New Order Potpourri

A lot has been going on in the New Order over the past week, and it's hard to keep track of it all. This post is going to be done in a somewhat unusual manner, intended specifically to catch everyone up on random things. I'm just going to quickly rattle off a bunch of points of interest. Fresh off the tournament win this weekend, I present to you a bit of New Order Potpourri!

***

Agent Fawn Tailor is an accomplished ganker and accomplished journalist. Haven't been following Fawn's work at TheMittani.com? Here are some links to Fawn's most recent columns help get you up to speed:

Wrecks, Loot, and the Sandbox. A review of aggression-mechanic-fueled content creators like Agent Arden Elenduil.

Bounty Hunting - Crius Style. Remember rebellious carebear Ms Launa's giant bounties on the New Order, and how they disappeared overnight? Fawn explains what happened.

Go Gank, Young Newbie. A wonderful call for new EVE players to become gankers instead of petitioning them.

***

Important Notice Concerning Catalyst Reimbursements!

Thanks to the latest industry changes, the price of gank Catalysts is dropping significantly. Upon the recommendation of experts like Agent Sabriz Adoudel, the reimbursement rate will also be dropping. For now, the new rate for tech II Catalysts will be 10 million isk, down from 12 million.

***

Need more Sasha Nyemtsov in your life? Here's another dose: A recording of the "Become an Agent" page!


Every time Sasha produces one of these recordings, the people clamor for another. How about a reading of all 1,000+ MinerBumping posts? I kid, I kid.

***

Notice the new banner at the top of the page? An anonymous donor has created two new ones to be put into the rotation. You, too, can design a MinerBumping banner. The dimensions must be 900x189.

***

Agent Salah ad-Din has translated the Code into Russian! No longer will you be forced to rely on Google Translate when dealing with prickly Russian miners. See the following link:

The Code in Russian

Agent Stan vanderVille was inspired by this, and so he translated the Code into German, as well:

The Code in German

Those might be some good pages to bookmark.

***

Having witnessed the success of the still-ongoing August Venture Killing contest, Agent DJentropy Ovaert decided to sponsor his very own September Pod Killing Contest! Prizes will be given to the poppers of the ten most valuable pods. Another announcement will be made on the eve of September. (I'm also looking forward to announcing the results of the Venture contest at around the same time!) In the meantime, see DJentropy's EVE-O thread for the rules and prize list.

***

The Code is big these days. Now more than ever, it's vital that every man, woman, and child in highsec understands and follows the Code. Agent Rabe Raptor has put together his very own resource center for Code interpretation. If you need help understanding a provision of the Code or how our Agents tend to enforce it, Rabe's writings can be a big help.

The Law of Highsec

***

Whew! Our Agents are busy little bees. Remember when highsec was nothing more than a sprawling mass of worthless, content-free, silent systems? The New Order is turning on the lights.

  3. Dear Savior and Agents of Highsec,

    I have edited my forum post with the Russian translation to make the link a bit shorter:

    http://minerbumping.41656.x6.nabble.com/The-Code-in-Russian-td5955.html

    I also have written a new foreword, making this forum post a fully functional reference page. Enjoy!

    1. Wow, even though I've changed the name of the thread, the link provided in James' post is still redirected to the right place. I must admit, the Nabble platform is pretty smart.

  4. Great idea to have a Blog potpourri of shorter items, Saviour. Hope to see more of them in the future. Banner looks good, too. Gratz to the anonymous artist.

    1. Thanks! I think we set a new record - winning the entire damn thing before the first match even started. Just waiting on CCP to give us prizes and of course create the "Catalyst: New Order Edition" we all want so badly :P

  6. I'm sorry, but I am confirming my spinning copy-paste damage control failure. Forgive me, but I have brain damage and stretch marks on my face. I was in a tree full of gays and I was going up and down, at the same time. I didn't jump out. I was also constipated while doing a math problem so I grabbed a pencil and worked it out. My friend Wolf Soprano also has stretch marks on his face and his ass. I guess the pencil that I used to work him out was too big for him as well. So I may be a brain dead code diplomat, but I represent my alliance as they are all like me. Praise the CODE for when printed out, it works well at toilet paper. Glory to James 315 for his glowing ass gives us our daily dose of vitamin D.

    1. nice try butthurt miner, but please continue to post anonymously I think we all know who the real coward is.

    2. Yeah, we do know who the real coward is. It's you code bastards. Ran from a fight with RvB. Don't bother trying to deny it or spin it. We all know you guys ran with your tails between your legs to your logoff buttons. So much for your "elite" pvp prowess.

      CODE: The joke of highsec.

      FWIW, I didn't post that about DJ.

    1. Funny thing is I keep on enforcing the Code and the AT (that we were victorious in) hasn't had any effect on how I play the game either before, during or after.

      Delete
    2. haters gonna hate, and carebears going to cry.

      because posting anonymously on a blog is definitly going to stop code!

      Delete
    3. What's funny is that the only people crying right about now is CODE.

      Delete
    4. Haters hate, carebears cry and CODE. runs.
      Running from AT, running so far away.

  8. On average, how much does it cost to maintain a CODE. ganker alt? asked this in my other comment a few days ago, but didn't get an answer. Due to money and family problems, I'm probably going to have to maintain my account(s) mostly by plex. Also, is there anything against my main coming along to clean up after the main fleet?

    1. Gank catalysts can be reimbursed through the New Order's generous SRP, and free cats are often handed out in ops if needed (no double dipping please.) You can technically PLEX by living off loot drops and permit sales but you'd want a second account to be there quick enough (your scout indy lol.) Expect Fleet loot to be scooped for future ops. My suggestion is to join the Minerbumping channel in game, introduce yourself, and come have fun. I'm sure many of the guys can help you get ideas for funding accounts via PLEX. There's still time left to earn a prize in the venture contest as well. Shoot a few things in a fleet and consider having your gank alt in CODEdot.

    2. Yes joining minerbumping is the best way to join the biggest Loser-Alliance.
      CODE: C hicken O ut D eny E verything.
      And don't forget, the laugh is all on you!
      "Lock he is a code-monkey, they are those losers who tucked their tails between their legs and ran from the Alliance Tournament!"
      "Seriously? You mean that buch of cowardly wimps?"

    3. I did my first fleet with CODE this week Jamie - this is still my first month playing Eve. It was a lot of fun and learned a lot about various hisec and combat mechanics, as well as enjoying the company of experienced pilots.

      Can definitely recommend it to other rookies as a good way to meet other people who want more from the game than aspiring to multibox a borg fleet.

    4. Grats you found the most lame Corps/Alliance in whole EvE.
      The offical Cowards of EvE!

  9. So many awesome things going on these days! Amazing contests running that are open to the entire EVE community and allow very new players to take part, the New Order setting a new record and winning the entire AT before it even started - this time (like every time) is truly a wonderful time for the New Order.

    Looking forward to the end of the month to see the results of the Venture contest, and can't wait to start seeing the epic pod kill mails flooding my inbox for the September contest!

  10. Stan vanderVille ist entweder ein Viertklässler oder er hat den Code mit google translate übersetzt.
    Stan vanderVille is either a fourth grader or he just translated the code with google translate.

      Not HIS standarts but at least basic literacy. And it's not HIS job to translate YOUR propaganda, but YOURS.

    3. Nichts für ungut, aber die ist Übersetzung ist wirklich Scheiße!
      Frag doch mal Klausi, der sollte das besser können wenn er nicht zu beschäftigt damit ist sein eigenes Ego mit albernen Soundfiles zu streicheln.
      in Short better ask Klausi (Sasha) for a better translation.
      The code in english is shit already so this auto-translation multiply the feces factor.
      No wait, leave it as it is, it show how stupd code-monkeys are...

    4. Yes and judging by your posting style, you are clearly a language professor :) :)

    5. No just fluent in german, so i easily can say, that it is a shitty translation.

    6. Feel free to compare it with google translation. You will need only some seconds to see, that this was not auto-translated. Feel free, to make it better. At the end, this is a translation. Not a "new" code.

      Delete
    7. updated. Feel free to cry again.
      @Klausi: Mach mal n review. Aber sollte so passen...

  12. CODE performance on AT clearly shows that they suffer from a lack of creativity. What a missed oportunity to "create content".

    Also DJ Entropy is a liar. Just a few days ago he was telling tales of 200 bln ISK retraction bribe. Now James 315 is telling completely different story.

    1. Or maybe James315 is a liar? Or maybe both of them are liars?

    2. CODE. is ALWAYS lying.
      They forfeit cause of a freighter gank, or lack of skills, ar a ship ban, or they got 200 Bill from RvB, or they got 200 Bill from someone else.
      The one proofen fact:
      Code ran from the AT as fast as they could, in speed they surpassed the roadrunner and speedy gonzales!

      Delete
    3. And certainly you have proof of lies? Or are you all talk?

      Delete
    4. How sweet my little code-monkey!
      CODE. is all talk.
      :)
      It's not up to me to proof something, CODE. has to proof.
      Proof that code has been lying is all over the internets.
      xD

    5. Oh, and as a friendly reminder that CODE. has lost:
