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



Temnava is a rather active WH corp...so...Yes i'm fairly certain it relates to wormholes

Also, the title of the link actually says 'opened into old man star.' That might give it away

The other night, I had just woken up from a well-deserved rest after spending 24 hours camping a carrier we happened to get a 100% hit on before he logged. Anyway, not long after coming back, one of our guys camping the static reports a Helios comes into system, and warps off to a planet. Naturally, with nothing else better to do, he follows. He then reports over comms "pilot's jumped into his pod." Wtf?

He doesn't quite know what to make of it, so he starts burning toward him, only to see him disappear. It takes him a few seconds to register the corpse on his overview. Apparently, some idiot from Intrepid Crossing came into our system, warped to a planet, ejected from his ship, and self-destructed his pod for no apparent reason.

Knowing that a mobile warp disruptor always means something awful in wormhole space. Then going to null sec and warping to a hurricane that had a mobile warp disruptor surrounding it..

Fail!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gonna post this here, one of our dreads warped to wrong anom, I told rest of supp to reship to carriers to save thinking I could tank the spawn (which I have done many times) and well neuts got the better of me. Rulux had already run smarties so logofski wasnt an option!!!!!

Troll away mofos!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luckily being wh folk there was enough isk in the pot to be able to completely reship and refit............... now just need a way in!

Thank you for removing that abomination of a ship from the game. I shudder to think why they thought that made for a good gasser.

Three things funny interesting happened in last 2 weeks with the corp im in, we live in a C5, in our static we came across another corp (gunna leave out names, though can easily find out by checking KB) running sites, they had a decent fleet and so did we so they fight was good, but we had logi and they didnt so we eventually killed them all easily, most of them managed to avoid getting podded, and came back with more ships to which we killed. They joined our public channel saying gf and what not and 1 guy said "you destroyed all my ships and i dont have enough to replace them :("

Fast forward an hour or 2 were just chilling looking for some fights, our scout on another WH starts shouting about an orca jumped jumped through, we head his way, scout uncloaks making the orca panic and jump back through the WH polarizing himself, we arrive and get him into deep structure, he ejects and warps away, i jump in his orca, scoop my loki and bring the orca back to home system to sell later.

Turns out the orca pilot was the same guy that joined our public channel and complained he didnt have enough isk to replace his losses. I lol'd hard :D

Second thing was just the other day, scout finds orca on scan towards our WH obviously trying to collapse the WH or something, as he lands the orca vanishes (assuming it jumped back through), we all jump into cloaky ships and warp to 10 of WH waiting for him to come back, got impatient and sent a scout through, no sign of him. Just as we were giving up a tengu jumps through, we melt the tengu.

Scout says another tengu, loki and proteus are landing other side of hole, we begin to jump through, i was 10km off hole so kept cloak and slow boated to hole, SUDDENLY ORCA DECLOAKS! Im like ZOMG its still here ill get point , (suddenly realize in my haste i grabbed the wrong ship and it didnt have a point) on it so here i am bumping the orca to prevent it warping lol.

Orca jumps through the hole (by this stage he knew he was dead). We had sent a bubbler in also and he had set up other side to grab their pods.

Melted the Orca, the the loki and another 2 tengus. Some very expensively fit, got a few of their pods including their corp leader who had a full slave set valued at 3.4bisk.

So they sent all these expensive ships and pods to save an 800misk orca and ended up loosing about 9bisk with ships, fittings and pods in total.. It was a good day :D

Last thing was we probed out a null sec exit and went looking for pew, lovely Nyx on scan nom. Eventually the locals ( i think they were goons but i cant remember rightly) put up a fleet, warped to our WH (at 0, i dont know why), this particular fleet we had about 15-20 people, armor T3's mostly and some logi. They had the same amount of people with tengus and assortment of other ships. We annihilated them, they all reshipped and came back, we annihilated them AGAIN! They reshipped and came back a THIRD TIME which we promptly destroyed again, by this time it was getting late and i went home and logged off but i found out the next day a 4th engagement happened to which we won again lol. We either took no losses ourselves or very little losses, cant rightly remember off the top of my head.

I think the owner quckly refitted it to gas or was a horrible attempt at bait (like the ones I pull)

I was running a c2 site (I was bored so sue me!) and got jumped by a cloaky tengu and hic......5 minutes later they left when the discovered they couldn't break my tank as i ignored them and crried on my farming in the site. I felt sorry for them as they did the warp of shame away. My corp mates couldn't even be bothered whith them as it flet like stabbing puppies with rusty screwdrivers.

T-Lost, (Double-Down) rolled our static for us today.

Scout reports an Orca and Dreadnought on our statics K162. Dread jumps in and back out, warps off. Orca jumps in and the hole collapses. What I think was a smart move was he cloaked not too long after the hole died, we thought for a second that it collapsed from him jumping back through, but that didn't make much sense , So I approach him, he decloaks, then we tackle him and bring him into structure.

Somewhere in the mix, he initiated the SD sequence, which none of us even noticed the message for. Big surprise he ejects and warps off. Since we didn't see the SD message, we were just holding the orca until a pilot showed to scoop, but as the pilot landed the Orca goes pop. Damn, thought they were giving us a free Orca. Shortly after the Orca blew up, we notice a corpse on scan. Okay, so he podded himself, saved us the trouble of hunting him.

I see a little irony in this, but moving on to the next....

2) The Dread they used to roll was stabbed!! Yes, WCS.. on a Dread.

We were hoping that a GF was afoot, but instead, we got lulz. Which is fine for now I guess..Thanks guys! o7

The dread was not stabbed, you landed on it while it was ewarping from logging in... We were actually in process of launching an expo, which is why we wanted that system. Also, what were you expecting to do to my dread with that lone anathema? I had loki support right behind the dread as well.

About the Orca, mistakes happen in W-space. I was doing a routine collapse, Orca first, then dread follows. I was dual boxing them, and did not realize that the orca had not jumped out due to the 10sec session change. Before I could remedy the situation I hastily jumped the dread out... 5ish T3s were landing so was kinda in a hurry. I was hoping you thought I had jumped when I cloaked... did not work out though.

~800mil loss is acceptable in comparison to the 40bil we made in the expo. It was minor set back.

But yes, I agree I had a fail moment... and moving on!!

It was not a login warp, pilot was online and on dscan the whole time, I dropped combats on grid from your Loki which tried to catch me, had enough time to pin it and warp to it, point it, before you knew what was happening. Also, I was in a Cheetah.

Fail cascade. Kbye.

I was the dread pilot (not this char), orca pilot, and loki pilot. That is why I know it was logged, When I saw combats out with the loki is when I decided to log the Moros back on and warp my loki to it to get your scanner. Just cause its on D-scan does not mean the pilot is online.

I had only logged the dread because of what I was dealing with on the other side of the closed hole (orca pwnage). The dread had aggression timer due to webs, I had forgot about this and that is why it was still on D-Scan. Ive never fit a Warp stab on any of my ships ever. I fly what I can afford to lose, and have no need for those modules. Regardless, It was fail on my part for losing the Orca.
