You Can Take the Miner Out of Highsec

Highsec miners try to take heat off of themselves by encouraging our Agents to go and kill the miners out in nullsec. On occasion, our Agents do just that.


Agent hellyeaz enjoys shooting nullsec miners for target practice. It's casual and relaxing. Unlike the elite endgame PvP that is highsec ganking, there's no CONCORD or faction police to deal with. hellyeaz eliminated Nova Echerie212's Retriever, which was mining in a busy system controlled by Pandemic Horde.


Even though he lived in Geminate, Nova's highsec roots showed.


When Nova noticed that hellyeaz was still in local, he was no longer content with writing EVEmails. The miner didn't seem to care that local was also being monitored by a large number of his fellow alliance members. His rage flowed freely.


Oh, I get it. This is going to be a running joke.


Pandemic Horde miners don't like being used for target practice. Still, Nova's attitude stood out as particularly toxic. If he lived in highsec, he'd fit right in among the rebels.


Now the miner was faced with a dilemma. A highsec carebear in his position would invoke powerful friends in nullsec. He might threaten to call in a fleet from Geminate. But this miner was already in Geminate, along with the Agent who'd ganked him.


The solution was to invoke reinforcements, as it were, from outside EVE itself. "I make more money than you do" is the equivalent of a highsec miner claiming to have an important alt in nullsec.


Nova was an isk-grinder, through and through. Granted, it might not be very productive to spend one's day mining in a fail-fit Retriever. But what little money Nova did make, he would hoard.


hellyeaz practiced his mining permit sales technique. Nova balked at the 10 million isk price tag, though he claimed to be wealthy.


When questioned, Nova confirmed that he had plenty of money for PLEX. Indeed, he could comfortably buy trillions of isk. But he preferred to make his money by spending hours cycling a pair of tech I Strip Miners.


Still sore about the loss of his precious Retriever, Nova nevertheless declared himself a winner. Our Agent knew better. Though anyone can waste away the days, mining and imagining they'll own a beachfront mansion "someday", reality cannot be moved: There is no victory without the Code.

  5. So the 15 minute timer after a gank is there to give us time to flip our burgers between ganks?

  6. So, what made supersaltyNova think his RL income has any bearing on his being ganked nd acting like a shitter? Jeezus carebears, if you make that much money IRL you have no excuse for mining, just drop a plex and fly pewpew.

    Oh yea, he's gonna retire early on the money he saves by mining in his off time....

  7. I don't think I'd want someone with such a short fuse as this chap anywhere near a maternity unit. Imagine he has a flashback to the loss of that wretched Retriever?

    More Pethidine, Ma'am? ��

    1. Imagine the first person you see when born, an angry miner carebear. A truly terrifying thought, luckily it's obvious that he is talking out his ass.

    2. It's funny how a person who is supposedly getting paid for administering sedatives has such a big problem to calm down.

      As our Saviour recently observed: you can take the miner out of HiSec, but you can't take the HiSec out of the miner.

  8. Now up over 2 billion in ISK this month, all from mining in various high security systems. And most of the time I was either watching NCAA basketball games or Netlix while mining.

    Not a CHODE. slave to be seen. More proof of their almost total irrelevance to the vast majority of EO players.

    1. Sounds awesome. So much isk, and yet you spend your time watching TV instead of playing the game. Almost, dare I say it, like a bot?

      Delete
    2. Yep. Playing the game my way. After all I'm paying the subscription fee, not Jamey or his CHODE. slaves.

      Such is the nature of the sandbox.

    3. Whoa, 2 billion ISK already? Looking forward to that beachfront mansion one day, eh, miner? :)

  9. Amazing work Hellyeaz, I was creasing at this story!

  10. One retriever: 30m ISK.
    A nullsec miner publicly losing his dignity in front of his alliance: priceless.
    Pandemic Horde's executor Gobbins has publicly described the alliance's recruiting strategy as clicking 'accept' sooner than the other alliances. It shows.

    BTW the way Goonswarm isn’t Eve Online nor are they the representatives of CCP in any manner so its Pets can stop trying to run the forums as if they are policing the forums to ensure new doctrine isn’t talked about that would undermine Goonswarm trying to keep other players from posting on the forums as if they were part of Goonswarm, who aren’t allowed to post on the forums.

    1. I think our Goon overlords are doing a great job. They make sure run-on sentence doctrine is specifically forbidden.
      If you have a problem with the forums you could try writing about it on the hisec militia blog that no one reads.

    2. Dryson is salty that his forum thread about miners defensively pulling CONCORD to the belt got derailed. https://forums.eveonline.com/t/nrds-compliant-anti-gank-permit/65841/6
