Ore Buyback, Code Payback, Part 4

Previously, on MinerBumping... A series of disasters struck The Sky Gods Fortune, a highsec industrial corporation. CEO Scoot Sollete faced the challenge of a lifetime as multiple crises arose simultaneously. His only good fortune came in the form of TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet, whom he met the day before and promoted to full director status.

The two most urgent problems were infiltrators and a wardec from a New Order-aligned corp. It was time to convene the war council. It consisted of Scoot and his most trusted advisor, TheInternet. At TheInternet's suggestion, the circle of trust wouldn't be widened for now.
Scoot Sollete > so internet, do you know anything about the alliance on how they operate? do they actually pew pew?
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Well their CEO's KB is pretty gnarly tbh
Scoot Sollete > gnarly like as in?
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > he seems to be fairly aggressive toward freighter pilots such as myself lol
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > A bit disturbing to see all those freighter KMs
It was as Scoot feared: The New Order corp was formidable. As a freighter pilot, TheInternet understood well the threat posed by such accomplished gankers.
Scoot Sollete > we can make a POS that we can use for war safety
Scoot Sollete > just place guns and hardeners
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > that's actually a really good idea, I doubt that these guys are capable of pos bashsing
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Although we do have time to get a POS up before the war goes live, in any case
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > a war-POS :D
Gradually, a war plan came together. The centerpiece of their strategy would be to quickly construct a "war-POS", capable of withstanding even the most fearsome attack. Having decided on that, the war council turned to discussion of the spies in their midst. TheInternet carefully considered what he knew.
Scoot Sollete > Vivi Flamez you okay?
Vivi Flamez > so far
Scoot Sollete > not tramatized?
Vivi Flamez > with that jerk kinda
Vivi Flamez > but i am mining
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > Vivi Flamez could be the leak
Scoot Sollete > i know
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > My suggestion would be that Vivi is a security threat, and should be kicked for 24 hours
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > until we have the POS up
Scoot Sollete > no.
Scoot Sollete > lets play it through.
TheInternet urged the expulsion of one of the corp's miners. Scoot had his suspicions as well, but he would not take action against the miner. Appearances mattered. On the eve of war, the corp needed to look strong and unified.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I'm going to check with one of my merc contracts to get some advice on the situation btw
Scoot Sollete > kk
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > contacts*
Scoot Sollete > it'd be nice if they were in this chat too
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > the guy who taught me about security and stuff, and helped me out with killing that one scammer's orca, he's not online atm
Now it was time for TheInternet to draw upon his extensive Rolodex of contacts. He recommended the circle of trust be widened to bring in Kaalatas Nebunaesa as a security consultant.
Scoot Sollete > mkay
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > I'll bounce the situation off of him if he comes online though
Scoot Sollete > so much shit
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > did they contact you again?
Scoot Sollete > no
Scoot Sollete > just this whole situation
Since TheInternet vouched for him, Scoot agreed to trust Kaalatas. Ultimately, Kaalatas was brought into the corp as its newest member. With steady, experienced hands at the helm of the corp, the war council shifted their attention back to the war-POS.
Scoot Sollete > Jita >> Saisio (224000 m³) (Courier) for you internet
Scoot didn't have much money, but he was willing to put it all on the line for the corp. He invested 760 million isk into the war-POS and its modules. Since TheInternet was a freighter pilot, Scoot contracted all the assets over to him so that TheInternet could move them to the corp HQ.

Everything went fine at first, but then TheInternet sent Scoot an urgent message: A new crisis had emerged!

The crisis came in the form of Siegfried Cohenberg, a deadly freighter bumper. TheInternet reported that his freighter--now containing the war-POS--was being held hostage by Siegfried. At any moment, the New Order wardec corp could kill him. TheInternet invited Scoot and Siegfried onto TeamSpeak to negotiate. A recording of this conversation is not available, but the best sources say that no torture was involved.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i paid him 200m but he hasnt let me go yet
Scoot Sollete > he's a fucking ass wipe
Scoot Sollete > should've used red frog
Scoot Sollete > tbh
Siegfried was still in TeamSpeak, awaiting an answer. Scoot and TheInternet cursed their terrible luck.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i dont have the rest of the ISK
Scoot Sollete > same
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > i need 400m
Scoot Sollete > i don't have it. honestly.
TheInternet TweepsOnline TheInternet > we're going to be out a lot of ISK if we can't come up with 400m more guys
TheInternet was desperate for cash. It was the only way to save the war-POS. Scoot put everything he had into the war-POS. Now it, and the corp's future, were both at risk. And time was running out.

Next: The thrilling conclusion!


  1. More complications!
    Can anything save Scoot now?
    Stay tuned to find out!

  2. TheInternet invited Scoot and Siegfried onto TeamSpeak to negotiate. A recording of this conversation is not available, but the best sources say that no torture was involved.

    Oh to be a fly on the wall during these tense negotiations!

    1. Nice try Fake Ming, but I'm going to have to declare you "subhuman"

  3. meh seems made up

  4. Will TheInternet make it out of that corp alive?!?! Oh, the suspense!

  5. Literal edge of my seat :) :)

  6. Blah, My life has gone so down hill since I lost my spot on the top 10 douche bag list. I'm also still AFK mining to work off that 11B isk I was scammed out of. Now what will the rest of my fellow nazi's will think of me?

    1. The code ALWAYS scams and loses!!! ALWAYS!!!

    2. meh, Fake Ming seems made up

    3. Carebears and weird stuff about gay sex. Sounds pretty normal to me!

    4. You fool... This thread is mine, and you "subhuman" self dares post here. Anom 11:43 has officially made the list of undesirables in our New Order.

  7. As an agent of the New Order of Hitler I deem this article made up and "subhuman" nand will be dealt with in accordance to the Final Solution.

    1. I give this Ming a solid 10/10. My way of thinking :)

  8. Man so many fake Mings I am going to tell my mommy on all of you and you gonna be in trouble.

  9. Such tryharding, but none copy my grace and diction, nor the fine and unflappable demeanor of an Agent of the New Order.

    Keep trying carebears, keep trying.

    1. But you're not an agent. All you did was roll over, buy a permit, and give James $20 bucks worth of isk. You don't gank or enforce the code. You're just some lame troll who ruined the comment section on a decent website.

    2. And you're some random Anon who hasn't read the Code, doesn't know what it says, and therefore isn't qualified to have an opinion one way or the other.

      Get back to me when you've read it, and then we'll talk.

    3. Anom @ 1:15

      Your tears are glorious.

      If you even bothered reading the code you would know that one can call themselves an agent if they provide monetary support, if not willing, or can not provide military support.

      Also who is to say he doesn't have a ganking/bumping alt he uses to enforce the code? If your going to troll at least put some effort in to it.

    4. Ming, for real dawg, you gotta share some of the tears. You're hogging more than your fair share. ^.^

      WTB personal hatesquad. PM with offers/tears.

    5. I apologize 290xanaots.

      It is not my intention to hog all the tears. I'll back off a little bit and allow other Agents to get in on the enforcement action.

  10. How can I have grace if I was scammed out of 11B isk, and need to AFK mine to get it all back?

  11. We all know that fake Ming is just butthurt -=M=-
    He makes us lol.
    At him not with him.
    Such impotence

    1. Hate to break it to you, but none of Ming-senpai's new fanboys are me. Everyone knows that I only post under the -=M=- tag, because I keep on saying that I do and if I repeat something frequently enough it becomes true. Just like how I simultaneously believe that giving money to anyone is falling for a scam, but I have been reimbursing all miners featured on minerbumping for the last couple of years, but I've never been scammed.

      Ming, don't listen to all the these newcomers, I was here long before they were! I was trying to get your attention through attempted trolling long before they were around! They'll be gone in a week, but what I feel for you...what I feel for you is forever.

      *throws flowers at Ming*
      *gently touches Ming's head*


    2. One day M and Ming will finally admit there feelings for each other and it'll pan out something like this


    3. Really it seems more like this to me. Ming made the mistake of playing with M for a bit and countertrolling, now M is all obsessed and jealous because Ming is sowing his wild enforcement oats with some of our other minerbumping Anons.

      M, trolling you was only ever a fling for Ming. It's probably time to accept that you matter far less to him than he does to you, and try to get over him. I dunno, maybe go jogging with friends, I hear that helps.

    4. @anon1204
      Where feelings?
      There feelings!
      L2 english

  12. As a lawyer and a diehard fake Veers I have to say the fake Mings are somewhat annoying.

  13. This isn't your average everyday anon butt hurt. This is.... advanced butt hurt

    2. Nope, that would just be M shitposting again.
