Today we have a special treat, a short story from fellow MTU Hunter, Oylpann Kumamato. Pour yourself a hot drink, put your feet up, and join him on one of his many adventures.
I was heading back to Simela, my happy hunting grounds, after flying through multiple backwater systems with no luck. Tristis is already in Simela in her trusty CovOps and bazinga! One MTU. She locks it in after 2 scans and warps to it at 100km. Two Battlecruisers are running a mission there, a Ferox and a Drake Navy Issue.
Fast Foward 10 jumps and roughly 8 mins later the Battlecruisers have left grid, and left that dangerous deployable out there. I fleet up my dynamic duo and when Oyl gets in system, I warp to Tris who is now orbiting the MTU cloaked at 30km. Oyl makes quick work of the MTU and after the weapons timer, I dock up in a nearby player owned station.
While I’m looking at the Killmail, I notice that Local Chat had an interesting recruitment link.. from the same person whose MTU I just purged, within seconds of her MTU exploding:
Shortly after, I get an Eve Mail from said victim:
I reply back I’m just doing my job!
They respond that they want reimbursement so I offer what I feel is fair compensation:
I also offered some sound advice (for free!) on future purchases:
Hope you get as good of a laugh as I did out of it.
I certainly did, thank you for the story Oylpann, and I have no doubt we’ll be seeing more of you in future posts. Stay tuned. Also, if anyone reading this has an MTU story of their own to share, please mail me (Pix Severus) in-game.
Furthermore, we now have a new page on the sidebar, MTU FAQ, which aims to answer those questions most commonly received about MTUs and hunting them, check it out.
