Yeah so that stupid loss happened quick enough (see the post before this one).
When I was warping in on the maulus I reduced my orbit range on the condor and forgot to set it back to kiting range afterwards, so when I warped in on a comet it took me right into his guns, ouch. I did manage to pull range again but by then I had made an arse of my TD scripts and it was game over. Well done mate. I went back and had him almost dead when I lost point and he warped, bloody hell, some days you just suck.
I cheered myself up by going straight out and exploding a hookbill in a mission.
Woohoo edit: the comet came back and we had an epic scrap, he was in and out of point range and I had to nail his drones then burn down some serious repping but I got my revenge..
