Fail Mail Friday for 13 August 2010

Welcome to the our next installment of Fail Mail Friday. This is where we showcase a kill mail that we pirates would call a “failure”.

A note here, no, I am not going to discuss the recent epic kestrel that was destroyed in Jita, you know, the one that had 74 PLEX cards in cargo that were lost. There has been enough discussion on this particular fail mail and yes, it will forever be know as the “most epic fail mail of all time”.

Of course, discussion of said fail mail is allowed, but do keep it civil and respectful. Do remember that we are all capable of utter failure in fitting a ship and/or loosing said ship. It’s how we learn to get better at fitting out our Internet spaceships, so, if you have a suggestion on how this particular fail mail could have been properly fit, that would also be most welcome.

Now, onto the fail mail of the week.

This week’s submission comes to us from a Twitter update by the lovely Mynxee. Here is the link to the killmail and below is a copy of the fitting that you can use with EFT.

[Nemesis, Valla katesh’s Nemesis]
Expanded Cargohold II
Expanded Cargohold II

Civilian Shield Booster I
Small Capacitor Booster I,Cap Booster 150

Medium Beam Laser I,Multifrequency S
Small Proton Smartbomb I
Covert Ops Cloaking Device II
Standard Missile Launcher I,Piranha Light Missile

Small Algid Energy Administrations Unit I
Small Ancillary Current Router I

For those of you who do not know, this ship is a stealth bomber. About the only thing on this ship that is proper would be the cover ops cloak. Normally a stealth bomber would have siege launchers in the high slots to allow for firing of torpedoes and being that this ship was in null sec, you would also fit a bomb launcher and the appropriate racial ammo for that launcher for maximum damage. The mid slots would have a micro-warp drive at least and the lows would most likely have some damage mods, in this case, ballistics mods for increased rate of fire on your siege launchers.

So, congratulations to Mynxee for our Fail Mail Friday submission. As being the selected for this week’s fail mail, she will receive the whopping 580,000 isk for one of the Expanded Cargohold II’s that was fitted on this mail.

Have a fail mail that you would like to submit? You can send me an in game email to Ga’len with Fail Mail in the subject line. You can also contact me on Twitter @Galen_Druid or send me an old fashioned email to and again, use Fail Mail in the subject line.

Until next time, have fun and see you out there!
