This evening I became locked in JUSTIC BATTAL with one of the most feared pirate warlords known to Eve, THE FEARSOME KANE RIZZEL. A while ago I'd requested a JAGAER ATTACK BOAT HONOUR BATTAL BETWEEN THE FORCES OF JUSTIC AND THE PIRAT WARLORD.
I was on patrol in Metropolis in my Jag when I noticed Mr Rizzel was online I immediately made my way to Gusandall, and we agreed on battle. I warped to a safe, we fleeted up, and Mr Rizzel warped his mighty boat to my police vessel. He landed 15k off and immediately we engaged in a brutal brawl, I had Barrage loaded fearing Mr Rizzel would kite me with a web. We brawled for what seemed like an eternity, my shields holding at around 50% while Kane's were bouncing up and down in a rather disturbing manner. At this point I deemed it a good idea to pop a Standard Blue Pill. Eventually what seemed like a breakthrough happened, Kane's armour started to bleed and was soon stripped.
BUT DANGER DANGER MY GUNS WERE WAY TOO HOT.
I was forced into turning the heat off, I managed to save them from burning out but as soon as I did Kane's shields shot up to almost full again.
However there was a glimmer of hope when fleet chat lit up with
Kane Rizzel > one gun burnt out already :P
Kane then changed ammo, I used the opportunity to fully recharge my shields, I SHOULD OF CHANGED TO FUSION HERE but didn't. Freshly loaded with Plasma ammo Kane's 200mm's began ripping huge chunks out of my shield with my booster barely being able to keep up, on top of this my cap was beginning to run dry as we were both using a Nosferatu. I had to begin pulsing my booster instead of perma running. Also it seemed that Kane was having to pulse his own booster less, and I was managing to take small slithers off of his structure between his boosts.
My own shield was dipping, even with one burnt out gun Kane's Jag was battering my shields and as I hit peak recharge I knew I wouldn't last as long in armour and hull as Kane. It was a race now, as Kane's hull slowly turned red. Then my afterburner turned off. I managed to turn it back on but with this low cap there would be know more boosting for me.
I HAD TO FINISH THIS NOW
I decided it was all or nothing, heated my guns and hoped the FORCES OF JUSTIC WILL LET THEM STAY ONLINE LONG ENOUGH.
ONE VOLLEY – Still online \o/
TWO VOLLEYS – STILL GOING, COME ON LIL 125's
THREE VOLLIES – BOOM!!!
Taking a HUGE 18,141 damage
This was without a doubt the most intense and fun AF 1v1's I've ever had, and it could of very very easily gone the other way.
