Hopefully we can share some interesting stories to each other!
This is one of my earliest memories from when I joined RvB back in 2011.
My memory is not 100% but I will do my best! This was when we were stationed in Hagaken/Autaris respectively and I had decided that I wanted to try out the mighty autocannon Ferox!! (Pre hybrid damage bonus). As my time in RvB had been very brief I blindly jumped into a fleet with no form of voice communication. Typing would have to do.
The fleet commander in this fleet was a one Nidodog, someone who seemed to have an air of confidence that was infectious. He had spotted a lone Myrm bouncing about the Hagaken belts.. the sheer audacity!
With my limited knowledge and hunger to blow something up I volunteered to be bait in my Ferox of doom, while the other fleet members mustered a duo of Drakes a Caracal and Duck Butler in a Rifter. Easily enough to down a lone Myrm.
We engaged and things looked super positive with the myrms shields melting down to about 40%.. and then stopping. Completely. Heat was called for but by this time the pesky blues bad brought another two BC's in with a quad of cruisers and my Ferox went down.
So much bait
I had never even realised Myrms could be passive shield tanked!
We eventually got him though..
