Back when Apocrypha was a few weeks old I boarded a Retriever, jumped into a C2 (thank you, printscreens) and mined Arkonor into cans. When a can got full, I ejected the Retriever and went out for my Mammoth. Then undocked in a pod again and went back to board the Retriever and so on and so forth. This went on for approximately six hours.

I failed to get blown up while doing this utterly stupid thing.

I failed while failing.

On that note, I once killed someone who came into a wormhole in a retriever and started dropping probes.
Probing retriever.
Wut.

in those days your behavior was perfectly reasonable because WH space was a lot less inhabited and hostile. if you were to try this today though... Roll

You would think so, but we used to organize "Weekly Brutor Tribe Roams" into lowsec pews out of Rens (hilarious action btw, lot of surprise buttseksed pirates and tons and tons (and tons) of T1 frigate/cruiser wrecks on our -carebear- side) which we shifted to w-space immediately after Apocrypha hit TQ.

But all in all, yes, w-space was indeed safer back then.

We came across an Adhocracy gang, who camped us inside our WH, at the time we had been a bit quiet so we came up with a plan. We knew this would most liekly result in death and destruction for us all, but if it worked it would be awesome.

They had the fleet across each side of the WH so our plan was sacrifice 2 orcas to collpase the WH, splitting the fleet, as numbers were against us this should have given us an advatange (we had carrier support)

Unfortunatley the plan failed.....the orcas did not collapse the WH, resulting in most of the fleet making it to our side THEN collapsing it!

However it was a very good fight, we managed to get a legion and a falcon before adhoc got the RR gang they had setup and we couldnt break it.

One of our guys survived, a lone Rokh pilot XD

Adhocracy is a great group of guys (and girl when Emb logs in) Lol They were TL's original ghost, always managing to show up out of the blue and blow up my poor ships. Always a good laugh afterwards.

As far as you guys go, pretty ballsy with the Orca's. You will go far in wh space with that attitude Lol

Just a few tips..

1) Don't sit still in an anom

2) Warp core stabs won't save you when a bubble goes up

3) Watch d-scan

No trolling please

1. One time our scout had just entered our fresh static C3 and reported a legion on scanner, he had been doing anomalies but noticed our scout in d-scan and warped to his pos. Our scout then began chatting with the legion pilot and convinced him to come do sites with our scout, who went back to our pos to change to a drake. At this point we thought it might be a bait but we had a pretty sizeable force for a C3 group to tackle. But no. As soon as our drake landed on the site, the legion appeared there too and started shooting sleepers. Needless to say our scout could barely tackle him as we were all laughing our asses off. Lol

2. Once I was scouting our static C3 and was just looking at an online pos where there were 2 online domis chilling. For some reason they slowboated outside of the shields and started shooting each other, only to both get popped by the tower guns seconds later. Well, happens, I thought. But couple of minutes later they both boarded new domis and did the same thing again. Ugh Biggest WTF moment so far.

3. I was once again scouting our static and saw nothing but a Loki at a pos. We hadn't killed anything that night yet so I wanted to try everything. I found the pos and noticed the Loki pilot was online. Sent him a fleet invite, never expecting him to be stupid enough to actually accept it. But behold! The Loki turned purple on the overview and immediately I initiated a squad warp to the sun. I would've paid any amount of isk to see his face when I uncloak my tackler legion in the same warp tunnel with him. Lol Seconds later we land at the sun, I tackle his ass and my fleet comes in to perform bukkake on it.

4. Just a couple of weeks ago, rolling our c3 static again, I found a domi, moros and an archon at a pos in dscan. Then I noticed there is no force field. What? I warped to them and to my amazement found they were just chilling next to the offline tower and the archon had no pilot in it. I get close to the Archon and we warp our archon pilot in a t1 frig to me.

We successfully steal the Archon. While all that was happening and most of our guys still logging in etc. the Moros warps away. I was in a tackle Tengu and the rest of us were armor with Guardians too, so I was a little afraid to uncloak. Looking back at that I would've been in no danger whatsoever. (Domi might have had some neuts and drone dmg, but thats about it. Also hadn't scouted their pos yet) Facedesked pretty hard after letting the Moros go. Ugh The Archon had remotereps fitted so we brought as little dps as we could to bait them maybe to bring the moros back. They brought some small **** and another domi and we cleaned them up, stripped the carrier from modules and self-destructed it.

Here's the epic battle report: http://kossu.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13859733
And this is how you tackle bombers with an Archon: http://kossu.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13859737 (it had scram fitted v0v)

Having just found this thread, I am utterly terrified one of my losses is in here.
As to my own story; right after the POS fuel change earlier this year, the first wormhole I entered had a tower where they had forgotten to use the new fuel blocks.
It included a Tengu and Cheetah who logged into the pos whilst we were looting everything Roll
Was a few months back, and I was actually writing the post whilst looting so the writing style is all over the place. It's not exactly an epic tail of stupidity, but we made a few billion from it so I'm not too bothered.

Oh, fond memories. A very good fight indeed. Our comms toward the end of that fight consisted of "Stop the Rokh!" "You can't stop the Rokh!" Indeed, we could not stop the Rokh, which is our fail in that fight I suppose.

A while back I was scouting out static at around 5 in the am central time. No one was on, and I needed to make some money as it was time to plex again. I find myself a vital and figure it is going to be good money since all 6000 of the stuff would go to me. Also the money from this would likely pay for one of the plex and a good chunk of the other.


I had started to get setup to take care of the sleepers using a super secret method, when I had to go afk because of some RL issues I had to take care of. (lactose intollerant) I came back, get in my gassing ships an almost warp to static. But I decided to go scout it out again, seeing as how I had just went afk for about two hours, and what do you know, someone is running my vital. I see on Dscan 4 gassing ships, a nice little swarm of hobgoblin 1s, and two cans conviently named c540 and c320.

It is now 7 am. No one is online that is actually not being afk. I start to run over the scenarios in my head. I could use a bomber, but likely wont pop them and will probably pop the gas. (I really wanted my gas) I resign myself to losing this lot when all of a sudden it hit me. I get my bustard ready and warp my anathema off to the outer planet and pop combats. I put them on the bookmark for the site, but dont hit scan yet. I warp to the site at 100 and bookmark the cans. I wait a few minutes for hte bookmarks to appear in corp bookmarks, then hit the scan button for my combats.

My combats appear on dscan, and then these guys immediately start to warp out. Once they are gone, I warp my bustard to the 320 can, grab it, warp him to a 400k tacticle, then back to the two 540 cans. (Apparently they needed a second.) I warp the bustard back in grab as much 540 as I can when a rapier decloaks and points my bustard with only 1 point, and then is kind enough to web him down. My bustard gets out and back into home. I deposite the gas and decide to get greedy. I put my main in a noctis and warp to the can 50k off.

I tractor in the can and my bustard lands on my position as two arazus decloak and start to burn towards me. I pull the gas and then warp both ships out.

TL:DL

Saw gassers running vital in static.
Used combats to scare them off.
Scooped most of the loot.
Got greedy came back and scooped rest.
Profit.

I die a little inside when I see BRs like that, having triage on the carrier and a fleet with the same tanking composition would have completely swung the fight.

We had our own dose of fail with ADHC awhile back, tho it wasn't completely one sided fail. To keep a long story short - I spied their bait cane on dscan and went in with my cynabal (having the ability to pull bait and GTFO if needed) while telling my fleet to stay put til I could see what was what... cue half my fleet including faction battleships landing on the bait a moment later - realising the game is up I jump the WH to see what backup the cane has to find a 20 man ADHC fleet sitting the other side and we barely make it out alive... (10 man fleet with no logis, against 20 man guardian supported fleet). Most of us make it back to our wormhole before ADHC get to it but a couple of our cloakies are stuck the other side and despite being told several times that ADHC now have control of both sides of the link wormhole one decides to try and make it through:

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=10309588

However the fail then swings the other way with half the ADHC fleet jumping back to us despite the wormhole having gone critical, most make it back before it collapses leaving a few trapped (there was more but they managed to get out before we had points):

I jumped into a WH the other day and saw a couple of battlecruisers on scan, no POS. Naturally I'm thrilled, but they're not an an anom, so I figure they must be in a gas site or something. I find somewhere to drop probes, spend a while d-scanning them out, and finally scan them down. It takes me two tries to get a hit, but these things happen. It's only when we land on-grid that I realize they were at an interbus POCO the entire f**king time and I could have just warped to them from my goddamn overview.

I'm very sorry, but I must be missing something here..how is this in any shape or form connected to wormholes?

But I must admit that last sentence your dear friend typed into local, that was a good troll attempt!
