We were at war with some scrub Jita ganking corp. Nothing came of it. We don't do Jita except with alts.
The Rifterlings, of Damu'Khonde, had been romancing Ford for the last week. So, he decided to take them up on the offer. He wasn't in the Minmatar militia for more than a couple hours before he started awoxing his new militia.
He was promptly given the boot.
Ford is not only a fearless pilot, but a smooth talker.

Alright. Go ahead and put in another application. Sorry for the overreaction, but it looks a bit dodgy when you're only in corp for a few hours and kill a friendly militia.
The wardec is now over and Ford Stanley is back home in Fweddit, gone but only three days. He proved himself a skilled infiltrator, not so skilled at giving us intel towards the goal of awoxing expensive Damu'Khonde fleets. Some sadness there. The potential for so much more hilarity, lost.
Fweddit started up a DUST 514 corporation. Amarrican Ground Forces. I don't play DUST, so I've no idea how that is going. If we have people in the corp doing DUST things or not.
Master Zeuth did make us a pretty cool poster though. So there's that cultural victory.
We have a new fleet doctrine.
I sometimes wish we could come up with names like the Angry Birds doctrine, or the Richard Parker doctrine, or the Chicken Kiev fleet.
Nope. Dickfleet. That's our new doctrine.
We may name like twelve year olds, but we really are a bunch of serious grown adults who can talk about serious grown adult things. I suppose, in a way, that's what makes us a fun group to be with.
Granted, it is a dickish doctrine, and our enemies will cry long and hard about it. It's not a usual Fweddit thing, we're doing. It's good to be surprising.
Cripes. We dropped to 17 systems controlled. That's kinda embarrassing But it's also that pendulum thing. Though it might have swung a tad too far in the Minmatar's favour this time. I'm not sure we'll climb back up to our usual 27-29 systems before it starts to swing back again.
Oh. Right. The Caldari have zero systems. We should complain. We could be squids.
I sometimes wonder about our alliance name. I Whip My Slaves Back and Forth. What would CCP do were we in an Alliance Tournament and got to the final day. The big day. The name does fit right in with the lore, after all. So they can't really complain on that point. But any outsider watching the broadcast isn't going to know lore. They're just going to hear announcers talking about the Slaves, and how damned awesome they are.
Protip here kids. When you grow up to design your own MMOGs, do not make slavery part of the game's backstory.
