Revenge is a dish...

Over on the Mittani's news thingie someone called me out on a post about tears.

"I never provide tears. It's a fucking game, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, deal with it.

Also, Rixx Javix, I know you are reading this, you killed me when I was a newbie miner once. I was mad for awhile. Now I'm in null PvP-ing daily (not because of you, just a natural progression), but it's time for some sweet, cold-hearted revenge.

I am coming for you."


Oh boy. I get a lot of threatening emails, local rage, bounties, and other forms of hate/threat/anger aimed at me on a daily basis. It comes with the territory. I explode people in ships and they often don't really want to be exploded. Despite their presence in space where I happen to be flying. Which is counter-intuitive, but let's go with the facts.

This guy was a "newbie miner" once. That doesn't help things much, for him or for me. I never target a specific kind of ship to explode. As I've explained many, many times here at the magazine, I shoot everyone. So I suppose it is entirely possible that I exploded him once when he was a "newbie miner", cause I have exploded a lot of miner type people. I never do it out of malice, anger, revenge or to 'teach them a lesson'. I really don't think about it that much frankly.

"Now I'm in Null PvP-ing daily". Well that's good. I'm in low-sec (trying!) to PvP daily. (I've been sooooooo friggin' busy since getting back from vacation my Eve playing time has been zilch sadly) He brings this up because he thinks it'll scare me I suppose. He probably doesn't realize that I grew up in Null, my resume is rather solid when it comes to Null space. So fear is not what I think about when it is brought up. Actually the opposite.

His user name is "just got into -A-" which is also just an awesome thing. -A- and I go way back and I've exploded an awful lot of them in my career. I've also fought three wars against them, admittedly we lost all three of those wars. But I suggest that I wasn't a significantly contributing factor to those failures. Yet another reason why I left Null. That whole "not being a significant factor" bit bothers me.

I wish I could tell you that any one of the hundreds of threats I get ever turn out to be anything, but they just never do. Never. No one comes to hunt me down and make me pay. I really wish they would. I'd enjoy that very much.

So, to the former "newb miner" who just joined -A- and wants revenge, I say this. Please, please, please come and kill me. I hang out in Verge Vendor in a system called Hevrice. It is populated by over 150 close personal friends of mine, all of whom will stand aside and watch if you want a 1v1. And heck, I haven't even mentioned all the other pirates in local or in surrounding systems. Some of them might even help you. lol.

Come get me. Please.

  1. I, too, am coming to get you. Not out of revenge, just because I've wanted to. It seems like the cool thing to do now.

  3. I'm imagining Rixx and some random dude dueling in space, with 150 of Rixx's friends (including myself) in a huge ring around them while the Star Trek Original Series fight music plays loudly in the background.

    DUH DUH DERRR DERRR DERRR DERRR DUH DUH DER!

  4. The only time I've had someone come after me with a vendetta was when I was living in high-sec, long before I adopted the pirate life style.

    He wanted to pick a fight with me. I had a few months of experience behind me, with skills spread out here and there and very few PvP encounters. He had 3 years, long enough to learn to fly most any subcap extremely well. I pointed out the disparity, so he agreed to take his myrmidon up against my dominix to even the field a bit, probably expecting an easy battleship kill. I won, and he was upset, understandably.

    After a while of demanding a rematch, I finally agreed to a domi vs domi matchup. I built my ship as a counter to what I believed he would bring. A mwd, heavy neuts, large smartbombs, and a cap-injected active tank. The idea was that I'd stay out of range, pop his drones with smartbombs, then turn in with the neuts and brawl him down after eliminating his offensive capabilities. The fight started going well, with me keeping out of scram range and slowly eliminating drones. But low skills and piloting errors eventually got the best of me, and I was caught. I managed to neut his scram off and pull range for a bit, but my cap booster couldn't keep up, and I was caught again. As I dropped into structure, downtime hit!

    I logged after DT to find my ship intact with something like 280 structure HP left. He felt robbed and sent a few abusive mails and blustery threats about how he'd make me pay. His corp ended up declaring war on mine a few weeks later. They hunted us down and got a few kills, but never as much as that initial myrm he had lost.

  5. Rixx, I'm surprised, for all the time I fought against your lot (Tuskers while I lived there) I never ran afoul of you. I might have to clone down and do that... just because. I used to live in Ouelletta.

  6. Bah, Hevrice. Come out to Placid/Black Rise with your 150 friends. We'll give you some nice fights, and you might even recognize an alliance logo or 2.

    1. Based on how many of those logos I see on our killboard, I'd say we've been visiting pretty regularly. lol

    2. Pretty sure that's our Noob division wandering out in your area, not you coming to us.

    3. Well then, be careful what you wish for :)

  7. I thought the post was flattering to you, Rixx. I was definitely flattered when someone dropped a fairly large bounty on me or when this guy got so mad he made a thread about it http://eve-search.com/thread/1373319-0

    Anyway, I agree with the bit about the tears. Never ever cry publicly. There's no percentage in it. In my day I've lost an orca, an absurdly pimp fit drake and a very shiny pod and sure it's no fun, but crying about it sure doesn't help.

    1. Oh believe me, I did take it that way. What kind of Pirate would I be if everyone liked me?
