Last night my pirating netted me my 100th kill. I never thought I'd make it but here we are. All those needless deaths and stupid mistakes but I'm actually managing a 2/1 kill death ratio now which, especially to me, seems amazing - in the truest sense!
Yes, there are some 'easy' pots in there such as the odd cyno and AFK pod on a gate here and there. There are also, however, those glowing embers of campfire tales which I'll remember for a long time such as the Cyclone kill with just two of us in Rifters with that ship having warped in just as we'd killed a Rupture. There is dropping into a system to see a Frigate and Mining Barge on the same belt only to find that the combat ship is there to protect the miner and managing to take out both with half my armour left.
Such is the joy of EvE - so many memories and ways to have fun. You've got to love it.
Just the other night we happened upon a chap by the name of Rixx Javix. He was pottering around in a Vagabond and, with his reputation and ship I'd decided to leave well alone - other than saying 'hello'. Anyway a corpie of mine landed on him and got point - another warped in so I thought I'd have to try and help out. Of course he had some assistance from a Harpy but the fight was over fairly quickly with two Rifters dead and one escapee. The beauty of this though is that it's all good fun and what I find really refreshing is, for the most part, the people that have just killed your ship are usually more than willing to have a friendly chat to discuss fittings and tactics.
Again - you've got to love it.
