W/E Im not playing games nor wasting time with you on this.

THis post was meant to clearly document and put out there how a bomber works from the learning experience to a full understanding. It was clearly indictating this was a first time experience for a NEW bomber pilot.

Troll that way -------->

Cripes. People will **** and moan about anything these days.

Power to you BB; keep on keeping on. Your gunpowder diary isn't the most aethestically written thing I've read on here but you've clearly found something fun to do in New Eden. So you killed T1 ships; who wouldn't? You should see the things Kestrels drop these days.*

As someone who's skill-cooking a bomber pilot of their own I approve of this product/and or service.

*disclaimer: I do not advocate attacking Kestrels in a Stealth Bomber

You guys do realize his only been flying a SB for 5 days right? He's obviously not the best but you can't blame a guy for trying to learn.

I love reading others experiences like this in eve.

Me and my corp do alot of this sort of stuff in Catch to -A- with same types of ships and we'll get 5-10 kills a day in there home systems. Its so much fun watching them ***** in local and it completely brings a system with 40+ guys to a halt. Its even better with a dictor or 2 and pulling them from the JB's inline with the stations.

Keep up the good work mate, i'll be keeping a close eye on this thread Razz

Interesting stories thus far. Sounds like you are learning quite a lot in a short period of time. Keep up the good work there! I am just starting out and have not decided what I REALLY want to get into yet, so looking at your perspective is intriguing.

So, I came across this thread, then the blog, and thought to myself "My, this guy looks baitable. I'll take a crack at him!"

Turned out he is.

Cloaky campers always think they're the elite lords of pvp. They don't seem to realize, we don't care. Most of us know how to either bait/kill, deter, or just avoid you so we do our usual thing. I just feel sorry for the noobs who end up exploding. At least it teaches em something.

That's pretty much the only way to learn that lesson.

It's best that they learn it early on.

It takes patience, which most people don't have. To insinuate that it takes less skill to be a cloaker is simply your form of elitism. Even the most seasoned vets are capable of getting ambushed if the plan is good enough.

On the strategic level, bombers are awesome projectors of "potential" threat. You may not die but you have to take extra precautions to avoid them. Like chess pieces on the board, keeping your movements in check.

P.S. for clarification on the "ibis kill"

It was an abondoned ship that was left in a system for over 3 days. I did not actually get killed by a noctis......

Day 15 FCON a break, and a new begining (posted from blog)


Day 15 went pretty slow I was anxious to start implementing some new changes which will take time but they are comming along.

Also dont forget to add Bomb4U_pub to your chat log and come join us. We are actually up to about 7 active people!

Ok so I wont waste much time on this post. Day 15s event was a solo skiff that jumped through a FCON JB. Unfamiliar with the setup I uncloaked and started wailing on it. I think I hit it once before it warped. The good thing I learned here is the amount of time I have before pos guns started targeting you. You can get about 3-4 volleys. If you cant kill it in 3 get out.


So now for the big announcement.

Bolsterbomb is starting a bomber/recon division in the gallente federation FW. The recon/bomber division will be stationed in 00 with a jump clone located near the heart of FW lowsec space. This will allow the bomber division to participate in bomber/recon work in 00 while being able to participate in FW and make money. Best of both worlds right.

This is where my concentration will be for a few days. I am trying to re-establish my isk income since I am down quite a bit and figuring new "passive" income sources.

Anyone that is intrested please join the bomb4u_pub channel or send me evemail inquiring about the division.

Again I am just starting it, so if you are intrested it will be small numbers and hopefully moving to larger numbers. There is no requirement to join my corp to participate but you either have to be a FW member or be approved by me first before being allowed to join in on the roams.

For those that are in different FW, if you fly in the bomber division a temporary cease fire will always be inacted while flying together and in our home system.
