Highsec Miner Grab Bag #43
I have my own goons? I love EVE. Welcome to the forty-third edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
liberty sent an ominous message to Agent Bing Bangboom. News about me on Reddit? Let's check it out:
The EVE subreddit was electrified by a report that CCP plans to fire me out of a cannon IRL. But as you can plainly see, I survived the week unscathed and distinctly uncannoned. It was just an idle rumor. In any event, CCP lacked the gunpowder for such a feat; they exhausted their supply by repeatedly shooting themselves in the foot all last month.
Most people understood it was just a joke, but some carebears believed the human cannon rumor. A quick look at liberty's bio and it all makes sense.
A random rebel sent me an EVEmail warning me that she would not go down as easily as all the other miners in highsec. But if anyone ganks her mining ship, she'll no doubt complain about being "unarmed".
After the past few weeks, I'm sure CCP is nostalgic for the days of The Mittani on the CSM. Could a James 315 / The Mittani Co-Chairmanship be the only way to restore the EVE community's confidence?
Agent Runeme Shilter reports that he received 24 copies of this exact same EVEmail from his Russian admirer. Now that's bot-aspirancy: Even the miner's tears were mass-produced!
People don't play EVE in your toilet, so don't go to the bathroom while in our asteroid belts.
This EVEmail was sent to me by the "sean" referred to in the recent MinerBumping post about TDD Dominaters. His message is a real head-scratcher. It appears as though he admits to account sharing, and then immeditely quotes the EULA provision against account sharing. Weird!
Here's a good illustration of why miners shouldn't ask me rhetorical questions. No, Vanguarder, I don't remember you.
Two different visions of highsec mining permits: In one vision, it's just two loads of ice. In the other vision, it's World War II. It's a good thing the anti-Order rebels weren't responsible for fighting the real World War II; Germany and Japan would be linking up in Antarctica by the time anyone fired a shot.
Miner Warpcat tugged at the New Order's heartstrings, declaring himself without a future, condemned to disappointment and fear. But the story had a happy ending. Warpcat sent me 10 million isk and got into compliance with the Code. Now his future is bright indeed!
