This is Ministries Pellion, for the independent press organization, I Reject Your Reality, reporting live from Nidupad.
Earlier today, forces from the Central Cluster’s Spectrum Alliance assaulted and destroyed the mining infrastructure of The Imperial Union, another Central Cluster alliance.
Six structures were assaulted and destroyed in the Nidupad system over a number of hours, resulting in the loss of billions of isk, jobs, and loss of life, for non-capsuleers, working aboard these mining platforms. (Independent verification can be found on the popular Central Cluster news site ZKill, check Nidupad.)
Local intel remained quiet as to the source of the conflict between these two groups. It was noted the initial perpetrators were drawn from three corporations within the Spectrum Alliance’s organization. Those corps were Khardula Ventures, Loot Fairy Repossessions and An Interesting Corp. Perhaps this was some local squabble between the groups; however, it is rare to see such carnage, in such a short time period, within a single system within the Central Cluster.
No members of The Imperial Union were present during the initial assault to ask as to the origins of this fight, and this reporter, fearing for her safety, declined to speak directly with the members of the offensive force as one member was, in fact, a known ganksta. The increasing use of “gankstas” to enforce a code of behavior is becoming common in the Central Cluster. Local outcries, over this tactic, have gone unanswered by Concord highups, though I do want to note the enforcement division still exacts retribution in accordance with the law, in regard to illegal aggression. Still, the common capsuleer plagued by this lawless behavior must take steps to ensure their own personal safety (and the safety of friends and loved ones) among the stars, which has led to the question, now common in many quarters…why have Concord at all?
