Who says low sec isnt profitable

Be gentle this is my first time writing for eve pirate. Recently i had one of my most comical pirate adventures in my short time as one of eve onlines evil doers.

As a pirate i tend to fly solo alot but through combat ive made friends with a number of other people who plunder the same area as me. One of these groups is Sniggwaffe and Pandemic Legion. While roaming around with a small gang our scout reported a freighter in Ussad. Exicted at the thought of mudering some poor bears caremobile we quickly gathered on the gate. We were dismayed when our scout reported that the freighter appeared to be at a moon with a shadow serpentis large pos. Our scout then reported that strangely this pos had no fittings and even better no forcefield :-).

Cleared for publication by: Ander
Our scout warped to the moon and quickly identified that the freighter was sitting at the pos and the pos was unanchoring. Due to the distance involved he was forced to bookmark the pos and warp out and back in to get the tackle. There were a few nailbiting moments while he warped as we expectantly humped the gate to the system. The call went out that the freighter was tackled and we dived in. As we shot into warp to the target our tackler reported he was being damped by a lachesis and had lost the lock!. Fortunately he was able to get close enough to retackle and we swiftly arrived and dispatched both lachesis and freighter.

Note token noobship on killmail :-)

We then loitered around the area getting a few more kills (involving a funny fight with a myrm and a raven were PL couldnt engage so me and a couple of sniggs had to kill them with our terrible dps which took forever). Once the tower unanchored we grabbed it and i was happy with the thoughts of my 100mill share of the profits.


The Next Day

The next day i logged in within the ussad system and immediately got another gang invite from a PL guy. Accepting i asked what was going on i was quickly told

Fitzwilli > there is a tower unachoring in ussad firk

Another tower i thought? Turns out it was the same guy unanchoring a tower from the night before. Happy at grabbing a medium TS tower we sent some scouts out to check near by systems and low and behold

Fitzwilli > go to 5 3
Fitzwilli > plantet 5 moon 3
Firkragg > rgr
Firkragg > lol another tower

We found a few more after that. Turns out this guy was unanchoring all his POS towers in the area at the exact same time. He kept trying to get to towers before us but we managed to scoop all but one taking our grand total to

1 Large Caldari Tower
1 Large Amarr Tower
1 Large Shadow Serpentis Tower
1 Medium True Sansha Tower

My share came to a cool 350mill isk and never again will i leave a system without checking system for POS and forcefields :-)

As a tasty after treat we also found a hurricane autopiloting through low sec

Key item is the centii A-Type Small rep it dropped which was also worth a nice bit of isk. You gotta love people who dont check thier autopilot settings before going AFK.

I hope this story was interesting enough for the eve pirate readers. The next one i write will be filled with pics and more shooting i promise but i couldnt let the tale of the worse pos manager in existance go untold :-). I must give a big thanks to Gneeznow and all the other snigg and PL crew who i had a wild few days flying with.

Meat Missle on :

Tasty.

Firkragg on :

Sorry this story isnt full of stuff exploding. Ive just joined outbreak though and ive already got some fun pew pew tales so ill get them up soon.

Meat Missle on :

it's fine, its actually a good lesson, check out POS every so often, you might find a steal. Good payout too, very nice.

Ant on :

hey Firkrag \o
Outbreak, huh? I'll be seeing you than :-)
Nice story, tasty loot.

Anaxys on :

It's also a very good lesson about the proper care and feeding of ships on autopilot. I've made that mistake once -- fortunately, it was just a hauler with nothing special fitted, rigged, or aboard.

Thanks too for sharing good tales of life in the outer reaches.

Mynxee on :

Evil deeds are evil deeds, whether they involve much pewpew or not! It's all about attitude and ISK, anyways :-) I for one enjoy reading about pirates outsmarting others or doing horribly devious things as much as--and maybe more than--pew pew writeups. Nice writeup...enjoyed it.

Firkragg on :

Funnily the local carebears in the area believe me and pandemic legion are being paid by another corp to steal towers and kill ships in that area. How i wish that was true

Sharky on :

Im not an EvE player but I like these reads and am interested, I didnt understand half of your story cause I dont know what Pl. or POS towers are.
