Decided to take a vacation to my favorite R+R destination today, Rens. Jumped into a cyclone I had laying around and found a few people looking for a fight. First was a very honorable (for rens) chap in a shield fit gank brutix. Was a VERY close fight, nearly put me in hull and his flight of medium jam drones knocked out my lock two times. During the second jam my little warriors worked their magic and popped his ship. Decent fit with a pilot nearly double my flight time and skill knowledge, made me feel pretty good. Had a nice conversation with the guy afterwords, exchanging fits, thoughts, and ideas..... was a nice change from the usual "go to hell" or insta drop from private comms channel.
After a bit I accepted a challenge from Jimmy 15- a pilot that took out my myrm with his HAM drake pretty much because I hastily bought and fit it with a wrong module. Thermic hardener against a drake? FAILLLLL.
In any case, I was in a cyclone for this one, him in his HAM drake, and this time, AZN prevailed. Didn't even take me to armor, which is seriously impressive considering his pretty decent damage with heavy assault missiles.
Typical banter of me cheating arose, which is strange considering this guy sometimes ship scans people to get their fits and then refits (has been confirmed).

This was followed by about 3 more PMs i did not accept. Later, this;
[ 2011.03.10 02:53:31 ] Aznwithbeard > im not fighting ur phoon
[ 2011.03.10 02:53:35 ] Aznwithbeard > if u get in a bc ill fight you

[ 2011.03.10 02:56:02 ] Aznwithbeard > ok then nothing, and stop PMing me. i dont fly battleships.
Strange dude, probably neut/bait, and I wasn't having it.
Fought a pilot about a year older then me but with similar skills, he was bringing a cane so I figured I'd dust my cane off, despite having that bad feeling.
Ehh, I guess I was just a little nervous, I havent been liking buffer fit battle-cruisers lately, they seem a bit, fragile I guess.
Anyway, The hurricane pilot was also super nice, we had a nice chat, wants to fly with me, I'm cool with that.
Anyway, Smith wants to go to bed, and it seems my vacation is over..... Just gunna finish up with the last of my random evemails and private comms channels and unplug.
Quick edit: the wardec did not go through for some reason, even though both me and Rodensteiner took a corporate vote in favor of wardeccing them, and us both having shares, it doe not make sense. Wardec pushed back a full 24 hours because of this as we have to revote.
