Previously, on MinerBumping... Self-proclaimed rebel leader Grand Design held court in the Anti-Ganking channel. He was aided by Majestic Smitty Schmiers, a sycophant who was new to the Anti-Ganking "community". As Majestic repeatedly sucked up to everyone and laughed at all of their terrible jokes, one could only wonder if he was a plant.
In addition to proudly linking CONCORD killmails, Grand Design burnished his reputation by sharing classified information.
When he ran out of secrets, Grand Design bragged about the sick burns he was laying down in local. Majestic Smitty lapped it all up.
The normally gloomy mood of the channel gave way to new optimism, thanks to the new recruit. Majestic Smitty made the rebels feel young again, reminding them of when they first joined Anti-Ganking years ago. 'Twas a time when they truly believed they could stop the mighty CODE. alliance by acting like Goofuses in a "private" channel.
Most rebels still inhabit their own little world. For example, to Lucifer SamuelStar, random Anti-Gankers are really important and influential, while The Mittani is no longer relevant.
Thus far, Majestic had brown-nosed and celebrated the greatness of the Anti-Gankers, but he hadn't actually received anything of value from them. Now he remembered why he'd joined the channel in the first place: He was plagued by Agents like Guybertini.
Majestic was confident that the Anti-Gankers would leap into action and help him destroy the New Order. Even if they didn't dispatch an army, surely the AG'ers would at least give him some solid advice.
...Needless to say, Majestic didn't know how Anti-Ganking did things--or didn't do them. At the very first suggestion that someone might be called upon to do something, the rebels started coming up with reasons why nothing would work.
Rather than giving the eager recruit a plan of action or even a word of encouragement, Anti-Gankers transmitted their culture of laziness and helplessness.
After spending more than an hour in Anti-Ganking, Majestic had precious little to show for it. But where else could he go?
It had been a while since Grand Design had puffed himself up, so he resumed bragging. This time, he shared an exciting story about how he'd faced down the Saviour of Highsec himself.
After reading this, I ran a search on my EVE chat log folder. Maybe Grand Design really did bark at me in local one day, while I had another window active? No such luck. The story was completely made up.
Since the Anti-Gankers were unable or unwilling to give Majestic any ideas, the recruit decided to tell them his master plan. Perhaps when they heard it, they'd be inspired enough to join him.
The foundation of Majestic's idea was to spend lots of real money to get people to join his corporation. Yeah, this is gonna go really well.
Grand Design was cautiously optimistic. He could find no flaw in this plan.
And so the session ended for the day. In a twist, Majestic wasn't an undercover CODE. spy with an outrageous persona. He was the real thing--a sheep in sheep's clothing.
Boosted by the promise of free stuff, Majestic's corporation has grown to more than 40 members. If you want to fight against CODE., or if you're simply looking for a good wardec/corp theft opportunity, Majestic's corp might be for you.
