EVE Online developer CCP's global posse mounts up for this EVE Fanfest video, which explains the only way to follow the company to the top — harden the f—k up.
This is perhaps the most glorious self-promotional thing I've ever seen a company do. Not only do they have the attitude down, the lyrics are pretty damn inventive too.
Every day is a fight, there's no room for bloopers Bugs coming at us like in Starship troopers
And just when you think it can't get any better, Techno Viking shows up. I cried real tears.
I've gone ahead and included the full lyrics for the song below. Feel free to sing along, though if you're at work you might want to keep it down a bit — the language gets a bit rough.
Thanks to everyone who directed us to the clip! We owe you more than you will ever know.
Lyrics: Intro First off - let me make a short introduction I'm the space 5.0, keeping EVE from destruction Guard is the name, Lead master of the game Top dog in the gamemaster hall of fame
Im chillin at my desk with two girls and one pimp cup Sippin champagne, reading mails checkin what's up Isk spamming scum bags disturbing the peace? WOOP WOOP its the sound of space police!
Every day is a fight, there's no room for bloopers Bugs coming at us like in Starship troopers We help when we can, every child, every man Treat the boogie man to a permanent ban!
We're CCP! We march on fearlessly! Excellent is what we strive to be!
If you're going to follow us to the top
HARDEN THE FUCK UP!
You best watch out bitch if you're an exploiting scammer Guard will gank you in the face with his big ban hammer Remove all your Isk , throw your arse in the slammer Make you share a cell with a manic ISK spammer
Like a never ending spam thread on racist biking This song has something for everyone's liking Holy shit I see local spiking
...ladies and gents, its techno Viking!
Ever flowing - never standing still We roll with the punches, move in for the kill The competition ends up six feet in the ground With fists full of awesome we go round after round
United we stand never ever growing weary We cannot fall cause gravity is just a theory We reach higher than the giants in operations Patience soon well be crip walking in stations
We're more agile than a president dodging a shoe We need three continents for our massive crew From Atlanta to Shanghai to the Icelandic nation Throw your hands up for World Domination!
