A routine act of catching a titan travelling through Aridia ended with a twist today. -LSH- scouts spotted a lone Ragnarok jumping to a cyno and tracked both the cyno character and the titan pilot. As soon as the titan jumped to a cyno in Maseera, the hunters entered the system, scanned down the Ragnarok, decloaked it, and tackled him.
The hunters immediately offered a 30 billion isk ransom. The Ragnarok pilot Oxbow, who had just gotten the titan judging by his killboard, proposed a counteroffer: he ejects from the titan for 70b.

[ 2015.06.24 14:44:38 ] MojoMojo > after the sell
Dreadnoughts immediately starting sending the payout, but in the form of X-Large Antimatter charges. Apparently, Oxbow decided not to wait for the completion of the transfer and ejected.
-LSH- hunters immediately terminated the transfer and boarded the Ragnarok.
[ 2015.06.24 14:45:19 ] Oxbow > you steal a 1/2 blue titi
[ 2015.06.24 14:45:21 ] Oxbow > ok
Of course, TMC asked the new owner of the titan about the Ragnarok’s fitting and what he is planning to do with it.
3Better > It has T2 travel fit. No deadspace modules in cargo. I’ve already found a buyer offering 100 bil.
Raw footage fromthe -LSH- perspective depicts the moment of Oxbow ejecting from the titan and the dreadnought pilots bitterness at being denied a kill.
