Venture Killing Contest: Submit Your Entry!


August was a very fine month for killing Ventures, thanks to Anal Canal's Venture-killing contest, sponsored by CODEdot. We saw a lot of funny Venture kills, such as the 70 million isk Venture with a bunch of women's clothes, and this freighter, carrying 184 Ventures:


Now it's time for all the participants to submit their entries. By September 3rd, please EVEmail Anal Canal and/or loyalanon the following info:

- A link to your character's zKillboard.com board
- The number of individual Venture pilots you killed in August

Remember, it's not the number of Ventures, but unique Venture pilots, that counts. (The freighter kill didn't count for the contest; I just thought it was funny.) The contest coordinators will double-check the winners' scores, but you'll help them out a lot if you do the counting for your own results yourself.

Since the contest was open to all players, not just members of CODEdot or the New Order, I don't think anyone knows how high a score you'll need in order to claim one of the prizes. Send in your entry and find out! See this post for the list of prizes.

    1. Veers, you are an idiot. CCP Falcon weighed in and blessed this.

    2. Oh, Mr. Anonymous blog poster afraid to post with his in-game name, he blessed it, huh? Care to show me where?

    4. To my dear Anal-Canal (who is brave enough to post with his in-character name....I was aware of the post, and will now like it to let others judge just what kind of "blessing" it constitutes.

      The way I read this is that a PLEX will be awarded to the youngest pilot who takes part in the competition and goes out to kill ventures, rather than the youngest victim that's killed in the event. If this is the case, then there's no problem in my mind.

      This event seems along the lines of "Hulkageddon", just on a far smaller and less grand scale. It also seems to be targeting a specific class of ship rather than all barges and mining ships.

      This thread has been reported to us a number of times for potentially being a source of rookie griefing, so here's the lowdown on where we stand:

      While there are no rules against running an event of this nature and frankly we don't want to start trying to control the actions of players within EVE, ventures are typically flown by relatively young players who are working toward flying larger and more efficient mining hulls.

      With this in mind, please be aware that if this event becomes a source of rookie griefing, or begins to take place in and around rookie starting systems where new players are being harassed, then our policies on new player harassment and griefing will come into play.

      Tread very carefully with this event, as rookie player harassment is something we take extremely seriously, and punishment for violation of these policies is often swift and harsh.

      If you have any questions about our rookie harassment policies, you can file a support ticket and ask the GM Team.

    5. I remember being a noob a bit over a year ago. I flew a venture, and got blown up before my trial was over.

      I loved it! (okay, I rarely flew a venture again... Mining is not my thing...)

      The fact that you have to keep looking over your shoulder, the fact that if you're good at looking over your shoulder you get killed less (and get more kills, although that took at least half a year for me), and the fact that not everyone is good at looking over their shoulder are the three reasons that made EVE so attractive to me. I don't think shooting people gets them to quit, my experience (anecdotal, I must admit) says otherwise.

    7. Veers if you spent more time actually playing the game and less time haunting your enemies website giving them massive increases in traffic maybe life might be slightly more enjoyable?
      Also, where's Mr CAPITAL LETTERS?

      Delete
    8. Life is extremely enjoyable. My current favorite Eve activity, incursions, is not available right now due to Goons killing all the mother ship sites (j/k - sadly enough a civil war in the incursion community is currently making them impossible to run). On the other hand, Mr. Anonymous blogger afraid to post with his in game name, I'm having a lot of fun debating CODE on various forums, and life is really enjoyable right now. How are you enjoying life, sir? Feel free to respond with your in-game name.

    9. Proof James 315 is amazing. Who else aside for James and his disciples could possibly create debates all over the interwebs, aside for dear leader Mittens? James 315, the Mittani, and E1, best players to happen to Eve, ever.

      Delete
    10. Actually it was me, not them. Until I started discussing on the Eve forums, there wasn't much chatter. And now most of the suicide gankers there claim CODE is a "joke" and that this website is a "comedy blog with links."

      Delete
    11. Beers Veldspar aspires to be a charismatic and powerful leader, but he doesn't want to do the hard work necessary to make that happen. Instead, he gutlessly chooses to criticize the New Order and James 315 in a misguided attempt to bring them down to his own level. He talks a lot and produces zero results.

      Delete
    12. Accusations of gutlessness from an anonymous blog poster afraid to post with his in game name....ooooh, thjat is just rich....keep up the good work, bro. And I'm not looking to lead, I'm looking for CCP to fix the game.

    16. If only I had another reservoir to fill with delicious veers tears.

      How come you haven't stopped me ganking yet bro?

      Keep reading my killboard bro - you admiring?

      Delete
    17. I'm not really interested in stopping you from exploiting mechanics like bumping to gank people. It's not worth my time to interfere with broken and abused game mechanics. I'd rather raise the issue with CCP, demonstrate the problem and let them take action. Meanwhile I know I am eating you up inside, best demonstrated by banning me from the 2 in game chat channels. Who is crying now?

      Delete
    18. You forgot - "valid" game mechanics bro.

      Hows your petition coming along? lol

      I think they have already addressed your tears regarding bumping bro -

      I love being a moderator of channels so I can ban crybabies. LOL.

      Let me know when you get on my level kid.

      Delete
    19. You forgot - "exploited" game mechanics bro. Just like the people who used to slingshot Concord.

      I didn't file a petition - I've simply raised the point in forums and started a discussion.

      And it's not tears, it's pointing out the exploitation of a game mechanics.

      The biggest crybabies are the banners themselves, such as yourself.

      I try to not decline in life, and it would be a big drop to stoop to your level, "kid." Instead I will continue to call out your griefing and use of exploits, your sad attempts to kill new players, induce tears, and get them to quit the game, just like the the venture killing contest. I will continue to stand up for a better, happier, safer highsec, where new players can learn to play the game without being relentlessly ganked and griefed by miserable people with low self esteem who use a video game to drown out their sorrows.

      See you around the block, "kid."

    20. yeah you mad.

      also I didnt read bro was too long.

    21. I'm quite happy, actually. Showing what a shyster and a sham the CEO of CODE is happen to be a very entertaining activity. And to paraphrase DJ "If 150 words is too long for you to read, consider a remedial English class" (do they have those in Scotland?).

      Delete
    22. Even 50 words is too much now? You shooting for dumbest CEO in the history of Eve now? I mean, how stupid can you be already?

      Ill give you a hint, keep watching my killboard it will determine your success.

    27. Meh, I'm having fun fighting against griefers and exploiters like you. Victory isn't the end here, enjoyment is. Glad you managed to read my post this time, I know that can be a struggle for you.

      Delete
    28. Let me explain something Veers. James has created something special. Something I have devoted my gameplay to right until the "end." The New Order of Highsec is not about one man, or even a group. It is an idea. A great idea that spreads virally. James could stop posting right now and guess what would happen. Others would step up to take his place and continue the expansion of the New Order. Just like when I was martyred for the sandbox, others took what I created and carried on the proud tradition. The bonus rounds have continued for at least a half trillion additional isk since I stopped doing them. This isk has been removed from the unfaithful and spread to the faithful. On any given day while James is off doing whatever he does outside of game, tens of billions worth of illegal ships are blown up, not in his name alone, but in the name of the New Order. Even if the New Order were to fracture, it would not fall apart. Instead, it would blossom into various sects, just like religion. You could say it's the religion of New Eden. In a game of internet spaceships, an idea created by a brilliant player has taken hold in the hearts and minds of players everywhere. And it is spreading.

      One day I am coming back, with or without the blessing I have petitioned for. And when that day comes, I have but one goal: To use every means possible, within game and within the EULA, to speed up the progress of 100% CODE compliance. Even if we have to blow up a quadrillion isk worth of internet spaceships, we will do what is necessary, because we are the New Order. Highsec needs us.

      (*edit for the faithful, the captcha was 315)

      Delete
    29. I can't wait to tell my grandkids that I was here this day. The first great prophet of the New Order, after the Saviour himself, has spoken and given us great hope! She will rise again and lead armies against our enemies until they crumble before us. My next child shall be named Ero. You have my sword.

    33. Erotica 1,

      Look, I think CCP did you wrong. I'm a laywer, and you committed no crime. CCP axed you for PR reasons, and that is really BS. On the other hand, you are really not a good guy. You are a scamming isk doubler, you got chucked from goons for doing weird stuff, and you emotionally tortured people in your "bonus room." I don't think you should be focusing on further griefing and blowing people up. Why not try to help new players, run missions with them, etc...?

      Delete
    34. I miss Erotica. She laid out and detailed so many awesome plans. When she does return, I wouldn't want to be one on her naughty list...

      She's probably one of the only players in the history of the game to be able to discretely rebuild a war chest from her network of friends and fans.

      Aside from the negative connotations, she's basically Hitler, in a good warm and fuzzy way.

      Delete
    35. I feel better now, he's a space laywer. Wait, what?

      Delete
    36. I do help new players, I bring them the CODE. It does seem ironic, though, that all the players who lost the bonus round were bittervets. You'd think they'd be smarter. I am well known for my philanthropy. I'm basically Space Robin Hood. Thousands of new players benefited in isk and advice. Old players got a chance to start over. Have faith.

      Delete
    37. You gave all your isk to CODE so they could blow up ships and make people cry. That is not "philanthropy."

      Delete
    38. Veers Belvar, that's a great idea for next months event (blowing up lv1 mission runners, or any mission runner). But I think since you put the idea forward, we should include the incursion runners.


      And on the point of Erotica 1, what style of play the person does, doesn't mean they aren't a nice guy. They act a role in a computer game. Doesn't mean they are one bit like that in RL.

      Delete
    39. Ya for sure the incursions runners...see https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=366607&p=3

      So far in 6 days of the incursion ganking contest there have been.....0 kills.....now granted the prizes are pretty pathetic (rattlesnakes, really? Don't they give those away for free?), but this is definitely reinforcing the meme that CODE is great at shooting helpless noob ships like ventures, and ships that can't shoot back like miners and freighters, but pretty darn pathetic at shooting real targets, like incursion fleets.

      Delete
    40. I gave my isk to CODE to make highsec a better place while bonus rounding myself. Other assets went to trusty escrow agents to continue the good work. Plenty of assets are still locked up across more than 20 accounts. We cannot control tear production. We would prefer immediate enlightenment, but it is natural for some to cry first. As far as my trustworthiness, I also happened to be a director in the executor corp and gave isk directly there to pay alliance bills (and cover my numerous wardecs). Isk doubling is something I am good at, but my honor remains intact. My friends trust me, and I trust them.

      Separately, I showered isk and assets throughout my time in game to random strangers. Some people got free plex, ships, or just a multiple of their wealth, no strings attached. When business was slow, I'd give billions away to random locals along with advice. I did the same in the forum. Then, they'd watch in glee as others would visit Jita only to fail the rules. It's a virtuous cycle.

      I wasn't kicked from Goons. That was a story concocted and repeated ad naseum after DJ and I got into tussle over the Heavy Rayne scandal. You should know better. But I still love Goons and dear leader himself. You could say that's what separates me from the average person. I don't anger easily and can accept sacrifices for the common good.

      Think of New Eden as a tasty blue donut with a special filling on the inside. that inside is the New Order of highsec, a special recipe of James 315.

      It is safe to say that I, and the rest of the New Order, have made far more people laugh than cry. For every sad carebear, there are hundreds, if not thousands of happy supporters. But still, we don't wish that they cry. What we want is for them to embrace goodness like we have, like the winners of the bonus round have done.

      You may recall in the heated debate over my future in game, I made it clear that I don't even wish any illwill on my biggest critic, Ripard Teg. After all, if he had been banned for his gross abuses of power, he wouldn't have experienced all the lovely in game blowback that he did (and more to come hehe). :o)

      You see Veers, there is much more to me and to the New Order than the elevator speeches and talking points that you come across out there. We are complex, good, wonderful people who just want to have fun and make the game better for everyone.

      Please do join us and set aside minor differences. I look foward to blowing up internet spaceships with you and laughing together on comms.

    9. As agent Ima Wreckyou put it on the Eve Forums "Highsec game mechanics have been constantly nerfed for the last 11 years and everytime some guy claims this is the final nerf which will "fix" the game for them. And then the nerf get's implemented, we adopt and the tears start over with a new idea abut a small nerf that will "fix" the game."

      So CCP obviously does listen and change things.

    10. So veers insults people that disagrees with him lol.

    12. I suppose imitation is a form of flattery, but try to have the balls to post with your in-game name, rather than vainly trying to steal my identity.

      While agreeing with some of your comment's you made in my name, I see what you did there, attempting to make me look like those CODE fellows with their "superior" attitude. If I ever become a snob like them, you can call me out on that.
