Mike Jinsu > Nice killCovetor pilot Mike Jinsu was terminated by ganker from the mighty CODE. alliance. On the one hand, Mike offered his sincere congratulations to the ganker. On the other hand, the miner also made empty threats and pretended to have powerful friends.
Mike Jinsu > I gotta give you that
Mike Jinsu > But you shouldn't have made enemies with me :)
Mike Jinsu > I got some nice friends
Agent Spine Ripper, the ganker alt of Bing Bangboom, is one of the longest-serving members of New Order Logistics. Bing is an optimist. The miner had offered the equivalent of a "gf", so maybe he'd be willing to buy a mining permit. Spine Ripper invited the miner to a private convo.
Spine Ripper > Hello Citizen!If Bing wanted to play hardball, Mike was more than ready. If necessary, he had powerful friends who were willing to sit around watching him mine all day.
Mike Jinsu > Oh here we go
Spine Ripper > It was only your non-Code compliance that got you killed.
Mike Jinsu > Oh is that right?
Mike Jinsu > So do I really need my battleship friends to protect me when i mine?
Mike Jinsu > Is that how you wanna play
Spine Ripper > they can't protect youMore ambiguity: Mike admitted that the gank was well executed. Yet something seemed to hold him back from embracing the Code.
Mike Jinsu > Of course they can
Spine Ripper > only a permit and following the Code can protect you from us
Mike Jinsu > Huh
Mike Jinsu > From you tiny catalyst
Spine Ripper > My tiny Catalyst has killed thousands.
Mike Jinsu > Yeah cuz you did it smart
Mike Jinsu > Why don't I ask my whole incursion fleet to fight youIt was time to fight. Mike had an entire incursion fleet at his disposal; apparently they were willing to take a break from grinding isk to chase Spine Ripper around an asteroid belt.
Spine Ripper > Ask them
Mike Jinsu > Wanna 1v1 me?
Mike Jinsu > I'm getting my raven
Mike Jinsu > My raven against your catalyst
Spine Ripper > I can't fight long in highsec... the police come... can I send my alt?At the mention of a 1v1, Spine Ripper invited his main character, Bing Bangboom, to join the convo. Bing enjoys 1v1s.
Mike Jinsu > We can duel
Bing Bangboom > duel?
Mike Jinsu > Holy shit
Mike Jinsu > What is with you dumbasses
Mike Jinsu > You think you can make me cough up 10 million
Spine Ripper > only if you want to do PvE in our systemsNow the miner was entering what you might call the "flopping around like a fish out of water" stage of the conversation. Mike couldn't make up his mind whether he had powerful friends, or was willing to engage in a duel himself, or was a defenseless newbie who should be left alone.
Mike Jinsu > They're not your fucking systems
Spine Ripper > technically you are right.
Spine Ripper > They belong to James 315
Mike Jinsu > You sound just like nazis
Mike Jinsu > Wtf is wrong with you
Mike Jinsu > People are just tryna play the game
Spine Ripper > We are law enforcement... have you even read the Code?As an elite PvP'er, Bing was willing to cut Mike a break by dueling him with a mere frigate. Strangely, this scared Mike.
Spine Ripper > www.minerbumping.com
Bing Bangboom > ready to duel
Bing Bangboom > I don't have a Cat... can I bring a frigate?
Mike Jinsu > No I'm not dueling a frigate with a battleship
Mike Jinsu > Why are you people so retarded
Bing Bangboom > OK, thought you wanted to duelBing was a little disappointed. Rebels claim that our Agents don't shoot ships that can shoot back, but whenever one shows a willingness to do so, the rebels run for cover.
Bing Bangboom > guess it was just miner talk
Mike Jinsu > You think you're so big
Bing Bangboom > I'm an Agent of the New Order... so yeah, I am
Bing Bangboom > Are you getting your incursion friends to come guard you mining?Mike went from mixed signals to total confusion. Did he have friends in an incursion fleet? Did he run incursions at all? Was he a miner? Did he want to duel, or did he want to be left in peace?
Mike Jinsu > Why would I tell you?
Mike Jinsu > and why the fuck would I mine when I can run incursions
Mike Jinsu > Fuck off I'll never give you a penny for any bullshit
Bing Bangboom > I don't know... why anyone mines is kind of a mystery to meOne thing was certain: The miner wasn't willing to put his battleship where his mouth was. There would be no duel that day--except with words.
Mike Jinsu > Yeah
Mike Jinsu > Why mine when you can scam noobs
Bing Bangboom > I just showed up for the promised duel. Where is the duel?
Mike Jinsu > No duel
Bing Bangboom > I figured as muchThough Mike suggested that nobody would mine if they could run incursions, the miner insisted that he was an incursion runner.
Bing Bangboom > about as real as your incursion friends.
Mike Jinsu > They're real
Bing Bangboom > no, they're not
Mike Jinsu > Oh yes buddy
Bing Bangboom > Your ore is still out here
Mike Jinsu > Ask Salheim PseradOut of nowhere, Mike invited someone named Kalista Ohu to the convo. Was she his powerful friend--and did Bing stand a chance in a duel against her?
Mike Jinsu > He's an FC for my fleet
Bing Bangboom > He looks like another carebear to me
Mike Jinsu > Oh and what are you
Bing Bangboom > I told you. I'm an Agent of the New Order
Mike Jinsu > Hear that Kalista?
Kalista Ohu > wow u guys really want this shit
