Naoki Skulltulla > I'm trying to get my complex buddy to set up cap and shield trans on both of our ships... only problem is, he armor tanks... and by tanks I mean.. warps out every 18 seconds to rep and come back...Naoki Skulltulla and Mihai Albescu met up in the Help channel and joined a private convo. Naoki was looking for a way to help her corpmate perform PvE. Currently, said corpmate's methods were embarrassingly ineffective.
Naoki Skulltulla > I need a second pilot... even if that second pilot is me....
Mihai Albescu > Augoror or Exequror would be a better choice if DPS runs an armor tank
Naoki Skulltulla > Oh, he runs an amarr maurader. Not sure what it's called
Mihai Albescu > he has to warp out even with a Paladin? He's doing it wrong
Naoki Skulltulla > he forgets to rep until he hits hull and by then He's being blapping so much he's out of cap and can't repMihai diagnosed the corpmate with an acute case of bot-aspirancy. The prescription was a good gank.
Naoki Skulltulla > his ship have 21 seconds of cap...
Mihai Albescu > Where does he run, sounds like somebody is in dire need of a ganking
Naoki Skulltulla > all over amarr space.
Naoki Skulltulla > he refuses to go through nyarja
Mihai Albescu > Smart man, he should avoid Niarja and Uedama or buy a CODE. permitAs usually happens when two EVE players discuss something, the conversation turned to the New Order. We're the main thing happening in EVE today.
Mihai Albescu > CODE. honors their permits if he doesn't fly ridiculous bling and violate the Code by autopiloting
Naoki Skulltulla > I've been attacked by code 17 times for autopiloting
Naoki Skulltulla > Every time I came back with a drink at full health 6 systems over lol
Mihai Albescu > I'll be honest with you, I think he's a confirmed Goofus. Look for a better corpmateThe situation in Naoki's corp was dire. Sadly, the carebear CEO's behavior was all too typical.
Naoki Skulltulla > He's my CEO :/
Mihai Albescu > RUN!
Mihai Albescu > Probably subsidizing his loses with real money and gambling on iwantisk
Naoki Skulltulla > lol, nah, I know the guy personally, he has no money
Naoki Skulltulla > I had to pay for his account a few times
Naoki Skulltulla > he lost a T3 in a 5/10It turned out that Mihai was actually an Agent. This was a great opportunity for Naoki to extricate herself from a bad situation and join CODE.
Naoki Skulltulla > not sure how... but I was there
Mihai Albescu > I'm a permitholder and my alt is in CODE. It's a great diversion teaching hisec carebears about the game mechanics
Naoki Skulltulla > yeah... I don't pay extortion money, even in video games :) but, that's ok. At least now I know to run if I see you lol
Mihai Albescu > You do understand that you are flying in James 315's territory? It's not extortion if we claim the space.Unfortunately, Naoki's mind had been poisoned by anti-Code propaganda, or, judging by her use of a Miner Bingo quote, possibly by sheer carebear instinct. Mihai set her straight.
Mihai Albescu > You pay dues to the controlling alliance in lowsec, hisec, wormholes, and that's not extortion
Mihai Albescu > Rid yourself of the notion that hisec is free, and just look at the killboard. CODE. has destroyed 27 Trillion ISK worth of property of violators in their space. If that's not control I don't know what is.
Mihai Albescu > The primary goal of the New Order is to rid hisec of bots and people who act like bots who destroy the economy by mining without effort. The best way to distinguish between bots and players is a permit in the bio.A classic symptom of bot-aspirancy: The inability to understand or appreciate emergent content. If something isn't within the bounds of pre-programmed gameplay, they just don't get it.
Naoki Skulltulla > The best way to determine bots from non-bots is to private convo.... I know money talks, but that's kind of a self-fulfilling detriment to everyone to just assume if they haven't payed they are cheating
Naoki Skulltulla > also
Naoki Skulltulla > not CCP sanctioned
Mihai Albescu > CCP sanctions player-generated content.Mihai and Naoki had been having a nice, normal conversation. Little did Mihai realize that Naoki was a rebel all along! And things had been going so well.
Mihai Albescu > The game mechanic does not allow sov in hisec, so we established de-facto sov with permits and catalysts.
Naoki Skulltulla > Which means, you guys planted the first flag and say "Mine" without any real claim and extort everyone who doesn't agree with you
Naoki Skulltulla > That's essentially what cyber terrorists do
Naoki Skulltulla > You can't write laws for land you don't own.Strange theories about the New Order and our purpose waft across highsec. Truth is the only antidote. All our Agents come equipped with it.
Mihai Albescu > That's funny. They do in wormholes. James wrote the law, and to quote Frank Herbert, "The people who can destroy a thing, they control it."
Naoki Skulltulla > Teh majority of the reason CODE exiss, is because peop,le are lazy. Piss in the wrong peron's cheerios.... Well... Infinite monkey Theorum was made for a reason...
Naoki Skulltulla > I'll blow up one day, it'll happen, but not likely in highsecAnother reason our Agents win every argument: They know what a carebear is going to say even before the carebear does.
Mihai Albescu > It'll happen, and you'll regret not buying the best insurance plan around, or you'll leave hisec. The New Order always wins, you know :)
Naoki Skulltulla > Maybe, but, like I said, one day, you guys are going to attack the wrong person, there will lots of time dilation and frustration to follow
Mihai Albescu > Haha, Carebears have been saying that since we started. "Someone else" never materializes.
Naoki Skulltulla > feel like I'm signing my death warrant lol
Naoki Skulltulla > Again, you can't just make up what a crime is, but, as long as it gets CODE hard to think they have some measure of control over the people in a game who have lives that don't cosist of cheeto dust and pizza, more power to themThe Code shines like a bright light. You might think someone is a rational, reasonable person. But once you get them talking about the Code, it's amazing how their true colors are revealed.
Naoki Skulltulla > Assaulting people in a video game is not a track record of anything more than cyber bullying. I know CCP won't put a stop to it, but that's ok. But I can, by taking my money elsewhere along with everyone else who gets fed up with it, and then, good luck
Naoki Skulltulla > you'll have the whole game to yourselves, and I'll still hav entertainment for my dime
Mihai Albescu > Shooting spaceships in a game about shooting spaceships is not assault, as much as you would wish.Naoki confessed that the idea of Code-compliance made her want to quit the game. Being affected by other players' actions in an MMO made her uncomfortable.
Naoki Skulltulla > The game is sandbox, it's not about anything in particular
Mihai Albescu > Then you admit it is a sandbox for player-generated content.
Naoki Skulltulla > CODE is generating content, it's pissing off new players and running them off from the game
Mihai Albescu > The New Order is about ridding hisec of scummy bots and bot aspirants with false ideals.The name of James 315 is another good litmus test to use. Good people become happy when they think about me. Bad people prepare to Ctrl+Q at the mention of my name.
Naoki Skulltulla > defined by who?
Mihai Albescu > Our savior James 315
Naoki Skulltulla > Oh, so now it's a religion? In that case, yeah, I'm definitely going to have to avoid that. Well.. that actually makes sense... self purported sense of worth and value, little to nothing to show for it.. yeah,very religion-y
Naoki Skulltulla > :/ I give up... just wanted a game to have fun in. Guess I'll go play every other game in existence.... One's where, the developers won't tolerate this nonsense because it's bad for business.
Naoki Skulltulla > If you can't see that zealotrous behanvior, and strict adherence to the imagination of a man or small group of men is the same shit that destroyed thousands of empires over the course of history, then, I don't think you can understand my stance.Mihai and Naoki had a productive little chat. Even though Naoki had only been interested in techniques for running complexes, she'd learned a great deal about highsec and EVE. Whether they appreciate it or not, knowledge always brings a carebear one step closer to compliance.
Naoki Skulltulla > Bu then again
Naoki Skulltulla > You aren't trying to
Naoki Skulltulla > Religious people never do
Naoki Skulltulla > Oh well, I needed more free time anyways
