Mittens needs to login the game some time and actually go shoot a god damn internet space ship for once. I like how eve allows this kind of game play but that does not necessarily mean I enjoy anyone who prefers to disband years worth of work by finding a disgruntle corp director. And for those of you who dont know, BOB disbanding was sheer luck on Goons part, Mittens just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Besides that he just claims alot a victories when in reality he is just a troll.

To drive my point home. Why pay for a game with amazing fleet battles(not atm due to stupid dominion expansion) and all kind of other sheet, just to hang on irc and try to meta game some sensitive information only to not use that information to play the game, but rather use it for more long drawn evemails and convos to try and weasel something else useful from it.

And now he gets to go to GDC. dont get me wrong I like sins of the solar spymaster, but he certainly doesnt need to be at the game DEVELOPER Confrence. Also this is just PR by CCP to get moar subs. Play the game dammit, dont ruin it for everyone else!

"...in reality he is just a troll."

You may want to check the mirror before making accusations of others.

"Why pay for a game with amazing fleet battles(not atm due to stupid dominion expansion) and all kind of other sheet, just to hang on irc and try to meta game some sensitive information..."

Because he finds it more fun than the other parts of the game?

"And now he gets to go to GDC."

This just sounds like sour grapes at the idea that a video game nerd became "famous" and it wasn't you.

I'm glad "Mittens" is talking at GDC, maybe some more devs will learn about the cool stuff going on in EVE and develop more games that allow that kind of freedom.

Having spoken to the man on TS and sat through a guest lecture he gave to E Uni on espionage, I can safely tell you the man is nothing more than a glorified forum troll with a massively inflated ego.

He maintained a carefully cultivated reputation and waited with people to contact him with the information he needs, sometime he gets lucky and something useful is offered.

Over all he comes across as slightly bitter and extremely condescending.

First: BoB defector came to him. He did nothing.

Second: Pay your bills guys, OK?

Third: When you lose only 10% of your systems it's important to just run away and not fight at all.

Uhm, well, since there is no more Goonswarm alliance, will he be representing the "Spymaster for Goonswarm" or just another EVE Online player?
