How to Scam CCP

Orcas have a question…

When will Hateless release his next EvE video?

Hawk vowed to kill Orcas, until Hateless makes a video.

Why is an EvE Partner rewarded for doing nothing?

What is he paid for?

Is it griefing, when you are paid to play?

I’ve heard the allegations, and let me be clear. I would never encourage anyone to visit that discord. His content is boring, like watching a grown man play Starcraft PvE by himself.

Nor would I ever ask anyone to take screenshots. However, since people (not associated with me) are taking screenshots, I might as well discuss what is already in the public domain.

Discussion is not illegal.

The Orcas believe Hateless got them killed.

Some Orcas suspect Hateless is ganking them.

Many Orcas feel Hateless is mocking their distress.

They know he is at fault.

They know Hateless is condescending.

They know Hateless is dishonest.

Fortunately, Hateless has a solution.

This EvE Partner wants to break the rules.

Hateless encourages people to violate the Terms of Service.

So Lexii decided to scam CCP.

This is a 2008 character , with 5 accounts.

They literally brag about AFK mining.

They’ve been ganked, and they have ganked (repeatedly).

This person does not deserve reimbursement.

Today I suffered an irrecoverable loss due to ganker crews in high sec. I do not feel I can continue to enjoy this game at this point. If my ship and cargo were reimbursed, Ill consider staying, but I do not feel like having to grind…

Lexii exploited the reimbursement program.

Will CCP reimburse your loss?

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!

Manic Griefing

Manic Velocity is full of it.

On his propaganda stream, Manic Velocity tried to create an echo chamber, in which the only allowed opinion is that gankers “want” salt and are “going for” salt. The implication is that gankers are griefers, because they are trying to provoke an emotional reaction. Although ganking is acceptable, griefing is not!

Ganking is fine, nobody has a problem with ganking, but gankers are griefers! Every carebear knows ganking is allowed, but it goes too far when ganking affects another player…

I watched the video again, to ensure I heard correctly. Manic said, “[Hateless] was salty… he was really upset. The fact that he was having this reaction on camera… that’s what the gankers were going for. That’s the reaction they wanted.” Those griefers!

I objected, asking how Manic Velocity knows what we want. He has never spoken to us, but claims mystical insight into our motivations. He then denied that he ever claimed this!

When I observed that he said otherwise, he banned me. This led to a debate over whether “good fight” is a malicious form of griefing, followed by a discussion of blowjobs and golden showers.

Seriously…

Fortunately, Brisc Rubal knows that other show is “weird as hell”, and agreed to actually talk to gankers.

I reccomend you listen to Globby, Joe, Jason, and Zaenis. Great guys! Some people wonder why I wasn’t there, but Queen Elizabeth didn’t have time for interviews, and neither do I. I’m busy ganking miners, but I was pleased to hear that people think I’m the best ganker, the cutest ganker, and the most vicious ganker in the game. That’s right!

Unlike carebear talk shows, the Meta Show doesn’t ban people, even though they disagree with the speakers. This creates a community with open discussion and reasonable debate.

When you actually talk to gankers, it’s hard to argue that gankers are griefers. This is why carebear talk shows have to ban gankers, because if you talk to us, we say things like “Ganking is good for new players…” and “Highsec miners are toxic…” These arguments are compelling, and any rational person will support us.

Ganking makes EvE a better game.

Fleablock wondered about the rumors.

Did Aiko serve in the Beeitnam War?

Who do you think organized the Perimeter Front?

Other people wanted to discuss Orcas.

Hawk intends to kill Orcas, until Hateless stops whining.

Will Highsec miners ever stop crying?

This might take awhile!

Miners are already complaining to Hateless.

Brisc Rubal brought our community together.

Gankers are opposed to genuine harassment: racism, sexism, and death threats. However, ganking is not actual harassment. Unfortunately, some people think ganking is griefing, because emotional streamers voluntarily share their absurd reactions.

What is the final verdict?

If you are a streamer, you are not exempt from PvP. So if you don’t want to be ganked on stream, then don’t stream! You are the one streaming, you are the one broadcasting your reaction to the entire galaxy, and nobody actually wants to watch your boring video.

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.

Boring in Stations

Hateless went live, to discuss his theory of griefing, but I don’t recommend watching the show. Hateless had an opportunity to discuss griefing, but instead he droned on about his computer, his multibox setup, and bragged about how easy it is to avoid “griefers” whilst ratting in nullsec. As you can see, host Nick Bison fell asleep.

Hateless clarified that ganking and bumping are allowed gameplay mechanics, but gankers and bumpers are griefers.

In particular, he cited the precedent set by notorious roleplay griefers Zaenis Desef and Chance Ravinne.

As Hateless explained, bumping and ganking are totally ok, except when this inconveniences him.

The moderators could have engaged the debate, asking Hateless to define griefing, or discuss specific examples. They could have asked Hateless what he expects CCP to do, or how we can discern the subtle difference between “griefing” and “adverse gameplay”. They could have asked Hateless how anyone is “stream sniping” him, when he literally sits in the same system for months, doing the same repetitive tasks in the same exact location. Instead, they simply banned everyone who asked these questions, and allowed Hateless to talk to himself.

Hateless only cited one specific example of griefing.

He called my channel “horrendous”.

Supposedly, gankers trigger this toxicity.

Biased moderators banned all disagreement.

Hateless said he doesn’t want anyone to attack me, or go after me. However, I am his singular example of griefing, and griefers (ie: me) should be permanently banned from the game.

As evidence, he cited my blogpost about SSno1.

It is true, SSno1 quit the game.

However, he wasn’t “griefed” out.

In fact, I urged him to stay.

What Hateless doesn’t understand, is that my “victims” love Queen Aiko. They enjoy PvP. They enjoy losing the game. A lot of them enjoy it so much, that they swipe their credit cards and come back for more. I’m playing the game as intended, and that’s not griefing.

Hateless had some interesting ideas. For example, maybe CCP could make players in NPC corporations invulnerable to PvP?

Hateless, I know you are reading this.

You are a miner.

You aren’t concerned about griefing.

You just want easy risk-free money.

Maybe you should try a less challenging game?

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!
