[EVE Online] I was hanging out in one of our stations in Alliance space when someone asked for help hauling some scrap parts and modules over to another station we have in order to be refined down to minerals. I answered the call and loaded up my industrial-class ship with about 10,000 cubic meters of junk. Away we went.
On the way, the corpmate flying with me asked if I wanted to follow them around afterwards while they blew up some Sansha’s Nation ships in the nearby ‘roid fields. My job would be to collect anything left after the explosions so we could refine it (or sell it in Empire space if it’s valuable).
I agreed so we headed out to a nearby system. He had no problems handling the “rats” single-handedly, while I went about scavenging the wrecks. We were talking about calling it a night, when a new group of Sanshas warped in on us in mid-discussion. I hit my autopilot immediately and my ship started aligning for warp (180 degrees away, argh!). In the time it took to align, the Sansha had me locked and fired missles. One hit, dropping my shields to 30%. The next missle hit, removing my shields completely and also taking out a good portion of my armor. It’s amazing how quickly things can go from good to bad.
I managed to warp out just after the second missle hit and waited for my corpmate to finish them off. I warped back to collect the loot. Checking my bank account, I had earned about 3 million ISK in just an hour or so from bounties. I don’t expect to get a cut of the bounties,
so it was nice of my corpmate to allow me a share. We dropped off the loot for refining and called it a night. New players take note, even you can make money in 0.0 space.
