How to Build a Successful Highsec Corp, Part 2

Previously, on MinerBumping... Agent Alana Charen-Teng awoxed Lunar Eclipse LLC, a "new Corp that just like to play the game and do whatever." gimilli, the corp's CEO, sent some money for mining permits, but he had a lot of questions about the Code. Some rebellious members of the corp discouraged their leader from bringing the corp into compliance. Senior New Order diplomat Agent Capt Starfox was brought in to save them from themselves.

gimilli had a three-part strategy to protect his corp from further New Order attacks. First, he would disband the corp. Second, he'd relocate their area of operations outside of New Order territory. Third, he wanted a guarantee of safe passage.

"All of highsec" took gimilli some time to grasp. For nine and a half years, he'd only played in highsec.

For extra protection, gimilli sent even more money for permits on behalf of his corp.

It was another victory for Capt Starfox. Everything was wrapped up with a neat little bow. Everyone was happy, all matters were resolved, gimilli stopped asking ridiculous questions, and...


Despite being linked to the Code and purchasing numerous permits, gimilli was as confused as ever.

Can we call this "SaviourOfHighsec.png"?

Most permit-owners are people who learned to embrace emergent gameplay. gimilli was fixated on the Orca that had been blown up in the awox attack. It was especially important to get reimbursement because the Orca pilot, Maya OStar, was a brand new player. (Naturally, her character was nearly eight and a half years old.)

After signing up for New Order citizenship, gimilli was beginning to experience buyer's remose. Nevertheless, Capt Starfox was able to answer all of his questions.

gimilli suddenly discovered the provision in the Code that forbids "excessive mining". He was worried he might violate that provision by mistake. My advice is, if you have any concerns about it, you should mine less.

Still, gimilli was brought into compliance, and he bought permits for everyone in the corp.

The question remained: Would gimilli's corp members actually obey the Code?

To be continued...


  1. The Code ALWAYS Wins!!!!! ALWAYS!!!!!

  2. Sigh.. so... close!

    The permit was in the bio! He just needed to not touch it and he would have been fine!

    when will carebears learn... :facepalm:

  3. Well done guys.

    It's quite surprsing how much work is required to sell New Order mining permits. Your professionalism, patience and friendly manner is commendable.

    The Code just carries on winning!!

  4. leechers all code agents are

    1. actually not a miner just call it as i see it so yea leecher

    2. Talks like Yoda anon at 10:59 PM does :D

  5. These are exactly the the new players Veers wants to protect. Take a moment to think about what James said here (twice!).. These new players are 8 or 9 years old. Sure they may be casual players or went away for a few years but one would think they would grasp the minimal knowledge of how to run a corp and keep yourself from being awoxed in 8 or 9 years. Veers why even bother "protecting" these idiots if they won't do the minimum to protect themselves? This is fundamentally why you are on the wrong side of the fight. For reasons unknown you wish to nurture ignorance whilst the CODE. teaches better game play thru experience. How does that compute?

  6. The fake Veers understand but the real Veers is mop used for cleaning up turds

  7. The silver lining to the last bit there, is that the miner had to actually be at his keyboard to modify the permit like that.

  8. You are now reading gimilli's text in Paul Sedaris's (aka the Rooster's) voice. You are welcome.

  9. you guys have nothing to do with "emergent gameplay " you just like to piss people off period. and that's the whole idea behind jimmy and his code he and his so called "agents " (I have to laugh every time I say that ) were ,are, and always will be griefers.

    you can dress it up however you like it still remains the same.
    your a bunch of people who like to piss people off for your own enjoyment.
    be honest ? admit it ?

  10. @ Alana Charen-Teng January 17, 2015 at 7:20 PM I am always perfectly calm. and I'm also not a miner. did I hit a nerve ? and that reply is one of those ganker bingo replies ? as opposed to your oft repeated references to miner bingo ?

    but anyway I know I'm right so go right ahead and admit you like to piss people off, go on.
    does it make you smile when you hear miners rage ?
    is your sole intent to ruin their day (if you can )?
    is it not " tear collection" that you enjoy the most ?
    at least pirates admit to being pirates you lot are just a different form of pirate is all .
    (albeit funnier) you know I'm right....right?

    1. Sigh.

      The reason why gankers don't "admit" that our love for and selfless dedication to the Code (and by extension all carebears, like you) is actually sociopathic griefing is because that's just false. It may be hard for you to understand motivations beyond petty ISK, anon@3:18, and for that I pity you. But your inability to comprehent human and idealistic motivations does not invalidate those motivations. We do what we do, not to make you cry, but to make you better. That you prefer tears to self-improvement is not our fault, it's yours.

    2. "Maria MalukkerJanuary 18, 2015 at 3:29 PM"
      That's what mr Hitler said too, to make a better world ;)

    3. @Maria MalukkerJanuary 18, 2015 at 3:29 PM

      who said anything about "sociopathic " or "idealism" ? and it's your inability to comprehend that to use your "idealism" and "motivation" to make people "better " by blowing them up is, was, and always will be flawed .
      the idea that you can improve someone by inflicting violence upon them is ridiculous. you know that what you do is griefing all dressed up to look like some kind of moral crusade to "make high sec a better place".
      now I agree that bots are detrimental to eve. afk'ers and auto piloters are another thing .
      but at least do the miners the courtesy of not spouting a load of old pish about the nonsense we all know is "the code" and just admit that your a bunch of pirates who use a weird logic to justify what you do when your just pirates plain and simple. you improve nothing. you harass people is what you do that's it.

      ps..everyone in new eden is a carebear sometimes ..even your highly motivated,idealistic, code bunnies...(read pirates as that's what you are ) oh and once again I am not a miner. have a good day
