Mysterious Ways


I received word from Agent Syds Sinclair about another successful mission--an undercover mission for the New Order. Syds joined a mining corp and brought a Raven along for extra protection.


Some miners thought it would be safe to mine in a 0.8 system in The Bleak Lands region. It would have been perfectly safe, had they the courage and honour to mine in compliance with the Code. But they did not, and they lost a billion isk in the blink of an eye. I wonder how long it takes to mine a billion isk worth of 0.8 ore?


After Syds won the 1v2 battle, the miners committed a serious breach of decorum by not offering congratulations. Is it just me, or do miners these days have no manners? I worry about the younger generations sometimes.


A piece of advice to all the miners out there: When a new member of your corporation opens fire and says "Hail James 315 and the New Order", it might be time to cut your mining op short.


Kuda Timberline wasn't willing to accept any responsibility for the part he played in the loss of his Hulk. For whatever reason, he put all the blame on Syds, who by all accounts was merely enforcing the Code.


The fireworks woke up the other miners in the corp. In a rare dignity, the miners graced EVE with their presence at keyboard.


Greg Utama wasted no time in rushing to judgment. He vowed revenge against Syds, even though Syds had only just joined the corp. I thought carebears were supposed to support new players?


Syds informed the corp that they had absolutely nothing to fear: An Agent of the New Order was in their midst. Kuda denied any wrongdoing, but there was plenty of ore in his hold that said otherwise.


Syds didn't want to kill the miners, but they didn't leave any other option available.


Every awox is a potential lesson for the miners of highsec. You can't assume that everyone in your corp will be cool with you breaking the Code. If they catch you, they are authorized to kill you.


Agents of the New Order use every tool at their disposal to ensure 100% compliance in New Order territory. Mining without a permit may seem like a good idea, but in the long run, crime doesn't pay.

  2. So a cop who infiltrates into a criminal organization is a coward? Those offenders should just aknowledge the law and surrender.

    1. Good point. Undercover law enforcement officers who infiltrate criminal organizations are not cowards. They are more likely to be courageous and level-headed, like Syd Sinclair!

      Delete
    2. Although the larger point is made about courage, these miners are not necessarily criminals, merely brainwashed souls who have not had the opportunity to hear the message of James 315 and are "dead in their sins" and unconverted. Just like the prophet and the desciples of Christianity, the Agents of the New Order must go to where the sinners are!

  3. Another glorious victory! Many words of praise to Syd Sinclair! But what's with this new trend of awoxing with ravens? Is it supposed to be subtle irony?

    1. Syds asked a rather noobish awoxer for help with an awox ship, and said awoxer referred Syds to use his own personal awox favorite.

    2. Train for a Mach, awox with it. Then you can bump people & blow them up at the same time!

  4. I missed it what exactly was this victory? A couple of ships that are easily replaced, I would have thought you'd get alot more but never mind. :). Losses are an acceptable part of doing business.

    1. This is a victory in many ways.

      1) Those miners just make ISK afk with the only goal of making more ISK. Making them lose a billion ISK is effectively lowering the ISK they're making. Victory.

      2) They have aknowledged the existence of a New Order of High Sec, they weren't aware of it. Victory.

      3) Those miners have been awaken from their slumber to get back to the keyboard and finally interact with each other in a mutiplayer game. Victory.

      4) Syd Sinclair's operation provided a nice story for the blog. Victory.

      5) Old and new EVE players will be inspired by this operation and they will have fun in EVE by trying to do it themselves. Victory.

    2. 1. 'Those miners just make ISK afk' - I don't think they were afk. Is lowering their isk/hr a really a victory, this seems a pretty shallow victory then because no real harm was done. I think you may have to revise that billion isk of damage downwards a little and also I make orcas so thx for that :)
      2. The existence of the New Order is not in doubt just its effectiveness. So now telling people of the New Order is a victory? I do not think so.
      3. Afraid not nothing has changed I'm afking right now. Soon going to take a nap, wake up, sell ice and buy some bpo's with the profit i make.
      4. Yes I like fairy tales too.
      5. It takes a special individual. The New Order has lots of 'special' people.

    3. Why can't you just say "GF" instead of acting butt hurt? We can be friends, it's a game.

      1) There are killmails in the post. One full billion loss in a few minutes, after succesful awoxing. Sounds like good ISKloss/time ratio.

      2) The point of the New Order is to spread the Code. It's been spread. Again, pretty straightforward.

      3) Risking losses like the one depicted here is clearly smarter than paying 10 million isk for a permit and following the code. New Order will eventually take all high sec, the more you wait the higher the risk to go back to the game you're not actually playing to find a greater loss than 10 million ISK. Miners with a good understanding of economy already bought their permit.

      4) I like fairy tales too, but I also like stories about what happens in EVE, like this one.

      5) Good job using insults that offend people with health problems in real life. The only real point you're making doing it is that you're a disrespectful prick.

    4. 'Good job using insults that offend people with health problems in real life. The only real point you're making doing it is that you're a disrespectful prick.'

      I didn't realise you had a 'health problem' I apologize to you and any of the New Order with these health problems that cause you to grief other players.
      'The only real point you're making doing it is that you're a disrespectful prick.' - This is the true rhetoric off the New Order do you really want the New Order representative on the CSM?
      Anyway point taken ;) you very special person.

    5. Bobbins, no need to be coy, just admit that you're a fan of the New Order.

    7. Actually, yes. That fierce warrior bears a startling resemblance to The Supreme Protector.

    8. You used the expression "special" people as an insult. It's the kind of insult that come from disrespectful kids. There's no need to be offensive. You're showing problems understanding the New Order, so it's no surprise that you can't understand a simple sentence.

  5. They obviously weren't afk because they asked why they were being shot while being shot

    1. As far as I can tell, the New Order generally deems every mining ship to be AFK, botting, or sometimes both, regardless of any evidence to the contrary.

      Delete
    2. New Order just seems to frequently change it's mind about what it's doing. At first James hated miners and wanted them to stop altogether (look up his eve forum posts). Then it was bots and bot aspirants. Now apparently every miner that doesn't follow the code seems to be deemed an afk bot aspirant who only mines for the sake of it, whether that's actually the case or not. So.. yeah roll a dice on how this lot work in any given week.

      Still, as roleplay goes it is imaginitive.

    3. There has been a rather un-subtle shift away from any "bumping" in the past months. Now it is pretty much a straight route to ganking. It would look as if the troll is out in the open, if viewed through the lens of logic.

      Delete
    4. They did not have a Permit to mine.

      In order to not be ganked or bumped, you must:

      Have a permit.
      Be at the keyboard.
      Be polite to people engaged in honorable pvp, such as ganking.

      There has been no change in the New order's Code. You folks are simply unfamiliar with it, and need to read it carefully.

      Delete
    5. Yes, they were at the keyboard.

      But they did not have mining permits. And they were not polite after their gank, and did not acknowledge a good gank with a GF in local.

      As for Bumping vs. Ganking, that is at the call of the Knights and Agents involved. Sales of Permits to Agents do dramatically increase after a ganking in system. So a gank does help the majority of miners that witness it make the correct decision, buy a Permit, and follow the Code.

    6. > There has been no change in the New order's Code

      There has been a change to the New Order's behaviour though. To the point where right now you basically go around telling people they have to follow a code they may or may not have heard of* or lose a ship or two.

      Awox them, gank them if you like, but don't try to hide behind the code to justify your act unless you give them a chance to pay before you do. These reports tend to suggest you don't do that. If I am wrong about that then I will stand corrected without argument.

      * and no, contrary to your beliefs, not everyone in New Eden has heard of New Order.

    7. Try to go break some laws in real life, and then tell the police that you didn't know the laws that you were breaking. They will tell you that ignorance is no excuse. Why do you think EVE, a game specifically designed to be a harsh, cold, universe, should be LESS harsh than real life?

  7. Syds won the 1v2 battle - a brave warrior ... he killed two barges. GF dude. GF.

  8. Syds deserves a medal for bravery in the face of adversity. A sterling effort from a rising star in the New Order ranks.

  9. OMG, YOU WON A BATTLE AGAINST 2 BARGES????? OMFG GET THE MEDIA ON THIS THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE. WHAT WAS THAT? HE DID IN A BATTLESHIP? A FREAKING BATTLESHIP??? OMFG!!! SOMEONE GIVE THIS GUY A MEDAL, HECK, GIVE HIM 2!

    On all seriousness though, what the f*ck.This isn't no good fight or them not complying with the code. This is your 'agents' going out and raping random corps.

    1. Without a permit they weren't adhering to the code in the first place.

      Even a permit doesn't mean you can go afk and you shiuld always respond to avoid being thought if as afk.

      Of course if you're reading the forum and can't see your eve ship then you are away from Eve.

      Delete
    2. After the Orca was destroyed, the owner of the barge could have given the Knight a GF, in local, and requested the Questions Three.

      This would have been good for a 24hr indulgence.

      Instead, the other miners in the corp behaved disrespectfully to the Knight, and sealed their fate. They will have to, at the very least, publicly apologize to her for their disrespectful behavior before they will be allowed to buy a permit.

      Delete
    3. Holly shit why would anyone apologize to little shits like you guys? I don't really get this GF shit what you're doing is nothing more then extortion claiming its to safe the highsec and shit like that is retarded. No one needs to do anything they don't want to do in a game... someone should have explained that to you guys.
