A little while back I settled into a new corp. with ZombiNutz my lost and languishing combat pilot. At the time the corp. I joined outwardly looked to be another mission running highsec crew. The kill board was 100% losses and not what you might expect as the place I chose to find my PEW PEW.
I also made a solid commitment to the rifter at this time. I’ve done nothing but train for rifter related skills and fly rifters since then with very few exceptions where the drake saw some fire. I’ve flown the rifter around in missions. I’ve taken it ratting in lowsec and had a few dances with the locals. I got my first ever kill via a duel with Astra Dominix in a rifter. I have rifter hulls in more places than any other asset in EVE.
So with that said the corp. choice was made based on long term goals. Those goals are sending us rapidly into 0.0 as soon as we can land and setup shop. So naturally the rifter will be the first thing I fly into 0.0. It’s cheap yet powerful, super fun to fly, and considered a valid ship for a new PvP player to cut his teeth in. I cannot help but think I am bringing a swiss army knife to a very large gunfight.
I expect more kills and a lot more deaths to begin flowing sometime in the next week or so. I cannot say I’ll be posting too much detail about them as it’s frowned upon to share too much publically. I will tell you that I’ll post about all of them in good time with what I learned from them all.
Fun times are ahead.
