Short version: I gank rudely named characters, because of their names.
The whole enchilada: When I started playing EVE, I didn’t know anyone who played. I spent about a year learning the game, moving from social group to social group. I didn’t find anywhere I fit exactly, and I got to thinking about this.
I decided I needed an “enemy”, and that once I figured out who my “enemy” was…I’d find a social group.
Finding an enemy, lol, was “difficult”. I get along with people for the most part, so there weren’t any obvious enemies; but, I did notice that when I would jump into a system and scan local, I would frown over rudely named characters. You know, those names that you can report to CCP and CCP yanks the name, and the character gets labelled Gallente Citizen #_____. That kind of rude.
And then it hit me. Rudely named characters would be my “enemy”. I see no reason to report rudely characters to CCP, I mean this is EVE Online, a game, people can name their characters whatever they want. But!
There would be consequences!
So, I learned to gank,
I have an alt gank team and war dec crew just for that purpose. The war dec crew takes down rudely named structures.
And I have a wonderful time.
I want to thank every player who created a character with a rude name, you guys made my game, .
Isk plays no part in my decision making process as to who to gank or not. I gank other players solely based on their own choices.
It is cause, and effect.
