It was just another Saturday night and we were rolling holes in our current C3 connection because it resembled Swiss cheese and we wanted to run some sites. After successfully rolling 4 X702's (K-Space to C3) we had just 1 more to do. All was going smoothly until I jumped in my raven light and the hole collapsed behind me leaving me stranded deep in goon space with too many jumps to count to High-Sec.
We had discussed this possibility when making our Corp Raven fit for C3 running and as a result I had a Mobile Depo, probe launcher and probes. So after a quick refit I was ready to try and scan my way out of hostile space instead of almost certain doom. after 4 systems I finally found a connection to a class 3 which made all the class 3's we had been running look sparse. Sadly I scanned my way around and found a wondering connection to a class 2. The class 2 led me to another class 2 which had active members who launched combat probes within 30 seconds of me appearing in system. Well the race was on I scanned its static C2 down warped to 0 and jumped straight through.
Bob was with me this day and I cross jumped the Saber that was set to catch me and managed to drop probes once again and warp off before I got pinned down. Combat probes were soon in system and I warped to the first wormhole at 100km I found which was the C4 static it had. as I warped off as a Buzzard declaoked 10km off me. After 5 mins of constant warping I managed to track down the High-Sec. I warped at range and sure enough there was my friend the Saber. So I warped back to the C4 at 50km this time and had him land at 100km, 50km away. I aligned back out to the HS static and managed to warp before he burnt the distance towards me.
I landed at 0 on the High-Sec hole and hoping it wasn't an Island I sat there. I had been pursued for near on 10 mins total and wanted a chance to actually fire some shots back. First up to land on me amazingly was the Buzzard. Who in a ballsy move De-cloaked and scrammed me. I dorpped drones and launched a wave of rapid lights soon as I acquired target. he dropped almost instantly into deep structure and jumped b4 a second volley launched. Next up was the Saber Landing as the Buzzard jumped. Repeated the process except he took a few volleys before jumping too. Finally the cavalry landed. A single Proteus and 2 T1 cruisers. Had I realised this was all I was being persued with I'd have hdd it out 100 off a hole instead of at 0.
I tried to burn out but with my AB on was moving at a nice steady 45MS with all the webs on me. So I started on the T1 Cruisers. First 1 took all of a reload to force to jump. The second wasn't quite as tanked and I was chewing at its structure before it was suddenly a 1v1. These Ravens we devised were indeed amazing. The Dual ASB and resists could tank what I was taking from these lads. Well The Proteus was a nice mix of tank and DPS and I wasn't forcing him off field anytime soon. I switched to EM missiles as he clearly had filled his explosive hole right up. My damage increased but not enough for a quick victory. soon both ASB's were reloading and my armor started chewing down. The first ASB reloaded after my first hit of structure. And again I was back on top. Finally after what seemed forever the Proteus jumped too.
Having had an amazing fight and driving off a great 5v1 I jumped through myself to find 4 very sad looking burning ships and 1 unaccounted for buzzard. I set destination for our home connection which was 30 jumps away gave a gf in local which was ignored and started the long journey home. Although it was quite a bit closer and safer then the trip I would have had to have made without scanning down some new chain :D
