A blob can be 5 ships or 50, so long as you outnumber them by a ridiculas amount it's a blob or at least fit's blob mentality
for the record they didn't use any ecm, or at least if they did they didn't get a jam cycle, i nearly at least nailed the cyclone, got it into half armour.
your right, i am trolling a little becuase your posts to my non trolling thread were becomming amusing to me. I didn't start the topic to troll, i started it to gain insight into the thought process that would cause people to drain the fun out of the game by remving the challenge.

If people blob becuase they find it fun to kill a ship in a very unchallenging way (read boring) then they must be very easily amused people who don't need much to have fun. you say people don't go to lo sec for better rewards, are you sure? i know that the rewards in lo-sec are much better then high sec and judging from the modules that most definatly come from there i'd say it's a fact that people go there for rewards that are unobtainable in high sec.

The other reason is to pvp as you can't do that in high sec without a wardec or from being Concordokend, from what i've read, most people start pvping becuase they want the challenge it provides,(oh look since it comes from people's acounts it's actually evidence) thus to have more fun

The tears thing i didn't mention becuase to most pirates it goes without saying, i like to pirate or i did before it became practicly imposible without being jumped by a blob becuase i enjoyed a more challenging fight then PVE can provide and becuase it was fun to see if they reacted badly or not.

lastly i'm not whining, i'ts interesting to note that you ignore the point of the topic in vafore of trying to be insulting. The point of the topic was to get an understanding of people who blob, you spout how they do it be cuase of goals or whatever but in the heart of it, people who blob do it becuase:
they don't want to chance loosing there ships
and they want to think there capable by getting an easy kill

all that reads is to me there cowards and don't care about actually having any fun and getting good at pvping, so in the end your all right, people who blob are easily ammused and are cowardly, you did a fantastic job in pointing that out to me, quibble over semantics all you want, it's all just words.

any way, seams i got the last laugh, what was a genuine thread asking for infomation turned out to be quite funny so thanks for the laugh.





This is probably the worst game in the history of games to tell people, to insult people, who choose to play the game THEIR way and not your way. You can't define what is challenging for others and you shouldn't call them easily amused for flying THEIR way. Maybe there game is 90% chatting and bs'ing on skype/vent and 10% blowing up Claska's ships.

Hey Claska, here's a thought. Perhaps when this small gang whent to low sec they were not looking for you? Perhaps they were looking for another 6-7 guys in similar ships to have a super awesome fun fight with.

Sadly they ran into you, so they took two minutes out of their day to kill your terrible ship - because it was there.

They probably didn't spend the rest of the day talking about what a great kill it was or how much fun it was to kill you. They probably did enjoy the time it took to blow you up.

They probably then whent on with their roam and probably encountered: nothing/more noobs/similar sized gang/much bigger gang.

What should they have done? Said, hey guys its a lone ship, we clearly out gun it, lets just let it go on its way?

@op

you , like a lot of people , seem to think that PvP should be some sort of "sport" in this game , like in wow

you are wrong , pvp in eve is actually more like war, the objective is to destroy your enemy on every available field , from xploding his ships to denying his income source to breaking his will to log in even

the chalange is to survive in pvp

that said , lowsec is hardly blob land...try 0.0 for that

if you find such pvp boring...well...maybe drop this game?

oh and , as things are now , lowsec rewards are allmost allways WORSE then highsec rewards...same goes for like 70% of 0.0 space (and that`s beeing resonable)

maybe ccp is aiming for people like you , who want there pvp to be more like sport, with equal chanches and other stuff like that...maybe...but eve is not there yet

for now pvp in eve is about obliterating your enemy as efficiently as possible....that`s it. For some people that is fun...for people who can look at things medium-long term , for people interested in sov/strategic objectives/land controll /merc contracts etc...if you just wan "fair balanced fight" well...maybe ccp will catter soon but till then.._>wow

A) better rewards
b) pvp

So why, do you ruin good fights by blobbing?


You missed out c) To ruin someone's day and have a bloody good laugh imagining the resulting QQ'ing. Then, rinse and repeat.

Endless amusement. :)




your right but i thought that came along eith the assumption that you plaed in eve to have fun therefore every action taken is towards that end, still your right, i did miss that out.


I'm in it for MY fun and every action taken IS towards that end. Whether YOU'RE having fun is utterly irrelevant to me, taken as a whole. I realise we could hypothetically both have fun at the same time but, and I mean no disrespect here, that just simply isn't worth my time and effort.

If I get blown up, it's MY fault. If I blithely wander into a Blob Attack, that's MY fault. The antelope doesn't get to play the 'blame game' with the lions and lionesses - the antelope was just **** out of luck, and the lions get a workout and a nice meal.

This tbh.

If you honestly think they should go "oh, we outnumber him, lets just ignore him instead of taking the short time necessary to kill him because it wouldn't be a fair fight" or maybe "hey, he's soloing, lets fight him one at a time so it isn't too unfair a fight".... well, then you're just clueless tbh.

Ofc, Since you seem to insist that noone can find it fun to roam around in a small gang blowing up anyone they can, fair fight or not, quite possibly while talking **** on voice and having a drink... yeah, you're probably a bit clueless, that or you're butthurt and desperate to rationalize why they are pathetic blobbers who are bad at pvp and out to ruin fun while you're a GOOD pvper who fights fairly.

Get over yourself.

Wasn't EVE a spacegame where ppl like to fly in a fleet? Blobbing has nothing to do with "ruining a good fight" or "cowards". It's just a result of an MMORPG concept. The more ppl join the bigger the fleets the more blobs we have. You don't need a blob to lose your Abso. So you want a FC of a fleet tell the fleet members: "Abso at top belt. We just send in a fair number of 2-3 BC's for a good fight!" - (you will lose the Abso anyway) - Holy ****. Why do ppl not understand?

OP is an clueless idiot. There are blobs, zerg ganks, in every mmo with pew pew.

Teh sole purpose of pvp is killing other peoples pixels.

Good fights will be ruined (esp if there is an Absol on the field.)

DEAL WITH IT.

blobbing owns and if you dont like blobbing you are a terrible scrub

i blob and i do small gang pvp (i usually just dual box a falcon because falcons OWN) and its all the same. kill dudes and not die!

i like ganking some dumb **** with a gang of 30 people because it doesn't require skill. if i wanted a game that involved skill i would go play tribes or counter strike or something.

They arn't assumptions, what other reasons do people go for low sec over empire?



by indicating its not an assumption actually means u have verified otherwise, so, lets see your research proving this is why people go to low sec.

OP, you'll just have to work around blobbing. You're not going to be able to realistically fly anything larger than a frigate or nano cruiser without a scout. And if you do have a scout and still want to fly something that can't escape when pinned, you'll have to get some advantages of your own such as pirate implants, boosters, and gang links.

The upside is that a lot of people who know only the blob are pretty stupid and easy to trick (such as mwd slingshot) or are just plain terrible at piloting like the guy in the vaga orbiting in scram range because he's rarely in a situation where the physical position of his ship on the field matters due to overwhelming firepower.

Once you've got a sense of how you can exploit their lack of ability, your perspective will switch from lone player out looking for a good time to lion on the prowl for a pack of lambs, and the fun will be in separating out a sick lone lamb out only to kill it in front of his friends (or just before they land) in a humiliating way while the rest of his blob yells insults over local.

Gangbangers gotta keep their epeen up bro.

Been this way in every mmo with pvp. Hell, it's this way in real life.

Ain't no queensberry's rules anymore.
