It was a disaster of a week for the bot-aspirants and Anti-Gankers, who suffered countless humiliating defeats. The spirit of the Code, as ever, was on full display in highsec. I can't imagine why someone wouldn't buy a mining permit these days. You owe it to yourself! With that thought in mind, from the week of February 19th @ 00:00 EVEtime through February 25th @ 23:59 EVEtime...
Sally Hekki was in a really big hurry. She completely forgot to use modules of any kind on her hauling ship. Indeed, she was in such a hurry she forgot to select a proper ship to haul her 17.4 billion isk cargo. Worst of all, she forgot to buy a New Order permit. It was that last point that got her into the most trouble, because Agent Eva Mavas was on the lookout for permit-less haulers.
How do blueprint copies add up to 17.4 billion isk? When you have over a thousand of them, almost anything's possible.
It was a rough week for Star Uitra. At least, that's what I assume, because why would a happy, healthy, focused individual autopilot their 14.4 billion isk freighter through Niarja? Star was disposed of by Agents Skiff Poddington, Bint Bint, SynthiaGreey, Ricki Lake Show, Fabulous Andy, BoneyTooth Thompkins ISK-Chip, Yojiro, Gea Stormbound, Jack Fizzleblade, Turkey Baster, Git Guud Nurd, Archibald Fizzleblade, Gottfried Fizzleblade, Lawrence Lawton, Slipstream Prediouca, Ivana Freemam, Skeezy McSkeez, Industrial Regulation Supervisor, James Poddington, Schizz Popinov, Franz Fizzleblade, Hulk Poddington, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Hagen Fizzleblade, Interstellar Jihad, Hermann Fizzleblade, and Laelynn Kino.
Our Agents were pleased: They got Fortizar and Orca kills for free!
If you're the type of EVE player who likes to keep his ear to the ground--or if you happened to go to Jita--then you know I've buried the lede this week. For 'twas the week of Burn Jita, which saw the destruction of scores of freighters and jump freighters worth over half a trillion isk. A strong contingent of Imperium tourists made their way to highsec, where they were supplied with free gank ships by their nullsec overlords--and steadied by the presence of elite New Order forces. Needless to say, Estellaa picked the wrong day to bring her 16.8 billion isk jump freighter (with ORE cargo expanders, no less!) to the Jita neighborhood.

Among other things, the jump freighter pilot was hauling a three-pack of PLEX. And people ask why Jita gets burned.
sam hassan somehow managed to fail-fit his Retriever with a capacitor tank and bloat the ship's value to 202 million isk. Don't worry, though--Agents Pod-Goo Repoman and Aaaarrgg were never going to let this one slide.
Coercers were the primary doctrine ship of Burn Jita. Perhaps it was an omen that at the beginning of this week, Arthur Timergaliev assembled a Coercer into one of the worst mining ships ever to disgrace the asteroid belts of highsec. Look at that nonsense. Agent Alexander Kirenski brought a Catalyst to the asteroid belt and showed Arthur how a destroyer is meant to be used.
After all this time, naked pods continue to streak through highsec trade routes. Leviathan I was caught autopiloting near Hek by Agent William Telluric, who has a zero-tolerance policy for unescorted pods.
Leviathan's pod traveled about as fast as a pod can go on autopilot. But it was only a matter of time before justice caught up with her.
