Guess the nullsecer didnt get the memo, dont mine in a wh if you dont own it and crit the outbounds and incomings.


I think the memo he failed to get was that WH mining is no better than nullsec mining. Why leave familiar territory with local chat and intel channels to mine in a WH? In a ship that can't even carry that much out no less.

Bumping an old necro thread with my latest story.

Last night while diving near our chain I jumped into a c2.

After warping around a bit i see something odd on my DScan, yep that's right, a phoenix without a forcefield around it (in a c2). After a bit more dscan wizardry i eventually find this phoenix poco bashing.

I immediately warp to the poco and the shoosting commences while I am dialing every person i have in the batphone phonebook because it was 30 mins to downtime.

Needless to say, i could only get 10 bros to come out and help and the thing was safe and secure and the pilot didn't log back in.



Not happy Jan...

When leaving our hole to go another. We encountered a shuttle coming through the HS to our static c3. Pops up in local asking if this was our hole. we lied and said it was and if he paid us a fee of 400m he could live with us, At this point we had a sabre inbound to land on him and bubble up just as he popped 400m was transferred into my account which was split between 3 people bullshitting to the guy in private convo.

Needless to say the guy said he wasn't playing eve again. Was beautiful to hear the laughter on comms when I announced he transferred the money.

Epic fail: this past weekend's attempted defense of the Honey Badgers from Blood Union & Allies (henceforth BU&A).

100% efficiency on the killboard for BU&A: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=20186466

Blog about the event: http://splatus.wordpress.com/2013/10/27/charge-of-the-light-brigade/

My alliance -- Illusion of Solitude -- played a small part in the attempted defense of the system, mainly scouting and providing a small contingent to assist in the fight. Most of us were in ships borrowed from the Badgers that they ejected for us to use. The defense fleet

  • Had no clear leadership,
  • Had terrible communication,
  • Staged in a reinforced POS,
  • Had half the fleet logged off by the time BU&A attacked,
  • Had spies/neutrals in the defensive fleet due to overly-permissive recruiting,
  • Had an unpiloted Archon stolen from the POS by "friendlies",
  • HB "allies" gave BU&A the POS password (including one idiot who named his ship the POS password, 'podsex') so that at one point the BU fleet successfully went bowling through the defensive POS,
  • Spies communicated warp-ins to ensure the defensive fleet landed in a drag bubble (admittedly, this might have just been a scout warp-in fail, but given the level of intel leaked to BU&A, I think it's unlikely a coincidence).
  • Had many who believed BU&A propaganda that they only had a small fleet in-system, and that the Honey Badgers defense was "blobbing" them and that BU&A were there for a "good fight", not an eviction.



Overall, a hilarious (but expensive) learning experience. The most one-sided waffle-stomping I've ever personally experienced. Congrats BU&A, and LOLs to we the defenders :-) The battle was lost long before it was started. Having good intelligence on your opponents is apparently worth far more than the ostensible size of your fleet.

QT, son, I am disappoint. You know that Trinkets senior is not me.

Besides, could anyone really expect to survive that blobbing? What is it, 3 Bhaalgorns, 5 Guardians, 5 Legions and all the rest makes someone fail?

I'm just glad the dude didn't warp in my Nag he was "borrowing".

With 2 retrievers?

You almost didn't have enough guardians.

There's nothing worse than an EVE player, generally considered to be top of the food chain in the MMO world, that cannot smacktalk with wit and coherency.

Iirc this group was running without scouts. We rolled in started scanning and noticed the group. Then pounced when we realized rhey weren't even watching d-scan.
