$8000 Ship Destroyed In Eve Online Leads to Gaming's Best Recorded Meltdown

Hardcore Gamer: Things start out surprisingly calm, as only the more level headed members of the Pandemic Legion have shown up to try and deal with the crisis. None of these individuals seem to have actually lost their ships as they weren't stupid enough to fall for this, but they are trying to recover the ships of their friends that are still stuck out there. Pretty quickly, things escalate into one of the most hilarious rants the internet has ever seen. (EVE Online, PC)

Given that people have lost actual money in-game, bit surprised no one's been murdered.

The funniest gaming related piece I've ever read! The commentary is just as funny as the tirade itself. Thank you Hardcore Gamer.

I have no idea what happened, have to read 2 pages of gibberish

I know nothing about this game....

Member of clan became disgruntled at clan withdrawing from an agreement between him and clan.

So he became a traitor, allied with a rogue group and lead his clan to a trap.

So a very expensively built shit was destroyed. And the soundcloud link shows him reacting with pure rage.

It's not for people that have lives.
MotherLight  +   671d ago
What defines having a life is simply being alive. You are born into this world to do whatever you want with your life. Just because it is not how you live, doesn't mean that person is not living.

If you are a alive, you have a life. No matter what it is you do.

We create laws, wrong and right. In actuality there is no real wrong or real right. There is no justification on what is more important. The Universe doesn't work that way. Those are ideas and morals that we make up for ourselves that have no real relation to reality itself.

Just upsets me a little when people honestly think they are that important. No person on this earth is more important than the other and nothing they do is more important than another. All of that other stuff is in our heads and our own beliefs.

They are breathing, aren't they? So I do think they have some kind of life happening...
kydrice  +   671d ago
I think he meant to say "Social lives" Anyway, there are people out there with whose more important than another. Say for example, it'd be easy for someone to come and shoot me dead right now but I'd have a much harder time if I wanted to go and kill the President (WHICH I'M NOT! IF THERE ARE ANY CRAZY CANADIAN LADIES READING THIS, I'M NOT BEING SERIOUS!! THIS IS JUST A HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION AND I AM NOT PLANNING TO KILL BARACK OBAMA)

LOL @Motherlight, we all know what he meant by that. If you spend most of your day living in a video game, you don't go outside, perhaps you can't dedicate enough time to school or your career. Not to mention some people have kids, or a gf, maybe friends? When somebody states "he/she has no life", it is a mean way of saying that they spend too much time doing one thing that can have a negative effect on their life.

As for "there is no wrong or real right", I have no idea what you are on about. THERE IS morals, people BELIEVE in not doing things that will hurt others, and doing things to help others. We aren't animals, although in a sense we are, we are much more evolved than that to start thinking like primitively and ACTUALLY believe that there is no right or wrong.

If a person works, handles his/her responsibility and chooses to be on EVE most of the time...its their business. What's it to you?

Acting like these guys just do nothing. Most people who play EVE have careers and families...and they have EVE. Doesn't mean they don't have lives or they shouldn't be investing so much time into their passion. Because that's what it is...their passion. Who are you to tell something not to devote time to their passion? Get over yourselves, immediately. Taking a funny situation and just messing it all up with your finger pointing from the mountain posts. Shut up.

So selling drugs is not wrong , playing video games more important then feeding your kids in your logic xP . There is right and wrong.
Lovable  +   671d ago
This is arguably the funnies thing I've read here in N4G. Still can't stop laughing LOL
Godmars290  +   671d ago
Pretty sure that larger sums have been lost in that game. More's been swindled, with the added rub of it happening in-character with the game world.
MikeyDucati1  +   671d ago
Oh man, this is great!!! The soundcloud link is absolutely hilarious. Tears are salty sweet.
Septic  +   671d ago
Lol yeah. Talk about rage.

Does anyone know how you go about buying those Revenant ships, other than buying one?
NegativeCreepWA  +   671d ago
Lmao, I like the end, "hey, lets forget about it and go play Chivalry or something"
NegativeCreepWA  +   671d ago
I wish they recorded the aftermath, when they got everyone out.
MotherLight  +   671d ago
Hahahaha the stuff that Grath guy said.. He takes that game so seriously. I don't even know how he can remember all that lingo. Almost as good as Leeroy Jenkins. The amount of money that ship cost does make it all the more sweet though lol.

"It's not like it's the first time! They're consistently f****** retarded! Not to mention with Black Legion sitting on him like f****** nanny all g****** month, looking for his f****** stupid a** Revenant all g****** month. You wanna take it out and hot rod...WHERE?!! Right under their f****** noses!!!"

Man if they had the "beep" to blank out his cursing...that would be even more hilarious!
MotherLight  +   671d ago
Hahaha that part made me laugh so hard. It was the best.
PockyKing  +   671d ago
WHERE!!! lol
kalkano  +   671d ago
I actually think I've heard worse.
steve30x  +   671d ago
Maybe he will think twice the next time before spending an insane ammount of money on game items.
NegativeCreepWA  +   671d ago
I've heard much worse, over much less on xbox live.
blvdnights  +   671d ago
Not even close..
"Gaming's best recorded meltdown" bull#$&@, if you go to youtube and search game rage or any variant of that subject matter you'll find at least a hundred videos that are truly meltdowns. Off the top of my head I can recall 50 dkp minus easily being one of the best recorded meltdowns.
SITH  +   667d ago
LMAO these eve players are insane. I am glad my Star Citizen ships totaling just under a $1,000, have insurance. Life Time Insurance at that!
