And another POS goes bye bye

About a week ago a "PvP" corp (or Pirate corp - sometimes it's hard to tell) setup a small POS in one of our inhabited systems. After scouting their tower out for a a few days, the plan was firmed up by various pilots in AMC. To quote one of my pilots "I stare at them, they stare at me". We analyzed their presence and took note of their online times and all that normal intel work. Once things were in place (strategy - BS fits etc...) my pilots rolled in on friday night.

After an un-eventful putting the POS into re-inforced on friday night we found out that they had only put 17h of stront in their tower. Unusual but fair enough. So the 2nd phase was set for the next day at 23:00 eve time.

The end result of all the fun was that we observed them during the day evacuating the posessions they could. The final event proved to be un-opposed POS kill the next day. Once again proving that small towers are rather vulnerable. Still one would have expected a "PvP/Pirate" corp to have a little more fight in them than leaving our wormhole with their tail tucked firmly between their legs...

Lol at the PVP noobs. I hope you told them to learn to play or something.

So... you mean someone has the balls to put up a small POS in an already habitated system and then do nothing to defend it? And why small POS then? By a "PVP" corp no less? Me scratches head...

@Quivering Palm
There was a lot of that going on last night.

Gratz on the take-down!

So, How did this POS bash compare with the last one? Easier? Harder? Did armor-tankers suck?

Letrange said...

Well since it was unopposed this time it obviously rates as "easier"

heh i wished we had 17h timers..we always have a 1d 17 hour craptastic timer.

Given the amount of Isk/hour one can make in a wormhole system with a small organized group, they cut their losses on the POS costs and went looking for another hole. Seems odd that you guys sat and watched them evacuate the valuables though… perhaps there is more to the story.

@seriouslycasual
my response was getting long enough to justify a new post.
