(Solrain Core Station) During a regular briefing today, when he was asked about possible reasons for the recent spate of Conflux sentient activity, TRI Corporation’s Conflux Specialist, Carlo Adiar pointed directly at jump-pilots.
“C’mon, isn’t it obvious?” he responded to a somewhat-shocked audience. “This pilot, RazorCut arranges a huge flux hunt where they kill like 30,000 drones. Then a few days later we see sentients everywhere, infestations everywhere and increased swarm activity to boot. What did they think would happen? And they cry about not having any Antiflux?”
When asked if he was aware of any plans for a tactical response, Adiar said, “Listen, we’re not a military organization. We have our finger on the pulse of what is going on and we consult with any faction that engages us. The Conflux situation has been nominal since the Dark Crossroads smack-down . . . but now because some pilots decide to organize a massive flux-hunt and pimp their stats, space has become much, much more dangerous for everyone.”
