SE/Coven/R.OL are blue to everything and everyone around them.

Word on the street (EN24) is that SE/Coven and their pets have reset -A- and co.

R.OL as usual will remain blue with everyone around them to further their botting agenda.

Back when i was a bigger noob then now, i was in a pot head alliance that played in Stain, and we seemed to always be 5 vs 20ish, but those ruskies still failed, wonder if that is changed in the past?

yep, stain reset -a- n that, they were boxed in by blues and this being a roaming alliance it meant death. Quite suprised they waited this long tbh. Its happened before and each time the bears in stain and impass suffer but its purely for roaming purposes rather than any play at politics, at least afaik.

Stain is quiet, with 2 little exceptions such:
T-NN pocket because is entry system from low-sec, docking games at station and cynomacking hunter all day long.
J-AYLV pocket where EXE. was settled, but they dont move beyond T-8 system.
There are also 3-4 nonaffiliated corps around systems with NPC agents, who quickly log off when see any fleet larger than 2 ships.

Dropping a titan on a drake? :psyduck:

Also i guess its more because SW has nothing else to do right now. Kicking on AAA would lead ppl to believe the rumrs of a deal with DRF so they focus on cleaning up their living room.

That titan dying to a bait drake made me laugh IRL.

Just like those low sec supercarrier kills... Why is it that people not in any major alliance are always scrubs and lose their supers over the most ridiculous ships? (kind of self-explanatory but w/e)

Took a road trip the other day in my Loki and blob or run was the order of the day. Came in through Delve/Period Basis and headed for DSS in the top right hand corner of the 2D map hoping to hit HED-GP with a diversion or two along the way.

RPS - Romanians - blob. T-8 - Coven - blob. 37S - bunch of different corps - blob. So I turned back. Sat in 42- for half an hour and watched 2 people getting repped by a carrier playing with a chinese(?) blob, quite funny to watch as the blob did not know what the hell to do. Left unimpressed to say the least.

Actually there is a lot of activity in R-IZDC Constellation. After Romanian Legion lost 2 moms, (covered here: http://www.evenews24.com/2011/10/06/video-romanian-legion-hot-dropped-by-raiden-in-stain-sept-4th/), they came back and finished all towers (http://kb.romanian-legion.com/?a=alliance_detail&all_id=913), to kill or to lost more caps. They consider Stain as training ground for newcomers; this is why you find their blobs in RPS. And Coven finest are deployed in Feythabolis, all you saw were noobs and alts, no wonder they stay in packs.
Stop cry about blobs and go on Sisi if you want 1 vs 1 tournament style fight.

Can see nothing much happens in these areas, do not really blame people for not wanting them but yeah, whatever.

Started with an attempted attack on a Cha Ching PLC hauler escort, suspected SBU anchoring.

We then moved onto Esoteria and came across a Raiden and Co gang, we escalated with a few more people after the initial fight.

If you want to improve the op, an easy way is to add in entities that live and give em a blurb about what they're like. Though I'm p sure you guys are a WH corp who just kinda plopped out in that area and blapped people vOv.

Unless I'm mistaken, VoC's a wormhole-based alliance of corps that have raided nullsec daily for ~2 years with decent TZ coverage, partially as members of Occupational Hazzard under contract/with AAA as blues. It's not rare they they plop out of w-space and bag some kills, they just also kill people in w-space & lowsec. ;)

In short kind of.

The original corp is Aquila Inc, we have been doing daily raids in nullsec since the day I joined. VoC did not exist until earlier this year, it was primarily created for ATX as we joked about giving it a try. Volta and E-R are in-fact ex members of OH, we had close relations with Volta at the time and start to fly with them under the blue list, eventually we joined OH with promises of hit and run merc work, we would make money and lots of good fights would be had. Aquila got so pissed off that we eventually left OH due to the massive blue list, every null sec would consist of blues regardless of regions. It got to the point I just started killing blue ratters out of boredum, after I brought up the serious issue of blues to the rest of Aquila directors, I stated that if the blue list is not gone or we do not leave OH by the end of the week I am leaving. Others backed me up on this, including the current CEO, since everything in Aquila is a join decision among everyone, he had to go with the majority vote.

We left OH, keeping in contact with Volta members through different channels and comms. He who shall not be named, refused to reset OH's blue list as AAA fed him isk and free ships. The alliance slowly crumbled and thus, Volta and E-R approached us with the idea of creating the Alliance.

It eventually got done, we merged and formed VoC not long after OH completely folded with B2K being the old corp left in it.

BLOOM, the newest alliances to the corp I am not sure of, pretty certain they were also in OH. Regardless of what anyone says we are not made up of just OH members, a fair few of Volta and E-R left the corps before it was pulled from the alliance.

Anyways, /story.

P.S, some things might be off, I took nothing to do with OH and hated the leader and most people in it. I sat happily in my WH while everyone else went out to blob and shoot structures.

The night started off like any other does, logging in and probing. We probed down a null hole that lead to the true ass end of Stain, so we went out looking for some kills. After a few reports of people warping off, our scout managed to tackle a Drake and a Raven, so we all scrambled to get into ships and go gank some ratters.

http://www.applied-agoraphobia.com/killboard/index.php/kill_detail/488/
http://www.applied-agoraphobia.com/killboard/index.php/kill_detail/495/

Our DPS was anemic, but we slowly worked through the Raven first. As he hit structure we had some kind of derp with points, but we managed to get a point on him again before he warped, then the drake went quietly. At this point, we decided we'd get into some shield stuff and go camp a gate. While we were arguing about 1400mm vs 800mm Tornado fits, a gang showed up. So we went to fight them, but as we moved, they did too. After chasing them for 9 jumps or so, we gave up and setup on a gate. I poked into their public chat and asked where they went. After a bit of hemming and hawwing, they said they weren't going to fight us because we had better ships and we were setup on a gate. I said fine and told everyone to align out to go home. As soon as I did, they jump into us. Hurrr, not gonna fight eh?

Our gang comp at this point was a Sabre, Scimitar, Naga, Tornado, Hurricane, and Falcon(who reshipped to take on their blackbirds). Their gang, although I don't have exacts, I think was 2x Blackbirds, 3x Exequrors, 4x Ruptures, a Thorax, Legion, Stiletto, Slasher, and I think a few Mallers, but not certain. I agree, we were in better ships, so I wouldn't have blamed them for not showing, but since they did, pew pew time.

I burned for range and called the Rupture who decided to put a web on me primary. He melted quickly, so we moved onto the Logi. Their gang burned straight for our Falcon(no shit right?), but I was able to keep him up no problem. Meanwhile, we burned down their Exequror, then another. Half way through one, we moved onto a blackbird who strayed too close, then finished off the Exequror. They warped off at this point and for some reason we derpped and didn't have point of the Legion. We'll pretend it was us giving them props for bringing the fight.

Quick BR for the fight that just went down in D-FVI7 in Esoteria;

Anyone following events in the South will be aware that in the past couple of days DD and friends have gone on the assault in Esoteria to take advantage of a disintegrating HBC; Tonight was the first set of iHub timers to come out and the scene was set for a guaranteed fight. We formed up a joint fleet with INIT., WALLT, TROLL, CHICA, ENTRO, ED with a second fleet primarily of EMP and spillover from the first and made out way haphazardly to D-FVI7 where a 40+ man bomber fleet from Test was waiting.

DD + Friends were bang on time and portalled into system as it became vulnerable, while on the other hand we were all still being unfashionably late and portalled to the D-F gate in 0-O and prepped to jump in. RUS setup at 100k from the in-gate as we arranged our ping spots, bonus commands and probes. We were wary of the TEST bombers since although TEST is still blue to INIT. we were running a combined fleet where the remainder was all neutral to TEST...*collateral damage* and all that.

TEST bombers made a run on the DD Rokhs and we called for INIT. frogs to jump in and load, clearing tackle and aligning to the hostile Rokhs ready for MJD. With the in-gate defensively bubbled, we called all allies to jump in while sending tackle for the DD Rokhs which had MJD'd out after the first bomb run from TEST. TEST made a second bomb run on the DD Rokhs who then warped off to a planet and we gave pursuit. Our hero dictors bubbled them and allowed us to land at 0 and the brawl was on.

We hadn't planned for the fight to take place at the planet, but our void bomb crew got into position almost immediately and rained voids down on both our fleet and the DD Rokhs which were entangled. We lost a couple of dudes as they landed but as soon as the voids hit, we were confident it was game over for DD. We pumped our frogs with cap boosters, re-established hardners and locked scrams. Our drone-assist proteus' was vaporising Rokhs every 4 seconds while SR BS and allies in Apocs were working their way through their own target lists.

TiDi was amped up with seconds feeling like hours...we popped cyno and brought in triage; DD responded in kind almost immediately and brought in about 20 blap dreads. We managed to save one of our Archons through mad reps but lost 2 before we could neut and kill their Dreads. With the subcap balance firmly under control, everyone within range was scrambling to login supers to whore on dread kills (although I think few were quick enough to make it). At this stage most of the DD Rokhs were dead save for those who managed to escape while we turned our attention to the dreads.

In parallel. TEST bombers were on the scene bombing RUS and our allies alike under a watchful eye although I could see they were doing their best to steer clear of the INIT. frogs (<3). In the confusion of the melee we started taking bomb damage from TEST and had cycled through our sentries with all of them in hull. At this point I called to haze any test bombers as they were now representing a real threat to our fleet (sorry dudes).


After that it was an uneventful killing of the SBU's and reffing a DD staging tower.

GF to RUS for bringing it tonight in odds which were not in their favour; things could easily have gotten pretty ugly for us on the jump in where our losses could have been significantly higher.

* Sorry for killing Test bomber bros but it had to be done.
* <3 to Krom...you took some impressive reps before our drone bunny said NO.

GJ to all allies of the coalition that is not a coalition.

Kills are still coming but this BR shows the most of it:

http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18490


With the loss of TRIBE, Raiden, and TEST the Russians tried to take advantage of our disarray to try and take space in Eso once again by SBUing 3 or 4 systems. The remaining members of the HBC (Soon to be a new coalition name) pinged, mailed and formed up. From my standpoint It was an interesting fight for me because I was listening to team speak on the way to work with a laptop and air card only to here JD form our supers. We need you now. So being the epic space nerd I am, I quickly pulled over and formed our supers, so that we could roflstomp their dreads. That being said. Fighting -DD- has always been a pleasure because they always bring one hell of a fight. However, this was way into our prime time and they payed for it.
Gud Fight to everyone involved.

As of now you can consider the HBC dead with TRIBE, TEST, and RAIDEN having left it. That being said a new coalition has been formed consisting of TROLL, CHICA, ENTRO, WALLT, INIT, EMP, CYNA, NSPYS, ED (Excuse me if I forgot someone). To be honest, losing TEST has actually helped us clean up a lot of the issues that came from an inactive lead alliance who is having trouble with stability (ie.. three leadership changes and a fourth on the way). Sort still is our glorious leader and a lot of changes have occurred which has helped us organize and operate together more efficiently. Although we all miss our bro's from the old HBC nothing really changed it is just business as usual. For now we have not named our new coalition but one will be forthcoming soon. EVE 24 News has posted a lot of propaganda about how the resets are leading to open war but to be honest I don't think so (Makes me sad).

Sorry for the multiple battle reports this fight was a running battle through 3 systems

First System (http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18524)

Second System (http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18523)

Final System (http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18525)


DD+Friends SBU'd 0-O6XF. The Coalition pinged, mailed, and formed a mixed fleet of Froggers, Foxcats and various support. It was a little bit of a hectic form up because we merged fleets/comms only 5 minutes prior to the opening shots of the fight. This kept our Logisitics from merging into a single group hurting us in the opening to the fight.

Anyways upon cynoing in on the station supported by triage DD+Friends warped in at 100 in sniper Rokhs. The fight commenced with the froggers aligning and jumping onto the rokh fleet (Micro Jump Drive), while the Apoc Fleet Pinged out. At this point the fleet got really dicey because the logi pinged out altogether and went down to support the froggers while the APOCs upon landing were bubbled and the rokh fleet Micro Jump Drived within 30 of us. This wouldn't have been a problem except the majority of the logi was down with the froggers who were ripping apart the enemy logistics. Finally, with the enemy logi either out of range or dead the froggers hopped over to us using their Micro Jump Drive, while the logistic pinged over to the APOCs. Reps finally began to hold and we were alphaing Rokhs.

Finally, they warped off and our hero dictors got a bubble on them and we landed at 0 allowing our APOCs and Froggers to rip through the Rokh fleet. We began cutting through them until their MJD was prepped again. At this point it became a running battle through gates and to moons. Going through 2 other systems anywhere we could tackle a large group of them, they died.
Finally we returned to 0-O, killed the SBU and headed home.


Sorry for the multiple kill mails I couldn't get them all to sink together. Anyways another success for the Unnamed Southern Coalition.

Hey all, I figured it was about time I would write up some of the fights we've been having in the regions mentioned in the title.
Please feel free to move this into a previous thread if you feel its appropriate - I started a new one as they were all individual threads.

These battle reports will be prom the perspective of Game Over. But feel free to post your own perspective of the fight if you were involved, it's always good to see the thinking of each side. If you could please stick to the following format when posting it will help keep things clear for those viewing as to see who was involved and the date etc.

I will kick-start the tread off with a couple of recent fights we've had. Which I will write up in the following posts.

Date: 5th May 2013
Location: HIX - Period Basis
Involved: Game Over. v Tribal Band


With the return of TRIBE to their homeland and ourselves derp'ing a couple of enyo gangs recently, we decide that it's time to explore other gang compositions to deal with the increasing numbers that we will inevitably be fighting. Unfortunately it is goodbye to the enyo gangs that we've been having so much fun with (See below for br's), for now.

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17432057


We have a theorycrafting session with our high council and decide that to go forward, we should look into adapting an old fleet comp that Hax. and Entity. have used together before a couple years previous under a different alliance banner, see br below.

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=8074716

We had a lot of fun with it then and -we hope- it would still be viable now. With tweaks made to the fittings and the composition, the high council orders that these doctrines are to be purchased, fitted and ready to be flown by the end of the week.

We get intel that TRIBE are staging a moving op and that local in HIX is bouncing up and down by the dozens, with capitals and subcaps warping to and from their station. We decide form our our mighty Sleipnir gang and mobilise on the double. A few systems later we are a couple of jumps from HIX, with our scout + links already in place. We have been somewhat scouted we believe so we decide to hold and burn an alt ahead to anchor a wall bubble off their station to stop incoming traffic from reaching the docking ring. Little do TRIBE know of our plan in the hatch, our alt - piloted by myself Oli Robbo, is in place and ready to anchor the bubble and spring the trap. Alt decloaks, bubble is jetisoned for corp, but there is a problem.

"You do not have the required skills to anchor this object, Anchoring level II is needed".

With 130 hostiles in local and ships in view on the station the surprise is gone. I admit derp on comms like the scrub I am, laugh, pull in the bubble and Warp off to a safe cloaked. Our chance gone or so we think, we decide to jump the hictor in to the system and just sit in the spot with a bubble up on the off-chance something comes in. To our surprise, as the hictor is in warp to the spot our scout on their beacon pos signals that an Archon has just entered the system. Perfect timing for our hic to bubble up. Our scout confirms the Archon is picking up speed and warping to the station. We all jump in and warp to our hictor. The result follows:

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17638778

As the Archon dies with his friends undocking, but not helping - 130 hostiles still in local it emerges that the pilot had been having an argument with a Game Over. member for two weeks or so regarding how bad we were as an alliance, compared to TRIBE. Some chat logs of TRIBE alliance chat were posted to us later for some extra lols.

We decide to stick around for a little longer to see if they hope to get revenge and soon enough we get intel that they're looking to fight, so we get ourselves in position on the undock. True to our intel, they start undocking - a TRIBE thanatos already chilling on the undock with us, they know our position and our logi's.

Their fleet consisted of around 50-55, with roughly 7scyth, 3scim, 5celestis, some oracales, canes and about 15/20 or so rokhs, the result is as follows:

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17664182

As we lost our dictor at the start of the fight before the carrier and nothing during the actual midst of battle, unfortunately the battle report isn't true to the engagement.

That looks hella fun, and v. nice job.

What are your thoughts on artillery sleipnirs? They have more range projection than regular AC sleipnirs, and more alpha vs concentrated reps, while maintaining passable dps (~600).

Date: 8th May 2013
Location: CW9 & Across three systems - Period Basis
Involved: Game Over. v Tribal Band



A couple days later, we get intel that Tribal Band are bored and clearing their back yard of an old C0VEN Infrastructure Hub. Using a couple of dreads and three carriers, with a support bomber / oracle fleet.
We decide to again mobilise as quick as we can, and we send a ping out for Armor Hacs.

A little while later with the Rev in siege we are burning and meet some of our local friends Darkness. on the way as we anticipate a couple extra numbers will be needed. We form up on the border of period basis, our fleet consisting of 25 or so plus a couple of link alts and alt scouts. We get scouted early so decide to burn best speed to destination. Our two hics at the head of the charge.

A couple of jump out of destination we get intel that they're moving their support fleet to our ingate in CW9 and that the dread is still in siege. Our hic jumps in, the hostile bombers are on the gate with other mixed support.

We decided to jump the rest of the fleet in as our hic bubbles up and round one begins - the insta-popping ensues.

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17682194

The remaining hostile support fleet scatter, but unfortunately as our hic had entered local, the Rev had exited siege and jumped out along with the other capitals. We decide to give chase and head to HIX anyway to see if we can pull a similar trick to the other day. To our dismay TRIBE were wise to our tactic and not much else happens for twenty minutes or so. As we're deciding to call it a day and head home we gain intel that they are re-shipping into Apoc's with logi and lots of ewar to come and cleanse their homeland. Not wanting to fight on their station with their reported numbers - around the 80 mark, we decide to exit via ZU- and project the image of leaving.

We enter ZU- and form up on the gate and TRIBE follow as expected. As they enter local we bubble up, but they warp in at a ping 200 or so off of the gate we're on. Not knowing if they will bounce down to the gate or not we hold for a minute or two, eventually bouncing down to us and round two begins.

We loose a shield fitted huginn from Darkness. and one of our Guardians due to the guardian pilot's incompetency, but obliterate all of their ewar and the majority of their fleet forcing the remaining 30 or so to scatter. GFs were put in local and we decide to pop wrecks as we aligned off to head home. However after warping to our exit gate one of our loki pilot's encounters lagg and gets tackled by a hero TRIBE malediction at a ping above the HIX gate. Quite rightly TRIBE are quick to ascend.

During this we decide to bounce back to the gate once we have landed in the hope of saving our loki pilot, but as we land the loki is destroyed. They scatter again and we decide to jump with those that had already cleared aggro to tackle what we can on the other side of the gate for round three of the remainder of their fleet:

It is to be noted that the brave capsuleer of Amarr Absolution is on the field in all three of these encounters in his Bhaalghorn pirate battleship. Utilizing the most of cutting edge technology such as micro jump drives and multiple target spectrum breakers to evade our tackle on several occasions.

-->Fights well comped Sleipnir fleet
-->In a shield fleet
-->Shows up in foxcat
-->Is a member of tribal band.

That looks hella fun, and v. nice job.

What are your thoughts on artillery sleipnirs? They have more range projection than regular AC sleipnirs, and more alpha vs concentrated reps, while maintaining passable dps (~600).

We did consider this, but aside from the alpha the dps is pretty low and they can be easily countered with td's.

Date: 9th May 2013
Location: HIX - Period Basis
Involved: Game Over. v TNT v Tribal Band.



A day later, and still questioning why TRIBE wanted to go for three rounds with the Ahacs, we are hungry for more action. We decide to form up again with ahacs on the off-chance that Tribal Band want to play again. Our friends from Darkness. Join us again and we meet on the outskirts of Period Basis to venture towards HIX.

As we are en route and only a couple off of our destination we get wind of a 100man CVA T1 cruiser gang or so, entering EIMJ and causing trouble for our sparring companions TRIBE. With HIX looking relatively quiet we decide to head that way to see what's going on, we move a couple of jumps to find out that the majority of their gang is comprised of Caracals, with the high alpha from the numbers they have and the caracal's kiting ability we're not to keen - we pursue anyway to see if we can cut them off and force them to jump into us. However we are late and we loose sight of where they are going - we assume NOL- in Delve and we let them carry on their merry way.

Still keen for a fight we are unsure as to where to go, luckily we get intel from TRIBE communications of another gang that size belonging to TNT in HIX. Similar to Greenpeace we decide to set our course for the mean TNT to rid our waters of overfishing. With the added hope of a three-way as communications indicate TRIBE are forming up their own 80ish man gang to retaliate against TNT.

We arrive in local before TRIBE are fully formed. TNT already pursuing the ownership of local chat rights we align to the station and declare that we will rid these vermin from our native sparring grounds. Our scout indicates that TNT have around 80 or so T1 cruisers, mainly comprising of ruptures and around 16 Exequors. We get a warp in and begin the mahem. Immediately off the bat the merciless Tactical Narcotics Team decide to primary the space pilot Oli Robbo, and bring myself down to low armor - Luckily I was able to counter their target calling with an anticipated fifteen or so broadcasts for armor while they were still yellow-boxing. Their choice of initial primary could have been coincidence or it could have been something to do with my history with TNT ;)

The fight underway, and surrounded by chaos, we are holding reps -ok- while my zealot is back to full armor, slowly chewing through their logistics, we move into a closer position right outside the undock to apply MAX DPS as Tribal Band decide now is the time to join the engagement. They begin to undock a mix of talwar class destroyers and 100mn vexors - unluckily for us we are in the middle of the tow gangs, and already taking aggro from TNT, TRIBE begin to focus us too - we burn out (lol ahac), and make some range to alleviate the dps, and loose a zealot in the process.

TNT then begin to focus TRIBE as we are out of range and they're Auto fit, so we come back in and continue the free for all. A few ship explosions later Game Over. Hold the field and we begin looting what wrecks are worth looting while popping the others.

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17698619
http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18515 - show's the numbers from the Game Over. perspective.

It is to be noted at this point that the resident Entity. Ishtar specialist Eric Underwing spied an opportunity mid-fight for looting a ship that was most thoroughly out of place, a Tengu class stategic cruiser with a net loot drop of around 1.4b.

http://entity.killmail.org/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=17697343

We loot the tengu wreck and get the drop safe to an link alt.
After the majority of the wrecks are looted we begin to head home. We hear information that TRIBE have formed up yet another gang on the quiet that plan to cut us off, on our way home to bring glorious valour to the Tribal band name.

Their gang consists of around 80-115, our intel is sparse but we do know that they have more zealots than we have members in fleet with around 8 or so logistics and roughly 10 celestis, fit with damps with 15 or so talwars thrown in for good measure. We decide to burn best speed back to stain in the hope of beating them to it, but props to TRIBE, they successfully cut us off, and we eventually are cut off by them.

With the TRIBE gang blocking our way on one side of the gate, with our gang on the other side we wait and hold for them to jump into us. Our intel informs us that they are jumping just the talwars only into us to get us to aggro. Naturally with no way out we decide to take our chances and begin to pop the brave talwars. After chewing through the majority of them the remaining hostile fleet jump in.

The fight begins well for us, we are chewing through their celestis' while remaining reps, however as the hostile numbers slowly enter local and become organised, more damps are placed on our logi. We are holding the reps fine on the ships we are able to lock in time, but our logi is having a problem locking the ones that aren't locked in time to apply the reps - due to the damps from the hostile celestis.

It's called that our reps aren't holding, so we decide to turtle up and de-aggro on the gate while trying to keep as many alive as possible. We eventually loose a fair few to Tribal Band, but none the less it was inevitable and good fights were had all around.

We also safely got the tengu loot back home which helped to alleviate some of the losses, but it was a good couple of fights and Tribal band eventually brought the numbers to overwhelm.

So, after being unable to sleep I decided to get up at 5 in the morning and see what kind of pilots we had online at the god forsaken crack of dawn. Anyways, our CHICA bro's decided to have a lawl and dropped SBU's in the TRIBE systems down in Paragon Soul, our brave Chica brethren who lost a bomber while scouting the TRIBE Fleet, quickly pinged us when they began receiving mails that they were assaulting the SBU's. Anyways we quickly formed AHACS and jumped on our jump bridge network, which took us right next to the system. We jumped in and warped on field, though they began running right as we came on grid. Alas the Hero Raven and his buddy Oracles/Pest were caught by our bubble and we quickly burned them down.

michaeljd, last night Unclaimed. lost a RF'ed neo moon to a 90 man fleet from Nulli, with some Kadeshi and a few randoms in the RHG-40 pocket in Feythabolis.

Unclaimed. formed a Apoc fleet and got into system first:
(20:59:04) 5n4keyes@jabberlon5.net/Jabber: 120 in fleet, only 90 make it to the system
(20:59:08) 5n4keyes@jabberlon5.net/Jabber: 20 still docked where we started

Nulli dropped a Gila fleet on the Apoc's. The Apoc's immediately went inside the POS shields. Bubbles went up around the POS and a number of ships were caught inside the POS which the Gilas were now killing. The caught shhips ended up getting ganked when the tower went down while the rest of your fleet were sitting in another Unclaimed. POS in system.

Nulli began setting up a new tower on the moon, left system and form up on a titan incase Unclaimed. would have a go for the anchoring tower. This resulted in a number of additional kills for the Nulli and co fleet (thank you).

I haven't been in 0.0 in a while. Would you mind helping me understand why you didn't fight equal numbers, when you had a r64 coming out of RF? I noticed in the BR's (which loaded on my computer -terrible kb:S) you had a 2:1 advantage vs. DD.

The HBC falling apart started when the whole non-war of HBC vs CFC happened (as in: nothing happened). Mittens played his hand well and caused Montolio to loose face, and when consequently Montolio stepped down as TEST and de facto HBC leader, it all went downhill. Cue Power vacuum, PL distancing himself, a generally not respected Sort Dragon stepping up as HBC leader, starting and ill advised war against Nulli / N3 for personal reasons and getting BoB mk.3 on TEST's ass, causing TEST to peace out with a big middle finger to Sort.

I'm gonna sorta agree and blame this on Sort being sort. He's a pretty solid FC, but he's absolutely abysmal at being in charge or anything. Unless you distinctly separate him in your mind between when he's FCing, and when he's doing anything else, you can't respect him.

Outside of being an FC he's a complete asshole, can't run anything, and single handedly drove off a ton of NCdot's pvpers in the past due to him being the way he is.

That said, TEST is absolutely incapable of doing anything and, due to their leadership culture, will very likely not improve for the forseeable future. TEST wouldn't have been a functioning member of the HBC even if they had remained in it - their memberbase only responded to a few people, and given how terribad their leadership has been lately (and how often it changes) they likely lack any sort of cohesiveness. :(

While vee is certainly a solid fc from what I've heard(he's one of the few fcs I've never personally flown under or foght against) I haven't seen him pull any particularly amazing hat tricks or do anything that you wouldn't expect to be accomplished by :goon: numbers.

He certainly has a lot of experience, but i'd like to see him take a fight with even numbers, or even outnumbered vs a competent enemy that isn't flying the worst fleet comp to come about since the laser ferox(and the ppl using arty lokis actually think it's a srsbsns fighting fleet, not just a bad knockoff joke).

I think the fact that they're utterly roflstomping opposition down there is more due to the fact that they haven't fought a proper fleet comp in a large scale fleet. Stomping arty lokis is incredibly easy if you're competent and/or have good ehp ships.

Oh well at least Lshock has the balls to fight us, maybe the rest of your moons won't die in the next two weeks. I do find it humorous that your 5400 dude alliance is incapable of outnumbering four corporations.

Uhm what?

The only reason I referenced BoB in this case was because they were known for their 'master-pet' relationships instead of 'allies on semi-equal footing', and how Sort approached TEST and told them what they should do was reminiscent of that era, despite that type of leadership having failed repeatedly since then. BoB is indeed dead, but their leadership style still hasn't been completely abandoned by some it seems.

At no point did I refer to Raiden or other BoB offspring, so no clue why you bring them into this, and I'm even more puzzled as to where mittens entered the picture. v0v Hope you better understand what I was trying to say now.

I'm well aware of the fact that you're talking about the Neo you lost, thats also the Neo I was pointing out on that timer screenshot. Notice the STEMP Neo in GHZ in the expired timers list, thats the neo. If it wasn't on the timer board, why did it have an op posted for it, and why was it in fact on the timer board?

Fixed Battle Report (http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=18959)

As always the fights with -DD- are intense and well worth getting on early for. Anyways, the fight took place over a reinforced INIT. moon in T-8. Sister Bliss and his froggers jumped in in tandem with our Foxcat fleet at the POS. Very quickly the fight was on as the -DD- and Coven fleet warped in. Prior to cynoing in we filled our drone bays with ecm drones thinking this would effect their logi chain only to have the attempt ruined by the test bombers that showed up. Furthermore, void bombs from both the -DD- bombers and TEST bombers really threw us a monkey wrench. Guilty of forgetting to resupply my hold with cap boosters I had to scavenge the dead body of a fellow APOC for more boosters to get back into the fight.

Thats when the brawl really began. Sitting at about 30%-50% tidi it became a game of what can we break and can the logi hold. Anyways, we began running through their support while our logi seemed to be holding. However, a good void run on our Logi hurt and Tengus began to rip through the Foxcat/Frogger fleet. We attempted to burn down some of the tengu's only to find that they easily tanked us and we switched to the coven AHAC fleet. In an attempt to throw off the Coven ahac fleet, we utilized a typhoon navy issue that refitted to smart bombs on our triage but their logi did a great job and we only killing one guardian. At this point we were taking heavy losses and were told to align to the pos and MJD into the POS. All and all it was a great fight and we had our butts handed to us.

GF -DD- much respect for the fights you bring.

Good read nonetheless~~~

Well. This one is just... Welp... just frustrating.. Anyways. -DD- and Coven formed a Tengu and Loki fleet while we were in froggers and our amarr battleship fleet. Well our bomber fleet hit the -DD- fleet first killing off a lot of their support. Coven jumped through to us allowing us to burn down a couple of them before they crashed. As we were about to MJD out Test bombed us effectively killing any chance of an effective defense. Luckily our bombers must have scared them off or something because we had time to kill the SBU.

If i could add a little opinion piece in here at the bottom. With the creation of bombers that can cloak in entire fleets together it can effectively kill the battleship doctrine as a whole which is kind of sad. I guess I was looking forward to a good fight and alas it was ruined by those who wont fight upright. Alas such is eve =P

Isn't that the point of Loki boosts?

I'm not all that up on current nullsec meta and have never been overly familiar with bombs, but can't you only do 6 at a time?

6 bombs = like 46k damage right?

That's 4 consecutive perfect bomb drops to drop a ~200k EHP BS. Even if they come one after the other, you should still have time to MJD out of a bubble(every competent BS fleet should have MJDs this days - and I know for a fact yours do).

Unless bombs are HUGELY different than what I thought/looked up, I'm not sure how they're THAT huge a problem.><

With the changes to bombers and a proper bomber FC you can hit from multiple directions and hit with a lot more then 6 bombs i think we were hit by 40 bombers or something crazy

A while ago there was a thread iirc with a PL guy who explained how they do that. Can get up to something like a dozen bomber fleets to all hit the same guys at the time with the proper coordination. Can't be assed to dig up the thread though.

Well. This one is just... Welp... just frustrating.. Anyways. -DD- and Coven formed a Tengu and Loki fleet while we were in froggers and our amarr battleship fleet. Well our bomber fleet hit the -DD- fleet first killing off a lot of their support. Coven jumped through to us allowing us to burn down a couple of them before they crashed. As we were about to MJD out Test bombed us effectively killing any chance of an effective defense. Luckily our bombers must have scared them off or something because we had time to kill the SBU.

If i could add a little opinion piece in here at the bottom. With the creation of bombers that can cloak in entire fleets together it can effectively kill the battleship doctrine as a whole which is kind of sad. I guess I was looking forward to a good fight and alas it was ruined by those who wont fight upright. Alas such is eve =P
Right, just like i have to anyways.

Yes, it's possible, but it requires a metric shitton of setup and for everything to work out perfectly. It can be utterly devastating if everything connects, but there are so many different things (some easy, some not) you can do to defend against bombers that I don't think it warrants nerfing. IMO t1 battleship fleets are about the right strength for their cost currently - that could definitely change in the upcoming patch, though. Faction Battleships will probably still be about right.

20 bombers with shrapnel bombs were apparently required to break each ANI, even with decent grid coverage of ANI's that leaves a fairly respectable factor of safety on the bombers part of ensuring maximum destruction. A very impressive bombing run, organising that many members of any alliance in such a situation is easily akin to herding cats.

I also hear there are 100 HBC members stuck in a station they no longer own.

What I hear from :sources: (don't ask, don't tell) is that that corp defected or something to Nulli. They offered to "sell" the station and this is the result.

I also hear that the corp leadership got evicted in a coup or something just prior too.

N3 originally is Nulli Secunda, Northern Coalition and Nexus Fleet. I think Pangu coalition, Hun reloaded, The kadeshi, Unthinkables and Spaceship Samurai also should be loosley tied to N3 altough not sure about standings related stuff. Basically if to look map then starting from drones towards south til Unclaimed space should be more or less part of N3 except RA and Solar ofc.

Hello ladies and gents, It's been a while since I've been on to write up a battle report. We got a pretty good fight today which escalated quite nicely.


Game Over. v Tribal band

Date: 19th June 2013
Location: 1-NJ & Y-C - Period Basis
Involved: Game Over. v Tribal Band



We decided to break out the Navy Scythe's today, adapting the fit to a differ from the ones we've been using to solo and roam <5 without logi. After warrior'ing a fit in EFT just before the patch our high council were eager to give these bad boys a try as they looked good on paper - but we were concerned that they may flop quite miserably. Our fleet consisted of around 19 with 3 logi, a couple of dictors and link alts and of course one or two logging in fashionably late and catching up in smalls. (Such as myself).

What with TRIBE and the TEST block on deployment in Vehan Period Basis has been rather quiet as of late, with that in mind we were unsure as to whether or not we would actually get a decent fight in Period Basis, the situation also forced us to do a full reset to provide us with some local pvp in Stain.

However we were in luck! Thankfully TRIBE had enabled a select elite few from their mighty warrior backbone to stay at home in their Motherland as guardians of the realm. We knew this, because one of these elite few -SamuraiJack- a brave and noble warrior who consistently reminded us that there was still a force to be reckoned with in the area by undocking his Thanatos class carrier on stations to try and kill the miss-fortunate solo roamers from Game Over. on a daily basis.

Today was another one of those days, as predicted SamuraiJack undocked his carrier as we enter local with a small bait gang and proceeded to agress with 20 or so sentries, a target painter and god knows what else. Someone mention Drone Control Units? Anyways, we try and bump but to no avail. A second Thanatos undocks and joins in on the fun, again, we are unable to bump. So after they next aggro we decide to Jam one carrier and kill SamuraiJack - we take him to 20% armor or there abouts before he manages to dock (he was dropping quickly).

As we need a little more DPS we decide to contact our friends Nullsec Ninjas, who relay that they can assemble 10 or so bombers almost instantly. We prep the mid cyno(s) and they get a Black Ops bridge to period and set up ready to drop next time SamuraiJack goes hot. Unfortunately for us and them, he docks and logs for the night.

However while this was happening our scouts provide intel that a fleet is being assembled, so we keep the bombers on standby and prep for a fight. I go to scout 1-NJ and jump into a gang of smalls, on my in-gate, with 17 in local. After relaying the info, we decide to move to that gate in the system we are in (Y-C), in the hope that the fleet will jump into us and the Carrier(s) in Y-C will warp to the 1-NJ gate to escalate.

SO, now time for a bit of elit3 pvp, obviously we were getting set up on the 1-NJ gate, myself being in a Sabre class Interdictor, I decide to orbit the gate at 2300m, enabling me to cloak, while still being within jump range. This would have all been well, if I hadn't hit the jump button instead of the orbit button, which unfortunately I did. I end up derp'ing my dictor back into 1-NJ local, to see that local has climbed to 47 or so, and multiple HICs on the ingate, with a cyno up and 6/7 carriers in local, on the gate, in the bubbles.

I evidently die trying to burn, cloak and slowboat back to gate (so many drones) and get a quick trip home via pod-express.
(I then jump in another dictor and start making my way the 10j or so back up).

While I'm doing this our gang gets a scout into 1-NJ local, and informs the fleet that the bubbles have dropped, and the hostile fleet is aligning/warping the carriers + support off the gate to the station - which is a 60au warp away, leaving the cyno Devotor alone on the gate.

We decide to jump in and kill the Devotor, as we do some of their support fleet starts coming on scan - they're coming back to fight.
We start chewing through the support, reps holding with ease, when Lyy reports that the carriers are flooding back in on scan, It looks like it's back on and we prep the bombers on the black ops.

The carriers land and we start primary'ing the smalls to enable our bombers to jump in for extra dps. Once the smalls are out the way we cyno up' and jump in Nullsec Ninjas, as we do this one of the archons enters triage, we switch primary to the archon and begin to slowly chew through his hp.

The archon dies before exiting triage and a couple of the carriers bail. We spread points and manage to tackle the three thanatos', MichaelJD's archon was lucky and was one of those that escaped. We focus back on the carriers one by one, beign sure to cap out the secondary and tertiary while putting damage on the primary. We see that they are RR fit and not locally repping.

We can tell they are beginning to become low on cap as reps are dwindling. They end up warping one of the archons' that escaped back to us for we can only assume energy transfer capabilities. We slowly kill all remaining carriers with Darkness. arriving for some more dps to polish them off towards the end of the fight.

It's probably worth noting that one of the archons' jettisoned a maelstrom mid fight. Some may argue as a get-away vehicle, but unfortunately for them their plan was foiled.


Goodfight TRIBE & ASH, you surprised us and, I'm sure, we surprised you.
Hopefully more fights to come in the future.

Another quick update from yesterday. It's only fair that I record not only the glorious victories of Game Over. But also the derps on occasion.

Game Over. v Blob

Date: 20th June 2013
Location: 9RQ- - Stain
Involved: Game Over. v INIT + WALLT + Cha Ching + ENTRO


With the success of the -Fleet- Scythes (Named it correctly this time ok), we decided to take another gang out - despite a couple of us feeling that things would go tits up today. We heard that the Esoteria block had moved into stain to start hitting Coven + Co's assets in the area. We thought we would check it out and poke around to see if much was going on, gang-size approx 20 inc alts and scouts.

If im completely honest there isn't really much to tell from here on, especially from my personal point of view. (Running two clients & humid weather / shit pc didn't help me much).

Basically we got to our dest, found 250-300 people in local, and before we could even begin to move on a mass undock occurred and tidi dropped to around 20% or 80% which ever is worse (I actually still dont know). Anyways we got blobbed by about a 150-200 man gang. It's worth noting we didn't even do anything to provoke, so I can only assume our roam coincided with a planned op or something that the Eso block were running.

Naturally running two accounts on a shit pc, my logi was killed and podded before I even loaded grid - I don't even think it was the tidi, I'm pretty sure it was my pc :lol:

Anyways br is below, just bear in mind that they're the people who go on the mails. There were actually a lot more.

Hilarious comment on TMC (although this is not what happened, apparently):


Also this is so meta it hurts. Unclaimed backstabs ROL by dropping sov, gets backstabbed by ASH dropping sov, and now backstabs TDS by dropping sov that was apparently promised to ASH. I thing we got us a postmetagaming.

I was invited along with a few corpmates to a Polarized roam. We ended up getting batphoned by Atztech who was baiting a Game Over fleet on their nullsec hole. Atztech fleet was a mix of T3s and a Triage Archon. Our fleet was a bunch of T1/Faction Cruisers/Battlecruisers with T1 logi support (We were supposed to roam in low-sec).

As we were moving up to the nullsec, Atztech set their trap up. Game took the bait and started the fight with about 30 T3s, an Archon and a few guards at 25km from the hole. As we went through the hole to join the fight, an Erebus landed and DD'ed the Archon. Our only reps were t1 logis (lel). We stayed at jumprange from the hole and started dpsing. Surprisingly their logis were not holding at all (while ours were). We melted a few T3s and most of the guardians, they bailed and we began working on the Archon. Few seconds later a Thanny landed and started repping the Archon. Few more seconds later, Cane lands and lights cyno, two more caps jump through and what was left of the Game fleet comes back. We start moving back to the hole, we lose some logis and a bit of dps, and then jump back home (Some got stuck and had to move through another nullsec to leave).

Was a very good fight, there were a string of errors on our part, which basically lead to your victory. GF all round
Our Logi's were perma-jammed which lead us to bring in carriers. All be it in a fail manner.

Yeah both the initial Archon and my Thanatos were triage fit. Lord I had no idea you were in the area, but I'm not entirely sure more numbers would have made a difference, it was a fundamental communication error(s) which lead to us loosing the fight. Write up from the perspective of Game Over. below:




Game Over. v Ixtab. & Friends

Date: 29th August 2013
Location: 4XW- - Stain
Involved: Game Over. v IIxtab. & Polarized.




We've recently been joined by ex pizza corp FINNS, and also our only non-alt blues iPORN & -DR- from nullsec ninjas. Which has more than doubled our alliance in size in a relatively short period of time. After sorting out a little restructuring and a hefty move op, the guys were getting settled in nicely.

We decided recently to start hitting a few of C0VENS assets in our pocket because TRIBE (rip) were having a bit of a mid-life crisis and avoided us like the plage, (they re-routed their move op an extra 20+ jumps to avoid stain) needless to say we were a little parched of targets and hitting some Pos'es gave us something to do while the high council planned a campaign - also because fuck C0VEN.

Things going nicely, we were focusing on this instead of roaming heavily these past couple of weeks, daily fleets were still going out but they were impromptu and <10 usually. I think this is the first key point to bear in mind.

After scanning the pocket, a member of FINNS reports that there's 2-3 dreads and an archon in a WH in 4XW (2j from our home) with a hic and some light support, naturally we start forming up.
It soon transpires that the WH residents were indeed not plexing but also searching for a fight, they formed their own gang consisting of bhaalgorns, jamgus, and t3's. With the WH having effects (I can't remember the type of wh but its was +++ armor resists), we decide to move our links inside to get setup while we look to fight.

Our gang was forming nicely, approximately 20ish with 6 or so guardians to start, we decide to move to the WH system and wait on the entrance while scouts/links etc all get in place.

As I jump one set of our links into the hole, the hostile gang (Ixtab.) land on the entrance (inside the wh) with their jamgus at range and their archon ready. A little debating goes on in TS and we decide that it's not a suitable fight for us to take in the hole. The count was at 5jamgus and 3 bhaal's. That alone could cripple our logi, and it was very debatable whether or not we would actually break any of their tanks with the hostile triage archon & the native WH effects.

A mexican stand-off occurs, Ixtab. eventually jump into us, but retreat to the hole - perhaps to pull us in, perhaps they also just re-considered.

10 minutes or so pass by and we decide to call it quits, we start moving next door back home as it's clearly suicide to fight in the hole.
As we leave local a member of Ixtab. asks why we're leaving, and after we informed him it would be suicide on our part to fight in wspace, he announces they plan to come into kspace to fight. I tell him we'll be waiting.

We take a quick 5min bio, however during this time, a C0VEN titan pilot logs in, and also a Nyx pilot who lives in the pocket. C0VEN had eyes in local for the whole stan-off. Cautious that we may get dropped/C0VEN are forming for something else, we send eyes out throughout stain and sit on our titan semi-ready. (DoD have been fishing recently and we've stopped using dreads as we know they're itching for some kills since we tackled a couple of theirs a week before-hand, unfortunately they got out).

We send a scout back into 4XW along with a HIC and our links, we sit the HIC 30 off the hole to keep eyes/semi bait.

After an albeit cautious return into k-space, Ixtab. appear and present themselves to fight by aggressing our HIC. We decide it's worth the risk with C0VEN watching for a potential good fight, so we cyno up and bridge the gang in (it's only 2j but we're super lazy and were formed on the titan for another potential gang too). The skirmish starts.

It's worth noting at this point we only had a single HIC at that moment in time, who was also our primary cyno. We didn't intend initially to bring carriers in.

As the skirmish is underway, Ixtab. bring their triage archon into the fight. We had a counter plan for this, but we needed to force the archon to triage. We started focusing the support and the hostile carrier enters triage. A second cyno goes up 100km off the fight and we jump our titan in, a green flash later & the hostile archon is down. - Props for bringing it into the fight, especially since you had our titan scouted, that's p balls deep.

All is looking well for the time-being from the Game Over. perspective, until suddenly we start loosing T3's. It soon transpires that our logi isn't holding due to it being 80% jammed out. With that in mind we prep a Triage archon of our own to jump into the fight. However there is one problem, which is the second major error on our behalf during the fight.

The order was given for our solo HIC to keep his bubble up - stopping him from receiving reps, and eventually going down. Remember that was our only battle cyno, we had a second in place but it was for the titan only.

With things getting desperate we decide to jump the archon in ASAP to the only available cyno to try and prevent any more losses. Unfortunately for us the Archon is just out of rep range and we need to start slow-boating the gang back towards it, this in-turn dropped our DPS considerably, what we also noticed at this point was that Ixtab. had friends, and our initial estimate of their comp was skew. Unfortunately our scout in the hole failed to mention this due to multiboxing, They also had several T1 logi of their own.

With the hopeless slowboating not working, (half the gang is just about in rep range, but we have very poor dps application and hostile ships are tanking easily) I decide to prep my Thanatos to jump into the fight we had a second combat cyno en-route. A minute or two passes and I see a jumpable cyno - there was one active in the destination system and I ask if its the combat one for the second triage to enter. 'Yes'. was announced on comms, so I jumped. Mistake number three, low and behold the Titan cyno was still up and our second triage was off the fight. I immediately warp off and get ready to warp back in.

During my warp out, the FC announces that it's time to cut losses and bail, the gang starts warping out. Our archon exits his triage at this point and is promptly tackled, with myself aligned and ready to warp back in I ask how much is on top of him & also how much has him tackled (4). I prep up to warp in so we can refit to stabs and jump - we have an exit cyno ready and no bubbles are on the field.

As I land our archon pilot announces it's no use due to 8+ points on him, and we opt to refit so he can fit max tank and triage again to bide time. Quasar our archon pilot gets down to approximately 15% armor before refitting and being able to tank their dps. Our gang reformed and with a couple extra turning up are warping back into the fight. The fight is now around the friendly carriers and reps are holding fine. Our damage application is much better and targets are starting to drop.

Ixtab. & friends quite rightly realize this and begin to retreat to the hole. Unfortunately for them, the hole collapses and half of their gang are stuck. We kill a couple more but a fair few of the hostiles escape.

Overall it was a very fun fight and only the second time I've used my carrier in combat. (as well as running links and a legion :S)

It was a fight that we definitely lost, due to a combination of the following factors:


- First collective fight with the new corps in alliance, some slight variance on the t3 fits without realizing.
- Let them form up for too long / batphone.
- Our usual t3 FC wasn't fcing, one of the FC's from the new corps stepped up - Nothing wrong with this since he has lots of WH combat experience, but we should have reverted FC once the fight moved into kspace. Target calling etc was still spot on but there was no enforcement for dps anchor and logi anchor.
- :No backup combat cyno/HIC: <This is the main fault. If our triage was in reps we would have been able to tank the dps fine.
- Breakdown of communication for the second cyno/triage to jump in.
- Didn't properly scout numbers/connecting holes.

You win some, you loose some. Unfortunately we lost this one, but it's fights like this that help gel new-comers into the alliance. We were desperate for a good fight and all enjoyed it never the less.

Game Over. v Ixtab & Polarized.

Speaking from a Polarized perspective we really thought we were gonna die in a fire. The plan was to go on a low sec roam, so we were all mostly in Tech I ships. We knew we were going up against a Tech III heavy fleet, and normally we'd be flying them as well. A really good fight -props to Game Over for bringing it despite the challenges they were dealing with!

Footnote: We did eventually go on that low sec roam and my Harbinger did in fact die in a fire (http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=19427543) :)

Oi!

Three POS timers were the objective of about 1700 chaps gathering (http://evf-eve.com/services/brcat/?s=3100&b=6337065&e=228&t=eizjPXAGnN&r=1) in A-CJGE (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/system/A-CJGE) yesterday.
The ~5hr battle that ensued only took about 40 minutes of "real time", judging be the combat probes running timer, and though i started recording it I gave up after about an hour of rather boring slowboating through bubbles.
My story-line is a little foggy since i lost my attentiveness right after undocking, SW fleet landed on grid with a tower and started shooting it but after one MJD activation found itself in the worst possible position for us - in bubbles, with NC. Tengus right upon us and with S2N RattleFleet on distance. S2N Supercaps followed promptly by landing on us as well. With nothing much to do in the situation, we slowboated and fired, fired and slowboated, with bombruns every few minutes, rinse and repeat. TiDi was merciless, but rather punctual with pretty much everything functioning.
The scales tipped this way and the other, with the collective effort of CFC/GERADRF/SW NC. tengu fleet was chased off grid and S2N fleet was practically eradicated, with their triage wiped and their supercaps floating towards the tower.
At some point it looked like we had the sub-cap advantage and perhaps we should start thinking about these supers but reports of NC. supers within one cyno range, PL and DARKeshi fleets attending to reinforce S2N made it clear that if anything is to happen, it's going to happen well into the next day so... One by one our fleets disengaged and left home/went to sleep under a force field.
All three POSes (two we meant to kill, one we meant to save) were lost, N3 were left to hold the grid, GFs all over, was fun.

A translation of a BR by Unionn:
Saturday mid-day, we formed a CTA fleet to shoot a couple of R64 towers in Esoteria. The towers weer timed to USTZ, but in one of the adjacent systems we saw another couple of towers held by different corporation which turned out with a different timer, one that fit the RUS prime time perfectly - 18:00ET Sunday.
A FullPower CTA was posted before DT. Since our numbers grew in the past few weeks, I expected to see a full fleet plus a bombers fleet and I was not dissappointed. Prior to bridging in, I had to ask interceptor and interdictor pilots to leave fleet in order to allow BS pilots in. After undocking and running a drill or two, I counted about a hundred of alpha BS (TFI and Machariels) and 50 NApocs.
S2N and Fraternity are capable of deploying about the same numbers in RUTZ however they too had a hunch about things going South, and Sunday morning requested and received confirmation of NC. fleet attending the party in their Tengus. We too had our batphone somewhere, and after recharging its battery a few calls were made:
Old Hroft with TT and other bombers.
GE with elite Machariels
RADRF with Tengus
CFC with Harpies and Ishtars (depending on how the WH highway functions)

On 18:00 ET everything was ready, fleets either stood by on titans or marched to their destionation.
First to enter the system were Ev0ke in about 40 bombers, then Hroft's bombers (~30) as well as small ships from all sides, local count held at 120.
Tower became vulnerable, SW BattleShip fleet bridged and situated on the tower. After about 2% of tower shield went down, a few cynos popped open and S2N fleet (~110 Rattles) and NC. fleet (~70 Tengus) bridged into the system.
The Tengus quickly tackled the SW fleet, while Nulli fleet was split by a bubble, resulting in the triage Chimeras being able to work on only half their fleet. A CFC Ishtar fleet arrives to the grid, followed by RADRF Tengus and GE Machariesl. With coordination between our allies we begin to focus NC. Tengus and their logistics, it becomes clear that they stand about the same chances as our BSs, which is slim to none of getting repairs. A fascinating game of "Kill all enemy FC" begins between both sides, however while SW FCs can reship and return to battle in reasonable time (Thanks TiDi), NC. FCs don't have this option read, and their fleet is forced away from the fight. In the mean time SW fleet tanks for everyone, since as it's expected we present the best targets.
About 10minutes since the fight started, 30 or so Nulli supercaps land on our battleships and join the party by gnawing at them. Despite the good work by our logies and frequent rewarping, we suffer losses. Pilots who lost their ships are promptly bridged back into action after reshipping in 4GQ. Once NC. Tengus left, S2N Rattles had to suffer the full wrath of several fleets. At times they popped, other managed to be saved by the carriers, until a decision to focus the carriers was made - making short work of them, it becomes a turkey shoot. It could all end right there, but Nulli had their supers firmly tackled in bubbles, and they couldn't afford to lose them, so ... reinforcements were called.
NC./DARKeshi Ishtar fleet was en route, PL Tengus, Waffles bombers and more NC. Tengus, not to mention the local dwellers Fraternity and others. CFC reserves were on the way as well, CO2 HACs, INIT were rumored to form up. While the Rattles were bravely dying, local spiked at around 1700. TiDi became tiresome, the fight was going on for 4 hours already and with 1am Moscow time there was no end in sight. And tomorrow is a work day.
The first to disengage were GE who went home, RADRF followed quickly. PL and NC. tengus warp on our fleet, with DARKeshi Ishtars on optimals. CFC Ishtar fleet reported that they're down to their last drone pack, and a decision to leave the fight was made, as usually followed by a total mess of rewarps, people unable to enter POS password properly and other end-battle treats.
I'd like to point out the good work by bombers on both sides, but our bombers did better, killing a small Skeleton Ishtar fleet.
Strategic goals are all lost, but a GoodFight was had, ISK efficiency points in our favor.

It's a pity some people in GE value several hours of sleep more than breaking someone's neck (even if only in a game). I felt like SW+Co had a real chance to win the fight yesterday. Well, next time then.

No pity here, at all. Fuck these wasted nights in anal TiDi so some neckbeards or others can brag on kugu/eve-ru for years after shitting everything up.
I thought it was a great fight, and was very relieved it didn't escalate.

Well we had ... something yesterday. 3 towers coming out of reinforce in Esoteria, and almost a full fleet for StainWagon consisting of mostly alphaBS (TFIs/Machs) complemented by NApocs and support.
Enemy movements were reported with S2N in Cerbs and SlowCat Archons, something something BRAVE fleet on the way and a formup of NC.
After taking our positions on the first tower, several Chimeras started to pump the shield, with the foes in the adjacent system. At some point, a wild cyno lights up and promptly goes down, not before a single Archon makes the jump, practically straight to the killboard. (http://stainwagon.abinet.ru/battle/b14195/) No amount of begging on comms helped, and Killah Bee was kindly transitioned to his cloning facility. Looked like he purchased his cyno generator on eBay, and got a faulty unit, otherwise i don't understand that move.
It took a while to pump the shield with us not risking more than 1(?) triage cycle, thus allowing the enemies to trap us in the appendix, and after seeing what we were up against it was clear that we can't put up a fight wholeheartedly. Unionn announced that a series of "difficult maneuvers" are coming up, a codename for my forehead about to be red and swollen with intensive facepalming, and so we begun our brave brave retreat, or as I prefer to call it - improving our positions to the rear.
Armor BSs are famous for their agility and speed, and during the few jumps we made we had to use MJD twice, loosing several stragglers on the way and still ... We were short of 1-2 minutes in our attempt to bridge out via a titan when NC. railgus caught up with us.
The titan was logged off, smartly so, because the password to the tower we hid at was known to NC. only half a minute later than it was known to me.
Several BSs not fast enough were dispensed off by the Tengus (http://stainwagon.abinet.ru/battle/b14198/), and bumping extravaganza began. Half an hour later, when NC. fleet went back home through their wormhole, we bridged back to 4GQ and went to sleep carebear.
One tower saved, two lost with a bunch of faction BSs, no actual fight to be had this time. BRAVE fleet, if ever existed was not observed in the vicinity, but GE were rumoured to entertain them somewhere on the way.

Other than that, Nulli have put up a new station in HHQ (http://evemaps.dotlan.net/system/HHQ-M1) and all indicates that they're making it their staging system, now closer to 4GQ than ever. Interesting to see how it will play out.

3 are dead, no more will die [today]. It took something like 2 hours (maybe more) to bump and kill the last one, after everyone poured into the system, so... A good night sleep is very important for your health!

http://stainwagon.abinet.ru/battle/b14419/#overview

Would have been nicer to kill that Fraternity titan, but oh well, 3 supers and some caps traded for about a dozen of dreads, the subcap fight went decisively our way, i suppose it'll suffice for this evening.
