Simple concept, really. Anyone who's been on the losing end of a war knows that you have to spin. And so for those of you who enjoy watching the progress of a war, why not watch the spin?

The examples are applied to the current Great War, but they can be used in any war, even offline ones.

As the war of your choice goes on, can you collect all 38 ?


The OFFICIAL Eve Propaganda Checklist !
by James 315

[ ] # 1. Previous victories over the same opponents.
"We've beaten Goonfleet before, and D2 is just a shadow of G, which we also beat."

[ ] # 2. Enemy more accessible.
"As long as they're in Querious we can kill them. At least they're not hiding in NPC stations in empire."

[ ] # 3. Redefinition of goals.
"We never said we would take all of RedSwarm's territory. Show me where we ever said that."

[ ] # 4. Failed to live up to expectations.
"We really thought you'd be able to take one of our stations within a week, and here it is, week 3..."

[ ] # 5. Failed to meet short-term goals.
"You planned to take our station this weekend, but only managed to kill half our POS's!"

[ ] # 6. Gains out of proportion to the losses required to achieve them.
"They lost tons of ships in the process of taking a pretty worthless system."

[ ] # 7. Enemy attacks are desperate.
"Of course the attacks are intensifying, they know they're running out of time."

[ ] # 8. Inferiority of loss replacement.
"We won that battle when you consider our industry replaces our dead ships in half the time yours does."

[ ] # 9. Time is on our side.
"A long war is on our interest, since your coalition's bonds weaken over time."

[ ] #10. Behind the scenes diplomacy.
"My friend in D2 says they've just about had it with Remedial's crap."

[ ] #11. Behind the scenes resources.
"If you examine the killboard closely, you can tell they're almost bankrupt."

[ ] #12. Minimization of victory.
"If they weren't so incompetent, they would've killed ALL our capital ships in that battle."

[ ] #13. Loss was diversion.
"While they were distracted, we secretly moved resources into a critical location."

[ ] #14. Favorable supply lines.
"The battle is taking place fifteen jumps from NOL, but they have to travel forty jumps."

[ ] #15. Less than 100% effort.
"They've only seen a fraction of what we've got. Are you ready for total war?"

[ ] #16. Meaningless losses.
"Nice job, but Fountain is Xelas, not BoB territory."

[ ] #17. Linear war duration calculating.
"At this rate, it will take them over five years to conquer all our stations!"

[ ] #18. Beneficial game changes.
"Once they add constellation sovereignty, we will become invincible."

[ ] #19. Redrawing the starting line.
"At this time last year, we had four regions, and now we have six."

[ ] #20. Minimization of goals.
"To be honest, we never expected to hold more than five regions, the rest is gravy."

[ ] #21. Shortening of defensive lines.
"Defense will become much easier now that we're only defending four regions, instead of seven."

[ ] #22. Secret weapon.
"It can't be revealed yet, but SirMolle has a few surprises in store for our enemies."

[ ] #23. Victorious withdrawal.
"I'm pleased to announce that we have rescued 20 billion ISK of assets from an enemy station!"

[ ] #24. Endless resolve.
"They've made an enemy for life. I won't stop fighting even when I'm down to my last .01 ISK and an Ibis."

[ ] #25. Supremacy of willpower.
"Keep your morale up. They can't destroy us, only we can destroy us."

[ ] #26. Trimming the fat.
"I'm glad those people left our coalition, they were freeloaders."

[ ] #27. Silence is golden.
"Our leaders don't have time to keep making speeches, they're too busy working on killing the enemy."

[ ] #28. Saved by the enemy.
"Don't worry, AAA isn't stupid enough to allow D2 to upset the balance of power in the west."

[ ] #29. History writing.
"No matter how this war turns out, we've all been involved in something big."

[ ] #30. Posterity maintenance.
"They'll make a movie about this some day. Will the audience cheer or boo upon your appearance?"

[ ] #31. Defeat is not defeat.
"Sure they can take all of our regions. But they can't HOLD them."

[ ] #32. It's for fun.
"This is just a game. The only thing that matters is that I'm having fun."

[ ] #33. Failure of followship.
"SirMolle didn't fail us. We failed him."

[ ] #34. Defeat is freedom.
"Fortunately we can leave POS wars behind, and spend time on pew-pew!"

[X] #35. We have destroyed Goonfleet.

[X] #36. We WILL destroy Goonfleet.

[ ] #37. We MUST destroy Goonfleet.

[ ] #38. We must not let Goonfleet destroy us.

I forget, what's the best way to re-kill the undead? Shotgun or chainsaw? (Can I use a flamethrower too?)
