In a three-part series on MinerBumping, we learned about Wendy Valentino, the alt of an Anti-Ganker. She was curious to see if carebears truly behaved as the New Order claims they do. As you'll recall, Wendy infiltrated Essence Distribution and Mining and brought about its demise. Here are the links, if you'd like to take a trip down memory lane:
The Minting of a New Agent, Part 1
The Minting of a New Agent, Part 2
The Minting of a New Agent, Part 3
The corp takeover occurred after its CEO, Yoshiyo Solette, reacted to a wardec by absconding with the corp Orca and left all the newbies to fend for themselves. In case you didn't read the story again, this might serve to refresh your memory:
Wendy Valentino > I'm doing these people a favor and helping them get to better corps, where they will be supported, and get free stuff, just for breathingNow to find out what took place after the carebear corp was brought into Code compliance.
Wendy Valentino > Then you stole verything, so we decided to help out the people you betrayed
Yoshiyo Solette > Okay
Yoshiyo Solette > Well bye again
Yoshiyo Solette > Forgot you all are niggers
Yoshiyo Solette > You guys are such turds
Yoshiyo Solette > Ya know that
Yoshiyo Solette > You war dec mining corps
Yoshiyo Solette > Who don't fight people
Yoshiyo Solette > And this is why I can't have a corp.
Wendy, of course, learned that the New Order was right all along. She joined CODE.
Before making her allegiance to the New Order official, Wendy's actions were viewed by the carebears as quite provocative.
Sidar Joringer wrote a lengthy EVEmail to Wendy. He chastised her for enforcing the Code. For some reason, he had thought Essence Distribution and Mining had a chance for bright future under Yoshiyo's leadership.
In fact, this is typical of the carebear apologists. They think EVE benefits from protecting--to the point of invulnerability--the corps who offer the worst possible gaming experience.
Or maybe Sidar had a financial motive for his angst. With carebears, it always comes down to isk.
But a few days later, he wrote Wendy back. Sidar had a change of heart.
Indeed, a dramatic change of heart.
After thinking things over, Sidar had come to the realization that Wendy and the New Order were right to destroy the corp. He then joined Pandemic Horde, an alliance dedicated to teaching new players how to PvP.
RT Roflin, another member of Essence Distribution and Mining, also wrote Wendy. The awox was the best thing that had ever happened to him, and he knew it.
A day after leaving the carebear corp, RT had the courage and motivation to pursue what he really wanted to do in EVE.
...And as for Yoshiyo Solette, the CEO who abandoned the corp in response to the awox/wardec?
He biomassed his character and apparently quit EVE.
And so I ask you, dear reader, fair, reasonable reader...
Is awoxing highsec PvE corps good for the game?
