[I-RED] Public Release: Thebeka Affair


(Sah Phyre) #21

Have you considered the slim, nearly implausible possibility that the decision to join the war was taken at some point during these four weeks? I’m just saying.


(Arrendis) #22

I’ve considered that it’s pretty much a given that the decision to join the war was made… today. That’s why preparations are beginning today. Had the decision been made in the last four weeks, we could have expected to see ships beginning to arrive ever since the decision was made, in total safety. You know, as part of the ‘planning and preparing in advance’ phase of things.

I’d express some degree of surprise at just how incredibly incompetent most of these efforts have been… but I’ve seen the fits you fly. Once I got back up off the floor from laughing at the way Khimi Harar fits a Guardian, really, none of it’s much surprised me since.


(Creetalor) #23

Pruning leaves of a tree in Fall is a wasted endeavor. However one can plan the raking of the leaves.


(Kalaratiri) #24

Preparations began several days ago I would imagine. They were certainly making enough trips with their bowhead yesterday.


(Aldrith Shutaq) #25

The hell is wrong with my cheap Guardian fit?


(Sah Phyre) #26

Well, if you’re so convinced of your own omniscience, I see no reason to dissent any further.


(Arrendis) #27

I’ll tell you after the next set of timers. :wink:


(Aldrith Shutaq) #28

Remember, I’m on a budget. Your criticisms better keep it under 300 mil.


(Arrendis) #29

325, actually. But you know what the 55M price difference gets you?

Dead logi gives no reps. Just ask poor Aisling.


(Kalaratiri) #30

You cowards.


(Aldrith Shutaq) #31

Clearly she is still upset about her low position on the priority list.


(Kalaratiri) #32

Compared to the people who are leaving?

This is the purest definition of lip-service. Showing up just in time to say they were there, and applying themselves to the absolute minimum of risk and effort. They didn’t even dec Samira for spirits sake.

They could have sat in Syndicate and said “Booo” and it would have had about as much impact.


(John Revenent) #33

Booo.

The declaration of intent isn’t even 24 hours old and people are making assumptions. Or maybe we have a ‘leak’ we’re unaware of funneling you false information?

Either way how we plan our operations along side the Amarrians isn’t really up for debate.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I feel our comrades in the Heiian Conglomerate are doing well enough dealing with other elements.


(Kalaratiri) #34

You are aware you declared a war right?

When you make a statement like

and then only declare hostilities against one of the three “aggressive actors”, and even then you pick the one who have just declared their intent to leave the theatre… it kind of comes across as chickening out.


(John Revenent) #35

View it as you wish. It doesn’t matter.


(Aldrith Shutaq) #36

We remain most concerned by the presence of Minmatar terrorists, heretics, anarchists and criminal elements operating in Thebeka, and would wish loyal capsuleers to now concentrate their efforts on removing enemies of Amarr from our space.

You are fourth on the list. Wait in the queue like everyone else and we will crush you shortly.


(Elsebeth Rhiannon) #37

I have to say that while obviously I feel differently than the Angel about the compliment value of your initial choices, I have to agree with her otherwise. It does make you look a bit funny when you escalate a conflict that is about to end anyway, but not others.

Almost as if you’re trying to convince us all to stay?


(Fifinella) #38

Maybe, secretly, they want us to stay? Hey Amarr, are you lonely?


(Mizhara Del'thul) #39

It would seem more that it took the Amarr more than four weeks to gather up enough people and allies to have a shot at the Astrahus, and they’re probably rather desperate to actually be able to point at a “victory” in their own heartlands that isn’t Petty Theft Raitaru. So much for their claim that they wanted us out of here.


(Julianni Avala) #40

It is true that people will have their own speculations as to the reasoning behind I-RED’s decision to join beside their long-standing allies. It is a reality that must be faced. No matter what decision was made, (no matter when it was decided and announced), certain parties would of course be expected to speak out against it. That is the way of things.

What matters is that I-RED’s business partners and allies understand the truth behind the matter. I would encourage both I-RED and their allies to remember this, instead of giving in to taunting.
