At the end of my AU PvP class roam, I was left with my four fitted T1 frigs in Stacmon. Last night decided to take the first out on a spin in the same area the roam occurred. We were warned at the end of class that Agony roams those areas and will shoot you if they see you....there is no standing gain with AU just for taking the class.
I'm still working on my 'battle reporting' so bear with me.
Headed out of Stacmon and set a course for a random lowsec system four jumps away. In the first lowsec system I got away from the gate and proceeded to make a couple of safespots (SS) and TACs (tactical positions 150km from gates.) I snugged down into a safe and tried my skill at the directional scanner (DS). That was another useful class in the course.
Not having much luck, I hop to the next system. Same drill setting SS, etc. There were people in local, but I didn't actually see any here either. So one more jump. Good news and bad news. I found targets! They had the gate bubbled. Ok....don't panic. I remained cloaked evaluating the situation. There were at least 3-4 targets. Not liking my chances and cloak timer running out, I decide to make a run for the edge of the bubble to see how I could handle myself with whoever chased. They were on me as soon as I started moving....I decided I wasn't going to make out of the bubble so the fight was going to be here. Adjusted my position/movement (shield at 50%) locked a target, and sent some multifrequency love to him. The fight went probably 45 seconds thanks I guess to my speed tank setup. As I started to take structure damage I switched to pod survival. Picked a target and started spamming. Lo and behold it worked! Got my pod out (salvaged a tiny bit of dignity, I guess.)
Bounced around the system in my pod to re-evaluate. Decided that it was best to just charge back to Stacmon. If I make it great. If I don't....well my med clone was there anyway.
The trip back was uneventful. Jumped into an Executioner and decided to roll around hi-sec a bit and work on my DS skills. Found a few miners, but I don't know the exact rules of can-flipping so just tried to make them nervous. No luck. Headed to a Drone Infestation and found someone in a frigate working the site. Stole some of his non-wreck loot from the site and jumped the acc gate into an empty deadspace complex. One more acc gate. A couple of drones floating around, so I thought I'd see if I could tick off the other pilot. I'm not sure exactly what happened, but the other guy warped in and pretty quickly went flashy red. SWEET! I go after him, and got him down to 50% armor when he warps off. Had sensor damps on this frig and couldn't hold him. I spent 10 minutes or so flying around the system trying to see if I could bump into him again. No luck. Headed back to Stacmon.
