I’ve been running some T5 abyssal for the past few days. I’ve run across the unusual site containing the Triglavian Semiosis Data Vault about 3 times now. The first time was a narrow victory, my Gila limping out with 80% heat on every module. The second was a massive loss, 2.5bil blown away by some poor piloting. The third though was a little unusual.
Now, normally you spawn 120KM away from the massive fleet of Leshak battleships with an exit gate close enough that you can bail out of if you’re not up to the task. I got my first hint that something was up when some Leshak models started peaking into my screen before the jump animation was even complete. When I finally enter the site I find I’m surrounded by big red icons all at 10km from me and my escape at 90km away. I can’t burn away, I’ll get blown out of space as soon as those massive guns can start tracking me. I’m left with only one option, frantically dodge lasers and hope to space god I have enough firepower to kill the neuting ships before my tank fails.
What follows is one of the more heartpounding experiences I’ve had in EVE for a while which is best shown in the video linked below. I felt like this was extra worth sharing because I’m fairly certain you’re not supposed to spawn there.
