Why oh why oh why oh why would you ever do that? Ever? On paper, this is a guy that's been playing EVE almost quite literally since there has been an EVE. His last major loss was in 2008. According to the comments on the KB, he's been trying to corner the market on Orcas. Ergo, we're theoretically not dealing with a dumb ass here.
Except we are. 'nuff said.
Runner up were the three Malices killed on Sunday. I've talked about those already. Second runner up was part of the...
Number of dead super-caps this week: 2
By now, you've probably heard about this Erebus that lost his life in low-sec. If you have not, here's the EVE News 24 story and here's the back-story, sent to me by an old friend from LAWN. Short version: it looks like this Titan died thanks to a FW escalation gone a little out of control. Read the thread if you're interested. Drop became counter drop became counter-counter drop and the Erebus appears to have been dropped to settle the matter decisively. Only Shadow Cartel had their own idea of what "decisively" meant and the moment the Erebus appeared, they came in with a good size capital fleet and enough dictors to ensure the Erebus's destruction. So Shadow Cartel gets the main credit for this one. n1, guys!
Here's the video. It took about six minutes to take down the Titan with that fleet:
Also dead this week is this Nyx, also lost in low-sec, this time to Rooks and Kings. I'd appreciate it whomever knows the story on this one would share it. It sure looks like a pretty straight-forward hot-drop on a traveling super-cap... except it also sounds like the start to a joke. "A Nyx, a Chimera, a triple-plated Domi, and a ratting Machariel walk into a bar..." Uh, what? So yeah, I'd appreciate knowing the story on this one if anyone knows it.
And that was it for super-caps this week as far as I could tell... Sorry that the CSM-related post is a little late. It's turning out to be a more complicated post than I anticipated. It wasn't helped when I got quite a surprise today. I'll get into what it was about tomorrow...
