According to zKillboard's API-verified alliance stats, CODE. has destroyed thousands of freighters and hundreds of jump freighters. So when a freighter starts getting bumped by a member of the New Order, the freighter pilot knows his goose is cooked.
Spryt3 > were forming a fleet to kill you but its a bit of a pain in the assCharon pilot Star Doppeller was triple-anti-tanked, but taking him down still would've required a number of gankers to rally. However, upon being bumped, Doppeller was ready to throw in the towel. There was no purpose in requiring our Agents to actually execute the gank.
Spryt3 > you have 8b in cargo
Star Doppeller > Yeah. How did you figure that out?
Spryt3 > we scanned you
Spryt3 > anyways the way we handle ransoms is they have to go to one of the directors
Spryt3 > Zula Terra in this case
Star Doppeller > OK. Wany my to eject it?
Spryt3 > that worksDoppeller agreed to eject his cargo as a ransom payment, but that would've required our Agents to recover the cargo with a freighter of their own. As an alternative, Agent Spryt3 suggested Doppeller simply eject himself from the freighter.
Spryt3 > let me get the hauler here
Spryt3 > hmm thats a lot of m3
Spryt3 > you know what
Spryt3 > just eject from freighter and we will take 1/3 of it out in station
Spryt3 > and trade you the rest back
Spryt3 > along with freighter
Spryt3 > otherwise i can get a freighter here but its gona take longerOur Agents never stop teaching carebears how to play the game. Though Doppeller had been in EVE for more than three years, he'd never ejected from a ship before. This would be his first opportunity.
Spryt3 > you can pay ransom in isk but im guessing you dont have much
Star Doppeller > Just trying to figure out how to eject.
Spryt3 > right click on capacitor
Spryt3 > and eject from ship
After Doppeller ejected from the freighter, Spryt3 sent his own freighter pilot to board the ship and return to station.
Our Agent confirmed the contents of the freighter. Including the freighter itself, more than 9 billion isk worth of assets had been recovered. All of it unlicensed.
Spryt3 > ok now warp top stationIt had already been quite a victory for the New Order. However, our Agents are known for putting in that extra little bit of effort. Highsec is at stake.
Spryt3 > we will trade it back to you there
Star Doppeller > Well, this is quite a loss. But everybody loses once in a while.
Spryt3 > were not done yet
Spryt3 > we have secured the contents of your freighterDoppeller had suffered the consequences of engaging in highsec PvE without owning a New Order permit. Given Doppeller's good conduct thus far--Code violations notwithstanding--Spryt3 was confident that he could reform the carebear.
Spryt3 > now we have a bit complicated proceedure
Spryt3 > you know about mining permits?
Star Doppeller > yes.
Spryt3 > you dont have one
Spryt3 > so to make things work we need you to first have a mining permit
Spryt3 > let me just get my director onAlthough the New Order has the best, most elite combat pilots in EVE, we don't always rely upon violence. If we can achieve our goals peacefully, we're sometimes willing to go that route.
Zula Terra > hello
Star Doppeller > Hello Zula.
Zula Terra > i was busy trying to get the people to kill you together
Zula Terra > but apparently we have reached a peaceful conclusion
Star Doppeller > I see.
Zula Terra > which is cool with me
Zula Terra > so now we need to get just a few things into order
Zula Terra > okay so first of all if you check my bio you can see that i have my permit holders listed thereEarlier, Doppeller admitted that he was aware of mining permits. Agent Zula Terra filled him in on the New Order in more detail, just in case the carebear's understanding of our community was only surface-deep.
Zula Terra > SwiftxFate Codie SwiftxFate Codie Pandorath Aynamka Overdose The Specter
Zula Terra > people like these
Zula Terra > to get privileges that members of CODE. community are entitled to you need to have one of these permits or be an agent of James 315
Zula Terra > http://www.minerbumping.com/ this is our website and we are quite a big group
Zula Terra > we own all of highsec
Zula Terra > for confiscated freighters and goods to give the previous owner back the belongings he needs to pay an official fee of 1 billion per 3 billion valueZula was willing to return the confiscated assets to Doppeller, but only if he paid one-third of the value as a gesture of good faith.
Zula Terra > spryt3 can you verify the value of contents?
Spryt3 > yeah, sure
Spryt3 > http://evepraisal.com/e/12549472
Zula Terra > so now to get you sorted you need to provide 9.25b divided by 3 which amounts to 3.08 billionUnfortunately, Doppeller didn't have 3 billion in isk. Though it would be less convenient, our Agents were willing to accommodate the carebear by taking his assets instead.
Zula Terra > do you have liquid isk or assets amounting to that value?
Star Doppeller > I would imagine that I have assets in that value, but not liquid isk.
Star Doppeller > Hold on...
Star Doppeller > Yeah, I'll have to give you the assets.
Star Doppeller > How much does a plex go for nowadays?Once again an obstacle presented itself. For some reason, Doppeller was hoarding PLEX in a station elsewhere in highsec. The carebear's greed for PLEX was so great that he'd purchased them in batches of five. Our Agent wanted three of them. Because Doppeller wasn't in the station with the PLEX, he couldn't take three from the stack. Thus, the only way to speedily accomplish the transaction was for Doppeller to contract over all five PLEX.
Spryt3 > 1b
Star Doppeller > I have a bundle of five plex. I can't split it from here, so I'll have to contract you the whole thing.
Spryt3 > okay
Once again our Agent was willing to accommodate Doppeller's special needs. But their business was not yet concluded.
