Good article. Now where can I read about 2 dead supers in 1 day and failed attempt of taking H-W?

I'm getting strange looks because people are wondering why I'm laughing so much. That is seriously beautiful. Well played.

Try in the article titled "The Battle for H-W" for a start.

That's why you fit afterburner and ecm drones. As a backup variants. Also having a backup ship(and or friend) to pilot it is a good thing.

Can flipping is a staple and foundation in Eve.. I have no clue why they would take it away. One more 'protection' for the stupid retards in High sec and another slap in the face of those of us that want to play the game in the big sand box. Pretty soon we are going to need eve mails with express written permission to engage anyone that is not sitting in 0.0 space for over 15 minutes. CCP.. suck me.

I also have no idea what that little blue box 'i' stands for on eve-kill.

Why not web and kill drones then try to lose him in the asteroids? get him to bounce ogf something and use your agility in your favor?
Avatar
Oh no, CCP is taking away the safety of can flippers by allowing anyone to shoot them, this is a slap in the face to the harshness of Eve...wait.

How is a high sec free for all bad for PvP?After Retribution I can get PvP anywhere in highsec by simply looting a can, unpredictable PvP at that, I will have no clue who will actually shoot at me. Sounds like fun to me.

He deserved what he got for fitting like that.

I'm just surprised someone in BRRC can actually fly a Proteus. Didn't they get kicked out of their own home lowsec system by EUNI a few months ago while EUNI was getting face stomped by two other corps?

PvP: Player versus Player. Miners are players. Gankers are players. they have contradictory existences and tend to find themselves confronting one another. Sounds like PvP to me m8.

Proof that can flippers do not need a criminal flag to die.

It's misleading to say a Proteus can't take out a mining barge, as if this were something new, or imply some sort of fault with CCP. So long as barges can field drone flights, Proteuses (Protii? Proteai?) can die. What makes the difference is the remote repping, and that's (loosely speaking) always been possible.

Haha.. this is why I love EVE.

Dude probably didn't know SD generates killmails now

Why the ridiculous spin on an extremely mundane outcome? Covert Proteus with ions complaining about not being able to down a barge with logistics? Which ship in the game can't tank a shitfit proteus with Logi?????Mittani.com i am disappoint, this article is EN24 level~

Shoot the drones you dumbass!

LOL Can Tipper thinks hes going to have a nice one sided fight against a foolish miner, then it turns out the miner had a 1 sided trap for him :)

Nope BRRC just went on a vacation after EUNI agreed to move their camp if BRRC ended the war.

slow news day? people say en24 is shit. Why do i care about this?

Epic fail, Eve-kill is down.this reminds me of my fabled battle barge in russian space...one year later, no one's killed it. (F-CON might remember).

Because it's funny.

Minning barges, the next PVP ships.

Shooting the drones might of helped.....Fuckin retard lolol

Adrel is an out of the way system in Essence, populated primarily by miners who slave away in belts, reaping a harvest of minerals that will inevitably be destroyed in some conflict or another. On October 4th, however, the miners had a bit more of a direct impact on the circle of life in New Eden. Jameson2011 is a member of the Black Rebel Rifter Club, an empire corporation that has made its name on being a general nuisance in Empire space. From piracy to can flipping, they pursue all forms of PvP action. 

Jameson2011 decided to do a bit of can flipping, an age-old pastime that may soon go the way of the dodo, in a cloaky Proteus. According to his story, there seemed to be a veritable bounty of opportunities in one of the belts of Adrel, but ‘all good things come to those who wait’ - so he lingered awhile, looking for the perfect opportunity.

Eventually it came, or so he thought. A single Procurer left in the belt, piloted by BeeCeeVee, with a jettisoned can next to him made for the perfect target. Jameson warped in, decloaked, and proceeded to flip the can into his possession. “[The Procurer] took his sweet time slowboating back to the can,” Jameson recounted when interviewed. After an interminable wait, the Procurer took the bait, flipping it back.

“He’s red! Oh joy of joys!” Jameson said, giving a bit of a play by play after the fact. The mining barge’s shields quickly disappeared. The Proteus’ blasters put him into deep armor. “This cannot possibly fail!” Jameson said to himself at the time. And then, it did:

“A Guardian warped in 55km off and started repairing [the Procurer]”. Indeed, it was a trap - and a well executed one at that. The situation drew on until it was clear that the Proteus was not going to be able to pull range away from the Procurer. Jameson2011 opted for the honorable way out: self destruction.

“He was a big meanie,” said BeeVeeCee, when asked about the trap. “He flipped my can, I flipped it back...he aggressed...and I talked him out of it.” Apparently, BeeVeeCee has made a bit of a routine out of killing random flippers and miners alike.

Perhaps, then, it is good that can flipping may soon become a defunct hobby within Eve Online. When a flipper in a Proteus can’t take out a mining barge, it might just be time to pull the plug.
