Dogs do it, cats do it and humans do it too. Territory markings are programmed into the DNA of all living creatures. This trait seems to have been passed on over the 80,000 years since the collapse of the EVE gate, because at the weekend I met one of this species…
Due to time constraints, undocking at the weekend has become a military plan for me. The plan was to scan a few sites and then see where I ended up. Because I didn’t have any filament at hand, I started by scanning the Relic and Data sites in HighSec and slowly worked my way towards LowSec.
In one system I ended up in a Relic Site. There, a container trundled through space. It had a rather long label.
Really? He actually threw in the towel on the Lige? He must be German!
I did the site. In the next system, another cargo container and this time the person was even present in the local. “Ring Ring” The imaginary cash register in the back of my head sensed cash – or at least an entertaining dialogue. So I opened a convo once. The protagonists Jezaja and UnknownCapsuleer (anonymised, of course):
Jezaja: Hi, pay me 50 Million ISK or I will finish your Relic Site.
UnknownCapsuleer: No! Stay away, this is my site!
Jezaja: My ship is very powerful. Don’t try it.
UnknownCapsuleer: Stay away from my site! I scanned it!
UnknownCapsuleer: I kill you when you steal it!!!
Jezaja: You’re not here. I do the site now.
Jezaja: Just hacked the first container.
UnknownCapsuleer: Go away! Stop stealing!
Jezaja: You’re not here. So this site is free for everyone. You can’t claim sites that are free.
UnknownCapsuleer: This is my relic area. Stop stealing faggot.
Jezaja: I just hacked the second container.
UnknownCapsuleer: This is my site!
This went on for quite a while. Unfortunately, he didn’t transfer 50 million to me, but just continued to insult me. And unfortunately, the player never appeared on the site.
Have you ever seen a player with a container claim a site? Wie hättet ihr gehandelt? Wie schätzt Ihr mich ein? Would I have left the site if he had still come?
