And the Beat Goes On

The best miners don't need to be ganked before they learn to buy a permit and follow the Code. Some miners come to their senses after being ganked once. Other miners need to be ganked two or three or four times. As the number of times they've been ganked goes up, the probability that they'll follow the Code approaches 100%.


This is where teamwork comes in. After a Knight of the Order ganks a carebear, the carebear will continue to be vulnerable to attacks by other Agents until he surrenders. Dr Wiwwy and Agent 057 happened upon illegal miner TDD Dominaters. They recognized him. They killed him.


TDD didn't bother convo'ing the Knights who destroyed his Mackinaw. Instead, he rekindled his friendship with Agent Malcolm Shinhwa. You'll recall that TDD was the subject of two MinerBumping posts this August. Long story short, TDD made a fool of himself, forcing his corp's CEO to ride to the rescue by paying off Malcolm in the amount of 100 million isk.


Rebel miners often argue with our Agents. The result is always the same. Our Agents are just as formidable in private convos as they are on the battlefield.


Malcolm still had a link to the screenshots of his convo with TDD's old boss. TDD's chance to win the argument was quickly slipping through his fingers.


TDD didn't realize that Lenda Shinhwa was Malcolm Shinhwa's alt. It's ironic: Normally, rebels love to accuse everyone of being everyone else's alts.


TDD finally got to the point, explaining why he had an axe to grind. His ship had been blown up. Typical carebear--it always comes down to money.


Malcolm asked TDD the same question every crying carebear should be asked: "Well, did you have a permit?" TDD didn't want to buy a permit, but he didn't want to deal with the consequences of not having one. His sense of entitlement was staggering.


TDD couldn't link his lossmail, but he said that someone named "sean" was "in his account". An admission of illegal account sharing?


The conversation hit a rough patch. TDD didn't know what a "km" was, and didn't know how to link a killmail. Now, before any of you start calling out the New Order for picking on new players, remember what we've learned: "New" players are never actually new. TDD has been playing EVE for nearly eight months. That's more than thirty weeks playing the same video game. I've said it before, but it's surprising how little you can learn after AFK mining for that long.


Because the New Order loves to help people learn about the game, Malcolm patiently explained how to find a lossmail and link it in chat. Thus was Malcolm able to see the Mackinaw kill in the first screenshot of this blog post.


When Malcolm asked how he was to blame for TDD getting himself busted for illegal mining again, TDD started to huff and puff. If you've been in the business of helping miners long enough, you can tell when they're building up to a tear "climax".


TDD concluded the conversation by blowing his stack. Did he buy a permit and turn to the Code? No, not this time. But having been ganked once again, the probability of his Code-compliance ticked upward one more tick. All Agents of the New Order, take heart: If a miner refuses you, it's only a matter of time before more Agents pick up where you left off.

    1. How would you know what "they always feel"? How could you possibly stalk them all simultaneously? There would need to be thousands of clones of you, wandering the Earth like demonic armies of Armageddon.

      Leave it to me to arrive to the party late. If I had only checked our site before I sold that permit. Yea I just sold that permit and TDD said nothing about his run in with you Malcolm. By the way the NODD permit office is closed for the rest of the weekend. At the rate we're selling permits we're not going to have anybody left to kill.

  4. it's still just bullying and piracy, to claim anything else is delusional and disingenuous.

    2. If you fail to pay your taxes, the IRS freezes your bank accounts. If you rob a bank, the police may shoot you. If you send a powdered substance to a government official, you are likely going to prison.

      But when the New Order enforces the Code in highsec, bot sympathizers call it bullying and piracy. Mafia! Extortion, they cry.

      Look outside. There are not black helicopters spying on you. Obama is not going to take your guns.

      The New Order is the government. Get used to it. Want a different government? Then do something. Perhaps stage a nonviolent protest of mining barges huddled in a mass.

      Until then, recognize that James 315 is your saviour. All of highsec except for a minority of bot commanders and bot aspirants recognize this fact. Hell, even large nullsec alliances recognizes James 315 as the leader of highsec.

      The "it's just bullying and piracy" argument reminds me of all of the "innocent" people in jail and all of those crazies who claim taxes are illegal.

      Read the Code.

      Embrace the Code.

      Live the Code.

      Life is so much simpler when you follow these core principles.

    3. That's only because the shutdown dried up the funding to fuel the black helicopters, and because Obama taking everyones guns would require him to actually do something, and this administration is firmly against doing things.

    4. Good thing James 315 doesn't have a term limit. He freely hands out guns while insisting that farmers do away with their evil machines and plant each seed one by one with caring, loving attention.

      Is James 315 Amish?

    2. so much bullshit spewing from the mouths of butthurt babies. can you offer your twisted view on HOW what the New Order does is a scam?
      last time i checked, you dont GET anything from a scam, you lose what you have, and there is ZERO benefit to you.
      perhaps your reading comprehension is as bad as your reasoning.
      purchase of a permit, and adherence to The Code brings NOTHING BUT PROFIT to someone who only cares about isk in the first place. you dont have to fear being ganked, your competition is eliminated FOR you. the polite, and witty banter available from any and all Agents, and Knights of the New Order is worth that 10 mill just by itself. if you cant be bothered to sit in front of your computer while you play the game, then dock up, or blow up. THOSE are the options.
      please dont worry about James' wallet. if the New Order simply asked for donations to help remove bots from the game, there would be no need to offer the permits as a token of our gratitude, or keep the miners safe while we are in system with them. OH, you didnt know the New Order did that? you didnt know we get amazing intel from compliant miners daily? those same people are the "scammed oppressed masses" you choose to insult? pretty small-minded arent you? i guess thats why you chose to post under....Anonymous.
      of course, noones ever resorted to homophobic slurs to make themselves feel better in their own cracked psyche, and nice way to end your post by misquoting a classic. your mouth is as ugly as your soul. they both appear to need a cleaning.

    4. and as for the fact of they asked for donations of removing bots from the game the only thing i see is them harrassing people people who still have to pay no matter if they are at the pc or people who have to pay if they dont answer in 5 seconds you show me where they have actually done something to bots then yea ill donate myself but all ive seen is them going after miners at the keyboards. watched the same bots in my system doing the same thing for 2 months send code the info and you know what nothing happened of course you cant get a good blog writing about blowing people up who arent going to say anything back to them

  9. attempting to explain to new order members that what they do is akin to schoo lyard bullying is similar to arguing evolution with creationists, they are either incapable or unwilling to see it for what it really is.

      Saying that New Order activities are akin to schoolyard bullying implies that highsec mining makes one into a child, and therefore instantly philosophically aligns you WITH the new order. Schoolyard bullying of adults pretending to be children isn't actually morally reprehensible. Arguing evolution with creationists is a really stupid idea, if the debate is actually about whether apple iPhones were evolved or created. Hint: they were created.

      Delete
  10. making an analogy between school yard bullying and the actions of the new order does not imply that high sec miners are children nor that high sec mining makes one childish. if any implication can be drawn, it would be fairer to imply that operatives of the new order are acting in a childish fashion by engaging in such bullying activities. any bullying whether it is of a child or to use your own words 'an adult acting like a child' is morally reprehensible,. justify your statement and provide a situation where bullying is moral. your claim of a philosophical alignment with the new order is poorly based and cannot even be justified if high sec miners were in fact children. the evolution of a product vs evolution of spieces is not a fair comparison and is clearly an attempt of deflect the argument nothing more. iPhone's have been created and designed by minds, species are not.

      " the evolution of a product vs evolution of spieces is not a fair comparison and is clearly an attempt of deflect the argument nothing more. iPhone's have been created and designed by minds, species are not."

      Any comparison can be fair, you can't simply look at the things under comparison, but at the properties to be compared, the standards applied, and the purpose of making the comparison. Clearly, that comparison sailed well over your head, because you stated some obviously true facts as if that were relevant and a real reply.

      "justify your statement and provide a situation where bullying is moral."

      That is not necessary to justify my statement. My point isn't that bullying can be moral, but that schoolyard bullying of adults pretending to be children isn't actually bullying at all--the adults are free to stop pretending to be children and/or leave the schoolyard, as they aren't legally required to be there like actual schoolchildren would be.

      "if any implication can be drawn, it would be fairer to imply that operatives of the new order are acting in a childish fashion by engaging in such bullying activities."

      No, because calling a tail a leg does not make it so, it only implies that you think tails should be called legs.
