So I was in a corp for less than a month and during that time I apparently bothered a very specific person.

I, to this day, don't know why. I was a lurker: I did my missions and salvaged. When the corp fleeted up for mission running I was right there with them. Didn't talk much. You probably have people like this in your corps.

I left the corp to join a corp that was more my style. A pilot from my previous corp (keep in mind, this has been months ago) tracks me down and suicide ganks me. Doesn't give a good reason why, just does.

Judging by the other threads I can expect some people to just tell me to gtfo it, but my question is this: what can I do? I don't really want to pursue him because his character is several years old and, from what I saw, has quite a bit of resources at his disposal.

Also: the ship I lost was my money-maker missioning ship (a harbinger). I have a destroyer and a few frigates but now I broke, at least for the time being.

How does he track you down?

Apparently there are Locator agents in EVE that can find out what region and system you are in. I mission out of two systems and they are adjacent to each other. It costs a pretty penny to find someone but, as I mentioned, this guy is pretty loaded.

He did it for the lolz and because you left and it annoyed him, it makes you the perfect target for lolz. What more do you need to know?

You have kill rights on him if he suicide ganked you. You could try to go after him and catch him off guard, chances are he won't see it coming since you are new.

This.

And to add to it:

- remember that whatever he did to you, you can do the same.
- age and SP is [almost] meaningless as he can only apply a limited portion of it while in any given ship.

Congratulations. You have begun your first quest and encountered your nemesis. Enjoy EVE Online's most compelling feature: in-game villains managed by real people, not stale AI scripts! As you advance through the game you will find ways to increase your abilities and counter his. Use diplomacy, trickery, strategy and of course of healthy serving of plain old violence to defend yourself and defeat your arch-enemy.

The first stage of your quest will take you to a Minmatar Academy station, where you will acquire the hidden lore in the fabled Minmatar Frigate and Small Projectiles skillbooks. Learn these well, young pilot and they shall serve you all your days...

Is the Rifter pretty much a must for PvP? I almost have Amarr Frigates to V and I like the punisher.

The Punisher is a beast when fit with AutoCannons and neuts.

You have kill rights on him; you can destroy his ship ONE TIME without CONCORD getting involved. Now, whilst it may seem like his bling-bling ships are off limits to your reactionary aggression, there are a couple of dirt easy ways you can hurt him.

a) If he flies something super bling, and that something is a battleship like a nightmare or mach, you can take him down. Get in your harbinger, and fit her out for maximum DPS, decent armour resists and some buffer. You will want some help, however. This help should come in the form of logistics. There's nothing he can realistically do in a mission space to kill you or escape if you have logistics. Fit a dampener with range script to try to prevent him even being able to lock the logi (who can hold range). A good logi pilot won't need this assist, however.
Cut him down. Ransom him. Blow him up anyway. Laugh at him. Scoop any faction mods that drop and roll about in the wealth laughing.
If he flies a Tengu / other T3 to mission, you will likely struggle at your current skill-set to stick out enough damage to kill it. You can try to neut it out, but it will be hard to get neuts and enough DPS onto a T1 Amarr hull, not to mention holding it down.

Remember to scout and follow him on an alt, so he doesn't get a gist of your intentions.

b) Wait until he is in a Noctis or something that is similarly fragile and expensive. Find it, blow it up. Even a Punisher will do for this. Don't mess about, let him finish salvaging before popping him. You'll get loots and extra tears, and the killmail will be padded.

Keep an eye on your character sheet to check the expiration of killrights. Locator agents are cheap, actually (they cost less than half a mil, a lot less if you're near) and either level 3 or 4 agents will locate him anywhere.

Executing this can be hard and so much can go wrong, but think it over and see what you can come up with.

BTW, if you pull off a), you've got a post for C&P YARRRR!!

You have killrights on him, run some locators and go blow up his ship when he least expects it. You could even get a friend to provide remote repairs for you while you're doing it.

This is why you shouldn't fly anything that will cripple you if you loose it. Just be glad you learnt that lesson with a battlecruiser and not a faction fitted faction battleship.
