Hello,

The learning-skill-whine week is over, you've all been doing an excellent job at spamming forums repeatedly with great trolls.

But the Bitter Vet Council has decided that this week's topic will be the Noctis and how it makes it so much easier for noobs to salvage (making reference to the game getting dumber and closer to WoW are appreciated)

Seriously.

I remember when we had to salvage by hand after entering a mission 30 AU away in a snowstorm flying an Ibis with no warp capabilities.

This has to stop!!

You were lucky to be able to fly an Ibis and using your hands to salvage. We started playing the game with negative wallets and SP, so we were forced to using cardboard boxes instead of noob ships. We were also forced to using free experimental clones with severe neural damage, that made using your limbs impossible. Because of that we had to salvage wrecks by only using our tongues and had to take it back to the nearest station 200 AUs away, without any engines, one piece of salvage at a time because we couldn't afford anything with a cargobay.

But we were happy in those days although we were poor.

Bitter vet council ... so is this the right place to offer some walking sticks left from a tourist transports an agent recently gave me?

I'm pretty sure most of the people complaining where new players and people saying bitter vets were angry.

I didn't actually see any bitter vets that disagreed with the change.


there was like guy that was mad about a tiny sp rate reduction, but he was mostly ignored by the "OMG BATTLE % OVERNIGHT!" crowd.

Hmm. And I'm overly cynical and pretty much despise humans as a breed.

We should have coffee or something.

Why do you people not upgrade to Veteran Subscription then? It's the price of six accounts!

With it you get a single character slot (cannot transfer and only the original bloodlines available). The client code is optimized to introduce random lag-spikes and blackscreens. It's always a rainy Monday as well as Friday the 13th. Tritanium randomly morphs into rabid grizzly bears if you keep it in your cargohold for any measurable amount of time. There are no exotic dancers as they all turn into banana slugs and your character has a deadly immuno-response to salt.

If you pay an extra accounts worth your own client will then randomly provide you with noob wow-speak so your local is filled with people that are LFGing or WTS something. Others will be looking to join raiding guilds or just want to compare epics and theorycrafting notes! You will NEVER be alone again with the Bitter Vet Subscription Model™!

Bitter vet here, i couldn't give two ****s about learning skills being removed. I've said they were a stupid idea since i started.

Making attributes smooth across the board was the bad idea.

I remember when you hit your warp button and prayed to every divine being you could think of that you landed in the remote vicinity of the gate you wanted to go to.

Good times...

There'll definately be another one following the date that it actually happens.

True story.

My son and I were at a restaurant and ordering our drinks. My son ordered for me and said...


"My mom likes her tea as cold and bitter as she is"


Sigh. Time to trash the pirate alt:P

You had a cardboard box??

OMG DEVHAXX.. I would have sold my tongue for a cardboard box.. but then I'd have had nothing to salvage with!
