Highsec Nightmare, Part 1
Say, do you remember a fellow named TDD Dominaters?
TDD became the subject of a few MinerBumping posts when he tried and failed to interrupt ganks. Our Agents wardecced his corp, which got him in trouble with corp leadership. After TDD got kicked out of his corp, he made more threats against the New Order. In my closing remarks on that last MinerBumping post, I held out hope that he would purchase a mining permit and get Code-compliant.
Even the most rebellious miners in highsec will one day pledge their loyalty to the New Order. It's inevitable. Even TDD paid, and was willing to advertise it in his bio.
Nevertheless, Code-compliance isn't about what you pay or what you say--it's about whether you obey. Agent Dr Wiwwy, who had previously ganked TDD for non-compliance, was astonished when TDD made a kill right against him available to all.
After careful consideration, Dr Wiwwy found no alternative. He had to revoke TDD's mining permit. It's very, very, very rare, but it does happen.
This was the point where TDD should've come clean, apologized, and begged forgiveness from any Agent who would listen. Instead, he played cute. If you've seen TDD's profile picture, "cute" isn't a role he was born to play.
Considering how often carebears lie, they're surprisingly bad at it. Despite there being no way to cover up the fact that a kill right has been made available, TDD tried to pretend it didn't happen. Then he immediately justified the very action he claimed not to take, by saying Dr Wiwwy deserved it! That's like a miner saying, "I didn't beat my wife, but she shouldn't have gotten on my nerves."
My name is basically synonymous with truth in highsec. Invoke my name to a rebel carebear, and he will instinctively flinch. Like an endgame boss revealing his true form, TDD dropped his pretense of being an innocent miner. He was a monster, hideous to look upon.
TDD lost control of his keyboard and sputtered about in a manner that almost makes liberty sound coherent by comparison. TDD was a rebel miner now, through and through. It's disturbing to think that someone with a permit in their bio would be capable of such a thing. And yet, I'm sorry to say, the horrors were only just beginning...
Next time: The most shocking MinerBumping episode yet!

I'm on the edge of my seat! Most shocking ever?! Wow, I can't wait to read this. I hope the story has a happy ending though.ReplyDelete
No I don't see you getting ran over by a truck being a part of this story but we can only hope.Delete
Is that you sohkar?Delete
This hatred isn't healthy
So the permit was 2013-10-05 for a year. Killrights are 30 days, and the 'revoke' evemail was sent on 2013-12-14, and the killright had 3 days left on it meaning he was ganked 27 days previous, i.e. around 2013-11-17.ReplyDelete
So he was ganked despite having a permit? Which means presumably he broke the permit conditions at that point, or Dr Wiwwy just got trigger happy despite the permit?
The premise given is he was ganked for non-compliance, so that means TDD had broken the permit conditions.Delete

Oops. I just read more carefully. My mistake.Delete
It still seems a bit odd that the revokation evemail went out as a result of the killrights going public, rather than whatever that non-compliance was. I suppose it could've happened both times.
True and entirely possible.Delete
Chris I think what you're seeing here is mercy. The original noncompliance was no doubt in some way careless, rather than deliberate, and Dr Wiwwy elected to correct the behaviour with an educational gank rather than jump right to revocation and exile. A kill right activation though is an obviously deliberate act, and revocation was the right course of action. It's like the difference between carelessly straying slightly over the speed limit, and intentionally sideswiping a minivan full of special education children. I hope that clears things up.Delete
It's funny how miners don't read what's in their own bios after buying a permit.ReplyDelete
"I follow the New Halaima Code of Conduct." If they're not following the Code, their permit is invalid. Simple as that.
And Minerbumping is officially out of material.ReplyDelete
As long as there shall be non-compliance, there shall be material.Delete
as always james your really fucked up in the head but you know that so please go and see a real dc in rl to help youReplyDelete
THE ONE AND ONLY.....
I apologize for not having a name like all of the other agents here but I am mostly a quiet one and keep to myself as I go about enforcing The Code; I don't even charge a fee for the honor, nay, the humble privilege of saving miners from themselves. The mindless heathens have forced me to respond finally as their inability to comprehend the dangers of mining have obviously gotten the best of them.ReplyDelete
James 315 is probably the single most compassionate entity in all of eve. He goes out of his way to limit every single capsuleer's exposure to contaminated space dust generated by both ore and ice mining. Primarily by bot-aspirants who go around polluting the very space we travel in people!
Can you not see the humanitarian and herculean efforts that James 315 and my fellow agents go to in order to make your EvE experience a long lasting and positive one? Have you been exposed to so much ore-dust contaminated space dust that you are incapable of self-preservation anymore?
Well regardless, James 315 and others like myself are here to help save you from yourself even if you yourself cannot see the light through your own vapid ore-dust contaminated windows. Do not despair as you see the pod-capsule fluid leaving and the cold embrace of vacuum touches your skin; as you will be born anew in a fresh and vibrant clone who has yet to be touched and contaminated by the ore-dust that space miners leave in their wake.
Alas, I fear as though should I spend the entirety of each and every single day protecting and saving miners from overexposure; there are simply too many capuleers that choose to continue the lowest and crudest of professions. That there simply is not enough saviors to go around. That too many of my fellow capsuleers will succumb and simply go mad with ore-dust contamination.
Times like these that try our souls can only be sated by the knowledge of the fact, nay, the solar blinding truth; that our cause is just, that even though we can never save everyone that each person we do save may live on for yet another day. Each small victory is justification in and of itself that eventually all will be saved.
In James 315 we trust,
Forever and ever,
Amen! Preach it brother!Delete
On a side note.... not justifying though...ReplyDelete
Isn't activating a kill right something we want? Supporting activity in highsec?
Its not right that he did it against a knight/agent though.
He should repent by sending a full remorse mail to james and a Concord baptism.
Before he is allowed to repurchase a mining permit.
As all carebears should do!
Praise james the Light of highsec
Just a bit of clarity, he didn't activate a killright. He made the killright available to all. If he activated it, causing the perp to go flashy and shootable in his presence, then that is an affirmative action by someone who means to settle a grievance themselves, in person. Making a killright available to all allows anyone else to activate the kr and blast the target. Making a kr available to all is the most AFK thing you can do.

That being said, interfering with agents in any way would be reason enough to revoke a permit. Permit holders should be helping agents by providing intel, not by trying to get them blown up.
How stupid a miner should be to even speak with those 'agents' who sell some 'code'? this is clearly bullying.
Getting blown up (and podded) is part of anything that involves undocking in eve, just calculate risk of being blown up in your ore table and save your middle finger for scammers/gankers/bullies/scum that try to insult/scam/harass you.
Eve is not game about collecting stuff (like almost all fantasy based mmo's) but about risk management. Buying some code or whatever they call it won't make eve a game about collecting stuff, but only only feed some fat 40+ year old douches who wanted to be bad guys in real life, but couldn't for some reason.
you sound upset sir, would you like to talk about it?Delete
Unknown, would you like to reread and then restate your position. It sounds an awful lot like butthurt.Delete
> some fat 40+ year old douchesDelete
Why they always gotta be fat and 40+?
I'm not fat, 32 and a I'm a douche.
If you could just take a step back... take a deep breath...Delete
Who was saying that on the TS recording? I lol'd every single time.
Your group is perfectly within the rights of the Eve Online EULA!!! In fact, this is what CCP has to say about it,ReplyDelete
"Due to the sandbox nature of EVE as a game designed around player-created conflict, acts of piracy, warfare, nonconsensual pvp, ganking, scamming and theft are not seen as exploits by the developers of EVE Online, as the opportunity to do so is built into the game mechanics."
