Alliance tournament (AT) ships are always pricey, but generally very powerful. The AT XIV Caedes is one of those. This Blood Raider Covert Ops frigate packs a bonus to scanning, the Blood Raider nos, neut and web bonus, classical covert ops bonuses, and sports a full set of bonuses to small energy turret.
This very complete set makes it an excellent site hunter—if not the best—for those who can afford, or have won one. And that is what TehEbil1 from The Tuskers did with his, being quite efficient with 169 kill marks on his baby! That was until he lost it to Eosian Inquisitors, a new type of NPC.
It is de-Caede(s)-d
And this is yet another successful patch story: the Eosian Inquisitors, as per usual for something just added to the game, were not automatically added to the overview. Even worse: their ID was bugged, and they would not show up between brackets in the space view!
As TehEbil decloaked his hundred-billion-ISK frigate to aggress a lonely scanner, he suddenly found himself targeted and tackled by invisible enemies. His ship was soon™ destroyed, and a petition was sent to CCP.
After a short investigation, CCP decided to refund the ship due to a mistake on its side. As per usual in these cases, only the hull and modules that did not drop were given back. The ship conserved its 169 kill marks as can be seen in this picture.
