It has often been said that in the end, good will ultimately triumph over evil. However, it seems that in highsec, we don't need to wait very long; good triumphs over evil on a constant basis. Hence the New Order's daily (yet still extraordinary) victories. For a mere sample, feast your eyes on these kills from the week of January 28th @ 00:00 EVEtime through February 3rd @ 23:59 EVEtime:
Puke patrol! We have sadly, seen numerous mining battleships before. But Solal Ott raised the stakes with this atrocity--a faction battleship. Thank goodness for the resolve of Agents Alt Void, Alt O, Erigeneia, Alt 10, Alt 00, Dr Petrosilius Zwackelmann, Alt Proxy, and Piz Caldera, who looked horror right in its face and still managed to coordinate a successful gank.
Cpt Jay Fury assigned himself one great mission: To tank his mining ship enough to protect its pair of decadent ORE Strip Miners. Cpt Jay threw himself into the task, grabbing hull, armor, and shield tank modules. Apparently he didn't realize he was tanking up a Retriever, which is like designing a piece of heavily reinforced tissue paper. Agents Konrad Boros, Lewak, Maximus Gooseman, and Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri reduced the inexcusably expensive mining barge to rubble.
Unlike Cpt Jay, Ronin Woman didn't bother with all of that tanking nonsense. Hers was a more serene bot-aspirancy; she was even content to leave some of her fitting slots empty. Agent Guybertini blasted the blingy Mackinaw with a rare gank Naga.
Selli Sever breathed a sigh of relief when she brought her jump freighter safely into a 1.0 security system. Actually, two minor corrections: First, Selli probably didn't breathe a sigh of relief, since she wasn't at her keyboard at the time. Second, she didn't enter the system safely--because there is no safety without the Code.
A gank like this in a 1.0 system requires a lot of firepower. A truly titanic gank armada descended upon the target: Agent Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector HongMei, Australian Excellence, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Richard, Taxman Daniel, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jake Kusion, Justin Kusion, Tax Tickler, Dead Black Whale, Dead Blue Whale, Dead Red Whale, Dead Orange Whale, Dead Pink Whale, Dead Purple Whale, Dead Geen Whale, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector Max, Jason Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Dead Gray Whale, Jackson Kusion, Tax Collector Kimi, Tax Collector Shardani, Tax Collector Larry, Dead Brown Whale, Joshua Kusion, Dead Yellow Whale, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector Buck, Tax Collector Yuna, Tax Collector AynRand, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Jeremiah Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, HSM Chief PettyOfficer, Din Dong MingMong, and Ektallion. All welcome the "Dead Whale" family!
Adikas blundered his way through highsec, preferring bulkheads to a mining permit. Big mistake. Adikas soon found himself on the receiving end of a gank of epic proportions--a combined effort of the New Order and NCPL: Agents Australian Excellence, Taxman Daniel, Lorkrakt Atavuli, Shmores, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Aruka, Kohan Cridmon, Danktor, Justin Kusion, Tax Collector Hill, Jayson Kusion, Tax Collector HongMei, Dooderary, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Kimi, Johnathan Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Tax Collector Stroheim, Jayden Kusion, Tax Collector Yuna, Evan Giants, Tax Collector Buck, Tax Collector AynRand, Joel Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector Larry, Tax Collector Shardani, Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Sooooooooooo, Tax Collector Fuemi, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Nicholas Fett, Oswald Askold, Salvador Codolle, Miss Princess, TheLegend47, Titus Dallo, Jason Kusion, Ainsley Corey, Francis Edier, Korgi Belwuf, Lupus Caedora, brainlet, and Sneeze.
Because bumpers usually don't show up on killmails, they tend not to get the credit they deserve. Even so, their heroism is legendary.
...And, I would add, the carebears don't realize how much skill it takes to do bumping right. Hence, they tend to die when they try their hand at it. Bumping is arguably the most elite PvP that EVE has to offer.
After his Noctis was dispatched, Spatter Analyst got a rare opportunity: To study his own spatter. Agent Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri splattered the carebear's pod, leaving behind plenty of spatter to be analyzed.
A Goofus and his implants are soon parted. The sooner, frankly, the better.
