Cody Fayden > why do you scare me? =)Several hours later, Nicolas paid a surprise visit to the carebear, who was running missions in a brand-new Tengu.
Nicolas Dupre > Checking up on how you're doing, you seem awake ;)
Cody Fayden > ah kk... my heart...
Cody Fayden > i didnt know other people can join my MissionplaceDespite four years of playing EVE, Cody had no idea that others could find him while he was grinding away in his highsec missions. Once again, only an Agent of the New Order bothered to help him learn the game.
Nicolas Dupre > You didn't? I saw a kestrel
Cody Fayden > yeah its in my fleet
Nicolas Dupre > Ah well you don't have to be in fleet
Cody Fayden > so everyone can come into my mission places?
Nicolas Dupre > Yeah
Nicolas Dupre > Hasn't anyone come before?Nicolas cautioned the carebear to always pay attention to local and obey the Code. You would think someone named "Cody" would remember the Code! But within minutes, Nicolas was shocked to see Cody go AFK. The carebear had relapsed.
Cody Fayden > nope... or i didnt see it
Nicolas Dupre > Okay, I'll just check up on you occasionally, it's good for your education :)
Cody Fayden > i dont know what the word occasionally means
Nicolas Dupre > Every now and again? From time to time?
Cody Fayden > ah i see your chat in the local now
Nicolas Dupre > Right, having local open is good
Nicolas considered how to punish Cody for his crimes. He couldn't suicide gank the Tengu. Nor could he plant another awox alt into Cody's corp, most likely. A wardec would give Cody warning that he didn't deserve. Thankfully, there was one more option.
In an effort to make highsec safer, CCP created kill rights to be exercised by carebears who get killed by gankers. To make highsec even safer, kill rights are earned even by failed gank attempts. Remember when Cody shot at Nicolas without activating the kill right first? It gave Nicolas a kill right against Cody.
Nicolas Dupre > I do in fact want to kill you againNicolas activated the kill right and surprised Cody, tackling his new Tengu. Now it was time to kill the Tengu and see how blingy it was. However, Nicolas couldn't help but see the carebear in a new light. He'd grown used to being Cody's mentor.
Cody Fayden > k, tha do what you have to do...
Nicolas Dupre > Well I will give you one option
Nicolas Dupre > If you die you lose SP too
Cody Fayden > i know
Nicolas Dupre > So you have one option to make this betterIf you die in a tech III ship (such as a Tengu), you lose skillpoints. Nicolas taught Cody how to eject from a ship and save his pod (and skillpoints). After four years of playing EVE, Cody had no idea this was even an option.
Nicolas Dupre > You could eject
Cody Fayden > how?
Nicolas Dupre > Right click your ship
Nicolas Dupre > It's an option there
Cody Fayden > ah ok
Cody ejected, and then Nicolas invited some other players to join in on the Tengu kill. Cody really hadn't learned his lesson; the Tengu was even blingier than the last one. It was worth 2 billion isk.
Cody Fayden > but i dont loose spThis loss was the most expensive yet. Even so, Cody was impressed by how helpful the Agent was in teaching him game mechanics.
Nicolas Dupre > See? That helps
Cody Fayden > why? why did you do that? help me to understand this?
Nicolas Dupre > Well, basically because it's fair play
Cody Fayden > you killed me often enough i think... now i doesn´t have any money... thats it for meAs the reality of the loss set in, Cody became increasingly focused on all the money he had lost at the hands of the New Order. He cursed the state of highsec and threatened to quit (again).
Cody Fayden > and obviously your not man enough to do it 1:1... in fact your an Ganker i think...
Nicolas Dupre > Well I just invited friends for this one because I wanted to share the joy
Cody Fayden > ah and all off you can fap now on my Tengu Wreck =)
Cody Fayden > than good fly and have fun to ruin that Game Kiddo, I get back to the Real Life and search for a other Game. A Game where aren´t Gankers like you and your little hard Boy Gang. Greetings at those
Disgusted, Cody threw away another 1.2 billion isk. In days, he'd lost over 6.5 billion isk. It was enough to knock sense into even the most hardened bot-aspirant. Still, Cody was addicted to bling and going AFK. If he fell from grace yet again, Nicolas would be there to catch him. He hoped he wouldn't have to. Another lesson would be costly indeed.
