The one thing you should always do when living in a wormhole. Is use d-scan. It’s important to use that in low and null sec too since it helps you find targets. But in wormholes you don’t have local. So you use d-scan to check if there’s anyone around with you. Of course a person using a ship with a cloak won’t show up on d-scan, and a recon ship won’t either. But still, it gives you a bit of a warning if you pay attention to it.
We all know this, my corporation mates know this. All this, kind of goes wrong when you’re in a group. Seeing that being in a group usually means, being a bit more secure. Thus you stop caring much about something, especially when waiting. That’s what happened yesterday.
We were going to go out on our daily null-sec roam. Forming up on our null-static and waiting for the rest to join. Now, usually when forming up, we’re in the citadel and ready to go. Not this time, we were waiting for a few guys to log in, right on the hole. For over 20 minutes.
I’m sure that me talking about d-scan a bit higher makes you go “Ooooh, I think I know what happened.”
Right when we’re about to jump through, three sabres pop up right on top of us. Most of us were not quite aware of what was happening so when you then hear the fc jump and get the fuck out. You do just that.
Or at least try to. We lost three ships before we even got in null, in our own wormhole. Hard knocks found us and used our lulled sense of security to get a few kills.
Good fight on them, we were not prepared, not even close, we got our asses kicked. Well, the other guys, I got out of the bubble and was able to warp off. Hooray, still have my Omen.
The moral of the story? Use your d-scan.
Stay tuned o7
