Thumping the Gummi Bears....

Over a year ago, a german based corp called the Adventures of the Gummy Bears war decced Eve University.  They were a typical dec, nothing special.  Then one of our groups of students running wormhole sites came across a system with tons and tons of Gummy Bear POS's in it.  Most were offline, quite a few were not.  So we did some planning and we've killed 10 large towers so far, and put another into reinforced.  Ship kills have been rather varied, but include 1 carrier (Found empty at safe spot, no avail pilot to steal), 2 command ships, and assorted others.  We've also managed to steal a faction fitted Curse and a Guardian.  What's amusing is the Gummy Bears seem confused as to why we would come to this WH, spend hours and hours killing their towers and attacking them all cause they war-decced us a year ago.  Here's the answer....

Eve Uni never forgets our friends or our enemies.  Gummy was unrepentant about their dec, their desire to kill newbies and pad their  killboard.  Eve Uni is unrepentant about kicking our enemies in the forks until they squeal for mercy.  It doesn't matter how long it was since the crime they committed to earn their -10 standings from the Uni.  If we find you in a place where we can hurt you, then we will.  It as Keld so bluntly put it, a lesson for our students and for our enemies.  Our students are learning about Wormhole and POS warfare as well as patience and our enemies are learning that the newbies have teeth and will fight back.

The Gummy Bears have told us they don't care about these losses, but I can't imagine anyone having to sit there and watch as the unstoppable tide of newbies smash POS after POS, kills the ships they fight back with and discovers their deep safe spots and captures assets left alone without it hurting.  It would hurt me, no matter how much isk I have.

As always, I have to praise our students, they show patience, discipline and courage in fighting so far from home for long.  Such people are the joy that keeps me playing EVE Online.

Let me deny the rumors...

There have been some rumors of late about Eve Uni roaming low sec and hot dropping dreads and carriers on poor unsuspecting carebears.....I mean pirates.  Allow me to reassure you.  The end is not nigh.  The Ivy League Navy and Eve University have no capital fleet.  Any sightings of these supposed Uni dreads and carriers and titans is merely the effect of a new form of Electronic Warfare we are testing.  We just make you think there's 5 capital ships with a 150 man support fleet.  What's actually there is just 4 battleships and 20 assorted other T1 ships.

As everyone knows, the only ships I fly are Ravens and Hulks, so there is no reason to panic if your overview says things like Armageddon or Revelation or Phoenix.  Instead, rest assured that it is merely an illusion and a group of Capital Energy Turrets didn't hit you for 5000+ points of damage.  It's all in your head.

Now I would like to announce that we ARE having a special on specially engraved silver coated meathooks.  Reserve your spot now in Ubercado's corpse collection and for a little extra, get that extra special hook for your cold, dessicated corpse to hang from.  After all, nothing says you're elite more than your own silver, engraved meathook.

And as always, to collect your "I got WTFOMFGBBQ'd by the Newbies of Eve Uni" T-shirt, just bring your kill mail to Aldrat Pator Tech School.  Just remember that if Ubercado shows up with a chainsaw and mentions it's time to shorten the line, RUN!!!

All other inquiries may be made to my secretary, "Bill".  Bill is the Caldari Marine Corps Mk XXXVII Warbot outside of my office.
