Is there only one way to play this game now?

Code tends to operate in a limited area. I have mined happily in an out of the way hi sec spot with no troubles.

Heck even in Otela, I rarely see CODE. They stick to their area and rarely spread out.

Don't confuse a vocal minority on the forums for a majority in game. They are not an issue to most places in high sec.

And if you are that stressed/worried, switch to mission mining. They are even less likely to probe you down and the mining will still leave you free to chase butterflies.

Uh do people actually consider code a threat? If you fit your barge around tanking 2 catalyst, you will stop 95% of the ganks in highsec. Actually being at the keyboard will probably raise that statistic to 99. If you can't adapt to **** fit catalysts being flown by 400k sp alts then I don't know what to tell you.

So a ship, sitting in space, doing literally nothing, is a massive problem?

I'll keep an eye out on this thread, but I think my question has been answered.

CODE and its allied Agents can't force you to play the game in any particular way. We can however try to compel you to adapt within the sandbox. CODE is a force within the game seeking to bend a certain segment of players to their will, much like Goonswarm is seeking to bend the players in the Delve region to ours. This game is just a cycle of influence. Take away the ability of players to influence goings-on in Highsec (i.e. the creation of a "safe space") defeats the purpose of this game.

Only CCP can force changes, and this is one that they've steadfastly refused to force. Even with all the buffs to Highsec security over the years (and there have been A LOT), they've left open enough room for gankers to adapt and keep doing their thing. It's on the miners and afkers to adapt in turn.

I've been playing Eve for years now, longer than I ever planned to. Other games grab my attention from time to time, but I always come back. One of the things that always had me coming back was the community, but that seems to be getting badly fractured. It's been a while now and these CODE people seem to be gaining numbers. They've got their supporters and their detractors.

My problem with them is two fold: They're fanatics (they exactly the same language and tactics of the Gamergate crowd, but that's another post that's just going to cause a lot of problems), and that provokes a fanatical response from those who oppose them. This doesn't ultimately help any one. But my largest problem is their utter insistence that the game be played exactly their way, and the increasing efforts they're going to make sure that Eve is only played their way.

I love the emergent gameplay that I've seen over the years. As someone whose life revolves around economics and sociology, this game never fails to be interesting. That interest is waning though. I've got a family these days. I can mine, and play with the kids at the same time. I can blow stuff up when they're asleep and I can focus more attention on things. These CODE people don't seem to want me mining, and if I'm only going to be able to shoot stuff exclusively, then I'll play other games.

It's like they're trying to turn this into League Of Legends: A game can only be played in one very specific way with a toxic community that enforces those views.


Your problem is that you are not plying the game but are AFK taking care of your children. CODE. helps you realize that you in order to play this game you have to actually be at the keyboard. You are no loss to the community because you're not part of the community while being AFK.

Stealth dual mode thread.
Anti-GG. Go ahead and launch your aGGro tropes. They will all fail.
Pro CODE. CODE. is actually shrinking in numbers and they are not as active as they were previously. Saying they are growing in numbers is a "stone soup" maneuver. in some areas of operation their activity curve is generally flat. In the highsec gank pipelines they are down.

Nice try.

Quite a small effort to help throw spanners in CODE's way of play.


Helping by sending people to not existing anti-gank groups? Perhaps you better teach him to be not AFK and how to fit his barge.

The only way to play is to have an active account.

It certainly seems like the only way to play the game is to run to the forum and cry the minute someone else does something you don't like.

You do know there are 7k+ systems, code is not everywhere, just get away from the main mining hubs, there are plently of systems in hs with lots of ore and zero people in them. Find one, mine to your hearts content.

or find a quite wormhole, get on during less play time, have yoru dscan open and be ready to run and mine till you don;t want to.

or join a null sec corp, and mine there ores in relitive safty.

or pay code's "protection money"

there i just gave you 4 ways to play. not that bloody hard

There goes DaReaper again, offering -effort- fileld solutions to people who don't want solutions, but rather 'fixes' from the pwoers that be.

If the complainers were the type who would take your advice, they'd have never been victims of CODE to begin with and wouldn't need your advice Cool

I sent him quite a bit of advice along those lines and directions to other resources.

I do believe OP to be a CODE agent, craving attention. But just in case (and why not)....

First of all, whatever your beef is with CODE, its obviously restricted to h-sec. Since I play this game as well and many more like me are rarely seen in h-sec, "game" is too broad a term. There are many ways to play this game. Your h-sec stuff is only 1 of them. As such, I find your narrow mindedness much more toxic than CODE's h-sec BS.

You can just do exactly what CODE does and do whatever you want to do without worrying how it impacts the game of somebody you don't even know.

This is only toxic to you because you label it as such. Others view the exact same thing as "fun". (I hear some of those types even have a manifest and stuff)
