The Honourable Duelist

EVE Online isn't perfect. It's an old game with a bunch of dodgy mechanics and a bad user interface. A lot of people find it boring, describing it with phrases like "spreadsheets in space" and "more fun to read about than to play". But people do play it. Why? They play EVE for the PvP.


...At least, they're supposed to play EVE for the PvP.


Ratt Bastid wandered into Uedama with a fail-fit Orca. This was a really bad idea, especially since Ratt didn't even own a mining permit. For his crimes, Ratt was sentenced to death by Kusion.


Ratt didn't know what it meant to be a good sport. In that moment, Agent Jason Kusion decided to become Ratt's coach.


Ratt was in luck. It was as if someone with ten Super Bowl championships offered to coach him. What an opportunity! Gratitude was definitely called for. A permit purchase wouldn't be inappropriate, either.


Incredibly, the carebear rejected Jason's advice, preferring to stick to the same plan that had gotten him ganked.


The highsec hauler pilot who demanded absolute safety in EVE accused our Agent of cowardice. He even claimed Jason lacked skill. In fact, the Kusions are so good at EVE that they're frequently accused of cheating. By contrast, Ratt's own skill set consisted of loading cargo, activating autopilot, and shedding tears.


With an eloquence and a conviction that must've shaken Ratt to the core, Jason spoke in defense of himself and his Code. What could Ratt say in response to such a powerful message?


The carebear gnashed his teeth and terminated the convo. What a waste. If only he'd been willing to listen, Ratt could've learned from the best.

  2. How CODE. acts:

    Let's calm down and keep the comments clean. While the Saviour appreciates traffic keeping His blog relevant, some of the comments are altogether toxic. Remember that this is a place for celebrating all of the ways that The Code makes Highsec a better place.

    AG be like:

    Pearl-clutching and hand-wringing, rationalizing their toxic and mentally unstable ways, unable to distinguish in-game from real-life, reductio ad Hitlerum, getting triggered over "miner rights", and failing nonstop daily as always.

    What The Code does for miners:

    While it is undeniable that highsec miners are scum of the lowest order, it must be remembered that they are that way entirely by their own choices, but need not remain that way. Even a career miner is capable of reinventing himself and becoming a dignified capsuleer worthy of respect.

    What the carebears don't realize is that just because a capsuleer mines today *does not mean* that he is incapable of self-improvement! I will not stand by while they deny miners a future.

    In the spirit of saving miners, The Lawton School for Pubbies Who Can't Mine Good has been established.

    A thorough study of the School's killboard will serve to educate even the densest miner on how to avoid making an appearance on it. The inevitable conclusion must be that mining outside of compliance with The Code is an unsuitable occupation, and perhaps, that the occupation of highsec mining is unsuitable altogether!

    Henceforth, my correct form of address will be "Professor Lawrence Lawton, Knight of the Order."

    The School will shortly be incorporated under the CODE. umbrella. Thank you.

    4. Maybe carebear401 would like to explain how tossing out the trash equals fail.

      Anytime you can form a coherent argument that don't involve anyone from early 20th century Berlin, please let us know.

    2. Sounds more like a TWEEPS fail, as he counted on being able to post an unlimited amount of nonsense here when he is not able to do so.

      What a shame that Kalorned and tweeps tried to become the biggest anti-gankers of all time!

    3. Awwww, did the ad shitters finally have someone wipe their asses for them?

      If we're lucky that was the push they needed to wake up and try to make a positive impact on the world around them, rather than cry and rage here like a couple fairy bitches.

    6. Please point out the "I hate gays" speach that set you off.

    2. This coming from the man who educated others on how censorship was a slippery slop. Changed your mind I see

      Delete
    3. Free speech is not over. People are free to say whatever they want. The internet is a big place and I am sure they can find somewhere to say it, where decent people do not have to read it!

      Delete
    4. There is no such thing as 'free' speech. That is, there is no speech, or indeed other human activity, which is entirely free from consequence; and that is as it should be.

      In general, censorship attempts to encourage conformity with a desired standard of behaviour; the person or entity describing that standard is responsible also for enforcing it.

      Censorship exists in every facet of human life; again, that is broadly as it should be, even though we may dispute what others find worthy of being censored.

      Thus, as the parent censures or censors the child's behaviour in accordance with his (the parent's) desired standards of behaviour, so the state, in its role as provider and lawgiver, performs a similar duty in respect of its citizens.

      It should be clear now, Anon, whence the slippery slope arises. If you do not censor, you may be accused by some of complicity in obviously inflammatory and borderline abusive content. If you do censor, you invite the censure of the 'free speech' warriors and their narrow understanding of the issues involved.

      'Slippery slope' is not an expression I customarily use, for it implies knowledge of what lies at the base of such an incline, and such knowledge is rarely, if ever, available. If I did use it (I can't be bothered to check back), I can only imagine that the context made my meaning clearer. I'll have to trust the accuracy of your memory there, Anon!

      The introduction of censorship in a previously uncensored environment is likely to cause problems for the censor. As I implied previously (my memory has returned!), it involves work, delicate decision-making, and a clear idea of what the would-be censor regards as acceptable or (less judgmentally) prudent.

      James neither owns nor writes the rules for the entity which hosts his blog. He has a responsibility - whatever his personal opinions - to abide by any rules or guidelines which are presently in place.

      Thanks for your comment, Anon. I hope I've answered your criticism, although if you're the same Anon who woefully and wilfully misconstrued my meaning previously, I remain doubtful that any explanation will suffice. Heigh-ho!

    5. I think anon 357 needs a hug, and for someone to explain the difference between hard censorship and moral censorship.

      Hint: Moral censorship is the removal of materials that are obscene or morally questionable, to sustain a certain level of civilation, rather than allowing carebears to turn the comments section into a modern day Sodom.

      Moral censorship is often used as a type of self-censorship, and is essential in modern society. It is used when adults realize that saying shit while talking shit is not the best way to get your point across.

      In this case censorship is being used so that a more civilized discussion can take place, and it was applied only after the carebear delegation lost it's grasp on reality, and it's ability to self-censor. It was done for your own protection, you will understand better after you mature more.

      Rather than take advantage of this new opportunity to argue your point without looking like an immature fool, you carebears are crying because no one wants to hear your drivel about nazis anymore. Pick a real argument next time, and maybe present it in a more adult manner. It's hard for normal people to relate to the rabid carebear persona.

      Grow up zopikip, maybe look deep into your heart and try to understand why you act out when faced with the truth and finality of being a carebear outside the Code. Freud would say it's some unhealthy obsession with The Savior, or your mom. He sould also say you need to open a dialogue with a professional, it's a necessary component of becoming a better highsec carebear. I would suggest contacting an Agent as soon as possible.

      We can forgive you for acting like a shitter, if you can forgive yourself.

    2. Not only do ag act like giant vaginae, but they are sore losers also. I guess after failing so much they finally snapped.

      And they don't know what metagame means obviously, seeing as how CODE. just kicked their asses again. Yet again.

      If James did moderate the comments it was more like the act of a parent finally cracking down on a spoiled brat after the brat refuses to concede that they are wrong, and continues the argument the only way a brat knows how, by throwing a trantrum.

      Good job Savior, they needed a lesson.

    3. There was some serious self-trolling going on, AG / Zopi-Kip/ Tweeps all trying to make us look bad. There was defiantly some rage and self loathing going on there. We'll keep them in our hearts and prayers.

  11. That Ratt Bastid character is what I think of when I think of ag. Foul, toxic, bad tempered, poor sportsmanship. You know, all those things ag has defended all these years.

    Good thing the Code is here to guide us on how to handle those undesireable types. Illegal Asset Removal by Agent should be taught in the NPE. It would have saved Ratt from wasting his, and the Agent's, time and resources.

    1. Undesirables, you use that word like a Nazi.

    2. So only nazis use "undesireable"? Can you give an example of a non-nazi use of the word? No huh? You have nothing?

      I think you are in need of higher education. Or even any education.

      You seem confused, and mad, and unable to form a coherent argument. You must have taken a load of Void directly to the face, like a money shot from hell.

      I guess the best your limited mental capabilities can conjure up is 'nazi'. Do you have no better examples?

      You use the nazi argument like a brain damaged carebear. Please try to up your game some, at least into this century.

      Until then you and your type are still considered undesirable in EvE. That's why we spend our time hunting you.

  12. I personally will be glad when hisec is removed from the game and we can bring our gank alts back home to null. After all those years of exposing the true monsters of hisec, our alts deserve a nice long vacation in a place with no violent whiney carebears.

    Until then we must double our efforts to root out criminals bots and their illegal wares, and destroy them. It's time to implement a zero tolerance policy on hisec criminal activity.

    it's permit time bitches!
