The key to a healthy, vibrant highsec ecology? Very, very, very strong enforcement of the Code. Nothing else works, believe me. But just in case you don't, read up on what happened during the week of December 24th @ 00:00 EVEtime through December 30th @ 23:59 EVEtime...
Uedama is a favorite location for ganking freighters in part because it's a 0.5 security system. Perhaps recognizing this, LINKIN HY did his best to stick to safer systems, such as Iyen-Oursta, which boasts a stifling 0.8 security status. What he didn't count on was a massive fleet from the mighty CODE. alliance.
Agents Australian Excellence, Giselle Rozei, Tax Collector Max, Taxman Daniel, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Hill, Tawny Rozei, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Christine Rozei, Sherri Rozei, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Kittens, Pod Destroyer Molly, Jayson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jake Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Ruby Rozei, Jason Kusion, Shanade Rozei, Katy Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Tax Collector HongMei, Trump The King, HSM MasterChief, Harletta Quinn, and Lobo El Lobo brought in dozens of stealth bombers and took the 28 billion isk jump freighter apart.
Interestingly, another 22.5 billion isk jump freighter in the same system, also equipped with a rack of ORE cargo expanders, was killed that same day. Was there some sinister plot at work?
...Maybe so, because Gina Lin also lost a triple-ORE jump freighter in the same system. Same day, too. Gina's monster was even more expensive, weighing in at nearly 35 billion isk!
Agents Jason Kusion, Trump The King, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Jayden Kusion, Joel Kusion, Tax Collector Max, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Tawny Rozei, Tax Collector HongMei, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Hill, Sherri Rozei, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Aruka, Christine Rozei, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Kittens, Jackson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Shanade Rozei, Jeremiah Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Giselle Rozei, Joshua Kusion, Ruby Rozei, Jayson Kusion, Katy Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Getwrekts0n, Lobo El Lobo, and Harletta Quinn proved yet again that no system in highsec is safe for a Code violator.
Don't do that.
Blingy exhumers are a thing of the past, but don't tell that to Remus Quarantino. Actually, do. He needs to hear it. Agents Maximus Gooseman, Edmund Sublett, and Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri reduced the miner's 1.3 billion isk Mackinaw to stardust.
Remember Haze Tveskoeg? He's one of Nakugard's uppity miners. He eventually decided to start mining in a Skiff, not so much out of deference to the Code, but because he thought it would make him immune.
It didn't. Haze was defeated in elite PvP by Agent Krig Povelli. CONCORD also intervened in the battle, not that Krig needed the help.
In the wake of his stunning defeat, Haze found himself at a crossroads.
Instead of crying any further, Haze chose a different path.
Maybe there's hope for Haze. We'll see.
How decadent can a battleship get? Jotkin Hekki injected nearly 6 billion isk into this manifestation of his hubris. Look at that blingy capacitor tank. Agents Jayson Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jason Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jackson Kusion, and Joel Kusion were on the case. They never leave Uedama unguarded for too long.
Valera75 Ufa managed to disgrace himself in a battleship, too: He lost a 2.3 billion isk Rattlesnake and then Agent Tax Collector HongMei popped the bot-aspirant's 3.1 billion isk pod. What a memorable day that must've been for Valera75.
Whoever sells all these expensive implants must love the New Order.
The buyers, less so.
