The Numbers Game
The ship thing: Im not moaning about it, some of the guys use non-minmatar ships, alot of the guys use just minmatar ships. This is a choice, its not forced upon us you are correct, but it works better from an RP angle, and it just feels 'right' (at least for me). Most of the fleets i fly in consist of 80% minmatar ships. But, just because its a choice, doesnt mean we cant get on CCP's back about making them better so we can fight with them more effectively. We love our matari ships, we want to fight with them. Alot of the guys get fraustrated that our ships seem to be lost in a haze of CCP not knowing what to do with them despite everyones suggestions. No one wants to get to the point of us all flying other races ships, hell, even golden ones.
This, obiviously, aint your fault is it. Just sometimes the fraustrations may spill over. Thats all. So if you see us moaning on about our ships on the forums, bear all this in mind. Im sure if your ships were nerfed (as i think they were in the past) you would reserve your right to try to make them better, or at least combat worthy.
Makkar does not speak for the whole alliance, no one does. A point i tried to make in my earlier statements. The fact remains however that previous events have ended up causing lots of hassle, due to percieved breaches of rules, or what have you. But there is discussion on this i believe, you again, are writing off everyone based on one persons actions. But we are VERY busy with other events at the moment, which may be the reason for the lack of forum response. You should have just got in touch with some of us in game. And i reccomend you do in the future.
SMAK: Any issues with smak should be taken directly to them. I have never had any problems with the pilots I have flown with from them, and if you guys do, then i really suggest you go to talk to tehm about it.
Ushra'Khan is not the CVA, we are not ruled with iron fists, we celebrate our differences. Hence, why i ask you to contact the corp involved.

Part of this is who we're playing. We're the "arrogant Amarrians" who refuse to believe anything but we're superior and there is no Matari space. We not only claim the space belongs to us but you do as well (as individuals). As I recall those posts were in the context of that RP and not a bait attack on "where are the Minmatar". If someone posted "Where are the Minnies they're off in the Great Wildlands while we harvest herds of slaves from their soil" I'd jump on that as well.
God i write here more than the Amarrians! But what your essentially saying there is that its ok for your chaps to say they can roam about our skies as they wish and theres no Matari to be seen, cos its part of your roleplay. But we cant?
Now im not saying that the post that was done is correct. But for example, if we roleplay a post saying that we had spent an afternoon in Amarr and no CVA were there to defend it, we could, seeing as you declare to be defenders of the empire, post that we can roam your skies freely.
So, it looks like double standards? Im not getting aggresive anyone, im just trying to point things out

No I'm saying when we claim to "run thru your space" dont take it personally its our RP persona. You guys are supposed to be terrorists who are "rebels". As part of that RP persona it isn't you who is supposed to be "waltzing thru" your supposed to be 'sneaky'.
I compare our roles to Star Wars... we're the "empire" (big, bulky, arrogant) and you guys are the "rebels" (sly, sneaky, big hearts).
(PS I agree these new forums are confusing for me too).

Get some amarr lurvin, Dusty can show you the way
Arch chill... Mak slams everyone around that way... and i can be just as bad. One of the reasons i got to be a council member was that we could work together instead of battering each others comments to pieces Call it extreme critical assesment based on previous experience. All previous rp events have resulted in major bragging rights for the amarrians... and quite frankly it's boring in a 1 v 1 situation if an amarrian and minnie have the same skills sets (switching proj for lasers) and combat ship setups... we'd lose unless we managed some fluke... autocannons barely go 30km and do REALLY crap damage if we start a fight were we charged at each other from 60km apart using our shortest range guns the minnie would be dead before 30km. So why expand so you have a bigger but equal sized fleets?
If you guys want to have an event then do it, if we want to join in we will... nothing stops us from doing so if we really wanted. And the GW event is something that was hid from everyone bar the highest members of the alliance (bar a slip up i had to correct on the forum) it's the biggest turn out we've had (alliance only)... 63 in gang out of about 69 in the alliance at the time, which is damn impressive if you ask me. We didn't know if there was gonna be fighting or not everything was on edge and was excellent time
