Things people fit on their ships

A few days ago, I was reveling in the majestic beauty of my newly refit Hurricane. I had replaced its old rusted TI guns with a full set of TII 220mm Vulcans, and modified the rest of the layout as well, transforming the normally rather lethal 'cane' into a true monster. Deciding that the rest of my hangar shouldn't be left out, I went on a shopping spree that resulted in several new additions to my hangar, including a Rupture and a Dramiel.

As it so happened, I was not the only person in my corp to be doing that exact thing. Rac, one of my corpmates, had flown to Jita earlier that day to buy himself a Phantasm class cruiser. After facing my Rupture , he decided to hit the belts and see if he could find something to kill.

While he was doing just that, I decided to wander through the region a bit, in a way showing off my shiny new ship. It didn't take long for Rac's voice to come over the comms though, stating that he'd found an easy target.
Being someone that's always happy for an easy kill, I changed course immediately.

Upon arriving at the belt, I noticed that Rac was all alone, with the target nowhere in sight. This soon became clarified though, when a rather large amount of smack started pouring in through local.
In short, he said that he'd chased off a battleship earlier on with his Punisher, but wasn't about to take on a faction cruiser.

We decided to play around a bit while waiting for him to show up again, resulting in me testing Rac's tank and vice versa.

After a while however, I noticed that our friendly neighborhood smacktalker still had a second can in the belt.
Deciding not to waste any time, I burned towards the can and within moments, the contents had been transferred to my hold.

Much to my amazement, the guy warped in not half a minute later and instantly engaged my Hurricane in his punisher.

After the initial shock wore off, I quickly locked him and threw my entire arsenal on the little frigate, which was scrammed, double webbed, neuted, droneraped and shot to bits in short order.

After stating my disbelief in local, about why he would want to engage a Hurricane when he wouldn't want to fight a Phantasm, he simply told us that he thought the Hurricane was a cruiser class ship.
This of course was followed by a collective facepalm in the system, and I told him to learn his shiptypes and visit the eye surgeon before ever fighting PvP again.

It wasn't until I had posted the mail on Battleclinic that I realised the true hilarity of the kill.
Apparently, a he had found it wise to put a Centii C-Type Adaptive Nano Plating on his Punisher.

It didn't drop though, sadly enough, though the kill alone more than made my day, and served as a rather fitting baptism for my Hurricane.

Hahaha gotta say my eyebrows shot up about a mile when you said he engaged in a punisher, and they flew right off my head when you mentioned the Centii C-Type Adaptive Nano Plating XD

Very nicely written, and gratz on the funny kill!

Anonymous on :

Don't underestimate a Punisher. Killed enough buffer-BC's in a bleeder setup myself. A cane thoug -nearly ALWAYS having neuts- is a no go

Arden on :

Sorry, but could you write that in english please?

Blacknova on :

Very nice, very nice indeed. Yay for faction fitted PvP Punishers? Whilst the Punisher can be a tough little ship, you do need to be careful what you engage. As seen here, Hurricane = no. Nicely done!

Selexim on :

Haha I didnt know that snipersmate did this kinda stuff. good on ya both.

Brian on :

haha great stuff, EVE Online needs more people that are willing to fight against the odds.

EVE ISK Making

ISK Eve Online on :

I agree with you brian since you never got anything you didnt earn right :-P

impli on :

ROFL .. OK this puni was well fitted ...
But small tip too the huri guy ..

425's tec II's are a better choise to the hurry. try it .. you will see..

the puni guy .. best tip for u !!!


Arden on :

Hehe, thanks for the advice.
I'm using 220's because they have better tracking, and given my usual 'prey', it's the better choice.
I am planning to use 425's on my Loki though.

impli on :

Hi again

220's have better tracking yes .. but the damage output is smaller .. and 1on1 on a BC you don't need so much tracking.

And please .. the puni doesn't need any tracking .. 5x TII helper's will clear it. scram and web it down.. the rest will solve the 5x TII helper :-)

4m Skillies in drones.. ;-) But who is so idioty and fit a centri-c on a puni ..

Loki is a real cool choice. With the Loki Electronics - Immobility Drivers
and Loki Offensive - Turret Concurrence Registry . Its a real strong enemy..
With artillery and the 30% per skill level webbi range .. U scram and web it at 22 klicks ... and nothing he can do agains it :-) but the 425s on loki in closed combat is also a cool choice ..
