I received word from Agent Danktor of a successful campaign against Orca-equipped mining fleets operating illegally in New Order territory. At first, it may seem like a standard report. A glorious victory to be sure--one that would have been considered miraculous before the expansion of New Order gank fleets. But we in the New Order have become almost accustomed to such martial miracles.
When you look more closely, you can see that this is no ordinary report.
Agent Danktor is a member of Dreddit, the founding corp of TEST Alliance Please Ignore. Friends and enemies alike often think of the CODE. alliance as being synonymous with the New Order. It's convenient to review killboards and stats that way. However, the New Order and its Code are not and have never been restricted to one in-game alliance. Our Agents hail from all over EVE. Danktor was inspired to lead a TEST fleet into battle against the bot-aspirants. But would these nullsec-dwellers take to it?
...Only like ducks to water.
Before Danktor could finish saying the word "Code", a fleet of Catalysts had already descended upon an illegal Orca and made a terrific slaughter of it.
The killmail tells the tale: Not a single member of CODEdot was involved in the kill. On this day, Dreddit said "enough is enough". They took revenge against those who had wronged highsec by ignoring the Code.
With an abundance of Catalysts at their disposal, our heroes fanned out and seized every bot-aspirant they could find.
Some Skiff pilots think themselves better than the other miners, due to their higher EHP. Even if they are better than the untanked Hulk pilots of highsec, they're not better than the Code. They, too, must submit or perish.
Speaking of Hulk pilots, one from the Carebear Technologies corp lost a billion isk Hulk in the Tash-Murkon region. She never saw it coming.
The Hulk pilot wasn't alone in being caught by surprise. Those who watch local and only dock up when CODEdot pilots arrive are doomed to repeat their mistake.
Orcas continued to die. During this brief campaign of less than a day, 15 billion isk was vaporized by the Dreddit Catalysts. Needless to say, there were no rebels in sight, and no effort was made to disrupt the Orca ganks. They didn't have a clue it was happening. It's difficult enough to keep up with CODEdot's Agents' activities, much less the rest of EVE's.
Yes, nullsec powers like TEST Alliance Please Ignore have their share of Agents, too. Those who minimize the importance of the New Order and deny its influence would like to ignore such Agents' existence. Carebears can ignore them--at their own peril.
