Fallen Idol, Part 4

Previously, on MinerBumping... Rusell. What can one say about Rusell?

For years, he's been a sworn enemy of the New Order. Rusell opposes ganking--and everything else good and wholesome about highsec, really.

But Rusell is no ordinary rebel, and he never intended to be. He always had ambitions to become a great leader of the Anti-Gankers.

From the beginning, Rusell has done everything he could to rise in prominence and stature among his fellow rebels, to become the face of the anti-Code resistance.

Since he never had any particular talent for stopping ganks, Rusell's activities primarily focused on ranting against Goons in the Anti-Ganking channel and begging CCP for more nerfs to ganking.

...And sending the occasional complaint EVEmail to people who purchased too many shares of New Order stock.

But on the heels of his 8.8 billion isk freighter loss, Rusell found his reputation threatened by a new breed of Anti-Gankers, who shouted him down and blamed him for losing the freighter--rather than cursing Goons and CCP for it.
Rusell > and admit that goons are deciding everything in this game
Alexander Kaan > I only said you didn't take the necessary measures to protect yourself and should not blame CCP for your faults, I never insulted anyone
Rusell > what FAULTS Alexander Kaan ?
Aldorien > I assure you all decisions of consquence are made by the management of CCP, not the CSM, not the developers themsevles
Rusell was amazed and disheartened by his chief critic, Alexander Kaan. To hear Alexander tell it, a hauler shouldn't carry too expensive a load in an untanked, unescorted freighter and jump blindly into a gatecamp.
Alexander Kaan > are you implying you did every possible thing right, mr. Rus?
Rusell > every FAULT that you mention can be counter measured for me
Rusell > Alexander Kaan you are funny
Alexander Kaan > I'm glad to give you a smile
Rusell > ive realiced now that i should never been an anti ganker that is the best measure
Rusell > now i cannot do anything
After an hour of being picked apart by critics in the Anti-Ganking channel, Rusell became even more bitter about EVE. He regretted ever joining the resistance.
Alexander Kaan > circle-jerking was never in AG's goals
Alexander Kaan > I always strive to tell people the harsh truth even if they don't like it. There's no way to improve if you get hugboxed
Brad Neece > Rusell at what point did you realize you may have needed help finishing that courier contract?
Rusell > Brad Neece yes and recover the collateral but doesnt matter anymore
Alexander Kaan > I don't think "at what point?" question is best answered with "yes"
Rusell did his best to deflect difficult questions, but his fellow Anti-Gankers hounded their leader, demanding answers.
Rusell > Alexander Kaan your harsh truth have destroyed real antigankers
Rusell > i have seen it
Rusell > Alexander Kaan do not mention me if it is not necessary
Rusell > Alexander Kaan you have destroyed anti gankers
Rusell perceived that he'd been toppled from his throne. He warned of the consequences of Alexander-style criticisms of Anti-Gankers. The anti-Code movement would be shattered from within.
Alexander Kaan > care to mention a few, mr.?
Rusell > are you trying to reprimand me?
Rusell > dont tell me mr my mother still alive
Alexander Kaan > I am having an harder and harder time understanding you, however you want to be called. I guess I'll try to stop here. Try to not mess the channel too much ;)
Aldorien > don't stop now, things were just getting interesting
Rusell > Alexander Kaan you are a bully
Suddenly, Rusell had a revelation: Critics like Alexander were just as dangerous to his ambitions as the gankers who'd killed his freighter.
Rusell > not very distant from the gankers
Rusell > you love it Alexander Kaan
Aleff Knoll > I can't believe this guy is still going. This is embarassing.
Alexander Kaan > honest feedback can't be handled by everyone but this is what AG is for
Alexander Kaan > it's not a way to share the hate towards some entity while telling each other they did nothing wrong
In fact, everyone who critiqued his bot-aspirant tendencies was the enemy. He'd realized too late that the Anti-Gankers themselves were controlled and influenced by the Goons, just like CCP.
Dorothy I > TIL antiganking is destroyed. Here me thinking it was an activity focused on prevention instead of some singular entity.
Rusell > tell me dumb but do not insult the people who has helped me
Dorothy I > He's not. People help for a challenge.
Aldorien > life too short to sweat internet insults
Aldorien > New Eden is a silly place
Rusell quit the channel in disgust. He'd spent years giving everything he had--which, admittedly, wasn't much--to the movement. Now that movement had betrayed him.
cynoalt x vonalt > russell still here? Just wanted to let him now he's one special retard
Alexander Kaan > not quite in AG spirit though
Aleff Knoll > Nah, I don't think the namecalling is necessary. I don't think I want to keep reading that all day.
Cynorella with thelongHair > quick on the bans these days
Sarah Flynt > yep
A few hours later, more prowling wolves entered the channel. The scent of blood was in the air.
ReallyProud Cyno Character > wanna hear the full story how he got caught?
Sarah Flynt > no
Aleff Knoll > I read about him earlier on you-know-where. As soon as I saw his name I knew I was in for a facepalm.
Aleff Knoll > That ranting earlier was made ridiculous because he refused to do what I did: look at what went wrong, try to find a way to mitigate the risk in the future. I hang out in this channel for that precise purpose.
And so it was that life in the Anti-Ganking channel returned to normal--with one difference. The legacy of Rusell, everything that that he'd worked for, was tarnished forever. His fellow carebears may laugh at him freely now, but Rusell's fate awaits them--and anyone--who would dare to disobey the Code.


  1. How CODE acts:

    Government agencies at all levels aimed to exclude Jews from the economic sphere of Germany by preventing them from earning a living. Jews were required to register their domestic and foreign property and assets, a prelude to the gradual expropriation of their material wealth by the state. Likewise, the German authorities intended to "Aryanize" all Jewish businesses, a process involving the dismissal of Jewish workers and managers, as well as the transfer of companies and enterprises to non-Jewish Germans, who bought them at prices officially fixed well below market value. From April 1933 to April 1938, "Aryanization" effectively reduced the number of Jewish-owned businesses in Germany by approximately two-thirds.

    What code forces miners to pay for:

    During the Nazi era, German authorities reintroduced the Jewish badge as a key element in their plan to persecute and eventually to destroy the Jewish population of Europe. They used the badge not only to stigmatize and humiliate Jews but also to segregate them and to watch and control their movements. propaganda is just like:

    Films released to the public concentrated on certain issues: the greed of Jews; the greatness of Hitler; the way of life for a true Nazi especially the young and as World war 2 approached, how badly Germans who lived in countries in Eastern Europe were treated.

    1. You are filth, nazi filth, the way you trivialise genocide.

      Do us all a favor and drink anti-freeze for dinner tonight, and make sure you feed it to your entire family. We don't need your subhuman progeny polluting our future.

      And you do it all because you are mad, but powerless to do anything about a video game.

      At this rate you will never be productive, only detrimental to the species. You must feel so much rage right now, not being able to compete with us on any level.

      You should become AN HERO, shitter, but you are too scared. That's why you will always be a shitter, and not as good as the rest of us. Too scared.


    2. Calm down Jerry

    3. Look at this one, a single word triggers him. Nazibear

    4. Oh boy we got a live one here! So are you protesting the game or the group, Auschwits is it?


    5. As a descendant of holocaust-survivors, I find you post hurtful, low and tactless. Yet it displays well the inferiority and subhuman nature of miners. Thank you for the demonstration. Praise James!

    6. Are you talking about me or the blow hard with the copy/paste? Or should it even matter I'm not a miner either way. I just started playing because I heard of this site. Regardless I find everyone here crying at each other quite a GAS.


    7. Very nice poser. So which camp were they in? Proof or your lying.

    8. Oh here we go. Whos side are you on now. Everybody here says proof or its not real. Cant we all just trust one another.

      Then again I don't even trust myself while in front of a mirror.


    9. Wait... did you question the -credibility- of a poster who does not even display the name of the ingame persona that is covering his real self?
      Only a miner can be short-sighted enough to think anything but the post itself matters. In case anyone needed further proof of anything. :]

    10. They cant take a joke they cant take a game they cant take a gank. They cant take anything.

    11. Everyone can take a joke. Its the ones who keel over and die that got it the best.


  2. If anti ganking can't save Russell, who can they save?

    1. Whos talking about saving anyone?����

    2. Ah the old coot must be feeling his old ticker slowing down. I hope he doesn't have a heart attack. It would BEAT me to the finish.


  3. Good evening, New Eden. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition, the totality of blogs. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, where upon important events of the past, usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with moderator accounts will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, ganking. They were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, James 315. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. This night, I seek to end that silence. This night, I corrupt the MB to remind this community of what it has forgotten. A great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words; they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this Code remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me, inside the gates of High Sec, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.

    1. Chancellor Sutler, is that you? Or just a lackey - Mr Creedy perhaps?

    2. I see as you see, feel as you feel, and seek as you.... well lets just say, I'm seeking. But I gotta say this little piggy may be just a ghost like our good dead friend V. Lets play some hide and seek though, I'm dying to get in some good fun before it all implodes like everyone says.
      By the way, November is soooo far off, how bout we just start tomorrow and play hide and go BOOM.
      Its a real blast.


    3. "Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof."

    4. By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.

  4. Das Nazi machine of war is gud JA!

    1. Now here's a guy who's mind may be in the wrong place but has a good idea. War!
      If we cant have fun with people in a good ole fashioned way then maybe we should just blast em. I know that's more BANG for my buck.


  5. antiganking is the definition of failure

    1. AG hubby still got yer knickers in a twist.


    Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, murdered his own children before committing suicide.

    What an evil, horrible man. At least we know that Agents of the Code would never commit such a deplorable act IRL.

    Anti-Ganking, on the other hand...

    1. That you know of, remember the young eat the old if you let them. Of course what good are children if there is eternal life in the game. Right, who needs it? Now how many of our own agents do we need to kill off to make this code great again?

    2. that would be zero.

    3. Surely you jest, there must be some friends inside the code that could use a good old fashioned slaying. Just grin and gank em and let em know its for their own good. Or at least your own good. They'll get over it, it is just a game after all.

    4. Sure lets just kill and eat em all, be one HELL of a BBQ. Peoples taste though, you know they are going to vary from person to person!



    I want to know what guilty lied in that freighter that made Rusell rightful to gank it. He's definitely a fake man. Pretending to be an innocent victim while killing other defenseless ones mercilessly when his fellows' eyes are down!

    1. You killed Oprah! I always thought she was a bag of hot air. Now she can take a chill in space.


  8. That Rusell guy is more toxic than I thought. It is good to see these things come to light. Praise James!

  9. Can an Alpha be a ganker in a catalyst? I'd really like to join. Can you please make an Alpha ganker guide?

    1. Joy, everyone join on up, its fun for the whole family. Little Billy can scout, Suzy can gank, uncle Terry can play the contacting agent. Its laughs all around for everyone.

    2. Lets hope that's the only thing he got twisted.


  10. Let's not forget tweeps and kalorned's treason against the CODE:

    1. Oh, please let us forget it and them.

  11. It is nice that I can read these messages.
