Since I began making posts about our army of suicide Catalysts, I have been receiving EVEmails from people interested in joining our gank fleets. Back when the New Order was all about bumping, things were simpler: An aspiring bumper could simply go to a New Order mecca (or any system, really), get into a bumping ship, and bump miners. Since bumpers could operate solo, and since they could not harm each other, there was no need for trust, or even cooperation.
Gank fleets are different, since mining ships typically require multiple gankers working together. Our Knights, by design, operate in teams. This means an aspiring New Order ganker needs to hook up with other Agents. There's also an element of trust involved, since a rebel could try to infiltrate a gank fleet.
The potential for a false Agent to do damage isn't that great. A saboteur can't fire at his fellow gankers when they undock (due to undock invulnerability), or while they're in warp. I suppose a fake Agent's only real chance would be to try shooting at other Agents during the gank itself, which would be of limited usefulness given a suicide Catalyst's short life expectancy. Or they could try warning the targets (who may be AFK). Either way, the fake Agent would be immediately burned, and at best they would botch a gank.
Even so, gank fleet commanders are likely to be wary about bringing strange new members into the fold. Thus far, our fleets have been comprised of bumpers' alts, and those for whom the bumpers have vouched. Yet the continued growth of our strength does require bringing in new gankers, just as we have always welcomed new bumpers. New gankers are very valuable, even if one can't be certain of their loyalty: By design, the ganker alts will be new characters, and even their mains will come from all over EVE.
It's a puzzle, to serve both the need for security and the need to welcome new gankers. What's the answer?
Aspiring Knights, if they have no preexisting connection to the New Order--in other words, random readers of this blog--must prove themselves. They must win the trust of the preexisting gankers/bumpers. The bar shall be set low--just high enough to make it impractical or not worth it for a saboteur to try.
First, an aspiring Knight should go to the New Order channel (channel: minerbumping, password: 315), so he has a chance of encountering our Agents. He should train and fit out a Catalyst, and be prepared to present himself before our Agents. After all, if you're going to be a ganker, you need a Catalyst anyway. Next, he should have a bio that declares his support for the New Order. Only a prideful rebel would balk at such a thing.
And finally, he should be willing to make a sacrifice. I refer to this as "Baptism by Concord". At the direction of the Agents in system, he should use his Catalyst to attempt a solo gank upon a Code-violating miner. An Agent will tell him which miner to shoot, to avoid bringing Concord to the wrong spot, and potentially to help clear a Concord squad that needs moving. A miner in an asteroid belt will usually do the trick.
A saboteur who intends to help the miners would therefore be required to attack a miner, and would lose a Catalyst. He would also need to swallow his pride and pledge loyalty in his bio, plus take direction from Agents. In other words, causing more trouble to himself than any Agent he might attack in the future.
Baptism by Concord wouldn't likely result in the death of the miner being attacked, since it would just be one Catalyst. It would serve as a picture of the ganker's future, embracing death in order to bring enlightenment to miners through the use of force.
There are additional tokens of loyalty that an aspiring Knight can provide. Though not necessary, they would serve as badges of trust. These would include having a character who is more than a day or two old, and being a shareholder in the New Order. These are not requirements, but would certainly be steps a saboteur is unlikely to take.
There you have it. I will link this post on the Become an Agent page. If you're an Agent and you get requests to join from people you know and trust, these steps can be skipped. If an unfamiliar character shows up and announces his intention to join, please refer him or her to this post. As always, bumpers can be trusted, but since ganker alts are trained specifically for Catalyst skills, we cannot expect aspiring gankers to become bumpers. The instructions set forth in this post should be sufficient.
Long live the New Order, which provides a solution to every problem!
Use afterburner, its better and free. For a sample, can watch a DCUO clip I've uploaded yo my youtube (murkdizz).ReplyDelete
i'm loving being an acting sky commander for the knights of the order. over the last weekend we've dome billion upon billions of ISK in damage.ReplyDelete
here's a video of us last night popping a mack with a 1.2b pod inside:
i'm hoping this serves as a useful how-to for a successful gank. we almost got a second mackinaw too. still, 1.5b is nothing to scoff at.
The next step is suicide ganking Freighters & Orca's.Delete
I agree that fcing these fleets have been some of my favorite moments in EVE. They also have been profitable too.ReplyDelete
"Joining a fleet enables a saboteur to shoot at his fellow fleet members, but since our fleet members generally have -5.0 security status, everyone can shoot at them anyway."ReplyDelete
Members of different corps cannot shoot at each other, even when in fleet together. The low security status is what enables it.
TIL. I'll run a quick edit. Overall principle is the same, I think.Delete
James touched on something in this article,that I mentioned in fleet last night, to whit the possibility of shooting your fleet mates, just before being popped by the doughnut eating popo, to a: whore on the killmail and b: claim a bit of any outstanding bounty on them. General consensus was to have a smart bombing frigate or destroyer as part of the fleet whose sole job was to collect on bounties and further annoy the people who placed them.ReplyDelete
Dangerous to our pods probably, hilarious definitely, possible maybe.
"I suppose a fake Agent's only real chance would be to try shooting at other Agents during the gank itself, which would be of limited usefulness given a suicide Catalyst's short life expectancy."ReplyDelete
This would be possible, though a bit silly, considering that we often have hostile neutrals waiting in field for us anyways.
Hostile neutral - only in EVE.Delete
The Dread Guristas Invulnerability Field we looted had some damage on it. It's possible he might have tried to overheat it as the reaper came for him. We thank him for his generous donation to the New Order!ReplyDelete
Who do I contact to join up. There are miners I have to gank.ReplyDelete
Come hither, to the fair land of Kamio, and present yourself!Delete
Attention to Newb Order Supporters, permit owners and share holders. Remove your bumper stickers and renounce your support now for the New New Order is coming and the cleansing of Kamio and Halaima will begin soon. There will be no reprieve to those who support gankers, scammers and extortionists. There is only one way to truly cleanse a system and that is to burn it down and begin again. All those supporting this disease will be destroyed.ReplyDelete
Long Live the New New Order! Long live the Kamio/Halaima accord and code of conduct. Long shall we reign. Resistance is futile!
Congratulations on your outstanding success.Delete
Would like to get this alt in to join in punishing non-compliant miners. My main is a shareholder, although minor, as well as a permit holder, although I rarely mine. Have been unable to get an invite so far. I should meet all above requirements.ReplyDelete
Contact us when you're in Kamio, or throw us an evemail!Delete
Because the best way to deter suicide ganks is to turn your exhumer into a loot pinata!ReplyDelete
All three of my eyes, are open.ReplyDelete
I confer my all I have to this brilliant cause, humanity must be saved, regardless of how this is achieved. Only The Order can achieve this momentous task!
Looking to join up, will head my alt to Kamio but I am on during the Asia night. (small stock holder, training up a cat now).ReplyDelete

Hey all I just came back into the game and have a toon with about 5 million SP and am now training the skills needed to gank the miners. It'll take about 2 days to finish. Does it have to be an alt because I only have one toon. Please let me know. Like I said I quit a while ago due to real life issues and just came back and am exited as this is what I want to do as well as exploration. Thank youReplyDelete
I started a ganking toon about a week ago and My skills are finally finishing up with a week to go. however when i joined minerbumping and tried to join fleets, even after i was baptized by concord and "tried to gank miners solo" I was rejected. I went to Uedama to try and join a fleet that was actively killing miners and anti code fleets. This guy names Chapo Muerte Ended up kicking me from the minerbumping channel and blocked me from communications. all i wanted to do was gank with his fleet and now i lose all my resources from minerbumping channel because his pansy ass got buttthurt from me contacting him to join fleet. like really? i flew 10 jumps to come join you and you spit in my face. still looking for other code enforcers however "Chapo Muerte" and his group in uedama will be shown that you dont spit in the newcomers face.ReplyDelete
may be useful for all, helpful article once and pardon me permission to share also here :ReplyDelete
