Since the dawn of civilization – There has been war, and with war has come profiteering.

And so MandozerTheGreat saw the opportunity to make a lot of isk by seeding the fleet doctrine ships used by Honeybadgers and the Deklein Coalition in 1DH-SX. Only problem was the limited access he had to the 1DH station, with so many CFC in system and FCs obviously not willing to defend his freighter trips to put ships on the market for his own financial gain. With these limitations in mind, he contacted an old friend in the ‘The 99 Percent’ Alliance. After negotiations, he contracted a lot of ships to his Triget, to be put up on 1DH-SX market, to be placed on the market at the inflated wartime 1DH market prices.

Triget, having already committed to bending ethics, saw an opportunity to make significantly more isk by simply taking the ships and not honoring the agreement (there was no collateral). Additional benefits from this arrangement was that it was a blow to a member of an enemy alliance. A blow to Mandozer for being… well, Mandozer.

Here is the proof:

Total outcome was:

28 Rokhs (w/ Fits)
69 Drakes (w/ Fits)
1 Rhea

Which is roughly 24billion ISK

I had a small convo with Triget, Alliance leader of “The 99 percent” and puppetmaster behind the scam;

Dsan > Why did you decide to scam “an old friend”? ¬†because you had the chance and it was to good to pass up ?
Triget > The chance, he was pushing me to do a bunch of work because he was too lazy to do the work himself.
(…)
Dsan > Mandozer isn’t involved in the war himself, is he ?
Triget > He’s in Nulli now..
Dsan > I think you are trolling now..
Triget > Hah, he thought the same thing.
(…)
Triget > Was just using me because I’m fairly good and he’s trusted me for about 6 months to tender his Aeon.
(…)
Triget > The plan was to sell arms to both sides.
Dsan > So he is most likely seeding Nulli ships in C3N?
Triget > He would, but I think he has maybe 4-5 bil left.
(…)
Triget > you know that the target being Mandozer was the main reason it ocured to me.

 

So there you go, supply your allies but be wary about trying to profiteer off your enemy – you might end up getting screwed in the end.

Also, I think the general consensus is that not many people on either side of the Delve/Querious conflict feel bad for Mandozer about this.

    Before everyone cries about this not being a big enough scam to warrant a new article, realize that the important thing is who was scammed. Mandozer is fairly well known in various parts of eve and just because you haven't heard of him doesn't mean it's not news worthy. So don't cry like a bunch of pubbies tia

            I saw him once take out Raynaldo Rivera outside N-DQ station with local smack that made me sit back in fear of being trolled that hard.

            I would never want to fight Mandozer in local.

  11. hello

    I will never understand why people cry so much about articles. if you don't like it stop reading. If eve news fails at anything its attracting the whiny biatches for readers whom feel the need to post every negative comment that comes to their head.
    20 billion is a fair amount of isk. If you don't think so you either have more or are just jealous. And the screwed over aspect of the article is a centerpiece of life in eve. You always have to look out for yourself. This article just reminds folks of that in a real eve lesson.

  16. Is it really worthy of the word "scam" when you just take someone's shit? To me, a scam implies some sort of trickery.

    It seems that Triget is the same player who used to play as Horus, Pupetmaster and so on. Lot of people will remember that name.

    He was the guy who pulled plug on Imperial Order alliance and dropped their sov some time ago, and also used to brag about having something like 80 bots running missions in empire and RMT-ing the isk for something like 6k euros per month (among other of his notable accomplishments). He and his bot army got banned recently, but not all of the isk he had was taken away again so he financed that 99% alliance and bought new characters.

    Before the ban, he was in NC. with his corp Untouchables or something. That is why how he knows that Mandozer was replaying info on NC. fleets to goons.

    99% guys, do not keep all your stuff in Delve stations, sooner or latter you are gonna get screwed over. Ego of your leader is enormous and he will do anything to constantly feed it (this article is the proof of how big attention whore he is).

    Great way to pay back the guy whose ISK injections were the only income the alliance had in Great Wildlands and who ran a ship replacement program for 99% pilots from his personal wallet.

    But I guess that all doesn't matter when you have to impress TEST so you can keep sucking on their teats.

    You can't keep "buying time" forever… it doesn't take a genius to notice that the alliance didn't undergo any sort of reformation in Syndicate (whole "deployment" was just the same ten dudes as always losing a bunch of ships in Syndicate while everyone else kept jewing in Fountain) and at some point you will have to put up or leave.

        lol, funny that you of all people would say that, Avensys.

        Didn't you crawl back to high-sec mission running before we even moved to Fountain?

        I had a few good chats with triget recently that he hasn't uploaded to pastebin yet. I'll send you a link once I get around to putting them up there.

  23. I enjoyed the article! Thanks! Posting this because so many whiny bitches see fit to levy personal insults at you. Hey guys! Listen carefully, your tiny brains may not have thought of this bit just because you dislike an article doesn't mean everyone does so stop posting your opinions as fact and spend some time in a world where being an ass is less acceptable! Eve is not real so when yours not in game try to have some respect for others!!
