(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.
“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 →
(GBS Station) After TRI Corp. initially announced that it believed its TRI-TRAN-1 automated transport ship had probably been destroyed by storms or Conflux, pilot RazorsKisspublicly claimed that he had destroyed the ship and its cargo — as revenge for an alleged “hit” put on him by TRI Asst. Director of Conflux Studies (TRI-DEF-CSD), Carlo Adiar.
“This pilot needs to be punished — severely,” said TRI Corporation CEO, Garth Taren. “First of all, his rationale is ridiculous. It’s either a lie or a delusion. I’d love to see the ‘intelligence’ produced that implicates Mr. Adiar.”
“I have no idea what the real motivation was here, but the load of gold and platinum lost,while very valuable, was not the real loss here. We lost 25 antiflux that we had been able to retrieve from the old Conflux Containment Center (CCC) facility in Inner Aman. They were destined for public markets to help alleviate the shortage. And the most tragic loss was a data disk containing invaluable, irreplaceable conflux data — which we also recovered from the CCC facility.”
“We have contacted Solrain, Octavius and Quantar to discuss possible political implications, since the actions of this pilot have broad cross-factional impacts.”
Sentient Flurry For about a week we were seeing some rather unusual sentient activity that typically include concurrent markers all over space, infestation and a few sent-fights with pilots. I’m told things have been quiet so far this week.
Flux Geek vs Flux Hunter And related to the Sent-flurry, we had TRI Corp bureaucrat Carlo Adiar blaming flux-hunting pilot RazorsKiss (Adiar “erroneously” called him RazorCut — which was kind of funny if you ask me) for the surge in conflux actvity — basically saying the conflux were retaliating. RazorsKiss took offense and challenges Adiar to a duel (yeah … they’re Octs). TRI’s PR department jumped into the middle and everyone went grumbling back to their corners. Continue reading →
(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.”
(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.”
