"CODE. is dead!" cries the carebear, "Someone said so in Anti-Ganking!"
As you might imagine, any week when zKillboard declares The Conference Elite to be the #1 corporation in the entire game... Well, that's a bad week for non-compliant carebears. It also must be said that during the week of January 22nd @ 00:00 EVEtime through January 28th @ 23:59 EVEtime...
...it was a dangerous thing to be a non-compliant freighter pilot.
Let's begin with a bang. Inseno's 29 billion isk jump freighter went BANG! when it was attacked by Agents Fabulous Andy, Ricki Lake Show, BAE B PEW, The O'Reilly Factor, Hermann Fizzleblade, Unfit ForDoody, Morrigan Laima, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, Jayson Kusion, Jake Kusion, Lawrence Lawton, Justin Kusion, Jack Fizzleblade, Jayden Kusion, Elite Highsec PvP, Eugenie Brazier, Joel Kusion, Franz Fizzleblade, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Wylde Ranger, Turkey Baster, Joshua Kusion, Lich Terminus, BAE B BLUE, Zoe Worclaw, Knackered Old Goat, Jackson Kusion, Archibald Fizzleblade, Joseph Kusion, Gottfried Fizzleblade, Hagen Fizzleblade, Dano Luvoe, Lilly Kusoni, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Mitch Tortuga, and Etriza.
Yes, the jump freighter had plenty of jump fuel, but Iseno chose not to escape. The Loot Fairy withheld her blessing, but the blessing of the Code was definitely upon highsec in that moment. And as any ganker will tell you, that's far more valuable.
Protip: If you have an "ORE" module on your ship, you're doing it wrong. Inevitable Alabel used three illegal ORE Expanded Cargoholds on her ship, and she lost 22.8 billion isk in the process. Letters of congratulation may be sent to Agents Liz Cadelanne, Darnoth, Norrec Lafisques, Archibald Fizzleblade, Jack Fizzleblade, Flamboyant Surprise, Franz Fizzleblade, Skiff Poddington, Schizz Popinov, Selina Love, Hulk Poddington, Psy Nose Up, Hermann Fizzleblade, Knackered Old Goat, Git Guud Nurd, Ricki Lake Show, Fabulous Andy, Unfit ForDoody, Dragalis Miraxim, Unwarranted Assumption, Mack Poddington, Yvain Bluewater, Jayson Kusion, Logical Fallacy, The O'Reilly Factor, Heisenberg Hemah, Jake Kusion, Miner Compliance Officer, Mr Cellophane, Gottfried Fizzleblade, James Poddington, Hayley, big brutor three, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Lawrence Lawton, Prixm Wind, Logical Fatality, Nin Rin, Jayden Kusion, Hagen Fizzleblade, Joel Kusion, Turkey Baster, Justin Kusion, Masrok VII, Johnathan Kusion, Joseph Kusion, big brutor four, Sorrento 655321, Jeremiah Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Basic Black Bitch, Joshua Kusion, Sorg-frae, and Dross Kusoni.
Sakhr Al-Djinni knew better than to anti-tank his freighter. In fact, he bulkheaded up. The result was simply that more gankers got in on the kill: Agents Darnoth, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, Fabulous Andy, Logical Fallacy, Yvain Bluewater, The O'Reilly Factor, Hulk Poddington, Randy McSoggybotto, Jake Kusion, Flamboyant Surprise, Lawrence Lawton, James Poddington, Mack Poddington, Jayson Kusion, Miner Compliance Officer, Prixm Wind, Nin Rin, Justin Kusion, Mr Cellophane, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, eC Cade, Pure Whyte, Shazna Solta, Dragalis Miraxim, Johanthan Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Another ShadeOf Whyte, Heisenberg Hemah, Dewzer Eyre, Ricki Lake Show, Skiff Poddington, Hayley, Logical Fatality, Unwarranted Assumption, Zoe Worclaw, big brutor three, big brutor four, Selina Love, Psy Nose Up, Kill-Chan, Basic Black Bitch, and HSM Captain.
Our Agents take very seriously the Code's prohibition against autopiloting shuttles, even shuttles being carried by other autopiloting vessels. And if our Agents must confiscate 18 billion isk worth of loot in the process, they'll shoulder that burden, too.
Our Agents are elite PvP'ers. They're capable of executing double Hulk kills, triple Hulk kills--even quadruple Hulk kills. Poisen Evey gave our heroes a very special opportunity: She had 20 Hulks in her freighter. The result was a memorable gank for Agents Lawrence Lawton, Bint Bint, Mack Poddington, Ruby Dubes, Ralliana, Skiff Poddington, Hulk Poddington, Sheenah Ash-carrier, Hayley, James Poddington, Vudu Mama Juju, Logical Fallacy, Yvain Bluewater, Archibald Fizzleblade, Logical Fatality, Miner Compliance Officer, Kieren Avent, Yasahi konma, Nin Rin, Valelianjais, Prixm Wind, Unwarranted Assumption, Luna Nightblood, and big brutor four.
An amazing postscript to this gank: After the gank fleet reduced the freighter to 10% structure, apparently necessitating a follow-up attempt, Agents Ralliana and Luna Nightblood appeared out of nowhere in Tornadoes and finished off the target. The CODE always wins!
The rebels and skeptics will find any reason not to take joy in an obviously joyful time. They'll gripe and they'll grouse and they'll snarl, "Why all the freighter kills? Aren't you lot supposed to kill miners?" Perhaps they'll be happy to hear about the destruction of Connie Crow's blingy Skiff with ORE Ice Harvesters. It even had a "Syndicate Damage Control". No permit, though. Agents Jayson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Turkey Baster, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, and Joshua Kusion shocked miners everywhere by entering an ice anomaly to gank a miner. Non-compliant Skiffs, beware!
margie d vito either didn't pay attention to the tens of thousands of pods ganked over the last few years, or she just didn't care. She got her pod to the Niarja gate, but no further. Agent ST0NER SMURF was on patrol.
Her snaked-up pod's speed tank wasn't enough to dodge our Agent's bullets. There's no outrunning the Code.
