Vengeance vs Enyo

Logging in, I jump into my PI stuff to reset timers on extractors. During this, Thestarling is in the process of fighting an Enyo. I see in corp chat the enyo gets away though. Hm, interesting. Well, Star, being so kinda, let me know the location of this Enyo and informed it was Krole. Well, I owed Krole a re-match from our draw in a prior Vengeance vs Vengeance draw. So I finish PI early and undock, warping to the plex.

Mid warp, I load nova rockets and pre-heat the launchers and repper and pop an Exile booster. I know Im going to need it against blasters. Anyhow, I land at the plex, with Krole 190km away. Well, this will be slow. I mention it in corp, and am soon informed that the Enyo is mwd fit. Nifty, maybe we'll close quickly then. Checking velocity, yeah, we will. To prevent overshooting, I angle myself a bit upwards so that the enyo will come at me at an angle as well; which will help me to turn and keep range easier.

Eventually, we get close enough to lock and then quicker, we begin to settle into ranges. With no prop mod this close, my rockets easily hit the Enyo. Im expecting a drone to pop out at anytime, but none do. Hm, ok, maybe he didnt resupply from his fight earlier with Thestarling. Either way, Im glad, because that extra dps would probally have gotten me.

I chew through the shields and armor pretty quickly of the Enyo, but the hull goes slower. I hit about 50% armor at this point and I think this is when he actually overheated his guns because I started dropping in armor a bit quicker now. Luckily, I have thermodynamics at 4 and my a-type repper is a beast module. My launchers were cooled down a bit from when I turned them off at 50% armor, so I re-heated them to get more for this structure bash. Soon enough, the Enyo's hull burst, exposing Kroles pod to the coldness of space. Good for Krole though, as he was prealigned and warped out. Looking at the killmail though, you will see Thestarling. This was definately a solo kill, but he was a dick and didnt dock, whoring onto my KM.

I remembered to loot this time and was happy to find the meta 4 damage control. I wish the repper would have dropped instead of the explosive plate, but oh well, I won the fight! And got a module I can make use of in my own ship! Yay for being a pirate!

On a side note, I recently finished Assault Frigate 5, so that leaves only three more skills that affect my capacitor for my current fit; Propulsion Jamming 5, Afterburner 5, and Fuel Conservation 5. AB5 doesnt directly affect capacitor, but the longer duration AB cycles will help in not using it as much. Not alot of difference, but enough over a prolonged battle; which is where my Vengeance excels.

Below is my current fit, with a resist profile of 83%/85%/83%/91% and cap stable at about 60%, I can handle a small neut or two. Micro managing my modules, I can handle a single medium. Thanks to corpies assisting me in finding this out. The dps isnt amazing, but Im working on missile skills to insrease that capability. I fit the faction web and scram because I have issues with people kiting me out at 10-11km when I have a shorter range scram and I cant stop them. The faction stuff helps in catching them. I also have a few vengeances fit with a CCC rig instead of the missile rigging, which will help more in being neuted and such.

I do use both Genolution implants as well as a 3% cpu implant, but none are needed for this specific fit.

  1. as far as I know, it's not because your friend didn't dock or leave system, but because your enemy didn't dock or leave system.

    1. Ah ok, I am unsure of how the mechanics work on whoring killmails and session changes. But with this specific situation, it would be difficult because I know TheStarling did not dock, and am 90% sure Krole didnt dock either because he didnt have a replacement drone.

      Either way...It really was a solo kill =P
