We first found some weird stuff outside a Plex, mix of Sabre, stratios, thorax and others. I was so confused and laughing about the comp that I wasn't great at target calling. Should have focused right on the Sabre but ended up only getting the Thorax.
We reshipped right away and tackled a lonely Atron at the Juf gate (ah yes, and an Abaddon apparently, which I kinda forgot about ...that one jumped right before we killed it and I didn't communicate well with the fleet about how/whether we could pursue)...Stay Frosty overcompensated with t3c and other stuff. One of them contacted me and apologized for dunking quite so hard, wanting to compensate us for the losses.
After reshipping and coming back (me in a neuting Maller I had originally wanted to sacrifice in the Frigate FFA a while ago). A Tempest showed itself at the Juf gate and gave us a fight till the bitter end. The Pilot had the fitting name of "Beharrlichkeit". The respomse force was very chill this time and we ended the fight around a station. Killing Rixx Javix himself in a Gnosis! Honourable pirates that they are, there where no station games. Rixx contacted me after that fight and we set up for some more engagements.
I asked for Frigates...and they delivered a bunch of Garmurs at the open
After another message to Rixx they changed their comp to give us more chance to kill something. They where nice enough to slide into us in a Novice, hookbill first. I tried to work heavily with primary, secondary calling and we ended up getting a luckily blingy Cruor.
The last fight saw us against Slicers and more faction frigates at an open, but we managed to snatch something nonetheless.
At the end we talked about whether logi did us any good or we should have been all in Merlins. Not really sure what would have been better.
Also thought about SRPing the Maller, as it should clearly be a standard addition to the Merlin doctrine
- ✔ (Positive stuff)
- initiated Wulfger in his first PvP fleet
- had loads of fun
✘ (Negative stuff)
- had too much fun to be really focused on FCing
- did not call to spread tackle or tackle specific targets
- should have called for scout to reship into Merlin after it was clear we'd stay in Ouelletta
