The Lost Legion, Part 2

Previously, on MinerBumping... Aliosis II adamantly refused to obey the Code, and his mining alts suffered dearly for it. Aliosis attempted to retaliate by having another alt declare war against me. To my surprise, Aliosis was a member of the Black Legion. alliance, a bastion of elite PvP in nullsec. The stage was set for an apocalyptic battle for the honour of highsec.


(Credit to Varvara M for the poster. Click here for the full-size version.)


On the eve of the titanic struggle, both sides were absolutely confident of victory. Only one of them could be right. Guess which one?


Black Legion surprises its enemies by unexpectedly dropping capital ships at the critical moment. But the Experimental Fun Times Corp had a few aces up its own sleeve.


The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.
-- Sun Tzu

By closing and immediately re-opening the exact same corporation, EFTC dissolved the wardec, thereby inflicting 50 million isk upon the aggressor. It's a move that would make a judo master jealous. This was the tenth time EFTC won a war in this manner--a total of half a billion isk in enemy assets destroyed. A marvelous war record considering I haven't had to fire a shot.


Since Aliosis was no longer logged onto the alt that he used for the wardec (or not paying attention to the alt's window) he was apparently unaware that he had already lost the war.


Aliosis worried that I would spend the rest of my days in an NPC corp, for fear of his wrath. I assured him that this was not the case.


My profile confirmed that I remained the founder and CEO of the Experimental Fun Times Corp--responsibilities from which I had no intention of resigning.


I resumed bumping operations, including bumps against Aliosis' own alts, the very miners he sought to protect with his ill-fated war.


As someone who has spent a lot of time in the role of a conquering hero, I am resolved always to be magnanimous in victory. I hoped to engage Aliosis in a private convo so we could closely review his mistakes and prevent them from being repeated. But he gave me the silent treatment.


I assumed Aliosis must have finally realized what had become of his wardec, and that he was sulking.


...No, not yet. After all this time, he was still looking forward to a war that was long since won by the New Order. His poor manners weren't prompted by his defeat at all--it was just his normal behavior! In that case, how would he react when he did hear the news?

To be continued...

    Maybe CCP should implement in game something like errrrr i don't know something like an employment history, and if someone read this history can avoid this........ oh wait :D

    3. Anon 11:53 are you claiming that Aliosis II doesn't exist with that post full of evidence and reason?

      Black Legion should start controlling better what kind of players they let in...or maybe they're all like that, ignorant of game mechanics and prone to tears?

    1. Carebears butt hurt over carebear mechanics lol. Please PLEASE petition CCP to make it so you can't drop corp during a war dec or make the war dec follow you for 7 days. We wouldn't need to suicide gank any more.

    2. Thats actually a really good idea, anon 11:15. I think I'll make a forum thread in the ideas section for that

    3. Carebear abuse of this mechanic is exactly why James 315 uses it to beat carebears over the head.

      Yes, please start a forum thread. Eliminating this form of wardec avoidance is one of the New Order's long term goals.

      Delete
    4. Trask? so you are calling Black Legion carebears? the same BL which CFC paid off (hey sounds familiar maybe they brought null permit!?)

      Carebears by definition do not wardec?! Otherwise they are not really carebears. By all means re-define the term how ever you please. Until it has no meaning.

    5. This has to be every embarassing for Black Legion, seeing that one of their member was:


      A) Mining in high sec to avoid risk, thus being a full-fledged carebear

      B) Smacktalking like a kid

      C) So ignorant of game mechanics that he ended up being tricked.


      If this is not embarassing for an "elite pvp" corp, what is?

      Delete
    6. a) what about personal decision

      B) we all do

      c) whos being tricked ?

      embarrassing for James , the truth behind all this ho he cowardly instantly dropped corp , cried in local etc.

      you can't see James's local tears , but it was there !

      and vatt people still laughing at james , that's the reason he didn't show up in local since "part 1"

      Delete
    7. if you were there post the logs....

    8. A) Personal decision to avoid risk is embarassing for an "elite pvp" corp

      B) Good players don't, james don't, agents don't, smart people don't. Only morons smack-talk.

      C) Aliosis II (probably you), who spent 50.000.000 ISK because he was unware of obvious high sec mechanics, and because he was clueless about his enemy.

      Please provide evidence of James tears, or you're full of it.

      The butthurt is strong with this one.

    9. Yeah these BL guys are far too easy to troll. They must have sand in their sensitive vaginas :laugh:

    10. In eve has James 315 actually done pvp 1 v 1 against a player who's of similar skills and experience? Or does he just take the easy way out and use mechanics in the game to annoy a large cross section of eve players

    11. @anon 11:24P: I see you followed through on that thread on the EVE-O forums...thanks! :D

      I, too, contributed to your thread.

    12. Of course. What did you think of my suggested changes to the NPC corps? (in that awoxing would be allowed...but repeatedly doing so would cause you to lose faction standing to the point you are transferred to your factions pirate corp rivals (ie Blood raider, guristas, guardian angels etc)

      To other New order, as I am trying to get CCP to take the thread serious in the hope they concider making the changes and making High sec that little less safe, I request that you do not troll it and as a result, get it locked.

      I'm trying to get a change you want implimented or at least concidered. Help out with constructive posts and suggestions on how it would work without being exploited against newbie pilots (If there is a option that it could be used to grief trial accounts and newbs, CCP would not concider it then and we'd be stuck with even more high sec nerfs and the miners will win) and please...jokes about it yes...but nothing that will get the thread locked by CCP.

    13. My suggestion would be first 30 days stays as is and you are in whatever NPC corp you would normally be in as a nooby that has war dec/AWOX protection.

      After 30 days (if you don't voluntarily leave sooner), you are dumped into a secondary faction based (but not faction warfare) NPC corp that can we wardecced. Of course, such a corp would probably be big enough that only rich corps/alliances could afford a war dec, and that would be really bad news to people who don't want to PvP. I doubt CCP would ever let NPC corp members freely attack each other, even with a sec status hit/auto transfer out to a pirate NPC corp once your sec status is too low. CCP doesn't want to drive carebears from the game, nor should they.

      You heard it people, James 315 is a carebear.

      Delete
    15. Sorry but carebears don't create content, no amount of misunderstanding of Trask's sentence can change that.

      Delete
    16. You are wrong if carebears didn't create content you wouldn't have anything to gank.

      That's like saying: 'you need to study more history if you think the Nazis committed the Holocaust'. There's just no arguing with you revisionists.

    4. So Alana you don't believe in the holocaust. You should have been a Jew in Germany in the late 1930s.

    5. Now, after those two comments, anyone bold enough to affirm that carebears who hate the New Order have a functioning brain?

  8. We demand more form our savior of High-Sec! The miner community is thoroughly displeased with your obvious disinterest in standing up and "filling the shoes" of the station you have so dearly fought for. Do you not believe in the cause of the New Order? How can "cut-n-run' with the whole of hi-sec mining hanging in the brink!!!!! You have done nothing but validate that you are not the savior of High-Sec nor fit for the station which you have attained. You have allowed a "null-sec" take over high-sec mining without even standing up for the convictions of the order or your Rank. We are ashamed of you!! You must defend hi-sec, at all costs, from the incursions of illegal miners and sometimes that is going to come at personal risk and that is expected of you and your station!

    Now, strap-it on , pull up your pants and Fight for the survival of high-sec!!

    1. Foolish one. James 315 has defeated the carebear using the carebear's favorite tool when faced with a wardec.

      If you want to see better PvP, then ask CCP to eliminate this game mechanic.

  13. I thought dropping corp surrendered the war. Is this not the case? Or is it the rapid reforming that is the exploit?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There is no exploit here. Dropping from the one-man corp effectively dissolves the corp and invalidates the war. When the corp is reformed, the war no longer exists. It is, admittedly, a very silly tactic. James draws attention to it by (ab)using it, in the same way that Dec Shield abused war transferring to show how silly that mechanic was.

    2. Thank you, that has answered my question.

  14. Here's a link to explain - http://www.minerbumping.com/2012/09/experimental-fun-times-corp-wins-its.html

    James 315 is a master of the "way of no-sword" style of fighting as described here - http://theunboundedspirit.com/the-way-of-no-sword/ - for the record, he's also a master of the "way of sword" and "the way of anti-matter" fighting styles.

  16. Wouldn't all this mean that James is not the master of this "skill" but that the miners and carebears are? They were, afterall, doing the same things well before James started.
