Hello, Old Man Star
After my losses last month, I carebeared for a while, grinding missions and ratting in nullsec for ISK. My security status slowly rose to the point where vengeful victims could no longer place a bounty on me (above -1.5), so I have once again returned to lowsec.
But instead of returning to Minmatar lowsec (<3 Amamake) as usual, I grabbed a hauler, stuffed in a Purifier and Rupture, and moved to Gallente lowsec. Why did I switch locations? First, Minmatar lowsec was becoming extremely blobby, making PvP difficult for part-time pirating with no backup. Second, the Python Cartel had temporarily moved to Gallente lowsec to terrorize the Blood Money Cartel and other locals. Third, I had not visited the Tuskers in a very long time.
The decision to bring a stealth bomber was a good one, as it is phenomenal for skirmish warfare. While roaming with a small frigate-sized gang, it allows me to use hit and fade tactics. The gang’s interceptors and other fast ships can easily destroy smaller targets that are a threat to me while I apply DPS to larger targets. I simply stay at 40 km from a target and fire torpedoes; with my dual targeting range damps, ships cannot target me at that range.
