Since this past Friday, I have been receiving reports of a large heist performed inside Pandemic Legion:
PL just got heisted for around 500 bil ISK by -A- spy. The corp that was heisted was BDCI.
hey guys, there was a PL guy stealing apparently 500B in forms of assets (no isk) – Titans, Moongold, etc. The player name is [redacted], he joined -A- after his heist, maybe you can interview him.
Having no proof, I decided to sit on the story and wait until it started making some noise. Apart from the odd comments on Eve News24, K.com finally shed some more intel as the posters began spilling the beans this morning.
Rumour Round Up
Apparently Body Count Inc [BDCI] (Pandemic Legion) whose CEO happens to be CSM7 Chairman Seleene, had been stockpiling Super Capital hulls in preparation for the upcoming Technetium nerf. As the scope of the project grew up, the logistics responsibilities began to be delegated to newer (and less than loyal) members. One of these members took notice of the chance for a snatch and acted. The member ejected the super-capitals off the capital ship maintenance array and turned off the POS Force Field, there were several titan able pilots already waiting which hoped on the stolen Titan and went for a joyride.
Bobbechk from k.com commented:
Apparently we have been stockpiling Titans (For that winter derp we are still waiting for) in a ~~Secure~~ system in a bunch of CSMA
Somehow this -A- spy managed to infiltrate this small group of player that even knew about this and got a -A- titan to cyno in a bunch of titan capable pods next-door to pick them up as he jettisoned them and turned of ff
Centra continued the thread:
The supercapital production was supposed to keep us in hulls and provide income after the tech nerf. Unfortunately as more and more logistics guys got burned out jumping back and forth, some of the newer logistics guys were brought in to keep the project going. We rely on individual corps to vet their players, but, once again, BDCI dropped the ball.
This is the second time BDCI has had a security breach in 6 months, so clearly their directorate is asleep at the wheel.
Well played -A-, but I wonder if we’ll ever see those Titans on the field.
So far the name I have been given seems to match the corporation history, but so far everybody have been tight-lipped about this.
We’ll see how accurate these rumors will turn out to be – remember it could all turn out to be hot air, so take this with a grain of salt and for the time being keep your eyes open.
I have received an email claiming confirmation from a third party which matches the intel I had. The heist had been pulled by Skrypt from BlackWater Inc:
Okay, BUSA, MVN is trying to one up us on the spy game. Lets make the next one even more spectacular.
Our love for PL

So, many of you know – BUSA has a former PL guy that stole 500B from PL, isk, moo goo, ships, titan, etc.. Complete mirror of PL board, all PL Fits, etc.. lol
So to remind them , we are all naming our ships
Stay tuned for the NEXT Burn.. he is waiting to get more from them than Skrypt did..
Well done BUSA, but I plan on out doing you with my dude..
However, on the -A- Alliance chat the following message was written by Theng Hofses:
Theng Hofses > Can someone post on Evenews24 that the Skypt operations has nothing to do with the alleged theft of multiple titans from PL. They are two seperate events. While we confirm the Skypt operation (Tinkerman) we neither deny or confirm the other titan operation
According to The Mittani, it is all a troll:
Thanks for the contribution Mittens.
