Kills of the Week

Hey, who's up for a fish fry? For the purposes of this post, I'll assume you said you were. Well, then, you've come to the right place. This week saw a lot of dead Orcas in highsec. And while the newer readers pause to ask why Orcas are being referred to as fish, the rest of us will proceed to look at kills from the week of February 8th @ 00:00 EVEtime through February 14th @ 23:59 EVEtime.

Before the fish, an appetizer:


Yikes! Quest Guerner's 7.2 billion isk shuttle is as filling as any entrée and more expensive than most. Quest was smartbombed by Agent Santo Trafficante in a 1.0 security system. Initially, the crime was AFK autopiloting an untanked ship through highsec (without a permit, naturally). The killmail was reviewed, and additional charges were brought:


Looks like RMT to me. The New Order always brings criminals to justice.



The shuttle killmail was a bit too intense for an appetizer, but Chur Maori Kiwimadness's 1.9 billion isk anti-tanked Mammoth will do nicely. Agent Tisiphone Dira vaporized the bot-aspirant and all of the garbage he was hauling. Who needs a freighter when you can produce a multi-billion isk lossmail by flying a hauler with even less tank?



Kagami Kusanagi lost an Orca to Agent Faby Rasputin. No killmail was produced, but this is no fish story...


In fact, Kagami proved that the fish are biting these days. After our hero discovered Kagami's Orca abusing the local asteroids with mining drones, she was stunned to see the carebear unleash attack drones. Agent Faby had suspect status for reasons that were no one else's business, and Kagami took it upon herself to attack.


Another Orca pilot learned that our Agents are more than capable of shooting ships that shoot back (or shoot first). Kagami also learned the futility of the verbal warp core stabilizer.


Oh, and she learned about the Code for the first time. Seriously, by this point, only a bot-aspirant is capable of living in highsec and not hearing about the Code. Therefore, a miner who doesn't know the Code should be considered in violation of the Code.


The greedy Orca miner proved to be a Goofus. Hence the Orca wreck. Is it even possible for an Orca pilot to be Gallant? Read on...



Hofer Manuel lost a fail-fit anti-tanked Orca to Agents AJ Abrams, Faby Rasputin, and Noah Johansen. Nothing unusual about that.


...Except that Hofer was streaming himself at the time. The stream became much more exciting once our Agents entered the picture. Highsec in a nutshell.


Then it was time for Hofer and his audience to learn about the Code. Hofer had tasted PvP for the first time and wanted more. After buying some mining permits, Hofer went out to gank a Retriever on his main. Now that's how a Gallant handles losing an Orca!



Ugh. The final fish is the fattest: Vanguarder's 6.2 billion isk Orca, which was apparently packed with everything Vanguarder owned and autopiloted through Niarja. Agents Sasha Cohenberg, Jason Kusion, Ms Minmay, Give me Theloot, kaz89, and unknown boat were ready for the fight that was about to take place. Vanguarder, less so. Happy Valentine's Day from the New Order!



Xerxes X lost a freighter, but our heroes weren't done with him yet. Agents Lisa Tears and Minchurra popped his Capsule, which was filled with Snake implants, among other things. Add in the value of the Zainou Large Hybrid Turret implant--worth about half a billion isk--and you're talking about a 4.6 billion isk pod. Because every good fish fry ends with desert.

  1. Blog post not written by James....poor grammar, lack of sophistication, and rather flat. Might as well stop the facade - James is gone for good.

    2. Wondering if he finaly got tired of scamming new order and descided to run.

    3. Notice the proliferation of short sentences, poor flow, and mediocre vocabulary. James, for all his faults, at least writes well. This guy is a total joke. At least put DJ in charge or something.

    4. Maybe we should compare it to your blog... oh wait, you don't have a blog.
      Alrighty then, I guess we all know now where to file your opinion on this subject.

    5. Veers, as usual, makes foolish claims that are unsupported by evidence. He's just pushing a bunch of fear, uncertainty and doubt.

      A quick and dirty discriminant analysis to test for authorship shows high self-similarity with other members of the corpus. In other words, today's post isn't an outlier.

    6. Compare... http://www.minerbumping.com/2012/10/the-curious-case-of-capt-lynch-part-4.html

      Obviously not the same author.

      Also notice the overly short sentences in the first paragraph...

      "Hey, who's up for a fish fry? For the purposes of this post, I'll assume you said you were. Well, then, you've come to the right place. This week saw a lot of dead Orcas in highsec.

      Obviously not James 315...might be AC, might be John E Normus...but James 315 it sure ain't.

    7. Oh noes. After removing Erotica 1 and loyalanon from the game, does he hint that James 315 is also being forced out of MB writing committee?

      Veers, please have mercy on New Order. Let at least some of us stay in game.

    8. No worries anonymous poster too afraid to post with his in-game name...I'm happy to allow you to stay in the new order...part of the yella belly division.

    9. No worries Veers who was too afraid to undock when loyalanon was in system with him.

    10. lol....why would i undock in a shuttle? I was there to intellectually crush chode. Mission accomplished.

    11. Intellectually crushing code is easy veers, thou kinda unfair, your taking them on in a battle of wits and they are unarmed, just saying.

    13. Getting real tired of your shit, fake Veers.

      All the other Veers present are me. This should be obvious to anyone, since literary analysis is not an activity which corresponds to an in-game money-making mechanism, and I'm not being paid even through out-of-game channels to engage in said analysis. Since there could be no profit motive for me to engage in analysis of James 315's writing style, doing so anyway could only be done for sociopathic reasons, and must constitute real-life harassment. Being a mighty space lawyer who would never engage in real-life harassment or sociopathic behavior, literary analysis is obviously something I would never do.

      You idiots.

  3. Why do people insist on APing while carrying PLEX in their cargohold? Parting a fool from their money is such a sweet outcome, one can only hope to have such opportunities rise before them.

  4. It's been a long road
    Getting from there to here
    It's been a long time
    But my time is finally near

    And I can feel the change in the wind right now
    Nothing's in my way
    And they're not gonna hold me down no more
    No they're not gonna hold me down

    'Cause I've got faith of the heart
    I'm going where my heart will take me
    I've got faith to believe
    I can do anything
    I've got strength of the soul
    And no one's gonna bend or break me
    I can reach any star
    I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the heart

    It's been a long night
    Trying to find my way
    Been through the darkness
    Now I've finally had my day

    And I will see my dream come alive at last
    I will touch the sky
    And they're not gonna hold me down no more
    No they're not gonna change my mind

    'Cause I've got faith of the heart
    I'm going where my heart will take me
    I've got faith to believe
    I can do anything
    I've got strength of the soul
    And no one's gonna bend or break me
    I can reach any star
    I've got faith, faith of the heart

    I've known the wind so cold
    I've seen the darkest days
    But now the winds I feel
    Are only winds of change
    I've been through the fire
    I've been through the rain
    But I'll be flying, oh yeah

    'Cause I've got faith of the heart
    I'm going where my heart will take me
    I've got faith to believe
    I can do anything
    I've got strength of the soul
    And no one's gonna bend or break me
    I can reach any star
    I've got faith, I've got faith, faith of the heart

  5. "Therefore, a miner who doesn't know the Code should be considered in violation of the Code."

    Another important message for all carebears out there!

  6. He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
    He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
    He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
    He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
    He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
    He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
    He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

    1. He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
      He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
      For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
      For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
      For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
      For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
      For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
      For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
      For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
      For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
      For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
      He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
      He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
      He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
      He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
      He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

      From the Declaration of Independence, an important message for all the code-aspirants out there

    3. And even now, with their giant-effort walls of text, the carebear seeks to emulate New Order Agents' way of speaking, by appropriating our slogans, attempting to use against us.

      Nay, the bot-aspirant will never manage to make "Code-aspirant" a thing.
      But we will enjoy his futile effort.
