I decided to look into a new favorite ship.
The Incursus seemed like a solid ship so I started working my way into fitting one up.
Alot of theorycrafting later my incursus was born.
A afterburner close range brawler with a resistence mod and an ancillary armor repper.
It played well with the bonusses that came with the ship.
I decided last minute to switch a 2nd resistance mod for a Damage Control
Because I would feel more comfortable dipping into structure every once and a while.
Not much later this became the reason why this post came to live.
First there was a Navy hookbill that died in a ball of fire.
The hookbill lacked the dps to actually hurt me.
Once I was in range, the hookbill couldn’t get out of scram range and died pretty fast.
Next up was a horribly fit thorax that deserved to die
The guy didn’t even got me half shield.
Since I was in that FW plex I decided to stay there.
Not much later an incursus appeared on close scan.
I decided to stay and go for it.
Much did I know this was going to be the closest 1vs1
I would have been in to date.
Check out the video I’ve made.
In the beginning it looked like I would be in for an easy kill.
But then the dual reppers got to work and I noticed I was a bit behind.
I started the ancillary repper,and got back to full armor.
Lost a cycle there because I focussed too much on heat damage rather than looking at the repper.
A derp happend during the fight, Since the previous fights didn’t really
Hurt me much I did not now I had auto-reload on the ancillary repper.
So I lost the ability to use a few extra slivers of armor.
I had to overload my guns again and hope they didn’t burn out.
I was on the losers side for a long time. But in stucture I could make the difference
Heat and the decision to fit a Damage Control saved my ass in this fight.
Who said hull tanking is a bad thing?
A dual armor rep incursus is a tough nut to crack.
But my incursus is up to the task. I’m quite happy with it.
Gf’s were shared in local. Shared a convo with the guy and he said it was one of the closest fights he had aswell.
It’s a name I’ll probably remember for a long time.
I encountered the guy twice in the Stay Frosty FFA aswell.
This time I was in a cheap fitted merlin.
Starting now alot of my time will be invested in training for the NEOII.
I’m looking forward to this.
