From Goon Comms:

hahaha I bet you all got really excited when you saw this picture.

With TEST’s recent conquest of the south, they’ve formalized their pseudo-coalition into a full fledged one. TEST has communicated to us for some time that they would like to operate independently from the CFC. It has been made clear by the leadership of TEST that they now view themselves not as a member of the CFC, but instead as leaders of the Honey Badger Coalition, a CFC Friend/Ally, mirroring our own development of the Deklein Coalition alongside the NC.

This new bloc has developed goals and metrics by which they will operate, which sometimes will align with our own but other times may not. They are a fully independent group, working in pursuit of their own interests. We have been assured that if a credible threat ever presented itself to CFC space, TEST and the HBC would be there for us. This post will cover a baseline of our policy moving forward. Any individual deployments south will not be supported by the coalition.

As a result we have opted to make a number of alterations to our standings lists and will be setting the following alliances to Neutral effective server downtime on 8/16:

Banderlogs Alliance [.RU]
Li3 Federation [L3F]
Mistakes Were Made. [O7M8]
Squee. [PWNY.]
Test Friends Please Ignore [DAWWW]
Tribal Band [TRIBE]
Viking Empire [FORGE]
Zombie Ninja Space Bears [ZN-SB]
High Rollers [DICE]
The Retirement Club [4O1K]
THORN Alliance [THORN]

Blues that [i]will not[/i] be reset by GSF:[/u]
Test Alliance Please Ignore [TEST]
Pandemic Legion [-10.0]

TEST has made clear that they intend to keep the HBC as separate entity with parallel goals and we will support them in making this distinction possible. Granting the HBC automatic blue standings blurs that line. This change of standings illustrates our respect for the independent coalition that Test has built, and expresses our intent to treat them as such.

We understand that several CFC allies have relationships with various groups within the HBC. This standings list reflects GSF’s “default” standings going forward. Should allies wish to keep standings beyond what’s listed here that is fine, however this should serve as notice that when flying in mixed fleets or engaging in PVE in empire with HBC allies you may come across mixed standings and incidents where this occurs will be measured against NBSI rules.

So this leads to another subject, with regards to coalition gangs going down south to shoot HBC guys. Normally we’re NBSI. In this case, it becomes a little more complicated. We want to avoid doing anything in the South which would harm TEST’s and the Greater HBC’s ability to wage war on -A- and the rest of the Southern Alliances aligned against them. To that end we request that the following rules of engagement be observed should CFC alliances decide to fire upon any members of the HBC in space held by the HBC.

[*]Do not attack structures owned by HBC member alliances
[*]Do not afk cloak in systems owned by HBC member alliances
[*]Do not camp the stations or jump bridges owned by HBC member alliances

Intentionally seeking to operate within a hairs’ breadth of the letter of the law while flagrantly ignoring the spirit of the law will be dealt with harshly. You have been given notice and there will be little quarter given to those who seek to undermine this new stage in our relations with TEST and the HBC.

Analysis

Ever since their creation; TEST Alliance Please Ignore have lived under the shadow of GoonSwarm Federation, to the point of being labeled Goons-lite in the collective memory of both DekCo and non-DekCo players. This is something which has long bothered egotrippers like Montolio and company who – during the last months – have long “begged” (their words) for an opportunity to do something on their own and basically prove themselves.

This whole “rebranding” of the TEST wing of the Deklein Coalition doesn’t exactly “cut” with us. It won’t be until TEST resets GoonSwarm Federation and officially severes all ties to their current coalition top tier alliance (GSF) that a true testament of their “independence” can be attested. In summary, it is quite easy to “do claim stuff on your own and make a name for yourself” with a batphone in hand.

The announcement depicted above does nothing but further draw the line, read carefully and you’ll see a clear translation: We have standings towards TEST and Pandemic Legion, their pets list get the usual NIP treatment. A pet list which I should mention hilariously include historically rich B0B/IT/RKZ corporations as EVOL and RKK (4O1k which I am a member of). I am pretty sure – if the rumors were to be true – SirMolle must be rolling on his grave right now for this epic NIP sell out. :)


Everyone’s a Patriot during the sweet times of peace

And while the claims of the Deklein Coalition of not giving a hand to the TEST subset (and TEST not asking for help) could be honored, instances like yesterday’s, where a 150+ Fatal Ascension fleet came to aid the already swollen TEST/PL/Pets fleet in 49-U – shows otherwise (which also gave -A- a perfect blueballing excuse regardless of TEST massive numbers). The promise of the rest of the Deklein Coalition – of not coming again to saving the day whenever shit really hit the fan and backs are against the walls as it happened during Delve V – feels a bit farfetched.

Will they finally make it “big” or again call for help when things go sour? what do you think?

      Interesting though that the heading in the GSF forums is "Reset Test" – the CFC blue list IS shrinking not being added to – and yet riverini writes as if the Cfc blue list is growing. He even manages to insult his new coalition overlord who I have little doubt he has barely spoken to.

    Nice words guys but we all know it's bullshit. If I don't like something in my life I change it. You all know very well what your coalition is, what your leadership thinks and how all this situation will evolve. Be honest with yourself and admit this. If you really don't like the game your alliance is proposing to you grow balls and GTFO, join something smaller and save this game. Big changes come from people, don't expect them from your leadership

          Just going to say that the days of those small fights are gone, CFC or HBC bring around 750+ people to these fights and their enemy must bring the same to have a chance against it. In my opinion I see it as evolution of the game BUT I'm not saying its a good thing nor that its fun, its just how it is.

        BAMbam's post was awful but testies who can't be bothered to get some basic knowledge about what happened to EVE during the seven years before they graced the game with their presence are even worse.

        Tbh imo it's one of those things that get you labeled as goon pets all the time – because for everything that happened before your time you are either completely ignorant or your knowledge is limited to whatever the goon wiki writes about it – and while joe average goon has been around for long enough to put these wiki articles into context and take them with a grain of salt you just take stuff at face value.

        Once upon a time there was an alliance called Band of Brothers (BoB) which your goon friends may have told you about. That alliance had quite a few allies that were substantially weaker than BoB itself and which everyone called "BoB pets" for lack of a better word. BoB leadership realized that having their allies called "pets" was not conductive to morale and established the term "Greater BoB Community" or GBC to refer to BoB and their allies/pets.

      It does mean you are a gay couple. You are holding hands. Have you ever seen two straight guys holding hands? No. Have you ever seen gays doing it? …

      You are in denial over your homosexuality, clearly, but not all gays run around and shout it out. There are many gays who live their homosexuality in privacy simply because they see their sex life as private.

      Keep denying it, but know you need not to be ashamed of yourself. All men love cocks, primarily their own, and if we could lick our balls like dogs then we would do it, too.

In my conversations with old friends in CFC they consider TEST spoiled loud mouthed underachievers that must be bailed out time and time again.
    Delve was the latest example – the fact that the averge CFC grunt essentially ground down sov simply to hand it over to test (who then chest beat until thier nipples bled) didnt sit well with many within the CFC – hence the warning above.

    All the people saying "blah blah blobbers no fun fights stop having blues I'm a buttsore queer" needs to realize how fucking AMAZING it feels to literally have so many friends that your enemies are too scared to fight. Kb stats aren't everything and it makes you feel like you're part of a bigger movement than yourself, opposed to the typical sentiment that us grunts feel somehow pointless. We (TEST) will be blue to goons for a long time because of our bromance but quite frankly we have enough size not to need them, so we went our separate ways because the difference between 1400 and 3000 is insignificant besides just lagging ourselves needlessly.

      Lol yes because the sense of satisfaction of blueing up half the map and essentially becoming the retarded frat on campus, is much greater than fighting out blobbed 3 to1 n still either winning or making the baddies walk home w/ a lot less ships. Ur right. Ill take blob.

      Making friends is not hard, hey i suck, do u suck? Lets blue up! U guys really need to get sheep lvl 5 untrained asap

        Because managing and motivating tens of thousands of ADHD neck beards is easy shit. Not to mention supplying them and etc. so yes being resourceful and doing what you can to win is a lot better than fighting outnumbered and gettin your teeth kicked in repeatedly in your own living room mr hotshot ace pilot and professional badass.

      Thanks for confirming what everybody already knew. You feel good about blobing everybody else to a point where theres no way goodfites can be had due to lag or just 6 minutes worth of fighting taking 1 hour…

      No difference at all of all risk averse high sec carebears.

      OFC its a sandbox and you can do w/e you want. But you already lost @ eve when you had to beg and cry for ccp to nerf the shit out of everything that could deal with such massive amount of carebers like you all.

    1. historical facts

      Both of them are too cowardly to let that happen. This is actually a smart long-term political move for them to do to prevent internal implosion and drama that usually happens when too many alliances stick together under the same name. It also means if there is a major conflict that occurs, not all of the members of this coalition are automatically involved – so less bad blood and need to get involved.

      1. It's not complicated

        It's not that HBC and CFC are cowardly. It's actually much simpler, they just actually like each other, you know, not just as EVE allies. If and when things stagnate, CFC will do as they've always done (and now HBC likely too) and reset each other's members a few at a time for fights (but don't expect anyone to lose sov).

        If you're thinking about the context of the relationship between Goons and TEST in terms of political intrigue in EVE, you're doing it wrong. TEST pilots are bros with Goon pilots, have been since the fomration of Dreddit, and subsequently TEST. Nothing complicated about it. Just friends being friends.

        Saying CFC and HBC should go to war is just ignorant of eve history. It has nothing to do with being safe, or making smart decisions, or being cowards.

        TEST and Goons just like each other too much to start wars for no reason. Why start (actual) wars with good friends?

    To the rest of eve,

    Shut up HBC or CFC by fighting them..Talk is cheap all they hear or read is whine whine, complain complain, whine whine. Arent you care bears sick of docking up and complaining? take their friggin space or shut the heck up.

      Got a battle report for that (as in a br doctor)? It looks like a- lost but not horribly after the bombing runs wiped quite a few test ships.

      Try and keep the propoganda down a bit as well. It's fairly obvious looking at the killboards and fleet numbers that TEST is holding okay for now but are losing a lot of ships.

            but… if you really want to get all nit-picky, i think semi-new guys blapping the living crap out of chest-beating braggart bittervets flying tengus worth a lot more than what we were using (newbro i love you!) says something about "elite pvp".

    I like -A- they turn up for fights in proper ships, good for them. However; please stop the insentience whing about 'the blob', it makes you all sound like bitches. To put this in context you stood down your 700 man fleet because the other side turned up with a large blob. It's not like there were 50 -A- Tengu's out looking for a right and TEST formed up 1200 to blap them. You're engaged in sov warfare, it's about winning not honourably space PVP at the Sun. If you want GFs don't do sov warfare.

        I'm not in TEST don't care if they crash and burn, I stopped doing sov warfare ages ago because it's too much like a fucking job. Sov warfare is blob warfare, moaning about having 'too many friends' in a MASSIVE MULTIPLAYER games is retarded. The only thing sov warfare is good for is the internet drama that follows it.

  38. Test Grunt

    CFC and Test are Bros, why does being friends with another alliance or coalition automatically show that we're not doing this outselves, we're still just goon pets, we're still apart of dekco bla bla bla.

    FA showed up pretty much unannounced, and in a drake fleet….its not like they were moving 100 super caps down with a large alphafleet in tow to help pull a struggling test fleet out of the fire by the Obviously superior -A- tengu fleet. They just wanted in on some good fights and kill -A- pilots.

    I can't blame -A- for standing down, we did the exact same thing to them a few nights before. The only difference is, is that they were trying to flip a station, we were trying to save it. We saved it, we saved I believe all of the timers that night as well. and -A- sat back, smug in their latest operation blueball and that "Test can't do anything without the help of the CFC"

    And to be honest, we don't want catch, no one wants catch. "catch by august, providence by september" are jokes….much like the spouting of "Reset goons" "vfk by the end of the month" and "when we headshot vfk…" -A- believes their own prapaganda so much that its sort of sad.

    I understand not wanting to lose 500m in tengu's every time you die in a fight, so i can understand the appeal of blueballing in the face of higher numbers.

    Why not ship down to something less expensive, more expendable, and have some fun dying in a fire like we did last monday attempting to save our station?

    Can someone please explain to me why this difrentiation is so important for Test, I don't get it.
    Goon / Test relationship:
    – Shooting each other's POSs ? No
    – Camping each others infrastructure? No
    – Helping each other if SOV is threatened? Yes
    – Helping each other if in a serious super capital fight? Hell yes
    – Roaming each others space? Yes – but only shoot pets!
    The result is that they are still considered a coalition, and NC. or SoCo will be very reluctant to go 100% into a fight, because the other half of the coalition WILL come running. The only change will be that Test and Goons can farm each other's pets, so they don't have to go 50+ jumps for 'pew pew'.
    It wont change the stagnation of 0.0.

    August 13, 2012 at 1:06 pm Reply
    1. Here we go again...

      If anything it encourages stagnation. It gives goons/test some cheap targets to shoot up (eachothers pets) while not diminishing or weakening their sovereignty. Thereby decreasing their need to go elsewhere to pew pew.

      Sure, neighboring non-friendly alliances might roam in and provoke a response every so often, but there is no other power bloc that is strong/suicidal enough to challenge them.

      For the time being, the powers that be maintain their sovereignty and have the deciding vote in creating any serious action out in 0.0. In retrospect, this does seem to be a regular occurrance every other year or so…….

    PL doesn't need to hold sov to get good moons. They have moons in low sec and in 0.0 controlled by OTEC / CFC. In return they provide CFC (incl HBC) with FC's, a superfleet and deterrence. It's easier to hold on to those moons than fight against Goons to get Sov that can be contested.
