Highsec Miner Grab Bag #141
These "if I had known, I would've paid!" types are a tricky bunch. In a hypothetical alternate reality, would they really have paid? Even without the aid of time travel, it's possible to find out--if you dig just a little deeper:
Nah, they wouldn't have paid. It's only fitting that in this reality, they always get ganked. Welcome to the latest edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag!
The mighty CODE. alliance has done a lot to change the culture of highsec. Long gone are the days when anyone would've had sympathy for the water buffalo guy.
The truth is, anti-Code miners are extremists. They're pro-cancer, after all.
Most miners make poor conversationalists, and they know it. kevinxx invited our Agent to a private convo, said one thing, and then left. It would've been more efficient (though only slightly less rude) to send an EVEmail instead.
Some miners are convinced that CODE. is single-handedly destroying EVE. Is there any truth to that claim? Consider:
It's rare for a carebear to actually cancel their EVE subscription due to being ganked. But those who do quit are the worst players. We wouldn't want to share EVE with them anyway.
Teamwork is a foreign concept to the bot-aspirant miner.
Prometheus Ambrosius genuinely believes that our Agents bribe CCP employees so that we can gank with bots. This is called "projection". If he had the money, Prometheus would gladly grease a few palms to boost his ability to AFK mine. Shameful.
A jester? I think you've got the wrong blog.
Despite all the accusations that get leveled against our Agents, everybody knows that it's the carebears who break the rules. Gankers are principled; carebears are greedy. The natural consequences follow.
Ariel Jerusalem openly despises the EVE EULA. Don't be surprised, dear reader. A miner who will disobey the Code is a miner who will break any rule he doesn't like.
It should be obvious that EVE needs the Code. Our Agents are the only people holding this game together.
...And more and more people are coming to realize it every day.
