    Hello one and all.

    Trying to compile 10-15 things that are commonly misconceived as being normal TEST behavior, false complaints, and all that stuff.

    If you got anything, let me know!

    #1: Not all TESTies are drunken louts, barely sober enough to pilot an Aurora into the bridge of a Bengal carrier, crawl out of the cockpit, and barf on the captain's shoes.

    Just, y'know, a lot of them.

    Some people harp on the things like "disorganization" and "chaos", but after a few beers, the 4th-dimensional-cube-as-corporate-ladder makes a lot more sense. Some call it a weakness, but have you seen NKato's corporate structure diagram? It'll have the kinks worked out later, but it's already obviously 42% better than any other corporate structure. That's the hypercube ideology at work, ladies and gentlemen.

    We never doubt our great leader Montoyas decisions or absent behavior. The love we have for Montoya exceeds all and never fades into darkness. And we shall show our great leader by the slaughter of every Corporation vessel acquired that we are committed to TEST.
    Long live Montoya

    It is commonly held that TEST has no real leadership and this is completely unfounded. The fact is we're all CEOs of the org and direct ourselves to do things we want to do.

    Actually it's true, not all TESTies like beer.




    Many TESTies LOVE beer!

    While we at TEST like to joke around about just being a bunch of drunken louts crashing Auroras into everything, we are in fact going to have a ton of squadrons for people who are serious about the game and want to play in a mature environment.

    Drunk crashing is fun, but optional.

    Loading small, inexpensive ships with explosives and ejecting after bringing them to bear and full-ahead-full towards a cap ship is actually a viable, and good strategy if there is a rescue boat nearby, like kamikazies, with less friendly deaths.

    However, on a more related note, sometimes being buzzed is beneficial because it can cause a person to relax and react better to some situations. Me playing Destiny Cruicible is a great example. No beers, bottom of team. 3 beers, same team, I average 2nd and 3rd.

    The truth is that many of us have Mustangs to crash with.

    Oh that is easy!

    1) We are disorganized!
    FALSE!

    Somehow we are the biggest, most active, most successful organization in the game with our own stream team! Yet we are disorganized? Makes no sense.

    2) It is a big free-for-all with no leadership!
    FALSE!
    This is due to the misunderstanding of what flat leadership structures mean. Flat leadership means I have ass, also that any of you can reach out to me any time and not have to go through three layers of middle management.

    3) Being a port of a mega-Org like TEST means you are just a number, you will not be noticed or be able to make friends.
    FALSE

    Its exactly the opposite, being in a large org allows smaller more intimate groups to form up that have similar interests. You are more likely to find somebody that shares your unhealthy fetish with Yellow Freelancers here in TEST than in some 8 man org.

    4) TEST is not serious about the game
    FALSE

    We have some of the most hardcore backers in this org, some that have spent more money on this game than most of us spend on a car!

    We also have some very skilled and highly ranked players from other games in this org, they just don't play much because they are too busy other games until SC is ready. Most people have no interest in playing a game in alpha, they want a polished product.

    5) Montoya is a jerk that treats members badly and regularly scolds them

    Mostly false.

    You are all morons! Stop making stupid accusations! I will ban you all!

    Another misconception is that we constantly necro threads. We only do that some of the time.

    Does this mean we don't even get a number?
