How does someone wind up being featured as a gank recipient on a Kills of the Week post? They tend to fall into two different categories. In the first category you find your habitual Code violators, carebearists, theme parkers, bots, bot-aspirants, Goofuses, Anti-Gankers, decadent isk-grinders, anti-Code rebels, and the like. Nasty group of people. The second category is empty. Actually, you can think of it as one category, if you prefer. Without further ado, from the week of September 4th @ 00:00 EVEtime through September 10th @ 23:59 EVEtime:
Queen Zenobia Augusta pretended to be a newbie by mining in a 0.9 security system. The 1.7 billion isk Hulk she was flying gave her away, though. Impressively, her Hulk was worth that much despite not equipping any ORE Strip Miners; she used 'Aoede' Mining Laser Upgrades instead. Obviously those modules are illegal, so she was terminated by Agents Molly Klinker, KoHfeTHbIu TpoLLb, Mosquito Bites, Winnie Po0h, Mildron Klinker, and Lichelle Marie.
...And then she lost her 2.4 billion isk pod, which predictably contained a Michi's Excavation Augmentor.
Dannis Aideron went the traditional route, blinging up his Mackinaw to 1.7 billion isk with a pair of ORE Ice Harvesters. Agents KoHfeTHbIu TpoLLb, Fiddly Pop, and Winnie Po0h dispatched the fiend with great haste. Once again, a 2.4 billion isk pod was found inside. Michi strikes again! Let's hope this was only a coincidence, but our intrepid Agents also discovered a 1.1 billion isk Mackinaw mining in a 1.0 security system this week, so who knows.
Atem RaHotep was flying an 8.3 billion isk jump freighter. She made a terrible mistake by jumping into Uedama. When requested to present her mining permit, she failed to respond. Thus, the pilot forfeited her Rhea. Agents Winnie Po0h, Fiddly Pop, Nitetime Video, Jason Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Milkmypigeon, Chapo Muerte, uninstall this game3, uninstall this game4, uninstall this game2, uninstall this game1, uninstall this game5, uninstall this game6, Allise Soprano, and KoHfeTHbIu TpoLLb eviscerated her.
The jump freighter had plenty of fuel, but she chose not to jump away. Maybe she didn't perceive our heroes as a threat? Now she knows better--you'll never find a more skilled group of elite PvP'ers.
Slevin Kelev Ra had a freighter worth 18.1 billion isk. Contrary to what you hear in the Anti-Ganking channel, it's possible to tank a freighter. Also, New Order permits are widely available at very good prices. For some reason, Slevin didn't avail himself of his opportunities to defend his freighter, and chose instead to jump into a gank fleet consisting of Agents Darnoth, Unwarranted Assumption, Logical Fallacy, Miner Compliance Officer, Yvain Bluewater, big brutor five, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, Prixm Wind, James Poddington, Hayley, Nin Rin, Lawrence Lawton, Bratok Srayona, Eugenie Brazier, Austrene Jakuard, Logical Fatality, Ayatola Whoami, big brutor three, Skiff Poddington, Yojiro, big brutor four, Hulk Poddington, and Mack Poddington. Oops!
Melingus purchased a faction battleship and fitted it out with some of the blingiest modules isk can buy. In other words, she was flying a ship that can't shoot back. She barreled her way into Uedama, apparently expecting no resistance. Fat chance! She was met on the field of battle by Agents Justin Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Ermingard Maori, Erminlinda Maori, Adelina Maori, Gertrud Maori, Amelia Maori, Avila Maori, Grimhilt Maori, Gerlind Maori, Adela Maori, Joel Kusion, Theudelinda Maori, Jake Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jason Kusion, and lola nakautXaiz. Carebears bring Nightmares, but the Code brings sweet dreams to us all.
Bad news for Flynxi Alar: She suffered the Podkill of the Week. Even worse news: We've already seen a pair of 2.4 billion isk pods. Yes, Agent La Nina Blanca earned her keep when she tackled Flynxi's 4.6 billion isk monster and brought it down.
Flynxi was AFK and autopiloting in a naked pod at the time. Uedama isn't your backyard, Flynxi. Show some respect.
