This is the point exactly.
Still, doctrine is more important than comfort & fun etc.
It’s also about comfort for me. I might put a repping rig on a Pallie so I can hold my reps for longer helping a team-mate. I might use TP-300’s to actually hit the target with my main guns ( Pallie’s are weak on tracking after all ).
But still this FC went off the Deep End.
I’m still waiting on an answer from Council, so I’m not growling yet. Just painting the picture people wanted.
DPS means nothing if you miss. And only really weak FC’s will fall for what this FC fell for. One of our best FC’s ( also Council ) will fall asleep in his Corn Flakes whilst just saying ‘shoot it’, site times are good, and we giggle on Comms. He only has to tag for teh Newbros. It is sooo much better than gistapo-in-silence etc.
He’s one of the best because when the poo hits the fan he knows what to do. Skill. Not just parotting off lists. Anyone can parrot a list.
Yeah, it’s a pain in the aft. If I get popped I want it to be my fault, not because FC was too weak to have tags.
Incursion Communities are shrinking. I’ve spoken to enough Pilots over my Incursion time to know why. They’re bored. Off-the-scale bored. That’s why the more-relaxed Ditanian Fun-Fleets are so special to so many of us.
It’s why I have multiple Toons. I just go fly someone else whilst this guy makes Ditanian look bad. I get along with other Pilots, so that’s the loss. Part of this game is Social after all.
Hey-ho, still waiting on Council.
The Chat Log is simple enough:
Lose the rig. Lose the drones. Respect my authoritah! Proper Cartman style.
Then when I try to get him to understand that I have health issues he says “that is not an excuse”. In European Law ( where this game lives ) it is actually. You’re supposed to make reasonable adjustments for disabled members etc.
The rest is him frothing at the mouth. I know nothing about the guy. “You aren’t allowed to have emotions” etc. Yeah, for real. He does seem a touch, well, extreme.
I know EVE has a rough side ( no really ), but this just brought a real bad taste to my mouth. Using my health condition against me, for something as paltry as 2-3m AN HOUR ( I fly a blinged-up Pallie after all. 5b of hull is way more than a Megathron ), is… A bit much for something that is pretty-much easy-ISK mining. Oh, and it’s a Newbro friendly fleet too, so we never hit high-speed Incursioning like the snobs unless we build a special fleet. Because we let Newbro Megas in ( they have to start somewhere after all ).
No-one enjoys being stamped on just for being unable to reach ‘perfect spreadsheet’. That’s not Trolling.
