CODEdot Tournament Team Makes History

Unless you've been living under a rock--instead of hanging on every word written about the New Order--you've probably heard the news about the CODE. Alliance Tournament team. The first weekend of the tournament was dominated by discussion of the CODEdot team, and it looks like the same will be true of the second. CCP Gargant announced that CODEdot's next match, scheduled for this weekend, has been cancelled:

"CODE. did not show up for their scheduled match against Red vs. Blue nor did they make any attempt to inform the tournament organizers of their status. We have decided to interpret their actions as a sign of resignation from the tournament. As such they have been disqualified from Alliance Tournament XII and CODE. will not be able to enter future Alliance Tournaments."
Assuming the CODEdot team was planning to attend the match, it's a shame Circle-Of-Two won't get the chance to play. On the other hand, this might be the most exciting thing that's ever happened to them. But enough about Circle-Of-Two. This is about CODEdot.

In addition to banning CODEdot from the remainder of Alliance Tournament XII, CCP Gargant took an extraordinary step: He announced that CODEdot will not be allowed to enter future ones. CODEdot has been officially permabanned from the Alliance Tournament. This is the first time in EVE's history that any alliance has ever been banned from multiple tournaments for any reason, let alone permabanned.

Thus, CODEdot retires from its Alliance Tournament career without having lost a single ship. Even more impressive, CODEdot no longer has even the potential to lose a ship in the future. Or even a shield hitpoint!

Now, I know what you're thinking, skeptics and rebels of highsec. "Big deal. Anyone can forfeit a match and get permabanned from the Alliance Tournament. You better not say CODE always wins."

First of all, don't bother scrolling down to the bottom of this post: You already know it's tagged with the "Victory" tag. Second of all, are you sure any alliance can do what CODEdot did? How sure are you?

Though I'm best known as the Saviour of Highsec, I wear many hats. It just so happens that I am also the foremost historian of EVE. Today, I'm going to do something that I almost never do in a MinerBumping post. I am going to take off my Saviour of Highsec hat (actually a gleaming crown) and put on my EVE Historian hat (actually a tweed jacket with leather elbow patches). The reason I'm doing this is that I want you, the reader, to gain a full appreciation of just how historic CODEdot's Alliance Tournament permaban truly is.

To begin with, AT bans are rare, but they're not unprecedented. In Alliance Tournament IV, Hedonistic Imperative was disqualified from a match for rules violations. One of its team members then shot and destroyed a neutral player who was serving as the tournament cameraman. The team was banned from the remainder of the tournament. More famously, Outbreak. and Hydra Reloaded were banned from Alliance Tournament X. They had been caught cheating by CCP Screegs, head of security.

Note the contrast. Two teams, Outbreak. and Hydra Reloaded, were actually caught cheating, but that was still only enough to get them banned from a single tournament. Until now, no team has ever gotten even a double tournament ban, let alone a permaban.

You might think that CODEdot's forfeiting a match was a particularly severe crime. After all, it prevented another team from being able to play in its place. It didn't, though. Due to lack of interest, only 63 teams signed on for Alliance Tournament XII. The tourney wasn't full. In fact, CODEdot itself didn't make the original application deadline back in May, but CCP extended the deadline because the tournament wasn't even close to full.

But maybe there's something to the idea that forfeiting a match is something new, something that needed a stronger punishment. Let us examine this hypothesis and test it with facts.

There have been high-profile forfeits before. In Alliance Tournament VII, Laconian Syndicate announced it was forfeiting because its first match was to be against an alliance of "veteran players". Therefore, Laconian Syndicate tried to auction off its tourney slot on EVE-O. This caused an especially big stir because the alliance representative doing the auction was Larkonis Trassler, a member of the CSM. People got upset.

Did the Laconian Syndicate team get banned from future tournaments? No. In fact, CCP Navigator went out of his way in the thread to remind people to only place bids, not make complaints and objections, because the thread was in the Sell Order subforum. He actually facilitated the sale.

Another amusing forfeit occurred during Alliance Tournament VI, when Exalted. announced that it was forfeiting for this reason:
"Due to a crippling fear of the Minmatar Militia, Exalted. has to come to the unfortunate conclusion that we must withdraw from the Alliance Tournament. We are spineless hauler gankers and as such we have decided against risking a loss."
That's right, CODEdot wasn't even the first alliance to forfeit partly due to its love of ganking industrial ships! Exalted was not given any punishment for forfeiting.

Nevertheless, there's an important difference between those two forfeits and CODEdot's. Unlike those two alliances, which announced their forfeits on the eve of the contest, CODEdot's team simply failed to appear at the tournament. There was no warning, and no way for CCP to rustle up a replacement team. Perhaps this is why CODEdot's punishment was so far in excess of any yet seen. Have any other alliance teams committed CODEdot's offense--not showing up when called to the field?

Oh yeah.

Oh yyyyeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.

As a matter of fact, many teams have forfeited by failing to show up for the Alliance Tournament. Like, a lot. It has been happening literally since day one. After the first day of the very first Alliance Tournament, all the way back in 2005, CCP announced:
"Sadly a great number of teams had to forfeit their fight because they were engaged otherwise or could not assemble a team of fighters on such short notice."
A "great number of teams" forfeited. A great number forfeited on the first day. The reporter speculates that the teams were otherwise engaged. Maybe ganking carebears in highsec? I hope so.

The punishment, of course, was not a permaban for these teams. There was no punishment for forfeiting whatsoever. You might write all of this off to CCP having difficulty organizing the first tournament. But the forfeits continued in subsequent Alliance Tournaments. Complete statistics are impossible to come by, but Alliance Tournament II still has some of its original reporting online. We have much more detail about it than Alliance Tournament I. From the second day of Alliance Tournament II:
"The Five continued their success from the first day with a win against Serenus Letum; however several subsequent matches proved to be disappointing as the Caldari Gaming Commission announced a number of teams had forfeited their matches."
That's "several" forfeits. In one day. Sixteen matches were scheduled, and they only describe about 11 of them, so we can guess around 5 matches with a forfeiting team (or both teams!). From the report on day four:
"Some unique tactics including smart bombing fleet commanders podding their own players and mining lasers on Megathrons were the highlight of a day that was spoiled by a large number of forfeits. With the tournament moving into the Second Round, many alliances appeared to have given up both on qualifying and the Caldari Navy Raven on offer as compensation..."
A large number of forfeits on one day; it looks like another five of 'em. And day five? Even more:
"The final day of the group stages was one marred by the most forfeits in the competition, but those games that did go ahead provided some firsts for the Tournament."
That looks to be another 7 or so forfeits in a single day. Filling in the gaps, I managed to find an archived version of the day one report on a Finfleet board:
"The final match was the third forfeit of the day which whilst disappointing, allowed the tournament to finish on time."
You see? There's even a silver lining for all those forfeits, as it keeps the tourney schedule moving quickly. No permaban, or any punishment of any kind. But my favorite is the report from day three. After mentioning two other forfeits, we hear about Pure. alliance:
"After forfeiting their first two fights on Friday and Saturday, Pure attended their third against The Five with a lone Ishkur pilot as an apparent sporting gesture."
Not only was the Pure team not penalized for forfeiting, it was allowed to continue on in the tournament. Then it forfeited again. After two forfeits, CCP still allowed them to continue.

Detailed reports on subsequent Alliance Tournaments are harder to come by, since much of it was done on an Interstellar Correspondents website that is no longer online. The official records which are still available simply record wins and losses without noting which matches were forfeits. Nevertheless, bits and pieces of information about forfeits are still available, if you Google and Eve-Search around. Due to financial incentives and better organization, the number of forfeits declined over the years. But they continued. A few examples from about ten minutes of digging around:

In Alliance Tournament III, Serenus Letum forfeited. The team received no punishment whatsoever.

In Alliance Tournament V, SMASH Alliance forfeited. The team received no punishment whatsoever.

In Alliance Tournament IX, United Front Alliance forfeited. The team received no punishment whatsoever.

Then there was Alliance Tournament XII's CODE. alliance...


Yes, that wicked, wicked, naughty CODEdot. How could they forfeit a match? Who would dare do something like that, at an Alliance Tournament of all places?

Seriously, though, across the years, there have probably been around 50+ cases where a team simply didn't show up. Most of those were in the earlier tournaments, but certainly not all. In every single instance, the forfeiting team received absolutely zero punishment whatsoever from CCP. No team has ever been banned from participating in future tournaments due to a failure to appear for a tournament match.

Until CODEdot, that is. They got a tournament permaban--a punishment that even cheaters don't get.

Not that I'm passing judgment or anything. Whilst I am clad in my tweed jacket with leather elbow patches, I am a perfectly objective observer of events. I simply find the matter interesting, from a historical perspective.

You can't say CODEdot isn't good at making history.

      So, you were close - only off by a little more then 80%.

      If 1,760 words is just too much for you to read and come up with a well constructed and fun response, I highly suggest you turn the video game off for a second, pick up one of these weird things called a "book" - and spend some time doing this whole "reading" thing. I can make some suggestions for you!

      The books on this list will help introduce you to advanced adult topics such as "irony", "parody", "fun", as well as providing you with the type of education that you should have probably taken care of around the age of sixteen.

      After you give about twenty of these classics a read, please contract me in game and we can discuss adults topics - such as the meta-ethical position that ethical claims may not express factual propositions about robust or mind-independent features of the world, and that not all such propositions have any basis in fact.

  9. Hats off, Ladies and Gentlemen! If there was ever needed irrefutable evidence of the special place held by the New Order in the upper echelons at CCP - you have it here. All courtesy of our Historian and Archivist-in-Chief, James 315.

    The policy (such as it is) seems to be to attack the New Order - by not attacking the New Order. Novel. Instead, punitive measures are taken against groups and individuals who are associated with the Organisation. It is the strongest evidence yet that CCP does not intend to replace its current Mission Statement with The Code.

    Aghast at the wailing and gnashing of teeth of the carebear petition squad, they have come to the conclusion that 'We must do something - anything'.

    Unlike the measured, cautious process by which the New Order is revolutionising Highsec, CCP's approach to our emergent gameplay has thus been inappropriately savage, petty and knee-jerk. At best. Look no further than the example in the Blog, above.

    Of course, they did ban the name from future Tournaments, not the players. That might have been considered a step too far, even for CCP.

      Completely ignoring the fact that this "special place" was entirely creation of CODE - breaking tournament battle, avoiding to explain situation to CCP.

      "Unlike the measured, cautious process by which the New Order is revolutionising Highsec, CCP's approach to our emergent gameplay has thus been inappropriately savage, petty and knee-jerk."

      You've ruined the show - you've got what you deserved. Actually CCP was too kind for CODE, considering such limited response in actions. I would ban from future tournament events whole alliance, individuals, known alts and put wallets of all involved to amount of ISK, equivalent to hourly salary rate of CCP employes, multiplied by number of hourse they had to do chatter, filling the time you failed.

      Now remove yourself from my sight, you are disgrace to PvP community.

    3. Indeed Sasha, it is clear that CCP is infested with carebear sympathizers. I too have seen the evidence of religious persecution that we are now being subjected too on a regular basis, all because we dare to be righteous and live according to a few simple commandments contained within the code.

      CCP may wish to feed us to the lions, but we stand resolute. Nothing will stop us from converting the entirety of high-sec to our cause. Our crusade is a noble one. Some within CCP may have other ideas, but their ideas are folly as they are not informed by the code. "For their 'wisdom' descendeth not from above, but is instead earthly, unspiritual and demonic" (James 3:15, the King James Version).

      But I have faith my friend. Faith that we will live to see a day where the code is included within the TOS/EULA. Faith that we will effect lasting change in this game, and ultimately save it from destruction.

  15. One little thing for everyone to keep in mind - the New Order of Highsec is not an alliance.
    Remember how an Agent is defined on the Agents page of this very website?
    "Everyone in EVE who takes any action to support our cause is an Agent of the New Order."

    Members of various alliances often join us for ganks, and some of them faciliate their own enforcement operations, making them part of the New Order (but not CODE.).
    A tournament victory for any of those groups would be a tournament victory for the New Order. If someone is willing to look for the teams that qualify, please do.
    My interest in the AT is unfortunately not high enough to do any research on the topic.

      What you may have confused as "censoring the comments" was probably due to a well known fan of the New Order getting a little too excited and literally spamming the same comment a few hundred times this morning, and once the comments pass a specific page length - there is a button at the bottom that says "LOAD MORE" that you must click to, well, load more comments.

Just drop the role playing and admit it, you code guys screwed up. You ran away from your first match, you didn't bother telling CCP what was going on (which seems to have pissed off CCP), and then you get permabanned from the tournament. Then you guys call this a "win"?? And you people say that I am delusional.

      LOL.

      Delete
    3. Wow, Butthurt - that was a rather rational response and I thank you for it.

      Yes, open communication. As a diplomat for the New Order (and as the lead diplomatic contact of the CODE. Alliance itself) - any player, at any time is free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns or issues they wish to discuss, and I will be able to listen to them, answer their questions, address any concerns, and patiently work with them to make sure they are happy.

      As for "drop the role playing" - that's tricky. After all, once we log into EVE online we suddenly are playing the role of a immortal demi-god like being who transcends death and is able to take command of powerful spaceships in order to further any chosen agenda. It's almost like we are playing a game.

      Now, that being said - myself and most players I know are able to separate this role playing video game from real life - I often discuss issues about my real life while in game, including but not limited to my awesome and very cute cats, how I am feeling on any particular day, etc :) You get the idea.

      As for "running away" on our first match - this is simply your perception, and you, quite frankly, lack enough information to even form a opinion in the first place. You were not part of the alliance tournament in the first place. You were not part of RvB, and as far as anyone here can tell - you don't even play EVE in the first place (Prove me wrong - simply have your main contact me in game and then post here with your main with the 13 digit verification code provided).

      But I agree with you on one point - let's just stop the role play for a second - you are simply another random anonymous poster who takes part in nothing in game, had nothing to do with the AT in the first place, but has a *VERY SERIOUS AND STRONG OPINION* about issues they were never part of.

      For an example of this type of "super serious strong opinion cancer" I speak of - think of the mighty Goonswarm. Give me less then five mins, and I can find you at least ten players who have never engaged in a single PVP battle in their entire life, have never left high-sec, have no idea how nullsec sov works in the first place, and who have never been part of a player corp or a alliance of corps - but they HATE the goons! They cry GRRRR goons as loudly as they can, as all their friends do the same thing, and they have been told about all the awful things that the goons have done. They never bother to actually get to know a few goons, perhaps fleet with them and learn more about them - no, they are simply happy to GRRRR as loudly as they can.

      You, my friend, are one of these players (If you even are a EVE player, I for one have my doubts!) You simply GRRR CODE GRRR GOONS and spout your loud opinions about issues you are totally left out of, while ignoring the truth that is obvious to anyone of any intelligence. You are jealous, you feel left out, you don't have a home.

      There is a way to stop this madness. Unlike most communities in EVE online, we do not discriminate against anyone and keep our doors open to anyone who wants to get to know us. Perhaps drop by the "minerbumping" channel (the password is 315) sometime and join a fleet, or just enjoy some silly lighthearted conversation? Contact me in game, I will gladly provide you with free ships to use in some fun PVP. Don't want to hunt high-sec for lulz - that's fine, at least a few times a week we run roams in low sec and null-sec and we always have a great time. You will find the GRRRR and anger in your heart going away if you simply understand the source of it - you are sad as you feel left out.

      You don't have to be left out in the cold anymore, Mr. Miner. Just come home - your home has always been here, and the door is always open to you, and your brothers and sisters in the New Order will help you feel accepted and part of something larger then your own petty jealousy and rage.

    4. Well, since we are not role playing atm, I have to admit, logging off and then getting permabanned was some pretty good cannon fodder to troll with. Seriously, if you guys wanted to really troll the tournament for laughs, you could have all shown up in mining frigates/barges. Now that would be a troll, it would be an obvious troll, and it would have been funny as hell.

      Me being angry? Nope. I'm having as much fun here as you are. FWIW, I am a member of a nullsec pvp-oriented alliance, so I do fleet up for small gang roams through lowsec/nullsec, in addition to mining, ratting, exploration, industry, incursions, and the like.

  19. "Thus, CODEdot retires from its Alliance Tournament career without having lost a single ship."

    Or more accurately, CODEdot's AT career didn't even start. Must be terrible not even managing to fire one single shot. Even carebears manage to do that.

    1. Jamie, while I am grateful for your comment - you are misinformed and need to scroll back a couple of posts.

      Not only did we fire plenty of shots (Totally devastating the entire clockwork pinapple fleet in a single decisive battle with a net profit of ~40 billion ISK) - and we won't even get into the sillyness that is what other well known alliances did in order to not have to face a fleet of brave CODE. warriors - I will simply leave you to read all the rumors and speculation and come to your own decision.

      The truth is out there, and the truth points to the law of highsec - the New Order always wins. The CODE. Alliance always wins. Please consider purchasing a permit when operating in our space.

      Thanks for reading, and please let me know if I can answer any questions or address any concerns you may have!

    2. The problem is that your "fight" against clockwork orange was a freighter gank which was outside the tournament...and that does not count. In the tournament, you guys ran away.

    3. Mr. Miner, do you even realize how silly the term "does not count" actually comes across to us? We hear it literally all day, everyday, and I don't think the people who use this phrase every stop to consider it. Take for example, the average experience I see when I take a break from the real world to enjoy EVE online.

      "Shooting targets that cannot deal DPS in return does not count"
      "Shootiing miners does not count"
      "Shooting pods does not count"
      "Shooting people at a gate-camp does not count"
      "Bumping does not count"
      "Kills in high-sec outside of a war-dec do not count"
      "Kills vs. players younger then yourself do not count"
      "New Order kills do not count"

      The list goes on and on. The funny part is - all of these kills seem to "count" - in every single metric one can measure them by. Much like the clockwork pineapple (Clockwork orange is close, I am also a Brugress fan!) kill - all of these kills generate metrics such as a public record of the kill, killmails being generated, killboards being updated with the record of the kill, and more resources for the New Order to continue winning.

      Let's just tell the truth and drop the role play, ok? All of these things that "don't count" - that is just in your mind. Even when shown black and white evidence for how much it counts in any metric one can use to measure things by, they will NEVER "count" to you - as you will stick your fingers in your ears, close your eyes, and scream "NANANANNAN" as loud as you possibly can - anything to keep your fragile and misinformed view of the world around you intact - as that is a lot easier for you then to actually consider any other opinion that exists outside of your own small reality.

      Just tell us the truth. Stop being so jealous and angry that you have never been a part of anything bigger then yourself. We wait for you with open arms. Come home to us, Mr. Miner - the door is open and we will always leave the light on for you.

      Also, thanks to all the idiotic spamming and rudeness and general rage from the clueless anonymous carebears, I can confirm that the CODE. alliance has trained over 20 new gankers in the last 10 days, who were "on the fence" about the idea of supporting us, but after reading the type of comments that I deal with on a daily basis - came to their senses and decided to support the winners of the Alliance Tournment.

      All in all, it's been one of the best weeks for the New Order on record, donations are through the roof, membership is surging, and we are super excited for the future! Hell, I even would venture a guess that some well known CCP employees will be purchasing permits themselves very soon!

    5. Mr. Miner:

      I was not aware of this, but I highly doubt that anyone noticed in the first place. After all, you have a long standing history of making slightly rational posts and then when engaged in any form of adult conversation simply resorting to random links to adult material in order to prove what a truly elite internet troll you are in your own mind.

      It's sad, and I for one understand you - you are just feeling jealous and left out of everything. It does not have to be this way - in fact, once you come home to your brothers and sisters in the New Order you will find that many members may enjoy your form of humor - I for one have gotten more then a few giggles over your posts.

      The simple fact is, you are already a supporter of the New Order, and you just don't know it yet. We will be here waiting for you, and we promise we will never give up on you - we care that much. This is the way of the 315, and that way is love, tolerance, acceptance and forgiveness. No one, even you, is past redemption!

CODEdot has shown the whole of the EvE community what they truly are: Cowards and gankers who are worth nothing more than the Jita scammers. CCP enforce the code? LOL. They do that, the game will fold. What a bunch of kooks you guys are. You had a golden opportunity to show the world your "elite" pvp skills and you squandered that opportunity.

    3. Anon 3.48, I am from an indy corp background in EVE, but haven't found code toxic or arrogant. Over time I have got to know many of them in the game and love what the style of game play adds to the game. If you want to get on in EVE, you learn how to adapt your tactics to progress in the game and make many friends along the way.

      Delete
    4. Exactly. Eve is about adaptation. CODE. simply doesn't pose a threat to those willing to adapt. The big nullsec alliances don't particularly care about CODE. because it's not a threat, even to their highsec logistics. This isn't a "lol CODE. can't do anything", it's just that the people most willing to adapt aren't finding themselves getting farmed by CODE.

      And I mean hell it's simple even if you're going to stay in Highsec. At this point people should have figured out not to autopilot a freighter through Uedama and Aufay. And to add them to the avoidance lists (it's only a few extra jumps people D:) You don't have time to not AFK mine? Do some PI or industry. Those are pretty much just as AFK as AFK mining, with the bonus that you don't even need to be online to run the jobs. Don't have time to haul your goods to a hub? Let them stack up then hire a freighter to move it for you. It's pretty cheap and again, you don't have to do much legwork yourself. And you don't need to buy a billion ISK freighter to do it. That's got to save you some money on your bottom line.

      It wouldn't be so bad but 99% of what he says is pure lies and exaggeration plus he has the same pretentious attitude and falseness where he says he likes people and loves Eve but he has a serious contempt and hatred towards anyone who is not code.

      This is high level hatred too and as severe and obsessional as it can get. What you will see is him using a lot of alts and stirring trouble in forums and on Eve. He will also pursue individuals and harass them with those same alts.

      His role model is Ero 1, I am not going to say it is his him but both share the same traits and have severe personality disorders.

    5. Awww, Veers, you forgot to tell the truth.

      We offered you a leadership position in the New Order. All you had to do was get to know people, gain their respect, form fleets with members who had grown to know you and trust you to make the right call as an FC, enforce the CODE as you feel it should be enforced, further the cause of the New Order of High-Sec, and actually do something.

      I discussed this with you via voice. You were unwilling. You simply claimed that a few random forum posts you have made about how you feel about the New Order count just as much as the years of hard work and respect in our community as anyone else, and that you simply should be allowed to skip every step in this process that required you to do any actual work whatsoever. It's all there on soundcloud.

      Remember what I told you? BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE. If you expect more from the CODE. alliance, man up, step up, and start leading us. Gain our respect. Take part in things. We will wait for you, and rest assured - the light will always be left on for you when you come home.

    7. My dear friend DJ, I'm not quite sure if you know what the word "truth" means. Either Code was bought off for 200 billion isk to throw the match, or it wasn't. Either way, and in conformity with the New Order's longstanding full disclosure policies you owe it to your members, your ganker, your shareholders, your gank victims, and all your other assorted community members to disclose the truth of the matter. Did Code get a 200 billion isk bribe from RvB to throw the match?

      As far as leading Code, the truth of the matter is that it does not much appeal to me. Yes, I oppose all mining, yes I feel that mining should be removed from the game (I will soon be posting a "Plea to abolish all mining from Eve" on the Eve Forums - feel free to lend your voice in support). I do not believe that extorting miners for 10 million isk for a permit solves the fundamental problem with mining - that it is solitary, that it is done afk, that it creates misery, and that it leads to hyperinflation. The only humane solution, most of all for the miners themselves, is to remove it from the game. The rest of Code mostly consists of griefing and tear extraction, mainly to soothe the egos of your nullsec and wormhole members, who upon seeing any profitable activity in empire immediately start screaming RISK/REWARD, OMFG THEY MAKE MORE ISK THAN US, NEED IMMEDIATE NERF OR WE WILL ALL QUITE EVE (cf. the Eve Forums). Again, I desire no part in this.

      Rather, my lot is with the members of Red Pen List. Ever since I first learned of its existence one of my primary goals in this game has been to become a member thereof. Challenges were numerous, most seriously the fact that I do not mine, and therefore according to the Code am ineligible for membership. Undeterred, I made my case for membership, and to my everlasting delight, and despite neither mining nor losing a ship to Code, my application was accepted. I would suggest creating a "Red Pen List" section of the website, where the most feared enemies of Code, such as myself, are prominently displayed. A brief biography would also be appropriate, as well as a discussion of how membership on the list was achieved. I would certainly like to get to know my fellow Red Pen List members.

      Further, I learned that I will become a New Order Shareholder, without needing to expend funds. This is also a new achievement, one that I am quite proud of.

      To conclude, I do not desire to be part of Code, rather I value my independence, and will continue to stand up for my principles.

      Delete
  33. So CCP break with their own precedents and ban CODE from all future AT's. Are you feeling a little vulnerable James? After all they could just as easily permaban you next time. It seems that neither your eloquence or precedent are protections from CCP's actions.

  35. All CCP employees involved in this decision should be investigated by IA. They seem to have in-game grudges they are taking out on content creators. Investigate the E1 banning as well. Did Ripard Teg have anything to do with this behind the scenes like he did with his abuses of CSM position to protect Somer?

    1. That's the joy of the EVE community. A million random carebears having VERY SERIOUS opinions about events and issues they were never part of in the first place.

      I hope it never changes. The laughter is medically proven to be very good for my health :P

    I look forward to see how DJ will handle this. Hope his keyboard will survive ctrl+c/v onslaught.

    Can't say I blame CCP for this. In other instances of forfeits teams either informed CCP or were unable to show for a variety of reasons. CODE. instead failed to show, failed to communicate, and then went and bragged about it all over the internet. WTF did you think would happen? First rule of any online game if you want to keep playing: Don't mess with the devs, and don't make bad press.

  42. I prophecize that one day Erotica 1 will buy CCP and bring CODE compliancy to all of highsec, entrusting James 315 to handle implementation and spiritual leadership.

    *edit* by the gods! Captcha was 315!

  43. Code always wins... And bails from a relatively balanced opportunity to prove itself different from being a one-tricky pony.

    Thought of offering your services as a spin-doctor J315?

    1. Agree. The tears of laughter and joy we are all experiencing are some of the best times we have had all month!

      Here's to more tears of pure joy, the type that following the CODE will bring anyone on a daily basis.

      We have fun :)

    2. DJ Entropy, you hit the nail on the head when you said "We have fun :) "
      Shame many in the eve community don't realise Eve is an interactive MMO, that should be fun.

      Delete
    3. DJ is manic depressive with serious mental issues and no life outside eve and that is why he craves attention and replies to every post.

      Code is perfect place for him and good luck with your fun with a prententious mental case

      Delete
    4. Confirming that I take mental health issues posted by well respected EVE community members such as "Random Anonymous Blog poster too afraid to post with his main @ 9:34" very serious and that I will bring these very real life concerns to my health care professionals as soon as possible.

      Delete
    5. Of course DJ blows off any post which tells the truth but look on here guys and in any other Eve forum and you will see DJ trolling all of them. He has serious issues and is craving for attention and has no life so he feeds off Eve.

      My comparison would be to Erotica1, both are pure psychotics, both pretend to be nice but are the most hateful and abysmal people you will ever find on Eve.

      Only think to be thankful for is people like this are stuck in basements
      playing Eve and aren't involved in society.

    1. Would not count - they have to totally decimate multiple teams first, like we did :P

      But, I would still support it. SOLIDARITY. FOR A BETTER HIGH-SEC. :-)

    2. "Stand with CODE." ?!?!? LOL... CODE is a joke of EVE universe. Everybody is laughing at you, Big allies, small allies, corps..even miners are laughing at you :D Your venture killing contest is just cherry on the top of your sh*tty cake (because killing few days old newbies in rookie mining ships is really ULTRA-PRO-PVP). CODE is a bottom-feeder of EVE. Even miners are higher in respect than you !!! :D Go now..., hunt newbies, scare them, molest them.. Sadly, thats the only thing you can do... :D

  52. I'm curious what the story is here. RvB bribed NO to not show up? Either way clearly CCPs heavy handed response is another victory for the NO. Onward and forward!

  53. Wow, an epic butthurt post? Seriously? From us? I would have expected we would just have said "LOL we troll you". In response you enter into some sort of whiny, butthurt assertion we were wronged. WTF happened to us?
