1 v 1 - should have been more careful.

I lost my rifter today after agreeing to a 1 v 1 with a pilot who then said 'going to get my destroyer' as he had clocked what I was flying already.

Ten minutes later, he was in a catalyst with 8x 125mm gauss prototypes and the mag stabs to match. Amazingly, I survived the salvo and got him down to 5% armour before I realised that I hadn't even switched on my third autocanon (and yes, it was the T2 one!!!).

I managed to hang on for a few more seconds and kissed his hull before I blew up.
