Mercs thumb their noses at GoonSwarm (Updated)



Perhaps there were words spoken from the bliss of alcohol, but news out of Mordu's Trials where countless corporations are currently training, seems to imply that several newer corporations have it out for the Goonswarm.



Sources are pointing to a private bar where arguments over the merits of Goon tactics, history and effectiveness was said to have taken place. Here's a link for those with access to secure channels. Link

The basic premise by a group of elite mercs seems to imply that the Goons dominate with scores of below average soldiers and that somehow their victories mean less because they do so. While this line of thinking lacks a great deal of logic, they also seemed to imply that other large Alliances like these could in no way compete with them and that even hiring assassins to murder them would fail. Mercenaries like Protoman, Pdiggy22, Onslaught, Wicked, Phantom Humperdink and Mudmaster ordered drink after drink while ridiculing the goons for the better part of 2 hours.

One corp representative had this to say: "Any respect these Mercs had is now gone. Due to their love of alcohol and the usual immature boasting (it makes them look like kids) but they have no clue, and as I type this trust me several powerful corps are plotting against them."

While this line of thinking reminds some of the Spartans at the battle of Thermopylae, it begs an answer: Are these soldiers elite enough to back up their threats? Have they accounted for the massive fleets these groups can bring to bear? Only time will tell.

We reached out to the Goonswarm leader but The Mittani had no response as of press time.

Update: The Mittani's later response was:  "I think some Mercs types are used to chatter mattering more than bottom-line victory; the game is not played that way. i.e. in New Eden you can whine about a "bad rep" all you want, but Sov is Sov, and lasting consequences are inarguable."

    1. its common knowledge that we never mention the game. All our quotes fit into that context. we did the same up above. we also retweeted his exact words for all to see.

  12. Oh, so you're bored and you're trying to manufacture idiots rambling into a drama fest when there's nothing actually going on. Why does this remind me of Fox News?

    1. No need for the potty mouth. we got reports that Mudmaster was SYN, if thats wrong we'll gladly edit.

      Delete
    2. edit it after u already got the responses u wanted? sure seems legit.
      Think a public apology is in order if u want to save what little credibility this blog has. As for your "friends" who are feeding u info, the least they could do is wait for me to slip up myself instead of resorting to fabrication.

      Next time u need verification on anything SyN related DM me on twitter, dont ask for my email because u wont get it. Sorry. I follow u , u follow me so DM me on twitter.

  19. Guys leave Harmon alone. He's acted same as he did during Mag... He's actually doing more good than you think. Just keep the QW to yourselves

  20. There are some immature maggots out there for sure, but still best console fps gaming community. And the solid, decent, cool, non-forum going maggots, will dominate in Dust.

    ReplyDelete
  21. He has done nothing for MAG. He threatens people if they don't interview him.

    If he was helping mag, he would not post anything about MAG/EVE relations.

    He is clearly trying to cause problems for the clans he is outing.

    1. Oh come on. No one on the team here threatens anyone. If people choose not to be interviewed we respect their wishes. We're not trying to cause problems for anyone. A source alerted us to a controversial thread that had been locked and we reported on it.

      Delete
    2. I'll back this up, Harmon has asked to interview me on two occasions, I declined both times and he could've been a bit nicer about it, but all he's doing is using time honored journalist practices. If you don't have a pair of big boy pants it's not his fault.

    3. FACT: he messed up and wrongfully posted 2 clans as the chief architects behind this reported thread and it was wrong. There was ONE person from G|C there he named and not a single one from mine yet my logo was put up there. Sure he took it down but at that point it did not matter as he already got what he wanted and that was for GoonSwarms leader to take notice of it.

      The mere fact that this blog hasnt had the DECENCY to at least issue a public statement on the fck up shows me that this is all part of a slander campaign which is why i stay away from doing anything with this blog. Confirm or deny members of my clan? sure i can do that. Interviews? hell no.

      Its been 2 days now and still not a public statement to admitting and correcting the mistake. He still has G|C logo up there as well smh. Look how quickly he posted Mittens "update" but cant even issue a statement admitting wrong lol.

      PS: lol @ poster saying doing good. that was funny. best comment yet.

    Holy shit. that battle of Thermopylae things is so wrong! The Spartans never threated the Persians the Persians were invading and the Greek alliance had to try to stop them at Thermopylae. The Spartans did not want the Persians to invade nor did the Persians want to fight the Spartans in the first place the Persians had a feud with the Athenians.
