Ninja's Win Again

I also wanted to give a shout out to Paul Clavet, and his ninja buddies. They popped this ridiculous Paladin...

Battleclinic puts it at just under 30 billion, but discussion and research puts it at closer to 40 billion, with all those officer fittings. Although Paul himself wasn't on the mail (maybe one of his alts?) it was Internet Jerks and Suddenly Ninjas that I recognized on the mail. Gets me thinking to the recent petitions pertaining to ninja activites.

With luck they got him without renewing the aggro timer and having CCP petitioned for a replacment. I still can't believe that bullshit... "I was dumb enough to shoot back and then forgot that aggro timer in the upper left corner please give me my ship back".

I mean, for real, they have stiffed me on much more sketch stuff in 0.0 that was their fault. To see someone petition in high sec with no lag or faulty game mechanics (did I mention large font aggression timers are hard to miss) makes my blood boil. How about you hold your fire instead of trying to swing your marauders proverbial ballsack around and let the ninjas go on about your business. The moment you take that potshot you asked for it (just reminding you, aggression timers are yellow or red and in the upper left hand corner of the screen, in case you didn't know). They can come back with any ship they want and unless you are in the habit of fitting a point on your missioning ship, they can engage and disengage at will. So if you don't like it, don't be a cheeky bastard and keep your guns off the ship. Petitioning afterwards makes you a whiny bitch.

That is all.


Theres a visual aid. No excuses.

EDIT: After reviewing the news and comments today, turns out they got the Paladin by suicide ganking him on a gate. Even more awesome.

"Im not an Alt. =) And this was no Ninja-Typical kill. We found this Paladin in his Mission, Ship-Scanned him and set up a suicide camp at a gate.

In all fairness, that's less than half an inch on any serious size of screen.

half an inch? So are most other things on the user interface...

although in all fairness, I play on a 42 inch.

I don't think it's the player that we should be negative to, for trying to get some free isk back by petitioning. It's CCP for not making a decision and giving the ships back to the player. They need to say that either it is an exploit or it is not an exploit.

If it happened to me and I thought I'd get a ship back for free, I'd petition too! (Not that I'd loose it ;) )

Great post, I couldn't have said it better myself.
