It has been said that the more love you give, the more you have. The same is true of the Code. The good that it generates leads to more Code and more good.
Case in point: Agent Kaely Tanniss' 2015 Women of the New Order calendar. Sales from the calendar were used to purchase New Order stock! As a result, Women of the New Order Calendar became a shareholder with 500 shares to its name. This sent us over the 547 billion isk mark and earned the calendar a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
...And what's the effect of New Order shares being sold? A lot of this:
More enforcement of the Code throughout all highsec. CODEdot alone managed to destroy over 1.1 trillion isk of bot-aspirancy during the month of January. We can all agree that New Order stock produces a healthy return on investment.
Feyd Rautha Harkonnen does player profiles of notable characters in EVE. If you haven't already, check out his interview of New Order Fleet Commander and zKillboard's #1 ranked PvP'er in EVE, Agent loyalanon. Who wouldn't want to learn more about this fascinating highsec celebrity?
Aaaah Lisanna Struss - pure gold. I never grow tire of hearing that one. A study in to the dark psychology of the average bear, yet so ... uplifting.ReplyDelete
This is what the purchase of New Order shares, and the purchase of mining permits, goes toward: keeping our noble Knights fully equipped to enforce the Code. There can be no nobler use for one's money in all of EvE.ReplyDelete
Equip our brave Knights
To spread the light of freedom
Throughout all highsec
I noticed the treasury keeps getting smaller and smaller all the time.ReplyDelete
If its true (which i doubt), then code has burned through 30 billion in the past month or so.
Either that or james is dipping his hand into the cookie jar again. Shame shame james.
Its all good either way, soon as code runs bankrupt james will run and they will have no more funding :)
When the Treasury gets smaller, that means that James 315 has handed out Glorious Reimbursement to His Agents, meaning that they will then go out and spread more Glorious Code Enforcement Action across the belts of Highsec. Have no fear, for that number will go up as more carebears convert to the New Order, or when people buy shares, or when James decides that he wants to put more in the wallet.
You do know about the story of Currin Trading, don't you?
With all that money as a reserve, Rest Assured, the day the New Order fails from lack of funding will be the day they shut down the servers.
code will go bust eventually...every griefer group does.Delete
You can't kill an ideal Veers..that's the difference between Code and other corps/alliances..or "griefers" as you call them. Grief is a matter of opinion..and a display of issues when you suffer "grief" from a game. If something that is not real can cause such feelings...a thorough search within yourself is in order. :)Delete
"Eventually" what like when the game shuts down?Delete
Kaely Kakes, tell that erotica1, obviously CCP has a different opinion about griefing. Why do gankers what they do if it doesnt matter anyway, because its just a supid video game? because they get a RL boner of destroyed ISK and "tears". All the rage and hate against carebears, although you'd lose your little sociopath sand box if they'd all just quit.Delete
Why is it so hard for carebears to understand that we do what we do out of altruism, and love for carebears? We want to save them from themselves, from their own base impulses. It's all spelled out extremely clearly in the Code, in the forums, in the comments sections of minerbumping, in people's bios....everywhere. And yet carebears ignore all this, and say we hate carebears, we're just after tears, etc.Delete
Is it that a carebear is incapable of understanding any altruistic motivations? Is it that a life spent slowly grinding isk has worn away any humanity within them, until the only non-monetary motivation they are capable of understanding is lashing out?
Yeah, that seems to be it.
Well I know that your talking is just roleplay-trolling crap, but still, the only ones that are truely altruistic are anti-gankers, because there are almost no "hard" rewards for that, nothing for the killboard, no loot etc, you just spent time for doing the good. Or what is your opinion on that? Isn't that altruistic? Killboard bragging of code btw (just read how proud loyal is of the amount of destroyed ISK) makes your "altrustic" blabla obsolete anyway.Delete
Active antigankers (y'know, the rare few who actually spend time trying to prevent ganks in-game instead of just whining in the antiganking channel or the forums) are altruistic, yes. They're also extremely rare, and more than one has ended up coming over to our side as they realize that the Code is the ultimate expression of altruism in highsec. As for the rest...no, they're not altruistic. There's nothing altruistic about complaining in the forums and in petitions to try to ensure that your playstyle is made safer at the expense of the game's risk/reward balance. It'd be like saying that Veers is altruistic because his whining in the forums doesn't have a "hard" reward. He's clearly stated that he does what he does because he hopes to influence the game developers to favor his preferred playstyle. That's about as far from altruism as it is possible to get.Delete
Anyway, why do you say that my talking is "roleplaying-trolling"? I am sincere. The Code is sincere. James is also sincere. We truly do wish to help save carebears from themselves, and we truly do believe that obsessively grinding imaginary spaceship money at the cost of social interaction is bad for people playing this game. Why is that hard to believe?
Anon 12.56 and VeersDelete
I disagree with your view points. I am by trade a miner, who with the help of the gankers learned to take steps to stop bot and bot style play. I like many indy based players see the good that code etc have brought to content game play. And hence why funds will always be put to buying shares, ships etc. With extra isk we don't need. To us, we see the wealth we have spare going to help others have fun.
Plus I have never bragged when one of my miners have flown a t2 fit catalyst, and popped retreivers, macks or hulks. Yet why at the same time I also see why code show their kills on killboards. Its not to brag, its to show how many bot programs, or even worse bot styled players ( who think there should be no risk involved in eve) are active in the game. All code really want, is a truly interactive player base, who realise that when you undock, you risk your ship etc.
Awesome :) A special thanks to all of you who were involved and purchased a copy. You know who you are. Without you, it could never have happened. XOXOReplyDelete
im wondering how many of the ones that purchased a copy got an hour in kaely's 'bonus room'?Delete
Ugh, carebears are disgusting.Delete
Anon...keep trying. One of these days maybe some woman will give you the time of day. Like I said before...you keep your head up kiddo :)Delete
Yes, yes you are maria, fortunately we dont hold it against you that your disgusting.ReplyDelete
It's a game....with a lot of 'fuc* yous' ' in it...but it's still a game...whine somewhere else. CODE, for all the ganking they do, add content and creativity. You may Hate those fuc*ers or you may love them. Doesn't matter. IT'S A GAME.ReplyDelete
