The True Stories from the First Decade of EVE is something that makes me very happy. I also have a good story and I want to share it with you.
However – I still don’t have enough money to pay my subscription and even if I pay it I still need to buy a good graphics card, I found a good one in a local place, costs like 50 Euro, Palit Nvidia GeForce GT620 PCI-EX2.0 2GB DDR3 64bit, DVI/HDMI/CRT, I really like it, but maybe later. Finding a good job and ensuring a steady income is the priority now.
So, the deadline comes near, I think I can’t make it in time, that’s why I will post my story here.
Today I want to tell you a story that brings me back to YC 112 and the times when I was roaming the skies with the guys from the first Capsuleer Corporation that I joined. It doesn’t exist today, but memories remain and they are so bright. It is a story of respect and amazement.
It was the time when our officers invited us, rookies, to participate in a low-sec roam. We were instructed to buy some cheap and affordable frigates and meet our fleet commander at a rendezvous point. Our corporation headquarters was in Sasoutikh and we were supposed to roam the nearby systems for pirate rats and capsuleers. We were five or six men and our commander had the opportunity and responsibility to guide us through the roam and safely bring us back home.
We gathered together and headed to the nearest low-sec system. It was fun. We were instructed on how to bring up the watchlist, set up our voice communications and we were told the basics of roaming. We were exploring various places in each system, splitting up and seeking for targets. We found a lot of Sanshas – small fleets of frigates in belts, and there were cruisers and battleships too. This was the first time when I actually attacked a battleship with a frigate. The excitement of battling these large spiky ships was something memorable. It was a notable example on how even a small group of T1 frigates and one destroyer could tear apart a battleship escorted by a cruiser and two or three frigates.
