Well last night, one of our pilots was out doing what he does best (scouting for victims) when he came across an Orca in a Belt with a Hulk warp scraming it.

Well this looked mighty strange and he realized that the Orca had no pilot and that the hulk pilot must have been mining and using it as a large Jet Can. So the call went out over vent that there was an Orca that had now driver and we immediatly formed an op to retrieve said merchandise.

Upon entering the belt Our Pilot targeted the Orca to ensure that the ulk pilot could not jump in it and run away (gotta love game mechanics). One of our other pilots bounce the hulk out of targeting range, and as soon as he did that, pilot one disengaged targeting, I hopped in the Orca and flew it back to home base.

There was also a Thorax and crystals in the Orca so it was bonus time. The young man was not happy as you can imagine, and promised to petition our little act of piracy. However he doesnt have a leg to stand on.

So the moral of this story is boys and girls.. don't leave the keys in it while you are taking a dump. or you might find your Orca Jacked...

Muhahaha

I would post a single sceptical emoticon here, but that is against my principle. I find your story highly unlikely. A person rich enough to buy an orca, and with the skills to fly one, is not a newbie. I don't believe a person, leaving an orca abandoned in space, does exist.

from what I understand locking the orca would not hav prevented the owner from re-entering the orca. It only prevents others from doing that.
Btw interesting tactic of just bumping the hulk out of range instead of suiciding it

Ok, my Alliance (my mains) "found" (i mean ships without a pilot):
- Orca at a gate (he ejected as he was about to blowup)
- Rorqual (was at a pos, but out of shields)
- Jumpfreighter (was bumped out of shields due to password reset...)

So ppl having unpiloted ships nearby is nothing spezial in my opinion :D

seriously you must have at least some general knowledge of how to play eve if you can fly an orca.

Why are these people so fricking stupid? Neutral

In fact, these days it is very unlikely that you come across a n00b player with an "old" character that was purchased with plexes or via ebay.

@ op: nice haul

This happened in the system of Pulin Yesterday evening. It is a fact and the young man we took it from is still angry. We did offer to sell it back to him but he believes that CCP will give it back to him..

I believe the individual we took it from is called pitvip3r or something like that.. and he had taken the hulk to the belt in the belly and thought he could hop out of it and mine and noone would talk his orca.. we just happened to have the ability to take it. It was quite fun and he came back to our system and railed about it in local for about a half hour.

I think these types of oportunities are a good enough reason to train for orcas.

Okay, I will refrase my statement: You are either the luckiest person in EVE, or this never happened, and you are just posting this as a warning to us all. Wink

Yup just contact Steve or Spaz

Oh and I would say to the person assuming we are the lukiest in the world or it didnt happen. I wouldn't say it was luck I would say it was someone doing somethign stupid in our area.

Oh and for the question why can you fly an orca.. its because I am one of 5 Orca and Command Ship Capable Pilots in our Corp.

I admit this story was worth telling; there have been so many lame capers recently. Way to mobilize! Congratulations on the capital gain.

Orca's are quite useful for transporting rigged ships and giving gang bonuses.. can run 3 gang links and they don't have be be mining links YARRRR!!. If you have the time, there is no reason not to train for one IMO, assuming you have the need to move ships and so on..

+10 points for stealing an orca

-3 for not self destructing it in front of him. Or at least pretending to.

I guess he never heard of password protecting it...because you can (I think). Laughing

You are going too fast! Wait five minutes and try again.

Yeah, you just right click on your ship and enter the starbase password before you eject Rolling Eyes

Yeah gotta love game mechanics and people who actually knows them. If you had any knowledge of boarding and leaving ships, you would know that the owner can indeed enter a ship while it is targeted.

quoted as tis the truth... we stole an orca in a simular fashion many many moons ago, however our first attempt failed because the owner boarded, scoped his hulk and left all while we had his orca targeted... however, on our next attmept, we used covert ops and didn't alert him of our presence until our orca pilot arrived, at which point all he could do was watch his orca fly away without him.

I also managed to hijack 2 rigged Orcas of one guy. First time I sold back and the 2nd time I kept it.
Also got a Caldari Freighter skillbook of the Corp Hangar and it was almost full with ore.

No, the original owner of a ship can always reboard it, even if it is locked.
