Fury Management, Part 1
No pain, no gain: The quality of Hek local chat suffered, but the system's asteroid belts were better by one illegal miner.
The hero on duty was Lewak, one of countless independent Agents of the New Order. Some rebel carebears set the mighty CODE. alliance red, but how can they avoid justice when all of highsec rises up against them?
Erikoff Beldrulf was absolutely enraged when he lost his ship. Even the sight of the Code URL was enough to set him off. Obviously this miner had suffered a painful loss.
The loss in question was a Venture worth a little less than 2 million isk. The mining frigate was tanked, but somehow our Agent's firepower was able to overcome it.
Lewak spoke the truth: Obeying the Code is the only thing that can offer a miner any real protection. Screaming in local--even if one is echoed by fellow screamers-- just isn't gonna cut it.
Erikoff didn't ask, "Where was Anti-Ganking? Why didn't they save me?" But for some reason the miner felt it would be helpful to alert the Anti-Ganking channel about the incident.
Perhaps Erikoff hoped to rally an army of rebels to take down the New Order. Or maybe he was simply trying to let off some steam. Either way, he failed his objective: No one came to his defense, and he wasn't getting any less angry.
As a Code enforcer, Lewak had seen plenty of miners whine in local after being terminated. Still, he could sense that something was wrong with this guy. Our Agent decided to ask Alt 00 to drop by so he could get a second opinion.
Alt 00's first step was to offer Erikoff some art therapy:
The Statue of 315 is a famous piece of New Order artwork painted by Alt 00 herself. Viewing the painting has a soothing effect on most people. Would it help Erikoff calm down, or would its beauty only enrage the miner further?
To be continued...

Try to look at it from the miners viewpoint. He just lost a ship worth, lets see, (carry the 4, divide by a billion), ah, two cents in real money.ReplyDelete
Nope, your right. Complete over-reaction...
Jamey = L. Ron Hubbard.ReplyDelete
Don't drink the Kool-Aid.Delete
Wow, I thought the last guy was angry. But Erikoff Beldrulf is REALLY angry.ReplyDelete
Ima gonna guess he has 'issues' in rl or he's just really good at RPing an angry space miner.
I hope not all miners are racistReplyDelete
All of the worst character traits are abundant in miner populations. Chiefly greed and indolence, but also stupidity, bigotry, vulgarity, entitlement, cowardice and willful ignorance. Often when they seek to be "left alone" it's because they're not fit to be seen.Delete
Spoken from someone who is happy with killing unarmed players. No wonder people call you Nazi's.Delete
So Professor, to you this is elite PvP. This is also roleplaying. So that means that you role play a character that is ok with killing unarmed people, now think about that.ReplyDelete
You can accept and play as a person who is actually perfectly fine and happy to promote killing unarmed people.
A sandbox game allows players to express who they are deep down inside but do not do so in a public setting for fear of reprisal.
That means you are in fact an actual person who is ok with killing unarmed people.
That miner was a ticking timebomb just waiting to go off, and Agent Lewak started the defusal process with the precision I've come to expect from Agents of The New Order.ReplyDelete
Great work there, Lewak, I feel safer knowing that such a volatile miner is no longer in the belts of Hek.
This is why all miners really should make sure their paperwork is in order before undocking.ReplyDelete
Anything worth doing is worth doing right, miners.
Glory to the New Order!ReplyDelete
Hello Alana! Come kill miners.Delete
Yes join the fourth reichDelete
While I am disappointed in the choice of words this person used. I believe the hate and RL slander has gone both ways before.ReplyDelete
Huge buttrage over such a cheap ship lol.ReplyDelete
Miners are like really lazily written movie villains. It's not enough to just make them antagonists to the heroic New Order agents, the writers also had to make them abusive and racist would-be rapists in order to make SURE the audience hates them.ReplyDelete
Don't kid yourselves. Even the dirtiest pirates from the birth of EVE have been carebears. They use alts to bring them goods at cheap prices and safely, rather than live with consequences of their in game actions on their main, from concord to pricesDelete
