It was a rough week to be a bot-aspirant in highsec. There were a number of people violating the Code--despite knowing what would happen to them--and, I must say, they found themselves punished quite severely. From the week of July 29th @ 00:00 EVEtime through August 4th @ 23:59 EVEtime:
I've said a lot about the futility of freighter pilots switching to Deep Space Transports to conduct their illegal activities. Beekillrz wasn't listening. His Bustard was popped in the heart of 1.0 security space by Agents erobb, PogChampion, Shy Elf Trap, patyooki, James BIG BONED, and Daniel Chanline, who took to their Tornadoes and did highsec proud.
Nothing surprises me anymore, but this was really dumb.
Matji bought a Skiff instead of a mining permit--exactly as Anti-Ganking would have advised. As usually happens, the Skiff pilot became overconfident. And with overconfidence comes decadence: She splurged on a pair of ORE Ice Harvesters, among other things. Yet Matji was easily dispatched by a squad of Catalyst pilots: Agents Noll Kion, Lisa Tears, Minx Mattel, Saskia Arnoux, Lewak, and Ho Lee Fuk. Time to get that mining permit, I think.
For some reason, only the corporation name appeared on this killmail. Professional Russians corp's unnamed pilot brought a tanked-up freighter into Niarja. Though Niarja is a common ganking system, the pilot was at least able to take comfort in the fact that it wasn't Uedama, where the Kusion family lives. As luck would have it, the Kusions were having a picnic in Niarja at that very moment. And they brought 19 Taloses. Agents Joel Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Josh Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Josiah Kusion, Jessie Kusion, Jimmy Kusion, Jeffery Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Jack Kusion, Jason Kusion, and their adopted son brainlet did the family proud and eliminated the 20.6 billion isk freighter.
In case you hadn't heard, the Marshal is a very expensive Black Ops ship. Halt Kitinger's Marshal was his pride and joy--though you wouldn't necessarily guess that by looking at the ship's fittings. Halt snuck his ship into Uedama. As luck would have it, the Kusions weren't having a picnic in Niarja at that moment, which meant they were in Uedama and ready to rumble. Agents Jackson Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Jack Kusion, Josh Kusion, Jeffery Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jason Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, and Joseph Kusion enforced the Code and destroyed the Marshal.
Equipment Holding Corporation learned the terrifying truth behind the mighty CODE. alliance's wardecs: They're no joke. A group of Bhaalgorn-wielding Agents took down the corp's 6.6 billion isk Engineering Complex. Agents Sigrid Tystnad, Rainbow Cake, Blazing Pancake, Delicate Feminine Flower, Ice is Nice, Love Humps, Discofitta, Chocolate Rainbow Cake, Kissemurra, and Jathrine have proven to be quite effective with Bhaalgorns. Could a return to the Alliance Tournament be in CODE.'s future?
Good Coffee of the inappropriately named No Laws Apply corporation was given a lesson in the law of highsec. After his 2.8 billion isk freighter was mowed down, Agent holdmybeer zapped Good Coffee's 3.1 billion isk pod with smartbombs.
"No Laws Apply"? That's some High-grade nonsense. The CODE always applies. Always!
