Hello friends,

Goose here.

I am writing to let you all know that I am moving on to greener pastures. New Eden has been provided me with a lot of entertainment since I returned in May 2020 however itís time to win eve and move on.

My assets are on the T5ZI market at fire sale prices. I will jump my pod into 1DQ so I can be returned to my home station in high sec to begin my hibernation.

The truth, I was a sponsored goon back in 07/08. My first day in the game I was in a frigate fleet moving from Syndicate to Scalding Pass to join with our Russian friends. With no idea what was going on. The same day a guy named Nync came on comms and started shouting Russian at us. I left and rejoined the game several times over the years. Was in Delve when Hargoth dropped BOB sov, burned countless freighters and haulers in Jita, sat in my sabre on the gates leading to B-R for hours. My sponsor decided to go gently caress goons so I guess when I came back to rejoin in May I was tainted.

The war has been fun, however today i struggle to find the motivation to log in for the SP rewards let alone to join fleets. I donít see PAPI doing very well in the battle for 1DQ. Especially if you can all rage form into 1DQ when the assault happens. Even if they do take it, PanFam will go home along with all of the other hangers on. Then goons can feast on TEST all alone.

I hope that I made some of you laugh with my poo poo posting. If you didnít like it, then rest assured the mods will soon be here to permaban me.

Goonspeed
The Goose.

I support our goons on all fronts. Hell, I even volunteered for CyberNations at one point. In the end, it is not about winning or losing battles, or even wars. Its about making pixels disappear, and harvesting those sweet pubbie tears. Because pubbies are the scum of the earth and must be defeated.

Friend, the game can be played for free and with a minimal time investment. This is a good time to harvest pubbie tears and destroy the belongings of people who are too dumb to deserve them.

This is a valuable ship that used to belong to some dumb guy who bought into the propaganda that they own our space now and that it is safe for them to pretend we're not there.

There are many good reasons to join at the moment, a few of them are even EVE related. There's pvp straight off the undock, bads only 1 jump away and we have our very own DJ on Saturday nights: https://twitch.tv/mind1

It's a shame I've found EVE boring as sin the two times I've given it a shot, otherwise I'd be right there with you applying. Playing with goons is usually pretty fun, and we tend to piss off the worst kinds of nerds.

Somewhere along the past 18 years of EVE being around, goons managed to piss off every single person, organization, and alliance in the game.

In 2020 after being left to our own devices allowing years of unmolested hoarding of wealth and power, the entire rest of the game decided to band together because of our past transgressions.

We're now about a full 12 months later, and down to our last few goon-held systems.

They run out of reasons to play.

Also I asked over in the main Eve thread re: the status of all this and they said between when the invasion started and now they nerfed all the space-land being conquered so other than destroying goons they don't get anything out of it. I assume destroying goons was always the point, but I guess the goon homeland was incredibly valuable / prosperous before.

here's the archive of the sovereignty maps: https://www.verite.space/maps/influence/

In the past, the "Horn of Goondor" would've been blown and a massive recruitment drive would have been attempted. If that happened this time around, I didn't notice it. I tried to rejoin but couldn't. Oh well. The "pubbies" have finally defeated the "goonies" and the "iskies" and "toonies" will dwindle until somebody in Iceland unplugs the server.

the region wasn't particularly valuable as far as resources, but the geography was such that a large area could be protected by a central capital fleet. every star system in Delve is within a single jump of 1DQ, so we were able to park our fleet there and mine every star system in a huge region unopposed. just being able to mine safely is what made goons so productive.

CCP nerfed all of the minerals in conquerable space and a bunch of other things, so its not valuable to mine any more like it was
