One of the things that makes highsec unique in EVE: It has citizens.
Those who aspire to greatness know that they must cast off any and all traces of carebearism. Enforcing the Code brings out the best in a man; buying shares in the New Order isn't a bad thing, either.
Madame Mia joined our shareholders with a purchase of precisely 1,000 shares of New Order stock. And so we reached another milestone, the 1,878 billion isk mark. Madame, enjoy your Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.
All eyes look toward the two trillion isk mark--it's not so very far!
A riddle for you, dear reader. Imagine that you are a rebellious anti-Code miner. You have just been ganked. What do you do?
(A) Whine about being a defenseless new player.
(B) Pretend to be someone important and threaten to call in powerful friends from nullsec.
(C) All of the above.
Spoiler: Nothing happened. Actually, to be fair, there was one attempt at retaliation...
Alas, the miner's "main" had neither an alliance nor "PvP players" to call upon.
The Code continues to conquer highsec uncontested.
