Ok I know you guys get a ton of these but I had to post it. Thursday or Friday sitting at home sick, having called into work, I got bored while mission running in a drake. I’d fly into lvl 3s never go below 50% shield even with full agg….it gets old quick. So out of absolute boredom I created a new character on one of my alts accounts that I do not use much and thus begins my acts of piracy.

I examined the various frigates versus the starter character skills, and I decided on a Gallente Soldier. She popped out with gunnery 5 and small hybrids 5. Perfect, I went to my industrialist character, built 5 Incursus’. I immediately hopped in one realized I had tons of fitting issues, but I made a fit…kinda… Then I flew to low sec, I soon found a Hulk mining in a ice field, I proceeded to attack…POP…oops…was a bit too jumpy, I was still in the system before low sec. I should have known. Loss #1.

I returned, got my next ship. This time made it to low sec, evaded a gate camp. Found 2 nanophoons…and attacked. I lasted maybe 10 seconds… Loss #2

Here I realized that low sec might not be the way to go in a low SP T1 frig. Ok…now what…I got it! Can theft! I flew to a well populated system and proceeded to steal from, bump, orbit, and just all around annoy the locals. It was not long before I got a Dessy to fire on me. I returned fire, got him into structure and then he warped off…oh…right…warp scrams. Damn it. So I went off and trained to use warp scrams.

From there I found I had more issues with fits due to AB/Warp scram/web ect. I kept training for fits and such got better over the day or two. Then I returned to the system and proceeded to annoy the locals again. This time I got a Kessy, to steal from me, I charged over there, scrammed him and pounded away…a moment latter Pop! Kill #1. Woot!

I proceeded to attack a Harpy: Loss # 3. A faction frig that got away from me, and told me in local that he was coming back with a much bigger ship that I would run from as soon as I saw… in warps a Nighthawk…and I attack! Loss #4.

Carrying on with my antics, I got a Iteron mark V to agg on me. Having no warp scram due to fittings, I webbed and bumped until he popped. <<<proud of that one Kill #2

Got taken out by a Punisher, then another Dessy took me out. I took out a mining Merlin (who does that?) Then I traveled to another system this time in Catalyst dessy. Took out a retriever that put up a good fight with drones. Then his buddy came back with a Caracal and took me out.

All and all… some of the most fun I have had in Eve!

Today while changing a skill over I realized I had mail from someone I didn’t know… reading it I realized it was my first “hate mail” Now to be honest it was not truly hate mail, really it was a threat, however, it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside… kinda like I ate a carebare… It read something like this:

“Good job destroying my miner, now I am gunna get my warbird and hunt you. Consider yourself warned”

My first thought was… “YAY something to shoot at!” Very Happy

Ok! I will even come to low sec if your security status doesn’t allow for you to come to me. I will fight you no matter what you fly. However I don’t like to travel too far from Caldri space, as its where all my spare ships are. Also keep in mind I fly T1 frigs and dessys with crap fits so I won’t give much of a fight to an experience pirate. Sometimes… you just have to be suicidal to enjoy life. Very Happy

I love the part about attacking the nanophoons and the nighthawk. I had three rifters try to jump me the other day. I thought it was so cute that I let them live. I didn't even shoot back - just giggled and jumped.

You're funny. Keep it up.

Last night was probably the most fun I have had as of yet. With in 10 minutes of getting online I find a group consisting of and Osprey, an Omen, and a couple few barges mining into a jet can. Yay! My chance of living through this one is…um 10% maybe. So I steal from the can, the Omen and Osprey begin to fire, soon I have to warp out but not before I took out all their drones. We begin to chat a bit in local, also I began talking to someone who recognized me from here (if you are reading this then Hello!) I head back in… All that’s left there is One barge and he Osprey… odd. But no matter, I attack the Osprey and quickly proceed to get him to structure. I offered my first ransom, however no response, so I proceed to blow up the Osprey. I sit there by the can, bumping and generally annoying the barge that is left as it hadn’t fired on me, when two drakes warp in. One being the pilot of the Osprey, I quickly take a lot of damage and have to warp out. Now, chatting in local they inform me that they have called in more reinforcements (in the for of a Rohk and a Raven), and that I should come back to the belt. I of course can not resist the call back to the belt! Upon arriving there really is a Rohk, a Raven, and one Drake, all of which lock me but do not have agg so they do not fire. Not long after the Raven gets bored of me bumping him or just bored in general and leaves, but the Rohk almost 40km away and the drake sitting on top of me remain locked. Chatting in local some more I tell the former Osprey Pilot to come back with his Drake so we can fight it out (yes me in my Incurus wanted to duel one on one with a Drake) He arrived back in the belt approximately 10 seconds after the aggression counter ran out. Damn, now I gotta get agg again. Ok there is a can that the barge is still mining into that has his name right on it. So I steal the loot……… wrong can, the Rohk and other Drake open up and I have long enough to see Conord come in and Blow up the Drake I was trying to duel. After a bit of confusion about the Concording, I have to say this was amazingly fun, these were great people to chat with in Local, thancks for being good sports guys, especially to the guy who lost and Osprey and a Drake

Me: Scratch one Osprey
Rohk/Drake: Scratch one Me
Concord: Scratch one Drake

Oddly enough that was only my first encounter of 3 with Drakes last evening… and only the first of which that ended in the Drake being Concorded. The second followed an hour latter while I was wandering belts stealing ore. Apparently I made someone mad and while flying around a Drake targets me (I figured he was ratting and I had stole his wreck or something) a couple missiles fly my shields drop to nothing, I charge in… then POP. Concord showed up and he was gone. So I took the liberty of relieving his wreck of all loot and moving on. =)

To you who tells me to go to low sec, I did last night, however it was not very fruitful. I mostly found no one there at all. Then I found someone on Auto pilot in a Caracal, fire! POP!...oh…right…sentry guns damn…

Ammar Sentry Gun: Scratch one Me.

Concord: Scratch ANOTHER Drake on my account.

My final encounter involved someone telling me that if I stole their ore they have buddies in battlecruisers that would show up and take me out. So I of course, stole his ore, and proceeded to sit right next to it waiting for the battle cruiser to show up… what shows up but… a badger… It takes the ore I transferred over and I jam and pop it destroying the rest of the ore. Again I proceed to **** there informing him in local or which belt I am in so he can send in this battlecruiser (which at this point I did not believe existed) a few seconds latter a drake warps in and sends out some drones, I target the drones first, and proceed to blow them up, and then get blown up by the Drakes missiles. Afterwards I chatted in local with the two folks that were in on it who were both quite new.

I gave them both some advice on their methods (mostly on the Drake and how to fit it as this is what my other Main flies, that’s right my other main, I am not an alt anymore) So in the end:

Me: Scratch one Badger
Drake/Badger Pilot: Scratch one Me.

So in the end I killed, an Osprey and a Badger (badger badger badger…sorry had to)
Concord Killed 2 Drakes for firing on me.
I lost 2 Incurus’ and 1 Catalyst.

All and all a great time, and definitely met some great people, a big thank you to every one out there who was smart and no mean to me needlessly! Especially to those who gave me a good fight!

And in closing I will quote one person I stole from:

“Stealing is healthy”
Very Happy

I think it was my Punisher that took you out on that first night. I had a feeling that you were surprisingly decisive and well-fitted for a new player Very Happy

It was a good fight and I am glad you are enjoying the dark side!

ha ha! I started a throwaway alt for the same purpose and shot down a Brutix in my Rifter... after taking no damage at all. He hit me once, and my sheilds recharged!

Then, 3 Caracals jump in and i'm like Shockedoh crapShocked and then I see "Flameburst light missle hits you lightly for 10.7 damage"

I warped out laughing.

Hmm I think I may make this a weekly update. I have discovered lately that there are not many people out in the belts at the time I am on during the week. Last night I fought a Scorp, and that was it... Neutral (it was fun mind you, but didn’t get my heart racing or anything as I knew the out come) No one else paid any attention to me. Got my corp mate in his badger to Steal about 10 mil worth of ore of some macroers, but otherwise and boring night. Bleh if only I could be online when more people are! Oh well, I shall try again tonight! Very Happy

Hello again Darcy, it was me that recognised you from on here the other night lol
See you've been having more fun and games lol
Keep the updates coming - they make for an interesting read Very Happy And sounds like the kill to die ratio isnt too bad either Laughing

I am also an ore thief/PVP player in High Secure.
It's awesome to play at the limit of the High Secure rules and to be protected by Concord.
I am curious about a few points.
You are in a non-NPC corp, don't they war-dec you so they can pod you?
When you steal a can the full corp of the owner as kill right on you for 15 min, but if they shoot at you, no one in your corp as kill right on them. Right?

Last night was quite awesome. I got exactly 0 kills, and got killed twice. Went something like this.

Finding no one to bother in the belts I flew out into low sec. Noticing quite a few people in local which I found a bit odd as low sec is usually empty. I start flying to belts. Belt 1 = 2 recon ships. Belt 2 = a Ferox, and a Caracal killing a rat. Feeling ambitious I announce to local that “I am the worst pirate ever” and proceed to attack the Ferox (its shields were down I couldn’t resist) This led to my entire overview being filled with a combination of ships and drones that were all locked on me Shocked Needless to say I did not last long but man was it a blast!! That was my first run in with Anti-Pirates. I chatted with them in local for a few mins, all good folks! Great fight it was a blast! I had a screen shot but apparently window’s vista or my laptop hates eve and ate it… Sad

Also some other fun: stealing from a pair of Covetors. I guess 2 is too many as their drones kinda ate me alive. I warped out repped and came back to one covetor. I proceeded to ignore his drones and attack, got him to structure before I went POP! My conclusion: Ice miners get much angrier when you steal their loot…I mean who wouldn’t with cycle lengths like those!! If I had to sit there for 10 min just to get 1 piece of Ice I think I would fight a Dread trying to steal my ore just for something to do!!! Oi! Rolling Eyes

I had a run in with Darcy last weekend...

I was sitting in my modified mining Cormorant, perhaps dreaming idly of the things I would purchase with my ISK, my lasers drilling into the asteroids around me.
It's Sunday afternoon, and the asteroid field is busier than usual, a couple of other miners are there mining away alongside me.
Suddenly I see a small frigate warping into the asteroid field, flashing red on my overview screen, its clearly trouble.

You see: about half an hour earlier another pirate had run up and popped my jetcan before I had even noticed he was there. Naturally I'm suspicious of this new frigate, but I can't believe I would be so unlucky that this would happen twice to me in the same day (it had never happened to me before.)

So I'm watching this little frigate as it flies closer to my position.
Its 50k... 40k... 30k away.... now I know its heading straight for me.
But I can't do anything about it can I?
I can't hold a 10th of the ore in that jetcan in my destroyers tiny cargohold and by the time my Badger gets here it will be too late.
So I'm forced to watch in disbelief as this little ship flys right up and pops my jetcan right there in front of me.

At this point I just flip out, all I can think about is blowing that little jerk out of space. That was an hours work in that can!
All sense of reason goes out the window and I engage the frigate with the 2 tiny turrets I fitted on my destroyer to fend off 0.9 sec NPC pirates with. Stupid right?

Fortunately for me I'm in such a rage I don't target Darcy's ship before I start firing and instead my turrets start unloading on the asteroid I was mining.
By the time I have disengaged my turrets and correctly selected the frigate I have cooled off enough to realise that Darcy is most likely flying a fully equipped battle frigate, complete with warp jammer, and I won't stand a chance against him.

Sighing, I unlock his ship from target and warp away to another asteroid field to start all over again.
A little while afterwards I fly to another asteroid field just in time to see Darcy destroying a less fortunate miner than myself.

At the time I was fuming with Darcy, but reading about his adventures here I have to smile.
My advice to other miners is to calm down and think carefully before you try to avenge your murdered jetcan, attacking them is just what these high sec pirates want you to do. Very Happy

Haha, really enjoyed this! Damn, never thought of that, went straight to low sec.SadYou are right about low sec, it's mostly pretty much desolate and by the sound of it it seems you are having fights way more often than I do.Smile

And yes, I must admit that most of the kills I remember were with Punisher. Harbinger is a good looking and powerful ship, but orbiting a webless cruiser and pew pewing at him with small guns... priceless. Frigs ftw!Wink

Posted - 2007.02.23 06:23:00 - [30]

what system do you usually travel through ?
i haveto see this to believe it lol.

Sounds like fun ( pirateing ). But i would rather help the poor miners that are being subjected to your onsloughts of horror. Maybe you and I will lock turrests some day.

But keep posting your stories, they are fun to read :)
