Kills of the Year

You asked for it, and you got it. In our continuing celebration of the New Order's first birthday, we have a very special "Kills of the Week" post today. The following are the most expensive kills from the previous "Kills of the Week" editions in these categories: Retriever, Mackinaw, Hulk, Capsule, and Orca. Oh, and I suppose I'll toss in a few of my favorite wildcards, as well!

Here's Lord Vent's 744 million isk Mackinaw, killed by Agents Ziaeon, Lady Geesica Marstolt, and PinkOboe. The ORE Strip Miners equipped to the ship vary in price over time. At current prices the Mack would be worth over a billion isk. But flying a completely untanked mining ship (indeed, anti-tanked) never seems to go out of style with these carebears.

Next up, Quimera223's 1.6 billion isk Hulk, killed by Agent Capt Starfox. Quimera didn't bother to fit any tanking rigs to this piƱata, which also featured two empty midslots. I'm sure it was all he could do to equip one shield extender--even if it was a small.

This one will come as no surprise: Argus Krazni's now famous 2.6 billion isk Retriever, killed by Agent Sajun Benza. values the ship at 2.09 billion or 2.37 billion, depending on the market. Regardless, Argus is a legend. I'll always treasure this kill and the wonderful Code that made it possible.

Of all the Orcas we've destroyed, the most expensive belonged to Starstruck Wanderer, who lost 2.5 billion isk. Agents Capt Starfox, Dante Lobos, Ziaeon, xxBLACK SKULLxx 929, D400, Maiki Dresin, Pestario Vargas, Sir Mack Inawrex, and Agent Trask did the deed. Perhaps my favorite of the changes CCP made to the game in the last year is the addition of corporate and ship hangar data to Orca killmails. If you stuff your Orca like a pot pie, you deserve to get popped.

The priciest of the pods, worth 3.8 billion isk, belonged to Argus Tuffed, 'sploded by Agent Karbox Delacroix. I'd just like to point something out that may have gone unnoticed: The most expensive Hulk, Retriever, and Capsule kills on this list were all solo kills. One person in one ship can make a difference. This is solo PvP at its very finest.

And now for a couple wildcard categories. First, the most expensive ship kill overall:

Leticronn's Raven Navy Issue was worth 5.6 billion isk before it was converted into a killmail by Agents Arden Elenduil, Zkanu, popblues420420, Fen Haroun, Tah'ris Khlador, James Everett, Amyclas Amatin, and Perseus Parker. You could throw a few hundred pilots into a battle in nullsec and not do that much damage! Leticronn just wanted to "run some missions". Yeah, you can run missions in highsec all you like. You can run, but you can't hide, from the Code.

And finally, the most expensive non-mining mining ship:

It turns my stomach to say this, but there was a lot of competition in this category. The "winner" was Ron Krawallo's 909 million isk mining Megathron Navy Issue. Agents Ziaeon, Fawn Tailor, Dante Lobos, Lenda Shinhwa, Galaxy Pig, Selina Dyle, and Galaxy Chicken got justice for highsec by putting the creature out of its misery. I'd like to meet the rebel who can justify the existence of such a vessel, or who can honestly object to its death. It's a crime for a faction battleship to spend its days humiliated and shackled to mining lasers, and enslaved in the ore belts. Our Agents set it free.

Highsec has been improved immeasurably over the last year, thanks to the good men and women of the New Order. I wonder what kills we'll see this year?


  1. I would like to submit one of my personal favorite kills, purely for sentimental reasons. This was, to my knowledge, the very first vulture ship destroyed during the early days of the Knights project. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you Commander Kempf's Rook:

    Also, this blog post!

    1. In perhaps the same line of thought, one of my favourite kills was the New Order's first Orca gank

      Though not nearly as expensive as some of the Orca ships they would go on to kill later it seemed like a landmark kill at the time, and remains one of my favourite articles to this day.

    Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

    Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline.

    This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

    For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

    Diet food
    Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

    Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
