I took my -2.4 self in a geddon to perimeter (1.0) on the way to somewhere else and came right to the forums to post this beauty http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=912400&page=1


Yeah there's some pretty awesome drunk posts of mine too. ;-) Though they're usually illegible... Embarassed

I remember one thread you drunk posted to that was Laughing (Thanks EVE Search)

Anywho, one of my worst blunders:

There was this one patch last year that caused people's clients to not fully load every few jumps (you could see the stars and such, but your overview, HUD and windows never loaded, forcing you to log out and log back in). For some reason, the Minmatar Militia decided to go on a Providence roam during this, which ended up being a disaster with the first bubble we jumped into. I was one of the lucky ones who survived, and quickly got into a neighboring system.

At this point, I should mention that this patch wiped out all my settings, and since I hadn't saved a backup of them, I was still working at setting up my overviews. The FC is still alive, and wants someone to scout out my side of the gate. I warp to a nearby planet, hit the scanner, and nothing shows up. Rather than thinking "Shouldn't the stargate at least show up on my scanner?", I tell the FC that the gate is clear. He and the rest of the fleet jumps through. Needless to say, there was a surprise waiting for them. The FC wasn't pleased Embarassed

Going by chronology...my 1st happend in 2005.

In 2008,I was whoring lvl4s and kept 2 full sets of pith x-type hardeners for my CNR loose in the hangar for ease of swapping them.

Dropped some mission loot into the hangar,cntrl+sweep the loot to be reprocessed but a small lag glitch highlighted the piths as well and....welll...petition refused.

I might have been there for that!

I remember those (horrible) few days after that patch when we'd have to re-log after most jumps. I also remember slaughtering a Minnie Militia gang during that time Laughing (granted, you got totally blobbed...but you know how Prov is)

Come visit again! Our gates are totally working now. Cool

Accepted a courier contract with a juicy reward. The volume however was way bigger than what I could carry. No worries I thought, I'll run back and forth a few times.

I ofcourse forgot you can't split such a package :). Luckily a friend did about 30 jumps to help me out.

Sitting out in 0.0 in my alliance's space (pre-sovereign stuff), and saw this incoming pew-pew loaded with tackle stuff. He popped a bubble, then people swarmed me.

My mistake was assuming my dual Maelstroms could pop him as he came in. I intended to do that, then warp away. I just wiffed and wiffed (knew tracking would be an issue once he got close, but while still 10s of k away?)

I gave a good fight against the horde (had ships fly in opposite directions so one or the other could get range) and one made it outside the bubble, but lost 'em both.

I did quite a few blunders just today.

First i went to a wormhole with my scanning ship, but was so distracted i left a few windows open and never seen some other frigate was nearby. Not long afterward i got targeted and drones made short work of me. To add insult to injury, i had drones myself and did not even launch them.

A bit later i went into a plexe with some friends, but got careless and flown right through the npcs with my catalyst expecting to kill them off easily. Got blown up and lost rigs and a few of the modules.

And last, i almost repeated the exploit with my hyperion in a level 4 mission with my corp mates. A new spawn appeared and i got all aggro, but was overconfident and stayed to fight. I made it out with my last inch of armor.

I believe i made more blunders in a single day than i did in the last few months.

I was about a week old and doing level 1 missions. I got a friend to buy an account and was showing off my new destroyer. We were in a mission room and ungrouped and in separate newb corps. Anyway, I show off shooting down a few frigs, then I says "watch this!" and lit off a smart bomb. It blew him up and then concord warped in and blew me up. I go back to the station, spend nearly the last of my ISK on a Rifter, fitted it, launched and boom. Didn't know anything about count down timers. Still it was fun.

Accidentally reprocessed dozens of tech 2 modules. Long before that I was killed while transporting capital ship blueprints. Serves me right for using autopilot.

I went to live in a WH and we got to scan our ass off everyday to find a route or do stuff. Making bookmarks, then sharing bookmarks, and in the end finding yet another WH that has 20 sigs. Rinse and repeat, BORING.

Thinking covops cloak makes scouting needless -250 mil.

Trying to ask a corp member why he's shooting your hulk with a cruiser on a mining op before setting the drones on him -200 mil.

besides the usual (buying a navy raven in jita local) i remember..

- mining gas in low sec with a cruiser and a cloaked viator.. 'neutrals' show up and stay.. my aligned cruiser got away.. viator is cloaked.. think i might just pick up the gas from the jetcan (worth like 5mil) - just a short decloak needed..

- slingshotting an alliance-mates freighter without checking for proper agression timer, assuming the earlier canflip surely is enough..

- wondering what my ceo (nearby) just dropped on an op in his bomber..

I was transporting a full set of slave implants from stain to empire in an interceptor when I stumbled across a hauler on a gate and attacked it without realizing I had just jumped into the first 0.1. Long story short, a 2 week old noob in an atron stumbled across the wreck and made himself a cool 1bil.

Logging off drunk in a random W-space without a scanning ship and or friends near (*beer*)

Finding out that living in W-space is quit boring after bringing in billions worth of stuff as it takes ages to scan your way in and out, every day, rinse and repeat -even with good skills ^^.

Having a big mouth in localchat about how you will conquer the system and annihilate everybody in it and then get instapopped 1 second after your 'intimidating' speech.

It's hard to choose the worst.

There was the time (not so long ago Embarassed) when I got podded, jumped into a new ship, and got podded again. Oops, forgot to upgrade that clone, scratch 1,000,000 SP off of Caldari Battleship 5.

Then there was the time I was playing station games with WT's in my Nighthawk. I wasn't going to win that fight so I deagressed with plenty of shield left and started spamming "dock." About a minute later as I entered about 1/2 armor I realized I hadn't recalled the drones...

Jumping out of a WH about to pop in a cyclone before the smaller ships jumped because I misheard the FC... They did have a prober stuck inside with them though and managed to get out to some lowsec system and the ships got a carrier ride back to nullsec.
