Today it seems to be a day a good day for supers to die. 5 supers have died so far and the day hasn’t even finished yet. Time for a quick recap!
The NPC Aeon
this Aeon was lost not in a epic fight or an amazing time consuming bait attempt, no this Aeon was lost due a pilot mistake. When going AFK from the game for a long time you usually make sure that you have your super at a save spot to then log off. When returning you then fly an alt to system to check if everything is save. Then you login and do what you have to do such as getting yourself save inside a poss.
Shumanus forgot to do this. He logged in his super at his safe spot while doing that a member of Coastal Brotherhood Scanned him down and obtained his location. Quickly he made sure his friends knew about it. quickly after Shumanus logged of they started preparing cloaky hics and got them at the supers logoff. after waiting some time the inevitable happened. The super logged in and landed at the same place again. Hics quickly decloaked and got him pointed down. A small Cap fleet (2x dreads 4 carriers) warped in and quickly secured the kill.
Pandemic Legion On A Fishing Trip
PerseusKallistratos was one of the FCs for this trip and he told me briefly what happend:
PerseusKallistratos: So maka Convo’d me last night not too long after I got home from school, said we had some targets tonight. I sat in comms with him and screwed around in Doril with some guys while we waited for a poco timer in syndicate to come out. Local was a bit shady, we didn’t think the guys would drop supers there. Sure enough, timer came out and a bunch of bombers entered system (10ish) and started hitting the poco.
We were about to go but then we noticed a Ivy League & Friends fleet. They were hunting the same rabbits as we were; those rabbits were online and sitting in their pos. So we waited, and within 5 minutes cyno goes up, and 4 supers jump onto field. Maka and I are discussing the merits of dropping with a bs heavy subcap group on field, and decided it was #nofear time. Second cyno goes up on supers and Ivy League & friends drop making initial tackle. We move supers to final midpoint and I pop
NCDOT AFKer Awakes
Just like the NPC Aeon, Ishbuanium logged in his Nyx after being AFK for a long period. He logged at an location where used to be a NCDOT poss. This was because the system was used as deployment system for the Fountain war. After logging in he landed at what used to be a friendly poss however because the NCDOT tower got taken down he landed in a hostile one. The poss engaged but he managed to escape. Unaware of the new Logoff mechanic he warped himself to a save and then logged off. While all of this happened a scan ship started tracking him and managed to get the supers log off position.
QUickly a message got send out to FA & Li3 about the situation and immediate action was taken. Dictors were brought in system to tackle the super. FA & Li3 formed a Dominix fleet quickly and immediately traveled to the Tackled nyx. Once arrived it took little effort to kill the nyx and FA & li3 returned home.
