The following post was placed by Against All Authorities CEO Lahari on the CEO / Director section of AAA’s forums:

Against……… Ourselves!
Hello -A-,

The most difficult part of being the current -A- leader for me has been having to reconcile the differences between the type of leader I want to be with the kind of leader I have to be. What does this mean? Simple, I didn’t want to have to yell, scream, threaten people. I wanted to encourage people, improve communication, treat people like adults that give a shit about their corps, alliance, hobby. And what did I learn form this? Well, it seems that a majority of pilots playing Eve are lazy, self serving, and rather quite useless.

The weight of an entire alliance that is nearly 2400 members bloated is carried by a very small few. A couple of dozen in command and FCs, and a very few hundred in fighting pilots. The rest who the fuck knows what they are doing. I am not even talking about the 1000 or so that don’t bother to log in for one reason or another. I am talking about the 143 guys in alliance yesterday during the fight for RIT (One of OUR SYSTEMS) and only about 40 were present. It seems on -A-s best days we can maybe muster a 50 man fleet.

It seems like there are a lot of people either getting fat on isk while others do all the work, or simply log in to do nothing at all. There is no place for this in -A-. While we take a pounding from stupid mistakes, ignorant renters who drop sov in catch, our own inability TO DEFEND OUR OWN FUCKING SPACE. Is mind blowing. Sure, we got in a war that we really didn’t need. We have to blue CFC which some of us can’t stand and others could care less. However, this is about defending our own space. RIT, OUR SPACE, systems falling in Fey, OUR SPACE. Sov dropping in catch due to stupid renters, OUR SPACE.

Fleets are called, pings are sent, not one fuck was given. FCs continue talking about their latest fleet concept in chat. Alliance has the same trolls talking that never fleet. And the rest? Silence. Not a peep. Not a word not a fuck given. In spite of all of the effort made to improve communication. New command structure, TS made stable. Forum posts, Jabber pings, Our participation hasn’t gotten better, it is worse.

Excuses seem to be the Fleet Doctrine of today’s -A-. It’s the holidays, I have to work in the morning, I have a sick kid, I have to rat to plex, Sure, that is probably true for a few people. I doubt it applies to the rest.

I for one have had enough of it. Moving Forward I will be holding holding each corp accountable for it’s participation. Participation is a broad term, it’s more than just fleet participation. While having more people in fleet should be our #1 priority there are other ways pilots can help. Logistics, Pos’s, DO SOMETHING USEFUL.

I am going to be coming down hard on CEOs and Directors. If participation does not start to improve then I guess it will be time to remove the dead weight. This isn’t a path that I wanted to have to take, but it seems there is little choice. I will take into account the holidays, but by February, I expect to see results.

CTAs are mandatory. It’s not like they happen all day every day. Corps can still do fun roams and other activities. But when a CTA is called, for any reason you will get in fleet and participate. If we have to start forming our own fleets to stop DD or others from kicking less experienced pilots out, so be it.

A team will be named to search our hunting grounds for those that feel ratting and bearing is more important that participating in CTAs. If you are found ratting, we will come for you, we will kill you. This is not YOUR space to make isk in, this is the alliances space. And you do not get the privilege of isking up while others work to protect you. Once killed your corporate command will get an ear full of me.

This issue of 140 in alliance and 12-50 people in fleet needs to be solved. Either people start fleeting up, or people start finding another alliance to leech off of. There are a few very hard working pilots busting their asses to be in fleets, to help with logistics, to FC, setting up poses etc. WTF are you doing? It’s not just the holidays, this has been an ongoing issue for some time now.

Pilots will use jabber. Pilots will use alliance comms, Pilots will read forums, Pilots will read alliance mails and calendar. This is not peace time. We are at war. And every mistake made our enemy capitalizes on. We can not afford to be complacent. We can not afford to be lazy. If you don’t give a crap about this alliance, then you need to find another place to be. It’s that simple.

-Catch is to be monitored for enemy SBUs and enemy SBUs will be reported. We can start a forum thread listing them. It is a simple task that needs to be done daily.
-Pilots need to have carriers and dreads staged in F4R2 and have jabber ready in case you are needed.
-Pilots need to have ready siege ships, this means Phoons and Bombers, ready to ship up and hit enemy SBUs, TCUs and structures at a moments notice.
-Pilots looking to have action during non cta times should fleet up and roam our enemy space.
-If you want to sit afk in eve all day, do it in an enemy system cloaked. They do it to us, return the favor, make your logged in time useful.
-Kick your corp mates and get them active and into fleets. If you don’t care why should they.

The only systems we have lost have been systems that have either not had iHubs or a renter dropped sov on. To this point, no system has been forcefully taken from us in our space. This means something. We fight for what we keep.

No more excuses!

Every person that reads this post needs to hit thanks on it so I can see just how many of you actually took the time to do so.

Pretty sad that it has to come to this.

Hari Out

P.S. For those that say “It’s my time and you don’t pay for my subscription or plex”. You are correct. Feel free to remove yourself from this alliance and it’s space as we have no use for you here. This alliance and it’s space is maintained and defended by other people’s time using other people’s subscription time and plex. Which YOU are clearly not paying for.

      • Ncdot

        You’re reading Kugu right now. these “leaks” are straight copy/pasted from kugu. This terrible site never has any original content. They have no writers. Its copy/pasted blogs and copy/pasted Kugu. Thats it. I’m not a fan of mittens or his site but at least they have writers and editorials. Wheres the news Bob!

        • Mike

          There’s too much shit on Kugu for me to bother with it.

        • ex-Northerner

          I’m actually grateful that EN24 takes that bullet for me and deals with the incest-ridden, self-absorbed shitpile of high-ranking basement-dwellers that is the kugu-community, and digs through their endless, mind-numbing dribble of repetitive memes, unoriginal pop-culture references and contrived in-jokes that make these sad-fuck retards internet-relevant.

  • wow

    Kinda wish our forums had a weekly spin or some drama, just to keep me entertained at work. But all we do is win win win….

    • Chris

      Heh. Thats why I spend so much time posting comments. :P

  • fukier

    AAA are funny.

  • Red Orchestra

    War just started and they already whine about numbers. Guess this guy didn’t hear “-A- is shit” meme before.

  • Sold

    inb4 failcascade

  • mrcrazy_monkey

    It makes me feel awesome how nulli will form a 30 man ceptor fleet at any time for any FC and -A- can’t even form 30 dudes for a CTA.

    • how can i not love them

      our corp blops fleets get more participationthen all of -A- cta’s lmao can you say hed by XMAS….. just kidding why would we want to get rid of all these kills . -A- are making plenty of content for me. love you guys long time just try to die quietly and stop yelling about it

  • Amy

    SOOOOO much crying! sounds like TRIBE 2.0

  • acetech09

    Sounds like somebody’s finally taking some damn leadership. Too late to make a difference but it’ll be interesting to see if anything actually changes.

    • Chuck Snorris

      It is never to late.

  • BUSA grunt

    OMG, somebody plz “Karrtoon” these fucking pubbies. Keeping failed abortions alive from Tribe/Test/Squee is too painful to the old guard.

  • Red Teufel

    -a- isn’t even -a- anymore. just a reincarnation of failcascade alliance

  • Jose G. Garcia

    When I decided it was time to join a null sec. corp I was fortunate enough to be accepted into what in the very near future will be one of the best Alliances. They do roams and CTA’s almost everyday with good numbers. Too bad for me I lacked the skill points to fly their doctrine ships and to bring my skills up to par would’ve taken months. I was a virtual prisoner since I quit mining and ratting because I did not want to be a leach. I left on my own because I felt unproductive, useless to the Alliance and to my Isk making.

    I always thought that an Alliance should be divided not only into Corps. But squads within the Corps. Maybe six to thirteen man crews which would be easier to track the personnel instead of one person wondering what 2300 people are up to.

    • Chris

      Dictors and inties are good in any fleet.

      Instead of looking for an alliance that will fulfill your needs, look for a corp. Its far easier to get to know a corp than a bunch of randoms.

    • Dumbledore

      “…what in the very near future will be one of the best Alliances”?

      Based on alliances’ self-images it’s pretty crowded up there.

      • yoyoyoyoeastsidewestside

        RAZOR of course…..it seems that everyone in EVE is looking up to them.
        I hear they are currently killing thousands in their war vs Guristas.

        • Dumbledore

          That’s the rumor I heard too. Guristas have lost several high ranking officers already.

  • War anyone?

    Still happy with your decisions Vlade you arrogant shit. Have fun finding a home after your RMT shit alliance collapses.

    Btw, Russians are degenerate thieves. Why is anyone surprised by this

  • GFY

    “Well, it seems that a majority of pilots playing Eve are lazy, self serving, and rather quite useless.”

    Thats not just in Eve, thats society in general.

  • ca

    -A- should test the leader’s update and call a CTA, and measure the response.

    AAA only fleet I might add.

    • yoyoyoyoeastsidewestside

      should call a ratting CTA, they got 99% participation right there.

  • Simon pieman

    Its refreshing to read a alliance report of sorts with no bullshit and no spin, this guy seems a good one.

  • Andrew

    “thanks”

    • Dumbledore

      “thanks”

  • yoyoyoyoeastsidewestside

    it’s almost that time of the year again that -A- will go hide in STAIN stations again and come back out when the evil guys have gone.

  • Hells YA

    Applauding -A- leadership for putting foots in asses of the dead weight carebear jews who think they are hardcore because they simply live in 0.0 and rat all day. The same guys who have mountains of isk but whine if alliance doctrine requires them to have more than 1 or 2 pvp ships fitted because it costs isk…. GTFO.

    • http://www.eveonline.com/ hoodaticus

      Too bad their kind can’t be arsed to even read an alliance mail.

  • Frans Bovens

    I ll take some provi fleets too take your space, that will help putting them back in too shape, so see the sbu as oppertunity and nota thread lol. Convoy me in game too set the details dear triple a ceo.

  • Nick

    This is pretty much a sign to anybody who wanted to aggress on -A- to actually do so. This was a foot up the ass of all the carebears in their alliance, sure, but unless they get the problem taken care of immediately, someone’s going to nail their throat beforehand. Doesn’t look like it would be hard either.

  • Robo

    What I always find amazing is cfc/Rus need to have constant propaganda to keep their significant odds advantage in fleets. Have to make up so much bull to get lemons in fleet, that’s sad.

    N3/PL just need to know there’s a fight they can compete in regardless of how outnumbered they are to form.

    A observation.

  • Vily

    It is very sad it’s come to this. Time for -A- leadership to go. You were clearly instructed by Lazarus and Goon leadership to NOT have these issues displayed on the public venue during this campaign. For those looking to get out of this mess in -A-, feel free to contact Vily and Laz. We just might have to take -A- space while we’re at it.

    • Makalu

      good troll, 9/10, will read again

  • Provi Miner

    Dam that was harsh, and kinda pointless. does the carebear give any F$cks where he rats? No not really. I am curious WTF does a renter have the ability to drop sov? Sov should be held by a renter alliance and monitored from there. Oh just an FYI for -A- roams he means enemy territory not your own territory. Still wish the best for A they bring fun fights :)

  • OUR SPACE

    This was in the general section not the CEO/Directors section of the forums.

    Just saying.

  • BigSako

    ” If you are found ratting, we will come for you, we will kill you. ”

    I’ve heard that like 50 times so far, nobody ever was killed. Empty threat, -A- members should just ignore it and keep on ratting.

    • Tizian

      yep. It is a classic.

      Translation from R bearlish: If you do not pay bribery, if we find you, we might kill you, if we are strong enough.

  • hmm

    -A- is not the -A- of ol not by a long shot. Once Maka left that was it. It just a bloated alliance with old ties. Lahari is not going to get anyone to listen, firstly he not russian and will gain no respect, secondly he came from En Garde nuff said.. Dont try make -A- something it no longer is. Disband it and be done.

    • Makalu

      i’m personally quite sad to see the state -A- has come to. Lahari is a fairly competent guy and can probably do a better job than Alhana did, however it might be too little too late. Being right on the front line as well doesn’t exactly help them right now. They will not be able to stop a full on attack (not like we’ve ever been able to stop it in the better days anyway), this will likely lead to a partial cascade. Then again getting rid of a lof of these carebear corps is probably a good thing.

      • Hmm

        -A- needs you more than PL does

  • Random CFC Grunt

    Reset AAA!

  • War anyone?

    “We have to blue CFC which some of us can’t stand and others could care less. However, this is about defending our own space. RIT, OUR SPACE, systems falling in Fey, OUR Space.”

    Will suck dick for isk. All of you are goontards forever. Enjoy having a checkered past you spineless ho-manmas

    • Washi_Meisei

      Yeah and mittins claimed that CFC would not be seeking blue status with the Russian alliances.

      • Dirty Rotten Sneaky Bastard

        Mittens says a lot of things then does the opposite.
        “We will never rent out space like shitlords, BoB did that, we are NOT BoB.” Check.

        “We will never blue the Russians, we will never forget the CFC-DRF war.” Um-hmm.
        “We never abandon our allies, if one of us needs help then all of us will be there to back them up. All for one and one for all.” Remember that one Gentleman’s Agreement? Why didn’t they help you guys on Kevala, when EMP was curbstomping you?
        The fact is: Anyone who believes and trusts the Goons/Mittani is an idiot and will get what they deserve.

        • Washi_Meisei

          Aye very well put.

      • Tizian

        haha. True seens at least … 10 years. But there are always new fools or old once, who have forgotten. btw. same reasn in RL, why US is still No 1. Or as Bernie Madoff would say …

        • o rly

          US #1 of what? for murders? thats about it…

    • lol

      Blue 90% of map, victory still not assured.

  • Digby

    I have said it before, and I will say it again.

    -A- or AAA is well past it’s sell by date, -A- of today is shadow of an memory that was Against All Authorities.

    I have not seen 200 man -A- fleet since … I cant remember when. I understand the CEO wanting to relive the old day’s, but to be honest… he’s will never succeed. He has all the carebers left and none of the PVP powerhouse.. (few solo pvp’ers dont make fleets that take and hold sov).

  • Billbo

    Well with Head FC’s losing Aeon’s afk like this ….nuff said

  • Cobalis

    If you can’t defend rental space, you don’t deserve renters. Leave renters to fend for themselves and shit happens.

  • Alison King

    You have more carebears than provi

  • Trebron Znieh

    I miss the old times with AAA, En Garde and Lahari. I just resubscribed after 15 months and came back to learn that AAA is rolling again and Lahari is CEO ;)

  • Jim Arc

    You are so damn right ! We need to fight for our space , everyone needs to fight not just a few…everyone!!!

  • Max Butched

    TLDR

    -A- is shit

    • Someotherdude

      -A- is full of carebears, and is shit.

  • asdf

    -A- is trying to compete with Red Alliance to see which is more fail, I see.

  • Vlade Randal

    Great post Lahari ! -A- Fleet numbers have doubled and trippled in some cases since your post. ROFL!

  • Demosthenez

    “Well, it seems that a majority of pilots playing Eve are lazy, self serving, and rather quite useless.”

    No just the ones in -A- :)

    “I am going to be coming down hard on CEOs and Directors. If participation does not start to improve then I guess it will be time to remove the dead weight.”

    Translation: -A- will cease to exist as it’s about 99.99999999999% dead weight.

    “Every person that reads this post needs to hit thanks on it so I can see just how many of you actually took the time to do so.”

    Can I hit thanks? You’re bitching and whining has provided me with a few cheap laughs. XD

    tl;dr: -A- is shit (^^)

  • sour

    all this happens cos u have amassed all the bear and useless corps in aaa. u need warriors and corps that pew, not only when u ask em to (eg CTAs), but they do it on their own too. start kicking corps, they r dead weight and look for decent pewers.

  • Alex Pappas

    I like his beliefs, but the post is overall sad.. He should reset and rebuild, even if it means losing much more SOV..

  • Aonus_the_blaster_maniac

    Every Corp/Alliance will go through this issue at one point or another. People ask about why leaders are total assholes. this is exactly the reason why they are the way they are. because once people find their comfort zone ratting and plexing.. things just go downhill and people get lazy with the “meh they are fine without me”

    my hats off to you good sir.

  • Newt Gingrich

    I wish I was in this space dragqueen’s alliance/corp just so I could quit. If your members are fucking ratting when there’s content going down, it’s because they’re broke and you & your alliance CEOs suck at leadership. You’re exactly the sort of “Fantasy bad boss in space” that people stay in hisec and missions to avoid. I mean, seriously, this post is laughable; “I don’t care that it’s the holidays, get to work!” …Jeez, die in a fire already.

  • wormhole guy

    Tired of mandatory CTAs? Tired of all the never-ending crap in null-sec? Join a wormhole corp and tell these fools and their never-ending sov wars to jog off.

  • Alison King

    Tired of mandatory CTAs? then leave aaa space and come to provi
