To Oveur, Kieron and friends, Have fun! :)

Dilemma 1.
On a drunken night of pvp you end up 60 jumps deep in 0.0 enemy territory.
You and your fleet gets so badly pwned you fall off your chair and go to sleep.
The next day you login and have two options to get out;

a) Buy a 150 million isk shuttle and risk 14 pages of "LOL" on forums.
b) Pod jump home with full +4 implants and 1 extremely rare Hardwire implant.

What do you choose and why?

Dilemma 2.
After getting back to empire, You find yourself mining for a new battleship.
In the belt, a little cute indy flys up next to you, and rubs against you in a friendly and wholesome way.
The pilot does this in local-> :)

You look in your can....and its now empty.

Do you:

a) Scream "&*^%&*$^...ORE THEIF!!" in local, whilst waving your arms hysterically as if he just stole your soul.
b) Go buy secure containers and anchor them next to the other 1000 in the belt.
c) Get your indy and give him a hand.


Dilemma 3.
After building your new bs you take it back to 0.0.
16 alliance members tells you the next system is clear.
You jump in and land in the middle of a medium warp bubble with about 60 enemy ships around you.


Do you;

a) Pretend they havent seen you and slowly crawl out the bubble whilst whistling 'im a barbie girl'
b) Hold your cloak whilst typing in local 'hey guys the node has dropped, lets all reboot!"
c) Go nuts on TS, knowing full well that you are probably already in Jita by now.
d) Type x in local, followed by "guys I think your overview is bugged, gimme gang invite"


Dilemma 4.
After being sent back to empire via a omgexpress 1st class podding, you find yourself back in the asteroid belt mining.

You warp to the belt and find its full of npcs. As you try to turn arround you find you are stuck on the biggest motherf... piece of scordite you have ever seen in your life.


Do you;

a) Try to mine it to death for the sake of your freeedom
b) Scream in local you are being 'attacked' by pirates and a scordite and need assistance
c) Go to the shop and buy some beer because its turning into one of those sorts of days.

Dilemma 5.
[i]You're sitting in the station contemplating why you suck today, and decide to have a look on escrow for a cheap replacement mining ship.

Whilst looking, you see a 0.00 isk escrow. On closer inspection it contains a Dreadnought BPO and 2 units of long limb roe.


Do you;

a) Claim it and yarrrr!
b) Claim it and give it back
c) Claim it, escrow the 2 units of long limb roe back to the owner with the message "dinner is on me"

Seeing as they're devs, use secret option 'x' that allows someone with access to the servers, etc to do whatever they like.

Dilemma 1.
a) with a full set of +4s the potential loss would be in execess of 1bil for a 10% outlay i dont think it would be too hard to take but in reality id probibly just send an alt in a shuttle to come get me.

Dilemma 2.
probibly non of those, id either get over it and cary on mining or chase after his indy in a suicide ship for a bit of fun.

Dilemma 3.
probibly c) id also exept my inevitable fate, and try and get out of the bubble befor my pod explodes.

Dilemma 4..

1) (c) Log in an alt, deliver a ship. On the other hand, I can't afford +4 implants in the first place...

2) (d) You wouldn't find me mining, you might find me cloaked and waiting for criminal flagging from you opening that can after the upcoming changes. The battleship might have webs and scramblers too :)

3) (c)

4) (d) Still not mining. Kill the npcs. Drink beer.

5) (a) just "Claim it, yarr!" You don't want to push your luck after a bad day. Besides, you're drinking beer.

Dilemma 1.
Where's the option with more beer? Chosing either option would require more beer. I would have to drink myself into the same state as the previous night's revelry so I wouldn't care about the 15 LOL pages as I shuttled my way home.

Dilemma 2.
d) Crack open another beer, unfit the 5 Basic Miners my Eidolon is busting rocks with, load out UltraViolent Hurty weapons of Doom™ and wtfpwn the thief.

Dilemma 3.
e) Pour another beer, laugh maniacally and activate the Titan Ubar Ubar Death Blossom SooperDooper Weapon.

Dilemma 4.
c) Go to the shop and buy some beer because its turning into one of those sorts of days.

Dilemma 5.[i]
Is this a trick question? Where's the beer? Laughing

It's a fun flick, albeit an old one. That and the graphics Oveur had up on the screen at the FanFest in his presentation reminded me of the outright destruction of the DB. 100 ships on screen one second, 100 explosions moments later! UbarYARRbq pwnage! Laughing
