Over the past year, MinerBumping has occasionally been threatened with DDoS attacks. We're still here. Maybe CCP could use a bit of our standard-issue New Order Invincibility. In the meantime, let's celebrate some ganks that took place during the week of May 26th @ 00:00 EVEtime through June 1st @ 23:59 EVEtime.
First up, ryan penny's Orca. (I've used the zKillboard graphics, as the Eve-Kill ones are on the fritz due to the EVE server outage.) Agents Capt Starfox, xxBLACK SKULLxx 929, Blue Suntun, Manny Moons, Dante Lobos, John E Normus, Ailish Liu, and D400 penalized the carebear for mining without a license. It goes without saying that ryan was a bot-aspirant; his 1.18 billion isk pod was still sitting there 12 minutes later when it got popped.
That same day, three other offending Orcas were roasted by our Knights: Morrianne Grazor, Sentinel 912, and Mur Maider. They all failed to heed the New Order, and they all paid the price. In addition to the Agents listed above, Agents Fawn Tailor, Sir Mack Inawrex, R0me0 Charl1e, Lenda Shinhwa, Guybertini, xX1337MastaXx, NotTheSmartestCookie, Dr Tyler, and Leeza Del assisted on these kills.
It was another competitive week for podkills. admiral darkhammer's pod, worth over 1.7 billion isk, topped them all. He was killed by Agent D400 while--incredibly--auto-piloting. For all of you carebears out there who fill your pods with expensive implants, please remember that the only thing that stands between you and what you deserve is an Agent of the New Order with a cheap destroyer and iron will.
The cheesy suicide gank of the week is Terra Gold's Obelisk freighter, worth 1.4 billion isk. I say it's a cheesy suicide gank because of the circumstances: Agents GloVine and SexyVanillaFreshness were awoxing the freighter, and they invited Agent xxBLACK SKULLxx 929 (not in the corp) to join in. He brought his Catalyst to the party and assisted in the kill with a suicide attack. Unnecessary, but very sweet.
Though not technically a suicide gank, Kaldar Andedare lost his anti-Order Falcon because he forgot Agent Small Beer had kill rights on him. These rights were assigned to Agent Arden Elenduil, who promptly blapped him into oblivion with a Tornado. But this was only a prelude to Arden's Tornado antics a few days later, which would bring down a much more impressive bird:
Leticronn's Raven Navy Issue, worth 5 and a half billion isk, is a marvelous example of bot-aspirancy. He was willing to spend everything he had on this monstrous mission-running ship, but wouldn't set aside even 10 million isk to pay homage to the ruler of highsec. Astoundingly, he couldn't even spare a few nice words about me in his bio, which is totally free to do. You can guess what happened next.
Agents Arden Elenduil, Zkanu, popblues420420, Fen Haroun, Tah'ris Khlador, James Everett, Amyclas Amatin, and Perseus Parker consulted with each other and determined that Leticronn represented a clear and present danger to highsec, his extravagant vessel an open declaration of indifference to the Code. They judged him guilty and decided to kill him--a call any Agent worth his salt would make. So they dropped by with a gang of Tornadoes (and one Thrasher) to blap the Raven and his 840 million isk pod. At this rate, we may need to put the Loot Fairy on the Red Pen list, though. The drop was absurd: There were 9 mid/lowslot modules worth 100 million or more, and only one of them dropped. You'd get better odds from Somer Blink!
Damn you loot fairy for denying Arden Elenduil, Zkanu, popblues420420, Fen Haroun, Tah'ris Khlador, James Everett, Amyclas Amatin, and Perseus Parker what was respectfully theirs after all that hard work.ReplyDelete
Damn straight it was, took us a whole lot of waiting and stalking our prey to finally nail himDelete
Loot Fairy <- PrimaryDelete
So how much did that gank cost anyway?Delete
Wow 5.5 bil... that's two and a half carriers!ReplyDelete
It is not so much money poor old Daltzi lost almost twice that last month!Delete
He's grasping at straws, and certainly not a connoisseur like yourself.Delete
^ hmm.. posted in wrong section.Delete
every time you put officer mods on a mission ship, god kills a kitten.ReplyDelete
Glad to see the New Order shining its light on mission-runners. The missions themselves give us ISK, they give us loot, they give us a task and a promise of a reward.ReplyDelete
But the New Order gives us something far more precious. The New Order reminds us that we're not all alone in the world of EVE. The New Order transforms highsec into a community; it makes us aware of one another; it makes us friends with one another. The New Order frees us from our self-built cages of gold and loot tables, and teaches us to listen to each other, to learn from each other, to love each other.
By striking at the worst of us, the New Order will save the rest of us.
Oh, now I get it: This DDoS-attack taking out Eve today was meant to hit Minerbumbing.de, they were just to stupid to attack the right target! Now all makes sense!ReplyDelete
You're so close, just a little bit more thinking!ReplyDelete
You guys in Elore are so funny. I heard UA runs your shit down there.Delete
Aww, you're amusing. They do and they don't. Small gangs fights I've noticed Hegemonous Pandorum usually wins. However, once you start talking about hot drops, then yeah UA owns (because it has the numbers and friends to back them up); doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out hot dropping has increased, since Hegemonous Pandorum is more formidable in small gangs. Also, if you've done you're homework, you probably wouldn't have posted anything (unless of course you're apart of UA, or Devils.. you probably are), because you would have noticed how small Hegemonous Pandorum is and that Hegemonous Pandorum had held it's own vs. the much larger force known as, you guessed it, UA and Devils.Delete
All in all I'm not afraid to admit (unlike you I'm sure, anon) that at times we've lost to UA and Devils. Nevertheless, Hegemonous Pandorum has held up extraordinarily well despite overwhelming odds and everyone involved has had some awesome fights. I have nothing against UA, nor Devils and my viewpoint may/may not be the same as Hegemonous Pandorum.
Chill Capt Starfox. Nothing wrong with getting your 'shit' blown up by a numerically superior force. Perhaps you should give up mining?Delete
Hell yeah Bobbins! No worries losing ships, it's all apart of the game.Delete
I should totally give up mining, I mean, I'm losing my Macks all the time! I keep suicide ganking them! ..It's become rather conflicting!
Thats the advantage with the New Order, no matter how bad the pilots are they have a generous reimbursement policy. I'm glad you take advantage of the scheme.Delete
They're so bad that miners have to migrate to run away from them and people like you keep providing comic material by commenting on this blog, and you can't even understand that you're doing exactly what they want. You are owned by the New Order Bobbins.Delete
Aye, it's a great policy and most importantly it helps with new players who can't afford to gank, but really want to. And it doesn't matter how bad they are (within reason), it's more about the teamwork and having fun. It's amazing how pirates are more generous than most carebears.Delete
"The drop was absurd: There were 9 mid/lowslot modules worth 100 million or more, and only one of them dropped."ReplyDelete
Ganker tears best tears!
Really? That's your favorite flavor of tears? The *snaps fingers* "dang it, better luck next time..." kind?ReplyDelete
I much prefer the *buries head in hands* "Please give it back! EVERYTHING I EVER OWNED WAS IN THAT ORCA!" kind of tears. Then of course, there's the classic:
"You're a prick. That was my first real ship, I saved up for a month to buy it, I can't afford another one, and I didn't have insurance....also my clone was out of date so I lost SP." kind of tears. Eh, no accounting for taste I suppose.

Wait, wait... agent of the new order? >_> you wound me, sirs. I bump miners quite happily and go around making a nuisance of myself, but agent of the new order? Thats just.... thats too much >_<ReplyDelete
