Quad stabbed Drake!

Aeschee provides relative safety for the selection of pirates and thieves residing there. Despite their different backgrounds, corporations or even beliefs an unspoken non-aggression pact exists here.

Occasionally an outsider passes through but it is unusual for them to stay long, or at least stay alive long.

But every once and a while a brave, deluded soul believes that the riches of low security space are to be shared by all.


Celina's Drake was easily found using scan probe technology. Catching him wasn't hard either, keeping hold of him turned out to be the tricky part.

After escaping the clutches of my duel-scram tackler the first time an alternative strategy was required.

Patience and determination paid off when the Battlecruiser pilot, eager to finish his mission, made his final mistake.

Four scramblers are enough to disable even the most stabilised of warp-cores.

The stunned victim was quickly overpowered by two frigates and the destruction of the coward ever sweeter knowing his 4 warp-stabs did not guarantee safety.

Blogbanter #54: Heroes


Early 2007 I ran into a Shae Tian. She seemed to be pretty popular in local and I wanted to find out why.

A little research led me to her blog and through the blog-pack others as well. Before long I had started my own blog and started the CDM series, picking fights with as many EVE celebrities whom would accept my challenge.

My heroes where The Bastards and Hellcats, their blogs telling the mighty tales of combat and destruction. Flash allowed me to fly with them after I beat him in a fight and before long I donned the skull and rapier logo on my flight suit.

I flew with the guys I looked up to and have fought other EVE legends over the course of the years. Some have gone but some remain.

Those I look up to, my heroes, are still those that stand out from the crowd. Those few that are exceptionally good or make the EVE community as special and unique as it is.

Maybe it is time I look them up and re-start Celebrity Death Match...

Battle of the Nuet-Tristans

With Rixx's latest project in full swing I feel honored to be included in this sexy collectors card series.

Living just a few doors down from Rixx for the moment and with him online it seemed like a good time to go and visit him for some pew. Running a few systems past Hevrice to go and meet him was risky, I didnt want to lose the only frigate I have around here on the way before I even got to his location.

On arrival I demanded to see him in person for honorable frigate pewpew but it appeared one of the locals got him just as I arrived, exploding his Atron. Rixx Javix lives in Hevrice just a few jumps back so I decided to hold here and wait for him to return. Rixx briefly introduced me to his crew who seemed eager to watch me explode. Running around celestials avoiding them and chatting at the same time was a bad idea and before long Joffy, one of his corp's better pilots snagged my Merlin and made short work of it.

Damn that little shit, I'll come back for him some time soon.

Hevrice seemed to be the only system around here with a good selection of ships and items so it made sence to just meet up with Mr Javix there. Browsing the market quickly and checking what was available a descision needed making on what ship and what fittings to use. With Rixx's last frigate being an Atron I guessed he would fly something same or similar and chose a Nuet Tristan as weapon of choice. Keeping Rixx waiting for long enough he offered to meet me in a local small plex before GL's where exchanged.

Rixx has beaten me before in some weird and wonderful fits so this was sure to be interesting. The Nuet Tristan is a good brawler, especially agains ships reliant on capacitor for tank or weaponry but is vulnerable to kiting. D-scan revealed Rixx too was flying a Tristan and I have encountered some kiting Tristans this week...this could go badly wrong very quickly.

Activating the gate my heart started racing, overheat everything, concentrate... slowing down...he is 40 off...30...11....5...YES! thank fuck he is not going to kite me! locklocklocklock...  Bam! the battle was on.

Red streaks of lighting struck both Gallente Frigates, deployed light combat drones ejected from their holds and set to work. My shields melted so fast I barely had time to get the small Ancillary armor repair module switched on in time. My ship was already on fire before Rixx's Tristan lost it's shield capacity.

This was not going well at all, a small amount of my armor came back just in time to stop my ship from erupting into space-dust. WTF is going on?! where is my cap? I am injecting damnit, why isnt my armor repper working?! Another volley from his Warrior drones punched straight through the remaining sliver of armor just before the Ancillary repper activated and kept running properly. My armor shot back up to near full strenght just as his started to give in.

With his repper being reliant on capacitor it wouldnt activate again and his fate was sealed. A bright flash briefly lit up the nearby beacon as Rixx was ejected in his capsule.
