So a funny thing happened to me on the way to the...

Two days ago I sent a message to the capsuleer that got me in LowSec. He was the way WAY more experienced captain than I was and obviously knew what he was doing. Any how, I realized that I forgot to say "GF" and also to compliment him on his style/tactics/fit. He replied with some great suggestions and sent a large donation my way! I couldn't believe it. Seems there is honor in space after all. I thanked him a lot and promised to return the gesture one day when the tables are turned.

Yesterday was a pretty dull day really as the system was permanently camped by 5-7 of the enemy who were all in very serious ships and had over 10 years of experience for some of them. So I read mostly..

This morning, my analysis is showing that my net worth is around 140M ISM with about 25% of that in ISK...not too shabby.

I've also decided to move towards a true kiting Tristan fit rather than a drone-boat / Brawler hybrid as I think overall I'll have more success, or at least have better chances.

Hope today is a bit more exciting!

Entry: The Third Horse

Sunday wasn't overly interesting and nothing really stood-out as being overly noteworthy. My net worth is pushing 180M ISK which I'm very happy about even if the change was mostly earned by capturing low paying complexes...anything for the Federation!

I did get an interesting idea in my head and bought a new ship to test it on...but as this channel isn't secure, I can't go into details yet on it. I hunted a destroyer yesterday and it appeared to run away from me but that could just be my wishful thinking. The ship I was using is aggressive and it just might bag me my first kill.

Any how, not much more to report on. The Federation capsuleers in the area are working hard to reclaim systems from the Caldari and for the most part, that seems to be working. If I'm reading the reports right, they haven't had a system swing to them in over two weeks, if not longer .

As usual, more tomorrow.

I've had this happen sometimes, too. It seems like sometimes the pilot just wants to avoid all confrontation with eggers, or maybe thinks that if you're aggessively picking a fight you shouldn't be able to win, you must have backup.

The second's understandable. The first ...

... it makes me sad when capsuleers are comfortable essentially massacring conventional forces for ISK, but can't accept the risk of taking on a peer, even one at an obvious disadvantage.

The age of the pilot and ship type (Frigate vs Destroyer) should have turned into a fight unless as you said, they just wanted to get back to the station for dinner. I'm sure you're right but it's nice to pretend they were fleeing in terror from little old me. Pirate

Entry: Two Weeks!

Hi there,

Celebrated my two week anniversary in space last night with a bottle of spiced wine and long-limb roe as it's been a pretty successful run. My calculations are showing that I'm just over 190M ISK net worth at the moment but that 's still not adjusted for all the tags/insignias/ embalms all of which inflates the net worth figure a lot. Plus most of that is sitting in the market still.

Lost another Tristan yesterday and again it was 100% my fault. There was militia-wide call for assistance in taking down an infrastructure hub in the Reitsato system. So I hopped into the HMCS Dunver, a Tristan-class frigate, all excited to see a fleet action and then blindly jumped into a LowSec system and upon arrival, was promptly vaporized by 4 tactical destroyers camping the gate. Someday I will learn.

I really don't get the appeal of campers...especially if they are seasoned veterans and using T2/T3 gear.

I did grudgingly pick-up two Inquisitor frigates for a great price as I was looking for a cheap ship to capture complexes in. I don't see the point in risking a 1.3M ISK frigate capturing low value complexes when I will be running away regardless as almost everything I see in LowSec is way stronger than me. I could lose 5-8 of these crappy Amarrian frigates for the price of a fitted Tristan and that doesn't included the time spent running around buying modules and equipment for a replacement ship.

Anyhow, my new "kiting" Tristan is coming along nicely and I do see the potential as it rips apart 0.4 rats with ease but I'm a bit nervous as it doesn't have any regen and the cap is pretty low when the warp disrupter is on. But it's a work in progress so....no worries...

As usual, more tomorrow.

ps. Stating to see the need to get a little transport ship to bring gear back to Villore from Dod as a frigate can barely hold enough to fit 3 additional ships. Might need to look into that...

T1 industrial is easy to get into. However, being a FW pilot, you'll still want to scout your route with a frigate even in highsec. As for camping, it's a valid tactic to delay or eliminate reenforcments. Most of the time it's third party pirates allied to one of the factions. So you might want to take some time to get to know the pirates in your AO, and who they tend to work with. (Note: Just because they tend to favor shooting at a peticular group, dosent mean that they won't hunt whoever out of boardom.)

A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.

Great advice Captain Osyn,

I've scouted the local 0.6 and higher systems and have yet to see a hostile and I also went "hunting" in Caldari space and also had no luck finding a FW ship. I will probably just put a shipment together and hire a local transport to take care of it rather than spend the time/SP to do it myself.

Hello!

Not much to report as I stayed on the station for most of yesterday flushing my hanger of all the stuff I've been accumulating from wrecks. Sold about 2.7M ISK worth if salvaged gear and reprocessed junk and put a few more things of value up for sale.

I headed out and "stabilized" Vifrevaert for the FDU even if the LP rewards were next to nothing. Will probably help stabilize a few more in Essence today.

More tomorrow...I hope a bit more interesting!

We should set up a play date. Not asking you to join up with us, but we could show you the joys of flying when you have people who have your back. Maybe do a bit of a multicultural roam....

Wouldn't be that hard honestly. We probably have anything you fly and also fly them. Well most of us anyways....

At least three memory transitions in two weeks. It's probably just too much for a new tin-fish. Issues were expected.

She's mocking you. Your 200mm thick eyeliner is silly. Get rid of it.

It's been a few LY since I read something this amusing, not only from Nanako Chosokabe but from the other inhabitants of the thread.

The young one has sent me down the path of old memories more then ones in her entries, I wish you fair winds young one, and may your guns always hit home.

Honestly I can't recommend that. What can I say, I have too much respect for Gradient to pretend it's remotely worth it.

Entry: Shopping!

Sorry guys. Busy day today so this will be short.

Lost another Tristan yesterday in a stupid way...I really liked that fit too sadly. I'm running around right now and writing this from Dodixie as I didn't have time this morning to even have a coffee let alone make an entry. The short version of what happened is that I flew to a system that the FDU was attacking the hub and basically flew into two criminal cruisers once there. I literally flew right too them like an idiot. I'm sure the two red ships had a good chuckle about that...

So...more shopping around today....If I get a chance I will update later today once back in Villore.
