Is it just me?

Ok, we're a small alliance, and I know some of my guys couldn't pvp their way out of a wet paper bag. The rest of us however are at least average. And unless I'm totally mistaken, people willing to do opposed POS assaults do no usually "give half our system's loot" do some dweeb in a Golem and his two battlecruiser buddies...

So after rounding up a fleet that could go after a Golem and two BC, probably under sleeper fire, we did what we're slowly getting better at: One ex-Golem

Incidentally I suspect our timing got lucky as hell, I'm not sure I spotted a single rep-cycle in. I think we caught him on a piss-break at a safe spot. His two buddies were no where to be found and bugged out right quickly afterward.

Oh well. Pay attention when you smack someone. Waving Golems in front of any PvP'ers only serves two purposes: chum, and keeping the PvP'res happy. Nothing motivates PvPers quite like a potential Golem kill 30 jumps away. Ah well, live and learn, since there were no losses on our side that were part of that op, the loot (including about 100mil in blue loot oh and thanks for clearing out some of the sites, they really do clutter up the scans) goes to the end of the month prize.

For PvP ops, we've got a policy that any loot on a specific op goes to people who lost ships on that op. If there were no losses on a specific op, they go into the end of the month pool for the guy with the highest kill total. This month's prize is looking rather nice so far.

Yep, I've got the prize can (minus one damaged mod), and this month's killboard leader must be salivating :)

It's always fun when someone underestimates what they think is a carebear alliance, only to get face-melted. And btw, this was the blooding of my Broadsword so this joker wasn't going anywhere >:)

Does that mean the Obie and all the loot inside of it is going into the end of the month?

@Chi: Negative. The Obie was not a PvP kill but a treasure found in space. And if it had been killed in PvP, dispatching the loot of something this big would have to be discussed.

Move to Syndicate.

Well, there are good Kestrels to be found there... :))

@chi nope, so far it's a little bit from that pirate kill in mya and the loot and salvage from the golem kill.
