Ganked 12 – Rifters – Ganked vs Agony
It’s time for Ganked 12! Rifters are a go! Well, Rifter hulls. This means Wolfs, Jaguars and Frekis (lol) are a go as well!
We’re forming up in Stacmon – we plan to hit Syndicate tonight, but there’s an Agony Unleashed frigate class also departing from here. We’re planning to engage them and see what happens.
I have decided upon a VagaWolf as my ship of choice, with a Rifter as a backup ship for when I die. Tonights naming scheme for the fleet is, oddly enough, “tgl3’s rifter”
The fleet, as usual, is forming up over an hour before the Ganked roam actually starts, resulting in general asshat-ness on comms. Which is fine.
The Agony fleet had already set out but returned after about an hour roaming. Hopefully they’ll head out again as we do.
Eventually 2100 rolls round and we’re off to the nearby lowsec!
A trio of Battleships are waiting for us in a lowsec system off gate, and as we burn to them they, shockingly, engage smartbombs. We’re wise to that though, and hold at range. However, they’ve all fit full warp core stabilsiers and all warp off, without a kill to either side.
Jumping into the Nullsec system of MHC-R3 reveals the Agony gang in system, but also a random Tempest off gate. Our lone interceptor burns for him and the rest of us warp up. Boom. Didn’t kill a soul.
We’re waiting on stragglers before we run at Agony, who have told us they’re at the Sun. Whilst we’re all fielding Rifter hulls and are planning to order targets alphabetically, Mangala informs us that Agony like to call targets separately for each squad. We seem to have numbers, but Agony are also fielding frigates with ewar and drones.
Mangala warps us to the sun, where I manage to fraps the fight.
We win! Battle Report – http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=12141925
We give them a “gf” and head back to low to repair, rearm and reship.
Eventually we get underway again, when the Agony Class reports a couple of carriers about!
We wait nearby while the Agony group try to bait the Carriers into attacking, but an hour (!) of waiting gives us nothing so we continue on.
At this point, I’m feeling quite ill, so I have no choice but to log out for the night and try to sleep. Apparently, not a lot happened afterwards (the Ganked gang leeroy’d into a Razer gang and died, it seems)
Next Saturday is Missile night! Drakedrakedrakedrakes. Show up!
