Being a horrible little carebear nobody, it's no secret that I'm terrible at pvp. In fact, I've never pvp-d solo (at least, not on purpose). But today I got bored and decided to go get killed. This was partly because of how awesome it was when I got separated from a roam gang and killed some tacklers one time, and partly because vagas are fucking useless in gangs so I might as well get the one I had killed. So I decided to go hither and yon and see if I could die well.
(short version: no)
I started at the top of IRC space, saw no ships until down somewhere in russian space with a station-camping rokh and a neut-golem (I lost my ECM drones to the latter). Logged off for the night somewhere in southern russian space, and in the morning decided to make my way toward highsec. I eventually (after several detours to avoid cynabals camping my out gate) hit a highly populated station system somewhere in scalding pass or wicked creek. There were a bunch of people sitting on the undock - no big deal, they can't hit me anyway - so I buzzed around a little and a ceptor approached me.
This is when I learned that a vaga with 220s and a tracking enhancer can't hit a ceptor orbiting at 20 km.
I got out - he warped off or something - and headed to the out gate. Jumped through just as a tackle-heavy enemy gang was landing on the other side. Reapproach, overheat, MWD. I got back through with half shield, but some tackle - and more importantly, target jammers - jumped in and caught me on the other side.
It was fun, other than not getting any kills, and I learned some important things that I never would have otherwise -- what works, what doesn't, what to avoid. I think I'll stick with hurricanes in the future though; not being able to kill a ceptor makes vaga pretty useless.
