The Martyrs of Highsec #4

If you have been paying close attention to highsec over the last several weeks, you've probably picked up on two important things. First, the New Order, CODEdot, and the Code are still here. Second, a lot of bot-aspirant carebears are dying--more than ever before, in fact. This flies in the face of all the propaganda that was being spouted by our enemies. They insisted the end of the New Order was right around the corner. How could they have gotten it so wrong? They're anti-Order rebels; they're always wrong. And the CODE always wins. Also, this:

The victims of September 10th may be gone in one sense, but they remain with us in another, more important, sense. They are the fire in our hearts.


People from all walks of life were banned during the 9/10 attacks. No class or profession was spared. Some, like Agent Sophaya Fortelleren, were writers and philosophers. You might recall Sophaya was the author of such fine New Order literature as "The First Apology: Kindness" (featuring a torture-free SoundCloud audio recording performed by Sasha Nyemtsov!) and "The Book of 315".


Some of the fallen were doughty gankers from hardscrabble backgrounds like Agent Luck Of-The-Irish. Like so many others, he came to the New Order looking for a better life. He found it. Luck Of-The-Irish didn't wait around for a handout in Jita. He knew that things of value only come from hard work. He put in the time and the effort, and the violence. People like Luck Of-The-Irish built modern highsec.


Not everyone who was banned on 9/10 made waves. Bob Starseeker was a silent supporter of the New Order. He preferred to idle silently in the in-game channels. Some might say he was only exercising his freedom of speech, or lack of speech. Yet he, too, somehow ended up on a watchlist of some kind. That was all it took. No accusation, no evidence, no trial, no explanation. Somebody pressed a button on a computer thousands of miles away, and Bob vanished, never to be seen again.


We don't see them; they still see us. They watch EVE from afar. They still care deeply about highsec and the legacy of emergent gameplay that they left behind. Today, we create content not only for ourselves, but also on behalf of those who were taken away before the job of saving highsec was finished.


If the permabanned were still playing EVE, they would tell the carebears not to be afraid. They would tell them to buy a mining permit and embrace the Code. Who knows how many lives they would have touched, if given extra time to live in highsec? It doesn't matter. They have already touched our lives, and it's enough. We who remain are sufficient to transform highsec into what it is meant to be.


The truth is, we don't know the identities of all the permabanned. Some we never knew, and others lack the ability to contact us. Regardless, we can never know all the permabanned, because there is always the possibility that others will be banned in the future--for any reason, or for no reason. Therefore, any celebration of the lives of banned players must also include a commemoration of the Unknown Permabanned. They cannot be named. Their contributions to our story remain anonymous. That doesn't make their heroic deeds count for less, but for more.

Brothers and sisters of the Code, we salute you.

  2. Good riddance. Nice to see CCP taking out the trash. How much time does Loyalanon have left?

    2. Good luck with trying to get me banned.

      Let me know what GM you deal with so we can both laugh at you.

      Delete
    3. How about the same GM that sent your vile associates DJ, Erotica1, and Jerry Rin packing? It turns out that being a despicable real life harasser has actual consequences, and quite rightly leads to permanent removal from Eve. Given your unstable temper and serious emotional issues I can't imagine you will be far behind.

    5. I don't know. Veers seems to like labeling people. Is that harassment?

      Delete
    6. Keep trying, idiot. I'm not the one who caused someone to have a panic attack in a "bonus room," I'm not the one who encouraged someone to commit real life suicide, and I'm not the one who routinely rages and posts stupid links in Uedama local. That's you and your colleagues, bro.

      Delete
    7. This is obviously not me. I would never use the term "bro".

      If you're going to imitate me, at least get that right.

      Delete
    8. Nice one D400....if you weren't such a sociopath you could still be playing the game instead of imitating me on minerbumping.com and eating stinky cheese in Sweden.

    9. I am pretty sure that Dryson and Veers are one and the same.

    10. See... nothing but insults. I have never had any connection or participation to any bonus room, and yet you feel you have the right to insult and label me.
      I feel harassed. Best be careful boy, you may find yourself on the end of a banhammer.

      Delete
    11. And I'd like to see these "rages" I have done in local in Uedama.
      Please provide proof.... but you can't, can you? Why? Because I don't yak in local. I don't discuss in local, because I don't give a fuck about local. Once again you slander me with false statements and blatant lies. You are on a slippery slope...

      Delete
    12. Code is on a slippery slope and code knows it.
      More uedama business, the botfleet kill. Some of you realized, that CCP kicked you in the curbs and stop with the harrassing part and do business.
      Resistance is growing and your opponents rows fill with more and more seniors and not just carebears.
      Stil as code still glorifies e1, code is about to sink. You already passed your zenith

      Delete
    13. Oh Colonel....it was aimed at your organization, not you specifically. At DJ, at Jerry, at D400, at Erotica1, at Loyalanon, and all the rest of the clowns. It's time to clean house - the first one who needs to go is chief tear collector Loyalanon.

      Delete
    14. Loyal doesn't collect tears, he liberates them. He's a highsec patriot.

      Delete
    15. You CODEfellows are a bunch of cowards. You can't win the game so you ask CCP to change the rules in you favor. What does that make you? Loosers.

      Delete
    16. losers* clearly fake veers but what the hell. If anyone has had the rules changed in their favour it's the carebears, no interest payments on suicides anymore, mining barges and exhumers buffed, freighters way more tankable (provided the pilot actually bothers to tank). Despite this they still call for more changes in their favour.

      Delete
    17. Veers..you make me want to join CODE... never thought it would happen until I ran into you.

      Delete
    18. Veers its sad, that you wish to see players who add content to the game bannned.
      You should hope like many in the game from all styles of gameplay, want the carebears, who think its a single player game, with no interaction and 100% safe environment banned.
      Eves a MMO game, that deserves the best gamers in it, not some bots.

      Delete
    19. Gorilla, you do realize a lot of the posts here are from Veers imposters, right? I also I shudder to think that you or any other decent people would want to join CODE "bonus room" style sociopathy. Please tell me that isn't what you meant.

      Delete
    20. Veers, you do realize I'm frenemies with several members of CODE? I've stated in the past my stance on Bonus Rooms. If CODE made a special task force that did nothing but hunt and pod you???I'd be very tempted to Kiss James invisible butt and join.

  3. Scorpion Venom1 will be sorely missed, he was a marvelous content creator and I had the opportunity to speak to him a precious few times and I have nothing but the utmost respect for him.

    1. Already did.

      The ONLY one that should NOT have been banned I think was Bob StarSeeker. As for the rest, they can suck my dick. When I pull it out of my pants, it slaps them up the side of their jaw. So Clara Pond, why don't you just lay back, take a load off, while I give you a load. It always makes a woman feel better when she knows that she has fulfilled her biological purpose.

  5. What happy fortune is this? A certain little birdy has just dropped something of a prize into my lap.

    I am in possession of incontrovertible proof regarding loyalanon's participation in the Erotica 1 bonus rooms. It turns out he isn't the only one.

    The New Order's time is almost up.

    I'll see you all in 416 station.

  7. Our martyrs fuel our fire! The only thing served by banning Code agents is more Code enforcement. The proof is in the killboard!

  8. Oohw give it a rest already with your whining about, they didn't do anything.

    The code has long overstepped what it was made for, When James315 had his chat with CCP about his idea they applaud it. He's taken it to for because some people are just sociopaths (everybody is a sociopath when put in a certain setting).

    Just Come out of the closet code members, carebears aren't going to think different of you null sec isn't going to think different about you. There is no reason to stay in the closet.

    Code's reply: i'm not in here though....

    They are to lame to wipe their own asses and call it pvp

    1. "They are to lame to wipe their own asses and call it pvp"

      I'm going to take a chance here and make an assumption, namely that you meant "PvP", rather than neglecting to include some vowels. Why would anyone call wiping their ass PvP?

      I'm very confused by your lack of clear communication.

    2. the comparison between what you call pvp and shit ...
      I like the way he thinks, im confused by your lack of knowing your pvp is shit

  10. You know i have not played this game for over a year now. And now i glad i do not. You people should really find a new way of making money in the game. And i still don't get what on earth you people are trying to do? Never paid your mining permits.

    1. Your inability to understand is a result of your focus on money. Ganking is unprofitable. By and large, gankers operate at a loss, or at the very least in a revenue-neutral way. Our Knights and Agents don't do what they do for the money.

      If you eliminate "profit" as a motivator, what other possibilities exist? Why might we want to alter players' behavior in highsec?

      Delete
    2. why would you if you've been out of the game for the last year?

      Delete
    3. why? because you are stupid and arrogant.
      you will change nothing, but are hated, not respected.
      as long you glorify antisocial behavior, you will fail.
      More than 9 guys banned, this was a shot cross the bows.
      How stupid can you be?

    4. If it's taken you a full year and still fail to understand the New Order, then the measure of stupidity is...

      Well, yourself.

  12. I salute them all for their selfless sacrifice. Their contributions, vital and varied as they were, have enabled us to help James 315 to expand this Organisation to its current astounding level.

    Thank you, all of you.
