Kills of the Week


If you can hear DrysonBennington whimpering, you know it's time for another Kills of the Week post. To be clear, the New Order isn't all about killing people. Ours is a mission of peace. Even so, a great civilization cannot be built overnight, and a lasting peace cannot be established without using force. This kind of killing--to be distinguished from that which occurs during an indiscriminate massacre--is a necessary part of the highsec peace process. Let's check out some fun kills that took place during the peace process from the week of August 31st @ 00:00 EVEtime through September 6th @ 23:59 EVEtime.


Watch out! EVEEYE.com issued a suicide gank warning for the Uedama system. Did the carebears pay attention?



Dust Angel's nano-Rhea was turned to dust when it failed to outrun a force of 30 New Order gankers. Many alliances took part--even our powerful nullsec friends Pandemic Legion sent a representative. Note to future jump freighter owners: A triple-nano fit is no substitute for a mining permit.

Agents Jerry Rin, 412nv yaken, Awarmingcoat, John E Normus, Aaaarrgg, Mildron Klinker, Doomchinchilla, Angel Pirate, Lucas Padecain, Walter Kramer, Keraina Talie-Kuo, loyalanon, Anal Canal, Krominal, Gunther Cucs, Lady Ati, Morgana L'Olonnais, Tattered Sails, Falopadous, Lonely Spirit, Merk Stainz, Yucan Blome, Pod-Goo RepoWoman, Kain Felmont, hellyeaz, HotShotX Warcastle, Slade Stryker, King of Highsec, Michele Bachmann, and Pod-Goo Repairman destroyed the Rhea. Another two Rheas were also destroyed this week.



Spareus Adonai's Hydrogen Isotope-laden freighter, worth more than 8.4 billion isk, was taken down by an elite force of just 7 gankers: Agents loyalanon, John E Normus, Angel Pirate, karma balancer, Anal Canal, hellyeaz, and reaper Shardani. Spareus was hauling over 8 million units of Hydrogen Isotopes--but he wasn't pulling his weight. He owed something to highsec. This week, highsec came to collect.



What is it with Orca pilots today? Eowarlyn lost a 4 billion isk Orca when she took an unscheduled jaunt through my territory. Her Orca was quintuple-anti-tanked and filled with a bunch of junk that she probably should've left at home. The rebel community response:


Somehow I think CCP will make due without Eowarlyn. Agents John E Normus, Walter Kramer, Jerry Rin, Voreth Doreign, Jones Bones, Falopadous, SnowmAU2 Amatin, Tyrolen, Doomchinchilla, AoshiKenshin, Merk Stainz, loyalanon, Shey Nabali, Albino Chan, Biggie Kadeyooh, Unmirth Mirthyful, Gandon Kahler, Kaydyns, and Michele Bachmann are each worth a million Eowarlyns.



Enough of these multi-billion isk kills. Let's get back to our roots. Linkvud appalled the good people of highsec with one of the worst-fit Retrievers I've seen. What, he couldn't fit a damage control in one of the two extra lowslots? Thankfully, Agent King of Highsec sent Linkvud scurrying back to the drawing board.



I guess we're back to the multi-billion isk kills, thanks to Mento Audrission. This snake in the grass hid himself among fellow Retriever pilots in a random system. Though he equipped more than 3 billion isk worth of snake implants, he couldn't slither away from Agent Jack Van Impe quickly enough to escape death. I don't know why a highsec miner would buy so many speed implants. Maybe he thought they would speed up his mining. Jack wisely submitted this kill to Agent DJentropy Ovaert for the September pod-killing contest. It might be tough to beat, but we've all learned never to underestimate the bot-aspirancy of the highsec carebear.

      A black day for CODE

      Dear Sirs,

      Today is a black day in this History of CODE, a monumental day, a day that should cause a rethink no less than the rethink caused by Martin Luther posting his famous list of remonstrations against the Church on that famous day in 1517.

      Consider this epic kill https://zkillboard.com/kill/41117939/

      This poor soul was a CODE affiliated bumping Machariel, whose job it was to bump freighters, preventing them from warping, and allowing the CODE suicide gank squad to kill them. How this relates to a CODE established to combat highsec mining, is a question that I also must admit to be baffled by.

      Notable is the truly piss poor tank (can't afford a T2 adaptive? Seriously? Ever heard of a word that rhymes with gank and that can save your ship?).

      Gentlemen, I must say that CODE has succeeded beyond my wildest imagination. Succeeded in uniting highsec carebears against Code and it's Goon backers, succeeded in making hapless carebears look like harderned nullsec fighters, succeeded in projecting soaring rhetoric unmatched by any kind of actual accomplishments, succeeded in exploiting the game mechanic of bumping to kill empty freighters all the while failing to control highsec mining, and succeeded in threatening incursions runners but utterly failing to endanger their profession.

      CODE today suffers from dire mission creep. It's original purpose was clear, that stupid "New Halaima Code of Conduct" notwithstanding. The purpose was to inhibit the proliferation of highsec mining so as to raise mineral prices, and combat the dire threat of continued deflation in Eve. This would also keep Plex prices at a reasonable level. Additionally, the powerful nullsec power blocks backing CODE would make trillions from their massive mineral stocks. Due to leadership failures on a number of levels, Code has lost this focus, and has started destroying freighters, pods, and even incursion runners (though not many), even though this does nothing to restrict mining and raise mineral prices.

      Gentlemen, it's time for changes. Go back to killing miners. Go back to raising mineral prices. Reconnect to your roots, and end this terrible mission creep. Code can reclaim its former glory, but only if it reforms its ways.

      Yours,

      A concerned citizen of New Eden,

      Dear Sirs,

      I changed my mind. I realized that most of my earlier post had nothing to do with that Machariel killmail, that the mission creep I was worried about was most easily seen in my own rambling style. Let's keep it short and sweet: a ship got blown up, everyone quit EVE now.

      Thank you Veers for elevating me into such an august group. I feel though your email to me is wasted, as I'm just a mere pod pilot, barely over 1M SB and am not formally part of CODE, even though I hold to it's teaching.
      I certainly have no say or influence in its upper reaches... I am but a simple man, caught up in great events.

      Though I am not among the great and worthy you have named, I thank you for thinking of me that way.

      Veers, if you are going to expose the truth like this it's good form to include everyone involved.  I think it only proper that you write another mail and include our overlords from PL, NC., Nulli, and TEST/Brave.

      If this is some cunning plan to split our leadership I can assure it won't work.

    14. So you are the carebear jews' spokesman and leader now? Here's what I think. You're not a lawyer. You're unemployed and penniless and this game makes you feel less bad about yourself. Stop sending us mail. Uninstall and go do something with your life. Pathetic.

      You sir win the Ultimate Troll Competition! Unfortunately it won't help you in actually playing EVE... but you have 22B ISK. That will buy a lot of replacement ships you lose in those gate camps and other forms of pvp.

    19. Hey veers, your best bet is to type up a nicely detailed evemail to Digi. If you get his attention, stuff might happen.

    21. I'm too important for some waffles losers. I already eve mailed all the goonswarm diplomats. This Digi fool is free to get in touch with me.

      Delete
    22. Perhaps in your evemail, you might address Digi as "sir" or "most excellent." He likes being addressed properly. I think you're too pitiful for him to bother with you now. But if you get his attention, perhaps offer him an honourable duel to prove your righteousness and all. I doubt you have the balls to do it though. Perhaps he'll let you off easy and allow you to apologize and sing for the goon fleets on comms.

      Delete
    23. He would need to pass the 3 part test of wisdom to duel me, and we all know that a waffle will never succeed. I would recommend a new fight song (do you like waffles? is pretty lame....3rd grade level), or even better disbanding waffles and joining PL. It must get old being the third rate training/taxpayer corp of a decent alliance? Why not move up in life?

      Delete
    24. But you wont evemail Digi because you're a pussy. Ha! Thought so.

    25. I will forward my mail to Digi....what is his full eve name?

    26. You are right. I forgot. You are not a troll. You're sheep...

    37. Confirming "Snookie" is pretty adorable, but let's focus on the content of that pastebin.

      This shows a very clear pattern of behavior in Veers - adds nothing to the game, creates zero content - but has VERY strong opinions about those who do and will share them as if they have any value to begin with. Look at him whine over and over about Waffles, while of course - sitting in a one man corp that has never accomplished anything at all of any value. The whining about PLEX prices was like the icing on the cake, for me.

      But, of course, he will need to point about at least ten times about his internet space lawyer job and his obvious Ivy degree education (I believe it - sometimes you have to be very well educated to be that ignorant) and I pretty much lost my mind when he started bragging about his wallet balance in local as a response to jumping into a gate camp. :-)

      It only gets more adorable. And he thinks around 20 billion is "rich" somehow. Maybe in his space lawyer based Ivy Degree day life, it is - but in EVE? Sheesh. He's not even cracked middle class yet, as evidenced here :)

      Delete
    38. Confirming (after having read that pastebin) that Veers' main mistake is talking. The more he talks, the more we get to know him, the more execrable he becomes. I mean really, trying to make fun of people by calling them 12 year olds for playing the game differently than him or having a silly slogan? Boasting of his supposed wealth, in or out of game? Boasting about his supposed, incidentally-unverifiable Ivy League degree? And come on, even if he had one, it's just the Ivies...it's not like he went to MIT or anything actually impressive. But I digress. If Veers had only stuck to his carefully-chosen 3-5 talking points, he'd have at least made a respectable rebel leader. But he went off-script...and the results are *super cringeworthy*. Jesus.

      Also, anyone else notice that his default, immediate response to any "umad bro" comment is "not angry, bemused". He can be in the middle of a tear-filled rager and he's still just "bemused". I don't think that word means what he thinks it means...or maybe he just thinks we plebs won't know what it means. Either way, dumb.

      Veers, if you're reading this (and I know you are, 'cause you ctrl+f every comments section of every post in minerbumping 20+ times a day): be less dumb in general, and specifically talk less. I know you think you really showed "those goshdurned waffles kids" by calling them children, but that accusation is one of the most childish things you can say in eve. You'll really help yourself look better by not putting your foot in your mouth, and given that that's *all you do* when you talk, you can help yourself look better by not talking.

      Looking forward to a response from you within 10 minutes, calling me a child, accusing me of being mad, insulting my intelligence, and otherwise showing a complete inability to accept advice or correction no matter how warranted....no, *especially* if it's warranted.

    41. To respond to DJ/Maria -

      DJ - you deserve minimal response only since you blocked me in game. I don't create "content" according to you. Happily so - I don't humiliate people, abuse them, and post it all on my website. I actually have a real moral value system. You are just a vile and despicable excuse for a human being, who gets your rocks off by torturing people.

      Maria - I found a way to grate on the waffles idiots. It was fun. It's called creating content in local. I have never gotten mad in this game, and have never even come close to shedding tears. I have a great time here. A lot of eve players are emotionally disturbed, and it's useful to point that out to the offenders in local. Pointing out immaturity is no crime, bro. And I will continue to do so, whether your like it or not.

    44. "You are just a vile and despicable excuse for a human being, who gets your rocks off by torturing people."

      No, you're not mad Veers. Not in the least. Why would anyone ever think so?

      Also, fyi: you can't torture people over a video game. To call what people do in a game "torture" is to show profound disrespect for the real people who have suffered real torture. Y'know, that thing where they cut bits of your body off, or make you feel as if you're drowning 20 times in an hour, or keep you awake for several days straight and beat you when you pass out. It is seriously despicable of you to appropriate that word to try to win an argument over internet spaceships. Please stop now.

      "I found a way to grate on the waffles idiots."

      ...you seriously think you decreased their utility in any way? Ok, for starters, I'll refer you to my previous advice: be less dumb. But even setting aside the stupidity of thinking you bothered them by crying at them in local, you are taking pride in having made another person unhappy. But you call us names because we engage in "griefing"....which is deliberately making other people unhappy.

    45. Listen Snookie, no need to get mad. Maybe you should step back and take a break? Go lick your ass for a few. You may feel better.

    46. Accurately pointing out what a miserable excuse for a human being DJ is, that he is both vile and despicable, does not make me angry, it just makes me right. And the Erotica1 bonus rooms were absolutely a form of psychological torture. Ripard Teg explained it well at http://jestertrek.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-bonus-round.html

      So yes, you can torture people in a video game - not all torture involves physical harm. I will continue to call out reprehensible conduct by CODE and by the Goonswarm Federation. See http://themittani.com/features/alod-go-back-wow see also http://themittani.com/features/ancient-history-currin-trading-confession

      My purpose was not to decrease the utility of waffles. My purpose was to make them question their own self worth. Which I succeeded in doing. I made then understand how pathetic it is to camp gates, and to farm easy kills. I opened their eyes to other forms of gameplay. My purpose was not to make them unhappy, it was to expand their Eve horizons and to improve their game. It's the same thing I do on this blog, and the same thing I am doing with you right now, scrub.

      "My purpose was to make them question their own self worth. Which I succeeded in doing."

      Ohhhhhh, Veers. Veers veers veers. There's really nothing to say. Believe whatever makes you happy, I suppose. And if it makes you happy to believe that you've made others doubt their self-worth, go nuts. It's not like you're harming anyone. Except me, possibly, 'cause I don't know how much more head-shaking my poor vertebrae can withstand.

    51. I've read it. I just don't find "some guy chose to stay up past his bedtime because internet space pixels are serious business" to be equivalent with "torture". Call me crazy, but they seem pretty different to me. And they seemed pretty different to him, too. Why not ask Sokhar himself if what he experienced was torture? I mean, who would know better than the person who had the experience?

    52. Like his wife suffering a panic attack and the thugs on ts telling her to "get a paper bag?" How despicable can you get? If he got riled up to the point of smashing his computer, or physically harming himself, would you still be laughing? Apparently CCP found this to be no laughing matter. Ditto for Mittens encouraging someone to commit suicide. Look, it's fine to enjoy a video game. It's not fine to inflict wanton emotional anguish on people.

    1. Confirming that James 315 does not log in daily, say hello to us, enjoy some chat in the minerbumping channel and share his divine blessings with our catalysts of fury.

      That never happens. It seemed to happen today, but i'm sure that's just some elaborate scheme to confuse the "Ivy League" space legal team you have formed to stamp out fun in video games.

    2. James is euro tz, right? I'm sad that I haven't gotten to see him yet, but then I'm us-tz, lame, and have to go to bed early all the time. It'd be wonderful to see our Saviour in person! Well, y'know, "in person". I think I literally "squeeeee!"d when I saw sasha, loyalanon, and kalorned. If I saw james I think I might actually fall out of my chair with pure joy.

    3. Yes, rumour has it his royal duties keep him busy outside of game.

    4. He's around at various times - and you can't really predict it based on any TZ, like a lot of us. Just hang out and look for the whole channel to suddenly erupt with waves and requests for holy blessings :)

    6. D'awww, that sniper thorax in Catch. What's the story Veers, were you coming to play with us (HERO)? Next time send a note or something to tell us you're coming, I hadn't done any housekeeping! Wrecks and cans all over the place, very unsightly

  17. Despite all the naysayers saying CODE. only ganks and never helps, Minerbumping.com and James315 have introduced me yet another Eve-related tool that I'd previously been unaware of that can help prevent your getting ganked.

    However I predict the number of Carebears that will listen will be approximately 0. :(

    1. Call them what you want; the fact remains that Eve is not a safe game and you need to use everything at your disposal to stay safe. All too often I see carebears go "CODE. is terrible! I want Highsec to be safe!" or they'll begrudgingly accept that they can't do anything about CODE. because that's the way the game is, and then sit there for 15 minutes waiting for the "inevitable" to happen because "the mechanics favor CODE. and CCP won't do anything about it :(".

      The fact is there are a considerable number of tools available to keep you safe. Back when CODE. started ganking freighters in Aufay, I was making a shipment from the area around Hek to Jita. Aufay was on my route. However, because I examine my route before I head out in my billion ISK ship, I noticed something odd was going on there. And I hit avoid. I got to Jita. A corpmate doing a similar run at the same time lost his freighter in Aufay. He wasn't autopiloting, but he still died all the same. Generally unless you're really unlucky and are the first to hit a system right as a gank group hits it, you should be able to avoid getting in to a freighter gank situation in the first place, and there's even a few tactics to escape bumps once you've gotten bumped (which I won't share because should my ship ever get caught in a bump, I'd like a few aces up my sleeve that CODE. doesn't know about/won't be expecting in order to not lose my ship. Posting them here ensures that CODE. knows about them and would be able to adapt with a strategy I haven't seen before, and I may not be able to counter it in time. Basically opsec and all that)

      Even if you're mining, there's ways to deal with ganks. My first encounter with CODE. was actually while I was mining. One of their scouts landed in my belt and started moving towards me. I wasn't aware of suicide ganking miners at the time, but that a combat ship would land and start moving towards my Venture seemed odd. So I recalled drones and aligned to station. Ship warped off and 30 seconds later loyalanon entered system, and 10 seconds later was bragging about killing a mackinaw in local. Had he warped in on me - especially with -10 security status showing up on my overview - I'd have been able to warp instantly to the station and dock up before he was able to land, even without using D-scan (which I didn't know about at the time. I was a noob). It really wasn't that hard to be paranoid enough to spot the gank coming, even if I wasn't fully aware of what they were doing. I just had to be at my keyboard and be observant.

      CODE. may not come right out and outline the specific things you need to do in order to survive their ganks, but I don't blame them for that; they probably have similar reasons to why I don't do it. But, they often do give insight in to their tactics and sometimes post things that lead you to various tools which you can use to stay alive, as happened with the reference to EveEye. You just have to look for them; like many things in the game, it's not going to be handed to you on a silver platter.

      If you think it should be, then by all means make an organization to do that. You want CODE. to teach newbies how to not get suicide ganked? Go out there and find the noobs the same way CODE. does, and instead of ganking them educate them. Teach them how to survive in highsec. Hell, ask Eve University if they'd let you do some guest lecturing on the subject; that'd allow you to reach many new players easily.

  19. I'd have to agree with Threadnaught on his points, I don't particularly like CODE. methods but its not to hard to avoid them. Or be to insignificant to be banked. I was in Uedema during the freighter bust and was able to salvage a lot of wrecks unaccosted. Good roleplaying (a little much at times) and tends to catch some people off guard but I really think CODE. guys are just a nuisance at best. If only entering null-sec was a bit safer sigh
