Previously, on MinerBumping... Alfonse Layate sent EVEmails to CODE.'s gank victims, soliciting funds for a lowsec crusade against the New Order. In reality, Alfonse was an Agent of the New Order--conducting a sting operation designed to catch highsec rebels.
Despite having been ganked by the New Order in the past, the EVEmail recipients had the same obligations under the Code that everyone else has. They should have reported Alfonse to the proper authorities. They should have instructed Alfonse to cease his rebellion and embrace the Code. They didn't.
Alfonse caught the rebellious carebears in the act. One such carebear, Leftius Maximus, claimed to be in a corp that "only does PvP". He got himself on the CODE. killboard by "engaging in PvP" on autopilot in an anti-tanked industrial full of blueprints.
As is always the case with money-grubbing bot-aspirants, most were unwilling to part with isk, even for a cause they believed in. However, some of the offenders held enough of a grudge against the Order to pry a few isk loose from their own grubby hands. Money started trickling in.
A miner named TrueVolley secretly donated a billion isk. His hatred burned hot. Who was this miner?
In a shocking twist, TrueVolley was actually a permit-holder! Despite his public declaration of loyalty, he had illegal feelings about the New Order. Alfonse's sting operation was bearing fruit. What an intelligence coup!
TrueVolley's billion isk was promptly put to good use; a thousand New Order shares were purchased in his name. The purchase put him on the month's "Top Supporters" list. This, in turn, drew the attention of Agent DJentropy Ovaert:
TrueVolley and his army of alts are suspected of botting, and they frequently engage in AFK mining in violation of the Code. Their crimes get them ganked over and over. However, these days, even rebels know the only way to safely mine is to buy a permit. So TrueVolley and his alts keep buying permits.
Skeptics and critics will tell you that the New Order only cares about extorting money, and that we'll let botters run rampant as long as they pay their mining fee. Not so. As TrueVolley learned, our Agents uphold the Code and punish the botters, even if they try to bribe us with insincere permit purchases.
Having attempted to engage in a conspiracy against the Order, the miner/botter only managed to lose a billion isk and get his permits revoked once again. I'd say that qualifies as a victory for the New Order, wouldn't you? Alfonse concluded his report about the sting operation as follows:
The CIA is known for engraving at its headquarters the words, "And Ye Shall Know the Truth and the Truth Shall Make You Free". Alfonse sought the truth. No matter how many layers of lies the carebears tried to hide it underneath, Alfonse found truth. There are many intelligence operatives working tirelessly for the New Order. They will continue to find the truth, and they will continue to set the carebears free: Free to follow every single word of the Code.
Maybe we should make a KOS list for the worst Code violators, like a public top 10 with double reimbursement. Provi has had a list for years (which I have been on for a long time for some odd reason), so CCP must endorse this idea.ReplyDelete
Well they might as well take you off of it.Delete
You know, since you tortured players.
I didn't realise Slippy Chick was TrueVolley too. That brings his donation to 1.2 billion.ReplyDelete
What a lot of ISK to waste fighting such a pointless battle against such a superior force.
He's out again with his bot-army today, letting him settle in before dropping in tonight to say hello :PDelete
As a simple avid reader of this blog I would like to wish CODE the best of luck with their match tomorrow =)ReplyDelete
Hi Anonymous 8:11 PM,Delete
Glad you enjoy the Blog. Why not take the next step and become an Agent? It's easy, and fun!
As for the AT match, I totally join you in wishing our Team success.
Agent Alfonse Layate, I salute your skill in uncovering the wickedness of these rebels. May you prosper in all you do!
Agent Alfonse Layate, wonderful job with this operation. I am very impressed :)Delete
I'm no fan of CODE, but I've to admit: This is fu* hilarious *lol*ReplyDelete
this blog is my viagraReplyDelete
This is basically the most raw form of a Code victory there is.ReplyDelete
Been following this blog for about a month now (give or take a week), and I've decided that I'm joining the CODE. as soon as I can get my router replaced and get back in game. anyone have advice about creating a gank alt (I'd rather not use my current character)? Also, same account or create a new one? mostly, I plan to support my account by plex onlyReplyDelete
It's great to hear you're interested in joining the New Order!Delete
There's a collection of ganking alt related articles over at http://www.minerbumping.com/p/blog-page.html
I would recommend a second account, since in that scenario you can train a scout on your main account, which is always handy.
Once you can fit eight guns and some magstabs, contact John E Normus, he'll get you sorted out.
Looking forward to seeing you on the fields of battle!
Good to see you joining the good guys just like I did so long ago now. Without that chance encounter with James 315, I might not have gone down the same path as I did, which would have been a real shame.Delete
May your future as a hero of highsec be long and fruitful, and may you slay lots of bad guys!
Yeah, real shame.Delete
Who knows? You may have still been playing the game to this day!
I recommend dual character training - one months gets you a very decent skill base, two months gets you a near-perfect Cata pilot, three months gives you all V in relevant skills.Delete
It's what I did for my ganking alt, and didn't regret it.

Feel free to join the in game channel "minerbumping" (password is 315) and hang out and get to know us. Make sure, of course, to look over the channel rules - it's totally open to the public and all are welcome as long as they do not violate the channel rules!
Don't bother joining minerbumping channel. I myself have been banned 6+ times!Delete
And no I didn't violate any channel rules :)
You propably lacked a channel permit.
I'm the one who posted earlier. the name of my main is Jamie Risalo, if you want to take a look. Also, what is the general expenditure for a code pilot, because I'm going to be relying on my main to fund Catalysts and stuff for my CODE. alt and trying to plex 2 accountsDelete
When you get an email, always read it. Completely.ReplyDelete
Hey, CODE. What ahppened to your fight today? Oh wait you chickened out after RvB banned both Catalysts and Talwars. No big suprise.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on excellent performance on Alliance Tournament!ReplyDelete
CODE always wins!!!ReplyDelete
except for the Alliance TournamentDelete
Damn too late!Delete
You can't be serious...
CODE. shot themself into the head! (not the foot!)
Did you guys have any ideas of the repercussions of that?
Another proof: the CODE. doesn't shoot at things, that know how to fight back.
The New Order has never lost a tournament of elite pvp. It's possible that serious violations of the Code were reported. In such an event, it's more important to enforce the Code than play a tournament.ReplyDelete
So you say CODE. Alliance dosn't have the manpower to enforce the code, if mere 12 ppl are in combat? impressive! Please more dumb and sad (funny) excuses!
CODE also never has wo a fight even in dummy pvp since running away dosn't count as victory.
All the code tears that are flowing right now! Sweeeeet!ReplyDelete
wooooaa catastrophic propanga failure...ReplyDelete
Sasha for the rescue! Talk yourself out of THAT
Looks like the CODE signed up for RvB's bonus room.ReplyDelete
Hundreds of billions made in first match, trillions in 2nd with updated odds. Boy, if that's failure, keep it coming. Crying all the way to the bank.ReplyDelete
Code stupidity without frontiers...ReplyDelete
You just admitted, that code is manipulating all the bets.
The Saviour sees all, including the future of every match in the tourny.Delete
Code is everywhere huh does that include the alliance tournamwnt? So what really happen couldn't get 12 people that could fly things other than catalysts?ReplyDelete
