This morning I was happily cruising into Jita in my Sunesis, I got the usual lag spike as I came to the station, a kill notification and a “kill right earned” message popped up. Then something like 8 seconds later I could tell my ship had been blown up. Blown up by someone named “JIiIiIiIiIiL” in a Tornado using 1400mm Prototype Siege Cannons.
I’d post the killmail here but it’s not on zkill for some reason.
My Sunesis had a grand total value of 74 million counting my cargo. Just his hull cost 81,980,000 by the price I see in Jita right now. What’s the point? He had to be able to lock extremely fast and kill me while I was still lagged from incoming traffic.
Yeah, I got a Kill Right but what the hell am I going to bring that can stand up to that kind of firepower that won’t attract all of his buddies too?
Yeah, I know, go away and shut up, grow some ball, licking my tears all that stupid taunting, toxic crap, this is considered good gameplay. You know what? It’s not good gameplay, it’s called ganking which by its very definition is NOT pvp.
I’m not going to scream I’m leaving the game because then that sorry sack of excrement wins. I do however, know of MANY that have left after just such incidents. Several of whom have tried to point out the folly of allowing this behavior to continue only to be shouted down, taunted, and laughed at.
Not too many people can stand being completely helpless as they are blown to bits by someone in a ship 500 times more powerful then theirs just for the pure meanness of it. I’m not sure why I’m not chewing on my keyboard right now, I guess it’s a sad sign that I’ve become so used to bullies in less than two months that I’m numb to it.
What happens when the only players that are left are like this coward? Do you all move on to ruin another game? Oh, you don’t ruin the game itself, you ruin it for the other players. I guess that’s the point?
