Battle report of Iyen-Oursta and the rise of the Lemmings

Update! The official recruitment post is up! And I can't mess up this project because I'm not running it. The Marmite Collective directors do it, I just pay the bills.

So the POCO I reinforced came out tonight, 1:30 for my local time. My original plan was to simply leave my pilots in local and go to sleep to let Goons troll the AFK computer, but I admit, I couldn't resist peaking, so I alarm clocked to see how local looks like and maybe kill some Goons.

Well, I guess you don't blame me for not undocking into this:

At the bottom you can see the complete chatlog, I here just pick the best gem:
You are wrong little bee. I reinforced the POCO because I wanted to be space-important. The directors showing up on the reinforces and you, 25 repping it made it reality. You proved that Goons indeed give small-scale fights in highsec at their POCOs, making my crazy, Hail-Mary, last-desperate-idea-before-quiting idea into reality. These screenshots and the 7 pages of Goons trolling, asking, arguing me to stop will lure awful lot of highsec PvP-ers into the alliance. You are the big, white whale of EVE Online, the one that controls half of nullsec and threatens the other half, and a single player can challenge you, drag you to a highsec with strange and unforgiving aggression mechanics, to be preys of lurking gate- and undock camps, small gangs and such niceties that highsec PvP groups have perfected. Now I add a legion of PvP-wannabees, white knights and 1 months old alts of your null enemies into the mixture.

Lucas Kell, a busy commenter use to troll me that I should beat out Goons from regions instead of posting. Well, let's start with Lonetrek, Forge, and Citadel.

As you can see, The Marmite Collective, the largest highsec ganker and wardeccer organization, with 7-800B/month kills is organizing the Lemmings that will end the Goon menace in highsec! I'm sure there will be a few days to iron everything out, but very soon you can join in the massacre of Goons. Foreverwar on, until Goons will have no options but to accept my terms!

Update: damnit. I must let the war lapse on the corp Grr Goonswarm as it can't join an alliance while being an aggressor in a highsec war. But as Lemmings have already declared the war, I can be back as soon as various alliance cooldowns are completed!

can you post logs as attachments or over on pastebin or something? makes reading them easier.

Also I am loving the fact that you think you are trolling the goons when you are playing right into their hands. You've formed up a motley group of highsec wardeccers and declared forever war on a group that WANTS forever wars. They will say nasty nasty things about you to enrage you and try to keep you interested. But really you are already losing this. Hilarious though. You may finally have done something you will be remembered in eve for (even if that thing is complete and utter stupidity).

Anonymous said...

Brilliant! Reinforce more, they can't bring rep fleets like this everyday! Evict goons from high sec!

daniel said...

i hope, and this time beg, you won't cancel this project after a month.

but you also should be aware of that this won't be an uber-succes within the next month, but need time to grow.

please have this running for a minimum of a year - hell, if you grow tired of throwing isk into it, raise a donation campaign, or let anyone else raise one.

Gevlon said...

@Daniel: I CAN'T get bored of it. I can get bored of shooting POCOs, but to keep the wardec and recuriting/managing demands me zero effort, just sending ISK to Tora Busido (Executor of Marmite who offered to manage. In return I pay for Marmite's own wardec and management fee)

Lucas Kell said...

"Lucas Kell, a busy commenter use to troll me that I should beat out Goons from regions instead of posting. Well, let's start with Lonetrek, Forge, and Citadel."
Not quite sure I ever stated that as such, but yeah, if you want to beat a group, generally you need to him them where it hurts, that's common sense. What you are doing is reinforcing a couple of POCOs, hiding, then declaring victory. You are in fact performing worse that Harry Forever did, which it actually pains me to say.

"As you can see, The Marmite Collective, the largest highsec ganker and wardeccer organization, with 7-800B/month kills is organizing the Lemmings that will end the Goon menace in highsec!"
OH NO! Not the Marmite Collective! They never used to declare war on the CFC or anything! Now you are here they will overpower us all!

Feel free to fast forward to the last step, but the ones leading up to it are entertaining.

daniel said...

@ Lucas:
sry to say, but i think, this time it's you who doesn't understand the implications.

the hs-poco-wardec ist not about destroying goons.
one is safe to say that the few b they make with them "won't make the cake fat" (rough translation of a german saying).

it's about opportunity cost.
one poco in reinforced isn't doing much other than providing goons with a fun engagement while in tidi on your main account.
two are doubling the fun, even three ...

but this isn't something where it goes: the mere the better.

20 pocos in reinforced in different systems, even as organized as you are, you won't be able to defend them all - every day, on and on.
yes, the first month will be funny for you.
the second, maybe ...
one day even goon members will realise, that it's annoying having to show up for repping sessions every day, being denied the fight...
one day they too will realise that it might be more fun to just rat, or run missions, or tweak spreadsheets, watch a movie, troll the forums, or just have a beer and a wank.

let's assume a fight might happen from time to time, as even a penny counts, how long will it be cost effective to risk a fleet every time, just to safe a minor poco in the backyard of the forge?

remember that goons strength (doing stupid ingame work, cause it's thought of as being fun) is also their main weakness - once it's not considered fun anymore it gets boring, annoying, stupid, senseless, members will stop to log in.

do goons really want to keep up the effort for less than 10b?
i think it was 10b that pocos are netting rvb per month.

on a sidenote, you ain't no goon, why ya defending them? is that poco money even benefiting cfc members?

Gevlon said...

@Lucas: I did not claim victory. After all the POCO was saved. The point of reinforcing the POCO is getting fights. But currently I'm the only one in the corp, the alliance is forming, and I don't want any fights. It's just testing phase. I'm celebrating that Goons indeed do as I expected and give small-gang fights. Of course we have to win these fights and in this I'm powerless. I can reinforce POCOs and pay wardecs. The rest is on Marmite and the people who join the alliance.

You didn't expect me to beat GSF all by myself, right?

Gevlon said...

Also, you keep claiming that Goons will have fun fighting with highsec noobs. I believe you. However if Goons are having fun in highsec, who is flying the bombless bombers in nullsec?

Lucas Kell said...

"it's about opportunity cost."
There's that old nugget again. You guys seem to thing that opportunity cost is some flat isk/hour/character, so any character involved in something has some automatic associated cost. That's just simply not the case. There's no opportunity lost to sit an alt repping a poco while your main is off doing something else.

Honestly, do you think that the goons don't want to have high sec players having little rage fits about them trying to bring them down? And honestly, who do you think is going to get border first? The goons running a repping alt while they are fighting in null, or you guys endlessly shooting structures, then running away when baddies show up?

All that's happening here is Marmite have tricked Gevlon into paying for the war dec that they had anyway. That's pretty much the extent of it.

"do goons really want to keep up the effort for less than 10b?"
No, probably not. If it becomes effort, they probably won't bother, they'll let RvB step in and take the POCOs, and they'll lose practically nothing. That's pretty much the point though. Gevlon is attacking something that was taken specifically to make high sec players rage, and somehow feels that is going to have some profound impact.

"on a sidenote, you ain't no goon, why ya defending them? is that poco money even benefiting cfc members?"
I don't know if it does and don't really care to be honest. And it's not about defending goons. Gevlon has this thing about expressing his superiority over the community when all he really has is that precise opposite. I'm not really a fan of people like that.

"Also, you keep claiming that Goons will have fun fighting with highsec noobs. I believe you. However if Goons are having fun in highsec, who is flying the bombless bombers in nullsec?"
Shockingly, it takes such a small amount of effort to "defend" in high sec that they can in fact do both. At the end of the day, goons took the POCOs in high sec so the high sec playerbase would rage out. You have successfully raged out, and are paying billions to do so. Well done.

Anonymous said...

What are you going to do if your alliance still doesn't have any members two weeks from now?

So far you have broken off every single of your projects after a few days because of a lack of public interest. Why will this one be different?

Gevlon said...

@Anonymous: it's NOT my project. It's Marmite's project. I'm just funding it. I can't mess it up with my anti-sociality as I'm just a grunt inside.

@Lucas: there is opportunity cost of everything. Your alt could be mining veldspar. Unless a Goon is logging in explicitly to fight in highsec and would be logged out otherwise, fighting in highsec will make something else not happen. Maybe it's ISK making, maybe it's null roaming that would create content to other Goons, maybe it's a bombless bomber fleet.

"who do you think is going to get border first? The goons running a repping alt while they are fighting in null, or you guys endlessly shooting structures, then running away when baddies show up?"

I'm running away. The others don't really care about POCOs, they care about fights. They want to fight Goons. Also, remember Marmite! The reason why I could recruit them is that they are in war with Goons anyway.
POCO1: 5 noobs in frigs, Goons happy.
POCO2: 5 noobs in T1 cruisers, Goons happy.
POCO3: 5 noobs in T1 cruisers, why do they scramble 5 goons each and makes no damage? OMG 20 marmites entered local, burn out of range, warp off, FUCK, FUCK... get your pods out guys.

"they'll let RvB step in and take the POCOs, and they'll lose practically nothing" You among all people should know that loss isn't just ISK. Losing a few POCOs won't put a dent into GSF finances, true. "Gevlon beaten us out of highsec" will do put a dent into GSF morale. Of course you and I know that it's not true. But you and I also know that a 100B titan loss is equal to 100B opportunity cost loss, still, alliances rather lose opportunity costs than titans. Morale matters.

"it's about opportunity cost."
There's that old nugget again. You guys seem to thing that opportunity cost is some flat isk/hour/character,"

sry mate, plz read my comment again, the part about opportunity.
i am well aware that on char/player level it is not about isk.

if i may quote myself:
"one day they too will realise that it might be more fun to just rat, or run missions, or tweak spreadsheets, watch a movie, troll the forums, or just have a beer and a wank."

while the frist three (ratting, missioning, spreadsheeting) are highly isk related, i just gave them as an example of things to do with your char, other than poco repping.
i was (and i admit that i didn't make myself clear enough) talking about opportunity cost in terms of time well spent (drinking beer and wanking really doesn't help your isk making much).

i am well aware, that goons themself are not paid in isk for their time, but with a fun reason to login.

yep, rvb will take over, yep, gevlon asked to get isk-farmed again, if he is smart, this time he won't be talking too much into marmites own matters, and hopefully won't be doing the mistake of taking their interna to the public again.

gevlon's got a reason to grind isk, marmite get's paid for doing a certain job, goons have fun engagements with structures, highsec gets a bit more intersting, rvb gains more pocos - everybody happy.

the one thing i see as a rising problem will be in about two to four weeks, when goon empire hasn't fallen because of some fights about structures, and gevlon announces his retreat from the project, blaims everyone else etc pp.

but well ... it's not like noone sees that coming.

a shame rvb is teaming with goons, not that i am anti goon, it just is taking so much fun out of highsec.

i really am not anti goon, i like what they are doing for the game.

if at all, i am anti sov.null.guys, as i do not really like what they are doing for the game.

on a sidenote, gevlons three demands on the forum, kudos, i really had been laughing hard - he has a good portion of humor, and i dig that.

Anonymous said...

The narrative that keeps goons logging on and being mindless drones for the good of an idea is that it pisses off sperglords like yourself. The fact that you're once again ploughing your own isk into going "grrr goons" is funny to them, you're rewarding their game identity with attention and validation. Goons don't want to be known as the group that is willing to waste more hours grinding in bombless bombers than any other, that's a shitty identity and a shitty narrative. The group that makes people like yourself mad by its very existence is much more fun, even if they have to grind shit in bombless bombers to be that.

Behnid Arcani said...

I doubt the CFC higher ups are laughing off this particular problem. New Eden is filled with opportunistic sharks, and honey scented blood in the water is rather tempting.

But, I'll wait and see. If you keep this up Gevlon, Goonswarm will have to counter you eventually, or simply acknowledge the loss of POCOs to, well, you.

It will be a matter of persistence. Escalation, maybe not, but keeping it up until they lose interest (and a POCO) would certainly highlight the current weakness of the CFC.

So, if I could give you some advice: Find ways of making this sustainable. It'll come down to whoever has the greater patience.

"rvb gains more pocos"

if goons transfer pocos to rvb for safe keeping while still earning the income Gevlon only wins a morale victory.

if only rvb recognised the fact that a partnership with goons is becoming one sided and withdraws their NAP. this would be a greater victory.

how long are the line members of rvb willing to support the goons?

People have been permadeccing goons since Privateers, and probably before.

Marmite having a permadec on them is not new either.

What makes you think your campaign is different?

Genuine question, as you seem to have something novel which can threaten goons, or think you do, which to me just looks like Eve has done for the last 6 years or so.

Maxim Preobrazhenskiy said...

There is thing here that Gevlon is assuming to be true, which may or may not be true.

If that thing is true, then Gevlon has succeeded doing damage to CFC. If it is not true, then Gevlon has at best achieved nothing of substance, and at worst validated Goon playstyle and wasted his own cash on funding other people's war.


A POCO can be repaired with an afk alt. Gevlon asserts that an afk alt is always an opportunity cost that is forced to just sit there and earn nothing.

Gevlon assumes that Goon alt infrastructure is perfectly optimised and that every alt of everyone is always doing something useful. Thus every alt sent to repair job is alt not doing something useful.

But maybe, just maybe, the goon structure is not perfectly optimized and it always has a small supply of alts that just sit there doing nothing anyway. If this is the case then, the only thing this POCO bash thing did is validating the existence of this unoptimization by suddenly turning it into a sort of alt-body buffer against aggression such as this.

Something tells me that the latter is actually the case. If this is the case, then one needs to consider the size of this alt buffer. If it is exhausted by the POCO thing, then maybe there is something else in goon infrastructure that relied on this buffer that is now being made vulnerable.

If it is not exhausted by the POCO thing, then one has to wonder how close it is to exhaustion.

Gevlon said...

@Maxim: I'm assuming something very different:

The average Goon is incompetent. The limiting factor of GSF operations is not Goon man hours but FC and other expert manhours. Hence the bombless bomber fleet: can be lead by any junior FC and even total fleet destruction is minor loss. All the Goon doctrines are built around a few highly competent people followed by F1 pushing drones.

The POCO first has to be identified, the timer has to be recorded, a fleet has to be announced and lead. These are expert jobs. The Goons simply don't have enough experts to repeatedly deal with it. Remember that each time I hit a POCO, a Goon director shown up. How many unused director-hours do the Goon have?

daniel said...

@ anom:
"how long are the line members of rvb willing to support the goons?"

by it's very nature, rvb doesn't have "linemembers" in the common sense.

also i wasn't thinking of a transferal but simply, bomm, poco goes, rvb is the first to take the new place.

@ gevlon:
"I'm assuming something very different:
The average Goon is incompetent."

i am sure your assumptions are mislead.

Smith said...

"Remember that each time I hit a POCO, a Goon director shown up. How many unused director-hours do the Goon have?"

It's not very scientific to draw conclusions from such a low data-set. Give it a few weeks and you'll have some real numbers.

I must say though that the Goon talking points like this does nt matter holds little water. If it did not they would not be there. Them being there is hands away from the null part of space. Alts and all that, sure, but there still is a member logged in and I doubt the majority multi-box.

It will actually be interesting to see what happens. Both if you manage to get anything going and how brutal the goon will go after your POCO's as payback.

Anonymous said...

The opportunity cost fallacy rises again.

In order for this to matter you have to assumes goons care about it. They clearly don't. Opportunity to earn isk is clearly not a goal. Watching you throw money at a war you cannot win aligns more closely with their goals.

You can spout about your victories due to fictitious opportunity costs all you like. The fact remains you are fighting a much much richer opponent and providing them piles and piles of forum porn. By any objective measure you are losing this war. Even if marmite win (which they can't..), you personally are suffering losses.

Loss in reputation
Loss of isk
Failure to cause a lasting impact on your sworn enemy
and so on.

The goons never tire. You will get bored of this project - you will quit it like you have every other project that you have failed to see through. But goons wont forget. You've painted a huge target on your back which will follow you around for the rest of your eve career.

Except we have a whole 200man crew of the CFC that does more damage in highsec than Marmite, and actually lives in highsec

"The POCO first has to be identified, the timer has to be recorded, a fleet has to be announced and lead."

Nah man, I just set the timer in my phone for 45minutes beforehand, and pinged for it 30 minutes beforehand. Since I have in-alliance dudes that just live in highsec for tomfoolery, I got into my ships and handed out a bunch. Some dudes spent 15minutes zipping down from deklein in ceptors and back.

(6:13:38 PM) directorbot: Iiiiiiit's Poco Time. Highsec "pubbie carebear shitlord" Gevlon Goblin reffed a poco inbetween blog tantrums and eve-o posts. I'm going to need a handful of dudes to see if we can recreate some magic and 1.) get it repped 2.) humiliate anyone who shows up. Timer is in 27minutes so you have plenty of time to Get to XXXXXX.
FC: XXXXX || Fleet: POCO SAVE || Where: XXXX|| When: We leave in 20 minutes || What: (ships) || Mumble: OP18 || Reimbursable: Stratop (lol) (preference is for GSF, but if you are an ally and really feel like being a "commanded pet", feel free to hang out

If you come along on this adventure, I can almost guarantee he'll spend 2 hours writing a wall of text about why we're bad and how he's the greatest.

Marmite like targets to shoot at in highsec - you've just provided them what they would have wanted anyway - for free.

Goons like stuff to do in highsec between other activities - you are providing them what they would have wanted anyway - for free.

@Powers: remember last year ice interdiction? The one that caused less damage to miners than I could alone?

The reason was that TEST failcascaded and GSF had to grind down Delve in bombless bombers.

We know for a fact that GSF can't successfully operate in BOTH highsec and nullsec. I believe you that you can crush my little movement. But by the time you'd finish, your Russian buddies would be in lowsec and Razor and Gents would be a "roaming PvP alliance".
