The Snake

In EVE, it is said, you should never trust anyone--except an Agent of the New Order. When isk4trade went running around in a Rattlesnake under an active kill right, he ended up getting himself captured and held for ransom. Given the value of his ship, he felt he had no choice but to hand over the money.


He was killed anyway. Thanks to the kill right, Agents medsouz, Tuomas Arturi, and Instated One were permitted to destroy the Rattlesnake without CONCORD's intervention.
isk4trade > i DONT GAF
Krig Povelli > http://www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
Krig Povelli > You need a permit to mine in our territory
Krig Povelli > Praise James \o/
medsouz > Praise James \o/
Agent Krig Povelli wasn't able to join in on the kill, but he was there for the aftermath.
isk4trade > HONEST PIRATES MY ASS
Krig Povelli > Calm down, miner
isk4trade > Krig Povelli i PAID YOU Krig Povelli
Krig Povelli > Yes, I saw that
isk4trade > WAHT YOU ASKED
isk4trade > AND YOU DINT HONOUR SHIT
The carebear was furious. He felt he'd been scammed. Though scamming is common in EVE, he certainly didn't expect to be ripped off by a duly authorized Code enforcer.
Krig Povelli > Thanks? You were supposed to pay Tuomas Arturi
isk4trade > YOU SPOKE LAST TIME i THOUGH YOU WERE THE BOSS
isk4trade > YOU ARE JUST PLAYING GAMES
isk4trade > YOU GONNA HONOUR THAT LIKE OUR DEAL ABOUT MY SNAKE ?
Tuomas Arturi > u should have paid me Krig just got bac
At first, it might seem as though an Agent actually did scam someone. The "victim" always makes it seem that way--until all the facts come in.


In fact, Tuomas Arturi owned the kill right that had been used. And it was he who had the right to be paid the ransom. isk4trade made a ransom payment without following the instructions, and we all know how that sort of thing plays out.
isk4trade > right I mine in a snake
Krig Povelli > Not anymore
isk4trade > I never did
isk4trade > you never saw anything that canmine on that thing
isk4trade > you all just full of shit
isk4trade was quickly losing faith not only in Agent Krig Povelli, but in the entire system of highsec law.
isk4trade > you will ask for more and more and more
Krig Povelli > Please watch your language
isk4trade > what do you expect ?
isk4trade > you take my 45o mil ... pretend to go take a crap then blow me up then ask for more and on and on and on
Krig Povelli > I expect you to calm down and follow the rules
Most people assume that highsec carebears are a bunch of children with impulse-control problems. Our Agents hold them to a higher standard than that.
Krig Povelli > And mining permits are only 10 mil.
isk4trade > I was NOT mining sir
isk4trade > what does a mining permit have to do with that ?
Krig Povelli > You are operating in New Order territory
isk4trade > you took my 650 mil still destroyed my snake and asking for more ?
Although isk4trade had already paid 450 million isk (or was it 650 mill?), he still owed Agent Krig a debt of 10 million. The miner balked. That would be throwing good money after bad.
Krig Povelli > Permits are 10 mil. ISK and last for one year
isk4trade > and I was not mining
isk4trade > I had no mining gear
isk4trade > NONE
Krig Povelli > Cogitation Mining and Industrial Trading I rest my case
Though isk4trade refused to admit to mining, he belonged to a corporation with "mining" in its name. A corporation, by the way, that he'd belonged to for over 7 years. Oops!
isk4trade > and you want me to believe I give you 10 mil and you leave the whole corp alone for a year ?
Krig Povelli > 10 mil. ISK per character
isk4trade > and you will honor that like this rattlesnake deal ?
Krig Povelli > You didn't pay Toumas
isk4trade > you just splitting hairs ....
isk4trade > jerking me around
For the briefest moment, isk4trade actually contemplated purchasing a permit. After all, what was 10 million isk compared to the ransom and the Rattlesnake?
isk4trade > we have exactly 20 members
Krig Povelli > So that is 200 mil. if you want a permit for each of them
isk4trade > If I pay you ... who is to say someone else is going to say I should have paid THEM ?
Krig Povelli > I will give you the permit info to put in your BIO for each toon
As our Agent explained, 10 million isk wouldn't cover everyone in the corp. Now isk4trade was looking at a 200 million isk price tag. Every instinct told him not to pay it.
isk4trade > 20 permits ?
Krig Povelli > Yes
isk4trade > and who do I pay this time ?
Krig Povelli > Just to me
isk4trade > you sure
Krig Povelli > Yes
Krig Povelli > Krig Povelli
Then again, if he did pay, at least this time there wouldn't be any confusion about the designated recipient of the isk.
isk4trade > man oh man you are a ruthless trickster I will give you that
isk4trade > DONE
Krig Povelli > I will send you the permit info
isk4trade > to help you advertise I guess
The carebear sighed and opened his wallet. It's a familiar-sounding sigh.


Until every man, woman, and child in highsec obeys the Code, those sighs will continue to echo throughout New Order territory.
isk4trade > now canyou leave me alone to have a heart attack now? I am honest to god 67 years old IRL
isk4trade > if you screw us over .... I will go on SUCH a campaign to make sure every player on EVE knows that your permits are useless .... I promise!
Krig Povelli > http://www.minerbumping.com/p/the-code.html
Krig Povelli > ^Make sure you read the Code
Krig Povelli > And follow it
Rebels and skeptics like to say that a New Order mining permit is useless. Their smear campaign doesn't stop people from buying them, though.
isk4trade > I hear you .... make sure you live up to your promises
isk4trade > I havent had time to have a PISS
isk4trade > leave me the hell alone for a bit ?????
Krig Povelli > You have my permission to use the bathroom
Nevertheless, as we all know, the purchase of a mining permit is but the first necessary step toward compliance. We can only hope that a new permit-holder is smart enough to continue walking the path.

    Their hypocritical nature know no bounds, much like their Beggar King.

    1. Missing:
      *Your Mining Permit
      *anti-ganking PVP skills
      *Evidence that any of that happened (protip: we post TS soundcloud recordings if they happen)
      *Readers of the hisec militia blog that no one reads

    2. If he made it to 67 then he should be smart enough NOT to give money to the wrong entity. When you need a Driving Permit you don't pay the Electric Company.

      Carebears are so lulzy.


      Get some skillz or gtfo, EVE don't need shitters.

    3. THIS JUST IN! ALSO MISSING! AMBER ALERT!!!:
      THE ISK THAT WAS STOLEN BY AG PLEB LEADER THOMAS EN CHASTEAUX! OVER 100 BILLION ISK! Where did it go?

    4. Thomas is a CODE. lackey and deep cover plant. The ISK is already in the gankers wallets.

  2. What?!! No mention of the Bathroom Rule James put in to prevent these arguements.....I see a license revoking in the near future.

  3. Pay ransom, lose RS, lose pod, then proceed to pay 200M in mining permits while still complaining in local about the whole ordeal. I don't see how this could end badly for the miner!

    1. It seems like he's getting exactly what he needs.

  4. That miner is another example of a highsec shitter buying a permit ONLY because he's conflict-adverse and wants to hide behind a fa├žade of "safety". He should be hunted down and ganked until he is ready to purchase a permit for the correct reasons.

    Those 20 permits were a waste of time. I'm not saying don't take his money, but he should be brought to heel until he fully appreciates what it means to be a citizen of James' civilized highsec. It is against the Code to allow even the appearance of bot-aspirancy, and hiding in hihsec, even with a permit, is bot-aspirant. And anti-EVE.

    He is either with us or against us, there can be no debate, no grey area. Until he abandons his bot-aspirancy he cannot be truly Code complint. EVE must be protected from the cancer that is carebearism and the Code makes it clear how to deal with that: Kill all miners and kill 'em daily.

    Always!

    2. Thanks for the bingo squares, shitteranon305. You are easily triggered, and probably not too smart.

  7. I don't know, a name like isk4trade screams bot aspirant to me. Maybe there will get an unexpected revisit of this particular CEO/corp? One can only hope.
