Sic Semper Tyrannus

State motto of Virginia…translated: “Thus always to tyrants.” co-opted yes, but still a decent title I suspect.

One man throws a switch ( perhaps steals everything) and applause ensues.

If your late to the party..Khartoon got back and pulled the plug on the Alliance. Poof Bye Bye. All gone.

Wow, simply wow.  Emo-rage from the goon leader ? Too tired of dealing with all the crap?

Who knows.

A less than desirable end if you’re a former goon, and Even less desirable end if you had assets with them ( reportedly to be upwards of 360-400 Billion In CASH, much less assets. Last report.. 1 Trillion + in assets?

The single greatest one day loss of assets period.


Fair winds and following seas all.

  1. Karttoon claimed on Something Awful to have been planning to pull this for a while, and says that was the real reason the ISK was in the wrong wallet and the financial roles were so restricted. If that's the case, then it means that the only times people have been kicked out of Delve is through leadership betrayal, which doesn't speak well for CCP balance.

    I suspect, however, that in the long term this will be good news for Goons, who were essentially stagnating and getting fat and lazy in Delve/Querious/Period Basis. There was basically zero chance of GoonSwarm really attacking anyone while seated there, but now all bets are off. We're less of a short-term threat (homeless and broke), but those problems are solvable in a few short months.

  2. You obviously don’t get goons.

    This is a somewhat tired meme.

    Something Awful is an association of some 95,000 individuals with a culture that promotes and celebrates diversity. We don't all think alike (I'm a member).

    Eve goons split into three camps:
    1) the people who are openly upset and talking about it.
    2) the cynics who think it's hilarious and are enjoying the schadenfreude.
    3) people who would be in category 1) but realise that admitting they're upset will get them mocked mercilessly both by goons and by people who oppose goons.

    Obviously it's clever propaganda to tell everyone that all SA members are in category 2) but I really doubt it's true. I suspect that 3) is actually the majority position and that most 2) goons actually let their subs lapse when the Swarm settled in to being space emperors on a longterm basis.

  3. "A less than desirable end if you’re a former goon…"

    You obviously don't get goons.

  4. Wow.

    But not all gone literally. He still holds the remnants of the alliance, and the goonfleet, goonswarm, and bob names. With all that isk and assets, goonswarm could rise again.

    But he'll have a huge target on his back from now on.

    Sure does redraw the political landscape in a hurry.
