It has been another very bad week for the bot-aspirants; their refusal to obey the Code cost them hundreds of billions of isk. The carebears may view the loss of their isk as a tragedy. But if they fail to learn to comply with the Code, much worse things await them in the future. For now, let us reflect upon their losses from the week of March 15th @ 00:00 EVEtime through March 21st @ 23:59 EVEtime...
Titanus Dwarvum had no excuse for going to Jita in a jump freighter with ORE cargo expanders. Surely he didn't forget that Jita's jump freighters have been getting slaughtered by the Tax Collector family? Perhaps he did forget, though--he couldn't even remember to remain at his keyboard. Agents Tax Collector Richard, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector BokChoy, Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector Stroheim, Taxman Daniel, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Larry, Tax Collector Yuna, Tax Collector Alison, Tax Collector AynRand, Tax Collector Kimi, Tax Collector Shardani, Tax Collector Fuemi, Tax Collector Max, Tax Collector Buck, Dr Hattrick, and Mining Lord 1999 brought in a fleet of Taloses to remind him.
Ah, the humble Bowhead. CSTS1 knew he needed to tank up as much as possible before entering the Uedama system. Yet for all his hitpoints, he couldn't bring himself to supply his ship with the one thing it really needed (aside from a permit, of course): an attentive pilot! He went AFK instead. Agents Jeffery Kusion, Justin Kusion, Joel Kusion, Jake Kusion, Jack Kusion, Jayden Kusion, Jayson Kusion, Jason Kusion, Jacob Kusion, Jeremy Kusion, Jeremiah Kusion, Josh Kusion, Jonas Kusion, Johnathan Kusion, Joshua Kusion, Joseph Kusion, Jessie Kusion, Jimmy Kusion, Jackson Kusion, Tax Collector Coronalmao, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector NeverLoses, Tax Collector NeverLoses, Tax Collector IsNumber1, Tax Collector ImMegaRich, Tax Collector hahaYourebad, Tax Collector GetWrecked, Tax Collector Herbert, Darth VaIdemar, Tax Collector DadPlsNo, Tax Collector YoureTrash, Tax Collector GoPlayWoWkid, Tax Collector Kelly, Sasha Shi, and Ding Dong MingMong combined the might of the Kusions and the Tax Collectors. So much for all those hitpoints.
Freighters are big, lumbering targets. Daysi LI opted for speed and stealth, preferring a blockade runner for his hauling jobs. It's possible that Daysi successfully smuggled his goods through lowsec. What we know for certain is that he relaxed when he came to highsec. He allowed Agents Lovin Jr and FleetJump Jump to blap him--despite being under an active wardec.
I wonder how long it took him to collect all that stuff?
Shara Kantome's Loki was the very picture of failure. Hers was a ship simply waiting for an excuse to die. Agents Luna Nightblood, Underpaid Ship Mechanic, and Ralliana provided the excuse and happily scooped a billion isk in the process.
Many freighters and jump freighters died in highsec this week. And our Agents didn't forget about their pods. Just ask Reortsed. After he lost his 10 billion isk Bowhead, Reortsed's pod was smartbombed by Agent Josiah Kusion. The Kusions are very thorough, you know.
Reortsed had 4.6 billion isk worth of implants, despite using his character to move stuff around while AFK. No more!
Normally we save the pod for last, but not this time. No, this week's a little different. For there was another jump freighter kill that was especially notable.
Argo Otsolen shamed himself by bringing a 64 billion isk jump freighter into Jita. With ORE cargo expanders. While AFK. With the Tax Collectors in system.
Without a mining permit.
Agents Tax Collector KarlMarx, Tax Collector BokChoy, Pod Destroyer Molly, Tax Collector Richard, Tax Collector Kittens, Tax Collector HongMei, Tax Collector Aruka, Tax Collector Max, Taxman Daniel, Tax Collector AynRand, Tax Collector Yuna, Tax Collector Larry, Tax Collector Stroheim, Tax Collector Kimi, Tax Collector Hill, Tax Collector Rachel, Tax Collector Fuemi, Tax Collector Shardani, Tax Collector Otto, Tax Collector Alison, Australian Excellence, Tax Collector Buck, Dr Hattrick, and Mining Lord 1999 dropped nearly two dozen Taloses on this target, each piloted by a ganker empowered by the Code and wearing a pair of sunglasses.
Argo's ship dropped 21 billion isk worth of loot intact; another 43 billion isk was destroyed. The carebear's collection of blingy Harvester drones did not survive. Carebears, never forget what happened to Argo Otsolen--it could happen to you.
