Fresh out of the clone vat, I was back in space looking for trouble. Using the nifty d-scan and system map technique I found Matrim Finard in a Faction Warfare site in Auner. He was in a Stabber. A cruiser that should be better than my rifter, but I had hopes of getting under his guns and being safe from his violence.
I headed to the site, slipped through the gate and found him about 50k away. Usually other frigates flee in this situation, but I was hoping that his cruiser vs. my frigate would give him reason to stay. I overheated everything, used the approved spiraling angled approach to my target, got within 15k without any apparent reaction, and hit the "orbit at 500m" button.
Warp scrambler, active.
Autocannons - Fire!
The stabber was quickly reduced to scrap while I didn't even hit 50% on my shields (and this rifter was an armor rifter - not the shield rifter I had been flying). A glorious victory! \o/
I remembered to loot the wreck this time and headed to a safe spot to wait out the GCC. Looking at the killmail I see that Matrim took every precaution - he was triple tanked - shield, armor, and hull were all protected. I checked and he's a relatively new player - about 3 months old.
And I found this comment in local (in reply to my "gf") to be very revealing:
Matrim Fidard > umm why did that happen?
