People say, "Don't shoot shuttles! They're unarmed!"This is why I pop them in an instant.

Somehow I have a hard time believing that it was already replaced. Under what grounds would his petition merit reimbursement?

@already replaced, I call extreme and utter bullshit. Any dev or GM who tried that would get fired.

lol already replaced, the guys hurting and clearly full of shit, if he's not then this is fucking bollocks of the highest degree

Replaced because of 20 accounts? Bullship!

Only if his account(s) were hacked.

Indeed. The timing was...suspect. Though it could very well have been the 'russains', who bear no love for this site in general.

If he was being cautious before jumping, doesn't sound hacked

"Didn't want those blueprints anyways."

Hmm. I think this kill is smell like hell. Okay, here we have a guy, a 2011 character with the kind of isk to be able to buy 200+ billions worth of BPOs. Yeah right. He then decided that running this package of blueprints through nullsec in a frigate with no MWD, no cloak - in fact NO means of escape and evasion whatsoever - is a good idea. Yeah right.I say this guy WANTED to be popped. In fact, I wouldnt be surprised if all the characters on this killmail is one and the same real life person, or at least close RL friends. Its called whitewashing of botted isk.

Finally, we know what sort of "angry emails to CCP" -A- leadership was referring to in their mid-October alliance meeting:"To whom it may concern:Many of our members run more than 20 accounts; however, we haven't gotten our Tengu skillpoints back. What gives?-Sincerely, Makalu"

Time to make calls to CCP internal affairs. You don't reimburse this just because multiple accounts.

Russians. Surely they lurk behind every corner in nullsec. It is likely that a majority of those were indeed copies. There were enough originals to make a difference though.
Avatar
The Wiz called, he says he gets back every ship he loses, too ;)Yeah, this one is BS. Standard "I have a friend at CCP so .." bullshit.You should be reporting that he's butthurt enough to make up any excuse.
Avatar
Anyone contact CCP's internal division to ask them to investigate his claims they were all replaced when they clearly shouldn't be?

You will loose skillpoints also when your clone is not up to date. Look up in interwebs (Google) the actual mechanic of skillpoint loosing.

Lookit lookit.. DAWWWWWWWWW <3<3<3Lil' Tribal Band dude just killed almost 3 titans all by himself! They grow up so fast! <3<3<3

API verified or not, surely some of those blueprints must be copies... there are three Hulk BPOs listed on the killmail...

Makasoni and crew are pro at high risk/reward camps and do it all the time, give him a little credit

Nice story. Those russians told him: THIS LOSS DID NOT HAPPEN! FIX IT! MAKE A STORY!
Avatar
high risk/reward would mean not having a falcon to jam out pesky t1 frigs who are a danger to his sabre

While this is true, it has more to do with the lose of skill points from dieing in a tech 3 sttat cruiser.

My suspicion is that stewie is an awoxer trying to grief his own alliance's killboards. I've come across another loss like this done by an awoxer named suxar who got his corp thrown out of a null-sec alliance by screwing with the killboard stats. You'll notice that eve-kill and battleclinic handle bpo/bpc differently in this other example:http://eve.battleclinic.com/ki... http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_de...

You'd think with 20 accounts he could have come up with a better ship to haul it in

Bingo... people should take a step back, breathe deep and look reasonably at what is being carried on these high isk BP tallies. No way in hell there were 3 hulk BPOs on that ship.

 

Camping is a profession as old, and as denigrated, as prostitution in EVE Online. From highsec gankers to lowsec pirates and nullsec pipe cleaners, campers are found in every aspect of EVE Online. For those with an itch to experience some non-consensual PVP, camping is often the easiest way to go. Few, however, strike it rich with such a casual pasttime as makasoni, of Quantum Link Company (Tribal Band alliance), did last night.

[]

‘It was the Unicorn of kills,” makasoni said when I interviewed him briefly on the kill. “We were camping like normal in a sabre/falcon combo, just chilling.” They had already had some pretty good luck, popping an Imicus and a Viator that were hauling skillbooks and BPCs. Then, the Atron appeared.

“He was being cautious. He wasn’t sure about jumping the gate, it seemed. Then he went for it. I decloaked when he did and hit my bubble. Dual webs from my Sabre meant he was going nowhere,” makasoni said of the actual engagement. Simple as that, an Atron carrying an estimated 200 billion ISK worth of blueprints suffered an ignominious death.

IT’S ALREADY REPLACED...?

The funny thing is, stewie Zanjoahir isn’t really bothered by the loss. A member of the SOLAR Citizens alliance, stewie claims that the loss was replaced after he opened up a convo with someone from CCP:

“I woke up [after the loss], opened up a convo with them, and a few hours later everything was returned,” stewie claimed in a short interview. When asked why CCP would do such a thing, he said “well, what can I say, I’m running over 20 accounts,” seeming to imply that CCP naturally takes care of high rollers of stewie’s caliber.

When pushed for some details regarding this alleged conversation with CCP, stewie swiftly clammed up by order of his Russian superiors in SOLAR:

[ 2012.10.22 16:01:23 ] Marc Scaurus > who did you open up a convo with?
[ 2012.10.22 16:02:14 ] stewie Zanjoahir > why dose it matter ?
[ 2012.10.22 16:03:14 ] Marc Scaurus > just getting the full story :)
[ 2012.10.22 16:03:36 ] Marc Scaurus > was it a GM or an actual CCP dev?
[ 2012.10.22 16:04:45 ] stewie Zanjoahir > yer man i've been adivsed to stop talking to you sorry.
[ 2012.10.22 16:05:16 ] Marc Scaurus > advised by whom?
[ 2012.10.22 16:05:50 ] stewie Zanjoahir > by the russains.

While stewie may be a bit delusional (he also claimed that the ship was carrying ‘90% copies’ rather than the quantity listed on the API verified killmail), the drop certainly isn’t. makasoni has yet to complete a total inventory of the windfall, but was able to confirm that the drop listed on eve-kill was accurate. 

For every person out there complaining as to why those evil campers had to shoot their untanked Atron - this is why. You never know what those little ships might be carrying.

KILLMAIL
