War Declaration ProfessionPosted: 2013-02-14
Our Highsec industrial operation had a minor setback last week as we logged on after a few days out of game to discover an active and then closed war declaration.
We had a Highsec POS setup a few jumps out from Jita and it looks like we were targeted by a group of people looking to clear our tower. It seems that there is a profession out there where you hop corporations clearing POSes from Highsec.
After researching their activity on Eve Who, Eve-Kill, and strike pattern on Dotlan, I haven’t found any reason that we were specifically targeted besides our proximity to Jita. I’ve also been unable to link a sale of a open Highsec moon on the forums to them.
Always remember to write off the cost of a POS as soon as you purchase it. Assume you will not be recovering it as random acts like this can happen at any time.
Nothing of value besides the POS and modules was lost as all BPOs were kept in the Corporation office in a station and researched remotely.
