3 Bored Pilots, One poorly defended POS
TLDR: We shoot at a POS, we extort a ship from some w-space pioneers. Threats were made, laughs were had... Welcome to Wspace :)
So back story; I was scanning out our chain and saw there was a Mobile Tractor Unit on scan. I asked Lotor to combat probe it down and we both blew it up.
Shortly after we blew up that random MTU, the owner of the MTU tries to open a convo with me. At the same time he tries to open a convo with Lotor our CEO. I figured I would let Lotor sort it out.
2015.01.01 20:43:37 ] Lotor > greeetings friend
[ 2015.01.01 20:43:56 ] Timoxa Zero > why did you spok my mtu
[ 2015.01.01 20:44:18 ] Timoxa Zero > ur spooking me (
[ 2015.01.01 20:44:28 ] Lotor > not sure I have ever spok anything
Right at this moment I told Lotor there was a lone pod with the name "Timoxa Zero" on Dscan. We assumed the guy was trapped in the hole. Maybe we could sell him an exit.
[ 2015.01.01 20:44:36 ] Lotor > are you trapped !!!
[ 2015.01.01 20:44:45 ] Timoxa Zero > no
[ 2015.01.01 20:44:46 ] Timoxa Zero > i mlve in here
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:28 ] Lotor > why?
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:48 ] Timoxa Zero > well i mean
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:49 ] Timoxa Zero > its a nice place
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:52 ] Timoxa Zero > pretty good view
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:57 ] Lotor > but its a c2 ?
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:58 ] Timoxa Zero > our pos is right by the duck pond
[ 2015.01.01 20:45:59 ] Timoxa Zero > etcetc
[ 2015.01.01 20:46:34 ] Lotor > good money?
[ 2015.01.01 20:46:41 ] Timoxa Zero > not bad
[ 2015.01.01 20:46:54 ] Timoxa Zero > im new to wormholing so figured id start here and etcetc
[ 2015.01.01 20:47:00 ] Timoxa Zero > did you scan in from metropolis?
[ 2015.01.01 20:47:12 ] Lotor > I live there as well
[ 2015.01.01 20:47:32 ] Timoxa Zero > in metroplis?
[ 2015.01.01 20:47:52 ] Lotor > nope j162700
[ 2015.01.01 20:48:20 ] Timoxa Zero > really?
[ 2015.01.01 20:48:31 ] Lotor > yup
[ 2015.01.01 20:48:39 ] Timoxa Zero > since when?
[ 2015.01.01 20:48:40 ] Lotor > I live out of a cloaky orca
Not exactly true, in fact we just rolled into there from one of the holes in our chain. But they didn't need to know that :)
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:19 ] tikor Aivoras > hey
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:23 ] Lotor > howdy
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:24 ] Timoxa Zero > nospookpls
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:25 ] tikor Aivoras > I hear you live in this wormhole?
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:29 ] Lotor > yeah man
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:38 ] tikor Aivoras > wow... for how long?
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:48 ] Lotor > on and off for a few months now
[ 2015.01.01 20:49:49 ] Timoxa Zero > why dont you run anomalies?
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:01 ] Lotor > i let them build up to bait people in
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:04 ] tikor Aivoras > but you don't have a pos set up
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:12 ] Lotor > cloaky orca and alts boss
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:18 ] Timoxa Zero > protip
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:28 ] Timoxa Zero > when someone tells you the wormhol you're buying is empty
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:30 ] Timoxa Zero > its never really empty
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:35 ] Lotor > yeah man
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:38 ] tikor Aivoras > uuuuuuuggggggghhhh
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:40 ] Lotor > its crazy
[ 2015.01.01 20:50:42 ] tikor Aivoras > WHY?
[ 2015.01.01 20:51:10 ] Timoxa Zero > EOL is last 4 hours of life iirc, correct?
We saw them shipping into drakes and we thought they might fight. Which is good for us, because we love to fight!
[ 2015.01.01 20:51:20 ] Lotor > so yall ready for some pew ? now that we are wormhole buddies?
[ 2015.01.01 20:51:31 ] tikor Aivoras > oh god no...
[ 2015.01.01 20:51:37 ] Lotor > some friendly pew ?
[ 2015.01.01 20:51:51 ] tikor Aivoras > bruh... we are new to this stuff... PLS leave us alone...
[ 2015.01.01 20:52:03 ] tikor Aivoras > maybe we can be... FRIENDLY?
[ 2015.01.01 20:52:17 ] tikor Aivoras > like... hunt ppl TOGETHER?
[ 2015.01.01 20:52:24 ] tikor Aivoras > and not shoot each other
[ 2015.01.01 20:52:29 ] Timoxa Zero > lots of capitals here
[ 2015.01.01 20:52:30 ] Timoxa Zero > im confused
[ 2015.01.01 20:53:25 ] Lotor > i might have a dread logged off
Not exactly true... but plausible.. we "Might" have a dread in there..
[ 2015.01.01 20:55:28 ] Lotor > how much you pay for my hole?
[ 2015.01.01 20:56:32 ] Timoxa Zero > you really gonna be like this?
[ 2015.01.01 20:56:33 ] tikor Aivoras > we paid a ton of isk
[ 2015.01.01 20:56:40 ] tikor Aivoras > come on... we can be friends
[ 2015.01.01 20:57:07 ] Lotor > how did you pay ?
[ 2015.01.01 20:57:31 ] tikor Aivoras > Lotor someone was selling this "empty" wormhole
[ 2015.01.01 20:57:37 ] tikor Aivoras > we bought it
[ 2015.01.01 20:57:43 ] Lotor > how much ?
[ 2015.01.01 20:57:54 ] Timoxa Zero > 650
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:06 ] Lotor > thats not to bad
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:10 ] tikor Aivoras > yes...
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:20 ] Lotor > i feel i should have gotten a cut
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:32 ] tikor Aivoras > BUT it cost us a ton of isk, and we would really appreciate it if you could be our ally in here
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:41 ] tikor Aivoras > we have powerful friends moving in...
The old "powerful friends" ploy. We had a really good laugh at that. Most powerful friends aren't willing to come defend your POS from 3 dudes in stealth bombers.
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:52 ] Lotor > o snap
[ 2015.01.01 20:58:56 ] Lotor > but its my wormhole
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:12 ] tikor Aivoras > you did not set up a pos
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:17 ] tikor Aivoras > you merely brought in a ship
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:19 ] Timoxa Zero > technically
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:20 ] tikor Aivoras > and said it is yours
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:23 ] Timoxa Zero > its nobodys
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:26 ] Timoxa Zero > because you cant claim sov
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:28 ] tikor Aivoras > yes... that
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:39 ] Lotor > so who are your "powerful" friends
[ 2015.01.01 20:59:42 ] Lotor > i might know them
[ 2015.01.01 21:00:06 ] tikor Aivoras > ... and why are we telling you this?
[ 2015.01.01 21:00:30 ] Lotor > cause its the normal im scared reply
[ 2015.01.01 21:00:34 ] Lotor > "i have friends"
[ 2015.01.01 21:00:44 ] tikor Aivoras > lol
Some guy from Goonswarm enters the channel.. Guess that was the Bigger friends we should have been worried about.
We got into bombers and started shooting at their badly defended POS. It had 6 medium autocannons and no points, so why not? We might get them to fight, better yet, they may call in some friends and get us a fight too. A fight was what we really wanted. Shooting a poorly defended POS is just a great way of saying hello :)
[ 2015.01.01 21:01:01 ] Ayuren Aakiwa > Hello
[ 2015.01.01 21:01:07 ] Lotor > sup boss
[ 2015.01.01 21:01:27 ] Lotor > I'm suspose to be scared of null bears
[ 2015.01.01 21:02:03 ] Lotor > you do realize goons get facestomped every time they come in w space
[ 2015.01.01 21:02:30 ] tikor Aivoras > Lotor we would never ally with goons...
[ 2015.01.01 21:02:58 ] Timoxa Zero > i dont see why this is your wormhole just as much as ours
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:19 ] Lotor > Cause I was here first
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:40 ] Timoxa Zero > so in that respect
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:45 ] Timoxa Zero > anyone else in this wormhole before you
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:48 ] Timoxa Zero > since they were added
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:52 ] Timoxa Zero > owns this wormhole as well
[ 2015.01.01 21:03:58 ] Lotor > sure but im here they arent
[ 2015.01.01 21:06:22 ] Lotor > I feel I should have beenconsulted
[ 2015.01.01 21:06:25 ] tikor Aivoras > Lotor well, if you stop shooting our pos we will keep on talking
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:12 ] Lotor > k?
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:17 ] Lotor > what we talkinga bout?
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:29 ] tikor Aivoras > we paying you isk to leave wh
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:34 ] Lotor > who much ?
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:34 ] Ayuren Aakiwa > I'm going to hop out of here it seems I was a bit misinformed about what's occuring
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:39 ] tikor Aivoras > but only if you stop shooting our fucking pos pls
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:49 ] tikor Aivoras > btw nice manti kill
[ 2015.01.01 21:07:53 ] tikor Aivoras > or loss rather
One of our bombers somehow managed to get shot by the POS... DOH! O well.
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:05 ] Lotor > its i have more
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:07 ] Timoxa Zero > i feel like
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:11 ] Timoxa Zero > even if we pay you
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:13 ] Timoxa Zero > you wont leave
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:24 ] Lotor > i'm a man of my word
[ 2015.01.01 21:08:29 ] Lotor > going to get bubbles now
[ 2015.01.01 21:09:31 ] Timoxa Zero > you claim to be a man of your word
[ 2015.01.01 21:09:39 ] Timoxa Zero > who do i know, who will vouch for that word
[ 2015.01.01 21:10:06 ] Lotor > its ok ill just bubble your pos
[ 2015.01.01 21:10:15 ] Timoxa Zero > thats not even related to what i said
[ 2015.01.01 21:10:54 ] tikor Aivoras > Lotor that sounds like an awful idea... you will bubble your own ships and stop them from escaping
[ 2015.01.01 21:11:11 ] Lotor > I've got orcales coming
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:07 ] tikor Aivoras > Lotor look, if you stop shooting us, we will pay you. But first you have to stop shooting us
I would like to point out, it wasn't our idea to ransom, it just kind of worked out that way. :)
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:19 ] Lotor > kk
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:20 ] Timoxa Zero > no, he'll just keep on shooting
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:27 ] Timoxa Zero > this is classic scam talk
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:31 ] Timoxa Zero > happens all the time
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:38 ] Timoxa Zero > you threaten to evict us, show your hand etcetc
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:39 ] Timoxa Zero > we pay you
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:42 ] Timoxa Zero > you still evict us
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:44 ] Timoxa Zero > the end
[ 2015.01.01 21:12:48 ] Lotor > wow
[ 2015.01.01 21:13:20 ] Lotor > kk
[ 2015.01.01 21:13:29 ] Timoxa Zero > is that not your plan
[ 2015.01.01 21:13:31 ] Timoxa Zero > i feel like it is
[ 2015.01.01 21:13:38 ] Lotor > na
[ 2015.01.01 21:13:48 ] Lotor > its will be more fun to just harrass yo for days
So I made the suggestion to Lotor to have them give us one of the drakes for us to go away. We knew they had a drake and if we asked for money... they might just say.. "we don't have any". I mean we did lose a bomber up till this point.
[ 2015.01.01 21:14:15 ] Lotor > let us have that drake and we will leave
[ 2015.01.01 21:14:22 ] Lotor > ill take my ocra out
[ 2015.01.01 21:14:47 ] Lotor > drake seems fair
[ 2015.01.01 21:14:55 ] Timoxa Zero > does it?
[ 2015.01.01 21:14:58 ] Lotor > yeah
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:04 ] Timoxa Zero > why only a drake?
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:30 ] Lotor > you want me to want more?
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:37 ] Timoxa Zero > i dont
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:40 ] Timoxa Zero > im just confused why you want so little.
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:49 ] Lotor > well you said you were new to w space
[ 2015.01.01 21:15:55 ] Lotor > and just bought this worm hole
[ 2015.01.01 21:16:01 ] Lotor > figured you were on the broke side
[ 2015.01.01 21:16:05 ] Lotor > and im reasonable
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:09 ] Lotor > sound good ?
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:27 ] Timoxa Zero > hmm
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:32 ] Timoxa Zero > how would i give you this drkae
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:42 ] Lotor > just warp it to planet one
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:54 ] Timoxa Zero > thats some pretty obvious bait
[ 2015.01.01 21:17:58 ] Timoxa Zero > hows about
[ 2015.01.01 21:18:04 ] Timoxa Zero > i leave outside the pos bubble
[ 2015.01.01 21:18:10 ] Lotor > some times you have to trust bro
[ 2015.01.01 21:18:36 ] Timoxa Zero > and you dont trust me to leave my drake outside the pos bubble
[ 2015.01.01 21:19:20 ] Lotor > just planet 1 boss, I Swear your pod will be ok
[ 2015.01.01 21:20:10 ] Lotor > I can bring all kinda of people in here say im good for my word but wont do any good
[ 2015.01.01 21:20:58 ] Lotor > ok if you want to put it out side the shield its fine
[ 2015.01.01 21:22:35 ] Lotor > aight man bubbles it is
[ 2015.01.01 21:22:54 ] Timoxa Zero > i never said no.
It looked to us like he was stalling so we added some pressure to the conversation.
[ 2015.01.01 21:24:54 ] Lotor > 2 drakes?
[ 2015.01.01 21:25:59 ] Lotor > last chance before we step up
[ 2015.01.01 21:26:26 ] Timoxa Zero > and what exactly does stepping up signify
[ 2015.01.01 21:31:03 ] Timoxa Zero > alright alright
At this point we lost another bomber and said fuck it.. we needed something bigger, we shipped up to 2 ishtars and a scythe. It worked even though the POS was starting to wreck us again, but the show of force was what was important, if we were going to get our drake ransom.
[ 2015.01.01 21:31:07 ] Lotor > ?
[ 2015.01.01 21:31:22 ] Lotor > drake planet one?
[ 2015.01.01 21:32:02 ] Timoxa Zero > in a minute
[ 2015.01.01 21:32:06 ] Lotor > now ?
[ 2015.01.01 21:32:51 ] Timoxa Zero > yea just give me a minute fuck
[ 2015.01.01 21:33:23 ] Timoxa Zero > can i leave it outside the bubble?
[ 2015.01.01 21:33:33 ] Lotor > yeah
[ 2015.01.01 21:34:11 ] Lotor > just eject it and change the password it will kick it
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:20 ] Timoxa Zero > it didnt eject
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:23 ] Timoxa Zero > how am i supposed to do it
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:25 ] Lotor > o werid
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:32 ] Lotor > just boat it over
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:39 ] Lotor > yall must have the pos set up for corp use
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:42 ] Lotor > rather than password
[ 2015.01.01 21:35:49 ] Timoxa Zero > yup
[ 2015.01.01 21:36:54 ] Timoxa Zero > you're watching i presume?
[ 2015.01.01 21:36:58 ] Lotor > ya
Drake delivered.. Ransom Paid. We said our goodbyes.
[ 2015.01.01 21:40:44 ] Lotor > thank you sir
[ 2015.01.01 21:41:19 ] Lotor > fly safe
So we didn't get a fight out of them, but we did get a ransom drake, so thats better than nothing. It did cost us 2 stealth bombers, but it was a fun way to spend some time.
Special thank you to all who participated and please enjoy your time in W-space.
