EVE Online Republic Fleet Firetail Solo PVP

Featured

Since bullying mega-alliances solo in a t1 faction frigate is apparently my thing, I decided to keep the ball rolling by sharing the skirmishes leading up to the third flight of the Penetrator.
This is the kind of thing that makes the writers get all excited and quivery.

This here’s what they call a “pirate ship,” repurposed from a factional warfare fighting frigate. Instead of looking for 1v1 solo frigate pvp fights, pirate ships look for victims of opportunity.

Going deep into enemy territory solo is usually difficult to do in most regions, due to the residents guarding their stargates. With a handful of ships, restricting access to the systems for a single frigate is usually simple.

And for the solo frigate pilot in EVE Online, these gatecamps are brutally efficient. There’s usually a tiny window of opportunity to escape instant death.

Alone in a single frigate, I somehow managed to slip behind the stellar barricades and stab directly into the dirty, unwashed underbelly of Pandemic Horde.

And it stinks in there.

I didn’t really even do that much damage, or so I thought. A little time goes by, and I see some reactions:

Well I’ll be goddammed! I guess the whole alliance was overmatched against the big bad Hannibal wolf!

So I decided to go a little deeper and show the prequel to the Flight Of The Penetrator 3, lol, because fuck ’em!

Every kill counts!

It felt really good to kill a Rifter, and an Algos, and a Crucifier, and get away with each before Praxises, a Svipul, and an Arazu could catch me. Especially since they were all PH.

EVE Online Solo Frigate PVP | Rifter vs. Slicer

EVE Online Ships Solo Frigate PVP

Back in the day I caught this slicer slippin’ way out of bounds. I was a little overmatched in firepower, but had lots of confidence. Without hesitation, or transversal, I risked everybody on board to seperate the enemy crew from their vessel.

I probably wouldn’t do that again. Facetanking artillery/beam weapons is not adviseable. I just had a feeling this time.

Usually what you want to do is establish an orbit around ships like that, to try and disrupt the tracking of their turrets. If you can get within range, it usually works. The Imperial Navy Slicer can be a fairly quick vessel, so it’s a gamble trying to close range at an angle.

So I gambled and closed range directly. In retrospect, taking a tech 1 frigate into a fight against an enemy Navy frigate is a bad idea.

The Crucifier is one of the Amarrian Navy EVE Online ships

Every kill counts. Some people like to do it in groups, but I like going one on one. Try solo frigate pvp in EVE Online if you dare.
