So I have been known to go pirating occasionally, and sometimes I get good fights, others I get blown up in new and sometimes hilarious ways.

This is not one of those stories.

This one goes back a little ways, I had just finished training Heavy Assault Cruisers IV, and finally gotten into a Vagabond, and I had been anxious to give it a try in a real fight. Unfortunately, no such opportunity presented itself.

So, I decided to go can flipping with my brand new Vagabond. I swapped out the Energy Neutralizer, for a Tech II Cloaking Device, and headed out to high sec.

I jump out, and check my D-Scan, see a couple of Hulk's, and decide to look around. Warp to the first belt, and there's a guy mining in a Hulk here, but no jet can. So I hopped around the belts a bit, but none of the people out there seemed to be mining into a can.

Well then... Onward to the next system!

I jumped into Freatlidur, and warped to a central planet to D-Scan. I saw quite a few Hulks out there, but only a couple of jet cans.

Alright, looks promising so far...

I land in a belt, with a Hulk mining into a jet can about 60km off. I burn over towards him with my MWD. Jeez the Vagabond is fast, covered the 60km in several seconds as I approached the can. I quickly dropped my own can and scooped his minerals over to it. The Hulk immediately warped off.

So I started burning away from the can, and hit my cloak when I got to about 20km off. Aligned my ship to the can, and waited patiently. After about five minutes, I started to get bored of sitting there, and wanted to go find some other less invisible target, but I stayed put. Man, I am glad I did. So fast forward to about 15 minutes later, I know it was at least 15 minutes, my aggression timer had expired. I am just getting ready to take off, and in warps... An Orca!

He has my full attention now, as he lazily slow boats over to the jet can, and as he gets in transfer range, I decloak. He grabs the can and starts to align, and I overheat my MWD and slam my brand new Vagabond right into the side of his Orca, I was spamming the target lock, waiting for the sensor recalbration timer to expire.

Those six seconds seemed to take forever, but finally I got him locked and pointed.

I hit my guns, and start orbiting him at 17km. I am slowly burning my way through his shields, and he launches Hammerhead II's and sends them after me. I manage to keep them off me for a while by pulsing my MWD, but I am starting to run dangerously low on cap, and his drones soon began making headway through my shields.

By this point he is at about three quarters armor, and I am just hitting my peak recharge on my shields. I start wondering if I am going to be able to pull this off, and decide to try to ransom him and save myself the risk of losing the kill. So I try to convo him, and I get the popup that he is "offline or unavailable". This fool tried to logoffski. No ransom for him! I bring my concentration back to the task at hand, overheat my guns, and try to get through this guys armor. My shields are at about 10%, and they won't last much longer. He is just hitting 1/3 armor.

At this point, it could no longer be a solo kill, so I started calling for help in corp chat, and two of my buddies jumped out and headed over. I was starting to take armor damage, so I told them to hurry up! The Orca is almost in structure and I am about half armor when they finally land on grid with us, and we finish him off in short order.

Awesome first kill for my brand new Vagabond. After we post the mail, we notice that it was a double kill! He had a Muninn in his ship bay of the Orca. Ouch.

I was on one of my travels and decided to doc up in Jouv.

figured the locals has been getting lax wth me not around there anymore. Scanned the belts on directional and saw a can with a bantam and a Raven.

Warp to and there it was, seems like a two friends mining with the Raven buddie pilot there for Anti Flipper Duties. The can belonging to the Raven pilot and the bantam mining into it.

So I got my little Merlin into gear thinking wth... If I loose it I loose in a blaze of retardation engaging a Raven.

So.. click click, can flipped. The Raven yellow boxes me and starts firing his cruise missles doing a whopping 11 damage. My passive recharge rate was tanking him, so I wait for the drones as I start to engage. No drones? Slowly eating into his shields, slowly wearing him down with my Merlin.

Local erupts into an orgy of TEARS about how can a ship as cheap as mine survive this long against a Raven. 10 minutes later and Jouv Local looking like Jita local the Raven pops.

Threats of petitions for cheating since there is no way a Merlin can kill a Raven.

In this case... Yes it can. Never gage a Character by his age.

Wait. what? Surely it's painstakingly obvious that you kill his drones, no? No drones, no dps, no orca.
A vagabond should 1 or 2 shot hammerheads especially if they're following you at their orbit range and MWDing now and then! Shocked then you could have just sat at 0 on him, maximising your dps afterward.

What?

I was pirating, like usual, I can flip, he can flips me back, I bring in my battlecruiser. Then he comes back with his hauler, I locked him and attacked him, then CONCORD came and smacked me upside the head. He had aggro through the whole thing, I don't know why I was CONCORDed



Quote:
Greetings Pilot,

Thank you for contacting EvE Online customer support.

It appears as tho the pilot in question stole from your jetcan around 17:59, and your combat was initiated at 18:15. It could be a terribly bad timing error, as it appears the criminal flag would have dropped mere moments before you engaged him. Unfortunate, but sadly there is nothing I can do in this instance, Concord were well within their rights to blow up your vessel for criminal activities.

If you require any further assistance please feel free to contact us again.

Best regards,

This one time in band.... ermm.. in the German Channel:
A 2009 char comes in, complaining about his 0.0 Corp kicking him, because they thought he was a spy and that he didnt know how to get his stuff out of that area now as he wasnt allowed to dock at the stations.
I had a good day and tried to explain to him that he should just sell his stuff via contracts or find a willing freighter pilot.
He had no idea how contracts work, didnt know about collateral and wanted to offer 1 (ONE) Mil for the job.

This was the moment things got extremely interesting for me *evil grin*
I offered to move his stuff and all that he had to do was contract everything to me so I can sort it out and see how many times I would have to fly *coughs*
As he couldnt figure out how to contract his stuff to me, I offered to join audio channel and explain it to him.
Guess he wasnt ready to hear a female voice.

Within 15 minutes I was in possession of all his assets in 0.0 (about 200/250mil in mods, books and ships).

I was JUST about to say thank you for your kind donation when he mentioned his "nice" Hyperion somewhere in Hisec.
For sure I wanted that ship now, too.

I told him to show me his fitting so that I could give him some ideas how to fit it better... to make his mission-running a bit more efficent.
After seeing the fit I knew how to get my hands on that Hyperion.
"Hmm I have some t2 large rigs laying around that I dont need anymore, if you want to I can fly over and fit them for you... or can you fit them yourself already? Free of course, I found them on a wreck at a gate. Oh no worries you can trust me, I have a good reputation (says the woman with a huge bounty on her head and a neg sec status :P )"
His greed kicked in.

18 jumps later I was the owner of this Hyperion aswell.

What followed this 400/500mil scam is unbelievable: he spammed the German Channel, German Help Channel and English Help Channel for a solid 11 hours about how evil I am, and that NO 40 year old woman should act like this.
He also mentioned that I am a RL criminal for trying to steal his key (we still are trying to figure out what he means lol) and that he feels sorry for my kids.
He demanded to speak to an admin (his words) or customer support about getting me banned from the game for criminal actions..
So, this guy gave me (and 3 channels) a constant flow of delicious tears for over 11 hours.

I was co-host on EVE-Radio that afternoon and of course the DJ found out about the story aswell. We talked about it on air and MANY people joined the German Channel to see the victims tears. Things went crazy *laughs*

People donated me isk left and right and thanked me for the show lol
My husband rewarded me with a medal:
Deluxe Tear Harvester - For supreme skill in extracting and harvesting the most delicious tears in known space.

A week later I see the guy in local.
My directional showed him in a Covetor... mining into a can Twisted
I warp to him, flip his can and warp out to a spot 300km away from him.

Convo pops up: NABS!! What have you done ? Your victim is spamming both help channels now, because you were evil to him again.
I join the channels and yep there he is, demanding to speak to an admin/GM to get me banned from EVE for being a RL criminal trying to steal his key (doh?)
This went on for another 2 hours until the people in both channels told him that those channels were HELP channels not Tear Channels.

So yes, I am an evil woman. A bad mother. A RL Criminal (LOL)

Thanks to all those people who provided me the chatlogs, as I wasnt online for the whole 11 hours.. I had a blast reading them :)

Depends on how many times they have been killed after paying a ransom. By default minnie pilots pay F ' All. On the other hand people that fly caldari/gallente ships seems to pay alot easier. Amarr Ship like the Minnie ships, they go down fighting.

This is from my personal experience so ofcourse it will differ for others.

~this is an alt btw~


So, here am I, minding my own business in 0.0 sitting at a gate when all of a sudden a dictor warps in at 20km from gate. So I do what anyone would do.... 

*locks target*
*opens fire* 

Needless to say he went down fast. The interesting thing is that he popped a bubble right before he explodes, preventing his pod of escaping.

*locks pod* *
*opens convo*

Victim: WTF?
Me: You got 10 seconds to transfer 100 mil ISK.

*closes chat* 
5 seconds later I received 20 mil ISK.
Now that is a complete insult!
*opens fire* 
*pop*

1 min later *victim wants to chat with you* 

Victim: What the **** man, I paid!
Me: No you only paid 1/5 of the ransom. So I used 4/5 of the bullets that I would've normally used to kill you.
Victim: **** you, you son of a *****!
*closes window*

*blocks*
