It was a morning like any other--calm, quiet, and ideal for punishing Code violators. A group of Agents did a little practice PvP in lowsec to sharpen their skills for the elite highsec combat that made them famous. Then, out of the clear blue, one of them was banned. Then another. This was no coincidence. Reports kept coming in of New Order Agents being banned. Confusion reigned throughout the day, but there was no mistaking that a coordinated ban wave had taken place. The fearful and unprovoked act inspired widespread outrage.
The events of September 10th were an unprecedented tragedy. Yet there were those who celebrated the loss of EVE life. Extremist carebears were seen dancing in the subreddits. The New Order has always had its enemies, but it was shocking to see bot-aspirants cheer the permabanning of innocents.
Why do they hate us? They hate what they see right here on MinerBumping: Emergent gameplay and content creation. They hate our freedoms: Our freedom to suicide gank, our freedom to wardec, to bump and awox and aggression-game, our freedom to scam in Jita and all across highsec.
To the forces of carebearism, the New Order stands as the most powerful force for freedom in EVE. We hold them back, lest they plunge our beloved game into the darkness of a risk-free theme park. The New Order will continue to fight, and will always remember those who have fallen in the defense of the true spirit of EVE.
When carebears want to scare each other at Halloween, they share stories about D400. He inspires dread among the rebels of highsec.
At a time when "solo PvP" more closely resembles "small gang PvP", D400 proved the power of the individual ganker. He has been called The Greatest Solo PvPer Ever.
D400, acting on his own, routinely inflicted more damage than entire nullsec alliances. He loved popping pods. He knew implants are not something to be taken for granted. In a single month, D400 destroyed 399 pods. Hundreds of his Thrashers were sacrificed, but he was always willing to give up more.
For his contributions, D400 received the rarest of honours: A personalized, signed portrait of me. He can't play EVE anymore, but he has the consolation of knowing he already won the game.
If you woke up one morning and discovered your corp's new CEO was Jerry Rin, someone probably made a terrible mistake.
Jerry loved all forms of highsec PvP. Ganker, awoxer, scammer... He did it all.
In one of his most famous triumphs, Jerry helped smash the Damned Defeat corporation after a daring awox. He continued to suicide gank under the "Damned Defeat" corp name for months to come.
Some people say he was a sociopath. That he had to be removed from the EVE community. But the Jerry I knew was a man of extraordinary personal integrity. Through all of his corp infiltrations and sabotages, he never forgot who he was. And none of his friends will forget who he was, either: The scammer with a heart of gold.
Our catalysts shall be emblazoned with the names of our fallen comrades. Every asteroid belt in New Order territory (formerly Carebearistan) will see the names Jerry Rin and D400 as a reminder to the Carebear Taliban (aka Al Qarbare) that while a New Order agent may fall, the New Order goes on and thrives.ReplyDelete
Get a grip dude, this is in the end, A GAME...Delete
Tell that to some guys which chose to follow a "fuehrer"...Delete

Amen Sister Borgia! We shall avenge every one of them 400 fold!Delete
D400 stood at the pinnacle of elite highsec PVP. If you lost a pod while autopiloting through highsec, chances were that D400 or somebody he trained killed your pod.ReplyDelete
D400's selfless commitment to the cause always amazed me. The way he would share his knowledge with fellow agents made him an asset to the New Order, and thus, an asset to highsec. All of us, from the raucous carebears of highsec, to the honest doublers of Jita, owe D400, a quiet warrior, a great debt.
Jerry Rin is one of the greatest awoxers in the history of EVE. Jerry (or, Arnold, as his close friends know him), is the best of the best. Beyond his incredible metagaming skills, he is a quick study in all things elite PVP -- whether gatecamping with D400 or freighter ganking with Loyalanon and company. Jerry Rin had more medals than I ever bothered to count. He earned every one of them. He told me so himself.
Within his own community, Jerry Rin was widely revered for his adherence to an uncompromising moral code. He was banned for doing what he loved. #Dominating
Jerry Rin can now dominate the hole which he was flushed out through!Delete
I agree with me, but I strongly oppose to why D400 was banned specifically. Banned for doing PvP in High Sec? Clearly Eve is steering from its own ideology.Delete
He was my favourite agent; a silent yet strong warrior. he did not do Elite PvP....he WAS Elite PvP in its purest form. A single man with greater combat prowess than most Alliances is to be commended, not shunned.
But alas, as James 315 said, ban or no ban, he will be remembered as the player who won Eve Online.
So i call James won to and he and his friends can play "the sims 4" for emotions and tears!
Bahahaha. That quote never gets old. +1Delete
(I really should resub my little ganker altswarm and bring my PS2-honed suicide skills back to EvE)
he deff ain't trained in "Gorila Warfare"Delete
I hope everyone realizes that the Google Account Veers Belvar is D400 and not me.Delete
Please no... anything but gorila warfare!!!Delete
Sounds way to much like Veer-speak. Delusions of grandeur, pompous, over-stating combat experience, and, of course, calling people who don't agree with him immediately idiots.Delete
What google account Veers Belvar? Either I'm missing something or you are Veers.Delete
Oh-seven, my fallen comrades-in-arms. We shan't forget thee.ReplyDelete
o7 Fallen Agents. Let us carry on the fight against the mewling hordes of ignorance and hate that continue to infest highsec (and the comments section of this blog).Delete
Bye bye elite clowns!
Elite PvP happens in...
the AT for example!
Where the CODE. ...
... tucked the tails between their legs and ran away.
After that they played childish excuse games but forget to contact CCP.
Bing Bangboom bada BAN! from AT!
We will never forget!
So we stand here and laugh hard when New Eden lost some of its biggest idiots and hipocrits. A great w(h)in(e) for the code.
To quote Scooter:
Shut up James and erotica1!
Your quoting skills leave much to be desired.Delete
No i do not tear up, thats all code tears.
All the hate? Sew wind and you earn a shitstorm.
And really? Hate?
How can one hate idiots like code-monkeys are. one should have compassion for those faggots! (LOL no just joking)
Homophobia and anti-gay slurs, the mark of a true intellectual.Delete
And i call you code-monkey!Delete
Is that racist too?
You really got it wrong!Delete
I respect gay people.
No not a little tiny bit.
If you cannot (or will not) understand how hate speech works, I don't know else what to say to you except to call it out for what it is.Delete
Anon @ 8:30Delete
We see what you did there. Your insistence on using terms that denigrate a group of people (and before you try, I'm not talking about "code-monkey") makes you seem as if a simple call to recognize the humanity of others threatens you.
Besides making a point of flaunting your ignorance and bigotry, I wonder if there is something else you need to come out with?
woooo anon fightDelete
@Anonymous October 6, 2014 at 8:43 PMDelete
Yes reactions sanctify your actions.
Truely a code-monkey speaking.
Funny you wannabe villains start to talk of political correctness when you think it fits you, but insist to "EVIL" yourself.
Such inconsistence is a sign of major stupidity.
You must ignore all the other important letters to act indignated.
that kind of argumentation is easy to see through.
no DJ??????? He was my favorite real life harasser.ReplyDelete
Let us weep for themReplyDelete
Fallen content creators
Their loss lessens us
Yes, please weep!Delete
Their loss lessens you, as you are only a little group of creeps with a lot of alts.
Hey you are lucky that bad haiku are no bannable offense.
"Hey you are lucky that bad haiku are no bannable offense."Delete
Everything is a bannable offense; it all depends which side of bed Falcon wakes up on.
If we're a small group of players with lots of alts, then their loss means someone just lost one, maybe two alts...out of "lots", and is therefore meaningless.Delete
If we're a lot of players with few alts, then their loss is awful for them, and sad for us, but doesn't diminish our ability to impact the culture of the game and move highsec in a positive direction...and is therefore meaningless.
"Harassed" if you do
And still "Harassed" if you don't...
My haiku kick ass!
Oh poor codies, now they are afraid of CCP Falcon, former friend and hero, now the cruel enemy!Delete
Every man dies; not every man really lives.Delete
D400 and Jerry Rin loved EVE, and in their lifetimes forever changed EVE for the better. Who can say that about the hateful, selfish carebear that cares only for the flashing of his wallet?
D400 is the nicest guy I've ever played with. He was enthusiastic and a real joy to game with.ReplyDelete
Jerry Rin will always be the master of the New Order's dojo. His decoration list says it all. Do yourself a favor and go check it out.
CCP really screwed up banning these two IMO.
Part 3 will break my heart </3 DJ
Well for sure theres not brain to affect.Delete
CCP screwed up?Delete
Man! You should really quit your accounts to make a valid and serious expression!
They were big players in the bonus rooms. That's why they got banned.Delete
Sad that creative players that get Eve are banned, but shrill do-nothings who want WoW in space just keep braying into our ears.Delete
Yes be afraid of WoW!Delete
EvE will be a themepark and loosers like you will have to play "the Sims4" to create tears.
No one will miss idiots who thought the where the only ones creating content.
LMAO! "people are playing differently than I am :/ therefore I will be butthurt"Delete
D400 and Jery Rin are butthurt, thats whats this tear post is about.Delete
But they have to play something else then EvE.
The sims 4, so they can still harvest tears.
@ anon 08:34 PMDelete
Neither player is butthurt. Jerry and I were so amused with our bans that we didn't even bother petitioning them. Everything went exactly as planned. This was a successful martyrdom operation.
Wait until you see what happens next.
Yes, because you knew petitioning would be useless. Maybe if you weren't a despicable bonus room harasser you would still be playing the game.Delete
Why would I petition my ban? It's great. I'd like another. It would mean I had once again stepped over the magical shifting line (or did it move past me?). In any case, I always find it amusing when bans are used as a public relations tool, especially when they are giftwrapped in some bizarre form of Icelandic moral universalism, as has been the case recently. I really do find that sort of thing amusing.Delete
For the record, I am the guy that found the game by clicking on the "Be the villain" banner advertisement. I'm not actually a bad guy. But I do play one in Eve. Too well, perhaps.
Admit I'm great at Eve.
Good at humiliating people in bonus rooms =/= "great at Eve." At humiliation and tear harvesting you are great, at actually playing Eve you are terrible.Delete
From the lips of the Eternal Carebear.Delete
EVE "be the villian" well as long as you play by the rules, which is a total contradiction of being a villian.Delete
D400 <3 <3ReplyDelete
Jerry Rin <3 <3
That is another banned alt.
Ain't that right royal moron?
You're wrong. But what can one expect from a carebear.Delete
No not wrong.Delete
Yet, like all martyrs, they merely fuel the raging ideological fires and activity even higher against those who foolishly thought to stamp it out.ReplyDelete
The Code always wins, and high sec will keep burning until the last carebear turns to crispbear!
Anyone can always win when you set your standard low enough...you code monkeys really amaze me with your arrogance...Delete
Anon @ 11:29Delete
Of course we amaze you. We are amazing!
Yes as in "amazingly stupid"Delete
Wow... James 315's handwriting looks like a 4th graders.. really bad. Just making an observation... dont get all butthurt chode ;)ReplyDelete
Actually, it's a pretty good effort for MS Paint! Even the Paint skills of the Supreme Protector are amazing!Delete
Yeah I hear his writing tools of choice are crayons...Delete
dont you have some monkey pictures to badly photo shop gorila?Delete
lol how did I know someone would say "blah blah blah MS paint is hard" no its not idiot, im very familiar w/ it.. It just goes to show that he has zero hand/eye coordination. that's probably why he never leaves the station..Delete
Not a day goes by with me thinking of our fallen comrades, the heroes of highsec.ReplyDelete

Kinda sad to see the love expressed for serially abusive real life harassers. These folks, along with accomplices James 315 and Loyalanon, belong in the dustbin of history.Delete
Anyone who plays Eve for mining or PvE is really special. I've done both and found both to be so dull and boring, the only reason to do it was with a great group of people, but even that doesn't last long as they get bored or do it while semi-afk.ReplyDelete
I've stopped playing Eve over the last few weeks I really did try to get back in to it, but it's the same no matter who you fly with.
Now that CCP wants to nerf and increase the work of the logistic players it's not a game it's a second job - for some people a seemingly full time job ensuring everything is in the right place at the right time and not fun once it's there.
For those that read MB.com who enjoy shooting rocks or red crosses all day - Well done, I guess you'll continue to play your MMO in the style of a single player game, just like you've always wanted.
Eve isn't dying though it is suffering from a death by a thousand cuts, mostly inflicted by CCP' choices these last few months, and by the next patch it will be even easier to justify living in high sec, rather than null with the jump range changes.
Good - more gameplay in highsec is excellent. Personally I would get rid of nullsec entirely and just have high and low, with the most of the action in high. I like the idea of a police force, and the concepts of law and order. There is no reason that Goons and PL can't operate in that kind of system, just like CODE and everyone else does. Nerfing JFs and getting everyone to move to highsec is wonderful for the game.Delete
not sure if real veers or troll veersDelete
The real one.Delete
they're the same person reallyDelete
I just hope I played a part in getting some gankers banned for good.ReplyDelete
That wasn't me. I played no part in getting players banned.Delete
Let me retract my recent statement; I played a LARGE role in getting some gankers banned for good.Delete
Also, please send me five billion ISK a month in tithe for existing.
My space lawyer senses are tingling.Delete
I am Veers Belvar and I approve this message.
I just came here to read the comments.ReplyDelete
Meh, just like in RL:ReplyDelete
There are unregulated subjects, then people show up who take it over the top, what leads to regulation.
Call them martyrs, in effect they are the totengraebers of freedom.

another fake veers.Delete
I don't use profanity....keep trying. If you weren't a dumb CODE agent you might do a better job at this.Delete
You really don't flatter me with your weak attempts to "police" other fake posters "anon" at 12:34 PM. Try and try again. Why don't you attempt to copy my success at the killboards next? :)Delete
I'm the real Veers Belvar and I've just found out about gankers misusing my name and fraudulently posting as me. This blog has 48 hours to remove all references to my name, or else I'll be forced to file subpoenas for IP addresses and identifying information from Google, pursuant to a defamation and harassment lawsuit.Delete
Since Google is headquartered in California, they fall under California Penal Code §646.9, which states:(a) Any person who willfully, maliciously, and repeatedly
follows or willfully and maliciously harasses another person and who
makes a credible threat with the intent to place that person in
reasonable fear for his or her safety, or the safety of his or her
immediate family is guilty of the crime of stalking, punishable by
imprisonment in a county jail for not more than one year, or by a
fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that
fine and imprisonment, or by imprisonment in the state prison.
(e) For the purposes of this section, "harasses" means engages in
a knowing and willful course of conduct directed at a specific person
that seriously alarms, annoys, torments, or terrorizes the person,
and that serves no legitimate purpose.
I will also be reporting all participants on this website to CCP, for causing me undue severe emotional distress and harassment. Trust me, I'm a lawyer, I know my stuff. Do the right thing.
Nevermind, I changed my mind.Delete
Has Anyone Really Been Far Even as Decided to Use Even Go Want to do Look More Like?Delete
Veers is going to have Google charged with harassing and threatening him! That totally makes sense! Look out, Google!Delete
Does the California Bar admit Eve space lawyers?
Veers demanding personal IRL information about people on a public internet blog... seems legit.Delete
By the way, Veers, how's Togo?
The vacation is going well. I see the fake Veers have picked up some of the slack in posting here? How is butchering helpless freighters going?Delete
Can i stop talking now? I'm on vacation! I'm not even supposed to be here!Delete
Or am I?
And we have another post full of bullshit. Seriously, who wants a signed portrait of the buffoon of highsec himself? The coward of code who runs the cowards of highsec? I doubt that CCP would ban someone without cause or justification which means they deserved it in some way. So all the time that was spent in building up a character, their isk, and lack of reputation has been lost. That's what this is really about, anger and tears.ReplyDelete
James, your tears has been recorded. Thank you for providing them.
Yepp, with the book of tears at The Mittani 16 Pages + 1 Page Extra Tears at the Mittani + 2 Pages of false Martyrs, DJames Book of Tears has now 19! Pages.Delete

Two of the kindest and most *fun* players I have ever had the fortune of working with right there.ReplyDelete
D400's understanding of game mechanics and strategy was amazing. And he was happy to share what he knew with anyone. Helpful, friendly, and just a pleasure to chat with.
Jerry Rin won EVE so hard it was not even funny. Hit up the yewtubes and check out some of his original videos - the guy was the king of the awox, would have you laughing within 5 mins of talking to him (be it text or voice) and just added so much joy to the game.
It's okay, Anon @ 6:44PM - I still love you :)ReplyDelete
D400: Best ganker ever!ReplyDelete
Jerry Rin: Awox'er of my heart!
It was always a pleasure to pass through D400 system, exchanged some talk. And this was also always a good chance to congratulate him peronally for the POTW and wish a good hunt for the next weeks POTW. Nice guy!ReplyDelete
OT: @DJ: downloaded your LIVE set. And One! Cool!
Thank you ever so much!Delete
I have so many live sets that I have done lately just sitting around collecting dust, need to actually take the time to master them and get them posted.
Means a lot to me that you enjoyed, thank you!
Just let me know, if you found the time and there is something new do listen to. Great stuff! Keep going!Delete
