I got drunk once and gave all my isk to some random local beggar.

The mystery was that he gave it all back even tho I didn't want it back. Shocked

Stupidity should be a bannable offense.

Fighting back is more fun than not.

You know, like those noobships and shuttles that are floating around highsec gates because the owner ejected from them? Like that, but a pod.

How it got there, I have no clue. There was a big laggy (that was before TiDi) fleet battle in that system a day before, so maybe it had something to do with that.

I was able to board the pod. My original pod disappeared and I was piloting the new pod. Nothing changed about my skills or implants.




Couple years ago A corpie had a CCP meltdown as she undocked to brawl with some wartargets - nothing would respond, ship blew, podded... after the podding the intact pod just sat there in the system of Mies until downtime -It had the board ship option, but wouldn't actually let anyone board.

of course their logs showed nothing...

I jumped into a WT gatecamp in highsec in a dual-plated proteus. The mystery of how they failed to lock and tackle me before I warped remains to this day.

one time i double-tapped my cloak button in a helios as I entered system in a bubble with an active camp. maybe the guys camping were shooting something else, but I managed to re-cloak after a very long 2 seconds without getting killed.

They probably fell asleep while waiting for you to get there.

My brother played this game for a time and started about a week after I did back then (over seven years ago). The game was much more brutal to new players since practically nothing was spelled out, much less handed out. So both of us tinkered around, doing missions and whatnot when he logged in one day to find his wallet one billion ISK richer a few hours ago from previously logging out back then! We both thought perhaps it was a donation to the wrong person, but when we checked, that donator never existed in game...

So there's a thing that's been bothering me for a year:

Sometime ago I logged into Eve and was searching through some of my personal assets. That's when I noticed an entry I'd never seen before. It was an Iteron Mark V - named the Hugo Von Goremaster! - that was just hanging out in a system I had nothing else in that at the time I'd never visited. I went to pick it up and realized when I got there that I didn't have the skill to fly it, nor the skill for the fairly standard fittings and rigs that emphasized cargo space. My contract history was clean of any records for such a thing nor had I had it traded to me (evidenced by having never been in the system).

Yet there it was.

And there it has sit ever since it came into my possession. With nothing in its cargo hold but slowly collecting space dust, it has sat in Tarta and bothered me in concept and in clutter. I can't for the life of me explain how I got it.


Maybe a corp "delivered" it to you?

A corpmae of mine had a ship blown up inside a POS shield by a stealth bomber. The bomber uncloaked outside the buble, fired a bomb and warped off, and somehow the explosion destroyed a ship inside the forcefield. Now, I'm not quite sure how force fields and bombs are supposed to interract, but I'm pretty sure that is not supposed to happen since I don't see swarms of bombers firing bombs at people inside POS shields every day.

As for me, I noticed my alt for some reason has a some t2 shield tanking mobs and cruise missile launchers in a station 20 jumps away from where I have the character normally stationed, and I have no recollection on how they got there. Especially weird since said character is skilled for hauling and industry, so I have no reason to even buy cruise launchers.

... then there is the ongoing question of what to do with all those Villard Wheels. I see they got a new icon for "Rubicon". Perhaps they will be needed for a grandiose purpose in the years to come. Jumpgates ? Or perhaps the necessary component in some new personal structure ?

I have Rockets V, Hacking V, and a procurer I can't fly.

I have no idea why.

Once someone gave me 2 bil in isk. Never said anything to me about, denied my PM requests, and never sent back any mail.

So cool I guess.

Is it named Tritanium Death Ship?
If so it played a merry trade game and ended up with you.

sounds like an error in the matrix.

how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

Sometime last year, just after buying a new ceptor and returning to station from its maiden voyage, I opened up the cargo just to see a corpse in there that I did not remember picking up at all. Creepy as hell.

Once while flying into a star someone scanned me down. Later that same guy gave me at least 15 corpses he found while scanning. No idea what compelled him to give me a pile of corpses, nor why I accepted.

I still have them somewhere.

My visited systems log on the star-map shows me going deep into lowsec space during my noob days when I was terrified of such place. I have no recollection of going there (was not drunk) nor can I find any reason why would I go into such god-forsaken place, especially if afraid of such place.
