For once the hype appears to have paid off. What else can one say when local out-populates Jita? Coming mere hours after a hard-fought capital brawl in Cloud Ring, and a good laugh over a Goon Overseer’s hilarious leaked Pings to his alliance:

Msg: Listen but closely Gobbins, for Cloud Ring’s ihubs seem to be burning while you guys are sitting around in some kind of powwow circle jerk. We came in last night with just some subcaps, yet you could not muster proper resistance. We figured tonight you might be ready, that some kind of defense army for an alliance with “Horde” in the name might be able to bring to bear. Yet you sat cowed in your staging ground cowering in terror, apparently because the night before I went into the yard that you keep GOTG in and cut their leash.

Msg: To my dear friends in PH, pursuant to DED Directive 984.11x you have been found in violation of the Moon Mining Treaty that I just made up when I was bored. I would like to remind you guys that we did offer nicely to assist you in your economy fixing efforts since you seem overextended and incapable of defending your backyard. I know that your hisec operation is quite draining so I would simply like to remind you that our GSF Logisticians and Engineers are expertly trained in dealing with moon matters.
We sat in your space for several hours tonight reprocessing griffins and interceptors into wrecks and you couldn’t stop us from setting a couple of ihubs on fire. Surely you can muster a response in your own backyard that’s beyond a few recycable frigates and interceptors? I’m afraid I’m going to have to tell you to kindly yank hard on GOTG’s leash so they can defend your space since they obviously do a better job. Also I have some CONCORD approved harnesses so you don’t choke them when you yank on their leash, you must be humane to your pets after all. (Ping approved by PETA, be kind to your pets everyone).
I warned you last month that this would happen… because you know what happens to the alliance that is normally a meat shield when they can not in turn call their own meat shield? Devastation, that’s what. Also I hope you are using the fuzzy handcuffs and leash that I sent you, as you should always be humane to your pets.
 Horde, I suggest that you forget the promise of progress and support for the new pilot. In the grim darkness of nullsec there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage, death, and the laughter of bees. You would do well to remember

These indicate just how far gone into sadistic role-play some folks over there have descended. That said, We have to give full recognition that they brought us 2 great fights and brought it well.  GOTG, PH, & Friends continued with the strategy of eliminating Goon citadels  (and immediately anchoring friendly ones) in the NPC system of ROIR-Y which the Goons had been developing as an advanced base “behind enemy lines”, as it were, to disrupt mining and ratting further North in an attempt to distract GOTG from the vital task of supporting PH in Cloud Ring.

With so many targets simultaneously vulnerable, both a  confessor fleet and a Capital fleet attempted to station-camp the goons already in system, who were led by

probably the most effective Goon FC, Asher Elias. This was a different kind of fight. No mere “clash of blobs”, but with numerous skirmishes taking place among the various fleet comps, which included Goon   Macharials, Ishtars, Lokis, and Cerbs with a handful of supporting Dreadnoughts along with an Initiative Ferox fleet & Test Alliance in Bombers faced GOTG Confessors, Lokis, Capitals, and Supers along with PH Tempests & Capitals  and NC. who came all the way from Provi in bombers. The battle report does show that the Northeners did make up some lost ground in the ISK war from the capital engagement earlier in the day. Although the fleet I was in sadly had to awox a blue Apostle-class force auxiliary carrier right at the end when the pilot was unresponsive.

Final thoughts.

As personally disappointed I was at having my Super held in reserve during the first fight and then having no Capital opposition (apart from a handful of dreadnoughts on another grid) after jumping to ROIR-Y, as far as these fights are concerned, they were hard-fought all around, and all players on all sides deserve credit for enduring the lag  and time-dilation that at times leave the game borderline unplayable when more than a few hundred ships are on grid (CCPlease Server Uprade maybe?), especially for those of us residing in places with less-than-top-of-the-line internet. Comparing  CCP’s recent ads to what actually happens sometimes makes my case in full. How many other games would I have to speed up the gameplay 800% to produce something watchable? It’s moments like that when you realize that we players who endure the recurring issues of constant freezes and unresponsive game commands during big fights do so more out of commitment to the fellow pilots in our various corps, alliances and our leaders than anything else.

While with the loss of 7 out of 9 targeted Goon citadels in ROIR-Y is a heavy blow to the Goon’s tactical options from ROIR-Y, it’s unlikely they will be departing shortly. Not sure that we can expect any let-up on grammatical facepalm-inducing Kool-Aide any time soon though….



  1. Thanks for your publication. I also think that laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular nowadays, and now are often the only sort of computer employed in a household. Simply because at the same time they are becoming more and more cost-effective, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they can be as effective as desktop computers out of just a few in years past.

  2. Thanks for your post. I also think that laptop computers are becoming more and more popular today, and now will often be the only kind of computer utilized in a household. The reason is that at the same time that they are becoming more and more very affordable, their computing power is growing to the point where they’re as strong as desktop computers through just a few years back.

  3. I have realized some new items from your internet site about pc’s. Another thing I’ve always thought is that laptop computers have become a product that each house must have for a lot of reasons. They offer convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, focus on music and in some cases watch television shows. An innovative approach to complete many of these tasks is to use a laptop computer. These desktops are portable ones, small, potent and convenient.

  5. Thanks for the tips you have provided here. One more thing I would like to talk about is that laptop memory requirements generally rise along with other breakthroughs in the technological innovation. For instance, whenever new generations of processors are brought to the market, there’s usually a matching increase in the scale demands of both the pc memory as well as hard drive space. This is because the program operated by means of these processor chips will inevitably surge in power to make use of the new technological know-how.

  6. A few things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is that there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must match up the features of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is kind of current and there are no computer OS issues, updating the storage space literally takes under one hour. It’s among the list of easiest laptop upgrade treatments one can think about. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  7. One thing I’d prefer to say is always that before getting more laptop memory, look at the machine in to which it would be installed. In the event the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory threshold is 3.25GB. Adding a lot more than this would merely constitute any waste. Make sure one’s motherboard can handle the actual upgrade amount, as well. Good blog post.

  8. Heya superb blog! Does running a blog such as this take a massive amount work? I’ve very little knowledge of coding but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any suggestions or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject nevertheless I simply wanted to ask. Cheers!|

  9. I have seen many useful factors on your web-site about computer systems. However, I have got the opinion that notebook computers are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a good choice if you usually do projects that require a great deal of power, like video editing and enhancing. But for internet surfing, statement processing, and quite a few other frequent computer functions they are all right, provided you cannot mind the small screen size. Thanks for sharing your notions.

  10. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that before getting more computer system memory, take a look at the machine directly into which it would be installed. In the event the machine will be running Windows XP, for instance, the particular memory limit is 3.25GB. Installing over this would simply constitute any waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle the actual upgrade amount, as well. Interesting blog post.

  11. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  12. Interesting blog post. A few things i would like to add is that pc memory needs to be purchased if your computer still cannot cope with anything you do by using it. One can put in two RAM memory boards having 1GB each, by way of example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should look for the company’s documentation for own PC to be sure what type of memory space is required.

  14. Thanks for expressing your ideas right here. The other thing is that when a problem arises with a pc motherboard, persons should not consider the risk of repairing that themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to all the laptop. In most cases, it is safe just to approach your dealer of your laptop for any repair of that motherboard. They will have technicians who have an knowledge in dealing with laptop computer motherboard difficulties and can get the right analysis and perform repairs.

One can mount two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, for instance, but not one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to make sure what type of memory is needed.

For instance, if new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there is certainly usually a related increase in the dimensions preferences of all personal computer memory and hard drive space. This is because the software program operated simply by these processor chips will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technological innovation.
