Blasting some dust off

Sooo after a less than stellar roam a week and some back, we headed out again.  Still flying really basic, but fun, T1 cruisers we headed out from Amdonen.  Ami used to be gatecamped at least 12 hours a day.  It was a great place for a fight.  Now it’s mostly empty.  Our biggest threat was someone complementing my blog, temporarily inflating my head so much I couldn’t fit through the out gate.

We headed on towards Antem.  We didn’t even make it to the system, we could tell from statistics that it wasn’t worth it.  Antem used to be another hotbed of action.  The loss of Chain of Cha0s in the system really has been a loss to the game.  Heading on to Gonditsa we found something in progress.  No idea what as there is a 130+ AU warp which gives people time to deagress, and possibly log off safely while our fleet limped in.  During our travels we chased a few ships but I’m not a brilliant enough tactician to catch something really effectively.  We Ping Ponged a Hawk for a bit, missed an Omen by just a bit too much to pursue, and just decided to move on.

Finally re-arriving in Aridia, our old stomping grounds, we tried to poke DPR and get a fight from him but there wasn’t anything going.  We wandered down to Vehan and camped the HUGE gate there and FINALLY got something.  A Thorax popped in and the chase was on.  Scant seconds later the fleet was close in, guns and drones hammering and shortly a bright blast announced the death of our prey, soon to be followed by the pod and the odd Magnate that was snooping around while shots were flying.  Flush with success we warped off to a safe and waited long enough for our timers to go away, then re-entered highsec to dock up.

We had better communication, better numbers, better piloting and were better prepared.  Waddya know we scored more kills.  Funny how that works out.

‘Till next time.  Fly Dangerous.

  1. I can’t help being amused that you spent about 5 men-hours on killing 45M worth of ships and you even considered it worthy of blogging. With such effort you can farm way over a billion by ganking miners. Ganked miners at least care about being ganked while the Magnate pilot was probably more puzzled why anyone cared to kill him than upset.


    What is good in this?

    • Why do you spend time making more money? Got plans for all the money you have now? Do you need more? Is it even about the money?

      Moving even a small fleet requires skills for the leaders and the guys in the fleet. That’s why we do it. Sure we didn’t get to kill much, but for all we knew there could have been a great fight at a gatecamp, there could have been some idiot moving a freighter, we could have caught a numbskull trying to jump a carrier through a gate. You don’t get those things ganking miners, and this trip was a lot less painful on the sec status.
