A few players has been shouting us to take notice on the ganking activity for the Caldari Ice pockets in High-Sec.

The “Eat the Minmatar” blog mentions the operation explicitly:

“No point in mentioning these Catalysts, I thought. Poor bastard will see them soon enough.”

You can read the whole call for ganks in the blog.

What really strikes me is the fact that the Interdiction is actually on-going. So far GoonWaffe have ganked over +600 Exhumers since the start of February, mostly Mackinaws around The Forge Region by GoonSwarm Federation members.

Eve-Kill Stats

So far Eve-Markets present a small spike in nitrogen isotopes prices:

No, I haven’t stocked up on Ice yet; a decision I might regret. We’ll keep an eye on this one.

      Wuos, So many ice miners.

      So many botter miners.

        The best excuse i have heard so far to dispute that they were a bot was:

        botter: "my wife mines for me while I'm at work"

        batdude: "So you wife sat for 18 hours trying to mine in a pod"

        botter: "She didn't know she was in a pod"

        ok good sir….

    Actually its not an interdictions. Its just one corp – Bat Country who decided to celebrate democracy and start of election season by sacrificing miners.
    can check their campaign stats here : http://kb.batcountry-eve.org/index.php/cc_detail/

    And its not limited to caldari. But you are free to put tinfoil hats and stock up caldari ice.

        Its easy, its fun, its profitable. Corps and alliances need these kind of events to keep their members excited and addicted to this game. I assume they just needed excuse to go on rampage again :)

            This is really entertaining, because no one really did a big announcement about it. Mittens didn't say "hey go kill miners". The corp got together and decided that they loved killing miners so much that they would do it themselves. Compare it to Goonswarm Shrugged numbers and this is really impressive.

      Think about anyone who runs a cald CT? Complex reactor? Don't be ignorant; caldari ice will affect T2 prices much much more than I think you realize.

    Yawn another bunch of bullies who don't like anyone who doesn't play eve the way they play eve. If Bat were serious about stopping bots, they'd announce their presence in the system and give the non-bot miners a chance to warp out. They claim to have a 'refund' scheme if you're not a botter and get shot, but how genuine is it?
    It's the one thing that does make me wonder why I still play eve, the bigotry that the PvPers have when a lot of them have industrial alts to make isk so they continue PvPing.
    Yeah I'm a carebear, I always will be a carebear, if I can't do my industry then I'll quit the game, if you want to PvP then go roaming through low-sec or nullsec, declare wars etc, grow a set of bollocks instead of killing defenceless easy targets.
    Yes this is a whine, and to be honest I don''t give a fuck, carebears know that botters have ruined eve's industrial side, but that's not our fault, it's CCP's for not stopping them, but they don't give a shit because hey it's all good, they pay subscriptions so we're not going to stop them doing it.

      It's nothing to do with making people play the game any particular way, they just like shooting miners. You got a problem with that? Shout Bat Country play the game your way instead?

  13. AAA Whos that

    TBH I don't mind the ganks and I don't mind that "Bullies" as was worded by a bear earlier do their thing. Market manipulation is cool too. My issue is that a T2 hull should actually have a buffer. It should be expensive to gank stuff, a 200 million isk ship should not be instapooped by a 3 million isk dessie.

    More shooting is a good thing…. stuff that defies the laws of common sense like size/weight ratios, etc…. needs to be fixed.

      What do you think the cost differential was between a Japanese Zero + payload and a U.S. Destroyer or Aircraft Carrier?

        Not to mention a bullet being able to kill an expensively-trained soldier. A talented archer being able to put a cheap arrow through the eye slits of the heavily armored knight.

        History shows us that expensive defenses fall to cheap weapons.

    Killing botters is great but I almost feel bad for the non-botters getting their shit handed to them with no way to defend themselves. High sec is worse for a miner than 0.0 lol

    Eve is full of assholes. Who plays a game just to ruin my time off? Gankers are stuck in 9-year-old mindsets and obviously their balls never dropped.
