At least it wasn't dual tanked, and they had the correct rig for the weapon type, and all the guns were the same caliber?Shame about everything else.

Good thing he took a selection of ammo types.

This wouldn't have happened if he had claimed his tank of honor.

my guess is he fitted the highslots and then an unfortunate accident occurred where his ship fell into the spare parts hangar.

All that atrocious ignorance. Not sure what bug me more: the single drone of each type or that they trained for T2 salvagers before T2 guns, tank, or anything else.

Ah yes, the Rail-Mach... Only a legend until now.

While this kill obviously screams inexperience, you are wrong when saying "mixed PvP/PvE fit in the mids". All these mods can be justified for a PVE purpose only (ever tried to kill elite NPC frigs with rails and low-skills drones ?).Now I happened to stumble upon another kill, and to this day I still fail to understand it. It is a PVP Machariel, no doubt about it, and if you look fast enough you could nearly believe it is a regular fit, but... I'll let eve-kill talk:http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_de...Any hindsight as to what the hell was THAT about would be much appreciated !

That looks like someone who wants to build an invincible multi-frigate uber destroyer. But doesn't understand BS lock times, no SEBOs, and insists on using Tech 2 ammo because "it's better" and he trained for it, and is overcompensating with all the tracking enhancers. It would be funny to see this up against 5-10 rifters. The cap rig is hilarious too. But I don't play enough to really know anything.

Probably fitting the ship.not worthy of article.biomass yourself.

nice goon story, but first lok at yo loses there is more fun fits then this mach

Some people come into Eve thinking that the shinier the ship, the better it must be. That the price of a hull must dictate how good it is at doing work (like items in World of Warcraft). However most of us know that Eve is not like this. A ship should be treated with care, using all of its bonuses to achieve its maximum potential.

Unfortunately, as the pilot of this loss mail fails to realize, having a particular racial bonus and having a bonus to that race's weapon systems are not the same thing.

My guess would have to be that this gentleman (or lady), having played for 7 months, had saved up through missions (or a PLEX sale or two) to buy the behemoth that is the Machariel. A pretty typical story.

But, just like a second helping of Christmas pudding. It gets better.

Deciding that eschewing the proper weapon systems wasn't good enough, our pilot opted for a mixed PvP/PvE fit in the mids, and a veritable kitchen sink in the lows, not even using all the slots. We will concede, though, that perhaps eve-kill is to blame, as the killboard occasionally misplaces modules. And, credit where credit's due, the damage mod and lone rig are at least appropriately matched to the weapon system of choice.

 

Yes, credit. It's the holidays, we're being charitable here.

 

Topping off this poor understanding of ship fitting, our pilot ventured into lowsec, likely ignoring the warnings about the danger, and promptly died.

As one of the comments on eve-kill said, “Clearly a mercy killing”.
