Previously, on MinerBumping... Agent Alt 00 launched a crusade against the Orca miners infesting Nakugard's asteroid belts and ice anomalies. Alt's fleet of Catalysts successfully attacked a Russian Orca. Following a heated discussion in the their private channel, the Russian corporation withdrew from Nakugard.
Nevertheless, Nakugard was still plagued by a swarm of Russian-owned bots mining in heavily tanked Orcas. It was time, at last, for Alt 00 to unleash the power of the Talos fleet. (It's not gratuitous to repeatedly use a screenshot when it looks this good.)
Only an hour after Alt's Catalyst fleet ganked the previous Orca, the Taloses were dropped on Serg Lion's Orca. Maybe two dead Orcas would be enough to get these miners' attention.
Nine Taloses were used in this gank. Because Serg Lion was tanking some NPCs, Alt was able to hold a ganker in reserve...
...To eliminate the miner's pod. Serg Lion's implants were no more.
To ensure that the Orca's pod would be eliminated, Alt Izanami used a special smartbombing cruiser fit. An Agent after my own heart!
The wreck of Serg Lion's Orca was an extraordinary sight. In barely more than an hour, two Orca miners had been killed in Nakugard. Yet the fleet of Orca bots did not flinch. They remained in the system, mining away like it was business as usual.
But this was no ordinary day. The heroic Taloses rode again.
In the very heart of the Nakugard ice anomaly arose a terrific explosion. A flash of light shone forth--the light of the Code.
Roz Ice's Orca had quite a tank, but it could not withstand the gank fleet's firepower--or Alt 00's determination.
Now, with three dead Orcas in Nakugard, something marvelous took place:
The bot speaks.
They say that nothing succeeds like success. Having witnessed three times what Alt 00 was capable of, the Nakugard locals started to warm up to her. Though the bots remained cold.
Alt 00 enabled Google Translate to ensure that Roz Ice was not, in fact, asking to buy a mining permit from her.
The rebellious Orca botters were stubborn. Alt 00 anticipated this. She never intended to win a quick victory. Our Agent's plan, all along, was to settle in for a long war. She knew it would be a test of wills. And no one has more willpower than an Agent of the New Order of Highsec.
