Another one:
A pal from my corp gets a 5/10 escalation in Highsec. I came helped him. I wrote: "Please let me go in first, because my Rattle can do that and I know whats in there." We clear the first pocket, and look who is jumping through the gate with 50% armour on his Armageddon....
I still make fun of him with the killmail.Big smile

Praise the Omnissiah!

As a noob not realising that all those Caldari missions would get me attacked on sight by the Gallente, jumped into their space in a Badger with about 60m of stuff and was caught and blown up.

I tried to kill a Evoke Brutix in low sec in a hurricane, I had mates to come along, I agressed on the gate so got the love from the gate guns and even worse allowed him to get on top of me, which was bad piloting, so by the time my mates arrived I was space dust. I then got in a blackbird as my mates chased him, he jumped in on a corp mate I locked him and jammed him and the gate guns blasted me, so I emergency warped out to another gate where the gate guns finished me off. Was my multiple derp moment...

When the going gets tough the Gankers get their CSM rep to change mechanics in their favour.

I lost the very first T2 ship I ever owned....to stupidity.

Got a shiny Hound, thought I would prowl low sec and find a target. I set a route and promptly covered the route in the upper left of the screen with the D-Scan window.

Imagine my surprise when I found a lone miner in a belt!

I lined up the perfect strike, he was so clueless- no idea I was right there, about to murder him. I decloaked and locked the barge. Warp disruptor and torpedoes on overheat, this kill mail would be a treasure.

Suddenly CONCORD has me floating in a pod. The miner warped away, probably wetting himself laughing.

I moved the D-Scan window and lo and behold, I was in the one high sec system in the route I had mapped out



Scary space pirate-- CONCORDONKED on his first solo ambush.

Another-

I was flying around high sec and found a pod just floating near a belt. No response from the player, no action by the pod. So I decide to clear the space trash and shoot this pod. But first, I needed something cheap to throw away because CONCORD is going to kill me for this 'gank'.

One laser on a T1 frig should be plenty, it's just a pod.

Well it was a pod in .9 space so CONCORD got there almost instantly, and my one laser got the pod to 9% structure when my ship exploded.

I utterly failed to gank a pod...an AFK pod.

I went and bought a ship, put a gun on it, and flew back there-- only to leave my own wreck next to the still sitting there AFK pod.

Did a similar thing too, was trying to catch miners in an anomaly but they were stabbed, went home and added another scram, locked, shot, then CONCORD......went back to the wrong system with the same anomoly in highsec....

Never go full Omar.
Also, hitting the bourbon after downing a twelve pack of Sam Adams... generally not conducive to excellent decision making.

'Hold my beer' doesn't even come close.

I'd argue that the fine line between courage and reckless stupidity can get really damned blurry when you're three sheets to the wind and have a derpy german encouraging you to do something that every sane nerve in your body agrees is a Bad Idea.

Embarrassing, but the important thing is to be able to laugh at yourself after the fact. Accept you were a dolt, and try not to one up yourself. Gotta own that stuff.

Also, a solid argument against me buying a carrier or a dread. I can only imagine the levels of dumb I could achieve behind the wheel of one of those things.

Come hell or high water, this sick world will know I was here.

I've been playing Eve for six years, so my bucket of space stupidity floweth over.

I got an entire CFC sniper fleet whelped in Fountain. I was scouting ahead while we chased an enemy brawler fleet. I jumped into the next system and reported it 'clear' other than a lone ship on the gate. What I meant was the gate was clear and my D-Scan didn't show the enemy, although they were all still in the system.

The FC thought I meant the entire fleet had jumped out and ordered our fleet to jump through and engage the lone enemy. Of course the moment we did all his buddies came warping back to decimate us at close range while we couldn't warp off nor jump back through the gate.

No idea what that screw up cost the SRP fund, but it was a slaughter.....and entirely my fault.

I recall a fight between two member's of ISD, one ISD Bludath of STAR, and one Max Trix of CCL.

There was great smack talk.

Then Max, the self proclaimed king of the forums, lost in seconds.........

Some say it killed his honour Twisted

I keep losing ventures because citadels allow people to sit in wormholes doing nothing but shoot ventures. GOod ole days of empty wormholes for megacyte are gone :/

Oh, I perfectly understand, Hal Morsh — a mission like this requires courage, skill, and heroism… qualities you are clearly lacking. Have you forgotten you're one of the bloody immortals!?

heh had a drake warp right on top of me, popped it before it could get the cyno off, obvious bait but I wanted to shoot something, luckily that one went in my favor.


You popped a Drake before he got the cyno off? Were you in a supercarrier or something?
