This past week was the final week of 2016. Needless to say, 2016 belonged entirely to the Code. There was some big war in nullsec at one point, but then people got tired of it. People never get tired of the Code. In fact, EVE players' enthusiasm for the Code only grew during the year. Impressive! Let's see how the Code manifested itself during the week of December 25th @ 00:00 EVEtime through December 31st @ 23:59 EVEtime.
Aegikz Elodin must've known about the existence of Ventures, but he fit a regular frigate with mining equipment anyway. Agent Carebears' Nightmare sincerely hoped that Aegikz owned a mining permit. But he didn't, so he lost his ship.
Among some carebears, a spare PLEX in the cargo counts as "mining equipment".
Morfeyka had no qualms about bringing her 16 billion isk Anshar into highsec, and she saw no need to purchase a 10 million isk mining permit. Any time a jump freighter is in danger of being ganked, it can simply activate its jump drive and get to safety. Assuming the pilot isn't AFK, that is. Morfeyka basically confessed her guilt by allowing herself to be destroyed by Agents Darnoth, Mark Ormerant, Logical Fallacy, Ricki Lake Show, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, Liz Cadelanne, Unfit ForDoody, Emergent Gameplay, Fabulous Andy, Perlo Tissant, Urban Worrier, Gea Stormbound, Morrigan Laima, dAbOsSlAdY77, Alexis Grixis, Leaping Lizards, Sigmund Jund, Aedos Lucana, AndyLulz, Captain Cortar, Jet Set Milly, Whitney Wooberg, Grant Bant, Origo Lim, Lady Ati, Jasper Esper, Elon Mueller, Kon Xanithex, and bi mistuff.
lt cwalu went shopping one day and bought a Hulk. This tempted her into doing all sorts of bad things later on. (I would recommend not buying Hulks.) Agents Votre Dieu and Narl' Amhar caught lt cwalu while she was descending her downward spiral, and they helped her out.
Her situation had gotten serious: She was carrying half a billion isk in mining drones. Mining drones!
Tiernan Talvanen might've felt guilty about the eight anti-tank modules on his ship. Who wouldn't feel a little uneasy using a hauler with so few hitpoints? But Tiernan was confident that his capacitor tank would even things out. Wrong. Only a Code enforcement action would restore the balance. Agent V-ktor Dolus carried out the much-needed gank.
Will Thacker's Covetor was so fail-fit that zKillboard refused to include the Covetor image. Truly this was a ship unworthy of having its picture taken. Known for his discretion, Agent Snigie Audanie quickly and quietly removed the ship from highsec. Now no one will ever need to see it again.
After the Kusion family helped destroy Endoff's 1.7 billion isk Mastadon, Agent KoHfeTHbIu TpoLLb delivered the killing blow on his ghastly 7.2 billion isk pod. I have a feeling this is a Christmas Endoff won't soon forget.
What's with all these decadent pods lately? Have the carebears learned nothing? I suppose another year of ganks is appropriate. Highsec dwellers, get ready for 2017. The New Order has lots of fun in store for you.
