Mad Cuz Bad

CSM Angry Mustache made a fan art.

Meanwhile, carebears are concerned.

Nova worries about noob jump freighters.

Who will save the newbros?

Nova is delusional.

We met Nova last year, at the Battle of Torrinos.

This is the ‘antiganking main’ of Everess 88.

Everess knows the current year is actually 1985.

After sending me a billion isk, Everess became a former fan.

All antigankers are like totally incompetent.

What a crazy loon!

This is clinical madness.

Thanks for the free killmail!

Cheers!

Taking Out the Trash

Are new players exempt from PvP?

Rookies are, by definition, less than 30 days old.

Although it’s not clear what constitutes “rookie griefing”, it can only occur within a few specific locations.

What exactly is griefing? Nobody knows. I’ve spoken with several gamemasters, and they clearly do not agree with one another. They informed me that CCP has no official definition. Aside from three examples, there is no formal policy.

We are not allowed to scam new players (within a rookie system), or trick them into opening a yellow box, or disrupt the tutorial. However, what happens when a rookie begins mining? They are no longer in the tutorial, so are we allowed to PvP? Indeed, a gank is not a scam, nor a trick, nor is it a scenario in which we “fire freely”.

Is ganking griefing? I find it noteworthy that the rookie griefing policy does not mention ganking, at all.

Only forum trolls claim otherwise.

I’ve asked CCP, whether ganking new players is allowed. If the developers did not want to endanger nubs, then why send them to Hek (a notoriously dangerous system)? I believe the intent is to expose rookies to PvP, via the risk of ganking. I can’t say that CCP agrees, but I asked if they agree, and they certainly did not disagree.

Regardless, Landslide is not a new player.

He died in Eystur, which is neither Lustrevik nor Hek.

He still claimed rookie rights.

What a loser crybaby!

He reported all my accounts.

All of them.

He cried for a long time.

Landslide believes in the Hateless doctrine.

PvP, in a PvP game, is “greefing”.

Landslide decided to take a stand for justice.

He reported everyone.

Subsequently, Landslide followed me to Abudban.

He was on cougar patrol.

The other miners mocked his emotional distress.

The miners didn’t listen to Landslide.

Nobody cared.

Landslide begged Hon Risalo to flee.

However, Hon didn’t want to stop mining.

Indeed, Hon won -46.7 million isk!

Landslide was left crying into the void.

There was nobody left to run away.

Hateless Blues

Wrathful Hawk recently declared a war on Orcas.

A lot of people claim gankers want to drive miners out of the game. However, when Hateless ragequit his EvE Online streaming career, Hawk offered an olive branch.

Instead of driving Hateless from the game, Hawk is encouraging Hateless to stop pouting and start mining. Newbros rely on Hateless to teach them how to use a dozen accounts to make easy isk, so he needs to get off his pity pot and get back to the daily grind!

Will Hateless save the Orcas, or will Hawk be forced to drive the entire pod unto the shore of extinction?

Desperate for the return of Hateless, many Orcas have fled to his Discord, where they beg him to make peace.

The response they receive, within the Hateless discord, is identical to the response they receive within my Why Was I Ganked? channel. Hateless and his cohort exhibit the same attitude, telling miners to calm down and mocking “emotional distress”.

The Orcas blame Hateless, because his manufactured outrage has drawn attention to illegal Highsec mining.

In the Hateless discord, they laugh at dead Orcas.

#WhyDidHatelessGetMeGanked? is trending.

The miners know who to blame.

Hateless pretends to help the refugees.

It’s not going well.

Hateless denies all responsibility.

Hateless claims Hawk would gank Orcas anyway.

The miners know that’s not true.

Calm down miner = griefing.

You do you boo, take a chill pill = not griefing?

Hateless infuriates everyone with his condescending attitude.

What a jerk!

One thing is for certain…

Orcageddon is nigh.

Will Hateless save the Orcas?

Not likely!

Cheers!

More Hateless/TiS Drama

Everyone is talking about Hateful Hateless.

He’s mad about “stream snipe griefers”.

Several alliances are annoyed.

We all work hard to bring content to lonely miners.

It’s offensive to be called a “toxic griefer”.

Previously, I posted a screenshot from TiS.

Rahne objected to this.

Rahne Chocolate > I’m a moderator that got called out there, why didn’t you include the people we banned who told Hateless to kill himself or attacked his IRL? Seems pretty biased. Yikes
Rahne Chocolate > Dont publish a shit blog trashing me

She runs a “top” show, whereas I run a “shit” blog.

Rahne Chocolate > Top talk show of EVE thanks 😉
Rahne Chocolate > Start one of your own if you’re so salty about it

A lot of people think this shitty blog exists solely to promote my sick cult of narcissistic vanity. I honestly don’t know whether I should ignore Rahne’s complaint (and be guilty of ignoring it), or respond (and be guilty of mentioning Rahne). Yikes.

Ok, fine, let’s address the screenshot.

Rahne, I’m not trying to trash you, and I don’t know if you understand what was objectionable. Regardless, I’ve got no other way to explain, since I’m banned from your Discord. However, I suspect your co-anchor Nick Bison knows exactly what I’m talking about.

As you may know, this blog is called James315.space. It is an homage to the late great James 315, the most influential member of the Highsec mining community since Helicity Boson. After he died, I stole the alliance from George and John, much to the horror of Super Perforator. Obviously, when the dead ghost of James 315 says something on Twitch (it rarely happens), any response is likely to be screenshotted.

James is a conservative Texas law boomer, who sells propane and propane accessories. As a young intern, I enjoyed his engaging discussions by the vending machine, which inspired him to grief Highsec miners in order to feel better about consistently losing every argument.

Ultimately, James believed “snowflakes” are overly sensitive, and they are ruining EvE Online, because they cry when they are bumped. He fears that “woke” developers want to eliminate “griefing”, and this is the primary reason EvE’s player count has declined.

Is it biased to call James a boomer? Absolutely. I’m biased, and I know he’s a boomer. Old man can’t keep up with a zoomer like me!

Aiko’s original character appearance in spinoff blog GankerBumping.com

So I’ve explained why I would screenshot a reply to James 315, since we all love to see James get called out for being a boomer who never undocks. However, what about the context?

Let’s be real here. If you disagree with any TiS staff, including Matterall, Rahne, that weird guy, or especially grumpy LadyScarlet, you are gonna get banned. Everybody knows this.

I’ve tried to have polite conversations, and I’m always banned. Last year, I was banned because I disagreed with the claim that I encourage Highsec miners to commit suicide. More recently, I was banned for suggesting that TiS has unfair moderation.

With no possible way to engage in discourse with this “top” show, which repeatedly portrays me as a “griefer”, I have no choice but to write a “shitty” blog. I’m responding to what I can only describe as a consistent bias in favor of carebear PvE gameplay.

Talking in Stations has a board of directors, who dictate a message, and moderators who aggressively censor dissent. People are routinely banned, for making reasonable statements. Talking in Stations is the EvE equivalent of FOX news (or, as James would say, CNN).

What about the rest of Rahne’s complaint? What about the people who told Hateless to kill himself?

Rahne Chocolate > “baru_rugar: hey hateless have you ever thought of killing yourself?”
Rahne Chocolate > Literal quotes from folks in Twitch chat

I searched the chat logs, and I couldn’t find the comment. Regardless, I acknowledge that this is not acceptable. Hateless, I don’t want you to kill yourself. I just want you to stop mining.

During my investigation, I noticed that Baru Rugar was concerned about how Hateless defined griefing in nullsec. Indeed, Baru is not a member of my alliance (so don’t blame me for his alleged words). In fact, PLOT TWIST, he’s actually in a coalition with Hateless and Rahne!

This is what I’m talking about, when I say that Talking in Stations is judgmental, biased, and unreasonable. They banned me because they claim I tell people to commit suicide. However, when someone on their side of the fence actually does that (allegedly), their instinct is to blame me (yet again) instead of cleaning their own house.

Highsec gankers didn’t tell Hateless to kill himself, that was a member of his own coalition. This is yet another reason I believe Talking in Stations is just a TAPI/PAPI/NC. propaganda echo chamber.

DISCLOSURE: Talking in Stations is funded by Highsec Buyback.

Satanic Sargon

Sargon helped a miner.

However, Chatty Streams didn’t enjoy mining.

He wanted to PvP in real life.

Like most miners, Chatty is “not a miner”.

As a veteran, Chatty fights for human rights.

People play EvE in real life.

Therefore, Sargon attacked Chatty in real life.

The CIA is OCD about video game Satanism.

Sargon used evil powers to PvP in a video game in real life. Therefore, Chatty will punish Sargon’s irl family. Collective punishment is not a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

That’s an irl death threat (in game)!

Are we the baddies?

Hawk on TiS

Wrathful Hawk was on Talking in Stations.

Everybody was excited to meet him.

Miners immediately began crying.

One crybaby was particularly whiny.

KeyOrion doesn’t like when miners pay CCP.

He has all the intel.

Other miners had questions.

Some even supported ganking.

Everybody is concerned about bump harassment.

Ultimately, the miners were outraged.

A lot of miners don’t like Wrathful Hawk.

However, he is a professional.

What a guy!
