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.
