As the meme goes “OH GOD WHY”…I destroyed a pod yesterday and now my security status has a new low record: -2.96. Hello 1 week of lowsec ratting.
There was no warning for the things that transpired that fateful night. I logged in to do some carebear stuff, namely to buy some cobalt. Recently I managed to get my security status from -2.5 up to -1.96, and access to 1.0 systems was granted again. My faithful Viator-class transport was 2 jumps away and I jumped into an Incursus-class frigate to travel to it’s location. On my way I met a fellow pilot with the same class of ship and with the same route to go…nice. Maybe some PvP action was ahead. We jumped almost together and as I was to offer him a gratuitous container with 1 piece of hybrid ammo, but he warped away. I tried to check his location with the directional scanner only to see him jump back. So I followed. And on the other side…there was the Incursus, 20 km away. I started my approach and then noticed that I was targeted, which is good as it shows that the pilot wants to PvP.
As soon we got into each others ranges he started to shoot. I was “lol, wut?!”. Apparently the pilot was a rookie, as he aggressed me on a gate, while in an Incursus-class frigate, in low-sec, without me being flagged for aggression in any way. Needless to say, he got popped in under 5 seconds and the pod was left there floating…tempting me with it’s curves, as a voluptuous woman would do…or maybe taunting the cat-like instinct “See a pod, shoot a pod”. For reasons still unknown to me, I locked the it and a second later pod goo turned into Popsicles and some meat was put in the freezer for long term storage. The gate guns then turned their attention to me and I had to flee the scene of the crime. Exit stage right.
The pilot then convo-ed me, not mad with rage as I suspected, but a bit disorientated from the recent reincarnation, asking what happened. I gave him some tips because he wanted to pursue a pirate career, being tired of suicide ganked as a miner and our ways separated.
And now I’m barred again from 1.0 systems. On the bright side, I have a corporation member who can do the dirty job of hauling, while I take my time ratting.
