Agent Celebrates Two Hundred Mining Permits

The New Order has earned a unique place in video game history. There has never been an entity quite like us. The isk grinding of the carebears is forgotten almost as soon as it happens, but a thousand years from now, people will still be talking about the New Order of Highsec.


In this way, our Agents achieve a kind of immortality. Their accomplishments blaze a trail, providing an example to all who engage in sandbox games.


Consider, for a moment, Agent Liek DarZ. One look at his killboard stats and you know he's an elite PvP'er. You think your pods are safe? They're not.


A second look at his killboard stats, and your respect for the man only grows further. As of this writing: 404 exhumers and 1,030 mining barges terminated. Probably all of them were surprised.


People often ask, "Are mining permits really a thing? Do people actually buy those?" Yes, and yes.


Liek DarZ loves to sell mining permits. He decided to create a photo record of them for posterity.


Our Agent soon realized that he'd sold so many permits that an album of all the photos would be quite difficult to compile. He began taking screenshots of the list of screenshots, instead. Meta-screenshots, if you will.


On and on and on the list goes. This offers a visualization of just some of the permits sold by a single Agent of the New Order.


Liek DarZ snapped a photo each time a miner was rescued. But did all of the miners stay on the straight and narrow, or did some of them stray?


As we tell the carebears, we're not only interested in your 10 million isk. It's your compliance that we're really after. Liek kept a close eye on his flock. Can you believe that some miners forfeited their permits after only 30 minutes? That's like ordering a pizza and throwing it into the garbage before you take a bite. Miners can be so weird.


As recounted in MinerBumping posts such as this one, we occasionally get permit owners who commit treason. On the other hand, we also see hardened rebels who eventually give in and buy a permit. The traitors, then, are simply miners who must buy a permit more than once.


The list of Liek's customers grew. To assist him in keeping a tally, Liek began marking every tenth permit.


At last, Liek DarZ reached a tremendous milestone: 200 permits sold. The two hundredth permit owner, Nova Outburst, apparently couldn't handle the pressures of legacy; it wasn't long before he biomassed himself. No matter, there are always more miners in need of permits.

And so Liek sold 2 billion isk worth of mining permits. It's an impressive number of miners to bring into the fold. Other Agents have roped in their fair share of miners, too. As for me, I kept a careful count at first, but I stopped keeping track long ago--after I sold my 534th mining permit. It is enough to know that thousands of miners throughout highsec have purchased permits. In time, they all will... Unless they biomass first, of course.

    Little Nitetime Video sat on her tuffet
    With her legs open wide.
    Down came a spider
    Looked right inside her

      I do have to give you some credit for the originality of your trolling though (Credit given where credit is due).

    2. Compliments are always appreciated. However, your definition of tears and my definition of tears seem to be polar opposites.

  2. And in today's news:

    A man who was under 24-hour surveillance by CONCORD anti-terrorism investigators was shot dead today after he lunged at faction police and CONCORD officers outside a pharmacy, authorities said. An anonymous law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation said the man had been making threats against law enforcement, miners, and industrialists.

    CONCORD's announcer guy said members of CONCORD's D.E.D approached Asia Leigh this morning about "terrorist-related information" they had received when she went at officers with a large military-style knife. Officers repeatedly ordered Asia to drop the knife but charged officers. D.E.D. agents and Caldari faction police opened up on Asia. When the firing stopped, Asia had more holes in her than swiss cheese. Another official said this is part of a larger investigation into the activities of CODEdot and James 315 in response to numerous criminal complaints about CODEdot's extortionist mining permits as well as death threats against the citizens of New Eden.

    3. So ming settles down on a planet and starts his new job as a game warden. On the first day he finds -=M=- fishing, and as proof -=M=- has a bucket of fish.
      "Show me your fishing permit!" he screams at -=M=-.
      -=M=- calmly replies he has none.
      Ming laughs "So then i caught you fishing without a permit! Your under arrest!" -=M=- says "Wait, i am not fishing, these are my fish from home. Once a day i bring them out to this river, let them loose, and after some time whistle and they jump back into this bucket"
      Ming laughs and says "What? Proof?"
      -=M=- dumps out the bucket of fish into the river, fills it back with water and then waits a few moments.
      Ming gets upset at the delay and says "Well?"
      -=M=- Says "Well what?"
      Ming getting more upset says "Well, call your fish!"
      -=M=- Smiles at him and says "What fish?"

    CODE. Declares War Against Swordmasters of New Eden
    From: CONCORD
    Sent: 2015.06.03 03:23

    CODE. has declared war on Swordmasters of New Eden.
    Within 24 hours fighting can legally occur between those involved. If war is due to a corporation at war joining or leaving an alliance, then the war starts immediately instead.

      Swordmasters of New Eden surrenders to CODE.

      The war between Swordmasters of New Eden and CODE. is coming to an end. Swordmasters of New Eden has surrendered to CODE.. The war will be declared as being over after approximately 24 hours and CODE. will be unable to declare war on Swordmasters of New Eden for the next 2 weeks.

    5. Veers proves once again that the War Dec mechanic is massively broken... There should be at least some consequence for dodging a war dec other then the 1m isk fee for reforming a corp.

    6. Strange, i recall that when james used to do this same thing it was "part of the game and working just like its supposed to"

    7. Still doesn't mean that it's not broken and needs to be fixed >.>

    8. James dodged wars to to show just how silly the mechanic was.

    9. That was more than 2 years ago, and we used to explain this to bears on the forums. Nothing has been done about wardec evasion.

    11. Please.... You can't sit here and tell me that being able to drop corp and reform 5 minutes later at a whooping cost of 1 million isk to dodge a war dec isn't OP.

      Please troll elsewhere...

    15. Hey, quoting Veers and showing what a hypocrite he is counts as real-life torture and harassment! Veers would know after all, he's a powerful lawyer in real life. Asking questions about why a powerful real-life lawyer would feel the need to (or even be able to) run incursions for 10 hours at a stretch to plex his account is also real-life torture and harassment.

    18. You guys are all wrong. James never dodged a war in his life. You have to change the way you look at things. Really, all you're trying to say is that James 315 is undefeated in war!

      Are you surprised? I'm not. How could anyone defeat the saviour?

  4. It would be nice to know how Long it took Liek to sell the 200 Permits. Besides that. Good work. Proper salesmen are hard to find. :D

  5. My career in the name of James 315 started at the end of August 2014, permit #100 was reached around Dec14 or Jan15. There was a minor post on here, but I do not have it at hand...
    At #216, currently ;-)

    1. 200 Permits in less than a year? Wow. And just out of curiosity: How many of them violated the CODE within the next 60 minutes? ;)

    2. #217 now. Sraoshra Dallocort got his permit: http://i.imgur.com/QYrMyJe.png

      Actually, most lasted far longer than 60minutes. Yet, sure, many will not reach the one-year mark they paid for, but we will keep on educating!

  7. Very inspiring story. I hope to do that well myself. I'm a newbro to code, looking to sign up with NOL. Ganked my first miner last night!

    I've got a question that is a bit off-topic. I would like to be a part of the freighter operations. I am East Coast USA and it always seems that the ganks go down an hour or so after I log off. Does Code operate mostly in a different time zone?

    Thanks!

  10. Aside from this post that explains the terms; I think we should boycott BM's posts. All CODE. members avoid responding to or acknowledging BM's posts and responses. Just pretend like whatever BM posted does not exist on the forum.

    BM is a fail troll and should be ignored as such. I believe most of us are already ignoring him/her/it; but we should band together and boycott this failure.

  12. Well, if the AG crowd desperately wants to poke a hole in Liek`s Killboard, they could point out that the amount of lost Destroyers exceeds the total of killed Barges / Exhumers / Industrials by roughly 150. ;)

    But for an Indu player this Killboard is pure pr0n. 1000 destroyed Barges equal roughly 2.3 BILLION units of Minerals that need to get replaced. Suddenly I feel warm and fuzzy inside when I think about the profits. :D

    1. I am pretty sure the isk value of the catalysts that were loss is minimal compared to the Barges/Exhumers and Industrials.

      I love feeling warm and fuzzy when seeing another elite pvper pvp miners :)

      Delete
    2. Please note that you would need to add the stats of "Plasma Death" (my alt- https://zkillboard.com/character/94919860/stats/ ) even - so it would sum up to 2850 destroyers by now.

      I always try to bring appropriate force, and in order to provide a scram AND optimal pod removal capabilities, I often bring two ships (often downgrading armament to T1) even for a retriever. Exhumers deserve two catalysts for obvious reasons.

      I do not mind the occasional fail - after all, I am but a mere [immortal] human (with a mission, yet), but the overall success rate looks high enough to claim an overall "winning" tendency, as appropriate for the CODE, right?

      Delete
    3. Hey, my post was not meant as criticism or something like that. EVE is 50% building ships and 50% blowing ships up. And as long as enough players are doing their thing on each side of the playing field, the ball keeps rolling. And, to be quite honest with you, I think there should get more ships blown up these days. But I am not interested in PvP, so you have to work more. :)

  13. What highsec needs is another concord mechanic to stop gankers before they start. I suggest that any -10.0 pilot flying in highsec can not use the "warp to" function. Think about it, in real life, which is 100% like this game (thus the two are totally comparable) criminals are barred from leaving jail. In Eve criminals should be barred from doing anything.
