I log in just after downtime and start searching local for possible targets. I canâ€™t leave without poping at least 1 ship/day anymore. It became like narcotics, Iâ€™m addicted to pvp. Of course no targets after downtime, so I go to a dead-end system to rat a little. As I enter the system I notice no one being there, so I get to the belt to do the job. After 5 minutes, I see a neutral appearing in local, I scan the system few times, but no one appears on scan, hmm, docked I think. I go to the next belt, what do I see, 3 cruiser rats, nice I say, donâ€™t want to waste ammo on those, so I put my valkyries 2â€™s on them and approach the first rat, to loot the wreck after it will pop (yeah, I am greedy ). My drones destroy the first rat, I sendâ€™em to the second (those little things just love to split and attack different targets), looting the wreck meanwhile. When the second rat pops, an arazu decloaks 30-40 km from me (the guy that appeared in local), locks me, dampens me and starts shooting at me, the rat is 20 km away, shooting me too, I recall my drones, as I notice them to get damage and burn my way to the rat. Meanwhile, I lock the arazu pilotâ€™s drones and start killing them, after killing his drones, I am still in 50% armor, but It melts not so fast now. I get to 16 km away from the rat (still not being able to lock it), out of cap, hitting structure now. When I get in 5% structure, he stops shooting and convoâ€™s me:

[ 2008.04.05 14:57:52 ] Lady Destruction > i told u
The guy actually gives me my 5 mil back, after talking to him in local, and after we get a gang in the system, trying to find him. After a little more talk, he said he just tried to be a pirate, but he understood itâ€™s not for him, so now he joined our anti-pirate corporation .
I log in and see a lot of neutrals in the system, none of them flashy. I do the check info on all locals, as usual, to be sure that there is no blob in the system. I find few guys from one corp, and a lot of guys alone in local. Itâ€™s risky to search for â€œwanna be piesâ€ now, but Iâ€™ll give it a try, I said to myself. So I undock, activate my DC II, scan from the station and expand my â€œdrones in spaceâ€ tab of the drones window (these are the things I do every time I undock, itâ€™s in my blood already, I need to be ready for everything). The scan shows a list of ships, all of them known to be there for few weeks now, all of them at POSâ€™s. So I do what I do all the time, I warp to planet 3 - I can scan planet 1, planet 2+belts and planet4 +belts from here. I see a thorax on the scanner. I locate him being in a belt, just warped there though, so I warp to him. If heâ€™s a pirate in his soul, heâ€™ll engage me now, I tell myself. As I get out of warp, he locks me, I lock him and we start the battle, pretty straightforward: we both fly to each other, while our drones shoot at their target. Web, scram, f1-f5, he does the same, we start dropping almost the same amount of armor now, so I decide it is the time for my little surprise-overload high rack . His armor starts melting surprisingly fast and he pops eventually. Nothing impressive, but still a good fight:
After several minutes of not finding anything to kill, I notice a red entering the system and docking, I was docked too. I refitted my ship especially for station camping and got out of station, waiting outside. After 2-3 minutes of waiting, the red guy undocks in a manticore, all flashy, coz of his -9 sec status . I lock him, scram and web, put the guns and drones on him as fast as I can, and BOOM he goes! I lock the pod: scram, web, guns and BOOM again, bounty transferred, another nice entry to my bio .
Then follows 4 day of RL work and no EVE .
I scan a rupture, go to it, and kill it, I like ruptures . Then I talk to the guy in local, he is nice, he was in the system for few days now, he even read my stories (o/ mate if u read this 1 too ), but unfortunately he is red to me. He tried to avoid me several times, but I got him this time . After that, I try to settle a 1vs1 on frigs with him. He agrees and while I switch to my incursus, a mate in a caracal is engaged by his rifter, the caracal is slowly dying, calling for help, I undock and warp to him as soon as possible, kill the rifter, but my mate getâ€™s killed by a rat too, good job on that one, I love rifters btw. Then he gets another rifter, and we go to duel at a planet, but a mate in a rapier uncloaks there and locks the rifter, not shooting though, just watching, I kill the rifter, but he didnâ€™t even shoot me :(, afraid of rapier. Then he gets another rifter, fits it with artillery and comes to duel me again, boom goes the rifter again, a rupture and 3 rifters lost, sorry mate. Come with tech 2 acâ€™s next time .
Later same day, I scan 2 frigs in a belt, a rifter and an incursus, I warp to them and they engage me! They pop very fast of course (small guns thorax is no joke for a frig), sadly. Props to them for engaging though, they had big balls and they were very polite too, although noobs, they have a big future I guess.
We prepare a gang to destroy a camp, and I warp to a planet, semi-afk, talking with the guys in fleet, while they were waiting on the gate, suddenly a claw warps to me and engages me! I call for help, but when I do that, I see him approaching me, I overload my web, and when he gets within 13km I activate it and mwd to him. When I get in range, I start shooting him, but my void doesnâ€™t have good tracking so he is dropping not that fast, but still fast enough, my mates come too, but they only manage to scratch him a bit - dead claw:
Then we send our bait to the gate camp, but the campers dock and we get nothing, no more kills that day.
I wake up in the morning and log in. I find a guy that I killed before in a nearby system, but he was docked, so I ask him in local for a 1vs1 on cruisers, no answer though, he is afk I think, but he suddenly getâ€™s out of the system, so I go to find him:

Then I convo him and he agrees to fight me, so we warp to a planet and start the fight, he was smart though and kept away from my optimal most of the fight and I only overloaded my guns at the end of the fight, so I got blown:
[ 2008.04.15 07:22:01 ] Lady Destruction > gf

[ 2008.04.15 09:39:53 ] friend1> kk
[ 2008.04.15 09:39:55 ] Lady Destruction > no one at the crie gate
I go to my bookmark, 260 km from the gate, and I see a megathron there, he warps out as he sees me. They were 5 in local (the reds I mean). I intended to go back, but a mate asks me to watch the gate, coz he needs to get his caracal through it. I agree, he goes to the system and I notice a zealot on scan, I warp to the other gate, and see a rapier there on scan, I start the warp to 100km away from the camped gate and right after the warp starts, the rapier uncloaks, as I get out of warp, that rapier jumps right on me and engages, I was scared as shit then, but I thought, if I die, I can try to kill the rapier too, as it was 3km from me!
[ 2008.04.15 09:40:03 ] friend1> what are u in now?
[ 2008.04.15 09:40:26 ] friend2 > what you got on scanner?
[ 2008.04.15 09:40:33 ] Lady Destruction > rapier rengaged me
[ 2008.04.15 09:40:38 ] friend1> get out
So I lock the rapier and put a point and web on it, as well as all my drones and start to mwd towards. As I do that, the zealot warps to me too and starts shooting me as well, I was shooting the rapier with all my guns, but the guy was getting away from me slowly and died eventually, so I try to warp out, after the rapier death, but the zealot has his scram on me too, so I lock him now. After I get the lock I see that he is into structure already, so I put my web and scram on him as well as all my guns, he pops, I try to lock his pod too, flying to the wreck meantime, but he warps and I see an eos warped to me too. So I drop the wrecks and warp away, happily I managed to warp before he could lock me, but I let a domination warp disruptor there . Well at least I didnâ€™t lose my ship:
As I like to say, I helped sentryâ€™s to kill those guys .

I had a mad quantity of adrenaline running through my veins then, so I logged off to get back in feelings. This kind of fights is the reason I play this game, I just love them (when I win of course ).
Again, I log in and there is no one to shoot at. So I take my vexor and go to search some anomalies, perhaps I can get some good loot. As I get in a system, I see a lot of blues there and 2 neutrals, 1 of them docked. I scan the system and find a typhoon in a belt, so I warp to the belt at 100km, to see what is he doing there. Looks like he is ratting, he just killed the last rat, I fly towards him and keep at 40 km, when I get in that range, he locks me and mwdâ€™s towards me, 1400km/sec, faster than my vexor, OMG. I had a mate ready to help me 1 jump away, in a nighthawk. So the phoon engages me, I call my friend and start killing his drones, after being sure that he shoots all his guns at me, I release my own drones and put them on the phoon, while shooting those drones, he got slowly into range and webbed me, so I put my disruptor at him and my nos too, as my repper was sucking my cap badly, then my mate warps in and starts shooting the phoon, I let his drones in peace and concentrate all my firepower on the ship, he pops, when I get into 20% armor. All this time he never had a scram on me, I was even thinking to bail in a moment, when I wasnâ€™t sure how far my mate is, but I didnâ€™t and I am happy about it:
Then I decide that I like my thorax better for pvp and go to take it, although there was no one to shoot at again. Then I see a red in local, my mate being 2 jumps away, but the red gets out of the system fast. Few moments later, my friend tells me that the same red is in the system 2 jumps away now, I tell him to try to find the red, and go to that system myself, when I reach the gate, I ask my mate if he found the red guy, when suddenly, the gate activates and he appears in local. I warped 10 k away from the gate, hoping that something like this will happen and it happened, so he decloaks, and I see a crow . I say to myself, thereâ€™s no way in hell I could catch that crow at the gate, but give it a try anyway, thatâ€™s me, I never give up. I actually manage to get a lock on him, and put a web on him!!! He was heading back to the gate meantime, hoping to jump back I guess. So I put all my drones and guns on him and of course he pops before reaching that gate :), dead crow:
OMG LOL!!! I mean, itâ€™s not like losing a crow to a badger, but how can u lose a crow at a gate like that?!!!

Good read! It seems like Eve Online is more interesting if you at least have other people to help you. As for me I'm a noob always on solo getting popped by more experienced players. Only once was I able to pop a more skilled player (by luck of course). Just my luck that my 1st pvp kill was a stealth bomber who had just nos'd me to near death. Happy hunting!!!
