I am pleased to report the conclusion of another successful Venture-killing contest! The host of the contest, Agent CODE Agent AC, has tallied up the results from the exciting event this February. As you'll recall, the objective for each contestant was to kill as many unique highsec Venture pilots as possible. Although Ventures have few hitpoints, this contest is actually quite a challenge: A committed Venture-ganker will often run into the same Venture pilot repeatedly. Hunting down unique pilots takes skill, creativity, luck, and persistence.
Lots of gankers and aspiring gankers got in on the action. There were, of course, the usual moans and complaints from the carebear crowd, who believe the contest is about ganking newbies and driving them away from the game. This is nonsense, as CCP Rise has conclusively proven.
But enough background info. You want to hear who won, don't you?
The winner has been announced by CODE Agent AC on the official EVE-O forum thread for the contest. And the winner, with over 175 unique Venture pilots destroyed is...

A heartfelt congratulations to EveIs ABadGame PleaseQuit. What an effort! A special thanks also goes out to the rest of the contestants, and CODE Agent AC, for showing everyone how much fun highsec can be--when we all work together in accordance with the Code.
