Death. Destruction. Ignominy. These are some of the things that await all those who would disobey the Code. Anonymous commenters make unverified claims to the contrary: "Oh, don't worry about the mighty CODE. alliance. I've been mining without a permit every day for 30 years and never even saw a CODE. member in local." Woe to the carebear who believes the Anonymous commenter! They'll end up like these poor souls from the week of November 5th @ 00:00 EVEtime through November 11th @ 23:59 EVEtime:
Yeah, let's go ahead and start off with the nonuple-anti-tanked hauler who lost 41.8 billion isk. Cian jumped into Uedama with a supercarrier's worth of cargo. It's unclear what he was thinking, though "nothing" would probably be a good guess. He was incinerated by Agents Jason Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, a fat potato, Fatally Wounded Pineapple, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, and Jeremiah Kusion.
And the cargo... the cargo...
You know, as we reported earlier, the Kusion family was permabanned by CCP and then they reversed the permaban. Think about that, carebears. Why do you think CCP unbanned Kusion? They knew who he was--what he was. They unbanned him to kill.
The rebellious miner said to himself, "CODE. is ganking freighters like crazy. Now's my chance to get in some illegal mining, while they're distracted!" What a Goofus. Stellar Za learned that the New Order is more than capable of controlling every aspect of highsec life, simultaneously. Agent Guybertini had plenty of time to nuke the 500 million isk Covetor while freighters were dropping like flies in Uedama.
Arazno Masirias learned a similar lesson, though his was even more expensive. His outdated, decadent Hulk was worth 1.3 billion isk before Agents Votre Dieu and Narl' Amhar reduced it to ashes. Get a clue, miners. Read the Code.
The New Order kills freighters, it kills miners, it kills mission-runners... And sometimes, it kills mission-runners with miners. Spud RWC received a painful introduction to the more exotic contingent of Code enforcers when undercover Agent Lucy Inthesky Withdiamonds unleashed her Orca's drones against Spud's Tengu. "Ships that can't shoot back", indeed.
"If only someone had warned me!" cries the bot-aspirant, "Then I would've paid!" Baloo was warned...
...But he chose not to heed the warning.
Baloo probably realized, on some level, that he was going to lose everything. Yet he was too stubborn to embrace the Code.
After a long period of bumping, Baloo lost his heavily tanked Bowhead. His ship certainly had the ability to soak up a lot of damage. However, he was facing a truly massive CODE. fleet. If you're an Anti-Ganker and you want to feel even worse than you already do, check out the composition of the fleet that killed Baloo's Bowhead.
Agents Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector Kittens, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Aruka, Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector BokChoy, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Larry, Tax Collector Buck, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector Kimi, Tax Collector Shardani, Tawny Rozei, Shanade Rozei, Katy Rozei, Baron Rozei, Sherri Rozei, Ruby Rozei, Giselle Rozei, Christine Rozei, Tax Collector Yuna, Trump The King, Lagatha Rozei, unknown observer, John Ratcliffe, Lobo El Lobo, Adriana Thermopylae, and Alexis Thermopylae brought an amount of firepower sure to make any Anti-Ganker hang his head in shame--if said head wasn't already in that position.
Oh, and they killed Baloo's 2.3 billion isk pod, too.
Synegry went retro, autopiloting in a shuttle through New Order territory. She was in the Kador region, so maybe she assumed she wouldn't be hunted by any of the New Order's heavy-hitters. If so, she was badly mistaken; our Agents are everywhere in highsec. Agent Aaaarrgg himself was on patrol that day, and I think it's fair to say that Aaaarrgg likes to gank shuttles.
Synegry's shuttle cracked open to reveal a 3.1 billion isk pod. The pod had a little bit of everything. Now it has nothing. So it goes for the Code violator.
