The entire highsec community is on a fantastic voyage toward its shared goal of 100% Code compliance. For some, that voyage can become a bit of a bumpy ride. Let's look at some of the highsec residents who took a tumble during the week of August 3rd @ 00:00 EVEtime through August 9th @ 23:59 EVEtime.
Nothing says "oops" quite like a 436 million isk Retriever. Castailia Cybele went (generously) halfway on the tank and went all the way on expensive mining drones. Agents Anal Canal, loyalanon, and Big G Chelien witnessed Castailia's crime and put a stop to it. Crisis averted.
The good news? Angrahm Mileghere was flying a cheap frigate. The bad news? It was completely untanked--indeed, unfit. The good news? He didn't lose any modules when Agent Zane Arnolles popped him. The bad news?
...The unfit frigate was carrying nearly 900 million isk in cargo. The good news? The CODE always wins.
WoB Diamond become "WtB Permit" when he went AFK and autopiloted in a 5.3 billion isk Nightmare. Agents loyalanon, Zane Arnolles, Krominal, Angel Pirate, and John E Normus noticed the slumberer sleepwalking his way through Isanamo and gave him an antimatter wake-up call. They say it's dangerous to wake a sleepwalker, but it's even more dangerous to violate the Code.
Xispa Alborada lost the Pod of the Week while abusing her limited-issue Leopard by AFK autopiloting. Agent Brutal Anna patrols highsec for such abuses--yes, even in 1.0 security systems. Apparently Xispa considered herself quite the marksman with all of her gunnery-related implants. But it was Brutal Anna whose guns won the day.
There is a plague infecting highsec. A disease which threatens to ruin us all.
They're called incursion runners. These bot-aspirants equip themselves with decadent finery and go AFK in "safe spots" between isk-grinding sessions. Virpio Hekki's Vindicator was destroyed shortly after the screenshot was taken.
Everyone knows that I have long opposed highsec incursion running. It's a grotesque risk/reward imbalance. If I were in charge of CCP, I would remove all incursions from highsec and neg-wallet every bot-aspirant who has ever profited from them. However, I do not run CCP. Therefore I only require that incursion runners purchase a mining permit and show total obedience to the Code. Fair enough?
Zelom Oeqan is a typical incursion runner. This week, our Agents paid special attention to incursion runners such as he. Agents John E Normus, Sophia Soprano, Zane Arnolles, loyalanon, and Anal Canal found him guilty and splattered his fail-fit command ship. Look at those lowslots. Is he flying a Sleipnir or a Dell?
Skai DefENDer is another example of an incursion runner who ran afoul of the New Order. Agents John E Normus, Angel Pirate, Zane Arnolles, loyalanon, Anal Canal, Capt Starfox, and Sophia Soprano are never put off a gank by a bunch of warp core stabs. It's hard to warp away when AFK.
The Dryson of the Week went to DrysonBennington's astonishingly fail-fit Cyclone, which attempted to stop our Agents from killing freighters in Uedama. DrysonBennington's ship didn't have too much EHP, but Agents Brutal Anna, DJentropy Ovaert, Lonely Spirit, Aaaarrgg, Mildron Klinker, Krominal, loyalanon, SirCunccan, Anal Canal, and Skipper Blue all crowded onto the killmail so they could share in the pleasure of killing him. How did Dryson manage to gain such notoriety? Here's one reason:
Dryson believes the EULA requires CCP to nerf freighter ganking again. If CCP doesn't do it, are they violating the EULA? Committing torture, even? Should CCP be banned?
Until then, the warriors of the New Order will do what they feel is right with the freighters.
