Last night after posting about the new war I logged in and undocked. I’ll tell you now what I said in local then:

“The sky! It’s full of stars!”

The INDY folk had assembled a substantial fleet and was camped outside my station. Somewhere between six or ten pilots, plus many drones, gave me an overview that was full of angry red stars.

Needless to say, I redocked.

The banter in local was pleasant and friendly, except for one AC-ME representative who tried to tell me that the previous night’s mining operations had not been disrupted by the war.

I asked politely: “Does AC-ME always escort each Retriever mining barge with a battle cruiser and an interceptor?”

That line of bluster was not heard further.

Needless to say, I was camped in pretty solid. Jim Bridger, however, got undocked and led several of the combat pilots on a merry chase out of the system. I’m told Chebri also had an encounter with one of Ironfleet’s younger members, and chased him into Jita where he lost her amidst the general chaos. Later, he encountered two members of INDY who chased him fruitlessly through several systems.

Today, when I logged in, there was only one hostile (in a battleship!) camped outside my station. So I got out and am now flying free in Isaziwa, looking for trouble to cause. Only one hostile in system just now (a different one), and he looks to be docked.

    Well, that answers my noobish question if you could see red.

    That was you in the battleship, wasn’t it Phogg?

    As for seeing red, only sorta, as it happens — I am color vision impaired, and the red war stars in EVE are actually a sort of muddy brown to me.

    But, fortunately, they are a *unique* muddy brown, so I get by.

    Much as you send the gratz to your corp member for leading a few of us out, ac-me sent their thanks to the INDY folk who didn’t have to show up but still did. This game is about community (Or in your case screwing with the community? :P).

  4. Marlenus says:

    And the ones who did show up seemed a good-humored bunch, too. From this outsider’s perspective, INDY looks like a good fit for AC-ME.

    We tend to be mild mannered it not fairly removed from AC-ME’s regular stomping grounds. I think as a whole the alliance is still feeling out AC-ME’s abilities and how they fit into the overall organization. It was fun to come help them out…not so much fun to be so overloaded with power that there was no way in hell you where going to undock. I know that *I* wouldn’t have undocked solo into that. As for Jim and the Torpedo dude…we only sent 2 guys (maybe 3 if I remember) that way. At the time we were still working out operationally who could do what…most of that has been fixed now. Oh the joy of new alliances and new corps….

    Actually, that was the friendliest camp I’ve ever seen. The only grump was Vryder04, trying to convince me how pointless my war was. Which, considering the person-hours represented by the assembled fleet, didn’t convince me, much.

  7. Gulletsplitter says:

    Some of it was that we didn’t know much about your organization…so better to bring a ton of folks just in case you launched with some uber command ship kinda thing. Once we had a better feel for you guys…we pretty much decided that not everyone needed to come pew. I imagine if we see a lot of action happening some of us might trickle back up that way.

  8. Chebri says:

    I never went to Jita. Your blog is full of lies and fiction…as usual.

  9. Marlenus says:

    Chebri, you have a strange concept of truth and fiction. My corpmate said you chased him into Jita. You chased him, he jumped into Jita, he never saw you again — where’s the fiction? Sounds to me like the two stories are completely consistent. Nobody ever said you went to Jita, although to be fair, I think my corpmate thought you did.

  10. Chebri says:

    I don’t go into Jita. I never jumped to Jita. This is a lie – a specific, pointed lie.


    An untruthful statement about a person, published in writing or through broadcast media, that injures the person’s reputation or standing in the community. Because libel is a tort (a civil wrong), the injured person can bring a lawsuit against the person who made the false statement. Libel is a form of defamation , as is slander (an untruthful statement that is spoken, but not published in writing or broadcast through the media).

  11. Marlenus says:

    Chebri, how many times do I have to explain it to you? I never said you jumped into Jita. I wasn’t there. How would I know?

    I said I was told you chased my corpmate into Jita. And, indeed, I was told that.

    I once chased a tiny snake into the end of a garden hose. He went into the garden hose. I did not. Comprende?

    It’s also very possible that my corpmate thought you went into Jita, but was mistaken. A mistake is not a lie. Comprende?

    Sheez, I feel like I’m teaching a basic grammar class here.
