Over Three Hundred Four Billion in Shares Sold

There's hope in highsec. Why is there hope in highsec? Because we put it there, that's why. Today, that hope comes in the form of a bunch of isk that people sent to the New Order treasury. Let's get to it:

Lord Kailethre purchased an additional 3,000 shares, sending us over the 299, 300, and 301 billion marks, and earning him a a Triple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.

Lovely Dumplings purchased an additional 400 shares, sending us over the 302 billion mark and earning her a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.

BeBopAReBop RhubarbPie purchased 1,998 shares, sending us over the 303 and 304 billion marks and earning him a Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.

Wait, back up. Did I mention that Lord Kailethre sent us over the 300 billion mark? Yes, I did. We have now sold over 300 billion isk worth of New Order shares! All of you gankers out there, next time you see a carebear in highsec, just give 'em a wink in local. They'll know why. (If not, blow them up.)

  1. The CODE and Highsec Ganking: The Triple Lie Edition

    Well folks, it's time to give James 315 a break and focus on the CODE itself. This is a whitepaper and may be several posts long. Let's begin, shall we?

    The CODE requires miners to purchase mining permits in order to mine in highsec. This is nothing more than extortion as all resources in game belong to the sovereignty holders. Since highsec belongs to the empires, the resources are free for all to collect as they wish. Furthermore, CODE claims sovereignty over all of highsec, which is a flat out lie since the empires hold sovereignty. It has come to light that the REAL reason why CODE charges for mining permits is because CCP said they had to or they will run afoul of CCP's EULA, TOS, and AUP. Granted, CCP allows scams as long as they are within the game mechanics, but apparently they take a dim view of griefers who drive away players from the game. That directly hurts CCP's revenue stream. If CODE causes enough players to leave the game, CCP will have to take action against CODE and the highsec gankers to preserve it's own business.

    And here is proof, proof, and more proof that CODE lies. They will do anything, say anything to revoke a mining permit so they can gank a miner, loot his wreck, and then salvage it. They also want you to treat gankers with respect. The suicide gankers are cowards. They attack people who won't or can't shoot back. However, if they get a worthy target, they run for the hills. This is what a suicide ganker looks like when their target shoots back. Further evidence of CODE's cowardice can be had from it's leader, James 315 himself. I have it on good authority that Mr. James only logs in about once a month and is only on for about 15 minutes, tops.

    1. "This is nothing more than extortion"

      And wouldn't exist unless a GM told the Saviour to start charging miners for permits. Really, you should be thanking CCP for this wonderful nugget of content creation.

    2. You know you can watchlist James 315 and see for yourself that he logs on pretty regularly?

      Or spend two seconds paying attention during a gank (I understand you're usually AFK so this part might be difficult) and you'll notice very few, if any gankers loot and salvage their kills.

    3. I've always got a timely reply from our Saviour, when I have had to bother him with my petty concerns and problems.

      Hallelujah!

  2. PART 2:
    From the CODE itself:

    - New Order territory is a safe space for suicide gankers. Miners are required to put aside their prejudices and treat gankers with respect.

    Based on what I just said, suicide gankers do not deserve respect. They are actually below the scammers. Now I will respect a good scammer. I will not respect a suicide ganker.

    - Upon being suicide ganked, a miner should congratulate the ganker on his success. A "good fight" or "gf" in local is customary.

    I will give a "good fight" or "good kill" congratulations to a worthy opponent. For a suicide ganker, I will tell him to bend over and take it like the little pillow biting bitch he is.

    - No excessive mining. Miners should not fall into a routine of mining all day. I want well-rounded people in my system, not ice-mining machines.

    Some people's in-game profession IS mining, refining, and industry. It's what they want to do. Who does James 315 think he is by telling people how to play the game? This thought comes to mind when I see that: "You can play the game any way you like, as long as it's how I say." Thought police anyone? Besides, I am not going to compare James 315 to Adolf Hitler, or Joseph Stalin, or even Saddam Hussien. He's more like Pol Pot, the leader of the Khmer Rouge Communist Part in Cambodia that was responsible for the Genocidal Killing Fields during the mid to late 1970's. That is who your leader is. He is leading the genocide of the highsec miner and you CODe monkey fools are too blind to see it.

    - Respect for elected officials. As Saviour of Highsec, I acted as proxy when electing myself Supreme Protector. Miners should respect the will exercised by the people when they made this choice.

    This goes to James' arrogance. He elected himself to supreme protector. The fact he wants the miners to respect the will of the people when they made this choice is laughable as best. When you appoint yourself to a position, there is no will of the people. People is a pural word, not singular. This further demonstrates James 315's delusion.

      Gee, I dunno. Maybe he's all like "Well, I can pewpew anyone for any reason I choose. Maybe I'll pewpew some miners because they mine too much? Yeah, I'll do that."

    3. I am seriously considering petitioning your account for harassment for some of those image links. What sort of subhuman are you? Are you aware a child could have seen those?

      Seriously, all joking aside, posting those links is worse than anything I've ever seen from any New Order person or scammer. You're a disgrace, and should be ashamed of yourself.

      Second that.

      Have yet to actually click one of his links. Used a URL decoder to see he was linking goatse a few posts ago, figured none of his links were worth clicking.

      If I was a rebel, I'd be mad- he makes them look bad. (not that the rebels need any help in that dept)

  3. PART 3:
    - The New Order of Highsec continues to recognize The Mittani as the legitimate Chairman of the CSM. This determination remains the rule in all New Order territories.

    So CODE follows Mittani. That explains so much about their delusions and behaviour. Now the question becomes, who listens to him any more? After his public screwup at a fanfest, he's now gone into journalism.

    - Prejudice toward minorities is not permitted. For the sake of clarity, this cannot apply to all groups claiming minority status, but only discrete and insular minorities, which are defined as suicide gankers, Goons, and others who oppose highsec mining.

    Once again, respect for the suicide gankers is demanded. Sorry, but respect is earned, not given. As for suicide gankers, I shit in their lunch box.

    - Keep local clean. Miners should be courteous in local and should refrain from the use of profanity.

    Actually, this applies to everyone. Not just miners.

    So there you have it, with examples from the code itself that shows exactly why the code should be violated at every chance one gets. Remember to shit on a new order ganker today.

      How have suicide gankers **not** earned respect? They're masters of HiSec PvP after all.

  4. James 315's first corp, which he was in for nearly 7 months:

    http://evewho.com/corp/Tactical+Enterprise+Group+LTD

    Hahahahahaha. Meanwhile 4/5 victims on here have been in the game for less than 7 months.
    What a hypocrite, and a terrible human being at that!
    Just kidding; I love you James. Still a hypocrite though.

    3. You should be aware of the lasting impression, bad CEO's has on the new players that come in to Eve, expecting to fly in the fleets they hear about, only to land up in a corp that offers mining and mission running exclusively - with the bulk going to the corp wallet, while offering very little in the way of fun activity that the headlines generate.

      Bad Ceo's make the choice to start a corporation, but with very little understanding of the full requirements a group of players need to have fun shooting other players on a regular basis requires.

      CCP has done everything it can to help players communicate well with others, the API offers insight to the skills already trained, the purchases of the player and time spent doing missions for different npc corporations. A good CEO/recruiter will provide advice and guidance based on this material that all good corps require before going forward.

      Three days of training is all that's required to fit a combat ready pvp ship. Generally for under 5M isk a ship can be fitted and loaded up with ammo ready to go.

      Add another five days and you've got T2 ability and damage projection already. Ten days, T2 fitted frigate, destroyer or a meta fitted cruiser boat. There is no reason a new player should find it difficult or stressful to train the skills needed for PvP combat in a ship that a good corp should have in volume.

      I can't wait to get back in to Eve and start the type of corporation that teaches and organises small groups of players how to properly use their time for their own fun and enjoyment. It's not about mining, or pve missions, both of which are extremely dull, it's about awareness and knowing what opportunities exist for those willing to take it.

  5. @Butthurt Miner

    James doesn't think any of these things. He is just kidding around. Please direct your comments towards his agents, whom are willing to act in a sub-human manner in order to impress him. They deserve the actual scorn here.

    James - much like the Goons - is just a joker. Stop taking him seriously and you'll start laughing with him. James does not think you should stop AFK mining and actively rat in nullsec when you need to make profits. James does not think hoarding ISK, in itself, is always a bad thing. James knows all this cannot be so black and white. The opinions he offers are purely for the sake of trolling.

    The truth is whether you are an elite PVPer or an industrial roleplayer, you need ISK, you need it consistently and you need a fair amount of it. A properly setup mining fleet in high-sec brings in the equivalent of $10 an hour; all while you're AFK for all but 5 minutes of that hour. No one intelligent would deny that this is the best way to make ISK when you need it; actively ratting in null or even working overtime IRL is simply a bigger waste of time (assuming you'd be turning those RL profits into PLEX).

    James knows this, the Goons know this, all the reasonable and intelligent players know this. Their denial of such is for humor; don't fool yourself into thinking they actually believe these things. The Mittani put it best: "There's nothing funnier than when someone walks into everyone else's sandbox and tells them they're playing with the sand all wrong".

    1. Seriously? Do you not think that I know that?

      Trolling Off

      I don't know who James 315 is, and I don't really care to know, but I bet in real life he's probably an average Joe like I am. Hell, in real life, he might be someone that I would enjoy sharing a drink with.

      I know he's joking around. I know that CODE is just an role playing plot mechanic for in game fun. People take this game way to seriously, and what he posts on this blog. Yeah, there is the social aspect of it, but it's still pretty fun to troll you, him, and everyone else on the blog here. I've said it before, I troll for a big laugh. Although I do know that my cannibal post was shocking to the whole lot of you. It was supposed to be. I just did a google image search on it and I saw those pictures come up. Real or not, they had shock value, which is what I wanted. As a troll, you have to keep changing your material or your audience will get bored with you and stop responding. I know that posing something that's inflamatory will get people to respond and make themselves look like even bigger fools than they are. Those of you that understand what I am doing, get to be in on the joke. You have to admit though, it's been pretty entertaining since I started posting here.

      That's enough out of me.

      Trolling On

    2. Not really. Your attempts at humor have mostly just been immature. I'd love for a decent mature "anti-code" resistance to happen. But you're not it.

      Delete
    3. Butthurt: Firstly, you are not entertaining at all. You massively underestimate the sophistication of the audience.

      Secondly, the code is about emergent game play, not merely "in game fun"- so your every post here supports the code. This is the conceit at the heart of the code and why it is so beautiful - because it literally cannot be opposed without being followed, whatever the in-game mechanics are.

      You try to troll something you don't understand, to an audience you don't understand & just troll yourself. It's an embarrassing car crash in slow motion. You just aren't bright or witty enough to make it entertaining.

      Delete
    4. I think when Butthurt is talking about "entertaining", he is talking about entertaining himself.

      And because he finds it "entertaining" then he assumes we must find it "entertaining". Just as the care bears think that because they don't find bumping and ganking "entertaining", then it can't be fun.

      I haven't clicked on his images yet. I heard he had Goatse there... was Tubgirl also there?
