Bot-aspirants wail and gnash their teeth about paying 10 million isk. But it's a lot more expensive to violate the Code; it costs a lot of money to be a Goofus these days. Just take a look at these certified Gobloks from the week of February 10th @ 00:00 EVEtime through February 16th @ 23:59 EVEtime:
Why would anyone bring a jump freighter into Uedama? Dodge Sparkles probably had no idea where he was going; he simply fired up the ol' autopilot and went AFK. He never arrived at his destination. Unless, that is, he always meant to be ganked by Agents Jackson Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Justin Kusion, Jake Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jason Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Josh Kusion, Jeffery Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Jack Kusion, Jimmy Kusion, Jessie Kusion, and Josiah Kusion.
Skylar Arkaral had nothing but contempt for the suicide gankers of highsec. She never could've imagined that she would become one herself. Yet Agent Bladewise somehow managed to persuade Skylar to get into an Orca-on-Orca fight, which ended up with Skylar CONCORDing her own ship.
We don't often see Black Ops ships featured on Kills of the Week posts, but Rukus Stylez's sinfully decadent Sin drew the notice of the local Tornado squad. It was popped by the expertly aimed artillery of Agents Narl' Amhar, Votre Dieu, Astrid Tyrfing, and Rungerd.
It seems that our bot-aspirant adversaries are running out of ways to disguise their haulers. Mite Ordinary was afraid to use a freighter or even a Deep Space Transport, so he tried out a cargo-expanded combat cruiser. He failed. Agent Votre Dieu ganked Mite's Thorax, which had fewer hitpoints than the average Retriever. Given this carebear's foolishness, I almost expected the ship to be carrying Skill Injectors or PLEX, but no--it was a bunch of random garbage.
Littoral Combat Ship autopiloted into Uedama and suffered Death by Kusion. When will these people learn? Agents Joel Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jake Kusion, Josh Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Jeffery Kusion, Jack Kusion, Jessie Kusion, Jimmy Kusion, Josiah Kusion, and Jason Kusion annihilated yet another freighter and liberated its cargo:
Someone really wanted their cap boosted, eh?
Bren'al Reming of the ironically named Catalyst LLC corporation got podded by a Catalyst flown by Agent Josiah Kusion, after the other Kusions destroyed Bren'al's 2.6 billion isk freighter. The mighty CODE. alliance uses quite a variety of ships these days, but we'll always be EVE's foremost experts when it comes to the Catalyst.
"I don't want to pay 10 million isk," says the rebellious carebear. Lose a few billion, then.
