And an uber lame kill it was. I realise targeting things that can’t do jack shit about it is the ultimate of cheap and lame, but do I actually have to care? I think not. I worked for that kill. You think a Venture just flies in front of you asking to be shot? Nono, I had to actually search system after system to find a clueless person mining in low-sec.
And to make matters even worse, as it looks like on the killboard and stuff, the capsuleer I killed was a new player (or alt character?). I just shot a newbie in the head. Pewpew, die newbie. Seriously, why was he mining in a low-sec area in the first place? The loot I got is obviously a big giggle.
So there you have it. The very first blood on my hands. And it’s dirty blood. The stench of innocence is all over it. The road to the dark side has been set forth. Lucky for me, nobody can here you when you scream in outer space. So I guess that dude was just shit out of luck.
Truth be told, I’m getting quite good at dodging other players that are flying superior firepower. Seems like every time people see an Atron pop up in local they go killing frenzy on my ass. The fast and agile Atron really shines for out running / warping this. But I’m not planning on sitting in an Atron for much longer. But more on that for tomorrows blog post.
