When Sniggerdly CEO Hedliner laid into former Sniggerdly pilot Me of Course over his killboard performance, he unknowingly set into motion a chain of events that led to far greater losses for Pandemic Legion. Me of Course, who was already planning to leave the alliance at the end of the month due to real-life obligations, decided to use his corporate roles to send a strong message on his way out.
By the time the smoke from the sabotage had cleared, two titans and five supercapitals under construction had been cancelled, and almost 1900 jump clones (a large number of which were for supercapital or titan pilots, and had high-grade implants fitted) were destroyed at the M-O Keepstar. The station’s rigs were also destroyed, and anything not bolted down was seized in this moment of rage – including a reported 300 billion ISK in fuel.
When we reached out to Me of Course, he confirmed the story on Reddit as essentially correct, and gave his side of the events.
“Well, what Asher posted was rather accurate as to what happened. Basically, Hedliner took it further by deciding to go back into my history and pull up every single loss that I happened to have while krabbing to try and maintain some ISK in my account, for both PLEX, ships, etc, etc.
Honestly, I was planning on quitting quietly at the end of this month (the moon I was mining was pretty much gonna be my last pull before I got dropped by Bomber’s Bar and this kicked off) because of RL obligations.
Rageliner’s go at me basically just threw me over the edge. I pretty much just said enough was enough. I had roles to steal a bunch of stuff and incidentally do a bunch of damage, so just went with it
In the end, as I only had two characters to steal things with (both my mains), I split them up between the north and south. Me of Course was in 9uy, and honestly the only thing i took was from the corp hangar there, figured it would’ve given up the gig too fast if i was sitting in the gunner seat of the fort with Hedliner in system, while Me of course was up north in a JF sitting in TRKN and a cyno char in M-O. And well…the rest is now history. TRKN jobs got cancelled—unknown how much was in there—and M-O clones got destroyed
My only regret about all of this now is that it seems that PL leadership is deciding to hold everything that I did onto one other person and basically forcing ‘em to reimburse what was destroyed (said person at this point in time is liquidating everything they have, but is extremely short) also pretty much made a deal with Hedliner, who I do hope holds up his end of the bargain to let previously mentioned person off the hook in return for everything taken.”
It isn’t every day that a theft like this takes place, and it just goes to show that there are a lot of things more important in EVE than one’s killboard metrics.
