"I have recently joined CODE. in an attempt to make highsec a better place for everyone. So far it has been going well, with a number of miners buying permits, or finding more enjoyable activies to persue in New Eden. However there's a minority of capsuleers that object to our activities, and I'm having a hard time understanding..."Like our other Agents, Perlo is filled with compassion and pity for the Anti-Gankers. Seeking to gain a better understanding of what makes the AG crowd tick, she decided to interview one of them.
MalkePigen > what do you have to sayPerlo managed to arrange a convo with MalkePigen. You might recall MalkePigen from a MinerBumping post earlier this month.
Perlo Tissant > hi i assumed you'd have blocked me!
MalkePigen > not yet
MalkePigen > you have a problem?
Perlo Tissant > I just don't understand the anti-CODE. thing you seem to have
In that post, we saw how MalkePigen's head was filled with conspiracy theories concerning the Kusion family and CCP.
There's no question that MalkePigen feels strongly about the Anti-Ganking movement and the Code. She was the perfect person for Perlo to have a chat with, especially since she hadn't blocked Perlo (yet).
MalkePigen > all you did by trying to make high sec more dangerus is scare away all the content hereMalkePigen's main complain centered around the dramatic increase in danger that the New Order has brought to highsec. Clearly, she was not one of the denialist rebels who claim that we have no impact on the game. MalkePigen was firmly in the "CODE. single-handedly ruins the game" camp.
MalkePigen > all my fun
Perlo Tissant > Your fun is mining?
MalkePigen > and you sitting here and not in a mining ship in 0.0 makes me sadThe Anti-Ganker was convinced that our Agents make all their money by preying on highsec carebears. If she had her way, we'd all be mining in nullsec instead! That's no way to save highsec. This is why we don't put Anti-Gankers in charge.
MalkePigen > and the fact that the carebears that you shoot pays for your game time.
MalkePigen > its fucking wrong
MalkePigen > and in the process destroys small corps fun ans solo players in high sec
Perlo Tissant > But CCP did research and showed that people wo got ganked are more likely to stay playing the game/Each rebel carebear has his own little quirks. MalkePigen's special problem was a fixation on gankers who use multiple accounts. She hates the Kusions with a passion, and she strongly suspects there are still hyperdunkers prowling the trade routes.
MalkePigen > you just fucking suck
MalkePigen > hyperdunking
Perlo Tissant > they stopped that
MalkePigen > no
Perlo Tissant > CCP stopped it
MalkePigen > no
MalkePigen > you cant even play the game without exploiting all the shit you canFrom MalkePigen's point of view, the New Order is filled with EULA violators. There are cheaters everywhere. It's the only explanation she can think of for why the Anti-Gankers always fail.
MalkePigen > hiding for the consequenses
Perlo Tissant > They did stop hyperdunking - you can't board a ship in space while your a criminal any more
MalkePigen > running in pods with insta docks and alt that sell bounty for huge prize
MalkePigen > you are the canser of eve
Perlo Tissant > But people who get ganked ar emore likely to keep playing... CCP researched itLike most carebears, MalkePigen wrapped herself in the "subscription numbers" flag. Hers was a long-debunked claim--debunked by CCP itself. (Ironically, it was the pro-theme park crowd whose former CSM members insisted CCP do the study.)
MalkePigen > thats fucking bullshit
MalkePigen > more quit cos this game suck
Perlo Tissant > They did a talk at a fanfest about it
MalkePigen > lol
MalkePigen > its fucking bullshit
MalkePigen > what a stupid claim
Perlo Tissant > Arre you saying CCP lied?The more one speaks to an Anti-Ganker, the more their paradoxical views come to the surface. MalkePigen believed that CCP's study on ganking was part of a conspiracy: CCP lied to protect the gankers because ganking requires so many accounts. But earlier, MalkePigen said that ganking hurts CCP by making players leave the game. So CCP doesn't care that ganking lowers subscriptions, because ganking increases subscriptions.
MalkePigen > yes
MalkePigen > they like the amout of accounts it takes
Perlo Tissant > Why would they do that?
MalkePigen > ^^ read
Perlo Tissant > Read what? Why would CCP support something that hurts their bottom line?
MalkePigen > [22:09:27] MalkePigen > they like the amout of accounts it takes
MalkePigen > to make a fair game where there are room for all professions and noone is forced to play the game in a fixrd wayThanks to the Code, highsec has changed dramatically. MalkePigen recognized this. She saw a highsec stripped of PvE'ers. The New Order destroyed them all.
MalkePigen > where are the small corporations mining ops?
MalkePigen > the solo players mining in hulks?
MalkePigen > the mission runners in sivala?
MalkePigen > the war decs that had another reason than just "to get targets"?
Perlo Tissant > Why would you mine solo in a hulk? That's greed over sense. There are other mission systems than Sivala - Arnon has a good Sisters of EVE story you can doFor the older Anti-Gankers like MalkePigen, nostalgia is a painful indulgence. They remember the way things were before the rise of the New Order. EVE was easier back in those days. Even your parents could play the game in peace.
MalkePigen > my old dad liked that
MalkePigen > just sitting solo and mine
MalkePigen > well you got your ansver to why i do this..The convo ended the only way it could--MalkePigen blocked Perlo. Although our Agent wasn't able to make sense of MalkePigen's motives, she did learn a great deal about the way Anti-Gankers think. Rebel carebears are angry for a lot of reasons, and we can add one more to the list: They know they're on the wrong side of history.
Perlo Tissant > Not really...
MalkePigen > lol
MalkePigen > i shuld have known.. you are a codeDOT kid
MalkePigen > waste of time
