Bumper ALOD: The gist of heglis

Uedama was awash in criminals recently, but something was different.

Lorwynn Falconwind had returned from an extended excursion into Jovian space, to FC a fleet of eager lads who were seeking their own adventure.

It just so happened, they wanted to know what was inside heglis.  They wanted to know what drove him to bump freighters for CODE.

Aside from the MWD, there just really wasn't much substance to be found inside heglis. He was just another hollow shell, just another meat puppet for crime.

Dr Boriz inserts the probe

The team remains undeterred, and will continue to dissect heglis, repeatedly if necessary, until the mystery is solved.

Many thanks to: 
  • Lorwynn Falconwind for leading the choir of death.
  • Eskati Dethahal for the mighty Final Blow
  • Naitch for the foresight to fly an Oracle
  • and to Ludros Sarain, Boriz Nakrar, Yittri Sazas and Javer Mieyli for adding to the chorus of explosions.

Too sexy for this ship

sexyboy6969 of R I O T has been running the Suspect Bait scam in Uedama on Sivala gate, with off-grid Augorors waiting.

He's ensared quite a few people with this trap.

Cochise Chiricahua,  Eskati Dethahal,  msagro artemist, myself and friends fleeted up to try this challenge.

Mistakes were made, and our first attempt failed, though our ammo did take a good bite out of the  hull of his Scythe Fleet Issue, before his 3 companion Augorors saved him.

At this point, sexyboy6969 was feeling quite smug in local.

[ 2018.08.12 00:30:49 ] Thomas en Chasteaux > gf
[ 2018.08.12 00:31:12 ] Hazen Koraka > hmm these logis are annoying lol
[ 2018.08.12 00:38:43 ] sexyboy6969 > lol
[ 2018.08.12 00:43:03 ] sexyboy6969 > NO MORE?
[ 2018.08.12 00:43:55 ] Hazen Koraka > you too sexy for us lol
[ 2018.08.12 00:44:08 ] sexyboy6969 > want me to get a frigate?

After his close call with us, he switched to a battleship, and then there were 4 Augorors on DScan.

But we soon got a second chance, as we weren't the only ones hunting the R I O T scam artist.

Although the KM clearly says 14 vs 1, his dizzying loss seemed to blur his vision.
And he kept saying it was 50 vs 1 in local.

[ 2018.08.12 00:49:37 ] Thomas en Chasteaux > you can get a frigate now
[ 2018.08.12 00:50:51 ] Namrax > Kill: sexyboy6969 (Armageddon) EAT DICK WARDEC FUCCBOIS
[ 2018.08.12 00:50:56 ] sexyboy6969 > haha
[ 2018.08.12 00:50:59 ] Euthymius Sagetus Remak > highsec bottom feeders
[ 2018.08.12 00:51:03 ] sexyboy6969 > 50 vs 1
[ 2018.08.12 00:51:06 ] sexyboy6969 > hahah
[ 2018.08.12 00:51:09 ] sexyboy6969 > love it
[ 2018.08.12 00:51:12 ] sexyboy6969 > easy

When you take on a Suspect Scam Artist, always know that you may lose your ship, and they may have more support than you counted on. But always look for the right moment, and the right opportunity, to hold the fight on your own terms.

Oh. And one more thing.  There is no such thing as 'Overkill' in EVE.  :)
Always bring more than you need.

Special Teams Tackle

Many are familiar with the CODE's. Kusion Special Teams gank clan, which operates out of the Uedama system.

And their looter, Daxter Alabel, might be a familiar name.

But fewer still are familiar with the fit of his elusive Bustard looter.

[17:39:47] Adrian Vexier > Oooohhh. Look a the little ganker-looter:  Kill: Daxter Alabel (Bustard)
[17:39:59] Adrian Vexier > Thank you for tacking him,  Molly Maricadie !

[17:55:33] Adrian Vexier > Hey, whoever took the loot from the  Kill: Daxter Alabel (Bustard) . I would really appreciate a  Wrecked Armor Nanobot or a  Malfunctioning Power Cores. If you are polite enough, of course.

WAR ALOD: Gud Fights, Gud Fleets

The CODE alliance has grown bolder, and deployed an Astrahus and Fortizar in the Uedama system.

Several brave souls decided they would accept the challenge.

The fleet doctrine was decided upon, based on test runs at the CODE Fortizar.  As expected, CODE rallied multiple gank fleets of Tornados and Catalysts after the Fortizar shields were taken down.

The Astrahus was then reinforced.

This time, it was Machariels and a Coercer gank fleet.  The Coercer fleet would tether, untether, shoot then warp out, in the hopes of not losing any ships.

A suspect Hyperion battleship played peek-a-boo, popping in and out of the Astrahus, but eventually it strayed too far from safety.

The coercers too played similar games, but never quite found a good warp in to do too much damage.  As the Astrahus hull melted, a fleet of CODE Bhaalgorns landed on grid.  But they did not engage, considering the expensive losses that would incur, given the much cheaper Vexor-Osprey Fleet Doctrine.

In the end, the CODE defense fleets left, and explosions ensued.

A hearty well done, and well played, to the Astral Alliance and TetraFinity and all the support pilots who showed CODE this day what true PVP and Fleet Battles look like.

Looter ALOD: Occator Junkyard

Sasha FireWall is a scout and looter for the wardec corp and part-time ganker clan Hell House of the RIOT Alliance.

What normally would have been an easy gank-n-loot operation, didn't turn out to be so easy.

Ganks often leave trash and wrecks on the gates, for scavengers to clean up.
But on that day, the Militia made sure the Occator looter was taken to the recycle bin.

There Was An Attempt: Ice Bot Wars

One of the precepts of the Clowns Of Deep Entropy is their eternal war on "bots" and "bot aspirants".  As many know, their space memes of "always winning" never passed the Fedo test.  As you can see in the attached video, even the war on the true bots of EVE... they inspire more laughter, than fear.

The annual Goon Spring Rage event was heralded in the skies above Jita 4-4 and in Perimeter as "MOONPIRE"

But it quickly turned into something else.

The Goon's Burn Jita 2018 began as usual, but then the meme horns of NC\PL were sounded, and a reckoning began.

After losing 3 Machariels to NC\PL the Goons switched to Bumper Typhoons.
But it was not without it's own admission of shame.

But soon, the 'Phoon Shame was matched with real losses as well.

While the freighter losses were unfortunate, the AG community and Militia fought and repped whenever and wherever we could.

Most freighter victims were untanked and oblivious to the Goon event, and were lost.
But we helped guide and save several freighters.

Two of them stand out for me.

One was a Fenrir.

And the other was a spectacular failure by the Goons, as a tank hardened Orca overheated his defenses, while 15 of us repped till our capacitors burst.  He survived, and lived to proclaim it in the channels.

It was this miner's first foray into PvP.  And he won.

He had some help. But as this was his first battle against the Goons, we were content to let him bask in all the glory.

Until next time we meet on the grid.

Fly Fearless.

The Goon Leader Mittani makes the case against CODE

The Goon Leader recently had a Fireside Chat in which he attacks anyone who reports possible Goon Botters.

Listen in, and hear the Mittani build the definitive case against the CODE Alliance itself.

"But some self-righteous douchebag decided to report everybody that he thought was multi-boxing..."

"And just like some uppity f*king church lady.. because he felt that he knew best, and he felt that he could actually just look at a group of people doing something and judge individually as IF THEY KNEW who was botting and who was multi-boxing and who was Good and who was Bad.  That person is a piece of sh*t goon f*ker traitor, because YOU DO NOT KNOW what the other person is doing on the other side of the client. YOU DO NOT KNOW whether they are using IS Boxer correctly or whether they are actually violating the EULA. YOU DO NOT KNOW if the person who is mining in the belt with you or bratting [sic] in a belt near you or in an anomaly YOU DON"T KNOW whether they're a bot or not."

"DON'T be a self-righteous piece of sh*t. DON'T be that guy."

"YOU are not the Judge, Jury and Executioner. YOU do not get to decide what other people .. are doing or not doing because you have no idea what's going on.."

Ursus Invisibilis

On January, 20,2018 CEO Bloody Bear of Bloody Claw Security was on patrol in the Brapelille system.  As he camped the system protecting a miner, the CODE. ganker Guybertini entered the ore belt where Bear and the Miner were located.

Guybertini tried to gank the Retriever.  However, he didn't quite have time to pull the trigger. Bloody Bear open fired, and destroyed the catalyst in one shot.  The miner was saved.

New Eden should be encouraged that Bloody Bear and other like minded capsuleers are roaming, cloaked and on the prowl, hunting gankers.

The fight for the liberty and freedom of High Sec is eternal.  And for capsuleers filled with a fighting spirit like Bloody Bear, this fight has only just begun.

To all the criminals of New Eden, beware the Ursus Invisibilis.

Machariel ALOD: Food and Drink Permit

CODE Permit Enforcer was bumping an Obelisk in Niarja on the Madirmilire gate for a long time. The Love ganker clan was spotted here and there, chasing after small targets. But no freighter gank fleet was showing up.

Yet the bumping continued.

Eventually, Enforcer got hungry.

But lacking a permit for snacks, there was no way out of the situation. Release the freighter hostage and refuel, or continue to bump the freighter "on empty"? Tough decisions had to be made.

We had a solution.

Our solution was a WIN-WIN for everyone.  

The freighter escaped. And Food and Drink was finally served.
Oh, and the Machariel gank was quite possibly live streamed on Globby's Twitch channel.
Tears of Joy were spread far and wide across our galaxy.

Most of our fleet weren't watching the feed at the time, as the music selection was ... suspect.

Special thanks to the Tea and Toast crew for helping a fellow capsuleer in a time of need.

Piekura Ice Bears

Piekura has been the location of much activity by a small criminal corporation HC - BLUEberryPIE. Bloody Bear decided to patrol the area and see what could be done.  He found an Ice belt, and decided to wait.

There was a Retriever in the ice, and it wasn't long before Sottie StuartClan arrived, looking to commit yet another easy crime.

What he didn't expect were the Bears lurking in the Ice, looking for easy prey.

and this one, had a juicy pod center.

The Retty was saved, as the Ice Bear of Piekura swallowed Sottie whole in one clean bite, implants and all.  We're not sure if Sottie was conscious long enough in Piekura to realize what happened.  Ice Bear attacks are known to come out of nowhere.

Navigating New Eden: Your compass

As capsuleers, we all enter our pods, and slip into our favorite ships. 

But that which drives us to do so, is each unique and different.

We all are guided by some internal compass, some burning desire and morality, or lack thereof.

How we fly, and who we fly with, says a great deal about our true natures, our true selves.

And the mark we leave on this galaxy, will be etched by the strength of our character, and the brightness of our guiding lights.

In the end, we will not be measured by the wealth we hoarded, nor the ships we exploded.

We will be judged by how we changed this universe, what we gave back, the good and great causes to which we dedicated ourselves.

We will be remembered how we treated the least and weakest amongst us, and the times we stopped and lent a hand to those in great need.

And we will be remembered by how straight and true we flew.

Fly Safe
Fly True
Fly Fearless

Looter ALOD: Dominated Dax

Uedama is the location of many a Kusion Incursion - a crime wave committed by a clan of Kusion clones.

One of the Kusion looters and scouts is Daxter Alabel.

CODE had ganked a Charon earlier, and Daxter waited for his opportunity to loot the wreck.

The Domination Inertial Stabilizers, while expensive, didn't work out so well.

Tales from the Grid: Thunder and Explosions

On the fourth of January, Evil Thunder of the Bloody Claw Security was providing security to the miners in Kamio's Ice Belt.

Monitoring the security situation, CEO Bloody Bear was watching a ganker's live stream and decided to record an incoming CODE failure.

The two CODE gankers Jakk en Jala and Balthatar warped to their scout in the ice, and started firing at a Retriever.  Thunder soon sent the two gankers packing in their pods, as they stared in disbelief.

As you can see in the kill mails, CONCORD was too slow to show up, and were not needed.

Miners all across New Eden can see if we all unite and fight, we can WIN and stop ganks on miners and haulers.

Here is the segment of the ganker's Live Stream, and you can watch him and his reaction, as CODE fails... "Always" ... to break the indomitable fighting spirit of capsuleers.

Machariel ALOD: Turf Wars

Often times, the bumper machariels are run by CODE or Goon affiliated pilots, and they largely aid and assist one another.  In rare instances, you find a different flavor of crime gang who is not so aligned.

Tamika Rackner, so told, is a member of Northern Coalition. Who has been targeting Goon affiliated freighters around Niarja.

In return, the Goons have been ninja looting Rackner's kills, over 6 billion ISK to date, and ganking Rackner's Machariels.

and again

with Pod

There was one gank attempt on Rackner that the HSM helped prevent, though it was out of some confusion, as we did not understand why a Goon gank fleet was shooting a Machariel bumper.  It's times like those where it's difficult to choose who to cheer for, other than CONCORD and Explosions.

The Goon Fizzleblade gang made this special request to highlight the Turf Wars of Niarja.  So a shout-out and tip of the hat to them for fighting crime, in their own, if only temporary, way.

Looter ALOD: Shooting Stars

The first day of the New Year saw the usual Kusion Criminal Incursion in Uedama.  We had fleeted up and were chasing Kusion around, playing the usual Cat and Mouse games of Hunter and Hunted.

It was at the end of the Incursion, after a random traveling cruiser was ganked that didn't drop much, that we witnessed another sign, perhaps an omen of things to come.

We had reshipped to catch and counter looters, when we were astounded by the site of a shooting star.

A Scorpion Navy Issue was flashing yellow suspect, landing on the Juunigaishi gate in Uedama. We had no idea where this strange interstellar object had come from, nor did we know where it was going.

But in such situations there is little time to think. One can only gaze in awe and wonder at such shining beacons, then rush and jump the gate.

This shooting star streaked across our night sky and exploded in celebration of the new year.  And we were thankful that BOB had bestowed upon us this sign of good tidings and blessings.

Certainly, this will be a very good year.

Happy New Year to All!
