Kills of the Week

A little econ quiz to start off the week, dear reader. Which makes more sense: Allowing one of the biggest highsec business enterprises to fail, or buying a few mining permits at 10 million isk a piece? The answer may not be as simple as you think.


The New Order has eyes and ears everywhere. Internal communications intercepted by our Agents reveal that Push Industries, the second-largest hauling company after Red Frog Freight, has been bankrupted by the freighter ganking fleets. They must have seen this coming for a long time now, but they wouldn't spare any money for permits. Nor have they been distributing copies of the Code to their pilots. No, better to financially disintegrate than acknowledge the supremacy of the New Order.

Some highsec dwellers are in denial, I'd say. Let's examine a few other cases of denial from the week of August 16th 00:00 EVEtime through August 22nd @ 23:59 EVEtime.



What's sillier than a Bowhead worth 16.3 billion isk? One whose fittings alone cost over 3.3 billion. Sanjara seemed to believe in the power of isk-tanking. Sorry, but no. He was rightly executed by Agents Kusotarre, Strom Cohenberg, JerryRin AT2016 Commentator, Ryvarant, Straight Up Dominated, The Occidental, 412nv Yaken, loyalanon, Fightsquad, ThatOleSerpent, OogaBooga WhereDa FreighterAt, Capt Starfox, suiseisiki aran, Fabulous Andy, holdmybeer, unknown boat, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, Cheeky Nando, Kirra Tarren, Ricki Lake Show, Dagny Whitemane, Burt Plug, rackarns, Sophia Soprano, Tyber-zan Vex-ar, Austrene Jakuard, and Aide Royale.


Not every killboard commenter saw the justice, though. You'd think people who browse killboards would be pro-kill! Side note: Amusingly, the Bowhead was ganked in Kamio, the second system ever to be liberated by the New Order.



Timcanpy Yvormes lost a 10.2 billion isk freighter for his crimes. The sentence was carried out by Agents Aaaarrgg, Lament von Gankenheim, loyalanon, Bob Painter, Pod-Goo RepoWoman, Sasha Cohenberg, kaz89, OogaBooga WhereDa FreighterAt, holdmybeer, Yabba Dabba Do, Straight Up Dominated, TedNougat TedNougat, JerryRin AT2016 Commentator, Strom Cohenberg, Antiganks Won'tsaveyo, Cory Oskold, Inspector Implant, and... Timcanpy Meza?


Timcanpy reported his loss in the hauler channel. He admitted that he'd assumed having a web alt would guarantee his safety. I appreciate the fact that he at least put in a little bit of effort by bringing a webber along, but webifier does not equal mining permit.


Who says the New Order doesn't shoot ships that can shoot back? Our Agents destroyed hundreds of hostile combat vessels in this one gank alone. And before you rebels and skeptics say, "But they weren't given a fair chance! They weren't piloted!"...



From earlier this year, Ol Ormand shows us what a carebear can do with a combat ship. Before you lose your lunch, reader, rest easy: Agent Snigie Audanie offered Ol Ormand a demonstration in the proper use of a Catalyst.



Kirell stuffed 1.8 billion isk of cargo into a flimsy little tech I industrial ship. Feeling she had plenty of tank to spare, the carebear added eight separate anti-tank modules and rigs. By this point, her Wreathe had about as many hitpoints as a wet paper bag. The good news is, she was too smart to autopilot in this ship. Phew! The bad news is, she went AFK on a stargate instead. The 1.8 billion isk octuple-anti-tanked Wreathe silently awaited the inevitable--Agent Eva Mavas.



There are a lot of ways to throw away 4 billion isk, but Alexey Hemanseh opted for the classic "autopilot a shuttle through Niarja" strategy. Agent Aaaarrgg was on duty at the time. Alexey's implants weren't of the mining variety. If you examine the killmail, you can see Alexey fancied himself some sort of gunslinger. But we know better. He was a bot-aspirant.

BONUS!

How do our Agents stay in such fine fighting shape? Practice!


To stay sharp, New Order Agents routinely engage in training exercises. Sometimes the training takes place in lowsec, where I'm told a bunch of dangerous pirates lurk--along with rogue elements of powerful nullsec alliances. Naturally, they make for good target practice.


Forgot 2Wipe, a dreadnought pilot for CVA, was attacking a control tower in lowsec. Our Agents saw this as a good opportunity to practice dealing with highsec miners. After the dreadnought failed to purchase a mining permit, our Agents followed their training. loyalanon, Globby, Turbolaserwolf, Krominal, Lament von Gankenheim, PV Rock, Keraina Talie-Kuo, Eva Mavas, Zaenis Desef, Sterling Cohenberg, Sherman Cohenberg, Stein Cohenberg, Silvester Cohenberg, Stanley Cohenberg, Nitetime Video, Wolf Soprano, Ben Li, and Berry Nice carried out the gank with style and grace.


After the live-fire exercise was concluded, the FC, Agent loyalanon accepted a convo invite from the dreadnought pilot's alt. Although this was only a simulation, loyalanon continued to follow his training to the letter.


Highsec won't save itself, you know. It takes hard work and dedication.

  11. Pushx is still around, they just stopped their insurance program. That's all. Besides, that Revelation kill I found interesting. Loyalamoron is in error. Jimmy the anal dwelling monkey 315 claims that he rules highsec. So what Lolalanon doing demanding a permit from a capital ship in lowsec where you don't need a permit.

    1. So, Butthurt Miner, I will remind you, that paying respect and allegiance to James 315 any place is a good thing to do, at all times, and using a solo capital in lowsec is obviously a dumb idea. Even to someone as smart as you are.

      Please tell me what happens to a shipping service when it can no longer afford to pay out insurance rembursements to its pilots who foolishly risk their freighters by flouting the Law of Highsec, which has clearly been the law for three years. Hold on, I'll answer that one for you. They fail. That's what happens. Which is another example of The Code working, and winning.

      One bankrupt non-compliant freighter service at a time.

    2. Well, maybe what you say would have more meaning if you actually undocked. Besides, I piss on James 315 and his code every day. I will not buy a mining permit, so come here and get under my desk, you pillow biting code bot monkey faggot.

      Delete
  12. That capital kill is more proof of new order lies, since when are permits required in LowSec???...Are you fools going to require them in Nullsec too now???...this just proves you are a bunch of terrorists out to create anarchy...

    1. I would love to see them out in nullsec. Then we really get to see how long that they will last before they come running back to highsec like the cowards they are.

    2. You keep talking about nullsec like it is something special. Null PVP is for scrubs and plebs. Everyone knows that hisec PVP is for the truly elite.
