1. If you ever find yourself your a friend crying over the loss of a little digital internet spaceship, then I think it's time to take a step back for a little perspective. EVE is a game. The ships we fly are little digital models. A few lines of code. A collection of pixels on a screen. You haven't lost any real friends in real life, hon. I'd not get too worked up over a little in-game corp drama. It happens, and it's part of the game.


I always hate this kind of weak rationalizing, yes EVE is just a game with internet spaceships but that doesn't mean that people don't put in alot of soul and effort into the game.

It's really no different than an old man dropping his model ship that he's been working hundreds of hours on, it's just some wood, paint and glue. Heck, it's really not any different than losing a key game in a low-profile sport like curling.

Many of us may dismiss model ship building or curling as silly and unimportant, that doesn't mean that they are to everyone.



That's what seperates the men from the boys, if you truly have a passion for your ship building then you say "**** it" and start making a new one, and learn not to drop it next time :P

Okay, my friend is Giribaldi. He changed some things around so it wouldn't be obvious to the people involved, and he'll probably deny any association. He's cool and I love him like a bro, but he's no Jodie Foster so I wouldn't give him my password. Anyway, I think he'd appreciate your support. He'll probably keep playing, but right now he's just sulking over it all.


Giribaldi is the dude who's spent the last 2 years can-baiting in Amarr. He's a retard a pretty bad PvPer, but he's certainly no carebear.

It didnt destroy everything you loved, its started you on the path to playing the real eve. Go search for a decent corp and get much more of the shakes and rushes.

Edit: if he's not a newcomer to pvp he really should have known better.

This is where you failed. Take your losses and move on. Once you think you can win every fight in Eve, you're going to get taken to the cleaners.

seeings how i'm only like 2 months into this game, and my pvp experience is seriously limited, this may not mean much coming from me. but honestly didn't you kinda bring that misfortune on yourself? i feel your pain for having lost a ship. truth be told the few times i lost my ship i was ****ed (even lost a retriever full of stuff on my move to my corps base. who said high sec was 100% safe lol) but i got over it in like 20 seconds and continued bissness as usual. in my opinion getting back at someone right after they killed you is a huge mistake. you know, revenge is a dish best served cold and all that Twisted Evil one should always expect one's target to have pals. the signs where there; that group was organized, since it's organized it stands to reason they may have had back up. since they were already organized and set up it could have mean they had a defensive advantage as well (which they did) if you guys just wanted till another day and picked them off one by one you would have had your revenge. or just not get revenge at all it only leads to destruction (lol it really did in this case)

but the messed up thing about this story is the way the corps acted. well maybe it's strange to me becos i'm still new to the game but damn to kick someone just becos they "think" it was a set up is a bit much to me.

If true, lol.

I'd tend to believe this was true simply because something similar happened in one of my old alliances. It was a classic 0.0 carebear corp full of industrialists who can fly hacs/recons and think they are leet pvpers. One of the directors gets his ratting bs killed in a belt, decides to be a gun ho warrior and take on a 10 hac roamin gang in a solo carrier. Promptly dies, emorages, gets into ANOTHER carrier (a corp carrier this time), and goes after the gang who by now has moved a few systems out. He was able to attract their attention with his cyno alt, hotdrops them and gets killed AGAIN. In his disbelief of a getting his carrier killed by lowly recons and hacs, he accuses the corp and other alliance directors of being cowards for no backing him down. Then he gets promtly gets booted out and rages on the forums...

Thats what happens when a full time carebears get their hands on carriers ( or , even better, dreads) and decide to pee-vee-pee with the baddies. Laughing They have Fighters 5 trained and 22m in spaceship command you know...

By the sound of the alliance and its pilots, you are better off without them.
And hey, at least you had the courage to even GO into low sec and engage someone in an expencive bs - it was a stupid move sure, still more than 80% of the empire dwelers would ever do.

it was really the dread pilots fault for even engaging without superior numbers. and the leaders fault in not realize they cyno'd one cap in, they can cyno more in. and it was your fault for simply not jumping back through the gate. since obviously, there are no women in eve, and he was simply your sex slave.

learn from it and htfu, or get off my eve. kthx.

Seriously, I'm mystified as to why they didn't just deaggress and jump back to high sec when it became clear that the geddon was bait. They were in a Mach and a CNR. Just get your ass on the gate and tank while your aggro timer cools down. The pirates didn't have THAT much DPS on the gate initially, they could have easily made it.

You guys should explore lowsec in like frigates or cruisers before taking faction battleships there there and cynoing in a dread. The pirates were most likely sitting at a safespot near the gate but off grid, so you can't see them just by visually checking the gate need to scan the vicinity, and had a cloaked alt observing the other side of it so they saw your juicy faction battleships coming in. If you did 360 scan around you would have picked their ships up.

Footfist,

Don't pay attention to the negative posts here, although some of them do make for an amusing read. Take them as such.

I feel bad for your loss, what a beautiful ship in EvE to see sploded. Sad You did your best to help a friend and were having fun doing it. You said as much, quite simply your attention lapsed, and it happens to everyone. Very bad timing is all.

Without knowing you or your corp workings, I would say it's unfortunate that your corp would view the whole thing as a set-up, when you lost what was most certainly a jewel in your hangar.

Tough loss, take a breather and come back fresh, lesson learned.

Safe travels.
