Well done for writing a well researched article on the story! I enjoyed reading it.As a Director of both Usurper Alliance and Cosmic Cimmerians at the time this theft happened, I can correct the amount stolen to actually 10-20 billion (maybe less). Most of which was POS Towers, POS Modules, POS Fuel, Moon Goo, and about 1 or 2 Billion ISK from the POS Wallet (He was a POS Director for the alliance and had no access to the main wallets). Also he stole a POS on a contested moon and gave it to an enemy we had been fighting.As TJ said, it was a Usurper Black Ops bridge of subcaps and a Usurper Carrier with a HIC in the Ship Hanger. TJ then switched from the bomber to the HIC and got the tackle on the Rag while another bomber pilot went to the station to get a HIC he had left over from the "invasion op." After the Bridge went down I switched from the Panther to the Archon and jumped in.It was a beautifully planned and executed attack, and I can think of no better way to burn a spy. The pilots of Alexander have one person to thank for the over 100 billion ISK in losses they have suffered in the past month at the hands of Usurper and that makes all of us very happy.

A very well executed plan, one of the best I've read on Eve. Must have been heart attack city until the Titan got popped haha

So what happened to the Alexia Sapphira dude from the beginning?

Coming from the spy, I LOVE THE STORY. Great work Marlona. And no he didn't steal 200bil but lets all be honest even if Alexia stole 1bil from any corp in EVE I'm very sure the corp would want & seek revenge.Great Read Well Done.

Very nice write up, Thanks for taking the time to get the whole picture from all parties. Also Nice job to Usurper and Horn Well Done lads.

I found it all very amusing, myself... Although I did feel sorrow for the SOA titan pilot, the original intention for seeding a spy into SOA was take ME out, which they failed at... AGAIN. I'm sure they will continue to try, although the titan loss was merely luck for Usurper, and bad judgement for SOA. Although, again, without Ninja Unicorns on the field I doubt the titan would have ever been lost.Was a pity I missed the fight, although clearly me not being present and unable to be killed has left a bile-tasting bitterness to continue for Usurper members that had been expecting me on the field (which can be sited from eve-mails I have since received from Usurper members, including QuikEze himself. Thanks Fire!) ;)Also, I ALMOST agree with Abbadon21 on the theft amounts... But, don't forget the ship replacement programs cruisers and battlecruisers, the mineral stockpiles, blueprint originals and copies, the second POS... Oh, and the Machariel. It was certainly not 200 billion worth, and I don't know where that was cited from... My exact term when describing it to SOA members was "a lot". :D

I'm still around, never go too far.
Avatar
Thanks for the kudos Selucid, just a shame it went down this way.
Avatar
Agree with Abbadon here, that was a great article.
Avatar
It was actually a small POS and associated modules, fuel, mined minerals etc, about 200Misk from the POS fuel wallet and 20 Vexors.Perhaps the titan pilot could ask him for one of the Vexors as compensation.
Avatar
If that's all you think that I took Imo, then I did my job so, so well... ;)
Avatar
Selucid and SOA has allways been a class act. Sounds like crazy execution from USURP and HORN. I might be biased towards SOA but it doesnt seem like revenge to me when your target is an individual inside the corp, and largely unaffected, keep trying! :D Still, titan kill is a titan kill.
Avatar
Kudos to both leaders for being so majestic about it all. :)
Avatar
I am quite happy to donate the entire proceedings of stolen worth taken from CCIM to the purchase of a new titan for the SOA victim. :)

You truly are a dirt bag Alexia. You know that you shouldn't hatching plans to RIP OFF ALEX now after there unfortunate loss on the weekend. We now from experience that's what your doing right now. Take warning ALEX with him in your alliance a titan is only the start of your losses, the rest mightn't be in battle either, When that happens Look to the you who.
Avatar
His time will come. And that will be a story worth telling I can promise.

Sell your Jump freighter then and give him the isk from that.If you actually really cared about an the Titan pilot.I'm pretty sure I know which way your going to go though, everyone does. Selfish One.

i feel bad for alexander, they are constantly just getting smashed, and now mostly just dock up when we roll through... and now this. We'll be gentle next time guys :-)

As a low ranking member you had no access to your rather thin dream list of loot.Stop trying to draw the lime light from the team that got the kill and the gallant titan pilot... It's pathetic.

Yes, I'm sorry. Congratulations Ninja Unicorns, job well done!

You talk so much rubbish sometimes. Lol
Avatar
Really? That's the best you've got? Lol that's more than slightly pathetic! I wouldn't take anything from SOA, they don't deserve it, unlike some others from the past... Besides, been jumping far more valuable assets for SOA than anything Usurper ever had all over the universe... Get over it! :)
Avatar
I am in agreement here. I am completely unaffected by the Titan loss, it does however sadden my that the Titan was taken down. Although the pilot and I have already spoken, he holds no ill-will and is actually jovial about it! I am more than happy to commit to assisting him in replacing the ship.
Avatar
Is that right give unending 10+ bil then look after ya corpies it is ur fault he lost it we would have never been there if it was not for ur great work TY for that btw
Avatar
sounds about right
Avatar
The title of this article ishould be "Alexia Sapphira owns Cosmic Cimmerians yet again". Again, the titan is a small sacrifice for a desired outcome and while i feel sorry for owner it is a trivial loss for us. Imagine the wealth I've have and double it so.... sorry, we can replace a titan anytime but the Cosmic Cimmerians can never live down failing to get me ;)

Although people's overwhelming desire to BE Alexia is heartwarming, I didn't post the previous post. And their spelling is atrocious! Not to say I don't agree wholeheartedly with said post! :D

Agreed, Terraniel. Took the words right out of my mouth. :)
Avatar
More like Usurper already looks bad enough, calling in another alliance to fight their battles for them, while missing the main point of why they actually seeded a spy into SOA in the first place. The titan would never have been lost if Ninja Unicorns weren't on the line to finish the job your own alliance couldn't. Kudos to Ninja Unicorns, ghost riders or not... At the end of the day, it was them that sealed the kill... You just handed it over to them when you couldn't do the job yourselves. :)
Avatar
LMAO! You've outdone yourself this time! I don't know WHERE or WHO is passing you information, but they MUST be drunk... Like, ALL THE TIME! Allow me to set you straight:- I've never been married, I'm engaged. Nobody has left anyone. My partner and our children live together quite happily.- I HAVE a job... Hell, I ACTUALLY have two.- I HAVE friends... Friends IN REAL LIFE as well as Eve... You might want to try it sometime! That's ACTUALLY where I was while the titan got taken down... You know, socialising, out at the movies with my fiance and friends. But you wouldn't know what that's like, would you? You don't have friends outside of Usurper (not that I blame the world for that).- I'll happily have you know that, even though I wasn't going to say anything about it, I've had a plant inside Usurper for quite some time. Hell, they even BOUGHT the Mach off me that I took when I left! Funny how members of your OWN ALLIANCE bought stolen gear back from it's members!Next time you want to lecture someone on what you THINK you know, come see me... I'll school you again! ;)

Suicide not an option then I take it?????

I love how the only way you can TRY to get under someone's skin is by assuming what their personal life is like, sadly for you, you got it all wrong!If anyone is the waste of space it would have to be you, you can't even catch Alexia in EVE so you have to kill his starter Ship because it's the only thing you can get of his.It's Douche bags like you that make society look like crap, not Alexia!

Have you considered it? If not maybe you should seriously start thinking about it :)

Maybe for you, if you'd care to try it? Or, you know, you could always do what you HAVE been doing for 2 years now... Unsuccessfully chasing me down to no avail! lol :)

Quikeze have you considered suicide? do us all a favour and go play in traffic!

Well, it's kinda typical of Usurper, Diff... They can't really hit a moving target, so cyno noob-ships and titans make perfect targets for them! lol They didn't really like to showcase that, before Ninja Unicorns took out the SOA titan, SOA was wiping the floor with them in a massive way without really breaking a sweat... And then, they decided to move out and run for the hills, only to have one of their capitals get stuck in station! If SOA hadn't been so over-ambitious, the titan would probably never have been on the field. But in all honesty, I think he was due to lose one anyways... TIME FOR UPGRADES! lolI'd like to thank Usurper though, for their continued support in funding the new SOA titan, while our killboard remains remarkably unblemished by the incident. :)

Once again, REALLY? LOL! I like how cowardly and gutless gimps love to hide behind the anonymity of the internet with falsified names, while attempting slander that has no real merit in the real world... And then you wake up, and take your hand off it. I have a fiance, not a gf. And all my children look like me, thankfully. If they looked like you, I'm pretty sure they would hang themselves. If you think this banter bothers me at all, it doesn't... It makes you look petty and unintelligent, and proves to the world why Usurper DESERVED to have their assets lost to them. Ok? Next question! :)

You REALLY have nothing better to do with your life, do you? lol

Did it take you a lot of processing power in that defective grey matter you own, to learn how to add "Dude" to the front of that, and some spacing?1) Real friends let YOU cum inside THEM! Kinda like how I fucked Usurper, I guess... lol2) I'm sure I'd be getting paid a lot more if I was giving head. Just the same, I tend to receive it (often), more than I give it (never... well, maybe just for corpies!) ;)
Avatar
Al3xand3r had to call in Evoke during the Usurper incursion, since Al3x doesn't fight off the EF station. You needed them to reinforce the ONE POS that you guys were able to take out. and had them on call the entire time... The first thing we heard from our spy every time we reinforced a POS. "They've just contacted Evoke."

you mad bro? XD

The fact that he has to put bullet points to explain that he is not a loser, is really strange isn't it Quik?
Avatar
Not in the slightest... I still have some of CCIM's assets to sell left over, even after the titan donation. And Usurper STILL has not managed to kill me... Even while I was ratting last night in system right next to where there was a 9 man fleet roaming through... :)
Avatar
You hang around Islington, looking at guys? Wow... You're one sick puppy!

I was rebuking Quikeze's own bullet points in a similar fashion... Clearly you were never part of a formal debating team... Perhaps not even finishing the basic schooling system, I'm guessing?
Avatar
What makes me smile most is that, while it takes an entire alliance of Usurper clowns to try and insult me on here, I am single-handedly mopping up all your bullshit and making you look even more stupid on here, in real life... While ALSO single-handedly making you look stupid in EVE with your incompetence and inability to catch a single person... Even while they continue to act unhindered and unabated, doing what they have always done... I go ratting, I made jumps with the capitals... Hell, I even just went auto-piloting across 20 systems to Jita in a frigate the other night, just to prove that I could... But hey, that's the way it's kinda ALWAYS been... I LOVE how stupid you guys look, on such a consistent level! Kudos! :)
Avatar
We didn't have to call in anyone... Evoke reinforced one of your POS's, while we reinforced the other two... I know: I was there, leading the fleet that did it in my dread. SOA then came back the next day, and blew up one of the POS's (which Evoke wasn't present for, mind you), while you had the few lowly skulking Usurper members hiding in a station... Rote attempted a few bombing runs on your behalf, which didn't even put a scratch on the battleship fleet... But not a single Usurper member came to defend their own tower... Pathetic! IF you HAD wanted me as much as you said, then your SPY would have given you the information to take me out then... Only issue was, I kept it closed loop, and dropped the dread with only a few people that were closely trusted. That's the same reason that SOA knows not to fight you out in the open when you are fielding cyno hotdrop ships to call in your buddy alliance to finish jobs for you... It's called flying smart, you should learn it sometime! ;)

If you are sitting there waiting for another post, realize something is wrong. You're involvement in that story seems minimal to a casual reader, yet you have made more than 50% of the posts here. No way am I putting my name down, I don’t want you obsessed with my character or corp.

Me, obsessed? I'm not the one still chasing a corp thief unsuccessfully 2 years later! Nor am I getting banned for posting hurt and distasteful emo-rage posts, all of which I find amusing, as they have absolutely nothing to use against me but falsified personal info. Also, I am a disqus member, the notifications when someone posts are sent directly to my mobile... Get with the times! Lol Also, I am involved in majority of posts here because, guess what - The story is primarily about me! Can't say I don't love all the attention and drama though... All these mixed emotions, and angst... I live for this shit! :D

Yea something is seriously wrong with you guy. From what I read the the story isn't primarily about you. Fly safe and peace out.

I'm in the first few lines, the story is titled "Titan Down: Vengeance Over Past Theft", meaning MY theft, and MY alliance's titan... Hell, there is a picture of ME halfway down the first page... So yeah, nothing wrong with me, just telling it as it is. But thank you for gratifying my constant need to rectify people's misinformation, it's very endearing that people consistently give me the chance to invalidate their posts. :)

Not according to Alexia, :) For some reason he can't admit that we set that up quite well.Is that because he lacks the personal confidence to admit to himself that Usurper may be better at EVE then he believes. I'm sure he will reply yet again and to the Awesome EVE community that he may very well have indicated small issues with self esteem/confidence.
Avatar
Your objective - You failed. I'm still here. Untouched. As always.No self esteem or confidence issues whatsoever. I feel better than ever, comforted by the fact the even Usurpers wins are fails in some small way. Unsatisfied with a Titan kill, here you are, still attempting to compensate for your inability to do what you set out to in the first place... Kill me.You didn't "set anything up"... A spy picked up on a transmission in a lucky break, and passed it along to another alliance, so that they could kill the target for you.What you ATTEMPTED to set up was to kill me. You failed. Terribly. And give me a massive ego boost in the process, feeding my need for affection. :)Usurper still suck at EVE. They did before, they still do now. They always have, to be quite honest. They are nothing special, and calling in Ninja Unicorns to finalise a kill they couldn't, just enforces that. So, enjoy YOUR lowered self esteem... And please, continue to feed my need to rebuke! :DFor a good read on the original theft, try:https://truestories.eveonline....

Yes great write-up of a great kill. I love getting the story behind the killmail and the comments fill the story in nicely. The actions of an narcissistic petty thief leads to a titan loss years later... a great example of the EVE butterfly effect in action.
Avatar
This kill has inspired me to re-sub to EVE.

In a game of revenge, sometimes the innocent are caught in the crossfire. This is especially true for a revenge plot two years in the making.

About a year ago, a pilot named Alexia Sapphira contacted Selucid, CEO of Sons Of Alexander and leader of AL3XAND3R alliance. He had approached Selucid with the desire to join a corporation that shared the same time zone of activity (Australian) he was in. While the alliance had a more laid back approach to the game, they were fierce nonetheless. Adding another active player to the roster seemed only beneficial.

There was, however, one critical piece of baggage Selucid would have to consider. Alexia Sapphira had explained upfront that eight months earlier he was in a corporation called Cosmic Cimmerians which, at the time, was a member of Usurper. Not the current Usurper alliance you see now, but a previous version. Alexia went on to explain that he had stolen 200 billion in assets from Cosmic Cimmerians, and they were most likely after him to this day. Selucid accepted Alexia into the corporation with no roles. Given the laid back and fun attitude the alliance had, a thief with no roles shouldn't pose any kind of real threat.

Interestingly enough, if you look at the event history of Usurper on dotlan maps you will see that Alexia left/was kicked on 2011.08.28, and about two months later - on 2011.10.20 - Cosmic Cimmerians left the alliance. With the 200 billion in assets gone, it appears they looked for a fresh start in The G0dfathers alliance. Of course, going through a rebuilding phase does not mean you forget the past. Around mid-July of last year they managed to reopen Usurper. They wanted revenge. No matter how long it would take.

MOTIVATION: ESTABLISHED

Flash forward to 2013.02.07. The victims of the 200 billion ISK theft had finally managed to pull off a critical step in their plan. In a fatal mistake, one of the directors of Sons of Alexander corporation blindly accepted a pilot by the name of QuikEze whose application simply stated he was a friend of one of their corporation members. Guess who they claimed was their friend? None other than Alexia Sapphira himself.

[]

For about two months QuikEze was a standup recruit. He was on comms, in fleets, doing his part all in the name of the AL3XAND3R alliance. Two weeks ago the alliance saw a new face show up in town. The Usurper alliance had decided to invade. Battles raged back and forth with both sides giving as good as they got. Towers on both sides were being reinforced. Good old-fashioned small gang PvP.

Just before this past weekend, Usurper decided to leave the pocket in Syndicate they based out of, with both sides having about the same success in combat against each other. Selucid noticed a neutral alt opening cynos for three Usurper carriers to jump in and dock at the EF-F36 station in Syndicate.

Selucid > “I noticed the Usurper Neut Alt Drake Osmosis cyno'ing in 3 carriers, so thought i would fuck with them and started bubbling the station with dictor bubbles. Anyways 2 of 3 carriers were able to jump out, however Astronavis was left behind, knowing he is a bit more derpy than the rest of them i continued to fuck with them.”

I have been exploding internet spaceships since 2005. While I do love me a good large scale fight, I thoroughly enjoy small scale PvP as well.
