A little help
I'm not sure who reading these forums here will remember me, so I'll just introduce myself. I was the first CEO of PIE and helped form the CVA, many, many moons ago. Having completely exhausted 2 MMOs since, I decided to return to EVE, but in a slightly different capacity. Having helped setup a gaming website back in April, a few of us thought it might be good fun to create new characters from scratch.
As a possible faux pas, I created the corp (Green Hill Zone) using Takumi, as she already had the corp management skills. I've never actually flown her, and only login to do the odd bit of corp configuring etc. Sadly, we seem to have attracted the attention of people who, presumably, bear some sort of grudge against Takumi. A 6 man corporation called Finis Lumen, apparently based in Paara where we too are based, has been asked to extract 150m isk from us. I'm told their employer is also funding the war fees.
Essentially then, whilst we have about 17 in the corp, most are on 14 day trials, trying out the game, so we are 5 or so full timers, all of which are 5 week old characters. Somehow, this motley crew are expected to stump up 150m isk, due to an 18 month old grudge, and fight this 6 man corp of HAC and BS flyers.
Hardly in the best spirits of the game, to be honest.
The final straw came last night, when one of our new guys, who started the game day before yesterday, was station camped for hours and then finally podded, in his Ibis. "Welcome to EVE".
Just to see if in the eyes of CCP this constitutes griefing, I've fired off an harrassment petition, but in honesty, I expect them to come back on the side of Finis Lumen.
That's where you chaps come in.
Now, I'm not going to wade in here and expect half the Empire fleet to raise hell with a few charlatans, but rather, I just wondered if you could put your ears to the ground and help find out any information you can. Of course, anyone who does fancy firing their weapons are welcome to do so and it would be most appreciated, as long as it's not interupting RP of course.
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
Takumi / Stu.
Well if they were slavers im sure we could direct a war decleration there way.
However, im sure one of the guys can do you a favour for old times sake and hire a merc corp to spank them.
being a grunt and a suicidal one too i'd happily get CVA to declare on them but i doubt that will happen. maybe some fundrising to get, as khaldorn suggested mercs on them would be a good idea. you could also try to contact Golan who is currently serving in one of the best and most well known merc alliance if you can get a good deal
maybe we can even arrange some PIEs temporarely joining your corp if it can be roleplayed.... (serving takumi, the great founder of PIE, somewhere along those lines....).
this all will take some time though and if you are not currently operating in a low sec system i'm afraid all we can do is providing some ships and guns for your noobs. if however you are operating in a low sec system i'd gladly hide my bs somewhere between your miners with some other beams on....
does Jobe Katarn still play?

haven't seen him in ages tbh
they probably have no grudge and are doing it for cheap thrills.
best course of action would be to stealth-recruit some cva buddies and massacre them. fuck ic, kick the griefers' asses.
Jobe sold his account, not seen jobe mark 2 in months.
Bloody hell... Getting a hard-on over noob ganking, eh? We'll look into matters and see what we can do, Tak... wanders off, mumbling unpleasant things under his breath

Is that a minmatar on your avatar?
I don't have the map in front of me...is Paara low security? 'Cause I'm all about shooting at random troublemakers...
Im sure something can be worked out helpwise
I like the getting BDCI (Golans current location) on their arses myself, not sure its feasible though.
Paara is high sec space
A few jumps from Paara starts 0.4 and lower space, if i recall correct.
Nuts. We can work something out. Bait 'em out there or some-such. I mean, asking such a low amount of 150mil isk and preying on such a young corporation...they've GOT to be total chumps and easy enough to manipulate, tactically speaking.
Maybe someone can tell them that some gallente pirate with 48million isk on his head is waiting a few systems over, and they'll come get a peice...
hehe im bored and in my own corp so I'll see what I can do
This is why Alliances need a non-Alliance transfer corp.
Folks transfer to the corp from the Alliance, the CORP pays low war fee for the duration of the mission (sometimes only a couple of days), then resumes thier old positions.
Takumi do you have the names of these six losers in this corp? I seriously doubt they're hired by anyone they're probably just using the merc "label" to extort money.
Im without an assignment at the moment, recently having left Ushra'Khan.
Drop me a mail or convo in game if you're interested, I might sign up for a tour of duty.
Most of the CVA and AM guys know me if you need references.
Hmm... Hak, Sforza, and Gaius.
Thats what 70m sp
