I neglected the killboard outside of my own. This was a mistake. Idiotism should not be ignored. Watch, how our fellow human beings, who managed to collect billions of ISK displayed zero understanding of the game.

This report covers the October 14 – 20 week and I hopefully don’t forget to do it again next week. I created 3 groups for them. The first is suicide ganked morons. They simply put way too much value into their ship for its tank and got ganked. No, a freighter isn’t too tanked and not able to protect more than a billion. No, shield booster is not considered tank. Neither shield boost amplifier.

The second group is even dumber. They flown something expensive in highsec under wardec. Usually a jump freighter. So their death didn’t need an organized gank group, just a few pilots. Because if you own a 9B ship, you can’t afford a second pilot who is in the NPC corp and takes over the JF in a lowsec mindpoint.

All together 246B. In a week. Approximately 1T/month. That’s a high price for being a moron in EVE Online. Counting with $13/PLEX and 600M/Plex, it’s $22000/month. It would have paid for basic education. Please also note that the gank losses of overpriced morons are already in the magnitude of the kills of the largest nullsec alliances.

The last group is stupid beyond imagination. I mean the previous ones are bad enough, but they could at least get lucky and pass unnoticed. However these idiots put a few PvP modules, typically a point or scram to their otherwise completely badly fit and stupidly expensive ships. So it’s likely that they were actively looking for being killed. In which they succeeded. Oh wait, they might just wanted to impress Ripard Teg.

  • 14B something. I failed to figure out what he wanted, but surely not showing up here.
  • 12B something. It’s like the previous one, except having gateguns on the kill and being in lowsec.
  • 5B Loki in Uedama. It had a long point, which complements the autocannons, and webs well. Oh wait, it doesn’t.

Finally, let me share a personally found idiot(s). This one has a story, unlike just a kill report and a one-line summary. So, I was ganking ice Macks. Found one with interesting fit: 3 empty midslots and a 400M faction invulnerability field. Ganked him. Got the pod too, 2.2B. OK, losing an expensive but dumbly fit ship and a stupidly expensive pod is bad enough, but the story is far from being finished. After docking up the flashy red pods, I went to loot the faction invulnerability field which dropped. Except it wasn’t there. Easy come, easy go, I guess. So I found another Mack and ganked it. Another 600M kill. How? It wasn’t expensively fit! Then I checked the cargo: he took the invulnerability of the wreck of his corpmate, and kept mining. His pod was 2.3B. Since the loot fairy loves those who cleanse New Eden from idiots, the faction invulnerability field dropped again and this time I looted it.

PS: a piece of great news by Sugar from EVE Vegas:

“Are they done with mining changes? No. They want to do another pass of the barges. The Procurer and Skiff are not as useful as they want. The Retriever and the Mackinaw are too strong with being good in two out of three areas.”
The three areas are tank, yield and ore hold. Since Rets and Macks are meant to have the best ore hold, it means that they will either get a tank nerf or a yield nerf, both are welcome changes.

    While anyone can troll through the killboard for insane kills, this was the first Goblin article that didn’t make my eyes bleed. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    1. yeah right

      The problem is, he can’t even do this thing right. Half of those “WTF IS THAT?!” kills are quite obviously incursion fits whose pilots are only guilty of having either too blinged-out ships or non-suicide-resistant travel fits.

        I would agree that failure to setup a proper travel fit is derp worthy if you’re an incursion pilot due to the value of the ships involved. I sure as hell am not flying my Machariel around without logi, unless it’s fit for max tank and is stabbed. I’m not throwing about 6 billion isk (About what, $130 US?) just because I’m lazy. Lazy does equal stupid.

    I truly …… truly need to avoid clicking on an article before i read who wrote it….But since im here: “His fit is stupid even if we ignore the lack of buffer, which a bunch of tornadoes didn’t” and “I can’t figure out what he wanted.”. Those 2 kills reveal lack of comprehension and intelligence. Obviously both of those fits are for incursions. One characteristic of expensive incursions ships are the tech 2 specific damage rigs. The mach was obviously travelling to another incursion site (hence the lows). Regarding the freighters majority of them have poor cargohold or almost none. That is indicative that they are on someone’s shit list (normally an enemy’s logistic alt or working for an enemy entity) or simply they just wanted to kill something big (for fun and lols). The rest tipical eve screw ups. This dude buried how much? 60, 70 or 80 billion into TEST and rubs his tummy all happy and cozy when he ganks something that cannot shoot back? I would love to see a kill report on the money you pissed away while in TEST…..unfortunately that feature is not available…..

    Congratulations!!!!!!!. You are the smartest person out there . But when it come to games pls take of your sit belt and get ride of the stick in your a…….so all peeps can have fun. Whats the point of gaming other then relax your self and spend some thrilling time with friends and other ppl in eve universe. Just get shuttle, put 1b cargo on it and try flying trough Jita . I beth that will be most thrilling moment in your life. So pls stop censoring other players behavior by stupid posts .
    Try to remember that’s games are for fun no matter how stupid thing you are doing in them. Its not real life. And if you can’t accept that its your problem not the other way around .

    Idiots are found everywhere. Like in this article where Gevlon Goblin believes all of those Kill values to be correct. What an idiot!

    Example: The 10.5B T1 industrial kill. Those Imperial Navy Small Remote Capacitor Transmitters tend to sell for nearer 30mil than the 350mil in the KB. He doesn’t even understand how KB’s work.

    What an idiot Gevlon Goblin is. Let’s all laugh at him. Oh you were already.

      Not to be argumentative, but could you explain how this is a good article? I’m seeing some pretty blatant issues such as over-pricing of ships, failure to fact check ( based on reports from other sources that nightmare belonged to a person leaving eve and decided to let people get a big kill mail), Selective definitions of tank that do not match with official definition, Lack of any sort of idea how that Loki works (seriously I’m not sure what to say about that, there are a bunch of reasons to use a long point in conjunction with shorter range weaponry). most of all what is the point of the article? Are we supposed to learn? kind of hard when there is no real commentary. Are we supposed to laugh at these people? Why? Some of these make sense in context. I’m not seeing how this is a good article Please tell me because clearly this is beyond my ken.

    funny how someone who has lost more than 2250 ships (!) while killing less than half of that thinks he can make comments about who is a moron.
    You sir, are on place 6 of the most lost ships since the introduction of API confirmed killmails – and that with being in the game for only a short period.

      Also long point on a loki is fine even with the webs and ac’s, when you fly anything other then gank highsec boats you will qualify to judge other peoples fits, till then i think you should fade away.

    “5B Loki in Uedama. It had a long point, which complements the autocannons, and webs well. Oh wait, it doesn’t.”

    So you are saying that he should have a scram fitted? It is very difficult to catch anything on a gate with a scram. Autos are built to stay at range, the web keeps hostiles at range.

    The only thing on that fit that annoys me is the AB.

      ab is fine for a plated loki but the problem is the plate and not a 1600mm

      Not to mention the subsystems giving bonuses to web range and falloff, matching (or exceeding) the range of the long point.

  20. oh hi

    Some of those mission fits are fine except for the fact of how much isk went in to them. Judging by the alphas the nado’s were able to land, I’d say their mistake was not turning on their hardeners in high sec when they noticed a bunch of nados sitting on the gate or undock. A nado just isn’t going to land 9k alphas when you have 2 or 3 adaptive invunls running, putting your resists into the 70’s.

    hello globtard.
    “5B Loki in Uedama. It had a long point, which complements the autocannons, and webs well. Oh wait, it doesn’t.”

    If you took the time to check. The subsystems give him web range at about 30km, and Loki being a T3 ship, he can overload the long point and keep his target at 30km or so, for a long long time.
    The other subsystem he has is the one giving him falloff range. meaning, his autocannons can shoot stuff 40km away, with the right ammo.

    And this is just skimming on the stupidity of your posts.
