Happens from time to time, I don'g agree with the other commentors that this is somehow a nail in the coffin.

We (me and my buddies) have already moved our assets to lowsex, except for some pvp ships that can be sold if triget sells us out.

"The name has shocking similarity to that of a for umalt, a former member to Nulli Secunda's entry/renter alliance Nulli Tertius, though there is currently no known association between the two."if you didn't cut away most of the screenshot you would have that association right in your face.

Triget isa fine man and his committed to the lalliance. Its GRIM whos backstabbing TRIBE. HE has already showed that he wants to divide us. GRIM will prolly split INCOV out as soon as he can make a deal thats good enough for INCOV and buddies.

Lel interesting perspective, if they want to blame the cyno alt for it rather than the actual guy who did it fine by me. =) And Equestria is an alt corp jfyi.

Shut up, noone is selling noone out. Incov will maybe leave with some not committed corps but tribe will not die.

The theft was done by the alt of a S2N member. Apparently most of the proceeds are going towards his corp. Seeing as S2N has no tech, I suppose the next best thing is stealing tech products from others.

Looks like Mandozer reclaimed his 'loan' to trig...

What do you mean "if" triget sells us out? Getting him to be a dictator was already selling the spirit of Tribe. This was supposed to be a democracy.

That's why we all lol at you tribe bros democracy in eve is so fucking stupid and if the spirit of your alliance is democracy and that's it you shouldn't even exist. But no worries if you fail-cascade we will find someone to give your space too don't even think for a second that you can just go make another alliance and try to keep Period basis. Monty is a good man but hes not stupid so don't make the mistake to assume he is.

It could have worked but too many j4g pubbies... So many people who deliberately wanted it to fail. I hate to see that all my hard work for the alliance was lost.

Good riddance.

There's already a deal that we'll be blue after we split.

Nope.jpgThe only reason we went for that triarchy 'democratic' structure (about as democratic as my ass; the only difference between what we had then and what we had now is that we used to have three people telling us what to do, rather than just one) is to keep all the TASHA/99% bros happy when we merged, who understandably might not want a relatively unknown leader taking full control of 'their' alliance.And due to RL reasons taking out one of the triarchs, the 'change to a dictatorship' is no more than bureaucratic paperwork anyway, Trig was essentially running the alliance with Aura as a senior advisor anyway. Only difference is now Trig actually has to listen to Grim when he gets all eleet peeveepee, rather than telling him to jog on.

44b isnt that much, but I had to giggle...

cI don't know where the whole "democracy" thing came from (probably EN24) but it was clear that triget was the primus inter pares after about a month or so with Kage being tied up irl and Aura doing all the IT stuff. Nowadays I don't even know who is in what corp anymore so MERGER SUCCESS .
Avatar
Blue does not equal space and tbh if you fail-cascade is there even a reason to keep something entirely useless that has proven to be useless around?
Avatar
We have often 100 people in your fleets, dumbass.That's hardly useless.
Avatar
I'm sorry tell me again where these 100 people have been when we where of grindingEsoteria I didn't see tribe at all. Sorry but your fleets beam oracles are pretty much useless.
Avatar
well, this sounds bad

2 days ago we had 100+ man fleet in EUTZ as a backup for you guys, and a few days before our "useless" oracles kicked coven ass so hard that we could see a brown path all the way to their home in npc space:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...The kickass battle starts at 24 minutes point.

"Hanger"? Pleeeeeease.

No need for a new home. We're happy where we are, killing our enemies left and right.

Ha ha ha, sometimes I'm glad we rolled on over to TEST, because you j4g pubbies were overwhelming the bittervets.

Nah, this is some random idiot from test sodon't expect him to know anything about our contribution.

TRIBE was never a democracy, we had a triarcy following the merger and as TASHA was twice the size of the 99% TASHA had 2 exec representatives and Triget was the 'public face' of TRIBE. Obviously there's a lot that happens behind the scenes with regards to decision making. The triarchy worked just fine when you had 3 people, it was implemented in TASHA with next to no issues what so ever.I stepped down not because I believed the triarchy was unworkable or even a major problem, but because it was one of the cards Grim was playing as an excuse to attempt a coup. I wanted to show the general member base that TRIBE leadership was willing to do what it takes to move forward and this negated one of his main arguments. Now as the Human Resource director Grim must practice what he preached, he is fully responsible for all HR in TRIBE and that was the only other issue he raised. Either Grim succeeds in his efforts or fails and is removed from office, either way TRIBE has averted a failscade.With regards to this heist, although a significant amount of ISK was taken, it was ISK that we were planning to put aside for a rainy day, I guess that day came sooner than anticipated! We still have our moon operations running and our SRP is unaffected.

We were not asked to deploy to esoteria. In fact we were asked to stay in HED.

Hey dickhead, why don't you take your homophobic spergs elsewhere.

Please don't start this wulfpax shit. Why does everyone in PB claim this and then lose all their space within a week.

I am in tribal, while I don't think the doomsaying is true. That this theft happened is a serious laps in security. I checked the character name, and low and behold this characters olny nullsec experience is one corp for 19 days. I wouldn't trust anyone moving mystuff without colateral in my corp unless they 3 months old in my corp. Fuck if it was alliance assets I would only have it be myself or a person in the same executor corp for MORE than a year.Considering the chars non-existent history, and desire to get into position to move alliance assets, its no surprise they ran off with the gold.That this scam was so stupid and obvious makes me wonder if it was a inside job to give this guy roles to do it, a alt?
Avatar
Bad article is bad, fo rumalt is cyno alt bro.
Avatar
Yeah, a lot of these problems come from reckless recruiting. We should kick out everybody 1) less than 6 months old, 2) less than 12m SP, and 3) less than 3 months of corp history with us.

Test just gave them a sizable loan as well. This coincides with Securitas receiving his 1 week notice walking papers.

People shocked that a dude who was booted from TEST [Grimbold] for awoxing ITT. Who is also still blacklisted from TEST. Congratulations.

Having once been in tribe and witnessed how horrible ur fleet doctrine is and the fact ur FC's welp almost all their fleets I highly doubt the HBC would have any trouble evicting your fail alliance

This news piece doesn't surprise me at all, scrubs

The whole roles and access system needs to be reworked. The UI in this department is trash, and ceo's need more options to control accress for hangars and pos's.
Avatar
I'm just saying that if TEST / HBC wants to "get rid" of us, we can get difficult too. We can easily do the same thing NCDOT did and delay their getting of PB for months, and make it cost heavily.TESTies, don't make us do fight you - we don't want it but we're ready for it.

I find it hilarious how quickly people forget. Anyone remember Dave06? Would have robbed you Testies if not for the fact that he was literally retarded. Its not the first, last, or even biggest Alliance theft to ever happen. If anyone actually thinks that this is failscade worthy then you too are retarded.Tribe is here to stay. It's not our fault that you're all jelly of how we've made as much progress in 5 months as most of you're alliances have in 5 years. It's ok, be jelly, keep talking failscade if it makes you feel better. :P

TRIBE has, for the first time ever, been victimized in a fairly significant hanger theft totaling 44b in assets. Assets include moon minerals, composites, fuel blocks, and blueprints. The theft occurred earlier today with reports of it surfacing on Kugutsumen jabber and forums.

[]

Source: Kugustumen

A pilot by the name of fo rumalt, stole a considerable amount of Nanotransistors, moon-related items and blueprints. A trusted jump freighter pilot for TRIBE, and responsible for moving assets for the alliance had roles to the hanger in which the items were taken. The name has shocking similarity to that of a for umalt, a former member to Nulli Secunda's entry/renter alliance Nulli Tertius, though there is currently no known association between the two.

Other claims were made by fo rumalt regarding the incident. In addition to the above assets, he claims to have stolen two Jump Freighters, and that TRIBE had purchased pilots for him. "Well, I have no idea about that," wrote triget, current TRIBE CEO, when asked about these claims. "The notion that we could have ever afforded to buy someone a char before this month is laughable."

TRIBE had been facing financial issues, only becoming solvent a month ago. They have just recently gained a buffer of ISK, with roughly 40-60b in reserves currently. "Our income statements, on a per member basis, are on par with TEST's" triget wrote, speaking in regards to Tribal Band's income and financial stability. Triget noted that only about two weeks of income was taken with the heist, and that it had not set back any plans or operations.

While the theft is not tremendously large for TRIBE, it is their first, and has been taken as a valuable, if harsh, lesson to the new 0.0 alliance. "These things happen, trust is a valuable commodity in Eve, and apparently misplaced in this instance."

Player since 2006, where my experienced flipped from high sec nobody to Capital FC in TEST. I primarily play EVE in the area of capitals, but have experience in logistics and trade. I occasionally write good things and even have a twitter: jinli_mei
