Well I just made a video to show people how to haul in low sec with a t1 hauler, so I’ll make one soon with my friend flying a handout abaddon on my one of my alt miners (so you don’t recognize my names) and bait you hard. Ok?
Why are you dodging the question?
Wait, you’re not claiming to have bested Agents of the New Order then refusing to give their names, are you?
That’s what carebears do, man!
Lol, how many times have I seen that in local, “I’m mining right now!! And you can’t stop me!!” just to find them docked up a minute later.
You still have not answered what system you did your “baiting” in, who the Agent was and how many Catalysts he had to kill your Procurer.
Donations from dimwits actually…
Yeahhh, roleplayers pretend to be actual spaceship pilots and try their best never to acknowledge the fact that they’re actually playing a videogame. They also have like, ~lore reasons~ as their motivations for doing things.
The New Order doesn’t do these things, so it’s just definitionally not a roleplay organization. I’d be fine with it if it was, I like roleplay and roleplayers, but that’s just not the case.
Hope this helps.
Still man, it’s got to be about the least lucrative activity in the game. You really think I do this all for ISK, huh?
Ganking mining ships is certainly not going to make ISK unless they have a rush of blood to the head and fit something they shouldn’t. Donations are actually quite a bit of ISK, but I agree, you do not do this for the ISK.
Nobody posts in this thread for ISK:grinning:
So what pidgeon-holing oversimplification do you subscribe to, Drac?
That you are playing a game, and you cook live gerbils in the microwave for fun, just kidding about the last part…
This is, by no means, a haiku.
This is just a post.
That is all, now please go on.
Which is what you do.
Forum is full of you LARPing it up.
Putting aside your obviously fallacious assertion that anyone who pretends anything is a roleplayer, I’ll bite. What do I pretend? Include a quote, if you could.
Your overall reply log almost gave me cancer.
Makes me wonder what you get out of posting like you do.
Fortunately I have a high resistance due to dealing with ■■■■■■■■ like this for a long time.
Claiming a system by projecting force, be that in Highsec, Lowsec, Nullsec or W-space is the most common thing in EVE. This is not RP at all, just normal gameplay.
Someone flying around inspectong non-existant licenses in the name of defending innocent space rocks, in a corp with a fictional fluff based creed, is LARPing.
I dont care if you do, but you cant claim that isnt roleplayimg.
I’m confused. For years it was all “roleplaying” and now it isn’t?
Asked the RP community, they will confirm that we are not roleplayers. We are as much roleplayers as people who claim a w-space, lowsec or nullsec system are.
I’d argue with Agent GalPig here and call it “practical roleplaying”.
The players that most people usually associate with the term “roleplaying” are the ones who give themselves funny titles and like to build their own little imaginary worlds where they can live quite comfortably. Since this roleplaying of theirs hardly has any effect on anyone in the game and is barely noticed by anybody else barring their roleplaying friends, we can safely say that this cohort includes the cute inhabitants of this forum’s Fiction Portal and most of “Highsec Militia”.
Practical roleplayers, on the contrary, make a real impact on the game world, but also like to back their actions with some lore. It makes them stand out greatly from the majority of the gamer crowd, which usually is unable to communicate with anything more sophisticated than a handful of stale memes. It’s proven with years of recorded evidence - every Agent is an instant superstar.
However, most players are still used to regarding any kind of roleplaying, practical or not, as something inconsequential. Think of the stereotypes and decades-old paradigms torn asunder by each and every Code compliance audit, and you’lll realize why we freak people out so much.
