“You shouldn’t fly what you can’t afford to loose.” is a well known sentence in the EVE Online universe. I personally love this principe and mutate to an awoxer when people decide to not follow this unspoken law of EVE Online….
It’s a short story: While plexing I saw a Worm on my D-Scan. A few minutes later one of the local pirates became suspect blinky and the Wormpilot asked in Local to stop the agression against his shiny ship.
The pirate honestly accept and asked for a ransom. 25Million ISK. “Wow…this is cheap, for a worm” I thought. But the answer was the most depressing I’ve ever read in local chat:
To clarify: Normally I don’t shoot targets of my own militia. Just when they’re red/orange to my corp/alliance or in special situations when they are in the NPC Corporation and acting really stupid. Flying a 70 Millionen ship with a 200 Mill fitting when you can’t pay the ransom of 25Mill ISK is stupid…really stupid.
Like this one.
Dear pilot. If you read this: Please do not fly anything what you can’t afford to loose! Thank you!
PS: I’m not the alt of “Alexander Alanis”. Just in case you start the crying in militia chat again…
