Highsec Miner Grab Bag #76


If you've got questions, we've got answers. However, miners appreciate a lesson even more when they learn it for themselves...


No matter how you found MinerBumping, you came to the right place. Time for another edition of the Grab Bag!


An Agent who demands payment for a permit is not out of his mind; he's within the Code. Exactly where everyone ought to aspire to be.


Some miners are slower than others. Kirche Todes was ganked and podded, but insisted she'd "carry on in her gaming as if the incident never happened." It's hard to learn new things that way, isn't it?


An Agent of the New Order always causes a sensation in local. It's hard to imagine how silent highsec used to be, before we came on the scene.


Miners have all sorts of funny ideas about the way the game is supposed to be--and none of them are found in the Code. Tommy SpaceWarden felt it was inappropriate to gank a player after he disconnects. But I bet he'd be all over an asteroid that disconnected.


Solrac Tolan was pushing some new ideas of his own: He feels 0.5 security space shouldn't be considered part of highsec. Sorry, I'm not willing to give those systems up.


"Yes" to both questions.


Just as I've always suspected: The carebears don't really care about player retention at all!


Super Amario was one of those carebears who had a catchphrase he was trying to establish. Unfortunately, it raised more questions than answers. Our Agent instructed the miner to calm down...


...But the miner kept trying to make "don't forget the wet wipes" happen.


Agent Black Pedro had no idea what he was in for when he received an EVEmail with the subject line, "afdaf". Upon reading the message, it seems the subject was a bit misleading.


Last year, MinerBumping reported on Lisanna struss, who was All Strussed Out after losing her Drake.


She's still upset these days. I remain convinced that we can resolve our differences. We don't dislike the miners; we merely wish that they would apply themselves.


sam5 let loose a string of "fack" bombs. That's the difference between the New Order and its opponents: We have facts on our side, and all they have are facks.

  5. Yesterday and the day before, a six month old podding story.

    Today, crap from up to 15 months ago.

    Are we running out of material as fast as our kill numbers are dropping?

    1. You have seen how this article has been titled "Grab bag," right?

      These are random eve mails that have been sent to James over the years that don't quite warrant to make a full post. So yeah, you're gonna have some old material in there- but only because there's literally so much content that James would be writing all Grab Bag pieces if he were to post it all.

  6. lol, whenever your feeling a bit sad, all you got to do is log in this site and read some of the stories. Then all you got to think is, "Thank god im not a code member, then my life could really suck!"

    2. Miner, I'm gonna need you to calm down.

    3. DJ, Ming Tso, you two need to stop antagonizing the miners. They are good hard working folk even though they haven't changed their pod goo in ages. He is right, my code does suck since we can't win the AT, and all we can do is gank miners and freighters. So fellow codies, bow your heads in shame. Look at what we have become. The laughing stock of EvE Online.

    4. Shame on you and your terribly poor imitation.

    5. We say "miner calm down" because high blood pressure is the silent killer. We do care.

  7. I write shit on this blog every day, and for what, more shit posting trolls. So I have come to the following conclusion: know for a fact that I am full of shit when I wrote the code. It was all an RP stunt anyways and now it seems to have taken on a life of it's own. As for everyone else who is in code or who supports code, whether they believe my tripe or not has yet to be determined. After all, I am the James 315, the buffoon of highsec himself.

      The CODE always makes carebears try hard! Always!

      Looks like buffoonAnon has gotten more frustrated.

  8. There wouldn't be a need for a miner grab bag if CCP would take my advice and remove wardecs, HS pod killing, and have Concord become a fully active pre-crime force actively hunting people with negative sec status and giving free warp offs to anyone who is bumped. I know this because i'm a rich lawyer, a tea party activist, and an elite PvE superstar. The only thing holding me back from being a god is that i am bored and socially isolated from the rest of eve.

      If CCP followed what you wanted Veers BelvarApril 5, 2015 at 6:38 AM , EVE and the open ended sandbox MMO game that it is, wouldn't exist. And that would be a shame.
