4 of a Kind and a Ace in the Hole

Ok so I recently joined the corp Black Rebel Rifter Club, I watch a member of their corps blog, and had a few other people I know say they where an outstanding group. My low sec bone had been itching for a while now, and I figured this would be a great opportunity to go try out a new style of pvp. R1fta specializes in frigate combat and goes out on mainly frigate roams, and the occasional cruiser roam, maybe upshipping to BCs if there is a tasty target within a few jumps of their home system. I have engaged in piracy and low sec battles many times in the past; I also have flown frigates many times in the past, but mainly as heavy tacklers for a bigger fleet or as an insta lock for gate camps. I have never been the best at solo frigate pvp or frigate roams so I take this as a great learning experience in my eve life. Also from what I know R1fta is still recruiting and they have really made me feel at home so if you’re interested in frigate low sec pvp, look us up.

So for my stay in R1fta I have set up a challenge of sorts. Since this is dying in style, and it should give me plenty to write about, I have bought 4 of a number of ships, and i will be keeping track of each one of those ships deaths and kills on my blog. I will also not be flying any other ships than those ships if I can help it. Each of each type of ship is fit differently, some majorly, some not.

A list of each ship i bought for this challenge.

9 of Diamonds
9 of Hearts
9 of Clubs
9 of Spades 

10 of Diamonds
10 of Hearts
10 of Clubs
10 of Spades

Jack of Spades
Jack of Diamonds
Jack of Hearts
Jack of Clubs

Queen of Clubs
Queen of Spades
Queen of Diamonds
Queen of Hearts

King of Hearts
King of Clubs
King of Spades
King of Diamonds

Ace of Hearts
Ace of Clubs
Ace of Spades
Ace of Diamonds

Royal Flush

So far the score stands at 0 losses and 2 kills. I killed a Taranis and a Thrasher in my Wolf (Queen of Spades) yesterday while in a R1fta frigate roam.

I will be explaining my deaths, the reasoning behind my fits, and my kills in coming blogs.

Stay toasty my friends


  1. badass picture. Claw's gonna be tough solo I think, but it should be fun.

  2. The claw is going to be alittle tough, but its got a very similar stat line as the rifter, with a 50% damage bonus vs the rifters 25%. So I should get soem respectable dps out of it.

  3. A great idea! Loving the naming theme too. I look forward to reading how your pack of ships get on out there.



  4. lol I will as soon as i can find some quality time to play and not just enough to tinker with ship fits

  5. I think you're going to have to talk about how these fits vary.

    Also, I feel like the nano-pest should be included in there somewhere if you can manage it. Talk about terrifying DPS.
