Naming Surprises and Cheeky Disguises 2

In a previous post I showed you some of the interesting MTUs I have spotted that have been named by their owners. In this post I’ll show you some more.

MTUs that have been renamed by their owners are a somewhat rare sight, so whenever I spot one I always make sure to take a screenshot of it. It’s a little like trainspotting in a way, although much more likely to cause your friends and family to give you that look of concern mixed with disappointment, should you ever tell them what you spent your Friday night doing.

Rifter

The owner of this MTU attempted to disguise it as a popular frigate, but he couldn’t pull the wool over my eyes, which I decided to subtly let him know in local.

Local Chat

I do wonder if this naming strategy ever actually works, I find it funny regardless.


LGBT+ Rights!

The owner of these MTUs decided to use them to inject some sociopolitics into EVE, something which is almost always assured to get a reaction from others these days.


Forlong MTU

I think a more appropriate name would have been “Not Forlong MTU”, as it was dispatched shortly after this screenshot was taken.


Todays Poop

Whilst a few corpmates and I were engaging in some corp activities together, we spotted this MTU on D-Scan. From the name, we suspected that this MTU may have been used for illegally storing human effluence, and so we popped it shortly after taking care of our other business.


Next up, we have a few MTUs with Russian names to look at. I have used an online Cyrillic keyboard to type these words out, and then put them through an online Russian to English translator.

Russian

Бабушкин сундук
Translates to: Grandma’s Chest

Russian

Тянучка – М
Translates to: Tynuchka – M (noun. stickjaw)

цуксо
Translates to: tsukso

If any Russians are reading this, please let us know the validity of these translations.


Coward Toys

I have a feeling that perhaps the owner of this MTU was making some kind of statement about people who hunt MTUs, but I guess we’ll never know for sure.


Cargo Container

A corpmate found this sneaky ‘Magpie’ MTU hidden away behind an acceleration gate in the system of Penirgman, and decided to share the kill with us. That’s one benefit of being in a corporation with other MTU hunters.


Another example of a named MTU can be found in the thread on the Official EVE Online Forums that I use to promote this blog.

Nunosh

I’ll make sure to keep an eye out for that one!


Finally, let us take a look at a mail I received from a friend, a fellow MTU hunter named Berger Luckmann.

Berger Luckmann

Oh, let me grab those killmails for you.

Kill: Dace Cad (Mobile Tractor Unit)
Kill: Dace Cad (Drake)

Pix Severus hasn't been here

Thank you for taking care of that one, Berger, it’s very much appreciated. The name of that MTU is a reference to the containers I leave around highsec named “Pix Severus was here o/”, which you can read more about in this post.


..and that’s everything, all examples of named MTUs I’ve encountered over the years have now been covered. I’ll continue to keep an eye-out for more named MTUs in the future, but if you spot any on your travels, please take a screenshot and send it to me via EVE Mail in-game.

Naming Surprises and Cheeky Disguises

As I travel through highsec, scanners hot and probe fingers itching for some action, occasionally I’m met with a nice surprise on D-Scan. MTUs, like ships, can be renamed by their owner, but it seems that most people either don’t know this, or simply can’t be bothered to do it (probably the latter). So when I spot a named MTU, it is always rare, and always gets my attention.

In this post I’m going to show you some of the weird and wonderful named MTUs I’ve encountered over the years.

Sisters Combat Scanner Probe

Click on image for full size.

Some owners of MTUs attempt to disguise them by naming them after other things you’ll often see on D-Scan, in this case the owner named his MTU after the tool that would be used to probe it down. To avoid being tricked by this, always set your D-Scan to be ordered by Type, and have the Type column visible. This disguise was cheekier than a hamster with a face-full of nuts, and makes me smile every time I remember it.


Squidward

The owner of this MTU named it after a popular cartoon character, from a cartoon I never really watched (born too early, sorry guys).


0w0 what's this

I think this is the only time I’ve seen an emote used in the name of an MTU. This screencap is accentuated by the named Dominix above the MTU, who ironically GTFO when I dropped my probes on him.


Borderhopping

Some pilots use their MTUs for casual racism aside the typical PvE activities.


little beefy

I felt a little bad about popping “little beefy”, but cute name or not, this thing had to go.


#hashtag

This mess of an MTU name looks like a hashtag gone wrong; This is your brain on social media, kids.


Don't You Forget About Me

Whoops! Looks like this isn’t the first MTU this owner has lost.


suc it

Click on image for full size.

This rare ‘Magpie’ MTU did all the ‘suc’ it was ever going to do, before I came along.


I also remember one time, my corpmate and fellow MTU hunter, Alexis Thunderkunt, had an experience with a named MTU.

Alexis Thunderkunt > Lol, a Packrat MTU called “Touch/Steal = Suicide Gank”
Pix Severus > is anyone there with it?
Alexis Thunderkunt > Only one other in system, in a Proteus. He has combat probes out
Pix Severus > totally not bait

Bait or not, Alexis managed to kill that MTU regardless:

Kill: Jeremiah 1 (‘Packrat’ Mobile Tractor Unit)


That’s all for now, there are more of these to come in the near future so keep an eye out for that. Speaking of keeping an eye out, if you spot any MTUs with funny names out there, consider taking a screenshot and mailing it to me (Pix Severus). I’ll consider some kind of recompense for doing so, a small amount of ISK perhaps?

MTU Mailbag 3

It’s that time once again, for me to dig through my backlog of EVEmails and showcase the various comments and questions I receive from pilots across New Eden. Unlike some other hunters out there, I don’t mail the owners of MTUs I have popped, I sit back and let them contact me. I may change this approach in the future though.

EVE Mail

It is always nice to receive positive mails such as this one. I have always chosen politeness over smacktalk, even in my ganking days where I would receive nothing but death threats in return. Of course, there is a time and place for smacktalk, for example it can be used as a tool to get someone to undock who otherwise would’ve stayed hidden, and it can also anger some people enough in the heat of the moment to cause them to make mistakes. There isn’t much call for that in my line of work at the moment though, I’d rather make as many friends as possible right now.

One of my goals in New Eden is to get more pilots talking in local, as to me there is nothing more depressing than entering a system filled with dozens of people, and having not a single word exchanged between them. I believe that keeping it friendly is the best way to encourage more pilots to communicate with me, and with each other. After all, who would want to open their mouth when all they get in return are snarky responses?


EVE Mail

Let me grab those killmails for you:
Kill: Selcrim Arkenvos (Mobile Tractor Unit)
Kill: Gogela (Mobile Tractor Unit)

Those are some huge MTU kills there, thank you for sharing them with us, Shaela. A follow-up mail to Shaela confirmed that these MTUs were popped during the aftermath of some citadel attacks in Perimeter, hence the unusual loot found within.


EVE Mail

Thank you very much, Ieze, I do indeed have a lot of fun doing what I do. On another note, I tend to get a few mails titled “Sorry” from time to time, either for sending me random mails, or asking questions, but please don’t. I’m very happy to receive each and every mail I get, there’s no need to apologise.


EVE Mail

I received this rather cheerful mail from Elenow who was looking for tips and general info about the game, having recently started playing EVE with a few friends.

EVE Mail

I, of course, recommended popping a few MTUs, after all, that’s what I do. I realise that it isn’t for everyone, however,  so I asked her what she and her friends wanted to do. It seems like they were looking to get into the world of mercenary work, and had run into some trouble/fun in that regard, which Elenow’s killboard can attest to. The method of ISK-making I recommended was incursions, as it would help with learning to fly as part of a larger fleet, and pays-out extremely well. If I was to recommend an ISK-making activity today though, it would be wormhole exploration.


EVE Mail

This mail was formatted in such a way as to make it rather hard to read at my UI scale (90%, in case you’re wondering) so instead of resetting my UI, which is a pain, I’ve copied and pasted the contents below.

Hello and thanks!

Pix,

o/

I found your blog after randomly clicking on your character in local. I really enjoy reading it and wanted to say thanks – I have racked up quite a few MTU kills now using your guide and fits.

Reading your posts gave me an idea to further persue ninja salvaging and start a little project called The Junk Committee. It’s just a small group of ninjas that hope to work together. I haven’t got all the details ironed out yet though.

I wanted to pick your brains about ganking. I seen your killboard and you have done some ganking before. I was wondering how you pick targets, and where you shoot people? Is there any money to be made solo ganking?

kind regards
c4binfever
—————————–

It’s always nice to hear that someone has found my MTU hunting guide useful, as it makes the time I spent making it feel all the more worth it. Here’s c4binfever’s killboard if you want to see his MTU kills. His corp, The Junk Committee, was an interesting idea, similar in nature to my own corp, which at the time I received this mail hadn’t grown beyond being my own one-man operation. It seems that he had created his own blog at some point, named after his corp, and I remember getting a few hits from his blog as he mentioned mine on it. Check out his blog here: The Junk Committee.

Its not often this MTU hunter gets asked about ganking, but it was indeed a profession of mine, and is something that I still do in an opportunistic capacity. I won’t go into full details, but I gave c4binfever some basic advice in my reply. My advice to you, if you’re looking at getting into ganking, is to check out the MinerBumping blog, it has a great resource on how to get started. Otherwise, feel free to mail me and I’ll help you if I can.


After reading through these mails again, I was happy to see the different ways in which people found my blog and learned about my activities. Whether it was through the official EVE Online forums, my network of “Pix Severus was here o/” containers spread throughout highsec, or just from clicking my name in local, presumably after seeing me go suspect.

That’s it for this edition of MTU Mailbag, if you have any comments or questions for me, don’t hesitate to send in a mail. I reply to all mails I receive and there’s a good chance your mail will appear on this blog at some point in the future.

MTU Mailbag 2

A not-so-Empty You

This post will be the first part of a series, and will be concerned with the early days of my corporation, Empty You, as pilots from across New Eden began applying for membership.

During the spring of 2017, I had been taking a break from EVE after a somewhat disappointing and uneventful winter. I checked the EVE forums to see if anything interesting was going on, and found that I had received a bunch of EVEmails in my absence (this was back when the official forums had that feature). Two of those mails, received less than a month apart, were from two seperate MTU hunters, Oylpann Kumamato and Carnivorous Swarm, both of whom expressing interest in joining my corporation.

Carnivorous Swarm EVEmail

Oylpann Kumamato EVEmail

Here’s that killmail for you.

I wasn’t planning on returning to EVE for some time due to personal reasons, but after reading those two very well written mails I thought the least I could do was login and send them a corp invite, if they were still interested. Then, at the very least, they could work together if needed, whether I was there or not. I responded to both mails and sent out invites soon after, and thankfully they both joined. I say “thankfully” because recruiting these guys turned-out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my EVE career.

It wasn’t long before I ended-up back in EVE full time, the pull was too strong after witnessing the slew of MTU killmails these hunters were generating for the corp. It was during this time that I planned-out a rather nostalgic hunting route, which funnily enough would turn out to be another one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in this game. That route would take me back to the system of Ahmak, a special system to me, as detailed in previous posts here, and here.

The hunt itself went uneventfully, with no notable MTU kills to report. Upon arriving in Ahmak, however, I immediately spotted two blues in local, Niyalyn and one of his alts, and he wasted no time in greeting me. Niyalyn is one of the Ahmak locals I met through notme7’s chat channel during the events that took place there the previous year (see the two previous posts I linked above). We had a good old chat, and before I moved-on to continue the hunt, I threw him a link to my public chat channel, MTU Hunting (all are welcome by the way, we’re quite friendly) which he joined straight away.

Niyalyn Local Chat

With two new corpmates, and another friend to chat with on the regular, this was a happy time, as no time is more fun in EVE than time spent with friends.

Unfortunately, after a few weeks, Carnivorous Swarm decided he’d had his fill of MTU hunting, and suddenly, without warning, biomassed his character. When a player biomasses his character whilst being a member of a player corporation, all ISK in that character’s wallet is transferred to the corp wallet as “Inheritance”, which was something I didn’t know until I checked the corp wallet and saw an extra 700m+ ISK sitting there. As it was just Oyl and myself left in the corp now, I split the ISK evenly with him, as something to remember our fallen comrade by.

Mr. Swarm did contact me a few weeks later to explain why he’d left, he’d had some real life issues to deal with, and by the time he came back to the game, he realised he wanted to try something else. He also explained that he’s been playing EVE for a very long time and this was the 6th time he’d biomassed a character, which he does, I assume, to not get trapped in doing the same thing over and over. That’s fair enough I guess. I offered him the inheritance ISK we received when he biomassed, but he told us to keep it and use it to fund more MTU hunting, so that was nice of him.

Carnivorous Swarm’s legacy still lives on within the corp, as he still has the highest value MTU kill of any member since his departure. Prepare yourselves for this one, it’s a beauty:

Kill: Anejo Cazadores (‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit)

He also provided a couple of excellent stories to be published on this blog, one of which is already up here, but the other is unfortunately lost to the void, as the pastebin link expired (I didn’t know they did that). One last contribution he made to the corp were his ideas for medals that the corp could offer. All of our corp’s medals are achievement-like to help encourage hunters to keep on hunting. Here they are for your perusal; the first 4 medals in the list were Mr Swarm’s idea.

“Not My Jurisdiction” – Destroyed 50 deployables outside of high security space.
“Danger Zone” – Lost 5 ships in the line of duty (Killed by a player whilst MTU hunting).
“The Best Defense” – Destroyed 10 combat vessels in the line of duty (Killed players whilst MTU hunting).
“The Whale” – Single-handedly destroyed a target valued at over one billion ISK.
“Payday” – Looted over one billion ISK from kills in a single day.
“MTU Hunter” – Removed 100 MTUs from high security space.
“Experienced MTU Hunter” – Removed 250 MTUs from high security space.
“Advanced MTU Hunter” – Removed 500 MTUs from high security space.
“Professional MTU Hunter” – Removed 750 MTUs from high security space.
“Elite MTU Hunter” – Removed 1000 MTUs from high security space.

If you spend time popping MTUs and believe you are eligible for any of the above medals, you are welcome to join the corp to claim your medal, free of charge. If you wish to remain a solo player, you are welcome to join the corp, receive your medal, and leave the corp straight after.

Carnivorous Swarm, I wish you the best of luck in whatever you are doing now, and if you’re reading this, why not pop-into the channel and say hello sometime?

Around the time Carnivorous Swarm left us, Oyl had suggested to me that it might be fun to try something a little different inbetween popping MTUs, something quite similar that we can do together, and something that he had prior experience in.

To be continued.

Back For More

Oh, hello there, my name is Pix Severus, and it looks like your friendly, local MTU hunter has returned to New Eden after a much needed vacation. Expect regular updates (about one per week) from this point onward for as long as I’m actively playing the game.

I wasn’t planning on returning for at least another month, but I cut my trip short thanks to corpmate, and fellow MTU hunter, Oylpann Kumamato. You see, he has been on somewhat of a recruitment drive of late, and has been hosting his very own MTU hunting competition to run alongside the current Crimson Harvest event. Let me tell you, reader, those MTUs have been dropping like flies, and you know me, once I start seeing those MTUs pop, I just can’t help myself.

MTU Competition Mail

The events that CCP have introduced to the game over the last year or so have been an absolute bonanza for MTU hunters, with vastly increased numbers of MTUs laying abandoned (or otherwise) throughout the galaxy. These events also ensure that space is littered with copious amounts of abandoned drones, and someone has to clean all that mess up. I hope these events have been as lucrative for CCP as they have been for us; Long may they continue!

Competition Results

Lets take a look at how that competition panned-out, shall we? Prizes were donated to the competition by Oylpann, Niyalyn, and myself. Because of this, we left ourselves out of the running for any competition prizes.

The rules of the competition were simple, pop the highest value MTU within the timeframe of 21st Oct through 31st Oct 2018.

1st Place: Mikey G Udan
Winning Kill: Katelin Cadelanne (Mobile Tractor Unit) (273m)
Prizes Won: Stratios – 250m ISK – 69 Exotic Dancers, Female

2nd Place: Solacia Solette
Winning Kill: Phil McRackin (‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit) (187m)
Prizes Won: Astero – 125m ISK – 99,999 Tobacco

3rd Place: Deep Choad
Winning Kill: HYDARG0S (Mobile Tractor Unit) (138m)
Prizes Won: Sisters Expanded Probe Launcher – 75m ISK – 10 Spiced Wine

Those are some huge MTU kills there, congratulations to the winners! Also, I would like to give a huge thank you to Oyl for holding this competition. I think it would be a nice idea to hold a competition like this every time a new event takes place, but we’ll see how our wallets feel about that closer to the time.

Lets Get Nerdy

Our corporation performed outstandingly during the competition, exploding 237 MTUs worth a total of 6.78b ISK between 21st Oct and 31st Oct 2018.

Alexis Thunderkunt
Destroyed 12 MTUs worth a total of 170m ISK
Highest value kill: 45m ISK

Deep Choad + alts
Destroyed 16 MTUs worth a total of 575m ISK
Highest value kill: 138m ISK

Mikey G Udan
Destroyed 42 MTUs worth a total of 1.46b ISK
Highest value kill: 273m ISK

Oylpann Kumamato
Destroyed 61 MTUs worth a total of 1.47b ISK
Highest value kill: 187m ISK

Pix Severus
Destroyed 32 MTUs worth a total of 1.24b ISK
Highest value kill: 309m ISK

Solacia Solette
Destroyed 82 MTUs worth a total of 2.11b ISK
Highest value kill: 187m ISK

Ready for some pie?

MTU Competition StatsMTU Competition StatsMTU Competition Stats

Here are the top 10 highest ISK value MTU kills achieved during the competition:

Kill: GySgt Kossori (Mobile Tractor Unit) (309m)
Kill: Katelin Cadelanne (Mobile Tractor Unit) (273m)
Kill: Kejeki Trypp (‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit) (229m)
Kill: Phil McRackin (‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit) (187m)
Kill: Elksys Integreor (Mobile Tractor Unit) (183m)
Kill: Mufus hejro (‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit) (182m)
Kill: HYDARG0S (Mobile Tractor Unit) (138m)
Kill: Lumina Auduin (Mobile Tractor Unit) (136m)
Kill: Vasy Teran (Mobile Tractor Unit) (109m)
Kill: Krystoffer Shidoshi (Mobile Tractor Unit) (106m)

A big thank you to Solacia for providing the above stats.

One thing we have noticed during this competition (and the event in general) is the increase in the number of special ‘named’ MTUs out there in space. In the past, you’d be lucky to spot one Magpie for every few hundred standard MTUs you killed, but that has most definitely changed now. Lets examine this phenomenon further by looking at how many of each type of MTU we killed during this competition.

Mobile Tractor Unit (Standard): 220
‘Packrat’ Mobile Tractor Unit: 14
‘Magpie’ Mobile Tractor Unit: 3

MTU Competition Stats

So as we can see they are still relatively rare, however, I’d still say they are a lot more common than they used to be, considering the short amount of time in which these were found (10 days).

Finally, lets take a look at where we found all of those delicious MTUs, and which systems and regions provided the most bountiful harvest. We popped MTUs in 120 different systems and 13 different regions.

MTU Competition Stats MTU Competition Stats

I guess that data above can help you if you’re having trouble deciding where to hunt.

I’ll wrap it up here for now as there is still some time left before the Crimson Harvest event ends, and I want to get a few more kills in. If you have any suggestions for types of stats you’d like to see next time, drop me a mail in-game or a comment on this blog.

Happy hunting!

Vocal Local 7

One thing I have noticed during my travels throughout highsec space is just how quiet it is, there could be over 100 people in local, and not a single word is uttered between those players. This makes me sad, so I like to encourage discourse where possible.

This time we have a variety of random encounters and miscellaneous short messages to look through, as I travel around, and get to know, the denizens of high security space.

Local Chat

D-Scan

Occasionally you’ll find that players give their MTUs all kinds of humorous names, this one had me laughing for a lot longer than it perhaps should have.


Local Chat

I like receiving messages like these in local, they always bring a smile to my face. Usually when I receive these kinds of comments, they are often hit-and-run in nature, with the pilot having left the system before I get a chance to respond. I usually send them a mail afterwards in such cases


Local Chat

Sweetdevil was surprised to see one of the Federation’s greatest enemies warp into her asteroid belt; bloody Cardies. After this exchange in local she opened a private convo with me asking for advice on how to become a pirate. After some basic advice, I directed her towards one of my more pirate-natured friends.


Local Chat

Here’s that killmail for you; AngelEyezTheDemon had lost her Myrmidon to NPCs the day before I found her MTU, which contained the contents of the wreck of her vessel. Finding an MTU that had sucked-up the wreck of it’s owner is actually quite common these days, more so than it used to be, I suspect foul play may be at work but I’ll go into more detail on that another day.


Local Chat

MTU Hunters beware, there are hunters out there who are aren’t hunting MTUs, instead they are hunting the hunters. Although, those “in the know” will understand that in this specific example, not everything was as it seemed. I won’t go into more detail here, but needless to say, Bladewise runs quite the remarkable operation out of many of EVE’s busiest mission hubs.


Local Chat

Maja Chou spotted me on D-scan as I was probing-down an MTU in the system of Shaha. I am unsure what “tz tz” means, however, given the context, it may be a form of “tsk tsk” therefore implying that I’m doing something naughty. MTU Hunting isn’t naughty though, it’s a valued profession, so if anyone can shed any light on this, please leave a comment below.


Local Chat

Whoops!


That’s all for this edition of Vocal Local, but there is plenty more to come. If you see me in local, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with me, even a simple wave can go a long way. Who knows, you might find yourself featured in a future edition of this series.

MTU Mailbag 2

Ever since I began my career as an MTU Hunter, I have received quite a lot of mail from capsuleers across New Eden, and I would like to share some of them with you. Unlike some other hunters out there, I don’t mail the owners of MTUs I have popped, I sit back and let them contact me. I may change this approach in the future, for now though, lets dig through my backlog of EVEmails.

EVE Mail

I get asked this question a lot (amongst others), so I recently added an MTU FAQ page to the blog where you can find the answer to this, and other burning questions you might have about the wonderful world of MTU Hunting. Here are a couple of fits I use regardless: Hecate and Svipul.

I hear that the loadout site, o.smium, will be going down soon (probably forever) due to changes with the EVE API, so those links may not work in the near future. I’ll try to find another way to show you these fits when that happens. I would like to thank those responsible for creating and hosting that site over the years, it filled the void left by Battleclinic back in the day, and remained very useful to many right up until the end; it will be missed.


EVE Mail

A while back, to celebrate the release of my guide to hunting MTUs, I ran a competition on the blog where the first 3 pilots to post an MTU kill in the comments would receive 50m ISK each. Sith was one of the lucky winners, and here’s that killmail for you (it’s a good one!)

Kill: Vorian Tagarian (Mobile Tractor Unit)


EVE Mail

This is not the usual sort of question I tend to receive about MTU Hunting. Occasionally, when I set out on a hunt, instead of hanging around the busy mission-running hubs I like to set a long course to the outer reaches of highsec (occasionally lowsec) and explore, popping any MTUs I find along the way. To do this, I’ll bring up the universe map, pick an area near the edge of highsec (sorting map colours by security status) and start adding waypoints to all the systems in that area; this can often result in very long routes with over 100 jumps.

To answer Alasdan’s question above, there is always going to be some backtracking, unfortunately, largely due to single-gate systems and other areas that just end-up being dead-ends.

EVE Mail

Despite the answer to his question perhaps not being what he wanted to hear, he went with it regardless, and ended-up having himself a fun and profitable time. Here’s those killmails for you:

Kill: knorkle (Mobile Tractor Unit)
Kill: ThareaHUN (Mobile Tractor Unit)
Kill: Kilree EagleShade (Mobile Tractor Unit)


EVE Mail

This is actually how the majority of MTUs in highsec are lost, the mission runner simply forgets to go back for it before completing the mission, and then doesn’t know how/can’t be bothered to scan it down to retrieve it afterwards. To answer beanbro’s question, MTUs are freely attackable by anyone at any time, you only gain a suspect timer for shooting MTUs. This is another frequently asked question, that you will find in the new MTU FAQ page.


EVE Mail

I’ve had this happen to myself before, you probe down a few MTUs and bookmark them before heading out to do some real life activities, and by the time you return, another hunter has found your targets and wiped them out. Oh well, there’s plenty more MTUs in the vast ocean of space. Shaela did indeed join my chat channel afterwards, which goes by the name “MTU Hunting” in case you were interested.


EVE Mail

I occasionally receive mails from other MTU Hunters out there, including ones with vastly more experience than myself; Ganolen is one such hunter. Back when I received this mail, Ganolen had just over 1000 MTU kills, and it was partly due to wanting to catch-up that drove me to work harder to keep on wiping MTUs from the face of the galaxy.

Catching-up is still something of a pipe-dream, however, as Ganolen is still hunting MTUs to this day, and at the time of writing this post, has an incredible 1700 MTU kills. This is personally the highest MTU kill count I’ve ever seen, if you’ve seen higher than this, please share it with me.


If you have any questions or comments you would like to send me via EVEmail, please do so. I try to respond to every mail as time permits, and there’s a good chance your mail will be featured in a future episode of MTU Mailbag.
