The First Death

Had To Happen Sometime

So it happened, my first death in the wormhole.

I was attempting to roll our C3 static (I’ll go in depth on rolling in other post). I  brought out the Armageddon built for this purpose and dove in for the first of two round trips and found a Bhaalgorn waiting on the other side. I stayed cloaked for a few minutes to weigh my options, then decided my best course of action was to strike first while attempting to slow boat to the hole.

I clicked approached, locked onto the Bhaalgorn, then turned on all my neuts and the burst jammer. I wasn’t able to activate my MWD as he had me scrammed, although I was able to pulse it at times due to the burst jammer causing him to lose his lock periodically. Around this time I noticed a Buzzard come through the hole; I can only guess that he was the one that scouted me approaching the other side and alerted his Bhaalgorn buddy.

I made it to within 2,000 meters of jump range and was about halfway into armor when a Stilleto showed up and locked me down completely. The Bhaalgorn’s nosferatus had drained my capacitor completely, so I could do nothing but watch as they took me down the rest of the way. Right as my Armageddon popped, a Sabre was nice enough to show up and bubble my pod, so that was toast as well.

Now what mistakes did I make? First and most embarrassing, I completely forgot to deploy any drones. My T2 medium drones could have gotten the Buzzard and his scram off of me at the very least, and I also had ECM drones I could have used on the Bhaalgorn. Second, I should have scouted the other side of the new C3 before committing an Armageddon. I had no idea how active it was or what was on the other side. Third, I did this very late at night with no corp mates on for backup. All that combined made this a recipe for disaster, but a learning experience just the same.

I messaged the Bhaalgorn pilot afterwards and he was nice enough to give me his fit. It looked like this:
