Last week ended with April Fools' Day. People have a lot of fun with April Fools' Day, and there's nothing wrong with that, but in our merrymaking let us not forget that there's a serious issue out there--the issue of fools and foolishness. For a bot-aspirant carebear, every day is a fool's day. They can't help it. Not until they embrace the Code, that is. Then they can have normal days like the rest of us. With that in mind, take a look at these kills from the week of March 26th @ 00:00 EVEtime through April 1st @ 23:59 EVEtime.
RolloTamas2 decided to do some unlicensed mining in the Otela system, which is never a good idea. He tanked his Procurer (a little), but soon found himself on the receiving end of Coercers piloted by Agents Hulk Poddington, Skiff Poddington, Lawrence Lawton, Mack Poddington, and James Poddington.
There's a reason why Harvester Mining Drones are illegal. Carebears, the Code is there for your own good.
CALL BABY managed to lose an even more expensive mining ship: A 2.7 billion isk Mackinaw. She was using ORE Strip Miners--another illegal module--which led to her being punished by Agent Mr Morimoto. And 1.5 billion isk of the value of this killmail came from the trio of 'Aoede' Mining Laser Upgrades. Decadent mining equipment is dangerous.
We see a lot of specialized fleets destroying freighters these days, with Taloses, stealth bombers, and the like. Sometimes it's nice to see a good old-fashioned Catalyst gang do the job. Parthanon probably didn't appreciate it, though. His 10.3 billion isk freighter was anti-tanked enough to be taken down by Agents Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri, Trump The King, Shazna Solta, Pure Whyte, Sophie Whyte, Another ShadeOf Whyte, Tawny Rozei, Ruby Rozei, Christine Rozei, Sherri Rozei, Sex K1tten, and Harletta Quinn.
There aren't many items in the game more decadent than Harvester Mining Drones, but 'Excavator' Mining Drones are truly nasty.
Take a look at the armor tank sported by Doran Nymeros's Impel. That's plenty to chew through. But on the other hand, Doran jumped into Uedama. Taking a hauler into the Uedama system these days is basically like self-destructing your ship. Who loads up a 4.3 billion isk hauler and self-destructs it? A Goofus, that's who.
Doran was eliminated by two pillars of the Uedama community: The Kusion family and the Jennifer Duncan Appreciation Society. Agents Jason Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joel Kusion, Sex K1tten, uninstall 02, uninstall 04, uninstall 03, uninstall 01, uninstall 08, uninstall 06, uninstall 05, uninstall 10, and uninstall 09 represented their organizations well.
When one of our Agents scores a particularly impressive kill, sometimes they'll EVEmail me a link to make sure I see it. That was certainly the case here:
Van Upier's Viator was blapped by Agent DOG Z3BRA's Tornado during its visit to Jita 4-4. Twelve billion isk was instantly destroyed.
Insert your own joke about Van Upier's lack of skill.
Another victim of Uedama Syndrome, testarget went on autopilot and lost a Golem. His pod was liberated, only to be snagged by Agents Hagen Fizzleblade and Joshua Kusion.
Two and a half billion isk in implants, gone forever. So much for all that grinding. When you think about it, people like testarget waste a lot of time. If you want to build something that lasts, that actually means something, begin with a proper, Code-compliant foundation.
