Anti-Gankers Explain the Code, Part 1

Readers of MinerBumping are fortunate indeed. Theirs is the knowledge and wisdom that comes from EVE's most reliable news source. But as we've seen, highsec's carebears are too often given misinformation from other, less reputable sources. An unlucky newbie who falls into enemy hands can be easily led astray.


Newcomer Sam Calaticcrowd joined the notoriously toxic Anti-Ganking channel and prepared to receive his education.


(Side note, since the bounty system was mentioned: I found it amusing to discover that Agent D400 is still the sixth highest ranking bounty hunter in the entire game, despite having been permabanned nearly two years ago!)


Even the most basic facts about the New Order fail to penetrate the minds of the Anti-Gankers. What information they do receive is interpreted through a twisted prism. For example, the idea that CODE. has been expelled from nullsec multiple times. This is what Anti-Gankers really believe.


At times, it seems that they live in a kind of mirror universe, a Bizarro EVE. Some carebears choose to inhabit such a realm because it allows them to brag about victories against CODE. when they would otherwise have none to their names.


The Anti-Ganking "community"'s lack of a basic understanding of CODE. is especially troubling in light of the fact that they base their entire identity around their opposition to us.


The bio of Tailsko, for example, sports a grotesque parody of a New Order mining permit instead of a valid one. It's as if she's proud to be a Goofus.


Felsan Glory took comfort in the rumor--long since debunked--that CODE.'s executor (or one of its corps' CEOs, perhaps?) can't be replaced. Meanwhile, though the rebels are infamous for making real-life death threats, ShaliWhacker was convinced that Agents of the New Order harass EVE players in real life. In fact, our Agents don't harass players in the game, much less outside of it.


Pay careful attention to the exchange pictured above. Anti-Ganker Clynn scoffed at the New Order's claims to be "content" creators. Sam, their pupil, asked for clarification. Remember that for later, readers.


Listening to the Anti-Gankers, you might imagine that the rebels behave in a polite, courteous manner at all times, and that they're hounded by profanity-spewing Agents. It's astonishing.


Inevitably, paranoia set in. Virtually any log of the Anti-Ganking channel that goes on for any length ends up with someone accused of being a spy for the New Order. Sam fell under suspicion for asking if our Agents considered themselves makers of "content". Sam's use of the "c" word was a huge red flag--even though it first came from one of the Anti-Gankers.


The good news about the Anti-Ganking channel is that because it's so toxic and unappealing, new players don't stick around for very long.


But did anyone who visited Anti-Ganking have a chance of learning anything that wasn't inaccurate?

  5. It takes special kind of dumb to be so sure of themselves and yet so completely wrong. It reminds me of the time an aquaintence told me that scientists had detected a giant gamma wave storm headed towards the Earth from an explosion hundreds of light years away. And it was POINTED RIGHT AT US!! So they government was trying to get people onto Mars or a moon of Jupiter. I told her that 1) you can't KNOW about an event like that in advance (gamma waves travel at the speed of light because they are light)so there was no way of knowing it was coming. And 2) Anything like that was going to hit Mars and Jupiter the same as us. Couldn't get through to her. It was on the Internet or something and "Science!" so there. Anti-gankers are consumed by their conspiracy theories and the wild swings between us being of no consequence and us destroying Eve.

    I, for one, am still having an enormous amount of fun in Eve. I can't believe people who talk like that are enjoying themselves. They are their own worst punishment.

  6. "ShaliWhacker was convinced that Agents of the New Order harass EVE players in real life."

    This IS true. Jimmy Boy, you forgot to mention the bonus rooms which was the reason why many code agents were permabanned. Also forgot to mention that as you go after highsec scammers, code is the biggest scammer in the game. We AG folks must educate everyone about the scam that code is.

    Not only that, Tailsko is actually not a goofus, but an AG hero. Of course, looking at American history, George Washington was considered a terrorist by the British, but also considered a General by the people that he lead.

    Besides, Jimmy Boy, ever meet the kettle? You should, since you keep calling it black when you yourself are black. So you don't twist the truth on this forum to suit your own ends? Anyone who believes that deserves you, your code, and your weird glowing ass.

    3. Yawn.

      Come on, I know you guys can do better. I take a few days off to let you nerd rage get pent up and when you finally get release, that is all that you have? Really?

      You know what? I didn't fail here, you did...both of you, Anon 11:09 and 11:12.

      So try harder next time. Come on, I know you can do it.

    4. Thank you BM, it is refreshing to be refereed to as a hero, even if it is about a game. It is just a pity that I was somewhat featured here while I was on active orders. This reply would be so much more impacting if I could have made it when this was first posted. I suppose I should make an account for replying here now, it could prove amusing once in a while.

    5. Oh, and I feel it important to note that, while I cannot describe any incident were a permit was not upheld, I can see the circular logic that allows any permit holder to be blown up and their permit invalidated after the fact. There are tons actually, but I'll number them.

      1) Suspicion of being AFK. If the person doesn't respond in local within a moment or two, they must be a bot miner, and their permit is invalid, even if they are not AFK.

      2) 'Excessive' mining. What is 'excessive' is never clearly defined, and some agents have even said, in the Minerbumping chat, that more than a single laser cycle is excessive.

      3) Suspicion of not offering a 'GF' after the gank. If the miner is thought to, for whatever reason, not offer a 'Good Fight' after they are blown up, then blowing them up to get evidence of this is perfectly acceptable, and their permit is retroactively invalid if they do not.

      So yes, the permit thing is a complete scam with many ways to go about 'legally' popping the miner even after they have one.

      Thank you.

  7. Agreed AG is anti-fun. They are the teetotallers of the EVE universe.

    We were recently interrupted by an AG during a routine bot extermination, and I informed him of our purpose. He continued to interfere (failingly of course). I told him that a universe where nobody is at their keyboard is what we stand against, and asked him if he was in favour of botting. He replied, "Isn't that EVE?"

    AG are blindly opposed to us, even against good reason, and against the best interests of EVE as a whole. They are that insane.

    (P.S. we confiscated illegal 2 ORE Strip Miners during that operation)

  10. Crap, how do i know if these ag guys are RL retards or if they are just rp-ing?

    I don't want to laugh at RL tards, that's bad juju.

    On the other hand, if they are just handicapped in game, then why not have a guilty chuckle? Guilty because deep down you know these ag tards are rl window lickers.
