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.
"I decided to get into that freighter killing business. It wasn't as hard as people make it out to be."ReplyDelete
People here have been telling otherwise. Someone is lying..
And who would run missions is a PvP ship? I guess James is not as good in game mechanics as he thinks.
"And who would run missions is a PvP ship?"Delete
Bots and bot aspirants: do keep up, I guess you're not so good with the game as you think.
So, enemies of the CODE run missions in way that CODE would like, which would be in a fail fit ship. Sounds legit.Delete
Typical garbage. Thankfully now that Marmite is on the case we will be seeing less of this nonsense.ReplyDelete
Ahh - Veers. It's Toulouse Lautrec's birthday - should be a happy day for dwarves like you, eh?Delete
You prove my point, so thank you. Spitting out "idiot" at every retort is very mulish. You need to expand your vocabulary.Delete
We use the right word to describe the right anon too afraid to use his in-game name.Delete
Nope, you first. Why are dwarves like you not happy on Toulouse's birthday? You owe me the courtesy.Delete
Not a dward, don't know who Toulouse is, and I'm always happy.Delete
Mr Tritbar, please tell us more about the last exciting time you shot at some red plusses which was completely unlike the last time you shot at some red plusses. Then start a blog about that which gets millions of hits because it's so well written and entertaining.Delete
Then thrill us all with your quality of strategic thought - where you expand upon how your shooting of red plusses is not a desperate attempt to grind plex alone like the Jonny No Mates you are, but rather an altruistic act for the betterment of Eve as a whole.
And none of your usual straw man diversions please.
Anon 1:12 AM, calling someone ignorant for not knowing some not particularly famous painter. Knowing when he was born and bragging with that knowledge tells more about your character.Delete
My only response would be happy birthday Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec :) How can anyone *not* know of Toulouse?? That's like, high school level intro to art.Delete
@Anon 7:08am so this not particularly famous painter wasn't advertised across Google?Delete
@DJ I'm just shocked and horrified that the great and all-wise Veers professed ignorance. Even more bizarrely he didn't start a 30-page attention seeking rant on EveO. Is he well?
Wasn't advertised in my Google.Delete
Such a pity you missed out. Here you go, learn something about this post-impressionist legend: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri_de_Toulouse-LautrecDelete
Really? You did notice I knew who you were talking about?Delete
There are some very amazing looking photos in that collection, kudos BeBopAReBop RhubarbPie. Bing BangBoom has always been one of my greatest role models I look up to - he enforces The Code with such amazing style and 'psssshh'.ReplyDelete
It needs more... Pssshhhhh
GREAT collection of screencaps!Delete
This is "Kills of the Week", not "Kills of Two Weeks Ago". Try to keep up.ReplyDelete
veers just can't let a MB article go without commenting on it, must suck to be so obsessed with something you can't do anything about.ReplyDelete
Oh, but he *can* do something! Didn't you know, shiptoasting is elite pvp?Delete
It's much more PvP than popping afk ships, right?Delete
You really believe that leaving snide comments on random forums is more "spaceship combat" than when one spaceship shoots another spaceship?Delete
I was talking about PvP, not exclusively about spaceship combat. There is a difference you know.Delete
....ok. What does "PvP" mean to you, so that comments characterize it better than spaceship combat does?Delete
PvP comes from words "Player versus Player". Here players fight each other verbally, while in "popping afk ships" there's one player shooting a spaceship that does have a pilot and fights back less than a "red cross".Delete
....you really think commenting is a form of "fighting". While shooting another player's ship, is not fighting. The mind of a carebear....Delete
You really think shooting spaceships that don't have a pilot to be PvP? The mind of a wannabe-ganker...Delete
You guys are helping me to become a real celebrity, and you can't do anything about it :)ReplyDelete
Imposter. I was already a celebrity on the forums without CODE.Delete
Imposter. I was already a celebrity in the office without the forums. Nobody else in the building can take a wedgie nearly as well as I can. Veers always wins!Delete
Code always win?ReplyDelete
Why do they need allies in the war against The Marmites then?
So can someone explain to me, how a single Hurricane Fleet Issue was able to gank a freighter with over 200k EHP? I really don't get it....ReplyDelete
This is an informative blog. Keep it up. I am looking forward to this kind of blog. Thanks for sharing it with us www.avg.com/retailReplyDelete
