    Turns out, I was the arsehole all along.

    Not gonna say what I did, but suffice to say, there were some shenanigans. I've lost interest in the game - my autism isn't strong enough. But I certainly had my fun.

    When people take a game that seriously backstabbing becomes an inevitability. It's too funny not to.

    a game is fun as long as you're playing it. it's not a bad built tautology, let me explain.
    when you do pve and learn how to manage distances and tracking, you're the protagonist. when you move to small groups pvp in low sec you learn even more things and you're still the protagonist of your actions. once you move to 0.0 you're a faceless cog among a thousand more cogs, you're being told what to do and where to go, you stopped being the protagonist, you're somebody else's pawn. and during the years eve moved completely, totally, unilaterally toward 0.0 and gigantic numbers, with even devs scamming their way through the ranks, all that's left is solo pve. i don't want to pay a monthly for a solo pve.
    (unless your name is "tabula rasa", but this is another story)
