Kills of the Week

Sigh. It seems like every week is "Skill Point Week" these days. Friends, these so-called "skill points" will get you no closer to victory in EVE. For that, you're gonna need the Code. And the truth is, every week is Code Week. Always!

You know things are going badly when you've lost 4.2 billion isk before you count the five Abyssal mods on your ship (which zKillboard does not value). That's what happened to Furaibou Ikkala after he autopiloted his way toward Niarja. Agents Rungerd, Votre Dieu, Astrid Tyrfing, and Narl' Amhar executed him. I'm sure you'll agree that the punishment fit the crime.

At the end of last week, Dark Angelete parked her freighter in the Hampinen system and went AFK. This proved to be a fatal mistake, as Hampinen is located in New Order territory. So her ship attracted a gank fleet consisting of Agents Selenia Phat'kola, Apex142, space gator, LTiger007, Commander McBrag, LingWai II, Elos Haliat, Bimbler, Joshua Darkmoor, Ginger 198723 Asanari, Aaaarrgg, Troop101, djNME, Pod-Goo RepoWoman, DoesPlenty, and Pod-Goo Repairman. You don't need to go to a stargate to get your freighter killed; our Agents deliver!

Also late last week, Thadek Dash lost his 5.8 billion isk Bowhead. What went wrong? Well, the carebear did manage to tank up his ship: His mids, lows, and even rigs all made use of the Bowhead's ability to inflate its hitpoints and resistances. Yet this carebear made some serious mistakes, too. For one, he did not get a mining permit and obey the Code. For another, he went to Uedama when the Kusions were in town. Agents Justin Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Josh Kusion, Jimmy Kusion, Jack Kusion, Josiah Kusion, Jeffery Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Jessie Kusion, Jason Kusion, and Caution AsianDrivers Ahead rolled up their sleeves and went to work on the Bowhead's supposedly impervious defenses.

Capacitor tanking is still a thing, it seems. And so are ORE Strip Miners, despite being good for nothing but attracting gankers. Sexy Satan was busy mining a 0.9 security system until Agents Pod-Goo RepoWoman and Aaaarrgg showed up and taught him what Code enforcers think of ORE contraband.

Another one! Kryak Hakomairos of the ISBE Mining and Mayhem corp got a little less mining time than he bargained for--and a whole lot more mayhem. Agents Pyro Regyri, Aiko Danuja, Alleil Pollard, Shambort, and Lewak tracked him down and put his 751 million isk mining ship to death.

Remember Sexy Satan? His time in the crosshairs wasn't done when he lost his decadent Mackinaw. For he was ganked by a group of Agents who can sniff out a blingy pod from a dozen jumps away. Once the Mackinaw shell was removed, Agent Pod-Goo Repoman went in for the kill.

As a result, 3.4 billion isk was vaporized. Interestingly, Sexy Satan's implants only consisted of hardwirings; the five "main" implant slots were all left empty. That might be a first for a Pod of the Week. What a unique Goofus!


  1. Hear hear on the skill point weeks. They've been handing out SP like candy for ages. One day they may remove passive training entirely. And attribute mappings. Because that could be construed as unfriendly to casual gamers. And instead of individual skills, which require careful planning, they might simplify it into familiar SP thresholds. Then a, say, level 20 pilot would be able to fly all T2 cruisers, for example.

    1. Well that's not all

    2. Good Saviour! They changed the autopiloting distance. For shame.

    3. _(´ཀ`」 ∠)_

  2. With all the skill point weeks, carebears no longer need the skill implants.

  3. Is CCP Falcon making it so that any skiff pilot has the ability to board a titan?

    Falcon, please do something constructive and make a CODE edition catalyst skin.

    You are failing as bad as ag.

  4. Why don't they just make it so autopilot automatically transports you without any delay at all? They can just change the name to "teleport" and the carebears will love it (until they go AFK and log into some other MMO with anime graphics).
