ODB Lesson #3: Don't get arrogant. Unless, of course, you're ODB.

Your friendly local neighborhood ODB Education Specialist here.

So, I've launched on this guy a half-dozen times.

He comes online every single time, usually with less than 5 minutes to go, and says I'll never get his fleet. He tells me that I wouldn't attack him if I knew who he was in uni1. LOL.

Don't ever, ever tell me I'll never get your fleet. It ends badly. And especially don't tell me I should be scared of you because you were a big shot in uni1. If I can take you, I can take you. I don't care who you are in another universe. I'll launch on you there too if it's profitable.

Anyway, so I'd actually been tracking the guy for a blind oracle. I know when he wakes up and when his FRS gets back. So I probed tonight, and his fleet's sitting there. It normally doesn't get back for about 2 hours. He usually logs on 15-30 minutes later.

His fleet was sitting there. The rest is history. 9.5 mil DF, 1.3 mil ore profit, 1.7 mil crys profit, about 28 mil total damage.
