Fun times were had.
So I got my most epic solo kill last night =)
I was out roaming in Querious in my Pilgrim, trying to find some ratters, and hadn’t been having much luck. I camped UVHO-F for a while, as I used to live in that system months ago before Atlas. decided to stab us in the back, while watching TV but no one got bold enough to venture out to rat. After watching a couple episodes of “Boss” (Kelsey Grammar’s new show, it’s not bad), I decided I was going to put some work in and get me a kill.
I jumped onto dotlan and started checking systems for NPC kills. I found only one, H74-B0, which had just under 400 NPC kills in the last hour. I made my way over there, and it was quite quiet on the journey. When I arrived in H74, there were probably 10 or 15 people in local. They saw me and started talking in local.

Immediately I hit D-Scan and saw a Nightmare – I assumed at a pos, but I got a little excited. I did a system scan and there was only 1 haven within D-Scan range of the gate, so I warped to it at 70km, and landed 8km off the Nightmare. I immediately dropped my cloak, pointed him, and began neuting him. He must not have been in fleet, because he started crying in local.

He was dropping pretty quick, but his friends were trying to get their shit together to come help him, but I was not deterred.
[05:29:12] Hakawau > fleet me
[05:29:18] Hakawau > we’ll kill this goon
[05:29:46] kaspa101 > ?
[05:30:05] ez caper > invite pls
[05:32:07] Hakawau > Hakawau’s Fleet now
At this point, an Apoc landed at zero on the Nightmare to try and help him. Silly Apoc. By this point I knew the Nightmare’s cap was fully drained, so I put my Tracking Disruptor on the Apoc and he couldn’t touch me. The only damage on me was that of 10 light drones. My Pilgrim’s buffer tank was holding, for now. They were still crying for help though.
[05:32:12] Hakawau > warp to me, kill this faggot
As the Nightmare entered structure, a drake warped in and added to the damage, as well as pointed me. It’s not like I was going to warp out at this point though, I wanted that fucking Nightmare kill. Right as I was about 10-15% armor, BOOM, the Nightmare popped. I was so ecstatic I just cheered out loud and watched with a big smile as my Pilgrim exploded. Finally, I felt it was time I say something in local.
[05:33:15] ThatSourDiesel > WOTRH IT
[05:33:17] ThatSourDiesel > HAHAHAHA
[05:33:23] ThatSourDiesel > suck on that
[05:33:31] ThatSourDiesel > bye bye nightmare
They managed to get a point on my pod before I could get it out of there, but I didn’t care. I lost 2 +3 implants and a 3% CPU implant, but combined that with my ship I only lost ~225m while the Nightmare kill was about 1.5b. Seems like a fair trade to me.
In the end, I popped the Nightmare as it became 3v1, and 2 more showed up too late to help him. By far my best solo kill.
Oh, and I sent the Nightmare pilot an evemail right after where I requested his cooperation with a survey. I have yet to hear back.

**Meant to post this like 3 weeks ago, but it seems I saved it as a draft, whoops…**
So it turns out the guy trying to “recruit” me into WI. was nothing more than trying to recruitment scam me. I was being promised lots of awesome – capital ops, possible free upgrade to a Nyx, etc. But the dude did keep telling me that I should let them move my stuff into their space as it will be insured in case anything happens. I had sold pretty much everything except for a few T2 cruisers, my Blops BS, and various mods, which were all able to fit into my carrier. I told the guy that would not be necessary, I’d just jump in my carrier when the time came. He did try to talk me into letting them move the carrier for me, but I was like, no, I’ll move it. Oh and I’ll light my own cyno too.
By this point, I was starting to be suspicious, but I wasn’t sure as the dude had seemed pretty genuine up until that point (however, people were telling me that goons just recruitment scam people constantly). I tried to call him out, and told him he wasn’t going to get my stuff, so he tried to tell me it was no scam, and I got invited onto the WIdot TS3 which made it also seem more legit. I didn’t have time to hang though, so I logged in the next day and spoke to one of the recruiters who told me flat out that this person was trying to scam me. As it turns out, Wildly Inappropriate isn’t cool with people recruitment scamming under their name. I hung out on ts3 for a bit and was given the proper procedure to apply for the corp, and since I’m such an awesome guy, they decided to let me in.
The next day when I saw the guy trying to scam me log in, I convo’d him and said, “I told you you weren’t going to get my stuff.” I applaud his attempt, but there was never a time I considered contracting my stuff to him.
