Kills of the Week

Today's post begins with a special public service announcement: is phasing out its API system this month, so if you want your kills to continue to be recorded, go to their website and click on the link in the upper-right corner. You don't need to create an account for zKillboard or a new API; the link takes you to the official EVE website where you can authorize EVE to send your kills to zKillboard and other killboard sites automatically.

With that bit of business out of the way, we begin our review of kills from the week of January 29th @ 00:00 EVEtime through February 4th @ 23:59 EVEtime.

How bad can things get without the Code? This bad. AlienCranium planned to hull-tank his Tayra, but then he used a bunch of cargo expanders to reduce the ship's hull. AlienCranium hedged his bets by adding a capacitor tank, but it was no use. Agent Votre Dieu easily destroyed the 2,050-hitpoint ship and collected eight and a half billion isk of loot.

This is why you always inject skills before you design a ship.

Remember how the rebel carebears all bragged that Orcas would be invulnerable after CCP gave them their latest hitpoint boost? xavia wamadu relied on CCP so heavily that he saw no need to use common sense. Even so, common sense was delivered to him by Agents Miner Compliance Officer, Yvain Bluewater, Nin Rin, Prixm Wind, Hayley, Unwarranted Assumption, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, Logical Fallacy, Lawrence Lawton, Unfit ForDoody, Darnoth, Knackered Old Goat, The O'Reilly Factor, Fabulous Andy, James Poddington, Hulk Poddington, Skiff Poddington, Justin Kusion, Ricki Lake Show, Mack Poddington, Jason Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jake Kusion, and Loose Tawate.

The price of common sense: A Fortizar, numerous capital blueprints, and the self-respect of one Orca pilot.

Capt Aleksandr fancied himself a leader of the Anti-Ganking community. The term "community" must be used loosely--and while we're at it, the same goes for the term "Anti-Ganking". Like so many others who would interfere with a gank, Capt Aleksandr found himself on the receiving end of one: A fine gank by Agents Skiff Poddington, Hulk Poddington, Lawrence Lawton, James Poddington, and Mack Poddington.

The Anti-Ganker lost his 770 million isk Tornado. But the really good news is that for once, we don't need to ask where Anti-Ganking was!

Saturator was far too careful to go AFK and autopilot in some big, plodding freighter, or a razor-thin industrial or shuttle. Instead, she chose a hauler that can warp while cloaked. It's almost impossible to catch a covops ship without a bubble. This was highsec, so Agent Ralliana didn't have a bubble. She had something even more effective: the Code.

Miss 1500 loaded up her 20.7 billion isk jump freighter, set her autopilot for the Uedama pipe, and went AFK. Or, as the nerf-begging carebears would say, "She did everything possible to avoid being ganked, but game mechanics favored the gankers."

Agents Yvain Bluewater, Logical Fatality, Miner Compliance Officer, Hayley, Prixm Wind, Nin Rin, Fabulous Andy, Unwarranted Assumption, Unfit ForDoody, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, big brutor three, Darnoth, Morrigan Laima, big brutor four, The O'Reilly Factor, Ricki Lake Show, Jason Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Lawrence Lawton, Jake Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Mack Poddington, Logical Fallacy, Hulk Poddington, Skiff Poddington, HSM Fleet Admiral, and UglyMcDuckFace objected to Miss 1500's actions, for their scouts reported this:

Nice try. Our heroes were pleased by the 20.7 billion isk kill. As it turned out, Miss 1500 was hiding even more expensive cargo inside that ship:

Miss 1500 was still AFK as the gank fleet extracted an additional 6.8 billion isk penalty. Agent James Poddington snatched up the pod--which managed to be extraordinarily decadent considering all but one of the hardwiring slots were empty.

Whoever sold that Ascendancy set to Miss 1500 sold her a lie. No matter how much money you spend on implants, there's no escaping the Code.


  1. Before anymore Codex fakers go on posting. I haven't figured out why you are so determined to go out of your way to fake everything and target me. (sad but true) Stop sending me links to this website via mail. "sonny chavez" "red Foreskin" Or even the random spam of the TNT systems high guard in local (Childish, and doesn't display any positive part of your community."Shootyou"). If your mad then just attack me (if you can) and get your anger out like normal.

    Enjoy the Sunday. :D

    1. What's the matter codex? Did you start some shit you can't finish and now you want to weasel your way out?

      After all your bluster and bragging do you now wish this would all just go away?
      I don't think it's going to be that easy for you.

      You WILL learn that there are repercussions in Eve when you attack other players outside the game context, and we will not stop until your education is complete. Think of it as "no shitter left behind". I am sure you, as a child of a ghetto queen, are familiar with the concept.

      Please keep blaming it all on tnt, just makes it more fun for me while I continue your education. See you soon, shitter.

  2. Why are you trying to harass TNT? This is beginning to look like an obsession Codex. This is not healthy, maybe you need a break.

  3. Glad to see another victorious week for the code. Meanwhile AG fails non stop daily :D

    1. D35: AG hasn't failed. Only that those ganks successfully defended do not make this list. I should also point out that the objective of AG is not to protect every single ship. But rather, it's objective is to engage CODE et al in meaningful and effective PvP. So as to prefent CODE enforcement agents from succumbing to those very same evils of, "bot aspirant behaviour", which CODE claims to be stamping out.

    2. @1151 That's bs. ag has always said their main goal was to stop gankers and protect bot aspirants. The ag narrative changed only after they realized that they were the losing side.

      So once again ag fails non stop daily, always!

      The ag crowd won't even join a player corp and rally behind a "flag". How can ag expect anyone to take them seriously when they hide in NPC corps. ag is simply too scared to be effective. You will garner no support while hiding behind the safety of NPC skirts like bot aspirants.

      I mean ag don't really even exist as a group. If they did we could look up their corp/alliance. Instead the 'members' of ag hide in NPC corps, or "starter corps" as CCP refers to them. NPC corps fail non stop daily, always!

      "it's objective is to engage CODE et al in meaningful and effective PvP." WTF? Really? I highly doubt anyone believes this, but you just keep crying about how ag don't fail daily.

      First you would need to link some proof, like a player corp named some version of "antiganking" or "highsec militiahahaha", (sorry that one always makes me laugh) with a corresponding killboard.
      Until then "ag" most certainly does fail non stop daily.

      Unless you have proof otherwise, ag has never stopped a gank. If you do have proof, link the ag killboard please. Zkill is the standard and widely accepted as fact, if ag has no zkill page then they dont exist.

      Did I just get trolled by codex biovector? He also makes a lot of claims with no proof. But in his defense, he is a braindead shitter. Is that ags excuse also?

    3. @0148 Typical strawman argument. You can't know whether one has succeeded or failed until you know what their objectives are.

      As for your last claim yes. AG has successfully defeated multiple ganks. Sadly however you notion that an succeful AG results in a Zkill record is flawed. The lack of a freighter kill does not register on Zkill - and there have been many wheren we have countered the bumpers and got the freighter into warp before the kill fleet arrives on scene. Those engagements are not on Zkill.

    4. @403
      "Alternative facts" are not really facts.

      If antiganking really wanted to be antigankers, they would join as a corp and actively fight CODE. Otherwise they are all just scared little npc bots.

      Make a stand or gtfo. No one respects cowards.

      Learn what 'strawman' really means. Hint: it applies to your first comment at 1151.

      "I should also point out that the objective of AG is not to protect every single ship"
      Gankers kill 95% of what they go after, or more according to the killboards. Meaning ag fails non stop daily.
      Mostly because "ag" does not even exist, rather it's obvious that a few scared little mice were just mad at CODE and decided to call themselves "antiganking" instead of the more accurate "highsec carebears that are afraid of pvp". Or something along those lines.

      Talk about strawmen, calling yourself "antiganking" when you are obviously "antisandbox", now thats some propaganda.

      gtfo Pejedas, shouldn't you be having a meltdown on the forums?
      Or are you going by "codex" now?

    5. Bwuah ha ha ha ha! Gankers getting really mad now. XD XD XD

      "Pwease get into a corp so we can war dec you!"

      LOL! Where you been bro, we were not all born last month. Our mains ARE in corps! Our anti-gankers and vigilantes not so much! lol! XD XD

      Keep raging bro! Anti-ganking is awesome! Thanks for the tears!


    6. That's a lot of rage pejedus.
      It looks like you are not mad at all.

      You have no main characters, only your npc alts. Proof or gtfo pejedus/codex.

    7. Antigankers patting each other on the back for failing to stop ganks XD XD.

      ag failing non-stop daily!!!!1

  4. "...the objective of AG is not to protect every single ship. But rather, it's objective is to engage CODE et al in meaningful and effective PvP."

    That is quite a shift of the goalposts! The AG community *has* undergone a major shift of purpose in the past few months. AG don't even expect to stop ganks anymore and that they have given up on their original goal of saving the miners. Now they follow Miniluv and Kusion around for the hauler kills. They look for a target being bumped and the cluster around to whore on the CONCORD kills and to grab whatever loot they can after the target dies. They are frequently seen to blame the victim for his poor choices.

    1. @Lawrence: While being sympathetic to the plight of CODE victims, we do have shared concerns about poor fitting choices and bad survivability practices. AG do take the time to educate victims on how they could improve their chances of survival. Unlike CODE, AG claims no dominion over highsec, does not charge fees... As such, no duty of care is acknowledged with regard to saving CODE victims - and our purpose in performing AG is to stifle CODE, defy it's dominion and engage it directly but defeating it's aims. The purpose of AG is to harm CODE's ganking efficiency by creating an unknown element. Forcing an increase in the margin of error and thereby cutting into CODE's profit margin.

      While we may agree with CODE that "bot aspirant" and poor fitting choices are bad for the game. We do not acknowledge the sovereignty of CODE, we do not support thugs and extortionists, we mine and haul as we please, without a licences, we defy you to gank us, and we will shoot any CODE enforcement agents on sight.

      The very fact that we exist means that CODE has not won it's objectives.

    2. Dear Anon @ 4:34

      "The very fact that we exist means that CODE has not won it's objectives."

      Bwawhahahhaahaha. Now that is some spectacular delusion right there. Comedy gold baby!!

    3. The Code is truly an impressive document. That it is still as applicable four years later is an indication of the foresight involved in its creation. It is no exaggeration to say that it Always Wins.

      1. Introduces an element of risk in Highsec; dispels the illusion that CONCORD makes Highsec safe;
      2. Discourages AFK gameplay and botting by favoring emergent gameplay;
      3. Fosters a spirit of appreciation and punishes the attitude of entitlement;

      AG always fails;

      The fact that you agree with us that bot-aspirant and poor fitting choices are bad for the game is a victory under points 1 and 3.

      The very fact that you exist to oppose us is a victory under point 2.
