So KOTW has to go to this interesting story:
There must have been a full moon or something this last week, because the nuts were out in force. TMC covered this carrier loss in depth. Only the version of the story they got appears to be complete fiction, a deliberate troll aimed at TMC. Actual version of how this happened? Player got called for a CTA, ejected from his carrier at a POS in a system with no station, attended the op, and when he got back, his carrier was a wreck outside the POS. Password security breach? Grid malfunction? Nobody knows, and Tribal Band's CEOs are looking into it. Needless to say, the bomber pilot isn't telling.
Sometimes this sort of thing is fun: how does it happen? I myself was involved in a Paladin wreck in the last year that was POS-related. We left the wreck outside the POS as a mystery for the owner to solve. I'm not telling that story, and I don't blame the bomber pilot for not telling his. But between the article and the amusing spectacle of a single bomber kill on a carrier, that has to be this week's KOTW.
Honorable mentions? Sometimes even PL pilots forget an important step. Sometimes it's fun to theme fleet a structure bash... it takes a little of the monotony out of the proceedings if you kill a structure with dozens of Vindicators. After that, though? Not a lot jumped out at me. It was a pretty quiet week, all in all. EVE seems to be holding its breath for Odyssey, as typically happens in the run-up to a new expansion. And that also applied to the...
Number of dead super-caps last week: 0
That's right. Big ol' doughnut. Matter of fact, the only really expensive things that died this past week were a grand total of three assorted jump freighters, all in high-sec, killed by Freight Club or The Marmite Collective... plus this Heron:
Pull up the Sleeper Drone AI Nexus, and you'll find it's a piece of loot that is purchased by large numbers of NPCs for five million ISK each. There's a running theory out there that this particular item is a great target for RMTers, who buy them slightly above cost in Jita, un-dock with them, get them ganked, scoop them with another character (assuming they survive), then sell them back to an NPC at a slight loss... only now theoretically they think CCP can't trace where the ISK went since it's now in the hands of some random character who scooped the NPC-purchased loot. Any that are lost are a cost of doing the RMT business.
Can CCP track this sort of thing? Haven't a clue. But it sure seems silly to have this stuff in a character that can be tracked by API...
