Looking at someone with a name like Swaghetti Yolognaise and a suspiciously empty killboard, you could be forgiven if you suspect ulterior motives for joining a corp with a fairly relaxed recruitment policy, and proceeding to lose something like this.
I’m just speechless. No AB on a bonused hull, officer Invul, and frigate-sized plates. I was dying to talk to this guy, and managed to get hold of him:
TMC > I have to ask you about that phantasm, props for flying it but what were you thinking?:)
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Figured I’d fly something shiny to excite people
TMC > and how much was the flippin’ invul!?
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Made a few pretty good hauls from mining a couple days ago, thought I’d shell them out on something ridiculous
Swaghetti Yolognaise > oh, like 2 bil?
Swaghetti Yolognaise > something like that
TMC > what were you mining, titans?
Swaghetti Yolognaise > I forget
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Hahaha not quite those 😉
TMC > Can I ask why you left out the afterburner?
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Didn’t cost enough ;0
Swaghetti Yolognaise > nah, didn’t bother sticking one on, I was rather sleep deprived
TMC > Seriously, cmon you’re messing with me now – it has an AB bonus, they go really fast:)
Swaghetti Yolognaise > I have.. a few midnight builds that I’m not very proud of. That was one of them
TMC > Ok, well have a quick chat to Rixx about fits and lay off the officer mods for a while?:)
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Hahaha well that depends on if motivation strikes in the next 3-4 hours or so
Swaghetti Yolognaise > I’ve had many worse builds hahaha
Swaghetti Yolognaise > I usually fly Stabbers and Rifters on a serious level, if I’m in anything else its most likely another of my retarded experiments
TMC > I might check your kb, ta for the info bud, I’m afraid this one is going to be immortalised in an article.
Swaghetti Yolognaise > Oh, defs send me a link when it’s done
Swaghetti Yolognaise > But yeah, I have… a few officer mods lying around spare for special occasions like that one 😉
TMC > will do, take it easy bud
The CEO of the Stay Frosty corporation also suspected this was an intentional loss. Whether this is very expensive killboard unpadding or genuine late night fitting inspiration is left as an exercise to the reader.
