When the Code was promulgated three years ago, it put highsec on notice: The time for bot-aspirant debauchery is over. School is in session. Did the carebears make the grade this week--or did they flunk Code 101? Let's review what the beneficiaries of compulsory education learned during the week of June 28th @ 00:00 EVEtime through July 4th @ 23:59 EVEtime.
Oops. Ham Hamilion got off to a rough start. Maybe he assumed that since the New Order was covering the Uedama pipe a lot lately, that the Niarja pipe was safe. Folks, if it's in highsec, the New Order has it covered. Ham lost 33.4 billion isk. Perhaps he was a new player and simply couldn't afford his permit? Agents JerryRin AT2016 Commentator, OogaBooga WhereDa FreighterAt, loyalanon, Sterling Cohenberg, Strom Cohenberg, Concerned Miner, Stanley Cohenberg, Silvester Cohenberg, Sasha Cohenberg, Globby, Stein Cohenberg, Straight Up Dominated, Sherman Cohenberg, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, and Sin Stash put an end to Ham Hamilion.
I've noticed that the zKillboard comment community doesn't suffer from as much pro-carebear bias as some other EVE groups.
...There are always a few remedial students who have trouble grasping the lesson.
There are many things wrong with Wolverine Platinum's jump freighter, but one thing that's very right: It's dead. I'd like to draw your attention to the "other" category on the killmail, which is where jump freighter fuel is stored. Wolverine could have activated his jump drive to escape at any time, but failed to do so. Remember that one for later. In any case, Wolverine was Too Cool for Keyboard and was paid a visit by loyalanon, the Cohenberg family, and their friends: Agents Boarat Saagdiyev, OogaBooga WhereDa FreighterAt, Jason Kusion, loyalanon, Salander Ronuken, ThatOleSerpent, jipjipjip beepbop, JerryRin AT2016 Commentator, Sasha Cohenberg, Sophia Soprano, Straight Up Dominated, Sherman Cohenberg, Stein Cohenberg, WonkySplitDemon, Nick Actilete, Silvester Cohenberg, Sterling Cohenberg, Stanley Cohenberg, Staren Instapase, Red Pen Offender, and pastywhitenerd.
This one hurts. HorntoadXOX was spotted in a pimped-out Hulk. You might assume he was busy mining in an ice anomaly, maxing out his isk/hour ratio. In fact, he was simply parked right outside of a station. This miner couldn't be bothered to dock up! Agents Carebears' Nightmare, Brutal Anna, Rick Therapist, and Marina Gankalot braved the station's sentry guns and took HorntoadXOX down. Courage under fire.
Jamie Zateki brought an expensive battleship into Uedama one day. Our Agents were thrilled, since they love to shoot ships that can shoot back. They were so excited that they destroyed Jamie before he got the chance to return fire, though. Mark down a PvP victory for Agents Sasha Cohenberg, Chocolate Mooses, OogaBooga WhereDa FreighterAt, Salander Ronuken, Karmafleet Is Recruiting, Zane Arnolles, loyalanon, JerryRin AT2016 Commentator, Silvester Cohenberg, Sterling Cohenberg, Stanley Cohenberg, Boarat Saagdiyev, Straight Up Dominated, Lisa Tears, Oda Nobunaga, Stein Cohenberg, Cinomed Fostergut, and ThatOleSerpent.
Shadiss didn't give two hoots about the Code, and it showed. She triple-anti-tanked her jump freighter and dropped into Uedama for a bit. Interestingly, though she was carrying billions of isk in ships, she didn't have a single unit of fuel for her jump drive. It's as though she felt jump drives are only important outside of highsec--as if highsec is 100% safe, and jump drives are not needed. This is a violation of the Code. If you'd take jump fuel with you outside of highsec, you need it in New Order territory. Agent loyalanon, Sophia Soprano, Jason Kusion, Rick Therapist, Josh Tsutola, reaper Shardani, Brutal Anna, unknown boat, Ryvarant, Carebears' Nightmare, karma balancer, Red Pen Offender, and unknown problem soon made Shadiss wish she had some fuel. And a permit.
SteveTheWraith only had shattered crystals once he ran into Agent PV Rock. Nearly 5 billion more isk disappeared into Sivala, the graveyard of implants. I've got some good news: SteveTheWraith returned about an hour later and was podded by PV Rock once again. That time, his pod was empty. Progress.
