My Moon Trip - iFobbOz Vs Artemis HV

 ;D ;D
Hi Folks, just wanted to share a fun incident.
In v7.0 you need Cobalt. To get it, you need Pentaxid to Warp to the good spots.
So, I thought I'd head off to the PVP Moon in my steel SV (rookie mistake).

As soon as I get to 300m from Orbit Altitude - boom boom boom - it's fireworks.
I'm damaged, can't see what's hitting me due to bad rendering/redraw - but I manage to get out from the carcass of my SV alive.

So I do what comes naturally to me (using my mobility armor boosts) - I "run away, run away" and then look back on the map to see what killed me. And I see a massive Artemis HV from [RoF].  As the shock of getting smoked subsides, I switch to Epic Sniper and take a look.

I see a lone person, scavenging my SV carcass so I fire off a couple of shots. I wait a bit, but no longer see a familiar green arrow on my map.  As I move forward for a closer look, I see the yumminess of "Backpack of Smoke".  How ironic!!! I got smoked by Smoke in a Massive HV - but then i smoked Smoke with my Sniper Rifle.

So at this point I'm LOL, ROFL and LMFAO...I take a few deep breaths to calm down and then check out the backpack.  Due to the insult that I now feel, I take ALL the 4x epic weapons and all the stack of fusion fuel. Oops I'm full, so I swap out my spare steel blocks.

As I continue to ponder the hilarity, I soon realise the HV Tank is unmanned!!! I attempt to find the door or get ready to do damage, but realise I have no Boom weapons :(

The pilot comes back and starts moving the tank in an attempt to find me and most likely get payback...
But I'm in a state of laughter that I didn't die, but got some good loot
...so I log out aka "laff" quit. #badiFobbOz

Lessons Learnt:
When going to a PvP area - gear up properly
Always look for a backpack before going in on foot.
Remember the 5Ds - Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge

"Only in Empyrion"

Oh that was simple...
I logged in the next day, spawned the spare emergency SV in my factory.

...And flew home to adorning fans and flag waving...
Oh no, the reality was #badFob for combat logging.

Smoke and I had a quick chat, and both came to the conclusion we should of probably communicated in chat to have a better PvP experience. :D
