I went on an RvB ganked roam the other day. There were about 121 people in the fleet. I had tons of fun, despite me not having done much.
When I logged onto my RvB alt the first thing I did was ask in the corp channel if something fun was going on, and I got linked to the fleet. After joining it, joining the channel and setting up my mumble I was ready. Ready to do 22 jumps to the staging system. I wasn't quite in the right fit, seeing that I was just flying one of my Kestrels, like I always do, and it was an Assault Frigate fleet but, I'm a tackle, I was good enough.
After arriving 10 minutes before we'd go out to Null-sec I had my first "woah" thought going. It's been ages since I was in a big fleet so when you warp to the commander and see about 100 people fly around, you'll look at it for a few minutes and just take in the view.
The mumble channel was quite fun too, the fleet was made up of Reds and Blues and there was some friendly banter and shots given to each other. Which made me laugh so hard that my sister came to ask me what was so funny. I couldn't quite explain it to her.
A few jumps into null one of the scouts told us that there was a Talos and some other ships on the gate, so we all jumped in at the same time. Causing a spike in local and probably making them scared. I wasn't on any of the kills due to TDI. By the time I had the Talos targeted he blew up.
But no worries, it was fun.
About 20 minutes later we flew into a bomber, who had just dropped a bomb. I tried my best to burn away from it, but that didn't quite work out. My kestrel blew up, and seeing that we were in Curse, I had nothing close by to get into. But it was getting late and I had to go to work so I called it then and there.
Despite not seeing much action myself, I had a lot of fun in that roam, mostly due to fleet chat, mumble, and the local chat spikes.
When the FC tells everyone to say hi in local, and everyone does, it's good enough to bring a smile to your face.
Stay tuned! o7
