So a quiet night on the gate camp ended with us camping the hisec gate for an hour and missing everything sexy. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. So I realized I had some things in Fihrneh that were needed for the gatecamp so I pick a ship. I look through my hangar, no shuttle, and a shuttle wouldn’t have the room for what I needed so a combat ship was called for. My eyes lit on _██_ (cuz ya see we’re the Fancy Hats and it looks like a hat) an Armor Cane that is meant for small roams. Maybe not the greatest choice but if I get jumped by whoever is wandering around I won’t go down like a chump.
Two jumps out from Udi I see a neutral retriever warping towards my out gate. I get into warp land after he jumps and pop through. I just miss him on the other side, but again he is heading my way. I chase AGAIN, not believing that he isn’t docking up with a red hurricane chasing him. Finally I catch him in Fihrneh. He jumps at the same time as me, I reapproach gate and overheat my mids. He decloaks and I’m on him like a starving dog on a raw steak. A purifier decloaks and shoots me. Vas ist Lost? I check local, just the retriever pilot (now in a pod) and the purifier and several blues. I take down the purifier and scoop the loot as my armor hits 2/3. The gate fires again with two new neuts in local just as I warp to station to dock up.
Had I been in a shuttle or a fast frigate I never would have gotten the kills, and while the loot wasn’t spectacular, it was a nice little but of solo pvp and helped me in my quest for -10.0 sec status.
