Wednesday of Fail - 2011/11/23

You know it's been a shitty day at work when various co-workers get into various scraps with the boss for various reasons, when a co-worker has to meet the HR agent because of the complete ineptitude of yet another co-worker, and when YET ANOTHER co-worker stays barricaded in her office because her ex-boyfriend is a complete and utter douchebag. All this means only one thing, it's a Wednesday. But what better way to turn the shitty tide than with another installment of the Wednesdays of Fail! This week's entry was submitted by Naoru Kozan of The Tuskers. He and his mateys were out in Essence Low-sec space doing their Yarrrin' thing when they found a Gila to tackle who was ratting belts in numerical order; yeah, that's pretty safe right?. Having an ex-corpmate who has an on-going love affair with the Gurista cruiser, I know how nasty and effective this ship can be, except for one thing... I would bet my mom that my buddy Felix does not fit it like this:



[Gila, Socratic's Gila]
Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II
Warp Core Stabilizer II

Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Large Shield Extender II
Heat Dissipation Amplifier II
Magnetic Scattering Amplifier II

Small Diminishing Power System Drain I
Rocket Launcher II, Caldari Navy Gremlin Rocket
Heavy Assault Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Torrent Assault Missile
Heavy Assault Missile Launcher II, Caldari Navy Torrent Assault Missile
[empty high slot]

Medium Core Defence Field Purger II
Medium Core Defence Field Purger II
Medium Core Defence Field Purger II


Ogre II x7
Ogre II x4




And to think I was amazed last week when the victim was sporting a single T2 warp core stabilizer, this guy has to sport 4 of 'em and yet died to 3 frigates. I'm pretty sure that one more and he would've gotten away! But I passed on the rigs... mmm'yeah, the shield recharge rate must be working good, especially at such a ridiculous price. The mids are nice and tanky but apparently they don't do anything else. The high slots... I'm sure something better can be done, but I'm no pro at Gila fitting. But two things tickle me: first is the ton of drones that were left in the ship, but this being a drone boat it was bound to happen. No, the thing that really hits me is that even with the benefit of "All level V" skills, all this doesn't fit on the CPU level, and I mean REALLY doesn't fit: EFT shows 486.75/437.5. Yeah, something had to be offline, and not just the small NOS. Which was superfluous anyway because even before putting it on the fit was 100% cap stable! So all in all, a pretty weird and funky fit all around!

Naoru Kozan, you sir will be receiving 612,960 ISK, your killboard's value for the Small Diminishing Power System Drain I. The reason: I have no fucking clue what it was doing fitted on this ship! Gratz dude and keep terrorizing Hevrice and its surroundings :)

Do you have a funny killmail you would like to share with the community? If so, please evemail the killboard or BattleClinic link to Cozmik R5 in-game, or send it via regular e-mail at r3dfiv3@hotmail.com

Just as WDA and Ga'len have done in the past, the sender of a killmail that has been posted on the blog will receive a small ISK prize, the value of a random module fitted on the ship; dream on if you think I'll pay for Faction, Complex or Officer mods!

Keep your eyes open for Fail, and rid New Eden of these atrocities!

Like the meme goes 'I see you are new here.' :)

This is Socratic, the most famous omg-what-a-fit-Gila pilot in New Eden. Dramiel too, although one of his recent Dramiel fits is almost good.
Just go and check his KB on Battleclinic. My words won't have enough power to describe his failures. It seems, this guy has a lot of money too.

Also, it is quite...brain damaging to talk to him. Speaking from personal experience.

Yeah, that's pretty much what Naoru told me; I've never seen the guy but he sounds quite "entertaining" :)

oh and for the fit: implants someone pod this guy, I bet he's got expensive implants as well.

Nice educational comment there Felix!

And yeah, to anyone interested, I've seen that baby in action; pure win :)

Cozmik... if you want a peek at who this guy is go here:

Basically some people got fed up with Socratic and effectively "banished" him to low-sec through a very convoluted, yet entertaining, backstab.

Oh man that was awesome! Thanks for posting this XD
