I was travelling for the weekend but always checking my iGoogle page for updates on Kirith's corporation. Sunday morning I got the good news: I was in m3 corp. Elated I logged in Sunday night to see a populated corp chat channel and an alliance chat channel and I immediately went to work reading the corp and alliance mails.

Halfway through the corp mails I saw one warning of hostiles in the area threatening harm to m3 pilots for harbouring me. FINEG has come to town.

Insert long suffering sigh of frustration here. I immediately contacted the director online to explain the situation and why these guys were coming around. I felt guilty that I had not explained it during the application and interview process but really, where do you insert the fact that this corp may or may not come after me depending on their mood? They did ignore me all summer and they have not bothered any other Strife leadership that went on to other corporations.

Of course, this could be part of their plan: try and force me to be isolated in my own corp or in a public corp and drive me to pay their extortion fee; perhaps they see me as a weak link since I was the one that opened negotiations with them last spring. Well, I have no intention of giving them a red cent and I get the feeling that the m3 directorship will not be intimidated by these guys.

In the meantime, I need to get some channels and forum access set up and get into the swing of things.

    Well they are more of an annoyance than anything else if your in a nice large corp you shouldnt have too many problems maybe even hit them for a few ships in the process. well keep us informed this should prove quite interesting.

    hell I like these FINEG A$$hats less and less, not that I ever liked em to begin with but for petes sake....good hunting

  3. Do these people not have anything better to do in EVE? Geeze. Gratz on your application's acceptance...I look forward hearing how it goes with M3.

  4. Let me know how things develop, we're in the process of moving ourselves. Would be a shame if Fineg saw their beloved capitals outgunned by our own. Perhaps it's time for us to make ransom demands of our own?

  5. Talk about a dog with a bone....

    In all likelhood I expect your new corp will just laugh them off...

    Oh and congrats on the new corp.

    Congratulations on the successful application, mate. I wonder if FINEG have finally bitten of a bit more than they can chew. Chasing solo guys around is one thing, going to war with a large corporation is another matter. Hope you settle in nice and easily.
