School of Hard Knocks

Been a few long few days, not much sleep as I've been very busy and stressed but while Keira was in highsec doing some shopping I decided to board "the Fifth Elephant" my Sleipnir class Command Battlecruiser and see what was in local, there were a few pilots from the same corp hanging about and I wanted to see what they were up to and if a fight would be available.

My onboard scanner blinked into life and I spotted a Dominix, 2 Myrmidons and a Deimos in the direction of a belt, a few seconds later only one Myrm was left, obvious bait but maybe, just maybe I could warp in, pick it off and warp out quick enough before his support arrived.
Now going 48 hours without any sleep is never a good idea and let the following be a lesson to you.

I warped in at 2okm with the lone Myrm sitting still, it had fresh aggro so I instantly engaged, its shields started dropping and was soon hitting armour, I got too close and got hit by NOS but flicked my microwarp drive into action to gain some distance all the while keeping my fire concentrated on it. his friends came to join so I started to edge away but the Deimos got on me very quickly, webbed and warp disrupted me, I switched fire while surrounded by drones from all four ships. I was being heavily NOSsed and Neuted so my cap was all but non existant, I was going through cap boosters and cycling my Shield Booster with each boost.
I lost point on my Primaries as they were about to pop due to being capped out and almost got the Deimos and one Myrm but alas "The Fifth Elephant" succumbed to the combined firepower of the small gang.

Well played gents, you earned that kill

I returned to my Hangar in my pod with my tail between my legs and sent a message to Keira to pick up a new Sleipnir for me.
My bunk looks very comfortable, I need sleep, the lack thereof has affected my judgement.
