We came down with a fleet of frigates so that you would have the opportunity to put up a fight. If we came down with a 25 strong gang consisting mostly of battleships would you have had been able to respond? We didnt think so, and thought it would be nice to have some action.

The whole point of gangs like the one we had last night is that they actually encorage combat, they are designed to get as much fun as possible for both sides and It was a bloody good laugh I thought.

If your going to be childish and try and pass this off as some amazing victory in the war, then you can expect us to be in your area of space every night with a fleet of 20-30 battleships (which we can and will field if you continue to wind us up, last night was the third night in a row where we have put out a gang of 25+)

At the end of the day, we are not out to destroy you as a corp. We are a roleplay alliance and real rp enemies are thin on the ground these days. We want this to be fun, dont spoil it with silly over the top claims. Write up the victory by all means, but dont over do it.

Ages ago, when you were part of an Aegis you reqested that we went easy on you. We did. Then you left and asked that we not declare war till you were strong enough, we did. If things get too heated for you we will probably lighten up if you ask nicely through ooc channels, continue like this and we wont give an inch.

If you want a war where every victory counts, where we dont charge an enemy when out gunned for the hell of it. If you want a war where we blob up and only attack with overwhelming numbers continue to act in this way.

We have long since learned not to over hype individual battles as the always end up in a flame fest. Our other enemies know this, I only hope that you learn from them in the near future.

Aye, well said Eddie Very Happy

I quite enjoy the banter on the summit, but the old thing of comparing numbers lost to numbers won soon gets old, trust us, we've all been there and done that. Its not healthy, and soon spirals down a path of no return and smack and generally silly stuff.

Eddies right, frig fleets get fights, blobs of 25 battleships do not. Im sure we could camp your stations with massive fleets for week on end, but thats hardly fun is it? But thats the way these things go, because as soon as you start spitting out we killed # many ships and podded # many pilots and were great then all your going to get is a fat battleship fleet wondering around your space. And you should know by now, thats no fun.

I like the banter on the ig so far but please all lets not descend into who-won-what ewanging. If you are posting about a battle then unless you are fair things will go pear shaped pretty quickly.

Spin is fine to a point but push too far and it turns ugly and ooc sooner or later :(

edit: damn typos

Interesting post.

Ok, lets start laying the cards down on the table shall we.

This war (which was frankly imposed upon us without asking) is basically an alliance verses a corporate war. Looking at the issue the odds arnt exactly stacked in our favour, and yes we are full aware of the possible threat of being ganked on weeks on end by battleships and whatever you can most certainly afford.

As we're an INDUSTRIAL corp that has made it plain that we CANT compete on our own, we have been looking on how to fight the war to our advantage. This means a partisan war, as frankly alliance v industrial corp have a nasty habit of going down the deepend, whatever the intent Confused

Now, I'm reading this and your complaining about what certainly seems to be a cry of 'who'se killed what', which yes I can understand to a certain degree can be a problem. However as a beseiged industrial force we're going to play things as much to our advantage as possible, and that includes public perspective.

Lessons learned from the recent incident? Yeh maybe, BUT more care could have been taken in consulting us directly as essentially we are a roleplay group on our lonesome in the big vast biginess of space (apparently it's big, and only matched by Khaldorn's ability to say scum in one sentence Razz).

Are we going to role over and play hide the minnie sausage? Not likely Wink Would we like to have had a stab at more peaceful RP with the EM instead of just piling on the same old slaver ARC thingimagig? Most certainly. Infact that was well on the way. Smile

Gimmie a convo when your online next and lets have a bit of a chat, I agree there;s no need to create a big fuss about all this.

Oh yes, yarr YARRRR!!

I like the word scum, has a nice ring to it. Laughing

Well see, you've come together with CVA and Huzzah now, which is for the best really, and to be honest, what we hoped would happen as that way we get good fights.

But your on their side of the fence, therefore a war dec was always coming your way. We do it to small corporations alot to get them to renounce slavery. But your not a small corporation anymore, so it was kind of inevitable that this would come your way. Its not helped by your characters abravise talk either :)

But lets keep up the vitrol on the summit, its fun.

EDIT: Eddie, now Kallengh has found this post can you delete the ooc bit of your post. Cheers. Pet hate! Razz

We've got something in plan that might alter the balance a bit...

BWUAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA
*goes to put his darth vader suit on*

As we're an industrial corp we'll need to have a chat on a few matters (not for discussion here, too many nasty peopel about). I'll grab one of you lads some point today.

Now what the others have said this thread sounds alright and friendly and I agree with both khaldorn and kallangh tellen, kudos to you both :) ...but this first post here seems an awful lot like this:

"uhm erhh..yeah uh...we uh....we just let you win!..we can easily beat you but uh...we uhm...let you have this one! yeah yeah thats it...we could've easily brought a big battleship fleet, but we didn't to be nice to you, cause you're small kids, so uhm im gonna threaten you ooc even though I have no reason to, and you better not celebrate the victory, cause that will be childish!!...so uh...yeah uhm erh, cause we didn't win, I'm gonna cry and accuse you of all sorts of things and talk down to you like you're kids...even though I have no reason to..so...bow down to me or else!"

Thats roughly what that post says to me...and my only answer is a big ol' confused: what the *bleep*????...dude chill out. You lost the fight, but so what? who cares..I got podded for the first time ever last night, big deal. It was all fun, and nobody is like gloating or anything, so relax Very Happy

Look, we brought a frig fleet down because it gets fights. If you wanna get technical about it, we won as we inflicted alot more isk damage than we lost.

But this is the point, if its going to get into a **** fest on the IG summit then we will bring battleships down and just have a blobfest. Eddies extending an arm here, if you want to bite it off, so be it Razz

Whatever dude, I'm not sure what part to shake my head at first..if your idea of "extending an arm" includes talking down to people and making sorry arse excuses and making threats ooc, and puffing up your chest and trying to look big, instead of dealing with it like rp'ing and games are supposed to be dealt with, a good laugh and nothing more..then I'm sorry, I'll pass..even biting it off seems like a waste of time.

My original interpretation stands.

yeah, look that came across a bit wrong. Im just saying were trying to sort this out nicely, and the attitude you have is a bit wierd to be quite honest.

Anyway, sorry if it came across as a threat. OOC is not the place for such things.

But please, take a look at how your acting as well

After re-reading my post I can see how it could be percieved as a threat, and for that i'm sorry. However I do stand by most of what I said, just not perhaps the way I worded it.

I didnt for a second say we let you win, i'd much rather we did finish off the last battleship and hold the field, we didnt..but thats no big deal. What I do find annoying is reading the summit only to find that we have apparently failed in our task and lost the war...now theres propoganda and then theres whatever the hell that was.

As for the battleship threat...well i'd much rather have lots good fair balanced fights. But if somones got under my skin on the forums, the first thing that comes to my mind is not to go tickle them with frigates, its to pound them with battleships. There are people behind the avatars and sometimes they get ****ed off.

I'd much rather sort things out here, and continue charging like a loon.
