This is the most epic thing i've seen in a long time. Congratulations to the well carried-out plan and the at least temporarily achieved peace in highsec, where as of now, one less egomaniac supertroll will reside.

I raise my hat, Gentlemen!

b) falling for Morin's gambit


'The Morin's Gambit'

A phrase perfectly coined.
from this day forward, 'Morin's Gambit' shall refer to actions where one player purposely drops the SS of another player through a cunning trap.


Wow, I'm really stunned by the huge amount of positive feedback - thank you a lot, guys Smile

I think it would be pretty cool to call such actions a "Morin's Gambit" from now on, but if we tried to push this forward ourselves, the term would look quite forced. You know what to do Cool

On another note, the Video of Socratic's Fall is now available in low and high resolution - enjoy! YARRRR!!

Thank you Zedrik and Morin for bringing real content to the Crime and Punishment forums.

I am really amazed that your plan worked out. Although, I am even more amazed that Socratic believes he can rat his sec status from -9.8 to -2.7 in 24 hours time.

He does have a few more hours right? Last I checked he is now -9.7.

k...

Anyway thanks for the thread and the videos. Also a big thank you for whoever attended the disco party.

I rather thought these threads and the local pasting in a blog where rather childish, self-congratulatory ************s. The banter was kinda sad all around. The only funny thing was how loony-toons Socratic is, but you can get that any day by visiting Arnon.

This conclusion though is pretty f'n epic and is probably going to be a major footnote in New Eden history. Finally got to watch the video last night and learn how exactly you guys got him to newb-bomb in hisec. Very vicious, very nice. Stoked my evil-genius brain centers quite nicely.

I'm almost certain he cried himself to sleep that night, which is sad....Sad....but funny as hell because it's not me. Twisted Evil

It was pretty epic...but as for it being a major footnote? The IEEE's previous adventures (ThGuy/ThCEO/Joe Phoenix) have long faded and are barely known or remembered outside the C&P regulars. This one too will pass and only be vaguely remembered because of the epic video that has been provided.

But that is okay. It just leaves room for whole new sets of shenanigans.

I've still got one week left on my Socratic contract. I need to move a hictor into lowsec now. Soc's busy running SOE courier missions out of Amod. I do beleive I have a Joe Phoenix special one lying around.

I used his undock bm to try for his viator, but he may still use it. Let me know if you want it.

Oh, he was still using his Viator...it is dead now.

New Socratic Files...countdown to end of contract...4 days.

TL;DR: Zed makes new friends in lowsec. And Socratic loses a viator..and a pod. And zed loses his Joe Special Phobos.

Oh wow, laughed my ass off when i checked our kb this morning and saw you on it Zed, nice to hear you got Soc first though. Next time if I'm online I'll see if I can get some guys to come help out rather than blow you up.

Nice catch, Zed YARRRR!!

I also just realized the bitter irony of Socratic's favorite quote (according to his bio):

Quote:
I go where I please, when I please.


Except high-sec? Laughing

Every once in awhile I hear about Zedrik Cayne absolutely destroying some idiot in highsec. The stories always give me great enjoyment and I walk away with a half-chubb at the thought of the ownage he has caused.

This is one of those times. My hat is off to you, good sir.

It's true, there's a super secret government agency whose job it is to hand out gold stars for being super duper smart. Haven't hard of them? Well, you probably aren't MENSA material then.

It's sad, really. There just aren't enough MENSA out there to save us.

Zed...every single time you start a new story, I get this need to come and join you...but every time I do get that need, I check my sec status and moan at the grind to get back to highsec :P...and every SINGLE TIME I decide not to do it...AND EVERY SINGLE TIME I am kicking myself because I missed something EPIC!!!

Thanks for making C&P entertaining again...now all we need is the IRS back. lol

It's short...

But the locals don't seem to like Soc at all either.

For playing this game so long he sure as hell doesn't know how to fit. 4 large shield extenders!

Not going to lie, 1v1 it can work. His drones chew up a single ship pretty damn good.

Yes, but then you would have to travel to Amod, to the Sisters of Eve station there.

Good news for those folks waiting for his triumphant return to Arnon in 24 hours though..he's up to -9.5. (Which, is 0.05 sec gain per day or so. If he can keep that blistering pace up. He can get back to -2.5 in 140 ish days. And as we all know, it gets slower the higher sec you actually are.)

EDIT: Quote fail...doh!

The locals still don't like soc.

But, he seems to either be running out of isk, or at the very least trying to make himself a less worthy target.
