A post on the C&P (Crime & Punishment) sub-forum today started out with a rather vague claim of the Goons scamming someone out of 80 billion isk (360 million for 30 days play time = ~$3,333). Many people were very skeptical, with good reason, who would try to buy a Titan (Erebus) and get scammed out of 80 billion isk? You would think one who could acquire such money wouldn’t fall for a trick, much less trust the Goons to do it. But a little further down we get a screenshot from the scammee, he was asked to take a screenshot of his wallet and send it to them to prove that he had sent his money to The Mittani (goon leader, well known scammer guy) because “unfortunately Mittani is afk right now”. A little further and we see the scammer receiving his portion from Mittani in his wallet, a nice 69 billion.
The post is here.
All I’m tryin to get is a measly 360 million for fuckin 30 days of play time. I’ve got much closer to half than I did yesterday due to cashing in my Loyalty Points for Alpha Nexus Chips and sellin em to my corp for 6 mil a pop, got 4. Yet every friggin day theres another story of someone being a dick and getting like a shit ton of money that I want. Really want to start being a dick, makin that money.
Hello good sirs, it is I, your dearest Bonedead. Returned to delight you with yet another wonderful post about gaming…. and me.
Not sure where I last left off, I think I was playing DAoC? Uthgard, right? Well, it is still installed but I haven’t played it in over a week. I have been playing a healthy amount of drunken cs (one of my favorite games btw). I also try and get my arenas in for WoW each week on my DK (friend got a pally to 85 so huzzah for 2s). But most of my time has been spent in a good ol game that I, thanks to many others before me, like to call Internet Spaceships.
Yes, friends, EVE online. I don’t have anything exciting to report on yet, we’re still just getting our bearings and figuring out wtf we want to even do. We did lose my friends big ol BC ship in a wormhole due to collapsing it right in front of him 😦 Bad luck. We were mining Arkonor in there, 5k isk a unit, we were going to get 5k units from the asteroid, so 25 million for a little mining, awesome right? Would have been, but it wasn’t. As I hopped through on my mining ship to go get my hauler, the worm hole closed, trapping my friend inside (along with a shit fuckload of arkonor). I find one of my main goals being, acquire enough isk to buy a plex, so I can make more isk, buy moar plex, and never fuckin pay for an mmo ever again cus I don’t have to. I am almost close to halfway, but, most of that was earned last year when I played.
I’ve had the urge to be a meany, quite strongly in fact, and it is a thought I am entertaining quite a bit. We shall see though.
