Aside from encountering a Sudden Buggery RR AF gang, what is the most stupid thing you have seen in a wormhole? Generally this will be POS setups and stuff, but let me get started with some of the biggest fails I've ever seen in wormholes.

1. A freighter in a C1.
Wut? Like...wut. I can see why people do Orcas and Rorqs in C1's (if you gotta suck rocks, you gotta suck rocks) but a freighter? I am still baffled as to what the hell it is used for - even the whole "pack everything in it and logoffski" treament. Ploise explain.

2. Moon harvesters
Luls. The guys even had a full silo and refinery setup on their POS.

3. Hardeners outside the shield.
Needless to say, the inevitable POS bash we inflicted n them went a bit faster than they anticipated.

4. 32 large blasters, 32 medium blasters, 32 small blasters. 14 rounds of ammo.
...

5. A dude doing his PI milk run in an Orca.
Next time, Moby ****. Next time.

6. Chained Reactions.
Nuff said.

HAHAHAHA!

In no specific order:

1) Watching the Chained Reactions guy warp his orca to the sun to log off...

2) Someone popping our salvager only to return to his POS realizing he didn't refuel it. Needless to say, him and his POS were soon separated

3) A corpmate telling a a guy in high sec that bad people tried to gank him in our wormhole. Then asked the guy to fleet up with him to kill them. After jumping in the hole, we warped him to a safe spot....right on our fleet.

4) Starbridge's pos shield password

No trolling please

1) Watching a chained reactions carrier warp out of a caged pos and then log off at a "safe" spot.

2) Jasminmatar.

3) Fleeting up a neutral character to kill an unknown enemy right inside a wormhole, when the unknown is part of the neutral character's alliance. Doubly so if they need 14+ people to even attempt killing said character.

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.

2. Some guy who was not on session timer jumped in from high-sec in a navy apoc and wouldn't jump back out. He died quickly and then his friend warped to the high-sec, in a 3 billion isk golem, where he could see an entire fleet with a bubble up.

3. We had just opened our static and put a scout infront of a tower with 5 active pilots in it. Then suddenly the shields turned off, we killed 3 carriers and stole a few orcas. Turns out the guy moved the fuel into his hanger from the fuel bay rather than from his hanger into the fuel bay.

4. We had a low-sec in our C6, we decided to bring 3 caps in from low-sec. We lit a cyno on the wormhole and an entire fleet warped to it. Their broadsword jumped in and then we jumped the caps in closing the hole. The HIC held his cloak and then lit a cyno, I was laughing so much I could barely target the poor bastard.

5. We were closing our lobby with an orca and while the orca was in the connecting WH he was attacked by a manticore, the orca locked him in 60 seconds and pointed him, unleashing its drones upon him. He popped and then the orca managed to lock his pod and pod him aswell.

1. A nice fully fit indu pos without an active forcefield. The residents were idling on the tower one moon further while we did the Piñata maneuver. They managed to jump us as we were almost finished looting.

2. A guy who crashed our static Hi to Rens from the outside - in a single Hurricane. This took a while... I still have no clue what he was trying to achieve.

3. A guy who was mining in a retriever and having his Orca right next to him in the site - unmanned. It was filled with a rather large amount of assorted modules, bpc and other stuff.

I was in a WH in covops ship at the sun minding my own business. And then all of a sudden, a buzzard lands right next to me. I'm like 'okay.'

He then proceeds to start dropping probes and starts scanning. And this whole time, he is still uncloaked.

I decide to head out and get a ship to kill him.

I come back into the WH and then warp to the sun. He's still there and I kill him. He warps off in his pod. But that's not the funny part.

I then read the following in local from him;

"Damn"

I replied, "What?"

"I forgot to bookmark my entrance."

I could only chuckle at this noobness. I offered to lead him out if he paid me. Once I led him out, I recruited him to my WH corp.

But then I get an email a couple days later from his former CEO. Apparently, my recruit stole quite a few billions in ships and assets from him and the CEO. Of course, I had to kick him from corp.

Though, in hindsight, I realize I should've led him into a WH with his new Tengu and just awoxed him there and collect the bounty from the CEO who notified me after I had kicked him.

1. Carrier doing PI in a C1, sadly I was in a lowly cheetah without friends at the time. Sad

2. Lazors, Autocannons, and Hybrids on a Caldari POS with no ECM.

3. Hostile Typhoon dropping large shield bots and putting them on my Loki instead of combat drones.

4. Hardeners outside the POS shield with the ECM and Guns, again I had no friends.
I did find the same system about nine months later and they had finally put their hardeners inside.

5. A corpy opened our static to find 2 orca's on a POS with the FF down still unanchoring CHAs and SMAs. Pirate

One of the funniest things ive seen was 4 carriers trying to run a C6 site with drones.
No dreads, no subcaps, just carriers.

Sadly there was like 3 of us online so after they finally killed all the sub BS stuff and 3 BSs, (this was well over an hour later...), we broke out a zephyr and 2 covops and looted all their wrecks, said thanks in local and left.
overall they probably lost more in fighters than we made from the tags.


Another good one was when a pod warped to a remote BM of a HS hole i happened to be sitting on in my proteus.
Instead of warping off he decided to slow boat to the hole to jump so i made his trip a bit faster.
Got to love people who BM off scan results :)

There is no Bob.

Jumped a carrier in a C3 and set about it, his corpmate came out to save him in a nag with no siege mod, 2 turrets and some rr's.

Found 2 dreads and a carrier in a ss while they repped between sites, not sure why they werent at their pos but they all aggressed before logging so we had plenty of time to kill them at leisure.

Caught a mach in a C3 ratting, held him and ransomed for 1b. He stalled so we sent an alt for a hic, when told the bubble was coming he ejected and returned to his pos. We were allmost the idiots that time for coming so close to ransoming a 3b mach for 1b.

And finally me, for believeing CCP rp dept could rp. When the sansha invasions kicked off and CCP showed us a picture of a wh system they were apparently basing out of, so we went and found it, found it empty, reutnrned home jaded and cynical.

edit: one I allmost forgot: 5 tengus running noms, insanely fast, so im chasing them all around system, nom to nom cloaked, while the fleet readies up. Its taking a while to sort out ships and get in position. Out of nowhere, someone from a well known and suposedly competent wh corp jumps in system in a cheetah, drops combat probes and moves them ontop of my tengus. Flock is scared and returns to pos, cheetah starts talking in local about how he allmost had them. As subtle as a one man band fight on the jeremy kyle show.

1) AFK Archon, in a chained C5 combat site. We looked at that thing for 45 minutes. Looked at the cap fleet passively aligned to it from the pos. Looked at how they were just sitting there. Looked at how we only had like 5 people on at the time. We decided it MUST be a trap, so we went and sucked a couple instrumentals, then went for a null roam or something (I don't completely remember).

Came back 4 hours later. Still just sitting there happily tanking the remaining sleeper. So we killed it.

2) Local tanked Russian proteus and paladin (from null) who decided they could take a c5 anom. Crying for help in local. Looted their wrecks with cov ops afterwards. Well north of a bil in faction pretties.

3) A cloaked corpmate watching a newbie corp lose about a dozen ships, caps included, to a Mag site (sadly not in a connected hole at the time).

Had a Rattlesnake hop past a gate camp on a high sec hole into a c2 and immediately started running sites. We rolled the hole shut on him while his scorpion sat at the high sec and watched. Then we warped the fleet in, started murdering him, and he had just enough time to get off a "F you guys" in local before being sent back to high sec. After checking his loadout, poor bastard didn't even have a probe launcher on his ship; just shiny bits.

Don't jump past a fats camp and run sites.

...or do. makes funny stories.

My top four since moving to wormspace.

1. Warped to our bubbler as he had engaged a Navy Apoc on an exit to HiSec, guy sat 2.6km off the hole the entire fight. It never occurred to him to simply jump to Hi.

2. Two minutes later on the verge of warping back to our own hole a Golem from the same corp lands in the bubble. Bye, bye Golem and pod (and full Crystal set).

3. Last month we took down a tower with 1 hours stront in it.

4. Last night one of our guys probes down a Proteus logged off in Deadspace with aggression. Had full covert ops cloak and subsystems just didn't turn the cloak on before he logged.

-Some guy anchoring POS guns from outside his forcefield in a Bestower. I can only assume from the way he was anchoring and then un-anchoring them that he wasn’t satisfied with their placement unless they were in perfect symmetry. This left not only a convenient amount of time to line up a bombing run, but plenty of unanchored guns to steal after he took the pod express back to K-space.

-A guy in an NPC corp raiding a WH from high sec… for the grav site… in a Scorpion.

-2 guys coming to rat our C2. They were smart enough to avoid the bubble at the high sec static and tried escaping through the C1 static, which might have worked if they hadn’t been in battleships.

-The Skunkworks in a wormhole.
Scout> Found their POS. Amarr tower. Not a lot of stuff on it. 12 hardeners though.
Director1> That’s going to be annoying
Scout> Hang on a sec… none of them are EM.
Director1> They have no EM resists. Are you serious?
Scout> Yep, 4 of everything except EM.
Director1> It’s a trap. It’s got to be. No one is that dumb.
Director2> How can it be a trap?
Director1> I’m still trying to figure that out…
Director2> Don’t forget they did that on their indy towers we popped
Director1> I know, but can they be stupid enough to leave a yawning resist hole on their tower twice?

Apparently they can.

The killboard of Phantasmata Missile. I call it the W-space blooper reel: http://eve-kill.net/?a=pilot_detail&plt_id=374288

FC warps fleet to POS to start eviction. Accidentally warps self. Maintains that he did it to show the POS he was not afraid.

During a different op, our targets, not having anyone left in hole who can fly a Naglfar, decide to bump it outside of the shields of the one POS we haven't gotten to yet to kill it with the guns (we were grinding down a different POS at the time). We finished off that POS with their deadspace and faction-fit Naglfar.

Guy scouting for his buddy doing loot runs in a hauler. Decides to warp scram hauler for lols. Then I decloak.

Bored while tearing down their POS (pre short timers), three guys decide to pit an active-tank Legion against an abaddon with seven guns and a missile launcher and some other blingy combat ship. Outside their defenseless POS. Crunch.

Impel doing PI. I attack it with my Anathema, and almost killed it until his buddy in a drake showed up. We all scatter. He comes back ten minutes later. This time I have a Purifier.

From another thread:

Quote:
I think the worst thing I ran into was in my first Class 1 WH my Alliance owned.

We were selling it to someone else, and on that day, a French WH corp moved in. They anchored and onlined guns without ammo, and their EWar wasnt shooting at us, so they had no idea how to do things. Despite that, they still had Stronium.


Oh, and they has also anchored a System Scanning Array. I was hoping the tower didn't have Stront, I had all intentions of taking it.

http://narwhals.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=11889824

we were scouting a chain and found some caps in a po. for no apparent reason 1 rorqual and 2 chimera's warped to planet 1 at 0 and stayed there. in the fight after he fielded another 6 capitals consisting of rorq's, chimera's, thanny's and an ecm neuting phoenix. what ever he was doing with 3 capitals at a planet.......i will never know. he gave us his forcefield password after selfdestructing all his capitals after a 2 hour fight.
