Bing Bangboom > Hello Citizen!Mike and Kalista had an easy rapport, bouncing one-liners off each other like they were on a late-night talk show. Obviously Kalista was Mike's powerful incursion fleet friend.
Kalista Ohu > this is worser then the virus alert u get in your web browser
Mike Jinsu > Ikr
Kalista Ohu > Bing Bangboom 1010110100
Kalista Ohu > do u compute?
Bing Bangboom > I only came because Mike said he wanted to duel but now he's decided to not.Bing was still interested in taking Mike up on his offer for a duel; he was even willing to let Kalista tag-in for her friend. Unfortunately, Kalista didn't have time.
Bing Bangboom > He said you would guard him mining though.
Kalista Ohu > would duel but yea
Kalista Ohu > busy dont got time to bs around with bs
Mike Jinsu > I didn't say kalista would guard me...Then the other shoe dropped. Kalista wasn't Mike's powerful friend after all. No, she was merely an acquaintance. Acquaintances don't protect each other. They don't do much of anything for each other, really.
Mike Jinsu > I said my friends would
Mike Jinsu > Kalista just met me
Bing Bangboom > ah, another carebearAgent Bing had long suspected that Mike didn't actually have any friends. The fact that the miner had invited a mere acquaintance into the chat seemed to confirm this. Where did Mike meet Kalista, anyway? The "Help" channel?
Mike Jinsu > Wtf is with you and carebears
Kalista Ohu > i refuse to pay for something that is already free
Bing Bangboom > where are your friends then?
Mike Jinsu > Oh they're too busy to deal with fake people
Bing Bangboom > everyone pays... eventually. Or they quitThough Kalista wouldn't put a ship on the line for someone she'd just met, she was willing to request that Bing allow Mike to mine.
Mike Jinsu > You russians are gay as shit
Kalista Ohu > hes new af can u just let him play the fing game already lmao
Bing Bangboom > He only has to buy a permit and follow the Code
Kalista Ohu > worser then the guy that got banned from co2Clearly, Mike needed help. But all Kalista would do is talk. As it turned out, Bing was a better friend to Mike than Kalista was--at least he was willing to sell the miner a permit.
Kalista Ohu > follow me ass
Kalista Ohu > let him mine how about that
Bing Bangboom > Someone as helpless as himself should bow to the power of Highsec.
Mike Jinsu > Oh 0.6 isn't really highsec
Kalista Ohu > bow to pl and nc 1Mike's acquaintance invoked the authority of Pandemic Legion and some entity apparently named Northern Coalition One. But in highsec, it's the mighty CODE. alliance that everyone needs to worry about.
Kalista Ohu > and then we can negociate!
Mike Jinsu > what are pl and nc 1
Bing Bangboom > Those alliances have no power in highsec. Here it's us.
Mike Jinsu > oh
Bing Bangboom > He CAN mine. He just has to buy a permit and follow the Code.Mike lost faith in his acquaintance's ability to negotiate on his behalf for a peaceful resolution (i.e., one that didn't require the bot-aspirant to part with any of his precious isk). The only alternative left--other than the powerful incursion friends he'd so far declined to call in--was to file a petition with anyone still working for CCP.
Kalista Ohu > bamg ccp doesnt require "permit" to mine
Bing Bangboom > true
Bing Bangboom > we do
Mike Jinsu > I'm gonna contact them
Bing Bangboom > please do
Bing Bangboom > Kill: Mike Jinsu (Covetor)Mike's denials fell flat. Carebears, when your pod gets killed by one of our Agents, that's prima facie evidence that you were AFK.
Bing Bangboom > just to be sure you see what he was mining in
Bing Bangboom > Kill: Mike Jinsu (Capsule) and he was AFK
Mike Jinsu > I wasn't afk lol
Bing Bangboom > Its impossible to catch a pod that isn't AFK
Mike Jinsu > WellThe miner smugly noted that he doesn't use implants due to the ever-present threat of our gankers. In a sense, this is an even bigger victory for the Code than when our gankers destroy an expensive pod: The carebear didn't even get to use any implants in the first place.
Mike Jinsu > I was trying to go to an ore site
Mike Jinsu > and was waiting for my drones to come
Mike Jinsu > when you popped up
Bing Bangboom > ta dah!
Mike Jinsu > I don't use implants for this EXACT reason
Bing Bangboom > ah...Bing effortlessly demolished all of Mike's excuses. Then our Agent noticed that Kalista had been silent for a while.
Bing Bangboom > how about the Covetor?
Mike Jinsu > Don't care
Mike Jinsu > it's only 30 mil
Bing Bangboom > which is more than 10 million... just sayin'
Mike Jinsu > I'll just mine somewhere else FOR FREE
Mike Jinsu > Smart ons
Bing Bangboom > Your friend leftThe "powerful acquaintance in highsec" gambit had failed. Now it was time for Bing to close in for the sale. Would the miner be smart enough--or feel helpless enough--to buy a mining permit?
Mike Jinsu > i know and hes not my friend
Bing Bangboom > I saw that. He wouldn't even guard you mining.
Mike Jinsu > I didn't ask him to
Mike Jinsu > and I wouldn't
