My home has been held hostage for a number of days now. The Alliance has lost control of some of the old world colonies. CODE, a group who call themselves “pirates”, have effectively blockaded the system and seized control of major stations such as George Lucas in Leesti on behalf of their chosen faction.
Not only that, they randomly waste my damn time by interdicting me for no good reason, then ganging up on me when I’d wanted a fair fight.
Basically, they’re just annoying; like a fly on sh*t, or a malfunctioning Cargo Scoop. But I do have to admit they’re doing a very good job of it. I was even a little impressed when I decoded a communication from them I received about them destroying my ship:
If you find yourself in a fair fight, you haven’t done enough preparation.
They even manage to be annoying when they’re right… haha, but what should I expect out of Pirates? I guess a little part of me was hoping they’d lay down and die so I could take the bounty!
While there is an effort underway to try to push them out of the Lave, Leesti and surrounding systems, it’s probably not something I can take part in. I’m hoping to work together with my brother to find out our family history, and finally put to rest the rumors…
