The Agents of the New Order know how to party--and how to celebrate:
Super Perforator hit all the right notes with a two-year anniversary celebration built around the purchase of an additional 2,315 shares. It sent us over the 1 trillion 27 billion and 1 trillion 28 billion isk marks and earned Super Perforator a Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
New Order watchers may have reason to speculate that the purchase was partly motivated by a friendly rivalry with fellow shareholder Bing Bangboom. When shareholders compete, everyone wins--except for the bot-aspirants and rebels, who continuously fail nonstop daily.
Sasha Nemtsov is back, this time diving all the way to a MinerBumping post from more than three years ago. (Has it been that long?) The topic of the post was the notorious Ripard Teg's CSM campaign. As Sasha articulates in his intro, the subject matter remains just as relevant today.
You can read the original MinerBumping post here. Sasha also points out in his intro that the post's insights have been further validated by events that occurred in the years following its publication. And make sure to stick around for Sasha's epilogue.
One final point of note. Different sections of the recording are separated by a playful little musical flourish. It's delightful. It reminds us that EVE is a game--a spaceship combat game. It's meant to be fun place to shoot at spaceships, not a venue for sending real-life death threats. Nor is it reasonable to demand nerfs to spaceship combat in favor of AFK risk-free isk grinding. Indeed, a nerf to highsec aggression is actually just a nerf to fun. What sort of person would want to nerf fun?
