Good PvE'ers take pride and comfort in the sight of our fearless Agents patrolling highsec. The New Order is here to ensure your stay in empire space is an enjoyable one. Of course, there is no genuine enjoyment of EVE in highsec, apart from the Code. In the long run, failure to comply leaves one feeling empty. Therefore it is necessary to kill all those who violate the Code. Let's take a look at some players whose enjoyment of EVE was enhanced during the week of October 19th @ 00:00 EVEtime through October 25th @ 23:59 EVEtime.
And in case you're wondering how likely it is that your carebearism will be detected and penalized, consider this:
zKillboard's stats for CODE. alliance show we've inflicted over 1 trillion isk of damage so far this month. Before, it took much longer to reach a trillion. The first 8 months of CODE. stats combined (from January 2013 through August 2013) added to over a trillion. Now, a trillion isk of damages in about three and a half weeks.
Tit Clodius was puttering around in a rookie ship, autopiloting his way through Uedama. He was caught and terminated by Agent PV Rock. Before you carebears start in with any of that "bullying new players" business, take a look at the isk value of the kill.
A pair of PLEX in the cargo of a rookie ship? There's no reason to be hauling around PLEX like that. Under the Code, it's considered evidence of RMT. We don't take kindly to such things. Tit wrote PV Rock a friendly little note:
From: Tit ClodiusOh, also, having a "Civilian Miner" equipped to your ship without a mining permit? That suggests an intent to illegally mine. If you cannot yet afford a permit, please unfit the Civilian Miner from all your rookie ships before undocking.

To: PV Rock,
Thank you very much, i've lost two plexes just due to lack of knowledge of Your System, being here for the first time. Nice day/night to You. Hope, my 2 plexes will lift your mood. With greetings from Ukraine!
Among the many freighters killed lately was Mike Westwood's Providence. He had a lot of garbage in his cargo, but this did not go unnoticed:
More RMT! It's incredible what these carebears try to get away with. Mike's plans were brought to ruin by Agents Angel Pirate, [Anal Canal], Ilithyia Borgia, de4deye, Ariadne Andenare, Amyclas Lacedaemon, Norek Crendraven, Zombiepilot, loyalanon, Lament von Gankenheim, Quaker Oatmeal, Phillips Helljumper, holdmybeer, BulletMagnetMan, LG Hades, Held der Finsternis, Mya Marie, Shane Merol, Elza Laduko, and Josabech Abellan.
Raivo Tujulikkinen's crystal set was shattered by Agent PV Rock, who's still killing auto-piloting bot-aspirants, in case anyone hasn't gotten the memo yet. When put on notice, the carebear tried to explain away his crimes in a convo.
Raivo Tujulikkinen > not understand. what problem for you of my autopiloting in jita?Rights are funny things. Your right to fly a ship ends where someone else's right to blow up your ship begins.
PV Rock > Autopiloting is deemed to be botting by the New Order of Highsec
Raivo Tujulikkinen > 32 jumps...i do not see reasons to fly manually in free ship
PV Rock > The reason not to autopilot is that we will destroy your ships and kill you
Raivo Tujulikkinen > it,s my leopard, and my right to fly on autopilot, with no cargo isn't it?
PV Rock > It's not your leopard now, it's a wreck
Raivo Tujulikkinen > the next one, for exaple
Raivo Tujulikkinen > all hisec?Raivo reasoned that our inability to stop 100% of crime makes us bandits. By that logic, all law enforcement is banditry. Yet, at the rate we're going, one day we will stop all Code violations.
PV Rock > Indeed, all highsec
PV Rock > Unfortunately we cannot enforce the law everywhere all the time
Raivo Tujulikkinen > it means you are not able to enforce the law throughout the claimed your territory, from which it follows that you are bandits, not keepers of the law
Raivo Tujulikkinen > for example, i said - you are...mmm...maniac because that just kill. this legal?
Raivo Tujulikkinen > it turns out that you killed me, not having the slightest reason, except suspicion. this is banditry
Raivo Tujulikkinen > so where is crime? the rules of EVE do not forbid to fly on autopilotWho am I? Let me put it this way: Before doing something, you should ask yourself, "Would James 315 approve of this?" If not, don't do it. The same principle applies to thoughts as well as actions, since we all know bad actions are merely symptomatic of bad thoughts.
PV Rock > It is the law of highsec as set down by our Saviour James 315
Raivo Tujulikkinen > what is this freak? James 315
PV Rock > Freak? That is deeply insulting to the Supreme Protector
Raivo Tujulikkinen > this automation allowed a much more authoritative persons than your Savior - administration and creators of the universe
PV Rock > But to be sure he is no ordinary man, he is much more
Raivo's 3 billion isk pod was nice, but isn't our Pod of the Week. Check out Kroaky Oke's 4.7 billion isk disaster. This was also one of Agent PV Rock's kills. The bot-aspirants have been keeping him busy! Impressive as it was, this wasn't our Pod of the Week, either. See below.
Now this is a podkill. X-FEANOR was autopiloting in a 4.7 billion isk freighter. After the freighter was dispensed with, Agent Oshrog moved in to smash the pod. Your eyes do not deceive you: It's worth over 9.3 billion isk.
In fact, if you look at the Mid-grade Harvest Gamma implant--part of the set that improves mining lasers, of all things--it lists the isk value at zero, since Eve-Kill lacks market value for it. zKillboard values that implant at 554 million isk. Taken together, that's over 9.85 billion isk. Almost 10 billion isk for a single pod. This is our most expensive podkill to date.
Consider what X-FEANOR was thinking when he went AFK and set his freighter to autopilot through Uedama with its cargo and a nearly 10 billion isk pod. Your immediate reaction might be, "He wasn't thinking." He was, though. X-FEANOR was thinking highsec is 100% safe, and that he was taking no risk at all. He was thinking the Code isn't important, that a 10 million isk mining permit isn't worth it, and that the New Order poses no threat to his operations. He was wrong on all counts.
We could have argued with X-FEANOR. We might've tried to reason with him. In this instance, it was far simpler to give X-FEANOR a practical demonstration. The question for the reader is, what kind of person are you? Are you the kind who listens to reason, or are you the kind who needs to lose a 10 billion isk pod to learn your lesson?
