Shouldn't it be pretty clear that they scam, from the history of them, I haven't played EVE just read some blogs and such and I think it's pretty public they are scamming idiots... Nothing new here or is there?

My guess is that Goonswarm have been trying to look as honest as they possibly can.

You actually play eve? I think it was just a glorified spreadsheet program with pretty pictures.. because thats about all the gameplay eve had was clicking menu's. Though I do love hearing about the scams people pull off. If you got scammed by this honestly all I can do is laugh my ass off hard, if any guild was to ask for a massive deposit like that I'd immedatly think that something is way wrong here, and go my seperate ways. Then again I have common sense.. and alot of people seem to lack that now a days.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

For your interest, I am not the one who paid out a shit load of credits to the online gaming equivalent of the nephew of the recently deceased Nigerian oil minister and when every laughs seems to think that they were perfectly justified in doing it.

I really don't think you're opinion is trustworthy when it comes to discussing anything related to your knowledge about goon at this point.  Also, eveyone was frothing at all parties involved in that scandal so don't try to spin it into something it's not.

The time to do a call to war was during the ice interdiction when they were truely behaving like sinister villians - where were you when that was happening?  It probably didn't interfere with your operations so you didn't care and guess what?  You being scammed doesn't interupt my operations so the question I have to ask is - what's in it for me to answer your call to war?

The doctors say his chances are 50/50...but there's only a 10% chance of that.

With the reputation Goons have for scamming it always amazes me there's never a short supply of people who give them ISK to join.

You claim to have played since 2003 yet you fell for the Goonswarm recruitment scam? I bet you only noticed the game had spaceships and stargates last week.

Currently playing:

EVE online (Ruining low sec one hotdrop at a time)

Gravity Rush,
Dishonoured: The Knife of Dunwall.

(Waiting for) Metro: Last Light,
Company of Heroes II.

The Mittani is the CEO of Goonswarm. If you read Goonswarm's Wikipedia, which is written by Mittani et al, you will find that every page has the same conclusion: Goonswarm are the glorious heros, and everyone else are a bunch of losers. It's a good example of biased writing. Your suggestion is similar to asking Lenin to give an accurate account of the Cold War.

I don't quite understand what point you're trying to make - if you could re-phrase it, I would be grateful. However, I suspect you might be a Goon who's trying to be subtle or clever in some way.

Lenin died in 1924, the cold war didn't start until 1945. Terrible analogy.

I know someone who wasn't a goon and had been in the game for a week and was taking up the 'recruitment fees' for joining the Goons. These are the same people that give money to Nigerian princes.

Sent me an email if you want me to mail you some pizza rolls.

The difference between Goonswarm and Nigerian scammers is that you approach Goonswarm (and then they chat with you for a while in a friendly way). With Nigerian scammers, you get spam mail from someone you've never met about a topic that's totally new to you.

 

Apart from that though, it does feel tempting to compare Goonswarm to Nigerian scammers.
