What happened:
Colten Aggley and I had a feud the entire round about him stealing a refined bluespace core. After this him and his mining buddy Landen Mcloskey finally killed me after I started attacking them, with the miner soul sharding me a minute or so before the round ends. I have suspicion that they are metafriends since they barely interacted prior to defending each other to the death even before the shuttle. I understand the rules of escalation, I did severely wound the roboticist once to defend my property but it never went further than that. After this he stole my unlocked mech and refused to give it up even after RD and HOS requested it. I am unsure if that counts as escalation or not. To me it just feels like griefing.
