Never underestimate the stupidity of others.

I have started to play EvE again recently, and I have been roaming around with Apoctasy and Twicedasize. We have got into alot of  fights but tonight we got into something truely special.

The tale starts with a guy called Kane Uchea. We came across him doing a low sec mission in his Drake in a system called Dantumi. Being Pythons at heart, Me and Twice decided to do what is known as a "Python". A "Python" is the act of inviting someone to fleet for the sole purpose of warping to them and killing them.

Well most of the time, the person in question would decline the invitation and we would just move on. But not this time! He accepted the invite so we decided to keep him talking so he wouldnt notice us landing in his misson:

[ 2012.10.15 02:11:21 ] Andrea Skye ; hi m8
[ 2012.10.15 02:11:25 ] Andrea Skye ; have u seen a wolf around
[ 2012.10.15 02:11:27 ] Andrea Skye ; he shot my friend
[ 2012.10.15 02:11:35 ] Kane uchea ; no
[ 2012.10.15 02:11:37 ] Andrea Skye ; dam
[ 2012.10.15 02:11:44 ] Andrea Skye ; if you see one there is a reward for his corpse
[ 2012.10.15 02:12:03 ] Andrea Skye ; good day sir
[ 2012.10.15 02:12:10 ] Kane uchea ; kk

But alas, when we landed he had already warped out. So we decided to wait and see if he came back. Twice accidentally (derp) warped to the gate instead of the mission, and ran right into Kane's Drake. Twice quickly gtfo'd as he has sentries:

[ 2012.10.15 02:14:19 ] Kane uchea ; u cowered
[ 2012.10.15 02:14:59 ] Andrea Skye ; did you find the wolf?
[ 2012.10.15 02:15:44 ] Kane uchea ; no  TwiceDAsiZe locked onto me
[ 2012.10.15 02:16:09 ] Andrea Skye ; hes in my corp
[ 2012.10.15 02:16:13 ] Kane uchea ; and turned tail and ran
[ 2012.10.15 02:16:24 ] Andrea Skye ; i will punish him
[ 2012.10.15 02:16:35 ] Andrea Skye ; he shouldnt be locking anybody without permission

He seemed to believe us and then issued a challenge to everyone in local:

[ 2012.10.15 02:19:52 ] Kane uchea ; i am calling to who ever is flying a wolf to come and fight me at the Aurohunen gate

Being the good guy, I decided to explain to him the perils of fighting on gates:

[ 2012.10.15 02:20:05 ] Andrea Skye ; you cant fight on gates sir
[ 2012.10.15 02:20:23 ] Andrea Skye ; he will not leave them either
[ 2012.10.15 02:20:27 ] Andrea Skye ; he is a coward
[ 2012.10.15 02:20:33 ] Kane uchea ; only of there is concord there is no concored here
[ 2012.10.15 02:20:42 ] Andrea Skye ; yeh but there are sentry guns
[ 2012.10.15 02:20:47 ] Andrea Skye ; they do so much damage
[ 2012.10.15 02:22:00 ] Kane uchea ; there is no concored power in 0.4 and below
[ 2012.10.15 02:22:10 ] Andrea Skye ; yes but there is sentries
[ 2012.10.15 02:22:15 ] Andrea Skye ; shoot the gate and you will see
[ 2012.10.15 02:22:19 ] Kane uchea ; there is nothing here
[ 2012.10.15 02:23:28 ] Kane uchea ; fine i will hunt him doun
[ 2012.10.15 02:23:35 ] Kane uchea ; down*

This was our chance!

[ 2012.10.15 02:24:01 ] Andrea Skye ; i see him
[ 2012.10.15 02:24:10 ] Kane uchea ; were and what is his name
[ 2012.10.15 02:24:29 ] Andrea Skye ; Mort RoidReaper he is in the ice field
[ 2012.10.15 02:24:48 ] Mort RoidReaper ; bugger ive been rumbled

Mort was actually just a random guy in local, who sportingly played along. A few seconds later we saw Kane land in the Ice Field next to us. We pointed, shot and blew up his Drake. Local seemed to be following along and when the guy left local:

[ 2012.10.15 02:31:19 ] Mort RoidReaper ; The big question is did he find the big bad wolf hes was looking for?....i do love happy endings
[ 2012.10.15 02:31:36 ] Andrea Skye ; there was no wolf
[ 2012.10.15 02:31:48 ] Andrea Skye ; we invited him to convo and told him there was a reward for the corpse of a wolf
[ 2012.10.15 02:31:54 ] Andrea Skye ; the wolf shot my friend``
[ 2012.10.15 02:32:05 ] Mort RoidReaper ; now lost for words
[ 2012.10.15 02:32:08 ] Andrea Skye ; i guess he wanted the reward

But the story wasn't over yet, he opened a convo with us, I decided to play along abit, and see if we could make him do something else stupid:

[ 2012.10.15 02:28:57 ] Andrea Skye ; what happened?
[ 2012.10.15 02:29:28 ] Kane uchea ; u shot me
[ 2012.10.15 02:29:35 ] Andrea Skye ; i didnt shoot you
[ 2012.10.15 02:29:42 ] Andrea Skye ; i never shoot anbody that isnt a criminal
[ 2012.10.15 02:29:45 ] Andrea Skye ; are you a criminal?
[ 2012.10.15 02:30:11 ] Kane uchea ; and that must be y u have a sucrity rating of -10
[ 2012.10.15 02:30:23 ] Andrea Skye ; yes i lose sec for shooting the bad guys
[ 2012.10.15 02:30:33 ] Kane uchea ; i know u shot me i am not stupit
[ 2012.10.15 02:30:33 ] Andrea Skye ; i try to kee plow sec safe

[ 2012.10.15 02:30:57 ] Andrea Skye ; i dont shooot anybody unless they deserve it
[ 2012.10.15 02:31:15 ] Kane uchea ; how did i deserv it i dont even have a bounty
[ 2012.10.15 02:31:48 ] Kane uchea ; and i have a positiv sucrity states
[ 2012.10.15 02:32:19 ] Andrea Skye ; i didnt shoot you man
[ 2012.10.15 02:32:27 ] Andrea Skye ; maybe it was someone with a similar name
[ 2012.10.15 02:32:57 ] Kane uchea ; i was looking at your ship and user info when u shot me
[ 2012.10.15 02:33:16 ] Andrea Skye ; Andrea Skyee
[ 2012.10.15 02:33:20 ] Andrea Skye ; maybe it was her
[ 2012.10.15 02:34:00 ] Kane uchea ; i have kill rights on u and twice
[ 2012.10.15 02:34:17 ] Andrea Skye ; didnt twie lock you earlier

[ 2012.10.15 02:35:13 ] Andrea Skye ; we never shoot anybody
[ 2012.10.15 02:35:27 ] Andrea Skye ; and if twice shoots anyone without permission he gets severely punished
[ 2012.10.15 02:35:37 ] Andrea Skye ; last time he had to pay a 500 million isk fine

[ 2012.10.15 02:36:51 ] Kane uchea ; u get kill rights when some one shoots at u
[ 2012.10.15 02:36:58 ] Andrea Skye ; maybe he shot at you?
[ 2012.10.15 02:37:06 ] Andrea Skye ; if he did he will pay a fine

[ 2012.10.15 02:38:14 ] Kane uchea ; killrights only work if that person shoots someone not if one shoots someone they all get it

He left the convo, and now it seems we have a very powerful bunch of friends and allies who are going to get us back. I will never leave my home system again.

UP and DOWN the pipe. (but mostly down)

I spent most of my time tonight going up and down a pipe of systems near Egghelende with Necio. I was in an Arazu and he was in a Macherial. It was pretty uneventful for the most part but we did manage to snag a Drake who got a little to cocky on a gate.

I tackled him on a gate first, but he jumped through and warped to a spot about 300k off it. He told us how he'd like to kill us:

[00:36:32] Revathy > i wish you were in something smaller
[00:36:49] Revathy > so that I can shoot my missiles at you and blow you up

He continued to warp to spots just off gates, until eventually we managed to probe him out and kill him. He didn't say anything after that.

So, we carried on roaming, and we did manage to get camped in a system called Taff by a bunch of Recons and T3's but they eventually got bored and let us go. I did manage to enjoy a Cheese and pickled Onion Sandwich while we was waiting for them to leave, so it wasn't all to bad.

When we finally got out we headed to a system called Avenod. In Python this system had special meaning, as it was the system where Python MK1 originally died. Its been a running joke ever since then about it being a kind of Elephant Graveyard for corps. Its where corps go to die.

Avenod, was well, dead of course. But on the way back to our main pipe we noticed a Carrier on scan in a system called Isbrabata, and we soon found it wasn't just on scan it was in a mission! So off went Necio with the probes and off I went in corp chat telling my corp to get their asses here asap.

5 seconds later, which is exactly the amount of time Necio needs to probe you out, he told me he had a hit! So in he warped, with me in tow, only to find that the Carrier had gone. Dam, he must of seen the probes.

So we did what any persistent pirate would do and we bookmarked the mission then made believe we had left. Necio kept his unaffiliated alt in system to watch if he came back and after a couple of minutes he returned to his mission.

I immediately jumped back in and warped to the bookmark, only to land 80km off of him. I uncloaked and hit my MWD and managed to get a point, only to get targeted by the 500000 rats in the mission. I saw my cap disappear instantly from a bunch of rats nuets and there was a bunch of rat missiles heading my way. Outta cap and unable to point I was useless.

The carrier managed to get away, but he didn't dock up. He sat outside the station for a while and he actually shot at us a few times with his drones. He had also gotten the help of 2 friends, one in a Macherial and one in a Hurricane. My fellow corpies had arrived in the system next door by now and we figured we might actually be able to get a fight outta these guys.

But even with all the warping-to-obvious-belt and warping-back-to-the-station-then-back-to-obvious-belt. They still wouldn't play, and to our dismay one of them told us to "have fun" in local, then all three of them docked up and logged off.

All wasn't lost tho, because while we were dicking around with the Carrier it turns out a Maelstrom had started to do a mission. Necio quickly probed him out and I warped too him but again that wasn't just a simple kill. Turns out the guy had disconnected, and was in an emergency warp safe, and when he logged back in we were actually warping to his emergency safe... so it seemed like we had missed yet another kill...

EXCEPT Necio just hit scan again and warped us to his real mission, this time I got a point and managed to hold it long enough for the rest of the gang to arrive and finish him off.

After that we all headed home, kinda disappointed about the Carrier. But at least we got something.

What do you mean its october? Oh I see, I havent posted this entire year! Well, thats because I quit EvE. I had grown seriously bored of low sec and its tiny balled inhabitats and I ended up giving all my gear away. All in all, about 3 billion isk, a carrier and a bunch of ships.

I did manage to retrieve some, and I have managed to get enough back to get by, but if i learnt anything, its:

But anyway, I got the urge to play again. So now I have just applied to a new corp. They are called The Black Sail Anarchists and they live in Egghelende which is one of my favourite systems of all time. Hopefully I shalt have a ton of adventures worth writing about, and if not, well, I guess I'll just post ponies.
