So, you ask yourself. " I'm outnumbered, do I retreat and save all of my assets and use them again on another day effectively? "

A few things cross your mind.

1.) If I retreat, my ego is crushed.
2.) I could take a few of them with me.
3.) I do have a full set of Expanded Cargoholds ( Tech II, even. )
3.) I need another shot of Vodka.

Amid this confusion, most of us just run. No one knows a secret weapon lies within their hearts, their minds, and that near empty bottle of liquor.

The Honor Tank ( Also known as hounourourourour, if you're British. )

You could run, making them feel like they won. Knowing that you fled because they are superior, and let them walk all over you, or, you stand your ground.

If you choose to be one of the few, the proud, " The Honor Tanker, " then read on.

The first step is assessing the situation.

1.) How much did you have to drink.
2.) . . .

Forget it, it doesn't matter, you're going down in a blaze of glory like King Leonidas.

At this point, you should be fielding your most expensive ship, because YOU my friend, don't take Sh!t from anyone. You're the biggest, baddest, Mother F*cker in the valley.
When you come into battle, you warp to zero on the biggest one of those C*cksucke*s, it's time to show them who's boss. Make sure in local you start ranting.
Say things like " My alliance is coming with thousands of ships to defend my honor, to the last man, to the last capacitor notch. "

You want to get as much hesitation out of them as possible. This will ensure you get the most shots off, proving, no matter what or who they are, you will still deal damage.

Sure, they will repair it and shrug it off. But, in the back of their mind they know. You just keep coming.

Make sure you constantly bump their ship showing them you mean business. Approach them at full speed and head butt them like a Viking Warlord in the heat of victory.

Things to Consider:

THIS IS SPARTA!

NO GUTS NO GLORY!

DONT F*CK WITH ME, MOTHERF*CKERS!!!

Tactics:

You don't care anymore, you're a machine on a war path, you don't feel pain, nor fear.

You're a REAL man. Take that stick of beef jerky and rip it off, let your saliva drip down the side of your mouth, like a TRUE savage.

Then grab that bottle of liquor, take the biggest gulp and pour some on your chest. This is WAR.

After you've done that, if you're still alive, start firing on the biggest son-of-a-b!tch. Teach him a lesson.

Teach him that you're not just that "average school boy" you're a proud warrior and are defending your honor.

Let him know those cargo expanders are for the mass "corpses" you will soon fill them with in your strike-of-genocide.

Those aren't just ANY Expanded Cargoholds, those are TECH IIs MOTHERFU*KER.

Now, you take your pod, your 2 billion dollar implants, and you ram that ship.

Beat your chest like a rampant ape and let those instincts out. You don't care about anything, f*ck it, pour all of that vodka on your head, your keyboard, everywhere.

You're a BEAST.

You just made the Front Page.

A king's eldest son had just left on his honeymoon, and the king was a bit... worried about whether his foppish son would fully "appreciate" his new bride. So he hired a spy to follow the newlyweds and report.

When the spy returned the next week, the king asked him what happened. The spy said "Well, the first night, the prince said 'My lady, I offer you my honor', and the princess replied 'My lord, I honor your offer.' "

"And that was how the whole week went - 'Honor, offer, honor, offer' "






Anyway, that's all I thought of reading this thread....

No matter how you try to spin this to make yourself look funny, nobody is ever going to get past the fact that you demonstrated an unspeakable level of incompetence. The fact that you keep trying to portray yourself as "in on the joke" only serves to ruin the hilarity of the original event.

Quit while you're ahead Scius. Maybe it will blow by in the sands and we'll just chuckle about it from time to time. Maybe.

I am sure it is. Buying a char, then making it completely useless in less than 10 minutes of online suiciding, has probably made a serious hole in your wallet.

Yes, it does. This is a thread about corporation tactics for gate camps, large engagements, among other things. This is about how to respond if a corporation or alliance is blobbing you. It also tells one how to successfully operate an "honor tanked" ship.

Not quite, see the difference here is that you arent argueing a specific allaince, which after all is the whole point of this forum, as such this thread belongs in the ships and mods forums because you are discussing ship setups.

You should know that I am newly married (little over a year) The sex dept is doing quite fine thanks... Besides that, just because I am a stickler for rules and logical based thinking doesnt mean that I cant apply my talents in the persuits of sexual endevors.

I am in awe of your sexual prowess, and i think that by making sure the internet knows of your sexual activity you have become a much cooler person, and you feel far better about yourself in real life.

Even as the creator of the term "Honour tank", I think this is going a bit far.
