Lemmings report

I think a goon pet supercarrier (or titan) will miss its smartbomb. And the money I pay to Marmite is wasted, since they are nothing but highsec wardeccer, so can't harm CFC logistics at all. Or their production. Of course we have to improve, as we don't fight with e-honor, as this inner pet informed us:

But that's not the news! The big news is that Red versus Blue, the Goon pet, who "knows to PvP", after being beaten badly for weeks, finally ran away. I guess they fear us more than they fear their masters. We'll see how the Goons will fare without them.

The really happy thing is this:
Near linear growth. I feared a "huge surge and disappointment" curve, but Lemmings grow steadily with 8.1 members/day (240/month). Currently there is no reason to believe we stop growing.

Finances: I can spend 4B/week on the project, but nearly half of them go to Marmites to keep up their permawars. The Lemming part is good for the GSF and Greater Western wars plus 2 pet wars which will be rotated.

Funny as hell! I can't wait to see you reinforce more of those POCOs and cause the goons a little more grief. Still can't believe RvB is out. Looked to me like GS owned them. Go Lemmings!

I wonder how many pilots were involved in Burn Jita last time. I wonder if you scare goons enough to make them not Burn Jita again. It is usually run to keep line members active between wars right? It would be a publicity nightmare for them to announce a Burn Jita and fail.

on another train of thought perhaps you should announce a 'POCO Intervention' for publicity / branding reasons. If my assumptions are right this will be your next step in this war anyhow. I doubt it would be feasible but have you considered hitting POCOs in goon renter null?

The goons just announced a major deployment....

You do realize that our "running away" was just the ally system kicking us out of the war after the 2 week period is over, right?

This is good news for your effort. Previous the Lemmings had little capacity to actively purchase the destruction of POCOs with RvB right there defending them for the Goons. Also given how this is being built from the ground up it just doesn't make sense right now to directly engage an enemy. Now's the time for your alliance to make it count!

@Anon what is this major deployment? Do you have a link to the announcement or was it done in a private capacity?

It's almost like Gevlon wants RvB involved... all the shit talking is going to make us get back in...

No one ever said that the isk is wasted because you can't kill goon ships, it is wasted because even without the isk, the marmite always decced the goons. Your isk changed nothing in the equation.

If you want to prove how much your "isk" affected the war, get an average on how much the marmite were killing before you paid them, and after you did.

Please stop warping the arguments against you, it is unbecoming.

We're spending a week hellcamping 0-W 23/7. Just to twist the knife a little.

Check out Boat's livestream of the camp on http://www.twitch.tv/themittanidotcom when he's running it.

Professor Clio, Gevlon needs RvB involved. As long as RvB is involved he has an excuse for why Goon POCOs have not fallen. If RvB leaves, he will have to twist himself into pretzel to come up with some other convoluted reasoning to justify his failure to do anything about the Goon POCOs.

@Arrendis: Oh, I watched it and it had hilarious details. Post will be up soon.

@Professor Clio: the RvB war was auto-dropped 40 hours ago. You had plenty of time to return, but I guess you were beaten so hard that even Mynnna can't force you back.

I've always wondered why you didn't pay for RvB to wardec goon pocos.
