Some Agents of the New Order have such a presence that the mere appearance of their name in local is enough to stimulate compliance. And if not compliance, then at least fear or some other kind of activity. Bing Bangboom is one of those Agents.
Bing Bangboom > Yes, any highsec system is covered by a permitWhen Bing enters local, the system springs to life, reacting as though a rock star has walked onto the stage.
Bing Bangboom > great value... for any of you economists.
ComedianII > Why it would be silly to lose a ship to save only 10M
Zed Lander > The price for a permit is 10mil, but the cost is far higher
Bing Bangboom > We fight against the bots and bot aspirants.And when Bing's not around, the locals talk about him. Unless talking or thinking about or reacting to Agents of the New Order, a highsec system is generally dead. In a very real way, the Code keeps EVE alive.
SalvaSnow > lots of agents are...racketeers?
Bing Bangboom > law enforcement
Bing Bangboom > you mispelled it.
SalvaSnow > I did. Much more fun your way
Bing Bangboom > More fun is the point of emergent gameplay
Nez Tradesman > I kinda apperiate his presence, but to be fair, you code guys keep things alive aswell, I dont mind you
EVE System > Channel changed to Local : ErentaBing Bangboom moved to the Erenta system and scanned for rebel miners. He spotted a small flock of them, consisting of Rfotq NoName and his alts. Bing's own ganker alt, Spine Ripper, didn't even need to land on grid. NoName's mining fleet preemptively evacuated the asteroid belt and docked up. It was a tremendous victory for the New Order, and it didn't even require a shot to be fired. NoName cursed his rotten luck.
Spine Ripper > no mining without a permit
Rfotq NoName > Have any shit to ask permission not necessary - fuck you
Bing Bangboom > The Code requires all miners to speak respectfully to Agents at all times.Bing gave NoName the benefit of the doubt by assuming the miner's broken English indicated he wasn't a native speaker. Based on NoName's profile and his own knowledge of the Erenta neighborhood, Bing concluded that the miner would benefit from a Russian translation of the Code.

Bing Bangboom > The Code in Russian
Rfotq NoName > I already told you where to go - fuck you . Rules write only for myself , but I am a free manOur Agent stretched out the hand of friendship. Now it was time for NoName to do likewise, by paying Bing 10 million isk.
Rfotq NoName > Who is he that would write rules for all? He's a nobody! and his name is not as - so fuck you
Bing Bangboom > I can't help but notice that you aren't mining.
Rfotq NoName > in plain language explain to me what your rules are not needed?
Bing Bangboom > I provided it to you in Russian... have you read it?
Rfotq NoName > Friend you do not confuse the Russian and Finno-Ugric languageUnfortunately, we don't yet have a Finno-Ugric translation of the Code. Maybe NoName could have paid for a permit, joined the Order, and written one for us. Then he could've helped himself and his fellow Finno-Ugrics. But NoName chose to be an angry, docked-up Goofus instead. What a missed opportunity for everyone.
Rfotq NoName > I read and speak only in this language
Bing Bangboom > Great. Then go to www.minerbumping.com and The Code is right at the top
Bing Bangboom > Then you will understand the rules.
Rfotq NoName > Are you stupid - apparently so bad that do not understand
Rfotq NoName > I told them, fuck all of you
Bing Bangboom > I explained it to you but I can't understand it for you.Highsec miners are bad at PvP. They only know how to shoot two things: Asteroids and the messenger.
Bing Bangboom > No mining in New Order systems without a permit.
Bing Bangboom > Easy to understand.
Rfotq NoName > Will command where there is a subordinate - then you don't have them
Bing Bangboom > Its James 315 's rule. I just enforce it.
Rfotq NoName > Bing Bangboom Itself you can? just to say that? or is it to do?NoName's mining fleet was cooling its heels in the station, but NoName's temper was only heating up.
Bing Bangboom > I'm the local Agent. There are plenty more if I need help.
Bing Bangboom > Which I don't.
Rfotq NoName > Understand - well then sorry - you said - and I said - let's goodbye
Bing Bangboom > you are leaving highsec?
Rfotq NoName > Yes , from Highsec to your house
Bing Bangboom > ah... I seeBing's Finno-Ugric was a little rusty, but he was pretty sure NoName was committing more Code violations.
Bing Bangboom > should I be worried?
Rfotq NoName > Friend remember finami need to speak respectfully
Bing Bangboom > I am always polite
Rfotq NoName > and then you come out of Finland - will give pizdyuley - then mother will not remember and will not collect
Bing Bangboom > what's pizdyuley ?Highsec miners have a language all their own. NoName was pulling the "only CCP can make rules for the game" card. Though if NoName made good on his promise to visit Bing's house, I doubt the visit would be a EULA-compliant one.
Rfotq NoName > you will not collect
Bing Bangboom > 10 million each is pretty cheap
Rfotq NoName > ratebut you to pieces Hamachi
Rfotq NoName > Bing Bangboom But who are you?
Rfotq NoName > Are you a developer from Iceland?
Bing Bangboom > I told you. I'm the local Agent for the New Order of Highsec. You were mining in our space. So, you have to follow the Code.You see that last line? That's not a thing that a miner says before buying a permit. Things were getting dangerously out of control.
Rfotq NoName > No? - then you can go fuck yourself
Bing Bangboom > back to the bad language?
Bing Bangboom > I thought we had moved past taht.
Rfotq NoName > Yeah shit I'm on everything your imagination wanted - shit and going to shit
Bing Bangboom > See, I don't mind destroying your ships but I'd rather you just buy permits and follow the Code.NoName demanded that Bing leave Erenta. Bing refused. Now both sides were entrenched, and neither showed any signs of backing down. (Aside from NoName's fleet docking up when Bing entered local, that is.)
Rfotq NoName > Get the fuck out of here
Rfotq NoName > You are no one
Bing Bangboom > I'm not leaving.
Bing Bangboom > Its my responsibility that Erenta be Code compliant and I'm not shirking my responsibility
