Just wondering, what is the largest fleet, that you know of, that was taken out by a solo pilot. Doesn't matter what ships they were in, as long as they weren't noobships. For the sake of interesting fights, hopefully it didn't involve smartbombs either. KB links would be nice but anecdotal narratives would be cool too.

Thanks!

I could be wrong about this...

but the largest fleet taken on by a solo player numbered in the 20 to 30 range. The soloist was in a pimped out [multi-billion ISK] Nightmare.

Again, I've only heard stories about this.

Didn't The Enslaver DD a huge BS fleet some time ago? Like 100+ ships? Or was that just lies and hearsay? Question

Confirming a DD was probably the 'largest solo fleet takedown'. Most other 'solo' fights involved not so solo alts (be they falcons/cap industrials/whatever).

There have been instances where drunk fleets suicided on impossible targets of course, but then you might aswell include the lemming runs..

i think "taken out" means dualboxing, like whats the largest amount of characters being run by one person maybe? im not quite sure

I can confirm this. Ive witnessed it on more than one occassion. It was in Pure Blind. IRON held the space at the time, and it was a pilot from Tri that would come in (cant even remember the gate anymore tbh, but if I had a map in front of me I could find it - at work atm) in a heavily pimped out Nightmare and sit on the gate and pop large numbers of ships solo. Being in IRON at the time, I remember the alliance chat well "Oh sh*t, the Nightmare is back....DONT GO TO THE GATE!! We NEED BIG FLEET!!""

As far as I remember, the numbers were in the order ot 12-15 vs 1. Occassionally his Nightmare would get popped, but he didnt really care as he had in the order of 20-50bn.

I thought he would be a c*cky pr*ck, but turned out he was a nice guy....ahh the good times...

The pilot in question is named Darkness, the gate in question EC-8/Torrinos gate and a faction fit Nightmare single volleying BC's or just sitting there, tanking the damage til he would run outa cap boosters. Think we had him touch structure once with 10 BS's and a collection of other crap. I was in Iron then too... glad those days of fail are over.
