CODE - can anyone can explain?

I’m wondering whats your point to play as CODE Agent, apart from this role play bull ■■■■.
Can anyone point me out any real reasons to do that ?

Just went on their website, all i see is propaganda, and a weird one.

I mean, What the ■■■■ ?

Posting in undercover “CODE is relevant/gief attention to us” thread.

Enough said.

That’s just it - roleplaying. And this is a sandbox where being whatever you want - even an a-hole - is actively encouraged. There are ways to avoid the a-holes, and one is to not be in the same system as them. Pretty easy to do when there are 7500 systems to choose from.

Sure, when i was in High i was i one of those lost systems with less than one jump / day, and actually live in nullsec since months.

But still, i feel like some of them are really inspired, have real motivations. Not just RP… or they might be “next level RP”

I think some of those CODE guys are hilarious, and this is coming from someone who has lost bling ships to them before.

The point is tear collection, of course, as with most griefing in Eve.

Bunch of people exploiting system for their gain. RP was a pretext in beginning, then some people started getting it seriously, like if CODE RP can be taken seriously.


(Kannibal Kane) #8

Exploiting? Please report exploits to CCP as it is a bannable offense to use exploits in EVE.

Mind explaining what exactly and how they are exploiting?


(Nana Skalski) #9

Exploiting not in a sense of using exploits as defined by CCP. Just general english language meaning.

exploit
verb
3rd person present: exploits
ɪkˈsplɔɪt,ɛkˈsplɔɪt/

1.
make full use of and derive benefit from (a resource).

So, basically, they expoit crimewatch mechanisms. And in the same way, mission runners expoit PvE mechanisms. And miners exploit mining mechanisms. And Wormholers exploit WH mechanisms. Nothing wrong then.

For me it is really because of my deep love for other people and how I can help the random poor non-compliant miner to become better at EVE and literately become a better person.


(Salvos Rhoska) #12

vs

Comitting illegal acts in HS that get CONCORD to explode you.


(Ima Wreckyou) #13

CONCORD is just a game mechanic. I’m talking about compliance with the law of Highsec which everyone agreed to when they entered New Order territory (formerly known as Highsec) of course, the New Halaima Code of Conduct.


(Salvos Rhoska) #14

CONCORD is a game mechanic.

“New Halaima Code of Conduct” is a RP fiction.


(Salvos Rhoska) #15

Its funny as hell how upset they get when they are called RPers (which they are), and how hard they try to deny it.


(Knowledgeminer) #16

From what I can see, it’s actually a more complex thing than it may seem at first.

CODE members share a profound dislike of the way high sec carebears play the game, the many wrong assumptions they make, how little they care to properly fit and fly their ships, and especially how they react when they lose their spaceships in a game that’s all about exploding ships in space.

Don’t know if all, but many CODE members do believe that, if left alone, those carebears could end up ruining the game with their mentality, and that CODE can prevent that from happening by continuously reminding them that there is no such thing as safety anywhere in EVE.

And then there is the blog thing that the victims themselves make so entertaining and has become an EVE feature by itself. There are people that don’t play the game but still know about the game and have fun reading minerbumping.

I personally am glad they exist, mostly because they provide such a target rich environment… :grin:


(Salvos Rhoska) #17

Nah, CODE just dislikes buying wardecs.


(Nana Skalski) #18

Yes, so when it comes to discussing some new game mechanics that could hurt their activity or gains, CODEes are very enraged. Basically you could say that about every subgroup of EVE players. Muh ISK, muh killboards, muh asteroids, muh CQ, muh bounties, muh carriers, the pattern is very visible.


(Salvos Rhoska) #19

CODE is an RP based HS racketeering org.

They clear fields of other miners, so they can mine more on their own alts there, especially Ice anoms.


(Dirk Kajhone) #20

As has been mentioned many times, CODE. is just an excuse for people who are bad at actual PvP to pretend they are badasses by tackling targets that mostly can’t fight back. They are virtually irrelevant in todays game.
