Titan Bridge Fail -video-

Posted in Uncategorized on December 6, 2010 by Gigis

I am lead to believe from the comments on the youtube page that this was BLAST attempting to execute a Titan bridge…  It didn’t go as planned…

Enemy for Life

Posted in General Asshattery on December 6, 2010 by Gigis

I have decided to make my ninjaing a more social experiance.  I have, therefore, relocated myself near Dodixie so that I can assist and be assisted by the other dishonourable of New Eden.  But this post is not about that…  This post is about Shawn Amyotte.

I found Shawn mining into a can in Algogille and swiftly relocated his ore into a can of mine.  The following private convo ensued:

Gigis Nooj > what can I do for you?

Shawn Amyotte > Why’d you steal my shit?

Gigis Nooj > I am mining

Shawn Amyotte > You know I’m coming back to kill you now.

Gigis Nooj > okay

Gigis Nooj > mine for me some more

Shawn Amyotte > Ya mining isn’t stealing someone elses hard work asshole

Gigis Nooj > hard work is bringing it back to the station

Gigis Nooj > when you put it in a can it is a donation to me

Shawn Amyotte > Ya but now you’ve made yourself a free kill for me

Shawn Amyotte > I’ll just get it all back and get to pod you lolz

Shawn Amyotte > later

At this point he warps off to a gate and leaves local.  Minutes pass and the aggro timer gets to 2 minutes as he arrives back in local.  ACatalyst warps to zero on the can and starts shooting me. He is quickly brought to half hull.

Gigis Nooj > how mush isk do you have?

Shawn Amyotte > dood you’re just an asshole

Gigis Nooj > how so?

Shawn Amyotte > you like picking on noobs

Shawn Amyotte > where I’m from it’s called bullying

Gigis Nooj > I like picking on people that mine into cans

Gigis Nooj > where I come from its called lazy

Shawn Amyotte > it’s called making money to buy new stuff

Gigis Nooj > how will you make better money? losing your ship?  or running ore to the station?

Shawn Amyotte > you’re just making me take longer to get anywhere in the game, don’t worry I’ve already signed up for a year and I’ll be getting ready to handle you that whole time.

Gigis Nooj > ooooh  so it’s going to be a vendetta?

Gigis Nooj > going to hunt me down later?

Shawn Amyotte > no a slaughter I’m going to hunt you every day until you cancel your account

Gigis Nooj > fantastic!!

Shawn Amyotte > now run along and bug someone else while I prepare

Gigis Nooj > ok so I’m going to kill your ship and then I’m going to blow up your ore

Gigis Nooj > sound good?

Shawn Amyotte > I would expect no less from a coward

Gigis Nooj > okay

Shawn Amyotte > have at it loser

Gigis Nooj > that seems like we are on the same page

Shawn shortly exploded and warped out of system again. We will see how his preparations are going in a month or so.  I hope that he stays focused.

As Shawn warped off and I blued his can for a one day old mining in an Iteron I.  See I’m a nice guy!

Kronos Kill

Posted in Gank, General Asshattery on December 2, 2010 by Gigis

The other day I was passing through the Kador region scanning belts and seeing if there were any juicy mission runners when I happened upon a Kronos in a mission.  I switched to my battle vigil and began the salvage and steal bit as the MR began to talk trash in local.  He reported, after I had cleaned half his room, that he and his corp mates had warned everyone within a three system radius about me being a ninja.  Oh noes..  Didn’t stop him from losing his ship!

I was happy to see one of his corp mates pop into local and was delighted to see a Cormorant show up on a short range directional scan.  I burned away from the warp in point to get a little range and as the Corm pilot landed I was locked up and fired upon.  I pulled out of range of the Kronos (who had been locking me the whole time) and drew the Cormorant with me.  Once there was nothing that the Kronos pilot could do I turned on the Corm and started killing him.

I used only one gun and my drone as I wanted it to take a while so that the Kronos pilot would be tempted to help his friend.  Attempt to help he did.  As the Cormorant pilot dipped into armor the Kronos turned red and I quickly finished off the Cormorant and warped to my Orca.

I reshipped into my Cane and warped back to the mission in time to put a point and start laying into the Kronos.  There were nothing his guns could do to me as I orbited him and as my neuts and guns worked their magic on him I saw local begin to fill with his corp mates.  A Raven warped into the mission area and I began to get worried but a quick check of my aggro timer showed that corp aggro had worn off.  I’m sure that the Raven pilot reported the CONCORD warning in corp chat.  I’m also sure that the Kronos pilot told him to shoot anyway.  I was lucky enough to get a shot off before CONCORD relieved him of his Raven.  Likely his sad report caused the other members not to join in on the fun.

As the Kronos dipped into structure and refused an offer of a ransom the Cormorant pilot returned in a Kestrel and got alphaed.  Then the Kronos became a Kronos wreck.

Sadly there was nothing yummy on any of the ships.  But you can’t be too sad about a Marauder kill!  There were no tears but here is the Kronos pilot’s Bio as a parting shot:

“Eve is just a game. People tend to get really worked up about it, and this is highly amusing. The best moments of Eve is when someone throws a hissy fit after you pwned them when they didn’t expect it. You often use the “it’s a PvP game-line”, but what you really mean by that is that the game is supposed to be exploited and won. No trick is beneath you as long as it lets you get a laugh at the expense of someone else. Everything is valid until CCP says it’s not”
