Off-Topic Thebeka/Alkabsi/Empire Rebellion Thread

I happen to agree, so I’ve made such a thread. Don’t think too much of it.

Any off-topic discussion related to the current slave rebellions, deployments, and other activities in Empire space can be moved here.

To start us off, since it’s the hot topic currently: Any further thoughts on the potential CVA deployment?


Don’t worry, I am far too pessimistic to be happy about our accord.

Anyways, Thebeka is turning into a charlie-foxtrot of epic proportions. When comparing Thebeka to Kahah, at least I can say there’s not the mass murder of innocents going on.


To be honest, CVA doesn’t need to deploy in space forces. They just need to deploy some ground forces with some fighting spirit. I’m reminded of the old joke, two Caldari generals meet up in Caille for tea. One asks the other: “who won the war in space?”

The war in space doesn’t matter. Of course with rebel-friendly stations in orbit, support and assistance can be sent more easily, but they still have to run the Imperial blockade forces, aero forces, and all others that will be actively interdicting the planet. Most of what is sent will not get to the surface. Special operations teams and equipment will be destroyed in the drop. It would take years, if not decades to insert forces that could make an actual difference in conventional combat.

Capsuleers are too busy stroking their ego, talking about fighting the Purity folks, or the EM folks, or the AM folks, or the PIE folks to recognize the objective.

Pot, kettle.


Guilty as charged. On the other hand, I at least accomplished my mission.

Again, your view is entirely too narrow. Again, as can be expected from a ground force commander.

No, no. It was fine the first time. The second time is just too much. You’ll need to come up with something else.

So I deployed some sensor dinguses to monitor something.

And one of you lot shot them as soon as I went to bed for the night.

Pretty sure it was PIE.

SFRIM seems to take a more direct approach. Surprisingly.

Interesting. My dingus remains untouched.

That’s what he said.

“He” being half of the Amarr on IGS.


Please. This is the capsuleer community. Apparently all the men are either in some kind of committed relationship or only a couple of neurons above brain-dead.


Granted. But,

doesn’t necessarily mean their dinguses have received much contact lately.


Well this escalated quickly.

Actually, a surprising amount of Amarr men on the IGS are married. And even more surprisingly, a lot of them to Minmatar capsuleers even. I mean, at least DNA -wise, neither necessarily hold the views of the Empire or the Republic.

IGS is a celebrity club hardly representative of the capsuleer base in general, though.

I enjoy having fans, I get to interact with most of them like a normal human being.

It’s nice, keeps me centered.
