The Most Honourable Pirate in Highsec, Part 1

Everyone knows how piracy works in EVE. It begins when a pirate tackles a ship and demands a ransom. If the ransom isn't paid, the pirate blows up the ship. If the ransom is paid, the pirate destroys the ship anyway. This is why the majority of EVE players won't pay a ransom if they get caught. But are there actually pirates in EVE who do honour their ransoms?


Zosius is a man of honour. This isn't surprising, given the fact that he's an Agent of the New Order. Zosius is also an expert PvP'er. He typically flies the lowly Enyo assault frigate, which he uses to clean up after highsec missioners. This activity flags him, allowing others to attack him freely. The mission-runners don't think much of the tiny Enyo, so they often take the opportunity to to shoot Zosius.


The ignoble carebear thinks himself superior because he flies a bigger, more expensive ship. Naturally, the carebear thinks in terms of isk. He ignores the value of skill--and the power of the Code. As you can see from Zosius' killboard, he frequently uses his little Enyo to solo-kill expensive battleships. He is an elite PvP'er who shoots ships that can shoot back. (Indeed, these carebears shoot first.)


As with his honourable nature, Zosius' elite PvP prowess is unsurprising, given his status as a New Order Agent. When Ellie Alvarsson attacked him with her Dominix, the confident mission-runner soon found herself on the losing side of the battle. Zosius opened up a private convo with the newly talkative carebear.
Zosius > how about 100mil
Zosius > and i let you go
Ellie Alvarsson > alright fine, call off your scram first
Zosius > are you kidding
Zosius > what will stop you to warp off and not pay me
Ellie Alvarsson > what will stop you from killing me after I pay you
Ellie was now Zosius' hostage. The pirate demanded a small ransom. So far, so good. But their relationship took a turn for the worse when Ellie tried to scam Zosius and get away for free.
Zosius > usually the pirates dictate the term
Ellie Alvarsson > alright fine, you win
Zosius > wait a second
Zosius > i just checked the market
Ellie Alvarsson > call off the attack man
Zosius > and ship costs 180 mil
Ellie Alvarsson > dude I gave you your 100 mil
Zosius > so i will need 50mil to make it fair
Zosius gave Ellie another chance. He was rewarded with the 100 million isk he asked for. But when he checked the market value of a Dominix, he was stunned to realize Ellie had tried to scam him again! Zosius directed Ellie to make amends.
Zosius > now please eject it
Zosius > so i can make sure yo udo not have eanything in cargo
Zosius > which also increase value of your ship
Ellie Alvarsson > I have nothing
Zosius > I do not believe you
Ellie Alvarsson > I have drones in my cargo
Zosius > I am positive you have cargo
Ellie Alvarsson > there's my cargo
Ellie Alvarsson > 8000 bullets
Mutual trust is the foundation of any relationship. Because of Ellie's prior deceptions, Zosius found it difficult to trust his hostage. Even when it came to the relatively insignificant matter of Ellie's cargo, she continued to lie to him.
Zosius > ok
Zosius > lets do this
Ellie Alvarsson > that's my entire cargo, now let me go man
Zosius > are you familiar with new order?
It was then that Zosius realized he was dealing with a greedy bot-aspirant. There was only one answer: He must share the Code while he still had a captive audience.
Ellie Alvarsson > I'm not interested, now can you stop scramming me?
Zosius > are you telling me you are not interested in the New Order?
Ellie Alvarsson > yes
Ellie Alvarsson > I gave you 150 mil bro, just call it off
Zosius > would you be interested in buying a mining permit?
Ellie Alvarsson > you demanded 150 million, which is my entire ships'
Ellie Alvarsson > ship's worth
Ellie Alvarsson > and I gave it to you
Zosius > that is fair
Zosius > we are talking now about New Order
Zosius was an honourable pirate. He always honoured his ransoms. Now that the ransom had been paid, Ellie's safety was assured. There was no way that this scenario was going to end with the destruction of Ellie's Dominix. The hostage-taking business was concluded. But that didn't mean Ellie needed to go running off in a hurry.
Ellie Alvarsson > so you broke your side of the agreement
Ellie Alvarsson > that you would stop scramming me if I gave you a ridiculous amount of money
Zosius > I haven't killed you now, have I?
Ellie Alvarsson > you're continuing DPS, which will eventually kill me
Zosius > stop repairing ship
Liars tend to project their own dishonest nature onto others. They assume everyone else is as deceitful as they are. Ellie was paranoid and suspicious of Zosius. She couldn't believe he would maintain his honourable conduct.
Ellie Alvarsson > why would I do thatA?
Zosius > i am stopping dps, but since you repair
Ellie Alvarsson > I'm not going to sit at hull
Zosius > i have to keep it low
Ellie Alvarsson > so why would I buy your mining permit if I don't even want to mine?
Zosius > any pve done in high sec
Zosius > must abide by New Order rules
Ellie Alvarsson > uh huh
Zosius calmly explained why he had to keep up his DPS against Ellie's Dominix. There was no reason she needed to be so afraid of having her ship destroyed. Despite the fact that Zosius guaranteed her safety, Ellie found it difficult to just relax and have a conversation about the Code.
Andouille Sausage > Greetings, Agent Zosius.
Zosius > Andouille is official knight of new order
Zosius > he would like to tell you advantages of owning a mining permit
Zosius > Ellie Alvarsson was saying he was not intersted in New order
Zosius > I am holding his ship hostage
Zosius > was about to let it go
Andouille Sausage > I see.
Therefore, Zosius called on a fellow Agent of the New Order to assist in the process.
Zosius > and he says he has nothing to do with New Order
Andouille Sausage > Ellie Alvarsson I'm afraid that you really would benefit from a Mining permit.
Andouille Sausage > Such a permit will make it clear, when displayed prominently on your bio that you support james 315, glorious leader and saviour of highsec and the New Order and that you have agreed to follow the New Halaima Code of Conduct.
Ellie Alvarsson > so if I give you 10 mil more isk you'll let me go?
Zosius > its not about isk. its about pledging your loyalty to James 315 and New Order
Remember what I said about carebears viewing everything in terms of isk? In her mind, the mission-runner reduced the Code to nothing more than a 10 million isk ransom.
Andouille Sausage > Zosius will let you go regardless after we've talked, I think.
Andouille Sausage > That's up to him, though.
Zosius > I will let go Ellie Alvarsson
Ignoring all of the reassurance she'd been given, Ellie remained a skittish carebear. No doubt our Agents were tempted to say, "Mission-runner calm down." As long as the warp disruptor held her Dominix in place, she could barely pay attention to the lesson about the Code. Obviously, she feared Zosius might blow up her ship at any moment.

Would Ellie buy a mining permit? What would be the fate of her beloved Dominix? Would Zosius keep up his perfect record of honouring ransoms? The answers might shock you.

To be continued...

      How did the Agent grief the carebear, when it was the carebear that shot at the Agent first? How is this not explicitly a case of self-defense?

      In other words, how did the carebear get the suspect timer that allowed the Agent to legally engage him without CONCORD intervention?

    7. Since you are to stupid, ming, I'll tell you...he stole from the mission runners wrecks which will give him a suspect flag, the mission runner had the RIGHT to shoot the CRIMINAL...however, the criminal agent had this whole thing planned out...but this proves that code. is a bunch of lying, thieving pirates...

      Delete
    8. Calm down, miner!

      So once the carebear had excercised his right to defend his salvage, the Agent excercised his right to defend himself? What is wrong with the Agent defending himself after being lawfully attacked? Shouldn't the carebear have known that his mission ship wasn't equipped to handle an Enyo? Shouldn't the carebear have re-shipped to something that can kill an Enyo? How is this anything but the carebear's fault for not knowing that any time you are threatened by a close-range blaster-equipped frigate, the solution is either a long-range fast ship like a Crow (or Condor) or a double web brawler with Scram like a Hookbill? Isn't the Carebear responsible for knowing that rockets have a 8-12 km range, while blasters with Null only reasonably hit out to 5-7km?

      Why do you think that the Carebear didn't know that? And now, after all that, why is this anyone except the Carebear's fault for attempting to engage in PVP without brains?

    9. Anon 11:59pm
      let me educate you on the details of the crimewatch system. Suspect flag does not make you a criminal. Criminal flag makes you a criminal, who's promptly dispatched by CONCORD.

      Pilot with suspect flag is, surprise, surprise, a suspect. By all legal systems, he's innocent until proven guilty. Carebear took it upon himself to prove that Agent was guilty, challenging him to fight while having immense advantage (battleship against a frigate! I'm sure the Carebear was laughing while opening fire at Enyo). I also count on Carebear to position himself properly prior to fight actually begun, thus preventing Enyo from getting on tight orbit too soon.

      We can only admire Agent's elite piloting skills, which again saved the day. The trial by combat proves that it's Carebear who was a criminal in this whole story.

    10. do, being an agent of code makes you a criminal...

    11. Anon 12:36am, so when exactly a pilot becomes criminal, which Carebear can shoot without CONCORD intervention? Is it enough for a pilot to put link to www.minerbumping.com in his/her bio?

    13. Alana Charen-Teng nailed it. Back when I used to be a player, the carebear would launch into these rants often - about how since I am a CRIMINAL when I shoot someones spaceship in highsec, it must mean that I am somehow (a sociopath, exploiting, morally inferior, etc).

      The only answer to this line of argument, is of course, STRAWBERRY.

      Really, miners - we are aware that when we go GCC by shooting you, CONCORD will kill us. That's why it's called a "suicide gank". Welcome to EVE online!

    14. Wow. I really surprises me sometimes the blatant whining of some people who just can't grasp what the game is about. Tbh, never in my life have I seen such a plethora of whiny, so-called men assembled in the same place. It's like kids on the school yard crying how "it's not fair" because they suck, don't pay attention, refuse to prepare, or just can't seem to win. If you can't handle kickball...you better go play handball with the girls. It's kind of sad when the one who doesn't even have balls, has a bigger pair than a vast majority of the "men" who play Eve. I use the term "men" loosely...because real men HTFU and do something rather than whine about it. For god's sake...grow a pair..or have they not descended yet.... :P XOXO

  3. Out of curiosity, why don't you just call them High Sec Permits? It would reduce a lot of confusion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because they are Mining permits. And the Code calls for anyone engaged in what would it calls "Highsec activities" to have a Mining Permit. If they had a "High Sec Permit" as you suggest, that would lead to confusion at the bureaucratic level, for having the incorrect permit type, and the permit holder, while he or she may have paid their 10 million isk, might still be susceptible to ganking and bumping. This is why we do not rename them. Thanks for your question, I'm glad we could be of help.

  5. Hello everyone,
    My in game name is Ellie Alvarsson. Ild just like to point out that none of this story ever did happen. I do run missions in high sec space, but i have never met this guy, he never webbed me, and he never ransomed me like in this story. That is all this is, a made up story.

Roleplaying a dumb story about me supposedly going through this is fine, but when i start getting rl harrassment in game its a different story. One of your 'agents' descided to take it upon himself to convo me in game and describe how he would visit me at home, and explained all the things he planned on doing. Screenshots of that conversation have been sent to ccp, as well as my local police department have been informed. I certainly hope the rest of you code members are wiser then the one that contacted me. Any other contact with me in game will also be made into screenshots and forwarded to ccp.

  6. And this is the exact reason why I will not pay a ransom. I will self destruct the ship to piss in the pirate's mouth before I will pay it. Man of honor? Yeah right. Just another pirate scumbag.

    And it was damned right out of Jimmy Boy's story:

    Zosius > how about 100mil
    Zosius > and i let you go
    Ellie Alvarsson > alright fine, call off your scram first
    Zosius > are you kidding
    Zosius > what will stop you to warp off and not pay me
    Ellie Alvarsson > what will stop you from killing me after I pay you
    Zosius > usually the pirates dictate the term
    Ellie Alvarsson > alright fine, you win
    Zosius > wait a second
    Zosius > i just checked the market
    Ellie Alvarsson > call off the attack man
    Zosius > and ship costs 180 mil
    Ellie Alvarsson > dude I gave you your 100 mil
    Zosius > so i will need 50mil to make it fair

    Sorry, but the initial agreed upon price is what it should have been. If Zosius was honorable, he would have stuck with the 100 million, but then he wanted another 50 million. Sorry, I would have self destructed. Of course, the NO with their logic disconnect wants you to believe that they are working for the good of highsec, but they are pirates, gankers, and griefers all the same.

      The mistake that many permit holders make is AFK autopiloting. You will see many an irate carebear out there complaining that we don't honor our permits because they were busy slowboating 15km to a gate while thinking their permit protected them from following the Code. We kill anyone who does that, permit or not.

      Delete
    5. Yes Anon@1:55, we do expect people to follow the Code. I don't know why carebears seem to continually find that shocking. Using cargo expanders instead of a tank is bot-aspirant, as is transporting an excessive amount of value in one trip even with a tank. It's all in the Code, so I don't know why this is still surprising to you.

      Delete
    6. Cargo expanders are against the Code, because that's just like walking down a dark alley in Chicago in a skimpy red dress, winking at everyone you come across, instead of a puffy coat with a hood. You're just asking the pirates to gank you.

      Piloting with more than 1B isk in your cargo is against the Code, because that's like walking down a dark alley in Chicago with $100 bills taped to the outside of your jacket. (Gankers can see what you have, you know)

      Mining in a battleship is stupid, because that's like walking down a dark alley in Chicago, while weighing 400 pounds, smoking crack, and insulting everyone you come across.

      Are you seeing the pattern here? The Code is attempting to try to get you to be a better, not worse, EVE player. EVE is a cold, dark place, like the dark alleys in Chicago, and when you do certain things that you think you might be entitled to do, other places, bad things happen to you.

      And it's not the fault of the person doing them to you, it's your fault for not obeying the message that's plainly written on the "wall," meaning written on "cans in belts" ingame.

    12. It's interesting that you tried to mix in valid reasons to kill a permit-holder (having a bot-aspirant fit is "don't like your fit", and I'm assuming that showing disrespect to a Code Agent is what you meant by "they don't like you"?) with invalid, fictitious reasons to do so ("they are bored", "they changed the rules").

      Since it was first published, the Code has never been changed. It is a single, perfect document, which needs no further embellishments to provide justice for all citizens of highsec. The rules simply don't change. And how could our Agents ever be bored? Highsec is still unbearably full of bot-aspirants and carebears, and their work is never done. How would they get bored when there's always so much to do?

      It's easy to say "they're lying!" while hiding behind anonymity and providing no supporting evidence, Anon. If you had any proof of an Agent's malfeasance, any at all, you'd be shouting it from the rooftops. That you are reduced to hiding your identity and making unsupported slanders is actually evidence in favor of the integrity of our Agents.

    14. @Anon7:12
      It doesn't matter to me what you do. If you do fly with Cargo expanders, you will be found in non-compliance of the Code. Your freighter will be killed, and your cargo, (which you needed a little extra room for,) will be confiscated by the New Order, and used to further promote Code compliance. And if you aren't killed by us, you'll be killed by someone else.

      The point of fitting tank and not fitting Cargo expanders is what I said above- The CODE is attempting to protect you by mandating that you not undock to the cold of space protected only by the equivalent of little red panties and whipped cream. Dressed as indecently as this, anyone should be able take your freighter away from you with little to no effort. If you fit the tank, you at least make the pirate have to work to kill your oversized amount of money

      There is no way you can win this argument. CODE. always wins. If you wish to keep giving us kills, and you wish to keep donating to the New Order in this way, then be our guest. We like little red panties as much as the next person. If you wish to buy a permit and fit the tank, The Code wins that way too. Although you might find that you win just a little more this way, since you'll only be out 10 million isk and your cargo will arrive safely at its destination.

      We don't mind either way. But we will get our 10 million isk in the end. In that, you do not have a choice.

      Delete
    15. I need to read through it again in regards to the rules they have on freighters

      Delete
    16. You won't find the rules about freighters specifically in The Code, as it is a living, breathing document, much like the U.S. Constitution, and James 315 is its sole interpreter. As time has gone by, the rules about anti-tanking that have always applied to miners have grown to apply to freighters as well. This happened when The New Order allowed Freighter pilots to be covered under the same Mining Permit that miners are required to purchase to ensure safe carebearing in James 315 territory.

      Like miners, all highsec residents, including freighter pilots, are assumed to have assented to New Order Rule, and as such, the rules about anti-tanking ships apply to freighters and any sort of hauler, just as they have to miners.

      I hope this clears up some of the confusion.

      we all know you have killed permit holders for the vague reason of "non-compliance" which we also know means whatever the code says it means hence the "made up " portion.
      it's very easy to say "your lying " because you are.
      and my anonymity is of no consequence as i live where you don't .
      and if i do encounter you on rare occasion i engage you it's easy and it's fun
      your domineering tactics do not work where i live.
      which is why i say to all "carebears " just move. add the code to your watchlist,
      if they come move it's easy they cant kill what they can't find.
      even better leave high sec altogether let them come to null in ther catys and see what happens lol IT REALLY IS THAT EASY ....

    18. And just like that, Anon@9:18 became Code-Compliant.

      You see, Anon@9:18, a little known secret about CODE., is that carebears can easily become Code-Compliant by simply moving out of Highsec.

      James 315 intentionally has no dominion over Low and Nullsec, because, that's where we want all carebears to eventually end up. Low and Nullsec are wonderful places to be, full of interesting people and exciting adventures. The entire point of The Code is to make the safe life in Highsec so excruciating and dangerous for people who demand safety, that they actually prefer to live in the areas of space where the most exciting content happens.

      Congratulations, you have figured out how to win our game, and become Code-Compliant! Maybe someday, you will come back and join the New Order, and help others find the path you have found.

      Like you said, it really IS that easy.

    19. james has no dominion at all anywhere. he just thinks he does.(you guys just like popping unwary afk'ers and auto piloters and the like) and the code does not work in null because the rules are very different as you know. so it's not an intentional "no dominion" it's more like an "i can't have dominion" in null and low for that matter but i would like to ask do you really think you will force everybody out of high ? and if so what happens to high if you do ? does it become some kind of wasteland like in mad max ? or a no mans land like in ww1?

    20. You still don't understand. The New Order and James 315 have no desire to live in Low or Nullsec- it would be like nuns helping the super-rich. The Code simply is not needed in these places because these places are full of rational, careful, well-balanced people who already follow The Code, as well as plenty of risk. The New Order isn't needed in these places because... well, there are no problems to solve.

      The New Order isn't an really an evil organization; we only appear that way to bot-aspirants and other individuals who declare that EVE Online should be a "safe" game. From the beginning of EVE, these "Carebears" have sought their squalid existences in highsec, and become atttached and entitled to their meager ways. They have ignored, mostly through fear, the riches that await them should they dare to cross over that low or nullsec gate, and avoid any sort of player vs. player combat like the plague- and actually attempt to extinquish it through their influence. The New Order seeks to make these squalid individuals' lives more squalid, more boring, more frustrating, more indefensible, and more pointless until they eventually (like you did) wise up, say "Highsec is a bunch of fucking shit, fuck this place" and venture off into Low or null where they can figure out that EVE really is, "a one of a kind, dangerous, incredible game, with deep adventure, pulse-pounding excitement, amazing rewards, and the only game that winning a fight makes you feel like you've won a fight in real life-better than any other game out there," or they quit the game, in which case, the New Order has served the EVE Online community by defending it from people who would erode its sense of uniqueness in their quest to turn it into every other boring theme park game out there.

      This is what we mean by "The Code Always Wins." Because for each player we get to pack up or go to Low or Null, CCP gains a -permanent- subscriber, (in that if they unsub, they never stop reading about EVE.) And for each entitled Highsec carebear we get to quit the game, the game community becomes a little bit better- less whining, more doing, more people who are dependable, more dangerous, more fun, and much more satisfying to be around.

      The Code ALWAYS Wins!!!! ALWAYS!!!!
      Another Agent of the New Order! This is truly a happy day!

      If you haven't done so yet, be sure to poke your nearest friendly Agent and get set up with a New Order Permit, and then fit out an ship with the best DPS you can muster. This way you can consummate your intentions by performing your first gank, your "Baptism by Concord."

      Since this is a special occasion, many former carebears becoming Agents find it customary to bring the ship they used to grind rats in, like a Drake, or a Raven, to be sacrificed. This symbolizes the "death of one life, and the beginning of a new life as an Agent of the New Order." Your permitting Agent can help you find the most effective ganking fit for the ship, so that you can use it one last time, but this time, for the cause of good.

      Once again, I wish you the best, and on behalf of James 315, I welcome you to the New Order of Highsec! Congratulations!

  10. "As you can see from Zosius' killboard, he frequently uses his little Enyo to solo-kill expensive battleships. He is an elite PvP'er who shoots ships that can shoot back. (Indeed, these carebears shoot first.)"

    Really, doesn't seem like it to me - you seemed to have forgotten to mention the (presumably dual boxed) Augoror (or two in some cases) which also make regular appearance on his killmails.

    Of course if you're not ganging up on players who can't fight back (irrespective of whether they can technically shoot back) - (like a Domi vs an Assault Frig receiving cap and armor logi from Augorors) then I guess its not what you consider l33t PvP.

    Just one question who was the off-grid booster?

    1. So you say that battleships can't fight back. It's a nice shift from usual tune of "CODE never attacks ships that can shoot back", but again, is utter rubbish.

      It seems the anti-CODE scum won't be satisfied until CODE shows a solo kill of dreadnought, done by noobship, and even then will probably claim that dread couldn't fight back because noobship is too small a target.

      I mean, come on. What kind of fight you guys want to see to finally say "yes, CODE is a truly elite PVP force"?

    2. "What kind of fight you guys want to see to finally say, 'Yes, CODE is a truly elite PVP force'?"

      Seeing as how they deny the fact that Loyal is objectively the #1 PVPer in Eve, absolutely nothing will convince them of this. Let them live in their own little fantasy world.

  11. Yeah... nah... this isn't a proper CODE. story and you should feel bad for offering it up. Normally you guys are clever and scary and I enjoy being intimidated by you (rest assured I never afk because I hate dying, and you guys are *usually* suitably threatening). But this is just douchebaggery and a failed attempt at extending your purvey. Not intimidated, not impressed. Just another ordinary story about a bottom-feeder's low-class extortion adventure. Meh.

    2. Carebears just don't get it, but that's ok. They will be a part of the sandbox whether they want too or not... that's the nature of the sandbox.

      Now quit whining, shake the sand from your panties and play the damn game.
