Only a $120 dollars a year to be a Goonswarm Federation Member?

Hmmmmm, Yea... That must explain the T-shirts.... Bet you have Cake too Laughing

After 3 pages of posts..... I can begin to see the Goonswarm Federation is on its last legs, now anyways...

We are on our last legs, we are losing sov in deklien, we have no capital ships, and our posting is terrible.

And yes I spend $120 a year. It is totally worth it. I also buy the quarterly t-shirts and the mugs and shotglasses. Thats what being a goon is about.

Of course as an investment banker for a major worldwide bank, money comes easy. Paying to be in the best alliance in the game is definitely worth it, considering I spent more then that on lunch and martinis some days.

Of course I am. While I may not be one of the head honchos, I do well and am respected by my peers.

What? Do you think goons are a bunch of 15 year old children? The average age of people in Goonswarm is around 28 years old. We are all college educated intelligent hard working individuals.

Let me leave you with a College age quote, you might appreciate.

"Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest." Benjamin Franklin

With all do respect, Stop making up stuff you can't substantiate... You may be a great, Smart, Rich, Pretty, person in RL.. But no matter who is part of the Goonswarm Federation. You are judged by your actions, and not your words..

And from my angle (unless you can Prove otherwise) the actions of the Goonswarm Federation are pretty much leading to their own undoing....

If you said Hedge Fund Manager, you may of had me...Smile

Actually No, but Thank you..... Its is well known among Goonswarm Federation... It is nothing for you not to be proud of. You guys are pretty decent at it.... It does not mean you don't have likeable people, in your alliance either.. They just play the game in a manner, I don't find fitting for my type of game play.

And even if these are not actions you practice yourself, by aquuiescing to them. You in the end approve of them.

Remember too.. It was not one man who ambushed me but 19. In addition I have actually had very pleasent conversations with many in your Alliance... Including those who now benefit from my stuff.. All pretty nice RL people.

Me A Fool yes, but for trusting strangers....

In the end the Propaganda that arose from this Rouse... I find really quite Intriguing... So keep on bumping the thread as often as you like..

But if your trying to prove that the Goonswarm Federation Pilots are the Mother Theresa's, and Einsteins of EVE.... I will be more than entertained by your efforts.Smile

The Question I should be asking is? " Do I judge you (a single person), based on the actions of five thousand in your alliance?

Only with respect... ugh (had to add smileys in the edit)

Ok, so I have heard of their history of recruitment scams.

I get why someone might fall for paying something if they are a noob or not heard of them or whatever.

I have no clue why someone would jump to them when they have not even been accepted in corp yet.

Typical Story line.. The guy who approves the Apps is out of town or busy, but you are, A go do dock at the POS. In the meantime they peronalize themselves by talking about their kids, family, sick mother, what they are doing on the weekend etc... Things to make themselves appear more trusting and human to you in RL.

You figure they can scam and ambush you just the same, even if you are in corp....

One if The biggest mistakes you can make in this sand box...

Is assume everyone in the game thinks like yourself. Well Welcome to EVE Twisted Evil

It boggles my mind thinking of why you'd ever want to join Goonswarm-- but then I'm reminded of the caliber of players that are interested in joining falling for the stupidest and most obvious scams in Eve and it all makes soo much sense...


Reasons why I like playing in goon guilds:
Goons give very few fzuks about stuff,
Goons give very few fzuks about stuff,
Goons give very few fzuks about stuff,
and goons laugh at people who do.

A lot of people in a lot of games try to get so "hardcore" into the game that they micromanage as many aspects of it that they can, devote untold hours of dedicated effort to it, buy into some sort of imaginary hierarchy of elitism and game-derived social status, develop emotional attachment to their pixels, and in general lose track of just relaxing and having fun with the game. Goon guilds see all of that as so much bullszit are all about doing the exact opposite. Sure there is the occasional poopsocking sperglord, without whom a guild just wouldn't function, but most of the guys and girls in a goon guild are just here (or in whichever other game) to have fun and fzuk around—find stuff that's fun in the game, exploit it and take advantage of whatever mechanics allow you to get the most fun and profit out of it, and make fun of the people who get way too involved and yet still somehow manage to be less effective than a bunch of clueless idiots whose only goal is to fzuk around and enjoy themselves.

Most people don't "get" that mentality, look down on it, don't want to be part of it.

Forsooth, brave space knight, go ye forth and put into the infidel the fear of the nigfleet.

Yes, Phione you're FAIL if you don't:

Live and breathe the C&P forum

or if you:

--Screw up a Google search
--Pick a fail corp (such a rare thing indeed)
--Try to expand your Eve experience
--Turn a negative into a positive, or attempt to
--Have a bit of difficulty absorbing all there is to know about the game (or have a RL)
--Spend more time flying a ship than writing/reading about it
--Wait to be active in the forums until you discover its potential benefits

And, no, people don't read or miss old news either (Funny, I work in an an industry that profits quite nicely from the majority who do).




You forgot "using the word 'fail' as an adjective or noun" on your list of things that make you a fail. HTH.

Goons, like BOB, love their rep. They love to be hated.

Your best bet is to ignore pleas for attention.. and learn not to trust anyone completely in EVE.

Honestly I find the recruitment scams hilarious. Every mmorpg I've played the biggest guilds/corps/alliances always get the most carebear applicants, and if they're scamming the most gullible then good for them. Not to say that goons haven't turned into a carebear alliance, but that happens to every big corp/alliance eventually so whatever.
