Erich Einstein > you are far off the gate log out...However, Anti-Ganking isn't known for its competence. No one ever accused them of being a well-oiled machine. Today, we'll take you inside the Anti-Ganking channel to document an actual case of Anti-Gankers showing up to a gank and trying to stop it. We don't need to ask the question, "Where was Anti-Ganking?" The second question, on the other hand, will be very much in play.
nate dogg > y u so far away dude????
Erich Einstein > maybe they wont get there in time
Erich Einstein > Throw out a cans so people can warp to you.
nate dogg > me?
Erich Einstein > na, the freighter
Alexander Kaan > anyone, really
nate dogg > looks like a trap 2 kill me lol this channel shady lolAnti-Gankers were alerted to a "bump in progress" in the Perimeter system. As usual, the rebels were disorganized and distrustful of one another.
XiaoMi Kurosaki > can out
Alexander Kaan > at least until the bumping gets it too far again
Erich Einstein > ganks already have plenty of members to warp in too. The can is so AG can get to you easier
nate dogg > sry im unsure wot 2 do lol
nate dogg > im in a t3 cruisers i cant replace.....
Banjo Snapper > bump the mach awayA freighter piloted by Banjo Snapper found itself repeatedly bumped by a Machariel. He urgently requested help from the Anti-Ganking channel. Since the bumping went on for a long time, there was ample opportunity for help to arrive. A small fleet of rebels gathered in Perimeter to save the freighter.
Banjo Snapper > block him from bumping me
Banjo Snapper > pls
Erich Einstein > shield and armor repair drones on the freighter. cheap fast locking ships to take out cats fast
Banjo Snapper > plsAt first, Banjo had been relieved to see so many would-be rescuers flocking to the scene. But as time went on, Banjo grew increasingly alarmed. Did these Anti-Gankers know what they were doing?
Banjo Snapper > everybody just ram the mach away from me
nate dogg > sry dude i dont want 2 b cannon fodder lol
Banjo Snapper > how cna you be cannon fodder
Banjo Snapper > just mwd into the mach
Banjo Snapper > if they shoot you they get concorded
nate dogg > i could b ganked 2 lol
Erich Einstein > the gank team will have short range blasters most likely, use something snipey and cheap and you will be fineMinutes ticked by and Banjo was no closer to escaping the Machariel bumps than before. The freighter pilot's pleas for help grew desperate.
Banjo Snapper > dude thewyre not gonna gank your t1 bs
Banjo Snapper > just block the damn mach
Banjo Snapper > please
Steamjunk > do we know what the freighter is carrying?Banjo watched the Anti-Gankers in disbelief. Why were they bringing frigates? Anti-Gankers don't need to worry about being CONCORDed. There was no risk. Banjo couldn't believe that the rescue team wasn't armed with more powerful ships.
Banjo Snapper > do we have rrigs on grid?
Banjo Snapper > *frigates?
Erich Einstein > I have a 500 dps cat on grid
Alexander Kaan > probably won't save you but it's worth trying
Erich Einstein > good job on the ibis... that was the warpin shipTo prevent Banjo from simply logging off to escape the Machariel bumps, one of the gankers sent a rookie ship to aggress Banjo's freighter. It's a common tactic that's been around for many years, yet it caused some confusion among the Anti-Gankers.
Alexander Kaan > no, they used it to aggress the freighter
Alexander Kaan > so he can't logoff
Alexander Kaan > it got concorded
Erich Einstein > It wont help now
Alexander Kaan > it already helped
Alexander Kaan > it gave freighter a 15 min timer
Steamjunk > try having him set speed to zero, do not try to warp or alignAt last, the moment arrived. A massive gank fleet with 18 Taloses came out of warp next to the freighter. Time for the Anti-Gankers to work their magic!
Steamjunk > when i bump into freighters doing that on the jita undock, they dont go far, its a weirdness of eve physics
Alexander Kaan > gank fleet on grid
Alexander Kaan > get away from zero unless you want to die
Steamjunk > lot of talos, he must be carrying a ton
Erich Einstein > sorry man, you dont have enough supportBefore the freighter even went halfway into structure, the Anti-Gankers were busy making recriminations and shifting the blame for their failure. In this, at least, the Anti-Gankers were well trained.
Alexander Kaan > I told him what to do but he insists webbing himself
Alexander Kaan > instead of doing osmething more useful with his alt
Maximilien Robespierre Patrouette > You can't fix stupid Alex.
Banjo, who belonged to the ironically named Highsec Pubbie Stomping Grounds corp, lost his 23.6 billion isk freighter. As he contemplated moving forward in EVE without his stuff, Banjo looked at the Anti-Ganking chat and snapped.
Banjo Snapper > thought youd actually have a clue what youre doing considering itsa the channels entire purposeLike all other carebears in his situation, Banjo had to face reality and see the Anti-Gankers for what they really were. He let them have it.
Banjo Snapper > instead jusat a bunch of useless retarded sitting on me at zero in vigils and shittles
Banjo Snapper > gj boys
Banjo Snapper > gr8 help
Alexander Kaan > it could help if you could follow some basic instructionsAs usual, the rebels made each other miserable. Anti-Ganking was as toxic as ever.
Alexander Kaan > instead of ignoring my tips
Alexander Kaan > also, we don't owe you anything
Alexander Kaan > and you calling us retards makes me think you are better off as a wreck
Maximilien Robespierre Patrouette > Instead of just bitching Banjo Snapper, did you bother to follow any instructions Alexander Kaan gave?Suddenly, the argument was interrupted by additional combat occurring on the grid. One Anti-Ganker started shooting another by mistake.
Erich Einstein > dude you are attacking me
Erich Einstein > Alexander Kaan really man
Alexander Kaan > sorry dude, not sure what you were doing
Alexander Kaan > why suspect?The only rational course of action for both freighter and Anti-Ganker alike: Embrace the Code. Otherwise, they must be condemned to an eternity of nothing but failure.
Erich Einstein > picking up ganker loot so they cant get it
Alexander Kaan > ganker loot is BLUE
Alexander Kaan > unless you are trying to loot the 20B in the freighter, which won't probably fit in a catalyst's cargo
Erich Einstein > thats why ag wont ever amount to nothing
