The following was taken from Militia chat the other evening. Plex-purchased ISK does not a pilot make. I’ll leave all remaining judgement, snickering and face palming to you all.
[07:05:22] Shin’rohtak > Lost my Loki :P
[07:05:34] Rebellious Maximus > just now?
[07:05:43] Shin’rohtak > a little bit ago
[07:05:50] Rebellious Maximus > thats sad
[07:06:00] Rebellious Maximus > how did u fuck up?
[07:06:22] Shin’rohtak > http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13405962
[07:06:42] Shin’rohtak > I didn’t. Got overrun by a thorax and then 4 other warped in.
[07:06:45] Rebellious Maximus > really u lost it to that
[07:06:49] Rebellious Maximus > pfft
[07:07:06] Shin’rohtak > all my fleet were in rifters
[07:07:17] Burany > lol!
[07:07:31] Rebellious Maximus > u shoulda eaten the thorax then raped the thrash then the 2 frigs
[07:07:35] Burany > so its over already
[07:07:41] Rebellious Maximus > how are u fit pure gank
[07:07:42] Shin’rohtak > but meh. idk why you guys think its funny. That was my intention of that ship.
[07:08:04] Rebellious Maximus > to lose it?
[07:08:08] Burany > you could have fed starving children with that plex though
[07:08:31] Shin’rohtak > that wasn’t all that was there in the fight. Pretty sure he was being remote repped. Which wouldn’t show up in the killmail
[07:08:42] Kuan Yida > /emote slaps his head
[07:08:54] Shin’rohtak > and yes to lose it.
[07:09:21] Kuan Yida > /emote ponders what he could have done with such a nice ship
[07:09:32] Rebellious Maximus > im not laughing but map dont bring a 2 bil isk ship into a fight then your not positive u can win unless u got money out the ass
[07:09:59] Shin’rohtak > Building another already
[07:10:05] Kuan Yida > http://eve-kill.net/?a=pilot_detail&plt_id=489893 hmmmm
[07:10:20] Shin’rohtak > and?
[07:10:32] Shin’rohtak > yaay you found the stats page. congrats
[07:10:44] Kuan Yida > Give it to someone who can actually kill something
[07:10:51] Akh Marduk > /emote smiles
[07:10:58] Kuan Yida > I need to blog this chat
[07:10:58] Shin’rohtak > And where’s my fun in that?
[07:11:13] Shin’rohtak > Knock yourself out.
[07:11:14] Rebellious Maximus > if your basicly soloing go active shield tank fit with a crystal set and keep some blue pills on u u would ate the last gang that killed u
[07:11:18] Shin’rohtak > give me the link afterwards
[07:11:55] Victua > http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=11768673
[07:12:00] Victua > I think the ‘donate ship
[07:12:06] Victua > option would be your best bet
[07:12:25] Isalone > that’s a clear case of PEBKAC guys
[07:12:38] Shin’rohtak > pebkac?
[07:12:51] Isalone > [07:11:30] Isalone > problem exists between keyboard and chair
[07:12:57] Shin’rohtak > riiight
[07:13:34] Kuan Yida > You know, I’m not really a much for trolling. But… words fail me…
[07:13:34] Isalone > not meant as an insult
[07:13:36] Shin’rohtak > well sorrry for having a job and not playing the game on my fat ass for 20 hours a day.
[07:13:43] Isalone > no no
[07:13:47] Isalone > it’s not about that
[07:13:53] Isalone > most of us have jobs etc etc
[07:13:58] Axl Borlara > practice in cheap ships, learn from mistakes. That’s all anyone should do
[07:14:02] Rarhahz Morthor > I have a job. They pay me to use my brain. That same brain tells me you have no clue how to fly a wolf
[07:14:08] Rarhahz Morthor > sorry :)
[07:14:14] Isalone > ye, what rarh said
[07:14:21] Isalone > axl*
[07:14:56] Rebellious Maximus > now now boys we all on same side
[07:15:25] Axl Borlara > and rather than just saying ‘you don’t know what you are doing’, it’s more productive to offer suggestions on how to do better next time :)
[07:15:33] Burany > he recruited someone into his fledgling corp earlier today :)
[07:15:34] Shin’rohtak > Oh no this is rather entertaining.
[07:15:45] Shin’rohtak > he thinks he knows everything in the world ohh so well.
[07:15:49] Isalone > this is advice
[07:15:54] Isalone > no I don’t know everything
[07:16:04] Rebellious Maximus > yea if u fly a solo loki go active shield otherwise for solo just fly a t2 frig or cruiser
[07:16:10] Isalone > but this you should listen to: go practice in smaller/cheap shit
[07:16:13] Rebellious Maximus > vaga
[07:16:29] Kipzz Jiggawatt > Shin, that’s a logical fallacy, you’re taking what he’s saying and extending it to overzealous proportions to try and argue against him. That doesn’t work.
[07:16:34] Rebellious Maximus > flying a frig is way dif then a crusier tbh
[07:16:42] Isalone > vaga is crap IMO but that’s not the point
[07:16:51] cheese monkey > LOL vaga is not crap
[07:17:12] Dahnn Brahmvirr > Vaga is awesome
[07:17:14] Shin’rohtak > You guys make it seem like I give a shit for losing this ship. IT WAS THE IDEA. To get the experience and to learn from mistakes. To learn on my OWN instead of listening to other people say “do it this way” with no explanation.
[07:17:22] Isalone > notice the IMO guys
[07:17:38] Rebellious Maximus > its all situational in this game and the vags good at picking and choicing its situations making it far from crap
[07:18:01] Dahnn Brahmvirr > Oh god, if your idea is to loose loki’s to gain experience, Please re-evaluate your thinking.
[07:18:04] Kuan Yida > Buy a thousand Ruptures and lose those first
[07:18:10] Victua > Your right Shin, stupid should hurt, its how we learn…so we should make it hurt REALY bad by practicing in ships that cost billions
[07:18:16] Rebellious Maximus > or go to the test server
[07:18:30] Axl Borlara > well, if you can afford 1 bill + each time, then go for it. It does offer cheap loot for the amarr though
[07:18:36] Shin’rohtak > Or buy and sell plex for the isk and not have to worry. woot
[07:18:50] Rebellious Maximus > yea fly a cynabal or vagabond there very similar for alot less
[07:18:52] Isalone > it seems you don’t want advice
[07:19:00] Isalone > cyna is much better than the vaga
[07:19:06] Isalone > again, not the point
[07:19:16] Rebellious Maximus > more expensive last time i checked
[07:19:23] Dahnn Brahmvirr > Well. let him fund ccp. Reducing the price of plex for the rest of us ^_^
[07:19:29] Isalone > point was, if you have the isk, why not buy 20 cheaper ships and learn with those
[07:20:07] Burany > but he could just buy 20x more plex and get to use lokis all the time
[07:20:08] Isalone > because pretty much everyone in here did exactly that
