Solo WH Chaos

I'd like to start by apologising for such a long time between posts. Real life issues got in the way. Anyway when I've been on I haven't had much chance to create good content posts.

So back to the blog. It started with me the only guy online and scanning down our chains. Our C3 Static had only it's static and It was a High-Sec to the middle of nowhere. I even tried scanning down other holes in the High-Sec but none were present. So I checked our High-Sec static for the same and as luck would have it I found a K162 to a C2 wormhole. I scouted it out and found the occupants to be offline and carebears to boot. So I scanned down the sigs and hit the jackpot, 2 C4 connections 1 C3 connection and 2 High-Sec connection including the one I came in through. It was the C3 that I found some interest in first.

It had a small gate camp on the other side with 2 Sabers and a Loki. So I jumped straight back in the C2 and warped/cloaked up to avoid the quick death. I then proceeded to one of the C4's and found it completely empty. The second C4 had many ships on D-Scan and I tracked down the POS in system and all of them were there except one retreiver. Most of the ships had people in them but were of an industrial nature so I checked the belts and found it. After manoeuvring through the roids I pointed it with my brand new Proteus and lit it up. Well it melted as one would expect and then I managed to lock the pod up after 5-6 seconds. Well AFK pilots don't get ransomed so the pod was popped too.

At this point I noticed that the indy ships in D-Scan were changing to combat ships. So I got out of there as fast as possible having bagged my kill and looted a few mil in skill books and anythign else of value (the corpse). On the other side of their connection I found something that delighted me, Saber Loki Tengu Falcon on D-scan who all quickly cloaked or warped to deep safes as I lost them on D-Scan. My chance for mischief was at hand I warped uncloaked to the C3 at 100KM and then a quick bounce to the High-Sec. It was here I sat for some 3-4 mins until the first of my foes turned up. It was a Crusader and a Harbinger from the C4 at 160KM off the hole. Eventually they warped to me and started to light me up. I waited for my chance and when it presented itself in the way of the crusader being 7km off the hole I scrammed/dual webbed it and popped it in a couple of salvo's. Then I rounded on the harbinger all the while D-Scan was alive with activity.

At nearly the same time the guys from the C3 showed up with their ships and the C4 guys also turned up with more and chaos ensued. Well I continued to shoot at the harbinger while the others hounded on it too. When it jumped I started on a Loki for giggles and avoided a bump from somebody before jumping too.

I opened a conversation with the harbinger pilot and told him what I had done and he got a good laugh but was stuck as they had a Broardsword on the other side now. I had offered to help him get through until he told me this. They were going to take a chance and try to take the hole back so I offered my assistance to the group I had already claimed 2 kills from and brought along a RR ship this time and jumped with them and started firing upon the designated hostiles. Well we took the fight to them and anything that was far enough away warped off and the two ships nearest to the hole jumped through followed closely by myself. I normally find that recently murdered temporary allies don't make the best pilots to casually sit with in hostile space :D.

After I was told by one thanks for my help and he was setting our corp blue. I stopped him and said not too as I'm a Pirate at heart and the more pew pew opportunities out there the better. But if they ever need a hand or a fight to hit me up and I would do my best on either. So more friends were made even if I do wind up murdering/getting murdered by them at some point. But those are the best of friends because you always know where they stand.

Stay tuned for the last month of WH fights, blunders and with luck chaos with a touch of Yaarrrr'ing
