Tipa Riot, the final assault on the Myrm took from 09:06 to 09:47 EVE time, so 37 minutes. But the whole battle took just about 10 hours. I had to wear him down morally and trick him into believing I left, in order to get him to go AFK and leave only one armor repper on and the adaptive hardener. And yes, if this happened to me early in the game, I would have been excited too, because it shows that battles can be close and necessitate action and active game-play from the player, and it’s not just click-point-shoot and also that the tide of the battle can change, not all is clear from the start. Again, I am really sorry he decided to quit and I hope I will see him come back and see some kills on his zkillboard page. He fought valiantly and showed potential.
You had the patience to stalk him 10 hours??
Yes. (I know this answer will haunt at least half of the capsuleers that will read it). But I must admit, I was semi-afk for most of it.
You, sir, are a true EvE Nerd.
I rip the “eve nerd” insignia off of my EvE-themed gaming jacket and throw it to the floor. I then bend the knee before you and offer you my gaming mouse. I am not worthy.
This is pure EvE @Adrian_Vexier. I salute you!
Awww… what a little insecure, self padding carebear. So you baited me into baiting you. That must a new type of Eve game-play. And I got out of shape in private convo? Care to expand on that, or are you just here to throw shallow and unsubstantiated attacks?
As for the fit, go ahead and share it, it’s all you will ever be able to do relating me in the game, as you will never have the courage nor the valor to PvP me.
I accept your surrender.
Not a surrender, anyone can scan a ship sitting there in space. But few people can be as smug, low and unworthy as you, as to try to make a profit off it.
Next time, accept my challenge!
I bend my knee with you, I take the mouse, I grab you by the shoulders, I raise you up, I look into your eyes and with a lump in my throat and raspy voice, barely controlling my emotions, I utter the words: “You are worthy! And I am honored to accept your gaming mouse!”
Stay safe and fly dangerous!
Doesnt that title belong to these mad guys: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014/05/14/eve-online-diary-titan-hunters/ ? Stalking prey for 3 years…
It is simply a “pimped” passive shield tank.
We were doing that with Drakes and Myrmidons back in the day. Maybe even the odd Dominix if someone was feeling cheeky.
Something fishy is going on here. Are you making alts and killing them?
Like how are you killing Myrmidons and Dominixes (pluralisation?) with 3+3 lights? That Domi has hobgob IIs and 10 hornets in its bay. How could you outdrone that? Can you recall and relaunch fast enough, and can’t they also hastle your ship with heavier drones while this light drone tit-for-tat is going on. I’m am confusion!
And what is with the Narbinger? It’s just pure ALOD bait. Beams, Pulses, Arty, Autos and two railguns (no blasters in the hangar?). Mix in invul with no booster, hull repper, some plates and some drone mods (but only salvage drones) and make sure not to fit any rigs. Leave to bake for 30 minutes and…bingo!?
I just don’t get it.
Put the fit into simulation and you get that none of the ships in question had the DPS to kill the Nereus. Also I assume the fights were quite long.
He explained how he killed at least one of the myrms.
Concord makes for some mighty strong drones.
Like half the thing with bait nereus kills is that the kind of people who engage them are also usually the kind of people who have no idea how to fit or fight.
This thread is kind of weird in an everything-old-becomes-new-again sort of way.
Can confirm CONCORD is a great gang to roam with in hisec.
Ah, I saw ‘solo kill’ and was under the impression that zkill didn’t show kills to concord. My mistake.
That poor bugger’s too
That Narby is 100% lolmail though. I don’t know if there’s some story behind it. Are ALODs still going somewhere?
Of course you can. You wouldn’t undock if there was no CONCORD and you’d never enter warp without it holding your hand. We all know what a cowardly little high-sec carebear you are.
I explained the Myrm kill earlyer in this thread. The Domi kill was a CONCORD mistake on his behalf, it was during the Praxis battle. He must have gotten desperate to save his alt/ friend Praxis and made a wrong move. As a general rule: almost none of these kills are easy and almost all of them take longer than 30 minutes. Yes, there is a lot of drone attacking and withdrawing involved. And no, they are certainly not my alts. Check their age, some of them are way older than me in the game and have zkillboard histories of themselves.
And in case this word explanation is lacking, here are some recordings:
