Looter ALOD: A picture worth a thousand words

The Goons were practicing their art of bumping and ganking in Niarja once again.  Their artwork remains an exclusive color palette of the reds and yellows of crime and explosions. And their tools simply a cockeyed keyboard easel gripped firmly with one hairy hand, and in the other, a furiously stroked F1 brush.

The results of these brush strokes are always in the theme of Ecce Bee



But this day, a different picture was painted. A fortizar they hoped to loot turned to ashes in the Loot Fairy's hands.  In the next attempt at a loot pinata, a stroke of masterpiece was made.  The Goon Looter was caught, and his face captured in a moment of pure joy, in the oils and canvas of justice.

Machariel ALOD: Cries of the Eagle

The Advanced Tear Harvesting crime gang was once again ganking freighters along the major trade pipe in Niarja.

But things weren't going terribly well for their Machariel Bumper pilot.  There were a few escapes, then a Rhea cyno'ed out.  At that point, Tamika just seemed to stop.  Tamika just sat there, and sat there, far off the gate

It was at this time, that Team TetraFinity called for an intervention with a mass of loud explosions.






Nothing.
Tamika remained motionless, now in her pod.  Tamika just remained there, motionless, far off the gate. 

We grew concerned.  Bright lights and explosions no longer seemed to interest Tamika.

Suddenly, we heard the scream of a bird of prey.



As we watched Tamika's clone corpse twist and turn in the void, we thought we noticed a wry smile on her face.

At that point, we knew, Op Success!
We left the grid knowing we brought Tamika some space happiness.

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.



video of the medical examination


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.


Indeed.

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.

SMOGNAIRBUTT

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.

o7
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.
