X-FEANOR is quickly becoming the most famous freighter pilot in highsec. He's certainly the most watchlisted. According to his zKillboard stats, X-FEANOR has lost 148 billion isk in the last year. Astonishingly, that figure comes from only 29 losses, giving X-FEANOR a 5 billion isk average loss. No wonder he's attracted so much attention.
X-FEANOR first appeared on our radar with his extravagant pod losses, such as this one, which was worth around 10 billion isk at the time.
In the past month, he has only gotten worse. On August 23rd, he lost a 14.75 billion isk freighter. Then, on September 5th, he lost two freighters worth 12 billion isk each. A week later, he lost a 7.5 billion isk freighter and a 5.2 billion isk pod. Why he feels the need for 5 billion isk worth of implants to AFK autopilot in a freighter, one can only guess.
However, Agent Aaaarrgg was not satisfied with guessing. He wanted answers from the bot-aspirant himself. Eventually, Aaaarrgg was able to get into contact with X-FEANOR through the Anti-Ganking channel, where Ilia Kovalchuk--believed to be X-FEANOR's main--frequently resides.
The first question was an obvious one. It's a question any economically rational person would want to ask:
...Namely, why not buy a permit with the cost of 10 million isk per year, rather than losing 148 billion isk per year?
X-FEANOR revealed that he is in possession of 200 billion isk. Even if true, he has lost a decent percentage of his wealth through ganks.
(Russian greatness is a surprisingly common consolation for carebears who suffer big losses.)
But if X-FEANOR wasn't willing to obey the Code for economic reasons, he should at least do it for my sake, for the sake of the Saviour of Highsec. Right?
X-FEANOR wouldn't listen. For some reason he's not a big fan of mine.
On September 20th, X-FEANOR was back to his old tricks...
In a single day, he suffered three multi-billion isk losses. After the first freighter loss, he sent this explanation to our Agent:
X-FEANOR spends lots of money on PLEX for isk. He uses the isk to buy expensive freighters and implants... to try to accumulate more isk. When he fails, he buys more isk with PLEX.
So if you ever wonder what was X-FEANOR thinking, I guess you have your answer.
