So it is with the miners of highsec. The New Order has dealt with enough miners to be able to draw some sweeping conclusions. For example, when Agent Mildron Klinker encountered Antiuk's fail-fit Retriever, he knew Antiuk was in desperate need of the Code.
Antiuk > lol mildronTen minutes after being ganked, Antiuk made a triumphant return to his keyboard. Despite losing his Retriever, he was rather pleased with himself.
Antiuk > i got all my ore back
Antiuk > so erm your suicide gank
Antiuk > yeah...
Antiuk > WORTH
Mildron Klinker > i dont think you have it back ;-)
Antiuk > 2.8 mil out of 2.9 mil recovered
Antiuk > so yeah
Antiuk > fuck you
Mildron Klinker > oh well, Kill: Antiuk (Retriever) need to replace that first ;-)Let's return to the subject about judging books by covers. Having seen Antiuk's Retriever fit, and his reaction to being ganked, what conclusions would you draw about him? The length of his EVE career? His corp affiliation, if any?
Antiuk > i have
Antiuk > insurance + alliance funds
Antiuk > so again
Antiuk > FUCK
Antiuk > YOU
Mildron Klinker > please keep local clean
Antiuk > kiss my arse
Antiuk > stupid pirate cocksucker
You might be surprised. Antiuk has been playing EVE since 2008. Most of that six-year period has been spent mining in highsec. He is the CEO of a 30-member corp. The lesson to be learned here is that all highsec miners are pretty much the same. Young or old, NPC corp member or CEO, they are all useless apart from the Code.
Antiuk > learn to gonk with styleHaving lost his 1v1 duel with Mildron, Antiuk nevertheless saw fit to give him some advice. Antiuk was a veteran player, after all.
Antiuk > or go low sec
Antiuk > at least make sure u get the booty
Antiuk > to cover your costs
Mildron Klinker > lol, i actually made a profit :D
Antiuk > sureAntiuk has spent many years in the Leremblompes system. Somehow he managed to avoid learning about the New Order and highsec's Saviour. This is why Agents move around so much. If the carebears won't come to us, we will go to them.
Antiuk > 100k
Antiuk > to cover that ship
Antiuk > and ammo and weapons
Mildron Klinker > i dont pay for ships
Antiuk > oh sorry forgot eve gives u free ships
Antiuk > and weapons
Antiuk > and kit
Antiuk > and ammo
Antiuk > they have a "Bad pirate fund"
Mildron Klinker > actually, James 315 does indeed ;-)
Antiuk > course he does
Antiuk > wellAntiuk was forced to admit that he experienced total defeat. But let's be real: Someone willing to spend 6 years mining in highsec is bound to have a high tolerance for pain. He shrugged off the loss and sucked on the pacifier of killrights.
Antiuk > mildron
Antiuk > 1 month of global kill rights
Antiuk > at 0 cost
Mildron Klinker > Antiuk congrats, no use to anybody :D
Antiuk > except u have 29 days of not being able to fly without being freee ganked
Mildron Klinker > euhm, you want to see my list ? :P
Leo Kovalenski > Mildron Klinker happens to be -10 with a 300M+ bounty... killrights are a poor consolation, sorry Antiuk
Antiuk > But setting it global will make me feel better
Leo Kovalenski > maybe someone will convince him to "elite PvP" in a Macariel :)The miner was ignorant (or feigned ignorance) about the Code, but he was very up-to-date with the latest in carebear philosophy. He wallowed in self-pitying complaints about gankers shooting people who "can't fight back". Because he was unwilling to fight back, he didn't even consider himself a "player"!
Antiuk > Doubt it
Antiuk > that requires skill :P
Antiuk > and PvPers fight back
Mildron Klinker > hey, are you a player ?
Mildron Klinker > it's called Player vs Player, so, yeah, Elite PVP ;-)
Antiuk > Yeah but pvp means they fight back
Antiuk > anwyaysAt last, Antiuk opened his mind to the joys of the Code. He cited a provision allowing miners to get a 24-hour mining pass if they can answer the Supreme Protector's Questions Three.
Antiuk > Where was my one day reprieve?
Antiuk > Iwasnt excessive mining
Antiuk > - If a miner does not wish to purchase a mining indulgence, he may still be granted a one-day reprieve, if he is able to correctly answer the Supreme Protector's Questions Three.
Antiuk > i didnt get my questions
Antiuk > nor a reperieve
Antiuk > u just came in and gayed it up
Antiuk > read your own rules
Antiuk > IF A MINER DOES NOT WISH TO PURCHASE A MINING INDULGENCEReading the Code is a fine thing, but understanding it is even better. Antiuk felt he was somehow entitled to something, despite the fact that he'd never answered the Supreme Protector's Questions Three.
Antiuk > HE MAY STILL BE GRANTED A ONE-DAY REPRIEVE
Antiuk > I WANT my fucking ship
Antiuk > and questions
Mildron Klinker > you can contact our Surpreme Protector, and he will give you your questionsNow the carebear considered himself an expert in the Code. Everyone knows that if you're stopped by a police officer, you don't lecture him about law enforcement. Nor do you tell him you'll report him to the chief and "have his badge". In New Order territory, Agents of the New Order are even more powerful than police officers. Why would you give them less deference?
Antiuk > give me his name
Antiuk > im going to speak to him
Antiuk > give it up
Mildron Klinker > James 315 is the person you can contact for the questions, Antiuk
Antiuk > is he online now?
Mildron Klinker > and if i did something wrong, he will be happy to reimburse your ship too. Might need to send him a mail though
Antiuk > Oh im gunna, im fairly certain u warping in and ganking me
Antiuk > isnt a one day reprieve
Leo Kovalenski > if anyone in this system is not being ganked by Mildron Klinker and would like free max orca bonuses, just let me know.Every miner has his own favorite Miner Bingo quotes. Antiuk really took a liking to the "You're not following your own CODE" square. His EVE career stood precariously on a razor's edge. One false move and he would slip into the darkness, becoming a space lawyer. Agent Mildron Klinker was determined not to let that happen. He wanted to guide this carebear into a life of Code-compliance. Would Mildron succeed, or would Antiuk only produce more tears?
Irisong Solette > funny thing about hisec...
Irisong Solette > after living in null for a while previously...i feel safer there
Irisong Solette > at least their i know who is out to get me :D
Mildron Klinker > hehehe, i go out there and i hardly meet anybody, in highsec, i meet alot of people, some are happy, some are not, right Antiuk ?
Antiuk > Some of us get raped by u not following your own code of conduct
