Pity, now HBC will die by itself ... Should have listened to Montolio to go to war against CFC, at least it would have been a glorious death !

The HBC might break up, but TEST will never fail, same with Goonswarm.

My first ever post here, darling :-)

I stopped logging in all that much after the stand against -A- in 49-U particularly because of the trend Monty described. After we'd fought and antagonized RaidenDOT in Vale, we were just going to snuggle up next to them and give them sov? We were going to fight in Esoteria for a bunch of entities I'd never even heard of? I still don't know who the fuck SqueeDOT and Zombie Ninja Space Bears are.The old HBC was fun, traipsing around the universe with PL and shitting on Provi and Geminate. Sitting on a throne in Delve lording over ex-enemies and swatting at PIZZA and BL as a *super-serious eve-winner* is fucking boring.

That Sort Dragon speech makes him look even more of a blurfy charisma vacuum than his CSM8 thread did. And he's the guy they've put at the head of the coalition.When he said he's not a great wordsmith he really wasn't kidding. Wow.

Okay, so I expected Goons/Mittens to win from the get-go. But what'll happen after they "win?" Booooooooriiiiiiiiiiing.
Avatar
So much effort put into keeping PvP from happening in a PvP game. *sigh*

Out with a wimper and not a roar. Monty was only the only sane man in that rotting cesspool of failed alliances.
Avatar
I like the part where it isn't mentioned Montolio left and is now in a PL corp... ELITIST!!!gf
Avatar
I have some sympathy with Monty, dealing with people who have both fragile egos and unjustified entitlement complexes is fucking draining. I hope to see the fun loving TEST guys back soon, they undoubtedly have the largest collection of ascii local porn in all of EVE. Good luck chaps.

The truth is you wanted WAR with Goons but Shampoo wanted Goons Cock planted deep in hes ass Longer . And Test can't beat Goons without PL so there's the breaking news everyone knows it ...peace out

TEST, when you now are up for failscade. Can i have your stuff ?

Then you woke up, and checked your red board, omg we need more blues, then realised you had absorbed any reasonable size Alliance, so Raiden came along and couched up in Que.. sad bunch of idiots HB.

hey man if you're gonna write stuff about my corp at least make it accurate m8 :(

PL is now the biggest alliance in game? Test PL Best PL?

Sad to say but i trust more PL not to do something stupid, Montolio displayed lately a very instable personality, which mean we can all relax and go back to small/medium scale pvp, were the real fun lies in eve

I hear that alliance is a test case only anyways... ;)
Avatar
So TEST got their coalition highjacked by PL. This is serious metagaming here... I think TEST totally failed their coalition project and should come back in CFC before there is more damage. Next step for PL will be to merge N3 with HBC, then the grand finale: CFC assault.
Avatar
Get fucked nerd, we're coming for you.
Avatar
He was not pushed out for the love of god get your shit right. He went full retard wanting to take TEST to lowsec/npc 0.0 making it a sovless alliance without any solid plan just going ahead with it. That this was gonna blocked was to be expected. People did not spend the better of the past year grinding shitty sov just to throw it all away because montolio is having a fit.
Avatar
He should have fucked PL up after shadoo told him to sit in a corner and cry for a week.He should have made that War against CFC and go out with a glorious balls to the walls attitude.All that drama and all that politics.....HBC stronger then ever ? We are not PL pets ? right...He lost the only thing a man can lose, his word and his balls.

lol PL already fucked you so deep, there is no room left :P

It is a game, friend.You're suppose to have fun in games, not win over some randoms space-respect in a comment section.

Fuck this shit, Monty should have bailed out with all alliance isk and assets he could grab and then disband the alliance in flames. Let us see what happens when the ex hbc corps disorganize and start shooting each other, let us see said corps trying to reclaim the space, and let us see n3 and cfc and every other power bloc in the game try to overrun said space.

Burn Amarr 4/1/13 Nullsec is boring, time to have fun again

Pretty much like you guys can't handle your internal politics? Rather than support your alliance when it needs you, you bail for Greener grass?? What a funny, irrelevant little man you are.

"all I can say is that it was fun up until it wasn't. Iwould never run a coalition again, it changes you".I wonder, if he had more competent people under him, he would probably still behaving fun.
Avatar
Neither Ingen nor Fras tolerate much bullshit, and they're much more forthcoming with political developments than the last TEST CEO. Montolio didn't like to communicate with the alliance as a whole, and we lost direction as a result.
Avatar
Not sure what to think of this, but agreed if playing Internet Spaceships has become not fun for Montolio, time is ripe for change.

Can't die, Fras - you'll just wake up in a new suit :)

TEST was officially declared PL pets after a fated Starcraft game in which TEST cheated and still lost.

I do have love for the CFC.But at the same time...better for a nasty fun romp in the whorehouse than to sit on the lawn with your same old girlfriend who doesn't like you to play outside the fence in your heavily policed little suburbia.Or...Fights in EvE are fun. There are no real big fights very close. Bros can fight bros and still be bros.If you're in EvE a while you can see it over and over again. Sometimes your enemies become your friends. Often your friends become your "enemies." A little slapfight would have spiced this dull galaxy up.

"Сученок" - is diminutive form of "сука"(suka). The "cука" in russian folklore refers to a man who are literally making a bad things for people which were kind for this man. Something like this. http://www.slovoborg.su/defini...

Politics, in general sucks, and diplomacy in a game like Eve...well...I cannot blame him one bit.

Events are developing rapidly in the HBC; we'll have a full piece about this out tomorrow, but for now, the news: 

In the last week, Kaesong Kosmonauts, containing much of Zulu Squad (one of the main HBC social squads) announced that they would be leaving TEST due to issues with alliance leadership. At the same time, the TEST lead diplomat, Walter Stine, announced that he was departing the alliance and joining Pandemic Legion. 

Shortly thereafter, two separate 'drama threads' broke on Kugutsumen. One thread featured a conflict between Montolio, Raiden and THORN (HBC alliances) over the disposition of Querious space. Another thread featured Tribal Band venting about being denied space in Paragon Soul in addition to their Period Basis holdings.

Tonight, Montolio has abruptly resigned his leadership of TEST; rumor is that there was a conflict with his lieutenants about the future direction of the alliance. Currently Boodabooda is the CEO of Dreddit, the core corporation of TEST, Ingen Kerr has CEOship of the TEST executor alliance, and Fras Siabi holds the shares to both. 

Montolio has posted a resignation announcement on Reddit:

v0v

Shit was too much work, it wasn't fun anymore. We had friends for strategic reasons not because we actually liked them. Internal politics was shit. Running a space empire was shit. Being on call for EVE 23/7 was shit.

I love TEST and I love Dreddit, I have friends in both. I didn't steal anything on my way out or disband/kick anyone. I just couldn't handle the situation we were in.

It is entirely my fault that we ended up in that situation, all I can say is that it was fun up until it wasn't. I would never run a coalition again, it changes you.

Ingen Kerr and Fras Siabi have the wheel now. 

 

Shadoo of Pandemic Legion offered the following comment on HBC jabber: "Well my friends, all I can say from experience is: It is hard enough to herd sheep when said sheep have a view of a luscious green field in sights. It's a different ballgame to try and herd the sheep after they reach said green luscious field and wonder what to do with all this grass."


Fras Siabi then posted a thread on the TEST forums announcing his leadership, along with that of Ingen Kerr:

Tonight has been a long night. There is a lot of work that needs to be done with TEST going forward. The three page masterpiece of a CEO update that I was about to push tonight became pointless and I now get to spend the weekend writing a new one. In any case, I have conferred with Ingen, Beffah, and Sort Dragon and we have decided that it would be best to toss the "official" herding position of leader of the HBC over to Sort Dragon, or as he will now be know Surgeon General Sort Dragon (I'm drinking ok?). This will allow us in TEST to spend the time focused on fixing TEST's problems and going on a 30 day purge diet to get the toxins and shit out. Stay tuned for a long slurry of words and sexual innuendos sometime this weekend.  

Summary So Far: Montolio out as TEST lead, Fras Siabi in, HBC is now officially led by Sort Dragon of Pandemic Legion while TEST undergoes purges.

Update: A message from Sort Dragon, broadcast to the HBC.

Over the last 24 hours(hell if we are talking about test lets be serious 6 hours) we have seen some shifts in the leadership in alliances in the hbc.

This should not be considered a sign of weakness this should be considered a chance for us to strengthen what we have as a phoenix would out of the flames.

I am not a wordsmith like the greats of Elise or Shadoo but I promise you this I will do my best to keep this coalition on track and to work towards a future where the hbc can be back at top strength.

Montolio helped birth this coalition lets not forget this and now it is my turn to do try to run this show, I will be contacting and talking with each and every alliance leader before the end of the weekend and there will be some much needed trimming of fat and slimming down to fit into those nice slim sexy jeans that we fit back when we started rocking this show.

For all of you who believes this is test abandoning you this is not the case this is a time for test to actually enjoy being a member of a coalition and not having a vast amount of pressure placed on them. I still look forward to seeing them along side all of us in fleets and jabber and mumble all test needs is a chance to adjust and enjoy themselves again.

This is not a reason to evacuate at all. I will organize to have a char made and put into probably test where I can collect evemails and such from people who want to pm me with things. If otherwise you need to talk to me you can do it on Jabber or on the forums and I will get to your pms as fast as possible.
