"After 24 hours fighting can legally occur between those involved."
Do you think they read about my hunting expedition the other day and wanted to test my skill? Since they declared the war against us, is it wrong of me to be consulting my agents for my antagonists' locations?
My radio crackles and I hear different corpmates snickering and giggling. Of course the entire corp received the war dec, and it seems the entire corp had the same idea as me.
I can't help but remember the last team I led. My primary call was met with replies like:
"hey, why is my wingman locking me?"
"this mining laser doesn't seem to be damaging them"
"i think i hit self destruct"
"we're shooting all the purples, right?"
"stop shooting me"
"how do I close the star map?"
"how do you make this shield drone work"
All this and more, in local, from my team.
This was met with quite a few cat-calls from the locals, along the lines of "hahaha noobs".
Until they realized, too late, that we'd just podded every last one of them.
Never underestimate your opponent, a decisive opening battle can go far in instilling fear in the hearts of your foes. Unless they have unlimited funds; and then it's just nonstop fun.
