I missed out on a very exciting weekend full of huge battles and ass stomping on the part of my alliance. I missed most of the drama of burn Jita as well. I was enjoying the feeds when I got to glance at them.
I also managed to low my Myrm (finally) down in low sec. Due to my inattention as well. As always, you get comfortable and you make mistakes. I made mine because I got distracted and missed someone scanning me down. Fast scanners are fast and you have to stay on top of things. I was very tired, to tired to be playing and distracted and he landed and I was like shit.
One of the irritating things, was that as he landed on me and I tried to warp off, I had no warp options. This happened a few times and then they popped up. Yay me. So he tackled me and I asked for help. The only person nearby was buzzing around in a frigate. I knew I was going to die. He'd been after me for about two months and I had been giving him the slip.
So I sighed, and started to fight back. I knew I was going to die. My T1 fit shield Myrm is a PvE ship played by my non PvP toon. Its a decent enough fit to survive a bit in low sec and I got him into armor before he took me down.
I put a simile face in local when he tackled me. No reason not to have a pleasant attitude about it. He said "Goodbye" and I said "Yup" as I popped and warped off. I was annoyed but I was mostly annoyed because I had just finished a really good mag site and had about 40mil in my hold in salvage. That will teach me not to drop off between sites from now on. Frustrated, irritated, etc, very much so. It is what it is. I've been doing a good job keeping people away from me and today I screwed up.
I was able to see the new affects in the nice new format CCP made for us to see that I was tackled.
When I logged back on later, my CEO says he is going to have to harass me for my fit. My fit is fine, it may not be the best but it is what my toon is capable of. I've been playing a toon for PvP that I shouldn't be. Therefor, I'll stop and use my other toon with her battle cruiser instead. She would probably have won that fight as well. Such is the cost of learning.
I lose a ship and I learn. Considering its the third time I've been popped in PvP on that toon in five months, not to bad.
