I'm a carebear, granted I really don't want to be a carebear anymore. But I'm biding my timeTwisted Evil.

Fact is(as far as I'm aware), it's a name for players in EVE who stay in empire space where they can't be hurt. It started as an insult at our apparantly lack of a backbone, and to be honest most players take it in their stride. Don't want to be a carebear anymore? Get into 0.0 and discover the rest of the game. Want to stay in empire space? Great, just try not to let it bother you when people call you a carebear. Because there's no way in hell that a forum post is going to stop the thousands of EVE players from doing something that they've done for years.

Like I said, most players take it in their stride, and for the msot part it's said in jest anyway.

You're right! Girls are offensive and I can see how you're angry and ashamed to be grouped with them. Therefore, I remove from you the title of Carebear and award you the title of My Pretty Pony.

As the first My Pretty Pony in Eve, you are entitled to be referred to as "DJ My Pretty Pony", or "DJMPP".

Congratulations!

carebear

1. A player who detests Player versus Player (PvP) gaming and whines about how it ruins their gaming enjoyment.

2. A player who is killed or has a loss through theft and then complains about player harassment.

3. A player who focuses their gameplay strictly on crafting or other non-competitve activity.

4. A player who is afraid of getting ganked by other gaming players.

5. Players more concerned with "coloring" their houses, clothing, names, etc... than with playing against other people in a competitve gaming environment.

6. A player who ruined the PvP MMORPG industry by complaining so much that PvP MMORPG development is rare.

"I think everyone can agree that nerfing does no one any good, Except for the carebear that was *****ing about getting killed by that class while fighting a mob."

"Call me a carebear, I don't care cos I'll just kill you..."

"This game will pwn and I can't wait to be the quasi carebear! I'm a sucker for crafting!"


I think this is the proper definition to what you are refering.




QFT, best set of definitions I've ever seen.

To quote wikipedia:


The term "Carebear" originated in the online game Ultima Online when it referred to a method of dealing with particularly violent playing stylesThe joke originally started on the Crossroads of Britannia message board where there were two large groups of roleplayers, one from Chesapeake and the other from the Lake Superior server. The latter were more into PvP and the former a more peaceful style of roleplaying. The Chesapeake group referred to the LS group as the "biker gang" and the "Carebear" term was put on the Chesapeake group. One night, the Chesapeake group invaded Silk's Tavern on Lake Superior by creating throwaway characters with names from the original TV show and "attacked" the assorted group of people roleplaying at the tavern. The attackers used hugs and "Carebear Stares!" to cuddle up with the LS group - frustrating them greatly in the middle of a large melee with other PvP groups.

The real start of this came when a PK guild, KOC, repeatedly attacked the non-violent roleplaying sessions of a group on the Chesapeake server at their tavern. Elawyn of Yew, one of the roleplayers, initiated a policy of not fighting back and carrying no items to steal, thus giving no satisfaction to the griefers. This led to the destruction of KOC due to one of the "Carebears" getting the keys to the KOC guild castle.


In eve the term has a more widespread derogatory use, expanded to apparently included those that want aspects of the game changes to advantage them and not their foes. Though given by the lengthy and heated arguments in the Ships and Modules forum, such a definition encompasses the entire playerbase.

Searicly the word CAREBEAR should not, i repete SHOUD NOT be used to call people in eve,
as meny meny get offended, such as me, and i will not standby and let this happen.

as belowe says:

Quote:

Carebears are toys that were extremely popular in the 1980s. Over 40 million units were sold between 1983 and 1987. The toys are stuffed teddy bears which were sold in various colours.

A brand-new addition to the famous toy line (2004), America Carebear is the Kingdom of Caring's most patriotic member, a happy and energetic bear who believes that America's greatest strength is in caring. Her shooting-star tummy symbol reminds America to lift up their red, white and blue by caring for those around them, and making their country--and the world--a better place.

I don't like to be defined as a "man". It implies that I'm like a woman, just without the "wo", i.e. a lesser being. I prefer the gender-neutral "myn".

Also, I eschew words such as "hernia", "hermetical" and "herpes", favouring the more male-friendly forms "hyrnia", "hyrmitical" and "romero".

Uh.. I agree that the term "carebear" is kinda random.. "empire dweller" would be more fitting.. but I don't agree about it being offensive. Why does it matter to you what people call you? If you don't like it, ignore it..

I think the Coalition of Carebear Killers might have the same problem...

Although the Coalition of Daniel Jackson Killers does have a certain ring to it :)
