why_so

WHY so Seri0Us has had a rollercoaster of a time for the last month or so. The Wicked Creek based alliance had begun haemorrhaging corporations to neighbouring alliances such as Nulli Secunda, with said corporations stating that the alliance was beginning to crumble and that rot had set in. It looked as if WHY so Seri0Us had managed to stop the bleeding and had been bringing in more corporations and pilots to replace those that had jumped ship; until today.

Zervas Aeronautics, one of the main corporations of the alliance has left, with rumours abound of leadership embezzling alliance level funds at the expense of their corporations and members. The departure of Zervas is a shocking body blow to the alliance that has relied on Zervas Aeronautics for a large proportion of their US timezone fleets, as well as their logistics capabilities. To compound matters for the failing alliance, there has been speak whispers of an impending reset by Nulli, which would likely see WHYSO begin to fall apart at a much faster rate.

WHYSO has had a tumultuous past. It was born out of the remains of R-I-P, the Wicked Creek alliance that suddenly disbanded one night, losing all of their space in one fell swoop. This was said to be the work of a rogue alliance director that had become disillusioned and pulled the plug without it being decided. Many stories have flown around as to what really happened, but it seems that history is beginning to repeat itself albeit with less of an instantaneous disbanding and more of a ‘bleeding out’ failscade. The Detorid and Wicked Creek area has seen a lot of unrest in recent times; with The Unthinkables resetting their neighbouring alliances, and false smiles allegedly being put on ‘for the greater good of the area’.

With WHYSO’s declining activity, diplomatic tensions and corporations leaving for greener pastures, only time will tell if they can cut out the rot from within, or if the curse of Cascade Imminent taking the region means that there’s another ‘cascade imminent’ on the horizon.

    That sucks. I thought INK and Whyso had a really cool campaign going on early last year. Whenever it was that Cascade Imminent died, anyway. Seemed like it was one of those campaigns where the fights were small enough that individual pilots would've made a difference. There's nowhere near enough of those in Eve.

    while why so, aint a bad alliance in any way, they are doomed to either be absorbed as a minor partner in the greater n3 coaltion or to be squeezed by the expanding red alliance to nothingness. Sucks but they kinda of need get used to having larger capable corps leaving to avoid an unpleasant future.

      INK is doing great from what I know. Whyso guys have been great and RA has had a great time flying along side them. This reset people speak of is friendly for the most part. Space, Vince, Gorga, Rots etc all are in a channel with many more like myself talking about which nut of Solars will be kicked next. People outside have no idea how friendly things really are. It is just a video game after all. As Shadoo said just the other day which was in my mind very good advice given to any fellow pilot in Eve.

      Shadoo
      " you have to be aware of the limitations of your friendly fleets in an engagement, and plan/act accordingly — because no amount of yelling at them will make them any better/able to execute stuff. I saved myself an early heart attack once with that approach "

    First I'd like to point out that the author of this article, Mino Noud, played justr as much a role in the declining health of the why so seri0us alliance as any other entity leaving the Why So Seri0us "Franchise." He clearly has bias as he's now swinging from the RA teet with the promise of "free" sov and "good" fights. Don't believe it? Look at Dotlan. Dotlan Don't lie. Secondly, Zervas Left because it intends to survive and where whyso was heading there was no coming back from. The leadership made a decision and decided to make a move elsewhere. The drama should be over but the lies and the rumors continue to circulate. EN24 should hire some new reporters that can publish fact and not rumors that might as well have come from their own imagination.

      Whyso readily painted Zervas as traitorous pirates without scruples when we basically made up a bulk of their US timezone and us leaving removed a huge Jenga block from an already leaning tower. They are pissed off at the abrupt leaving but you can't ride a dead horse to the bank. We left Why So because our own members of many months were disgruntled and had begun leaving. Since relocating we've had a serious uptick in activity, in morale and corp confidence and we're faring better than we did in Whyso. The soon-to-be-homeless haters may spin it different ofc…and I hope they do, from curse or wherever they get relocated to. noobz

    I saw this coming a long time ago. I will not hide behind a false name.

    When I first joined whyso, purely because a friend had asked me to come back to the game. They were a mess. PvP was a kitchen sink you wouldn't believe. I tried to organize their pvp backbone. Granted there was some success but when you have two guys leading the Alliance who 1) Don't read mails nor reply to them in a timely fashion 2) Backseat everything 3) Are barely on 4) Put incompetent people in alliance roles. You are going to fail. Its why I left but I did come back later these past few months because simply it was the best choice at the time for me.

    Moon mining done for the alliance was ass backwards. I am a pvp guy who doesn't know a great deal of moon mining but I could easily figure out that we were losing money on moons that should of been profiting after fuel cost. This took forever to get resolved.

    Let me go back to the PvP. I wanted to build whyso to be capable to being able to defend themselves. THis would of taken our pilots a huge amount of time for train for fleets that would better suit smaller numbers. What did Leadership decide? NOPE they wanted to go with tengus and piggy back Gypsy Band. The leadership never wanted to risk/put time into building an identity. When I asked why the hell we were flying rohks. Because nulli/nc. would fly rohks. Everything they did was half ass and the easy way. Their success was only on the coat tails of its allies.

    People got fed up with it and left.

      Dude, Those fucking alliance leaders were trash. Rots tried to stop it from collapsing every day and there were sum gud times yea but ultimatly shnooker was the biggest waste of breth and he never gave a shit he jus wanted to make money and get free stuff by making the corps pay for everything while they charged rent to live in space they didnt own. Its not enough to ignore the fact that u suck and ur alliance is failing but then you go and blame a strong corp for ur problems cuz u cant fix em urself.

Our spy network leaders forbid me from spilling exact details in here, but I will say that the guys in the WHYSO should just go ahead and let New Eden know. Let all these people think what they want. Just keep up the good work. And no,tNulli is not going to reset these guys. Nulli has no interest of resetting them.

    Would it be cruel of me to say i felt this article coming?!

    For a start, the run in WHYSO has been by my favorite run in any alliance. I come out saying, we used to form good fleets under decent Fleet Commanders and had fun doing it regardless of the welp. We started out as a pet under Gypsy Band and ended up as a stand alone alliance! However, it goes without saying that the leaving of BV, and the Czech/Slovakian enclave put the cover on the coffin, and this last month put the nails into it. Zervas leaving was a consequence of slowed progression, and we are still pretty happy today, however, you cant be a small alliance and expect to be as organized as Goons or Test their simply isnt very many things to organize! Fundamentally, you have to have fun in the game, and log on and get exactly what you want from it, and that is my reason for leaving better pastures or not, the pew pew must flow!!!!

    I find this article humorous coming from the leader of the small local alliance 'Infinite Aggression' that has been trying to poach members from Whyso and Whyso Franchise, myself and my corp included. Also humorous is; we have been contacted by IA as they still have assets in Whyso space from when they were given a place to stay and now have been reset for some strange reason following this article. Welp.

    So, meta TL;DR of this article:
    -Nearby alliance leader has been friendly with WHYSO corp CEOs trying to get a story and poaching members.
    -Writes partially-factual report on what is going on with Whyso and why an alliance is so serious, presumably because his article about journalism isn't completed yet, and he has a quota to make for his EN24 paycheck to support his alliance.

    I for one wish Zervas the best, and I will be keeping in contact with many of their awesome members. Good luck!

    As CEO of Zervas Aeronautics my first responcibility is to my Corpmates, pure and simple.

    Their well being and ability to have fun in this game is my chief responcibility. I do know Nino and I have spoken to him but I had no idea that he was a writer for or with this publication. Nino aproached me as an individual who was looking for a corp to recruit and I explained to him that the idea of joining another small Alliance would not be in the best interest of Zervas and its not because he doesn't represent a fine organization, because he does, it's because the bitter taste of the fiscal demands they put on us while they pocketed their own income from the renters was not an even exchange in the least. They never even thought to invest in the well being of their Alliance.

    First I need to stress the point that Zervas had nothing to do with the publishing of this article. Secondly I ask you why should we be butt hurt about WHYSO? We're proud of our service to their organization. Our corp was within the top 4% of the WHYSO killboard month after month. Our fleet represented 30% to 50% of their fleet formation.

    But as you can read from the comments above, WHYSO has to blame someone. Its amazing to me how much energy they put into blaming Zervas and how little energy they put into rebuilding themselves. Thats the perfect illustration as to why Zervas isn't there anymore.

    If there's anyone to blame for Zervas leaving WHYSO it should be directed at me and me alone. I'm their CEO and I made the decision to leave. I did it because I care for my guys and I won't let anyone take advantage of them. I won't stand by and let others attempt to use them. I'll fight for everyone of them and make sure they receive the respect they ALL deserve. I listen to their concerns, speak to them like individuals and the last thing I'll stand for is to see them treated like meat. My loyalty to my corp and it's people is beyond reproach. That's why I posted my name on this comment and didn't use a tag that you wouldn't recognize.

    All things being said, I wish WHYSO only the best and I hope these words pushes them to prove me wrong. I hope they turn around and do right by their people and rebuild to become a force in the South. I want to see them grow and be proud of our contribution to their beginnings not fade away and be seen as a waste of our time and effort. The blood we shed for them is important to me.

    Ok, thats my two cents. Oh yeah,.. did I mention that we're recruiting? Lol!

        To be honest I never even looked at your KB and it's not my intention to make this personal. So troll if you want to Rots it won't effect me at all.

        Besides when leadership asked my opinion in regards to you replacing ships out of your own pocket instead of WHYSO having it's own Ship Replacement Program I gave you props for that and told them that you should be commended. But did they commend you? Nope.

        They got pissed that you ended up going broke in the process and wound up having to borrow the ISK and when it was all said and done they ended up having to pay it back themselves. So once again we see a fine example of WHYSO being more interested in it's own pockets instead of the contributions of it's members.

        You're a good man, Rots and it's only a matter of time before you realize how badly you've been used.

        Oh yeah,.. did I mention to everyone out there reading this that we're recruiting?

      Why would WHYSO need to blame someone if it already has been verified that one of your guys provided the material for this half baked story? One could already figure without the information that this is told from a grunt's perspective and not a CEO's. So no need to circle jerk with me bro. You can pull that off with people that don't know what was going on internally. You can pull that off with people who weren't in WHYSO. But you can't pull that off with someone who was there even before you even joined up.

      When it comes down to fleets. Ok you dudes were there and you brought 'some' numbers. But let's just say this was a smaller percentage than you're saying. But when it comes down to being taken advantage of? Again let's not circle jerk here. You knew what you were sitting on and your members were able to enjoy it just as much as you. And being treated like meat? Well … Were they? From what I could tell they weren't. I can't help it that you nor your guys didn't make the approach of actually associating with your alliance like you really should. I can't help it that your dudes refused to sit in the same channels on comms, yes there are other channels than meeting rooms dudes.

      The reason why you guys aren't here anymore is just because you guys couldn't deal with leadership. And whenever your directorate didn't get what they want from leadership … Well the tantrums ensued. It was just too hard for your guys to swallow it that the final decision wasn't theirs. In all seriousness … They can go cry me a river knowing how your directorate looked down upon other corps their directorate. Especially the nonsense about leadership being said to people in WHYSO, totally uncalled for. Last and certaintly not the least … Let's not forget how some of your dudes went along with things, including yourself. That being said … You are conscious about these and you should know better than to use 'comments' as a perfect illustration why your corp isn't with us anymore.

      As for using names in a post / comment. This is my name dude. If you would've paid attention and knew the core of WHYSO you would know. So I'm not even hiding behind a toon's name. How that for an approach of loyalty huh? Two can play that game …

      Thank you for wishing us the best. We'll do our best as we always have. We've never stopped being the fuel for this engine to burn. Fortunately we have nothing to prove you wrong with. We've proven what we had to prove and we made a point. Where have you been the last few months huh? Anyone who paid the attention and has been there since the very beginning knows WHYSO has already proven it's point. We know, the core of WHYSO, what we were and what we turned out to be. So yea … People like me, dave, lance, etc etc etc already know. How come you don't? Your best contribution would be to just quit making WHYSO the black sheep for your own problems …

      Those are my final 2 cents ever being spent at someone playing the circle jerk game …

        Hi Fate,

        I think you should pay more attention to the article that you are reading. Its based on info anyone can surmise from basic DOT.LAND stats. And if a corp mate decided to give his opinion, well, I'm not going to chastise him for that. I'm not playing this game so that I can become a policeman and run around doing detective work.

        "The reason why you guys aren't here anymore is just because you guys couldn't deal with leadership."

        Really? Uh, maybe you didn't realize this but for a very brief time I was a part of leadership. I was the third man on the totem pole, so to speak, so I have some knowledge of where my decision to leave comes from.

        Let me be clear about the reason I made the decision to leave. This way, at least you can troll me properly from a fresh and better educated perspective.

        About two weeks ago I was in a meeting and leadership (Including myself) was debating the process of the Ship Replacement Program. I was informed that Rots had gone broke paying for ships out of his own pocket and ended up having to borrow from another member in order to continue doing this. I was asked if we (WHYSO) should go after Rots and demand that he pay the ISK back. My answer was "NO".

        20 MINUES LATER:
        We were discussing ships to give out to the winners of the weekly "Titty Tuesday" and "Thong Thursday" competition. (A competition held weekly where members post pictures of Tits and ass.) Here it was WHYSO couldn't put together a decent Ship Replacement Program for it's fleets which defend it's own sov but it could give away ships to the player who posted the best Titty pictures. And to add insult to injury, we actually got into an argument about this. Which ship to give away, the cost of the ship. Yadda yadda.

        Meanwhile our pilots had no resource if they lost a ship and the program that they put into effect was totally designed to work against the pilot himself.

        So when I walked out of that meeting I turned to my Directors and I said to them, "Guys, we're out of here."

        Hey, I like tits just as much as the next guy, sometimes, I actually dream about them. But I don't have to log onto Eve in order to see them.

        Oh yeah,.. did I mention to everyone out there reading this that we're recruiting?

          Here is the thing though, i never ran out of isk, i just saw that my model was not one used by bigger more outstanding alliances, theirfore i gave the program to peopel who had an interest in spreadsheets and industry organization. I also never borrowed any isk from the alliance, it was from a member of DOGGY who
          is a long time friend, and i used the money to produce income for the corp. IDK where the going after Rots thing comes from if you had been reading mails and listening for the last 2 months. Anyway, no harm done, all i can say is money was never used maliciously, and if you had your toon in the holding corp as every other CEO had rights to, you would see that.

            But the issue regarding the ISK borrowing and the ship replacement program was brought up to me directly by Schnook and Ach. That's how they explained it to me and asked for my opinion so I said it wasn't a big deal and to leave it alone. Plus I though it was commendable of you to go ahead and do that for the Alliance. Cheers on that one, man. If only everyone had been willing to work so hard for the collective there as you were.

    What I find funny is how Whyso is treating this. Rather than using this to their advantage (which it most certainly can be used) many are pointing fingers and being childish. Any press is good press, even bad!

    This has put Whyso in the spotlight, which seems to have actually been a boon for them. If you look at the Dotlan stats you will see they have actually started regaining members.

    The sad part is though that the players from Whyso I have talked to all seem to feel the same way though, that Whyso only cares about the ISK they can take from others and not what can be reinvested into the alliance. Something that the leadership has not commented about, which leads me to believe that it is either true or possibly leadership not being able to properly account for which is equally bad.

    I only hope that Whyso can learn from this and adjust how the leadership handles itself, cause unless the leadership can start seriously explaining what is going on, the boon they are gaining from this publicity will instead backfire as more and more start to pick at the details and find even more flaws which will only lead to ruin.

    On the part of Zervas they where the biggest corp in Why So but thay also where mostly noobies and wth them joining Tribal Band i think they joined more like minded corps there. In my eyes it was good for Why So to sheed the check corps as they where there on their own accord and was making a play to gain controll of the alliance and when they could't achive that they went all emo and left, good luck to Nulli having to deal with them.

    Also funny to see how RA are back paddeling after they realise that INK/WhySo/Darkspawn now fields over 300-400 man fleets between 3 alliances, while RA need to rely on their 30 other alliances to fill up a fleet. But their -A. ways of promising people the bears hide before the bear is hoot is just going to come back and bite them in the ass like it did with -A-;);)

And since no one but her knows the whole story behind the disbanding of said alliance, the stated comments are amusing. R-I-P members got a "serious" kick in the ass, a real butt hurt, but it didn't stop some of the asshole leadership from starting another alliance so they could do it all over again.

    Detorid is a cesspool of small alliances playing power games and beating upon each other in a completely misguided approach to self-preservation. Eve nullsec is about uniting for survival, not wasting time and precious pilot attention in playing unimportant sov games with people you should partner with.
