Agent Aaaarrgg made history with 10,000 pod kills on a single character. It's funny how carebears think that somehow they won't get caught, when there are Agents like Aaaarrgg on patrol.
Clearly, Aaaarrgg knows a thing or two about the Code, and he's been incredibly successful over a long period due to it. But this week, from May 21st @ 00:00 EVEtime through May 27th @ 23:59 EVEtime, I want to show you what happens when someone gets intensely in tune with the Code over a more compressed period of time. But first...
Mrs Hekki's wasn't the most expensive hauler destroyed by our Agents this week, but it was a peculiar one. For some reason, Mrs Hekki thought blinging up her Bustard would make it a less attractive target. Instead, her fittings managed to cost more than her cargo. It's like she protected her valuables with a diamond-encrusted, solid gold padlock. Agents Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector Hill, Pod Destroyer Molly, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector HongMei, Australian Excellence, and Tax Collector Aruka blapped the Bustard.
Sauft Kitty set a course for everyone's favorite trade route choke-point and crashed a party hosted by the Fizzleblades, the Kusions, and several of their closest friends. No one likes an uninvited guest. Agents Unfit ForDoody, SynthiaGreey, Yojiro, Bratok Srayona, Tarwinz, Alexis Grixis, Elite Highsec PvP, BAE B BLUE, BAE B PEW, Hermann Fizzleblade, Sigmund Jund, Emergent Gameplay, Joe Kouvo, Darnoth, Gottfried Fizzleblade, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Jasper Esper, Franz Fizzleblade, Whitney Wooberg, Archibald Fizzleblade, Hagen Fizzleblade, Grant Bant, Ivana Freemam, Jack Fizzleblade, Dixie Lot, Jason Kusion, Joel Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, and Jimaya Tekitsu bounced Sauft Kitty from their party, and festivities resumed.
Duke Starhammer. This guy. Last week he was caught with a 460 million isk Covetor. Ol' Duke decided to double down with a 689 million isk Mackinaw. The scent of ORE Strip Miners attracted a bunch of professors from The Lawton School for Pubbies Who Can't Mine Good: Agents Hulk Poddington, Skiff Poddington, Mack Poddington, James Poddington, and Lawrence Lawton.
Duke Starhammer > What the hell? why are you fucking with me?Class dismissed. A few days later, Lawrence was putting together his lesson plan for the next class, and it occurred to him that Duke Starhammer's alts might also be in possession of illegal modules...
Lawrence Lawton > Because you're mining without a permit in James 315 space.
Duke Starhammer > Fuck your permit.
Duke Starhammer > Your stupid rule is not a real rule or concord wouldn't kill you. so piss off you wankers
Lawrence Lawton > Highsec belongs to James 315.
Duke Starhammer > You are delusional
Lawrence Lawton > My delusion just cost you a lot of money XD
Ouch! Rhys Starhammer was using a 513 million isk fail-fit Covetor with yet another pair of ORE Strip Miners. Agents Hulk Poddington, James Poddington, and Lawrence Lawton destroyed the ship, along with another Starhammer alt flying a 486 million isk Covetor.
Interestingly--alarmingly--another 450 million isk Covetor piloted by someone apparently unaffiliated with the Starhammer gang was popped this week by Agents Crom Cimmeria and Subotai Hyrkanian.
Lesson: If you're using ORE Strip Miners, especially in "cheap" mining barge hulls, our Agents will find you.
Something was rotten in the Ashab system: It was Ohmdeath, who was stinking up the joint with a facepalm-fit mining battleship. Agents Skiff Poddington, Hulk Poddington, Mack Poddington, James Poddington, and Lawrence Lawton once again found themselves at the scene of the crime, and they were more than willing to make the arrest.
To read more about this incident, check out Lawrence's blog. Needless to say, Ohmdeath needs the kind of help that only the New Order can provide.
Goblin Rus lost the Pod of the Week, an isk-bomb worth 2.4 billion that was hidden in his Mackinaw. Despite mining in a 0.9 security system, Goblin was discovered by--you guessed it--Agent Lawrence Lawton. He and his fellow scholars dissected Goblin's Mackinaw and savored the juicy Capsule inside.
It's remarkable that Lawrence managed to find so many exotic bot-aspirants to kill this week, spread across the Domain, Khanid, and Kor-Azor regions. How did he do it? Elite PvP? Yeah, that's part of the answer, but I think Lawrence was just exceptionally in tune with the Code this week. Try the Code for yourself, and you'll be amazed at the results you get.
