Why do we blame Shink?
« on: October 02, 2015, 12:40:42 pm »
By now, blaming Shink for all our problems has become a staple of GOIO, even for those who never flew with him. In this thread, I request that any who have knowledge of the reasons put them down. For prosperity.

Let's be honest. Everything is Shink's fault.

But why? What did he do? This is a serious pseudo philosophical and historical question.

As I understand it, Shink was Rear Admiral  Zill's co captain for many tournaments. He had the unenvious job of trying to keep up with someone I still consider the best pilot in the game. As such he would die a lot because he couldn't get away clean when Zill decided to break contact.

I consider Zill the best pilot but not necessarily the best captain or tactician. He would do things with pilot tools and gaps just big enough to fit a goldfish that still confuse me to this day.

Zill was kind of fantastic, always dreaded whenever I flew against him, and those few times I flew with him, also fantastic.
