I doubt this too. Wasn't there a thread last year about supposedly the same thing?

Is this real? I sincerely hope it's not, but I kinda have that sinking feeling it is.

I only flew with Minigin in-game one time, but that was all I needed to figure out what kind of guy he was. He was awesome. He was scouting ahead of us in a Bellicose and all the while typing in fleet intel along with random jokes. The words eccentric & hilarious barely begin to describe him. Needless to say he rushed headlong into a fleet of ships and died before we could arrive to back him up.

I hope you had an up to date clone. You'll be missed.

Minigin was someone I knew very well both on and off the internet and sadly I can confirm that not only is Otocinclus not one of his alts (he is in fact a former corpmate) but also he did tragically take his own life earlier today.

Normally I'm not a fan of these threads as they invite trolls and *******s to wander in and **** on what is a very serious matter to friends and families. It also invites people to lie about what is a very serious subject in the future. In this case however Minigin was not only a close personal friend of mine but also a well known forum personality and while not everybody agreed with him about the state of eve you would be hard pressed to find anyone who truly hasn't heard of him.

I hope that those who did know him can temporarily put aside their internet differences and come together to at least think fondly of someone who deeply cared about this game, even if not everybody agreed with his viewpoint. His family is not in the best shape at the moment and those of us who knew him well are all in a bit of shock. He truly will be missed.


If it's a serious matter for friends and family why is it being posted on a forum

I... I really don't know how to say this. To all you trolls out there, **** you. I knew Mini IRL. I was good friends with him even when I moved states.

Mini may have been an internet troll, but he was a good friend. I can't believe he would do something like this.

Sympathy for suicide? No, I do not have this. However cowardly he took his life to escape a temporary problem, I hope he rests in peace.

Minigin, my best friend.

I first met Minigin back in mid 2006 back when our lime green warrior was but a noob. We became fast friends and he became something of an older brother to me throughout the years he gave me good advice or his opinions on what I was up to at the time. (Somehow I was always failing but mini did practice his own brand of tough love)

In late 2009 my Friend the lime green warrior now in his fighting prime asked me to join his new alliance WE FORM VOLTRON. I did not think twice I signed on the dotted line and I was ready for everything. I will never forget the times we spent roaming in our Vigilant’s “stiffus Blackus” and “Firmus Blackus” You gave me much in those days and I would like to think I gave you something back.

For the last year my friend has been in and out of Eve online weather it was looking for religion or pretending to study for his degree or even charging across the plains in your heavy tank. He was still there to give me advice and to chat when I called. I would like everyone to join me in wishing our lime green warrior best of luck on the great forums in the sky, I hope the moderators aren’t too harsh on him and watch out for Falcons if they have those there.

I will miss you my friend you were with me thick and thin, Good times and the bad. I will carry a Civilian railgun with me always to remember you for always.

Your friend

...I really don't know if I want to post this here. I don't know if I like the idea of these threads but, well, I don't have anywhere else I can say this.

This news really got me down a lot more than I was expecting. I didn't think it was real at first... it kind of ruined my day though. I want to be completely frank with you, Minigin was a great guy. He was a real character, a great PVPer, and always brought his logi and his Civilian Gatling Railgun... after spending so long in his channel, all the hours on TS, and going on numerous ops with him, I don't know where this came from. It pains me, it really does.

He always seemed so happy, as people do when they are escaping from their ****ty real life... I never knew, and I wish I could do more.

Minigin, you will be missed.

While I disagreed with him most of the time, I still did not wish to happen this to him. My condolences to his family and friends.

My sympathy to his family.

However, if the last decade or so of internet has taught us anything, posting stuff like this on a forum is asking for trouble, there are most likely better places to post it in-game where you are likely to reach more of his friends than the trolls youll find here.

By omitting the usage of the two words, permanent and problems, from your statement you imply that suicide to escape “permanent problems” is acceptable.

So; in this case what makes you so sure it was temporary problems he was trying to escape?

In agreeance with Blane above, I vaguely remember a thread similar to this last year as well. So if this is true and my memory fails me then my condolences, if this a troll, meh.

Crappy troll, Minigin and I agreed to meet for a beer if I ever came to Melbourne, he would have told me if he was going to off himself so I could make different plans.

Assuming this is true this is the best news to the EVE community since the deployment of wormholes

Assuming this is true I am suprised Minigin had friends able to post this on Eve-O forums, body not even cold yet. Priorities I presume, or they didn't need to shed any tears either.

Too bad assuming this is true will only get you trolled

(countertrolled in the spirit of Minigin, RIAPOS)

I'm surprised at the number of people who caution against posting this thread due to it being "trolled".

This is Minigin we are talking about. Trolling this thread is a must, it's about the best way I can think of to show that he was a part of this community.

One of the worst things you can go through is having a loved one do this.

It only leaves emptiness, regret and questions with no answers.

Didn't know the guy, but I can sympathize with what his friends and family are going through.

I didn't say permanent. Still no sympathy, even if they were permanent problems. I do not have any sympathy for suicide, fin.


If you reread my post you will see that I did say that you did not say permanent Wink I just wanted to make sure that you coverd all of your unsympathetic bases considering that is what you were trying to do.

Helping trolls keep their edge since 2007.
