There's always fun to be had

There's not much to do when you're new. A week old isn't enough time to be able to protect yourself properly, let alone pirate solo. Finding ways to amuse yourself while training has to be top priority. I guess thats probably why can flipping is as rampant as it is. Its something to do, thats relatively safe, and can provide hours of entertainment if you run across a smacktalking loudmouth. This isn't one of those times, but it provided enough entertainment for me to tell its tale here.

The day started out like any other. Check on my training, plan out my skills for the day, check the ammo amount in my hold to make sure it was sufficient, and procede to undock. Isaziwa. According to eve 2d maps, it's a trading center for part of The Citadel. I guess thats true. The population is pretty low, but at least it's pretty consistent. With a (somewhat) dead end low-sec two jumps over, plenty of belts, and a smattering of Lai Dai and Caldari Navy agents, it seems to be an ok place to make my start.

My Incursus clears the station and I hit the warp engines. First stop is my scanning spot. I drift slowly out of warp and come to a stop. The scan readout doesn't reveal anyone I know for sure is jet canning, nor any cans named with a time code. Discouraged, I decide to just browse the belts and see what I can find.

The first belt has a couple rats, a couple lootable wrecks, and a couple cargo containers. I decide to kill the rats and take a peek into those cargo containers. Both rats pop with barely two cycles of my guns. Briefly I wish high-sec rats were at least thicker skinned, might make ratting more fun at least. Putting that from my mind I head for the cans. A peek inside reveals just some standard rat loot. Nothing even worth remembering. I take it anyway, hoping that maybe the person who's loot it is will still be in system, and maybe a chase will ensue. Only thing left to do now is check out those two lootable wrecks. I fly over to the first one and take a look inside. Just a railgun and I take it.

As I'm flying to the second wreck, someone jumps into the belt. I do a quick info on him and see that he's a two week old pilot flying an Imicus. He isn't the owner of the loot so I really don't give him much thought until he starts heading for the same wreck I am. I get there and wait, just to see what he's going to do. He decides to loot the wreck without even a pause for a second thought. Perfect.

Now at this point I still don't have kill rights on this guy, but I'm guessing I'll be able to soon. I watch the direction he warps out to and jump into warp right behind him. I come out of warp and see that he's already engaged 3 rats in the belt. I target the second closest and pop it while he's still taking out the first one. I wait a couple thousand meters off my kill as he drops the third and starts his looting. He goes for it. I see him start flashing red and get my lock going. He starts to warp out just before I get my scram on him. Damn!

I kept my wits about me long enough to take notice of which way he was heading. He's either going from belt to belt, right down the list, or he went to a station. I pray he went to the next belt as I jump into warp. Anticipation builds as I near the end of the tunnel. YES! He's here. I lock him and scram, followed closely by my autocannons coughing to life. I start my orbit and hit the afterburner. Halfway through his shields I see he starts shield repping. "That won't save you" I think, as remember that I have a drone itching to get some action as well. With the combined firepower, I get through his shields and my fusion rounds start chewing away rapidly at his armor. Finally he deploys his two drones and I start taking some significan hits on my shield. I laugh, wondering what he'll think when he gets to my plated armor.

He never gets the chance as my guns eat through his hull and it explodes with a bright flash.

I'm not sure what my A/S/L has to do with him getting killed. I think this conversation would have been a lot more heated with a lot more smack had there not been the obvious language barrier. I tried looking up "ДОЛБОЕБ", but I'm guessing it might be slang or something, since translation sites didn't really know what to do with it. Not sure what "pizdets" means eitherIf you know, please tell me, as I'd love to find out. Either way, I jotted his name down for the future when I'm wardecking corps.

Yes, it's tough to get a good fight going when you're new, but if you look around enough, there's always fun to be had.

This is my first story, so go easy on me. Drop me a line in game as well, I'd like to hear what you think.
