Operation Scoutaggedon - Tear Jerkers

Operation Scoutaggedon

Operation Scoutaggedon has been ongoing for couple weeks.

Born from an idea by SpecOp member Ryan Ahashion.  10 criminal scouts were neutralized in one 24 hour period. In total, 65 criminal scouts have discovered High Sec is no longer safe for them.  Ryan's total number of scout kills is now at 31, and is leading in applying Space Justice and disrupting criminal operations.

Naturally, this is causing the criminal underworld an enormous amount distress and consternation, as their doctrine depends on AFK fail-fit stationary frigates.

Sadly, one ganker troll has developed an extreme case of butt-hurt, and has developed a psychotic fear of any further harm to his posterior.

After locking and barricading his captain's quarters, we can safely assume he has armed himself, much like his fearful cult leader, as seen here in the Kino station.

Here is the chat log of the ganker troll in the AG channel -
Which was promptly followed up by more tears to the primary moderator and owner of the AG Channels.


[07:10:16] Astecus > o/
[07:10:17] Ryan YouSoBad > why did you ban me

[07:12:05] Ryan YouSoBad > are you there
[07:12:12] Ryan YouSoBad > or are you afk chatting
[07:12:24] Ryan YouSoBad > i know anti-ganking embraces the afk lifestyle so i would understand
[07:12:33] Astecus > Ganking scouts or bumpers is an acceptable AG behavior to me
[07:13:12] Ryan YouSoBad > i was just minding my own business in high security space
[07:13:21] Ryan YouSoBad > and along came ryan ahashion and ATTACKED me
[07:13:27] Ryan YouSoBad > seems p ridiculous to me
[07:13:38] Ryan YouSoBad > you guys dont seem anti-ganking at all
[07:13:51] Astecus > WHich character of yours did he attack?
[07:14:15] Ryan YouSoBad > oh no wyoure trying to steal my identity?
[07:14:29] Ryan YouSoBad > thats a pretty nasty follow up to antiganking's real life threats
[07:14:44] Astecus > No, I'm trying to look into the validity of your claim
[07:14:54] Ryan YouSoBad > my claim is valid, problem solved
[07:15:02] Ryan YouSoBad > sure am glad i could clear that up
[07:15:30] Ryan YouSoBad > you guys seem real bad

Criminal Scout ALOD - The Sandman Cometh

The HSM Black Ops team were activated Sunday night to hunt down Machariels on the major space lanes.  AG Intel had indicated a criminal scout was active and on grid.  1Lt Aldo Raine and his team deployed to the region on a neutralization mission.

Flying through Kaaputenen, the team confirmed a visual on Oprah Winfrey Show's shuttle sitting 28 km off gate.   Oprah is a known Macherial bumper and freighter looter.  The team quickly took her down.

Once the timers completed, the search for the original criminal scout continued. By that time, the scout had docked up in Jita.

Returning to base, the team once again gained a visual on Oprah Winfrey Show, but this time, her capsule, still sitting 28km off gate,  Forty minutes had passed since the last operation.  Clearly, Oprah was napping on the job.   A Black Op Thrasher put an end to her loitering and criminal scouting.

Space Justice can take many forms.  And on this night, Justice came to Oprah, as she slept and dreamt of her next crime.

Pray thee Bob my soul to keep and if my clone dies before I wake pray thee Bob my ISK to take

Looter ALOD - MJU Blues

The Niarja system was once again under siege by criminal elements of New Eden.

Another freighter had gone down, and the criminally-aligned looter - Oprah Winfrey Show - set about her dark task to loot the wreck.

A Mobile Micro Jump Unit was deployed, and Oprah aligned and jumped but missed scooping the loot, as a militia Curse was bumping her Charon out of reach of the wreck.

Oprah returned once more, and this time scooped the loot, and went suspect.

But the Militia was locked and loaded, and Justice fell upon Oprah like a loot fairy upon a cargo hold of Plex.

Bumper ALOD - Safety Dance

In Madirmilire, criminally-aligned Phryxis was flying a macherial, and had begun bumping an Obelisk, while a goon gank fleet sat in wait in Kamio.

The HSM arrived on scene, and tried to assist the distressed freighter.

Meanwhile, a second group arrived.  1Lt Aldo Raine flying a Talos for The Inglourious Bastards arrived with  his wingman - The Protector Auditore.  They had come bearing gifts for Phyrxis - antimatter wrapped in the finest titanium - just like the wise men of ancient times.

First,  1Lt Aldo Raine attacked Phryxis and went criminal.

The Protector Auditore, giving thanks to Bob, then closed in and readied his weapons.

Then....  Phryxis went criminal.

Wait. What?

Kill: Phryxis (Machariel) 

Forgot something important

Phyrxis had forgotten to follow proper safety protocols and procedures.
It was a costly oversight.  But Phyrxis also forgot something much more important.

Justice had come to Madirmilire, because Justice never forgets.

  • [03:50:37] EVE System > Channel changed to Local : Madirmilire
