I commented from conversations with friends that for a 0.0 denisen, a blob prety much needs to have like 100+ ships going up against 100+ ships and that any thing lesser really doesn't qualify. A fleet of 20-50 ships is just a nice tight roaming gang. And then there's my experience that a pirate who gets tackled and ganked by a small squadron of 5 ships will complain of being "blobbed". Even I went (o.O) to that one. After what? (goes and checks) what do you know... almost 2 months of FW. I've come to certain conclusions about "blobing".
My new definition of blobing:
Blobing is when you get your ass haded to you by a superior force when you fail miserably in the pre-battle phase of combat and want to bitch about your lack of skill.I'm writing this as I'm listening to MicroWarpCast #2. An excelent pod cast, go listen to it. I think I need to address the apparent lack of Carebear blogs as mentioned in the cast. The reasons behind it etc... I'll save that for my next post.
