New here, but been doing some research on famous eve players. And I’m finding a ton of material on this whole E1/Jester or Riptard or whatever fiasco. Very interesting…
I seem to have stumbled upon something I don’t see mentioned in the vast majority of Eve writings on the subject. Not until a rather lengthy article on the imperium by James315?
This appears to be months (a year?) before the E1 controversy, in which this famous? blogger seems to be doing exactly what he later criticized.
From the blog link:
" Anyway, what happened next is (link in original article above)… literally. There’s a recording of this guy’s corp comms in the aftermath of the loss. Unfortunately, it’s the most pathetic display of whining that I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard a lot of it over the years. This poor guy almost literally emotionally comes apart. If you are a fan of tears, this is your Mecca. Again, I hate to highlight it: it’s kind of sad. But this is definitely the kill of the week.
The other truly sad part of this is that the guy apparently decided to leave his corp after the incident. Who knows if he’ll keep playing. And EVE players being EVE players, he’s becoming a [figure of fun](link to crying player profile in blog post ) on a number of levels…
Sorry for your loss, Shade, but awoxing is part of EVE. For the rest of you, feel free to learn from this example."
I’d have to think on that one. It’s shocking, really. I can’t believe anybody would ever try to scam a legitimate ISK doubler. Maybe they’re jealous, maybe they’re just bad people. Or maybe they’re just salty that they didn’t follow the rules.
I love that movie, some classic one liners and some Monkey Island vibes in the sword fights; the devs for Monkey Island were probably influenced by it as the movie predates the first Monkey Island game.
