You have too much money,No? Maybe an explanation is in order. Remember how I said last year that Mittens used to advertise himself out as a super-cap escrow service, only from time to time he kept the money? Yeah, well, this guy was a victim of that. Same... freakin'... guy. And word around the campfire is that he's also got another super. So for those keeping score at home, he's managed to put together 20 billion to give to Mittens, 40 billion to buy one super, and 60 or 70 billion to lose another. At least 130 billion or so total.
and that is crazy.
But there's the exit,
so rage-quit maybe?
And he's an idiot. Total mouth-breather. Moron. Waste... of... synapses. And I'm not the sort that uses these sorts of insults lightly. But dear Heaven do they apply.
Anyway, if you want to read the whole sordid story of how a Titan came to have mining lasers fitted to it and how it died, EVE News 24 has it. Me, I couldn't read more than a few paragraphs without it threatening to make me sick to my stomach.
Number of dead super-caps this week: 3
So that was one dead super this week. And it was a gank, obviously. Not going to shoot down a lot of people with mining lasers, even if you have an Auto Targeting System. Second super kill was this Avatar that I mentioned at the end of my post last week. This super has the distinction of being the very first super killed to actually score a kill in exchange for its death since I started keeping track of dead supers about two months ago. This Titan killed one Moros, courtesy of a DD. Kind of a bad trade, but at least the Avatar got a kill, no? And that would be glorious, except for the fact that the Moros was assassinated.
Oh yeah. Story here is that the Avatar warped to a station at maximum range intending to DD the Moros un-docked outside. The DD went off without a hitch. But then, the Avatar was stuck there. Apparently, this dude forgot that he couldn't jump away after firing a DD, nor could he just cloak out there. Had the Avatar been aligned, just maybe he would have gotten away with it. Only he wasn't. Ergo, dead Titan. Dumb people 0, smart people 2.
Third super loss of the week was this Nyx yesterday, also a gank. It's been implied this one died due to a spy in this guy's alliance but I obviously haven't been able to confirm that. First comment on the kill-board claims that this super didn't even belong to the pilot in question. If so, I'd say he's got some explaining to do... If you know more details about this gank, please add them in the comments.
Glad that there were three super kills this week instead of two, at least!
EDIT (22/Oct/2012): As I went to publish this article, I noticed that EVE News 24 seems to be having some sort of difficulty, at least for me. If it's still down later today, I'll modify this post accordingly.
