devs ) which has changed the game more.

    While I realize that your intent may have been simple, the result is a legacy. I tip my hat to you Ms. Boson. All the videos that CCP produces to show off this game they talk again and again about one player being able to do something that effects everyone. You are probably the epitome of that. A literal poster child so to speak.


    That's probably a lot more praise than I deserve, but yes if anyone ever says "one person can't do anything in EVE" they are demonstrably wrong.

    I'm not special. Anyone can accomplish massive things in EVE, if it's an idea people can get on board with, and you have the drive and charisma to support it.

    The most perplexing thing I learned during Hulkageddon is how extremely unwilling the average high sec dweller is to ally with others and organize. The punchline was always "pirates are antisocial never-do-wells", but the reality is that the inherent antisocial nature of the Hisec playstyle is pretty much what allowed my event to succeed as it did.

    Hulkageddon was a testing program presented as a contest. It's intention was to log and record Concord response times and set up the cheapest ship fit required to achieve the gank in the least amount of time.

    Afterwards the results were presented and thus CODE became active. Their mantra is definitely based on discrimination, harassment and hatred towards those who engage in a specific game play activity under the guise of roleplaying and creating player driven content.


    Man, you have literally no idea what you are talking about.

    I already have a cunning plan. What I need is:
    a) free time

    c) donations
    I can't help with a or b, I'm assuming something similar to your past endeavours, when you're ready to proceed feel free to contact me about donating a prize or two.


    You will know when the time comes :3

    Hey!

    Weren't you banned or am I not up to date? :/

    Also ... cute! :D


    You're way out of date, I was unbanned pretty much immediately after the Summer of Rage.
    Wow I must have always missed you then...

    Your cute face is awesome! Especially considering the fact that you
    were responsible for the slaughter of thousands of mining ships! :D


    I've not been active, real life work needed doing :(

    Ganking internet spaceships surprisingly does not pay the bills.

  • High Sec Hauling/Mining Kills - TY CCP for No Protection in EVE Communication Center

    Duchess Amarrian wrote:
    Last night my hauling ship got blown sky high. I was flying a prorator and doing some deliveries. The person that shot me down organised it really well by setting up contracts and sucking in the person accepting the contract. I wont go into detail here. As i was making the delivery and just 1 second from being docked into station my ship got blown sky high. From what ? a minmitar Battleship that was so many km's away. It took 2 people to stop me.

    I keep hearing that ccp wil be doing something about this. I've just had enough of it. Seriously I'm trying to find some fun in this game and seeing that the others always have the edge over miners and haulers in high sec is a real joke. I don't mind if it had happened in low sec and null but when your playing by ccp rules to me it seems there are no rules and high sec is really a joke.

    At the very least give miners and haulers some big guns like you give others and maybe will balance things well.

    The two that got me are "Luukje" and "Natural CloneKiller". I put up a big bounty on Luk so enjoy your hunting.

    cheers





    Working As Intended.

    A quick look at your lossmail reveals a prorator with all but 1 relevant slot dedicated towards cargo capacity, and a single module for mobility (which further reduces your resilience). So far, so good. You say you were doing "deliveries", if that means courier contracts... well...

    An examination of where your loss occurs (a dead end highsec system called Ono) is more interesting. By nature, this system is not on any "regular" routes (dead-end and all) and is used for quite a bit of missioning judging by the NPCs killed statistics.

    It seems somewhat unlikely therefore that a professional ganker would normally be lurking there; traffic in Ono is less than 5% of what it is on the traderoutes to and from Jita. One might therefore suspect that this was a planned hit. The contract having been set up by an alt of the gankers. A classic, if rather pointless, ploy.

    How you managed to get blown up on a station eludes me, were you perchance autopiloting? ;)

    nevertheless, you chose to fly around without even a token tank. You chose to (presumably) autopilot to the station, else you'd have warped to 0 and docked.

    Welcome to the sandbox, complain less, think more, and you'll be fine.
