Previously, on MinerBumping... Solomon Iskander lost billions when he failed a courier contract due to his hauler getting ganked. Solomon reported to the MinerBumping channel to rage against the Code. Eventually, however, his desire to get reimbursement isk led him to buy a couple of mining permits.
Despite purchasing some mining permits, Solomon's attitude was not improved. In fact, he seemed put out by the whole thing.
As always, our Agents attempted to create a happy, positive environment. The moody miner wasn't very receptive, however.
One of the problems faced by the carebear was his lack of faith in the New Order and its Code. He was willing to buy permits, but it was as though he expected to be scammed. He could imagine nothing but bad things happening to him--yet all he could do about it was complain.
Mining permits are extremely effective at filtering highsec minerdom. Good miners are happy when they buy a permit. Bad miners only get grumpier.
Guess which kind of miner Solomon was?
Our Agents were astonished by Solomon's undignified and passive-aggressive behavior. Didn't he care about the effect that his tantrum was having on new players?
Now that he had some permits to his name, Solomon felt he was in a good position to pen a lengthy reimbursement request to the Saviour of Highsec. As recounted in the latest edition of the Highsec Miner Grab Bag, Solomon's request was denied at the last second because he made the mistake of displaying anti-Code material in his bio.
Solomon sent out his reimbursement mail and waited for a reply. He remained in the MinerBumping channel--and continued to sulk.
Against all odds, the miner was as cantankerous as ever. Nothing could cheer him up. Perhaps his mind was preoccupied with thoughts of isk. But this would mean that Solomon was a bot-aspirant.
And just like that, he was gone.
And just like that, he was back.
Suddenly, Agent Lewak got an idea: Killing miners always cheered him up, so maybe Solomon's mood could be improved by ganking a miner?
Unfortunately, Solomon chose not to join our Agents on a gank party. Instead, he attempted to resume his illegal hauling activities. This time he used a fail-fit cruiser. Less than an hour later, he was ganked by the same Agents who had killed his hauler--and in the same location. Billions more were lost. A few days later, Solomon suffered a baffling Orca loss when he inexplicably picked a fight with a battlecruiser in Dodixie.
After everything he'd experienced, Solomon still craved isk. As for his reimbursement request...
Let's just say it's not looking good.
I am attempting to even but I cannot.ReplyDelete
he was a confusing person.Delete
Is "Thanksgiving" that time where we celebrate getting rid of Americans? Or is that "Independance Day"?ReplyDelete
I'm going to use this occasion to say thanks to James 315 and the Agents for The Code and the great work they keep doing in highsec!Delete
I just threw up a bit.Delete
When you lose faith in the CODE, the CODE loses faith in YOU!ReplyDelete
Everything he got, he deserved. He alone allowed this to happen.ReplyDelete
You mean a mining corp in eve.ReplyDelete
Mr. Iskander tried to cheat James, smuggling billions of isk in illicit contraband.ReplyDelete
Rage against the CODE.ReplyDelete
That sounds like a hit song or a viral youtube video.
How many views that would generate would be immeasurable.
If only anti ganking could generate enough traffic to have some funds from those penis enlargement ads they have.
When he accepted our courier contract, we knew he would die, but we didn't expect him to accept another one!ReplyDelete
code is fundamentally a scam. It scams its members and scams unwary new players. Compare it to Scientology and see how it ticks all the same boxes. Its a scam in a game but a scam no less. Just like a real world cult/scam some members become completely deluded.ReplyDelete
James 315 always reimbursed all ships I lost in a Code compliant manner. Therefore it cannot be a scam.Delete
James 315 also explicitly stated The Code is not a cult. As He embodies perfection and His very word defines what is true and right, only an irredeemable goblok would think it's a cult.
Sounds like you're ready to drink the Kool Aid.Delete
Going meta for a moment it seems that working the scam and cult angle gets the best responses out of the faithful.
It gets the best response from triggered shitters that show up here crying about cults, in an mmoRPG...Delete
Gratz, you were baited on a free ______!
More than just a scam.Delete
"But there is also another kind, the destroyer. They are a variant of the desire to have power. While some want power to create something that exalts them, others find the fulfillment of power by destroying everything. There can be nothing over them and in this way they give themselves over to their desires at the expense of all others. Yet lacking the courage to truly destroy all else they will focus on a select group or sub-group, be they social, political, racial, sexual, or otherwise identifiable, separate from and weaker than them. It is on this group that they will focus all of thier destructive energy, creating nothing. Lacking any restraint they will co-opt others into 'the group' and turn them against 'the other group' and proceed to display all the characteristics of sociapathic and psychopathic behaviour. Attempting to reason with them is useless. it is important to keep in mind that some individuals will not be satisfied with the common desires of humanity, instead they seek to enslave, to devour, to destroy."
- An explanation of "The Code" in EVE Online
Check the boxes for yourself.
Very nice summary of code Solomon.Delete
Something I'd like to explain is that I'm not against high-sec ganking as a type of game play. EVE is after all a combat game. What I am against is the destructive/abusive behavior towards other players some code members engage in.
With a different mindset code could make a positive contribution to the game instead of being what they are now.
The ags are out in force today. But since they're too timid to disclose even an in-game character name, their complaints are easily recognized as being motivated by simple jealousy. Achieving the stature of a Code Enforcer is inconceivable to the likes of a common bot-aspirant. The New Order is the most honourable, upstanding, hard-working, and selfless organization in the history of EVE Online. And dare I surmise that we are also an uncommonly handsome bunch? Praise James!ReplyDelete
Bingo, we have a winner. Every word you wrote shows how deep the cult has its claws into you. Follow the link below if you dare. Its not too late to free yourself.Delete
According to your logic, anyone who donates money to support a blog on patreon or medium.com or blogspot (of course), is in some kind of a cult? I guess all those twitch channels are cults as well?Delete
Wow, anon 3:48am that jump in logic is worthy of D. Trump himself. You make absolutely no sense.Delete
Professor Lawrence Lawton is the winner today for his dutiful response that managed to include many so points of cult doctrine. What a loyal little fellow he is.
Its been fun but I'm tired now and must sleep.
Timid anon chose an interesting word to describe the Saviour's witty and insightful daily reflections, when he said "claws". I suppose it's fair to say that His stories have 'hooked' me, however they are strictly nonfiction. Nobody could make this stuff up. I know because I was the protagonist in several of them. Our Saviour is a masterful interpreter of self-telling stories, which is why nobody dares criticize Him openly.Delete
God forbid you find this blog endlessly amusing, AHHHH ITS A CULT CLASSIC!!!!Delete
99% of your supported post anonymously. What does *that* say?Delete
How am I being scammed?ReplyDelete
All you have to do is follow the CODE and clear yourself of the Thetans, for a small investment of just 10 million isk, this seems like a really good deal to me.ReplyDelete
Miners seem to always think that the permit allows them to violate the CODE, like believing a driver's license allows you to drive drunk, and then you cry about the DMV being a "cult".ReplyDelete
Yes, many of them assume the permit is some bargain-priced bribe rather than a symbolic gesture of compliance. I'll bet some enterprising capsuleer could set up a hard-hearted extortion racket on the backs of these foolish miners. But that's not our role. We exist to save them.Delete
and take their isk, destroy their ships, extract their tears and be general asshats. CODE - tellin' everyone what big fuckin' martyrs they are since 2012.Delete
can you link your killmail here?Delete
Especially since you get to define the code ex post facto. By the way, thanks for the publicity. I have already received donations of ISK thanks to you. You psychopathic cultist wannabes are endlessly entertaining.Delete
Why not block anonymous posts? No more trolls to challenge the work of James.ReplyDelete
Yeah, why are anons allowed? It makes it look like the audience of this blog likes to read enraged miners!Delete
Because no miner, regardless of anonymity, can hope to challenge the Code. So why bother? It only hurts the shitter that posts the tears, he will always know who he is, and will always know he's a shitter.Delete
Anonymity is like privacy, some people will see it an a basic human right, and others will decry it because it removes their ability to attack someone personally.
When a shitter crys about anonymity, he's really saying he is mad because he cannot personally attack the people who disagree with him. He cannot dispute the argument so he wants the ability to attack the person.
Typical liberal leftist shitter. The best way to deal with them is keep posting anonymous, and calling out their low I.Q.
Says an anonymous shitposterDelete
Sorry miner, irony is not made of iron-ore. Your miner ways are insufficient for getting to the depths of it.Delete
Maybe you could buy a mining permit. I was told it brings a shred of clarity your kind so desperately needs.
If you are mad while you post tears of impotent rage on this site because you cannot separate an mmoRPG from RL then you probably shouldn't be playing EVE or reading this site.ReplyDelete
All you do when you cry here is expose yourself as an emotionally retarded shitter, all while the real EVE players laugh at you.
Creating content is the only important activity in EVE, why would you play a game that makes you mad when proper players play properly?
You don't belong in EVE, and you don't belong here if you cannot separate the game from RL.
That describes code exactly though. Unable to separate a game from reality.Delete
I have been laughing at miners since late 2011.Delete
