A Day of Remembrance, A Day of Victory

September 10, 2014 became infamous due to the acts of barbarism committed on that day. Now, thanks to the Agents of the New Order of Highsec, September 10th has transcended its dark past and has been transformed. It is the day on which we remember all of the martyrs of the Code.


Of course, not every banned Agent met their fate on September 10th. But in the spirit of the two great virtues of unity and convenience, all have adopted September 10th as the honorary day of their permabans.


The ranks of the permabanned are filled with EVE players as diverse as EVE itself. What they have in common is that they were all creators of emergent content.


As CCP has pointed out, the best content in EVE is the content created by the players themselves. Thus, our martyrs must be considered among the creators of EVE. Everyone who plays EVE owes them a debt of gratitude.


(Amusingly, despite having been banned for the last two years, Agent D400 is still ranked among the top bounty collectors in the entire game.)


What is there to say about our heroes that hasn't already been said? Nothing, perhaps. But that doesn't matter. It simply means that we'll say it all again, each and every year.


The "Permabanned Heroes of the Code" are credited with inspiring the purchase of more than 181 billion isk worth of New Order shares. But it's impossible to calculate the total impact that our fallen Agents have had on EVE. They touched the lives of so many.


I've often observed that our Agents all possess courage and decency. It's no coincidence. The New Order seems by its very nature to attract the best of us.


However, I also believe that some of the courage and decency of our Agents is developed and strengthened after they join the New Order and begin enforcing the Code.


Not only do our Agents have the Code, they have their fellow Agents to lean upon. Iron sharpens iron, good reinforces good.


As for the permabanned Agents, they still encourage those among us who haven't been banned: Their history inspires us.


Indeed, it's not unfair to say that the Permabanned Heroes have more of an impact on EVE--have more relevance--than the leaders of all those petty nullsec alliances with their shifting loyalties, inconclusive wars, and kill-less roaming ops.


And, of course, it is far better to have enforced the Code for a single day than to have lived a lifetime of carebearism and bot-aspirancy.


The experience of our Permabanned Heroes reminds us that our time in EVE is precious--and only because we have made it so.


EVE, apart from the emergent content created by its best players, is empty, hollow, dull, dry, and meaningless. Our Agents bring it to life. They make it a game worth playing. The Permabanned Heroes of the Code embody the very essence of EVE.


Finally, there are the Unknown Permabanned: Those who lacked the ability to inform us of their bans, and those who may be banned in the future. Whoever they are, wherever they are, we salute them.

As we remember the martyred Agents, consider that although they may have been banned, we can still feel their unmistakable presence in EVE. They are still alive and still with us--in our hearts.

Because the CODE always wins. Always!

  1. I remember that dark day... it was dark.
    Anti Ganking were not failing, because they did not exist. It was so dark back then....

  2. Thanks James, for reminding me.

    This thing didn't start yesterday; the names of the fallen and the simply absent should always be before us. However, it's a great idea to commemorate the supreme sacrifice of the permabanned; to give them their special day.

    I'm sure the carebears breathed sighs of relief at the departure of the Honorable capsuleers, above. We who remain must give them no respite. We must harry them until the Code reigns supreme throughout Highsec.

    In the Permabanned we have some tough acts to follow, but *"a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step".

    1. I have full faith in the process - and know deep in my heart that The New Order Of Highsec stands for and brings out the best in us - truth, honor, loyalty and courage.

      You brave agents will succeed, of course.

      The New Order Of Highsec always wins. Always.

    4. Everyone - it's obvious that this poor soul needs saving. Look how rejection of James 315 manifests itself in him - with jealous rage at the very personification of what he knows he will never be, namely, the #1 PVPer in all of EVE.

      Not everyone can be a permabanned hero of The New Order Of Highsec, random anonymous poster too afraid to post with his main. Your unwillingless to even identify yourself speaks volumes about the content of your character and the lack of substance in your words.

      Only when you allow James 315 into your heart will you begin to understand the truth. May he have mercy on your soul.

    7. Here, my friends, you witness the twisted mine of the worthless high sec miner in action.

      The miner is upset at the verifiable fact that loyalanon is the #1 PVP'er of all time, ever. Since this fact upsets him and makes him unhappy, that justifies random homophobic slurs and poor behavior - in the miners mind, they are not responsible for their own words and actions.

      Sorry, random anonymous miner too afraid to post with his main.

  8. Proof that The New Order Of Highsec is stronger then any other group in the game is right here.

    I can't speak for any of the fallen, of course, but I would imagine in a hypothetical sense that many of us are still doing our best to make EVE a place of justice, law, and truth.

    All hail James 315! All hail The New Order Of Highsec! Today, we celebrate.

    3. I can speak for the fallen: they lead those sharing the same ideas still in game to their doom. The perma-ban grave yard, filled with skeletons bumping around like living dead, their character still in game shown in black & white like relics from an older time: the Jurassic park of the WANTED fallen morons.

      However, the delightful use of mixed metaphor does make me smile. So there's always that.

      Hope one day ccp will look at what permabanned players added to eve. Then welcome you back.

  10. You can nerf us and you can ban us as many times as you want. However, as long as there is the belief that the player-driven experience is what makes EVE Online worth playing then The Code will live on.

  15. I know as a ganker, i would relish the day CCP bans highsec carebearing. If CCP would remove highsec, then myself and many more gankers i know COULD go back to our prefered null/low shenanigans.

    I gank highsec carebears because i feel it is my duty.
    As a real EvE player that hopes to see CCP prosper, i must spend time in highsec killing shitters so that EvE's economy will remain healthy.

    The only thing highsec carebears do is take from EvE. I am here to give back, and it is a thankless task. But as an independant Agent, i am not ganking for accolades, i kill highsec shitters because it's my responsibility as a real EvE player.

    Not everyone deserves EvE, i am here to remind them of it.
    Elite shit and stuffs. xD

    1. In the sentence "perma-ban" is the word "perma", which means in English forever. I suggest you train a new character from scratch, this November it will be free for you and you could show us what you know with an alpha clone.

      Your actions dictate your future. Remember that darling, this also works in real life.

      Enjoy our EVE prison.
