A Blockade Against Bot-Aspirancy

The New Order of Highsec is the primary source of innovation and emergent gameplay in EVE today. And we need to be, if we're going to achieve our goal of absolute Code compliance. Our Agents are constantly adapting to find new methods by which they can eradicate all the various forms of bot-aspirancy.

From time to time, an Agent feels a calling to concentrate on a particular type of ship or activity. Agent V-ktor Dolus felt inspired to bring the Blockade Runners ever more deeply into the fold.

As a consequence of our freighter ganking over the past few years, many haulers have switched over to Deep Space Transports. They couldn't run or hide from our vigilant Agents; we've been seeing a lot of blingy DSTs show up on recent Kills of the Week posts. Blockade Runners are similar to DSTs, but they come equipped with covert ops cloaks.

When used as CCP intended, Blockade Runners are essentially uncatchable in highsec: Immediately upon entering a system, a Blockade Runner can initiate a warp to the next gate and activate its covops cloak before being locked. Since there are no bubbles in highsec, it should be smooth sailing for the BRs.

However, as our Agents discovered, many Blockade Runners don't bother using their cloaks--even when manually warping from gate to gate instead of autopiloting. But why? Because they assume highsec is safe. Therefore, they disdain the simple task of activating their cloak for each jump, despite the near-invincibility that would be granted them for doing so.

That's bot-aspirancy, my friends.

Agent V-ktor and friends tested the Blockade Runners by attempting to lock them upstream. If the ship was lockable, that meant it wasn't immediately activating its cloak upon entry to each system. The sentence for this crime was death.

One after another, the cloakable ships fell in battle. The game mechanics should've given our adversaries an insurmountable advantage. But the Code gave our Agents the victory anyway.

V-ktor used a combination of traditional gate gankers working with a small (but armored) fast-locking ship acting as tackler to quickly interrupt warp initiation. The results were impressive. Needless to say, these haulers didn't expect suicide gankers to tackle them; they assumed safety while manually warping from gate to gate.

Each Blockade Runner was sent a special questionnaire, which politely reminded them that they could've escaped had they used their cloaking device. Naturally, the carebears were also asked why they'd chosen not to cloak.

The vast majority of the Blockade Runners were too stubborn and vain to answer the questionnaire. Those who did respond had no choice but to grudgingly concede that they'd been bested by our Agents.

Let all the potentially cloaky haulers be on notice: The Code requires not only that you manually warp instead of autopiloting; you must also use your covops cloak just like you would outside of highsec.

Elite PvP wins again! What a wonderful lesson for the Blockade Runners to learn. I wonder, how long until the pilots of these advanced ships complain that ganking them makes new players unsubscribe from EVE?


  1. Main reason you see this happen in hisec is because BR's are immune to cargo scanning.
    Which makes them targets because everybody assumes if you are using a BR the cargo must be very juicy.
    So, as you can see, BR's get killed a lot more than you would think, in hisec anyway.

  2. Aaahhh..... back to miner murder, everything is right with the world! ;)

    Thats 'miner' not 'minOr' you ag freaks! Ffs learn to control yourselves! You need to keep that in game friends.

    That being said, Kill All Miners!!! Ahahahaha!

    1. Code Nazis proving that they are just hateful.

      My god. I know we always make jokes about anti-gankers being abusive to their wives and children and that we in The New Order are proud to "take the hits so that they don't have to" but this is actual proof that we were right.

      Anti-gankers really are family abusing psychopaths.

      And Kalynn Shardani is dead. RIP

      Just remember:

      CODE kills miners, ag kills minors.

      Why do people use the phrase "passed away" instead of committed suicide? Don't they know what REALLY happened?

      Well whatever it was, I'm glad she didn't kill her children.

      inb4 someone cries how I don't have common decency or whatever, like my words are worse than killing your own children and committing suicide.

      Also, Link please

      And continue to do so:

      Man, what's with carebears and RL death threats?

      This is why EVE needs a screening process for highsec mining. We should make every highsec miner pass a test to see if they can be trusted to mine responsibly in highsec. We need to weed out the criminals.

      Some of them have already proven that the RL violence is not just words. One of the leaders, and most outspoken, of the "anti-gankers" believes it's ok to harass people in RL over in game pvp. He believes it's ok to violence people in RL.

      And his predecessor kalynn was such a rager he couldn't seperate RL from game and we all know how that shit ended.

      And they're not the only ones. That foxbolt guy, holy shit. I saw his videos before he took all that shit down, that guy was crazy. I mean like rocking in his chair while grasping the seat all while trying to convince the world he was entitled to recieve a monthly stipend of real dollars from his corpies so he could quit his job and run his EVE corp..... Wow

      You should all be afraid of highsec miners. You should be very afraid.

      That's not even the tip.

      They are not 'people' friend, they are bots. What are you, some sort of "machine hugger"?

      Grow up. If some anon shitter is so weak they off themselves over comments in a video game blog, they probably did us all a favor. They most certainly helped future generations by weeding out some bad genetics. How stupid are you?

      Haha thats rich coming from thomas who likes to sperg in local now about how hes NOT trying to save a freighter while fail repping it in a basilisk ���� ag still worship shardani too! Disgusting

      You need to leave your friend kalynnpiggie out of it, ehneepiggiepoo. Only agpiggies commit suicide over a game.

      Wolf SopranoJune 23, 2017 at 10:35 PM
      Links anonymous posters as proof. Hahahahahaha.

      Cries about how bad code is - ignores the fact that an antiganking moderator actually did kill himself and his child.

      I hope part three is when James details how highsec can save eve if we eradicate alphas and miners.

      That's 'miners' you silly carebears, quit murdering children in RL. ;)

      Antigankers are failing so hard right now!!!

      Never forget shardani XD XD XD

      Is it time to murder miners yet?

      In game of course, you silly ag shitters need to stop killing folks RL.
      Wolf SopranoJune 27, 2017 at 4:26 AM

    2. Holy fuck, a slew of shit being flung here. Hey where's the fucker that says shit a lot this is his sexual fantasy right here, I giant pile of shit all about the code. Here shit fucker, here's your stink hole to fuck.

  3. Attempting to fly a Blockade Runner without knowing how to use it? That's a paddlin'.

    1. Yeah your just as fucked in the head as that old senile Simpsons character too. Get original fuck-wad!

  4. wow antigankers failed so hard right now

    100% compliance! 100 years of James! 100 years of the code!

    1. This is a bot programed to repeat the same statements.

  5. "The vast majority of the Blockade Runners were too stubborn and vain to answer the questionnaire. Those who did respond had no choice but to grudgingly concede that they'd been bested by our Agents.

    Or thought the questionnare was a joke, accepted their losses like any ol' EvE Online player would and moved on.


    1. O, I think it's simpler than all that; they didn't answer the questionnaire because they didn't have to. Knowing bot-aspirants, if there's no isk or other material benefit in it for them, they won't lift a finger.

    2. ehneepoo are you subbed yet? You know broke alpha shitters don't have an opinion. Maybe a second job would help.

    3. Anonymous714AM stop drinking, read what I posted before on here, and stop QQing

    4. Anonymous419PM, I don't believe in safe spaces and echo chambers for groups. Even for professional gankers.

      And if they want to treat me like a devil because I'm a filthy industrialist and miner, welp, I'm a-gonna play the part.

  6. Well done Agent V-ktor! Brilliant innovation.

  7. Its so nice that you guys have stopped moderation again, so does that mean your ready for another loss. Well then get your gloves off its time to play. Tell ya what, I'll give each post some time to get all the RA-RA's out before I start fucking with your precious little feelings you little twinkle stars from shit-ville.

  8. I unsubscribed from Eve after getting ganked in a BR.
