Yes, This is the Rule

When we think of trade hubs in EVE, we think of systems like Jita, which exist solely for the purpose of buying and selling goods, and for killing people who buy and sell goods. Did you know it's also possible to mine in some trade hub systems? Take Hek, for instance. Not only is it a major traffic center, it's also a 0.5 security system. Mining there is extremely dangerous. If you want to mine in Hek, you should bring a fully-tanked, licensed mining vessel and a full escort.


...Or you can bring an untanked Retriever. Whatever.


After highsec miner Sylvia Ross had her illegal mining operation shut down, she was contacted by Agent Tisiphone Dira. Clearly, Sylvia assumed she was the victim of a random gank. She was about to be educated.


Although Sylvia herself lacked the courage to mine in lowsec, she accused an accomplished PvP'er of being a "coward". In truth, Tisiphone was anything but a bully. She ganked Sylvia for the benefit of new players.


Suddenly, Sylvia attempted to extort Tisiphone for 30 million isk. If she didn't get the money, she would condemn Tisiphone and "the whole EVE". Classic carebear--it's all about the money and never about the experience.


For a moment, Sylvia stopped screaming and began to contemplate the enormity of what she'd just learned about the Code. If highsec had rules, maybe she would need to quit EVE forever. Sylvia had a problem with authority.


The convo was terminated. A bit less than an hour later, Sylvia shot an EVEmail to Agent Tisiphone. She'd been reading the Code. Her message lays forth the tragedy of the highsec miner: If she couldn't mine in highsec, there was no reason to play EVE. So much for the sandbox.


Then Sylvia escalated her petition all the way to the Saviour of Highsec. Naturally, being a carebear, she started off with a lie, claiming her ship had been destroyed for "no reason". Sylvia must have assumed I wouldn't get the full story from my Agent, because the convo shows that Tisiphone was very clear about her reasons for ganking Sylvia. Lying to the Saviour is not a good idea, folks.

Sylvia demanded a refund of 40 million isk and for the "stupid rule", i.e. the Code, to be changed. If I failed to meet her demands, she would quit the game. I now had to choose between the New Halaima Code of Conduct and Sylvia Ross.

When such an ultimatum is presented, the Code always wins.


Sylvia Ross is a highsec villain, but she's a tragic villain. She truly believes there's nothing more to EVE than mining in highsec. She doesn't believe in tank modules or weapons; her only defense is to spew profanity and threaten to quit the game. These days, it's widely held that for some reason it's really, really important for EVE to have as many players as possible. An interesting notion. If you ask me, one carebear like Sylvia Ross is more than enough.

  3. Note how the Carebear's own estimate of her losses is inflated in careful steps; 30m, then 35m, to 40m.

    She uses this device to stoke her own rage, which is in danger of cooling. Also, Carebear greed.

    Well-handled Tisiphone Dira; briliiantly rendered, Supreme Protector!

    1. It appears that with each additional increment of time she adds in another 5 million ISK of illegal mining proceeds, which she believes she would have collected in the interim if the code enforcement had not occurred.

    2. Thanks Sasha

      Notice also how she feels the need to correct the spelling in my name, yet she lets her own many sins go uncorrected. She looks only at the speck of spacedust in my eye, while ignoring the entire asteroid in hers.

    3. Well, Tisiphone Dira, you are my new target. So now the question becomes what will CCP do to you now that you caused a loss of a subscription? If I was working for CCP, I would start by permabanning certain gankers to send a message to the community that causing subscription losses will not be tolerated. So you should be glad that I do not work for CCP. Look at what happened to Erotica 1 and his "bonus room."

      If you actually LOOKED at the player's information, they are just over a month old. One month and 4 days to be exact as of this writing. But oh look, the killmail is 4 days ago, so that makes them still a rookie. Hek is ALSO a rookie mission system (unless things have changed since I last checked). Perhaps I should contact the player in-game and tell them about their option of filing a petition. Who knows, this time the charges just might stick to your Teflon ass.

      There is only three things a new player can do to make ISK. Do you want to know what those things are? No? Well I will tell you anyways. They are missioning, mining, and hauling. Most new players will not go to lowsec because they are just cannon fodder for the faggots like the CFC, PL, and the multitude of pirates that roam those areas. It's one thing to have an experienced player roam the lawless areas of space. It's quite different to have a rookie do it.

      So, go ahead and keep ganking and griefing new players, dumbass. I'm sure that they will leave the game due to frustration. Eventually, the game will fold and we will all need to look for a new game. When that happens, you will have only yourselves to blame.

      This is another quality trollific post from your friends at Carebears United.

      We are many. We are strong. The code will fall. The code will fail. A code free highsec is worth fighting for. Saving highsec from the savior of highsec, one carebear at a time.

    6. Anonymous July 29, 2014 at 11:43 AM, you are full of shit.

      Mining Barge:
      Spaceship Command 1: Given
      Mining Frigate 3: About a day, if that.
      Industry 5: About 6 days.
      Astrogeology 3: About a day.

      Astrogeology:
      Mining 4: About a day.
      Science 4: About a day.

      t2 Strip Miners:
      Mining 5: About 6 days.

      t1 Mining Crystals:
      Reprocessing 4: About a day.
      Industry 1: A few minutes
      Mining 1: A few minutes
      Veldspar/Pyroxeres/Plagioclase/Scordite Ore Processing 3: About 2 days for all 4 skills.

      So just adding everything up, being *very* conservative about training time estimates, and taking into account that alot of this equipment has overlapping skill requirements, we can make a rough estimate of 18 days. So yeah, a new player can get into a mining barge, get T2 strip miners, and be able to use mining crystals, all inside of a month.

    7. You forgot about the fitting skills you need to actually make that fit work. It still takes more than a month.

      Also, you are the worst at trolling.

    8. What? Survey 3 and Mining Upgrades 1? A day at the most? It's still less than one month. Don't believe me? Go look it up yourself. All the skills needed to make that fit work can be trained in less than a month. Now go pound sand.

    2. So you are saying that an agent of the new order is doing something silly? That corp was formed on 2014.06.06, the loss occurred on 2014.07.11...that agent is known to shed wardecs, since the corp was formed before the loss, and there are no wars in the corps history, the war target hypothesis fails....how is this loss a win for the new order? It is a loss of a not-so-invincible Stabber flown by a new order agent, how is this loss a win?

    5. It's a win because a spaceship exploded.

    6. Hey Capt. Dumbass, you might think it a loss, but I think CCP might have a different view on it since it apparently resulted in a subscription loss. The victim was a rookie in a rookie missioning system.

      Delete
    7. Hey there, my friend, Capt. Dumbass. Just because a ship exploded, doesn't make it a win. It just means that a ship exploded. Now if that Sylvia Ross person follows through with his/her complaint, it's going to be a really sticky mess for James 315 which I definitely hope comes to pass.

    1. Just so that you know, griefing rookies is against the TOS and the game EULA. Since you are canceling your account, I would also file a complaint with CCP. There are rules against that sort of thing in EvE that are designed to protect new players who know nothing about the game.

      And if you do decide to continue playing, do not buy a mining permit. It's a badge of shame and you will get ganked by people like me.

      First you vehemently declare that (I'll paraphrase here), "players 1 month and 4 days old should not be ganked as they are rookie players & it's not fair to them & they should be left to play the game as they want in peace or they will leave the game & EvE will die & ganking is bad".

      Then in your figurative next breath you threaten same rookie player that if they actually play the game as they choose and purchase a New Order mining permit you'll gank them!!

  12. Dear Sylvia Ross and Butthurt Miner,

    James doesn't need your permission to post screen shots of your chats. He's been doing it since 2012, and you're hardly the first person to complain and make empty threats. The only time he's gotten love letters from CCP is when he posted GM correspondence. If you don't want all the world to see you acting like a petulant child, don't rage over losing some pixels.

    Hek is not a protected system. Here is the list:
    https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/Rookie_Systems
    Blowing up a spaceship in this game isn't griefing. People have been ganking miners for lulz in this game since 2003. If CCP didn't want people doing that, they wouldn't have the red setting for ships' safeties.

    Please do file a lawsuit so your real info becomes part of the public record, and people make fun of the real you, and not space miner Sylvia Ross.

    3. Actually, why don't you go and point out where I said anything about posting screenshots of communications. So where did I say anything about that? You can't find it? I'm not surprised because I didn't say anything about in-game communications.

      I told her to go file a petition. If he/she wishes to file a legal action against CCP and the minerbumping website, that is up to him/her. And yes, I do gank people if I see a mining permit in their bio. I tell them as much too. A mining permit in the bio is a badge of shame. Any toon that I catch with it is a dead toon.

      And speaking of which....here's a convo one one that I remember. The names have been changed to protect the innocent, and some honor:

      [ 2014.05.02 23:44:28 ] Me > When you pay the 10m isk, you help fund code's ganking activities.
