The Downward Spiral

You jumped through the wrong gate!

What do you do when you have limited play time and still want to kill stuff? Well, you camp a well-travelled gate of course! Having escaped or died from a ton of these in my time, I do enjoy turning the tables and preying on the hapless unscouted capsuleer once in a while, even though I much prefer fast roaming gangs and actual fleet engagements. While on one side gate camping maybe the crudest form of EVE PvP, it is also the least stressful and it's a good opportunity to get to know the new people you fly with and also have a good laugh, all the while staying on high alert with our ears constantly straining to hear news from the scout on the other side who could be calling in something juicy at any moment.

We also do keep our ears to the ground for anything that may appear in the neighboring systems, like a Bhaalgorn who looked like he wanted to play Station Games™ will an alliance mate; he would have died quite nicely too if only said alliance mate hadn't aggressed him first, allowing the Blood Raider boat to dock up after getting melted to half armor. Mate swore he was aggressed first and even took a screenshot of the combat logs, ready to petition. A quick look, a massive facepalm and a strong advice NOT to send this to CCP later, we did have a good laugh about it.

So as you notice my security status is plunging like a meteor. I did say I was resubbing for The PvP only and in this regard I do believe I am succeeding. And it's not one single gate camp that will change this. There is talk about a possible redeployment where I could possibly grind up a bit of favor with CONCORD, but I will not slow down my blood thirst. The PvP is too much fun!

Flying safe is out of the question!
