The scale of the carnage was unthinkable. More freighters were killed this week than during the original Burn Jita event. And they're still dying. Cling to the Code or be vanquished!
Lilith Eros of the inaptly named Try Not To Die corp jumped her jump freighter into Uedama and faced a lynch mob--no, a justice mob: Agents unknown boat, Sherri Rozei, Ruby Rozei, Christine Rozei, Ashley Whyte, Giselle Rozei, Shanade Rozei, unknown observer, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Aruka, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector Max, Trump The King, Tax Collector Stroheim, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector BokChoy, Ivanka Rozei, Katy Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Tawny Rozei, and Tom Jamess.
People often ask, "How do jump freighters die in highsec? Can't they use their jump drives to escape, even when they're being bumped?"
Lilith Eros > Yay fuckboysThe solution to this mystery is that even when a jump freighter pilot isn't AFK, they may behave like a Goofus.
Lilith Eros > So ... You gonna shoot me and die likes the scrubs you are
Lilith Eros > or just gonna do this all day
Lilith Eros > there we go
Australian Excellence > why no cyno?
Lilith Eros > No idea
Lilith Eros > Something about a session change
Ashley Whyte > bro where was your cyno
Lilith Eros > nvm its dead now
Florik Cadmus was on the lookout for those nasty multiboxing gankers. Confident that there weren't any groups of gankers nearby who were big enough to take down his ship, Florik went AFK. He had no idea that the New Order's Russian contingent, though smaller, had plenty of firepower thanks to its Taloses. Agents KaMiKaDzExD, tolstyk, Bastian Mart, Alarik Maleus, kali laska, Elizabet Hildebrand, Rachel O'Conor, KENTua, AndroGon Navy, Votre Dieu, Asakra, and Sumail Serine knocked out another dangerous enemy.
Of course, while all those freighters and jump freighters were dying, it's not as though the highsec miners were getting a pass. Serge Hunter quietly chewed rocks in a 0.9 security system, completely oblivious to the fact that he was being tracked by a crack team of miner gankers: Agents Maximus Gooseman, V-ktor Dolus, Razakien Okel, and Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri. In addition to a full rack of 'Carpo' Mining Laser Upgrades, Serge had over 300 million isk worth of mining drones--sitting in his cargo.
Oldenfarten was convinced that highsec was totally, 100% safe. Isn't that what the carebears had demanded of CCP? He must've believed there wasn't the slightest possibility of losing his jump freighter. There's no other explanation for his 40 billion isk blunder. Oldenfarten is a bot-aspirant.
Agents Etrisa, Blasty McVoidFace, Ido Adudu, ClearLove, Lucita Pappotte, ZAKURELL0 LINDA, Franz Fizzleblade, SynthiaGreey, Yasashi konma, Jet Set Milly, SIR TANK, Nasagasa Bump, Rena Skjem, Collateralized Contracts, dAbOsSlAdY77, Private Panacan, Jack Fizzleblade, Lunar Love, Jayson Kusion, Jason Kusion, Richard Dan Gold, SKAfan, Bluekiss, Joshua Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Perlo Tissant, Urban Worrier, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Selina Love, Archibald Fizzleblade, Hermann Fizzleblade, Johnathan Kusion, Kon Xanithex, Ganking Service, Hagen Fizzleblade, Gottfried Fizzleblade, Jasune Orda, Basic Black Bitch, Walther Fizzleblade, Mark Ormerant, Nion Nostro, Horace Goes Ganking, Rosanna Love, Justin Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jake Kusion, Padme Love, Unfit ForDoody, Skafan Utisa, Chemical brother, bi mistuff, Tarwin JR, and Toadshroom Princess got on the mega killmail.
And just how did Oldenfarten manage to bloat his ship to 40 billion isk?
It doesn't help to have stuff like this in your cargo.
Lord Sarevok put all of his faith in his ability to tank his Bowhead: Reinforced bulkheads, bulkhead rigs, a damage control unit... but no mining permit. He had nearly a quarter of a million hitpoints, but he lacked the Code. That was enough to undo everything else. Agents Australian Excellence, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Aruka, Taxman Daniel, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Trump The King, Ruby Rozei, Tawny Rozei, Sherri Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Christine Rozei, Giselle Rozei, Shanade Rozei, Katy Rozei, Procuror Ognev, Ivanka Rozei, Harletta Quinn, and Jay Riddick threw Taloses and stealth bombers into the fight. They won. Go on, deny that this was elite PvP. I dare you.
Lord Sarevok, having just lost his 30 billion isk Bowhead, certainly picked the wrong moment to be AFK. Otherwise he might've kept his pod from being added to the butcher's bill. Agent Baron Rozei lit it up and was rewarded with a nearly 6 billion isk killmail.
Silly carebears. You can't put turrets on a Bowhead. You can aim turrets at one, though.
