Previously, on MinerBumping... The valiant knights of Sword of the Saviour corp used ganker alts to inflict justice upon some miners. A local rebel named Babylon Balthazarian stirred the system to rebellion, encouraging miners to disobey the Code. She even dared our Agents to wardec her alliance. So they did.
The New Order is the supreme military power in highsec. We prosecute our wars at the time and place of our choosing. In a show of bravado, Balthazarian urged the New Order wardeccers to bring it on.
Agent Trathen knew he was up against a 200+ member alliance. But the odds were in his favor: He had three Agents--and the Code. The bot-aspirant alliance was totally outmatched. Time to attack!
It was an incredible slaughter. Three New Order Agents inflicted a staggering loss upon Balthazarian's alliance. In the space of just a few minutes, they bagged a pair of Skiffs, a couple defense ships, and an Orca, along with a handful of pods. Those six fatal minutes cost the carebears well over a billion isk of damage.
When the dust settled, our Agents offered "GF"s in local. They patiently waited to be congratulated and paid for permits.
However, the initial signs were that Balthazarian's alliance wouldn't see reason.
Maybe the bot-aspirants were in shock. Being killed wasn't a part of their typical routine.
Balthazarian had told our Agents to wardec her alliance. She'd even sent an EVEmail encouraging them to launch an attack. However, when the attack came, Balthazarian didn't have anything to back up her bluff and bluster. She lost a tech I fitted Stabber and abandoned any further effort to protect the alliance. From that point on, she simply smacktalked in local.
Having dragged her alliance into a war that cost them so dearly, Balthazarian was unrepentant.
Nor did Balthazarian appear to have any sympathy for her fellow alliance members--who'd been killed on her watch.
The chickenhawk carebear merely brushed aside the much more expensive losses of others. Noobs lose Orcas; it's the cost of war.
Did the other members of the alliance harbor any resentment toward Balthazarian for bringing disaster upon them? On the surface, they were a united front.
But behind the scenes, not everyone was thrilled with Balthazarian's contribution--or lack thereof--to the alliance.
Balthazarian's own corp, Industrial War Machine LLC, was among those who decided to quit the alliance. Agent Alana Charen-Teng informed the alliance leader that the New Order's beef was with Balthazarian. Judging from the reply mail, Balthazarian wasn't held in high esteem.
In the end, Balthazarian's corp had to go it alone. No longer would they receive the benefits of being in an alliance.
As for Babylon Balthazarian herself, she was cast out and became a pariah. Such is the fate of all who dare to challenge the New Order's awesome power.
