New Cheetah, Old Cheetah

"But sir, the cloak hasn't been engaged yet...."

"What?"

"We had to drop them to launch a recon probe and you didn't give the order to engage the cloak sir!"

"Wha?"

The harbinger lit up on my overview, the white brackets flashing orange as the pilot started to lock me.

"Raise the cloaking device! Raise the cloaking device you fools!" With me being the biggest fool of them all.

The harbinger flashed red as his pulse lasers taught me the error of my ways.

"Oh shi -"

And so, the shake down cruise in my new cheetah ended rather abruptly. I warped to a gate (uncloaked), intent on using my new found ninja skills but my wonderful red flashy status allowed anyone with brains an opportunity to destroy me. One volley later and I was fleeing back with my tails between my legs.

Well, it's nice to be back.

WTB: New, rigged cheetah please.

LOL those fools!

Talk some sense into them Flash so that they know to pull up the cloak ASAP ;)

I love those 'Oh shi-' moments! Welcome back from your break FF. Haven't seen you around Evati - a week is a long time in EVE.

WTB Harbinger with the fitting to fit BS sized turrets!

To be honest, I'd shoot a nonblinky covops dropping probes on a gate. Lesson learned.

To be completely honest, Sard, you'd likely shoot anything. Blinky, non-blinky, covops, titan, they're all targets of opportunity, eh?

WTS Flash: Cheetah with rigs and a crew with some sense; come on T3!

@Kename: if it's a good opportunity, why say no?

Station grog, it's a killer - or for that matter any grog whilst piloting.

Hope to see y'all tomorrow, believe it or not my week off work has been busier than a week working o.o
