Seismic Stan is here, he has bought with him "a random and eclectic selection of Noise Suppressors" which range from a "meta0-fitted Tormentor" through to cruisers...
My dual armour rep, microwarpdrive, autocannon Rifter didn't fair well against Stan's Kestrel in the last fight. It was simply too hard to get close and have enough capacitor to run my reppers at the same time. It was just impossible!
I like a challenge though and while the last fight was over quickly, I did manage to get in close. If I could have just kept my warp scrambler on him long enough I might have stood a better chance. That's it. I've talked myself into fitting the exact same fail fit that I just lost with! I swear I can't be sane.
As I warp in, I immediately start approaching the Kestrel. I pulse my microwarpdrive and lock Stan up. Even with my microwarpdrive still active, I'm not able to close in on him enough to active my scrambler.
With Stan's first volley I'm down to 37% shields while he is too far away for me to do any kind of real damage with these autocannons. Once I do manage to get within scrambler range the rascal throws on a webifier, this combined with my microwarpdrive being off due to needing armour rep means that I wont keep within scrambler range for very long.
He's out of scrambler range straight away and is still at half shields. I'm taking a beating, I'm only just managing to keep both repairers active but I'm on my last capacitor boost before it needs reloading. I know that once the module deactivates I'm as good as dead so I make the same really bad decision as I did in the last fight. I activate my microwarpdrive! The very moment I do that my armour is stripped due to the increased signature radius and I have very little cap left.
Surprisingly I manage to get a few more rep cycles from both of the armour repairers but it doesn't matter. My increased signature radius makes the incoming damage too much for the active repairers to handle and I soon find myself ejected from my Rifter.
Drat! At least I doubly know that this is a bad fit! Off I trundle to go to ponder a new one.
