The last few days have been very strange. With the eviction of J111856 the corp has been online here and there, but as a whole we seem somewhat lost. We managed to deny our attackers almost any loot they could have hoped for. We learned they were a mercenary group which were hired to evict us from our system. They weren’t being paid very much, but were promised spoils of war, which we didn’t let them have. It feels good, in kind of a shitty way.
Since the eviction a lot has happened. My Eve time is spotty with a lot of my inspiration for the game deflating after such a cataclysmic defeat. I spend most of my time now mining ice asteroids and running level four missions. It’s a good change for the moment. My personal wallet is pathetically low, and my security status can definitely use a boost. Thankfully some good news starts filtering through the comm channels.
While under siege in J111856, a connection to a class 4 wormhole appeared. Our treasure fleet, a fleet of haulers which housed most of our ships and loot we were able to rescue from our towers before being attacked, was able to escape through that connection. On top of that, our new diplomatic leader, Oz, managed to make contact with the C4’s inhabitants. As talks progressed they agreed to house our fleet for the time being, until we can facilitate the treasure fleet’s return to k-space. Our new allies are apparently very friendly! Talks continued and Oz began helping them run through neighboring C3 anomalies. They trusted him with a few of their ships. Not something I would do personally, but the act of faith was well received.
As it stands now our treasure fleet has safely returned to k-space and the corporation has regrouped in the Mikhir system while we ponder what to do next. It sounds as if the C4 allies may help us find a new C3 home system and continue working with us in the future. They sound like a great group of pilots and I’m looking forward to getting to know them all, and hopefully meeting a few pilots from my timezone! From the sound of it, we might need to re-name our corp to something with a phoenix in it, considering our re-birth in the face of such destruction!
