Previously, on MinerBumping... Javar Miromme's attempts at Anti-Ganking produced nothing but failure. When Javar idled by a Uedama stargate in his prized Ashimmu, he was ganked himself. One of the gankers, Agent Trump The King, became the target of Javar's fury.
Javar returned to Uedama in a gank Catalyst. Apparently he intended to counter-gank our heroes. Instead, he was killed again, this time by Agent Harletta Quinn. You might say Javar was counter-counter-ganked.
It was interesting that Javar had shown up in a gank Catalyst. It was as if he thought to himself, "Those gents from the mighty CODE. alliance make it look so easy. I must learn from them."
...On the other hand, Javar hadn't learned very much so far. He cursed the Code enforcers for having so many friends.
Agent Trump reminded Javar about the round of elite PvP they'd enjoyed earlier that day. It didn't cheer him up.
Javar openly confessed his treason in Uedama local chat. He really thought he could defeat the New Order with a Catalyst.
Unable to win at EVE, the rebel concluded that EVE must be broken. EVE certainly has its flaws, but allowing people like Trump The King to display their elite PvP prowess is not one of them. It is the Anti-Gankers who are broken.
The rebel claimed that he was offended by the unethical acts of griefing committed by our Agents. And yet, earlier, Javar had made comments hinting at the envy he felt toward these same Code enforcers. "I could be as successful as those New Order people," says the rebel, "...if only I were not so righteous."
Over the next few weeks, a curious thing happened. Javar's killboard underwent some changes. He was losing Catalysts and rookie ships, and...
...assisting on freighter ganks?
Eventually, Javar also began solo ganking highsec miners. As a result, his security status plummeted. What was going on here?
Actually, what happened here is easy to understand. Javar Miromme experienced a moment of genuine honesty and introspection. He didn't hate the gankers like he'd thought he did--like the rebels had always encouraged him to. No, watching the gankers win victories every day made him realize that he wasn't happy as a carebear and a Code violator (people never are).
By contrast, the Agents of the New Order always seemed to enjoy themselves. With these things in mind, there was only one rational course of action for Javar: He bought a permit, picked up a Catalyst, and enforced the Code.
A timely lesson for all the remaining rebels out there.
