Killing that vexor.

Markoh was a vexor pilot. He was ratting in Eifer when I found him in my rifter. The first time, I locked him he was out of the belt and in a safe before I could complete my lock. The second time, same belt. I tackled him and was bracing myself for drones when he warped out. Damn, he was stabbed up. I waited until my GCC was gone then fitted x2 20km disruptors and a mwd. I had a nos in the high and knew that cap management would be crucial in the fight. In a T1 rifter with definite cap problems tackling a vexor would be a challenge. I had more experience but a vexor normally eats any frigate for a snack.

I waited for my GCC to expire and refitted the x2 20km disruptors. Cap hungry devices and it is nor recommended that you fit even one let alone two onto a frigate. Oh well, needs must.

The pilot was moving between the three belts in the V cluster. He was back there again, ratting. Hasn't he learnt his lesson? I thought. I adjusted the scanner to give me the best resolution and pinned him down to V-3. I had to be sure and panned the scanner around to make sure he was not above or below the beacon for V-3. Indeed, he wasn't and I warped into the belt.

You know the feeling when the GUI takes a second or so longer to load? You know it's slowed down by the extra information it will be presenting to you. Such joy; I thought. Such joy. I landed and yes, there was the vexor. I hit both warp disruptors on and had 2points on him from 20-odd km away. A minute or so later, the vexor was a wreck with the bloodied, frozen remains of the pilot in my cargo hold.

Love it.

/me scratches head. Great story, as always, but you said you were in a Rifter. KM shows Jaguar?

Either way, no matter, love your stories :)

Aha. You're right. I was in a Jag (peers closely at the KM) - my bad. Glad you liked the story, your Blog is good too. Nice to see what MC are doing from a soldiers point of view.
