Every one has heard of Sulley, the non-existent member of Detached Navka, who recently racked up an impressive 4 trillion loot grab as a result of taking down inactive Citadels.
If you haven’t heard of the exploits, you can read about it here.
Flipping the Sulley Raid
This is an alliance sized operation as the operation will obviously draw hundreds if not thousands to the system.
- First track the recent Citadel kills of Detached Navka using ZKillboard. I’ll make it easy for ya.
Detached Navka is currently operating in Lonetrek and conducted a raid yesterday, they will be raiding today.
- Deposit an amount of cargo in all stations that you are not able to dock with, if you are still able to. If not simply add the entire Detached Navka corporation to your Contacts List and watch the system they are in light up like the eyes of a Silver Hawk.
Your cargo drop will allow you to be informed about the Sulley Raid and where it is taking place.
But Sulley is smart: Back in 2018 CCP added a feature where players could deposit cargo inside of a Citadel without actually docking at the station. Sulley didn’t have authorization to dock at any of his target Citadels, but this feature allowed him to place an item inside each one so that when the station was at risk of entering the new abandoned state, he, along with the corporation that owned it, would receive an in-game email warning him. Though that email was meant to help defenders, Sulley exploited it to learn the rough timing of when each station would become vulnerable to destruction and pillaging.
When you have determined where Sulley is raiding, get your anti-raider ships ready for the PvP fight. Their favorite ship seems to be the Ikitursa, so build your PvP around countering it. At least 20 combat ships + Cargo Hauler will be needed.
When the Citadel pops, send in the fleet and use cargo scanners on the cans, if possible, to determine the content of each can. Look for the most valuable loot in the can as well as total amount of loot in each can. The loot in each can will have to amount to the total number of combat ships in you fleet.
Bring the haulers in and then start looting with your combat ships which will make your fleet go suspect and able to be attacked. Once suspect start off loading the looted cargo to the haulers who should still be free from attack other than ganking.
From what I have been reading is that these abandoned Citadels have massive amounts of wealth stored in them, maybe from Bot Accounts long inactive or Bots that are on their ‘down cycle’ of Bot grinding.
Sorry James315, you really aren’t that fashionable any longer.
