The enemy of my enemy is my friend

Maionez Varenie seems to truly enjoy PVPing. She's had a fun time dropping carriers on random procurers and she recently visited the Curse area again. But like any normal neighborhood, at some point, when you're a bully to everyone -- everyone will start ganging up on you. Such was the case when she visited the area with a Sleipner.

She bounced around a couple systems until finally, Fraternity., was able to catch up with her.

The setup with neighboring gangs...

[06:01:11] RiotRick > slepiner gorgon has cyno (carrier bait) fyi
[06:01:22] RiotRick > Maionez Varenie

The kill...

[06:09:34] Nirvoak Denullth > Kill: Maionez Varenie (Sleipnir) as u wish, my lord, the russian is dead

Sometimes yes, to defeat an enemy, you might want to tell their other enemies where to search for them. :-)

Hero Orca Battles Suspect...Woops

It seems like all miner PVP stories start out with an angry person and a mobile tractor unit (MTU).

In this case, Ciphas Patrouette, Bel Dian, RiotRick, and Kopaka Newton were just goofing off after C3/C4 wormhole adventures. Afterwards, Ciphas and Bel started ice mining and reported an MTU that was left alone on an ice belt. Riot comes in to shoot it and all of a sudden, a neutral Orca and Skiff (not the owners of the MTU) started throwing drones around Riot. This would have been an okay choice if Riot was in a frig or a cruiser, but when he's coming off soloing C3 sites, more than likely you'll need some more guns.

The skiff was able to escape due to warp core stabilizers, but came back in a battleship Machariel. Unfortunately, the Mach wasn't able to properly position himself and was too close to the fast moving Legion. He barely hits Riot.

The hero Orca, the saviour of a stranger's MTU (which was saved btw), falls to the Legion, with a skiff and a hulk in its ship bay. (*golf clap*) That's a true sacrifice, a true miner bro right here.

Some correspondence afterwards...
