1. 15 member corp with 3 dark blood medium towers 1 of which was entirly undefended the other 2 had 1 or 2 guns online in a C3 with static high. Nor did they online anything when we attacked them :)

2. Caught red alliance members fresh out of null setting up a minmatar small tower in our C5 static, they forgot to bring stront and for some reason the killmail glitched out and nobody got it nor did it show up on corp API -.-

3. My corp bashing customs offices with 6 carriers. We all deployed fighters and caused time dilation in our WH.

4. Russian begging in local to buy POS fuel. We give him 300m worth of POS fuel and he gives us a Archon and a Moros.

1.
We catch a tengu ratting in a C1 and he ejects when he sees that we're incoming with an onyx. Lucky for us everyone turns off their guns in time and we now have a slightly used tengu in our possession. We leave save for a scout and wait. Sure enough the guy comes back in a noctis and we ambush him. He ejects again and now we have a used noctis. I ask in local if he has any more ships to give us and he proceeds to intentionally fly 3 more ships to the site and just ejects to leave them. None of those ships were as nice as the tengu (and judging by the offline systems I think they were corp mates and not his own) but we were astonished and happy regardless.

2.
We have an unscannable (pre-nerf) crucifier alt in system for this alliance we're messing with. After a few days and about 30 attempts to probe the crucifier down they get used to it and go mining so we blow up some barges with the manticore alt we've also had in there. Their response is to place enough guards in their mining op to make it very risky for the manticore to go on another torp run. They also deploy a T2 large bubble on the HS entrance to delay any reinforcements we might consider bringing.

We warp the crucifier alt to the bubbled HS and after a long burn jump him out. All of the guards follow and sit on the HS, deep inside the bubble. The mining ships keep mining. Crucifier alt waits out his 5 minutes and jumps back in so all attention is on the WH while the manticore decloaks and starts popping barges. As most of the barges are 2-boxed the guards don't even realize what's going on till its too late and their own T2 large bubble prevents them from warping to save their remaining barge.

Bait

The plan was simple: 2Pac would go into the “hostile” W space system and act like a newb running one of their combat sites. As soon as the “enemy” pounced on him we’d all come warping to the rescue. What could possibly go wrong?

So we sat one jump out from the system that has a worm hole to the enemy’s Class 3 space, chatting about nothing in particular and occasionally announcing “new promo on Blink!” while 2Pac shoots Sleepers when our trap was sprung. A Tengu had warped on grid with him and the order was given:

“Jump, jump, jump!”

As the grid loaded we could see another enemy corp member in local, a pilot who was in and out of the high sec system repeatedly, and at about the same time 2Pac said “He’s just target painting me!?”. Seems they took our bait only to see what we’d do, and now the element of surprise was completely lost. Then, in the high sec local chat channel…

Labirat > btw .. sleeper pve .. what kinda name is that for a bait
ship? .. does that actually work?

*sigh*

Actually it does work, you just have to find the right fishing spot...

Not long ago one of my corp mates finds an offline pos in a c2 that is 5 wormholes down the chain. Crapton of modules online in the pos including a few CHAs and SMAs and some assembly arrays and some refining arrays.

We bat phone the guys playing terra (lol) and all pretty much dual box BCs into the hole and get ready for a pinata. We pop the first SMA... and a pheonix pops out. Pop the second and a bunch of t2 cruisers, battlecruisers, and an orca pops out. So by this time we are pretty hysterical as we are laughing our asses off. We pop the last two SMAs and ******* fall out of our chairs as a rorq and a chim pop out.

So I pop my alt in the orca and try to scoop my harby from my alt. It says there isnt enough room. I look in the SMA in the orca and see a hulk...

So we take tally of everything and someone opens the last can and just starts busting out laughing. The guy had over 10k blocks of minmatar fuel in his CHAs.

Unfortunately, because the pheonix, rorq, and chim came form a SMA we didnt get kill mails when we killed them. (none of the caldari cap pilots were online.)




Another fun one was when we had our tengu gang running sites in static. There was an active pos inside, but the members were offline. We were on site 2 of 15 when we noticed a nidhoggur on Dscan. So we GTFO and get scouts in. Scout at pos notices that the nid jumps into a probey loki. We order the noctis to go to site one and start tractoring the wrecks in. Not salvaging in case the loki gets lucky.

Sabre is cloaked up in site, 5k off of noctis and our fleet is waiting on other side of wormhole. Loki warps in, sabre uncloaks and pops bubble and we get our free kill. Halfway through the kill we hear. "Thanatos and Nidhoggur just warped out of pos." Two carriers warped into the site to whore on a noctis kill.

kb.hard-knocks.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=1437

Seeing as we only had a few members online and just enough to kill these two carriers, I refit my bhaal for all neuts and warp back in to site and start to go to work.

Two more carriers warp into the site as our own corp members keep trickling in from playing terra. Now we have 2 guardians, two or three armor t3s, one all neut bhaalghorn, and a few dps BCs and BSes against 4 carriers. As we all start to realize that we cant handle this fleet, batphones are lit all over our corp. 3 more bhaalghorns log in, 2 more BS and a large number of T3s log in.

We managed to kill two of the carriers, one was able to get away because we were bumping him out so we only had to worry about neuting three and the only point on him DCed. The fourth self destructed when he was in high armor.

It was only after the battle was over did we realize that these guys were fail fit and how bad they were.

If you're going to take on 3 RR Tengus and an Ishkur while dualboxing, make sure you have a Proper Plan and don't just charge on in, even if they're PVE fit.

If you do just charge in, try not to warp your BS into your own anchored bubble.

Lets see.... A newb player that obviously bought a highly skilled account, coming into our wormhole, uncloaked in a covert ops ship, sitting at the sun, scanning.... You can guess what happened to him.


And our biggest WH mess-up was when we where doing sleeper sites in our C4, with no scouts and lazy d-scan, while we had 3 open wormholes, using 2 battleships supported by a thanatos... We got dropped by a 20 man fleet of t3 cruisers, t2 cruisers, and battlecruisers shortly after... The battleships where popped fast, but the thanatos put up a brave fight for over 5 minutes...

Only heard third hand but I thought it was cute:

Active wh corp cannot believe their eyes as a few hulks enter their wh system and proceed to a grav belt and proceed to mine the roids there. So the hulks are pounced upon and tackled. Hulks are told to continue mining and they won't be destroyed.

After a period of time that I do not know, the hulks are released but paid for the ore they mined.

I lol'd hard hearing that story.

Any decent wormholer would have paid less than fair-market value for the ore, of course. Pirate

I remember running across a japanese mining fleet once. We scanned down a safe spot they had, only 400 km away from their pos, and a grab belt with a hulk and iteron and moa. We pounced on the hulk first while a bubbled warped to the safe spot and bubbled up. Hulk went down and got podded, but the iteron was too far off to point. So we bounced to the safe and the mos lands. It recieves a quick trip to high sec. We then bounce back to the iteron and its just sitting there. We end it and take a full load of ark from it.

We tried ransoming them, but the guy only spoke Japanese. Ah well, maybe next time.

In no particular order:

1. Some guy sat outside his pos in a HIC trying to catch our bombers, he brought out a harb with sebos and accidently targetted his own tower with hot weapons, he got lit up like a xmas tree. Then he decided it would be a good idea to put the harb pilot into a guardian and start repping mods, his agro timer was still on and got popped by his tower again. Then he rege-quit with his HIC bubble up and was stuck in it, indefinately giving himself agro until we killed him.


Hahahaha. This is funny. Too funny :).
