General Zakev > i just hope not to get jammedFor some reason, General was unaware of the fact that Concord's presence in the ice field meant he would automatically be jammed after he fired his first missile. Not that a Caracal is a practical ganking ship, but still. As General began fitting his ship, KnightRider2000 suggested an alternative ganking setup:
Kyraiela > good luck. :)
KnightRider2000 > i was thinking smart bombsThe ringleader, Kyraiela, proved herself to be a master strategist:
General Zakev > sometimes they work
General Zakev > but you need to be close and he would see it coming
furcillin > heh, disco ships
KnightRider2000 > but i was buzzing him all nigh in a rifter and he let me get right on him
General Zakev > rifter isn't a threatThe miners took an agonizingly long time to coordinate their brilliant attack plan.
Kyraiela > general, form fleet with knight. knight get on top of him, general warp in, then knight drop from fleet
Kyraiela > B4 to C5, checkmate
General Zakev > great but where is he?While trying to figure out how to land a Caracal on top of the bumper, the rebels stopped to help someone file a petition.
furcillin > not in ice field 1
Kyraiela > ice belt 2
Kyraiela > knight, get on top of one of them
Michael Podiene > How do I report being bumped to CCP? A petition?Kyraiela still believed in the rumors that I was permabanned and that all Agents were my alts. Finally, General warped his Caracal next to a bumper and opened fire.
Kyraiela > yes, pettition if they do it multiple times, make james 315 and make it plausable he's possibly at it again in other accounts
Agent Dilbert Jenkins survived the attack, and General Zakev was wasted by the Concord squad. Where did it go wrong?
General Zakev > jammed by concordThe very same highsec miners who begged CCP to buff Concord and protect them from gankers now suffered the consequences. They didn't like it one bit.
furcillin > so, concord jams...
General Zakev > yes it's total bullshit
KnightRider2000 > general did you get poped?
General Zakev > yes
Kyraiela > good work GeneralOf course, it wouldn't matter what manner of ganking ship they used; the New Order always emerges victorious. It's kind of our thing.
KnightRider2000 > you get him?
furcillin > they warped off
General Zakev > nope
Kyraiela > of course, cowards
General Zakev > not even a second volley
KnightRider2000 > think a smart bomb would have worked betterThe resistance movement debated whether their best hope lay in continuing to file petitions or to beg for nerfs to Concord(!). If that's the best our enemies have, is it any wonder the New Order is so successful?
General Zakev > that's if you could web him
Kyraiela > So that is their game. They knew all this on forehand
General Zakev > course they did
Kyraiela > only way to kill them off is to report excessive bumping to CCP
General Zakev > or you could get CCP to change the mechanics of concord
Kyraiela > they won't
Sargent Jadon > ive been blocking anyone who reports james 315 as their "lord" its offensive to me lolAnd so the resistance movement in Kino withered away. The rebels would continue to launch attacks from time to time, but none so coordinated as Kyraiela's "checkmate" maneuver.
furcillin > i just want to know who's actually been paying them
Kyraiela > a few idiots
furcillin > enough to feed the fire
Kyraiela > it's just maffia extortion
Incredibly, they didn't stop using Caracals as gank ships. Face it, miners: It's time to join the New Order and find out what real leadership looks like.
