Alexis Mayfield > heh, gorila vengaza is now a member of the conference eliteThe big story this Christmas was rebel leader Gorila Vengaza's stunning decision to join the New Order and give our Agents temporary--but glorious--control of the Anti-Ganking channel. However, that was not the only Christmas miracle to take place. At the same time Gorila was making his move, another rebel leader, JTClone Ares, was at the center of his own story.
JTClone Ares > yes
JTClone Ares > dont worry
JTClone Ares > you will be hearing the entire story once I talk with a friend
JTClone Ares > he owns a blog so
Alexis Mayfield > ... you mean james 315?
JTClone Ares > no
JTClone Ares > not that faggot
JTClone Ares got his start as the CEO of a highsec mining fail-corp called Damned Defeat. He encouraged new EVE players to concentrate entirely on mining. Disastrously, he also encouraged them to disobey the Code. Before long, New Order Agents (and future martyrs) Fighter Jets GuitarSolo and Jerry Rin awoxed Damned Defeat.
Even after learning that awoxers were in corp and slaughtering his miners, JTClone ignored the attacks. He simply told the awoxers not to kill his corp members. Then JTClone announced he was going AFK so he could watch "Godzilla" at a local movie theater. Incredibly, he even told the miners to keep mining while he was away. The miners followed their leader's advice and kept getting killed. When JTClone returned, he was outraged, but somehow got tricked into giving control of all Damned Defeat corp stock to our Agents. JTClone quit in a huff.
JTClone's hatred toward the New Order grew. He created new corporations, each one a failure. Now a fanatic anti-Order rebel, he began recording "inspirational" speeches against the Code.
After each defeat, JTClone reinvented himself and took advantage of more newbies who were unfamiliar with his previous antics. JTClone added a quote from Albert Einstein to his bio. To clarify, JTClone thinks of himself as the great spirit, and the New Order as the mediocre minds. (This often confuses those with knowledge of JTClone's past.)
Like TDD Dominaters, JTClone benefited from waves of new EVE players who didn't read MinerBumping and simply wanted a newbie-friendly corp to join. He persuaded dozens of newbies to join his corp. With a new flock of miners at his beck and call, JTClone became one of the most well known leaders of the anti-Order resistance movement. He created an alliance, The Clone Republic, and vowed to one day figure out how to stop the New Order.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > o/Two days before Christmas, JTClone was approached by a pair of his fellow anti-Order rebels. Their names were TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet and Captain Rick Tyson. They expressed an interest in joining the growing ranks of The Clone Republic alliance.
JTClone Ares > o/
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I've seen you around before in anti-ganking and such
JTClone Ares > yeah
JTClone Ares > i tend to get around when i am in the mood
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > my friends and I have been working on a few plans against CODE., but we could use a bit of backup when the time comes
JTClone Ares > ah so allies?
JTClone Ares > normally what ends up happening is that you arent the first corp that has asked to merge with my corpJTClone explained that his alliance wasn't for a bunch of solo miners. He specialized in fleet ops. Fleets with two or even more members! Clearly, the man was building an army.
JTClone Ares > I will treat everyone in my corp the same and everyone has a say but i do have the final say in almost anything of a large scale design
JTClone Ares > we dont do solo teamwork and we do decided to do fleet ops when everyone is online
JTClone Ares > or try to get 2+ man fleets
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > perhaps i should tell you a bit about what we're working on so that you can judge for yourself if you think we're a good fitTheInternet revealed a shocking secret: He had a high-level spy in the ranks of the New Order. If all went according to the rebels' plan, the New Order would be in great peril.
JTClone Ares > np
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > We're running agents within CODE that have access to high level info and we're working on a plan to disband the alliance entirely
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > you can't tell anybody
JTClone Ares > no worries
JTClone Ares > i tend to keep the info to myself
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > we were hoping to work with a high profile invididual such as yourself, as part of the overall plan that we're working on will likely require that, given one of the likely contingenciesThe rebels were hoping to enlist JTClone, because he's an anti-Order celebrity. It was the moment JTClone had been waiting for. All rebels hope that "someone else" will do something to stop the New Order. Now JTClone was in a private convo with two someone elses.
JTClone Ares > okay
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I hope to secure a relationship with somebody like you well in advance of something like that becoming necessary
Captain Rick Tyson > we'll need a big name to spearhead it. it will draw people in in the end, right?
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i think we've got a damm good shot here
JTClone Ares > hmmBut JTClone was wary. It seemed too good to be true. He'd already been tricked by New Order Agents before. He warned TheInternet not to stab him in the back. Luckily, TheInternet had honour.
JTClone Ares > just to fore warn you
JTClone Ares > if i am double crossed I am not so nice afterwards. and I have already proved a few times
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i'm an honorable man, my word is my bond
JTClone Ares > your word your bond. You break it I burn the bridge
JTClone Ares > my honor and your honor
JTClone Ares > oh and just to let you knowJTClone also explained how he preferred to operate. He likes to sit back and let things happen, basically. No wonder he's so highly regarded among the rebels--the man is a master strategist!
JTClone Ares > like an FYI
JTClone Ares > I prefer it if my enemies came to me and I wont go hunting to find people do to the fact i like to keep the control of the battlefield
JTClone Ares > never the other way around
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > like the fisherman spider
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > smart
JTClone Ares > I have played way to many tatic games to understand the art of war as well as few strategies I have yet to use
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i'm glad that you will help us, i think this will go wellAfter carefully weighing his options, the reincarnation of Sun Tzu decided he was willing to join the conspiracy, on the condition that it wasn't all just a huge scam with himself as the victim. Now the game was afoot. Everything was set to destroy the New Order by Christmas.
JTClone Ares > so now the question is
JTClone Ares > when shall we start
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > this will be run in stages
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > the first gift for CODE will be a little christmas present if all goes according to plan
JTClone Ares > just aslong as i am not played by anyone I will be fine
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > excellent, looking forward to our partnership on this
