The Impostor Tweets


EVE has a long history of faux James 315s. We last reviewed the rogues gallery of impostors two years ago.


Some were mere references...


Most were low-quality...


And there were those, like this impersonator of Currin Trading, that had a lot of effort put into them--even creating fake New Order corps. Some of those listed above have since been deleted for inactivity.


...But new ones have popped up in their place.


What is their purpose? Only their creators know for certain.


On the other hand, the occasional impostor exists as a platform for broadcasting the rebel message.


If the rebel message were worthwhile, however, they wouldn't need to rely on my great fame. Clearly, rebels cannot compete in the marketplace of ideas. The Code retains its monopoly there.


What's this? The false James 315s have made their way to social media. Appearances to the contrary, this Twitter account, @theonlyJames315, is not the James 315 you're looking for.


It even includes an "ALWAYS" logo which bears a resemblance to the one used in CODE.'s alliance logo submission.


To make the illusion even more convincing, this false James 315 tweets things you might expect to hear from me.


For what reason was this Twitter account created? Is it an Anti-Ganker playing the long con? The pet project of a rogue Agent? Has the Code become sentient, no longer content to spread its message through human vessels? We may never know.

  1. Funny how the stupid impersonation clause doesn't apply to any of these accounts, ain't it?

  2. Even to a total moron its clear that all those other james 315's are not the original one.
    The impersonation clause comes into effect not when a name is similar, even if its very close, but rather when someone using a name claims to be the original char (either in conversations or in local chat).
    Examples:
    Char name: James 3I5, says nothing in chats or local to imply he is the original = ok.
    Char name: Billybob, Constantly says on local, "Im the alt of James 315" = Ban

  5. I am the real James 315. I send my minions out to suicide gank newbros. I also send them out to blow up Black and Jewish babies who are still sucking on their mama's tit. Unbeknownst to code, I am also a planner for The Islamic Jihad Against America. I go around in Africa and have my minions attack schools to kidnap girls so they can be married to myself and my comrades at 12 years of age.

    Additionally, my glowing ass rockets around the Kino system, fed by the corpses that my agents fish out from space after ganking an innocent player's pod for some lame excuse. So beleive my words as I am the True James 315, the buffoon of highsec.

    1. Miner/FakeJames/Kalynn... Please calm down.


      AG "community": is this who you truly want to represent your cause? A fake fail troll who uses real life atrocities in order to attempt to affect an Internet spaceship video game?

    2. You're the one who needs to calm down. You're just pissed off because I'm awesome and you are lame. I'm in effect, and you're not. And you are also probably pissed off because you just found out that I turned your mother out.

      So, my brainwashed minions, bask in the glory of the awesomeness of your saviour: Me, James 315, the baffoon of highsec. Go forth and bring me a corpse today.

    3. This has butt hurt miner written all over it. Making light of real life events to belittle a video game group is sad but unfortunately right up his alley.

    4. Yeah, guys, this is Butthurt Miner with the fake James 315 account. You can tell because "glowing ass" is one of Butthurt Miner's signature lines.

      And anyone that says "I am the true James 315" is not the true James 315.

    8. Didn't fool you guys huh? Time to come up with a new modus operandi then.. Anyways Alana, it's interesting that you bring up Firefly....

      That was actually a pretty cool sci-fi show. I wish they made more of them. So I guess CCP's tribute to Firefly is the moa.

  11. Everyone wants to be the savior of highsec. Too bad only one of them has managed to pull it off.

    Great job in 2015, James 315. The New Order ALWAYS wins.
