Lilliana Tanaka > Some of them are genuinely afraid of you.The lieutenant in charge of MRM's Gelhan forces was Lilliana Tanaka. She engaged in a debate with Kalorned in advance of the wardec. The debate went about as you'd expect.
Kalorned > They shouldn't be, if they took some time to understand certain mechanics
Kalorned > It always falls back to the leadership though
Kalorned > Corp leadership failures cause the new players to be scared
Kalorned > What I'm getting at is your corp is bad and you should feel bad
Lilliana Tanaka > You bump miners... and mince words. It's cute. Don't get me wrong. But don't overplay your hand.By this point, Kalorned's earlier lessons about -10 security status alts and wardec mechanics was beginning to sink in. The miners of MRM no longer had confidence that the wardec would turn the tide in their favor.
Captain BrewSir > Kalorned since you'r big on educate, why do you gank alphas with ventures?
Kalorned > Captain BrewSir to educate them
Captain BrewSir > Kalorned i can fly skiff, alphas can fly only ventures, it's not education.Since they were unable to defeat our Agent in combat or by using EVE game mechanics, the only remaining option was to talk Kalorned out of enforcing the Code.
Kalorned > Captain BrewSir it is education - they are learning not to fly ventures
Captain BrewSir > Kalorned nope, it's just douchebagery
Kalorned > If they can't take away these very basic lessions they shouldn't be playing the game
Lilliana Tanaka > That's for you to decide?
Kalorned > Yes
Lilliana Tanaka > So you're saying, Kalorned gets to pick who can and can't play EvE Online...The miners had convinced themselves that Kalorned was the bad guy. As time went on, though, the evidence continued to accumulate--in the other direction.
Kalorned > The choice is ultimately up to them
Kalorned > They can learn from their misfourtoune and continue playing
Lilliana Tanaka > Uh huh
Kalorned > Otherwise they're going to have a bad time and probably quit
Menomine Hekki > so you will just drop corp over and over/Nevertheless, MRM carebears still couldn't understand why our Agent was able to prevail while so heavily outnumbered. He must be cheating.
Kalorned > Yes of course
Menomine Hekki > that thing against ccp regulations?
Kalorned > It's fine, don't worry about it friend
Captain BrewSir > Menomine Hekki so is multibox software, but pssst
Menomine Hekki > huh ill have to ask ccp about this
Lilliana Tanaka > Eh, I don't care if CCP nails you or not.Our Agent was unshakable. He stood by the principles that have so radically transformed highsec for the better these past five years.
Lilliana Tanaka > But if you really cared about these miners you've harassed
Lilliana Tanaka > your boys will let them have a few good fights.
Lilliana Tanaka > Show them that pvp can be fun, and they don't need to hide on the indy side
Kalorned > I will duel anyone anytime anywhere in any ship, they simply must prove their honor
Georgia B Dixie > They need to make PVP fun for themselves IMOA secret Code supporter, Georgia B Dixie, rejoined the Gelhan conversation. When she made her point of view known, she was greeted with suspicion.
Georgia B Dixie > Kalorned is providing an opportunity for them to do that, IMO he should be thanked for that
Georgia B Dixie > It's content creation at the end of the day
Lilliana Tanaka > Eh, it's whatever. I don't buy your bullshit
Lilliana Tanaka > You don't give a shit about anyone but your bros, and anything but your content.
Lord Al'Akir > yeah thats a long time to be a toolJust when it seemed that the miners of MRM were about to give up on the Gelhan system entirely, something unexpected occurred: Kalorned vanished. Georgia had good reason to believe that Kalorned had gone out of town and was taking a vacation from EVE; MRM carebears hoped that their petitions had finally been answered. Regardless, Gelhan went quiet, and MRM slowly crept out of their dens to resume mining.
Lord Al'Akir > i mean the guy is a tool runs around hi sec picking weak targets and gets his kicks pissing people off
Kalorned > It's almost as if you haven't paid attention to any of the discussion up to this point
Lord Al'Akir > people gank because they want to ruin someone elses day
Had Mission Ready Mining won after all?
Out of nowhere, a Machariel appeared and started bumping miners out of the ice anomaly.
It was Georgia B Dixie! In Kalorned's absence, the bumper decided to take up the mantle of New Order Agent and enforce the Code.
MRM miner Baiba Salaspils was taken aback. It was like that Kalorned nightmare all over again!
At first, the miners were in denial. Surely the bumper would go away if asked nicely. Surely this wouldn't be another long, drawn-out campaign. But Baiba's private convo with Georgia went nowhere.
The Code enforcement persisted. It seemed the rebellious miners of the Gelhan system were in for a bumpy ride.
To be continued...
