Sochicon – Part 2

Ok, where did I leave the enthralled reader gasping for more?  Oh yes, my 2 man army camping a C2 with a POS so full of valuable ships that they look like a dense school of fish.  And we like fish.

If it was just me, I’d camp this frigging hole until I see the locals do “something”, anything, really.  I’d be happy to drop an Epithal, Noctis or whatever.  The flagrant display of wealth and the fact that the only 2 pilots seem to be online 23/7 is tantalizing.  They are watching me, but they can not.  They do not know I am here.

But it isn’t up to me anymore, my Alliance has perked up its unwashed ears.  A POS full of ships, a XL SMA in addition and a PvE carebear corp makes their mouths water.  Yes, yes, its a nullsec alliance with lots of kills, who cares.  Nullsec dudes don’t scare us. They need 100 friends on a gate and someone to tell them when to press “F1” – everything else scares them.  My alliance mates decide to put a second scout into my new hole, now officially names “Sochi” after the upcoming Winter Olympics.  With some maneuvering, I get one of my C5 crew mates into the hole, he looks around and confirms what I had reported – a POS flush with ships and sporting a “death star” configuration.  I mean, guns.  Lots of guns.  Its all “Darkblood”, towers and everything.  Someone spent a lot of money on this place, someone carefully runs this C2 and avoids all conflict, all engagement, all confrontation.
