A Griefmas Story


It’s quintessential Americana, like a pretty rich white girl

Griefmas, the quintessential PL holiday. What do you get the alliance that has it all? Titans? Isk? Laptops? Tech money can buy all these things, but one thing money cannot buy is tears. Not surprisingly, after the fall of the NC the best source of such tears has been -A-. So The Legion went to work; we didn’t welp a Super Capital fleet this year so damned if we didn’t deserve something nice! “You’ll jerk so hard you’ll shoot yourself in the eye!” Shadoo warned, but The Legion would not – could not -be denied.

It started innocuously enough by halting Team -A-‘s pubstomp of RA & pets. After welping several fleets, Team -A- decided to take a new approach to PL: denying fights. Legion Morale Officer Jogyn explained “a person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be convinced of it. This is what -A- have just done, so hold on and enjoy the ride.” After a thread entitled “WE WILL NOT SURRENDER” their eyes began to well and we were assured that Griefmas was destined for greatness.

After halting Team -A-‘s progress, PL began to drop on -A- ~wulfpax~ with impunity. Whenever -A- formed, PL formed. Sometimes -A- managed to escape unharmed, but mostly every -A- roam started with losing a third of the gang to various forms of running and hiding. This persisted for a bit over a week, gang activity dwindled, and then the most peculiar thing happened – -A- began to cope with the loss by imagining some sort of PL vs -A- rivalry. “They camp us because we’re too good” cries were echoed through alliance channels. This evolved into a moral high-ground argument over our perceived use of spies and Titans. Time to turn it up a notch. Dropping as they formed was no longer sufficient, we had to drop before they formed too. With Titans! For whatever reason, -A- were adamant on zerging dictors to keep our Titans – who were typically zero speed siting in a deployable bubble – tackled on the undock. In one instance they suicide’d an 80 man fleet on the LGK undock with 24 Sabres falling victim to their questionable tactic.

PL have had a hard-on for us for a long time. I know that word’s been thrown around a lot already, but fuck,it’s true.
-Vik Reddy

PL really turned into one whore of an alliance. They got a hard on for us too.
– Sionn Klurgh

fuckem we just keep beating on them knowing that we dont have to rest on the crutch of titans

War is won and lost in your heart and minds. Not on the screen.
-Methusela

If PL was NOT shit, then why pray tell to they need to have spys, metagame, nap faggot alliances when they say they are ‘mercs’, neutral, looking for ‘goodfites’ and jump in super caps / counter fleets in the middle of battles to win fights?

The tears were now flowing at full speed, but the pièce de résistance was yet to come. Ebenezer Shadoo, harbinger of Griefmas, came up with another diabolical plan and two days before Christmas a combined PL and NCdot fleet reinforced every tower in LGK, every POCO in Stain, and rape-cage’d a few super staging POSes within jump range for good measure. All the timers were set to come out on Christmas Eve or early Christmas morning. With sixty-some odd moons in LGK, killing 15 of them was irrelevant, but it sure was fun watching -A- squirm to rep things up. Every Carrier that tried to rep a tower ( around six or so) managed to find itself on the receiving end of a Doomsday, until finally:

[06:42:09] galactos > guys we need shield reps like crazy
[06:42:19] galactos > bring logis or ospreys plz

Towers repped by POSpreys on Christmas Eve, a Griefmas miracle!
(some more porn: http://www.kugutsumen.com/showthread.php?12685-A-Happy-Christmas!-December-25-2011)

With major fleets gone for two weeks and roams few and far between, -A- decided to change their luck around in C3-0YD and flex their muscles with an impressive 8 Titans fit to blap a Controlled Chaos subcap fleet under a jammer. Controlled Chaos inadvertently seduced the the -A- Titans with an Abaddon fleet and two Supers. Blinded by desperation, the Titans made a fatal mistake and continued to align outside the POS. Opps. This was all Head Supercapital Commander I’m Down needed. Under His guidance, PL and NCdot subcaps managed to keep the two Titans outside shields long enough to take the jammer down. As the jammer fell, the -A- Titans initiated self destruct. Luckily their cowardice would not go unpunished and the duo got the shit Doomsday’d out of them before the self destruct timers could finish.

Embracing the cockroach mantra after the Titan Debacle, -A- opted to put a ban on all SC movement and moved as far away from Stain as possible to Otsasai for a ~vacation~. Team -A- is now officially in the wind. The Initiative. made their move to lowsec permanent, trying their hand at the elite space mercenary game (imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, thanks guys :3), Nulli officially scrapped their Omist deployment after coming to the realization that Omist sucks the dick (they’ll still try for Omist timers, just doing so while basing out of Delve), Gypsy Band are helping Mactep dogpile Death, and SE are probably ratting idk what it is those folks do. Oh yea, and we aborted two Team -A- CSAAs with two active builds (one Rag, one SC).

While catching -A- Hurricanes 7 mids away is a tad impractical, the idea of running has proven to have permeated -A- culture. This notion presents itself best in the form of killmail bickering. Whole threads (http://www.kugutsumen.com/showthread.php?12684-A-Hirr-today-gone-tomorrow-December-2011) devoted to mocking one another over shit fits. Oh joy of joys! -A- truly is the gift that keeps on giving, and it has been a pleasure sharing it. On behalf of PL I would like to thank -A- for making it so easy.

See you next year~

    That post was a mastery of the delicate art of subtle propaganda.

    I notice PL are putting good distance between themselves and Branch where the main action is now. Hell I'm no fan of goons in the slightest, but I would be interested to see how PL fared against them, sure I think Goons would lose a fair amount but in the end I think would be PL on the receiving end of a good buttfucking.

    Go on PL take on a real challenge, lets see you throw those supers around up North and see what you're made of!

  3. PL Kicks ASS!

    Sounds like a lot of butt hurt little girls after their Uncle just rammed them hard! Goes to show that PL does what they set out to do and create tears among the masses just by shooting them.
    All you little cry baby's complaining that PL cheats, or they use supers to win their fights just wish they had an alliance that will use everything they have at their disposal to win a fight! Maybe if you went to your own alliance command and told them to get your alliances supers out of the anomalies and onto the battle field your own alliance would be more then what it is now.
    This comment isn't to any one alliance but rather every alliance that bitches when PL opens a can of whop ass on you! Who cares about the "Isk War" when your fail alliance drops 300 ships to a fleet 1/2 their size it's like a kick in the groin and PL likes kicking in the groin for the fun of it! Loosing a few T3's or BS's to PL is nothing and never will be!
    It's not the isk, it's the tears we love so much.

      I don't think most of the people who aren't impressed with this article are from -A- or feel in any way wounded by the fact that PL does the predictable and kills supers. Most seem to just be tired at the try-hard chestbeating from the most ~elite~ alliance in EVE which is amuzing itself trying to further stagnate the least decisive war in EVE right now. The relevant portion of this article could have been summed up in a sentence or two not several paragraphs of self-aggrandizing drivel.

    Again, moar PL noise that leaves a bad after taste like burnt pizza, confirms their scared shitless of the goons in the north, only reason there in the south looking for easy fights not good ones.

    Oh shit, I guess we have reached a level where the pathetic is so strong even EN24 commentators can smell it.
    Yes, PL are elite, elite in the same way the 0rphanage are elite… except that they have more than 1000 more pilots.
    So I guess the next super grief tear collecting ploy from PL will be… Camping Jita 4-4? Oh wait… no can do, can't light cynos there, well I guess they cant get more lame than that.
    Since the Atlas war, PL has become the annoying brats of New Eden, well, if that's where the hard on is, more power to you, but don't come bragging about it here, eveonline forums C&P is a more appropriate place for that.

    Rule 1: use everything at your disposal to win.
    Rule 2: avoid fights where you are at a significant disadvantage.

    while I see nothing strategically incorrect on either side, the constant forum masterbation on PL's part makes them silly.

  21. Not sure why people are so surprised about the bias in this.
    It was never supposed to be an objective news article – it was a fun update from PL's perspective about what was happening in the south, posted in a thread about the south on Kugu.

    It was just cut and pasted here, where people assume it's supposed to be "objective."

    1. Of course, the sheer amount of rage it has generated so far was probably exactly what Elise hoped for when he copied it here.

      I mean, half his article is about the how much fun the tears on A's forums and alliance chat are, and you guys are giving PL enough to surpass even that… gg

    I'm blown away PL would actually post a thread calling -A- out for not fighting after the ridiculous amounts of isk they've blown to show they have ABSOLUTELY no interest in being on a battlefield against the south again. This is hilarious! The COMPLETELY false news meant to cover their massive lapse in judgement is right on time I guess, I'm just blown away people actually swallow this shit lol.

    PL came down talking biiiig shit. First major engagement they come with big numbers, Big mouths, and spendy ships. The PL way. It goes like this:
    https://www.pandemic-legion.com/killboard/view_ba

    Guess the message was recieved, PL Brings bigger numbers, gets their shit caved in, runs home with their tails between their legs.

    Well PL may get out played, but be damned if they'll be out spent. Think that loss really hit a nerve. Since then, if they can't field double the numbers, it's Supercaps til the doors fall off. 20 Titans for a fucking pos bash rofl. Congrats guys! You got more basement dwellers cashing in their gamestop paychecks in plexes than us! What a loss! …lol

    PL may be sub par skillwise, but they're not retards. They know damn well no good FC is run his hellcat fleet against double the numbers with supercaps to boot to feed an enemy kills. Fuck guys, at least FAKE like you wanna fight! Hodrop, warp in reinforcements, SOMETHING! Instead they're sending a very clear message. "We do not want a fight,and we will field every isk we own if it means avoiding one. Please stand down we're not here to actually PVP, we're here to shoot at structures and 'tell people' we PVP"

    So the only real victory PL/NCdot holds so far is the boredom one. The South headed North. Looking actual fights, rather than sitting around listening PL supercap pilots jerk eachother off talking about them.
