So, after what seems like forever (two weeks) I am finally someone in New Eden. No longer need I worry about being another grey anonymous mouse. I am known in the game. Yeehaa.
So, the situation.
Like you probably have read the last couple of posts, I am really in to ninja looting the living crap out of missioneers. And I’m becoming more and more aggressive in doing so. Shoot at me if you must, I can dodge a lot of thingies. So finally, some people are starting to get annoyed, and the insults and taunting in local begins.
First victim was a missioneer in a big ass battlecruiser, who was using projectile turrets. Great, that means you’re far far away from the wrecks, and I can just loot all your stuff without a sweat. This particular player got so annoyed, she immediately destroyed the wreck as soon as the NPC ship popped. Denying me the chance to loot the wrecks. She talked a little smack in local, but nothing to much. Funny stuff, to be expected. I am stealing her loot after all.
After this some couple of more runs where I got some easy loot, and some narrow escapes. Mind you, all from flying in between NPC ships. Cruisers, battlecruisers, battleships …
So anyway, I finally come across a dude who is just finished clearing an huge ass plex, leaving me to loot some pocket change. Also, he tells me in local to salvage what I want, he is in a hurry and doesn’t want to. Hm, sounds like a trap, but it’s like 30 wrecks, a shit load of admiral this rear admiral that. Big ships …
But then I remember this player Alysa Vanprice , who I often see in local advertising her non pirate salvaging ways. She pays 200k for salvaging rights after you are finished with your plex. So I figure, why not try and sell this huge filled plex to her. So I convo her up and before I even get started, she blows me off. Ok, not everyone is as classy as Hanz Riemannder, her loss I guess.
I swap back to my scanning alt and do my stuff, and suddenly notice she is talking crap about me in local. Warning people not to do business with me, how I dared to offer her this proposal. In short, all righteous and white knight kind of crap. I forgot a couple of screenshots here, crappy me …
After that I was amused, and didn’t really think any of it.
I then docked up, and bought a Minmatar Vigil frigate, because of the speed. I have noticed the link boosts my scan alt gives me really makes a difference, so I want to try a pure speed ship to ninja.
I needed to jump 2 systems to get the newly bought Vigil, and when I landed in the new system, I saw this …

I am alive !
He lives !
All hail the king !
To be or not to be, that is the question !
Alysa Vanprice, you just made my day. Seriously, thank you. For two weeks now, I have been a dick in the game. Alert, that doesn’t mean jack shit, it is only a videogame remember. But, I was starting to think the PVE people in EVE were kind of braindead. But they are not! Because as you can see, I am now notorious. An evil do’er. A vanquisher of the light. A harbringer of doom.
So her she is, the happy maker of my day, but also the focus of my attention. Shame on her to belittle my favorite time spent in this game. Oh tho righteous one, how can I annoyeth tee best with my evildo ways? She flies around in a Noctis all te time, begging her way in to salvaging wrecks for a mere 200.000 ISK.
So just out of curiousity, I went back to the plex with the 30+ wrecks in it I was offering to her, and I salvaged only the big wrecks (admiral, rear admiral) with my crappy salvaging skills.
Yep, that’s right. 5 million ISK worth of loot, and that is just by salvaging the things I could be bothered to. Alysa Vanprice, shame on you. Now who is a pirate? Who is ripping people of with a 200.000 ISK offer? Who is the evil do’er now?
