Fail of the Silent

I know I dreamt you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom, but I don't have much time
Fate has been served and tears must be cried
So let's do some living after we die
The Rolling Stones - Wild Horses

I believe I may become a permanent fixture in Vale of the Silent for a while after today's events. Noir'd already been staging near there for incursions into Majesta space since they dropped eighteen capital ships on our POS.

Some stuff hasn't gone well for them since then.

Apparently they failed to account for Danny X(which happens sometimes). Seems he jumped into a system with a Rorqual in a belt along with a few hulks. Being Danny X, he realizes this just means some shit is about to die, despite only having a Taranis.

He then proceeds to warp into the belt and tackle the Rorqual. The Hulks ran away and left their friend alone. The Rorqual logs out aggressed. That means Danny X has 15 minutes to kill him. Reasoning that might be unlikely, he calls up a Triumvirate gang.

In a couple of minutes they arrive. The Rorqual then dies. The kind of shit Danny accomplishes just boggles my mind.

He never would've been there if they hadn't provoked us by taking down the POS. Payback is a bitch.

A few days later we got a logoffski Carrier to half structure with a gang of two bombers and two Rapiers. Honestly, I can't make this crap up.

I'm 21 jumps out when it's called and I arrive literally as his fifteen minutes is up. I'm annoyed we barely missed it, but it was a BAD call on the Carrier's part to log out. How about you stay on, keep the reps going, and clean the four man gang off you? All I'm thinking at that point is that Majesta Empire can't possibly do anything stupidier.

But then we come to the Fail of the Silent. By all accounts, Majesta Empire forgot to pay their alliance bill. In 2-3 days, autopayment will go into the game. In 2-3 days, those with Sov already will be converted over to the new system with minimal fuss. It is now of course that they forget to pay the bill, and the Alliance closes.

I swear to god, I can't make this shit up.


  1. Here I thought playing EVE would put me in with a higher standard of people than I encounter in my day-to-day life...
    Then I hear stories like these!

    Damn... Do people not understand EVE is a cerebral game?.... Well, I guess those of us who know what 'cerebral' means understand

    Thanks for, yet another, good read!

  2. True, hard to make this stuff up.

    I just heard from a few corpmates that they found a carrier ratting in a belt last night, was accompanied with a hulk.
