Hear ye, hear ye! Let's look at some suicide gankings that took place from April 21st @ 00:00 EVEtime through April 27th @ 23:59 EVEtime.
OK, what's the deal with people mining in expensive battleships? This is starting to get creepy. Ron Krawallo provides the creepiness this week with a mining Navy Megathron. Thankfully, Agents Ziaeon, Fawn Tailor, Dante Lobos, Lenda Shinhwa, Galaxy Pig, Selina Dyle, and Galaxy Chicken arrived and put an end to the madness. As a bonus, they popped the 1.2 billion isk pod that the Navy Mega spat out.
I'm not sure what to say about this one. Amli was assisting an illegal mining op by protecting an Orca with this 840 million isk shield-repping Vargur. Then Agents Ziaeon, Capt Starfox, and Dante Lobos came by and killed her.
No, they didn't kill Amli in a second shield-repping Vargur. This is the same kill. I just enjoyed looking at it so much the first time I decided to post it again. This is a message to anyone who would protect an 800 million isk Orca with an 800 million isk repping-marauder: Don't be a hero. At least, not that kind of hero.
This 3.8 billion isk pod belonged to rebel miner Argus Tuffed, who was made to pay the antimatter price. Karbox Delacroix popped the pod, while the Hulk was smashed by Karbox Delacroix, Tara Read, Isotempo, and ZFK Hunter. Yes, this podkill took place a few weeks ago, but I missed it when it came up, and I'd rather correct that mistake than bury it.
(If you prefer fresher pod fare, you can enjoy Rob Creer's 1.9 billion isk pod with Crystal implants, which surely aided his Mackinaw with 3 Civilian Shield Boosters. Thanks be to Capt Starfox, Ziaeon, avea Kan, elina Dyle, and Dante Lobos.)
Ah, the Orcas. Joshua Kane Zirud lost this 1.3 billion isk Orca, along with a billion isk pod, because he thought he was too good for the Code. Friend, no one is too good for the Code. The Orca's cost was inflated by the more than 600 million isk worth of tech II shield-extending rigs. Ziaeon left the following note in the eve-kill.net comments: "Didn't even need a Brutix for this one. Zero fucks given about your attempt at tank."
So here's the thing. Over the past month, the New Order has suicide ganked 36 Orcas. 28 of those Orcas were killed during the week in question. You can see the list here, because I'm not going to link all of them separately.
You know, Orcas are historically not a very common target for suicide ganks. Even during the entirety of the Gallente Ice Interdiction of 2011, pre-insurance nerf, only around 20 Orcas were ganked. The New Order's ganking spree last week represents the largest slaughter of Orcas in EVE's history. I am at a loss for words. My heart is bursting.
Since I can't go through and list each of the 28 Orca ganks of this week, I'll simply list the Agents who participated in at least one of these kills, in alphabetical order. With all these bold tags, the internet is going to run out of ink, but here we go:
Capt Starfox, Carnyx, crusnic arcoli, cryonicw00t, Dante Lobos, Favea Kan, Guybertini, Isotempo, John E Normus, Karbox Delacroix, Lady Geesica Marstolt, Lenda Shinhwa, Maiki Dresin, Nu'adu, Pestario Vargas, PinkOboe, Selina Dyle, Stonecold Deathdealer, Talia Andrade, Tasa Vox Nova, Till Riedell, Wescro2, xxBLACK SKULLxx 929, xXBlackShinigamiXx 777, xxFEAR MONGERxx, xxLADY DEATHxx626, and last, but certainly not least, Ziaeon--I think he was on every single one of these Orca kills.
The New Order is a beacon of hope to all. I even noticed some of the kills had assists from NEW ORDER DEATH DEALERS, a corp with a bunch of people with "xx" names who originally planned to undermine the New Order, but who decided it would be more fun to help kill Orcas.
That's all for this week. Keep your Orcas safe, and let the Code light your way.
