Kills of the Week: Justice Edition

A month ago this week, a wave of permabans was unleashed against numerous generators of emergent content in highsec. Among the fallen were several Agents of the New Order. Our enemies declared victory. They said it was the end of the Code. Our numbers would be on the decline, they said. We would no longer be able to field fleets of gankers. Highsec would finally be safe.


A funny thing happened this week.


The New Order and its allies came together and launched a "wave" of its own. It was a wave of justice. Naturally, justice came in the form of a lot of burning freighters and screaming carebears. How many is "a lot"? Allow me to put this campaign into perspective:

In 2012, the CFC/Goons announced their first Burn Jita event. It made headlines. A "traffic advisory" was put on the load screen for everyone who logged into the game. CCP Unifex did interviews about the event, calling Burn Jita "fucking brilliant". All told, the first Burn Jita resulted in the destruction of 53 freighters and 12 jump freighters.

Since October 4th, the New Order's fleets have killed at least 134 freighters and 10 jump freighters.

That's a lot.

The freighter-killing campaign spread panic all across the EVE galaxy. Rebels were confident they could stop our gankers. But when they saw fleets of 30-40 Catalysts pouring onto the freighters, the rebels could do nothing but flee in terror. They returned to their channels, which were filled with the usual backbiting, blame-gaming, and conspiracy-theorizing about why the New Order couldn't be stopped.

The panic even spread into nullsec, where owners of some of the freighters and jump freighters lived. The New Order's effects were felt everywhere. The organizer of EVE Down Under, Australia's biggest EVE fan gathering, lost his freighter (loaded with cruisers for the event) literally one second before downtime. EVE Down Under reported on the loss.

The venerable Red Frog Freight service was hit hard. In a shocking move, Red Frog announced they'd been forced to raise their price per jump by 43%. In addition, they were forced to take emergency measures for the rest of October, including a ban on all contracts starting or ending in Uedama, longer queues, and requiring their courier contracts to be given at least 10 days to complete. Red Frog could only guess about the cause of the ganking spree; they speculated it was nullsec rising in protest about the upcoming jump drive changes.


Fleet commander loyalanon soared to the #1 spot on zKillboard, inflicting more isk damage than any other player in the entire game. Here's a quote from loyalanon, who didn't seem very concerned about jump drives:
"Why am I doing this? To remind CCP and other players that code wont go away, and that we are still capable of destroying hundreds of billions of isk because we feel like it and because someone needs to keep the GM's in a job."
The destruction of the freighters was done to make a point. The New Order cannot be stopped. You cannot kill an idea. You cannot even ban an idea. The CODE will always win.


As long as we're here, let's enjoy looking at a handful of these numerous--though precious--kills. Rmaximus lost a freighter worth over 15 billion isk. Why was it so expensive, you ask?


...It contained a bunch of Panthers. Go figure.



Nothing was spared. Hireddig flew a fully-tanked jump freighter. It had nearly half a million raw hitpoints. What it didn't have: A mining permit. Or a chance of survival, once a fleet of 37 gankers landed on it.



Freighters and jump freighters weren't the only ships that tasted justice during the campaign. Giesha Girl's 2 billion isk agility-tanked Orca was torn apart.


Giesha wasn't bothered at all. Not in the least. The destruction of her 2 billion isk pride and joy was hilarious to her, because her death proved how pathetic everyone else is.



As usual, there were some monsters to slay. Azerath's 3 billion isk fail-fit Golem was put out of its misery as it attempted to transport goods through the system.



Pods weren't spared, either. mf198k was blissfully autopiloting in an anti-tanked freighter when he was caught and podded. Over 6 billion in implants were vaporized in an instant. FYI: Permits are on sale right now for only 10 million isk.



Although most of the action was in the freighter fleets, individual Agents continued their tireless efforts across highsec, enforcing the Code with quiet dignity. Naomi Whisperwind met one of those Agents, a good man named PV Rock. Naomi had a 1.8 billion isk Gallente Shuttle. She lost it. PV Rock convo'ed her and demanded an explanation of her crimes:
Naomi Whisperwind > i bought plex today in real money just to test out that module with my ship
Naomi Whisperwind > and i find it too much to have it on my ship even it worked out fine
Naomi Whisperwind > so i was going to sell it back to jita
As you can see, Naomi had no excuse. As long as we're talking about PV Rock's kills this week, I might as well add in one more little killmail:



Yowza! PopplerRo went on autopilot with a Leopard shuttle; Agent PV Rock removed the Leopard and took a bite into the 8.315 billion isk pod inside. This is one of the most expensive pods I've ever seen. There are no words. PopplerRo certainly didn't have any words after his loss--he didn't even a drop a "gf" in local. Typical Code-violator. I'd like to think Agent D400 was there with PV Rock, in spirit, when that pod was killed. I know D400 would be very proud.

All in all, it was a good week for the New Order. It was a good week for the Code, for highsec, for EVE, for emergent gameplay, for content creation... and a good week for our fallen comrades. We honour their memory every time a carebear dies.

So the New Order didn't end. It only grew more powerful, into the Most Relevant Organization in EVE. I'm sorry to disappoint our enemies. But I must confess...

We're only just getting started.

  4. Without the support of goons none of this would of ever been accomplished just remember that. Right now you would all be scratching your butts trying to figure out what to do without goon support. I can guarantee that 100%. If you don't believe me tell goons to stand down and watch your gank attempts fail because 20 rebels vs 20 CODE wankers is easy to defend against. Any rebuttal to this post will simply be CODE nodding its head in agreement.

    2. There are 20 rebels in new eden? First, at most there are like 1-2 rebels who actually try to stop the ganks. They fail and CODE always wins.

      There are like 3-5 rebels who like to whore on concord kills. They aren't there to stop any ganking but only to pad the AG killboard.

      Most of the the remaining "20" rebels are in Uedama spewing tears in local. If only CCP would retask the Rorqual to collect and refine these tears we'd have a whole new economic base to build upon.

      At no time in eve, have I had anything to do with the goons. Yet I happily donate isk to the code. That reasons simple, for rl players to have fun in a MMO game.
      Yet at the same time, have made many friends in eve along the way. From many differing game styles.

    5. Well, with regards to the bans - I'm just glad I could play a pivotal role in removing these unwanted sociopathic players from the game.

      Code is coming to an end soon no matter what filth you spew on this blog. The next code ban wave hopefully removes all of you - I will be petitioning and mailing as much as possible to make it happen again.

    5. CODE would rather stay in high-sec where its safe for them than venture into null sec. Carebears do stuff in high-sec because its safe. Code kills carebears in high-sec because its safe so I would have to say CODE = Carebears.

    6. Code actually strives to improve carebears (of all sorts). Since there are no carebears in null (or so you say) there is no Code in null.

    2. As both a Goon and a member of the New Order, I feel it is only natural that our two organizations cooperate against the One True Enemy, the hisec carebear.

      Every player that enjoys the PVP aspect of Eve has a vested interest in removing the carebear from the game. This is why you'll often see players who are at war with each other cooperating in New Order gankfleets--they both know that they can not enjoy their war should the carebear be allowed to continue his wicked ways.

    1. Ya his better line is "Bumping is effectively a warp scram and Concord needs to jump all over you for effectively scramming a poor 2 week old freighter pilot with all his isk sunk in that one ship auto piloting thru Uedama solo with 24 incursion ships wrapped up safely inside. I am an elite PvPer with almost zero kills to my name and Grrrrrr goons, eve-uni, RvB, CODE, AG crowd, Erotica1, or anyone who does not form up for constant 23/7 incursion running which is elite PvE hence elite PvP, and finally I got everyone banned from T20 onwards I just want Eve to be a grand theme-park and nerf all it's redeeming qualities to hell so no one will play it but butthurt incursion runners."

  14. This isn't about carebears, this is pure economic warfare. By pinching the supply lines through Uedama, and manipulating Jita markets. Goons mad, cause carebears won't compress the ores in hisec.

    If you are an ice miner in hisec, hoard it it all. Ore miner? Refine it all. Make them come to you and ASK nicely for it. Cut them off, for the way you have been treated for all these years.

    It is, after all, a sandbox. YOUR sandbox. It is time to make a stand, for all of empire space.

  15. Procurathon in November.

    Beginning in November, carebears of Eve will be taking to the belts with Procurers and Skiffs. en masse. Retrievers, Mackinaws, Hulks and Covetors will all be docked up.

    Coinciding with that will be The Great Drought, where ore and ice will be hoarded until the prices begin to go through the roof. And the carebears will wait, as the rest of Eve comes demanding it, asking for it, and then ultimately begging for it.

    Procurathon in November.

      This would be a step int he right direction, the spirit of James 315, the spirit of the Code, is the spirit of action and making a difference!

      But if the spirit of rebellion is in you, you will still fail. As Sister Maria states above only the Code saves.

      Keep an open heart. When your words fall on deaf ears, and your plans fail, (and they will) there is still hope for you in the New Order. Don't become a bitter vet.

      Learn the Code and join the fight to save EVE from the vile, self-serving, carebears!

      Now that would be something to see. The only problem is that the "carebear" is incapable of working together like that. They are too individualistic and don't care about the 'whole".
