August 8th, 2013. A Taranis belonging to a toon named “Gallente Citizen 20060217″ was lost to a tornado in Jita. Sure, this doesn’t sound like an accomplishment for the Tornado pilot, but this Taranis was lugging around approximately 18 billion ISK in mods/implants in its cargo hold.

 

A lot of things similar to this, like with the kestrel that got killed a month or so ago carrying about 20 or so PLEX in its cargo. But this was comprised of a lot more “Random” things so to say. The Taranis was carrying 10 HG Snake Omegas, as well as 2 Cormack’s Large Plasma Smartbombs. These 12 items totaling about 18.1 billion ISK.

 

If this was RMT, then this was a really bad attempt at it, which we have seen in the past. But I highly doubt it was RMT. Thus, why someone would carry this much ISK in implants or mods alludes me. Though, for who ever had managed to scoop this loot, I know you had an amazing day so far.

 

—Whenever more information on what exactly transpired here is known, this post will be updated to confirm or deny the claims of RMT.

    Yes, random alt ganked…..just so happens to be worth a few billion!

    It happens!

    But, only in EN24/Riverini’s head…IT’S RMT!

    If you wanna know how RMT works, get into Goonswarms forums, then and only then you’ll know!

    (It’s kinda funny watching the threads in there now that the 2 goons in top CCP positions have left.)

    I’m really surprised Mitten’s alt getting ganked for a few billion isk hasn’t made EN24.

    I do not believe that the word “alludes” means what you think it does.

    Please explain how this in any way smacks of gold farming or an RMT. This is amateur journalism. You have to explain your claim.

      Um… people with brains don’t transport that kind of load in that kind of ship unless they are trying to “stay under the radar…”

      Just because you need it spelled out for you doesn’t mean he’s doing an amateur job. It absolutely reeks of RMT.

    An unfitted instawarping ship with 18b in loots just goes afk in jita, hrrrm!
    If you wanted to go afk in a ship with 18b in it do it in a battleship and it takes 20 nados to think about popping it – buit then it was just making things change hands on a large scale.

    Would it have been so hard to just look at the victim eve-kill history ?

    And maybe, just maybe, noticing that particular character has already lost, not one, not two, but THREE other multibillions hauls of stuff to suicide ganks ?

    Obviously, the whole concept of “learning” is entirely lost on that player.
