Funny thing, in 319, we had a Titan jump instead of bridge directly into a ton of anchored bubbles on the station undock during a station camp. AAA being the elite PVP warriors they are, decided it was a trap and stood their fleet down instead of even trying to kill it.

Goon superstition holds that any good campaign must start with a welp, so this is a favorable portent for us. ;)

Suddenly Knerf's Proteus kill doesn't seem like such a big deal now eh?

Wait, START of the campaign? What have you been doing for the last month?

"Start", "relatively early in the campaign", who's keeping track, really.

Starting a long campaign against a coalition of people that not only fight back, but actually do well?

Even if it is a trap you have a Titan Bubbled, commit your god damned ships.

Ignore the asshats. We all make mistakes. Just so happens this was a rather large one. Sorry to the pilot for the loss.

It is hilarious, but 'awesomesauce' is some terrible garbage, as is +1. Don't do that again.

'The single biggest killer of Titans in Eve Online remains the 'Jump To' button. NCdot responded quickly to another such error and took out a RAZOR Erebus.' --- I think you will find that the button isnt the cause, its the A.D.D itdiots not reading before they click it. Goons are dead, they just dont know it yet. Actually we think 'The Fail-tani' does.

Don't post like this again. 'Nevar' isn't funny any more than 'Moar', and an uncommented LOL is never acceptable.

Is there a reason we didn't credit the artist? This was just a silly little comic, but that person's other work is seriously neat (very polished) and I think people would enjoy looking at it.

You're going to give yourself a heart attack long before you're able to correct the spelling of everyone on the internet. Just sayin', it might not be the best use of your time.

comic looks pretty accurate as to how the titan pilot would react.
Avatar
I remember when the same thing happened to Zarks. He was amazingly calm about it at the time, considering the circumstances. But calm seems to be his trademark. I hope the Razor pilot was able to show similar aplomb under what was no doubt a very trying moment in his career. And, if not, who can blame him?I think the jump/bridge button thing is CCPs only viable plan at the moment to reduce the number of titans.

Hi, that would be me [ign Lise Kiel]I don't usually do comics so here's a shameless plug to my other stuff: tabnir.deviantart.com

The illustration rocks! I have personally seen this happen a few times to titan pilots. Good job to NC. for being able to capitalize on this pilot's mistake.
Avatar
And DBRB had an opportunity to tell some stories of his own titan fails. Not that he needs a reason for long monologues :D

For those of you League of Legends players that remember the Lunar Festival art competition that Riot did, this one was Espaa's: http://tabnir.deviantart.com/g...One of my personal favorites. Don't miss Mundo and Fizz in the bottom right - that's my favorite touch.

It's muscle memory.When you spend months or years clicking the same button over and over, you don't read the label anymore. I know I don't. I'd go mad if I forced myself to read every button and label in eve.
Avatar
Don't say fail. This fit was bad because it was an old tracking BLAP fit. I will probably ask grath to do and ALOD on this instead of me.
Avatar
that comic was comedy gold. i hope to see many more of a similar quality! :)
Avatar
Supercarrier Darwinism at its finest :D, I'm sure this will be replaced very quickly though. Great comic too.
Avatar
i stay saying fail, because i saw the fucker melting like it was butter. CFC already had 3 triage carrier on the field and more to come. But with a non-existing tank, triage does shit. for bridging i should have had a cyno, and a full tank fitted. no excuses.i dont blame him for hitting the wrong button, i do blame him for bridging with that fit.
Avatar
great job on the comic. 10/10
Avatar
Well, I guess this campaign has officially had it's sacrifice to the whelp gods now.
Avatar
Not that long ago, before I won Eve, killboards were buggy pieces of shit that no one in their right minds actually cared about.

so hes trying to be famous... en 24 is also a goons product

Did anyone hear what happened in QPO tonight? http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_de...
Avatar
I'm wondering if this fit will cause it to not be reimbursed.
Avatar
CCP should make it even funnier and just have a button that randomly makes you jump or bridge.
Avatar
It's already posted and spotlighted. Also, don't spam identical comments across multiple threads (I suspect you'll be banned as soon as an admin comes online)
Avatar
Nope, it will not be "reimbursed", however, a "replacement" is already in the works.

Then join TEST! This is pretty much a slice of our forums. That comic in particular was regarding Beffah's titan slip up, hence the lipstick.

The single biggest killer of Titans in Eve Online remains the 'Jump To' button. NCdot responded quickly to another such error and took out a RAZOR Erebus.

 

daves dream > We were hotdropping a fleet of 25-ish. I jumped instead of bridging. They burned a cyno faster than we could and I couldn't get my fleet to Y-W fast enough.
daves dream > We got a few carriers in, but not enough to hold reps.

 

The lossmail can be found here.

 

Had the Titan been fit with a tank, it may have survived long enough for support carriers to arrive; untanked it was rapidly destroyed before word got out.
