This morning at approximately 10am GMT 4 m0o ships, myself in a Raven, Omniwar, Doctor Strangelove and Motaka in Rifters engaged and destroyed Tyrrax Thorrk of Star Control who was piloting the Gold Magnate.

It is my pleasure to announce that we caught the engagement on fraps although the quality of the footage remains to be seen. At risk of sounding boastful, m0o corp has now destroyed 1 Imperial Apoc and has surely toppled said feat with this mornings destruction of one of EVE's few unique items.

Tyrrax....I feel your pain Evil or Very Mad

Amarrian Empire shall be crushed by us and all who support them.

Was a nice kill and the seccond most expencive ship kill in the game so far.

The warriors of m0o salute Tyrrax for his bravery to actually fight in the Gold Magnet, (Gold Nugget)

Shocked there goes my ship collection... A item like that should be kept in the hangar and only flown in >.04 empire space.

That didn't take long Confused

At any rate the press release is correct apart from the fact it was I who engaged m0o and in my zealous stupidity kept shooting Omniwar's rifter just a bit too long.

Congratulations.

You took me out lag-free and in a fair fight, if I had to lose it to anybody I would have chosen m0o.

I'll post some screenshots after I've converted them etc.

While I must congratulate the warriors of m0o for striking this blow against the Empire I cannot help but feel sad that such a unique vessel has been lost.

The Gold Magnate was surely the pinnacle of modern frigate technology.

Very nice kill, and good for Tyrrax for having the balls to fight in it.

No point in having something like that if you're going to let it rot in a hangar somewhere.

Played guys.

I agree it is somewhat saddening seeing as the Gold Magnate was completely unique and will never been seen again ingame. It is humbling that I partook in its destruction.

I could have jumped any second and you took me down to 87% structure but the plan was to keep you busy allowing you to kill me if needed why the guys webbed and warp jammed you to finish what we started few days go.

But I got a nice fraps footage of it Cool

How ridiculous... These things should be used. the shouldn't sit in a hanger.

It is the same with the idle Imperial Apocs - If PIE had them they would not sit in hanger rusting - they would be used to smite the enemies of Amarr...

Kudos for Tyraxx for attacking the evil m0o pirates Wink

Long Live The Empire

That's really cool Zap, I hope to one day play EVE again but seeing as how CCP hates me and no matter how many times I download their client I get a CRC error and I get a verification error patching it doesn't seem as though I will be playing EVE any time soon. :(

Sorry to say that the fraps is a bit borked.

But we can see the Gold Magnet take damage to about 50% armor and then I by mistake turned off fraps and activated it again to record the pod and the can, info window of the Gold Magnet is also seen to emphasize (sp) what ship it was that was downed.

But I was a bit surpiced he actually engaged since there were 4 of us and he was alone, he managed to take my rifter down to 87% structure before he figured out that he was in deep trauble and tried to escape, but with 2 webs on him he wasnt going anywhere.

Respect goes to Tyrrax for his bravery.
