There were a lot of kills that really tempted me this week. I myself was peripherally involved in a fun kill this week, this Scorpion. The armor tank is fairly standard; I like a dual-resist, dual-plate model myself, but OK. The fun part is that Scorps are of course renowned super-close-range neut boats... and this pilot knew more or less our exact fleet comp and yet still went all Caldari racial jammers and no Minmatar jammers. That's taking FW role-playing to impressive levels right there...
But no, for the actual Kill of the Week, I've gotta go with this:
Now granted, wormhole players have a lot of ISK. And sometimes, it's fun to spend that ISK on goofy stuff, like gas-mining Tengus and the like.
But this might be taking things a little bit too far.
From the highs to the range-scripted Sebos to the meta Invuls to the hordes of tech 1 drones in the Drone Bay, this fit does nothing but scream "troll!" at me. And yet the alliance that produced the kill reminds us that this ship is worth six PLEXes these days, or more than $100 U.S. To build a realllllly big Noctis. For some reason, the Verge of Collapse KB doesn't show what was in the cargo hold, but eve-kill apparently does.
Now granted, I've heard a rumor that there's a new method for blitzing the capital escalations of C5 wormhole sites. And granted, the composition of the destroyed fleet this Rorq was with aligns with what I've heard about this new method. Maybe the Rorq really really is the only practical way to salvage and loot the site if you're blitzing sites in this manner.
But there's got to be a way to make the Rorqual in question more survivable than this. There just has to. Because you're not making yourself look any smarter with loss-mails like this... ;-)
