Mining Op Defense

I logged on for a bit last night and got the call that we were trying to defend a mining op in low sec from pirates. I jumped into my Kitsune Electronic Attack Frigate and immediately flew to the belt.

I was of course too late to help destroy a threatening Vexor but I flew around for a bit and watched the miner work away in his Merlin.

In his Merlin.

His Merlin.

Merlin.

...

WTF?! We had a gang of four including a battlecruiser and HAC guarding a non-mining specialized frigate?! Turns out the guy was a noob and the gang had been tracking the Vexor pilot and decided to stay and guard the Merlin for shits and giggles.

A Merlin. Its hard to think of a worst ship to do mining in. Its not even a cheaper Bantam which at least has mining bonuses. Sigh. Noobs.

  1. Was this guy (the merlin miner) in your corp? If so you guys seem to have some issues with teaching.

  2. Never heard of a miner using a Merlin. Odd. He needs an ORE ship fast.

  3. I can't recall if he was just Blue to us or in our alliance, but trust me, everyone was aghast at the ship choice. :)

  4. What? I mine in my Retribution all the time. It's got 4 turret slots.

    By the way Merlin has 2, and a crap cargohold.
