Executive Outcomes Evacuating Fountain Systems

Avatar
Montolio needs to relax and think about our old times in testagram or OWN UN Floatilla. GSF needs to back down for bit because their teenager son is high on hormones. He'll calm down and love you more once he gets into mid 20s.

I'm really surprised that none of the HBC/TEST leadership isn't doing more to ring in Monty. Otherwise it's nice to see there are cool headed diplos trying to keep things rational.

Oh jesus, are all the HBC/CFC leaders freakin' 12-year-old girls writing in dream journals?

EXE aren't the only ones evacuating fountain. Many testies are getting their assets the fuck out including me.
Avatar
What I am getting out of all this is that Monty wants to fight GSF to show that TEST is REALLY not part of the GSF anymore. Mittens has tried multiple times to calm things down and Monty doesn't want things to calm down. I'm not in either GSF or HBC and I have fought both and I think GSF will win an all out war with HBC only because they have alot more experince fighting wars. Of course HBC has alot of people and could have allies on both sides of the map hiting GSF on 2 or even 3 fronts.

"With us or Against us" ohh boy, does this bring in implications. radicalization always comes before action.

Monty is the only one that apparently plays EvE. Everyone else seems to have mistaken this for BroHugs Online.

Correct, PL are n00bs compared to GSF.

If he was playing EVE he'd either just declare war or drink a bit of concrete and harden up. He just sounds like a whiney brat, either he has the balls to back up what he wants to do or he doesn't.

I think he just isn't acting like a spoiled 16 year old who wants to drive daddy's car. When your bald drop you'll see how made friends with al the baddies in eve and betrayed goons.

Dude just read the previous article on this issue. Montolio was not willing to have any real conversation with goons after he got his 3 regions... complete bi-polar dude.
Avatar
i wonder how many TEST allies , corpos , and members will effectively follow montolio on this one ...maby not as much as he expected...of course , we ca expect full support from raiden and init ... but well who else ?

When this drama was first starting up, it was fun to say "Fuck FA" since it seemed pretty one sided. The more I hear about both sides of the story the more I think this shit is getting out of hand, and Montolio has some crazy shit going on in his head. I don't want war with the CFC and I think most other TESTies feel the same.
Avatar
sounds to me like the power has gone to montys head.The bigger they are the harder they fall.
Avatar
Yeah because it'd be terrible if someone started a huge space war in a game about huge space wars,
Avatar
If montolio doesnt wait enough is going to lose the war befor it begins...Right now N3 and PL are attacking Solar if montolio waits 3 months or so he will be ready for an offensive with the support of N3, if he doesnt do so he will start losing the war, right now, the CFC is not at war with anyone, he can deploy everywhere and i think is more powerful than TEST, BUT if TEST attacks with the support of N3 and PL it will be an easy winRDN also hates the CFC and for sure they will come back if there is a war versus CFC, i know it for sure , i was there.

What do you mean ring in? He's our leader. We all stand by him, including leadership. It's just a game.

Get the fuck out. (This is most likely an FA post anyway)

So EXE is Switzerland? Or was it Poland? gimme a WW1 analogy...

The argument that Eve is only about blunt warfare is an inbred retard's argument, even by the arguer's own rationale. Ostensibly, successfully prosecuted warfare is highly likely to lead to a single sovereign nullsec, further consolidation of power _a la_ the HBC's exponential growth eastword, which is even worse diversity than a handful of large coalitions. Peace and warfare go hand and hand in nullsec. That you lack the sophistication to grasp the simple balance, instead deferring to simplistic jingoism and definition 1 chauvinism, bears you out as that retard.

hmm man? like a child probably... but nvm ur to man about it

Or there's an even better explanation. Players are scared of risk and losing tech money in their virtual internet spaceship game.A lot of people would like an epic war that they can actually remember and talk about. Instead we've got people endlessly running forsaken hubs and having their leadership tell them how great they are. I mean if you can't take a risk and do something exciting in a videogame that's just pathetic.If Montolio gets kicked out there will, essentially, be only one significant coalition in eve anyway so your argument makes no sense.
Avatar
Raiden is so over goons and we have no interest in fighting someone that has to become the CSM chair to win at this game talk about taking the game to a new level of serious, Raiden will support its allies what ever they do if they choose to fight FA one to one then so be it but we know mittaly will not allow it plus zagdul is a raging homo.
Avatar
I think you are mixing up Montolio and The Mittani ;)I'd actually expect goons to gain the upper hand through diplomacy if the cold war drags on for several weeks/months as I'm not convinced of the stability/loyalty of large parts of the HBC (basically everyone other than TEST and PL).

Follow the leader is the way go... doesnt metter whether the leader is a sheep and gets every lion sheep minded... +1 to the brave.

As a TEST Grunt and a TEST Jew I dislike this turn of events - I have no issues with shooting some people within the CFC, but .EXE are solid! In all my dealings with them there have been friendly and active!I understand why... but it just feels like Monty pushed them out I guess!
Avatar
You'd have to be pretty simple to consider it "cowardly" at face value. Test has a long history of giving no fucks to losing ships, some may not want to fight alongside ex-BoB against our BFFs. Lots will follow Monty whereever he takes us, it doesn't mean that 90% of the followers aren't looking forward to sov grinding against the CFC.

Shadoo seems to be trying (if mittens is to be believed): Vee, Endie and I just got off a 1.5 hour Skype call with Shadoo; I want to reiterate to everyone to behave and calm down, not violate the Rules of Engagement with the HBC, and otherwise not to do anything stupid. Our position is consistent, and shared by most of Great War vets in both the HBC and CFC - the people who /want/ a bloc war are not the people who actually have fought one like this. While it is clear that direct relations with some individuals are not healthy anymore, but we are not launching missiles, violating OTEC, or doing much of anything.*** This was a broadcast from the_mittani to all-all at 2013-01-22 21:31:53.194966 EVE, replies are not monitored ***

Do Exe even do anything of note these days? I remmeber we would to to there so called "home system" with like 20 nano ships and they would never undock for anything they were too fucking scared. The EXE now is a shadow of the EXE of the past when they were allied with the GBC... I mean do they even have any Fc's?
Avatar
Until they start shooting each others tech this isn't a true war, it's a play fight. When either side breaks OTEC I'll believe this is anything other than trying to give CFC and HBC members something to do and trying to con them it means something.

Exe and active in the same sentence proves you are a terrible troll or just plain retarded

So if you have a leader that you know is going completely bonkers you're still happy to just lemming it off a cliff with him?

You been in their Systems? you helped kill the roaming Neuts? You laughed at retards ratting in Carriers and getting Dropped on by Gang Bang? No... so Go fuck yourself you child!

So are TEST just gonna let Goons shit all over the the loyal HBC alliances or get this thing started...

Horseshit. Spoken like someone who has no clue what it's like to be a part of either entity. Neither of these groups have a problem roaming and engaging in daily conflict instead of structure grinds, and usually much smaller gangs than the 100+ person fleets and ti-di of war. Check the killboards if you want to see how fraudulent your statement is. Warfare favors structure grinds, which is boring. You obviously have no idea what you are talking about.
Avatar
Actually yes to all of those. done em all with exe left when they were getting very inactive at the end of the delve war. All they are, well were, was a jump bridge alliance
Avatar
Fuck all you pussies. All of EVE wants a WAR!!!
Avatar
You cannot make rash generalized remarks about alliances when you sit in station all day or follow a shepherd.... PL, GSF, TEST, FA, the works have their strengths and weaknesses. No one can be arsed to sit and read shit posts (like this one) while shooting structures, its boring as fuck, why I try avoid doing it. Don't let the fools that used to try and shit on your garden, that would have cut your throat in your sleep, twist your head. Instead do what they are going to do to you a year down the line and what they have always done...

This is some Makalu style bullshit. fuck Montolio

But which side will PL be fighting on. That is the question.

OH NO THE LEADER ISN'T COWING TO MITTENS' EGO; HE MUST BE ~BONKERS~

I've done plenty of solo and small gang pvp and have done a few campaigns including being on the losing side back with the old NC, I'd go so far as to say I've done pvp more than you, so I do know what I'm talking about.There are no significant assets at risk, most players get their stuff refunded by SRP and there's no need for them to get involved in the little roams if they don't feel like it. No alliances or coalitions are going to collapse so there's no real sense of victory or defeat. There's no logging on and hoping that your side gained the upper hand. Who cares if some SRP roam killed some stuff or died? It'll be forgotten the next day.If this thing that Montolio wrote about comes then it's just RvB on a huge scale. Sure, RvB is fun and I can see the appeal of it, but it's essentially consequence free. If I wanted that kind of gameplay I'd be playing something with better mechanics like Planetside 2.

Just for a little clarification. FA does not want all out war. FA has not initiated any of the drama recently. It was TEST who started breaking the no afk cloaking agreements. FA issued a statement saying essentially "we dont know why test is being dicks, maybe they are bored, just ignore them" then both sides agreed that if test wouldn't honor the deal afk cloaking was free for everyone. Things seemed to be back to normal, out of boredom I'll admit we started farming test and their pets/renters for kills. But no different than what test was doing with our care bears. Then the events of yesterday out of the blue TEST brings up two things that happened years ago, neither of which were very important or memorable in an attempt to bait a reaction out of FA. Instead they got a reaction from goons. You are correct, no one wants to see a full on war. But please don't lump FA into the same pile as Raiden. and assume that we have any vendetta against TEST because we didn't and as far as I know we still don't.
Avatar
I feel you man. Even in FA we would joke "Fuck Test" but seriously.. if you take a look at everything is there any real reason to hate each other? Fuck the sibling rivalry tbh

Do the words "North Korea" mean anything to you?

Any war between the CFC and HBC would not involve shooting spaceships, it would involve shooting structures.

No, Montolio needs to fuck off and die. The dude is pure poison and his passive-aggressive, self-centred bullshit is going to lead to a lot of tears as long as TEST accept him as their leader.

Another fail renter gone.o7

Tensions between the CFC and the HBC have escalated still further, after Montolio tried to get .EXE to choose a side in what appears to be an increasingly probable 'Great' war. The following post, made by Mo’Chuisle (leader of Executive Outcomes), explains what transpired over the past few days:

 

As you all know, there has been a new round of TEST/FA drama. I will not go over all of it again, you can find all the retarded details on kugu, tmc.com and even evenews24 if you need a refresher.

We are the only alliance that is both a full member of the CFC and the HBC. We have a great relationship with both TEST and GSF. TEST was the alliance that first offered us space and we moved into Fountain. We stood by TEST when they went on their first bigger solo campaign in Vale, we (ultimately unsuccesfully) grinded structures with them during days where the 40 man we could field in moon time were a substantial part of the combined fleet, when our caps were half the total cap fleet; long before the HBC became the juggernaut that they are now.

Today, TEST is a force of their own. They successfully built a large coalition, they conquered a space empire the size of which is only rivalled by the CFC. Sadly, at the same time relations between the coalitions have been increasingly polarized. As EXE, in our relationship with TEST and GSF, we do not value one over the other. We certainly do not value random members of the HBC like Raiden. higher than GSF, or FA higher than TEST. In our opinion, a war between CFC and HBC is not something that the core of either coalition would profit from, or even enjoy. The people elated about a war breaking out between the two groups would be alliances like Raiden. or FA, people that are carrying a personal chip on their shoulder. If we'd side with the CFC, we would enjoy shooting Raiden., but we would have no interest in taking TEST space. If we'd side with the HBC, talking to some of our friends in MNDS through the sights of our guns might be fun, but we'd have no interest in taking space from GSF.

However, as of today, Montolio felt that it was necessary for us to pick a side in a future, potential conflict, now. For the reasons I outlined above, we do not feel such a conflict is something we should strive for, nor is it a natural conclusion of the current situation. Promising absolute loyalty in a future conflict that we hope to avoid would have meant escalating things on the road to said conflict further if we did so openly, or we’d have to secretly play both sides and double cross one side should war break out. Therefore I could not in good conscience offer that promise. Out of respect for our long and fantastic relations to TEST to this point, instead I offered him to hand over our Fountain holdings peacefully now to assuage any fears of harboring a potentially unsecure ally in HBC space. He accepted.

We will over the next days evacuate all our Fountain holdings into Cloud Ring. Our bridge network will stay up so you can get your own things moved, too, but your corp (and the alliance) will help you. If you have oustandingly large amounts of stuff to move, make sure to contact your corp and alliance leadership.

Following discussions that were extremely brief given the circumstances, Montolio ratcheted up the pressure on .EXE: from Montolio musing the possible scenario of war occuring between the two sides; to him asking Mo which side they would pick; to a demand of .EXE to pick a side.The outcome is a transfer of systems in Fountain and the potential loss of a blue for the HBC. For the chestbeaters in both coaltions, it is yet another sign that war is on the horizon.
