Wolf vs Hookbill, or a lesson in situational awareness.

So wanting to try out my shiny new wolf, I set off looking for things to kill.

Round 1. Seeing a Hookbill in the belt I moved in hoping that he wanted to play, he was mwd fit with a tracking disruptor, so cleverly stayed well out of scram range. No amount of jiging got him into my scram range, so  I switched out to long range ammo, and forced him into a longer orbit, at which point I switched off, and warped back to a roid over 200km away.
Round 2. Whilst the above had been going on I had also been setting up my probes on the belt, I waited until he turned his mwd off to get his cap back up, then with a quick fleet warp to zero. The wolfs scram went on, and I started to tear his ship apart.

He rejected the ransom for his pod, then convo'd me a while later, still not quite sure what had happened.
