Over Four Hundred Sixty-One Billion in Shares Sold

It's that time again--time for the good people of highsec to shower the New Order with money!


People give money to the New Order for all sorts of reasons. Some, like Miss Shagarama, do it to turn their lives around. Others do it simply because it's fun (try it!). But for most, the purchase of New Order shares represents the most efficient vehicle for assisting our Agents in their quest to save highsec.

The Conference Elite gained 1,000 additional shares by way of its CEO, loyalanon, who is currently the #1 PvP'er in all EVE according to zKillboard. Thanks to the new purchase, we've passed the 455 billion isk mark, and TCE earned yet another Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ by proxy.

Miss Shagarama, the author of the inspiring EVEmail you just read, bought 200 shares. This sent us over the 456 billion isk mark and redeemed her soul to a degree. Miss Shagarama earned a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. She's come a long way!

Mistrum Ridcully bought 1,882 shares--an interesting number. It also happened to be barely enough shares to send us over the 457 and 458 billion isk marks and earn Mistrum a Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.

Zepher Helen Hawat, formerly known as Colonel Falkenberg, bought 1,000 additional shares, sending us over the 459 billion isk mark and earning Zepher a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. A New Order shareholder by another name is just as sweet.


Bing Bangboom received a windfall and wanted to share. He bought 2,000 additional shares, sending us over the 460 and 461 billion isk marks and added another Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ to add to his collection. To read more about his adventures and the circumstances of his recent acquisitions, you can head over to the MinerBumping Forum and check out his new thread.

Good news all around. And yet, as Agents of the New Order who care deeply about the fate of highsec, we must always be on our guard. Don't get complacent.

    6. I want to relax
      after tiresome day at work
      and not write haikus

    7. That was 5-8-5, not 5-7-5.

      If you want to veg,
      remove yourself from the game
      and go take a nap

      Shouldn't have to say:
      "Gaming is for the awake
      Not for the checked-out!"

    8. af-ter tire-some day at work (I think, that'd make it 7)

      I need no advice
      From a high sec griefer
      How to play a game

      You didn't have to say that, I'm not even logged in. nor do I read minerbumping.com while playing EVE. I think that'd be counted as bot-aspirancy by CODE.

    9. Ah, it's a pronunciation issue. I pronounce it "tie-err-some". I guess if you pronounce it "tair-some", it works.

      Also, now you did 5-6-5. "From a high sec grie-fer".

      How did you not know?

    10. English is not my first language, so I may count syllables wrong (along with other mistakes). Counting those based on how the word is pronounced is somewhat difficult to me.

      Anyway, after miscalculating 'failure' (I counted it as fai-lu-re, and not noting that there's the base word 'fail' that has only one syllable), I've doubled checked difficult words from http://www.howmanysyllables.com/ . Without it, I would've had ti-re-some, and grie-fer. I have no idea how the site gives 'griefer' 3 syllables. http://www.wordcalc.com/ gives 'griefer' 2 syllables, but it also gives the word 'idea' only 1 syllable, while howmanysyllables.com gives the correct 3. Oh well.

    11. Falcon disagrees
      Ero was banned for Teamspeak
      EVERYTHING's in-game

    12. If that is really true
      then afk are playing the game
      and James' words untrue

    13. 'Twas a stupid choice
      but that's the world we live in

    14. Don't try to hide it
      The CODE is now obsolete
      It's members but sheep

      Delete
    15. Why say "obsolete"?
      In what way has highsec changed
      to justify that?

    17. Here's my conclusion:
      CODE claims afk are not playing
      you confirmed they are

    18. I'm gonna skip ahead a couple responses.

      Anonymous says:
      "Ha, I knew it! A facetious comment one supporter of Code made means the whole movement is intellectually bankrupt! That's why I'll NEVER pay!"

      There, now we can skip that whole boring conversation.

      Delete
    19. Oh, you didn't agree with yourself? ;D

      The reason why I'll won't pay the permit is because I don't want to have it in my bio. I don't agree with CODE's methods either.

      Delete
    20. I was being facetious, poking fun at the mess CCP's creating with their creative interpretation of what their jurisdiction and responsibilities are. It is not an interpretation I agree with, since it leads to such absurdities as "everything is in-game and there's no such thing as afk". That really shouldn't have had to be spelled out, but there you go.

      And don't worry, you'll end up with a permit in your bio. It may take a while (it takes some carebears years), but eventually you'll learn: you can save your list of NPC damage types in a note or in a text file, thus freeing up the necessary space in your bio.

  2. If bumping is effectively a warp scram, then this ISK windfall is effectively a down payment on future tears

  3. A worthy cause, just and true. Saving the souls of carebears from bot-aspirancy and saving EVE from becoming Carebearistan. There is not a more worthy cause to donate to.

    1. My vision for highsec:

      A place where nobody can do anything without getting ganked regardless of permit status. There. I said it.

  9. I noted somewhere on a previous post that, as an inactive player with no plans to re-sub, I was waiting for EVE to offer one of those expansion-related "reactivate X days for free!" offers so that I could cash out my characters assets and hand them over before biomassing. The EVE offer arrived last week; I happily accepted and logged on just long enough to liquidate. I confess that I melted down a clutch of T2 hulls and equipment because it was the easiest way to consolidate everything for a sale. Please carry on with the amusing blogging.

  10. We thank the honorable Holland Zellder for providing an excellent example of why the CODE is the one true pathway to Salvation ! Our dear friend had been lured into the dark pathway of apathy, his senses dulled and his intellect inactive. Such a large, unprotected ship for such a small and valuable cargo. The CODE works because it causes the pilot to stop and think!

    We thank the most wise savior of high sec for his vision, leadership, inspiration, and unending administrative efforts to wake pilots from the slow death of ambivalence.

    A special thanks to all of the pilots who sacrifice themselves for so worthy a cause !
