An Eve player was mean, so Reddit played Santa and sent him 6,000 units of space coal

Eve Online ships

As Eve players may know, a rather lovely Secret Santa event to celebrate the holidays has taken place for some years now, started by the Goonswarm Federation folks. But when one user expressed dissatisfaction with his gift - in increasingly saline terms - they landed themselves on the community’s collective naughty list.

Is multiplayer action on an epic scale your thing? Check out our list of the best MMORPGs on PC.

After receiving a skin for a Purifier - a type of ship - Bneish Rankor posted an expletive-laden complaint that he “doesn’t even use [heresy redacted] Purifiers” and “would have liked anything else but a nasty looking skin.”

The consequences are detailed on Imgur and Reddit. After presumably being called on this attitude at getting given something for free, Rankor says the Secret Santa event should have a minimum value attached, and insists “you should reload forums if I’m posting I tend to edit stuff a lot”.

Someone then posts a link to his profile on zKillboard page, which shows that Rankor has at the very least used a Purifier in the past since he has eleven kills with one, second to his Jackdaw.

Rankor then lives up to his name by complaining further about the uselessness and meaninglessness of his gift. “My point is and still stands: This guy put little to no effort in giving me a meaningful gift”.

The point might stand, if it weren’t for the fact that the account giving the gift is apparently six days old. It’s doubtful that they were able to give anything much more valuable.

Rankor’s rancour didn’t go down well with the rest of the Goonswarm Federation, who according to user Hydrium, “brutally mocked [him] on Mumble for about an hour followed by a ban, a kick from the Alliance and a blacklist. It was hilarious.”

As if that weren't punishment enough, NazAlGhul came up with the idea for everyone following the thread to send him one unit of carbon - the primary element in coal. It caught on, and according to one update several hours ago, he had received over 6,000 units.

So, by that definition, Julius should have stabbed himself to death before the others did it? you cannot look to save face saying you jumped before you were pushed after the shitty way you reacted. Apologise, learn from your mistake, be a better person, have a better life =)

So this guy also bought out the entire delve market of salvager 1s then relisted them for 1-2million a pop. This is important because the main people that buy salvager 1s are newbees. He also found out how easy it was for someone to screw him for fucking over newbees. Never fuck over newbees.

Don't worry about the salvager 1s. He forgets that some of us are into mass production and can flood the market with the stuff. Besides, with his gaming history, I think he gets off mentally for being a dick just like an 18 year old who has been given the family car for his first night out. He just forgets that this history is going to be following him around when he keeps playing online.

Guys i need more carbon please. Also a newbee is still a bee, Fuck bees. Also this article didn't explain why i was upset. It's not entirely because i only got a 25m isk, Little upsetting. Its the fact the "Newbee" wanted ME to give to him. Fuck that

No because that's not how it works. You get assigned a different Secret Santa than he does. You got called out on your shitty entitled behavior and now you're making up every lie in the book to cover your ass. You got commissared for good reason. You were goonfucking and newbeefucking, and now you're salty about it. Best advice to give you now is biomass your main, go on one of your alts and attempt to fix your personality.

Im surprised it wasnt a story about someone from Goonswarm since its essentially a festering pit of scum and villainy more than anything else in eve.
