Some ships are fated to die. Our Agents are not only Agents of the Code--they're Agents of fate. Not coincidentally, all ships piloted by those who disobey the Code are also fated to die. Such as these, from the week of July 1st @ 00:00 EVEtime through July 7th @ 23:59 EVEtime...
Take a look at Udidar Cloudjumper's Ares loss. Take another look if needed. Yes, this was a loss of 42.2 billion isk, from an interceptor. Is it possible the bot-aspirants are getting dumber? Agent Eva Mavas popped the monumental Ares piñata as casually as you please.
As you can see, there's a strong connection between mining and bad decision-making.
Phobiasho Sathienne' 3.6 billion isk frigate loss is really fitting, I think--and I'm not referring to the actual fitting, or lack thereof. Agents Jacob Tancos and Lisa Tancos popped the Incursus during a week where losing 3.6 billion isk on a frigate didn't look so bad. Phobiasho is lucky that Udidar Cloudjumper died when he did.
Hey, at least he didn't lose 54 Large Skill Injectors. That's got to count for something, right?
Deep Space Transports always look suspicious these days. I wonder how many freighter pilots have switched into DSTs without purchasing a permit from the New Order? Glastco Heluene lost 6.7 billion isk to Agents Gandor Ironfist, Spazmongloid, Mongochicken, iZaEaRl, and Elvir. Maybe Glastco should trade in his Occator for a "NOST"? (That's a New Order Space Transport, in case you were wondering.)
Sorry, Alex Indy, but highsec still belongs to those who enforce the Code. That includes Jita and its surrounding systems--and all of the 1.0 security ones. Alex lost a 29.8 billion isk ship that had the ability to teleport to safety. Maybe he thought he was protected from ganks by the rule against "rookie griefing"?

We've recently noticed a number of blingy Hulks making a nuisance of themselves in New Order territory. Late last week, Japan best and Indead were both piloting 1.2 billion isk Hulks until they were simultaneously ganked by Agents Nam Plau, Votre Dieu, Narl' Amhar, and Lovchi. More fine choreography from highsec's elite PvP'ers.
Rohk Etmann lost a 4 billion isk pod to Agent Jacob Tancos because he chose to go AFK and autopilot, rather than follow the Code. Outrageously, Rohk did this in a Reaper. It appears that if you're vigilant enough, you can still catch a blingy pod in a rookie ship.
Shattered crystals. I wonder how good that Reaper's shield tank was?
