As I planned my skills necessary to my desired gameplay, I wondered what to do next in game. No use in getting shot needless, nor was I interested in grinding missions to spend the time. So I took my trustworthy little Atron, and decided now would be a good time to kill an industrial. An unsuspected miner. Or an explorer. I discriminate not.
So I took of to a low-sec system, that was a little out of the way. Map overview told me no ships or pods destroyed in the last 24 hours. Great, for the rookie miner, this would look a great quiet place to mine.
First things first, doing this kind of thing really makes you use the d-scan tool like a pro. And using it like a pro I am dear reader. In the second system I found myself a Retriever on d-scan. Awesome, now came the hard part. Getting on him without alerting him.
I am a complete sucker because I totally forgot to take screenshots during all this. Ah well, next time.
The first approach was very unlucky. Either he was paying serious attention to his overview, or he had some sort of psychic ability, because he took off like a chicken on speed. Smart move. Why would he wait for me to start shooting right? So here I was, sitting in an asteroid-belt, denied of a kill. I considered moving on, but then I had this gut feeling that told me this pilot would be warping back in real soon.
And I didn’t even had to wait long.
As I was sitting silent between a couple of asteroids, he suddenly warped right next to me. At that moment I spoke out loud to my screen, as if he would be able to hear me, what are you doing dude? For real … I locked on to him, switched on my Warp Scrambler, and started poking him with my imba 50 DPS per second.
And then he took off, just like that. Damn those Warp Stabilisors. How am I going to kiel you now?? But it was a fun attempt. Oh, I also had to dodge a Loki and a Tengu during my roaming. Seems I’m not the only one looking for soft targets.
