Now let's bring these abstract concepts to life. Review the following kills from the week of May 3rd @ 00:00 EVEtime through May 9th @ 23:59 EVEtime. As you do, consider whether or not the carebears involved have earned your respect.
A funny thing happened this week. Serren Travius lost a pod apparently worth 6.1 billion isk after Agent Ima Wreckyou destroyed Serren's fail-fit Retriever.
As you can see, I wasn't kidding about the fail-fit. But was the pod truly worth over 6 billion isk?
Re: Termination NoticeSerren seemed to think so. Actually, the killboards were wonky this week due to CCP handing out Genolution Core Augmention CA-3's and 4's like candy. Previously, they had been worth billions. How did the carebears react when freely granted these treasures?

Was not Bot and not AFT. By the way. Go fuck yourself
...They threw them away like garbage. Our Agents popped carebears who recklessly transported the implants in all kinds of ships: A destroyer, a rookie ship, a Rifter, and even (gasp) a Stabber.
Carebears, this is why you don't deserve nice things.
DiaRoss threw away several implants, along with 10 billion isk in other stuff (including 10 Machariels) in a speed-fit freighter. Agents Warr Akini, Rehtom Lamina, Benchat Mas, MINMATAR CITIZEN 24102115, MINMATAR CITIZEN 10220415, Gad'ui, Ikolo, MINMITAR CITIZEN 10230415, Turkey Baster, Dungar's Sister, Sasha Cohenberg, dude there's my-pod, and Jeremy Bustarhymes popped him.
Eagle-eyed readers will notice that DiaRoss hasn't changed much over the years. DiaRoss, of course, is the alt of the more famous DiaRosCris. Remember her?
DiaRosCris > pls suuport me..
DiaRosCris > so that CCP.. change that..
DiaRosCris > ERROR
DiaRosCris > we dont want to FIGHT!!! we WANT TO MINE!!!
DiaRosCris > BIG LETTER TO ccp--O CHANGE SO;ME things
DiaRosCris > oda i close my acout
DiaRosCris > cose of that.-.SHIT.. MININGBUMPER--com
After all this time, she's still getting freighters blown up. What a gal. She's the one who got away--or didn't.
Genolutions aside, some carebears managed to get genuinely expensive implants vaporized this week. Elisa Vilerum was plodding along, AFK autopiloting in a rookie ship when Agent Eva Mavas demanded that she stop. She didn't.
For someone "flying a ship that can't shoot back", Elisa had a lot of gunnery implants.
Meanwhile, Mopij broke new ground in the field of AFK pod-flying. Agent Aaaarrgg smashed his 1.9 billion isk Capsule, but only after Mopij had already gotten his 4.3 billion isk anti-tanked freighter ganked--five and a half hours earlier. His pod was simply floating on a gate in Uedama that entire time. No matter how long it takes, the New Order will always step in to clean up a mess.
Commander Lor was flying an Archon in nullsec until he was ambushed and destroyed by a 150-man fleet. Everyone wanted to get in on the capital killmail. But Agent Shamefuldirty of PERMIT REGULATORS corp had something else in mind. He quickly snapped up the 4 billion isk pod (worth nearly twice as much as the Archon itself).
Why would an Agent do such a thing? Shamefuldirty sent the pilot an EVEmail, explaining that he was being punished for "Archonpiloting without a permit". Yes, our Agent traveled to nullsec, waited for a capital to be blown up, and beat out 150 other people for the podkill, all so he could make this 4 billion isk joke. As I'm sure Commander Lor would agree, it was well worth it!
Some carebears need a little extra push toward compliance. Praedor Depran was busy wasting his tech III combat ship on a fight against a harmless NPC. Praedor didn't buy a permit. He thought he was safe in his chosen profession. He wasn't like those silly miners who can't shoot back. The NPC he was battling steadily chipped away at Praedor's defenses but couldn't quite break through. (Sounds like the way some of our Agents feel when dealing with an especially stubborn bot-aspirant!)
Then, victory. Agent Jaxi Wreckful swooped in and fired on Praedor with a gank Talos, putting the damage over the top and obliterating the tech III ship. It's symbolic, really: Highsec works best when we all work together.
Jaxi saves the day! I love it how the Code always wins!ReplyDelete
in your dreams .Delete
After which anom @ 1:50 wakes up and continues to mourne his retriever lossDelete
The attachment which miners have for ships which half the time they don't even bother to name is baffling. You'd think "Miner321's retriever" would be easy to forget, but nope. Months after the fact, they're still shiptoasting to avenge their ganked 20M ship.Delete
Well in the systems I'm in the Code is worth nothing. People don't even give a (insert word) about it. We bump their "agents" and they find their own way out,Delete
-.and we'll keep doing this, so bring more please.
How do you bump a ganking catalyst?Delete
They don't. Just another impotent miner spouting nonsenseDelete
go there and find outDelete
The "stupid" is strong with some off these pilots. But hey, if they want to toss ISK away like that, who are we to argue?ReplyDelete
antigankers fail again!ReplyDelete
and here starts another code circle jerk ..ReplyDelete
considering you lot are not supposed to care about isk, you sure do talk about it a lot .ReplyDelete
it's not respect that you earn, distaste, dislike, ridicule, indifference, these you earn by the bucket full.ReplyDelete
respect ....not so much .
Sounds like a bucket-full of tears to me :PDelete
You just proved the point there nitetime...Delete
Respect doesn't have to be graceful. Most miners respect and fear us, and they respond to these emotions with ridicule and real-life threats. For some reason they believe that they should fight us instead of embracing the Law we represent, and the only way they can find of fighting us is shitting up local (or the minerbumping comments). But their inability to properly process their respect for our pvp prowess, doesn't change that they do respect us. Their actions (tanking their ships, watching local and dscan, docking up to avoid wardecs) attest to that.Delete
I think you have confused action done for survivability with respect, maybe if more permits were purchased, and bios supporting you monkeys you could call it respect...Delete
The fact that they recognize that they need to adapt to our presence or die is in itself respect for our abilities. You don't adapt to what you don't think can hurt you.Delete
Plus, buying a permit is totally just a "not-dick" thing to do.Delete
You can shrug your shoulders, buy a permit, not be a dick about it, and there you go. No problems. You don't end up on minerbumping, and... just sometimes, you get praise from the Saviour for being cool.
Buying a permit just proves you're not a dick.
"it's not respect that you earn, distaste, dislike, ridicule, indifference, these you earn by the bucket full.Delete
respect ....not so much . "
this guy got it right . well said sir
maria, you are still wrong, just because someone recognizes that there are butthole around and takes steps to handle their BS does not mean respect...the steps can be taken to handle your BS while holding you totally in contempt...btw, tell ming to man up, he isn't listening to me...Delete
I think Ming-Senpai is bored of you, Anon. I am too, tbh, but I consider explaining things to you a form of community service so I power through it. It's certainly not an obligation though, and if Ming doesn't feel like condescending to speak with you today, I don't blame him.Delete
I think you and I have different definitions of "respect", Anon. Like, if a hurricane is coming toward your area and you take steps to protect your home from the awesome might of the storm, those protective measures you take show respect for that heavenly manifestation of divine fury. You can dislike the hurricane, as a thing which causes you inconvenience, while also respecting the hurricane, as a thing much more powerful than you from which you must protect yourself.
Now replace "hurricane" with "Agent" in the previous sentence, and you'll understand why I say you respect us.
Nope, try again...Delete
Crass denial does not a rebuttal make.Delete
Every time a miner gets ganked by CODE, it is because they made the choice to get ganked. It's not like the answer hasn't been before every highsec miner for years now. "Obey the Code, or lose your ship."Delete
We still find so many miners willing to lose their ship for something so preventable. It's like miners choosing "Death" when faced with the choice of "Cake or Death."
lol comparing code to a hurricane......i would say they were more like a dust devil actually (if even that )Delete
only noticed for their annoyance value.
Wouldn't your own comments fit that description better?
Code Gankers cause real damage to carebears. So much damage that these carebears feel the need to come here and tell us unfair they think that is. The power to compel carebears to do this is just that: Power.
Compare this power to that of the "peanut gallery" -style comments that regularly populate this site- comments such as yours.
Which is more powerful? The New Order? Or you?
If you answered "The New Order," then you are correct.
any miner that even thinks about compliance should die anyway.Delete
as always an over inflated opinion of yourselves prevails once again "paper tiger"Delete
what power? you kill a few clueless individuals in high sec and you think this to be power.... you set your sights very low it seems.Delete
you people have been doing this for years.(are you actually getting anywhere?)
power indeed. lol
Indeed, we are.
The New Order, if you recall, used to only own one system, Halaima. Through many shareholder votes, the New Order extended its authority, until, eventually, it made all of Highsec James 315 space- the state of affairs that exists today.
Every day more carebears see the light of what we are trying to do, and turn the corner to become Agents. Many of our most important Agents of the New Order were also once miners, but were warmed by the joy that we bring- unable to turn away, or better, unable to not give back.
Progress toward our goal is happening- even as some denialist carebears choose to attempt to ironically deny the level of popularity the New Order has gained in our 3 years of existence. Ask any carebear in highsec if they know who CODE are- and I bet more will tell you "Yes," than "No."
And you think that mining and shooting red crosses give you power... You set your sights very low it seems. You people have been doing this for years.(Are you actually getting anywhere?)
Power indeed, lol
And you think that mining and shooting red crosses give you power... You set your sights very low it seems. You people have been doing this for years.(Are you actually getting anywhere?)Delete
you own nothing (it's all in your head )Delete
there is not one system in new eden that displays the name of the new order in it, not one single solitary system.
the fact you inflict your misery upon folks who live there does not give you ownership.(i can hear the proxy vote bollocks already).
Being able to operate in a system or group of system without interference can indicate ownership, despite what the actual sovereignty is.Delete
You heard me... You think we have power, because we only "kill a few carebears" (By the way our killboard says otherwise...) Yet you seem to think you have power when all you are capable of is pressing F1 on rocks....
really? well then if thats the case i own the area of null sec where i live, because thats where i live and do my stuff. (hmm i wonder if i should tell the actual sov holders of your revelation lol ).Delete
Are you sure you live in Null sec? From the amount of tears coming from you I thought maybe we ganked your fail fit retriever or something.Delete
asia you have no power at all, never have had ... you operate in high sec because it's the only place you can operate without being completely anihilated.Delete
you kill unarmed ships piloted by completely clueless people,if they had a clue they would never get killed by such an inept organisation as yours lol.
then you come here and shout about power.
you shout about something you have none of, thats just silly lol
I'll give you a hint. Its in the same article that you are currently flooding with your tears :D
like i said completely clueless ^^^^Delete
asia you need to learn the difference between tears of laughter, and those tears that you seek.... mine i assure you are the former .Delete
Whatever you say anom, whatever you say...Delete
I patiently await your next volley of tears ;)
if it's genuine tears you await from me then your going to be here some time i fearDelete
(but go right ahead and wait) let me know when you see those flying pigs, and lucifer complains of the cold please.
"Progress toward our goal is happening"Delete
lmao not if they rely on you to kill something eh ming ? lmao
LMAO LMAO ROFL LOL LMAO ROFL LMAO LOL LOL LOL LMAODelete
More stupid ganking....senseless and purposeless violence...not like this shall highsec be changed.ReplyDelete
Keeps us informed when your grand plan to save Hi-Sec comes works out for you. I'd be interested in seeing how that goes.Delete
That would actually require him to undock and put some effort into something. That's never going to happen... People like veers would rather have CCP do his dirty work for him, then actually doing the work himself.Delete
It's sad that all these people come here and whine, but the same in game tools that we use to hunt them down, they can be using to defend their self or avoid us.
Please try and put a little effort into the game before whining on the forums like a 5 year old..
I was being nice, I was giving Veers and the rest of the carebears that come here to cry some constructive criticism and helpful advise :)Delete
The code ALWAYS wins!!!! ALWAYS!!!!
there's the "arrogant douche" again .Delete
Miner, please calm down! Your making a scene!Delete
This comment has been removed by the author.Delete
hmm comment removed .Delete
did i touch a nerve ?
Nope, double post... Keep trying though carebear, keep tryingDelete
lol there is always minimal effort on my part(you lot are only just worth the bare minimum at best).Delete
Yup that's true, I guess that is why you got your mining barge popped amirite?Delete
once again your wrong (but i guess your used to that) amirite?Delete
And this is where you provide proof by posting your killboard so we can see you have no mining barge losses, amirite?Delete
wrong again !! ... keep trying you may get something right eventually.Delete
Well you claim to have never lost a mining barge in high sec. You can't expect us to take your word for it, this being EvE and all.Delete
Until you prove otherwise, your just another tear dispensing carebear that is crying, because you got your routine fail fit retriever ganked.
your going for the "how many times can i be wrong award" today i see.Delete
if you were important enough for me to want to prove anything to you we wouldn't be having this chat lolDelete
So the only time you talk is when people aren't important enough for you to prove things to?
I'll bet you're glad you're not in the military. You'd be in a cell.
This is a family-oriented site!
Also calm down.
yeah the manson family (jimmy being your charles of course).Delete
We don't kill them for money. We kill them because they failed to pay us money for a permit, and/or and respect the Code. And yes, it is the Sovereign Right of Agents to take anything that we want from ships that we have destroyed. Those ships belong to the New Order.
Also, you're welcome.
No one knows what you just said... try Google translate?ReplyDelete
COME BACK TO ME!Delete
You have no sovereign rights? Fool, check your display it shows the NPC empires own highsec...btw, don't forget to man up ming...ReplyDelete
We don't kill them for money. We kill them because they failed to pay us money for a permit,ReplyDelete
isn't that killing them for money?
lmao minger talking about killing stuff !!! your zkillboard says you havent killed anything since june 17th 2014 lmao !!ReplyDelete
thats hysterical roflmao!!
well at least i can now write everything you say off as completely irrelevant.
i can't believe you spout this stuff like you believe it when you quite obviously don;t (if you did your killboard would show it)
and before you stars banging on about"lets see your killboard" i'm not the one who bangs on about ganking miners like you do.
code is truly ridiculous.
and don't talk to me about "agents" not needing to be active pvvp'ers your always trying to make out you do soooo much when you actually do fuck all, f except give them loads of isk (that apparently they don't care about).lmao
thanks for the laughs though ...... you are the epitomy of a "paper tiger".
LMAO LMAO LOL LMAO LOL LOL LMAO LOL LOL LOL ROFL ROFLReplyDelete
I was in Amarr today and saw a Charon pilot named BotAspirant. If this guy doesn't need the Order's help, I'm not sure who does.ReplyDelete
Colonel Maria Ming don't hunt.ReplyDelete
Pretty sure I do, actually. And with SRP provided in part by generous donations like Ming's. We all work together for the betterment of highsec.ReplyDelete
Try typing in horseshit in the Google and see if doesn't come out as Nazi-ese for Code.ReplyDelete
I tried and all it came up with was "Aldo Raine, Resident Minerbumping blog shitposter"Delete
Google never lies :P
