The New Order is famous for its brilliance, its creativity, and its genius.
...And then there's that other group:
Welcome to the Anti-Ganking channel.
Kruxer was curious if CCP ever got around to nerfing bumping, which they promised to do quite some time ago. For once, CCP's laziness and the lack of devs assigned to EVE worked in our favor; bumping has remained unchanged. But no sooner did Kruxer ask his question than the conversation was derailed by paranoia.
Of course, some paranoia is justified. Our Agents are everywhere.
Nevertheless, the Anti-Gankers are a suspicious bunch. Since they're unable to defeat the New Order, they spend most of their time squabbling with each other.
Anti-Gankers routinely accuse each other of all sorts of things, including a lack of ideological purity. It is a truly toxic environment.
Nick Croft freely admitted that the organization's campaign to end freighter ganking has utterly failed. A failure, frankly, that's inexcusable, given the fact that it's always obvious when a freighter is about to be ganked. While a miner ganker may conceal his intended target, a bumped freighter with a massive gank fleet in system should be easy to spot--even for an Anti-Ganker.
Self-proclaimed AG "leader" Thomas en Chasteaux stepped in, hoping to cheer up his dispirited comrades.
It's not easy to be an Anti-Ganker these days. Just last month, over 100 freighters and 42 jump freighters were killed by CODE., a powerful and thousands-strong nullsec bloc. Where was Anti-Ganking during all of this carnage, you ask?
...Most likely they were huddled in their channel, sharing excuses and bitterness.
For a moment, the rebels seemed content to whine about game mechanics and the institutional advantages of CODE., but they soon reverted to form. They couldn't resist quarreling with each other.
Anti-Gankers are only capable of engaging in fights that aren't worth fighting. Can you follow this conversation? If so, you're doing better than its participants.
The poisonous atmosphere of the Anti-Ganking channel threatened to alienate some of the group's few remaining members. Could they put aside their differences, rally together, and find a way to defeat the New Order?
