Attack on Poinen, Part 1

For a non-hub system, Poinen local is fairly busy. It's a legacy of Poinen's glory days at the heart of the Red vs. Blue community. Once upon a time, Red vs. Blue was one of EVE's great shining lights. They still exist, but they never fully recovered after being defeated by the mighty CODE. alliance at Alliance Tournament XII.


Poinen local chat, automatically logged by countless players filtering in and out of the system, gets advertisements here and there. It's not packed with scammers like Jita, but the Poinen ads can be annoying enough. On this day, a recruitment ad was met by instant retaliation.


Seth Anzomi was lugging an octuple-anti-tanked hauler through the system. As he passed through, he dropped a recruitment ad for his corp in local. Mere seconds later, Seth was ganked.


Agent Luna Nightblood was the ganker on duty that day. Seth's pod narrowly escaped her judgment. Seth remained in Poinen so he could tell Luna exactly what he thought of her.


Luna's instructions to calm down went ignored, as did her courteous "gf" in local. Seth made it clear he had absolutely no intention of obeying the Code.


Onlookers in local cheered Luna's wonderfully executed gank. If Seth had expected to get the support of the Poinen community for his anti-Code rant, his illusions were now shattered. So he pivoted:


Seth revealed that he wasn't a highsec miner at all. His was the life of a wormhole miner. He was proud to be a wormhole dweller--and he apparently felt he was exempt from the Code while passing through highsec.


To our Agents' shock and dismay, Seth declared a war of words against the New Order. By this point, Seth should've been transferring 10 million isk to Agent Luna. He chose a different path.


Luna wanted to make sure Seth knew how affordable mining permits are these days. Seth hastily rejected her offer.


Although it's true that our Agents don't spend much time ganking miners in wormholes, Seth lost sight of the big picture. He was flying an unlicensed, anti-tanked hauler through highsec. There was no question that this activity was subject to reasonable regulations, such as, "Don't do it!"


Seth was convinced that our Agent had violated the Code. He made a lot of assumptions about the Code, but he spent very little time reading it.


When the space lawyer routine failed, Seth changed tactics.


Agent Luna won the first battle of Poinen when she PvP'ed Seth's ship. But now Poinen local chat would become a battleground in its own right. And it was a battle that both sides intended to win.

To be continued...

  1. There seems to be more and more cases of these miners absolutely loosing it in local. Maybe it's the countless hours spent drilling rocks that makes them so incredibly vile.

    They need the Code. I swear I will do my best to bring it to them.

  3. With this amount of uncontrolled rage, it's clear Seth was abused as a child.

    1. Bull
      Shit


      He was just raised like so many others these days, without proper parenting, and taught that he is entitled to having things go his way with little or no effort on his part.

      And without any real repercussions for his actions.

      He's a spoiled rotten mouthy little shit that needs Mark Harmon to smack him, Gibbs style.

    2. You guys need to separate reality from game you keep bringing up RL and real bad RL shit like abuse, mental deficiencies, sterilization, and even a murder suicide. When you going to stop trying to be code outside of a game? Seriously put it down for a minute and be a person for a few hours a day and stop trying to br5ing people down with tragedy.

    3. Maybe he was abused, maybe he wasn't.

      I for one am hopeful that this miner didn't take the gank out on his wife and kids.

    5. You mean like separating in game CODE. alliance from out of game Nazis who committed actual mass murder?


      Hmmmmm.... :thinking:

    6. From the words of the Savior himself:

      "So if allowing the miner to vent his profanities toward me in local saves his wife or children one extra beating, that's something I'll gladly take."

      All in a day's work for our beloved Agents.

    7. For the record, it's AG Anon 8:16 bringing up suicide, yet again. Self trolling anonymously and trolling good descent agents. AG is so vile, so full of self loathing, and so wracked with guilt, that they can't post with their real names.

      Wolf is right! We all know what AG Anon is :hinting: at.

    8. So 816anon is an angry shitter with reading comprehension problems?

      AND. I always laugh at Wolf. His timing is impeccable. ;)

    9. I think Anon650's analysis is more likely. Just a spoiled youth.

  4. Seth Anzomi is just another poor sport that doesn't deserve to play EVE until he can learn how to play the game without such public displays of vulgarity.

    If he cannot control himself any better than this, our community cannot let him remain.

    I believe every player should EVEmail him and remind him to calm dowm.

  5. Seth Anzomi is a fountain of tears. He is the embodiment of entitlement. This may be the series of the year. Don't miss the subsequent installments where he gets on teamspeak.

    1. Dammit! I am resubbing and joining CODE.. You guys have all the fun!

      There is nothing quite as satisfying as listening to some highsec shitter make a complete fool out of himself over pvp in a pvp game.

      That moment when he realizes why you are really laughing at him.....priceless.

  6. I remember that night, literally a moment i can't forget :D

  7. Link the teamspeak. I love listening to retards like that guy blowing a fuse.

  8. I've been waiting for this story. Believe me when I say, the best is yet to come :-)

  9. Having listened to Seth rage on teamspeak, it's perfectly clear he was abused as a child.

    1. So tell us doc, did his mommy not breast feed him long enough? Sounds like she might have suckled him a few years too many.

      I see no excuses for bad manners. If we validate that type of behavior, more shitters will think it's acceptable.

      Your list to port is quite noticeable friend. ;)

      Life is tough all over, adults learn how to deal with it.

    2. Abuse comes in many different forms: a lack of correction, poor frames of reference, Mommy thinking he was Jesus reborn while he beat up 4 year olds. Perhaps Daddy just handed over his credit card to play online? Who knows how he was abused?

      We don't know, and we don't need to know. Seth was brought up terribly - for that his parents are unquestionably to blame - but so is he. A filthy wretch, homophobe and racist. Time for the offense police to knock on Family Anzomi's door.

  10. Hmm, I sometimes pop over here just to see how things are, I enjoy both the rage and tears, it's almost enough to make me want to come back to EvE sometimes. Heck I just downloaded it from Steam to find out how my old toons are doing and where I left them.

    I'd kinda hate to ruin the rep my main account earned over the years of play, can you take a free account to get it T1 catalyst ready?

    Of course I'd really like to blast some agents too, I wasn't ever rich as far as EvE was concerned, but I did enjoy some elite PVP. I'd probably have to see what the last many years of patches have done to my ships, might need some upgrades :)

    1. You can by back sec status now for emergency purposes, but why would you want to be anything but a well trained -10.0 ?

      That's how you are supposed to play EVE, anything else is just half-assing it.

    2. the alpha clones can't fly the gank catalyst sadly

    3. What rep? No one remembers you, bro. I promise.
