Highsec Miner Grab Bag #34

Almost a year of MinerBumping, almost a year of Highsec Miner Grab Bags! In that time, literally thousands of miners across highsec have paid their mining fees and pledged themselves to the New Order, all of their own accord.


Troy Toralen claims that miners only join the New Order because they're "forced into it". I don't believe that for a moment. Miners who read this blog, what say you?


Sparhawk en Damastes demonstrated his inability to distinguish between a computer game (which he's bad at) and real life (which he may also be bad at). It's no surprise that so many carebears think EVE and reality are the same thing: If you mine AFK and don't play the game while at your computer, you're mixing the two, blending EVE and your real life in unhealthy ways.


The New Order is everywhere these days: On your desktop computer, your laptop, even your telephone. This also means carebear tears are available on multiple formats, including Twitter. It was nice to see Kuda Timberline hasn't forgotten the message that Agent Syds Sinclair delivered by awoxing his corp several months ago. Become an Agent of the New Order and you'll be a legend!


Despite being a member of an alliance that prides itself on projecting power into lowsec and elsewhere without taking sov, Sindel Pellion didn't understand that the New Order can rightly claim authority in highsec. Given the high quantity and low quality of its population, highsec needs government more than any other part of the EVE galaxy.


Miners like Jobobhi987 Alabel must be the unluckiest people in the world. They always "just" left their keyboards for a "few seconds" before a Knight appeared and ganked them. Kind of like how miners who get bumped out of range retreat back to the station and claim that they just finished mining for the day.


When Russian miner Orta Maleus brought up diarrhea in local, it reminded me of Google Translate telling me that Universal Scum said he was "sending rays of diarrhea".


Today's Russian EVE players make me nostalgic for the days when their never-say-die nullsec alliances inspired fear throughout the galaxy. Their highsec miners can't quite do the job.


After Agent Runeme Shilter killed Arrash's Covetor and pod, Arrash offered an illustration of what's wrong today's polarized political environment: Everyone sticks to their talking points no matter what!


John Cadenza brought up a short list of his pet peeves during a heated discussion about the New Order. Interesting, but completely off-topic. The New Order is not a cult, it is not a monarchy (it's a democracy), and we never threaten. We always make good on our promises.


A surprising number of impressionable young EVE players try to find themselves by experimenting with illegal highsec mining. This is why Agents of the New Order are such a valuable resource--they mentor new players. Agents don't lecture anyone, but they do want EVE players to recognize that as glamorous as mining without a permit may seem, there can be dangerous side effects, such as exploding.


Perennial scold Jean Pelletier groused about EVE's game mechanics and the futility of doing battle against the New Order under such unfair conditions. Rebels, wise up: Whining isn't emergent.


Some carebear CEO's flunky sent me an EVEmail informing me that Agents Capt Starfox, Ailish Liu, and John E Normus successfully destroyed their corpmate's untanked Hulk. The carebears misinterpreted the outcome of this glorious battle as somehow being a bad thing. If they want to know the reason for the attack, they should read MinerBumping more often, as I already said that their permits would be forfeited if they violated the Code. Nevertheless, all Agents should be on high alert, as the Zulu People alliance has dramatically improved its military since I made that post: Its killboard efficiency has quadrupled from 3% up to a whopping 12%.


Ever since I first put it on a Miner Bingo square, I have wondered why highsec miners try to act tough by invoking lowsec. It seems so random. Why not nullsec or wormsec?


ThexBoss questioned Agent Galaxy Pig's right to engage in emergent gameplay by killing his Hulk. This is why we fight--we fight for our rights. Bot-aspirants would gladly trample the Code if they could. As long as the New Order exists, someone will stand up to bullies who would take away our rights.


I don't know the Code by heart, but then, I don't need to. Because the Code is in my heart. I can look at any situation and know instantly what the proper response is. My Agents are the same. So far, I have never once seen an Agent do the wrong thing. Imagine how nice it would be if you worked for an organization whose members never made a mistake!

  1. Oh, god dammit, not Sindel too.

    I'm disappointed.

    1. Who could have imagined that New Eden's premiere song-writer had so much anger and insecurity bottled up inside?

    2. @alana--pretty anyone could have imagined that. Musical inspiration typically comes from pain.

      Delete
    3. Instead of pain, she should draw her artistic inspiration from the Code - turn that frown upside down!

      Delete
    4. Suggesting that others should perform your demonstration for you, instead of jumping up and starting the trend yourself? How hisec carebear of you :/

      Delete
    5. Musical inspiration is a rational channeling of pain, you have to feel that pain without being dominated by it. Sindel, disappointingly, is dominated by ignorance of EVE's emergent gameplay philosphy, and hypocrisy too.

      I'm truly saddened, I expected more from someone who likes EVE enough to even go to Fanfest in Iceland :(

    2. Tornados have large guns and no neuts, drones or (typically) webs. Killing one with a frigate isn't all that amazing.

    1. I know. How can the person who sang "Makalu Cries" be not only a carebear, but also say the things she did about RL players. Confusing what people do in an MMO for who they actually are.

      You should read the part where she implies wartzilla isn't a nice person while having a polite discussion with her. At no time did he call her a "cock sucker" I can tell you that.

  4. So lets see Jobobhi987 Alabel:

    Scout reports mining lasers turn off
    I undock
    Warp to insta
    Warp to jump gate
    Jump to next system
    Warp to scout
    Start repossessing the Retriever and Pod of apparently non-afk miner

    I'm not a Time Lord. I've trained Evasive Maneuvering up a few levels. But I don't think that explains it. There is only one explanation. My Catalysts aren't normal Catalysts flown by the rest of New Eden. My Catalysts are special. My Catalysts go to up to 11.

  9. WE all know I do not agree with you NOF, but one thing I will say is, you should keep your harassment inside the game. I've caught wind of some of your members branching outside of the game with their grief tactics.

    Not saying it's all of you, but you should probably get your group under control before those few become a problem for the whole.

    Those who it has happened to want it to stop and have told those individuals as such. A fair warning is to get your group to stop immediately.

    1. Haha, in a post where miners have wished IRL death on Eve players and Sindel referred to fellow players in an out of game forum as "giant, cock-sucking douchebags with no soul and daddy issues" You'd like to come here and claim its the New Order that are the problem. Excuse me, hahahahah again.

      If someone, anyone, is harassing you outside of the game you should report it to CCP and the appropriate authorities now. The difference between the New Order and virtually the entire carebear community is we realize the difference between a game and reality. I'm willing to bet 100 quatloos that you are full of crap with your charges. But if not, don't post vague threats. Take it to the authorities because no one should tolerate out of game harassment.

      Delete
    2. Post proof or STFU, Botten.

      We aren't the ones who are constantly making IRL death threats in local.

      Delete
    3. Honestly Malcolm I don't care if others have posted it, I urge them to leave it in game as well. If you're getting bent out of shape to that extent over a game it's time for a break.

      And it has been brought up to CCP and is more than likely going further than that, as said those involved have been told to cease, and have not yet done so. So I'm only saying to your group as a whole that you should watch your own. I've told my people to keep it chill as well and they have. It's not about "your group vs mine" at this point it's the well being of all players. If you're going to try to make an argument against it then you're an idiot.

      Also I didn't say anything about me posting "charges" if i was pestered outside of the game, I'd not only make sure it went no further, I'd attempt to take legal action. Silly? sure why not, but as you also said I would not tolerate out of game harassment.

      As for you Agent Trask, grow up. I'm here trying to bring awareness to an issue that should be nipped in the bud and you're acting like you're 12. I also wouldn't compromise the identity of the parties involved which is why i left that as vague as possible.

      Not a threat, just a fair warning and pointing towards awareness.

      There are only two pertinent questions about Botten:

      1. Is the fact that his name is homophonic to 'Botting' intentionally ironic, or unintentionally ironic?

      and

      2. Which fundamental error is more central to the complete incomprehensibility of his writing-- mixed-up pronoun madness, or continual reliance on confused run-on sentences?

      Those of you talking *to* Botten, instead of *about* Botten, are doing it wrong.

      Delete
    5. "Those of you talking *to* Botten, instead of *about* Botten, are doing it wrong."

      I think you summed it up perfectly.

    6. A) It stands for Robot, which obviously I am not. And who cares how I type? o.O

      B) If you're going to try to insult me please try a bit harder.

      C) I bring up a legitimate point and trolls and illegitimate children alike try to what? Make it less so of a point?

      Seems to me like you all don't understand the severity of what I'm saying, but that's ok. Continue to be ignorant. Whatever, like I said, I came to give awareness and yet you retards are still on about "NewOrder4lyfe#yoloswag." Get over that and come to you're senses or something, geezus.

      Delete
    7. We didn't take Botten seriously, so he tries to change our opinions by calling us 'illegitimate children' and 'retards'. Persuasive.

      Delete
    8. Believe me I've called you that even before now. And you don't have to take me seriously. o.o You are the typical gamer kid, behind the computer it's OK to say whatever makes you feel big and bad. Apparently you aren't aware of how serious an issue Harassment is, but that's OK too. I don't take the New Order seriously so you attack my typing style and ideas. Persuasive.

      Those who it pertains too, whether they be on this page or not, should. If they choose not to, then that's on them. Is it not the right thing to do to try to stop it before it goes further? Hmmm...I wonder perhaps that's real "justice."

      Delete
    9. I think everyone here can "understand the severity" of Botten having "caught wind".

      Except for Botten.

      I'm amused that Botten's response to a request for proof is to resort to name calling.

      Also it seems as though he is projecting his own attributes onto others.

      Delete
    10. Comes here and calls harassment the destroying of internet spaceships in a game about destroying internet spaceships.

      Wants to be taken seriously.

      Delete
    11. Dudes...blow up what ships you want, fucks to be give are 0. Go on to other media and harass people, fucks given. I say "Hey your group is doing this, just saying you should stop them." I get, "Oh you're terrible at typing, you're nothing important, blah blah." Get a clue, it's for YOUR information so YOU can continue to enjoy your internet spaceships without any real trouble. Yes so you can continue to be annoying in game. One bad apple spoils the bunch. o.e

      Does it matter whether or not I have "caught wind?" Fuck no. But it matters enough to some people to have it taken higher, and to people who can do something about it.

      Also can they understand? It doesn't seem as though they can, seeing as how every time someone says something against them they turn insta-troll. It's a real issue, being brought to what I had hoped was a real audiance. Apparently that's too much to ask for. One guy trying to bring some information to you annnnnd into defense mode goes the group with the harassers in it. Right, they understand all right.

      My response to a request for proof was that the people who need to know specific information know it, and that's not you. Don't try to make yourself feel any more important than you are.

      Projecting my own attributes? Haha oh please do explain that one, I'd love to see what you've concocted in your head about that.

  10. The comments by SIndel Pellion really surprise me. Given that she has in the past encouraged all types of nefarious activities in EVE why would she single out The New Order with a carebear stare. We didn't gank her did we? Maybe she has spent too much time in 0.0 space? Seems to be the go to place for carebears these days.

  11. I bet the revelation about Sindel has really upset most of NO's masturbation routines. Still, I'm sure you'll all slip back into thinking about James 315 with no problems at all. Just shut your yes really tightly, try to ignore your worsening RSI and think of your savior. That should get you back on track.

  13. Sindel,

    I thought you were amazing before, and listened to Titan for ages. Now I think you really are an angel. Maybe your Angel Project was real after all? You may have lost some support from complete ass hats but you have gained further admiration from a multitude of thousands.

    3. So, not having a fake internet name means I can't be polite and point out that smack-talking is not a thing you should admire people for?

    4. Well I mean, smack talking about someone smack-talking...double conundrummmm -in big letters-

      Delete
    5. Do you even know what smack-talking is? That's very different from making a point - actually it's the opposite.

      I will explain the point of the first answer to you:

      Smack-talking (insulting players over the internet instead of targeting the game character) is a sign of stupidity;

      Pretending to talk not only for yourself but even for imaginary others you didn't consult (thousands of them in this case) is a sign of not having solid logic to support your opinion, thus needing the imaginary crowd to "back it up".

      Thanks for reading.

      Delete
    6. I will add examples:

      Making a point: "Smack-talking doesn't make you cool and it's a sign you lost the argument. Also it makes you look like a moron".

      Smack-talking: "Shut up you cretin, you have issues seek for medical help I will kill you idiot!"

      Being anonymous or having a fake name you only use for commenting doesn't make a difference in this instance, it's all about the point.

      Hope I cleared things up. 0/

  15. PL mining in highsec and crying like bot-aspirants fresh out of World of Warcraft? Oh now the mighty have fallen. Seems like the New Order is the only group that has standards anymore.

  16. lol @ new world order, you need a motto "failing to take over highsec since [insert year here]." This blog is an amusing trophy to sad tactics and mental instability, but hey if it keeps you off anti-depressants or cutting yourself or what ever it is you kids do these days instead of talking to your parents. This whole anger=tears thing shows how askew you children in the gaming community has gotten from reality. (bravo at being part of the problem in the world) ::slow clap::
    (btw i hope this is all ran by kids, cause if not... wow... get a life or maybe relationship lol)
