They are unlikely to directly support something that alienates the majority of subscribers.

Tacit approval, yes, but if CCP were to take anything other than the hands-off approach you would likely not like the result.

So CCP soulh promote an back camping Todaki an assorted 1.0 systems with multiple gank groups killing day ones ? cool!!

Heres a really radical idea, go to 0.0 an kill people that can SHOOT BACK!...or too hard for you lot? :p

It's funny because now all the internet gangster's know they can do it, hulk ganks are common place all week. None cares about winning some silly competition. Its purely for the giggles. You lads still try an say your doing it for "our own good" never stops being funny.

One day, even YOU, Zill, shall post on these very forums, writing; "Thank you Helicity, for you have shown me the light. I was lead astray by the false sense of security which my life in high-sec lulled me into. Now I realize that even when not participating in acts of violence myself, it does not mean that others won't, perhaps even at my very own expense and for whatever reason and whether it is a good one or not. This is one of those things which makes our universe the unpredictable, exciting place it is. I shall bask in your glory for evermore!"

CCP can't really officially sponsor an event like this - the reason's simple. If they came out and said yes, this is now Suicide Ganking Online, half their subscription base would immediately quit. (Yes, I made up the damned number, sue me).

The point being, CCP is in the business of making money. Their accountants are about to let them do something that runs in direct opposition to that goal.

It wouldn't be too hard to stop this Hulkageddon thing...

This miners just need to communicate and get some spider tanking-repping going on...what I, and I could be wrong, what is exactly what CCP dreams of...players communicating with each other and actually doing what this game (aside from the bull*** alt I can run a spy and attack with my more experienced character) is made to do; talk with other players, make connections, and make corps/alliances, etc.

Kind of comical 13-- ships go down with what would be a minimal level of support would prevent almost half of it.

Mining is profitable; talk to another corp who has a clue, get in an alliance, and have someone watch for a fraction of the profits, with the almost guaranteed level of action by the idiots who can't resist themselves from attacking hulks, etc.

Hulkageddon seems like a dream for ccp and what they want to promote...cooperation among different groups.

When ever someone shouts "lets gank the easiest blob target all the time" I hear is "Timmah! durh!" cause they really can't cut it in hardcore PVP because they hang out in highsec and flip mission runner ship which is as easy to defeat as an NPC BS. Someone mentions Freightergeddon as an idea another gankster wannabe complains its to hard to corridinate, go figure.

spider repping cant work for the following reasons
1. fitting reps to high slots means u cant fit strips thus no point

2. rep drones get vapourised by smartbombing bs's

3. cap repping would also be required and thus leaves no room for strips

sadly more hulkageddon will cause a drop in subscriptions as players who dont like pvp or mission running will get fed up of ganks and cancel their subscriptions.

Um...

You don't fit the Hulk with reps when spider tanking/repping... you fit A DIFFERENT ship with reppers, and the OTHER SHIP tanks and repairs the Hulk.

In other words, you have a buddy watching your back while you mine, should you be attacked, your buddy repairs and tanks you, while you escape. (Or your buddy is in a well-fitted PVP ship and attacks the attacker for you.)

(Edited to correct typo - I meant PVP, not PVE Laughing)

Does no one get it? Hulkageddon has 2 purposes. The first is for fun. This is a game and a lot of people including me enjoy killing hulks and to be quiet honest hulk kills in low and null sec are kind of rare so you have to go to high sec. Secondly this was all an evil plan by Helicity to buff concord and remove insurance payouts from suicide ganks so that he can afk mine and autopilot untanked t1 haulers filled with billions in loot to jita and then leave them on the gate until downtime logs him out.

I don't know if this will work.. I'm pretty sure that the second idea won't work (I assume you actually mean well-fitted PVP rather than PVE) because by the time your escort can attack the pirates the fight is already decided; and clearly they aren't worried about losing their ships given they are suicide ganking.

Was thinking what if you run a small-gang style pair of logistics boats (gaurdians or something). That would stop a gang of suicide gankers in cruisers or such I guess. But it won't stop an Alpha tempest because if it hits you in one shot the repairs won't kick in before you're dead. Am I missing something?

Yes, I meant PVP, not PVE :) Must cut down the caffeine... But ya, what you say there above is what I was talking about, a small-gang style pair of logistics boats, or some other sort of protection gang or tanking gang. I was trying to explain to the poster a very simple definition of spider tanking (it's not something you do solo!) and hopefully didn't create even more confusion :)

Good point about the Alpha tempest :)
