I've often commented about not understanding smack talk and the methods behind it. I've been told that people get angry and do stupid things. Some enjoy getting people worked up and ranting and frothing at the mouth. It will be my eternal question forever asked and never answered.
I was chatting with Diz before bed when he went, "LOL. The bombers bar sent me a tear collection mail because I engaged them on a gate and died. Maybe I should send them one back for the ships I killed before they killed my interceptor and pod."
I read said survey mail. I guess it is amusing.
Everyone is there to fight. Everyone is running head first into the mass of people to try to get battle. Everyone is there to kill and everyone is there to die. Third parties. Fourth. Fifth. Eight. The entire point is a head first dive into a pit of raw frenzy. I need to try it one day. At least once to say that I did.
And what is losing a ship in Eve? These days it is just part of the game. I know that people get upset. Greatly upset. There is a lot invested in the ship. Pride. Time. Energy. Dreams and hopes. I know that for some the loss of the ship is the loss of the game. But that isn't everyone. There are few things I love hearing more then, "That's the price of getting work done," when someone loses a ship because they went out and got into the fight.
But everyone isn't my social circle. I'm seeped in it and I know. I probably ask too much. I'll blame it on my head cold. It is making me irrational. Back to bed.
