So we decided to run our first Corporation Op. tonight. It was more of a practice run to get used to our FC's command style and to break in a new player into PVP (my gf).
We decided to check in a dead end low sec. system in Amarr, our frig only gang with two rifters (one of them belonging to me), a tristan, a Merlin and an Amarr Navy Slicer was guaranteed to tear apart ANY cruiser. However, things started out badly.
Immediately after we reach the other side of the gate, we encounter a gate camp, 2 battlecruisers. Not good.
We warped to stations while our FC in his Amarr Navy Slicer checked the belt. Nothing interesting in this system so we decided to head over to another system.
Several jumps out, we reach our new system, a system called Teshkat. Still nothing!
Two jumps into deeper low sec. however, and we found our PVP fix.
We went into a system called... nas-something, I don't know. CCP has a great way to name systems, just pick out random letters. We employed a shotgun belt scouting tactic, everyone was assigned a belt and would check the asteroid belt. Thus, we split up.
One of our fleet mates reported nothing, and yet another reported nothing. Seemed as though our luck was still on a shit streak until I reached my belt... An Arbitrator with drones surrounding it. Perfect!
While I closed in on it our FC reported the presence of an Orca, a hulk and an Osprey, not something we'd want to take on yet...
I closed in on it, engaged my tackling equipment and fired, the Arbitrator pilot didn't even react! It was time to bring in the wolf pack. My FC and my partner closed in and attacked as well. By the time the others had shown up, The ship was wrecked and the pod was escaping. Nothing really good in the cargo-hold.
Soon after we proceeded to a safe spot,our GCC was glaring red. Our FC got off for the night and thus we kept waiting it out until my partner started talking about destroying the Osprey defended by the Tengu. We were skeptical about it calling him crazy until he offered us 5 million Isk each to attack the thing. "The guys on EVE radio gave me 20 mill to attack the thing so lets do it!" he said into our vent channel.
"eh, I've got nothing to lose"... It's nice to say that in a rifter.
We warped in on top of them, attacked the Osprey and then a Vengeance uncloaked and attacked my partner. Our auto-cannons and blasters kept wrecking the thing, till it went pop!
The escape wasn't so graceful though... My rifter got blown up, my partner's merlin went sploosh and another corp mate lost his Tristan. The only surviving Corp ship was my Girl Friend's rifter, which she managed nicely. So there we sat in our Safe Spot, the last rifter on watch, as we waited for our GCC to go down. Not much we could do right?
Atleast we gave that Osprey pilot and the Arbitrator pilot a good kick to the head.
