So I haven’t had a blog post in a while. Well, primarily that is cause I am working on my first EVE Video and secondly, sadly because not much blog worthy has happened. How long this movie is going to take to complete I have no idea. To sum it up, I pretty much suck at Sony Vegas, or I am just missing some very fundamental basics. If anyone can point me to some nice tutorials then please pvt / comment on the post 😉

On to more things Ninja.

The 0rphanage recently completed what they call “Pew Pew Palooza”. With this event they wardec a huge amount of large 0.0 alliances summing the warbill up to some insane amount of 10.5Bil. During this week many ships have their tanks liberated and killed.  If I remember correctly, we had some peeps wardec us during this period. Well, they had to cough up a crazy amount of ISK for some pew pew lol. Anyways. Thanks to this and some incredibly daft behavior by our war targets I managed to clock in 401 kills in the month of July. That is a personal record. It was fun in the beginning but towards the end it was pretty boring swatting the flies in Jita. Pods and shuttles are in the order of the day.

Apart from that we have had one or two fleet fights.

I lost my hurricane in that specific fight if I can recall.

We also get baited on the 4-4 undock. Typically something juicy undocks and all the trigger happy folk agress immediately. This would then shortly be followed by something like:

(click to embiggen)

I made that one yes. Strangely enough as I just insta popped a rifter I think. I was just lucky to not be called primary and was able to dock up and avoid the whole mess 😀

All this is good fun. You get to camp the busiest undock in the game and get kills. All this while you are working or attending to some house chores that allow you to watch your monitor from a distance. All fun untill it you notice your only killing pods and shuttles. Meh.

This had me draw my attention to a different kind of piracy in the game. Solely due to the fact that I have not yet succeeded in pulling this stunt off to make a story worthy enough of telling, I will keep the details to myself. For now at least 😉 For the sake of telling this next story though, lets say that this random guy convos my alt, and offers me hauling services. Yeah, lets go with that 🙂 Not long into the convo I realize we are at war with this guys alliance. SHWEET. He started the convo as follows.

[ 2011.08.05 15:58:29 ] SevenLZ > I fly providence

Nice and to the point. That’s what I want. A providence pilot. And what better than a Providence pilot that my main account is at war with!? 😀

[ 2011.08.05 16:03:50 ] SevenLZ > i'm willing to take any contracts
[ 2011.08.05 16:04:14 ] SevenLZ > 809k m3 on my ship
[ 2011.08.05 16:04:47 ] [innocent alt] > is this toon the one that flies it?
[ 2011.08.05 16:04:54 ] SevenLZ > sure is
[ 2011.08.05 16:06:41 ] [innocent alt] > how soon are you able to accept a contract?
[ 2011.08.05 16:06:55 ] SevenLZ > depends on where i need to go
[ 2011.08.05 16:07:14 ] SevenLZ > freighter is parked in Yrmori atm
[ 2011.08.05 16:08:06 ] [innocent alt] > ok sec let me see which hauling ones we have available

Most of us were in Rens at the time. Roaming around in frigates proves to be more fun than most people want to admit 😉 From the convo you can see I wanted to scope if this wartarget is the Providence pilot, and where I had to get the fleet logged off (incase he has neutral eyes) ready to poon him. It so happened that a corpmate had some Giant Secure Containers in a system near Rens, which wasn’t too far from where this guy had his freighter parked.

[ 2011.08.05 16:08:11 ] [innocent alt] > what rate are you going to look at?
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:18 ] SevenLZ > well, whatever seems fair
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:20 ] [innocent alt] > also what will be the completion time if I can get one near the 
area of your freighter?
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:26 ] SevenLZ > don't want to kill the profit margin
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:33 ] SevenLZ > freighter can come to you
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:36 ] SevenLZ > i prefer a 3 day window
[ 2011.08.05 16:09:44 ] SevenLZ > i work in afghanistan, so sometimes we lose connection
[ 2011.08.05 16:10:58 ] [innocent alt] > ok it looks like I have one that we are waiting for
 the guy to log on that is pretty urgent.
[ 2011.08.05 16:11:03 ] [innocent alt] > lemme get the details quickly.
[ 2011.08.05 16:11:07 ] [innocent alt] > do you have time now mate?
[ 2011.08.05 16:11:28 ] SevenLZ > i've got a couple hours yet
[ 2011.08.05 16:15:44 ] [innocent alt] > hows a 4 jump quick one sound?
[ 2011.08.05 16:16:09 ] SevenLZ > like a 10 minute job, haha
[ 2011.08.05 16:16:23 ] [innocent alt] > well we are that desperate lol
[ 2011.08.05 16:16:52 ] SevenLZ > i'm 8 jumps from my freighter
[ 2011.08.05 16:17:35 ] [innocent alt] > I think this one is from Malukker to Rens
[ 2011.08.05 16:18:36 ] [innocent alt] > Malukker
[ 2011.08.05 16:19:13 ] [innocent alt] > Can you help us with that one then I'll get the contract 
setup? Its a pretty urgent one atm.
[ 2011.08.05 16:19:25 ] SevenLZ > Sure thing
[ 2011.08.05 16:20:17 ] [innocent alt] > awesome
[ 2011.08.05 16:20:26 ] [innocent alt] > hold on lemme get the contract sorted
[ 2011.08.05 16:20:38 ] SevenLZ > it'll be a hot minute before i get there
[ 2011.08.05 16:21:11 ] [innocent alt] > what does that mean?
[ 2011.08.05 16:21:22 ] SevenLZ > freighter has an align time of 57 seconds
[ 2011.08.05 16:21:33 ] SevenLZ > so multiply my jumps to malukker by 1 minute
[ 2011.08.05 16:21:35 ] [innocent alt] > lol ok
[ 2011.08.05 16:21:37 ] SevenLZ > that's the very fastest i can get there

From this information we consulted DotLAN maps and tried to predict that route that he would take. http://evemaps.dotlan.net/route/Malukker:Rens . We also had some neutral eyes on route incase he takes a different route. I had the fleet get into some battlecruisers etc. and log off in warp to Ivar Gate from Meirakulf. We all remained on comms, waiting for the perfect moment. All of this seemed to good to be true. But I had to try 😛 Everyone was asking questions like “How do we know hes not gonna shift the stuff with a alt?”, “What if its a trap?”. I did not hear any of this. I wanted to shoot at that Freighter, even if it means I’m dying.

I continued with some small talk, about the stuff happening in Afghanistan etc. All this to keep him interested and getting that contract completed. Not 🙂

[ 2011.08.05 16:37:48 ] [innocent alt] > Malukker >> Rens (720,000 m³) (Courier)
[ 2011.08.05 16:37:50 ] [innocent alt] > That good?
[ 2011.08.05 16:38:19 ] SevenLZ > works for me, i'll accept on arrival

It was a little while when I saw the contract icon flash on my alt. I tried him to see how much collateral I could get out of him too, but it seemed hed only accept with a collateral of 91mil. Remember, we werent after the ISK as much as after the Freighter kill. After some time my contracts icon on my alt flashed and intel started to report him jumping the Ameinaka gate, in the Providence. Great. He took a route that we did not plan on warped to Odatrik from Ivar. Not to worry. All the guys involved logged back in ASAP and made their way to Frarn -> Rens. We then split up as he could jump into Rens either from Odatrik, or form the next system Abudban. Neutral eyes reported him landing on the Rens gate in Odatrik and the fleet reformed.

It felt like a light year before he uncloaked, when everyone started pushing maximum damage on the Providence.

All I heard on TS was “He is going down like a sack o shit”. This was pretty epic. My first Freighter kill. Even though its not a juicy one carrying capital BPO’s and stuff, it was still pretty epic.

Awesomesauce! Oh yes, the convo on my alt…

[ 2011.08.05 17:13:03 ] SevenLZ > okay…

That was all I got. I tried for some more tears, but nothing 🙂

http://twcs.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=10314295 (The Pod. Yes we did :D)

Its been more than a month since I’ve last had a real ninja kill. You know, the one where I steal some mission runners loots. Then the mission runner gets angry and start shooting at me. Then I swap to my tengu and kill him. Yes one of those kills. I scanned down a Dominix. I sped as fast as possible and grabbed me some Gallentian Mining Lasers. Storyline miners that are worth nothing. I got some NPC aggro, infact all of it and had to bail.

I return and notice the Dominix box me immediately. Hopefully he wants to play. I sure do!

I salvaged practically everything in the room when I decided to Jettison the Storyline miners. Seconds later he loots my can! w00t. I point and web and attempt to kill him in my Worm. When my orca landed I ship scanned and saw lots of armor reps and a MWD. That could spell trouble for me. I did not hesitate to get the Orca in range successfully swap to the Tengu.

He started a convo with me but nothing was said. That was until pieces of his tank started coming off his Dominix.

Downtime ended the conversation. I tried for a last mew moments to get him more mad but failed 😛
