Infestation Overload

by Thane Carios

(Outpost Station)  Infestations have been popping up across space with increased frequency over the past couple of weeks — with some of them seeming impregnable.  What make this current flurry even more unusual is that there have been no reports of sentient conflux seeding or defending the infestations.infest2

“Something is definitely going on here,” said Carlo Adiar, the head of Conflux Studies for TRI-DEF (TRI Corporation, Defense & Security Division).  “And it’s not good.  We’re seeing infestations on the increase and nuke stocks on the decrease.  Pilots better get after this quickly or we’re going to have a problem.” Continue reading

TRI Corp Responds to Pilot Complaint

UUNN Newswire

(Solrain Core) TRI Corporation has released the following statement, responding to a complaint about statements made by Carlo Adiar, its Asst. Director of Conflux Studies:

Although we will not refute the basic premise raised by Mr. Adiar — that there may very well be a cause/effect relationship between current surge in sentient Conflux activity and the extensive Conflux-hunt operation held two weeks ago — we believe that the way in which his message was delivered was not ideal.  For that we will apologize.

But we will very clearly point out that Mr. Adiar neither stated nor intended any disrespect to pilot samwise, in whose honor the conflux-hunt was held.   Any contention otherwise is without substance or merit.

Conflux Specialist Blames Pilots for Conflux Aggression

by Thane Carios

(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.”

Awards Announced for Samwise Memorial Event

by Yaz Shanndar

(UUNN HQ) After a week-long flux-hunt with 26 pilots participating, the Samwise Memorial Flux Hunt came to an end last Saturday.  The event, which was sponsored by pilot RazorsKiss of squad FluxGuts had pilots of all level rushing to max out their conflux-kill-counts, and even had a few long-missing veterans returning returning to honor pilot Samwise — who, sadly, passed-on last year.

Top prizes for the overall number of flux-kills went to:

Sinver (3,025 flux kills) – Cesium Medal; 2mm credits; PCE-5
Rail69 (1,490 flux kills) – Platinum Medal; 1mm credits; PCS-1
Cyraxx666 (1,272 flux kills) – Antimony Medal; 500k credits

All other participants received a Captain’s Commendation for their efforts; and RazorsKiss is being awarded the Echoes of Hope award for his significant efforts in sponsoring, promoting and running the week-long contest. Continue reading

Fears Grow Over Conflux Inroads

by Thane Carios

(Solrain Core)  Changes in Conflux spawn patterns has begun to raise concerns among pilots.  There have been confirmed changes in spawn behaviors in a number of sectors — in some instances, the spawn strength has decreased, but in the majority of cases, pilots have been seeing higher-level Conflux drones appearing.

“This is nothing to worry about,” said Carlo Adiar, Asst. Director of Conflux Studies at TRI Corporation.  “We have seen Conflux patterns change periodically and see no particular threat-pattern here.” Continue reading

Pilots Report Infestations

by Thane Carios

(UUNN HQ)  For the first time in over four months, pilots have reported Conflux infestation activity at several points around space.

Infest Map“There does not appear to be any particular patter at this point,” said Carlo Adiar, Assistant Director for Conflux Studies at TRI Corporation (TRI-R/CSD).  “I do not see this as a dangerous incursion at this point … just more of a traffic nuisance.”

When vorlon31 was contacted for an interview about the recent infestations, he simply responded “ALL FLUX MUST DIE.”
