I hate doing this twice in one year. But look at this Legion. It's the Kill of the Week.
Now look at this one, this one, and this one. They all died in February. Sometimes, he armor tanks. Sometimes, he shield tanks. Usually, he does both because that's clearly better. The combination of beam lasers and a warp scrambler is very poor. Beams are sniping weapons with very poor close-range tracking. A scrambler assumes that you are going to be in close combat with your foe. Which you should not be with only one medium armor repairer. Those Ancillary Current Routers? Almost certainly not necessary. Faction Heat Sinks are fine, but there's almost never a reason to fit four of them to a PvP ship. Fitting the neuting Legion subsystem is fine... as long as you fit more than ONE neut.
In short, virtually everything about this ship is bad... and this pilot keeps doing it again and again. As I said the last time this came up, if you're not succeeding at this game and it's happening again and gain, get some help. Please!
Two honorable mentions this week. The first one goes to this Nomad. Apparently this pilot was PvPing in low-sec but then decided he was done with that. He docked up, jumped into his Nomad, warped it from a safe undock directly to a high-sec gate, jumped it into high-sec... and only then found out he still had a suspect flag from his low-sec PvPing. Whoops!
The second honorable mention goes to this Orca killed by a new group called New Order Logistics. This is a new bunch that specializes in mining ganks. Some gankers do it for profit. Others do it for strategic objectives. New Order Logistics is doing something new: ganking for the sheer joy of ganking. Only Catalysts and other ships with blasters need apply...
Number of dead super-caps this week: 1
EDIT (25/Feb/2013): I completely screwed up on this one. The original version of this blog post had a version of how this Nyx died that while it had a detail or two correct, was wrong in so many particulars that I'm really quite embarrassed. Thank you to Snorkel for setting me straight. I regret the error.
Another quiet week for dead supers, with only this ratting Nyx falling to a Northern Coalition black ops drop. The full story plus video is available on EVE News 24 and makes for great reading!
