Supercapital hunting team #REKKINGCREW claimed another victim today at 18:39 ET: a Wyvern-class supercarrier owned by Valla Tian of the alliance Synergy of Steel [SYN]. Caught in the system of Bimener while travelling through the region of Derelik, this Wyvern marks the fourth supercapital killed within a week by the same group.

Hax. [HAX.] pilot Taraas Enko spotted the Wyvern moving into the system of Audesder at 07:30 ET today and quickly formed a fleet of scouts and heavy interdictors to intercept the supercarrier, according to #REKKINGCREW leader RoCkEt X.

This pilot made the mistake of repeatedly jumping to the same cyno pilot, allowing the hunters to effectively predict the Wyvern’s next midpoint. The cyno pilot was quickly tracked to the system of Bimener where he lit a cynosural field for the Wyvern. RoCkEt X details the events leading up to the catch here:

[ 2015.04.15 19:21:16 ] RoCkEt X > Well, we went into the system with one of the HIC’s
[ 2015.04.15 19:21:22 ] RoCkEt X > he had a cyno up but there was no wyvern
[ 2015.04.15 19:21:37 ] RoCkEt X > so i bookmarked the cyno and went back through the gate
[ 2015.04.15 19:21:46 ] RoCkEt X > our scout sat in audesder said he jumped out
[ 2015.04.15 19:22:12 ] RoCkEt X > so i YOLO’d back into bimener and the cyno was gone, so i warped to my bookmark and he wasn’t on scanner
[ 2015.04.15 19:22:27 ] RoCkEt X > he couldn’t have got off scan that quick, so i knew he must be cloaked on the cyno
[ 2015.04.15 19:23:06 ] RoCkEt X > so i lit our cyno too and bridged the fleet in
[ 2015.04.15 19:23:22 ] RoCkEt X > sure enough we made a 5km ball around our cyno.. almost immediately decloaking him

The Wyvern pilot hoped to avoid capture by jumping to the cyno at the end of its cycle, giving little time for potential hunters to warp to the cyno. However, with the spot already bookmarked by the hunters, the Wyvern had little chance of survival as it was quickly decloaked.

A video produced by JSSix of Nihilists Social Club [NULL] reveals the final moments of the Wyvern.

With his most recent supercapital kill, RoCket X attributes the success of #REKKINGCREW to the proactivity of his members. He believes that the crew is built around “people and groups who go the extra mile to find content, and work collaboratively on the intel we find.”

The hunting team is mostly comprised of members from Hax. [HAX.], Nihilists Social Club [NULL], Pandemic Legion [-10.0], Purple Helmeted Warriors [PHEW], Parental Control [PC-X] and Hard Knocks Inc. [HRDKX].

RoCket X also had this to say in response to criticism that members of Hax. were inactive during their time at Northern Coalition. [NCDOT].

I’m very pleased that since joining up, HAX., the former NCdot corp of only 9 members, is helping us create all manner of content – as of yet we have not lost any slowcats though.

However, with the recovery of RoCket X’s broken kneecap and his imminent return to work, supercapital pilots across New Eden can breathe a sigh of relief. Though with the incoming changes to garage door cynos, he promises that the rest of #REKKINGCREW certainly has no intention of easing up.

    Well, I’ll tell you, TISHU has lost it’s fair number of slowcats. We’d be happy to provide guides, just send a message to Lex Arson in game!

  • Fact Checker

    Hmmm….really we only have 9 members? Surely thats a typo…if not Taylor04 (CEO) is going to be very upset to learn that we lost 84 members today…upset indeed….and you don’t want to upset the boss! http://evemaps.dotlan.net/corp/Hax.

      HAX were a solid corp, but I don’t think anybody will notice that much missing other than a few cool dudes no longer in alliance chat.

      In NC. a corp either provides FCs, supers and titans, or line members to fill CTAs. HAX didn’t seem to provide any of those in any of the timezones I was playing in. If you asked most people in NC. they would all say you scanning down holes was worth twice as much as the rest of your corp combined.

      To be honest yall will probably have more fun not living in the middle of all our shitty blues anyways.

  • uhhh

    Garage door cynos?

    • The Voice Of Reason

      cynos on towers that are onlined without a starbase shield up due to lack of entering a password (which can be done at a moments notice)
