So to start it off, I ran into a quaint group of ISK pharmers. They had a corp set up and were running missions 24/7. All logging in at once and logging out at once. All of them fitting their CNRs with billions of ISK worth of mods. I was hoping that they might be silly enough to keep missioning after the war goes active. I was wrong! Once the war went out they immediately closed up the sweat shop and hoped into an NPC corp. Fair enough, at least they're not corp hopping endlessly, right? Notice they all quit at almost the exact same time? Silly pharmers, corps are for real players!
I always petition people using slurs like that in local. I don't mind that kind of chat in our corp chat, because we're all accepting of each others humor. However, in local, that type of comment could be very offensive to people. It is to me. It has no real place there.
So I wait for him to get out mining in his new Hulk. I scoop up another suicide Dominix and head over to pay him a visit. Scratch another Hulk off for him!
I let him know that we will dec the corps he joins at one point or another. He doubts me and I keep doing it. The thing that amazes me is not only do these people recruit him without asking any questions, they want to try to work a deal to end our vendetta against him. They know him all of 1 day and they're already trying to save him from certain death. They think we're afraid to dec them sometimes because they're in an alliance or a "PvP" corp. Not so as you know.
One of the corps lets him join and I let their CEO know we will be decing them and he learns that his new recruit brings death with him to their corp. Mind you the vote was put in and the war is about to go active and he knows we mean business now and says he will kick Sanadason. So the CEO drops me a line. His name is Clock.
hows things ?
it seems that your target is planning on leaving the corp within 24hrs (eitherway he's gettin the boot), i can help you out with info as to where his assets (BS Thorax & Hulk) are on the basis that the war dec be pulled, our corp is in no position to humour the idea of war over some smack talkin fewl ..i'd like to hope that in exchange for the info you and your guys find what your looking for and we can all get on with making some cash .. let me know what your plans are,Cheers
Of course I have heard this before from people. They try to tell us this stuff hoping we will drop the war and then keep the player in their corp. So I leave the dec active until Sanadason is truly gone. However, Clock is getting impatient with my AFK'ness.
sanadason is out of the corp, u mind removing the war dec now pls
Now keep in mind, I never said I would drop the war once the guy was booted. He just assumed this out of nowhere for some reason. So I decide to try and pop the CEO since we have no real member list and Sanadason is out of corp. Send a message to people who would harbor our targets, know what I'm saying?
So I bring out my Phobos, because I am betting anyone I run into from this corp will be stabbed up. I run a locate and plant my ass on a gate. He undocks and heads right towards me. As usual, I was right. He was all stabbed up. Now one would think that losing a shitty Caracal wouldn't drive people nuts, right? Wrong! I am guessing he had some phat implants installed because otherwise, I don't understand why people react so harshly to such a minor loss.
i guess you leave me no choice ....
blowing up a ship due to a war dec that wasnt even provoked is one thing ... podding me on the other hand .... is gonna cost ya
i tried talkin to you about removing the war dec as i removed the guy you wanted to kill .. but i guess you guys think your hard enough to have a go ... your choice bud
Once again, all the blame lies with me. It's my fault he recruited a guy who had been in several different corps within the last 2 weeks, no questions asked. It's my fault he waited till the war went live to actually remove the guy. So one would think that judging from his email, TRAPS is about to be served a swift asskicking, right? I let him know we will be looking forward to him attacking us.
Roger that. I never said I would retract the war if you booted him. I was hoping you would pop him for me, but he got away and nothing was offered to us.
Looking forward to seeing you on the battlefield. Take care.
Now the "serious" threats come into play!
you wont see me champ, youll be seein alot of my benifactors
btw if you had replied once to my messages you would have been put right in front of sanderson .. shame
we arent noobs, i was offering you the cheaper solution,
now i'll just let the griefers have there fun with ur corp & sanderson
Do these people really think such threats will work? Benefactors? So he has people who will come to his aid in cases like this? Interesting to say the least. Personally, I think he's full of shit. I asked him what kind of implants he lost in that clone, because he was so worked up over nothing.
none ... i have jump clones ... still doesnt change shit though
Anyone buying this? Me neither. My small talk will not dissuade him from putting his benefactorial dogs on us. Of course these mysterious "benefactors" never materialized. I wonder why? I kept emailing him asking if and when we can expect these benefactors to lash out and put us in our place. He initially said he was content to sit docked because that somehow made him tons and tons of ISK.
He went to CCP's site on War Dec info. He doesn't realize how out of date it is.
Clock > When a war is declared, the corporation that declares the war must pay a fee of 50 million ISK. The weekly cost to maintain a war is 50 million ISK per war active as well. If the war bill is not paid, the war will end 24 hours after its due date.
I let him know it doesn't even cost close to that.
He claims he doesn't care....
Clock > lol ... shrugs your loss dude ... im fine sittin here making cash
After a few days of making all that mad cash he quits his corp and I would drop him a line every few days asking where those evil benefactors were. He had a pretty good response....
im sure your a real nice guy in the real world, but in all honesty ... not interested ... you cant be this board you gotta hassle me lol .. im flatterd realy ...
save your self the effort, go find some noobs to wind up,
or better still .. go play in 0.0 im sure the guys out there will entertain your pirate lifestyle
take it easy,
Of course we keep hunting Sanadason and he keeps running and corps keep kicking him. He keeps sending me taunting emails. He's done this for several months actually.
Now these are the guys we love to fuck with. The best was he even tried to email me pretending to be the "new owner" of that account....
I tried talking to you the other day but I got no response so I thought I'd send you a message explaining some details and asking for some answers. I'm the new owner of this account. I said yesterday and was also told that you have been trying to kill this character for quite sometime while it belonged to another person. This person claims to no longer play EVE. As he said on the description of the selling of this account he was switching over to World of Warcraft.
Which brings me to a few questions. 1. Were you trying to kill this guy to make the previous owner mad? 2. Will you try to kill me now as the new owner? and 3. If so is there anyway we could talk this out? I'd rather just come online just to mine and build things and not pvp so If you could try to contact me to sort this out.
I let him know account selling is illegal and he comes up with different excuses. Then he claims he bought the character. I asked him to show me the thread where the character was sold in because if it wasn't done that way then CCP views it as a no-no. He keeps throwing out various explanations.....
Can't get me banned if he gave me the account for free if you have read all the policies. But if you continue to harrase me with threats I will be forced to petition you since I've tried to reason with you more then once.
He finally gives up the charade because the GM's must have said something to him because I did indeed petition him for violation of the ToS and EULA.
For someone who says he doesnt like to talk smack you sure do alot of it, so the question comes to mind why you can try to dish it but you can't take it? What did the bullies in real life make you feel helpless? Do you act big in a game because you get bullied around in real life? lols I laugh at nerds like you HAHAHA. What? Can't take smack talk but you TRY to dish it? Need a bottle? Here let me speak in your language ahem.....Goo goo gah gah..agoo goo gah gah boo boo? Goo gah goo goo goo gah!!!!!! lols Oh i read your made up stories btw. Something caught my interest. A part about where you can't see why people get so mad over a game? Well here's your answer.... it's no different then you taking the game way too serious i mean come on its a game lols and another thing about taking the bait you took it hook line and stinker i mean sinker. Hope to get more kill mails from you your my favorite wanna be fail pirate. See you soon
So we keep at it and the next corp he jumps to is in an alliance. I let them know about the drama Sanadason brings with him. Once again I am amazed that these people are willing to jump through hoops to try to settle the differences between Sanadason and I. It amazes me people put all their faith into a stranger like these guys do.
Big Trey > hey what will it take for u to forgive san for his very stupid ass mistake
Nexa Necis > an apology and a hefty isk payment would suffice
Big Trey > ok how much
Big Trey > and please be reasnoable
Nexa Necis > hehe are you friends with him in RL or something?
Big Trey > lol no but he has alot of friends in game
Who the hell is this guy friends with? I mean he must have some really influential and powerful friends if people are willing to kiss his ass and fix his problems.
Nexa Necis > id say 10mil per email i have from him talking shit and lying in each one would be fair
Big Trey > lol
Big Trey > how many did he send
Nexa Necis > 24
Big Trey > come on
I link him the pic of all the emails and he doesn't seem surprised. He said he would talk it over amongst the corp and see if they were willing to work it all out. So they convo me and agree to the terms I set forth.
Nexa Necis > what did you want to discuss?
Big Trey > oh he wanted to talk to u i think about the terms
Sanadason > Hello once agian =)
Big Trey > ok lets be civil please
Sanadason > Ok so what are the terms?
Nexa Necis > you didnt tell him BT?
Sanadason > I would like to hear it from you =)
Big Trey > this is between yall 2
Nexa Necis > i said an apology and 240mil and no more unsolicited emails
Sanadason > ok and what do I have as proof that you wont go back on your word after we part ways?
Nexa Necis > you can ask around on the main eve o forums, everyone knows TRAPS keeps our word
Sanadason > ok mail and money will be sent within 24 hours then this vendetta will be over agreed?
Nexa Necis > as long as you keep your end, of course
Sanadason > sounds good
Nexa Necis > once i get the email and the isk is there, ill respond back saying adios
Sanadason > Cool well im off got work in the morning
Nexa Necis > k night guys
Of course the next day I log in to see Sanadason's apology to me....
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YOU FREAKING FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So of course, I have no choice at some point to pay this alliance back for reneging on their deal. After all Sanadason is a member of their alliance and their alliance did help negotiate the deal on their own, without any direction from myself or my corp. I let them know we will be paying them a visit sometime in the future.
Big Trey convoes me and claims that Sanadason fucked him over too. Turns out it's all bullshit of course, let's see how none of this adds up, shall we?
Nexa Necis > yup
Big Trey > hey man this guy fucked me over to
Nexa Necis > such is eve
Big Trey > hes hiring mercs on me
Nexa Necis > well just be sure to drop a line to the ceo of the next corp he joins and tell em what he did
Big Trey > i will but can we have peace
ï»¿Nexa Necis > only if that debt is covered, the rest of the corp thinks you're all in cahoots so they want some alliance fun
Big Trey > im not payin his debt
Nexa Necis > well there ya have it
Big Trey > ok then its goin to cost u 550mil a week to war dec us and im going to join 5 more alt corps so itll cost u over a billion
I kind of wish CCP would update their website to explain exactly how wars work and exactly how much they cost. Then again, I wish they wouldn't because it fuels these people's dreams that it's costing us billions of ISK to keep their corp dec'd for months on end.
Nexa Necis > first thing you need to do is understand the war dec fees\
Nexa Necis > for a single corp to dec an alliance with no wars active is 50mil a week
Nexa Necis > ask around
Big Trey > my bad ur right
Nexa Necis > so thanks for admitting to using alt corps to exploit
Nexa Necis > good stuff
See CCP? People know the holes in the system and are quick to jump right into them to avoid conflict. I mean they're in a fucking alliance for Pete's sake! You would think that they would have a few people who can PvP, I mean, it would only make sense to have a few PvP pilots to help protect your interests, right? At least try to fight back, at least see what happens. So what if you lose a ship or two, at least you can say you tried. Instead they immediately plan to run with borderline methods to offset the war dec. Shameful.
So their alliance diplo then convoes me and now it becomes clear that the right hand has no clue what the left hand is doing in these situations. None of this makes any sense. It's not even close to being believable.
Vincent Jarjadian > Ive just been contacted by Big trey on TS
Vincent Jarjadian > i would like to know what is going on?
Nexa Necis > have him tell you, im not repeating it again. your alliance keeps convoing me asking me stuff over and over. trey made an agreement and it was broken
Nexa Necis > then he threatened to use borderline exploits to avoid the consequences
Vincent Jarjadian > what agreement did try make with you?
Vincent Jarjadian > from what i heard he was trying to help you and this person whos been antagonising you make peace
Nexa Necis > the agreement was an apology and 240mil in 24 hours. instead i log in to find smacktalk email and no ISK
Vincent Jarjadian > from big trey?
Vincent Jarjadian > i doubt big trey would do that
Vincent Jarjadian > and the other person is no longer in our alliance
Vincent Jarjadian > he was kicked
Nexa Necis > think about it
Nexa Necis > if you kicked the guy and the guy is an asshole
Nexa Necis > why is trey helping him?
Nexa Necis > what does he care?
Vincent Jarjadian > because hes a nice guy
Nexa Necis > why is he backing someone who calls people f*ggots in local
Nexa Necis > thats the awesomeness of Eve, every choice you make has repercussions, some good, some bad
Vincent Jarjadian > i think big trey would like you two to make peace so we can use this guy to help make his corp's Rorqual
Ah so this friendly Big Trey guy is willing to use another play to fill his own needs and then risks his alliance's involvement in Sandason's bullshitting just to get help building a Rorqual? Does that really make sense?
Vincent Jarjadian > if he resolves his issues with you then big trey may consider letting him back in his corporation
Nexa Necis > thats funny
Nexa Necis > because trey told me the exact opposite
Nexa Necis > in fact
Nexa Necis > trey said the guy was hiring mercs to kill your alliance
Nexa Necis > so why the hell would trey want him back in? thats plain retarded
Vincent Jarjadian > well, that guy says a lot of things.....
Vincent Jarjadian > i dont know if trey would let him back in. thats treys choice
Nexa Necis > if you think we're the only trouble he's gonna bring your alliance, you might think again
Nexa Necis > well im decing that guys corp no matter who he joins
Vincent Jarjadian > the guy claimed to have billions.... claimed to have a mothership... he says a lot of things. none of them confirmed
You following this so far? I mean it's quite unrealistic and none of it makes a bit of sense to me. Why are these guys putting so much on the line for some stranger? It just doesn't add up to me.
Vincent Jarjadian > if you want to wardec that guys corp then i personally have no problem. but hes no longer in our alliance. As long as theres no plans to wardec this alliance then i can bid you good day.
Nexa Necis > i am
Nexa Necis > i told trey that
Vincent Jarjadian > why?
Nexa Necis > because trey agreed to the deal on the basis that the guy would rejoin them and we would not dec them
Nexa Necis > he started the deal, he negotiated it so he could benefit from it
Nexa Necis > the deal was reneged, so he shares in the blame
Nexa Necis > his corp is in your alliance
Nexa Necis > collateral damage ensues
Vincent Jarjadian > give me one moment please
Vincent Jarjadian > are you really planning to waste 500 million wardeccing us?
People just seem to think they can do any old thing they want in this game and share absolutely no responsibility for any of their actions. They are above reproach in all situations. Nothing should affect them. They can shit on whoever they like and everyone has to take it and when that attitude doesn't work they fall back on the illusion of safety that an alliance provides with war costs being the prohibitive factor.
Nexa Necis > you really need to learn the war dec prices
Nexa Necis > seriously
Nexa Necis > its 50mil a week for 1 corp to dec 1 alliance
Nexa Necis > that aint nothing
Nexa Necis > we dont do it for the money
Nexa Necis > its the principle
Vincent Jarjadian > ive been informed it is 50m per corp
Nexa Necis > wrong
This is what it seems having an alliance has boiled down to. It's a deterrent to war. It alleviates most of the threats of war. Especially ones that would come from a cheap pirate corp looking for quick ISK. A little while after this we planted a few spies into the alliance for intel and comedy purposes. We have yet to execute our plan, but I tend to like to wait a while. They usually get comfy, cocky and complacent after a few months and no war dec comes through. It's just a matter of time.
Now I get a lot of "Why don't you dec people who actually fight back!" type of comments thrown at me and my corp. We do dec larger corps, they do advertise they are into PvP. Even these corps end up paying surrender fees or joining alliances and jumping corps to avoid wars. Let's see what happens....
One night I see a group of people with bounties all flying faction ship BS's running missions all day in Irjunen. I read their corp bio and it said they do all professions in Eve, even PvP. So one would think they enjoy a good scrap now and again. The name of the corp was VEA GMBH. A German corp based in Irjunen.
So the war goes through and none of them log in. When they do log in, they stay docked. This goes on for a while then the corp jumping starts. So of course I fire up the alts to declare wars against their fake splinter corps. I even score a kill or two!
They decide to jump corp again. This time into a corp that had more people with bounties who claimed to be PvP'ers.
As usual, after a bit, I get a email asking why the war took place. As usual they never believe me. I told them why, and they think someone hired us.
do whatever u want ^^ but just don't smack me. and btw, if u dec me as a contract from TERROR SOLDIER or Space91, u should know that i just alltime decced them cause they have stolen about 4bil from Corp Hangar. So if u still like to defend this Corp Thiefs, i wish ya good luck with this, but u will lose ur honor as EX REPO member than. so it is ur choice.
She says the war doesn't bother her, but I honestly think it does. Here is my response. No smack. Quite civil if you ask me.
So she doesn't want me to smack talk her? I never have, in fact, I have never spoken to her prior to her emailing me. I was civil the entire time, but it doesn't take long for them to get nasty due to the war situation....
lol m8 ... u make me laugh all the time ^^
just idiots waste time and money to perma dec other Corps.
Maybe u become a better feeling in wardeccing other corps ... but u should take corps which are worth it ^^
There is no sense to declare war on Highsec industrial Corps which hold 80% newcomer pilots.
And u know we can just stay in NPC corp and laugh about u all the time and just use a corp holder to still have access to our corp hangars.
You should search for Other PvP Corps to declare war against.
u wasn't here in the last 4-5 days when the war was running ... and u will not be here when the nxt one starts ....
so where is the point in perma dec ?
u should learn more about EvE.
U cannot annoy me or my corp members with ur noobish gameplay ^^
Ah more use of placeholders to avoid wars. I love how they lecture me that my gameplay sucks, yet these are the people looking to exploit the system, these are the smack talkers who insult for no reason, these are the people who should be able to do anything they want without anyone else getting in their business. She is still melting down in every email.
hrhr u talking lot of crap ^^
tell me what ships i fly ^^
but im sure u don't know cos u never seen me before.
I'm really sure somebody payed ur for wardec me all the time .... i just want to know the name ..... cos there is are 3 players out who stolen about 4bil of my equipment and cos they canot defend there asses
alone they contracted u to do the job.
its just a shame that u make contracts with corp thiefs ^^
and if u want just ME cos I fly expensive ships ... why do u wardec other pilots of my corp .... they just want to stay save cos they are just skilled in industrial cos they are new in eve.
Here are only Lacrima Sam and Me who are more skilled pilots.
And the Corp bio says nothing about PvP morron.
u should not think, u should know before u do any actions.
She even changed their corp bio and removed all mention of Pvp!
As usual the old "TRAPS only blobs" excuses come flying out of nowhere....
and btw ... i never pay morrons like u ^^ i bet i got 15mil SP more than u and lacrima got about 30mil sp more ....
And yes ... i would fight when it is fair ... but noobs like u are only able for MASS vs 1
thats why i just dodge ur wardecs
Keep this one in mind later in the story. She's saying she prefer's 1vs1 and likes a fair fight. They admit to changing the bio and even contradict themselves....
oh yeah a paladin and an abbadon are really expensive ships ^^
i see every day hundreds of nacy ravens in this systems too .... which are fitted with great faction stuff ... maybe they would fight.....
hmm but i think u dislike to wardec corps who are in mood to fight.
I Made PvP since 2005 untill 3months ago .... now i would like to be part of the chilling side of EvE while doing missions and trading or producing and mining.
Maybe u cannot understand this point, but when u play 3years as an Pirate with sec of -10 all the time ... u will understand this.
Yes i loved PvP and maybe i go for it again anytime ... but not at the moment, cos i want to build up my own small well working industrial Corp.
and btw, The Corp Bio sais before "We run all possible Careers in EvE"
PvP is no Career ... it is a feature, being a merc is a career or beeing a pirate ....
my corp just holds mission runner and miners.
So the corp bio did say "all possible careers in Eve". She even said being a merc or a pirate is a career. Mercs and pirates PvP. Following transitive properties then would mean that their corp likes to PvP. That is no stretch of the imagination. She emails me daily....
it just shows u that these names are all my chars ....
i don't fear u, u are just a 2006 noob ^^
u can do nothin solo
if u think something else. ... why u hide in Usi since u wardecced me the first time ?
u moron just try to get easy kills by wardeccing corps which got alot of noob pilots ... cos u are unable to get any worth targets ^^
i never respect smackers like u
Smackers like me? Mind you, I am not even replying to half of her emails. Any time I do reply it's to ask clarification because she is constantly making no sense and making contradicting statements.
So once they jump into XXTIGGERXX corp and their CEO emails me asking me to dec them. One time in German too I think.
so du willst mir den krieg erklÃ¤ren dan mach ma freue mich schon wÃ¼nsche euch viel glÃ¼ck ich warte in irjunen auf euch
come on war deck me quick pls
blub blub war deck me pls :P
Once again probably figuring we would shy away because they have "XX" at the start and end of their corp name and because they all have bounties and a negative sec status. So I oblige him and put in the war since everyone jumped into his corp. Of course the war goes live and he never undocks for a few days. At least not when I was on and I know he wasn't AFK because him and his corp were quite chatty in local while I watched them.
Finally we catch him heading out towards null sec. I am not sure what he was doing but he kept jumping in and out of 0.0 and then decided to head towards us. We caught him....
...and make quick work of him. He offers GF which was surprising and we offered it right back.
A few days later this hardened PvP'er decides to grind some ISK via his Hulk and goes mining with is corpmate in Irjunen local. That zone is so laggy and so full of pharmers we easily slip in and make him kiss his Hulk bye bye. He goes on to complain in local that he lagged and it's no fair. He claims he is going to petition and tries to get the entire system to petition the lag in hopes that CCP will deem it a server problem and reimburse his Hulk. It was laggy but there was no way he would've escaped even without lag.
We were like .4 AU away from the belt warp spot and he was not aligned, he was not moving, in fact, he was face first into an asteroid. There was 150+ people in local. Highly unlikely he was focused enough to get out, even without the lag. It was laggy though, enough to where I was stuck in warp and didn't get in on the kill.
At this point is where I really had to laugh. Why you ask? Because I talked to Aslovi who is a director in REPO and he informed me that XXTIGGERXX corp had asked to hire them to kill us! So TRAPS is so sucky and so shitty, that they were willing to hire one of the best merc corps in game just to kill us? REPO declined to dec us and that left his corp with very few choices. Amazingly enough, he opted for a choice I had not seen before. They all decided to run to German based low sec and become outlaws! ROFL!
Of course Keira had to jump corp one more time to avoid the war!
That was a first for us. We made high sec so dangerous, these guys figured low sec piracy was easier and safer. I already knew why it was safer. I had an alt out in Fensi area where they all hung out and almost every corp based out there was German and they all bunched up and gate camped together.
Remeber how Keira said she is all about fair fights? She invited me to come fight her saying she was all alone. Let's see who's on the gate!
Yep, all alone and waiting on a fair fight for sure. Let's see what she's up to nowadays.....
Devoter vs. Tormentor! Now that IS a fair fight fo shizzle!
Let's dig a bit deeper, shall we? Out of her last 22 ship kills, only 2 of them were 1vs1 kills. The one above and one with her Paladin vs a Breacher! How fucking sad is that? How hypocritical is that? The other 20 kills were all lopsided gate camp ganks.
Of my last 23 kills, 14 were solo kills. The rest were all small gangs with 2 or 3 people total. She still emails me after she runs to low sec to hide...
lol if u think so ^^
u are unable to handle Pirates ... thats why u allways hide in high sec ^^
u wanted to kill me, but u didn't know that i am a Pirate too .... so u should try to mess with Pirates before u declare war against one ....
and btw ... u aren't safe in High Sec ^^ we get u sooner or later .... and than it is time to run for u all the time.
i don't need to hide behind my friends ... but u need to do so.
u moron wardec small corps just to get easy kills but u should remember that u did wrong this time.
I can handle pirates, I can also handling fighting on my own. She obviously cannot. I looked at all of her solo kills. They're all ridiculous. Paladin vs. Vexor! Absolution vs. Aribtrator! I think of her last 200+ kills 5 or 6 were solo. None of them really close. The closest was Paladin vs. Myrm and Drake. Most of the kills are 5-24 man gate camps. No real skill, pure blobage. I love how she lectures me on the aspects of honor and solo PvPness. It's fucking laughable, don't you think? They also joined an alliance right after the war lapsed to help avoid getting war dec'd again...
I don't know if you remember my last story where we dec'd a corp called Amarr Secret Service. We had some fun with them, of course there's always that one in the crowd who is an asshat smacker. His name is Motaka. He sucks at PvP. He brought out a horrribly fit Kronos with T1 guns! Of course he smack talked quite a bit even though the rest of his corp was pretty cool about it all. I laughed because after the story was posted he dropped me an email, basically calling me a liar.
Hey,have you thought of going into fantasy writing, you'd be very good at it.
Implying that when I said he was a smack talker who failed to follow through on his threats and promises was a big fat lie. Lets see....
just read your comment on your killboard,now if you want to start talking about lame tatics,lets start with you using neutrals in logistic ships,oh and i think vult forgot to mention that i poped his bait
ship solo right under his nose..
No neutral ship was used in any encounter and he killed a shit bait ship? Wow! Let's not forget they had more than us in the encounter where we killed their Kronos and they all deagressed and ran. Same think happened when we engaged them and they lost a Dominix. So I would say their tactics weren't that great considering they lost when they had the numbers.
He was pissed about his Kronos loss and admits to it.....
Motaka > i dont normally talk in local but you guys got me riled up
Nexa Necis > i offered GF in my email
Motaka > tbh i only found it today
Motaka > well i know were hes coming from......me---missioning kronos :/
Nexa Necis > well we coulda made fun about that and the subsequent screw up in the temp
Motaka > what screw up
Motaka > 2 vollyed that dudes shileds
Nexa Necis > you warped 150km, decloaked the rapier, couldnt get to the gate in time to help the domi and rokh pilots
Wow he two-volleyed a Harpy's shield! AWESOME! The fact remains their Domi pilot died because the others all warped to 100k off the gate in Tash as we warped into Yanuel and popped the Domi and almost had the Rokh too but he deagressed and jumped. The other ships in Tash couldn't get to the gate to lend support. Poor tactics. It happens, I wasn't smacking them at all for it in local like they were when they popped us.
He did promise to dec us. It never came. I let the war lapse with them because he promised to dec us and I wanted to have 4 active wars.
Motaka > well maybe after weve finished are war of you :/
Nexa Necis > thats what i said once its all over
Motaka > no were going to war dec you
Nexa Necis > hehe well i renewed the war already
Motaka > and your industrial wing
Nexa Necis > if you dec us that means we can dec another corp which is nice
Nexa Necis > well we dont have an industry wing so not sure what that is but dec em
Motaka > well some ulucky sods going to get hit
Nexa Necis > haha
Nexa Necis > cool let me know when its active
Nexa Necis > i wanna see who you think our industry people are
Nexa Necis > well ill let the war lapse after the 2nd week if youre gonna dec us that way i can squeeze in another war and have 4 at once
Motaka > inice
Motaka > right i got to chip,nice talking to you
Motaka > and pass on my apolgise to vult
Nexa Necis > will do
Motaka > later
Nexa Necis > have fun and be safe
Needless to say, no war dec from him. No war dec on our "industrial" wing. Lies and broken promises. I mean look at thei Deimos fit....
T1 guns? Cmon now. If I got killed fit like that, people would be smack talking me for years. Instead what we get is him continuing to smack in local unprovoked....
Motaka > nice to see your still up to your lame ass tricks nexa
Nexa Necis > another sore loser! hehe
Nexa Necis > wheres that war dec you promised?
Motaka > got bored of owning you
Nexa Necis > uh huh
Motaka > and your player base being on @leave'
Nexa Necis > excuses excuses
Motaka > then the day after you drop the war they all log back on
Motaka > funny
Nexa Necis > yup so true
Yeah they got more kills on us, but it was mainly because we actually engage solo in an attempt to score a kill. They pretty much kept docked/cloaked for most of the war. We engaged them a few times and they ran. They had other decs outgoing so they probably were worried their other WT were nearby. I even tried to engage one just before the war ended and he redocked in a BS vs BS with 2 of his mates in local.
One night one of my guys was out flipping ore. He started pasting their smack talk into corp chat. It was a riot. He got local all riled up and said that he had a Rokh that wanted to fight his Hurricane, but the Rokh dropped a can and then warped out 70k from it and he knew he wouldn't be able to catch the Rokh before he could warp out. So he asked me to get a covops alt into place so he could warp on top of the Rokh and hammer it.
Before the engagement my guy also aggro'd a Ferox who ran from his Hurricane. His name was Spc Tang. Spc Tang had a friend named Sana Yamada in the Rokh who was baiting my guy with a can. So they both sit and smack and taunt in local.
Spc Tang > why dont u intertain this noob
Spc Tang > hes gonna bounce
Spc Tang > he is not goin 2 do it
Koshiir'ra > there you go
Spc Tang > he has no gull
Spc Tang > why dont u come to watch
Spc Tang > koshii is scared
Spc Tang > waitin for ever
RumDum > he took it
Spc Tang > ok
Spc Tang > good
Spc Tang > well i got no agro so ur safe from me
Koshiir'ra > here we go
Spc Tang > haha
Spc Tang > this is intersting
Now at this point the Rokh fires, he's got a pretty shit fit of course. Another new player who thinks a BS means a certain kill against any smaller ship fielded against it. So my alt is in place and Kosh proceeds to warp to the Rokh....
Spc Tang > oh we got a runner
Sana Yamada > HAH Coward ran
They are clueless!
Spc Tang > micrco warp
Spc Tang > he went behind u
Spc Tang > not so dumb it seems
Spc Tang > why am i not suprised
He is not surprised? He sounded surprised to me.
Spc Tang > yeah and vampire
Spc Tang > shoot i dont have a sheild transfer
Sana Yamada > OK you win Kosh
Koshiir'ra > my shields are at 60 %
ï»¿Spc Tang > ok koshi
Spc Tang > enough
Koshiir'ra > i armor tnak btw
Sana Yamada > STOP if you want 50000 ISK
Koshiir'ra > 50k?
A whopping 50,000 ISK ransom on a ship worth well over 100mil ISK? Crazy!
Spc Tang > ok kosh
Spc Tang > u win dude
Spc Tang > good fight
Sana Yamada > Stop 200 k
Now we're talking some SERIOUS cash here! 200k ISK! HOLY SHIT! WOOT!!!!! Considering 1 mod off his ship would fetch that, I can't imagine why anyone would think someone would stop firing for that much.
Spc Tang > dude enough huh
Koshiir'ra > a rokh is what 120 Mill?
Koshiir'ra > 100k doesn't seem =justice
Spc Tang > that was gay
Koshiir'ra > gf
RumDum > wow he never dropped bolow 50% shield
At this point the Rokh pops....
...and Spc Tang decides to steal our loot. The bastard!
Koshiir'ra > i wanted that loot spc
Koshiir'ra > i think i'll have to do somthing about it
Sana Yamada > what loot I bet you did not get much
Of course once you threaten them with war, they revert to the "We're n00bs you big bullies! Leave us alone! So what we smack talked you. So what we stole your stuff. So what we taunted you into fighting and lost. We're young. We should have immunity and no accountability for any of our actions. Ever!"
Koshiir'ra > Option  (your vote), Declare War Against LONESTAR MINING COMPANY
Koshiir'ra > We'll see you in 48 hours
Spc Tang > oh so powerful attacking a noob corp
Spc Tang > not worth ur time
Sana is mad too that he lost that Rokh. He decides to threaten us because he is in an uber powerful alliance and we all know how strong most alliances are. All alliances are willing to stop everything and band together to protect a corpmate they barely know because that corpmate was an idiot and engaged a bad guy he should have just ignored. I mean Kosh stole maybe 100k worth of ore.
Sana Yamada > Hope you enjoy the resultingf war with my guild to
Guild? WTF!? Apparently he forgot this isn't WoW or EQ. He starts to realize that we actually would dec his corp and tries to backpedal. We asked why he would use his alliance to threaten us if he really didn't want to fight....
Sana Yamada > I was mad in the momenbt I dont like being stolen from
So we put in a dec against Tang's corp and put an alt in Sana's alliance to get a full memberlist. Tang turns out to be fairly predictable. He keeps trying to lecture me on honor as if honor somehow negates all his actions and means that he should suffer no consequences....
The funniest thing was his bio!
Some security officer! He of course quits corp almost immediately once the dec goes through. No surprise there to be honest. We let his new corp know that war is coming. He joined a corp called Warriors of Armageddon. They're an FW corp out in Black Rise, so I figured with a name like that along with the fact they're into FW, that would mean some PvP for sure.
We happen to be at war with another corp based in the system next door to Warriors of Armageddon called Article 14 Section 31. I will talk about them next. So that made things convenient for us. So we head out there and find Tang and his corpmate in a Drake sparring each other. I warp in and lock down Tang and we pop him really fast. However the Drake manages to warp out.
Luckily he warped back in about 40k out and we managed to lock him down. He was PvE fit, no scrammer, with that retarded passive tank. My Phobos and Kosh's Hurricane weren't enough to break his tank. So we sat there shooting him will we called in more DPS. Our corpie shows up and we finally kill the beast!
131k damage done! Crazy tank on those frigging things I swear. Their CEO convos me a day later and wants to negotiate a surrender. He came up with one of the best ideas ever. He agreed to pay us the ISK we wanted, as well as have Tang apologize to us, and he would keep the war mutual for another week so they could practice their PvP skills against us. They didn't do too hot but I offered some tips on fittings and tactics and we parted ways amicably. Good sports right there for sure!
We even decd a large FW corp called The Green Machine because one of their members decided to smack talk and also because they decided to make comments that TRAPS was retarded. They subsequently cleaned up their KB so the comment was removed. I saw that and felt it was completely unwarranted, considering it was their retarded member who was constantly getting can flipped and killed.
Larger than us, PvP'ers, and based in low sec. Once again, goes to show you will not get a guaranteed fight when you dec like this. They mostly retreated to their end of low sec and hid behind the pirate flashy guys who camped the gates there for a living. Still, we tend to excel at guerrilla warfare and scored kills where we could.
One night I found one of them running a 2/10 plex in an Amarr Navy Slicer. So I got my Taranis, warped to the plex, warped into the first room, AB'd the 80k to the next gate, warped in to see him almost 100k away scooping overseer's loot. I AB'd and snag em. He must have been daydreaming or something.
That pilot was one of the flew who actually left their low sec system and did his own thing. Unfortunately for him, his thing happened to be mining AFK in a Armageddon.
He was a good sport about it though, gotta give him that much. The catalyst to this war, a pilot named Zaaeen, happened to cross my path in his Drake one night.
Logoffski! Shocking, isn't it!? I didn't think so either. After another week of us hunting them, it seems they grow tired of dodging us. I even warped alone into the low sec system and warped to 2 of them in the ice belt waiting down their Global Criminal Countdown and they ran and docked. It was getting boring for us, but we're extremely persistent, if nothing else. Then one day I log in to see an email from one of them trying to negotiate a surrender in German. Not sure why they thought I would understand German, but I get by with Babelfish like most people do.
Hallo muss ich diesen Krieg beenden, sein Erhalten drastisch und ja war es ich, der das Drama begann und ich weiÃŸ, dass du Kerle arent ernstes und wardec die Weise REPO tust. Sowieso werde ich erklÃ¤rt, seine
150 mit Million, zum es zu beenden, mir auf den Details in Verbindung treten.
I let them know OK, and sure enough, I find 150mil in the corp wallet the next day. Score another victory for the TRAPS crew! Now, onto Part II!

Nice job, but I admit I kind of feel for the guy in regards to "unhappy with my afkness".....
That is incredibly irksome, but no matter, good story telling as always.

This last screenshot shows that the player is offline. Disconnections are a major problem for many players and you took advantage of that? That's not even pirate it's just pathetic shooting someone who can't shoot back.
Ospie - #2.1 - 2008-10-21 00:51 -
He logged to avoid fighting, hence no kill. He's a coward =)
Enjoying reading you stuff Nexa.

My mistake, he was in jammed at that stage, having said that I'm not one to believe in coincidence.

That's great stuff, excellent writing - very enjoyable.
I especially enjoyed the Keira Sunshine part. Why? Well, I'm a newbie player (with less than 4 months under my belly, this nickname's my main), and I had just got my very first Drake and had my first encounted with PvP in the form of a gatecamp in 0.5 sec. I was bubbled and podded, and of course I was mad - left with previous Caracal and no implants I was a week back in the form of money. Well, Keira Sunshine had been one of the 6 people killing newbies there, and I can recall each of their names just because I've got them as my only minus standings so I'll have my revenge one day.
Now I'm reading some articles (like this on eve-pirate.com) to learn some basic things about PvP and before I really am able to do it myself I'm happy reading excellent articles as this

Just btw, this email at the end is bablefish-german or something.
Doesnt make much sense, even if you would speak german.
