weve all been at that point in eve were you just feel like jacking it in because you've lost something valuable in a heartbeat 'usually a battleship due to lag or something'

This post is intended for those at that point right now

In my time in eve I've lost a few uninsured battleships, 2 industrial ships full of mexallon, a thorax muinites after I'd spent 2 days going station to station to fit it out just the way I wanted, a few harvesters to npc's (the list goes on) I've been at breaking point about 5 times in total.

This is my crowning accheivement

I'd accumulated 9 harvester mining drones and just today I was about to sell all nice for a loverly 8 million each however when I was trying to find them to put them on escrow to the buyer.... low and behold... I cant find them

after about half an hour of searching frantically for these harvesters the grusome realisation of what I had done dawned on me! I know that by posting this I'm going to look a fool and have about half the population of eve in hysterics laughing at my stupidity but I realised.....

I'D ACCIDENTALLY REPROCESSED THEM YESTERDAY!!!!!!

and the worst part was I couldnt blame anyone, it happened simply through my own complete stupidity LOL

now you can imagine the sheer horror I felt when I realised this however my veteran experience in eve left me with only one option I lmfao!!!

I cant afford to replace them...
I've just lost a hell of a lot of assets
but I dont care
it happens

the best thing I can say to anyone at a low point in eve is this

sit back, take a sip of your coffee, laugh and just say

haha lol.. $$$$$ happens

you gotta laugh at it lol you just gotta

I stopped using harvesters a long time ago, seemed like they were a rat magnet anyway. Better to use the drone bay for some military drones for emergency defence. Wink

Deleting my entire han gar with bpcs/bpos piles of equipment and pretty collectibles like Jovian parts hurt pretty bad.

Tried to select everything and wanted to hit the repackage button...turned out i hit Trash and didnt read the pop up (Both options have a Yes/No Pop up).

Apart from a few cool items i didnt lose that much money, but back then it was still quite nasty since the GMS couldnt get it back. Sad

Leaving a Megathron in a safespot overnight and logging on the next day to find it replaced by a shuttle was painfull.

Taking my first mega mining 1 day after i got it at our new corp hq (Happened to be in the same sys a Pirate corp) resulting in getting wasted without insurance sort of sucked.

Oh you want stories of the things people do when they are tired, angry, etc. eh?
I was in a merc corp and we went to camp a station. There was a Raven out front firing torps at us. All of a sudden the station guns blow the Raven up. He must have targeted the station or it's guns (this was recently when torp splash wouldn't cause that).
I bet that guy felt really bad and it was sad, but funny.

I clone jumped once and then had to clone jump back, and I forgot to buy a new clone so I lost some skill points, but not too many, it was a long time ago.

A guy just this week was in a Megathron, and got so angry at me he attacked me in .9. He died and I got some nice tech II loot. But then here he comes boiling out of the station in ANOTHER BS to get me! Of course he was still flagged and I got another can of loot. Poor sap. And the hell of it is, I've seen that happen twice now. Once in Iro and once in Kehour.

And then there is the shuttle I bought for 8 million.... Razz

back when harvesters were cheap (3m isk each) I had a group-load of them out mining (Probably 5 or so). Anyways, I got tired, finished mining and warped back to the station, docked and went to bed.. when I woke up the FIRST thing I thought about was how I had left the drones floating around in space. I didn't stress it too much but it was still a stupid mistake.

I once gave a corp mate and real life friend 100million ISK to buy his first Battleship as his birthday present.

He got scammed.

Not sure who was more upset; me or him. Confused

in one month of play being blown up in my celestis (just saved up) so i had to go back to my tristian - luckily my corp gave me a thorax (and im pleased to say im still in it) that said i have built up a sizeable ISK and will be buying another thorax and placing it secure in 0.0 space then going the battleship.

And im also now saving all my items and reprocessing as necessary and also taking note of where i can sell 1000 xtray S etc to NPC buyers just in case i need the ISK - trade routes are quite profitable once you find em.

My advice is first level buy 3 cruisers of different types before moving up to battleship / destroyers etc (then make sure you have 3 before you go up another level) if mining get mining drones asap you can deply 2 in the field and it helps speed up mining speed.

Head to 0.0 space once you feel confident 99% will get there and have no troubles the other 1% well youll get ganked and you just have to play with that - but that is what keeps us addicted right.
If you do level 1 missions enough you will get some storylines missions no doubt where you can kill someone and get an implant (hold onto these they can be wroth for basics up to 4-5M ISK) and if you lose a ship can be easily sold for profit.

Decided to try pirating with a 2nd account about a year back, lost equivalent of 1.4billion isk in 6 days. Most of it on the day i was shipping my loot and mineral reserves away from unsecure space to quit pirating.

well, I had a trading alt, and as a favour i was selling on 2 crows that a mate had made. In endevouring to undercut the competition, i lowered the price by a few hundred k.

To my distress, i discovered as soon as clicking ok, i had gotten the number of digits wrong by 3, and had sold 2 crows off at about 14k :(

and they wern't even my crows :'(

Wanted to get a little extra cash, as my insurance payments were due on a few BS's

Went to escrow some arblest siege, as I had enough for a full raven fitting and a couple spares.
Selected the item, put what I thought was decent price on it then set the escrow.

Imagine my surprise when not 15 second latter the escrow was accepted, and at this being at a rather high price and out of the way.

It wasn't untill I went to equip my raven I figured out that I had selected the stack of 8 arb's and not just one. Someone got a good deal that night.

I've done that...

And I wish there was a "Reprocess All" option (hint hint CCP)

First you gotta repackage them, then go to the reprocessing center... cept after the 6th guinness, the reprocess and trash button gets a bit "fuzzy".. ugh

I feel for you as I think almost everyone has a 'DOH' story in thier history. However the saddest tale I ever heard will hopefully lighten your mood more.

A long time ago, in a galaxy very nearby, a nefarious pirate of mOo was camping a gate in 0.0 space, in his new Megathron. Lo and behold, a traveller in an indy came by loaded with some nice gear in the cargo bay. The pirate webbed and scrambled him and preceded to open fire with secondary weapons, announcing that if he ejected he could live.

The pilot ejected and warped away as the pirate accellerated to his prize. He ejected and boarded his new ship only to ralize he never stopped his guns. Yes, he destroyed himself and watched helplessly as his ship continued to move, as he also had forgotten to stop.

Warping to the nearest station he looked for any ship he could use to catch his new Megathron. Finding no ships available in the station nor system, he begged in local for one to buy. Finally he bought a Badger for 50 million from the owner of the Indy he had just captured and managed to catch his Megathron after a time.

How's that for DOH!

Hehehehe

I bought a 10 run apocalypse bpc for 2.2mil about a month ago.Very Happy He probably hates himself for it now. Laughing
How long does it take to make a 10run bs bpc?? A week or so? That was a good deal for me a little less for him.


edit: as of this day I have not yet had my BIG bad DOHH but then again I haven't really done much in a year:S

a few months back i was feeling pretty confident in what wasn ow my 4th or 5th Rax. I had a nice medium armour tank setup with named setup. All named harders a named med reaper.. They wernt the best named ut a damn site better then the tech1's i had a nice named webber in my mid slots and some assorted cap rechargers.. Highs were all named blasters that a mate sold me for cheap because he never used cruisers anymore..

Warped to a belt to test it out this is in Ami and was raping some npc cruiser rats which normaly ars ****d me.. Was chuffed and was tlakign to some corp mates... quite happily tanking the last small rat so didnt pay attention when a blackbird and a kestral came out of warp locked and started firing.. Now they wern't doign any damage so i opend up and webbed the kessie destroyed that and started on the BB... due to my total AFK ness i didnt relise my cap die my tank turn of and the fact i had jsut flown into warp scrambling range (7K) which resulted ina warp scrambling message..

D'Oh 7Mil rax.. 25Mil setup... that was 2months of saving. at that time that was a god dman awful lot for me.

Raindrop* Pats his 10 mill shuttle and leaves it docked.

Raindrop* Tries to forget the loss of an Iteron with 5 27% expanders thanks to an AB not switching on, and instead activating a smartbomb on a station.

Raindrop* Never lost 5 27% expanders to carrying toxic waste in Gallente space while being AFK post shiva. When my ship was destroyed and i found the pod traveling 15 jumps down the route i reversed course hoping to find where i got podded. It turned out to be the first gate. After getting into the next ship i checked my cans there and the 5 27& expanders were still in it. A big thanks to all pilots passing my cans and not bothering to check them.
