The mighty CODE. alliance just can't stop scoring victories. This week was victory after victory after victory. If no one can stop us--and the evidence is clear that they can't--then where will it end? In more victory, of course.
From the week of April 22nd @ 00:00 EVEtime through April 28th @ 23:59 EVEtime:
Let's start with one of those "ships that can shoot back": Lastshadow Umbra's 4.6 billion isk bling marauder. Isk doesn't translate into combat effectiveness, however. No matter how much he spent on weapons and defenses, Lastshadow was, at his core, a carebear. He was no match for elite PvP'ers like Agents Ralliana, Luna Nightblood, and Underpaid Ship Mechanic.
...And lest our Agents be accused of picking on defense-ful combat ships, Serana Quinoxx's unarmed, defenseless hauler met the same fate. For Serana failed to obey the Code, and that meant his ship was destined to become a wreck. He was killed by the trio that killed the Golem: Agents Underpaid Ship Mechanic, Ralliana, and Luna Nightblood.
Freighters have been dying in unprecedented numbers, yet they won't stop trying to AFK their way through Uedama. Arodan Malvar spent nearly 26 billion isk on his reckless gamble against the power of the Code. He lost, of course. Agents Little Miss Scary, Sherri Rozei, Little Miss Bossy, Little Miss Naughty, Little Miss Stubborn, Helen Mary Leese, Little Miss Bad, Trump The King, Giselle Rozei, Ruby Rozei, Lagatha Rozei, Shanade Rozei, Christine Rozei, Katy Rozei, Baron Rozei, Ivanka Rozei, Tawny Rozei, holdmybeer, and Lobo El Lobo bet on the Code--and won big.
Always bet on the Code.
Characternumber210492's name sounded a little bot-aspirant to our Agents, so they investigated him. He was flying a 34 billion isk jump freighter with ORE cargo expanders--and he had no permit. The results of the investigation were conclusive: Characternumber210492 was a bot-aspirant. The kill order was given.
Agents Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector Kimi, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Larry, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector AynRand, Tax Collector Yuna, Tax Collector Shardani, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector Buck, Tax Collector Fuemi, Tax Collector Rachel, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector Otto, and Kill The Innocents carried out the order and made Jita a better place.
This is the best way to deal with Citadels, I find.
Ecclesiast was a relic of the past: He thought he could autopilot a rookie ship through highsec and not lose his pod. Agent Pod-Goo RepoWoman, by contrast, is a symbol of modern highsec life under the New Order. She removed 3 billion isk worth of implants from the regressive carebear.
I'm pretty sure you don't need all of that to pilot a rookie ship. Now watch Ecclesiast complain about being a new player--or a "newly returning" player.
Incredibly, Blobert Jenerik managed to lose a pod almost twice as expensive as Ecclesiast's. Blobert's crime was even more absurd. He attempted to use a Machariel to counter-bump our Agents while they were busy preparing to kill another target. Not only did Blobert fail to save the target (a 6.5 billion isk Bowhead who died a few minutes later), the would-be Anti-Ganker managed to get himself killed in the process. Then he was podded by Agents Joshua Kusion and Katy Rozei.
Silly rebels. If you want to spend your money on something useful, start with a mining permit.
