You come home late from work, kick off your boots and get some tea water boiling. In the meantime your computer, of course already turned on, is quietely humming away while discord is filling up with fellow corpmates on comms, bantering, pvping, mining and huffing gas. Without much thought you click the agency pop up away, undock in an Orca and get some laid back mining going, cup of tea in your hand, grateful that the workday is over and you can relax a little before heading out on a corproam or strat op for some more adrenaline focused gameplay. You step away from the computer to get a another cup of tea, clean the dishes, do some chores while your Mining Drone II’s stack Veldspar into your Ore hold.
As you come back your tanked Orca is in 20% structure. Two diamond Kestrels got you tackled with a wing of Caracals, a Blackbird and Osprey having a go at you. Your light drones barely making a dent in the Kestrels as you watch your Orca go up in flames followed by a desperate outcry on comms “lol I just lost my Orca” and the subsequent reply “lol get rekt”.
Little did the Guristas know you have a ship set up to take a FOB down, payback. You grind the FOB down to 10% structure as a NPC Hauler undocks from it. Yes… undocks. He looks at you, you look at him, he looks at you and you look at him and you get vollied by the reinforcement wave called in by the hauler right ontop of you.
The FOB has claimed another victim and within one evening you have welped over 2bil.
Welp, guess I am gonna roam for a little…
My fault for going AFK in an Orca
My fault for not checking agency for FOBs
My fault for not understandings FOB mechanics properly.
Discuess : FOB mechanics. Bullsh*t or necessary ?
