Yes, Bruce is joining Brick Squad.  This will certainly not result in fail of any kind.


Emboldened – and a Pilgrimmage

Amazing what a bit of cash in the pocket can do for one’s aggression.  I was straight into Provvie again looking for likely targets.

There was a wreck on a gate in H6 which looked appealing (and a lot like a trap), but as there was nobody in local I docked up in the Freeport and fitted some salvagers and a probe launcher plus a bomb reload and jetted back out to grab it.  Three dual-salvager cycles later it hadn’t budged (I only have Salvaging III on Bruce) and someone popped up on D-scan, so I GTFO.

I thought I’d keep an eye on the wreck though, and sure enough a Cheetah zipped up to it and whipped a salvager of his own out.  Align, bomb, very dodgy GTFO straight to the 9UY gate where I landed three feet short of a bubble.  Apparently I tore off the covops’ shields, but that’s not really worth a 700k bomb!  His mates arrived in short order and we exchanged polite gf’s before I jumped out for downtime.

On doing a bit more reading, bomb-only seems only to be effective as a kill strategy against a) MWD frigates or b) destroyers.   That means either an inty burning straight at me, with careful range management and timing, or a dictor sitting on a gate.  Even then, it’s iffy.

So I think I’ll head back to the torp fit, study Valadeya’s guide and see if I can bag me a cruiser or two.

The Pilgrimmage

As a long time fan of Podded Podcast, I’d heard a lot about Providence and in particular the 9UY4-H UNITY Station, the spiritual home of Ushra’Khan (now Damu’Khonde).  Being a Minmatar RP alliance I always felt a little soft spot for U’K, and I couldn’t resist sticking my nose in to check it out; especially as with Pandemic Legion rolling into Provvie, UNITY may not be in Matari hands for long.  Frankly I expected to be melted the second I jumped in, but Tifa is a bit of a lucky charm and I grabbed a happy snap just before downtime.  Quality.  I salute you D’K, come for your people.

No Loot For… Me

Got tired of running missions after finishing just one.  Bought a new Hound (yes, I did name it Tifa is Awesome), fit it minimally for bombing for a total cost of 30M (out of my total 42M), jumped into my no-implant clone and went bombing in Provvie.

Did a lot of stalking and was 10km from launching on a Crow before he warped off.  That would have been a nice kill.

In the end I launched on an Agony Cheetah who was salvaging after his gang knocked off a ‘Geddon.  The pilot was good – he had his finger on the warp button as he salvaged, and spammed it as soon as he saw me decloak.  I got a good bomb off, and he evemailed me afterwards to say it was close enough that he heard the bomb in warp :)

Sigh, still no killmails for me, but I’m getting closer.
