There are many tools available to the good highsec players: Suicide ganking, bumping, awoxing, wardecs, and the like. Once upon a time, can-flipping was also common, but it was nerfed into oblivion. But good highsec players adapt. Among them: Agent Bing Bangboom.
Bing loved can-flipping. He loved it so much that he got into trouble with his carebear-minded former alliance, U.S.A.T.O, which scolded him for engaging in PvP. As an Agent of the New Order, Bing has spent the past several months wardeccing, in a one-man crusade to encourage U.S.A.T.O to surrender to the Code. They fled highsec to live in a wormhole instead. But Bing followed them.
Bing located the wormhole's highsec entrance and used his authority as an Agent to pursue the bot-aspirants to their w-space sanctuary.
When he discovered that the carebears had neglected to power their POS shields, Bing brought the wrath of the Order down upon them. It wasn't pretty.
A single Agent had forced the alliance from highsec. Now he was casually destroying all of their stuff. Bing hoped that this demonstration of the Code's power would show them the folly of their ways.
Bing had nothing but love for the members of his former alliance. His only quarrel was with their misguided leadership.
Agents of the New Order rejoiced when they read Bing's latest report. The leadership of U.S.A.T.O was less pleased. But just who does lead the U.S.A.T.O alliance?
Her name is liberty. Her bio is a testament to Bing's hard work over the past year.
Believe it or not, liberty is the CEO of U-S-A-T-O PRIME, the main corporation of the alliance. Even the corporation description gives Bing (and yours truly) a shout-out.
And yes, the alliance description, too. Not many "pirates" can claim to hold such a distinction. It's like being one of the few people who have a country named after them.
Because I am merciful, I'll show you the picture that liberty hosted on imgur and keeps linking everywhere, so you don't have to type it into your web browser:
It's a badly-made anti-Order meme. Worse yet, it's an old badly-made anti-Order meme. It was made by someone else and first spotted all the way back in February.
Needless to say, I love the concept of liberty much more than the EVE player named "liberty". But I hate to see senseless bloodshed overtake anyone who could be convinced by diplomacy to join the New Order family.
Hand of friendship status: Extended. Granted, liberty's bio and her corp/alliance descriptions suggested she carried some baggage. After having her alliance equipment trashed by Bing Bangboom, maybe she would be in a more pliable mood. It was time to put liberty's leadership capabilities to the test.
