For those of us who get a silly grin on our faces when there is even a mention of super capitals dying, this one is for you. I was honestly expecting the first super kill to be commanded by a well know, super killing FC and/or alliance. Statistically that should be the case. Statistics be damned. Such a behemoth should die in a good old fashion fire fight, doing what it does best…

The first super to die was only a few jumps away from the Test Alliance staging system of Hakonen.  Hakonen is one of the more thriving pirating systems, as it is at a nexus between four different regions (two of which are null sec), and thus very frequently traveled.  Test moved in for the combined goal of shooting things and being in jump range of a chunk of space owned by everyone’s current favorite whipping boy, White Noise.  Now obviously, Test Alliance has made a few enemies over the years for various antics and sometimes shooting people.  So, with Test Alliance deployed so close to all these different potential locations for PVP, many other alliances followed.  Eve News’ Riverini has been spending time in the area.  I, Bagehi, am also in that area.  I fly in Test fleets.  Riverini likes shooting Test fleets.  This is Eve Online.  Shooting friends is fun.  It is an ironic twist being here.  About a year ago, I was defending Vale.  Lag, followed closely by fear, kept my capital ships from entering what became the most destructive battle in Eve so far, the battle of Uemon.  A system similar to Hakonen. Every time a fleet forms, there is the nagging feeling that this could be the next one…

It is amusing that a year later, with all the political changes that took place, Red Alliance is in the south fighting Against All Authorities and a coalition is invading Vale of the Silent against a fragmented, formerly formidable coalition.  Deja Vu.

Back to the pew pew.  On the first day of the new year (with many a hung over person on comms) a lone pilot was wandering around Vale, looking for targets of opportunity.  What he found was far too big for him to take down himself.  A Nyx was on scan.  Intrigued, he checked it out.  No, it wasn’t someone hanging out in a POS.  The Nyx was in an anomaly, ratting.  Oblivious to the couple hundred enemies nearby.  Surprise turned to resolve.  Test began forming a fleet up with promise of pew pew.  Welpcane centric, but it was a rapid formup, so there was some kitchen sink as well.  A few suicide-ready carriers were also brought out for logistics support.  The cyno went up and everyone jumped in.

“Nyx primary”

A lone thanatos was rushed to the dying Nyx’s aid, as well as a few assorted ships that were available.  All for naught.  The Thanatos was quickly dispatched, and a few minutes later, the Nyx went down.  The pod was also quite tasty, being a full Slave set.  14 hours into the new year and we have our first super capital death.  Gentlemen, well done.

An image of the Nyx as it dies.

Spiritkill, being a man of humility, proceeded to remind everyone (every chance he had) that he was involved in the first super kill of the year.  Polish off your ego if you will, bring us more super kills and no one will complain.

    I for one congratulate test on finding someone more vastly more retarded than themselves and bagging a good kill. It must be nice invading a region and getting fights instead of slowly burning down a region like branch.

    All we get is "Wolf pacs" picking off the random idiot who burns 12 jumps instead of waiting on a titan bridge. The smug posting those guys put out is oddly reminiscent to ancient Nero.

        … not sure where you are reading "deployed to branch" as that isn't in the article. Helps to read before commenting.

        repprted = reported

        Were = We're

        FTFY. Poor spelling man.

    "a lone pilot was wandering around Vale, looking for targets of opportunity. What he found was far too big for him to take down himself. A Nyx was on scan. Intrigued, he checked it out. No, it wasn’t someone hanging out in a POS."

    No. We burned a spy in a salvaging catalsyst to get him.

    "Test began forming a fleet up with promise of pew pew. Welpcane centric, but it was a rapid formup, so there was some kitchen sink as well."

    Test did start forming up with promise of pew, yes with welp canes, fuck it wasn't a rapid form up, it took 20 minutes to form, then 10 to leave. No it wasn't kitchen sink, it was give welpcane or get out.

    "A lone thanatos was rushed to the dying Nyx’s aid, as well as a few assorted ships that were available. All for naught."

    A Thanatos warped in and attemped to shield rep an armour tanking Nyx. 2 hurricanes also tried to come to its rescue but ~welp~ and they all died, thanny took 15 seconds to pop.

    On an unrelated note, you may not use my picture on your website.
