On the 22nd November 2014 an X-Large Ship Maintenance Bay and a Ship Maintenance Array belonging to Galactic Skyfleet Empire was destroyed by six members of Thou shalt not kill, part of A Nest of Vipers alliance. The kills became a massive loot bonanza for those involved.

How did the six members of Thou shalt not kill manage to snag this loot, worth over 20 billion ISK? Well, the controlling alliance forgot to fuel the tower…

I reached out to Thou shalt not kill’s CEO KPomgPL, who was kind enough to provide a backdrop from the view of one of his scouts, who initially discovered the un-fuelled POS tower:

Loot pinata

“Wandering across WH I have entered C2 WH with a single Impel in space, no POS’s, no fleet.

OK, these do fly over but no wonder as this C2 has static to HS. I got the system probed, in the meantime checking D-scan and there appeared 4x Deep Space Transporters with no combat ships to cover them – same corp tag.

Intel went to corp mates six WH’s away, the quickest one Fibrizo Kravitz in Interceptor responded  and got tackle and killed the Impel.

In the meantime I found C3 and C4, C3 had no activity and so quickly I jumped into the C4.

As usual routine search for any activity and POS’s have shown no presence but on the very last planet there was POS with no Force Field on it despite of many shiny hangars (X-Large SMA, SMA, 2x Corporate Hangar).

Warped in at 100km watching POS and providing intel to corp mates jumping through the chain in tackle and DPS fleet.

Shortly afterwards there were 3x Deep Space Transporters dropping onto the POS standing doing absolutely nothing despite lack of FF, more than that one just logged off.

Our Sabre dropped in and bubbled them together with rest of our fleet got tackle on transporters and just dropping Tengu, Astero.

The Tengu escaped quickly, Astero and Occator got killed, last transporter got away by logging off. We secured entry WH’s expecting some resistance and unleashed fire havoc to hangars.

There was a single brave pilot trying to fly to the POS, I suppose trying to activate FF on it but was unlucky having quick transport to his clone.

The amount of loot was just staggering and this included 2x Thanatos – these got auto-destruct due to Outrider Skyfleet Corporation not willing to buy them off.

This whole looting would have not happened if basic safety rules were applied and followed.

After Phoebe release with it’s NS relic and data sites to C1-3 many WH players got relaxed to occasional probes in the system, assuming (wrongly) that a single scanner ship pose no threat – these transporter pilots ignored this basic WH safety rule.

Secondly Transporter pilots were flying over to HS and back with no backup whatsoever

Additionally it was found out that Transporter pilots were transporting fuel to the target POS so they must have had the knowledge of FF not being on.

Lastly Outrider Skyfleet Corporation directors got really short sighted as when the initial bubble/tackle was dropped there were 3 pilots within the proximity of POS and they were able to initiate FF however none of them had been given such rights – OK this wouldn’t have saved looting but at least would at least minimise the scale of looting.”

Keeping a POS fueled is something that takes a lot of time and some basic maths. We are not sure how long the POS shield was down for and whether it was just a blip in the maths of the pilots responsible for fuelling it which resulted in the loss of almost 60 billion iSK of assets or whether some real life event got in they way of the POS being fuelled. However I am certain that whoever was responsible will be kicking themselves. Great timing on behalf of the Thou shalt not kill corp members but really bad luck to the owners of the tower.

I have reached out to Outrider Skyfleet Corporation to hear their side of the story, so watch this space for any updates.

  1. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good success.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  5. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad
    for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  12. I think what you posted was very logical. But, what about this?
    what if you added a little content? I am not saying your content is not solid, but suppose you
    added a title to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Another
    Huge Loot Haul in Wormhole Space is a little plain. You could look at Yahoo’s front page and
    see how they write news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two
    to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your website a
    little bit more interesting.
