Mealstrom Madness and Sexy Loot

Ok so not much has been happening over the last couple of days. Works picked up and such and the website is starting to take some basic form \o/
But back to what this post is really about!

So recruitment is going well and we've had some quality pilots join up and participation is excellent on there part. So last night we had another chap wanting to join and he wanted to fly with us for abit before joining to see if we got on as a whole. So we took out a BC shield gang last night. 2 Drakes a Myrm, 2 Basilisk's and my trusty Hurricane! So we form up and make our way to Arzanni the final highsec before lowsec near Querious. 2 jumps in while waiting on gate for our scout ( A drake lol ) To check next system. When gate fires and a Mealstrom jumps through. He starts motoring back to the gate. I get the feeling it's a bit of bait so I have the drake jump in. As soon as he calls local clear and before I can even order to engage our Myrm pilot scrams/webs the mealstrom and starts hacking away. At which point guns free is called and the carnage begins! Mealstrom aggres's our Myrm pilot but the basi's are on top form and easily keep up with the damage. Maelstrom pilot deaggress's at 10% armor we spank the overheat button and very soon he goes pop! Despite his best efforts and his ship going boom the dude takes it lightly in local and gf's are exchanged!

So we continue on and get into Clani we're waiting on gate and as our scout jumps into Gehi someone jumps into us! And wallah it's the mealstrom pilot.. Again! He holds session timer and he's in another mealstrom. Now not ones to let a fellow pilot warp off in such a expensive ship. He's pointed and everyone starts laying into him he aggros and fleet decides fuck it. If it's bait it's dieing before we do! But this time round his ship has a monster tank! You'll see why in a minute =]

So we're bashing away he's at about 50% shields and a falcon decloaks as soon as I've called falcon primary Myrm drops his sentrys onto the falcon and half the fleet points him. His shields vanish and is put into armor as I get jammed. One of our basi's gets jammed but alas he fails to jam me again and when I get lock I managed to get 2 volleys off before he explodes. Quick decision by the Myrm pilot really made that easier then it shoulda been! Cyan in the myrm decides the falcon pilot fails. And pops his pod too =]

We switch back to the Mealstrom who at this point has clawed back some shields. Everyone overheats and then the myrm burns out his guns lol After what seem's like forever we finally get him into structure and he makes a extremely satisfying BOOM! All over the stargate. Pro Logi support during that fight made everyones lives easier and everyone worked well and did everything spot on. In truth with the kinda tank that meal had we'd have probably had to deaggro or died lol

2 Proteus land on gate and we decide that we should bug out just incase. As everyones drones had been dieing to sentry gun fire =[ And half our guns were damaged! We scoop loot and warp to safes. When it dawns on us that the guy was pretty much fully faction fit!

Republic fleet gyros! Dread Guristas Warp Disruptor! DG Shield Boost Amps ect! Quite abit dropped aswell =]  Worked out just over 500m Loss but our killboards not updating faction Items right o.0
 Good fights are exchanged in local and props to the guy for having such a mean tank! Now we know why lol! We made 244m just from the faction loot lol. Which was split between the fleet =] Happy days.

Winding down the roam we decided to pop into A2- in querious nothing much happened except a bait drake tryed to kill our gang but there fleet jumped to early so everyone bugged out much to the bemusement of Cyan who gladly stayed to make sure we got away safely by trying to take down the drake while being jammed to hell/bubbled/nueted ect lol <3

All in all was a great welcome to our new pilots! And we hope we get some more friends to fly with in the future!

Quiet Times and Outer Ring Woopsy's.

So blog's been quiet for a couple of days. Partially because ive been ropped into building our new website and doing the majority of the graphical design for the time being till Tali get's off his arse and gives me a hand ;)
Fiction is currently on hold untill the sites finished so i'll have a couple post's going up after it's done.

On a brighter and not so brighter note. We've still been out roaming about however the last couple of times there were a few mistakes that cost us alot of ships. First up was a bait scimitar but by the time people had realised it was too late and we lost a falcon/claymore. And another guy just before lost his Pilgrim because he didnt hold session timer instead cloaked up and got decloaked immediatly by drones.

After that mishap we took some RR and did abit of isk grinding replaced the lost ships and decided we'd go on a bomber run. So myself, Tali and Counter took a couple bombers and went roaming down through syndicate. It was relativly quiet to say the least. No camps. No bubbles. No travellers. Nothing not a soul. Atleast till we reached MN-.

We spotted about for abit and decided to cloak up on the opposite side of the gate. Shortly there after a Exequror jumped through the gate and Tali missed tackle.. Everyone had tackle but him.. FML. We chased him down and caught him in the next system. 2 Volleys of torps later he went Kabloom!

( For some reason blogspot is now stuck on italic.. apologies. )
Nothing else much eventful happened for the next hour. . Failed to tackle the same drake 5 times in the same belt.. Got him into structure on the 5th try but he MWD'ed out of point range while i was burning to him and warped off. It was hilarious and his corpse will be ours soon enough. The roam was made awesome though by counter, I was tired and couldnt be arsed to FC. So we went with a themed roam. Sex Hotline. So for the duration of the roam Counter FC'ed in such a way.. That it had me and tali in fits for half the trip. His impression of a sexhotline girl/man/thing was so convincing Tali was starting to get worried that Counter had been the lass/man/thing he'd spoke to the previous night lol.

Anyway during the close of the roam around 4am my time. Counter warped to a very far off grid cyno only to be caught in a bubble and have his bomber popped. Not cool =[

Tomorrow however! We reship and re-fuck shit up.

Btw Serenity Rising is recruiting. So hit up Silent Sarrow or Randunip ingame if you fancy some nullsec roams and plenty of hilarity!

M-M gets a visit from SR.

So with the highsec war not exactly being as fruitful as we'd hoped due to timing and low participation round peak for the otherside... We decided to instead of camping stations or being camped in stations we'd roll on to Wildlands and poke the locals.

We pulled together a fast and extremely deadly fleet. 2 Vaga's, Falcon, Rapier, Curse, Pilgrim. We fast rolled through the lowsec's prior to the nullsec entrance. We moved out of Egbinger the final lowsec and moved down the pipe towards M-MD38, Nothing was around to shoot at till we hit the M-M gate and ended up missing a hurricane by literally a couple seconds. We had the Rapier go in and scout 1 belt system and theres a drake ratting.. Fail. Rapier gets a tackle we warp in drake warps off.. Bigger fail =[

Warp stabbed o.0.

We make a couple of safes around the system and keep hunting. Nothing fights us for alittle bit till we decide to start harrasing them in local. Finally we warp to station undock and camp it down. When a rupture warps in at range to station. But in range of the 2 Vagabonds. Within a couple of seconds Im looting his wreck. Poor sod even lose's his pod hehe. Then a couple of drakes and a brutix and a myrm undocks.  Brutix is called primary and we burn him down fairly quick after a few seconds he goes Kabloom! Next up is a Drake, In the middle of shooting him a bomber appears and I start yelling PRIMARY HIZ ARSE! 2 Seconds later.. He is no more. By this time the drakes bleeding armor and as he goes pop several other drakes undock and a hurricane. We start working on the myrm but we're taking loss's now curse and pilgrim go pop. . Unsure how the curse died.. He should have been at range but meh =]  The calls made to bug out as the myrm hits structure but despite our efforts apparently he never popped o.0 Was a extremely fun fight even though we were out numbered 2-1!

There was a massive fail by one of our Vaga pilot's and FC.. Who made a suicide run to try and snipe a flycatcher he landed in his bubble burned out and in the warp process got tackled by a drake.. And he went boom. Opps!

Morale of this story is - Dont bite off more then you can chew or something like that =]

Till next time!

P.s my Vaga survives another roam <3

Roam to Catch and Querious - Hilarity Ensue's!

Ok so we're mid-roam taking a tea break after what has been the funniest roam to date.

We started off from our highsec base and made way to Keberez the system before HED- , 2 lowsec between our home and destination. Scout roll's ahead and checks it out, Apparently there's a Blackbird, Geddon and a Hurricane on the out gate to the 2nd lowsec system at 0m. We decide to bait them when all of a sudden a Nighthawk lands with them and jumps through. Scout jumps after and relays they engaged the nighthawk. After a quick decision we decide to come to the rescue of the Nighthawk pilot and thwart the evil doer's! Fleet lands on gate and engages the GCC guys on gate. Primarys called on the hurricane and he drops like a sack of bricks under the combined fire of our fleet. Next up is the geddon who tryed to warp off but I haz point on him and he is like aww shits. I decide that blackbird should not be allowed to live and take on the wrath of the gate guns in order to destroy his ship.. He goes pop as I dance around his wreck in my hurricane. I switch targets to the geddon he de-agress's and trys to make it back through the gate fleet overheats everything and burns down his last chunk of armor and he explodes into shiny pieces.

We wave the nighthawk pilot on who is extremely thankful for our efforts and we make some new friends! Infinite Covenant - Fly safer next time dudes!
Anyway after that little throwdown we roll to HED- and it's camped to high hell so we decide next stop.. QUERIOUS! Rolling through the 2 lowsecs we land on the A2- gate and jump in after a Typhoon who manage's to get out of the bubbles we dropped and warp off.. FML =[

I get bored and we decide to warp and bubble the station undock then someone gets stuck on gate and we lose a blackbird. Lol woops. We run around abit and get no fights =[ 
We warp back to the lowsec after being chased by a 50 man drake gang and an incursus pops into Kaira and I end up getting itchy and pop him.. GCC occurs and I warp off as Fran pods him. Win.

GCC dies out and we move into Ashmarir and try and get a Geddon, Drake and Hurricane to engage us on gate.. They wont =[ Then suddenly a claymore appears with GCC so we decide to engage that at 40% shields local bumps by 50 and incomes the drake gang. Pro jams from our falcon pilot gets all but 2 of our fleet members out. Then the best thing ever happens.. Im aligned to the highsec gate waiting session aggro timer. When call comes in that a 70 man fleet is about to jump into the 50 man fleet. We decide to whore killmails and warp to the gate only to see the other fleet warping off or jumping out. On comms all I hear is 2 BC's in highsec with GCC quick whore the mails!!!!!  I jump out to see in highsec 2 of the guys from the 50 man fleet 12km off gate with GCC! Concord appears and me and Counter through tears of laughter point both ships and start laying into them. Pop goes the drake. And the hurricane died way before we got load our guns!

So for a couple loss's we end up with some brilliant kills and the funniest moment ever in eve. And some new friends <3

Time to continue the roam so will drop another post if anything fun happens!

Fly safe

P.s Thanks to Keeno B, Who without we probably wouldnt have got the geddon and such to engage! :D

Lowsec roam and Cruiser fun in Catch!

First thing's first.

Last night was awesome fun. Really was hilarious. We started off with 4 cruisers and took a roam through Perbhe all the way down to Arazanni ( Highsec ) Tali was fc'ing but no one to fight apart from two blobs of about 20 Bc's and a 2nd blob of 20 bs's with logi. Shame.. and we lost a Omen coming through due to epic panic lol.

While waiting for him to reship me and Tali were poking around dotlan to see where we could go next. And I spotted 1 jump from us the system HED-GP owned by AAA. And we figured why not we'd get a fight thats for sure. So when Zam arrived in his Retribution and Sami in his Omen. We set off to HED- with a Caracal, Rupture, Omen, Stabber and a Retribution.  I took lead of FC as Tali wanted to see how it was done.

We reached gate and had Zam jump in to scout on the other side was a hurricane, 2 vaga's a vexor and a claw. There was a thrasher but he warped off. We told Z to engage them or atleast have them agress all we got was "burning back to gate" apparently they had shot him but he neglected to tell us.
So I had fleet jump in and hold cloak while I decided on primary. We, thinking we'd all die in a fast fire chose the closest vagabond figured we'd kill the most expensive thing on the field. The vaga ran away at 2 thirds shields as My shield buckled under the combined fire. We switched primary to the Claw and very shortly after he went Pop. Next target was the vexor and surprisngly he went down faster then the claw. By this time my armor had buckled and structure bled out very quickly and I was soon sat in my pod. I was at 0m on the gate but couldnt jump so I warped off to a planet. Counter took over target calling and the we managed to snag the hurricane aswell! Then the choice was made to GTFO. And everyone deaggressed tanked the vaga's and jumped through. Some with aggro timer got stuck and we lost the caracal and rupture ontop of my stabber.

So for the loss of 3 cruisers. We killed a Interceptor and Cruiser and a Battlecruiser. Tit for Tat but way up on isk destroyed. So a major win on our part.

Glad the guys gave us a good fight! Although the ships fittings left something to be desired.
Shortly after Tali had a convo from the fleets FC. They wanted us to join there alliance! We kindly declined and tryed working out standings so we could roam CVA space unhindered. Although I went to bed when he was doing that so I wont know till the morning!
All in all very fun fight and hopefully more to come! Here's to the new corporation! Btw yes i've changed corps and am now the proud leader of Serenity Rising.
