Was out wandering Low-Sec the other night when I get a notification that a RL mate has logged in, his EVE in game name is Melrick Aubaris. He’s not got that much time to play and is in Hek so I start making my way that direction thinking we may be able to find some trouble to get in to and when I’m about two jumps out Melrick notices that a newer fella, Andrey Dubina, has just gotten a Suspect Flag which gave us 15 minutes to hunt him down and attack without any CONCORD penalty.

As soon as I hit Hek I reshipped into Naglfar – RAGE™ and started hitting the belts, went with the assumption that Andrey was probably looting wrecks, and it paid off – I found him, flying a Talwar, in Hek IX – Asteroid Belt 4.  Unfortunately I had warped in at Ø and got decloaked by an asteroid so he warped off right away but he had been about 200km off the belt so curious I took a look at what was out there and lo and behold there was a can so I warped out to it and took a quick peak inside, it was full of loot. Now this brightens things up, I cloaked up and reposition about 15km above the can and wait. While I’m waiting Melrick has fitted a long point on his Vexor, undocked and gotten himself to a Safe Spot in anticipation of Andrey coming back to get his loot.

We didn’t wait too long… Mr.Dubina warped right back to his can and started orbiting it so I started my approach and once within 5km had Melrick warp to me at Ø. When Melrick came in he decloaked me, got point and unleashed his drones while I hit Andrey’s Talwar with my ECM and started firing missiles at it. The ambush must have shook up the poor fella and/or the ECM worked well because he didn’t even Yellow Box either of us? Andrey’s Talwar went down fast and then we popped his Pod for good measure.

He apparently was not too pleased with us and shortly after our ambush placed bounties on both Melrick and me – we’re now ‘Wanted’ – it was a quick bit of fun to end the night!

I was out wandering yesterday afternoon looking to find some CONCORD action in Naglfar – RAGE™ and my route had me jumping through Jita. I jumped into Perimeter, one system before Jita, and held cloak while I checked local. It was busy but I didn’t see anyone flashing with a Criminal or Suspect Flag and there was only one war target in system, Althur Kruw, so I hit the warp to zero towards the Jita Gate and hit my cloak on the way in. As I came out of warp I could see the Gate was busy but didn’t really think anything of it. As I neared the Gate I started de-cloaking and then I started spamming the jump button and then this appeared…

 

“Officials have closed the starGates to Jita due to heavy congestion. Travelers are advised to seek alternate routes.”

 

This was not something I had seen before and it took me a few seconds to be fully cognizant of what it meant. Unfortunately by the time I read the message and started to look for a spot to warp away to Mr.Kruw had me locked up and pointed.

My initial reaction was to run away so I aligned and overheated my prop mod but I was running with an Afterburner and it just wasn’t enough speed to get me out of range so I targeted him back and aggressed but it was too late. I had waited too long and I got popped – Hound (Stealth Bomber) & Capsule – Genolution ‘Auroral’ 197-variant.

In hindsight with the fit I was flying my initial reaction of ‘Run!’ was misguided, what I should have done was aggressed right away. If I had both the ECM – Ion Field Projector II on him I likely could have disrupted his targeting and escaped.

Yet again… “This is EVE ~ Shipwrecks happen!

Spent last night hanging with some mates helping the Police respond to criminal activity in Hek and it was a busy night for CONCORD. We had scads of fun joining in on CONCORD’s destruction of some High-Sec parasites.

The CODE. bunch don’t seem to get our motives they think we’re trying to save everyone but that’s not the case – we don’t particularly care who they kill, those parasites are content for us – but when it happens we sure do enjoy the Anti-Gank. I did manage to help CONCORD destroy a few criminals last night; Catalyst, Catalyst and a Moa but I’m not sure if we saved any miners?

Now while CONCORD does not punish pilots with a Suspect Flag they also do not interfere with pilots who do punish those with a Suspect Flag and poor Jinn Khaleesi was out looting wrecks in Hek last night and got our attention a few times… Vexor, Capsule, Probe, Capsule.

 

I had a fun night with the mates!

This fit was recommended to me by an EVE mate that my brother introduced me to, Rapkin. It’s used as an Anti-Ganking platform and to sneak on to some CONCORD kills. “RAGE™” stands for “Rapkin Anti Gank Emitter™”
