You think I can just warp in at range and pop him with a target painter tornado in one volley?

The Tengu EHP would be a little over 21k if he’s got good skills, or 18k if considering pure EM damage into his resist hole. The volley of a tornado is a little short of 10k, so no, you won’t be able to pop him in one volley.

Anyway, context?

Can you bring multiple people? Is it a suicide gank? Can you light a covops cyno on him? Is he behind an acceleration gate and paying attention to local chat, his d-scan and his combat probe results?

It’s high-sec and it won’t be a suicide gank because he will be yellow blinky. I think I can legally engage, but I won’t be able to dock up, right? So it needs to be cheap.

Also, for the sake of it, lets assume he has seen this thread and will come back with a new fit. So it might be a more prolonged fight. All his fights are solo but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have alts. He seems like an experienced hunter/baiter even though he has only been doing it for a couple of months.

Also we can assume perfect skills. The fact he uses a T2 powergrid rig shows he is not perfect skilled, but i bet all his combat skills are in the right place.

Easiest way I guess is to bring corp members to gang up on him.

Okay we’ll mine him to death with our mining drones. ty.

I was more thinking of bringing combat ships, but I guess a bunch of Procurers could work too if you bring enough of them.

What if I baited him in lowsec. Would I be able to keep him perma-tanked and web/scram until someone shows up to kill us both? I could use webbing drones to diminish his AB superiority and just keep pulling the drones until someone shows up to kill us both.

With a cheap moa, I mean. I only need one gun to pretend i’m ratting.

If you get for example a Keres with AB or MWD, warp disruptor and three targeting range dampeners, you would be able to go faster than him, while keeping him warp disrupted from outside his targeting range due to your targeting range dampeners.

He wouldn’t be able to fight back or warp off, until someone else intervenes.

Then get some friends to finish the job.

That keres is pretty cheap. If i kept him webbed and scrammed in high-sec with that, would i get concorded when the timer runs out and he can’t do aggressive acts on me?

I have no experience with those silly high sec rules so I cannot tell.

It’s an interesting idea. For all fights really. I could run a tackle boat anywhere and just wait for roaming gangs to show up and kill us both. Might be a nice way to pad the KB.

If I use weapons, it could even be legit.

Okay thanks for your input, I figured out my strategy now. And it’s got nothing to do with anything mentioned in this thread. But it helped me come up with my super secret strat so thanks.

He is at +8 GJ cap wise, 600dps and 550ish EM tank

So you will need something that can tank 600, and do above 700 dps OR something that can tank 600 and neut above 11GJ. One Medium neut will do, more neuts are better to finish the job faster.

For the love of my OCD, please fit ballistic controls in the lows, not magstabs. Magstabs are for railguns or blasters.
Ballistic controls are for the HAM launchers.

Oh and you probably have to shoot twice. If he has the modules on at the time, it could be too much for one volley.

He’s not at 600 dps. That was my mistake. I put the wrong damage mods on the fit I posted. He has BCS.

He’s at 850.

Now it’s tight.

I just addressed that. And you’re right, I was overconfident cause I thought he was only pushing 600. He’s pushing 850 kinetic, and 700 everywhere else. With rage. And with my size and strategy. I’m gonna feel it all.

Reactive armor hardener would do fine vs a single damage type, so I wouldn’t worry about the tank.

Any armor drone boat with some neuts would do. This thing tanks 1000+ vs single damage type in full t2 fit with no imps. Just recycle small neuts to keep him completely dry and he wont even use AB or invuls.

I.e.

I have some pretty hardcore friends who want to back me up if things go awry but I don’t want their help. I want to do this by myself.

I was planning on using the neut strategy. But even if I shut him down. Thats still a good wedge of tank I have to burn through. And only a limited amount of cap to do it with.
