Highsec Miner Grab Bag #139

Uh oh, you know what that means... It's time for the latest edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!

It amazes me how some carebears can be so prejudiced against gankers. BlackNova33 took one look at our Agents and dismissed them.

I don't get why he thinks I'm impersonating Einstein.

A lot of EVE players like to leverage their connections (real or imagined) to various organizations. But there's only one name worth dropping in highsec, and it's James 315.

sruta j insisted that he belonged to a powerful group--one that our Agent didn't want to mess with. But we've heard it all before.

If sruta's alliance was so powerful, why couldn't they protect him from being ganked?

In what has become a recurring storyline in recent Highsec Miner Grab Bags, Izekial Rage thanked Nion Nostro for reporting his attempts to recruit Grab Bag "victims". Izekial was confident this would serve as a boost for his organization. So far, though, he has yet to recruit anyone.

Jang 11 was spoiling for a fight, but then he admitted that he had no money. I guess that means our Agent won the fight?

Miners need to quit the whole "I'm a new player because I just came back after a break" nonsense. We all take breaks from EVE. Besides, miners should be spending that time reading MinerBumping to prepare for their return.

If miners like lowsec so much, why don't they live there?

For a highsec miner, this guy spent an awful lot of his time thinking about lowsec. If only he showed a little interest in the Code.

Dawn Pollux isn't typical; we know that statistically, almost nobody quits EVE due to being ganked. And the people who do leave for that reason aren't the kind of players we want. I'd gladly trade ten thousand Dawn Polluxes for one decent content creator--and I wouldn't be surprised if CCP feels the same.



    Istefan went also a bit nuts in our forum thread...

    1. What a snowflake. He keeps talking about what others need to do to earn his respect when he should be thinking about it the other way around.

    2. Calm down code miner.

    3. 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.

      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.

  2. In time we will help you accomplish wonders.

  3. "If miners like lowsec so much, why don't they live there?"


    It makes me laugh every time some highsec carebear has the audacity to suggest thay they know anything at all about PVP or where the elite type happens.

    Or that they would know the difference, with their obvious learning impairment and extra chromosome.

    1. Now now, That's no way to speak of or teach the carebears

    2. Calm down code miners. We know its hard to admit you cannot pvp.

  4. all of these miners need to just calm down and purchase permits

    1. Sure but its Concord space and they don't sell permits.

    2. 4:25, be very glad they don't. James would buy the permits for all of us. That would save the logistics hassle with the Catalysts.

  5. Why purchase permits, when that sector of the galaxy is commanded by CONCORD

    1. Does CONCORD prevent miners from being ganked in hisec, or are they more of a reactionary force?

      And, do you know the difference and why it's pertinent to your argument?

      I'ma go with "no" all around.

    2. Concord never fails, so yeah its their space.

    3. 3:56 Code owns NO space, no gates, no stations, MIGHTY CONCORD Lords over you.


    5. CONCORD punishes the attacker, not protects the defender

    6. Still concord space, they never fail to eliminate those who break their laws.

    7. Code can try to JUSTIFY hisec as their property, but we all know it belongs to the MIGHTY CONCORD. Concord wins every time always, without fail.

  6. Look a whole new article of code tears because they cannot pvp.

    Keep trying code miner.

  7. wow. just wow. antigankers are still failing??? XD XD

    Never forget shardani



    3. The best kill Wolf ever got, Shardani, who killed himself because wolf couldn't do it.

    4. Code Nazis proving that they are just hateful.

      Ming Tso February 26, 2016 at 3:04 PM
      Anti-gankers really are family abusing psychopaths.

      And Kalynn Shardani is dead. RIP

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

      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

      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.

      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?

      Wolf SopranoJune 19, 2017 at 7:11 PM
      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.

      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. ;)
      Wolf SopranoJune 26, 2017 at 9:13 PM
      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

      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!

      AnonymousJune 30, 2017 at 5:20 PM
      452anon have you visited the broadcast4reps chan? You are getting a bit worked up there and we wouldn't want you to start murder-suiciding folks. Help is out there, don't be another victim of ag incompetance.
      Wolf SopranoJuly 19, 2017 at 8:43 PM

      wow sounds like that antiganking moderator that they worship that killed his child and then himself

      ReaperJuly 29, 2017 at 11:30 AM
      If only shardani was CODE compliant, who knows what might have been.

      Wolf SopranoAugust 19, 2017 at 1:54 AM

      on a side note. 3 concord whoremails in 7 days. hahahhahahahaa antigankers failing hard just like shardani

    5. Why u so triggered? Sounds like you need some help. Don't be afraid to reach out for some.

    6. You responded to my copy/paste that means I have won round 2.

    7. So that 348anonbot seems a bit upset. I bet he was in a retriever in high sec. Retriever pilots shed the most tears.

    8. You said tears I win again.

  8. You seem really mad over a video game.

    Are you that capitan rage snowflake?

  9. Calm down code miner, we know its not your fault you cant play.

  10. To call gunning down someone who has no ability, or little ability, to defend themselves "elite PVP" is the same as sucker punching a 6 year old and calling it championship boxing.

    1. yeah because real life directly relates to a video game. oh yeah shardani

    2. You said shardani I win again.

  11. Test of Valour. Prove you are not afraid to die by Coding a valuable ship, and do so in a manner that demonstrates integrity and honesty.

    Test of Wisdom. Correctly answer the almighty Lord Rage’s questions three. Each question must be answered within 20 seconds. The Questions Three will be different for each code monkey each day.

    Test of Fortitude. Walk a mile in the miners shoes by becoming a miner. You must continue to mine for an indefinite period of time.

  12. 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 prices

  13. 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?

    1. So all the evidence in these archives basically proves you wrong, but yet you still post that unverifiable copypasta once a week or so? I would really like to know your age and education history.

      How's that extra pair of 21's working out for ya?

    2. YAY Another response to copy/paste I win yet again.

  14. How CODE acts:

    Government agencies at all levels aimed to exclude Jews from the economic sphere of Germany by preventing them from earning a living. Jews were required to register their domestic and foreign property and assets, a prelude to the gradual expropriation of their material wealth by the state. Likewise, the German authorities intended to "Aryanize" all Jewish businesses, a process involving the dismissal of Jewish workers and managers, as well as the transfer of companies and enterprises to non-Jewish Germans, who bought them at prices officially fixed well below market value. From April 1933 to April 1938, "Aryanization" effectively reduced the number of Jewish-owned businesses in Germany by approximately two-thirds.

    What code forces miners to pay for:

    During the Nazi era, German authorities reintroduced the Jewish badge as a key element in their plan to persecute and eventually to destroy the Jewish population of Europe. They used the badge not only to stigmatize and humiliate Jews but also to segregate them and to watch and control their movements.

    How code fights:
    Blitzkrieg means “lightning war”. It was an innovative military technique first used by the Germans in World War two and was a tactic based on speed and surprise. Blitzkrieg relied on a military force be based around Light tank units supported by planes and infantry (foot soldiers). The tactic was based on Alfred von Schlieffen’s ‘Schlieffen Plan’ – this was a doctrine formed during WWI that focused on quick military victory. It was later developed in Germany by an army officer called Heinz Guderian who looked at new technologies, namely dive bombers and light tanks, to improve the German army’s maneuverability. propaganda is just like:

    Films released to the public concentrated on certain issues: the greed of Jews; the greatness of Hitler; the way of life for a true Nazi especially the young and as World war 2 approached, how badly Germans who lived in countries in Eastern Europe were treated.

  15. Good evening, New Eden. Allow me first to apologize for this interruption. I do, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of everyday routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition, the totality of blogs. I enjoy them as much as any bloke. But in the spirit of commemoration, where upon important events of the past, usually associated with someone's death or the end of some awful bloody struggle, are celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought we could mark this November the 5th, a day that is sadly no longer remembered, by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat. There are, of course, those who do not want us to speak. I suspect even now, orders are being shouted into telephones, and men with moderator accounts will soon be on their way. Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission. How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well, certainly, there are those who are more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable. But again, truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, ganking. They were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, James 315. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent. This night, I seek to end that silence. This night, I corrupt the MB to remind this community of what it has forgotten. A great citizen wished to embed the fifth of November forever in our memory. His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice, and freedom are more than words; they are perspectives. So if you've seen nothing, if the crimes of this Code remain unknown to you, then I would suggest that you allow the fifth of November to pass unmarked. But if you see what I see, if you feel as I feel, and if you would seek as I seek, then I ask you to stand beside me, inside the gates of High Sec, and together we shall give them a fifth of November that shall never, ever be forgot.

  16. So the victims of their villainous deeds would descend upon them bringing forth new weapons and new warriors who would fight in new ways. Those who had done them harm would find fate without mercy and they would feign bravery. Alas fear wells up deep from within and a very real shiver ascends the spine of the criminals and murderers as they now look into the very mirror of their animosity. They cannot win a war that reflects themselves.

    So it is written in the book of rage.

  17. HAHAHAHAHA copy/paste attack, you have been defeated.

    Round one of my blog game goes to me, ANON.

  18. You can stop pretending you're not really a triggered high sec miner.

  19. So by crying here, what do you hope to prove? You kinda look like a hypocrite now, and a salty one at that.

    What adults cry that hard over a video game?

  20. I got the words triggered and salty that's two more wins for me.

  21. That's six wins I have as of right now, boy you guys really suck at the blog game.
