(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.
(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.”
(UUNN HQ) Pilots are reporting that today around 19:00 UTC, conflux sentient warning markers began appearing all over space, with markers in Amananth, Canis 9502, Hyperian Hook, Outer Third, Pulsar, and Purian Lake. ALL pilots are urged to exercise extreme caution.
(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:
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 →
(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 →
(UUNN HQ) For the first time in over four months, pilots have reported Conflux infestation activity at several points around space.
“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.”
(Solrain Core) In a surprising outcome, the funding applied-for by Conflux expert Professor Athena ShaiDen of Sutonia University was denied by Sorian Bank. The loan, which most expected to be granted, was to help mass-produce a special kind of narrow-beam scanner ShaiDen had developed. The scanner was used to take readings from Conflux infestations — with the goal of finding better ways to destroy — of even deter them.
Professor ShaiDen was unavailable for comment, but Carlo Adiar, TRI Corporation’s Director of Conflux Studies spoke out, “This is just incredible. Professor ShaiDen and I do not always see eye to eye, but this was a no-brainer. And the 500 million credits she was looking for is just a drop in the bucket for Sorian. Her reputation alone should have been plenty of collateral — but she had a working prototype! I don’t get it.” Continue reading →
