A significant breakthrough in the war against bot-aspirancy: Maverick Adtur's unlicensed Rookie ship was terminated while autopiloting.
Agent Myevil Gankalt was the architect and executor of the brilliant strategy that led to this elite solo PvP victory. Myevil is one of countless Agents who enforce the Code from outside the CODE. alliance. The Code violators never see it coming.
Maverick Adtur > really dude -_-Maverick didn't yet understand why he had to die. Myevil wasted no time in providing him with answers.
Myevil Gankalt > Yes, really.
Maverick Adtur > you had to kill me ugggghhh I'm so lazy why did you have to send me back
Myevil Gankalt > www.minerbumping.com
Myevil Gankalt > Read the section on the Code of Halaima.
Maverick Adtur > so what"For nothing?" In a few reckless words, Maverick completely dismissed the Code and thousands of supporting MinerBumping posts.
Maverick Adtur > you target me for nothing?
Maverick Adtur > I just wanted to sell my stuff that was stored there
Myevil Gankalt > A mining permit is required for all activities in High Sec. It's the law of James 315.
Myevil Gankalt > You now owe me a "Good Fight" and 10 million isk for a mining permit.
Maverick Adtur > idc about your stupid law man my stuff my rights I get to sell it if I so choose
Maverick Adtur > I didn't come to mine I came to sell my stuff that I have in storageWhat began as a routine elite solo PvP victory grew into a territorial dispute. For no apparent reason, Maverick denied the sovereign authority of highsec's Saviour.
Myevil Gankalt > As I stated, a mining permit is required for all HIgh Sec activity. That includes travel and selling your stuff in High Sec.
Myevil Gankalt > You were operating in High Sec. You need a mining permit.
Maverick Adtur > no I don't
Maverick Adtur > its not your solar system
Myevil Gankalt > It is the solar system of James 315.
Maverick Adtur > if I have to report you to Eve customer support I willThen the miner threatened to get CCP involved. Myevil refused to back down. Our Agents are never afraid of space lawyers and their scurrilous petitions.
Maverick Adtur > no player owns a solar system
Myevil Gankalt > James 315 owns all of HIgh Sec.
Maverick Adtur > its not theirs to rule it belongs to everyone they can own a station but not the solar system
Maverick Adtur > my god your so dumb
Myevil Gankalt > Hmmm.... It appears as though you are not going to buy a mining permit.Out of nowhere, Maverick claimed he didn't have 10 million isk to spend. Myevil found this very suspicious. If Maverick couldn't afford to buy a permit, why didn't he say something about it earlier--instead of making wild claims about "free" highsec and contacting customer support?
Maverick Adtur > of course not
Maverick Adtur > every penny counts to me
Maverick Adtur > I'm barely running on 73k
Maverick Adtur > thats why I need to sell my stuff
Myevil Gankalt > We hear the "I don't have any money excuse" all the time.The situation only became more bizarre. Maverick maintained that he had access to less than one million isk, but at the same time, he had a bunch of titans at his disposal. Highsec titans, at that.
Maverick Adtur > dude I have 72,128 ISK in my wallet
Maverick Adtur > how do you expect me to pay 10 mil
Maverick Adtur > do I need to bring my Titan crew to kick you guys out
Maverick Adtur > Ragnarok be aware you will be facing ships like this in your thrasherMyevil tried her best to get the miner to speak the truth. That's no simple task; a bot-aspirant's first instinct is always to lie.
Myevil Gankalt > Oh, you have a "Titan crew" but no money for a mining permit? A likely story indeed.
Maverick Adtur > yea thats right I'm poor cause I choose to be
Myevil Gankalt > So you have powerful friends in Null Sec? That's a Miner Bumping bingo square.
Maverick Adtur > I'm a free willed person you can't choose to rule under a fake king
Maverick Adtur > people like us are laughing at you guysNext came a Faustian bargain: If Myevil Gankalt left the New Order, Maverick would give her the secret to ultimate wealth in EVE. As for Maverick, he would not share in the profits. For some reason, Maverick was committed to remaining poor. Perhaps to avoid paying what he owed the New Order?
Myevil Gankalt > Serving the Code is a player's highest calling.
Maverick Adtur > no its not hahaha
Maverick Adtur > you choose to quit I know an easy way you can make billions
Maverick Adtur > and I can even teach you but I wont be looting with you
Maverick Adtur > cause I choose to be poor
Myevil Gankalt > A dirt poor player is going to teach me to make billions? I don't think so.Our Agent was faced with a truly unusual problem: A titan-wielding miner whose vow of poverty prevented him from ever getting enough money to buy a permit. Now what?
Maverick Adtur > it worked for me but I chose to be poor
Maverick Adtur > I once found a relic sight with 12 mil worth of stuff in it
Maverick Adtur > then I gave it to one of my other friends who needed the money more than me
Myevil Gankalt > Ask him for 10 million back so you can buy a mining permit.
