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!
