Over Two Trillion Twenty-One Billion in Shares Sold

I often speak of New Order shares and the diversity of motives behind our noble shareholders' purchase of them. Here's another good reason to buy shares: the calendar.

Hello! zyk0 upgraded his holdings with a purchase of 10,000 additional shares. This sent us past the 2,010, 2,011, 2,012, 2,013, 2,014, 2,015, 2,016, 2,017, 2,018, and 2,019 billion isk marks and earned zyk0 the esteem of a Decuple Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.

zyk0 is right, by the way--it's going to be a big decade for the New Order.

As you can see, Aiko Danuja thought carefully before purchasing 1,000 additional shares in the name of James 315; 'twas no spur of the moment thing. I say "additional shares" because, as perhaps few people know, Leia Jadesol previously gifted me 315 shares many moons ago.

Aiko's purchase in my name sent us past the 2,020 billion isk mark and...

Wait, can I give a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ to myself? Yes, with the aid of a well-polished mirror, I do believe I can: A Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ to the Supreme Protector. Theory checks out.

Aiko made some other unorthodox purchases this week, including a purchase on behalf of "chamomile tea" for 315 shares, which happened to take us past the 2,021 billion isk mark and earned the famously calming drink a Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™.


I don't often get Korean tearmails, but this one translates roughly to "Don't mess with Eve Don't bully the newbies". The assertion here is absurd. In point of fact, there is no evidence that the New Order picks on new players. Quite the opposite: Newbies who obey the Code are no more likely to be ganked than old players who obey the Code. And those who disobey the Code are doomed regardless of their age.

Some additional backstory behind gank recipient sanvely's tearmail was revealed with the aid of Agent Aiko, who forwarded me a link to a Twitch stream:

The streamer almost sent me a profane EVEmail before sending her outrageous accusations of newbie-bullying instead. Alas, we have no Korean translation of the Code to give her. In this era of Pearl Abyss, acquiring such a translation from a fluent Korean speaker must become a higher priority.


  1. Korea has computers, or is it just the one?

  2. I would like to welcome our new Korean Game Masters.

  3. I was watching that when it happened, even though I don't understand Korean - because girl in cat ears. Anyway, it was great. Her fans will replace the loss.

  4. I don't understand the allure of streaming mining, or the simpletons who watch streamers mine. Lowest common denominator type shit right there.

    I mean, what kind of dumbass thinks streaming mining, or watching someone else mine, is entertaining in the least? Low I.Q.

    I do understand the Agents who seek out EVE streamers to punish though. That part seems perfectly natural. As it should be.

  5. Damn Cryptorchid you still talking about me your one salty eunuch.

  6. Well, apparently you know know he's talking about you.

  7. A T1 battlecruiser with fittings totaling near 12x its hull value? That's the definition of flying what you can't afford to lose. But the wallet warrior can always spare more to replace it. It's the destruction of gulls like her that keeps this F2P game's servers online. Keep up the carnage.

    1. The only K-pop i am prepared to listen to is it's hull imploding.

      Never forget K-Shardani.

  8. Still no google police

    Still not 200 you twat

    And that smile is jacked, boy! You need veneers or something

  9. nah i'm good who would I be trying to impress? you? XD

  10. Someone should donate 1000 shares in the name of - A Supreme Protector's Tip of the Hat™ - for some pleasant meta-tipping action.

  11. I still giggle that the chinese miners refer to the saviour as the great landlord.

    I wonder what the korean miners interpretation will be?

    Go forth and gank a korean miner.

    And another 5 russians and some whiny beta male american miners for good measure.

    And for desert go and gank greer in his venture again so he cries 200 posts a day.

    The perfect recipe for pleb tea.

    1. aww look at this XD man did I get under yalls skin XD

  12. awww look at how brave your being XD
