Previously, on MinerBumping... Isanamo's resident Anti-Ganker Akmaund Askiras sought a decisive engagement with the mighty CODE. alliance--and he got one. Unfortunately for Akmaund, the result was a total victory for CODE.
Akmaund's boasting was cut short when his Omen was ganked. This raised, yet again, the classic question that no Anti-Ganker has ever been able to answer: Why should miners trust Anti-Gankers to protect them, when the Anti-Gankers can't even protect their own ships?
Akmaund refused to accept his humiliating defeat. He proudly linked the killmail of one of the Catalysts that had just succeeded in ganking him.
Akmaund would have been well served to graciously accept defeat, respectfully ask the Agents for advice, and quietly purchase a mining permit. He failed to do any of those things.
Akmaund knew that his career as an anti-Code rebel wouldn't go anywhere if he let things stand as they were. He had to go all-in and somehow pull off a victory.
Suddenly, a thought occurred to Akmaund: What about the kill rights he'd just gotten on the Agents who ganked him? Those kill rights had to be worth something, right?
Now Akmaund had his answer: The destruction of his prized ship was actually a devious gambit--part of an elaborate master plan.
According to the Anti-Ganker, he didn't lose the battle. It just really, really, really looked like he did.
And if anyone had trouble untangling his twisted logic, Akmaund could simply brag about phantom kills against CODE.
Earlier, Akmaund had attempted to bolster his credibility by claiming he'd been an EVE player for 10 years. Now he was a newbie. His loss was merely a youthful indiscretion.
Akmaund assumed that carebears thought of Anti-Gankers as heroes. Yet no one in Isanamo local said a word in his favor. Instead, he was hounded by Agents of the New Order. Frustrated and angry, Akmaund sought an escape from the conversation.
Suddenly, Akmaund had an epiphany. He didn't need to impress members of CODE.; it was the Anti-Gankers whose opinions of him mattered. After all, his intention was to become their leader. And so Akmaund retreated back to the Anti-Ganking channel:
Akmaund reported his so-called victory to the Anti-Gankers. At last, he hoped, he'd get the respect and encouragement that Isanamo local so cruelly withheld from him.
But then then unthinkable occurred: The Anti-Gankers mocked him, too!
