MiniLuv Announces Annual Protest

A spectre is haunting highsec–the spectre of MiniLuv.

In recent years, the Ministry of Love has organised and executed an annual weekend of protests against unjust causes within our game and our community. These protests take place using the moniker of “Burn X”, where the Ministry leads a horde of faithful Goons and friends to a location and proceeds to riot in the streets, breaking and burning everything they can lay hands on.

In recent years, MiniLuv have protested the domination of the Jita market hub by Burning Amarr, protested the retirement of SIG Leader Warr Akini by Burning (out) Warr Akini, and they have spent the last two consecutive years Burning Jita for the Kids, in protest at the RMT situation in EVE Online.

This year, the Ministry is focusing their efforts on botting, which we all know is a rampant issue within the EVE universe. Between the constant need to resupply bot accounts with ships and fittings in deep nullsec, the deflating value of LP as mission-running becomes automated, the constant acceptance and completion of courier contracts without player input, and the market bots that drive item values into the ground, nothing in EVE is uncorrupted.

CCP has recognised and challenged these issues in their security efforts over the last year – Team Security began activity updates in the first quarter of 2018, and have given quarterly updates since then. In that year, a total of 14,109 accounts have been banned for macro use or botting violations of the EULA. However, CCP’s interest in the area is still lagging behind communities of botting individuals, and they appear unable to catch up.

The Ministry of Love has noticed these problems, and they will answer. Any person trying to bot their way out of Jita on MiniLuv’s chosen weekend will be punished. Any individual waiting on fittings for their botting supercarrier will be disappointed. Any market bot anticipating an influx of stock and a decrease in prices will fail. The Ministry of Love knows what you are doing, and it will answer. The Ministry will once again be Burning Jita.

Traditionally, the protest begins soon after downtime on Friday, and continues all the way until people fall by the wayside and can do no more, generally sometime before downtime on the following Monday.

You have been warned. MiniLuv is coming for you.

    MiniLuv contributes to many charitable causes in highsec, and I think we can all agree they deserve recognition for their many selfless acts on behalf of the downtrodden of EVE Online.

    Personally, I will join Burn Jita this year to pledge my commitment to eliminating income inequality in highsec. I’m doing it for the people. For the children. My God, think of the children.

    Everytime I see a goon posting, I’m reminded of the movie “Deliverance”. I just visualize a bunch of redneck mouthbreather inbreds with shotguns sitting on their back porches.

    For those of you too young to know…

      A visit to Jita when it’s on reinforces that image.

      I can 100% recommend it, if you’ve ever thought local was toxic and thoroughly unpleasant anywhere else you’ve been in the game it really doesn’t compare to local in Jita when burn Jita is on.

    Once again the heroes of Delve are called upon to bring culture and humanity to a place bereft of both. High Sec.

    Do remember this is all done on your behalf. In fact it wouldn’t be out of order to offer donations of isk and exotic dancers to GSF members you might come across in your travels. No need to jettison a can, for the sake of efficiency we’ll just grab your donations directly from your wreck.
