One thing I have noticed during my travels throughout highsec space is just how quiet it is, there could be over 100 people in local, and not a single word is uttered between those players. This makes me sad, so I like to encourage discourse where possible.
Sometimes, however, you find a system where the locals chat freely, such was the case with Nakugard, one of my favourite MTU hunting systems. The following conversations took place on the same night within that system.
It was around this time that I had recently received a 80m ISK bounty from a mission runner whose MTU I popped. From this conversation, I got the feeling that Anara wasn’t too sure if I was “one of the good guys”.
However, “good guy” or not, this MTU Hunter likes to end his conversations amicably.
Keldor spoke up once he saw me go suspect in local whilst I was attacking an MTU. I decided to link him the MTU killmail after I popped it, since he was clearly interested in what I was up to. Here’s that killmail for you. I was both surprised and happy to see the MTU’s owner speak in local afterwards, it seems that MTU Hunting really does get players talking.
There is indeed.
At some point prior to this vocal night, I was hunting MTUs in Nakugard whilst legendary ganker, Alt 00, was having an argument with a miner in local. I won’t go into details about the argument that was taking place, you can see it for yourself here on the Minerbumping blog. See if you can spot your friendly, local MTU Hunter in the screencaps.
Nakugard is a system filled with a real mix of players, and is situated between the trade hub, Hek, and the Sisters of EVE mission hub, Lanngisi. Because of this, it is often a hive of activity and drama, and I highly encourage you to visit this interesting system sometime.
