I Can Has Incursion Fleet?

I’m beginning to believe my previous post about me being jinxed with Incursions…

I’ve tried several times this week to get into a vanguard fleet but nobody wants to invite me apparently. I’ve been X’ing up with the Hurricane below:

My Hurricane, Harry Brown

Medium Anti-Kinetic Pump I

Hobgoblin II x5

I think this ticks all the boxes that are required – decent dps, high tracking, webber to help others hit and a passive armour tank that any logi should be able to keep alive (530 dps and 55k EHP with all resists above 60% according to EFT with my skills and cheap ammo) I’ve even squeezed a MWD on there for the couple of sites that require something fast to nip off and do something at a distance.

So what’s not to like?

I’ve asked in the “armour” channel several times what ship fits people recommend but I either get ignored or people say something ridiculously expensive for somebody starting out. Sure when I’ve got a few under my belt and know what’s going on a bit better I can splash out on a faction fit Machariel or a Loki with all the trimmings but I’m not going to drop over half a billion when I don’t even know if it will get much use.

So if anybody reading this has Incursion experience flying Minmatar ships please give me a clue?

Until then I’ll be the one repeating “X, Hurricane, Harry Brown? Please?” in the armour channel…

    sadly I think it has come down to trust issues, now

    First thing to do is make sure you or your corp or alliance are not on the infamous 'blacklist'

    I have been in a couple of 'newbie' incursion fleets in the last little while but most of them are the usual suspects and they are very untrusting of new pilots

      Thanks Mike that probably makes sense.

      I have a couple of corp mates who have been doing quite well out of recent Incursions which is the main reason I have started to try and get more involved. So I'm pretty sure we're not blacklisted as a corp and I don't think I've done anything to screw things up for me personally so it's probably just down to me being an unfamiliar face.

      I'll try and get in a few more fleets with the helps of the corp mates and get myself known that way with any luck!

    I usually hang around incursions with a logi of each flavor (shield/armor) or a command ship. Let me know if you see me online and I will come along for the ride

    It may also be worthwhile going as a logi if you can dude, that way the people who have the trust issues will see that yer there to help. I'd also just suggest general chat in the Incursion channels, let them see yer not a moron.

    Once I fix my SS I'll come out and try and help ya get involved.
