Led by fleet commander loyalanon, New Order forces launched a series of daring raids against bot-aspirant freighters in Uedama this week. It was a smashing victory for the Code. The carebears were taken completely by surprise. They never anticipated that something like this might happen in Uedama--they couldn't believe it.
During the week, CODEdot corp The Conference Elite managed to reach the #3 position on zKillboard's ranking of player corps.
At the same time, Agent holdmybeer (also of The Conference Elite) was ranked the #1 PvP'er in all EVE.
Everyone was thrilled to see such imaginative content created in highsec. A good time was had by all. Seen here in a bumping Machariel, Agent Jaxi Wreckful's alt took a selfie in front of the wreck of a freighter he helped kill.
Well, maybe not everyone had a good time. Some of the freighter pilots proved to be bad sports about the whole thing. More evidence that people who violate the Code have less fun in EVE.
Witnessing the spectacle in Uedama, Jake Runbridge scolded our Agents, accusing them of ruining the game for new players.
Jake Runbridge wasn't convincing in the role of "new player". His 5.3 billion isk freighter gave him away. Agents loyalanon, Mildron Klinker, Zaenis Desef, Sasha Cohenberg, Angel Pirate, Boarat Saagdiyev, Molly Klinker, Sophia Soprano, WonkySplitDemon, Turbolaserwolf, Sypheres, Pac, and watercup book gave him the new player experience. Nearly half an hour later, Jake returned to his keyboard and sent the complaint EVEmail you just read.
loyalanon > Kill: WiIdfir3 (Providence)Our Agents are filled with generosity. Though loyalanon's fleet captured an unlicensed freighter by bumping it, they were willing to let him go with a 315 million isk warning, since he was at least at his keyboard. He wouldn't pay.
loyalanon > 315mil you will die
Valheru Plague > yeah, that all had extenders, not bulkheads, and again, my cargo not worth that much.
loyalanon > 315mil is 1/20th of your cargo value
loyalanon > like i said
loyalanon > pay up or you will die
Valheru Plague > i'd rather not
loyalanon > 315mil
Valheru Plague > running bulkheads not extenders, so i give good odds
...Never tell loyalanon the odds.
Valheru Plague rolled the dice. He lost. As they say in Vegas, the CODE always wins. Agents John E Normus, Mildron Klinker, Angel Pirate, loyalanon, Lament von Gankenheim, Sasha Cohenberg, Aaaarrgg, Noll Kion, Pod-Goo RepoWoman, Globby, Sophia Soprano, WonkySplitDemon, Martyr Oira, Lisa Tears, and Molly Klinker obliterated Valheru's freighter. Over 3 billion isk worth of cargo was recovered. The money was used to fund additional bets. Let it ride.
Uedama was a lively place this week, but our Agents were everywhere.
Nikoshi > can i join as protectionIf a system has 0.9 security, it's the miner equivalent of a slum. Yet there were miners running a "fleet" there. Can you imagine anything more boring than mining and providing security for miners in a 0.9 system?
Mattes Zimmermann > i dont think i will need that in high sec^^ but sure
Mattes Zimmermann > just klick the fleet advert
Mattes Zimmermann > i havent done this fleet advert many times so i dont know if i am doin something wrong
Nikoshi > not working, please invite
Guyata Gaterau > shoo shooLuckily, an Agent of the New Order arrived to spice things up.
Guyata Gaterau > stop bumping me
Guyata Gaterau > 2 battleships against 1 mining barge^^
Orions Lord > gf
Nikoshi > i was protecting you man
Guyata Gaterau > from what? do you realy think he attacks an Mining Barge with a Rattlesnake?
Guyata Gaterau > High sec is not the place to fight^^
Nikoshi > well thx for your compliments that i tryed to protect you (NOT), kost me only 1.5 bill. ungratefull shit
Nikoshi had a pimped-out Machariel, but he didn't know what to use it for. He should've been helping to bump freighters, but he used it to guard illegal miners in highsec. Agent Orions Lord engaged the fiend and reminded him that the New Order is filled with elite PvP'ers. We love shooting ships that shoot back.
Guyata Gaterau > i know the CODEThe whole "guard miners in a 0.9 system" thing turned out not to be very rewarding. Imagine that!
Guyata Gaterau > and i despite high sec gankers
Guyata Gaterau > i have no idea what thats for
Nikoshi > becauce you are so stupid that 7you can not understand that i lost 1.5 bil ship in a efford to protect you and you act like "its nothing"
Guyata Gaterau > is a machariel realy that expensive??? i though battleships are around 200 million
Nikoshi > i,m pissed. can handel ship lose, was nice fight. my mistake: did not have jump loaded
Orions Lord > i'm truly sorry it had to come to this
Captain Quantox had money to burn. Agent Aaaarrgg helped him burn it.
4.2 billion isk of implants, gone in a single shot. Aaaarrgg told me that after he logged in, at the very first stargate he warped to, he saw Captain Quantox's shuttle. Within about 30 seconds of logging in, our Agent personally inflicted 4.2 billion isk of damage. Highsec can be an exciting place.
