CCP Shadowcat has acquired her official New Order Mining Permit while attending EVE Berlin.

Is this a good thing, demonstrating that the devs will show support for emergent groups in EVE that AREN'T EVE Uni or somerblink?

Or is CCP Shadowcat overstepping a bit, by showing partiality toward one side of a player conflict?

It is always a dangerous game to show support for a certain player group.

This case however is just nothing more than having fun and relates to any fanfic or other form of fun and unique OOC sport. The article does not show favoritism to the action, or the corp, but the fact that the players went out of their way and made a real item for something they do in sport on the game.

CCP has shown the same thing for individual players and unknown people throughout the history of eve. The fact that it is in this case related to in game events does not come into a factor of...

THAT PERMIT IS COOL

It is a fine example of what I like about eve.

I do not "like" CODE. so to speak, but I can respect the play I dislike. If you guys go to fanfest, bring a printer and laminator. Work that into fanfest. "Coming to fanfest? Paid your mining permit? Get one made"

Shoot, I don't mine, but if for the isk cost of mining permits I got one, that would be fun :p

I understand that at any time, I can fall to CODE. I won't like it when I die, but if people think it is a problem, There's that wonderful ability to wardec... neither of which violates the Eula. This type of in game meta keeps things interesting and topical. Bombers Bar, although quite different in nature is something I see as being similar. When you die to the Bar, often times you were not being careful and maybe laugh about it later thinking "I deserved that".

OP reveals the nature of just having fun with these Ideas and not vilifying them because of inconvenience. Don't like? Wardec!

When one side is so clearly and obviously superior, supporting them is the impartial position.

Isn't Papers Please a reference to a game of the same title?. I just remember Scott Manley(gift)

Glory to Arstotzka. (Really hope I spelled that right)

Btw DAMN you autocorrect. Won't let me type the v*i*c*h after Manley. Keeps autocorrect it to gift. I hate not being able to turn off autocorrect on mobile. Just take away the asteriks. I mean come on, it let Arstotzka by.

This is a signature.

It has a 25m signature.

No it's not a cosmic signature.

Probably.

Btw my corp's recruiting.

That's actually a little creepy. Not sure why, just maybe the way it loops I guess.

The way I read it, a Code agent just unilaterally presented the permit card thing to Shadowcat. It's not like she bought it, or is endorsing Code. She did let Code photograph her with the permit, but what kind of normal sociable person wouldn't do that?

If they looked like that all the time, I'd buy one... and I don't mine unless I'm baitshipping.

Try actually looking at the picture. It wasn't taken at EVE Berlin. Looks to me like it was taken at a residence, which means that if she simply "let code photograph her with the permit", then the CODE. agent in question must have gone home with her (not surprising, given the charm of our agents).

But no, she's not endorsing the New Order one bit, she just tweeted a picture of herself smiling next to her mining permit (of her own volition).

It's fookin fail fake! If you look at the pic on the permit and at Shadowcat face there is nothing identical.

Just chipping in here before anything horrible starts to flare up.

While there are being various lines being toed here I would ask you please err on the side of caution and remain posting well within rules of the forums here.


Also while this will most certainly be a galvanizing thread, as is the norm with anything C.O.D.E. on our forums it seems, we would find it great if we could all avoid antagonizing other players style of play.

It's a harmless bit of fun that both sides will no doubt blow out of all proportion.

A CCP dev accepted a roleplaying gift from a player who took the time to make it. That's all there is to it. It's probably not the first time and it won't be the last.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I am truly sorry, and really hope you don't think I'm being obtuse, but...

What? Straight

Could you maybe re-word that for me? Who is it directed at?

Also, what does "antagonizing other players style of play" mean?

Thanks!

Antagonizing other player's style of play is the whole purpose of these forums isn't it? Is this your first day? You're kind of cute.
