Indeed - that was fun to watch and I so absolutely did not notice it in the middle of it.
How do you guys lock up pods? I seem to be able to get 2/3rds through the targeting and juuuuust miss them before putting a point.
1) Something like holding CTRL before the ship pops so you know where the pod will appear on the overview?
2) Can you pre-activate the point so it latches on once the pod is locked (saving me the half second to click it)?
1 - definitely, never not do that.
2 - yes, but only if you have nothing else locked otherwise it will activate on (one of) your current target(s)
It should be noted that whether or not you can catch pods in anything but bubblers or instalockers depends to a pretty large extent to how fast the guy warps his pod, many pod kills happen due to people being slow to warp, if you wait 1 second to click warp there's suddenly a whole range of ships that can catch you
