You've heard, "KISS: Keep It Simple, Stupid." There's an easy way to avoid being ganked in highsec--obey the Code. But the carebears don't want to do the obviously reasonable thing, so they come up with a bunch of crazy ways to get around obeying the Code. The result is that they get ganked every time. For example, from the week of May 7th @ 00:00 EVEtime through May 13th @ 23:59 EVEtime...
Another bling Retriever? Is this a trend now? Novak Dritus weighed his options carefully. A bling Retriever has less yield, tank, and cargo than a Mackinaw, but is more expensive. Novak concluded that this was the way to go. But Agent Galaxy Pig was not so sure. Scratch two more ORE Strip Miners.
If there's one constant in EVE, it's that the Code always wins. If there are two constants, it's that Anti-Ganking always fails.
Atach Hann was set up for a big fall when his 2.7 billion isk Proteus was lured into the field of battle, only to be blapped by Agents Underpaid Ship Mechanic, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector HongMei, and Taxman Daniel.
Atach Hann soon found himself losing another Proteus when he was tricked into attacking Australian Excellence's suspect hauling ship--just before Australian used a Bowhead to grab a combat ship.
Anti-Gankers get ganked more often that they prevent ganks. Maybe they should call themselves "Pro-Ganking"?
Connie Wilkins loaded up a 15.2 billion isk freighter and lost it to gankers. But she can at least take some satisfaction in the knowledge that the means by which she was ganked was somewhat unusual: Her ship was taken down by a group of heavily-armed Tornadoes and Taloses from the Gate Tax Collection Agency: Agents Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Taxman Daniel, Australian Excellence, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Kittens, Luna Nightblood, Tax Collector Richard, Ralliana, Tax Collector Stroheim, Underpaid Ship Mechanic, Tax Collector Max, and Tax Collector Hill.
Tech III ships are designed to be incredibly versatile. They can be configured in all sorts of different ways. Leknaat 99 devised an extraordinarily specialized Proteus fit that was perfectly tailored for one thing: Being dunked. Agents Joel Kusion, Jake Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jason Kusion, and Joshua Kusion rallied to the defense of Uedama and dunked the Proteus.
On the surface, Sativa X's Hulk doesn't appear to be special in any way. We must take a closer look.
Agent Arden Elenduil killed the Hulk using a hauler, and he went on to pop Sativa's 820 million isk pod. How was this accomplished? Can-flipping! Yes, Sativa was actually jetcan mining and used her drones to attack Arden after he scooped her ore. Arden's hauler retaliated with drones of its own, which, being deployed for the sake of the Code, naturally triumphed. A wave of nostalgia no doubt washes over the veteran can-flippers among us.
Shisarah didn't know it, but she was making herself conspicuous by autopiloting in a shuttle. Needless to say, Agent Aaaarrgg noticed her.
After a recent lull, a pod worth 2.2 billion isk brings back the Pod of the Week feature. Seems as though Shisarah fancied herself quite the gunslinger. But trust me--the best combat pilots in EVE are all in the New Order.
