What a senseless, sensless waste of a unique ship in the hands of a complete idiot. Moving a priceless ship in an iteron V. At least the destruction of Alliance Tournament prize ships usually involves an impressive PvP brawl.An iteron. A fucking iteron.

Am I the only one that is disappointed that one of our other gankbros didn't manage to pick this up sooner? I mean, the fact that he made it to Jita from wherever the hell he came from surprises me.

Wirble is, I believe, C0nvicted's greatest highsec ganker to date. I check every 'Jita'-labelled kill on our killboards, solely to see what kind of stupid shit people will put in a T1 hauler or covops that day for Wirble to claim.

"A rarely seen ship, the Guardian Vexor, worth at least 100 Billion Isk (that’s enough to buy himself a titan) sitting prettily in the cargo. "How about some editorial fact checking? 100b is way off the mark.Here are the most recent sale threads I could find in a hurry:(1) https://forums.eveonline.com/d...December; sold for 55b(2) https://forums.eveonline.com/d...November; highest bid 51b, sold to highest bidder.(3) https://forums.eveonline.com/d...August; highest bid 50b, in-game offer of 60b accepted(4) https://forums.eveonline.com/d...August; highest bid 30b, in-game offer of 50b accepted.

What players say it's worth and what people actually say "deal" on isn't going to be the same. Players who own one and going to see a 30-60 bil offer and why will they refuse? Yes, if they held off they actually could get a lot more but people like money and that is still a large offer.

Moving a highly valuable cruiser around always going to be a bit of bitch because size. But honestly you think he least used a orca tanked up the eyeballs.

I think this is 2 in a row for "Put priceless ships into a hauler's cargohold, undisguised, and lose them to a gank."http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_de...

Does anyone else think that the gankee may not have realised how much the ship was now worth as he has been out of game for years apparently and maybe is beating himself up screaming "IT WAS WORTH HOW MUCH?!?!"?

It seems odd to me that a ship that will never see use has any in-game value at all. Any limited edition ship is just a gank magnet that will attract far more attention than its its rare bonuses can make up for, so its not like you'll see anyone flying around in them.In EVE, there's no other way to showcase collections so ownership alone is not really comparable to real world rarities like classic cars. Claiming that a ship that no-one will ever see has a value of 50-100b ISK makes about as much sense as $50 avatar items that will only ever be enjoyed by the purchaser.A fool and his money...

Correction, should be: "in the hands of two complete idiots"

I think the value just increased a bit.

Why are 400 year old guns worth a fortune when they are outclassed by pretty much any modern weapon?They are collectables, and people will pay for the bragging rights of saying "I have one" or just being able to have a very very expensive hanger ornament
Avatar
so you're basically saying it's worth more than 60 bil just because you think it is ? sorry but that's not how it works

This wasnt really about a CFC kill though was it. It was about a Guardian-Vexor kill. Who just happened to be killed by someone in the CFC.Pretty sure most of the ALOD posts are non-CFC kills.

I got one for 35 a year or two ago. They are going for about 60 atm...

(Editor's Note: This breaking news is sent to us by one of our new contributors, Ectweak, who doesn't yet have a TMC account. Only fifty Guardian-Vexors  were given out during an in-game event early in EVE's history (2003-2004), making them priceless collectors items.)

Jita – The Forge

Late on the evening of the apocalypse, a lone soldier going by the name of Wirblewind FROMAN took it upon himself to guard the docking area of the 4-4 station from unwary carebears and their “phat lewtz”. The day had gone quietly since his arrival in the notorious Forge trade hub, but Wirblewind wasn’t to be deterred. Scanning continuously, he had unwittingly passed on a gank of a Sarum Magnate that was carrying two PLEX. The gank only failed as the target was able to dock before FROMAN’s guns were able to activate.

About an hour later of scanning, Mr. FROMAN was getting bored, however he was not to be deterred, and would have “gone until downtime” if he couldn’t get a good gank. As he was scanning, he came across an Iteron V that had warped in and landed nearly on the docking radius. Upon scanning it’s cargo, he was surprised to find an interesting item in his cargohold. A rarely seen ship, the Guardian Vexor, worth at least 100 Billion Isk (that’s enough to buy himself a titan) sitting prettily in the cargo.  I was sitting in comms, drinking my whisky and listening to the chatter when I suddenly heard Wirblewind pipe up with a long string of expletives. I, among others, inquired to what the source of his irritation was (thinking he might have been ratting in a super-carrier, or some other nonsense and was about to die to some reds), when he paused, took a breath, and posted the following killmail.

No, that estimated value isn’t correct, and yes, the Guardian Vexor didn’t drop. Mr FROMAN was livid, raging about the loot tables and other tinfoil hattery, but at the same time, ecstatic about the fact that he had just one-shotted a tech 1 hauler worth over 70 billion isk.

According to the losing Pilot’s EVE-Who, he has not been playing this game for a number of years.

The moral of this story is, Ganking pays better than carebearing your nights away.
