Highsec Miner Grab Bag #133


Grab Bag time. Hit it!


One thing about highsec miners: They keep up on current events, apparently for the purpose of gathering material for more misguided comparisons.


...In case you were wondering what sort of fellow ArchDemiDragon is.


Ah, the old "I was holding it for a friend" excuse. True friends don't put their buddies in such compromising positions. They don't lie to our Agents, either.


StaticRain31 Rainz threatened to use his ISD alt to permaban our Agent for ganking him. The ban never came. I suppose he allowed his ISD account subscription to lapse.


Agent Lawrence Lawton lucked out: The miner's petition must've been sent to StaticRain31's alt.


Adalanta Prince wanted Jack Van Impe to feel bad about ganking her, so she deployed the most persuasive language at her disposal. But Adalanta's honeyed words had no effect on our Agent.


Gosh, wouldn't it be a shame if this game lost Adalanta?


Adalanta certainly had no love for the New Order--but she didn't show much more loyalty to her own corp. As any good CEO in EVE will tell you, the best corp members are the ones who obey the Code.


No permit, no ship.


I believe I received this EVEmail by mistake. I'll make sure CCP HQ gets it.


Lisanna struss' history with bot-aspirancy goes back a long way; he is best known for his appearance in the famous "The Female Relative" post from 2014. It may take years, but everyone who stays in EVE eventually learns to appreciate the Code.


Miners, take note: It's entirely reasonable to offer a "gf" to your ganker. And it's entirely reasonable for our Agents to expect it.

  1. Praise James 315! Can confirm, Lisanna struss has become a real EVE player.

    But what does the Goofus mean by "PK"?

    1. PK means "Player Killing".
      It's a Carebear term for PVP

      Delete
    2. PK is Player Killer,

      Which is true if you pod the pilot, it's the logical and ultimate realization of PvP, to finish off your opponent and end that clone's life.

      It might be an older term for MMO's than your familiar with. Long ago, in the before days, when PvP wasn't a term yet, there was PK'er. It was emergent gameplay then when a player attacked another player instead of the NPC's.

      It was glorious.

    3. Carebear = code

    4. Thanks CL4N0, Anon814. What a quaint expectation. I can't imagine how a capsuleer could go through an entire career in EVE with the expectation that others aren't out to kill him. It should be a foregone conclusion.

      Delete
    5. Archdemidragon-bear (God Emperor?) fails to realize that miners do have a fighting chance... if they follow the Code.

      ... also that PK is fun. It's why god made EVE.

    1. The noble miner is your real meaning

      Delete
    2. I did say, Anon, that it was the activity that was noble. It is the activity (in this case) which ennobles the actor.

      Pray, explain how the activity of mining in Highsec, in EVE Online, ennobles the miner.

      This should be good.

      Delete
    3. By the Laws of Eve no one needs to explain anything to the un-enlightened.

  5. Alas, expecting a "gf" back from an agent is, at best, a lesson in futility and broken expectations. Agents who get caught at gates and killed, get disrupted warping into a site and get killed, get ECM jammed and their victim saved (and themselves subsequently killed) seem to have a visceral inability to reply back to a "gf".

    I wonder why?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Allow me to explain. According to the Code, it is the miner who must offer the ‘GF’. In the unlikely event of anti-ganking preventing an initial attack, the Agent simply returns to dispatch the target at a later time. Only at that point is the battle over, (because Code always wins), and the ‘GF’ from the Agent then becomes both relevant, and appropriate.

      A ‘GF’ prior to the end of the battle would be both insincere, and dishonest – qualities that are unbecoming of an Agent of the New Order.

      Delete
    2. That's a really good observation you make there, didn't they just experience elite PvP? Shouldn't they follow their own rules and give a GF to those who have bested them in elite PvP?

      Delete
    3. Agent Alt 00 is correct and the anonymous coward has an inflated sense of self-importance. The 'gf' in Local is a form of respect expressed by a miner to his superior, the Knight of the Order. 3rd parties do not factor into it. ag is in fact opposed to elite PvP.

      Delete
    4. anon810 you assume anyone has ever bested an Agent in anything.

      You know what they say about 'ass u me', yea?

      Delete
    5. SO you have created pretty much a self fulfilling victory, you do realize by doin that you make every victory meaningless because you remove any thought of failure. only one person is without failure and you mock him by trying to explain away your failures.

      Do not fuck with Chuck Norris!

      Delete
    6. I don't assume you did though making that assumption.

      Delete
    7. You like to give your ass up? Really?

      Delete
    8. Professor Lawton by claiming that agents are superior to miners you debunk the idea that this is an egalitarian society.

    2. He was ag at their finest. He still has followers in ag. I have seen them say it's ok to target players (gankers) out of game for rl violence because they pvp in a pvp game.

      Lol, like any of those chicken shitters has the balls to do anything.

      You know if they are scared of pvp in a game, they must piss their pants in rl if you even talk sternly to 'em.

    3. Again leave RL matters out of this game, this site is an extension of the game therefor bringing RL issue into this forum is wrong.

    4. The thing is with AG they are not open to new ideas. You can discuss boosting fleet, quik locking and long range cruiser fleets and it is all too hard for them
      because they do not want to commit to losing ships

  14. The hypocrisy of these carebears, crying about being told how to play EVE. All while trying to force gankers to NOT play the way we want.

    I think they're too stupid to see it.

    Hey carebears, gankers are playing correctly in this particular sandbox. Who are you shitters to tell us we shouldn't kill you in highsec, when the game devs say we are playing within the rules.

    I mean who gets banned here, actual players (gankers) or the nazi-bots (miners) that threaten RL violence and spam vulgarities after experiencing the intended conquences of not protecting themselves?

    If gankers petitioned shitters for actual TOS violations at every opportunity like the shitters do all day for made up reasons, there would be no miners left in highsec.

    Maybe it's time gankers fought fire with fire. Maybe it's time gankers reported every actual violation of the TOS, and actively try to make EVE better by removing all the homicidal shitters.

    Yea, it's time to report every single highsec nazi-aspirant carebear shitter that threatens any RL actions after experiencing intended game mechanics.

    It's time to clear highsec of the real trash that gives this great game a bad name. No wonder new players quit so often, I mean we drop them right into the middle of the most toxic and antisocial shitters known to gaming hustory, without any warning.

    It time to kick the miners out, they are just too violent and not mentally able to play EVE correctly. New players should never have to listen to some nazibot highsec shitter threaten someone's female relatives over intended gameplay.

    14. Goodpost Anon207. In the case of language, the TOS and The Code are in sync.
      Keep local clean. Miners should be courteous in local and should refrain from the use of profanity.
      Miners are required to put aside their prejudices and treat gankers with respect.
      "You may not use any abusive, defamatory, ethnically or racially offensive, harassing, harmful, hateful, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, threatening or vulgar language. (Alternate spelling or partial masking of such words will be reprimanded in the same manner as the actual use of such words.) --EVE Online - Terms of Service

      Definitely report TOS violations, and always abide by the TOS because you know the miners are reporting you. Unlike more complicated petitions such as reports of botting, CCP actions language-related petitions within hours. Once you get in the habit, it only takes a minute and it makes New Eden a better place.

      Delete
    15. I have to disagree. Reporting may get them banned, and that would end their suffering that otherwise will go on for an indefinite amount of time.

      Also miners are my content.

      Delete
    16. You may not organize nor be a member of any corporation or group within EVE Online that is based on or advocates any anti-ethnic, anti-gay, anti-religious, racist, sexist or other hate-mongering philosophies

      You may not use “role-playing” as an excuse to violate these rules. While EVE Online is a persistent world, fantasy role-playing game, the claim of role-playing is not an acceptable defense for anti-social behavior. Role-playing is encouraged, but not at the expense of other player. You may not create or participate in a corporation or group that habitually violates this policy.

    17. Lol

      That 241 shitter was so mad he posted what, 11 times in 18 minutes?

      That's one triggered PHag.

      He will be easy to spot in game with that type of reactions.

    18. Better to have them banned than they do something horrible to themselves or loved ones.

    19. Look more Anon tears in 744.He even hates phags. Sounds like a masking of a certain word which is not acceptable under the TOS.

    20. Again bringing RL into a game, are you guys seriously mentally disabled?

  16. So many people that have difficulty separating real life from a video game. It's sad. Miners are like children, unable to cope in RL with what happens in a game. Miners are by far the most toxic and worthless people to ever disgrace a local chat.
    You never see gankers confusing real life and a game. They attack your in game character, not the player behind it. The same cannot be said of these sad, sad basement dwellers solo mining in a giant MMO full of people.
    The issue isn't the game, it's the socially inept people that play it- and clearly mining is where the lowest of the low pool up.
    I think every miner should have their rage in local shown to their mothers or peers. Maybe then they'd grow up and quit acting like petulant toddlers that happen to know some swear words.
