Highsec Miner Grab Bag #88
An EVEmail like that can only mean one thing... It's time for yet another edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
Another reason ignorance of the Code is no excuse: Miners believe what they want to believe. When told of the Code, how many miners say, "Oh, in that case, here's your 10 mil"?
Instead, they usually justify their original resistance with some new excuse.
The Quine must have sent this EVEmail to Agent Sophia Soprano by mistake; our Agents are model citizens of highsec.
Chupa Onil threatened to cut off Tisiphone Dira's ear. In fairness, there was probably something lost in translation, as is often the case when Russian miners send messages to our Agents. But I'm not sure why Russian EVEmails always gets mistranslated into something violent.
Orca pilot BELLZYBUB was totally unimpressed when he found himself bumped away from the gate by Agent Spryt3. He felt he was in no danger at all.
BELLZYBUB noticed that there were very few flashy reds in local. In fact, he only saw one. What possible difference could one ganker make?
Oops! He forgot about hyperdunkers.
I'm the Saviour of Highsec. Always nice to meet a fellow EVE player.
There is so much misinformation out there about bumping mechanics. You'd think freighter pilots would've learned something from the debate about miner bumping.
How many freighters must the New Order destroy? As many as it takes. The question, carebears, is how many freighters must you lose?
On occasion, a miner will send multiple EVEmails without actually waiting to receive a reply from our Agent...
All this over a Retriever? I'd hate to see what a miner would say if he lost a Venture.
An Australian miner protested against the Code, drawing a comparison to the Eureka Stockade instead of something about Hitler or ISIS. Points for creativity. But it almost makes me wonder why this is the first time a miner tried invoking something from history that involved actual miners.
Despite only being three weeks into the game, Valerian Valtos had already heard plenty of stories about the Code. (So much for all those 5-year veterans who claim ignorance!) The experience renewed Valerian's interest in the game. More anecdotal evidence to support CCP's study about ganking improving player retention. The New Order is really extending EVE's lifespan.
