Can someone show me where it says that code are going to target rookie systems?

Code probably won't, but some other idiot will.

of course they wont
that would require taking risks

which is the same reason they continuously ignore all the ratting BOTS out in null

Can you provide me with some evidence to show that code has ever cared about null sec?

I edited my original post to emphasize a certain aspect of what CODE claim to stand for, or rather against.
(so, ill make a similar change here too, just so your'e up to date
and not languishing back in 04 still)

I will direct you to this CCP post re their security efforts, with special attention to PAGE 17

Code sucks. They missed the maturation process completely. They're the kind of kids you wish would just go to the swimming pool and annoy the toddlers in the wading pool - while wistfully ogling the babes in bikinis thinking to themselves, "I wish I could have some."

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

while i have no ill feelings to code or indeed the competition hell killing a ton of ventures sounds like fun, you should however give a list "safe" systems such as the new player starting systems after all if people start killing new players ventures in starting systems a lot of people are gonna get banned for griefing in the name of your competition

New Order. The nerdy kids who were bullied in high school and now resort to bullying anyone who can't fight back in a video game to feel tough.

Very impressive champ. Pat yourself on the back and get yourself a cookie.

Anyone calling blowing up internet spaceships bullying needs a reality check, and denigrates victims of actual bullying. Grow the eff up.

I guess you don't get the irony of playing a spaceship based MMO and posting on an internet forum about it, while calling other people nerds. Everyone here is a nerd, bro. The only way this game could be nerdier is if our avatars were all anime and rode sparkly unicorns.

Obviously I am a nerd. I just don't need to do the online equivalent of kicking over a sandcastle made by a toddler for fun.

Go back to your carebear, mindless "PvP" lifestyle Mr. Code. If that is what you need to do for fun, by all means have at it.

As an added bonus Code Alliance is willing to give another plex to the youngest venture pilot killer during the competition!

(The Venture Pilot must not be biomassed at the end of the competition etc)

Screenshot the age of the pilot along with the killmail and employment history of the pilot to loyalanon with the title - Youngest Venture Pilot killer - XXXX (x's are pilots name)

I'll be happy to take that prize since the way you worded it I can win by making a venture alt and killing some code noob with it. I'll screenshot the killmail I get a drone hit on a ganker with.

Personally, I have disliked Ventures ever since I saw the artwork for them, which doesn't fit with the rest of EVE's ship models. Also, they were intended to be used for lowsec/nullsec ninja-mining, but have been abused by people who AFK mine in highsec instead.

Amen James Amen. Death to all the Hi-sec botters in caldari space, we are coming for you!

For this would you be able to award a prize to whoever sits on the 4/7 position in the rankings?
That is if 28 people compete, you could find 16? 40 at 70 etc

What happened to all the freighters and haulers you were gonna stop from operating?

Just saw about 10+ just in Sivala and Uedama while passing thru.

Must have all bought your wonderful permits. P

I have more respect for lame griefer war dec corps, not much, but more.

At least some of them fight when they have to.

Player created sewage content.

Somebody flush these turds.

I'm a little confused.

The venture is not much a ship for highsec. Why use a venture if you can use something bigger?

Yet the contest is calling for highsec kills of said ship that is designed for hostile space.

Bring back DEEEEP Space!

People shouldn't be flying unfitted Barges (except during rare Retriever rock/ice raids), so the Venture is a new player option for a significant amount of time.

Joffy Aulx-Gao for CSM. Fix links and OGB. Ban stabs from plexes. Fulfill karmic justice.

Anyone got a decent Venture fit?

Thinking DCU 2, Med extender, couple of Invul hardners. Maybe Neuts in high & ECM drones? Would that survive long enough for Concord to show up?

Look here.

Rezard's fit in that thread is alright. Read through all the options (and the bogus options, too).

Edit: ECM drones is an interesting question. Rezard's fit doesn't technically need the Hobs because it can tank any highsec rat. But the ECM drones being helpful are a function of what you're able to interrupt in a gank. My opinion is the Venture is better off always aligned (which you should do anyway) and warping (un-preventable by a lone Cat pilot). The Hobs let you collect some meager bounty which isn't inconsequential for a rookie pilot (which interestingly you're not).
What I came up with, assuming you want to specifically troll catalysts:


Medium Shield II
Medium F-S9 Shield
Thermic hardener II (overheated)

2x Miner II (if you want, else forget the highslots and fit a 2nd T2 medium shield for +1,000 EHP)

2x Small Kinetic shield rig
1x Core Defense Field Extender

Wh*re drones (Hob IIs) - 2x ECM drones have too small a chance to jam

Around 13,000 EHP buffer against antimatter.

EDIT: add shield links for another 5,000 or so EHP

Make space glamorous! Is EVE dying or not? Ask the EVE-O Death-o-meter!

Obviously.. since "CODE" is already established. Maybe the name should be something more like... De-CODE...

No. no. no, Rose. You're going about it all wrong! The same letters as CODE, just a little change here and there should do it:

they do the most humping bumping, ganking anyway, don't they?

No wonder people like to laugh at CODE

My question is why the second prize is better than the first hmmm...

You call it better i call it less worse Lol

Scumbag Capsuleer:
"Cries about CODE. sanctioned event that involves ganking ventures. Does nothing to save said pilots."

Perhaps a month long competition supported by you Venture sympathizers which involves:

- Most prevented ganks
- Most kills on -10 pilots in High-Sec
- Most ECM on -10 pilots

I believe Astecus tried something like this for a while but he is just one man. Perhaps you bears need less words and more actions.

I'd also like to point out that assuming a noob is ganked in a Venture, it's a way better loss than if we hit their Exhumer down the line because no one cared to inform them that we or others like us exist. I'm certain there are early game missions that provide you with 10+ Ventures. This thread full of tears is just further proof that we are the only ones who truly care about the fate of High-Sec.

High-Sec belongs to us, friends. You've already lost. At this point you're all just an audience so just sit back and enjoy. Lol

Not sure why there is all this "eve players evil, CODE bad" crap all the time. I don't think any of you have even played in other games. The smack talk from 10 year old is appalling. Eve is a long way from the "dark place" or some such crap.

CODE is *not* breaking the rules, so just get the over yourselves. It is a game, and no it doesn't reflect who you are in real life. Learn the difference between imaginary and real.

AKA the scientist.

Death and Glory!

Well fun is also good.
