Previously, on MinerBumping... Controversy! Ganked Covetor pilot Richard The-Crusader attempted to evade responsibility for losing his unlicensed mining vessel. As our Agents closed in, Richard tried to shift the blame for his conduct in every direction he could think of.
It all came down to 10 million isk. Richard could have easily transferred the money to any of the Agents in the convo. But he refused--out of "principle", no doubt.
Despite confessing that his son created his character in February 2018, Richard claimed that he should be treated as a new player.
The miner's story continued to evolve--and quickly.
Our heroes had difficulty keeping up with Richard's story. First he wanted the gank to happen, then the gank was good, then it was bad because his son was a new player, then... So many words, but so little isk.
Richard introduced yet another plot twist. On the one hand, he wanted his son to be ganked for the crime of flying an unlicensed Covetor. On the other hand, Richard hoped that this would lead to an invite from a corp that teaches people not to gank miners.
The different threads of Richard's story laid tangled together in a heap. At the heart of it all: Bot-aspirancy.
In an effort to teach his son not to be exploited by bullies, Richard was perfectly content to see him join a "slave labor corp". Because they're so welcoming.
Of course, the most friendly, welcoming people in EVE are the Agents of the New Order. For some reason, Richard didn't want his son to have anything to do with the mighty CODE. alliance. What was he hiding?
It was only a matter of time before Richard justified his crimes by claiming that EVE needs new players. Actually, it does not. EVE doesn't need new players; it needs good players.
...And the only way people get good at EVE is through the Code.
Just when it appeared things couldn't get any worse, Richard made a startling confession:
...It was his plan all along to bore his son into becoming a better player!
To be continued...
