EVE has an interesting progression system. The skill tree is not designed to provide older players with a massive advantage. Specialization allows new players to make a real contribution and compete with much older players. On the other hand, EVE's "learning cliff" means experience still counts for a lot.
Then you have people like Delwhin. He's been playing EVE for nearly 7 years. His big idea: to AFK autopilot through highsec in nothing but a pod.
Agent Tisiphone Dira was on the case. She exercised her authority to terminate Delwhin's pod. Incredibly, Delwhin then pretended to have no idea why Tisiphone wanted to speak with him.
Some people are very organized. Tisiphone is one such. She came to the meeting well prepared. With a level of professionalism that puts the GMs to shame, she went line-by-line through the Code and showed Delwhin where he fell short. Delwhin didn't have a leg to stand on.
Order and anarchy clashed. The battle of ideas raged in highsec once again.
One of the advantages of being an Agent of the New Order is that you're always backed up by an arsenal of ideas, facts, and philosophy. Tisiphone was ready to share the wisdom of the Code, on the platform of Delwhin's choosing.
Delwhin had a philosophy of his own: It's bad to pod people. If you pop their ship and then their pod, that's fine; if you kill a naked pod, that's a disgrace. Thus, Delwhin felt that by having less tank and less protection, he was more entitled to safety. Carebear logic.
Delwhin made an empty threat and repeated his claim that it's "low" to shoot someone's pod. It amazes me there are still people who think it's wrong to shoot a pod. Statistically, they are mistaken; pods are the ideal target. They have the lowest hitpoint to isk ratio, and implants aren't insured. You should always shoot a pod.
Next came a colorful analogy. There's only one problem here--a true warrior would never be passed out in the street. He would be alert and armed with his weapons at all times. Then, when he needed to go to sleep, he would log out. This is how the samurai did things for centuries. The New Order continues the practice today.
Progress? Delwhin declared that he would never go AFK in my territory again.
Hypocritically, Delwhin announced his intention to pod Tisiphone. It was another empty threat, but at least he confessed the legitimacy of podding people.
The carebear was a long way from total compliance, but it was readily apparent he was warming up to the Code. Truth be told, Tisiphone was probably the first person who had bothered to speak with Delwhin in many years. Our Agents never hesitate to make new friends. Consider the Code your letter of introduction to every man, woman, and child in highsec.
