Many people wonder what a New Order Agent's EVEmail inbox looks like. Is it completely filled with tears, rage, real-life death threats, etc.? No, not completely.
...Because the fact is, highsec is populated by countless supporters of the New Order. Most people are reluctant to embrace change, but the smartest know a good deal when they see one. And the Code is the best deal of them all.
Knackered Old Goat has been playing EVE on different characters for several years. Like so many other EVE players, he lacked guidance. He fell into a pattern of grinding isk, which is ultimately unfulfilling.
Even those who seek PvP may run into difficulty. This is especially true when PvE'ers swarm highsec due to the risk/reward imbalance, rather than providing the base of the PvP food chain elsewhere. The recent failure of nullsec alliances, some of whom relocated to lowsec, has breathed new life into that area. Still, EVE struggles.
CCP has spent years working on the "new player experience". They've bestowed countless advantages upon the newbies. But the newbies leave anyway. Something is missing. The new players can't be retained.
...Unless a thing happens.
The Code is the missing ingredient. It has given countless players a reason to play the game. And every Agent, being imbued with the power of the Code, is an inspiration. Who wouldn't want what the Agent possesses? They're genuine EVE celebrities wherever they go.
The mere presence of an Agent in local rescued Knackered Old Goat from a dismal life of carebearism. Empowered by his New Order friends, he helped destroy a Mackinaw.
It's incredible to think how many players' fates have been altered merely by looking at Agents' bios. They are not only Agents of the New Order; they're Agents of destiny.
CCP, take note. The New Order improves player retention and encourages players to get multiple accounts! And to think, so many theme park advocates have spent all these years encouraging CCP to remove highsec aggression.
Some say that ganking is too easy. Such critics all share one thing in common: They've never successfully executed a suicide gank themselves. When those who support nerfs start dunking freighters, maybe we'll have a reason to listen.
A chance encounter with a New Order Agent made all the difference. The carebear was transformed into something special. Something powerful. Something to be feared, respected, and obeyed by his former peers in the asteroid belts.
The future of highsec--and everyone who resides there--is in good hands. Namely, ours. After all, we've earned it, haven't we? We create the content.
