Learned the hard way that an overtuned Valhalla isn't easy to dock IS and don't slow down as quickly as I thought it would.

Another was playing without lights on in my pc room, uintentionally ejected and the friendly #deca following my ship splattered me on its front.

Gave the autopilot the order to dock at a shipyard, becaus my ship was damaged. Becaus of the damag the ship was so slow that I dicided to get a coffee. I went to the kitchen and cooked a coffee. When I returned I saw the start screen. Rolling Eyes

Don't know if it can be considered "dumb", but it was certainly embarrassing.

I was in my Mobile Mining Base-Ship (don't remember why), and I jumped into another system. I got basically glued to a Condor that was going through the gate.

For a minute, I thought I might actually be able to break free of the traffic jam, as neither of us was moving and my shields weren't going down. But every time I tried to maneuver, I heard a clunk and took a shield hit. Two hits, my shields were dead, and then my hull began to disintegrate.

The very first time a ship bailed for me in my first game of X3R, I went out in my spacesuit to claim it -- and ran right into it and died.

I'd like to amend my entry since I think I just had the dumbest death yet.

I'd spent two hours blasting Xenon in Core 23 and was happily picking up some leftover missiles...when it occured I should really take care of the shipyard so it'd stop spawning fighters (why it didn't launch any of the four Qs docked I'll never know).

Anyway, I jumped my Hades in at the North gate and proceeded to make my way over there to launch the missile barrages myself....

First up I managed to destroy my Hyperion cause it was right in front of me...that alone would have forced a re-load.

Then a single N spawned pretty much on top of me...as I was firing Tomahawks.

BANG!

I need to amend mine too, I was undocking from a station and turned SETA on by accident, and then this Mercury Tanker TL docks, I was in its parking spot.

Overestimating the ability of the Kestrel to slow down enough to get around the roid as it makes a turn? Even using opposing strafing. (Turn to the right, use the D strafing to shorten the turn.)

Powersliding my Pirate Kestrel into a friendly Dragon? That one was particularly ugly.

Not my dumbest death but my most hurtful one :

I was in a kestrel, entering Asteroid Belt from the portal and my autopilot was sending me to Mars or somewhere around that and BAM ! Game over without knowing.

Slightly after that, I remarked there was a AntiMatter mine dropped around the gate because my kestrel was blown again as I was in another ship.

I never saw the mine and I had to reload 5 times because of it.

Not my death but the loss of a destroyer after 20 seconds. I bought an Akuma from the Yaki shipyard (and they are extremely pricey) and told it to dock with my HQ in Savage Spur. I then set the autopilot on my Vidar to take me to Avarice.

The Akuma's autopilot decided the right way to go is through my Vidar. Of course it only had 200Mj worth of shielding. Suddenly I get a jolt and turn around to see my brand new Akuma blowing up. 100m credits gone in a moment.

For me it was probably with the Aran; it was taking so long to dock at a shipyard when I found it (going at 6m/s), so I decided to pilot it myself. Got in it, spent ages turning it to strafe my way to the shipyard...

Then, I hit the docking computer when I came within range. Made some repairs, did all that jazz, and then undocked. Laughing Whoever has the Aran will know what happens as a result of doing that Evil or Very Mad .

What's funny is that I didn't think of docking another ship and transporting over to it, leaving the sector and then telling the Aran to undock... I actually reloaded and restarted from scratch the whole Aran boarding op (previous save)... That's what happens when your brains are fried Very Happy

Hang on a second. How did you put weapons on your space suit?

He must have boarded it himself Chuck Norris style and hacked the core before setting its self destruct..

Autopilot through a gate and when I exit my ship goes vertical and rams into the gate.

Perhaps he got other xenon ships to shoot the K?

For me there are so many, but probably the worst was flying in an M8 bomber, unloading its boom powder at a distant station, got impatient at how slow the missiles move, and hopped into a Springblossom, zoomed ahead and started pounding the station myself. I also managed to pound myself in the rear with the wall of Tomahawks I had launched before.
Talk about fire and forget... Laughing
