I didn’t get a screenshot of us in formation or anything because that would require us to fly in formation…And that’s really hard.
Got a message, last night, from Valthonis on Discord that Dazik and Dregg0r were flying around in Elite and asked if I wanted to join. DELIGHT! It was a wild and profitable couple of hours. Both Dazik and Dregg0r had upgraded their ships since the last time I flew with them last week. Dregg0r was flying a Viper MkIII and Dazik was rocking a Viper MkIV. The MkIV is a little slower than the MkIII but it can take a lot more hits before it has to back off. Valthonis is still zipping around in his Eagle…but it’s a tricked out Eagle and he knows how to use it. It’s a deadly combination.
We were a force to be reckoned with. We took out a pair of bounties, both with the last name of Jones. They weren’t in a wing and I don’t know if they were related or not…but I like to think they were brothers on a crime spree that only we could stop.
Criminals cowered when we focused our scanners on them.
Except this guy.
This guy whooped my ass and his buddies put the hurt on us. Now that I think about it, I think only 2 or 3 of us were engaged against a wing of 5. We’re ballsy like that.
I asked Valthonis, who was hanging out at the station for a bit to see if he could see if the canopy showed damage. He said he couldn’t see anything super different.
And that’s a little disappointing. I’d like to see more damage modeling on the ships. You can lose whole sections in Star Citizen.
I went hunting with Kadak last night and we both took a beating from an Anaconda. You can kind of see damage but it’s not near as bad as I think it should look when you’re down to 5% hull.
Kadak had his canopy blown and died because his auto-dock module put him in a queue to land and he didn’t have enough time to turn it off and override. I say it was karma for laughing at me for dying 2 minutes earlier when I was down to 10% hull and an NPC slammed into me. Jerk.
Fly safe, CMDRs.
