First Bounty in Venal

I managed a few firsts last night.

I got into my first fleet op of the year.  It seems that Black Legion is up for fights in Venal.  An operation got called, so I put down World of Tanks and joined the fleet.

It was also my first time taking out my tech II fit Rokh in an Alpha Fleet.  My Maelstrom is gone.

I managed to get on my first kill mail of the year when an interdictor got a good bubble up on Black Legion.

I probably would have gotten more than one kill, but for some reason I decided to shift-click to target for most of the fight… which meant I targeted nothing.  Control-click is what I wanted.  I figured that out in time to get one broadside in on a Tornado.  That did 9% of the damage though.

I did also get rounds down range on a bomber later on, but it was gone before my shots hit.  Enough to get on another kill mail. (There is a battle kill summary here.)

And during the fight I got my first bounty payout from the system that came in with Retribution.

Bounty time!

I got a payout for kills just by being in the fleet.  It wasn’t a lot cash, maybe 100K ISK total.  But it was something.

Nothing terribly exciting in all of that, but it was my first time out in a while and my first kill mail since October.

    Ah the Rokh, my first lvl 4 mission ship way back in 07. Man do I wish I had gone Raven, would have made life so much easier. Those T2 425s are fun though.

    Yeah, I built a Rokh back in 2008 when playing around with production, but never flew it in anger. I was already trained up on missiles, so the Raven was not only an easier ship to fly, but I already had the skills.

    Of course, last night there was also an alliance update that included two new fleet doctrines based on armor tanking. So I have that to train up now.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
