CFC losses in February

Like in January, I received the killboard loss data for all CFC and the New Year wasn't kind to those who serve the Evil One. As always, the kills are de-whored, so if you did 1% damage of a 100B titan, you get 1B kills and not 100B. 49453 API verified kills were processed, distributed among the alliances:

266 - Circle-Of-Two
31 - Executive Outcomes
183 - Fatal Ascension
231 - Fidelas Constans
56 - Forged of Fire
85 - Get Off My Lawn
771 - Goonswarm Federation
275 - Greater Western Co-Prosperity Sphere
42 - I Whip My Slaves Back and Forth
107 - RAZOR Alliance
114 - RvB - BLUE Republic
152 - RvB - RED Federation
228 - SpaceMonkey's Alliance
112 - Tactical Narcotics Team
113 - The Initiative.
193 - The Bastion
The minions of Evil didn't want that 2958B anyway. Let's see who killed them:
The Pirates are back in #1, Mordus Angels (155B), Black Legion. (165B), Triumvirate. (12B) and Sorry We're In Your Space Eh (59B) are killing CFC at large again. Look at their 500M+ contribution kills: 1361M, 1031M, 577M, 834M, 2927M, 969M, 1750M, 1153M, 1171M, 1086M, 1142M, 1524M, 2165M, 2684M, 1046M, 1022M, 2209M, 762M, 885M, 2161M, 550M, 894M, 523M, 510M, 589M, 1234M, 560M, 631M, 555M, 822M, 954M, 1352M, 1123M, 1265M, 908M, 1170M, 2894M, 510M, 722M, 782M, 594M, 663M, 660M, 1161M, 848M, 6614M, 529M, 543M, 898M, 1821M, 558M, 687M, 1067M, 707M, 1858M, 1066M, 501M, 1327M, 525M, 519M, 513M, 2614M, 823M, 890M, 923M, 521M, 923M, 657M, 574M, 1672M, 1580M, 997M, 2447M, 2859M, 2171M, 985M, 604M, 2196M, 912M, 778M, 2305M, 606M, 2703M, 557M, 3158M, 1184M, 1340M, 528M, 511M, 2730M, 701M, 2018M, 719M, 608M, 1370M, 1325M, 638M, 704M, 1274M, 1184M, 2545M, 568M, 862M, 928M, 521M, 538M, 977M, 761M, 2144M, 2715M, 966M, 1894M, 536M, 1051M, 2160M, 696M, 2895M, 634M, 606M, 952M, 578M, 547M, 698M, 841M, 1123M, 567M, 534M, 1619M.

N3, the "biggest enemy of CFC" is once again #2 after doing 10% of the CFC damage. Anyway, let's not forget their big contributors and 500M+ kills: 71 - Northern Coalition.
49 - The Kadeshi
42 - Northern Associates.
30 - Nulli Secunda
18 - Gentlemen's.Club
2750M, 2969M, 702M, 530M, 1515M, 503M, 962M, 510M, 2242M, 580M, 897M, 629M, 610M, 628M, 1102M, 961M, 774M, 943M, 563M, 944M, 518M, 1174M, 511M, 519M, 1637M, 796M, 735M, 1292M, 1288M, 975M, 1103M, 1301M, 586M, 520M, 919M, 840M, 638M, 908M, 1372M, 707M, 1083M, 574M, 624M, 529M, 705M, 671M, 694M, 529M, 949M, 1036M, 1051M, 521M, 824M, 1002M, 768M, 927M.

RvB is still doing their thing, and CFC is still killing blues: 537M, 2345M, 1212M, 1838M, 2730M, 582M, 1129M, 527M, 1319M, 563M, 585M, 887M, 1432M, 1303M, 580M, 863M, 519M, 639M, 1189M, 516M, 524M, 500M, 726M, 626M, 544M, 572M, 1038M, 1101M, 585M, 624M, 518M, 531M, 671M, 505M, 834M, 2330M, 632M, 1662M, 1936M.

HERO (135B), PL block (97B), xxDeath (197B) and Proviblock (70B) are still causing little damage considering their sizes: 810M, 724M, 556M, 518M, 637M, 526M, 938M, 1787M, 1511M, 658M, 2635M, 584M, 823M, 561M, 764M, 555M, 563M, 856M, 865M, 931M, 1473M, 576M, 671M, 559M, 1080M, 543M, 969M, 796M, 1332M, 523M, 2517M, 743M, 1958M, 1564M, 623M, 1361M, 683M, 656M, 2230M, 552M, 2762M, 642M, 651M, 672M, 655M, 671M, 808M, 838M, 792M, 1227M, 728M, 1010M, 580M, 561M, 2413M, 543M, 786M, 505M, 1100M, 757M, 505M, 573M, 1050M, 1369M, 589M, 884M, 592M, 682M, 971M, 1300M, 1405M, 588M, 1501M, 3356M, 1677M, 1566M, 1954M, 1531M, 2206M, 1620M, 1502M, 1535M, 520M, 727M, 1086M, 1023M, 1148M, 1160M, 1095M, 1277M, 717M, 1635M, 1872M, 1444M, 1947M, 1021M, 506M, 509M, 688M, 1259M, 4987M, 662M, 627M, 1073M, 1314M, 1945M, 2828M, 1549M, 562M, 588M, 2340M, 1823M, 507M, 3067M, 748M, 1057M, 626M, 2559M, 646M, 2104M, 1123M, 516M, 817M, 590M, 514M, 713M, 736M, 516M.

Let's see the killer fleet sizes and lost ship costs. Both pies are ISK values. We can see that small gangs inflict huge damage to CFC:
Finally, let's see where they died:
396 - Highsec
250 - Lowsec
828 - Foreign Null
1484 - CFC space:
323 - Deklein
231 - ValeOfTheSilent
183 - Fountain
161 - Branch
142 - Fade
137 - Venal
102 - Tribute
96 - PureBlind
45 - Syndicate
32 - Tenal
24 - CloudRing
8 - OuterRing
They clearly do some offensive activities with record high losses in Foreign Nullsec, but they still mostly lose ships at home.

What highsec non-deccable corps are about?

Many "content creators" claim that everyone should "face the consequences of their actions" and shouldn't be except from "player interactions". The most surprising thing about them is that they don't rally against NPC corps and 1-man corps. Mostly because these already consequence and interaction-free corps are full of their alts who make ISK for them while they gank.

An ISK making alt has little reason to be in a group, as the main is already in a group. The player is cooperating with his main group, while the alt has no other purpose than farming and feeding the main. Those who want to be in a group while farming are highsec carebears: players whose only activity is (ineffective) ISK making and Raven leveling.

They have no effect on the EVE politics.
They have no influence.
They have no kills.
They have little ISK, since they are outcompeted by botters and multiboxers.
They are nothing! They are roleplaying a bum who sporadically do badly paying jobs.

I can't imagine why does someone pay money and spend time to roleplay an irrelevant nobody. But I've learned that social people can explain literally everything with "having fun". But it's not about them. It's about those who want to take even this nothing from the bums and force them to stay docked for a week.

This is where the ruthless capitalist and the sadistic psychopath separates: do you just ignore the unsuccessful ones and let them starve if they refuse to improve; or do you go out of your way to find them and smash their heads with a baseball bat because it's funny when they cry? The "highsec content creators" - or their fraction that survived the Erotica1 bans - clearly choose the second option, with now even targeting Ventures.

Deccing corps full of useless socials has nothing to do with competition and piracy: no one with enough brain to make serious ISK joins a "highsec industrial corp" or a "we do everything" corp. This is about pure sadism and should not be enabled. Those who want nothing but chatting with similar irrelevant losers should be left to do it. Maybe some of them realize how bad they are and start to improve if we give them some time. You can suicide gank anyone who flies bling anyway.

Before anyone would cry "space WoW", I'd repeat that these corps wouldn't be different from the NPC corps, except the chat wouldn't be spammed:
  • No POCO or POS
  • NPC corp tax collected for CONCORD
  • No tax can be collected for the corp
  • No alliance membership

PS: a cloaky Tengu works better with a ... cloak.

Weekend minipost: diplomatic shuttle

Just a quick one: don't ignore the diplomatic shuttle blueprint you get on all accounts! You can craft the shuttles on Jita 4-4 for minimal materials and cost and sell the 10-package for 30-40M.

I keep donating MoA and -EH-, despite Goons keep telling me that they only provide content. They mean ships explode and both sides have fun.

Weekend miniscam

Important note: Vote! Here is my recommendation list.

Being EVE-famous has it drawbacks: I'm spammed by scammers and idiots. Here is the latest:

It should be obvious that you are an idiot if you gamble. If you believe any word they say in their advertisements, you deserve to be poor.

PS: not CFC, but so dumb that must be publicized. Now this is CFC.

Who kills the bling of CFC?

A new kind of comment appeared, trying to protect the "Mercs have it harder than MoA" theory: that MoA kills expensive ratting ships, while highsec mercs must find and catch elusive small ships. Instead of random opinions, I gathered all the CFC loss data I have, 9 months from May 2014 to Jan 2015 (you can find their links on the GRR page) and analyzed them all for ship sizes. The losses were separated into 4 groups, the limits were selected to make the groups approximately equal. Below you can see the losses of various CFC alliances in different size groups:
As you can see, GSF and renters are more likely lose big ships, while RvB is mostly losing crap.

You could see how each group has about 1/4 of the total ISK losses. Of course it means very different number of ships:
Size class Number of ships lost
Below 90M crap 404.9K
90-260M ships 42.5K
0.26-1.2B ships 16.7K
1.2B+ whales 2.4K

Now let's see the killers:
As you can see, the truth is the very opposite: Marmite Collective killed mostly whales and MoA killed mostly middle sized ships. One more excuse down.

By the way it's funny to see NPC losses and several CFC alliances among the top CFC killers.

How big is Mordus Angels?

Important: CSM election has started, go and vote! I updated my candidate list with last minute trolls candidates.

I keep getting the comment that it's unfair to compare Mordus Angels to Forsaken Asylum or other highsec mercs, since they have 1300 members while the highsec mercs have only 2-300. This is wrong for two reasons. The first is simple: nothing (but drama and egos) stop highsec mercs to grow bigger. EVE is a game of numbers, if your enemy/competitor shovels more bodies into ships, you can cry all day, but you still lost. I would love a highsec merc alliance that is created by merging all the big names and would gladly give them even the 15B/week blood money Tora demanded because that juggernaut could literally lock out CFC (including RvB) from highsec. Will it ever happen? No, because Merc1 hates Merc2 more than he loves kills and ISK. But if you choose to be small and choose to not share an alliance ticker with Joe-who-called-me-noob-in-2008, live with the consequences!

But there is a more interesting thing in the numbers. I grabbed the 2015 Jan, 2014 Dec, Nov and Oct downloaded CFC loss reports and checked for pilots and corporations within MoA. In these 4 months, MoA killed 638B CFC and this is de-whored number! I mean if a 100B Goon titan was killed by a Black Legion fleet with some MoA doing 1% of the damage, they get 1B damage booked, not 100! Please note that only the CFC kills are processed, so if a MoA pilot killed some random dude, it's not in the data.

Let's see the top MoA corporations and their kills in the last 4 months:
Dissident Aggressors: 127B
Nullbear Tear Extractors: 84B, note: left MoA on 2014-11-03
Tellurian Works: 32B
Los Primitivos: 28B, note: joined MoA on 2014-11-23
Blackwater USA Academy: 27B, note: joined MoA on 2014-10-20
Delta vane Corp.: 27B
Under Heavy Fire: 25B
PiU PiU oLoLo I am driver UFO: 21B
Foundation Cutting-Edge: 19B
shadow and cloaking: 13B
DAB: 13B, note: joined MoA on 2014-11-21
Zeura Brotherhood: 12B, note: joined MoA on 2014-11-06
20th Legion: 12B, note: joined MoA on 2014-10-24
Angels and Demons Inc.B: 12
These corps did 572B damage to CFC out of the 638.

I calculated the de-whored damage of the individual pilots and sorted them. Below you can see how the top 50, second 50 and so on pilots performed:
92% of the damage is done by the top 200 pilots. 540 pilots got on any CFC kill reports over the 4 months. So we can conclude that MoA isn't bigger than the highsec mercs, just doesn't clear inactives and low performers.

Finally, let's see the top 50 MoA pilots:
Komiser Kemal: 18.2B
Neok1337: 15.5B

What is HERO?

PL is back in Catch, massacring HERO again, setting up killer POS to warp careless ones into it and play stupid self-destruct games.

HERO can't defeat PL. HERO can't even avoid someone defecting every second week. Yet HERO is capable of keeping their space from PL. How?

Because it's not their space. It's the space of PL. HERO is just renter there. The only thing that differentiate them from B0T is that they don't pay in ISK, but in loss reports. The deal is simple: every time PL is bored, HERO lines up a bunch of players for massacre. Another "victory" is more important to PL members than a bunch of ISK that they already have enough, judged from their supercapital armada.

The question isn't how can HERO leaders do it. It's obvious: they get space-power and crapload of ISK from the moons. The question is why do HERO pilots show up day after day in fleet without the slightest chance of victory? Why don't they quit being farm animals waiting for the butcher and play on their own terms? I mean even faction warfare is more fun than this!

PS: hahaha, Hell froze once again! Seraph achieved what only Alex Karrade could do before: make the commenters of EN24 side with me!

PS2: Talking about newbies from Reddit.
Bling + subcap + PvP is bad.
Finally, the true nature of Forged of Fire.
