Doomsday Cancellation


It was the eve of the March 1st rebel apocalypse. The carebears and rebel sympathizers of highsec exchanged excited whispers.


No one knew exactly what the resistance was planning to unleash...


With no official leaders of the resistance around, everyone could only wait with baited breath and anticipation.


The clock ticked over to March 1st 00:00 EVEtime.


Nothing had happened yet, but as with any apocalypse, there were time zones to consider. Which was the official one?


As March 1st went on with nothing out of the ordinary occurring, people began to doubt.


Light mockery broke some of the tension. Perhaps the New Order wasn't under threat?


By the second of March, the cloud had lifted entirely. The New Order managed to survive the March 1st doomsday, partly because the rebels didn't actually do anything on March 1st.


Things returned to normal, and blood valentine's threats were soon a distant memory. Once again, highsec was at peace. This is cause for celebration. And yet, I fear our fight...


...is only beginning...

  1. There is definitely a sense of anticipation towards the end of this post, as far as I can see. Maybe they meant the Ides of March, makes it a little more dramatic. Maybe this Flower Revage Cartel has something to it after all, if it has James posting like this, unless he's being sarcastic about it.

  2. Surely Mine Teck knows better than anyone that we give out TS details to every miner who wants to talk to us?

  5. I fear Mine Teck will return with the Reaper invasion forces and annihilate HighSec. I hope James 315 can contact Commander Shepard in time!

  7. This is the funniest thing I've read about a game ever. I sent in a large donation just because it was so good. The economics of this game make no sense. The highest reward comes in systems with the lowest risk. Frankly, its boring. And PvP just for pew-pew is more fun in CoD. PvP over finite resources would be awesome, but the best paying resources are in hisec. I was considering letting my subscription lapse. I might stay around though just to see how miner bumping turns out.

    1. You can have the New Order TS IP for free by going to Kamio and complaining.

      We give out the address and log in to our complaints department freely.

      Mine Teck provided quality tears there.

      Strawberry!

  13. Probably a typo, but it's "bated breath", not "baited." It's an archaic form of "abated" == diminished, which survives in contemporary usage primarily in this expression. The sense is that the breath is held or shallow, as in anticipation.
