No one in Eve likes to get blobbed. In fact, we hate it so very much that we use it as slander in local whenever possible. Getting blobbed, being blobbed, it is all right up there with being perma-jammed by ECM amongst the things most loathsome about Eve Online. In other words it sucks.
And rightly so. Dying to overwhelming force does suck. By golly, it just ain't fair. And it isn't fair. Having your ship exploded by a bunch of other ships and losing it without having an even insignificant chance of escape - well that can be a serious bummer. Lucky for us Eve Online is not a fair game.
There is no other group in Eve Online more dedicated to not blobbing you to death than Stay Frosty and the good pirates in A Band Apart. We will often go out of our way to try and avoid it. I've experienced moments when we've actually put ourselves into danger by not blobbing someone. We have discussions about it all the time, we debate the merits of this or that tactic, and we constantly strive to bring good fights to the honorable citizens of New Eden. We honestly do all of those things. And yet, we also like to win fights. Losing fights is also not fun and also a real bummer.
The thing is, and here is some harsh truth for you to chew on today - real blobs in Eve are extremely rare.
So what is a "real" blob? Let me give you a great example. Yesterday one of our pilots was down in Null Sec being extremely annoying to the locals. Blowing up ships and generally causing problems. He was in an Osprey Navy Issue. And eventually the locals formed a response fleet to deal with this offender. A Proteus, Garmur, Thrasher, Kikimora, Caracal, Ferox, Keres, and two Jags. That is a solid kitchen sink defense fleet and an actual, bonafide blob. Way more ships than needed to deal with a single Cruiser. And exactly what you would expect, because dealing with that Cruiser was exactly what that fleet was for. It wasn't about the good fight, that ship needed to be expunged. And it was.
Also yesterday I was fighting a Succubus in my Dramiel when another SF pilot landed and helped me explode it. He did 12% of the damage. I would have won the fight anyway, but the help was certainly appreciated. That is not a blob, but the other pilot didn't see it that way.
A blob is just a figure of speech. There are no real blobs. You are rarely being targeted for individual destruction. The hand of fate just put you in the way of a much larger force. It does suck, but it isn't usually personal. The other guys are hanging out with their friends, roaming, forming up, moving, having fun, chewing the fat - when they spot your ship on d-scan. Or the scout reports back. Or whatever. This conversation never happens, "Guys there is a lone Drake in the Open and we have about 20 ships with us, which is waaay more than we need. Let's just let this guy go on his way until we can find another 20 man gang to engage."
Now, I have been in fleets when we might only send 4-5 ships along to kill that Drake, but otherwise that ship is getting toasted. Why? Because from the aggressor's perspective anything and everything in space is a threat. That Drake is probably bait for a much larger force, or a cyno, or god knows what! This is how things work in Eve. And when he explodes alone and without help we all feel a little sad for the guy, we do. But we feel happy for ourselves because we avoided being blobbed in return!
And I know, being that Drake is a serious bummer. You got yourself blobbed real good. You did. Me telling you that blobs don't exist is not helping things. But what really happened is that the other guy had more friends than you did and you died because you were alone, you didn't use your d-scan properly, and you were flying around solo in a DRAKE!!?? (Ok, I know this is just an example, but people do this all the time.)
Eve is not a fair game. And everything that happens is all about perspective. The sooner you learn these truths about how things actually work, the sooner you will start to be more successful and happy about your time in the game.
And feel free to continue bitching about blobs in local. We all do.
