Just remembered another one.

Was helping a mate in Vengeance and one of the warp in points is on top of another acceleration gate. I'd warped in and had started moving off toward my mate who was quite a way away. After a minute I was satisfied that the Sanshas there weren't going to attack my precious Omen while I went for a wee.

Thirty seconds later I hear laser fire, stick my head round the bathroom door (pants still round my ankles) just in time to see the ship die a glorious death.

I lost my first bs, a scorp in the old SE vs CA war in (you guessed it) u-q at the b-3 gate.

I was in the SE fleet gang, on SE ts and the whole works and I had been told the way was clear from dss-ez to vol-mi.
Me and some friends were going to the movies later that night and one of them came to my house early to just hang out.
Now he's not an eve player so he doesn't understand the nessecity of intel in eve so he told me that those damn garbled english voices on ts were irritating the crap outta him so I exited ts to make the poor bastard not bleed out of his ears.
Little did I know that a few seconds later, Inflatable Teen [COL] said on ts "Masta hold in b-3, there's a small CA gang waiting for you in u-q" and I jumped right on through in a multispec fitted scorp and faced 2 or 3 ravens and some tacklers (ask animeboy for details, seems he frapses every kill to gloat about them Wink) needless to say, little inexperienced me tried to go for the tacklers and got p0wned.

I also tried a lollerphoon (typhoon with quad lif and 6 nanofibers) which lasted for the trip from curse to gw and when I was pwning a raven with like 10 bane volleys after my ass a vigil undocked and webbed me. You can imagine the rest... the ship was also uninsured as always Laughing

Soo Ive got a couple good ones here too..

U know if I need to get somewhere fast when i dont have instas or i need to make instas i use the following setup: a fast t1 friggie like atron, slasher or that amar thingy, fill lows with nanofiber and slap on an mwd. then when in space i drag the mwd icon over to high slot so that i can activate it using F1 button.. With a combat setup though i dont do that, so F1 activates weapons... Sooo one day i was travelling in one of these and eventually came to some station in rens to pick up a few implants and drop them off at another station in rens. Was late at night and i was real tired and i was gonna log right after this.
While on that first station i saw a combat fitted rifter so i thought ill take it over to the other station.. So i jump into the rifter, undock and warp to that station, hit approach and hit F1.. not much happens.. so im like "yo, why am i not approachin, must have forgotten to hit 'approach' button". So i left click the station to get that cool round menu thingy....;;;;;;;;^^^^^^^^d
Anyways, after i docked at the station in my pod i figured that some implants have survived and i better go pick them up before someone else does.. so i jump into one of those t1 frig mwd thingies and undock,,,,,d,,f,v,v



yeh and another stupid loss, not me though but corpmate... soo one day we were out hunting some amar scum, and an enemy cruiser warps in.. look at his icon, ok, omen, we take him....then my mates hp is halved and a few seconds after she pops.. i warp out. she look in lossmail... arg, zealot!! Confused

Maybe i should add my latest(some day ago)..
traveld from amarr to yulai, in a claw, thought.. hmm.. na, never been ganked in a 0.3 system since zombie inc hade some fun in the systems around(and in:p) yulai. and since the sentrys got a 150km range it feel fairly safe.
so i afk traveled in my claw while i keept an eye on buffyEmbarassed and suddenly i hear some explosions... i launch myself at the computer just as i see my pod ejecting, started dubbleklicking like crazy on a nearby planet.... but to late.. ohh, there goes full set +3 implants and my clone is in solitude(forgot to move it after the move back to the homelands of heimatar)

Bookmarking instas, Locked gate to get the spot on insta, I went to click Auto pilot to take me to next gate, I clicked 200mm Autocannon Tech II instead. The sentry guns showed no mercy for my poor little Claw.

O yeah And I've lost an APOC up in Tenal Region, No really I HAVE LOST IT ! I deleted loads of BMs while drunk, so the Damn thing is probably still sat at the Safe spot not Far From BKG.

Locked a DED battleship with the intention of scanning it, but I didn't press down ALT hard enough, and I hit F2 on it's own, which launched a missile at the DED ship.

It took one volley and I was shipless. Very Happy

Didn't cost me my ship, but deserves to be put here :

I put all my turrets offline instead of swapping ammo (nevermind the confirmation message that pops up when offlining something, I must have has my brains turned off)

Needless to say, I left the fight in a hurry after THIS !!

Here's a couple of my less than gracefull moments.

I'd had my Celestis for awhile & was having fun with it when someone posted a link about complex locations in chat. "Well." I think to myself. "I haven't done this before......"
So I load up pick one that I think I can handle and head out. I found the complex and was really having fun but some of the spawns are getting a little close.
I pop the Smartbomb.
Done it before no prob....
I didn't see the other player sneaking up behind me.
I'd forgotten that I chose a complex in .6 & not .5
Long story short....homie gets close enough to me to get zapped by the Smartbomb & Concord shows up to finish the dirty work. I'd never seen Concord's handiwork up close & really didn't want to see the recieving end of it! I had no clue what was happening! Didn't know who these ppl were of why they were shooting at me! My Celestis lasted all of 30 seconds.
Then there's the story of my dmbace minning in a place I shouldn't have been when I knew there was a vicious pirate in system. I REALLY didn't want to see the explosion graphics of cruise missles from the recieving end.
Famous last words (spoken aloud no less...) "Are those tristan spawns actually shooting missles?" I never saw him coming.
And then there's the time I thought I could handle the spawns in Old Man Star in a Tristan.....

Those are the only ones I'm going to fess up too....

Edit - why do so many of us play this drunk?

Just this second.

Was heading to Stain to do some Sansha missions. I have no BM's for that region at all.

I get to a gate and there's a -10 standing guy to us, so I decide to SS. However, once arriving at my SS my autopilot decides it doesn't want to stay there, and warps me right back to the gate.

41 ships lost so far!

Quite recently AFK mining in a badger mk II in Arnatele (near bereye), after being told by a corpmate that there were going to be pirate spawns at all the asteroid belts.

I tell him not to worry and shove both my Civilian Shield Boosters on, my cap seemed to cope with them on, and they had served me alright in the past. I go and lay down on my bed to catch a quick nap. 45mins pass, and I wake up again in time to go get some food.

Shields are still tiptop and no sign of pirates so I head down to the kitchen.

10 mins later I comeback to see a pod floating in space. Time of death was about 4 mins before I walked into the room. Gutted! Took me 3 more hours of jumping around places, and flying back to pick up the damn ore and cargo containers that had survived. Tanking 4 frigs in a badger II and trying to retrieve your container from a damn cramped asteroid belt is nigh on impossible.

1 more Badger II was lost before I gave up and got a kestral fitted 4 rocket launchers and pwned the frigs. Bought another badger II.. bought more cargo expanders, and went back to get my cargo. The damn frigs had respawned!!! I get away with about 2% of structure left. Hauled the cargo out in a kessie fitted with cargo expanders and a big assed AB in several trips before finally getting my badger out again, and picking up the larger stuff.

An entire night wasted because of NPC frigs! :(

I got warned about extreme lag in my region, but decided to take a shortcut through 0.4 anyway. Seems I went close to a low-sec player with cruise missiles. Didn't see him coming.

At least the nerf means it'd take more missiles to do that in future. That ship likely wouldn't even net a profit.

When m0o was fighting the old CFS we had some insta jumps that ran from JK-FIX (now known as Querious) through to Agil. I was in my mega, full rack of Modal Neuts, Large accom, all named shizzle following these instas. Now it doesn't take a genius to work out that following the instas through Arzani a 0.6 is a BAD idea when your -10 as we currently were. There is that split second when your heart sinks when you realise what you've just done...Megathron go boom Crying or Very sad

We lost more ships to those damned instas than we lost to CFS during that whole period. Negotiator was the best though, he lost his scorp in Arzani then bought and pimped out a Raven. Maybe an hour later he did exactly the same trick and lost his brand new Raven, I had to persuade him to see the funny side and not quit the game over that Laughing

In the end I had to send a corp mail telling everyone to delete them....so much for m0o proffesionality. Bunch of nubs more like Rolling EyesMadLaughing


Or better still the time John W joined us and then thought it would be a great idea to smart bomb a station and not warp away(Mainly cos u had him warp scrambled) omg we laughed our arses off at that.

Well the most funny one to me was on Angel Extraveganza bonus mission , me and my pal were in ravens , we agreed that he will tank the turrets and i will aggro the main group and take em out , at 70 km he was screaming from the insane dmg so i opened fire on them and i didnt notice that it wasnt only 6 jamming frigs but like 16 Shocked i told him to warp out and he was doing so i waited till he got out (BIG MISTAKE) by that tiem i already killed 10 frigs then there was like 6 more jamming me and all the 5 bs and cruiser were all over me , i was like star war movies Red leadr squadron "OMG they are every where" missiles and shells flying al over me i was poffed in like 1 minute later i was laughing non stop that i hardly made that BM to get my stuff back Very Happy

I was in taranis, in 0.0, and just finished to fitt it for PvP.

Being able to keep scrambler running for a long time was my main concern, i undocked and scramble the station like i saw soooo many people doing it on conquarable stations for fun ... that station was an NPC station, with 2 sentries ...

But the worst was to come.

Being in pod near the station, i saw that many T2 items survived, so i docked fast, took the first ships (another Taranis) and undocked to loot remaining items. Sentries killed me a 2nd time.
