Where You Send the Money, Part 1

How does one gracefully handle the loss of one's ship? It's a question that faces each and every carebear who lacks a mining permit.


Alyssa Yazria lost her Retriever and 92 million isk pod. The direct cause of this loss was her bot-aspirancy. Alyssa, you see, was a bot-aspirant.


The indirect cause was Agent Aaaarrgg. His blasters merely put the exclamation point on the death sentence that Alyssa had already written for herself.


Upon losing her ship, Alyssa suddenly became much more interested in reading the Code. But it wasn't all good news: Alyssa scanned the Code in a rush, merely looking for instructions on where to make her 10 million isk payment. She wasn't interested in any of the deep, profound stuff I wrote.


The problem is that Alyssa, again, was a bot-aspirant. She viewed highsec and the Code in purely transactional terms: "Push button, receive safety." She didn't get that the New Order is a family, a relationship.


Alyssa was forced to actually interact with a human being to get more information about how to buy a mining permit. Despite getting the chance to talk to a cool guy like Aaaarrgg, Alyssa was still a big hurry to move on.


The miner sent our hero 10 million isk and seemed perfectly happy to end the relationship there. Agent Aaaarrgg began to doubt that Alyssa would actually obey the Code.


Out of generosity and concern, our Agent reminded Alyssa that she needed to put the permit in her bio for it to be effective. Maybe Alyssa didn't need this reminder, but Aaaarrgg had a hunch the miner hadn't been keeping up with the last few years of MinerBumping posts.


As Aaaarrgg feared, Alyssa had kept herself completely in the dark as to the bio requirement. In a supremely cynical act of deflection, Alyssa raised--for the first time--unverifiable personal issues that had precious little to do with the Code.


Aaaarrgg lent a sympathetic ear and told Alyssa how to live a happy life--no extra charge. But would Alyssa listen?


Barely a month later, Alyssa lost another Retriever, this time to members of the Wreckonomics corporation.


How could this happen? Didn't the miner own a mining permit? Well, let's have a look at that permit:


Sigh.

To be continued...

  1. It is simply amazing the number of Carebears who purchase a New Order mining permit having never actually read and understood the Code and the obligations of a permit holder.

    Like they expect to be able to buy 100% safe, no effort isk generating capabilities.

    Lazy, lazy, lazy.

  2. This is one of the most disgusting miner-behaviors of all. Blatantly exploiting the invaluable services the New Order provides.

    I really hope the next episode will reveal that the miner just had a bad day, but after a deep and careful study of The Code she'll see the value of the agents's work. Then she repents her sins and live happily ever after in the loving domain of The Saviour.

    Praise James! \o/

  22. 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?

  26. 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.


    Minerbumping.com 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.

  27. "A governmental police force" Well we seen that before and it never worked out for the public.

    "aimed at evicting from Highsec all them bums who won't hail James 315" So now he needs attention and worship from everyone. Attention whore perhaps?

    "by inflicting misery and preventing them from earning a living" Like when Nazi Germany forced the Jews into the ghettos.

    "All residents are required to display a permit and contribute 10 million ISK per year of their material wealth to the state." So taxes, but you don't get to vote on them, a revolution was fought about this once.

    "Under the New Order, society consists of three strata: the elite Agents, the loyal masses, and the squatters." Wow a repeat of a Nazi society, a hierarchy born from the idealism of an egalitarian society.

    "The loyal masses are free to run businesses as they see fit, providing that they comply with The Code." Unfortunately its hard to comply to rules that are changing on a daily basis.

    "A permit, available for the cost of a symbolic fee, just like all the other law-abiding capsuleers." A symbolic fee would be more like what Xerxees was asking for, this is actually part of a players earnings and thus not symbolic.

    "Always Elite, always outnumbered, always winning." Depends on who you ask, and certainly not elite here in the comments with the amount of swearing is done even by named agents. Winning would be a relative term, in this instance, where you are profiting but your still not getting the control your demanding.

    "Posts released to the public concentrated on certain issues: the greed of carebears; the greatness of James 315; the way of life of Agents, and how badly the noncompliant miners who squat in Highsec live." Now that does sound very familiar.
    "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." Yup that's why it sounded familiar.

  28. 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.

    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.

  30. 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.

  31. The Code of Awakening.
    1: The “Awakened” always wins.
    2: The Eve Online code has never won ever due to the fact of the tactics being used are considered by the game developers to be “illegal Ganks”.
    3: If a member of the New Order of Halaima fails to consider that they are just like suicide terrorists then they are very short sighted and must be considered criminal and unstable.
    4: Any member of the code alliance must be considered unstable, troll them online only but if met in real life stay away and call the authorities for they may be bringing their in game rage and anger out of game to harm people and children.
    5: Under no circumstances must you ever let a code agent near children.
    6: Always renounce the ways of the codes favorite agent Kalynn Shardani, they praise this agent highest due to his actions of killing his own child for the code alliance.
    7: Only under extraordinary circumstances will a member of the code become anything more than a closet terrorist, criminal, unstable, child molester, and/or greifers. Those who do make progress towards enlightenment must be monitored closely and never fully trusted as the indoctrination of James 315 is still within them and they could return to wanting to harm people in real life.
    8: Never converse with the code agent in game, they will claim it as a victory but it also serves as a way of gathering information on you which they may use to find you in real life to visit harm upon you. They will post the conversation on their website so that all the other agents may attempt to locate you and visit harm upon you and your children.
    9: Remember that a code agent does not live in reality, due to this fact they can never truly win in any engagement be it an argument or a battle.
    10: The “Awakened” shall know only victory over the code agent because the code knows only hate, pain, greed, and envy. The “Awakened” always worships life while the code agent only worships death and murder. The “Awakened” accepts and follows laws while the code will bring their delusions out of game and fail to recognize laws.
    11: A code agent will never accept reality, they cling to their fantasies with a death grip, and no agent is ever truly awakened from their delusions. Because of this they always fail at life.

    Police have closed 2nd Street and Commercial Avenue and surrounding areas.

    Police say the shooter was barricaded inside the Montage with a hostage, whom police say is safe, screaming about noncompliance of a code. Police shot at the shooter, who is alive.

  38. Being a High sec Pirate is like playing basketball against a retarded kid. You already know what the outcome will be, and the rest of us look at you like you are a jack ass. Only like minded douches buy into ganking miners, and new players.

    I'm about as carebear as they come, but I still have the stones to live in null, low, and spend time in WH space. The shit people give high sec players for never leaving can be attributed to these guys as well, the only difference is, that at least carebears don't fly around with an inflated sense of pride because they pad their kill boards with kills from people who can't fight back.

    I'm sure these are the people who play fps games against novice bots, and claim that they are l33t.

  39. Code is basically a group that likes to fight the defenseless/easy fights. Generally flying catalysts. They take their RP seriously, but are generally a bunch of annoying shmucks harassing the indie playerbase. Mostly goon alts too iirc.

    Buy a falcon, fly into a system where they're operating, start collecting tears (ganker tears have 10x the satisfaction concentration!).

  41. Ganking and extortion are valid interesting mechanics, however the fan club of these activities are typically a bunch of risk averse manbabies.

    I mean fuck they didn't even show up for the alliance tournament because they were fearful of loss and tried to play it off as meta game.

    The other piece of this though are new players making themselves easy targets by fitting inappropriately for lack of knowledge and making themselves subject to manbaby ganks. Gankers take advantage of the fact that they have incomplete knowledge. No-ware in the mining tutorial do they inform you that drones, shields and awareness are your primary tools of defense in high security space as an industry pilot. In fact dscan isn't even a thing in the tutorials.

  48. Sadly, CODE and their allies are exploiting a loophole in the game's rules that states griefing is allowed, so long as the activity is profitable.

    And James says he doesn't do this for the money, what a sack of shit without a sack.

  49. New Order (CODE and co.) agents will show you absolutely no sympathy, as they are utterly convinced that their cause is just despite their rampantly hypocritical and psychopathic behaviour. Your agony and heartbreak will be met with a condescending "calm down miner" and repeated demands for purchase of a 'permit'. If the exchange becomes particularly heated, they may take the issue further and threaten your cop with a wardec. DO NOT CONTACT YOUR ASSAILANT AND DEFINITELY DO NOT PAY THEM. New Order agents will revoke a permit at the slightest pretext (sometimes under no pretext at all), and there is no real appeals process. Any isk you give them - and whatever they destroy and steal from you upon permit revocation - will be gone. It's not worth 10mil.

  51. They are very good at warping to station, docking up, and then sperging in local about the "criminal scum" that is challenging the might of James 315.

    So, it's possible, but be prepared to just station camp a lot. They will hide there and refuse to fight. If you ship has guns, they won't attack.

  53. Suicide Gankers literally can't fight head on. Faction police will scram, jam, neut and kill them because are sec status is too low.

    Instead, they focus on attacking the targets they can kill and avoiding the ones they can't. Otherwise they would just be feeding kills to Faction Police.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Of course they won't. There's no benefit to do so. Gank pilots are often low-SP alts, meaning they can't really fly anything but a super short range, slow-as-hell gallente destroyer - which is useless in a straight fight. In addition, even if they did choose to fight, remaining on grid for more than 30 seconds causes Faction Police to spawn, which will annihilate their puny destroyer tanks.

    It's got very little to do with the fact you're trying to put up a fight, and more to do with the fact that there's literally no incentive for a ganker to do anything but gank.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Can confirm, if someone fights back, Code run and hide. It's like a retarded 10-year old punching another kid in the schoolyard; when the victim turns around to deck the kid, kid runs and climbs a tree/hides on the other side of a door and shouts incomprehensible jibberish

    ReplyDelete
  56. You can't fight CODE because they don't want fights. They will dock up as soon as something that remotely resembles a fleet shows up.

    The only fight you can win against CODE is the isk one. Example: Move to null (they are afraid of it) and do your thing there.

    ReplyDelete
  57. The problem here is that youre making CODE out to be a bigger problem than they really are. Nobody makes any resistance movement because theres nothing to resist. Ive never seen a code member, they are essentially an urban legend to me and any person who pvp's has bigger fish to fry. My advice is to either join them or move out of high sec, seriously, low, null, and wh space arent as scary as you newbies make them out to be.

    ReplyDelete
  58. James is probably some kind of sociopath to have kept minerbumping up this long. The concept was hilarious when first implemented but now is just a recurring nuisance. However this is one of the more open games and I appreciate that people are having a fun time roleplaying as Highsec crusaders of some kind.

    Everyone else in this thread has covered pretty much why any serious effort to resist CODE is doomed to failure long term. The playerbase that have the skills to do so have little inclination to.

    Tank your fits more, check local for gank alts, and don't fly like a blind idiot in hi-sec and you shouldn't lose too many ships.

  60. That's ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Why should I have to play like everyone else?

    It's not a ♥♥♥♥ing crutch. These people have trillions of ISK and can afford to just kill all the new players. There should be higher penalties for Killing in Highsec space. Currently I see no such penalties.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Actually I do have lots of support skills(combat skills) and even skills for the orca and a battlecruiser, its not that I have a problem with. It's the fact that it takes years to get anywhere, which is fine with me, but everyone starting out has a disadvantage compared to the players who have played the longest.

    I played this game when it first came out, so dont tell me about learning about it. I know how to learn, and I always knew this game was about learning, lots has changed.

    I just think its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t that you are pretty much forced into accepting some fu cktards ideologies in this game.

    How are you supposed to start your own empire if c unts are running around killing new players that dont adhere to their contrived rules?

    There should either be recourse or they need to lessen the times it takes to learn skills to be able to counter attack.

    This is practically a pay to win game. There are people who have 10's of accounts. There should be somewhat of an even playing field.

    ReplyDelete
  62. as for the ganking, there IS a problem. and thast that it isnt "high levels ganking low levels", its that its high levels giving a bunch of cash to their disposable 5 day old alts to fly a catalyst and destroy with impunity anything they desire. and with how slow/weak a mining barge is compared to literally anything a ganker can and will fly, once they decide to kill you, there is very little you can do to stop it, considering even a skiff cant tank enough to make it "unprofitable" or "unjustifiable" to gank.

    the problem would be solved however if a trial account wasnt allowed to turn their guns off green in highsec (since there woudl be no reason for a enw player to be doing pirating of that level in their first 14 days), that way if a "high level" player wants to use disposable characters without breaching the EULA, they have to pony up an extra 750mil or 20 bucks every 3 characters.

  68. There are many player groups in the game, doing various things with different objectives. Code is juste one group among others.
    Also, I don't like how they use the name and other attributes from the Eve group and pretend they have "nothing" to do with them and act offended when they're compared, like it's pure coincidence that they have the same name (all in capital letters no less) and do the exact same thing.

  82. I really enjoy playing EVE and its sense of community. I achieve satisfaction from building products and even mining. However, some areas are quite disturbing. I am talking about James 315 and the deleterious cult of CODE.

    James 315 has delusions of grandeur and his cult like ramblings remind me of Jim Jones of Jonestown infamy. Truly believing his own rhetoric that CODE are contributing to the betterment and growth of Eve.

    His naïve guileless cult like followers have all the hallmarks of religious brainwashing. It is their personal choice to follow his ramblings, but to force through threats others to carry his "all hail James 315" mantra is beyond the pale.

    Our parents told us to stand up to bullies and never bow down to false prophets. Hold firm to your sense of right and be brave in Eve.

  94. Do not let it get you down overly much, if you need some quick income at the early stages, do the starter career missions, there are in this link, http://hubpages.com/games-hobbies/Career-Arcs-Mission-Guide-Index-Eve-Online they give you a few million each, and ships and goodies too. (Tip fully insure the ship they give you when they expect you to blow up in certain clearly described training missions) When you have done those, do the sisters of eve mission arc. By the time you have done these, your skills will have improved, you have some money, and go off in whatever direction you choose. If you decide mining is something you want to do just remember, You can be ganked anywhere at any time, and some just do it for fun. Make it expensive or awkward for them, fit for tank not yield, procurer is awesome and tanky for a barge, keep moving or orbiting, and avoid areas with a lot of recent mining barge kills. Above all have fun, and good luck with your future.

  95. Their a bunch of players from various alliances like gsf and the like that go around rping. They live off tears and salt, so if you feed it to them they will target you. A few basics to dealing with them is don't be afk, use a proc if you mine around their Hotspot and have their alliance set as red so they show up in local as such. They aren't exactly the hardest to avoid and really you just have to learn to avoid them and make yourself as not a target as possible.

  104. Grandiose delusions (GD) or delusions of grandeur are a subtype of delusion that occur in patients suffering from a wide range of mental illnesses, including two-thirds of patients in manic state of bipolar disorder, half of those with schizophrenia, patients with the grandiose subtype of delusional disorder, and a substantial portion of those with substance abuse disorders.[1][2] GDs are characterized by fantastical beliefs that one is famous, omnipotent, wealthy, or otherwise very powerful. The delusions are generally fantastic and typically have a supernatural, science-fictional, or religious theme. There is a relative lack of research into GD, in contrast to persecutory delusions and auditory hallucinations. About 10% of healthy people experience grandiose thoughts but do not meet full criteria for a diagnosis of GD.[2]

    I believe that the aggression changes promote pvp in highsec, because now people can shoot you more often, you all want others to experience more risk but when you are the ones that get that risk, you scream like children. Entitled children.

    You can still pray on newbs that doesn't know aggresion mechanics, you can till can flip (need a buddy for it though). Mining barges has been easy as hell to gank for way too long and unless they sit in a procurer or skiff, they can still be ganked without too much trouble (they don't fit tank, right?).

    And until the leader of goonswarm...no let me rephrase that. the Leader of the CircleJerk that null sec has become (which is quite frankly WORSE than high sec at the moment in terms of carebearing) Stands up and proves James 315 is banned from all goonswarm servers and factions i have no reason to believe ANYTHING that's been said by him or his agents. Or that this so called new order is nothing but a crock of BS.

    While the OP gave a long thought out post and actually highlights a potential problem. The fact of the matter is this. He has no CCP authority. What he does is against concord rules. He's no Savior. In that respect he's exactly like Barrack Obama. And yes since we're going into those kind of conversations i'm going to go there.

  125. So, because mining barges and exhumers got a boost to their EHP, CCP is moving EvE in the direction of being a carebear campground themepark?

    Pull the other one, it's got bells on it.

  126. Both extremes are outta their minds-crazy sometimes to be quite frank.

    Its mostly personally/playstyle agenda driven as well and never as holistic and benevolent as "saving the game".

    Im pretty safe in saying that the majority falls in the middle where they think the game needs the balance of playstyles and offerings to be as successful and fun as it can be.

  127. "Original had gone AFK to get a beer while his Vexor's drones continued their assault of RD's corpmate's Orca."

    I thought it was against code rules to go AFK? Sounds like bot-aspirant behaviour to me.

  132. You make an insightful and thought provoking comment, but you forget where you are sir. You need to tailor your comment to your audience. For /r/eve may I suggest something more like:


    hurr-durr james315 is a fag Mintoni sucks grrr gons fuk gons

    Notice the lack of punctuation and endearing misspelling of just about every word.

  133. I used to serious post. Then I realized I got down voted more when I made posts that disagreed with popular opinion even if what I was saying was completely based in fact. Now I just don't care.

  134. Yea telling someone to kill themselves that's a ban. James needs to accept the rule of CCP or just quit

  135. When I go to bed at night I pray that CONCORD just starts firing at every barge so James can just enjoy the game and stop bitching. I mean how pathetic must one be to claim miners are dangerous?

  136. I'm not usually one for ad hominem, but I'm not going to read 20 pages worth of text by a guy notorious for writing complete garbage.

    I would read two, three, hell even five pages of text by just about anyone, but 20 pages by motherfucking James315? Screw that noise.

    ReplyDelete
  137. He even manages to find a way to bitch and whine about that. It's not enough that he got his account reinstated, he's still bent about it because his unbanning was too perfunctory. Dude seriously overestimates the degree to which other people give a shit about him and his antics. Just because you make a spectacle doesn't mean we care.

  138. CCP re-ban him pls

    ReplyDelete
  139. I would have finished it if James315 had at least pretended to be truly interested in helping EVE and not just upset because he and his cronies were banned...

    Even in the belligerent undesirables chat long time "villains" were asking: "what after Erotica1 was banned made you think that running bonus rooms was a good idea. That's just dumb."

    ReplyDelete
  140. As someone who was a part of the conversation when FJGS was starting his post-Erotica BRs, I too held the position that it was a pretty foolish idea and he was basically fishing for a ban. However, the way he went about it, focusing purely on the scam with strict rules against any form of tear harvesting, it should have been safe. There's no doubt that this is a dark time for EVE, and CCP is losing sight of their own vision.

    ReplyDelete
  141. the blatant "are you feeling harassed" way of going about it was basically thumbing their noses at CCP. It's like putting your finger in a sibling's face and saying "I'm not touching you." Mom is still going to get mad.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I think everybody involved just figured that CCP could take a little gentle ribbing like adults, and that if they avoided breaking any actual rules then they would be okay. Unfortunately for them, that turned out not to be the case.

    ReplyDelete
  143. The child who is annoying their sister probably thinks they are very smart because they are not doing what Mom told them not to do....

    This comes down to our old friend, Greed. Scammers got greedy and wanted to push at the line. It's their own fault. (I think that's how the scamming rhetoric goes)

    ReplyDelete
  144. I seriously wonder if James is being sincere when he writes these ridiculous walls of text, or if it's a dedicated effort to put on a show. Surely he realizes few people are going to wade through an article that size, especially one from him?

    Same result though; not reading.

    ReplyDelete
  145. It's all a show. Guys like this want to be the "bad guy" because it gets them attention.

    ReplyDelete
  146. It's not an ad hominem attack. It's an observational fact.

    See, a necessary part of an ad hom is that I have no evidence to support the attack. If I can justify the deduction from facts at hand, it's no longer an ad hom.

    I disagree, and I will choose what I believe to be the proper response. If you don't like that, I don't care.

    See, in my view the long winded article full of supposition and revisionism isn't a valid debate to begin with, so I have no 'proper' response. What do you say to the guy that says the end is near? How about the sky is falling?
    Right, you call them an idiot and move on.

    The PROPER way to conduct this entire thing was to write an article conveying both sides and pointing out the conflict of interest between those sides. Then the rest of us could debate the relative merits and get somewhere. (somewhere = CCP still doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks)

    But since this isn't debate class, I'm not bound by your rules any more than James 315 is bound by facts.

    In case you aren't aware, I and many others have written volumes on this subject and you are free to go look at it. We don't all agree, obviously.

    If the ultimate point here is "unban" these fine people that add content to the game. Well then I don't care and I'm done with the issue. Good luck, I hope you fail.

    If, however, the ultimate point here is "gee, CCP, your GM system is all kinds of fucked up", then lets make that a CSM issue and replace the call center jockeys with people that know and care how eve works.

    I'll start.

    The GM system for bans should be an open court, with players on the jury. (see RIOT tribunal system) Any banned player should have one free open court session to appeal their ban. PERMABANS should only be possible in egregious circumstances, and only if a super majority of the jury agrees. Call it the court of concord. Obviously you'd have to limit cases, because if certain activity is simply insta-bannable. RMT for example, or major boting (typically done together).

    With a system like that, you end up with the EVE the players WANT. I'm not certain that I would consider that an improvement, but it will at least eliminate the question of what the players actually want. Instead of just listening to the noisy few. (cough james315 cough)

  147. The Erotica crew were wrong. They knew what they were doing was wrong. CCP doesn't (and probably shouldn't frankly) have clear rules about where the boundaries of the game are and aren't. This leads to bans or perma-bans (can we really call it that if it lasts less than a year?) where people aren't sure why or what they did. The whole "I don't know what I did wrong cuz you didn't tell me exactly what I could/couldn't do" argument smacks of some extremely immature attempt at getting out of trouble, I think that excuse stopped working for me with my parents when I was like, 7.
    The Erotica crew are mad because this gray area doesn't allow for them to operate with impunity, they want clear statements as to why they were banned.
    What I got from the article was this sense and hope that if the Erotica crew's bans were explained by CCP there were would be a backlash from the EvE community akin to the monocle debacle and CCP would be forced to admit they were wrong for banning Erotica. He would be some sort of hero for reforming CCP's ways and revered/justified in what he did.
    There are a couple of things that appear from either individuals defending Erotica's actions, or in Erotica's article itself that I find disingenuous.

    ReplyDelete

    1. 1) CCP needs to explain itself and why they ban people.

      No, they don't. No it isn't some sort of gestapo regime if they refuse to do so either. This is a business. This is a private game that they run, not some democratic institution where you get a say in what they do. Nor is it a government responsible for your well being or happiness. Would it be nice if they explained the bans, at least to the banned players, perhaps. But the -only- vote you get as a consumer is if you want to play the game. If you don't, and I don't mean this in a snarky manner, don't play the game. A companies sole responsibility is to make money, if they're not doing this then they might change.

      2) We weren't wrong in what we did as we were never told that we couldn't. The variation of this is that "The alleged events, which you can't prove, occurred outside the game and therefore not subject to CCP's rule."

      Both of these stem from the same sense that the perpetrators were somehow exempt from discipline due to some combination of either lack of clarity or jurisdiction on CCP's part over where/how the events occurred. The only part I -sort of- agree with here is the jurisdiction element. Where I think though that this crossed the line is when the Teamspeak elements were used to impact entities specifically tied to the game that CCP does have jurisdiction over. The actors used CCPs property to find the victim with the intent to cause damage to the victim within the game itself.

      3) Why didn't the victims threats (and to a broader extent all those who type variations of "hope you die") get treated in the same way as either Mittani's statements years back or Erotica's?

      I think they should be. Threats shouldn't be tolerated in any sense. These individuals should be banned/suspended as well.

      4) The victim had a choice/didn't have to participate, therefor CCP has no right to ban Erotica.

      This is a tough one, and I can only say this. The intent of the Erotica crew was to harm the victim. They did this, and then they bragged about it by posting the recordings of it. They knew exactly what they were doing. They like any good con artist slowly removed the victims ability to choose. Let me say this too, they're damn good. I listened to the whole recording and they chose a target smartly, the target responded to their social conditioning in the exact way that was intended, they lied and tricked the victim to get him to where he was. So the intent to harm was there. The knowledge of the harm being done was apparent. You lied and tricked the mark into a series of blind alley choices. Yes, the victim was partly to blame for not seeing this too. But you knew exactly what you were doing the entire time. You knew it was wrong, and you reveled in it.

      This leads to my final remark.

      CCP, even if they aren't sterling here, isn't some evil organization trampling on kittens that you want people to view them as. You acted out of malice. You wanted to hurt people, you knew you were hurting someone and this is what disgusts people. Because of this, people won't flock to your banner there won't be some grand revolt.

  148. Actually I hope some of the victims share a country with some of the perpetrators and decide to go legal on their asses.

    Honestly, I have been in EvE since 2006 and some parts of its great community have become more rotten from year to year.

    I do not mind proper scams or piracy. Hell, last time a low sec gatecamp got me because of sleep induced incompetence, I paid my pod ransom, congratulated them on the well executed kill and thanked them for their service...

    Yet some people in the game these days are just showing traits of mental illness.

  149. James probably beats off furiously to his own reflection.

    The amount of autism that it takes to write 20 pages about a ban is the sum total of m3 in goods in Jita. There is not a container big enough for CODEs tears as of late. My documentation:

  150. Exactly, the real problem is that all these people who partake in questionable activities and complain about risk adverse carebears become quite carebear-ish themselves when they realize that their risking more than just pixels. They need to pull their heads out of their asses and HTFU, just like they tell so many of their targets.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Exactly. If you aren't doing something questionable in the first place, you don't care about having a hard line or a grey area, you know you aren't doing anything wrong.

    The people who want a hard line set are the people who know on some level that what they're doing is wrong, but they want to have a hard line so they can find a loophole and tell themselves what they're doing is ok. It's not about avoiding mistaken bans, it's about trying to get away with something that is likely past the line and they know it.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I don't think anyone is asking for a hard line such that they could space lawyer their way out of any repercussions with a clever argument or shading of the facts. But there needs to be some way to predict in advance whether your actions are acceptable or not. If I invite you onto my comms to sing for your pod, is that a bannable harassment?

    If not, wouldn't it be nice to at least have a list of examples from which one might draw inspiration, to get a sense of where the lines lay? So that I might say, it's ok to invite someone onto comms to sing for an in-game reward such as saving their pod, or getting isk, but only for a reasonably short period of time. That would give everyone something to go on, even if it's not a hard line that you could point at and try to lawyer about.

    I think it would also be nice to start with temporary suspensions for issues that have never arisen and aren't the subject of any public guidance (since quoting GMs is illegal for some reason.) One might use real-world language to carve out cases that should go right to perma-ban - threats of real-world violence, for example. But if there's never been any consequence to having someone sing on comms, it's a hard nut for the very first punishment to be a perma-ban without any warning or explanation.

  153. James315 is upset because he wants to be able to do what CCP falcon wont allow.

    In addition the recollection of the Erotica1/sokhar incident seems very partial according to the recollection I have of it, especially the part with the wife. And he failed to mention the repeated podding in alphaclone. So much for his credibility in his point of view about the Erotica1 copycat doing a "lighter" version of the scam, regularly asking "do you feel harassed?" to the victim, which is a clear case of GM trolling : "I did not cross the line!!!"

    With this banwave, I think CCP is pretty much saying that you just cannot do this.

    Mining Permit in high sec is a scam, savagely enforced (harassment) on those new pilots who are paying for the game development and prosperity. CCP did the right thing in showing the good example.

    And fyi, many have threatened of economy crashing because they were pulled out of the system previously and many more will claim same later. But that's just Griefer Tears
    (hahaha!) splashed out loud trying to backfire sympathies. You bunch of

  159. Mining permits are extortion

    ReplyDelete
  160. ...then why do they allow the plethora of POCOs, player-owned structures, and whatever else to exist in their space? Do all of these things exist with CODE's blessing? Does CODE enforce a tribute payment system (a tax) in order to place and operate structures in their space?

    I'm actually not [necessarily] bashing CODE here. I'm not a miner, and I've never lost anything to CODE to my knowledge. I'm simply saying, you don't truly 'own' highsec... unless and until you actually, well, 'own' it. So if structures and whatever else exist in highsec without your blessing, I would say to CODE - 'get to work.' Start enforcing your will. Back up your claims of highsec ownership. Then my hat will be off to you. Otherwise... not so much.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Attacking player-owned structures requires a wardec. Which costs money. CODE is cheap

    ReplyDelete
  162. Seems strange that an owner of space would not charge for using that space. How many null sec corps or alliances allow people to squat in their space? You either control a space, or you don't, right?

    ReplyDelete
  163. CODE doesn't control high-sec. They're not even renters. They're glorified tourists roaming around selling 'maps to the stars'.

    ReplyDelete
  164. As bizarre as it sounds there are people who actually buy into all that Code malarky. But once you figure out the right ships with the right fit then Code killing is about like killing belt rats, just needs a touch more finesse.

    ReplyDelete
  165. About once a week, someone in CODE will decide the attention-o-meter is getting on the empty side, and they'll make a thread talking about CODE, and about a billion dumbasses will run up in it, all tripping all over themselves to talk about how uninterested in CODE they are.

    I wish CODE would stop, but that probably won't happen until CCP declares CODE threads like AFK Cloaker threads. More than enough examples of how this entire thread will play out are available to be searched on the forms. At some point, it is okay to stop having the same conversation over and over and over again.
