Wow, That was a great fight to watch. Some exellent tanking by the Navy Mega pilot. I must say i very much enjoyed watching SKFailster go down in his Sin. Nothing better than a cooked Rooster for Sunday roast Laughing
****loads of respect to the Navy Mega pilot.Cool

Edit. I just noticed a few people flaming the Mega pilot for trying to self destruct his ship. TBH i'd rather self destruct than let SKRooster get his Fail hands on my lootz. YARRRR!!

As for the comment 'grow some balls' when was the last time you dropped a faction battleship on a planet knowing full well you were outnumbered in local 3 to 1? ALL respect gone for a simple self destruct? but your good with everything else?
LOL! If they cant kill me in under 2 mins with that amount of firepower its there problem!


That's not balls, that's isk/money.

The cheapest clones I fly when I PvP in frigs is still closer to 200mil. I usually don't fly frigs tho, I think the average ship I PvP in is a t2 ship with mix of t2/faction mods, can't think of a single one that cost less than 200mil. A Navy BS is just slightly over 200mil today. I got a couple of Nighmare, Paladin, Redeemers etc that I air frequent. Right now I'm scheming on a new little PvP idea I have that involves a 2man team with deadspace fitted faction ships.

But as I said, that is just isk/money. Balls, that is when you accept defeat and give your opponents respect, even when you don't like him.

If you can replace that navy mega for 200mil, do so I'll take 10 of them off your hands for say 250 each.

Semantics, you get my point. He's whining when I say it's no balls when he self-destruct his ship. The isk value of the ship doesn't matter, be it 1 mil or 25bil, so what.

As for why I brought up the number: Navy Raven go for 200mil, Navy Mega around 250 (275 on contract today, 250 and below just some day ago, fluctuate a bit). I remember my brother selling a CNR BPC for 1.2bil, when it was alot harder to make isk than it is today. Faction battleships isn't the definition of 'balls', we seen few months old players in officer fitted ships die in stupid fashions, a few weeks old players can pull in hundreds of mils per day in lv4/ratting, etc. Isk does not define whether or not you got cojoņes. It's more a matter of your attitude. Like blowing up your ship when your assault didn't go as you hoped, to try to deny your enemies the killmail and the loot.

As I said before, scamming, stealing, hell even logoffski or dishonouring a duel, all that is fine. Selfdestructing your ship.. well that's a good way of telling the world you're a ***** who can't accept defeat. Razz

But I didn't come here to insult the OP, he did a good video and I gave him props for that. He just happened to reply to my statement about balls, and his argument were as moot now (arguing isk value) as they were then (to deny his opponents the faction drops).

Believe it or not, but I'd rather respect someone who self destructs than a logoffski coward avoiding the consequences. The one who self destructs loses his ship, the one who logs off loses his reputation... The result for the opponent may be the same, but still there is a huge difference in style.

I think the word you are looking for is "magnanimous", if taking an expensive ship into a high risk engagement doesn't count as Balls in eve what does?

You do know that if you self destruct your ship it is destroyed don't you? You can't use it to escape. I ask as your posts make a lot more sense if you were under the impression that self destructing made your ship appear back in one piece in the nearest station.

This, tbh. Misanth, you're a dumbass. Self destructing is the very definition of accepting defeat.

156 kills vs 1 loss .... i dont know what you call "fail" .. but that aint it.

As for NOTR , we were not involved in that fight outside of SK jumping in for a navy mega kill.

Really? Really? You put a falcon into weapons range of a Navy Megathron? Brilliant.


You obviously don't actually understand what's going on in that fight.

Nice looking fight BTW. I found it amusing that you just about **** when the cyno went up, but it's understandable.

Yes, i love how Rooster is taking sole credit for the destruction of the navy mega! it quite clearly had absolutely nothing to do with the other 16 ships that went down trying to kill me >.<

lolumad brosef?

The point here is not that a Sin was killed, but simply the fact that we will kill anyone who we can get a point on, we dont mind losing the occasional sin (or any ship ffs) and SK Rooster is above and beyond one of the best pilots in the game. He will out tactic nearly any player in this game, and I think that when he has been the FC the fight count is about 200 ****s to 2 or 3 losses. We will fight you with less numbers, we will trap you, we will gank you, we will surprise you. Call him or anyone else station campers, but, when its Euro primetime and its him in local by himself, or me, or Bolom, or Brain, or whoever, it is not stupid to play station games when it is literally 1 in local versus the other 20 in system. Do you seriously think any fight 20 v 1 is a good idea?

Anyways, we own y9g at all hours of the day, even when no one is online. Why? Because we are chill like that. YARRRR!!

We were able to make BRUCE so uncomfortable that they left the area, and that was a 1500 man alliance at the time, I am pretty sure UFO and the Stewie whoeveridontcare club have quickly learned the same, hence, why this Sin died in low sec. GG noobs.

I'm not sure why people keep saying self destructing is cowardly. Self destruct is part of the game mechanics. In fact, in many sci-fi stories, captains of space ships have hit the self destruct in order to avoid the enemy gaining their superior tech, to stop the enemy boarding or just to stop the enemy having the glory of having "won". As this is a Role Playing Game I don't understand why this is "cowardly". In role playing terms it is actually heroic. So why so much hate for a tactic/concept which is very much part of the game?
