Wormholes and

Sometimes things just come together and work a charm. Tonight was one of those nights.

The short story begins with a Veto. Corp roaming gang spread out over around 5 systems, probing for any potential wormholes. Normally our kills in Wormholes are in, kill, and out. But tonight was different...

SmurfR, one of our many capable combat pilots, found himself a wormhole. Personally, I was 9 jumps away unknowingly probing out other wormholes. SmurfR reported that he'd got one, anyway, and that there was nothing in it. He searched then instead for another Wormhole inside the one he was already in. Happily we carried on searching until SmurfR reports that now he is not only in Deep Unknown Space, hes now five unknown system deep, and guess what? Hes found himself a Mining Operation in progress.

The system was Mannar, where we had to meet, and meet we did. We made our best speed to the location and one of our forward scouts had already found the first two Wormholes that SmurfR had used. This sped things up greatly. Excitement on Vent flooded the channel as we heard what was available;

Caldari Navy Raven
Absolution
Hulk
Hulk
Covetor

Hoarder

There were also reports of two more Navy Issue ships at a POS, however this was irrelevant.

Smurf lead us through and we held on the final gate, anxiously waiting for the hit on the probe and the call to jump through. Thanks to the advanced Probing system, we could simply jump the entire gang in and warp.

What was only a few minutes felt like a life time - Rarely do we get such turkey shoots, the most notorious one I ever had being the The Hulmate Massacre. (Worth a Download, honestly, even if I did make the Vid myself.)

Anyway, finally, the call was made and the Wormhole fluctuated, letting each ship pass through. Moments later we were already in warp, and as soon as we landed, we knew we had them all. Our Heavy Interdictor set up its bubble in an instant, my Pilgrim locked straight onto the Absolution, as did our others, but there was little point to this as the damn thing was tainted by a rack of mining lasers. Pods popped and ships exploded, imploded, or just plain ploded, until one left standing - and only because we'd chosen it - the Navy Issue Raven.

Checking his fit with our ship scanner, we knew what he was worth and demanded 600million ISK. Unfortunately for him, he refused to pay and wound up leaving Wormhole space with the rest of his gang - back to empire the fast way.

The loot was good, as you can see by the link below. We headed home the five jumps out of Wormhole space, luckily leaving no members behind, then the long journey back home. Success.

Anyway, I figured I'd share that little moment with you. Wormhole space is a great, great place to be, and very profitable.

Regards,

Izo Azlion
Veto. Corp

Why do people use eve-files? It never works for me (I tried downloaded the "Hulmate massacre" 5 times, had it fail every time, and just gave up), and even when it does, it has frustratingly slow download speeds. I don't understand why you can't just put it on rapidshare or 4shared or mediafire or any of the countless other file hosting sites out there...
