The Most Powerful Reputation in Highsec, Part 1

In the old days, the happenings of the EVE universe could be summed up in a few simple questions. Players asked themselves things like, "Who will build the first titan?" Or "Will anyone conquer all of nullsec?" Or "Can anyone stop the Band of Brothers?" Or "Will the Imperium continue to dominate the north forever?"


Today, the central question EVE players ask themselves is whether they will obey the Code. Nothing in all of EVE can inspire a greater emotional response, or a more heated debate, than the Code.


Agent Australian Excellence only spoke a few words in local before his CODE. ticker triggered a local carebear. Australian belongs to Gate Tax Collection Agency, CODE.'s newest member corporation.


Joining CODE. has a powerful effect on one's reputation. It instantly elevates a player's stature and importance. When you belong to CODE., you are bound to be the number one topic of conversation wherever you go. It's an extraordinary responsibility, and our Agents shoulder the burden incredibly well.


The triggered carebear, Nexeroff Severasse, had a lot of opinions about CODE. His frustration with our esteemed alliance had been building for a long time. The moment one of our Agents appeared in the system, Nexeroff couldn't help but let it all out.


Nexeroff was disgusted by the way CODE. members choose to play the game. So much for the sandbox! He considered it cowardly for our Agents to gang up on their targets.


The truth is quite different. According to zKillboard's API-verified statistics, CODE. primarily engages in solo PvP. Among alliances in EVE, CODE.'s 73% solo rating is quite an outlier. We are vastly less dependent on blobbing tactics than other alliances are.


By way of comparison, the allegedly elite Pandemic Legion receives only a 22% solo rating. The numbers don't lie: CODE. is the undisputed champion not only of elite PvP, but of solo PvP as well.


Nexeroff fretted about the potential effect of CCP's planned "free to play" alpha accounts. Frankly, it's a ridiculous thing to worry about. Highsec needs more ganking, not less.


By this point, Agent Australian had heard quite enough. He'd patiently listened to all of Nexeroff's insults. Now it was time for a rebuttal.


Australian reviewed his recent kills and pulled one which he considered relevant to the discussion: A 3.9 billion isk unfit Mammoth.


Our Agent introduced the killmail into evidence. Could Nexeroff deny that Australian had done the right thing--that he'd helped keep highsec in order?


The Mammoth killmail hadn't eased Nexeroff's concerns in the slightest. In fact, his rant about CODE. was only just beginning.

To be continued...

    1. Welcome, ag idiot.

      If you have never been here before just remember, you are supporting the wrong type of game play.

      Real EvE players dislike you. You are lol'd at and belittled constantly.

      If you seriously cared about EvE you would stop shitterbot/ag/failfarm/carebearing, or leave.

    2. CCP missed one by the looks of it. Chapo Muerte has been reported, and when James finally decides to come out of hiding. Someone on facebook would like to have a word with you. I will give you 20 minutes to finish with your dance.

    3. I heard James has returned as Chapo Muerte

    2. Loyalanon it is the sentence of the court that your custody be committed to the CCP ban team for confinement in CCP headquarters without possibility of parole for the remainder of your life

      You may be seated

  5. I find it funny how if a carebear gets banned he has never heard of the James 315 or his Code of Conduct but if you say it in local, the forums, Facebook, Twitter even myspace(WTF) everyone has something to say about James 315, The Code, and CODE.

  6. I really kinda hope this type of carebear does something to get banned. EVE needs much less of Nexeroff type players.

    Much less.

    He's willfully ignorant, or just plain stupid. EVE, as a community, deserves better.

    AGers can't beat the numbers... (and some of them are still learning what numbers are)!

  12. can´t say i love the Code, i´m no fan of cults or leaders. but i have to say that it adds to the gameplay when local flashes red on my runs from Dodixie to Jita. surely one day my luck will run out and i get blapped, but not yet ;)
    then, you win some, lose some, but don´t forget the joker (RIP Lemmy and thanks for the quote)

  14. Let me tell you my story, I started playing this game 2 years ago, I started like everyone else, mining, I became really good at it really soon because I enjoy it, to this day, I do enjoy mining, is not as profitable as other activities but I enjoy it, as anyone else should do while playing a game, enjoy it.

    I started in a high sec corp, learning how to compress ore and build stuff from it, then I moved to null sec, I was part of TNT, then the war came and we lost our territory, my corp disbanded. Then I joined a WH space corp, I started engaging more and more with PvP and it is actually really fun too.

    Now, at the beginning, I started by complaining about CODE and James 315 and thinking this was about money. Then I started reading this blog, and to be honest, I really enjoy the stories here, and I have to admit, I'm even thinking on joining CODE. This comes from my idea that EVE needs people like CODE, scammers, can-flippers, gankers, etc for EVE to be EVE.

    The players that like EVE, like it because of what it is, they dont complain on local, they dont AFK, they dont auto-pilot with billion-worth cargo, they are smart and always paying attention to the game, being careful, watching local and d-scanning all the time, because after all that's what make Eve, Eve. The thrill of not-being safe anywhere, HS, LS, NS or WS, whereever you go, they should be some risk involved. So, for that thanks CODE for making EVE a better place.

    By the way, like I said I still enjoy mining, but I won't buy a permit ever, I like the danger of running for my life every time I see you guys pop up in local. Thanks again guys for making it fun.

    We can't have unlimited Alpha miner alts and not have unlimited Alpha ganker alts. The prey needs the predator. Without gankers, the miners grow too numerous, they run out of James 315's asteroids, and then they starve to death.

    So you see, we have to kill miners, or else they'll die. (We're environmentalists) >:D
