Breakfast explosions

I woke up at 0830 again local time. My trusty breakfast of Japanese rice balls accompanied me as I logged on and was convinced to come out in my rupture and do a little bit of roaming.

There was a gatecamp in a nearby system that they decided to breakup. About half the group was near the system and the rest of us ran to the titan to hotdrop. It was not a big fleet, about seven of us to their 6. We had a mix of battleships, battlecruisers, cruisers, and a logi. They had battleships and battlecrusiers. They even had a smartbombing Tempest.

They were baited and engaged. Once everyone engaged we popped the cyno and landed. This is where things got a bit awkward. We didn't spread our points like we were supposed to. I think that the call on the tempest got people distracted. One of our bait ships popped as we landed and when the cyno lit the camp started running for the hills.

The only weird part is that we fleeted with a member of the corp that has wardeced both of our groups. I admit, I'm a bit bitter about these things. I'm all for us shooting each other but the wardec is a bit much. However, I didn't question it and his ship is the one that went pop.

We looted and gave him all of the loot. Classy folk we are. However, I'm not all that happy to be running with people who wardeced us. The reason is more complex then gateguns. Its all sorts of ego issues and penis size problems. It makes me shake my head but I dislike feeling as if I have to watch them as much as the people that are not fleet purple.

The random roams are lovely. I feel so much more informed with what I am doing these days. I still get into arguments about the just dive in and shoot school of thought. I do understand that you have to start shooting and cant just learn but I just can not agree that the best way to learn is to take pure ignorance and try to learn from your mistakes.
