What is the Code? The Code tells us that it is "Purpose, dignity, structure, order, guidance, leadership." What is bot-aspirancy? It is unnatural. It is not of the human spirit. And so bot-aspirancy often results in the strange and unnatural. As we shall see with selected examples from the week of March 18th @ 00:00 EVEtime through March 24th @ 23:59 EVEtime.
Machariels are good for bumping, but not so well suited for suicide ganks. For some reason, Kaze Blackscar tried to gank Agents Krig Povelli and Marcus Luttrell Khan with a 732 million isk Machariel. Our heroes sat back and watched the action until CONCORD arrived.
Indeed, many carebears have been trying to gank Agent Krig's Orca. What possessed them?
Mival Valmik's Vagabond was incinerated by Agents Minx Mattel, Maximus Gooseman, and Salah ad-Din al-Jawahiri. I could point out what was wrong with this Vagabond, but Salah already made a list:
The rebels don't lack for resources; they don't need to scrounge in junkyards for spare parts. Their fits are bad because they are bad.
Anoya Kusoni spared no expense on her blingy Barghest battleship. She spent and spent and spent until it was worth 5.8 billion isk. Too bad it didn't have a pilot.
Agents Captain Cortar, Jack Fizzleblade, Franz Fizzleblade, Hermann Fizzleblade, Archibald Fizzleblade, Pure Whyte, Lutz Fizzleblade, Sophie Whyte, Origo Lim, Another ShadeOf Whyte, Ashley Whyte, Karl Friedrich Fizzleblade, Erich Fizzleblade, Walther Fizzleblade, Hagen Fizzleblade, brainlet, Gottfried Fizzleblade, Shazna Solta, Shy Elf Trap, patyooki, Serious Web Developer, PogChampion, Daniel Chanline, erobb, tumblr ptsd, James BIG BONED, and oink piggu tried to wake up the Barghest by pinging it with torpedoes and such, but they got no reaction until it exploded.
We all know that freighters have very limited fitting options. Serega Baron was determined to stretch those limits as far as he could. He managed to fit a Civilian Armor Repairer, which served as a last resort active tank in case he was ganked. Unfortunately for the carebear, he was out-damaged by Agents Ruby Rozei, Trump The King, Shanade Rozei, Christine Rozei, Katy Rozei, Baron Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Sherri Rozei, Giselle Rozei, Tawny Rozei, Ivanka Rozei, holdmybeer, and Harletta Quinn.
Heros Stellarum saw so many freighter pilots lose everything during Burn Jita. He was determined not to be like them. He waited a few weeks--and then lost it all. Heros went AFK and was forced to pay back taxes by Agents Australian Excellence, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Shardani, Tax Collector Aruka, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector Richard, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Larry, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector Kimi, Tax Collector AynRand, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Yuna, Tax Collector Buck, Tax Collector Fuemi, Dr Hattrick, and I eat RedCrayons.
Insidious Sainthood lost a 2 billion isk Tengu. No one knows where Insidious was at the time, but it probably wasn't anywhere near his keyboard. Agents holdmybeer and oink piggu more than doubled the bot-aspirant's losses by catching his 3.7 billion isk pod.
Plenty of tank implants. But there's no tank in highsec that the Code cannot pierce.
