Well it’s not actually a tale; it is only that the last two BTA fleet ops both had to do something with POS‘. The first one was an op to destroy a POS tower someone forgot to disassemble before leaving the area and the second op was about looking at a POS that got reinforced and hoping for a fight.
In both cases there wasn’t a fight, but we still had a nice time on comms (and I could make a few screenshots).
I was very happy that I could get into another fleet yesterday evening. It was an ACAC fleet and it was the first time I was flying an Omen. We went into low-sec with the fleet and found a fight near Gonditsa where there were two other large fleets battling it out. We first took a peek and saw that they were much stronger than us (they had double the number of Guardians than we had Augurors). There was a vote if we should suicide and it was decided to go for it and so we did.
We died in a blaze of fire, but it was quite a nice fight and an impressive fleet. Especially congrats to our FC and Scouts!! I hope to see another one of these soon (I already just now bought the modules for another Omen) 0:-)
I have been out of the dark EVE Universe for quite some time know and only poked in again yesterday and was quite happy to find me a BTA Frig roam. Here are some screenshots from this Demolition Derby which was mostly a fleet to help train new FCs. For that it was quite nice, as we managed to evade 2 larger fleets in Fountain before suicide in Period Bases.
The TCU in the first pic is a TEST one (guys plz get an alliance logo – those make for much nicer screenshot 0:-) )
In more quiet days than those we are having now, some industries corp mates did set up a huge mining op which was open for all alliance members. Like in all of our mining ops all miners/haulers/booster do get equal shares no matter what ship they are in. This is especially to help pilots new in New Eden who are invited as well even should they just fly a Bantam! The nice part about mining is more the social aspect anyway and the chatter in fleet chat as well as in voice was quite nice too and also a nice opportunity for new members to get to know the other corp mates.
I can only recommend such ops to any corp with industry activities.
I better don’t contemplate too much an all the heat of the above lasers and how dangerous it was for our mining vessels to navigate through all of them!
I wouldn’t like to be one of those roids there …
Our hero hauling Orcas! 🙂
