After a recent hiatus from Eve Online due to work being super busy, I found the time to jump onto Eve for a quick gang roam with my buddys.
We have recently joined the Militia in an effort to recruit more players, so we plotted our destination from Old Man Star to Tama to see if there were any targets running around.
Our aim in the roam was to hang around in the small FW complexes, closing any opened by the Caldari Militia and giving our younger members some much needed operational experience.
The gang formation we chose to employ was 2 Tristans (Two of our younger members), a Catalyst (Fit for medium range DPS and flown by a high skilled pilot), and a Thrasher (Me, Another high skilled dps fit, 250DPS from this nifty ship).
The roam stated with a definite bang as a Sentinel EAF warped into s as we sat on a acceleration gate. He was quickly webbed and scrammed as he landed within 10k of our gang. After a few seconds his ship exploded, leaving some tasty loot.
An extremely pimped Sentinel, we stashed the loot in station to sell later :).
After the Sentinel pilot ran home in his pod an Arazu appeared, attempting to pull us off the warp gate, but a little creative manoeuvring allowed us to escape unharmed into the small plex (blocking his entry, as only T1 Frigates and Destroyers were allowed). We continued to close the plex keeping an eye on local for the Sentinel pilot in case he decided to come back for revenge.
Moving on from the first plex, we headed closer to Tama and started capturing a small Caldari Plex. Just as we finished off the last wave of NPC’s, 2 Dramiels entered the plex and held position 40km from us. After a slight hesitation on their part, they started to engage. My Thrasher was primaried and went down at the same moment as we took the first Dramiel out. Our tristans were doing an excellent job tackling the 2nd Dramiel as our Catalyst pilot applied railgun dps from just outside the Dramiels optimal (but well within his own), after a short fight, the 2nd Dramiel and both of our Tristans were down and warping from the battlefield. Unfortunately, a 3rd and 4th Dramiel had turned up at this point but our heroic Catalyst managed to escape the field with a mighty 15% structure remaining.
After kills were posted, we admired our good work, and laughed at the Sentinal pilot (who was also flying one of the Dramiels) for losing 400 mil ISK to a gang of T1 Frigs and Destroyers.
Damage Inflicted: 540 mil
Damage Taken: 25 mil
Loot sold: 85 mil
Who said Destroyers were weak?
