The least you could have done was steal some stuff or blow up some unsuspecting goons on your way out.

I'm disappointed...

Excellent post, thanks for taking the time to write it, makes me wonder how you ended up in GS. The Goons have made it clear they aim to ruin eve, this just confirms my suspicions about them.

Thanks again for writing this, it must have taken a while, but it was worth the read.

Its seriously time you kept your nose out of things mate - Its undignified

SKUNK

What's that stench? Oh, it's just Skunk. Seriously. Shut up.

It was a Goon that helped me out when I first started EVE. Advised me on what skills to train. Even gave me some stuff he left in a Caldari station, even when I said there was no need. He's still in my buddy list. As a result, I was under the assumption that GS was OK. None of the Goons I came across caused me any trouble, nor did I see them giving anyone greif. And they seemed like a decent enough alliance.

Now, do you have any idea how I feel about GS as an alliance after the threadnaught and this? You don't want to know. Neutral

In anycase, got nowt but respect for the OP.

Serious post this time. You were pretty likable and it's unfortunate that you're leaving. Furthermore, Lenny never should've given you director roles, but oh well. Also, you're not a goon. My goon friend made it pretty clear that unless you're an SA member, it doesn't matter how else you join Goonswarm because you're not a goon. So I'm not a goon either, but I think most of the people playing this game need to die in a fire, so that's all the common ground I need.

Interesting, now you attack your own? Perfect.

And it is odd that so many GS seem miffed by this post.

1. As I said, my post was actually my last act as a Recruitment Director, informing Eve of what GS is like so that: a) those interested in being a**holes can go where they are appreciated; and b)those not interested can avoid GS -- and not get scammed by giving ISK to any GS member who says they can join for XXXmillion ISK.

2. I have said nothing that they themselves have not already stated, and stated with great pride, I might add. I simply put it all in context, the context of my life in 0.0.

3. I am not crying about anything. Simply expressed I don't share in the typical Goon sense of humor, right vs. wrong perceptions, and definition of "fun." Not really crying, is it?

Goons were good to you and you gave us a weepy wall of text in return, thanks for this.


The Goons did take me in, at the risk of me being a spy. I appreciated that. But I was not, nor could I have ever become, a true Goon -- as the identity of a Goon was defiend very well last night by Mawg. In his own words: "jerks," "not nice" "a pariah," "cruel," "sadistic," "a**holes."

If I lived up to that way of playing, Ultrapolite Socialites would now have no more BPOs, I had access to all of them (dozens of them, some very nice), as well as their corp wallet, me being a director. I left it all where it belonged. I was not a GOON -- a good thing for Ultrapolite Socialites.



Good luck with whatever you choose to do in the future Eleuthereus. I was in a similar position as you over a year ago when I joined a Goon Guild in another game as a "pubbie spy". At first I was shocked at the Goons sense of humour and found it quite distasteful at times, but after a while I realized that it wasn't serious and was meant as ironic "meta-humour." It's a lot easier to understand when you know that quite often the people who are using offensive terms like the ones you describe are in fact black, Jewish or homosexual themselves. (In Dungar's case he's all three). Unfortunately you didn't stick around long enough to realize that.

Anyway, as I said previously, good luck finding an organisation that meets your needs better than we do. We all play the game to have fun and if you're not having fun it's obviously time to move on.

Nice read and all. I can't help but wonder two things:

1. Why the hell did you stay in there for so long, if you didn't like it? That just seems like idiocy.

2. Regarding the whole "wanting to ruin eve for the enemy" stuff. What is the difference between GS and BOB? I am quite convinced if you ask most of the ASCN guys, BOB was downright griefing them, making their EVE abo****ely horrible, and thoroughly liking it. Am I the only one remembering the smack that CYVOK was the victim of? He was ridiculed openly on these forums, the alliances was mocked, flamed, trolled in every imaginable way possible in these forums. The objective: To make ASCN give up, no doubt. But frankly, by the sound of it on the forums, people in ASCN didn't enjoy the game fighting BOB one bit(I'm sure some of those who joined BOB from ASCN disagrees).

Now, to get back to the question, what is the difference? GS wants to make the game miserable for their enemies. So does BOB, and that's how you win. Kill morale, kill the alliance. Regarding GS trying to "destroy" EVE by their in-game gimmicks, I cannot really see how that happening, and I might have missed it, but I did not read anything about out of game stuff regarding GS destroying EVE(there was an awful lot of text).

If someone could enlighten me how GS is massive destroying this game, while BOB, conquering and belittling, ridiculing, mocking their enemies on these forums, are somehow the "good guys"? Hell, they even said so themselves, they want to conquer all of EVE. How can that NOT be ruining EVE as we know it?

Funny how the goonies are working SOOOO hard to get this post closed.

I thought he is sharing your true feelings regarding Eve but he just didn't fit in himself? Your attempts to get this post locked prove otherwise. Wink I have not heard from any goonswarm that what he says is full of lies, so why on earth are you trying so hard to get the post locked?

We are spinning something?

Pretty good read, apart from the stuff about scamming allies. That's just not true (not that I expect anyone to believe me). We are unendingly loyal to our allies and scamming them gets you kicked out so fast your head will spin. Yes, even on alts. It's a shame you never really understood us and joined us at the very worst point in our existence.

Oh well. I guess we learned an important lesson here: never show mercy to pubbies, or this sort of public wailing and overblown moral posturing is sure to happen. Next time some friendly seeming-person asks to join up, we will just pod them back into the stone age instead.

I will have you know that this thread is moving 3 times slower than any thread on the first 2 pages of BYOB. This isn't them spamming a thread out it's just random people posting in a thread relevant to them (in case you hadn't noticed there's 4000 players in alliance and maybe 15-20 of them posting here).
