Yoshiyo Solette > You attack defenseless shipsIn a private convo, Yoshiyo admitted that he simply appointed a random newbie as the new CEO before he left. He didn't care about what happened to the corp. It soon became clear that the replacement CEO didn't want to lead the corp. Luckily, someone did.

Yoshiyo Solette > Shut the fuck up
Yoshiyo Solette > You're so fucking dumb nigger
Wendy Valentino no longer identified with the anti-ganking ideology. She'd seen, with her own two eyes, the truth about carebears. Wendy persuaded the replacement CEO to hand her the corporation. She claimed it for the Code.
As the first order of business, Wendy let the entire corp know what had happened--and why.
Unlike the grasping, greedy carebear CEO who created the corp, Wendy actually cared about what happened to the corp members. She wanted them to enjoy EVE. What a concept!
Having fulfilled her objectives, Wendy declared victory and prepared to kick everyone from the corp the next day.
It didn't take long for Wendy's handiwork to become known to the general public. Tears were had. But the thread author wasn't Yoshiyo.
The corp's members were scattered to the winds, and they immediately began applying to new corporations. Many corps require API background checks, giving recruiters access to the applicant's EVEmails. One such recruiter discovered Wendy's EVEmail in the applicant's inbox. The recruiter rolled a forum alt and complained bitterly about the treatment the applicant's former corp endured at the hands of CODE.
This what your glorious code is doing, this is what your pathetic James315 is doing. Well done CCP, you have created a disgusting theme where these people exists to make people quit.Now the good people of EVE-O had a choice. Would they join in the Code-bashing, or would they support emergent gameplay?
Interestingly, EVE players were not sympathetic to the anti-Code crusade this time. The forum alt was forced to defend her position. Then came Wendy Valentino's reply:
In truth, this infiltration was trivial. I just used these folks insecurity against them, and made them think I was the best option. The fact that it happened so fast was something of a fluke. They did exactly what I wanted, but they did it so fast I almost could not keep up. It was a fail cascade of people making decisions based on fear, and looking out for number one. They where disorganized, and not all all friends. They could not have known better because none of them collaborated.In a stunning turn of events, EVE-O voiced its approval. And this wasn't in the Crime & Punishment subforum, either!
Leadership should not be handed out like candy. Everyone can not be a leader. Most are very bad at it. It takes a selflessness, and ruthlessness that very few people have together. Most can only pull off one of those things at a time. Great leaders are few and far between, and people flock to them in droves.
You have to remember that this is a game of war. Some people die at the front lines, some people support the people on the front lines, and there are many casualties in the war. From the big nullsec alliances waging sov warfare, to the merc corps doing hisec wardecs, and even to the suicide gankers making people cry, We are all waging a war. Sometimes that means getting bloody right away, and sometimes it takes lies and manipulation to tear your enemies to shreds. The fact of the matter is that this is a war game. And people love it. All is fair in love and war.
Some people call this greifing. Some people call it a mercy killing. Personally I think of it as a fight. I just fought with my mind, instead of my guns. But then again I like to play with my food before I eat it. Different strokes for different folks.
Even self-identified highsec carebear CSM member Mike Azariah sided with the New Order on this one. The times, they are a-changin'.
Zawaka Inazuma > o/Zawaka and Wendy managed to catch up with Yoshiyo. He claimed to have known Wendy was a spy all along. He only wanted to know why. Could the greedy carebear be persuaded to get in on the New Order's cultural victory too?
Wendy Valentino > 0/
Yoshiyo Solette > So, I knew you were a spy in Assiettes.
Yoshiyo Solette > Why do y'all do it?
