Some interesting statistics
Recently some statistics were pulled that made me extremely proud of our military. At any given moment we are practically at war with the unaligned half of the game. If you search for our wars you'll quickly see that we are doing our fair share of raiding.
Goons to War: 1 : 1.13
For every goon, a war, and then some.
Current wars: 2244
Current GOONS Wars: 367
% of wars that are GOONS: 16.35%
GOONS accounts for 16.35% of all wars going on right now. Hopef
You sign into IRC and join your alliances' private channel. You see the few regulars left idling, you try to engage them in conversation, but they offer no reply.
The channel is dead.
You join the public channel, searching for signs of life. You see the same regulars, with a few foreign dignitaries who hadn't gotten around to removing the channel from their autojoin script. You try to engage people here, too, but the only response is a few people leaving the channel, reminded of its existen
I never trusted salithus.
Of course, coming from the person wronged, that kind of statement can oftentimes be a lie, that the person saying it had no idea it was coming.
This was not the case.
salithus and I had a very troubled history. I knew that one day something like this would happen. When this finally went down, I was well prepared. Or at least as well-prepared as I could be, given the circumstances. I spent many days in the office where I work running through the various scenarios
Once upon a time a Goon tech raided another nation. The other nation was informed to take up the issue on the 'mercy board', for the raid to stop.
This was the start of something beautiful.
The high war adjudicator, Beefspari, presented these two options:
Write a persuasive essay comparing squares to triangles, and explain which one is better. The essay must be at least 200 words and in persuasive format. Meaning, explain subjective reasoning why one is better in an attempt to ha

A Ripe Harvest
Throughout this war we have discovered both our own combat abilities, and the difference between our resolve and that of our enemies. This war has been fun in its own right, but the following quotes are the icing on the cake. But enough about that, it's time for some Pubbie Tears®!

A thread runs throughout all the Goon gaming guilds, across all the various games we play. It is the question that the leadership will have to ask, find an answer for, and ultimately to choose to ignore or adapt. The question: "How much can we get away with?" The answer is different for each game. Goonswarm, the EVE goon group, at its peak was a bastion of letting its members get away with whatever they wanted. Goonswarm's membership garnered billions of isk (the in-game
Currency in Cybernations: A meaningless personalization choice? Not so.
Some might think so, most probably do. To Goons however, there is but one true currency: the Dong. Why is this you might ask? There is humor in it. A subtle, almost self-deprecatingly ironic, immature humor. This in many ways encapsulates the goon mindset of maximizing humor, and the type of humor we find hilarious. this does not however mean we find everything hilarious, far from it, we have very strict humor s
Why start with NpO/NPO?
When we were beginning the process of coming back, a conscious decision was made to start at the perceived 'center' of the game. This approach was the right one for several reasons. The main practical reason was to form relationships with the most powerful and well connected, and use that as leverage. This prevented us from having to go around making peace with every alliance at war with the former GOONS. I do not know how it would have gone had gone with attempt
Greetings and welcome.
I decided to make this blog to give interested people an insight into GOONS. I am not sure how long I will continue it, but if there is sufficient interest, time permitting, I will keep it going.
What is a Goon, anyway?
Most simply a Goon is a member of the Something Awful Forums.
Less simply there are many, many kinds of Goons out there. Each subforum is practically its own self-contained community, some threads can practically be communities in and of themsel
