Feeding a Troll, but just a little

So the game that I have decided to return to with a free trial is EVE Online. Surprise! I wanted to make a miner, go into industry, make items as well as money. So what does a beginning businessman in EVE do? Mine of course! I have been doing the Industry quests or whatever they would be called and the next one on my list requires some different ore than I’ve been finding. So I had to go elsewhere and find some. I was able to discover a Scordite asteroid which, when refined, gives Tritanium and Pyerite. Nearby was a Plagioclase asteroid which when refined produces Pyerite and Mexallon. I can get plenty of Tritanium from Veldspar (which is everywhere) but the Pyerite and Mexallon I had not found before and were the other ingredients needed for my next quest (I mean mission).

So, upon this realization that Plagioclase offers me more of each than Scordite, I jettisoned the Scordite from my cargo so I can hold more Plagioclase and knock out my required mats in one trip. Well, I decided to return for some more for some reason, I wasn’t even sure which Asteroid Belt I was previously at, so I chose the 4th one and voila, lucky guess!

At this point I noticed on my Overview that there was an orange named player, he had a small skull on his icon, so I was a bit on edge. Then I saw my cargo container (when you jettison something into space, it is placed in a cargo container) and guess who was right next to it? This orange named player was of course! Soon after my cargo container’s name was changed to “hahaha i took your stuff”. I was throwing the Scordite away, it didn’t matter to me, but for some reason I wanted to try and fight this guy. I knew that I could attack him and assumed that the orange name meant that. Outside of the major space stations you will see containers called “free stuff” yet when you go to loot them it says that the owner and his corporation will be able to attack you. I had my 2 gun slots equipped with Mining lasers, so if I wanted to attack this guy I would have to go back to my original space station (I was one system away), dock, unequip a mining laser and equip my newb gun.

I thought about this for a second and realized, this is what he wants me to do. So instead I decided to spend 3k ISK per email and have a little conversation with “Captain Riddic”. The subject of the email was “haha” because I thought it was fitting considering he had renamed my garbage container hahaha (I missed a ha, doh). Without further ado:

You are yet but a noob.
You do not understand why i use such a small and weak ship.
If set up right i can take on much larger ships.
Also cause i have better skills.

I don’t know shit about your ship actually, I didn’t inspect you or anything. If I did, I wouldn’t know what I was looking at. I’ve just played practically every MMO and I know your type.

Says the guy who has “better skills” than those who use battle cruisers in the game with one of the steepest learning curves. Good job Vin Diesel.

It does not matter the size of the ship but the skills you have to use your ship. At that i dont play 24/7 cause i have a life.

Ahh, the ol’, I have a life defense. It is a shame that the troll world hasn’t evolved much over the years.
Looking at the “EVE epeen online” website, I found Captain Riddic’s little page. Man, he seems really good, huh?
