The Universal Appeal of the Code

Alliance-based killboards and other tools related to in-game mechanics make it simpler to follow what's going on in EVE. Simplification doesn't always go hand-in-hand with accuracy, however. Some things, like the Code, transcend game mechanics. Rebels and skeptics think they can avoid the influence of the New Order by setting CODE. to red or indulging in absurd fantasies of a CODE. break-up. Not so. The Code has an appeal that goes beyond corporations, alliances, factions, and coalitions.

A group of nice young Goons from the Ministry of Love came across a pair of AFK miners. This sight instantly persuaded them that the Code was right all along. They destroyed the Hulk, its pod, and Hulk's alt's Retriever.

With the zeal of the newly converted, the Goons celebrated a victory that they knew had been made possible by the Code. Gank recipient Ravirr To called them "goatfuckers"; local rebel Nova Draconus was similarly skeptical of the Code.

Ravirr was instructed to calm down, but he categorically refused.

The longer the Goons remained in the system, the more they understood the depth of highsec's needs. Those accustomed to dwelling in nullsec are often shocked by the sorry state of the bot-aspirant miner.

Highsec's problems, like those of the world, cannot be fixed in a single day. Even multiple Goons telling the miner to calm down didn't do the trick. Nova Draconus was disgusted by the sight of Goons enforcing the Code.

Nova and Ravirr discussed the threat posed by highsec ganking. They seemed ready to appeal for help from CCP, but it would've been easier for them to send a petition to me--with 10 million isk enclosed, of course.

Maximus Decimus Urelius's Retriever was destroyed by another group of Code enthusiasts from outside CODE. Hailing from The-Culture and Templis CALSF, the gankers encouraged Maximus to buy a permit. He, too, absolutely refused.

In addition to requesting 10 million isk, the gankers informed Maximus of his need to obey other provisions of the Code, such as offering the traditional "gf" or another sign of respect. Again, Maximus couldn't see the wisdom in it.

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Even though talking to Maximus must have seemed like talking to a brick wall, he was actually getting closer to compliance with each EVEmail.

From "FUCK YOUR CODE. dont contact me again" to "i would like to request a mineing permit please" in less than an hour. Just imagine the opportunities Maximus would've missed, had the gankers taken him at his word and stopped pressing the issue. This is why the New Order--inside and outside of CODE.--will never give up on the Code. Highsec is worth fighting for.

    2. Wow. A disgusting story for all the grandkids.

    3. You should, it was about you, and it was freaking hilarious.


    4. Yeah, Wolf doesn't "do" reading. Plenty of CODE. breakers to WoW.

    5. Speak like Yoda Wolf does sometimes. Then again, he used to be our master with the force. After the ban, he has become more powerful than we can ever imagine!!

    6. You should try and read it Snigie, it's a good article.

      ~ Asia Leigh

    7. Lol that butthurt miner must really live up to his name, what a wall of text that no one is going to read.

      All Wolf has to do to collect tears is post a simple factiod in these comments, and the splerg will fly!

      CODE wins again.

      the character may have retired but his vision is unstoppable.

      Dead or compliant, carebears will be governed by the CODE!

    8. Simple is what simple does :D

      ~ Asia Leigh

    9. For example, take a look at anon 142, he tries to come up with something witty, but failed miserably. I didn't even laugh. Simple minds indeed. Then we have Wolf and Snigie who are too lazy to read some text. If they are lazy here, what does that say about them in real life?

    10. @359
      Comprehension much?
      Get a permit or get rekt

  2. This blog-post is chock-full of wisdom.

    Even though the mighty CODE. Alliance daily - hourly - brings to the citizens of Highsec its laser-focussed benevolence, sometimes too little regard is paid to the many supporters who toil away in far-flung belts and systems, who shun the limelight, yea even of the Saviour's Blog, to bring the sweet justice of his Code to those who might fail and fall without it.

    What a blessing is our beloved Code.

    1. Succinct, Anon, but curiously lacking in impact.

  3. Don't the goons have a war to lose?

  4. Yet another glorious victory for the mighty CODE. Alliance!

    I don't understand why the miner did not calm down, despite receiving repeated commands to do so?

    Praise James! \0/

  5. another failure from anti-ganking.

    they sure do love failing non-stop daily continuously ALL the time!!!!1

    1. This from a guy who takes pleasure in an AG mod committing suicide and murdering his young son...sick

    2. Yepps, murdering his young son was sick.

      Dead ag? Welp that's one less shitheel around ruining EvE and RL for everyone, and lets face it, his spawn had his genetics so it would have been just as useless in game and IRL. AND he was a mod for ag? Goddamn that explains a lot!

      So what's the problem beers?
      You didnt know the asshole or his kid, but that dont stop you from using them too.

      And whats not to take pleasure in? One less useless retard and his defective offspring on a planet of nearly 7 BILLION people.

      So what did we lose? How many people do you think this planet can support, Beers? You need to learn some resource management friend, because unlike EvE, we are all stuck on this one rock.
      Retards and their defective genetics are not needed, they will just bring down the rest of us.

      He probably did the rest of us a favor. Any of the rest of you ag defectives wanna join him?
      Become AN HERO today! Help save the world!

  6. This is a story for all the newCUMmers :D

  7. Also a story for the children and grandchildren!!

  8. The one that comes out of your ass can EvE better than all ag combined, and if you really think ag will ever win, it is smarter too.

  9. Also a parable for the miners!
    Get a permit or get rekt!

  10. Hey ag! I got some steam coming for youz! I hear you likes it!

  11. The Miner:

  12. A group of nice young Goons from the Ministry of Love

  13. If goons actually spent more time fighting the war in nullsec instead of fucking about ganking miners, then maybe they would be winning, or at least prolonging the war.
