Kills of the Week

Though carebears prefer to remain silent and AFK, when they do speak to each other, it's usually to share nonsense and misinformation. Some see little harm in their idle gossip, but make no mistake: Carebear rumors can be deadly. For example, a rumor recently went around that highsec is safe for autopiloting freighters again.


Whoops! During the week of April 17th @ 00:00 EVEtime through April 23rd @ 23:59 EVEtime, no fewer than 32 freighters and 6 jump freighters were destroyed by Agents of the New Order in CODE. and The Conference Elite (on holiday from the alliance while its CEO issue is sorted out).


Another rumor claimed that the war against the Imperium in nullsec has somehow resulted in less ganking. Quite the contrary. In fact, New Order Agents have been joined in freighter ganking by both of the warring factions. Pictured here, kills with Goonswarm Federation gankers and Pandemic Legion gankers coexist comfortably together on the killboard.



But wait, there's more! Notice the location of Boomer87's dead freighter. Not only was it attacked in a 0.9 security system--it was ganked right on the Jita 4-4 undock!


Carebears have even fewer places to hide, thanks to the New Order's latest achievements in multiboxing stealth bomber ganks. Now multiple multiboxers are working together. Agents Joel Kusion, Efrosyni Dora, Georgia Agape, Jeremiah Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Evdokia Sofia, Joseph Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Kiki Sotiria, Turkey Baster, Konstantina Demi, Jackson Kusion, Natasa Melpomeni, Melina Timothea, Kyveli Aglaia, and AutoPuppet Tong made quite a splash in front of EVE's most popular station.



Meanwhile, Dynamicy's freighter with special cargo was obliterated by Agents Assassn Gallic, Justin Kusion, Logical Fallacy, borodimer antipas, Jake Kusion, Turkey Baster, Hayley, Prixm Wind, Yvain Bluewater, Jackson Kusion, Nin Rin, Unwarranted Assumption, Bob Painter, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Logical Fatality, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Miner compliance Officer, Inspector Implant, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, Vanestra Maken, and Dante Solthesis...


Svipuls are generally considered to be overpowered. Yet even a fleet of hundreds of Svipuls are powerless in the face of the Code.



Rambo II has been a member of the Central Galactic Mining and Production Coalition for a long time. In fact, he has been in that corp for ten full years. Agents Capt Starfox and John E Normus surprised him on his 10-year anniversary with a nice gank. Proving that an old dog can learn new tricks, Rambo's Mackinaw made use of the popular new fit: A capacitor tank.



Neeyah Shihari's shuttle was worth 1.5 billion isk. Agent Haleuth popped it easily. Why was it so expensive? PLEX, Skill Injectors, Aurum...


Points to those who guessed Skill Injectors. It also contained a Skill Extractor. Quite dangerous--Neeyah clearly has little skill to spare.



Uedama is where blingy ships go to die. skynono's Proteus was worth over 32 billion isk, but she carelessly went AFK and autopiloted through the system. Uedama was busy that day. The Proteus was ambushed by a large gank fleet: Agents Yvain Bluewater, Envy the Jealous, Bratok Srayona, Gaara's sniper, Dark Sn1p3r, Angel Logisticus, Ebony Sniper, Hayley, Nin Rin, Michael the Archangel, Jason Kusion, Pride the Arrogant, Gilgamesh the King, Jeanne D' Arc, Jayson Kusion, Seeker of Vengeance, BAE B BLUE, Sloth the Indolent, Gluttony the Voracious, Gilles de Rais, Hassan- i Sabbah, Wrath the Furious, Jake Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Greed the Avaricious, Vlad III Tepes, Tamamo no Mae, Lust the Lascivious, Siegfried Dragon-Blooded Knight, Morrigan Laima, Joshua Kusion, Diarmuid O' Duibhne, Miner Compliance Officer, Prixm Wind, Jeremiah Kusion, marcusluv stradius, Jackson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Joel Kusion, Logical Fallacy, BAE B PEW, Logical Fatality, Jayden Kusion, Unwarranted Assumption, Gerovit, Joseph Kusion, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, and Gea Stormbound.


Much of the killmail value consisted of 26 PLEX. You know, even at the rate of CCP's best-priced offer, that's about $450 USD. You wouldn't go blindly into a dark alley carrying that, so why autopilot into Uedama with it?



skynono's defeat was complete when her pod was popped by Agent marcusluv stradius. It was worth 3.2 billion isk. zKillboard's graphic didn't display the hardwirings for some reason, but they're listed in the killmail:


As you might expect, there were a lot of xx6 implants. In all, skynono lost over 35.6 billion isk. I don't know how much she had left after that, but hopefully it was at least 10 million isk.

    2. According to the Mother Abbess,

      Whenever the Lord closes a door he always opens a window....

      Or was it the other way around?

      Or neither..

      Anyway loyalanon, you'll already have yanked the doors off their hinges and shattered all the windows; you'll dart about like soap on the bathroom floor.

      That's the last time I let my son roll my bloody cigarettes.

  7. What the hell was a miner 1 doing on that proteus? I think that guy was looking for a lolmail.

  8. Carebears or antigankers, please, tell me. Why would someone transport 26 PLEXes in a blingy autopiloted ship while AFK. What was the rationale behind it? Why transport PLEX at all? Did (s)he do it only to get a better price on them somewhere else? Why not use a contract? Explain it, please!
