What happened to "Test will fight to the last Rifter"? And how can you say that "if Test was an in infant, I would abort it"?

There is a difference between being direct and insulting. And apparently there are corps which are kinda "gay"? Who the $#@& is this guy?

What I have come to learn in my young time as being a manager is that people often behave according to the environment they are in. In an environment which encourages people to be their best and supports them to be their best, then no suprise , people really become as best as they can be.

In an environment where people are walking on eggshells, people usually become withdrawn. This had been proven in every peer reviewed Sociocultural papers published. And it's as true whether you are leading a Quality Assurance department as I am, leading a country where people have to be behind you to move the nation forward, or leading a community of players in an MMO.

From an outsiders view, the rattles in leadership in the alliance have everyone on edge. The recent loss of Fountain from fighting an enemy who outfoxed and out-doctrined TEST has put a major damper on the moral, and speeches like that are not helping. ( Im not part of TEST and even I'm annoyed by it ).

At the end of the day its just a game. But yes maybe there are areas in the alliance which need tweaking. That I dont dispute. But I do caution the method used for that tweaking. It should not cause more harm than good.

Srsly, bro, real life =/= Eve. Here is some facts about TEST:

--Some corps are gay.
--Some people are fucks.
--If TEST was a fetus, I would be the first one with a coathanger.


There is a difference between being direct and insulting. And apparently there are corps which are kinda "gay"? Who the $#@& is this guy?


This isn't a business environment. Some corps are a gay, with a bunch of fucks in them. They've not earned the respect necessary to waste time describing their inadequacies.


In an environment where people are walking on eggshells, people usually become withdrawn. This had been proven in every peer reviewed Sociocultural papers published. And it's as true whether you are leading a Quality Assurance department as I am, leading a country where people have to be behind you to move the nation forward, or leading a community of players in an MMO.


I've actually read resumes where people count "leading game communities" as a plus. I throw those out, because it indicates that they're under some sort of delusion that videogames are equitable with a business environment. And they are very clearly not. Ditto for "I captain my weekend softball team." Nobody loses their fucking job if you lose the game with your shitty coaching, and coaching terrible softball teams pays significantly less than going to work and operating a money machine.


From an outsiders view, the rattles in leadership in the alliance have everyone on edge. The recent loss of Fountain from fighting an enemy who outfoxed and out-doctrined TEST has put a major damper on the moral, and speeches like that are not helping. ( Im not part of TEST and even I'm annoyed by it ).


On what fucking planet? TEST was defeated because:

(1) About a year ago, somebody said "We don't need a supercapital fleet, we'll always be friends with Goons/PL/etc."
(2) About six weeks ago, somebody said, "Time all those structures so our predominantly AUTZ allies who are bringing all the supers can help." Thus burning out every FC worth a shit.
(3) About four weeks ago, those AUTZ allies had to go fight somewhere else.
(4) About four weeks ago, nobody said, "Stop timing structures for AU and move them back to late EU/early US."
(5) About four weeks ago, Goons were able to go full-helicopterdick on all of Fountain, while indiscriminately dropping dreads on whatever subcap fleet or structure they felt like.

Five easy steps to losing a fucking region.

Now, the second part. The speeches probably offend you because you're not a part of TEST, nor of TEST culture. And by "TEST culture", I mean the part about being crass with InternetWords, not these recent retards who think being in TEST means it's okay to be a complete mouthbreathing Mongoloid fuck who takes 45 minutes to get their shit together for a doctrine fleet.

I feel free to call these wastes of life and bandwidth mouthbreathing Mongoloid fucks because (a) this is not a business environment, and (b) they are impeding my bros from having the Eve experience they deserve. So I will continue to call them mouthbreathing Mongoloid fucks, and I'll continue to roll with my bros.

The opinions reflected in the above poast do not matter. The poaster in question is, in fact, a pubbie sperglord dirty wanker who is currently using his time away from EVE to vigorously pump at the shaft of his *squee* until *squee* comes shooting out all over ______________'s face.

This isn't mad, just what happens when I stop trying to be a constructive semi-staff dude and start trying to be an offensive shitpoaster.

I think I'm going to post on the internal discussion this afternoon, should be good stuff.

TEST did have super capital pilots. I think most of them are in PL now.
