Progodlegend SOTA: EVE is Dying

Art By Redline XIII

Test military commander Progodlegend (PGL) told his line members July 5 that the well known “EVE is dying” meme is “more convincing” today than it has been in the past. He said that “most people blame CCP” for this state of affairs, and that players “are forced to use the tools given to us by the [game developer].” But, he added, “the EVE community is partially to blame for the game’s stagnation.”

PGL said that “if you’ve been paying attention over the past few weeks you’ve probably seen a version of Goons that you’ve never seen before.” He claimed that Goons have recently transformed into “an alliance that actually forms fleets all the time” and suggested that “this is nothing like the Goons that most of you are used to.” He said that Goons have “brainwashed an entire generation of players into being absolutely content with being the nullsec equivalent of a hisec mission runner.”

He went on to say that The Mittani and Goon leadership have “corrupted a once-great organization into this black hole of pathetic MER-standing and pseudo intellectual musings about empire building in what is supposed to be a fucking video game.”

PGL said that EVE “could be a much better video game than the one we’ve been playing for the past four years.” He said that the game would be closer “to the game I’ve always wanted to play” without Goons, and claimed that most EVE players agree with that view.

Progodlegend also said that Goons never take a fight and just “sit in Delve.” He said that Test and the other big coalitions have been forced to stay in their own space despite that.

Test commander Vily added that “the entire server is coming together to free itself.”

    Lol. TEST are and have always been the shallow end of the null sec pool. Permanent pets.
    TEST has never been anything but pets. They tried to be pets of HBC and CFC until they picked the side they thought was bigger. It didn’t work out so well for them.
    Then TEST became pets of Goonswarm, only even back in null sec by the kindness of others.
    Now they’ve flip flopped sides again. That is the sum total of what this war is about– TEST flipping masters. Certainly TEST did nothing of consequence for years that wasn’t backed by The Imperium. And they certainly aren’t rising up to break off and be independent or free. They are just now PanFam pets again.
    GSF didn’t sit in Delve just farming PvE….it was GSF that marched 1000 titans north for a grand war on the botting army of PanFam- only to have CCP come to the rescue of their Panfam buddies with a coincidentally timed Drifter Invasion.
    The spin is hilarious. As is TEST immediately becoming a meme in their own war. 1111 indeed..

    Eve, a good game? No, eve resembles a lawless war zone, where vicious warlords and ruthless manipulators win, and kind people get crushed. Now that TEST has put their foot firmly in the trap, I’ll say what I’ve been holding back: they’re too nice for this hellhole called eve. PGL talks about “a better video game”, TheMittani talks about hellwar. Goons have always understood the truth of eve game mechanics, and played eve for what it is, not what they want it to be. PGL says he doesn’t like stagnation, but the only way to break stagnation is to consistently krab harder than everyone else until you have a big enough stockpile to crush them. If you want to smash thousands of titans in a war, first you have to build thousands of titans. You can’t hate krabbing but also want big fleet battles. Anyway, he asked the Goons to stop krabbing and start fighting, and he’ll get exactly what he asked for, even if it destroys him.

    I’m just glad eve players have an outlet here for all their ganking and spying and scamming and hellwar-ing and everything else that would be considered evil and barbaric out in the real world.

    I don’t have a dog in the fight. But he’s not wrong about the state of Nullsec, the region of space that’s supposed to be the most dangerous is barely riskier to operate in than high sec.

    There is a great deal of entitlement from the current nullsec population. Most believe they’re entitled to high end krabbing at minimal/no risk. In days gone by players looked forward to kicking over another player’s sandcastle and securing finite resources but that seems such a long time ago now.

    Whoever wins this war, at least something other than resource grinding is happening in nullsec

      So, someone else is more entitled to nullsec than its current inhabitants? That’s essentially what the whining is about. We don’t like how successful they are so we want either CCP or the blocs to change it for us. Whiners all.

        That’s not what I said, at all.

          To be fair, you go to nullsec for content not possible in highsec.
          That includes high end krabbing.
          The benefit of null is that anyone not affiliated with you is an enemy and you can kill them without consequence while in highsec you can’t kill indiscriminately, besides he’s probably there to try and kill you anyways.
          Many nullsec entities have established some form of a home defense force, with the passing of time these have improved and as a result it becomes more safe in your home space.

    • They are entitled to such as they put in the effort to build the infrastructure to make their homes safe.

    So he’s pissed because goons infrastructure and logistics are way better then he expected
    And as for the filling of fleets, if the game really is as stagnant as he claims, wouldn’t it be normal for them all to jump in on content?

    Besides isn’t empire building a core feature of the game?

    All goon haters can just shut the fuck up with the crying and accept that goons are more organised than any other pathetic alliance in eve we don’t make trouble, trouble comes to us because you PUBBIES got nothing better to do, also Test Please DISBAND shouldn’t exist any more so be great full that goons haven’t eliminated your pathetic alliance and actually respected the nip till the end, that you idiots disrespected on, good luck living in npc space, if you survive.
