I've occasionally observed that when it comes to EVE, the Code is like the ultimate superweapon. What powers that weapon? The Code does; it's its own energy source, which is cool. But the Code is also powered by other things--by the exceptional qualities of our Agents. For example, the Code is powered by love. Also, generosity:
Koizumi Taira summoned her generous spirit and offered up the isk to buy 315 additional shares. Koizumi sent us past the 1,554 billion isk mark and earned a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™. Well done.
Yet another demonstration of why even if EVE is dying, the New Order is only getting stronger and more powerful. Slutvana Khorkina purchased 2,214 shares on behalf of the Permabanned Heroes of the Code. That purchase brought us to the 1,555 and 1,556 billion isk marks and earned a Double Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
Bad Touches corp may be inactive, but gankers inspired by their example will continue to slaughter the bot-aspirants of highsec.
Len Strife made his first purchase of New Order shares. He was cautious, investing only 15 million isk to buy 15 shares. No big deal, right? Well, that happened to be exactly the amount needed to bring us to the 1,557 billion isk mark. That's about as little money as you can spend and still earn a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
Len's timing really was remarkable. Len, here's a little financial advice: Get yourself to Vegas and bet it all.
