11/05/15 – 1 Nyx destroyed. – 26.8B ISK

A Nyx piloted by Tristania Fenix of Black Serpent Technologies [MAMBA], Black Legion. [MEN.]  is destroyed in the system of Ertoo, Aridia, by members of #REKKINGRUSKI.

Raknor Bile, [MEN.] fleet commander, simply stated that it was “lowsec rus simply doing there thing.”

3Better of LowSechnaya Sholupen [-LSH-], leaders of the #REKKINGRUSKI crew, supplied the following:

The story is pretty similar with the previous one. I was in Yehaba with one of my alts and decided to make a little trip around. In shirshocin I discovered 2 [MEN.] guys, one of them was in space cloaked. A quick killboard check showed him as aNnyx pilot, the second one was presumably his cyno. The cyno soon undocked in an impairor and went down to Aridia. Knowing [MEN.] supers would possibly go to fountain through ertoo (last time they prepared bait there for us and killed Rad1st‘s moros when we caught another [MEN.] nyx (if they hadn’t been so bad in baiting they would have killed many more dreads). Hoping I didn’t give myself away, I moved 2 of my HICs into khnar and dedicated cyno proteus and called in other #REKKINGRUSKI members. He hadn’t jumped yet so we had plenty of time to prepare everything. Eventually, he did jump, I failed with scanning him down, but Rad1st did not. Tackle was estabilished, cyno was lit, dps ships entered, the nyx quickly expoded. That’s it.

11/05/15 – 1 Nyx destroyed. – 22.6B ISK

A Nyx piloted by Darth Torn from an NPC corporation is destroyed by members of the #REKKINGCREW in the system of Jaymass, Derelik.

RoCkEt X provided me with the following information:

The target was logged into a stationless system next door to our home system. It’s not unusual for people to send neutral alts to keep an eye on us, and it’s fairly routine for us to work out who the pilot is so we can work out who is watching us and why.

Research on Darth Torn showed us that he wasn’t watching us at all – but had flown a Nyx way back in 2007-8 and went inactive in March 2009, moved his super to derelik and put it in a ‘deepsafe’ before logging it off. The only reason he’d still be there is if he was still flying it.

The first day we were onto him, he logged out without ‘safe-logging’ which of course didn’t exist when he went inactive in 2009. I launched probes to try and get him, but he was already into his e-warp when I landed. Today of course he landed and cloaked right next to our scout…

I was hoping for a hilarious solo Nyx kill, allowing him to log out before aggressing him – but with downtime coming up, I couldn’t be sure he would log out… so I had to make a move and formed the #REKKINGCREW onto a titan… we only had 3 HIC’s so as he started to engage them with his fighters, I called in titans for the headshot to end it quickly, which of course they did!

The pilot Darth Torn stated that it was “usual human stupidity as he landed 3 times on the same spot in 2 days.”

11/05/15 – 1 Nyx destroyed. – 26.2B ISK

A Nyx piloted by shemesta of Random Acts of Violence [R4G3], Distant Drums [DD] is destroyed by members of the #REKKINGCREW in the system of Tastela, Domain.

RoCkEt X provided me with the following information:

So for this one it’s another story of some poor dude returning to the game after a few years away and being unlucky enough to be caught in our cross-hairs. One of the #REKKINGCREW dudes was doing some scouting in the Tastela system and came across 2 characters in local, One was Zarthanon, and the other was Shemesta. They both left local simultaneously, turns out Zarthanon went to highsec and Shemesta logged out – but didn’t safe log so we probed out the Nyx. At the time we didn’t know which character was flying the Nyx, so had to do some research.

Zarthanon had a history flying a Nyx, but Shemesta didn’t. Locator agents put Zarthanon in highsec, and Shemesta logged out in Tastela. By looking at eveboard we were able to find out that of the two chars, Zarthanon had a lot more skillpoints and was capable of flying alot more than just the Nyx. We figured that the guy was using Shemesta as a holding char, and eventually sent Zarthanon to Stain (we don’t know why, it wasn’t really relevant so we didn’t bother looking into it).

We then used Zarthanon’s activity via watch list to work out his timezone (as the only other information we had was from eve-kill etc, and he’d been inactive for years so the information was out of date).

Eventually of course, as with all supercap pilots – he logged in and died. Tastela is at the edge of our range, plus we were staged for 4 different targets simultaneously; for maximum mobility we deployed our blackops fleet… which is getting some impressive numbers now (40+), with the added DPS of a couple of dreads we had staged nearby.

At the current time of writing I have had no response from the pilot who lost the Nyx.

11/05/15 – 1 Erebus destroyed. – 117.5B ISK

A Erebus piloted by Lector Kanwari of Angry Angels Constructions [.AAC.], The Kadeshi [THOR] is destroyed by Confederation of xXPIZZAXx [PIZZA] and friends from The Imperium and Pandemic Legion [-10.0] in the system of 4-07MU, Catch.

Stephan Schneider, an adept super capital catching pilot from [PIZZA], stated that he “saw a cyno go up in the system, warped there, tackled a titan, got forced off, titan decided to take gates afterwards with a great fit and got caught once again”

Cobra Kanwari, the main of the Erebus pilot provided me with the following information:

I was moving the ship to catch and I checked that 49-U6U was clear so we prepared a small support fleet just in case. I openedd the cyno there and jumped in the Erebus before warping to the 4-07 gate.

While the Erebus was aligning the first sabre joined local and landed on the Erebus. Bubble went up but our small fleet was able to scare him off. I was interrupted in aligning because the bubble stopped the warp so I hit align to the gate. In TS we shouted out to form a fleet but before the fleet was on the way my small support fleet was on grid and started to kill the sabre. While that happened more and more sabres landed on the cyno. The titan get bubbled more and more but the [THOR] fleet was doing awesome work and was able to kill the dictors and the titan was able to warp.

I jumped the Erebus through the gate together with 3 other dictors. They startet to bubble again. I aligned the Erebus to a safe spot in 4-07 and the [THOR] fleet jumped in to 4-07 and started to kill the dictors. Unfortunately there was too many. We continued killing them and they brought new ships. Our sub cap fleet was on grid and doing a great job. We informed DARKNESS. [DARK.] about the situation and they started to form up.

We decided to jump in slowcats to help the titan and keep killing enemies. On the tackle overview the amount of dictors was decreasing. At some point there was 0 dictors on the field so it was just a matter of time before the titan was safe. The delve guys were able to tackle the titan but not able to kill this titan and they know that. So after a long time of fighting (I slow boated about 95 km from the gate whilst aligning away to the safe) we were waiting for the last bubble to go down and warp off but then a PL cyno went up and they dropped in and killed the titan. PL was not able to do the initial tackle but they was able to kill it so very good work on that formup by PL!

Kadeshi and Darkness did an AWESOME job on form up! So we was absolutely able to handle Pizza and friends but PL jumped in before I could escape. I want to thank Kadeshi and also Darkness for showing up and for this AWESOME work!

12/05/15 – 2 Nyx’s, 1 Leviathan destroyed. – 167B ISK

One Nyx piloted by warhammer91 and one Nyx piloted by Pent, both from the Fighters of the Rising Sun [F0RS], Dangerous Voltage [DV] are destroyed by the Confederation of xXPIZZAXx [PIZZA] and friends from The Imperium in the system of N8D9-Z, Delve.

[PIZZA] have provided no response with regards to how they were caught and the pilots themselves have yet to provide any information. However, [DV] acquired sovereignty of the system only 4 days prior to the losses and Pent is on the loss mail of the [PIZZA] Territorial Claim Unit. This could imply they were online to take other sovereignty structures.

3Better from LowSechnaya Sholupen [-LSH-] stated that:

In killing the Erebus everything was simple again. Halkbot found him in perbhe with his cyno. While we had been preparing a trap, he jumped to Ahraghen less than 10 minutes after he appeared in perbhe. We set up HICs in each system which could be his next possible destination. He brought one of his cynos in Marmeha and jumped there 15 mins later, We caught him and killed. That is it.

At the time of writing no information from the pilot has been received.

A Aeon piloted by Chamun of Angels of xXRevivaLXx [AOXX], EMPIRE OF LIBERTY [V.I.P] is destroyed by #REKKINGRUSKI in the system of Yehaba, Aridia.

3Better from LowSechnaya Sholupen [-LSH-] stated that:

The Aeon kill took a lot more effort. 2-3 weeks ago we were waiting for the Solar Fleet [SOLAR] Erebus to log in right before DT (he had been killed later). Rad1st, Halkbot and me had a char in Yehaba. 10 min before DT a rapier came in and started doing undock BMs and spots in space. These actions often lead to something juicy jumping in. Less than 40 seconds before DT he lit a cyno on the fartherst planet in the system. Rad1st and me warped to the cyno at 10 with cloaky t3, but Halkbot did the same with a HIC, which was a huge fail, and I was raging afterwards. An Aeon came in and got tackled, but there was nothing we can do with him for 10-15 seconds. We got his spot and he must have had no jump cap. He had little chance to resume his travel, but we had to wait for him now.

He has been offline with all his known chars until tuesday when he logged in his cyno char. We put all hands on dick and went to loginscreen with the HICs on his spot. The Aeon logged in 2min 15 sec before DT and we had roughly 1 min to kill him. Our fleet consisted of 6 supers and around 15 dreads. We didn’t succeed and he survived with DT with a little bit of armor and full structure. That was my fail because I should’ve lit cyno before I got tackle on him, that would’ve given us 10 more seconds to loaded/siege and all that stuff. I mailed him with an offer of buying his super for 10B (that wasn’t a scam). He didn’t respond though.

Yesterday he was online since DT and Yehaba had a char which had been sitting there for all that time which gave us hint of him willing to log in today this day again. In the evening we decided to log out all of our tackle/hictor chars and clear of the Yehaba area. I went on my jita alt and started watching a tv-show keeping an eye on WL. 20-30 mins later WL blinked with his name and he died.

At the time of writing no information from the pilot has been received.

17/05/15 – 1 Nyx destroyed. – 36.3B ISK

A Nyx piloted by Quintessa Sky of Angry Angels Constructions [.AAC.], The Kadeshi [THOR] is destroyed by Pandemic Legion [-10.0] in the system of 4-07MU, Catch.

Not much is known about this loss as neither the pilot nor [-10.0] have provided any information at present. One thing to note is that the system is also where the Erebus, piloted by Lector Kanwari, mentioned above was killed. Therefore implying that this could also have died in similar circumstances whilst attempting to travel through the system.

Update: DON’t SHOOTMEPLZ commented at the bottom of this article that; “He/she was a straggler on a move op who yolo’d his Nyx through a regional gate that was needed unless you wanted to do a huge cyno chain and also did it without having a support fleet. It happened just before downtime, however there was enough titans to dd him off the field. We even had a few titans not get on km.”

[-LSH-] provided the following video relating to their last 3 super kills.

Once again this week shows similarities between the kill mails with the majority being killed by [PIZZA] and #REKKINGRUSKI resulting in a total of 527 Billion ISK lost, reaching approximately half the amount of ISK lost compared to last week.

Next week we shall return with an update on the upcoming week’s Super Capital losses from across all regions of space.

Clearly as this is a new format please be kind and give your feedback in the comments below or contact me via [email protected] or via an in-game mail.

    I like this far more then reading one such article every day. if you keep up the comparisons between weeks and maybe later even months, this could develop into something im looking very much forward to read after each eve week 😉

      Thanks for your comment.

      Clearly this is still being developed but as more information and statistics become available it will be possible to expand further. Providing that entities continue to supply information of course.

      Plus we will still do articles on those out of the ordinary kills such as the 2 triple super kills this week. Just depends on how they happen.

      Thanks for reading!

        I think it’s a great concept, and ofc it might develop over time. I’m looking forward to it. Having seperate news for extraordinary kills is absolutely ok, but this way all those kills which pile up won’t clutter up other news anymore, and one can read them in a more condensed way. You already did comparisons with the prior weeks, and if this continues for a while it would be great to expand on that (maybe eben a graph? we all love graphs!)

          Eve is just spreadsheets afterall. So maybe it’s something we can do.

          I did a super summary for the end of the month in March comparing all those lost but never got round to it in April. Hopefully with this new weekly summary it will allow me to keep on track with the month easier.

    Awesome article m8! Does anyone know if the Nulli super that died today was a counter drop? I thought Nulli and PL were teamed up to help xdeath.

    majority of these super kills are due to watch list mechanics.

    it is not exactly fair that people know exactly when your character logs in, and with locators, where it logs in.

    All of low sec is now covered with alt HICs and probers, no matter where you are, if you are in a super and known, if you log in, chances are you will be probed out before you even finish your log-in warp. All because of a watchlist. its a problem i think.

    OK, a super capital is not a solo ship, yes argument can be made this way, that it should not be flown without support, but there is something unfair about these automatic watch lists, just giving intel.

    Yes a game can show that you are online, but as an account perhaps, somehow, not as specific characters.

      You have a good point but the majority of people that are caught just do the dumbest things and basically give PL or whoever free kills anyways.

    Regarding quintessas nyx. He/she was a straggler on a move op who yolo’d his nyx through a regional gate that was needed unless you wanted to do a huge cyno chain. Also did it without having a suppprt fleet.

    Happened just before dt however there was enough titans to dd him off the field. Had a few titans not get on km.

    I enjoy reading about how these beasts are lost every week. As a suggestion, you could include a small graph at the end detailing ISK loss per week. As more data is collected there might be some interesting trends revealed.
