A Jump Freighter is Not a Toy

If you have ever read some of the shenanigans that myself and hav have gotten ourselves into while in WH space, you know that we are an entertaining bunch:

It seemed like a really good idea at the time

Today I moved a JF through a constellation that has an active Incursion going on. While an Incursion is active, rats at gates are more agressive and stronger than regular nullsec rats. Additionally with the Incursion that we have, you cannot use cynos. This meant that the very shiny, expensive ship had to go through the gate.

There was a miscommunication between myself and my scout James in the destination system. He thought that I was starting in the destination system. This meant that warping to 0 on the gate would get me past the Sansha rats.

I was in fact starting in another system and coming into the destination system that James was watching for me. He was watching three rats some 30k off of the gate and when I decloaked after the gateflash 15k away from the gate, James was quite confused.

[ 2011.06.20 22:42:04 ] Blake > warping to gate
[ 2011.06.20 22:42:09 ] Blake > hope this works
[ 2011.06.20 22:42:15 ] Raath > hehe

[ 2011.06.20 22:43:36 ] Blake > LOL!
[ 2011.06.20 22:43:42 ] Blake > they webbed me and that sent me into warp!
[ 2011.06.20 22:43:43 ] Blake > LOL
[ 2011.06.20 22:43:52 ] James > How did you get so far out?
[ 2011.06.20 22:44:11 ] Blake > man that was the dumbest thing I’ve done yet
[ 2011.06.20 22:44:17 ] Blake > but funny
[ 2011.06.20 22:44:23 ] Blake > haavoc style funny
[ 2011.06.20 22:44:26 ] Blake > good thing they didn’t scram

Thankfully they were not scramming rats and instead made my Jump Freighter warp faster to the station because I was triple webbed.
