Nice Customs office you got there…

… Be a shame if it got destroyed…

I logged on last night to discover that another corp had erected a customs office on a low-sec planet that a couple of alliance-mates use for PI.

That wouldn’t have been a problem, except that the taxes were absurdly high, and if it’s one thing that rankles, it’s giving money to other people.

My CEO had a polite chat with the corp that anchored the POCO, which can be summarised by these options:

  1. Lower the tax rate, or
  2. Watch it burn

then we reinforced it to demonstrate the gravity of our request.

I’m happy to report that the situation has now been resolved satisfactorily.

Low-sec: a lot more like Mafia Wars than you’d think.

    I trust that you’ve also arranged for them to pay a … reasonable … rent for your continued permission to have their office in orbit.

    Diplomacy at work or Maffia Diplomacy and Negotiation. Interesting times these are.

    And then again, more POCO’s need to go BOOM so i can sell more of my P4 on the market. Fun times either way.
