Ive changed tack now. The dumbest thing Ive ever done in eve online is attempt to spam the eve general discuassion board so that every thread had my posting in last post.

I am doing surprisingly well, and have only been reported once.




See this is why i always said that this alt thing was a bad idea from the start.Should have only one char so that they cant hide who they really are behind some nameless alt.If everyone had to stick to one toon..this game would be ten times better..and the forum would be alot cleaner too.No troll..just my 2 iskugh

Cleaned up trolling and replies to the troll comment.


Hahaha there were over 8 people who said the dumbest thing they had ever done was subscribe to eve online. Where have their views gone? o.0




Considering that the thread is about the dumbest thing done IN EVE and that it's impossible to subscribe within the game, "their views" were off-topic and thus should be removed...

Traveling in 0.0 looking for plexes in my rigged cheetah with faction probe launcher. In a +4 clone with probing implants.

When you're traveling, it can get pretty boring, and I'd often read articles/wiki pages at the same time. So hit warp, switch OOG to browser, read 2 lines, hit jump, warp, read 3 lines, etc.

I'd forgot to get back to the game, cheetah sitting uncloaked at a gate gets killed and podded by passing hostiles (or sometimes rats)... 6 times in a month...

I've done that, lost 11 days worth of caldari cruiser 5 because i was too lazy to fly 16 jumps to my mission hub after going to buy skill books.

also lost a gila and half a dozen drakes to mission rats by falling asleep, one reason why i dont mission anymore,but i think the stupidest thing ive ever done was warp an uncloaked rapier with a 50 mil faction web on it to one of the sansha live events and forget to change to my anti lag overview settings. Popped one stealth bomber then lagged out and died in a fire Embarassed. I have since decided i wont fit faction stuff unless its essential to fit the ship at all.

I once forgot to take a blueprint crate out of a drake I then took on a suicide mission...

Worst thing was the killmails read them all as BPOs so the loss seemed way worse than it was.

Not on my main toon tho, fortunately.

When hurredly slapping together a rifter I spend 750m ISK on 10k units of EMP S. A couple years later I was up extremely late setting up some orders and got a few extra zeros typed in and ended up buying a single Imperial Navy Multifrequency L crystal for 700m ISK...

The first time I raged and quit the game for a couple weeks, the second time I laughed at myself.

well I swore to god I put my pilot back in his fleet issue typhoon before I warped out of AE4 (after salvaging it).

the server logs said no so bye bye bling bling.

Half a bil down the tubes after the salvage.

I wasn't going to post that till I saw "lost Gallente BS5 twice".

That hurts.

Also i just lost a plex card... by redeeming it. lol.

I don't know if it's "stupid," per se, but it sure sucked.

Christmas 2004, I went out of town on vacation and came back to a mail from a research agent informing me I'd "won" a Covert Ops Cloaking Device BPO. The only problem was that by the time I got back in game and spoke the agent, the offer had already expired. Untold billions down the drain... Laughing


I guess the one "stupid" thing I can recall doing was accidentally putting up a free contract under the old system and forgetting to specify one of my alts as the recipient. The contract included a cerberus and several valuable modules. I think Cerbs were going for almost 300m back then and that was real ISK. I realized my mistake very quickly, but back then, people had bots that scanned for free contracts and my contract was claimed within seconds. Embarassed

does getting scammed count?

payed 250 million for 1 rifter, because I was too tired/stoned to count zeros.

Falling asleep during ratting with my drake. Next day woke to see drake managed to survive.

Jumping 30 systems to find that I forgot to load it with the 'Item' needed to move.

This is for someone who tried to kill me.

  • Selling ships for 11,300,000,000 instead of 113,000,000.00 losing 350m in sales tax

  • Failing to do a level 2 mission that offered a typhoon BPO in revard

  • Rejecting a claw BPO

  • Reading general discussion at patch day

Was hauling 1.5b worth of sleeper loot out of low sec, on my way to a high sec hub to sell. I was very tired and while in warp to the first high sec gate, I activated autopilot. Yes, very very stupid, but I was tired and completely forgot how much the junk in my viator was worth.

I had planned on logging off before I got too far into high sec, but I fell asleep a few minutes later in my comfy chair. Woke up TWO HOURS LATER, realizing how idiotic it was for me to be autopiloting through high sec with phat lewtz. I jumped back on my laptop, and there was my viator....still on that first high sec gate...I hadn't actually set a waypoint so activating the autopilot did nothing. Just...sitting there in low sec on a gate.

Why, just the other day on the same alt, I was about to head back home from minmatar high sec...and decided I'd just shuttle through Rancer in a +5, 5% hardwiring clone....instead of grabbing one of the plethora of ships in that station with a covert ops cloak and buffer. The idea was to get back home faster, and you know what? I DID, a heck of a lot faster than I had planned...

Not the dumbest things I've done, just the most recent ones I can think of. Of course, the dumbest things I usually do are on purpose and that might not count.

My first time out in 0, I was headed back in and spotted a gate camp. I knew enough to use a safe-spot and d-scanner to check the gate, but I didn't yet know exactly how bubbles worked. I warped to 100 on the gate to check it out. Did not go as planned.

The day the Drone Regions opened, our corp was moving stuff to go colonize it. One of my corpmates asked which 0.0 system we were gonna colonize, and I couldn't remember the name, but I could remember one next to it. So I opened my map, set dest to the one I remember, then examined the map to get the system name for my bud.

The only problem was that I was autopiloting a Freighter full of POS fuel at the time.... Three jumps later I boldly crashed the M-O gate camp with my Freighter. It did not go well. Sad

Bought my first battleship ever, a Megathron. Nice thing about a Megathron was that out of all the ships I could fly it had the largest cargo hold AND could fit missile launchers. So, first thing I did with it was fill it to the brim with mines, go out and sat on a gate at 15km, the warp-in, and started pumping out mines, docked, reloaded, and repeated. Did this a few times so that there were a lot of mines deployed. Figured it would be funny to see someone fly into it and die... well some one did... and I was there watching... thats when I first learned of Concord. This is back WAY back when a BS was still incredibly expensive.

So 3 weeks later I finally get the money together to buy and fit a second one. This time I knew about Concord and was not going to lose it to stupidity. Part of my plan to not losing it was to test both its tank and dps. First up was the dps. Got a corp mate to undock and started shooting him. Someone else undocked beside him. I was shooting torps. Learned what splash damage was and died to Concord again.

Edit: Clarified it was splash damage and not miss-targeting.
