It’s interesting to see the Order continue to taut its invincibility due to the word and “righteousness” of their cause. It seems that because of their divine mission, they are impervious and need fear none. Also, according to them, they need not fear, as miners will never fight back, gank back, or act against them because of the assumed above stated reasons.
If that’s the case, I guess these tanks are just for aesthetics, right?
Bumper thug Guybert, despite the bravado of himself and his ilk, seem to hold less faith in the notion of their “good work” and the “fact” that miners would never react to them by ganking, and more faith in walking a walk very different from their talk. Do Shield Extenders and Shield Rigs really have a need on a bumping ship if there is “no risk” of miner retaliation?
New bumper thug Simon Lindsay seems to also have caught onto the bumpgeois’ unspoken rule. Despite not having Tech 2 shield systems, he ended up equipping something. To cover it up his lack of Tech 2 shield systems, the “brave” bumper even placed a cloaking device on his Stabber! Better safe than sorry right?…But…wait? What’s there to be sorry about if miners would never retaliate?
Pilot Zak Fey was another bumper pontificating about his invincibility to all anti-bumping forces…but, when asked a certain question, he seemed to…buckle.
As the saying goes; Welp.
Even Pro-Bumper Miner turned Bumper Audrik Villalona seems to have more faith in tanking against his betrayed comrades’ wrath rather than assume they would simply do nothing. I guess if I not only paid the “order,” but then began bumping my fellow miners, I’d be a bit frightened of retaliation as well. Hell hath no fury like a hundred miners’ scorn.
On can’t help but wonder what other equipment the “order” is packing. You know. Just in case the miners decide to rise against them. Which, you know, they said could never happen….
