Operation Banahǫgg Spá After Action Report
2014-12-31 | 02:49


Overview, Goals and Objectives:

  • After getting a recommendation to try a Factional Warfare System to look for 1v1 Frigate fights I did a little research and saw that Resbroko was super close to Hek and an active FW System.
  • I made the two jumps, checked out the System a bit, made a couple of book marks, one way off grid safe spot and a perch within D-scan range of a Amarr Novice Outpost. The Novice Outposts only allow T1 Frigates into them so I knew that with whatever came in I’d be on somewhat even ground.

Analysis of outcomes:

  • The system was not super busy, maybe 15-20 in local but I thought I’d give it a go anyways so I warped to the perch, narrowed down the angle on my D-Scan and took a look at the Novice Outpost. I could see two ships on D-Scan, a Condor and a Worm, neither being a great match-up for the Rifter but I was itching to lose a Frigate so I dove right in.
  • I warped to zero on the Outpost, activated the gate and once in hit orbit around the nearest structure and waited.
  • It took all of maybe 5 to 10 seconds and in came the Worm. It was the worse match-up of the two but I wasted no time… hit approach, activated and overheated my prop mod, targeted then lit up and overheated everything.
  • I figured my only chance was to close distance and get on him early but it just wasn’t enough. I think I managed to get him down to maybe 50% shield before he popped me.

Conclusion/Summary and Post Action Thoughts:

  • It was what I was looking for… to lost a Frigate and I succeeded. Not sure what I could have done to change the outcome of this particular engagement – I was in a hurry to get blown up and that’s what happened.
  • It looks like he got nutted not long after our fight which gave me a good look at his Worm fit.

  • That’s a pretty deadly fit against a Rifter. Once he had me scrammed I just couldn’t get him into my optimal range, he was just far enough away and just fast enough that his DPS was too much for me. By the time I did get close enough it was all over.


Can’t be too displeased with the outcome and now I know where to go to find some 1v1 Frigate fights so I’ll definitely be heading back there but next time maybe I’ll be a little more picky about my opponent.
