Farewell Simba

This is to note the passing of Simba the very first Assault Frigate I ever owned. As the very first assault frigate I ever owned I over-rigged it in order to make sure it could fit dual T2 medium shield extenders. My more PvP oriented jags usually made due with a single medium shield extender in order to fit the web/scram one really wants on a heavy tackler/dps machine. Not to mention much less expensive rigs - if any.

Didn't notice the 2nd spawn apearing in a bonus room in the plex - so started warping out too late. Then ran into an object (doh!). Needless to say I did not get to warp in time.

In other news, this weekend saw my first invented and built T2 ship. A Claw interceptor. This is an after effect of getting my research alts firing on all pistons (they get me the bpcs) and running some invention jobs from my stockpiles of datacores (man those are running out fast). None the less this represents another sign post in my development as an industrialist.

Ah well my next Jag will be built by myself. Just need Frigate Construction 5...

So you gonna make a blog post about this? "Pain is weakness leaving the body!"

Letrange said...

Yep ... soon as I update my own killboard so they can post -.-;

Incidentally I'm not sure you get just how many proteuses that guy can lose... Had a good laugh about it.

Sorry to hear about Simba buying the farm. There are always new ones anyway :)

About the Claws: oh goody! I now have a supplier :) I'll get you some T2 parts if need be.

About Q's comment: I can't see the kb link as I am at work but damn... this 'tard lost ANOTHER Proteus ?!?! He should give me ISK instead :))

Letrange said...

No no no, that was the proteus loss you heard about

And Road Meat's Loki (which we didn't build)

Saw it on another 'puter...

Oh damn !!! I'm with Q on that one; I wanna hear all the painful details >:)

Queb said...

LOL ... I didn't want that ship anyway? Is that the official AMC response?

I could buy a ton of Loki if I wanted, but I don't own a single ship I can afford to lose :)

Letrange said...

The official response is: those were the ships of the individual pilots involved - they got nailed to rights fair and square (ya tells em to pay attention to the d-scanner...), if you can't afford to loose it don't fly it. Neither pilot woosed about the loss or whined in any fashion and a Road told me to tell em GF, which I did thru the offices of Cerui the next day. So nothing much to report honestly. The only reason they aren't in replacement ships yet has more to do with waiting on the patch than not being able to afford it.
