When new players begin looking deeply into EVE's fascinating, one-of-a-kind virtual economy, among the first questions they ask is, "Why do people purchase shares of New Order stock?"
Sometimes "just because" is a good enough answer.
On other occasions, there's a specific reason for the purchase.
As with similar incidents, the unexplained permabans of Agents loyalanon and 412nv Yaken have inspired New Order stock purchases. Droit Minier purchased 3,153 shares of New Order stock on behalf of Permabanned Heroes of the Code. The purchase sent us over the 1.014, 1.015, 1.016, and 1.017 trillion isk marks and prompted a Quadruple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
Elite Harvester purchased 1,000 more shares of New Order stock and transferred his massive holdings to Permabanned Heroes of the Code. Obviously, the purchase sent us over the 1 trillion 18 billion isk mark and earned him a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. Shaking the business world is the news that we have a new biggest shareholder: Permabanned Heroes of the Code, with 180,305 shares, overtook PV Rock for the #1 spot.
Meanwhile, additional purchases went on. ST0NER SMURF increased his holdings by 315 shares, sending us over the 1 trillion 19 billion isk mark and earning him a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
Black Pedro, likewise, purchased an additional 315 shares. His purchase sent us over the 1 trillion 20 billion isk mark and earned him a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
What a week!
Agent Sasha Nemtsov has returned to his microphone. This time, with a twist.
Sasha has produced a new, improved, digitally remastered reading of the Code, perfect for all you people out there who learn best by hearing. It doesn't just contain his wonderful voice reading the wonderful Code, though--it also contains music, concluding with The Code Anthem, composed by Sasha himself.
But wait, there's more! Sasha wants everyone at home to sing along, so for the chorus of the Anthem, he has made sheet music available: The Code Chorus (sheet music with lyrics) and The Code Chorus (lyrics only).
What a talent. This is what emergent content looks like, people.
