Stabber Fleet Issue

It all started out innocently enough, me patrolling the asteroid belts of raneilles, looking for war targets and criminals alike. Found a small mining fleet rather quickly. Seemed odd to me though, older capsuleers, T2 ships, an orca for heavens sake, who in their right mind continues on with mining years into their career? Something had to be going on, so I decided to take a closer look.

Sure enough, their corp had a can jettisoned, filled with illegally mined ore. That struck a nerve with me, as I remember reading the memoirs of a certain capsuleer about a month after graduating flight school, and even though his corporation is still in tact, the CEO is no longer within our universe, I feel as though I must pick up the flaming torch and defend Verge Vendor from such indiscretions.

Filed the paperwork, added the pilots to the watch list. Could get kinda tricky, some of their pilots have more seat timethen me, and I have seen some expensive ships around. Wait the 24 hours. Log in with a few hours to spare. Run some locators, seems they just got their asses handed to them in lowsec. Make about 50 jumps trying to catch someone running back home. Nothing. They're reshipping in Raneilles, perfect. Get there and they are no where to be found. Fleeing. 15 jumps into Amarr highsec. Make the call, pursue them. Seems they moved all their assets to another destination. More pilots, better equipment, running from one matari fighter. Pathetic.

Get to their home system, keep ever watchful. Have a few in system, more plugged in in unknown locations. Harbinger undocks and starts shooting my SFI. Try to drag him off station. Either he doesn't have a prop mod, is incredibly stupid and doesn't realize that he can not hold a point (or hit, me at all) past 28KM, or thinks (correctly) that I'll rip him to pieces with my 350 DPS and prefers to stay in dock range. Hurricane coming in as well. Another pilot trickles in. By the time their ready to fight, the binger switches to a paladin, someone else is in a hurricane, and theres even some idiot flying a vagabond with a web. That just webbed me. With the paladin in his optimal and firing. With my sig bloomed because my MWD is on. And the cane is closing in. Scram the vaga and overload the MWD. paladin puts me into 1/4 armor immediately. Break the web range and align out, still need to get out of warp disruptor range. second shot and I'm in 3/4 hull, reps cycle and I gain some armor. Pilot is overloading his point but I'm quicker. break range and hit the warp. Third shot and I'm now in 1/4 hull, WARP DAMN YOU. "Warp drive active". Phweeew. Compliment the Paladins DPS in local. They compliment my reps.

Like I said, could be tricky. Ponder what to do as I unplug, tomorrow is another day.

Log back in, some of their pilots in local. Make some food, take some shots, get in the undock queue. Undock into a thorax. Tackled. Burn away from him casually. His dps is nil. Decide its a tarp, go for it anyway. Ishtar lands but I keep on the thorax. Taking too long. Finally explodes, turn my attention to the ishtar. Hes holding shield, has to be SPR fit. Align and burn. I leave the field, he docks up. I wait for him to undock about 30 clicks off the station. Eventually he comes back out. Runs right at me. Different ammo this time makes the difference, hes losing shields way quicker but they have as new pilot in warp to the fight. Spam D-scan. Hurricane. Frack. Align and overload DPS. Cane lands first. Ishtar explodes and I warp before cane gets a lock. Could have been bad. warp back in and cane is scooping loot. I burn for him, he burns for me. Scratch that, he was burning for the station. Docks.

They don't come back out.

Chase them around for a few more days before I realize they're cowards and won't fight. Somehow found a probing caracal at the sun with faction gear. BOOM.

 Let the dec go to the end in case they want to find me. 

They don't.

Total kills - 271 million ISK 

Losses - 0
