XBL GT: CMDR Ezren
Finally got ganked for the first time. Was headed to Farseer in my Cutter (exploration build) and a black, heavily engineered FDL took me down. I ran the first time, got into SC just after my shields dropped, then they pulled me back out and finished me off (I know, I know, I should have high waked). I get a few hits in the second time, but my shields were gone, so I was toast. Hello re-buy screen.
Got in my FAS looking to get some whoopins on. Finally got to Decait and found my target. Pulled them out of SC and got that whoopin' going. Quickly found the re-buy screen again. CMDR was a good sport about it and messaged me with a couple tips afterwards.
Angered me bit to lose, but it is what it is. They were playing their preferred role. Took their advice and adjusted my build, went out to a Nav Beacon and was impressed by the results. Next time... (maybe I'll last a little longer?)
Well once combat logging is dealt with by frontier, then the community can come up with ideas to further the play styles of BH and missions involving troublesome CMDRS.
As for being ganked... run and high wake? I wish I had decided to fight from the get-go when I was in my Cutter. And I wish I had a fighter pilot I could have utilized. As they say, if "ifs" and "buts" were candy and nuts, we would all have a Merry Christmas. I was just making an engineering run, so I panicked and died. Happens to the best of us.
