Highsec Miner Grab Bag #96

There's a difference between reading and understanding.

Someone didn't understand the Code. Welcome to the latest edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!

Cynics look at an EVEmail like this and think to themselves, "That James 315 jerk will never reply."

I did reply! Was it worth my time? To prove the cynics wrong, yes.

You must admit, our Agents are exceptionally good at getting confessions out of miners. Granted, miners make poor liars, but still.

Miners also make poor addicts: "I can start drinking whenever I want!"

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The CODE always wins, always, including arguments.

Case in point. This time it was Panzer Ghost who got served.

There are basically two organizations in all EVE who regularly gank freighters, and the two often work together. If the system is so "gimped" against freighters, why are so few players capable of killing them? I posed this question years ago, but the carebears have yet to come up with an answer. I guess they were too busy scheming:

Even highsec miners hate mining. No wonder they're always in such a bad mood.

Aurelius Micel wrote this essay after losing an Orca and a 900 million isk pod. According to Aurelius, he'd just returned to EVE and was on his way to lowsec. He says the gank could've been avoided if we created more signage about the Code. Blame CCP for not giving us publicity on the launch screen, I guess? He would've lost his Orca after jumping into lowsec, anyway. At least now some of his cargo will go to people who can use it.

The New Order finally came to an end this year when one of our Agents killed the wrong miner. Thanks a lot, Zopiclone!

With threats of "laser" and a rousing call to arms in local, Benevolentish dictator created the rebellion that brought highsec government to its knees.

How did Benevolentish do it? What was his brilliant plan?

Ah. I guess the New Order survived after all. False alarm.

Forgiveness only costs ten million isk. Thirty million at most. Trust me, miners, you'll sleep better.


  1. That level of sarcasm near the end was beautiful. ♥

  2. "Thanks a lot, Zopiclone!"
    I loled.

  3. antiganking is failing so hard right now

    1. It helps if you provide an example of an antiganking failure that occurred recently! I went and pulled up another, once again from only 15 minutes ago as of this post:

      When will we run out of carebears willing to push a freighter through Uedama?
