Leaving EVE unattended for a while, taking out the trash. Come back to a pod, and Concord Mail, which stated that my faction fitted Rattlesnake was toast. It was a number of years ago, at that count it was about 7 billion ISK worth of mods, including the ship.

Apparently my dear partner decided to see what, and I quote: "this EVE thing is all about," and, to my response of "WTF did you do?" was: "Its a stupid game, and you must not be very good at it, I tried to shoot a guy in that special super-duper ship you talked about and I got killed right away!"

So, lesson learned, do not leave EVE client unattended with my love around, just in case another try might be in the pipeline.

Edit:
Obviously the incident took place in High Sec.

Oooh boy, this last week was my worst ever.

I was inflicted with a terrible flu since Sunday, so I thought it would be a good time to rest and play EVE to heal. In my attempt to offload a rigged Marauder (about 1.075 billion ISK in value), someone managed to pulled off one of those trade window scams on me. I got 1.075 million ISK for it.

The very next day, I was scanning stuff down in a lonely system to take my mind off the loss. After a couple nice radar sites, I discovered a pristine wormhole. In the process of switching to my sleeper-killing ship, however, my ~50 million ISK scanning ship (fitted with Sisters equipment), was destroyed by some dude in a Proteus. A worthy death, at least.

A little groggy, disappointed and preoccupied, I went into the wormhole with the sleeper-killer without thinking. After jumping around a little bit making safe spots, I realized I hadn't bookmarked the wormhole to get back out. I'm still stuck in there, pricey implants and all.

I guess I'll use the time I spend in there skill training or something!

This one time I tried to doomsday an Interdictor that was bubbling my Titan and it didn't work. That was pretty annoying. Evil or Very Mad

Ratting in 0.0 with my Tempest back when Scouts and Arbalest were the top dogs. Fully fitted with very respectable gear.

Wife in full agro for the last 20 minites about who knows what...I think it had something to do with dinner. So after I kill the last bs and scoop the loot, I... in my now wife induced frazzled state, warp to my "safe" spot...forget to hit my cloak, and head off to appease the wife.

After about 10 mins, I hear the familiar sounds of trouble. I dart to the computer room, further agro from Mrs.B ensues and to make matters even more comical I see my Tempest fully locked down and being curb stomped. Three rival alliance bs and two fast moving frigs. I sent my drones after the frigs and quickly tried to throw everything I had at a Raven, but I was way too far neck deep in the ****e! Laughing Well deserved smack down.

Poof!

Then they podded me...then more agro from the wife for, "spending more time with that game than me!"

Did I mention she hates this game? Laughing

I left the computer to open the door for my boyfriend, while I was camping a gate in BWF with my merlin.

The cops that brought him there confiscated all my computers and my boyfriend was arrested for running the worlds largest torrent site, ended up convicted and fined $5 million. The next day, Mercenary Coalition invaded my alliance.


Oh, and I lost my merlin.

Joined my first corp after being a hard core care bear for almost 2 years. Corp was located in Dysa, in Derelik region. I loaded up my T2 fitted and rigged Hulk with all of my researched BPOs and most of my T2 gear, and the rest of the space with Blue Ice, and headed to Dysa from Cistuvaert, a Gallente noob starting spot. Everything was fine until I jumped blindly into Abha system in Derelik region, where I more or less ****d stupid and silly by a pirate who hit the jackpot that day.

A billion isk in assets shot right in the rear end, I was bound and determined to make my first steps into low-sec work, and so I podded myself into Dysa to get a better look around and evaluate my position.

I located a replacement Hulk and mods a few jumps away, and set off to get myself righted and into business. I made it back to Dysa with the new Hulk, and set out mining stuff I'd never seen with my Hi-sec carebear eyes before, and had a grand time for about 10 minutes until the pirates came along and blew that one up.

What can I say, I learn slow.

I ended up living there in Dysa and Mahti for 6 months or so, and learned how to NOT get killed every 15 minutes, so in the end it was worth the pain of learning, but that first day, losses of over 1.5 billions, was pretty epic fail.

I once sat still on a gate in a factionfitted Ceptor and forgot to turn off the MWD, 2 snipe BS warped in on 150km, instalocked, instapopped before I could even move the mouse to the jump button. Laughing
(at the time, very expensive)

I once engaged the entire CVA navy by myself in a passivetanked Vulture. They mentioned it on CAOD, hillarious long fight given the odds (about a minute).

Now that i had enough time during boring pos siege..

I was terminally bored once, so i played around with some combat guardian fit. I've specialized in flying those things but never really killed people with them.

So i went roaming around, flying through Pure Blind. It was largely empty. I had a fight on the gate to empire in ec-, which i won (killed a ceptor, reds deaggressed and jumped)
Then, i hit a gatecamp with ~10 people. I reaproached to test their dps, but it was a bit too much, so i jumped. Apparently one of their rifter pilots was smarter than his mates and he hadn't aggressed, so he jumped after me. He managed to tackle my alt, so i killed him. As i was retracting my drones, local spiked, so i immediately squadwarped out. Sadly i had selected a planet instead of a gate, so to my surprise i landed on a planet (doh!). Of course a ceptor landed on top of me, so i aligned out and killed him too. Just as he popped, his gang landed on me and got a lucky scram on my main.

The fight ended after i had put a curse into structure (lucky guy got one mwd cycle off) and had just shot a vaga down to armor as the domi got a jam on my alt. It kind of went downhill from there..

Battlestats

Just because i warped to the wrong celestial. Sad

I bugged my corp the **** out to get a Maller. Upon licking boots to mirror shine, I got one that I immediately accidentally trashed instead of assembling. The fun started when they accepted to buy another one for me that was some jumps out. I figured out Iíd use my fully cargo expanded Bestower to haul it back home through low-sec. Itís quicker that way?

... and thatís all I have to say about that. Embarassed

Iím not even gonna make excuses over that. Im just a plain tard sometimes.

I don't know if you could call that a blunder. IIRC, it wasn't exactly common practice to doomsday-proof dictors back then. Part of what made that particular story so awesome.

No, he means someone actually managed to set up a dictor to tank 60k damage from a pre-dominion doomsday. The event was quite well-publicised.

P.S. wtb old DD-proof dictor fitting.
