Code Ready Gelhan, Part 41

Previously, on MinerBumping... The Gelhan system used to be a stronghold of the Mission Ready Mining corp. Now it was in flames, beset by the New Order and The Marmite Collective. Without warning, an x-factor introduced itself into the already complicated Gelhan situation: HoleySheet1, a conspiracy theorist determined to tangle with Gai Heiyuu, MRM's CEO.


Our Agents entered Gelhan when the argument between Gai and HoleySheet1 was already in progress. Apparently Gai copy-pasted something he'd said earlier, for emphasis.


HoleySheet1 had no love for Marmite leader Tora Bushido, but he could see that MRM was being routed by Tora's forces. Gai tried to morale-post in local as best he could.


Agent Georgia B Dixie wasn't interested in all the politics. She sought refuge in the simple truths of the Code. And today the truth was that Georgia didn't feel like allowing a freighter to move through the system. So she continually bumped it.


Though the freighter pilot was a neutral (unless she was an MRM alt), Georgia's bumping attracted a lot of attention from the usual suspects. A squad of destroyers began following her around. They targeted Georgia, but as usual, they didn't dare open fire.


In Georgia's eyes, the freighter pilot's plight was a teachable moment. Luckily, our Agent is an excellent teacher.


Another day in Gelhan: Everything revolved around our Agent and what she chose to say and do. She dictated the action entirely. This is what it means to be a member of the New Order.


The members of MRM would much rather have spent their days mining AFK and such. Instead, they were forced to react to Georgia and the Code.


We've seen carebears claim to have powerful friends in nullsec. Others hint at secret connections in CCP. But the most ambitious miners of all are those who suggest that they know the Saviour of Highsec himself.


Without realizing it, the anti-Code rebels themselves effectively admit that I wield the most extraordinary influence over EVE. On this point, at least, they're not wrong. The history of EVE is neatly divided into the Code and pre-Code eras.


On any given day, countless carebears beg CCP to nerf ganking and wardecs. If you want a miner to say something nice about ganking or wardecs, bump them.


In a few lines, Agent Georgia elegantly stated one of the most powerful truths in EVE: Agents enjoy the game; carebears do not. Is it any wonder that we're winning and they're losing?


At last, the rebels backed themselves into a rhetorical corner from which there was no escape: The only way to deal with a bumper is to run far, far away. Was MRM ready to cede Gelhan to the New Order?

To be continued...

  5. James, normally I support you all the way, but comparing Holey to conspiracy nutjobs is horrible. Please apologize to the conspiracy nutjobs. Please. They don't deserve this.

      What was that again, dead man? Oh, and if you run fast enough, you may be able to scoop up your innards and sew your belly back up again. Better run fast, tho.

  7. Georgia B Dixie says The New Order is fun. Dixie is right.
    It is easy to start solo ganking. It is even more fun to gank with other gankers. Apply to the New Order Logistics or talk to their recruiters and they will tell you what you need to do to join CODE.. Just contact Lewak, Liek DarZ or Minx Mattel and they will help you.

    1. I would stay anonymous when trying to recruit from the comments section of the blog.

      But im not a beggar who grabs hold of other peoples pockets.

      How embarrassing.

    2. Calm down miner. That 10 mil we charge for your mining permit is for your benefit. It helps you wrap your little miner mind around the concept of Code compliance.

  8. Last weekend I make several hundred million ISK mining in various high security systems, all while also watching the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.

    Not a CHODE. slave to be seen. They are truly irrelevant to the vast majority of EO high security denizens.
