August 21st, at 11:20 eve time a Titan belonging to Tal Jerrico from the corp Retired P0rn Stars, died to Shadow Cartel shortly after downtime.

 

The story behind this titan death was that he was moving his titan towards downtime to be “safe” so to say. He moved his cyno alt into position in Haine, and did what anyone would do, cyno in his titan right before downtime, so once it hits, it logs it out, and it’s safe until he logs in to move it to another cyno that he’ll have ready. Unfortunately, he cyno’d his titan in a little bit off of when he should, and a tengu had enough time to warp to his cyno and kill it. Upon seeing the tengu land on grid and kill his cyno, he decloaked his Erebus and warped towards the sun with DT hitting him mid warp.

 

Right after downtime, Shadow Cartel scrambled to get people logged in with probes in the system so they can find the Erebus once it logs back in. About two minutes later the Erebus pilot logged back in, but Shadow Cartel already had probes and a cyno ready for their own caps to come kill it. Once the Titan had been probed down, Shadow Cartel had warpped a HIC they had on standby to get initial tackle, while the supers refit for combat and jumped in about 3-4 minutes later. Once the initial tackle had been achieved, the titan pilot immediately logged out of eve, and at this point, with his titan tackled, there was nothing he could do to stop Shadow Cartel from dropping on his Erebus and killing it.

 

Would he have lived? Probably not. But should he have logged out? I personally say no, because if you log out while tackled, you’re going to die no matter what, he at least should’ve stayed logged in to try to kill something before he died. So the moral of this, is don’t just rage quit like he did if you’re tackled, you might as well try to do something proactive if you know you’re going to die, rather than just curling up and waiting to die.

    If it was me, I’d do this:
    FIRE EVERYTHING!!!
    and when my tank seems to run out soon, doomsday one of their capitals, preferrably BEFORE they suck your cap dry

    Maybe he hadn’t played since 2010 and thought the logoffski was still a mechanic.
    But better, he should have stayed logged off until October

    The Erebus logged *back in?* Without scouting the system for bubbles or, say, half a dozen probers and HICs?
