Overview, Goals and Objectives:

  • I’ve been making almost daily trips to Resbroko to check out the Amarr Novice Outpost and again it had been a few days since I’d last gotten any luck finding someone.
  • On this particular trip there was only a few in local, less than 10 so my hopes were not high but I went and took a look anyway.
  • After entering the system I warped to within 100km of the Outpost and shortened the range on my D-scan.
  • There was a Rifter on short range D!
  • I didn’t waste anytime, warped off to a close safe, set up a few modules, checked D-scan again, then warped back to the Outpost at 0 and activated the gate immediately once coming out of warp.

Analysis of outcomes:

  • Rootufi Aldent was in the Outpost in the Rifter maybe 12 to 15km away from my entry point.
  • The heart was pumping, I was a little excited, and I totally gaped on activating my prop mod but did start my approach and got him targeted.
  • I didn’t want to take a Security Status hit so hoped that he would engage first and he did oblige.
  • As soon as he shot I activated everything – Warp Scram, Stasis Webifier, AutoCannons, Rocket Launcher – and made sure I had a tight orbit.
  • Rootufi got me into armour but with the help of the repper my Rifter was able to tank his DPS and after I overheated my AutoCannons and Rocket Launcher his Rifter went down in short order.
  • He wasn’t quick enough with his GTFO and I managed to target, web, scram and pop his pod as well.

Conclusion/Summary and Post Action Thoughts:

  • After I looted his wreck I warped off to my perch repped up my armor and let my shields recharge.
  • I waited around for a few minutes to see if I’d get any more action but there was no joy.
  • Missing the activation of my propmod likely cost me with me taking some extra damage but in the end it didn’t matter that much – I didn’t lose my Rifter so it was a good engagement.
  • Recorded the engagement with ShadowPlay and put together a video, albeit a rather amateurishly edited video but with it being my first real attempt I don’t think it’s too terrible?

 

Again… Thanks for the fun Resbroko pilots – and I will see you again soon!

It’s getting close, I can almost feel the trigger of the Interdiction Sphere Launcher on my finger tip – I’ve already purchased a few Sabre hulls and the modules to fit them out now I just need to wait out a few weeks of focused training and I’ll be able to actually pilot one – in the meantime I’ll be watching “The Interdictor: A Seminar by Wulfrunner

I enjoy watching EVE videos, whether they be PvP videos or instructional videos for PI, exploration, etc…the Rooks and Kings series are pretty impressive! I’ve got an Alienware PC and with it have access to NVIDIA GeForce ShadowPlay and have been thinking of dabbling with making some videos.

With that being said – I have little to no video editing experience and am not sure I’ll ever do anything so exciting that it’ll make any waves in the inundated selection of EVE Online videos but I’ll likely have some fun with it and maybe learn a thing or two along the way.

We’ll see how things go over the next week or so and I’ll see if I can patch something together that isn’t too terrible?
