I would love to say last night was exciting and fun in Eve but it wasn't. I joined an Alliance fleet of about 100 pilots to shoot down (said in a not so excited tone) enemy towers. The towers have guns that can shoot you but they didn't do terrible damage to my drake so I wasn't ever in real danger. We never had any resistance so I was pretty much bored the rest of the night. Until I got lost from the fleet. I had my autopilot set for "safest" not "quickest" so I jumped through the wrong gate, in enemy territory no less.
Aggravated and lost I set my destination for AIEU's home system and off I went. The trip would take a long time and only about 5 or 6 jumps would be in 0.0 but being in a Null Sec corp, even High Sec space is dangerous.
I don't mind helping out the alliance even if it is boring but I was in the mood for pvp. I didn't find out the fleet was going to shoot down towers until we got to the first tower. My assumption was we were headed out in the search for blood! I was thinking pvp in a large fleet would increase my numbers. Right now a pilot has about an 80% chance to survive when fighting me. That's not good.
Tonight should be filled with pvp! Every Friday night my corp has a pvp night called Jolly Dice. I love spending time with the guys. I also look forward to Friday nights in Eve because I hold AIEU's NEOS right before the Jolly Dice Op. I get to know the new folk in the corporation and give them a little lesson on AIEU.
I'll let you guys know how tonight went tomorrow.
