There is a guy in PEW called AIZENOP. He’s young, enthusiastic about the game, and a very capable pilot. About a month ago, Wild Geese baited 4 of our battleships, with a very well planned log off trap (we tip our hats to them for this maneuver. Link to losses below). We lost a Machariel, a Vindicator, my Nightmare and AIZENOP’s Bhaalgorn
Now for myself, the Mach pilot, and the vindi pilot who are older eve vets, we just shrugged off the loss.
For AIZENOP it was different.
He had never lost a titan in EVE O, or anything vaguely expensive. While we calmly were going down, killing as many as we could in our battleships, only AIZENOP felt his nerves tested. He was mad. All this work he had done to get this ship, destroyed in minutes. He made a decision right in that moment that he would exact revenge on the geese, one way or another.
Little did WG know that the death of this particular Bhaalgorn, would begin a string of events, a story of intrigue and subterfuge, that would result in over 300b in assets destroyed in less than an hour.
Here’s what happened.
The day after the 4 battleship losses, while still licking our wounds, AIZENOP, with the help of our Russian friend Conopus (CRB Corp), began “Operation Goose Hunting”. AIZENOP would plant a spy in wild geese, a primarily Russian speaking alliance, and with the help of Conopus, they would translate all intel & formulate a plan. I was asked to pull PEW out of Syndicate for a week, and so we deployed to Konora on contract as a distraction.
The first trap AIZENOP sprung involved a Nightmare, and 2 Bhaalgorns. With the intel he was giving it was easy to know where their response fleets were, or if they has one at all. We killed a nightmare and two bhaalgorns, with the help of KOTE, a player from PAY corp <3 and quickly left the region again for Konora, letting WG think we were gone.
The next two weeks AIZENOP watched, waiting for an opening, an opportunity, anything. A few days in, he noticed a few neutral groups attacking WG, some Chinese and a small Russian Corp, PAY (thank you KOTE). Using his diplomatic skills to coordinate with them, he arranged to reinforce and bring a citadel to structure. He was able to keep our presence hidden and force a fight with WG.
All the parts were in place, and the stage was set. Our hope was that WG would stay unaware of us, and take the bait.
On the morning of 6/2/21, AIZENOP arranged to move and hide our 10 vindicator fleet nearby, and kept it logged... keep reading on reddit ➡
Right? That’s what dogs are for, among other things.
Ok anyone around Churchill Meadows un-nerved by the amount of geese flying over all morning long every single day. Just battalions of them flying in formation for hours at a time. Honking their death calls from above.
Is there some kind of battle of the geese for territory going on? Perhaps they are amassing an army, they do seem well organized. They are crafty little buggers, what are they plotting? Is it a geese v.s geese battle, or something more sinister.
Most everyone hates Canadian geese. They gang up and chase pets and people, they have no fear of blocking roads, and they shit EVERYWHERE. No other animal of similar size is so fearless or so agressive, so they must have been bred that way or trained.
I believe the reason the Canadian people are seen as so "nice" is because as a nation, they have found a way to channel their hatred of America into the geese via the food they feed them, or possibly little goose sized mind control helmets.
In conclusion we have been under attack by Canada for decades, and we are losing this war unless we send a weaponized animal attack of our own. I propose suicidal whitetail deer.
