Substantia, I think your on the right path, and will have some great bomber experiences, personally I donGÇÖt fly with empties but I have recommended fits with empty slots, and itGÇÖs all about the benefit of the mod VS its price.
Woo hoo!! The carebear-in-hound just got a first bomber kill ... but of course it didn't go down quite as planned. Blow-by-blow to follow.
The plan was to ambush their scanner guy, since he seemed to use the same spot and wasn't terribly disciplined with his cloaking. I figured that was a good starter target.
First I waited, waited, and waited and just when i'd decided he was out Friday nite boozing and was about to head off myself, there he is warping into the POS in a sleipnir. I am **not** gonna try kill a sleipnir! Then, thankfully, he swaps to that nice little scanner buzzard.
So one of me sits near the POS watching him while the other warps to 32km from his expected scanning safespot.
Waiting, waiting, waiting ... and he does nothing.
Then he warps away in the wrong direction. Damn!!
Don't know what he was doing but no probes appeared. thankfully he was back pretty soon.
The inconsiderate sod then did not scan ... the cheek. He swapped to a blockade runner and warped off somewhere else. He engaged cloak, so there didn't seem much chance i'd catch and kill him in that.
A little while later he's back at the POS and swapping into a deep space transport. Hek!! I only have a single point and am not gonna stop that from warping away even if I found it.
he's to-and-fro into and out of the POS. I assume he's doing his daily PI or something.
By now I am getting a bit despondent. All this ground work and i'm not gonna get to shoot anything.
He lingers in the POS for a while then swaps to a drake. Can I kill a drake?? I'm sure a competent PvPer could, but can **I** kill a drake?
The drake warps out and one of me does the rounds and finally locates him working a mag site. Hmmm, can i do this?
So I warp in to nearby and sneakily slowboat to about 40km from where he's working. Then the other me follows from a slightly different direction.
We wait as he (damn slowly) clears the site. He gets to the final wave and it proves too tough for him ... he warps out
A minute later he warps back in, in a raven! Oh shoot, I am not gonna be able to kill a sleeper fit raven. Those shields will just laugh at me. I watch as he cruise missiles the BSs to death and then as the hobgoblin Is come out to clear the frigs. I remembered you all saying warrior IIs were my enemy and figured goblin Is were not such a threat. Will I? Won't I? Will I? You prolly all remember the feeling. I was nervous, my heart was racing, and I was sweating ... FFS it's only a game idiot!!
One sleeper frig to go. Hell, what have I got to lose? It's almost zero chance he's fitted to scram or point me and the cruises are not gonna hit well enough to one-shot me even if I messup.
I align to him and just as the last frig dies I'm at 30km. I uncloak, target lock, gang-load point and torps, and let bomb fly. Everything works, despite my shaking fingers :-) The other me then does the same, but makes sure the painter has cycled before releasing the bomb. For all that tank the shields just melted. I turned from orbit and let a second bomb fly. It took him to mid-structure and he ejected. Couldn't get a lock before the pod warped but the raven went boom a second or so later. I got to loot the ship (nothing particularly nice) **and** his cleared sleeper site.
So the first bomber kill for this carebear-in-a-hound was a raven. I kinda like the ring to that.
We've anchored a can, just to keep them on edge thinking we're still there watching and waiting, and hopped out to hisec to go find another target system. So far I am liking this stealth bomber business very much
Now I am spamming the battleclinic killboards wanting to see my uber kill appear ... damn slow that
