Highsec Miner Grab Bag #52
If my goal is to stop people from enjoying the game, I'm not doing a very good job of it. The greater the impact I have on highsec, the more fun people have. And nothing says fun like another edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
Rebel Rack Kashuken admitted that he supports bots more than he does the New Order. His only regret was that the New Order was too cowardly to engage him in a wardec...
...Until, that is, his corp started receiving wardecs. Since then, he has repeatedly been forced out of his corps. Be careful what you wish for, rebel miners!
One thing Agents learn very early on is that miners don't always say what they mean. If there's any doubt, always, always, clarify.
After further clarification, it seemed that Arn Zul enjoyed mining without a license. Why else would he mine, when he "did not need to mine here"? I'm amazed by how often miners don't need to mine, when they're getting bumped or ganked.
As I said, always clarify. In the end, though, every miner will buy one. It just makes sense. The "N.O." doesn't take "no" for an answer!
I've been compared to many things--most of them involving the Third Reich in some capacity--so I'm always pleased by a new comparison. Bird Nest 2013 isn't something you hear about every day.
Don't pity captn g just because he can't string a coherent sentence together. Pity him because he doesn't accept the Code. A miner capable of writing a sentence can be just as badly confused. For example:
Of course, we know podding isn't butchery. It's a clean, efficient way of depriving a bot-aspirant of his ill-gained isk. The way a carebear tortures logic to avoid the commonsense conclusion that he needs to buy a permit--now that's butchery.
Why do miners reference my mother so often? Perhaps she should be given an official title, as I have. "Grandmother of the New Order", maybe?
Two tear-mails with an oral theme may be too few to form any conclusions about the rebels...
...But as time goes by, a pattern is established. Where's a Space Therapist when you need one?
Always nice to end a Grab Bag on a positive note. Novia Ephrael strayed from the Code and was brought back to the fold by some compassionate gankers. We are the New Order. We're here to win a better future for highsec. Make no mistake--we are winning.
