Gifts that keep on giving

As previously mentioned, the Tuskers ran a Secret Santa this year. My own Santa decided to give me three ships instead of one super-blingy one. I got two workhorse fleet ships - an ONI and a Gila - and then a tricked out Phantasm that looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. The goal is to fly these ships as much as possible over December/January, and compete to see who can get the most Secret Santa kills.

Having been away for the past few weeks, I'm not in any danger of winning. And I'd not really intended to play yesterday - I'd just gotten back the day before, and I was as sick as a dog. But when a ping went out regarding a hostile fleet sitting on our wormhole, I dutifully logged in.

I really wanted to bring the Phantasm, but the doctrine was heavy shield, which meant the Gila. We formed up on the Chaos side of our null sec static, and waited for the locals to make their move. We'd apparently been terrorizing them most of the day, and they had finally formed up to do something about us.

They had eyes on us, though - we knew there was at least one Loki in system with us. When they saw us form up, they decided that at this point the cheapest way to get rid of us was to ram a series of Ravens (and Sigils, bizarrely) through the hole and close it up.

Oh, well. Free kills, and a nice, gentle start to 2017.

Happy new year, New Eden!


  1. They used Sigils because they are the cheapest ship that can fit a 100MN AB.

  2. That makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up.
