The Code Is Your Shelter

Protip: Pay your taxes. Among the greatest dangers to those who lack a mining permit is the Gate Tax Collection Agency, a CODE. member corp. They've really ramped up the audits lately, inflicting a quarter trillion isk worth of damage this month.


Sirtech Silicore of the Diesel-Pump Tax Shelter was in for the surprise of his life when he ran into Agents Tax Collector HongMei and Taxman Daniel. Our Agents determined that the miner owed them isk for back taxes and penalties. The result was the destruction of Sirtech's 2.3 billion isk Tayra.


Sirtech's Tayra was filled with drugs, as well as a bunch of blueprints. All of the cargo was contraband, since Sirtech didn't own a mining permit.


Agent Tax Collector KarlMarx offered the miner a "gf", but Sirtech wouldn't reciprocate. He had the entitled attitude typical of carebears: He bemoaned the loss of years of work, but didn't stop for a moment to consider that he was also years behind on permit payments.


Sirtech took out his anger on our Agents, but the anger should've been directed at himself. He was a criminal, and he knew it. It was only a matter of time before the taxman caught up with him.


It's not uncommon for carebears to threaten to quit EVE after they lose a ship. But Sirtech hinted that he'd already hated the game even before he lost his ship.


Our Agent's good advice was ignored as Sirtech vented his anger. The miner seemed to think that being nasty enough in chat would get him permabanned by CCP. Sirtech had a lot to learn.


For the first time, our Agent realized the miner was serious about wanting to quit. Miners usually jump at the chance to get reimbursement isk.


Sirtech confirmed what he'd suggested earlier: He hated everything about EVE, not just the PvP.


The miner fully understood that EVE is a sandbox--and that's precisely what he hated about it. He didn't want to experience emergent content.


Sirtech was done with EVE forever. And it wasn't enough to uninstall the game; he might be tempted to return later. He needed to be permabanned to ensure that he would never play EVE again.


The stingy carebear wouldn't part with the rest of his property. Even if his drug stash constituted most of his assets, he must've had a least some liquid isk. Unfortunately, Sirtech would take that money to his EVE grave.


Here we see the limitations of the "free to play" model. It may bring people into the game, but they can just as easily leave. They need a reason to keep playing--like the Code, for instance.


EVE University, too, has its limitations. The Code provides the answer there, as well.


At last, in Sirtech's final moments, he congratulated our Agent on his PvP victory. Sirtech had potential. In fact, I choose to believe that every EVE player has the potential for greatness. But Sirtech wasted his EVE life on drugs. And the most deadly drug of them all is bot-aspirancy. What a shame.

  1. It's tempting to give in to the miner's guilt trip and feel a bit of sympathy, until you notice his ship had at most 10k EHP if he even got his active tank running. A single gank ship could have taken it down easily because he wasn't following The Code.

  5. Fortunately for miners, there are other video games out there that are slightly more suited to their ability and mental age, (and anti-gankers too, for that matter):

    1. A month ago you heard that someone took 500 billion worth of stuff from CODE..

      You silly carebears rejoiced and wept and fell to your knees in exaltation.

      Now you hear that CODE. is falling apart again, can we expect more of the same fail from ag?

      How stupid can one group be?

    3. What these bears don't understand is that the entire CODE. alliance could close tomorrow and the New Order Treasury could drop to 0 ISK and we would still be doing the same thing we did today and yesterday. CODE. Alliance is the official alliance of the New Order but it is not the New Order itself. And most agents actually supply their own ships with their own ISK.

      Sure, zkillboard might look a bit lighter, but the end effect of miners getting rekt will still occur. So get your permit today!

      Delete
    4. That's a fact. The most prolific Agents don't even avail themselves of James 315 reimbursement. Many of them do the opposite and buy shares.

      Delete
    5. Truth! I'm not in it for the ISK. I got ISK to spare.

      Granted, I try to keep costs down and I try to gank something of higher value, but that's the way I fly. The payoff for me is popping something that was worth more than the ship that just got CONCORDED. But now that I got the concept down that CONCORD kills don't count against you on the killboard (muhahahahaha...) its now open season on Ventures while cruising in my Catalyst. >:D

      So yeah, someone can ninja the treasury, it's not going to change things for me. It's not like I'm putting in for the Agent Reimbursement Program or anything. Hell, I've paid more in stocks than anything else and still got ISK in my wallet!

      All Hail James and the CODE! Get your permit today and stay off of my killboard. ;)

    6. Goons, Gimme Da Loot, NOGA., Kusion, CODE., and other ganking organizations all share a common philosophy: That the risk vs. reward in Highsec out of whack and that carebears need to die. Ganking is a highly decentralized small-gang activity. Think of all the organizations as heads of the same hydra, with The Code as the body.

  13. In some ways you feel bad for him. Pity him even. But if he took some caution when moving his entire livelyhood in new eden to someplace else, he might still be playing. Build some tank, skill for tank, expect the worst, and never use autopilot. How hard is that? Oh right, and if you are flying through code/new order space, spam local with the fact you want to buy a permit! I don't like it, but what is 10 mil isk to years of your time? Ponder that miners.

    1. Don't let them think just kill em till they rage quit.

    2. That defeats the purpose of what the new order folks here do. Killing them off does not allow them to learn, and in time become better players.

    3. There is no teaching the filthy miner, they must be eliminated from the game for the good of the code
