It Ain't Suicide If You Live

Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

One Rifter later... well at least I had fun. I managed to get the rifter pilot to half armor before the rest of the fleet took me down.

Then I used my scanning skills to find a Thorax and Arbitrator. It was a good scan, nice and quick. Apparently though, and don't ask me how, I got to the belt before they did. They dropped out of warp on top of me and I started targeting the Thorax. The rest of our fleet warped my way and it was on. I couldn't understand why I was dying so quickly, and soon it didn't matter.

Luckily the rest of the fleet came in right after I died and started pounding on them. As it turned out the Angel Cartel goons hanging out in the belt realized why the don't like me, and started shooting me down. If not for that I'd have likely survived long enough for the rest of the fleet to come in. Eventually they both died. They even managed to nail down one of the pods.

I had fun even if I lost a couple of cheap ships. We did 20 million in damages and took maybe 250k in hurt. That's what some drones cost.

Good day.
