Well, funny how fate has a way of beating you with a stick.
Only yesterday I read about MC’s titan kicking some serious arse, and hoped (is that the right word?) to see a Titan’s DD going off.
Well, yesterday I got my wish… and lived to tell the tale.
We’d been running around The Forge, M-O, P3, hitting Hydra and Morsus Mihi (who seem to be a major player and majory of Hydra’s), getting some quite respectable kills. Hydra in the main seem to fly solo a lot, and it’s costing them heavily. However, it’s early on in the war, and in major alliances there are always people who think they know better and that it won’t happen to them.
Anyway, we were all in small, fast ships, and happened to be in M-O being the usual pain in the arse. We’d just killed a couple of Drake Battlecruisers, when a ship suddenly appeared…. it was a capital ship. My overview told me it was a Ragnarok piloted by Deki, but I had no idea what a Ragnarok was. Which then made me wonder why our FC was screaming at everyone to jump out. Fortunately, we’d all deagressed from the latest kill (30 seconds earlier, it would’ve been different) and jumped out.
As we left M-O, we saw the pretty lights of the DD starting to fire up and I started wondering if the mystical properties of the weapon would somehow drag me back and engulf my ship with raw power, smashing the shields, melting the armour and ripping the structure apart.
However, the wecome space of Taisy appeared, and around me over the comms, came sighs of relief as it turned out everyone had jumped through, and we’d had no losses.
Now I knew what a Titan looked like up close, and felt pride that it was a Minmatar one too.
