Just like yesterday, I had Jack minding his own business sitting in a safe spot while using one of my alts to look for valuable cosmic signatures. I was moving probes around, positioning them just right, grumbling when it turned out to be a grav site and elated to find a radar here and there. Every once in a while I'd check on Jack to see if any victims had wandered into Ishomilken.
At one point I'm dancing with some rats at a radar site and trying to keep my lone hobgoblin alive (I'm in a helios with room for just one drone) when I hear explosions. "That's odd," I thought, "Those rats aren't anywhere close enough to be hitting me..."
Jev North in a merlin had found my obviously misnamed "safe spot"...
I switched back to Jack Dancer's screen, targeted and activated all weapons and laid into Jev North as best I could. It didn't go well.
GFs were exchanged in local and I offered a rematch which Mr. North graciously accepted.
It didn't go well either.
I admitted defeat and didn't ask for 3 out of 5... I doubt that I'll loll around in "safe spots" afk much more in the future. Thanks for the lesson Jev!
