I was hanging out at a safe spot in Ishomilken while one of my alts was scanning down radar sites in a distant backwater system. I would check back every once in a while to see if there was anything Jack needed to deal with in a decisive manner.

[01:37:22] Merry Westminster > yo, BRRC guy, 1v1 or no?
[01:38:25] Merry Westminster > if so, I'm waiting 70 kms off of planet 7
I alertly noticed that there were two pilots in the system with me and they were both in the same corp. Hmmm... One in a Thorax and the other not on d-scan. That might mean trouble in a variety of ways...
[01:39:58] Jack Dancer > Sorry, I have a bit of a sinus headache...
[01:40:27] Jack Dancer > Maybe if there were just one of you... And it probably won't be much of a fight against my little rifter. So not worth your time really.
[01:41:17] Merry Westminster > mmk o7
[01:41:53] Jack Dancer > Stop back sometime when you're on your own and I'd happily sacrifice a rifter for the sport.
[01:42:19] Merry Westminster > :)
[01:42:31] Merry Westminster > we can do a true 1v1 if you want
[01:42:43] Merry Westminster > one will fight
[01:42:47] Merry Westminster > other will not
[01:43:08] Jack Dancer > I'd just as soon have the other somewhere else in that case. Nothing personal.
[01:43:37] the101ace > ok
[01:43:38] Merry Westminster > my friend is leaving to Uuna atm
[01:44:08] Merry Westminster > gone
[01:44:15] Merry Westminster > still a no?
[01:44:31] Jack Dancer > On my way.
We had a fight.
Well, sorta. Merry Westminster immediately tossed out 5 Vespa EC-600 drones. Great. Nothing a bare knuckle Black Rebel brawler like me enjoys more than seeing someone immediately toss out ecm drones... Yech! I gritted my teeth and calmly targeted the drones and started knocking them off one by one. In the meantime I set a 500m orbit around the Thorax and was very happy not to start hearing sirens and warning alarms. In fact, I wasn't getting hit at all! The Thorax had Heavy Electron Blaser IIs and the combat log reads a series of:
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:15 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:17 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:19 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:21 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:23 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:24 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
[ 2012.04.28 01:46:26 ] (combat) Merry Westminster (Heavy Electron Blaster II) misses you
You get the idea.
Nice! I had three of the ecm drones destroyed and was turning my thoughts to the Thorax when his ecm drones broke my target lock and he warped off. No surprise.
[01:46:59] Merry Westminster > gf, you won
[01:47:04] Merry Westminster > put that one down :)
[01:47:29] Jack Dancer > Fair enough. I'll add it to the blog.
[01:47:50] Merry Westminster > thx for the "fight" 07
[01:48:08] Jack Dancer > lol You too. Stop back in a frigate sometime and we can have a rematch.
[01:48:13] Merry Westminster > yeah man :)
[01:48:19] Jack Dancer > Or in the cruiser. That's fine too.
So a "win" for the "Death to Flying Things" campaign. It would have been more interesting if I had managed to keep hold of the Thorax and finished off those darn drones...
