Trainer Corp - wtfm8 ?

Just for fun, I'll give you a history of my pvp activities since returning to EVE.  I started a corporation which consists of only my main characters: Acki Juc, Seros Kal, and Jangizal.  I live in Curse with some like minded friends.  This is Trainer Corp.  I have no official blues.  If there's an opportunity to kill something, I'll take it.  We get some various kills here and there, but I'll go over some of the more interesting ones.  When I say "we," I'm usually just referring to the local YKE guys, Dispo, Ethan, Voodo, Ales, and Freesoul.  This does not include the bads that live next door in K-Q.  Many entities get us mixed up with a4d and think we use falcons.  We do not.

One of the first things I did when I came back to the game was bring down a shield vexor navy issue that does 800+ dps (and goes 2.8k m/s) to the F4R2-Q area with the intention of killing something in the MB- pocket.  Jumping into this system, I scanned down a mega that was running anomalies.  I narrowly miss him, but end up landing within 10k of a rapier that was decloaked at a spot off the ZXIC gate.  He had a velocity of 0 m/s.  The mega had warped to a tactical off this gate, but was 300km from me, so I immediately brawled down the rapier from Pandemic Horde.  This was my first kill in half a year.

The next day, we kill off a plexing tengu.  He sent in his pilgrim friend only after the tengu was about to pop.  He could have warped off on the warp gate, but instead suicided into us.  Some people never cease to amaze.  After that, three of us break up a pretty serious mining op through a wormhole in the Spire.  Not long after that, we come back and fuck with them again.  There were more, but since we didn't lose anything, they naturally don't show up on the killboard.  Unfortunately, I wasn't recording any of this pewpew yet, so it will only live in memories and killboards.

On the 29th (28th in the US), we took a few cruisers and paid a visit to the retards in Wicked Creek, Concordiat/TEST Alliance.  We first ganked a couple miners in SO-X5L and 1-7B6D.  No response.  We hung around to give them some time to form a gang to drive us out.  Eventually they brought out a hurricane, machariel, and ishtar.  All of these ships died ( https://zkillboard.com/related/30000574/201505290400/ ).

I'll move forward to the 3rd of June.  I was docked watching Youtube videos and local goes up by one in YKE.  Nothing out of the ordinary, right ?  I undock and caught an orca on scan.  He was trying to collapse the wormhole that was in system that connected to a C5.  We get tackle in place on both sides, including a dictor, and chewing through all that hp.  Ryvius, the name of the orca pilot, manages to get back into the C5, but not in time.  He's tackled, polarized, and dead.  I even had a mach in YKE ready to bump.

My first recording that I have of any action since returning to EVE is this tengu.  We were going through to the MB- pocket in small stuff.  I was doing the lead scout role in a dramiel, just because that's what I wanted to do.  I warp to a tactical off Jamunda and there's a fucking tengu burning towards Jamunda from a mobile depot that was sitting above the gate.  I warp to the depot at range and scram the tengu straight away.  Caia, the pilot of the tengu, actually turned around, away from the gate, and let me tackle him.  Odd boy, indeed.  A bit of backup arrives and he dies a horrible death.

We killed total0WNAG3 in a shitfit drake.  Sadly, I had respect for him until this point.  He is no longer on my list of pilots that can be considered better than I am at EVE.  It's a huge list, don't worry.  You're probably on it.  It was just sad to see him die without really putting up any sort of a fight.

Later on, we found another wormhole that led to Oasa.  We brought a stiletto and two orthruses.  These Alternate Allegiance guys are about as bad as they come in 0.0.  Just the three of us ruined their day.  I really wish I had recorded the entire fight, but only got the final moments.  We left but came back moments later.  On our return trip, we managed to snag a few other ships including an ishtar and heretic.

On June 6th, we had a really good brawl with some Verge of Collapse guys that were looking to get some insurance money.  They hung around long enough for freesoul to fly all the way back to YKE from Rage, which was something like 10 jumps away, and switch ships.  VoC brought a stiletto, a typhoon, a maelstrom, a scythe fleet issue, and a stabber fleet issue.  We brought three drakes and a scythe.  In the end, they lost three of those ships, but didn't start talking shit, unlike the Guns N' Roses fanbois of a4d.  They also didn't use ecm faggotry ships, so added respect for that.

Moving on to June 12th here, a4d + friends try moving through one of our systems, RMOC-W, in an armor blob full of committing ships logi with ecm ships behind them.  Thinking they can go through our space as they please, they land in a bubble only to get assraped by three orthruses and an arbitrator.  They end up losing a guardian, caracal, vexor, maulus, cynabal, and an augoror.  I love these kids.  They talk so much trash, yet can't figure out why they keep getting rekt.

Another group of retards in the area that loves to use ecm is this Quantum Link Company corp.  They literally never fight.  The only knowledge of this game is jam and cloak.  That's it.  So, when we scout a cloaky sabre falcon scrub doing something other than setting up to gank a single ship, we go for the jugular.  Mike Rutsh, one of the retards in that corp, is spotted running a plex in Farit, using a rattlesnake.  We get in our blops ships and drop on him on his way out of system.  This is what Quantum Link will be known for from now on.

One of the many scrubs in a4d that pretends he's not terrible at EVE is DsItnangel.  He started running a plex (8/10 if I remember correctly) in a domi and stopped because one of our guys was in local.  He sat in system cloaked up for a fucking day before trying to leave.  On his attempt to make it out, we were ready.  We were able to probe him out, hard tackle him, kill him, and finish the site that he started.  What a muppet.

We run through a wormhole that leads to Malpais.  There's five of us, so we run what I like to call "Puff Fleet," which is just two interceptors and multiple roaming ships.  This way, you can do things a lot faster.  You have the freedom to quickly scout two areas, find targets in a single system faster, or keep something pinned on each side of a gate.  It's more fun than having to rely on one dude (even if he's the shit) to provide content for your gang. 

That's what happened with with the nestor.  Voodo went one way, I went another.  I happened to be the guy that found a nestor parked next to an orca in a mining belt.  We had the cruisers a few jumps away, and managed to kill him before any backup arrived to drive me away.

Okay, until this point, I've had no ship losses, but sadly that was about to change.  I made a piloting error.  I brought an omen navy issue to help fight a random ishtar traveling through curse with legion - lawl ? - links.  I get a bit too close to him and with those links + overheated t2 web (rofl), I lose enough speed for him to put a scram on me.  If an ishtar is able to put a scram on an omen navy, it's dead.  Not much you can do.  The rep isn't going to keep you alive with geckos on you from a drone boat.  I had my orthrus jumping in.  Weed Jones, the retard that was piloting the ishtar, didn't warp off.  He stayed long enough for me to get a point and set a safe orbit at 35k away.  He died.  To this day, this remains the only ship loss I've suffered since my return to EVE a few months ago.

I was a bit on edge, so I ran through the wormhole to Malpais and started hunting for something to kill.  Lucky for me, I snagged a BoT gila.  That loot more than made up for the omen loss.

We move forward, once again, to June 29th.  This wormhole that we find is about as good as they come.  There's a direct from curse straight to NB-ALM, which is next door to a Dream Fleet jump bridge system with station.  I tell the guys that I'll part a cloaked sabre off the station in line with the jump bridge.  I was only joking at first, but then I thought that might actually be a good idea.  So I do just that.  This was after a quick brawl with a gila, thorax, and enyo.  15 minutes after I send Acki in, something appears on scan from the jb.  It's a rhea.  A fucking RHEA.  I uncloak and put up a bubble.  Now we play the waiting game.  It's possible the guy finds me on scan, but I sit patiently anyway.  My backup is next door in the wormhole system.  It seems like an hour passes when finally he lands on my bubble.  I drop another and bring everyone in.  We had a gila, cynabal, orthrus, sabre, scythe, and malediction in all.  Dream Fleet responds by undocking an mjd domi, cerberus, and ishtar.  Things didn't work out for them.

On the 4th of July, we take out some high dps frigs and head towards Dramatic Exit space.  I feel like giving them a lesson on EVE Online play.  Of course, we killed some of their stuff, but it was more their response that interested me.  I'm in one of their public channels, so some of them thought I was blue.  I've told them over and over that I'm not a blue.  We're "frienemies."  I will shoot you.  You can shoot me.  It's pretty simple and I like how that works.  They didn't understand this at the time.  Anyway, the following messages were said:

[ 2015.07.04 21:07:17 ] Merfyn Auscent > Acki, you fucking traitor! I thought you loved me :(
[ 2015.07.04 21:02:30 ] Kuba Maken > fuck you niggers
[ 2015.07.04 21:23:31 ] TheDivineShadow > Acki, do you seriously expect getting any logi in fleets coming around here like that?You are not excused, it's that simple. And yes, I get pissed :)

Needless to say, they were a bit unhappy.

Just a few days ago, I checked a random deadend system that was about 15 jumps away in Scalding Pass.  There was an apoc sitting @ 0 on the in gate in his own large bubbles.  The bubbles reached to about 100km off the gate itself, so I was almost certain he was mjd fit.  Why wouldn't you be ?  These guys didn't have eyes in the system I was in, yet he still aggressed my ceptor.  At range, there was a cruise missile raven, a bomber, and some other random shit.  Nothing gave me a real threat so, I jumped in our rupture and vexor navy issue (the same exact ship that brawled down the rapier, my first kill since starting Trainer Corp) and murderize the apoc.  These retards are known as Two Inch Terror.  The new kids on the block.  This is where we're going to find content.  I can feel it.

We leave and come back later.  I bring a nano vigilant.  Something slightly different from your every day roaming ship and incredibly effective at killing things within 25k.  On our return trip, we find some dudes beat us to the scene.  It's a few Rolled Out (TRI) who have tackled an orca and other shit in a mining belt.  We bro up for the time being and start working on these TIT clowns.  After TIT dropped two carriers on the field and getting massacred, the killboard looked something like this.  That pretty much leads us to where we're at right now.  As of this post, I have 321 unique kills and one loss.  That's 51.08 billion ISK in damage and 196 m in losses.  I've made quite a bit of cash, even after the omen navy loss, purchasing a vargur, a backup orthrus, and dozens of other random ships.

It is ISK farming time.  Soon, I will join a corp.  I'm still not 100% sure who I want to fly with, but it certainly won't be Goons.
