    Is this thread still going on?

    Further research by CCP shows “quite inflated” discrepancies between EVE-Kill’s now-updated entry of the kill and the actual server data. CCP Senior Public Relations Specialist Ned Coker told PC Gamer the website’s kill notification could’ve mishandled the data fed by EVE Online’s API verification and substituted priceless blueprint originals contained within the cargo instead of cheap copies.

    Alternatively, Coker suggested an inaccurate manual posting at the time of the kill would skew numbers upwards, saying, “While still a quite notable kill of an unfit frigate full of blueprint copies and originals, it’s safe to say it’s actually a exponentially less impactful loss, and that other killboard estimates of the same kill nearer the 5-10 billion ISK range are closer to the actual value in our databases depending on the market.” EVE-Kill’s updated estimate places total ISK loss at a more probable—yet still impressive—5.3 billion, or $173.

    Has anybody considered that this guy was in the station and had robed the corporate hanger and had his buddies waiting outside so he could get blown up so they could salvage all this stuff?

    Just saying the kill sounds way to perfect.
