Jumping a JF to kickout station in Irshah while on space hangouts. WCPGW?

That most be a blatant lie.

You've moved to Iceland to work for CCP.

Ergo, you don't have any sanity to lose ;)

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

Recently lost a tengu with my main. "big whoop" right, well, i was sat in that tengu since they released tengus.. Bought it for 2bil+ i think not to mention the sentimental value.

Was killed by a alliance tournament prize ship, so i guess that's kind of neat.. I guess..

So now I'm flying "The Event Horizon II", she is new and shiny and never gives me any trouble when trying to start her up and all the subsystems fit together without using Minimatar tricks.

It's great.. It's a good thing really, it was getting to old and.. and..

Wow. Lady "watch local" coupled with ***** "forgot to upgrade clone" decided to visit you in a joint drive.

This is as nice as I get. Best quote ever

Undocking and flying to Dodixie in an Orca while suspect. Got my pod out. Continued to Dodixie in pod, warped to station forgetting i'd land outside the docking perimeter and got podded. All in all not a tremendous success. I wasn't even drunk.

In my earlier days, I got a Dominix to run level 4 missions, and I thought it would be nice to name it after my wife. I even showed it to her, all proud-like, which got the response: "I don't get it, but that's nice."

A couple of days later while running a mission, my wife comes in and decides she needs to "discuss" something with me, and that exact instant of time was when it was going to happen. By the time I got back to Eve, the rats that I'd aggro'd before the "discussion" had made scrap metal out of the Dominix.

I never did tell her about it.

Worst Loss?

hmmmmmmmmmmm...It was a November many years ago. I thought, "Hey, this looks like a cool game"....and I entered my credit card number on Often, you'll find me ruminating about that...alone...away from family and friends....those that could support me the most. How can I face them?

Came back to the game after a break. Ganked a miner in high-sec. Wasn't aware of the new kill rights system.

Gank victim made my kill rights available to the universe a short time before I hopped in my loaded freighter, set autopilot for Jita and then tabbed out and left the room.

I returned some hours later to be greeted by my pod in a station. Witnesses to the apparent execution tell me the plucky freighter almost made it to the dock before shattering into a million shiny pieces. Still, I really nailed that Coveter.

Most annoying

Was in Hed GP about 5 years ago. Challenged some pilot called D'agon Picard (or something) to a 1v1. His mates joined him and I got ganked. My clone was in the station. Enraged, I hopped in a Ranis and engaged him again. Got killed again, Picard just survived and it was only awakening in the station once again that I realised I had failed to update my clone in between deaths and that I had now lost the skill Medium Autocannons V.

I was furious.

Lost 500mil isk and a fully fitted Redeemer to Goonswarm requirement scam. They made it look legit with their fake website. Leason learned, never trust goonswarm. Almost made me deactivate my accounts and swear off Eve.

Autopiloting an untanked Badger while in Militia while AFK. Lost at least 200 mil. Never again. 2nd runner up was my drake being bumped out of station with a thorax. Didn't see that nasty little bugger till it was too late.

My most embarrassing loss was when I was adjusting POS settings in the WH I used to lived in and ejected several ships I had just moved for a corp member from another POS we had in the wh. Was a cloaky in system and he nabbed a cpl killmails for free. Oops


I won't say you are stupid, but you're not exactly on the Zombie menu either.

Well im still a fairly new player but my most emarassing loss has to be falling asleep during a lvl3 mission in my 10 minutes old drake.

I could replace it and I was not too upset about it, it was roughly 80 mill down the drain, the only sad part was the way I lost it.

I was sitting with a very high fever waiting for my painkillers to kick in so I could get some sleep. But as they did, i fell asleep in my chair and I got killed but rats, woke up in my pod ;(
