So I’m in Dodixie, and it’s about midnight, I’m about to wrap it up, but decide to sit outside M20 in my UBAR buffer cyclone I had laying around. I undock, move to the side, stop ship, pop a can with a hunk of ammo in it, and wait for a bite.
Literally 20 seconds later, a Brutix steals it, goes red to me, and sits there about 300m infront of me with his hardeners on and drones out. I convo him, and start assessing him as a target. He seems alright, kinda dumb about PvP perhaps, but still, not too shabby.
Eventually, I come to the conclusion that this T2 cyclone I threw together for frig pounding off the undock probably doesn’t have the stones to take on a Brutix.
I warp over to Balle, while talking to him (none the wiser I had left). I grab the pew cane, and jump back to dodixie. This lovely man is getting impatient, and tells me if I wanna fight, meet him at the sun. Alright… I think about it jumping into dodixie. He’s probably blaster fit, antimatter ammo, which can friggin hurt close up. Now my T2 425 AC’s have a lovely falloff, so I’ll use that to my advantage (i cans learn to PvP 2 rite?).
I warp in at 50, just in case. Sure enough, he warped in at 50 as well to get things on me before I got into range. Targeting, clicky clicky… Pointed, neuted to shit, and Republic Fleet EMP raining into his armor.
I spanked the AB and told my ship to orbit at 10km, as my shield buffer was taking a large amount of damage. At about 10km, the damage lessened by somewhat, and I was still scoring almost the same as before… I finally remember to launch drones, and sick them on him, as he goes into structure and I go into armor.
My buffer vaporized, as well as his, it’s just a small amount of time before one is dead. Being minmatar, I overheat bloody everything, and pray. My damage goes up, and he goes pop just before I hit structure. See? I can fight a fight someone is actually expecting too. 🙂
I get some help from a friendly ninja in TNA (who I believe was Haldr Geitz), who unfortunately had a computer glitch before he got to me during the fight, but he did end up coming to the sun to rep my badly beaten armor, as I scooped the T2 loot and drones of the Brutix.
I went back to sitting on the undock in my cane after repping the heat damage on my modules. My aggro ran out on the Brutix pilot, and he came out in a Rifter to toy with me. He warped in and out a few times, and I got slightly amused. I bought a T1 web off the market, docked, fitted it, and popped back out. He warped in a moment later 10km off the undock, and went boom.
At this point, a person named Captain Rivel started taunting me in local and talking to the Brutix pilot, eventually coming up to my can in a merlin and stealing my ammo. I was already targeting him when he did, and he went pop too.
At this point, I shoulda called it a night. But nooooo. It was my first kill / 3 kills in a month or two, and I decided to fish some more. Rivel had warped to a station, and had then come back to M20 in something a little meatier. I saw him light up red on my overview 10km from me, and got what I like to call “piggy eyes”. This means you see something you want, and move to get it regardless of the circumstances. It’s also in-line with “biting off more than you can chew”
Unfortunately, I had activated my modules, and failed to realize my mistake. He had brought a brick drake. Yep, the same thing I woulda done. I wasn’t watching, assumed too much, and died to the aggression timer on the station dock. Boo hoo. The Cane that killed LUDI’s CEO’s Scorpion was no more.
With that, I promptly bought a new one, and went afk to go get ready to go to bed. Never fly what you can’t afford to field 2 minutes later, kids. In the end, I was happy. I lost a Cane to a good move, but got 3 kills in the process.
