Solopirating in lowsec in an AF, finally finding a target (Thrasher), killing it, getting some nice t2 stuff, followed by me forgetting my ccd and jumping into highsec. I was not happy with myself.

I took out my Rapier for the first time since before the remote sensor damp nerf...

Running around in a roaming gang. We pick a fight in lowsec with a bait ship, get jumped by a gang about the same size as ours and I get locked down in my rapier. One of our guys somehow 1-volleys the crow that has me locked down with cruise missiles and I warp off with 36% structure left.

Stupid me warped to a gate with a global aggression timer still active. I land on the gate and get instapopped by the sentries. Oops.

Oh well, the rapier sucks ass now anyway. It's sole purpose is a ranged webber. It can no longer reliably defend itself the way it once could. I'll probably never fly one again.

gatecamping in an unrigged drake (old ship i hadn't refit from back when purgers were 50m a pop) i jumped through to chase something down. Missed it anyways (he uncloaked on the extreme far side of the gate) and suddenly realized that unrigged drakes can't solotank sentries. Crap, just before i hit armour i managed to warp off to the first thing i could click on, being planet 1. warp to planet 1 and hey, the warp in point happens to be just within sentry range of two stations. ship went down quick.

shortly after this loss my alt was bringing me down another BC, and a solo hurricane was sitting on the gate waiting. crap, shoulda scouted. he made quick work of my hauler, and in a rage i recruited a corp mate, himself in a 'cane, and grabbed the only ship i had available to me, a caracal, to go after him. We jump in, he engages my corp mate, i decloak and open fire thinking he was aggroed...well apparently his counter had expired from killing my hauler and since my corpmate was -10 that didnt aggress him either, so my caracal instapopped. corpmate thought i was in a BC too, and suddenly found himself vs another BC and sentry fire.

another time i came home from the bar a little early and decided to get some eve in before i had to go to sleep for work. after annoying all my corp mates with my loud drunken slurring i promptly passed out on the gate. (thank god they were kind enough to gang warp me to a safespot before docking up for the night).

Got killed by sentry guns because i had a 'remote sensor booster' fitted instead of a regular one, so concord took it as i was aiding NPC ships and prompty popped me at the gate.

I havnt been a big pvp'er, but thought about getting into it. So i get invited into a little fleet op, where they are ganking a squad sent vs them. I undock(ive just woken up btw), get half way there and realise im on 1/2 armour, on a shield tank.

Not a problem so far, they can wait they said.

Ok so i dock, repair and head out again(i really should have realised by now it wasnt my day). So i join their chan, but their all english, the accents are killing me so im having a lot of trouble figuring when their talking to me (marak sounds very garbled with an english accent). Thats cool lets keep going.

We jump the ships we were after, i even got a shiny new kill mail, yay im happy, so their all talking in vent, relaxing away and im thinking ''but theres still one left? why are you all so relaxed'', long story short ive somehow targeted one of the fleet members, and am smacking him around quite severly with a torp raven. Luckily juts before i got to armour i picked out teh words 'javelin torp' 'still hitting me' '**** who is it' over vent and realised my mistake Embarassed

In my own defence, fleet members were turned off overview, no idea how i targeted him...

could have been worse, but it didnt exactly make me look like the smartest guy on the planet.

This was back during an empire war, I don't remember who it was against. Anyway, it was something like my second time flying a Blackbird in PvP, I had a nice named setup that worked impressively well. I'd been on the ball that day, locking down enemy BSs left and right. So we're playing station games with the enemy gang (they're the ones in the station) and a Vaga decides to chase me. I jam him, warp to a can a long distance off the station, then warp to the planet when I get damaged. After a few rounds of this, I warp back to the station, and there's a new hostile in an Eos. Lock, turn on jammers..."You have foolishly engaged in criminal acts within sight of sentry guns."

He wasn't a war target. I got BBQed before I could align anywhere.

Why couldn't I just die to the Vaga? Sad

Maybe not the most embarrassing moment but a stupid one anyway...

This happened in the first days of me joining TRAPS. I was relatively new to the hole empire war thingy and was sitting in some station eager for something to shoot at with my new shiny maller (!).

Suddenly a red star appears in local channel...This was enough to set my heart pounding and fill my noob empire war brain with beatiful visions of me engaging in a glorious firefight with lasers burning and the adrenalin pumping in my veins.
I undock from station with expectations of glory in my head.
Outside is a lonesome frigg, decorated with a red star, floating around outside station...

Well, all of you that have some experience with empire wars knows what it REALLY means when an lonesome frigg is innocently buzzing around your station. It means that the innocent little friggie is not a innocent little friggie at all, rather it means that he's entire corp probably is lurking behind a gate close by, waiting eagerly to gank your ass if you're stupid enough to engage.

To make everything even more embarrassing our ceo had posted several corpmails that clearly stated:
"Be very careful when engaging lonesome targets outside stations, they are most probably bait..."

I think many of you involved in empire wars recognize my reasoning that followed...:
"Well, maybe I can pop him and get away real fast?", or: "Maybe I can blow him to pieces and dock up real quick?" or the best argument of them all: " Maybe he's NOT bait, maybe I'm just very lucky..."

I engaged.
I did not get away very fast.
I did not dock up after blowing him to pieces.
I was definitely not very lucky (very stupid mostly).
I just died horribly.

Nowadays a lonesome wt frigg outside my station is enough to send me into a state of paranoia...Shocked

Just barely got assault frigs and I was so damn proud that I'd actually trained up to a ship instead of the learning skills that I had been grinding for the last two months before-hand.

Buy me a Vengeance and fit him up the best that I can, used EFT to maximize my DPS and tanking attributes, and finally dolled it up and took it out.

Flying around, just testing it on some rats in highsec, I see a four person mining corp in a belt, 1 in a Hauler, 2 in Miners, and one Myrmidon. The Myrm is only a week old character, so I figured I could easily take him, without issue. Yeah, I'm only in a frigate, but I know his SP isn't high enough to take me out.

So I flip a can, he engages, and I start hurting him bad. He warps off (has freakin' warp core stabs fitted) and I felt disappointment.

The next day, same scenario, same people in the same belt with the same Myrm. I flip the can again and lock onto him, waiting for him to engage. Sitting there without him doing anything, I decide that I want to flip another can of theirs, shift-click on a piece of ammo in my cargo and drag it.

I slide my hand up to hit the '1' on the keyboard, but being that I was on a laptop, the F1 key was in a different place than where I was used to. I see a rocket fly off, hit the Myrm, and BAM, Concorded.

Worst part of the story? I had grinded out missions for a week to get from -2.5 down to -1.9. Thanks to my happy mistake, I was set back above -2.0 Mad

Faffing around in Venal camping a station with a bunch of guys I undocked in my brand new first ever stealth bomber to have a play. There were about 6 or 7 people camping the station with some PA hostile inside.

I practiced cloaking, uncloaking and targeting one of my corp mates. All good so far... Suddenly the hostile undocks and all hell breaks loose as everyone starts firing.

I panic as I am about 15K off station and start copping damage all of a sudden. Stealth bomber tank melts before I can decide which object to warp to and I'm warping my pod away. As I am I notice the hostile has docked.

Hmmm... If he agressed... Oh crap. Corpmate had autolock on... Corpmate killed my brand new stealth Bomber which hadn't fired a shot.

I didn't buy another stealth bomber for a year. Just felt unlucky then. :-)

I blame myself...

Loosing a Nighthawk for perfectly no reason at all. The story.... :

Bought myself a shiney new character, ok..he's a -10 pirate, but who cares! He can fly a nighthawk, has twice the SP of my main, and was a bargain.

After installing a ****ty 17" CRT as my secondary screen I enter the joyfull world of mult-accounting. Or so I thought.

A few days after this, I want to do some shopping in Stacmon, highsec....with my industrial. My beautifull Nighthawk, fitted with a cloak, will monitor the stacmon gate in Ostingale, and sit 300km from it. Wait, this char doesnt have bookmarks yet...ok We'll make it 100km.

Warp to..100km from gate....press cloak.

Meanwhile, my highsec main is going in shopping frenzy ; So many bargains! Ohh and this..and that! hey damn thats cheap! *munch munch*. After about 5 minutes I realise I've not been watching my left monitor at all. But who cares, I'm cloaked!

Wait. Why do I see my own ship? And what is that nighthawk doing there 22km away from me?
Eh..oh-oh. Shocked ****! Why is my cloak not turned on! [I pressed it twice Crying or Very sad] !

Got scrambled, my main helpless in an industrial . The other nighthawk doesnt by far have enough DPS to get my own maxed tanked out Nighthawk below 75% shield...but every minute one or two The Church alliance members in various battleship sized ships start pooring in and tickle my NH.

I cancelled off the 2-3 ship strong reinforcements from my corp after I notice there's about 7 of them near me, dont want them to lose more ships because of my own stupidity Confused

And so the NH went pop. My first NH. It was pwetty. And ebil.

Lesson : Dont sit at gates, or dont sit ANYWHERE uncloaked being a -10 flashy, uncloaked, not paying attention Cool

Serious cases of Death Star Trench Syndrome effect me when i try and use a t1 Frigate (usually a punisher) to take, head on, a battleship thats tooled up with target painters/has a support fleetSmile

What i've done that was just...moronic (although i didnt die!) was engage a dominix in a bubble, in my drake. To anyone that knows me...i love drakes and am a huge advocate of them as sexy sexy ships. However, engaging this domi was a bit of a dumb one, esspecially when his friends turned up in another domi, 2 destroyers and an interceptor. Instead of trying to flee, i sat there and thought "meh i'll be fine." and am happily placed about 5km from the bubble's edge...webbed. Luckily due to the awesome tank (drakes ftw) i manage to take down the two destroyers and get the inty to hull, before the domis mwd back to the gate. The lesson here - although you win, it dosen't mean it wasn't stupidVery Happy

Roaming around null sec, looking for isk farming ravens. I scan one out, bump and engage out of cloak. Mmmm.. he's using Einherjia(sp?)'s... oh, crap.

At least I was able to warp out, lol.

Then, after my embarrassing lolz, I went a system over, found a 3 month old noob corp raven pilot, and I got pwnt Embarassed.

Of course, this also comes close:

Hard to pick one.

Ok here goes, HED-GP is under siege, Im in SV5 trying to intercept anything coming from south. BoB guy in a drake jumps through, I'm on gate in Ishtar, I start attacking him, gate activates local goes up, I totally freak out thinking the rest of his mates are incoming. Cant really afford to lose what I'm flying (stupid mistake #1)

I warp off leaving my drones behind. I check local while in warp and it turns out the jumping guys were blue. We all missed drake and someone had scooped my drones. (stupid mistake #2)Sad

Two of my dumbest losses:

1) Flying in my vagabond in 0.0 on the day the Thermodynamics skill comes out. Hostile hyperion aggroes off a station. I orbit at 15 and let rip, calling for backup to try and gank him before he redocks, or lure him out of dockrange. The thought he might have heat crosses my mind, but I think "it came out like eight hours ago, he could never get the skill and get here in time"

Result: vaga webbed, he overheats his mwd too timing it all beautifully and gets in close, I go in closer and deaggro and the guns stop hitting so I'm all spamming dock, also telling my alliance he has a faction web like a noob. Someone brings in a falcon alt so I align, guns start hitting again, the jams fail and I die Crying or Very sadLaughing

2) Long day of fleet pew-pew then I bring my jag on a roaming gang. After 16 hours of EVE I log in a pos after ganking a vexor at the gate. I have aggro and I get probed and popped and podded. I'm convinced I didn't have aggro and I'm halfway through the petition the next day (I didn't think they could have popped me in two minutes with what was on the mail) before I realise that I did log with aggro and it was all my fault.

I've had a couple other dumb losses, including a huginn to an isk farming raven while dual accounting; that one I didn't log on for a few days after.

On Thursday I decieded to go out on my first pirate raid. Personally I didn't have a warp scrambler (was training for ethnical relations like a madman), so the first couple of solo attempts only resulted in my prey being scared off. One of my friend logs on, and we deciede to do a sweep, he got a scram and two ecm modules in case **** hits the fan, so we travel from our home base, up to around old man star. I consulted my low-sec maps, and I took a left at the system before old man star.

The moment I enter the system, I do the usual stuff, scanning 360 from the gate, and I see a hulk. I could not believe it, a HULK in lowsec! I narrow it down to 30 degrees and then warp to the belt he is in. I yell to my confederate "Scramble him!" He do, and I imediatly makes a attack run with my incursus, blasters spewing out antimatter into his shield. About the time we got his shield down to around 60-50% my friend yells: "WTF! I am dead!". I am like WTF? I did not see any drones. At this point, I feel it in the marrows of my bones. This isn't a hulk mining in low-sec... It is a hulk mining in high-sec. I pan around, just in time to see concords finest training their guns at me, and I die in a torrent of fire that would have crippled a titan.

We head into villore, get new ships, and laughs our asses of. We keep laughing about it the entire evening.

Still new to PVP and I usually just fly assault Frigs but I figured I'd try out something with more firepower so I fitted a Rupture and head to a belt to mess with some miners. I find someone in a destroyer and his corpmate's in a cruiser so I flip the can. These people were 2 months old so I didn't think they'd be much of a problem. The Destroyer guy *****es about me taking his stuff so I say "It's there in the can, just take it" Didn't think he'd fall for it but he did. I promptly kill him while his corpmate just sits there. Weird I think, I still have him targeted so no big deal.

The destroyer guy keeps chatting to me and *****ing about how he's gonna get even. I wasn't paying attention to the belt as his budy in a BS comes in and since I was still flagged for stealing from their corp starts doing major damage. I totaly froze and by the time I realized that my tank was holding and would have held long enough for me to destroy the BS the cruiser joined in and whipped me out. I was ****ed at myself for freezing. I still can't believe I just sat there.

All 4 ships I lost so far I've learned something new! I just hope I don't make the same mistakes again.
