Why there is no article on TheMittani about how PL lost a super few days ago (a Nyx, I believe) ?

Once again PL shows that they are only relevant in the meta game and when they can use a cyno.

Death to supercaps.

So this snowman guy was in a corp, and decided to leave because, "he was bored with FW", and fucks his corp up like that for no real reason. Charming fellow...

I just love how you can turn "We fleetwarped a titan out of a pos shield and killed it" into a 2 page fap fest of glory.Metagaming claims another victory. \o/

Easy.1. This was a first hand account from one of our writing staff2. When we try to talk to certain aspects of the EvE Universe we just get "HURRR DURRR GOON PROPAGANDA. NO INTERVIEW FOR YOU". The same people in the same breath bitch in our comments that we haven't covered what they've done. Sort of a catch 22 really....

Poor fellers can't catch a break. Last time I ran into them I smartbombed their talwars in NOL. They're even pretty chill too...

WTF - are you really expecting a medal or recommendation for your illoyality and treason? And as always for elite PL and friends - only attack if you blop 10:1 or better. Ridiculous!

RIP titan, good one +1

then again, PL can [put a cyno they can use pretty much everywhere except for highsec.

Thanks for killing him. he used his corp in a 0.0 alliance to get that titan . he told ppl to miner for it
Avatar
What a bunch of scumbags these players are.Screws over his old corp just to get on a titan kill?And he thinks every1 is going to slap him on the back for being a prick.
Avatar
but if you mine the minerals then it's free right?
Avatar
Well, you can always ask the guy (from PL) who lost it. Or are they (PL) also "hurrr durrr goon propaganda" oriented?
Avatar
Wow !! did MirrorGod really wrote an article about himself with his TEST alt on Mittani.com ? Really ? Such a megalomaniac schyzo !
Avatar
This is news worthy?
Avatar
while you sure make clear what kind of preparation had gone into this kill, the fact that it was only possible because the pilot was afk AND his buddy betrayed him ... tbh, i dont think that kill is something one should brag about.

Just a classic case of asset reallocation, which if done right is very profitable. If someone were to break into your home and steal your stuff because you gave them a key, who would be the one to blame? Would it be you who made a poor judgement call? Or the other guy who is now enjoying your stuff..... I would say the former. As a proud member of an asset reallocation corp, I say nice one, next time steal it!
Avatar
You want to get pay for it right ? he didnt do that he build it kick eveyone and left the alliance when it was done :)

"shitheel" doesn't even cover half of it! =)

Eve is a great game because it allows you freedom of choice, because both options of being honourable/nice/good and being dishonourable/unpleasant/evil are equally valid. Betraying friends is viable and is not restricted by game mechanics - having said that betraying corps mates etc. still makes you a vile little shit but it is entirely your own choice.

And if it had been what you propose sperglords like you would be bitching in the comments about a content-less article.Some people appreciate the backstory leading up to events- if you don't, then stick to fucking twitter or something and enjoy 140 characters of boring.

Right and the PL Titan death actually had a good story with it and an actual fight, not this hey i can haz fleetz warpz lolz i'm so uber crap.
Avatar
he's mad, because he has to mine for minerals for his titan.If I mines it, it's free?
Avatar
Yeah I get that it's eve, but it's one thing scamming idiots or ganking morons and a whole other thing screwing the guys you play with and were part of. I'm not talking about joining a corp to awox or as a scam, but about being a real part of a corp, then leaving for mundane reasons (bored of FW) and not feeling bad for screwing them. It's like goons screwing other goons,, but the smaller scale makes it even worse.

Doesn't surprise me that ex MTCU guys would do something like this, those guys are full on retards
Avatar
So write the story up and submit it, a PL titan dying is in fact news, its just news that NOBODY decided to send to any news agency for print. Who's fault is that?
Avatar
The titan pilots that died hasn't logged on at all since he died v0v, probably because he died like a retard.
Avatar
Because killing afk titan without PL would have been impossible.

So much hate on PLThese guys kill supers, which lets face it, everyone wants super kills on their KB

AHAHAHA NO CRY PLS

Yeah what a bunch of assholes they are for blowing up a ship the owner was planning on using to scam someone the value of the ship. The nerve of them thinking it would be fun to blow up a titan that the owner screwed over tons of players over on ore payouts from mining to practically pay nothing for the titan. How dare they!

Keep trying mate, I have a feeling that your first non-shit post is just around the corner.

WoW has lost a lot of subscribers recently m8, they need help(ps suck your dad's dick wolol)

Sadly, this wasn't it. But keep trying, I know you can do it.

I feel bad for Intaki :(

Time after time I get disappointed how most of the EVE players make their game boring shit. Instead of ringing mad batphone, you could have just tried to kill it by yourselves. Yeah, it of course could have gone sideways, but what is actually funnier, getting just some kill or having a good fight even if you lost it?It's risk vs reward in PVP too, the reward just is not isk.

Good thing you didn't. Its demise was more entertaining.

"Our first thought was to try and contact the Amarrians to form a fleet to attract his attention. However, it being mid-week, this would be a hard task. "Seems like you have a lot of friends -- but not many in the Amarr Militia. Amarr militia (read: Fweddit/In Exile) could have easily formed up a distraction fleet (whether they knew it or not) in the middle of the week.Maybe next time!

I can't hold...all these tears

He wasn't AFK, He logged in to try and scam my alt, only it was a setup. Then he was stupid enough to take a fleet warp.This =/= AFK. It equals clueless retard who deserves to lose his ship as it was built pure shithattery.Gf

I write this with adrenaline still pumping through my veins. Fifteen minutes ago, a week long plan to kill this Titan finally came to fruition. Though there were many points in which I could have just said “fuck it” and left, oh boy, am I glad I didn’t. This is a rare thing: the full story of the death of a Titan, from concept to execution.

[]

AN OLD CONTACT EMERGES

This story starts like many others - a phone call, an email, or in my case a conversation invite from my good friend Snowman1. I’ve known snowman for around 5 years now, ever since we were both in the corporation Merchants Trade Consortium. He told me he was bored with Minmatar Faction Warfare and wanted to come play in 0.0. As a farewell gift, he also wanted to kill his CEO’s Titan. He needed my help.

So what did I have at hand?

First, Snowman told me he had recently been given POS fueling rights. This would also allow him to turn off POS shields and make the Titan within completely vulnerable. That's almost everything we need: it means we can catch the Titan, leaving it pointed and ready to be hammered by any force I decide to bring along. I started looking around for a suitable entity with enough firepower to turn a Leviathan into powder. Luckily for me, my own alliance, TEST, was at this point staging in HED. HED is only two Titan midpoints from Arzad, meaning that I could invite my own alliance along to kill this behemoth. Perfect.

So, on Friday the 3rd, I get both midpoints manned with cynos, get a Phobos into Arzad, and get snowman ready to drop the shields. Perfect. Only one thing left: how do we get Eperor to log on?

I learned a few things about Eperor. Apparently he liked doing two things with his Titan: logging it on when the Amarrian FW fleet up (to show them he means business) and leaving it logged in while AFK. There was a third avenue for victory: Snowman had been talking with his CEO about “selling” his Leviathan to a buyer and scamming him for the money. If necessary, we could use this angle to get the Titan online; however, we would save it for emergencies only.

With all these things in place, the worst thing happened.

Hey guys

Just an update.

As previously planned between myself and Shadoo, as of midnight eve tonight PL will be reset by the HBC. These guys are still our friends but this is best for both parties.

Please do not be dumb in low sec with caps pl will kill you.

I love you Shadoo.

#### SENT BY Sort Dragon to All online hbc @ 2013-05-03 21:00:30 EVE Time ####

Welp.

My two days of planning had been for naught if I couldn’t get this Titan kill in the next few hours. With one hour to go before the reset, I frantically messaged ranger64511, a TEST capital FC, trying to get him to form up anything to kill this Titan. Once again, it slipped through my fingers. Snowman sent me this:

[ 2013.05.03 22:49:36 ] snowman1 > Torenc > i go to sleep

The Titan had gone to bed. Plan aborted.

I talked to ranger and he informed me he would look into doing it over the next week if I could give him as much information as possible. I went to bed.

THE NEXT DAY

So: I logged back into Targie after work around 22:00 EVE time, and the biggest blow to my plan had just been announced.

During TEST’s SotA, BoodaBooda had removed TEST from the HBC, effectively ending any chance of having TEST join in the slaughter of my innocent Titan. It seemed that the plan was going to have to be abandoned again. Thoroughly disappointed, I went to bed once more.

Hi, My name is Targie. I've done everything from High-sec wars, to Low sec Pirating; from Wormholes to 0.0 wars. I'm currently in TEST alliance, where I annoy my corp. mates with bad stories. Follow me on twitter . @TargieMcRed for article updates.
