The Thorax was lost. Then the capsule. Turns out both were naked as the day they rolled out of their Gallente factories. Surprising to say the least, especially in lowsec.
The pilot of the Thorax, did not take the loss very well. He messaged Vana theHunter, one of the perpetrators of the attack.
From: CelimbrimborIt's not strange to see angry evemails after losses, but a 15M ISK loss? A bit of an overreaction, by my reckoning. This guy is looking to a terribly frustrating time in EVE if he's already getting hysterical over little losses. He needed some advice and perspective. I convo'd him, but he'd already rage logged. I sent him an evemail instead.

You wanker! seriously, you attack an unarmed thorax for what? I am trying to get across to my homeworld and you decide what to just shoot anything that moves. So much for good will and all that shit. I just bought that thorax for 15mil ISK and just started playing the game. Fuck you!
From: Poetic StanzielHopefully this guy does stick with the game. Hopefully he does gain a little perspective on his loss. So far, no response. He may still be angry.

You're flying a combat ship. It should be assumed by anyone that it is armed. Most people will lock up a ship immediately, without zooming in on your bracket to see if it's equipped with weapons.
You chose to fly it in lowsec, unarmed. The error lies with you.
Now you can pout and cry that you lost a ship. Stamp your feet and return to Lord of the Rings Online (your name gives it away), or you can man up and admit you made the error.
If you want to learn PvP, get with a good PvP corp. Fweddit, for example.
I hope you stick with EVE Online. It is a rewarding game. But you need an attitude adjustment, or you're going to be angry all the time.
