Another Loss, Another Entry... Yarr....

After an uneventful tour through null sec i decided to jump to Ami for some low sec pirating. Its such a bother, pause the skill, leave the ship, click jump... After waking up in Ami, start the skill again, board ship, undock.

I was greeted with a few reds in local. Ami seems busy today. Unfortunately all i have in here was a shuttle so i quickly headed for Daran to get my trusty old Maller. Daran's empty, which is a bit disappointing, the party's in Ami it seems. Changed ships and suddenly someone popped into local. lil Zyphad was his name. Great! I hope he'll go ratting.

I undocked and did a 360 degree scan. I pinpointed his location quite easily and already i was wondering whether its a trap. There are a few reds and CVA guys just one jump away. CVA hate my corp Core impulse. Simply because we are more good looking than them.

So back to the story, and yes, we are sexy too! I decided to warp in and hope to kill him quickly before his friends can get to me. He was flying a Vexor.

When i came out of warp i landed just 2km off of him. Perfect. Here we go...
Target.
Point.
Neut.
Shoot.
Orbit.
What did i miss? Oh yeah, overheat weapons.. My shields melted quickly but so did his and he entered armor first. At that point i noticed i was no longer doing much damage. shit! 1600mm plates im sure! A few more seconds (or minutes) and i completely stopped doing damage. Curse the Gods i overheated my weapons till they broke! about this time i noticed 4 people enter local. i know im screwed.

lil zyphad was in 25% armor and i know his friends are in warp to us now. Fuck the pressure was so intense i cant think staight. I noticed my neut was still working and my only hope now was to drain his cap and warp off. I pointed to a planet and clicked warp. Surprisingly my ship was trying to initiate warp so his cap must be dry now; but i forgot to turn off my afterburner and the few seconds it added to my align time was costly. I turned it off as quick as i can but a thorax already popped into view and started to target me. I really really thought i can get out, it was so close but just not enough. Thorax managed to get a point. Lost my hope for the second time.

What to do now i was thinking? Im taking damage from the thorax and lil zyphad's hammerhead IIs but still they didnt manage to break my tank. I still have about 60% armor left which is pretty good. But with no guns to use, fuck it seems all i can do is wait for them to pop me. I tried to repair my guns with nanite repair paste but i know full well they're already offline. Then it struck me, some may still be online, all i need is to ungroup them. I hit ungroup... Nothing happend.. Shit need to unload the crystals first then ungroup and sure enough 3 of my lasers are still online. I put the crystals back in quickly and started to shoot the vexor again hoping to take him out with me. I got a few volley's in and my armor is holding up well. Already im adoring myself for being so goodlooking and sexy when a megathron and hurricane entered the fight!

Now im really dead! my armor melted quickly. the end is near... i began to spam warp as i entered structure. my maller's explosion followed shortly.

My Maller

PS: Core Impulse is recruiting. It's an awesome corp with awesome people.

Betrayal at the Roids...

Ive been wanting to write about my kills but there's more drama and suspense in my recent loss so i think ill share this with you guys first.

It was early morning and i logged in to find my home system full of people. Lex Fasces and Maekar Targaryen are online; i know they're looking for a fight, i also know they fly a harby and an ishkur. My friend Pahra is also online and a lot of new faces in local. I talked to Raven Khk and asked if he wants to join us. Ive seen him and talked to him in the system plenty of times and thought he can be trusted. Man, i was wrong! He said he's doing a plex but can come and help us once i got a point on Lex or Maekar.

I asked Pahra whether he's willing to use his Rokh in this fight and he agreed. So i changed fitting quickly to suit the situation and undocked in my omen navy issue. Once outside, i did a 360 scan, there's a lot of ships in the result but i know who im looking for. I warped to a planet close to the belt they are in and got in position. By this time another friend Cael Ironstaff logged in and i invited him to our fleet. He flies an arazu. I found the belt Lex and Maekar are in and asked my fleet to get ready, they responded and i was off. I landed on top of our targets and they got a point and web on me almost immediately. I told my fleet to warp to me and the fight was on. My shield was going down fast, too fast. My armor was down to about 50% when i saw another one of their ally, cariusdius, enter the system. Damn, it seems they baited us and we took it. My armor is steadily dropping and already i know my friends wouldn't be able to get to me in time. I overloaded all my modules; weapons, repper and resists hoping to stay in the fight for as long as i can. Finally my friends arrived at the scene, Pahra in his Rokh, Cael in Arazu, and Raven in his Cerb. I felt a sigh of relief; even if i lose my ship, im sure they can pop both of these guys.

But suddenly Raven left our fleet and started shooting Pahra. Traitor! I know we were screwed. My hull stopped taking damage for a few seconds at 47% and i know Cael in his Arazu jammed someone; it didnt last long though and eventually my Omen Navy popped. I warped off and came back at 100km only to see cariusdius in his Retribution enter the fight.

It was hopeless, Pahra and Cael are fighting against overwhelming odds, but i dont want to abandon my friends.. I asked them if they can hold on for a bit longer while i get a new ship.. There was no reply. I asked again and waited. Still none. I arrived at the station and quickly got my BS and undocked.. Damn the black screen is taking so long.. When i was finally outside i hit warp quickly. I got global aggro and was already taking heavy fire from the sentry when Pahra said the fight was over. His rokh was down. Cael managed to warp off.

We've suffered terrible a loss, and i feel im partly to blame because of my bad judgement. But hats off to Pahra and Cael, they fought bravely. It was great flying with you guys. =)
