IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM OLMECA
As of March 27 Bombers Bar attempted to hack into my personal gmail to gain access to the adminship of this website, and to change this announcement. Another bad decision in the series of bad decisions they are making.
As of March 25 they managed to alienate another hardworker, Linus. It seems to be arising from disagreements over deal with Spectre. I can understand it as Spectre literally wants Bombers Bar to collapse. In return, Linus took all the isk they had and left.
Dear Bombers Bar newbros and regulars.
I am putting this here because I believe in your right to know what’s going on in the NPSI care about.
BB entered a decline period a few months ago, beginning from the time when I left FCing and bartending for it. I impulsively enraged at the PL leader for insulting the value (NPSI) that is dear to us, causing them to AWOX 2 BB fleets in return, which was the prima facie cause for me to stop FCing. You will all notice the lack of awesome fleets since then, where we kill tens of billions orchestrating complicated tactics. Both the quality and the quantity of BB fleets has been declining. I wanted tp tell you the reason why, and you will be warned.
After leaving FCing I was still coming to fleets, and doing stuff I liked to do, with some of the BB people with whom we have flown together for a long time. As of this week they sold me out, adding yet another to a series of bad decisions they have been making. In the beginning of March they completely banned me from Bombers Bar, and from my PERSONAL wormhole too, and they killed my Astrahus on March 7th. This was due to not complying with them in two following issues.
First of all they wanted to buy the BB website/domain, which I worked so hard last year for your benefit. They wanted to delete this website and put up a new one. I thought their idea was bad for several reasons I can’t expand here (read the pastebin I will link later if you’re interested in details). So I didn’t feel like doing them YET ANOTHER favor, and asked for AT LEAST a compensation of the real life money I spent to the website last year, which is 150 dollars (hosting, domain name and wordpress theme) in ISK. They had more than enough ISK, but they gave me an offer which was about 1/3rd. Their approach to the new website was already a visionless one, so I declined, which made them mad.
Secondly they wanted me to stop posting on reddit. I was enjoying few overly honest months on reddit after I left BB. I was not hold back by representing BB anymore, so I didn’t need to be politically correct. So I could tell what I thought about PL, Wingspan or other entities. It doesn’t mean everybody should agree, but they were my opinion. They thought I was still somehow representing BB and making it look bad, so asked me to stop. I thought they can’t ask me that as I don’t do bartending for Bombers Bar anymore, I DONT WANT TO represent BB anymore. One thing they could do was banning me and I was prepared. I was still catching them lots of targets as a hunter so their loss anyway.
Thus they banned me from Bombers Bar which I thought, even though it was another childlike decision, they had the right to do it, because they own BB and I left. But they also kicked me from my wormhole (the one we did regular fleets from), and from my alliance, and they killed my Astrahus. We found that wormhole as 5 people. Chaos and Cowkiller went behind others’ back, even though they were the minority, and decided I should go, and forced me out of the wormhole. They recently invited more BB FCs into the wormhole, without asking anyone else’s permission, and they used these people’s help to forcibly kick me. So they separated me with some of my friends too.
This was the final straw in lots and lots of background issues we had, in which I felt like I always tried to innovate and push BB to do better and better things, and they held me back. This wore me down and that was the initial reason why I left BB so easily after we got awoxed by PL. If you are curious about this background, I am making my initial response to them public here, so you can read my side for yourself.
Point is, I am sick and tired of watching these people ruining the NPSI I loved, stealing my hard work and innovations for their own use, and kicking me to thank for it. Be it the wormhole we found, the Armada doctrine, the videos and other marketing content I made, or the website, they are to this day still benefiting lots of things I made/innovated for them. Even their alliance name (Sustainable Whaling) is mine. And after 2 years of hard work, they had the nerve to kick me from my wormhole.
As a response to their spoiledness, and AS I HAVE WARNED THEM THAT I WOULD DO, I am making it my mission to render their BB fleets or other operations dysfunctional to the best of my abilities. In the BB side of it, there will be some collateral damage. Some of you will lose ships in different ways if you join their fleets. Here is a list of people. Any fleet which they FC OR which they are somehow a part of, is a target for me. These people either decided for my eviction or helped with it.
I really liked BB, but vision Nova, Chaos and people like them lacked causes it to decline or stay stale. We have been offering much better content compared to Spectre, but were still so behind in popularity/fleet numbers, because BB leadership just didn’t have enough knowledge or didn’t spend the effort to make it better. They are just a few charismatic people, who can make people like them, but it takes more than charisma to make an Eve entity great. If BB has seen Titan kills and 200 billion killed a month, it was thanks to people like me and we are either too tired to deal with them, or don’t give a shit anymore.
Sorry for this, but it is their fault. Consider yourself warned about joining their fleets.
