Default Scammers and trolls? Why I never.

The Goonswarm Federation is a collection of honourable internet spaceship pilots.

(This is the best thread)

It's what he gets for dealing with Goonswarm to begin with, imo.

That was a good laugh. Some of this stuff was just riotous.

apparently ISK Lord was given a short term ban from the forums. Goddamn that's so meta. I'm rather proud of my own contributions to the thread.

Edit: Apparently a few of his members are asking if he was really in on it ahaha god.

I"m not versed enough with EVE yet to even begin to comprehend what transpired. If I understood most of it, it sounded like a bunch of people gave their things to one guy who subsequently screwed them over, either intentionally or unintentionally.

Did they ever figure out if he did it on purpose? I didnt' read through the entire thing.

Basically he got scammed and took his alliance for the ride.

It's not unusual for powerful 0.0 alliances to rent out space to younger/smaller groups of people. Our guy claimed he had the position within our Alliance to do that (He didn't). That there was an entry fee of 6bil ISK. To make it even better he offered to courier all of the corps and it's members assets to our space so they would have it available (Moving assets from Highsec to 0.0 is VERY risky, so most people hire couriers who own jump freighters to do it). So one of our courier pilots picks up roughly 15-22bil worth of assets, pretty much most of what the corp owns.

So at this point, we have their money, we have their stuff. It could have ended there.

But we're not nice people.

Since they didn't have a station they could pod jump to they had to run the pipe to our space, so they all got in small frigates, and one of our guys lead them the "Safe Route" to where we are. Well the safe route just happened to involve about 5-6 of our battleships with smartbombs.

Long story short. They got scammed, their shit got stolen, and to top it off we kicked sand in their eyes and told em to fuck off back to highsec the best way possible. Murder.

Edit: It was all intentional. This little corp just single handedly paid our Sov bills for the month (Not that we needed help, but hey free money)

The best part is where he googled goons and scams and could come up with no reasons why this was a bad idea.

Goons are KNOWN for epic level scams, laughing in the face of convention, and being so abrasive that most English Speaking alliances hate our guts (Our best friends are French and Russians, and right now our enemies are the germans. We are re-enacting WW2 in Cloud Ring).

Wow that's hardcore.


I like it.


So, who's the asshole here? The guy who made the deal, dooming his alliance... was he stupid or did he get jacked?

Our guys were the assholes, but he was exceptionally naive to the point where he pretty much deserved to get taken for a ride. Really goons are encouraged to scam, the only thing we can't say to secure a scam is "I'm a diplomat" and our diplo's are the only people not allowed to scam.

Other than that I can claim to be CEO or a director of moons or whatever and no one gives a shit.

It just dawned on me that you're a Goonswarmer that's why you keep saying 'our'.
