Lady Brings the Blues

Crazy people walkin' round with blood in their eyes.
And all she wants to do is dance, dance, dance.
Wild-eyed pistols wavers who ain't afraid to die.
And all she wants to do is dance.
Don Henley - All She Wants To Do Is Dance

I warped into the duel at a hundred kilometers. I chuckled as Mynxee asked if I needed some time to think. Nope, just hoping she burns some cap to get to me.

I set a course for her location and start burning her way the old fashioned way. It takes a few minutes but I eventually see her targeting me. Good, I wait for my overview to display her as 20 kilometers out and cycle every module, kick my microwarp drive on and wait to target her. Just as I hit 12 kilometers I start targeting, it resolves right at 9k and she's webbed, twice. She slows to a crawl as I keep coming in but eventually my speed drops off as well, I start to hammer away at her from 6 kilometers out, well outside the range of my autocannons. I'm going to need all the cap I can muster to get in under her artillery. I begin to take heavy damage to my armor and start to realize this fight isn't going to end well for me. I grin as my ship explodes and offer a good fight.

It really was too.

I've been having alot of fun with the Bastards lately as well. I finally got in on some of the action they've been seeing. We formed up a gang in Evati and warped in on a Huginn, Myrmidon, and a Falcon. I warped in and immediately burned for the Huginn, at thirty two hundred meters a second, it did not take long. I was on him in a moment and applied a web, but the gateguns decided to take my shields down, so I had to warp out. I could hear on voice comms they were having some trouble getting that Huginn as I warped back in. The billboard decided it didn't like me and began flashing with more than advertisments. I once again tackled the Huginn, and called it out in fleet. Another ship came, took over the point, and I got back out again in half armor just as the Huginn figured out I was an actual threat and started firing faction heavy missiles at me.

As I sat in a safe spot, I heard the call: Myrmidon, Myrmidon(Where in the heck did he come from?), Huginn down. Falcon escaped. Nice drops apparently, and a good fight. Wish the Jokers Wild had been more help, but sometimes you don't get what you want. Apparently making the tackle is half the battle with a Huginn, so I'm not to broken up about it.

I should mention that Mynxee actually kicked my ass in a duel twice. The second time I refit a module to try something different and still got the same result, almost exactly. She's pretty good at makin' stuff explode, and I'm still having a blast.

Good day.

  2. ♥ Hal. And both of us all T1 fit, too...those were fun duels. As I mentioned, I've buffed up my shield skills a little bit lately; seems to have helped. Can't discount my funky fit with the targeting inhibitor sporting an optimal range disruptor script either.
