OK, I'm back from Switzerland and after the two week European hiatus I've returned to Eve.
I've bounced around a bit in my slasher and have had some fights - good and bad.
For instance, this one where I killed a rifter that was sitting in a faction warfare site. As he was going down his buddy in an incursus landed and spewed out his drones. I finished off the rifter and turned my attention to the incursus. That went well and I had him most of the way through armor when HIS buddies arrived (in a catalyst, tormentor and firetail!). I didn't last long against the four of them... But it was a fun fight to almost get the rifter and the incursus.
A day later I was hanging out in a FW plex (the frigate that had been there fled when I arrived) and in dropped a daredevil flown by Spike Lightning of the Rifterlings. I think I've died to Rifterlings in the past on several occasions - but this chance to take on a daredevil mano a mano was fine with me (I've never killed a daredevil). Even though he landed about 40k from me, I headed towards him (fully knowing that I was probably on a death charge). We fought it out and, sure enough, I died. No surprise. He was railgun equipped and that definitely doomed me.
Afterwards we chatted a bit about the fight and Spike noted:
Spike Lightning > BRRC give the best fights
Spike Lightning > and best feedback
Nice! We aim to please.
