Un-neccessary and or illeagle ganking in High Sec

First post

You folks have a group of individuals in game that refer to something they call "the CODE". Now what these folks like to do is gank mainly industry and mining ships without warning and then proceed to tell you that you were in violation of their code. They then demand 10 million ISK per pilot, per year for them to leave you alone provided that you do not violate another of their rules as they deem suitable to their needs. They come off sounding like religious zealots. Quoting there leaders name that I cant mention in this forum they feel they are completely justified in their harassing behaviour toward other pilots and claim that high sec is entirely their property with out regard to anyone but themselves. Now if they were in low or null sec I could understand their position, but they are not, they operate exclusively in high sec. They claim they are making high sec a better place for everyone in game and I don't believe that. The problem being that they are making high sec just as dangerous as low sec or null sec. The next point is, What is the purpose of concord when these folks do what they please? They don't care if they get blown up which makes them even more dangerous.
Thank you for your help.

CCP has given the wrong doers all the power anymore and the peaceful people are given no regard whatsoever. This is what is unacceptable. You must give the peaceful people some regard. It is only fair. The answer you just gave me is a carbon copy of the exact same answer you have given several other people in game. Now while logging in everyday I have noticed that the number of people that log in is steadily declining. How long are you going to sit on your hands and let the bad guys and gals have all the fun and drive out all the good players. Depending on the outcome of this conversation CCP is going to lose even more players due to their unwillingness to help out. Your constant quote of "Due to the sandbox nature of the game" is no longer acceptable nor is it even relavent to the players that literally suffer at the hands of the GANKERS. According to your own rules, which I have read, this behavior is unacceptable, and the offending players will be spoken to and or banned depending on their attitude toward you folks. Just once I would like to see the GM's and CCP abide to their own rules. I have been in this game for many years and there is no other game like it. My friends and I have put up with many changes in game, some good some bad. and yet we stayed. The situation has now become intolerable with the allowance of these ganker gangs, that needs to be addressed. The complacent attitude you and your other GM's have taken is costing CCP revenue. In actual fact, I would like to speak with somebody that is a part of CCP management. Although I doubt that will ever happen. The peaceful players of this game are BEGGING for mercy. There is just too much evil transpiring in game anymore. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE help. My friends and I love this game and really don't want to leave it, but if nothing is done we must leave. I for one come into game to relax, but lately the game is no longer relaxing, it has become extremely taxing on the people. Again I beg you to please help, otherwise we are going to leave.
Thank You for hearing me out.

Yeah, this really needed yet another thread, considering that there's already a thread about exactly the same thing on the first page of this subforum.

It's allowed, it's within the rules, deal with it.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

This is crappy analogy but it's all I got.

Fire up your favorite Battlefield or Call of Duty game. Join a multiplayer match. Now, ****, moan, whine, complain and act surprised when someone shoots you in the face.

Now that we have that out of the way, on suicide ganking.

Code has been around for quite a while and they aren't trying to keep themselves secret. These forums are filled with hundreds of post on how to avoid suicide ganking ( which in most cases is trivially easy ). If you're to lazy to search threads, convo a Code member. Once you get past that whole "permit thing", quite a few of those agents will actually tell you how to avoid them.

I don't feel like writing a how-to guide on safely mining or hauling so I'll suggest something else. Fit out a ship, head to Uedama and go shoot some Codies. They're flashy and not well liked so concorde doesn't mind. You might find it more satisfying than shedding tears on the forums.

Pleas don't take everything to serious. It's a game. But here is my advice.
Almost every question that you have and lot of the problems that you might have are discussed in the forum in the last 12 years. Please take a search first. And when you really can't find it. CONGRATULATION. You have found something that maybe nobody has seen before. Then please let us know, what we have missed. ;-)

Hi tase. In my opinion, not following the code is a crime.

You should calm down and listen to the words of the Saviour of High Sec! It will not only enlighten you, it also will make you a better EVE Player!

Hi Tase,

Are you coming here to offer me an apology for screaming at me on comms?

Thank you for calling the CODE. Client Relations and Tear Extraction Department.

All of our Client Relations Officers are busy laughing at other callers at the moment.

Rest assured that your feedback is important to us, and the first available Client Relations Officer will laugh at you shortly.

Please enjoy this hold music while you wait. (Slightly NSFW, mild language)

P.S. The sandbox nature of the game offers plenty of opportunities for you to seek revenge, through the wardec mechanic or hiring mercenaries if that's your thing.

I support the New Order and CODE. alliance.

ouchie. is there a killmail for the webbing alt as well?
just curious. this is my dinnertime reading, so I like to get all the facts when I can.

Or... wait for it. wait for it...
Let me guess, there is not such a mail because there was no webbing alt, nor a scout that could have said 'oh, hay. there's like over 10 CODE. people in UEDAMA. I wonder what they're doing?'

Must consult my Magic 8 Ball.

Come hell or high water, this sick world will know I was here.

Should have bought a permit, should have fitted bulkheads, should have had some friends for support....
OP you got off lightly considering you failed to take common sense steps to protect your ship.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Peace is in the hands of those who can enforce it.

You are not them.

New Eden isn't nice. It isn't friendly. It isn't very hospitiable. Good thing there are people here to shoot in the face.

Want to make New Eden a nice place? Try this out.

Starting to feel like starting a thread about unnecessary and illegal walls of text!

But I found it entertaining once I waded through it. 6/10

Whoa...hey now. Not all of Code. are gankers. Perhaps you need a lesson on what Eve is and what a spaceship combat game is all about. With all due respect, whine somewhere else please. If you can't handle what Eve is, you're playing the wrong game. Don't be angry because others are having fun and you're not. It's a game. Play it Twisted

Also..since Code. doesn't do "real PvP" ...come visit me sometime..I'd be happy to prove you wrong Blink

If I had a nickel for every time someone said women don't play eve, I'd have a bag of nickels to whack the next person who said it..
