I play EBM and industrial while I fly around in EVE. One of my favorite bands is Front Line Assembly, a band I got to see live last night, in the Garage in London. Transparent Species gives me such an eve vibe: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju9qDn3TGJU) when I hear it. And a nice Die Krupps / FLA remix is a great fight song: (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVHOan-gIUw)
Anyway, a few nights ago 20 of us went roaming. Our target: The Test home system. The reason: Its reset time. And That means giving Test a bloody nose in their new home. Welcome to Low Sec, Test alliance!
We were packing kiting shield BC’s, some light tackle and long range webs. A nice combo. I was , as usual, in my Scimitar to provide needed reps. 4 Scimitars in total, so were definitely take-able if a fast reaction fleet appeared.
We dived directly onto their undock to see what we could get. Points were called and…
Everyone docked up. And for twenty minutes we waited.
No reaction, no undocking. no fast reaction fleet. No engagement. We locked down their undock and system for a good period of time, and Test hid.
What did happen was that Test decided to let us know we were “gay” and “faggots” for turnign up for a fight.
- First: We just reset you. And you couldn’t russle up a fleet to come kick our asses? I wouldn’t have minded being blown up by a superior force. I came for a fight, lets have one! How bad is it that in your home system you cant even repel 20 guys from 401k. We are legitimately terrible! Come fight us, and kick us in! That’s where the fun is.
- Second: Homophobia? Really? That shows a severe lack of class. If i want to be called a “faggot” i can kiss another man in the street. But then id get my head kicked in, again. i get enough queer hate in real life. And you think saying it makes you edgy? It just shows a lack of class and juvenility. Bad call.
So, the fleet didn’t get much action, and i left with a bad taste in my mouth. KOTH is coming soon, so that should be hyper fun.
