Originally posted by RollinDutchOriginally posted by Urza123Third, I do agree with you on one thing, new world war is comming soon. One that will be a lot bigger in size then the Great Norther War, since population of EVE has doubled since that time. Everything is in place it is only a matter of time before true major ego's will clash. We have to attibute much to the reasons of why it is going to happen to Devs because that is where they are leading this whole thing to. Giving us more and more tools to wage wars on massive scales.
I agree Urza. Its impossible to make players quit who are strongly determined. Which is why I question the wisdom of this move, because they have set the criteria for victory in such absolute terms.

Originally posted by Urza123Well never say never. As for will never be on such scale.....well when BoB/ASCN will clash together I am sure a lot of corps will jump on that band wagon. I can tell you one thing that day is comming and I think that it will be sooner then we think.

Originally posted by Rod_BGuilt by association has always been one of the standards in Eve. Your association with people determines your reputation and status more then do your own actions in this game. If anyone is strict in applying this principle it's BoB.
And I thought CELES were the masters of "associative warfare" *g*
On a more serious note: This whole matter got out of hand very badly, and I wonder if more should have been done by the community as whole to "soothe the waves" a bit. While we may get nice footage of huge (lagged?) battles, I am not so sure that such a "rift of hatred" among a large number of the active community is that good. I have no problem with BoB purging Goons from EVE (or the other way round, even if the chance of that happening like our sun going supernova in the next 2 days), but mingling RL issues that much with in game issues and winding up on that can't be good. These are the situations we can thank the long standing feuds and wars of RL. While some may credit EVE for such things being possible at all, I certainly see it as a sign that humans will never change. We will always carry the crap of our forefathers around and shoving it under our "sworn enemies" noses.
I understand that a lot (likely even most) of BoB and Goon members simply see it as a possibility to have fun and shoot stuff, but somehow this whole issue is really depressing if you think about it, tbh. It would be nice if we could forget this matter and just move on with playing a game, but I forsee a war of attrition that will pale the GNW.

Designers need to move away from the old D&D level-based model which was never designed for player vs player combat in the first place.
Originally posted by fizzle322As far as I can tell BoB doesn't HAVE any competition, it doesn't have any rivals, just people on their schitlist.
By the way, I think that Remedial showed true brilliance by declaring war today on IRON, BoB, D2, RISE, and RAZOR.
And no, I'm not kidding...or am I?

On a side note, I just saw a goon (Tag <OhGOD>) Get blown un in Jita.... Sounds like the Goons may have more to worry about then just BOB and company....
If you look at the map, and switch to "ships destroyed last 24 hours," and "pods destroyed last 24 hours," you will see where the Goons are, and Jita and Kisogo seem to be areas of Goon activity.
I think the Goons knew that this next week was going to see a lot of heavy losses. Then again, I'm not sure that really matters to your average Goon. Let's just say that from what I can see about the Goons, the alliances are doing exactly what Remedial wants them to do.

I think BOB needs to grow up. This was just an escuse to declare war on another 'big' corp. I'd rather them come out and say that they just feel like having a large scale war rather than blame it on something that should not have caused such drama.
No matter, I agree it was isolated insodent that the corp should have been informed of and taken care of itself, at least this is how a rational realist would have delt with it. However it's a game and people don't think twise about their actions in them.Some higher ups wanted war and wanted to make their mark on the game's history, they found a scapegoat of a reason since they don't want fingers pointed at them for starting conflict just for the sake of a war, and here they've got something one can easly twist to feed their own purposes.Kinda makes you think of war now adays. We just can't live with someone elses point of view, so we gotta blow them upBENIFACTORS:1) The good news goes to those crafters not in direct alliance with any of the sides. The more things go boom, the more people have to buy. And people don't go to war with cheap ships or equipment, they buy the best of the best. Though most of these corps will have their own crafters, something so large will reach out to everyone2) With all these organizations at eachother's throats, the renigade pirates might just be benofiting. With the corps more worried about killing the other corp, the pirates are less of a target and can sit back, let the corps duke it out, and sweep in to pick off the rest and get the spoils.Galactic War at it's finest is springing to life, subscribe now and watch the carnage!
Top Ten Most Misused Words/Phrases in MMO Industry...
Originally posted by Beatnik59To make a long story short, a BOB member put a link to a certain forum signature on either the SA or the GoonFleet forums that many took offence to concerning a deceased player. BoB thinks that it was a sick gesture, so they got pissed and declared war. They are mad, and they are saying that they want to erradicate GoonFleet for the sake of the community.GoonFleet argues that the forum sig was about four months old, and an isolated case that should have never been brought to the official forums in this manner. They argue that it is disgusting BoB would make such a public spectacle out of this just as a pretext for war. The Goons are saying that this is stirring up the "honet's nest" like nothing else before or since.That's the basics of it, but the locked threads can go into more detail. I can't say that either side is blameless, but all I know is that its gone waaaayyyy beyond civil. Its personal.

Way to take it to 'em Goons...Goodbye.
Sadly its a game of numbers anymore. BoB showed that with their lag war in EC. Goonswarm has the numbers to do alone what BoB and ASCN did in EC so I don't see any damage being inflicted on them. The only way to beat an alliance of any size now is from within. You can't beat lag.
Originally posted by squeeeBoB has the capacity to win, proof is in the pudding. Their past exploits and engagements have left them the victor in almost all cases. Honestly I can think of only one time they did not accomplish their goal.D2 (formerly G) have the capacity and allies needed to win. In the past in the north I have called this group of pilots friend and enemy. They are a tough nut to crack, even when you attack their surrogate region.What do these two alliances have in common? A proven histroy of prevailing through full scale engagements.Goons IMO do not have the history or resolve to outlast this war. And as far as I know goons have lost to D2+allies twice already now. IMO it looks like goons just want to go out with a bang, and are tired of the game.
