The highsec trade routes took another shellacking during the week of March 13th @ 00:00 EVEtime through March 19th @ 23:59 EVEtime. Despite CCP's latest attempt to nerf freighter ganking--this time with an across-the-board hull EHP increase--the carebears only perished in greater numbers. The first Ark ganked since the patch fell in Uedama, along with many others. Click here for more photos of New Order victories taken by Agent Fiddly Pop.
Thor Drako's fail-fit (is the term "fail-fit" redundant in Kills of the Week posts now?) Raven died in the Aunia system. The location, at the system's star, hints at the cause: Agent Big Gradner Painhaus killed it with an Enyo after getting flagged for killing the Raven pilot's MTU.
Thor didn't learn his lesson about the Code always winning--always.
Fenris zuAsgard's Iteron Mark V wasn't a "ship that can't shoot back" by any stretch of the imagination. It was a battle Iteron, ready for combat. But even the deadliest of industrial ships is no match for Agents armed with the Code. Votre Dieu and Narl' Amhar got a pair of Ruptures and blapped it in a 0.9 system.
Ioneres, too, fell victim to Agents Vontre Dieu and Narl' Amhar, who seem determined to bring high-alpha Minmatar ships back to the forefront of ganking. The stabbed-up Tayra struck them as mighty suspicious, so they opened fire. It was a 1.0 system and the Tayra's fit wasn't tackle-friendly, but there was no need to worry about follow-up salvos on such a flimsy target.
Three more injectors worth of skillpoints removed from the game.
Ivanca Trump was stumped by Agent Votre Dieu, this time ganking solo with a Tornado. Ivanca needed a lot of cargo space, but wasn't so concerned about hitpoints. What was she up to?
Failed hauler Ivanca lost a bundle of PLEX--almost enough to cover her EVE subscription until Election Day. Sad!
can i plz ave my plex back i just bought itIvanca demanded that Votre Dieu return all of the PLEX. What did she offer in return? Nothing. What a joke! Our Agents aren't stupid. They know how to negotiate a deal, let me tell you. They know how to make really, really good deals.

To: Votre Dieu,
please i just spent 100 bucks on that
Re: can i plz ave my plex back i just bought itListen, if anyone sees another one of these Tayra pilots breaking the Code, just gank 'em for me, okay? I'll reimburse you from the New Order Treasury. Don't worry about it, I'll reimburse you.

BUNTA autopiloted a capacitor-tanked... Sigh. A capacitor-tanked, shield-boosting frigate. He made an easy target for Agent Aaaarrgg, whose Thrashers faithfully cleanse highsec of the remaining low-EHP autopiloters.
Naturally, the frigate--which had only 1,012 hitpoints--was stuffed full of 12 billion isk in PLEX. Does the theme park crowd still advocate isk tanking?
Those hearts and minds, though.
Zanith Solette had a ton of cargo that he absolutely had to move through Niarja. Given how much isk was at stake, he made sure to boost his freighter's agility, which ever-so-slightly shortened the amount of time it took to autopilot across his route. Priorities, eh? A fleet of gankers had a different priority: The Code.
Agents Zopiclone, Winnie Po0h, Ryvarant, Assassn Gallic, Chocolate Mooses, Galaxy Pig, Karmafleet Is Recruiting, Shazna Solta, GR13Fy, Jake Kusion, Lawrence Lawton, Jason Kusion, loyalanon, Justin Kusion, Fiddly Pop, Empire Raider, Jayden Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Solar Gleam, Joel Kusion, Pure Whyte, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Brudal Aletheias, and Another ShadeOf Whyte assembled and brought justice to highsec once again.
That's right, the entire shipment consisted of 15 PLEX. That's what he needed the freighter for. A lot of PLEX and Skill Injectors were confiscated and destroyed this week. I think some of these carebears need to study up on the Code before they undock again.
