The Best Revenge, Part 49

Previously, on MinerBumping... aiva naali aka FighterJets GuitarSolo 1000Years resumed his duties as Lead Strategist of the Imperium. After he finished restructuring the Imperium's fleet command system, aiva gave birth to a revolutionary new concept: The Five Crowns.

aiva was absolutely certain that he would lead the Imperium to victory and conquer all of nullsec; it was as good as done. The real question was, what happened after the Imperium controlled the entirety of nullsec? At that point, the primary challenge would be to maintain internal control. That's where the Five Crowns came in.

To ensure that nullsec remained unified under Goon rule, there needed to be some way of resolving disputes. To aiva, the answer was obvious: Create a minigame with 103-player teams trapped in 5 systems, attempting to use rookie ships to either destroy a citadel or build a titan.

Ridiculous? Sure. Totally impracticable? Of course. But, to be honest, the Five Crowns is still probably better than FozzieSov.

To be sure, the Five Crowns was a work in progress. But aiva could continue to perfect the concept while he waited for the war with Pandemic Horde to be won.

...Or the war with Test Alliance Please Ignore.

Wait, did aiva just say he was going to resign as Lead Strategist of the Imperium?

The Five Crowns was a versatile dispute resolution system. Any matter could be submitted a game of the Five Crowns. If two people had a beef, they'd simply gather 102 friends each and try to build a titan from rookie ships.

aiva was looking forward to the day that he could resign from his position as the political leader of the Imperium. But he would remain in command as long as the Imperium needed him.

On the other hand, it would be very difficult for The Mittani to find someone who could replace aiva.

aiva tended to take the long view of things. I mean, for now, there was an awful lot of work to be done. In fact, the Imperium still held the same amount of territory as it did when aiva first took command.

Another of aiva's many strengths is that he always had back-up plans to his back-up plans. If, after resigning, he ever wanted to regain his position as the Imperium's political leader, he could simply challenge his replacement to a game of the Five Crowns.

aiva set aside his grand visions and went back to work on the petty problems of today. His corporation, Mission Ready Mining RELOADED, was struggling to attract new members. And, of course, there was always a shortage of money.

But if aiva's latest plan succeeded, money might never be a problem again.

To be continued...


  1. Mental diarrhea. Doesn't even qualify as stream of consciousness.

  2. "Ridiculous? Sure. Totally impracticable? Of course. But, to be honest, the Five Crowns is still probably better than FozzieSov"

    Holy hell that one caught me off guard. LUL

  3. Surely this is all an act?!?

  4. Aiva is an embarrassment to humanity.

  5. that boy just needs to meet an ethical isk quadrupler

    1. Because he's supposed to be a top level 'strategist'. So there should be a reason for the number 103.

      Come on man, try to keep up here. This dude avia is trying to teach us the 5 Crowns, and understanding the technical aspects will really help when we take control of Goonz with it.

      Besides, mose EVE players will have a hard time getting 5 friends to help bash a pos or build a titan, much less 103...in noobships!

    2. You don't sarcasm much,huh?

      *rolls eyes*

    3. The post you responded to was sarcasm. And you took the time and effort to 'roll your eyes'. What kind of mining ship do you fly?


  7. 103 - NO MORE, NO LESS

    1. I hope he gets to fund the very first Imperial Five Crowns dispute.

    2. Remember the last time tweeps used the 'guitarsolo fighterjets' name? Just scroll back a few years.
