Gank gone wrong...

this evening started out like any other. we are at war with another corporation but they havnt been around to fight, so i decided it was a nice time to learn how to probe out ships. i started in otou, my new old stomping ground. its one of my favourites because of the arrangement of belts makes it pretty easy to find people on the directional scanner. so i start probing and after about 20 minutes of that and no positive results, i decided to give up and try my luck on some targets i saw on directional scanner. i dock up and grab my trusty arbitrator all t2 fitted with my array of drones. this may not seem like much to you, but with only 4.5mil sp, i think im doing pretty good to have a -10 sec status mainly from the use of my arby.

i head out to my scan spot to start looking through the belts. i can see them on 360 but cannot seem to find anything on 5. so i decide to sit in a belt and wait. nothing comes. i grow bored and tired and make one last attempt at 5 degree scans and i get a hit, a punisher on planet 6! this is too good to pass up and will be easy for me to pop if i can get a lock on him before he bolts. i warp into to planet 6 area at 0 and viola, there he is and ready to fight.
the punisher locks me first and engages. this is important as you will see later, i did not get a gcc from this. i make short work of the punisher with my warrior ii drones and medium neut but as im fighting him a thorax warps in on me as well. i finish off the punisher and start into the thorax. at first hes doing a good amount of damage to me and gets me down into armor, but i turn the tables on him finally with my tracking disruptor and neuts. too bad for him, he didnt bring combat drones. then i see... what is this? another punisher warps in on me and starts firing. i take my drones off the thorax and call for help over vent, then put warrior ii's back out and onto the punisher. it drops like a rock, but my comms tell me that i have no support coming, right as another arbitrator warps in on me. he drops out some infiltrator i's and lays into me with a td for some reason. i pull in the warriors and drop out the hammerhead ii's again and finish off the thorax. ive been repping hard this whole time and running only 1 medium neut to preserve cap. im down to only 1 booster 800 in my cargo after starting out with 10 and 1 in the chamber. i hear over comms that help is almost here and i feel that a sigh of relief is soon to come. the arbitrator did not stand up to the t2 drones well and it went down, but i missed out on pod kills so im a little disappointed.

i warped back to my scan spot, still with no gcc and sitting in half structure. i do, however, have full armor and am gaining my shields back. i post the killmails to the board and then head back to pick up my loot. what is this?! a geddon is sitting there waiting for me and my reinforcements had arrived and have a point on it. i dock up at the station and pick up some more booster 800's, but i have to go into this battle at roughly 30% structure with full armor and only a little shields due to no repair station in this system and not enough time to go to another system. the battle that ensued was epic and lead to many ship losses for games of divinity, yet no losses for the space p0lice.

Arden on :

awesome ^^
it's always sooo much fun to show that bigger ships or more ships don't always mean an assured victory
nice one

StovAkor on :

3 cheers for the underdog Arb. I could never do a damn thing in that ship....cept die. But then again I never trained up my drone skills very much. :-P
