o/ I decided to yarr it up. 5 day old char, in a rifter, prowling low sec near OMS. warp in on a drake. I should have warped out, but, I'd been looking for targets for awhile with no luck. was bored. maybe I get lucky if the drake is failfit. engaged, scrammed, orbitted at 500. he hits me with heavies, releases T1 warriors x 5; hits me with NOS. I'm in trouble, trying to shoot drones but I'm already half in armor..still alive and shooting though. I start looking for a warpable as I hit structure, pop, and off I go to dock in a pod w/ GCC.

Jesus - a rifter.... A 5-day old probably couldn't break it's tank with *nothing* fitted.

Hmm..one speeds you up, the other slows you down. one or the other, not both, is what I think you're saying..

One gives you more tank and makes you slower, the other makes you faster but gives you less tank.

I doubt a 5 year old could kill a drake in a rifter, let alone a 5 month old, unless it was totally fail fit.

In a rifter (what else). Aggressed a drake in lowsec, killing his drones for giggles and ran... GCC timed out and I warped to a station and he turned up there a second later, and chose to attack me - The sentry guns opened up on him, and I saw the opportunity - dived in and pointed him, adding my fire to the sentries and screaming for some company to finish him off.

His shields went and he was bleeding armor but it was going to be close as my repper tried to keep up with the missile damage, but then friendlies landed and finished him off. But essentially, it was rifter vs drake and I won :)
