I didn't want to interupt my "feature series" of posts but something the other day happened that was too good to pass up. First some background on the evenings events...
I had spent most of the day roaming with our friends The Python Cartel and we had a lot of fun and killed rather a lot of Hurricane class Battlecruiser boats, amongst other things. One of the pilots flying with us was a less experienced RL friend of one of their guys. Turns out he was awaiting approval for his application into Python and as I was about to leave their comms channel, he asks me if I could get him into FLA5HY RED temporarily, so he wouldn't get ganked by both corps when not fleeted with us. I told him that recruitment was firmly closed, I mean we certainly wouldn't be taking anyone in to be used as some kind of sanctuary from pirates. He makes his dissapointment known and my parting words with him are "see you on the battlefield". I had no idea how soon that was to be, nor how much fun...
After the roam Python go back to their station and we go back to ours, when we discover that the aforementioned pilot is also with us. We decide to mess with him a little bit, camping him in and entertaining some rather funny threats regarding carriers. We soon get tired of station games and we all go off and do various afk activities. Some 20 minutes later however, one of our high-sec scouts urgently reports that he is in a Rokh approaching the gate to our system. I immediately undock in my Hurricane, to discover it was my nanofit one and not my trusty gate cane. I warp to the gate and burn towards the Rokh...
The sentrys begin raping my shield buffer and the Rokh has chosen to engage whislt burning away from the gate. A few moments later, a corpie lands in an Abaddon and takes over point while I GTFO with low shields. I warp back in to see the Battleship explode, leaving the pilot apparantly rather upset. We give our customary "gf" in local but are met with some amount of hostility, which is being observed by his prospective employers over in Python. "He seemed an alright guy earlier" I thought, "whats with the sudden emo raging?" He opens a convo with me and seems a little more calm and apologetic...
Dragon Rider1 > haha i had a lil emo rage
Mr Kha > we'll let you off
Dragon Rider1 > now soon to be or not corp thinks im actin like an idiot
Dragon Rider1 > let me off?
Mr Kha > for having an emo rage
Mr Kha > no hard feelings
Dragon Rider1 > its fine i take critisism well
Dragon Rider1 > and once im not a nub anymore ill be back with another rokh yall wont fare soo well on
While this was going on however, it seemed Python had rejected his application on their forums for getting all verbal with us. He is back in high sec at this point and yet again our scout yells as he approaches our gate once again in a Blackbird. Again, he jumps and we pop him. This time he exchanges the "gf" with us, presumably in attempt to redeem himself in the eyes of the overlooking Python guys.
But it gets better, we challenge him to a fair fight: us in our noob ships vs him. He accepts and there is much excitement and comedic discussion of noobship fits and fleet bonuses. Hturt of Python Cartel wants in on the action so we throw him an invite and agree to meet him at Planet 10. I fielded a trusty Reaper with the following fit:
1x Micro Auxiliary Power Core
1x Catalyzed Cold-Gas Arcject Thrusters
2x Tech II 125m Autocannons
We land and immediately begin popping the Vexor's Warrior II drones while a few of our guys are putting dps on the Vexor. I am having a great time at this point, whizzing round with a cap-stable MWD fit noobship popping drones, pretending I'm a heroic interceptor pilot like a little kid. It soon becomes apparant the Vexor has no alternative means of offense and his tank is dropping fast. Attention is duely taken away from the drones and put on the Vexor which much to our delight explodes, causing a mass of hysteria over comms. Seconds beforehand, he successfully manages to take me down with a dying breath. Here is the video, from the perspective of fellow FLA5H pilot, Death Fangs...
Gf sir :-)
