Titans Destroyed, Station Trashed as PL Member Storms Out

Ryan 2018-05-07

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.

    PL seems to sink deeper and deeper.

    At this point its clear they are only a shadow of their former self and they cant seem to find their way up again.

    It woulnt suprise me if this year many pilots jump ship and we havent seen the last theft or rage quits within PL.

    What is this about someone else being made responsible for th theft? I don’t understand

    • We have reached out for additional clarification on that situation, and intend to update the article if we can shed some more light on this.

        Ryan, is there a place where I can see changes? Was there clarification?

    • I’m going to guess that as he was leaving anyway, he might have given some/all of the stuff he sold to someone else still in the corp, who then had to explain how they suddenly owned all the stuff that just got stolen…

      Well if you ask me, the one who is responsible and the one who should be made accountable is no other than Hedliner since thanks to his piss poor leadership skills the whole thing happened. They should make him pay and then give him the boot. But I guess he gives hed to the important people in pl so he can blame it on someone else and gets away with it.

    With a CEO like Hedliner, we don’t need goon saboteurs.

    Tips for making this a proper news item:
    1. Reach out to PL as well for comments,
    2. If PL doesn’t want to directly comment on it (which is likely the case here), say so in the article and check forums for PL comments.

      INN always reaches out to both sides. Sometimes they don’t get a response immediately or there is a planned follow up interview. It’s proper news, regardless, as it’s all true and what is immediately available. That’s why there are updates or second articles all of the time. That’s how things work here and in the real world, both.

        It’s only proper news reporting if you specifically state when/if involved parties are not available for comments.

          Its not PL’s narrative…

  • apparently this was the Rorqual he lost. for the whole issue started over.
    ( but from glance this fit is standard… for any miner to have)

        Still should’ve had time to get help from his ‘friends’, with that PANIC. But maybe PL don’t help one another out, they just bitch and moan?

        • Carvj94 Arrendis

          Yup. If your doing anything non combat like mining and your zkill isn’t 70% green your literally treated as a second class citizen in PL. Only bait Rorqs get guaranteed assistance in their home systems.

    Thats quite simply the difference between PL and Goons, Goons we actually have respect for one another and treat each other like humans, Fuck PL and their elitist dumbass ways. RIP PL and you are well deserving of what happened.

      And GS_ISK isn’t a ponzi scheme.

      • Dingleberry Jones Knobber

        Correct, it’s for goons to buy in to raise the price of things for leadership to sell. It’s market manipulation using it’s own members. Nothing really wrong with it, it’s just lame.

      EbilFairy; Well said. Another important point that may very well apply to this game is : “never let your emotions dictate your actions” A little squabble about something trivial may lead to a far greater event.

  • Wow, the perfect intersection of ratting drama and killboard drama.

  • Wtf

    You are stupid if you give it back and your mate is even more stupid to take that shit. Just tell him to leave. Wtf is u with you guys wanting to stay in a corp and alliance that treats you like utter shit. It’s weird.

    • Carvj94 Wtf

      The real head scratcher is what kinda bullshit is going through PL leaders heads that they decided to pin this theft on anyone other than the the thief.
