he contacted me the other day 3 hours before downtime, advising he had a bunch of Russian crustaceans scuttling about their undersea kingdom, clacking pincers and suchlike. he would attempt to get a way in for us, he said, by ninja-probing the E175 C4 static and squirreling a way to k-space. None of this happened, of course, or you would see some Russian cap kills on zkillboard. However, in the attempt to generate an entrance, he rolled into a C4 and noted a Vargur on d-scan. he pasted the d-scan result in chat and we both Q.Q over the fact there's so many bears going un-ganked.
M22 - Vargur
Tractor - 'Packrat' Mobile tractor unit
Eventually we gave up on establishing a way in, and put it off.
Meanwhile in another wormhole, Boundless Exploration was probing their way out of their C3 and went through a C4 into a second C4 Wolf Rayet system and mentioned having a Vargur and mobile tractor unit on scan, could you guys come over and help gank it?
So I asked if the Vargur was named M22, and whether it was a Packrat tractor?
"How did you know?"

Remember...someone I know is watching you rat.
