Tales from the Minmatar Front Part 2: "My Ally is the Force"

FIRST GENERAL recently wrote a response to one of my recent posts. Due to some new commenting rules I’m serious about enforcing, I did not allow the link to show up in the comments. However, you can find his post here.

Some of you may be getting a little bored with the back and forth, as on some issues it seems to go in circles. Maybe this is due to misunderstanding. Maybe it has to do with language or culture. I don’t know.

But, to keep from boring everyone (and myself) by restating many points I’ve already made, I decided to bring in a fresh perspective by asking myself a serious question…

What would Yoda say?

“Personal attacks on the author show nothing but your lack of arguments to support your own point of view.” (FIRST GENERAL)
I feel much anger in him.

“[…] one of the Amarr Carriers the hostiles were afraid to lose and tipped of Raiden […]Raiden who at that time was only one Cyno away from Ardar jumped in and killed all forces on the field, hostiles and Amarr forces alike. – I was there .”
Hot dropped you were. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side.

“[...] As such, the fight as a whole was hotdropped, and not only the Amarr.”
Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those who transform into the Force.

“As for the information you pulled from your battlereport and listed up, that information is inaccurate as far as the capital kills/losses are concerned…”
Amarr battlereport it was. Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size do you?

“ There were 2 Amarr FC’s who FC’ed that fleet and me being one of them, I can assure you neither the other one nor myself were laughing.”
Laugh you should. Funny it was.

“I do find the irony of this statement quite striking. You feel you need to lecture me about the merits and information that can be pulled from battlereports yet you somehow do not manage to find evidence of the existence of the Minmatar Supercarriers on your killboard? “
Lost a supercarrier, Susan has. How embarrassing…how embarrassing.
Go to the center of the gravity’s pull, and find your supercarrier you will.

“[…] however i suggest you refrain from personal insults if you want your average reader to take serious what you have to say.”
Much to learn, you still have.

 “[…] i was told […] that the minmatar fleet was in fact a mess and that they needed to be generally more organized which is further evidence that you will team up with anyone you can find to try to annihilate Amarr fleets…”
No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.

 “[…]If it looks like the Amarr will get ganked by a much larger minmatar force then they will arrange backup.”
If no mistake have you made, yet losing you are…a different game you should play.
Control, control. You must learn control.

“As for your response to my post, take some of my criticisms to heart…”
Meditate on this, I will.

“ I’m not beyond criticism myself; poor syntax, mediocre grammar as well as the use of (or rather lack thereof) colorful adjectives. Maybe you could give me lessons in the latter?”
Remember, a Jedi’a strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

Tales from the Minmatar Front Part 1: The Response
FIRST GENERAL's Response to the Response


  1. That's actually a funny response and it made me laugh ;)

    May the force be with you too Susan Black.


  2. “According to the battle report the Amarr lost 2 Archons, a Phoenix, a Revelation, a Thanatos, a Nidhogger a Loki…. Before being pwned by the supercaps, they managed to kill several capitals themselves, including 2 Phoenix, 2 Nags, and a Thanatos.”

    “In reference to the information about what was lost and killed. I pulled my information directly from killmails on the (Amarr) battlereport…as I stated I did. I realize that killmails can be forged….”

    “Amarr battlereport it was. Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size do you?”

    So let me walk you through this:

    Open the battlereport linked above and look at it closely. On the left hand side are Amarr losses: 1 Phoenix, 1 Revelation, 1 Archon, 1 Thanatos. (no second Archon, no Nidhogger, no Loki)

    On the right hand side are the kills: 2 Naglfar, 2 phoenix, 1 Archon, 1 Nidhogger, 1 Thanatos, 1 Loki

    I seem to remember some glitches with this Battlereport at first, with some kills appearing on the wrong side of the report (this is a known problem)

    So you do not look like an Ass in the future and so you don’t try and make Yoda look like an Ass to (way more important). When you check Battlereports, look at the pretty pictures as much as you want but then read who that pretty picture belongs to. If it belongs to the opposing force but it is on our side of the Battlereport. It probably isn’t ours.

  3. As FG said, funny. But you also kind of made his point for him. I wonder if this is too critical and will be deleted?

  4. How strange, yet mildly funny. However I must agree that it seems like a forefit to the points that FG has made. Glad to see admission of guilt and that pride hasn't gotten in the way.
