Kills of the Week

Today we celebrate some notable kills inflicted during the week of June 9th @ 00:00 EVEtime through June 15th @ 23:59 EVEtime.


We start with Thevlyn's Hulk. Nothing too special there. That is, until you realize that Anthela Feh and Nysk lost their Hulks, and all three of them lost their pods, all in the same attack. Yes, it was a triple-Hulk-triple-pod kill, performed by just a trio of Agents: John E Normus and Fawn Tailor killed the Hulks; Ailish Liu got all the pods. Now that's efficiency.

All of you rebels in the "shoot at something that shoots back" camp, I challenge you to produce an example of such fine PvP talent. You won't find it among those who orbit their anchor and mash "F1", or among those who blob targets jumping into a gatecamp, or among those who "solo" with the support of scout alts, logi alts, Ewar alts, booster alts, etc. Anyone can see that the New Order is the focal point of elite PvP in the EVE galaxy.



Ouch! Keinjo Afuran lost 1.2 billion isk when he was podded by Agent Spine Ripper. Was it deserved? I would say so: Keinjo lost his Retriever when Spine Ripper killed it, 16 minutes earlier. The bot-aspirant pod was waiting to die.

Is laziness of that sort becoming a trend? Agent xxBLACK SKULLxx 929 reported an even more egregious example this week. After Black killed Alex Meidison's Retriever, Alex put a 10 million isk bounty on him. But Alex's pod was still sitting there after the aggression timer expired, and Black killed it, too. Alex responded by placing another 20 million isk bounty.



It was certainly a competitive week in the pod-killing department. rafino lost over 2 billion isk worth of implants when Agent Fawn Tailor popped his pod, immediately after destroying rafino's Hulk. If the merchants at Jita 4-4 had any concern for their customers, they would bundle Michi's Excavation Augmentors with complementary mining permits.



Like I said, it was a competitive week for pod-killing. ZveZdik lost 2.8 billion isk worth of implants when he was podded by Agent Maiki Dresin's arty Thrasher in New Caldari. That's a 1.0 security system, which just goes to show you that no system is safe in highsec for those who travel unblessed by the Code. ZveZdik was autopiloting in his pod, but Maiki had a feeling there was a possibility of unlicensed mining in ZveZdik's future. Sure enough, you can see a mining implant among the contraband. Let this be a lesson to all you rebels out there: If you intend to mine in my highsec without obeying the Code, you had better do it in a spare jump clone.

  1. "Elite PVP"
    In high-sec?
    Against miners?

    Sure, I can agree with most that you have written, but this is just absolutely hilarious in the wrong way.

    1. No, it's hilarious in the right way; the fact that you've previously enjoyed this site but still got trolled today, all unawares, only makes the reference more amusing yet.

    2. Nah, it's hilarious that he would even imply that what the New order is doing is even resembling PVP.

      Shooting a brick with a person in it does not make it PVP.

      I still enjoy the rest of it though.

    3. Looks like he missed it a second time. Some people are slow to catch on.

  2. ZveZdik´s loss and the fun You have about it is the prove: New Order is just a bunch of the lowest kind of people You can find. There is NOTHING in Your so called "Code" to make this kill honorable or at least acceptable. ZveZdik has not done any mining in hi-sec, he was flying in a Pod. As You still call this dishonorable pilot an agent make everything you tell about honor, code or trust a joke. You are a scammer, nothing more, using the holes in the program to have your way. I hope sometime you´ll think about this and get a better person, as it is just sad. From this time, I will no longer be an agent.

    1. If you really were an agent, I'm sad because that means even morons can be agents. Luckily the bad ones quit quickly apparently.

    2. "ZveZdik has not done any mining in hi-sec"

      Where's your proof of this wild assertion?

      http://eveboard.com/pilot/ZveZdik

      Mining level 5.

      Ice harvesting level 4.

      Mining barge level 5.

      Exhumers level 3.

      Very low scanning skills.

      Any reasonable observer would conclude this is a highsec mining pilot.

      Delete
    3. Any reasonable observer would also check the age of the pilot and could so tell he may also have mined before new order was known. Ice harvest 4 is unusual for an ice miner. Also the lost implants are mostly for combat, not for mining. But the main point was: He was shoot down while traveling, not mining. There is no honor in that, thats all. He was not killed during a mining session or while he tried to defend permitless miners. So there was just no reason within the code to shoot him down, only the greed for a podkill.

    4. NEWS FLASH

      New Order are high-sec griefers masquerading behind an anti-botting veil of BS.

      Seriously, anon, anyone who has read more than six words on this blog knows this.

      Delete
    5. It's besides the point if he was mining or not: if you autopilot through EVE in your billion+ POD you deserve to be popped just because of stupidity alone.

      The CODE, glorious as always, also teaches non-miners (expensive) lessons. Makes me feel proud.

    6. hi pob, griefing isn't allowed in eve so that is not what they are doing.

    7. You don't get the code Adoulin. It says that gankers are always welcome to gank. In EVE there's a rule: if you can;t defend what you hagve, it's not yours, and you will lose it. That honor nonsense is for carebears.

      If you expose yourself to a gank it was your fault. The ganker is always welcome to gank because ganking is good for the game. Destroying ships is good for the game as a whole, for economic and fun reasons. Ganking is never wrong. Avoiding interactions (like ganks) is.

      The Code is about making players interact in high sec and giving consequences and responsibilities to high sec players. It's very important to encourage gankers to do so as much as possible to teach carebears that this game is what it is because your actions (or lack of) have consequences.

      Also, this is a role playing game. You can role play someone with your definition of "honor". But it's your choice. If you want to be a psycotic murderer you're welcome to do so, because it's a roleplaying game and no person is harmed. It's not the New Order case though, as they are very clear about the rules they follow.

  4. Today, I was mining hemorphite in an ore anomaly in Amarr COSMOS space. Another miner was there, named "Algonquin Calhoun," piloting a mackinaw.

    Out of boredom, I checked his info, and his corp's info, then happened upon his war history. Only two wars were listed.

    One war had no kills at all. The other had three: An orca, a retriever, and a pod, all killed over a year ago -- by no less than James 315 himself.

    Even while mining in the loneliest reaches of highsec, I feel James 315's presence, and am comforted.

  5. The triple hulk triple pod is a masterful feat of PvP talent executed by 2 of the best gankers (and 1 in training) High Sec will ever see.

  6. It makes me happy to see how filthy rich miners are. Its like ccp giving us a huge bag of free isk each day. :)
