Officer Tear Drops
People tell the New Order to "try shooting something that can shoot back", but they forget about the miners' drones. Agent Krominal gloriously sacrificed his gank Catalyst, which had come under heavy assault from illegal miner Tri'Jaa Jarick's Mackinaw's tech II drones. Krominal's sacrifice paid off, as the Mackinaw was destroyed, never to threaten highsec again. CONCORD was also involved in this engagement.
The New Order won the battle. We're accustomed to winning battles, but unlike some other EVE entities, we don't make a habit of gloating about it. Agent Keraina Talie-Kuo moved swiftly to repair the rift between Krominal and Tri'Jaa by sending Tri'Jaa an informative olive branch:
Pirates and bullies don't send messages like these. Only the good guys do. That much should have been plain to Tri'Jaa; now nothing stood in the way of her becoming a member of civilized society.
And yet... As in the case of pods, which can be worth nothing or multiple billions, you never know what you're going to get with a carebear. (Note: The 100 million isk bounty on Tri'Jaa was added after the events I'm about to relate. This doesn't bode well for the carebear. But then again, neither does the title of this post.)
Tri'Jaa was down one Mackinaw for the day, but she still had an ample supply of exclamation marks from which to draw upon.
It's so weird that carebears say "you can't stop me" after we stop them from doing things. Keraina gently corrected the former Mackinaw owner. Now Tri'Jaa was at a crossroads. She could change her ways, or she could continue shedding tears.
Tri'Jaa was willing to replace some of her profanity with dashes. Judging by the number of dashes she continued to use, she was angrier about the loss of her Mackinaw than the average nullsec pilot is about losing an empire. The anti-Order petitions continue to flow; Tri'Jaa concluded by announcing she would get Keraina banned for harassment.
It's not for no reason that the New Order has lost zero Agents to harassment petitions (and every other kind of petition, for that matter). We know not to abuse the EVEmail system--or the English language.
After yet more fascinating carebear tears were shed, Tri'Jaa blocked Keraina and put the matter in CCP's capable hands.
Word of the tear drops got around, and controversial Jita businesswoman Erotica 1 took the opportunity to weigh in. She was personally offended by Tri'Jaa's real-life death wishes. Since Tri'Jaa had blocked only Keraina--and not the entire CODE. alliance--Erotica 1 assumed that Tri'Jaa intended for a line of communication to remain open. Perhaps by now Tri'Jaa had cooled off enough to see things more clearly. Erotica 1 closes billion-isk deals every day, so she was optimistic about being able to reach a settlement.
Astonishingly, Tri'Jaa still had tears left to give. So very many of them.
With more questionable use of the "block" feature, Tri'Jaa isolated herself further from the EVE community. In times like these, I find that carebears benefit from more interaction with the New Order, not less. Still, Tri'Jaa made her decision. Her mining vessels, should she continue to use them, remain at risk in highsec. If she loses another, will she yield more tears, or is she all tuckered out? Let's hope it never comes to that.

Butt buddies and poop chutes? This guy sounds like he's 12.ReplyDelete
So much rage and anger for losing a single ship. Whether hi sec mining attracts those with anger issues, or whether mining is such a frustrating experience that it causes a build up of murderous rage, a New Order agent must necessarily be something of a therapist, selflessly bearing such disgusting vitriol in the hope that the poor fellow may eventually see the error of his ways. perhaps the venting of rage and frustration is the first step for some in absorbing the enlightenment that the Code provides.ReplyDelete
I also greatly enjoyed "multiple emails sent to someone constitutes harrassment" and the tone deaf obliviousness of simultaneously using such vile language and threatening to report the entire exchange. If TriJaa is a space lawyer, it is only a matter of time before she is space-sued for space-malpractice and space-disbarred.
It would be sweet, sweet irony if our noble agent filed a petition against Tri'Jaa and got him a temp ban.ReplyDelete
No irony would be CCP receiving Tri'Jaa's petition, looking at the logs, then giving Tri'Jaa the temp ban.Delete
Rip-roaring belly-laughs all the way through; thanks!ReplyDelete
Meanwhile, real PvP on an epic scale takes place in systems New Order pilots only dream of. But hey, Krominal sacrificed a Catalyst. It's great to see the Order doing their part. Idiots.ReplyDelete
you guys should check Ikami, its full of afk hulks and maks with orkas orbiting stations! good job on harvest, good read as always! thanks for doing something that ccp dont want to, keep up!ReplyDelete
All the New Order ever does is win.ReplyDelete
Those are some weapons grade tears. All that profanity, homoerotic imagery plus a possible EULA violating real life death fantasy! That is some dang nice work. Bravo Tri'Jaa! Bravo!ReplyDelete
Not true, you punks wardecced this corp in Gamis. I remember talking to them, they mined out two ice belts in one night lol. It was a fun time when they were there in Gamis. Instead of mining less, they mined more. Also they won in terms of ships killed too.ReplyDelete
Perhaps that bounty will encourage the locals to enforce the Code. ;o)ReplyDelete
A quick search of Red Space 5's war history shows no recent or impending war with CODE, or anyone else.ReplyDelete
If your going to make shit up, try something not so easily refuted.
the corp was Handsome Millionaire PlayboysReplyDelete
and Celstial Horizon, whipped your guys ass in both the war and just mining. it was funny watching you loseReplyDelete
That was a seriously funny one. The bit about the exclamation marks made me pffffffLOL!ReplyDelete
The carebear tears in the comments are good too.
All around hilarious again, NEVER STOP JAMES!
If you deny the truth and keep repeating the lie, eventually, all the ones who know the truth will die and your new followers will only know the lie which by this time becomes doctrine. Its worked for organised religion and it will work for the code unless its destroyed.Delete
Ah yes, very profound and philosophical. I suppose you're patiently waiting for someone else to destroy the Code for you, yes?Delete
its quite simple harassment. I know you space ship pussy haters wouldn't be manly enough to do it in ones face.ReplyDelete
^Hypocritical statement. Funny you choose to remain Anonymous :-DDelete
If you were intelligent enough to realize that what the agent did is not in violation of the ToS, yet what the carebear did actually is and if you could tell the difference between real life vs. a video game, then perhaps you wouldn't resort to the childish and immature saying of, "bet you wouldn't do 'x' IRL."Delete
But, we do enjoy to point and laugh.
You think the 'victim' would repeat his words face to face IRL? I really hope not for him or he will find him self beaten to a pulp more than once, or fired, or shunned from his social circle.Delete
I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would gank your pretend mining ship right in your face. Same as I do when I headshot my friends while playing CoD and Halo. Come at me internet tough guy.Delete
Anon 3:10 - Oh you mean whoring on Concord KMs and killing rookie ships; yeah they sure sent CODE. running.ReplyDelete
Anon 3:11 - You mean the Corp that doesn't exist?
This is simply amazing. Truly tears of an officer drop.ReplyDelete
He meant Celestial Horizon. It looks like a decent nullsec corp. I wasn't aware CODE. has a fight with them. In fact, a quick perusal indicates very little conflict at all.ReplyDelete
You guys don't know about Celestial Horizon...?ReplyDelete
I do, I was in CLS in 2004. Is it still a carebear corp?ReplyDelete
When were these wars CODE supposedly lost to HMP and CH? I went back to Jan 2013 in CODE's war history, and didn't see a war against either of these...ReplyDelete
Thank you for the clarification Ekkentros Mercari! I assumed that's what he meant as well and checked. No records, nor history of a war between CODE. that I can find anyway.ReplyDelete
Wow browsing this shithole of a site and I find this gem.ReplyDelete
Hello, I am a member of HAMPB and CLS, if you don't know the connection from the previous argument, then you're stupid. Can you trust that I am an actual member of these corporations? Can you trust I fly for these two fine corporations? Yes, you can, but I will choose to remain anon for security. Ehem, CLS used to be an active SOV corp/alliance (they had other iterations along with CLS) but is now, as you would call, a "carebear" corp. However they work jointly to fight against their chosen enemies. HAMPB is PVP, CLS is Industry. They work in tandem, and often have alts in each. So while they are "carebear" to you, they work with a very professional group, and many of them ARE very professional PVPers.
Also, the war dec was pathetic. You faggots are lucky that Raven wasn't destroyed
Remain anon for "security" reasons, really? If you're around such professional PvPer's, why are you so afraid? It's cause you're a carebear apart of a carebear corp, accept it; or was it crybear? And you're about as professional as a 12 year old girl scout. Oh wait, no the girl scout is more professional than you.ReplyDelete
If you have to talk about how leet you are, you're not leet.
Interesting that the use of punctuation went by the wayside in the final spittle-flecked emails. I suspect that the entire daily ration was melted down and converted to exclamation points for use in the first emails.ReplyDelete
You want to argue my word? Fine, so be it. But please read what I said. I never called myself "leet", and I think I am far from being called a good PVPer, no that is not myself. However, those who I fly with are brilliant soldiers. Those who provide us with ships are industry gurus. The history of both HAMPB and CLS are extraordinary. To call them carebears is a wrongful term, as you use that term to describe all who take part in industry. I am not crying either, you misinterpret. I only see that James and his cult are damaging High Sec in the name of selfish greed, through murder and extortion, bullying (and not in such a way as to require a petition mind you), and hate. So while you choose not to take my word for it, be warned Capt Starfox, if your name here is the same as the EVE Toon in TNT, as you will dread the day we came knocking at your door.ReplyDelete
There we go! That was a lot better and I am much more inclined to believe that HAMPB and CLS are a respectable entity within Eve now. No need for calling people faggots and stupid; from the get-go anyway :)ReplyDelete
Well when CODE call people wife beaters and that they hit children, call people mentally inept to perceive the CODE, why should I give CODE the same verbal respect? Just because I called someone in Code a "Faggot", does that make me worse than CODE when they assume that people who don't think like them, obey their "laws", and pay them ISK are going to, over a computer game, physically harm their wives, husbands, or children? While not done so through harsh words, is that a lesser insult than "Faggot"? From the outright, CODE is of greater evil than I even for my transgression, as CODE from the get-go assumes that you have to harm people because you're so low to do so over a game. It's a more sophisticated insult. So I stand by my insult, as CODE is already one.ReplyDelete
"Well when CODE call people wife beaters and that they hit children, call people mentally inept to perceive the CODE, why should I give CODE the same verbal respect?"ReplyDelete
I've seen it in the CODE, I've seen Kalorned (aka Cuddles who makes up rules as he goes). Are you saying that nowhere James, or the CODE, Agents, whatever, have NEVER said that they are saving women and children from being beaten? That miners are wife beaters? If you say that hasn't been said you're a damned liar!ReplyDelete
James, the Saviour of Highsec, has already addressed this issue: http://www.minerbumping.com/2013/11/the-spark-of-creation.html.ReplyDelete
You really don't see the difference between saying that one is saving women and children from being beaten, and specifically insulting random people one has just met? You think those are exactly the same thing? LoL. sorry, no one here is going to be able to take you seriously now; I'd suggest reading and rereading the article I linked until you can understand distinctions finer than the side of a barn.
And there you go, you consider me unable to understand anything. Don't you see? Nobody hits their damn wife over EVE because they lost a mining ship. You're generalization of people is unbelievable. Not once have I ever seen CODE think different from James. You're blind fools. If you only showed up to that War Dec instead of shying away from a real challenge, you would have received the beating you so truly deserve from a corp of experienced pilots. But lo, you don't understand that what you do is a crime and is looked at with disgust throughout New Eden.... Open your eyes and see how blind you really areReplyDelete
I've been apart of CODE for over a year, not once have I seen someone apart of CODE start conversations with someone by abusing said someone. However, I have seen many players deemed as "carebears" start off conversations the exact opposite as an agent, or player of NO would, by being crude, vulgar, belligerent, etc. Furthermore, agents out of nowhere blatantly calling other players in this game wife-beaters is a lie and/or troll attempt. Players of NO are typically nice and polite in conversation and this is because we want to inspire people to play the game. Players of NO pride themselves on being nice and polite, moreso than carebears. For the sake of argument let's say this happened, each member of NO is their own person. They are allowed to enforce the Code as they see fit. Now that does not mean being rude to others in local, but is someone affiliated with NO was, that would be an extremely rare incident. Furthermore, if you found someone apart of NO acting in this way, then please let me know, pictures would help.ReplyDelete
Now in your case. Based off wrong information I'm assuming you got off your friends, or maybe Eve-O, you come here, insult us, the site, the message of said site, etc, then expect to be treated nicely, or differently? After you insulted the people here. Now, you're starting to look like a troll.
And finally, back to this Dec again.. HAMPB got some kills of gank-catalysts and rookie-ships, there was also one interceptor and a pod. Now, I don't know the full story behind this, but getting all excited about two kills is just sad (I'm not counting the gank-catalysts, nor rookie ships, but I'm sure you will).
"You're generalization of people is unbelievable."ReplyDelete
I'm not making any generalizations here. Speaking quite specifically and without generalization, about you: You are anonymously swearing and cursing at me (someone posting using a repeated pseudonym), on the internet. You seem to think this will convince me that carebears like yourself are calm and collected, and not prone to irrational actions. This is not correct. You are in fact only living up to the stereotype that has formed in many people's minds about highsec carebears. Sorry.
What makes the whole "wife beating" thing funny is that no one's twigged that James was paraphrasing a passage from the novel To Kill A Mockingbird. Hint: Atticus discussing his interactions with Bob Ewell.ReplyDelete
Ah man, Babatunde would have sniffed that one out, god rest his soul. That is indeed amusing.ReplyDelete
I miss Babatunde.ReplyDelete
