*sigh* there's always one

One of the more annoying things about being in charge of a high sec alliance is the way people don't listen to you when you say "Watch local and use your buddy list". One of my pilots just had a hard lesson in PvP. A totally avoidable loss of a sisters scan launcher. The opponent's corp is down to a one man corp - probably using his alt as a scout. Still flying in a Tristan. But he keeps moving and he's avoiding our better pilots quite handily.

My PvE pilots still don't get that if the enemy is flying a frigate and is avoiding engagement you don't bring a Drake....

/me knocks his head against the wall...

The rest of us are in Assault frigates and such. Note to self - get into interceptors before the next war....

Interestingly my earlier work on getting into AF's is proving to be prophetic whenever we get into a war, those who pushed on to BS and BC for mission running are proving not to have any chance against faster nibler opponents we most often fight in these high sec wars, not to mention they have totaly the wrong fit for any real PvP battles on their usual ships... My income may be gimped compared to a pure mission runner but at least I'm not just a fat target whenever a war comes arround.

Let this be a lesson: Don't neglect the frigates no matter what you end up flying.
