Oof. It's tough to be a non-compliant carebear these days. Highsec was glowing this week, illuminated by the wrecks of countless bot-aspirants. During the month of November alone, the mighty CODE. alliance destroyed nearly 2 trillion isk worth of enemy equipment. A staggering figure--and a stark reminder to all who would dare violate the Code. From the week of November 26th @ 00:00 EVEtime through December 2nd @ 23:59 EVEtime...
The decadence and brazenness of the bot-aspirants, summed up in a single killmail: Vasik1000 managed to lose a Kronos worth over 38 billion isk. This is one of the blingiest ships we've ever seen. He was taken down by the Russian contingent of the New Order, represented by Agents Alarika Maleus, Lass Suicide, Benglish, Pazzesqo, AcemaN LX, Casey Acura, Anjio Siwalin, Rachel O'Conor, Leora Risalo, YAroV, AndroGon Navy, kali laska, tolstyk, Kirill Delami, BOPOHA 1, LisA Scout, Lovchi, Neboskreb, WolfDim, Votre Dieu, Asakra, Mic Warkor, Andrej Minni, VOVKA iz GOMEL, and Narl' Amhar.
It should go without saying, but carebears are not permitted to make use of "purple" modules, i.e. officer mods. This is why. But at least Vasik1000's greed resulted in a nice payday for our Russian friends.
Vortexchaser was the latest Hulk pilot to be bitten by the "capacitor tank" bug. That, combined with a rack of decadent mining yield modules, could only have one outcome: Swift termination at the hands of Agents Pod-Goo RepoWoman, Aaaarrgg, and Pod-Goo Repoman.
When you consider how many freighters and jump freighters our Agents were dunking this past month, it's crazy how much cargo the carebears are still willing to stuff into them. Raul deMalte lost over 15 billion isk when he unwittingly presented himself as target practice for Agents Joel Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Jason Kusion, Jake Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jayson Kusion, ClearLove, Joseph Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Selina Love, Bluekiss, Johnathan Kusion, Padme Love, Khan Ohmiras, Rchard Dan Gold, Ghillie Troll Askold, Basic Black Bitch, Rosanna Love, Lunar Love, Mayana Talin, and Katana Nightswift. And the Kusion family wasn't the only set of multiboxers busy this week:
Le Spietata lost even more than Raul deMalte, suiciding 20 billion isk by AFK'ing into a clever trap set by Agents Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Kittens, and Mining Lord 1999. This time, the ambush was in the Sinq Laison region. Our heroes don't merely camp Uedama and Niarja; all highsec is at their mercy.
Ourk indulged in the egregiously AFK "activity" of mining with an Orca. Agent Inquisitor Gnomon had the perfect solution: Bump him out of mining range with a Machariel. When Ourk returned to his keyboard, he didn't take well to seeing his inactive Orca. So he sent our hero a rude message:
Ourk lost his temper and commanded his Hobgoblins to attack the non-suspect Mach. CONCORD intervened. A similar example of carebear rage took place the day before:
Drake pilot Lucifer II "protected" a known bot fleet by CONCORDing himself in an attempt to stop Agent Jack Vard from bumping the bot fleet's hauler. I suppose when you rely so heavily on bots, it's difficult to think for yourself.
Brebis Noir made her way across New Order territory in the slowest manner possible: Autopiloting in a naked pod. Agent Pod-Goo RepoWoman sped things up for her. Pod-Goo lined up the Capsule in her sights and sent it on the Pod Express.
It was an expensive ticket--3.2 billion isk. I hope it was worth it.
