Kills of the Week

Are the carebears learning? Some days it feels like it's one step forward, two steps back with these guys. Just when you think they're taking their obligations under the Code to heart, they go AFK with a cargo bay full of expensive stuff. Or they autopilot with a bunch of expensive implants. Or they simply behave in a bot-aspirant manner.

The truth is, progress rarely takes place in a straight line. We know that the carebears will have their ups and downs. It's our responsibility to shoot the carebears so that they can be hurried along to the next "up" phase. How about some fine examples of this theory in action, from the week of April 12th @ 00:00 EVEtime through April 18th @ 23:59 EVEtime?



Qumi Sotken got all excited about the new Quafe Edition blueprints, especially a Dominix one. He got so wrapped up in his new purchases that he completely forgot about the Code--as evidenced by his anti-tanked Badger. Agent Tisiphone Dira didn't forget, though. And she wouldn't let Qumi forget, either.


With a loss estimated at over 2 billion isk, Qumi learned a lesson he'll always remember.



Agent Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri's bumper alt was making the acquaintance of freighter pilot Effei Gloom. Effei belonged to the inauspiciously named Lazy T2 Holdings corp. This got Salah suspicious. He knew to trust his instincts, so he rallied a New Order fleet to destroy the freighter and see what was inside. Agents Braggs Seyllin, Emotion Sasen, JohnCrichton, Jason Kusion, Sasha Cohenberg, Fabulous Andy, Randy McSoggybotto, Ricki Lake Show, BoneyTooth Thompkins, dude there's my-pod, Lament von Gankenheim, Eure Dincigkeit, Melon Arbalabator, Vez Royal, Jin Blam, Candy Indevan, John Coindoin, and Jeremy Bustarhymes made the freighter go boom.


In addition to countless other BPOs, our heroes recovered a genuine T2 BPO. The treasure managed to survive being passed down all the way from the CCP t20 era. Now it is in the New Order's capable hands. Needless to say, Effei Gloom was extra gloomy that day. As far as freighter kills go, they don't get much more expensive than this.



godtallon boomer's Orthrus was destroyed by a trio of Catalysts flown by Agents Brutal Anna, Carebears' Nightmare, and Rick Therapist. You might assume that they happened to gank a random autopiloter on a gate. The full story is much more intriguing:


In fact, ol' godtallon boomer was making a nuisance of himself, mining illegally in Goram.


For a carebear, there is no such thing as "hunting mode", or a famous nullsec alt, or a deadly pirate alt. Carebears only have one setting: Bot-aspirancy mode. That's why our Agents have no trouble killing them--regardless of whether they fly ships that can shoot back or not.



Jaraxxus was wandering through highsec in a 1.6 billion isk faction battleship. In addition to the faction battleship, Jaraxxus enjoyed faction warfare. Or did he? Actually, he was a carebear who longed for the safety and serenity of highsec. He went to highsec for a break from faction warfare. Agent Nicolas Dupre, too, enjoyed spending time in highsec. He wasn't as keen on the whole "taking a break from faction warfare" bit, though. Nicolas found Jaraxxus' commitment to the Code lacking, so he killed him. There's much more to this story, but that will need to wait for another day.



Untroubled by losing a 4.6 billion isk freighter, Bruno Ensiive remained AFK long enough to lose a 3.3 billion isk pod to Agent Aaaarrgg.


Impressively, Bruno managed to run up his 3.3 billion isk pod loss while fitting hardwirings alone--no learning implants were equipped. Bruno, it seems, prefers to do his learning the hard way.

  1. If it is indeed one step forward two steps back, then you will never change us.

    1. Ah, but changing you are. If only you could see the infinite icebelts of yesteryear packed with afk mackinaws and the hulks that haunted every single belt, you would appreciate how very far we have come. We still have a fight ahead of us--this much is certain--but we are well on our way to 100% compliance.

    5. One thing i have learned over the years is there is one good use of code., well this website, code itself is useless.
      Anyone with common sense can simply look at posts like this one, write down the names of bumper and ganker alts, as well as their mains, and then simply add all those names to their notify list. It will give a nice little red icon when your in system with one of those degenerates, which makes it easier to avoid them. Its never worth the time to engage (combat, local chat, and private chat) those lowlifes that call themselves code, much better to simply avoid and ignore them. Been doing that for years, and i got quite the list and almost always know when one of those criminals is in system with me, never been shot at or bumped. Remove yourself as target, you remove them fun and they go away, or at least somewhere else.

    6. Observe this miner. It advocates watchlisting CODE. Agents, and ignoring them every time they appear to enforce the Code, so as to avoid us and not engage us, and then seeks us out, comes here to Minerbumping.com, and engages us by writing a lengthy diatribe about how it and everyone else could kill CODE. by denying us content. While it is here generating content for us.

      Carebears. Practicing the things they preach. *rolls eyes*

  2. It's not the destination, but the journey that is important. One must try if the cause is worth fighting for.

    1. And just as our Saviour is living and can talk to us, it is not only a cause worth fighting for; it is a cause that can literally be achieved.

      Your anger oozes through the keyboard for all to see. If this did not matter to you, I doubt you would take the time to comment, which I'm sure you do every day. So I'm calling BS on your statement.

    6. call what you like it's true. i'm just here to remind you how none of it amounts to anything. put it on your next cv see if it helps you get a job lol

      Well I have a job. A good one, so I really don't need to do that, what ever "that" is.. not sure what I could possibly put on my cv, but I will assume that for you EVE=RL and that's where your going with this. Kind of stupid if you ask me. This is a game and I treat it as such. I certainly don't take it or you as seriously as you seem too. Do you have a job? How's that working out for you?

    8. It is a well known fact that with "New Order Agent" in your job history that you can get any job that you apply for in real life without question. Every employer knows that Agents of the New Order are trustworthy and skillful beyond measure.

  4. Since I don't distinguish between RL and in-game let me tell you all I am a rich lawyer/troll, I'm bored, and i'm totally socially isolated due to the fact that I suck at playing this game.

  5. Why did you write "I am" three different ways? First as two words, then as a contraction with the I capitalized, and then as a contraction with the I lower case?

    Veers? I think not.

    2/10, idiot.
