The New Order is the center of all EVE today. Everyone who plays the game knows this. Yet when we imagine the New Order and its Code, we don't visualize a giant star around which everything else revolves (some picture me this way, which I find flattering but don't officially endorse). Instead, we see the New Order as a thousand points of light--countless Agents doing good work across highsec. Let's look at some of the points of light that shone during the week of November 16th @ 00:00 EVEtime through November 22nd @ 23:59 EVEtime.
Agent BeBopAReBop RhubarbPie put together a photo album of screenshotted freighter ganks. The photos are 5760x1080, so I can't do them justice in this space. Check out the photo album yourself and enjoy.
At first glance, Baalsebub lost a 2.9 billion isk freighter while blundering through my territory without a permit. On second glance, we notice that his blueprints were originals. Whoops...
zKillboard values the loss at over 15 billion isk. Naturally, Baalsebub used three cargo expanders on his freighter, maximizing cargo space and minimizing hitpoints. Which would make sense if highsec were 100% safe and we all wanted to play EVE like bots. Agents Clarice Avrill, Klapen, Oshrog, Braggs Seyllin, Duramah, loyalanon, Immortalis Vitium, Martyr Oira, Sasha Cohenberg, BeBopAReBop RhubarbPie, BlackSack, Nikko Salters, Bypbyp, Ahab Of Pequod, and Zephia Soprano enforced their own different perspective on the game.
Kiriene didn't lose the most expensive of the jump freighters suicide ganked this week, but her Anshar loss was notable for another reason:
Sixty-eight participants, acting as a kind of United Nations of gankers, took part in this kill. Many alliances were represented, including several that are at war with each other. Topping them all was our own Agent Dekiranu of New Order Logistics, who inflicted the most damage. You can read the rest of the honour roll on the killmail.
What ever happened to keeping one's belongings in a station? Dors Venabili Seldon speed-tanked her Orca and packed in all her EVEly possessions--six and a half billion isk worth. She was doomed even before she left her keyboard. When she chose not to purchase a permit, an expensive Orca killmail became inevitable. Dors was executed by a motley crew of Gavrila Master, wzI, FautzX, Artem Ice, Stella Uta, Dichzor, Serafin Falcon, Kanonissa Selena Agna, Xae Kae, Dekiranu, Virtum, Sova Omaristos, HABEPHO, Komuto Huevato, and ChangKaiShi.
Rhoagan Johanson of Grasping At Straws corporation lived up to her corp's name when she fit out her 4 billion isk Golem. She could've chosen a proper PvP ship to run her little missions or whatever, but she wanted something she could put a bunch of tractor beams and salvagers on. Not today, friend. Agents FauztX, Kanonissa Selena Agna, Dekiranu, Sova Omaristos, Raimor, Dichzor, Artem Ice, SPIwere, Narl' Amhar, Baboon Copper, Prototype 288, Nik Makeev, Megamaks T44, Slash Jet, Lexx Min, Unprecedented, Gavrila Master, Casey Acura, Xae Kae, Djokart, Benglish, Kosaki Shi, Njals, RazDDva, Andre Crow, and HABEPHO cooked this turkey--just in time for Thanksgiving!
Kurgal Wolf lost a triple-anti-tanked freighter. Nothing new there. But unlike the rest of the loot piñatas, Kurgal's freighter wasn't popped by a huge gank fleet...
A single Agent of the New Order, empowered by his or her conviction in the Code, can move mountains. Or destroy freighters. The irrepressible Bing Bangboom remarked, "I decided to get into that freighter killing business. It wasn't as hard as people make it out to be."
Speaking of things that aren't as hard as people make them out to be, how about buying a New Order mining permit? They're only 10 million isk and available for purchase all year 'round. You'll be so glad you did. Judging by the kills this week, you could be awfully sorry if you don't.
