Well, I was plexing in a contested Amarr system when an enemy entered the system. I was flying my slicer, cruising along in a minor fortress.
He rolled up in a fleet firetail, jumped into my area and hesitated for a long time. Then his friend entered the system. I jumped out to a random planet.
I decided to return, however, reasoning that I could take him out before his friend got here.
I jumped in right on top of him, locked him, pointed him and opened fire. I was winning, put a web in and I had him pretty good. Then his buddy jumped in, also in a fleet firetail, and he kited off. His buddy and he dogpiled me, pointed and destroyed me. He was in armor, nearly in structure, when I ran out of cap and went down.
From his post battle derision I could probably have won that if I'd been any better at piloting. It's a humbling experience, and a costly one, as my insurance had expired.
Fortunately, I've got the cash and LP saved up for the Slicer II...but I think I'll mission a bit more before bringing it back out for battle.
The guy who killed me's nom de guerre was duc tayp. Charming, these Minmatar slime.
