Your Worst Loss

Here is a thread to discuss our worst losses, doesn't have to be a ship, maybe you forgot to put skills in the training queue before going on vacation or accidently clicked "Trash It..." on some expensive officer/deadspace item or perhaps it was a ship.

Let your tears flow freely...

For me it as a Mach in a mission after hit warp and went afk a little too long with the booster off >.>

For me it was when I learned that I could not get a refund for 1 year subscription on 2 accounts.
Was gonna unsubscribe and hoped to get a refund after not getting the GMs to refund my Golem.

The Golem was lost because of a bug/glitch that did not show up in their precious logs apparently.

My worst loss was my faith in CCP.

I hope they'll add a way to get new faith again with the next expansion.

My worst loss is OUR worst loss, and that's the takeover of this forum by the IHI, a nefarious group of vandals who self-righteously step on every post, not allowing anyone to have an idea of their own. Through their narrow-mindedness and self-aggrandizement they've mastered beating a dead horse, but they can't seem to keep the carcass on their own posts.

It's ill, and there is no pill.

In keeping with the amenable OP:

"Worst" of course is a relative term. I've had more expensive losses, but at the point of my "career" this one occurred, it was pretty infuriating, and took some time to overcome.

'T was on a fleet op with the corpies, running level IVs for grins and gain. We were mustering at a point to warp in as a nice, well-organized (not necessarily sober) fleet. Everyone was taking their sweetass time about getting there, so I decided now would be a good time to take a bio break. I announced same in fleet audio/corp audio/corp chat/fleet chat, then scurried off to do the do. I come back to the horrifying sight of my pod. Seems the fleet commander got a bit impatient and decided to start the fun and games instead of waiting for everyone to show. He warped fleet to the site, dragging my brand new, T2 armor-tanked 'Cane with him (45 million set up at the time). I bet he was wondering why he wasn't drawing any aggro...gotta love the combat enhancing effects of Jack Daniels.

It's okay. Being shipless (for level IVs) I became the salvager and kept his share of the loot till I got the 45 mill back. He was too drunk to notice.

Paradise is like where you are right now, only much, much better.

Worst loss was when i setup a big escrow (back then) with most of my stuff to transfer to another character and due to a bug everything just disappeared. Of course the "logs showed nothing" so i lost almost 2 Bill without having done anything Sad

i lost my destoyer when i was only 3 days into this game and all i had was a single frigate left.

That was really hard.

Ive lost BS since but nothing was as hard as that destroyer

Not sure about worst but this is certainly my most stupid loss. I was doing missions in a Battleship and just after the change went in that made it very, very hard for Battleship type weapons to do damage to frigates I ran into some nice NPC frigates that had me webbed and I couldn't damage them enough to make a difference. Just as my ship was exploding I remembered I had some drones on it, had I used them I would have been able to kill those tiny insignificant frigates. Shocked

Don't laugh. Oops

When I first started playing, I tried my hand at trading and saw that there would be a good profit moving slaves from one location to another about twelve jumps away. I didn't know anything about contraband at the time and put all my money into buying slaves in Amarr space. Wasn't paying too much attention around gates and while I saw the Concord notice, I kept clicking through it. By the time I got to the station my wallet was over twenty million in the red Lol. Probably not my worst fiscal loss, but definitely the biggest oops I've had.

well if it's about silly loss, i remember my first myrmidon, years ago ;
i was manuafcuring it, was happy to have a ship to sell on the market, but as i needed to move it to another station, and as i never used a myrmi before, i wanted to test it on combat before selling it.
i took a quick fit, asked an agent, went to the mission, and died horribly in less than 5minutes with my new shiny ship.
seemed obvious to me that given it ws bigger than a brutix, the tank would last way longer, and that even if it was almost dead i would survive... was not the case.

I was a few days into the game and I lost, I think, 2 destroyers and a frig in the span of an hour or so. Those were my only 3 ships. It was very heartbreaking for a new player.

My biggest loss would be accidentally biomassing my previous main character (I had an alt with a very similar name, big mistake).

For losses that aren't characters, my biggest loss would be a set of blueprint originals.
