I really like _________________
All this hatred, vitrol, anger, despair. God its enough to make someone quit Eve.
So how about a little positive gameplay here? If you like someone IC or something they did or do post it here.
I like Khaldorn Murino because he's so passionate about slavery. In the SPCS thread on Galnet he damned us to hell for being so evil. He said we're "sick people". It was a great RP moment and made me laugh!
I like Hakera because he's kind of an old wise man character to me. I think of Yoda when I see Hakera .... he has all the answers.
I like Cosmopolite because I get the feeling he's kind of my opposite number there. Kind of level headed, passionate but seeing the big picture, a stablizing force.
I like Discorporation because he's the master of the witty one liner and he's usually right. I dont know theres just something about him I find "pleasant" in an Amarrian sort of way.
I like Derran who used to be UK but left I think. He was always good for RP in local chat even emoting /gritting teeth and stuff like that.
Thats just a short list. There are many more I'll add soon.
I really like people who are passionate about what they do, skill and talent can only do so much, but when someone really believes in what they do/say/think, it will overshadow even the most sharply written speech.
I really like PIE, they are all that I hoped for. Even with my ambigous involvement with Metatron's pusedo-subvertionist plot, they have accepted me whole heartedly. Hell, even Hardin donated cash for me to get a new Maller when I stupidly lost it to NPC rats. I am more than happy to do anything for this corporation. I belong here.
I like the U'K, dispite many OOC cold comments and silly stubborn discusstions, they are what the Minmatar are now. I may sometimes wish Oracle was still around, god bless it, but I have respect for the U'K for going back to the roots and continuing the good fight against us ebil slavers. No-one else I'd rather fight.
I Disco. I remember berating/cheering for him during the Amarr championship. Those were the best of times.
I hate Archbishop...
I like gauis becuase hes a great laugh and always is out to get me on IGS....inquisiotn 4tw
I also liek Arch becuase he helps me with video ooc and hes agood laugh IC especillay his long sermon in local...
I also like Alexander Rahl mainly because im his number 1 terrorist...
i also like....ethi because ethi si always up for a fight....
so many more....
I like big butts and I cannot lie, you other brothers can't deny... und so weiter.
Disclaimer: I don't really like big butts... but it's spring and my hormonic harmonies are off the charts.
I like Gaius Kador. Where do I begin? Back in the winter of '03-'04, I could entertain myself for hours reading his IC posts. He's the reason Russo and I got involved in all this mess. His spirit was in Blacksheep, is still in AmAx, and is now in Aeternus Crusade. Killer pilot...God, what a killer instinct
I like Golan because nobody can touch his in-character presence. The terse, arrogant, bold-lettered posts; the cold-blooded willingness to brush aside anyone in service to the Emperor...it's just awesome. I can HEAR the Imperial March when I read about him. And no offense to any other PIE command I've flown under...but he's the best fleet tactician, period. Oh, and I'll never forget the sound of his voice on ventrillo...totally awesome.
I like Hardin 'cause if I ever want an honest opinion, he'll give it straight to me. This kind of goes back to the darker days of AmAx falling out of grace with PIE: if I ever wanted an acid test of how bad things really were, I could just ask Hardin. (others seemed to hold back, I guess 'cause I was a "nice guy.") He's also a talented writer, a clever PR representative, and Siobhan is just sexy.
I like Archbishop. Videos. Need I really say more? His artistic eye...and ear. I'm a (hack) musician, so music is important to me. I'm always moved by the sound-tracks he uses in his videos. He's also just a darn good guy.
I like Gaven Lok'ri. I don't think I ever here better over-all rationalle and just good sense than from him.
I like Annu 'cause he's just a fun/funny enemy to fly against. He and I have had great out of character banter since the old days of Blacksheep, and we've been mates ever since. He's a tenacious pilot, got a sharp wit, and he's just out to have a great time.
I like Khaldorn. Pure hot-blooded passion in combat. I'm sure we all have stories of this, but I remember a particular engagement where I didn't have him scrambled, and he had a good 30 seconds to run but didn't. He stayed and lost...he is always IC, even with his combat. What warrior worth his name will run from a duel, even if he's losing? I've been reading his fictions on the UK forums as well. Very nice.
I like Hakera 'cause he's a friggin' fount of knowledge. I don't think we ever see eye-to-eye on tactics, but if I ever need game mechanics trivia, he's the one. After which I throw all the common sense he delivers to me out the window and develop some hair-brained idea...
I like Maggot and Zoolkhan. Old enemies. Venerable. Quietly awesome. (I don't know if that makes any sense.) I probably hold these guys in the highest regard of any of my enemies in terms of pure respect.
I like Russo. You knew I was getting around to it. Master of the unconventional, and the other half of my brain in combat. I always feel like we can take on entire fleets when we fly together. He's crazy, he's loud...but damn is he good. Always working on new ways to take out more with less. He's my wingman in-game, and when we were stationed together he was my wingman in the real world as well. He'll always be mustunderstood...but he'll always be Russo.
Oh. And I like blasters. And antimatter. A lot.
I really like pie....
You bastard Garreck, you forgot me!
I've got another big one. I really like Imperial Dreams. Ah to be in an industrial based corp like that.........
Still PIE I'm not going anywhere. Your stuck with me.
I really like the fact that Arch seems to have been on the funny fags today
I really like the CVAs dedication to their RP
I really like the efforts of SF etc to stir up the pot again
I really like Al leading fleets on TS, never have so much fun
oh and khal rocks as well
I you all!
Don't wanna name names 'coz I'll just forget someone, so I'll just say thanks to everyone for making Galnet what it is
QUOTE (kalorn @ Apr 12 2005, 07:17 PM)You bastard Garreck, you forgot me!
I forgot a lot of folks. Not to worry...that felt so good I'm gonna continue!
I like Ka'lorn/Phoenus. This guy is always happy. He's a pretty darn good pilot as well. And we have had a lot of really great ooc conversations...he puts up with my random desires for online chatting. Even if I interupt him when he's playing counterstrike or whatever.
I like Light Kominski. I've always viewed him as my counterpart in PIE...calm, polite, reserved...but surprisingly tenacious when you get him in combat. He's also been good for real life counsel when I need it. I've not had a chance to speak with him in a while, 'cause rl has him quite busy from what I understand, but he's been a good friend nonetheless.
I like Graelyn. He took me into Aeternus Crusade and gave me a second chance at Eve as it were. We think on much the same wavelength, which should really do the Crusade a lot of good as it continues to grow. He's former USAF, so we swap stories, and he knows what I'm talking about when I throw a paragraph of acronyms at him, haha!
I like Riya Onisenshi. This young lady has been my eyes in combat. She's calm, observant...knows what to tell me and what to leave out. She doesn't hold back her opinion, but she's got a great (very dry) sense of humor. I love her killer instinct and sharp mind. Ideal woman. I try not to hit on her too much, though. Not good for combat discipline.
I like Rain Ocampo. I thought I was gonna cry when Rain said she wanted to sign up with the Crusade. Wonderful interceptor pilot...the best I've flow with, I'm sure. Old veteran from blacksheep/AmAx, she (he, really) went on to learn the ways of 0.0. Found out that us Empire pilots were not only more fun to fly with/against, but that we're better as well. Oh, and financed my Deimos. Major plus.
I like CCP. They gave us Eve...and what else would I have to rant (good or bad) about if it weren't for Eve? I'd be just a boring lump of apathy.
I like thoraxes. Blasters and antimatter are just deadweight without a proper platform.
I PLUMP FORGOT!
I Graelyn, bud, you're #1.
Bunch of slaver fags. But hell if i have to do this then so be it
Gaius Kador. Everything a evil slaver should be, always IC when he should be, doesnt hold back and I love that, and is perfectly civil OOC.
Hardin. Ahh the ole hardinator, where would the summit be without his outright lies .. ahem.. propoganda and spheil. We all love hardin, keeps us all chuckling away.
Gavren Lokri. Hes the dude. The most level headed objective man amongst you all. LISTEN TO GAVREN people, you could do so much with that man.
VBS - all the guys in here are good lads, ill fly with any of em any time they ask me.
FU2 - My corp. Never met a more freindly bunch of guys than these. Always there if u need em, always on hand for advice, so many ideas, so many directions, and the best bit, were freelance so no one has to do anything, yet everyone does so much. Maggot and Zool for getting me into this RP war, Witch for supplying me with ships and wisdom. Mai for everthing, hell, give me a tissue, i love the lots of ya, group hug!
Al Haquis, fecking love the lad, man after my own heart, funny as feck, would fly with him into the jaws of hell, and once we had beaten the feck out of the devil, come out again.
Arch - lovely old chap, bit bald but u cant have it all.
Graylen and garreck, nice chaps, always up for a scrap
Russo, complete nutter but you gotta love fighting the son a bitch.
And theres fecking loads of others, but my mates is what keeps me in this game. Thats what i play for.
i like all of you! cause you always remind me that it's a game and my only time to have fun every day! specially now that my gf is in australia...
i like vodka, flying round drunk and thinking 5:1 is good odds....
i like all the people who bear my constant ramblings and drunk rumblings....
oh and i like CCP for giving us this wonderfull game and my rl friends who introduced me to it
i like isiana (you guys still remember him?) for introducing me to PIE....
k, enough of being nice and friendly lets get drunk and fighting
Well... This'll be incomplete, of course. I'm also including some non-CVA types who are still involved with Amarrian RP, too:
I like Graelyn, because he kidnapped me and was nice about it.
I like Ethidium because he's chemically adept and because he's slick in a Malediction.
I like Jon G. because he's a standup frigateer.
I like Hardin for his disco balls.
And I like Vash because he's good about blowing the crap out of me with his Retribution.
Allright, I'll give this a go as well
I like Golan, Hardin and Light. Great guys who have done so much for PIE during their spells as CEO. PIE wouldnt be where it is today without the efforts you guys put in.
I like Ethi, because he's the total nutcase. I thought Ciar was worse, but Ethi just goes from strength to strength.
I like Caya and Kal, because they are true friends.
I like Archbishop and Tarm, not only for bringing something of an industrial side to PIE, but also for their total commitment to the corp. You two make me proud.
I like Lallara and Majaraw, for their directness and honest input regarding whatever it might be.
I like PIE, whose multitude of personalities make me look forward to playing EVE every day. You guys have made me stick to this game for almost two years now.
I like Imperial Dreams, who have always been totally supportive and helpful to the total industrialist noob that I am. You boys have NEVER let me down.
I like the CVA, and the 'diversity' it brings to the game. Even though most corporations have a similar outlook, its the details which makes the CVA shine so much imho. You all bring something to the table. Thanks boys.
I like the MM and the FU2. Some of the greatest pilots I have fought are in those corps. I am primarily a PvP player, and if it werent for you guys that part of the game would have lost an entire dimension for me. Fighting pirates is a dreadful bore after a scrap with your lot.
I like Sarkos, Al Haquis, Eddie Gordo, Maggot, Zoolkhan, Khaldorn Murino and Ragechild. Minnie RP aint half bad with guys like you on the job.
I like the pro-Amarr corps who actually play out a different angle of RP. Aeternus Crusade, UQS, AMAX. Best of luck with the new Alliance!
I like the StarFraction, for giving me a chance to witness a wholly different approach to RP and mentality of warfare in EVE. Lets hope we will get along well as players, and 'script' some good stories together in the coming months
I like Russo and Garreck, because they rock!
(I also like to get drunk on Saturdays, which is why I rarely play on weekends )
I like Ethidium, because he's so crazy i have to ask him not to undock, because we've already blown up three of his ships, and i dont think a fourth would be fair - and because i webbed and scrambled his impairor and it amused me...
I like Ishos, because he left behind an Amarr Navy Nos when his Malediction went up, then came back 10 minutes later for more - even if we didn't fight again.
I like Vashter and Konstantin for reminding me that i can't kill two retributions in a crow.
I like Aralis for having an endless supply of Zealots for me to shoot at.
I like Archbishop because his OOC is a complete contrast to his IC.
I like Gallente chicks, because my loyalist Caldari character suffers from an ironic attraction to them.
I like my alliance mates, for always getting chosen as targets in fleet combat before me.
I like my Raven, and i'm not telling you why.
I like spontaneous RP, and defending what my character believes, regardless of where and when, and i like being considered reasonable when i'm actually in the middle of a rant...
I really like Jon Gray, even though he has been a participant in 5/7 battles in which I lost a Heavy Assault Cruiser. He pushes me to my limits, then gets me killed. Go Jon!
I like putting holes in Terrorist ships that are the size of God. (Big Fuckin Holes)
I like all the boys in PIE, all of them, for doing the thing they do, for their characters...for their class...for their brotherhood and dedication. Golan is VADER. Gaius is the leader of the spanish inquisition reborn. Ethidium is awesome on ventrilo drunk as hell repeating himself and swearing for two hours.
I like the minmatar as my enemies, cause they are for the most part good people, and good pilots. I like that they arent like the pirates i fight in r3. I like that they have honor. Though some bad apples ruin the bunch, I understand theres nothing perfect...and you have to settle sometimes for damn good.
I like all the friends I have made who I have influenced and who have influenced me. I dont wanna name too many people by name, because I know I could be on here for an hour and still forget to include someone who was important.
But for the guy I worked for two years with in a little cell they called an office....GARRECK...You friend in life, in EVE, in paintball, and in faith....SHAMIR...like a second father I could always rely on when life got tough....and SCOTT...loyal to the end...thanks for everything and I expect to see you all on my wing for years to come.
I like America, George Bush, freedom, liberty, God, Jesus, The Pope...I will miss that guy...and tech 2 blasters.
