The Making of a Legend: The loyalanon Story, Part 4

Previously, on MinerBumping... In Part 3, loyalanon stepped up to take leadership of CODE. after the sudden departure of xxBLACK SKULLxx 929. Ironically, both Agents had originally been anti-Code gankers whose minds were changed after they investigated the Code more thoroughly. loyalanon's ascension came not a moment too soon: During the period of nullsec peace following B-R5, CODE. was destined to become the most controversial and most talked-about alliance in EVE. loyalanon's story continues, in his own words.

We jumped on the test server and instead of actually preparing for the Alliance Tournament and doing doctrines, we would undock freighters and sit there and blow them up with different ships. We honed our ganking skills in the test server, working out how many Catalysts we needed for triple-bulkheaded freighters, how many Taloses we needed to gank jump freighters, etc., etc.

About a week to 10 days before Alliance Tournament was scheduled to begin, Khoda Khan went MIA and we never heard from him again for months. The day the Alliance Tournament was set to begin, I went out with my family IRL, and came back to floods of tears about why we didn't join in the AT.


As far as I am aware, we had given CCP another reason to place CODE. under the microscope, and I believe this was the stepping stone to getting approval to ban multiple CODE.-affiliated pilots. I also believe that we had succeeded in my goal I outlined in part 1, and that was to become even more hated then we already were. When you have nothing to lose, why does it matter if more people hate you?


I had given a ton of carebears more reason to hate us than ever before. A lot of carebears said this was the end of CODE. A lot of people to this day, 2 years later, still talk about Alliance Tournament and CODE.'s no-show in it. These same carebears talking about how CODE. didn't show up, wouldn't be able to tell you the teams that participated or the winners without using Google. We were immortalised in the Alliance Tournament and will forever be associated with the Alliance Tournament. As far as I am concerned, we had succeeded in forever making the CODE. Alliance more well-known then we already were. Op Success.


The Greatest Ganker in Eve.

The greatest ganker in Eve, in my eyes, is the legendary D400, who was banned wrongfully in the September Banwaves (which I will cover next).

Even to this day, besides myself and holdmybeer, he is still ranked 3rd in the CODE. alliance and he has been banned for 2 and a half years.


I have never met another player in all my time in Eve besides Zula Terra and PV Rock (both TCE members :)) who are as great a player as he is. If D400 was still active, his character would have surpassed me in kills and isk destroyed.

I salute to him as a player, a friend, and a brother. When he was banned, something inside of me changed in regards to Eve and would forever shape the course of myself as a player and the Alliance as a whole.


The Banwaves.

September the 9th (September 10th EVEtime -Ed) I was camping in lowsec (inb4 CODE. doesn't go to lowsec) with the aforementioned D400 when suddenly he logged out on all his characters due to what we thought was a socket close.

He tried to log back in and was surprised to see that he had been banned with no reason given. Within hours, CCP Falcon had linked this article regarding the real life harassment of other players.


To this day, there has been no event or "incident" identified that warranted the banhammer falling, however in my opinion due to our winning performance in the Alliance Tournament, CCP believed we had made a fool out of them, and something needed to be done in retribution. That retribution cost 50-100 player accounts of people who had done nothing wrong. Carebears will roll their eyes and point out "real life harassment" with most quoting what CCP Falcon had said above. However, they cannot link to any concrete examples of real life harassment that happened post the Sohkar Bonus Room incident.

I petitioned CCP on my friends' behalf but was told they would not discuss this any further. I tried again and even vouched that if D400 was involved in any form of real life harassment then I would be banned along with him. This was turned down as well, and any future petitions asking for further information was shut down almost immediately.

John E Normus, Capt Starfox, and myself discussed quitting over it and what we should do. There was confusion in the alliance ranks and everyone was terrified of getting banned. We drew conclusions and hypothesised about why people were banned, and if we were gonna get banned with no real answers forthcoming.

I mailed James 315 on the side and from the outcome of the response, I knew what I had to do. I had to burn highsec to the ground, and if you didn't know who we were yet, you would definitely know after I was done.

To be continued...

  2. "however in my opinion due to our winning performance in the Alliance Tournament, CCP believed we had made a fool out of them, and something needed to be done in retribution. That retribution cost 50-100 player accounts of people who had done nothing wrong."

    - This is one of spaces in the CHODE. ban-hammer bingo card.

    "However, they cannot link to any concrete examples of real life harassment that happened post the Sohkar Bonus Room incident."

    - So just once was ok according to CHODE. slave loyalanon. And Jamey accuses "carebears" of being delusional.......

    Aww poor babies got upset, did you go talk to your mommies?

    "from the outcome of the response, I knew what I had to do. I had to burn highsec to the ground"

    So after you were done crying, you got angry and wanted revenge? Seems like the actions of a 10 year old. Maybe you should go pick up a game geared for younger audiences. :)

      You're taking this very seriously... wanna jump on TS and have a chat?

    5. it's cute how you code tards try to defend yourself by calling anyone not in your alliance a carebear and saying anything they say is tears.

      Nice comebacks kids, now get off mommy's computer, she probably has a porn show to shoot to make some money.

    7. @John XIII

      It doesn't matter if I have contracting trained to 5 and we have a TS conversation every day from now until the end of EVE. I am not stupid like most other people and would NEVER contract anything to you. Not even a single piece of tritanium. You can offer me contracts all you want, I'm smart enough to read them before accepting.

      Oh was you going to threaten me with attacks or war decs if I don't contract crap to you? Go right ahead, I live in nullsec bro I can be attacked at any time anyway.

      Nice try though bro

  5. The intense tears from the poor bears over these posts show how terrified they are of code!

  6. If I was a gambler I'd say it was the Sokhar incident that kicked off the bannings. Sokhar himself was an odious, racist pig and quite rightly trolled. That sort of thing has been going on for years without incident, especially from bed wetting carebears threatening to put axes into peoples' heads.

    However, his wife was clearly upset. AFAIK she's not an Eve player, so it could be argued that a member of the public was "harrassed" by the goings on in Eve. Plus, the whole shebang was recorded and published. Bad press for CCP!

    1. I'm feeling too lazy to dig up the MB post, but IIRC the Sokhar thing happened many months before the bans. Ripard made it his pet cause.

  7. For the conspiracy minded,look at how CCP reacted when Warlords of the Deep and The Camel Empire colluded to rig and win AT XIII. For the crime of actually cheating to win the darn thing (successfully), the leader of the WOD team was banned from Tournament play, the leader of The Camel Empire was banned for one year from the AT and the alliances received... nothing, including the OTHER players on the cheating teams. A clear record as far as CCP is concerned. So, don't show up... full Alliance banz4evar! Cheat to win... a couple guys get sorta banned. Yeah, CCP has a thing for us.

    1. Bong, don't forget Erotica1. Greedy morons get scammed, cry on forums, witch hunt ensues via scumbag Ripard Teg, 'No Reason Needed' bans appear.

      Some assholes at Fanfest actually break the law (yes, vandalism is illegal in Iceland...), all is forgiven.

      Fuck CCP.

    2. E1 got what he deserved because he took the bonus room thing way too far. When Sohkar had his meltdown, E1 should have stopped it, but he didn't. This was in March 2014. In September, I know a bunch of people got banned. I assume it was also for bonus room activities, but nobody was told anything, AFAIK.

      As for the vandalism in Iceland (the EvE monument), I was pretty upset about that. The names of the players that are on that monument deserve to be there. The individuals responsible should have to pay to have that repaired, or did they? I haven't really heard much more about it.

    3. CCP has never been good at maintaining any sort of consistency in disciplining bad behaviour. This is a development company that repeatedly fails to demonstrate any semblance of competency in releasing quality product (much less any product at all - WoD lol).

  12. Well, Jimmy Boy 315, the anal dwelling butt monkey of Highsec who's anal sphincter is a black hole when he doesn't get corpses to eat, I should thank you for posting this series of articles. A look into the mind of Loyalamoron (aka Wolf SoSplatO), a known sociopath.

    So Wolf, tell me, was it your plan all along to not participate in AT2014 and possibly get the CODEdot alliance permanently banned from it, just to make the CODEdot alliance universally known throughout the community?

    An entertaining read to say the least.

    BM.

  16. Those people were not banned. Their Eve playing permit was revoked for harassment-aspirant behaviour.

    The constant hero worshipping of proven EULA offenders on this site is indication enough that CODE does not intend to abide by the EULA.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Perhaps you would point out which part of the EULA they broke? You probably will be as unable to do so as CCP was. In Erotica1's case, its hard to pin a harrassment charge when the "victim" willingly engaged in the TS chat. And in the large banning, well, nobody knows why they were banned. CCP wouldn't say and the banned players didn't have a clue or warning of any kind. Nobody ever proved anything because CCP never asserted any wrongdoing. Just banned.
