Recently, Antilor Ornulf lost a Covetor.
Antilor is not a loser. In time honoured EVE tradition, he becomes a ‘winner’ by the mere fact that he gave up and quit at the first hint of difficulty.
Antilor wrote CCP to thank those who helped him achieve ‘victory’.
In my experience, the majority of ships are fitted in such a way, that the cost of ganking is higher than the value of any loot. Ganking can be profitable, but it’s not profitable to gank indiscriminately. Nevertheless, other than making it financially unsustainable, requiring most ganks to involve multiple people, and providing an insurance program to subsidize miners, CCP has done nothing to disincentive ganking.
Antilor warned CCP that some people use multiple accounts, a shocking claim.
If only CCP would think of the miners, and pod empty ganker capsules.
Antilor wanted to give credit where it is due. In particular, he really likes the sense of satisfaction from selling a killright, and knowing that gankers live in fear. However, he wondered if more should be done. Perhaps CCP should consider adding some sort of ‘faction police’ to the game, so that gankers can’t just loiter in space? Alas, he lamented, CCP just wants people to PvP in a PvP game.
Some people just want to experience the empire building aspect of EVE, without any kind of meaningful PvP. You know, like Farmville.
Antilor concluded by doxxing himself to the very gankers he despised.
Ash Styles provided Tim some helpful tips on how to properly quit EVE.
Antilor was outraged, demanding an Obama style apology tour. However, Ash doubled down on righteousness, and told Antilor exactly what’s up.
I am waiting for Antilor to send me his stuff.
