Apparently -A- baited the titan because he had been dropping it on carriers that were undocking from stations in curse

He dropped that thing on one of our alliance roaming nanogangs. Really not surprised to see him go.

Good fight in G-0 today. WN were heading our way with a 120 man mach/cerb heavy gang with a decent amount of scimmies. A man isn't a man if he can't fight for his home so we started spamming channels telling people to get in fleet and got fairly similar numbers in drakes + scimmies.

We jumped into KLMT but WN were at around 100, which was horrible for us, so we jumped back and waited at 0 in G-0. 3 drakes somehow died in KLMT, but once their aggro cleared WN jumped into us and started to pull range. We chased and a brawl ensued. Reps could barely hold, but some ships died before we could lock + WN did a good job jamming our scimmies. Death or Glory and Gypsy Band jumped in after a while, and with our fleet being sandwiched between them we warped out and regrouped. Hard to tell yet, but I would say the 1st round went to WN. WN and DoG/Band shot at each other after we warped out so this was a proper 3-way.

The day wasn't over though. 5 minutes later, with people in new ships we warped back in at 0 on the WN fleet and the fun started all over again. Except for our temp NAP with 404 that is. They came in with a 40 man abaddon gang, targets begun actually dying, and our reps were holding. Think we lost 2-3 drakes in the 2nd engagement. After 10 minutes of pew WN realized they were losing and left system. We chased and got a couple of machariels, and local was flooded with GFs.

Local was at 400, lag was very light and I think everyone had fun.

What is the state of solo PvP in Curse? I was down there tonight, setting up pounce spots and stuff in my 'Ranis. I want to learn how to do solo stuff, especially manual piloting and all that jazz.

If you're into killing Dramiels Curse is more like a blessing, for they are legion. I'm terribad at soloing but when I've attempted it I've either encountered said Drams/DDs, or gatecamps that always seem to have backup ready. Someone who lives deeper into curse might have a different opinion though!

Curse is dead in US TZ pretty much. DIAT gets 20 man gangs up and there's nobody in the region that can match it. It sounds cool but it's just boring.

Sorry to a bump a fairly dead thread, but I have a question related to Curse: Who would one want to get in touch with if they wanted to fly around curse relatively unmolested doing carebear things? Or is the US TZ dead enough that one doesn't need blues to have a mostly paranoid experience?

If you want to do the epic arc then get a dram, if you want to whore missions then get a cloaky nullified tengu and have the subs in the hold and change out at a station in system.

Pretty much, but a dram or cloaky nullifed ship is your only chance. If you wanna do the epic arcs, please do. I enjoy killing the bears on the kickout stations in my sabre.. Always a chance of a Domi TP or Cyna BPC drop.. =)

I, for one, am happy to be back in Curse. THORN deployed here for a few weeks last year with WTF and ME. Now we're back with some of the same friends and some new ones. Our first roam, we just burned towards Doril until we hit a camp.

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=11536153

killboard is a mess as there was a fight between a RAWR (+some Brickies) gang and the Property dudes. We had maybe 8 dudes and killed the red citizens in the myrm, harbi, sabre, cynabal, and cane. Not too sure what we had as it was a loooooong weekend of moving, it was late, and I was drink. I'm looking forward to killing many more RUS / RUSpets.

Just as many raging haters posting there as RAWR chestbeaters.

During formup for an op Sunday around 1800 some brickies were tarped in station by Wreck / Wreckless Chavs. They had I dunno 8-10 guys on station aggressing our guys trying to form up (mind you, we're all going on the same op, on the same side). So bait them, cyno up, and bridge on top of them killing 2 abaddons and a loki while the rest docked. Then I guess their diplo started raging at our diplo for killing them on station. I dunno how our thumping them was unjustified but, I predict this will all end hilariously.

We moved into the general are recently and have been having a very good time down here. It seems like everyone is running 10-20 man gangs up and down the Doril to Vol pipe every day. Had quit a few good fights against those gangs. Although.....seriously wtf is up with the falconfalconfalconfalconfalcon gangs. I swear I have seen 8 man gangs with more falcons than dps ships.

But v0v we are adapting. Best fights I have had so far was with a -A- gang in pests and this last weekend in a shield BC fleet against 6packsyndicate. The latter was a complete romperstomping. Smack would have been much more fun if one of their pilots hadn't reminded me that he killed my vaga with his drake the night before.

Also had a very skin of the teeth loss to a......I can't remember their name but they were baiting with a phobos on a gate. Must not of thought very much of me because he started by sitting on the gate at zero with his sebo running (yeah, that's gonna work.) Then he intentionally(?) warped off and then back into our drag bubbles 100k behind the gate. Seemed like this was a huge mistake on his part because his buddies on the other side would not be able to get in range in time to save him. We were able to get him to 30% structure before rookrookrookrook. It was a good change from the falcons at least.

Edit: Oh yeah, and while I wasn't around for this, looks like one of our brand new waffle FCs (had never FC'd before or really pvp'd much) ran into hydra duders + Garmon in an Adrestia. The new FC chose to engage and die like a retarded lion. He will do well in waffles.

Yes the fighting has been nice. This week was mostly spent going from H-ADOC through HLW to Doril, fighting along the way, en route to SBU and RF HED.

Now it seems, of all things, TEST has deployed to H-ADOC literally shitting up everything. We had about 40 of them trapped in the station by our 24 man fleet. They played docking games in hurricanes and pods (poorly in some cases) until finally undocking bait and cyno bridging in another 50-60 duders on station.

Frankly, it's just stupid now and TEST are WN meatshields?

edit for a now functional killboard and br: http://killboard.brick-squad.co.uk/?a=kill_related&kll_id=11768629

TEST think they're camping in RAWR and finishing them off. If you look at the BR you see there 2 RAWR of the 33 pilots. Rest are brick (mostly star frontiers, reliables, and thorn). clearly I also underestimated numbers of both sides, theirs by quite a bit.

So we have 6000 guys at a minimum organizing to camp about 350 guys in 3 corps in NPC 0.0. This is apparently what EVE has come to.

Also, hi hellkyte, sorry about that ishtar :P

As some of you might know Cascade Imminent (FAIL) deployed to H-ADOC a couple of days ago. Being good hosts DarkSide decided to give them a warm welcome (http://kb.ds-alliance.com/battle/r54992/) and engaged their 120-man Geddon-fleet with 40-man T3-gang. Once saw our cyno they ran home like headless chickens... just to be slaughtered by PL/NCdot (http://fail.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=12556113). Stupid. Today's evening we had been blocking their undock with the same gang until they (tried to) gave us a fight (http://kb.ds-alliance.com/battle/b3539/). Not sure what they wanted to do, fits show they wanted to counter us with webs, but something went wrong, and FAIL was forced to dock. gf gf gf

My corpmate and I did a roam at 03:00 last night. The only PvP'ers out and about were gatecamping the RMOC gate in Hemin.

http://evol.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13600631

They had some more T1 ships at the gate, but the nerds ran, although they got my PromMos into structure. Switching to 1600 plate to utilize all dem sick repair stations.

We roam provi/curse/catch/low sec around assah almost every night....

Curse is TERRIBLE during that time. After messing around with -A- we'll normally take the "everyone talks and comms suck" attitude as we know we won't be seeing anything but a 2 or 3 man gate camp that runs from more than a frigate.

You're in exodus? Yeah I welped my fleet on your g-5 gang not long ago because one of our basilisks warped to the wrong place and ~100AU so we were pretty done.

-a- isn't deployed at the moment so any time we get very deep in catch we just get trapped by a huge blob we have no hope of engaging. Looking for less blobby territory, sounds like Curse needs more fleets though :-/

not a lot of small-medium gangs roaming, though we get visitors sometimes.

We did another roam today (Me in a Deimos; corpie dual-boxing Oneiros and Ishtar). We roamed down near G-O, seeing only a few roaming frigs and a 10-ish man gang in Zealots/Oracles (didn't check their corp/alliance in local, because I'm dumb). We headed back to Sendaya, and in Jorund, a 4-man gang who had not engaged us on our way into Curse (they were in 2x Sabres, Vagabond, Vigilant; camping the dead-end Farit gate...) had reshipped and were ready to fight.

I warped to their station, had some things undock and chase. The Lach followed us to gate, and aggressed, so I ordered us through (which, in retrospect, was dumb; I should have let more ships aggress). A Vagabond followed us, and we brawled him down quickly, despite a Scimitar jumping in at the end to give him reps. I started to turn my guns on the Cynabal, but at that point, with the Sleipnir now on field, the Oneiros's reps couldn't hold me. I died, and the Ishtar died soon after. Luckily, our Logi made out.

It was a good fight, and without the Sleipnir, I think we would have done much better.

.

Yep, I was one of the Guards. When you guys landed 50 off the 9-F gate I called for a warp back to Assah at 10 or 20k... had the dps start to move out towards 9-F hoping for another 50 call by you guys. When the inty landed I had them turn around to gate to not show our hand but as soon as you guys were off d-scan from 9-F/on dscan from us I told them to start burning out in that direction again. Then had someone else start making all the calls as I went into "logi mode".

All in all though, I'd love to see you guys out more often. I know CVA is primarily EU... but EE and -7- have a good sized USTZ but they just don't form up to fight. Either sit in their JB POS or dock up - pretty lame. You don't learn to pvp without losing mass amounts of ships. -7- had more logi and more DPS the other night and still ran back to their JB POS when they realized we had more than just 3 ships <-- Of sound mind/TSOE does this as well on their gate camps. More than 1 target? RUN AWAY. Gets lame.

Glad you guys fought though.

TL;DR.... Yep, I was there, thanks for a fight!

We've fought you before when we had anything close to a gang that could kill even one of you. Typically you have off-grid booster T3's and outnumber us by 4-6 pilots, not to mention the obvious skill point advantage which multiplies the imbalance. Complaining that a scrub training alliance that purposely recruits sub-10 million SP people won't fight you outnumbered is goofy.

If I think we have a good shot at getting a good fight with you, we go for it, despite the fact that we know we'll come out losing a few more ships. We've fought you in YWSO and 9FOB on the rare occasions where I think we can get a fight out of it. We fought you on Sunday, even, after you had demolished the -7- fleet in YWSO. Went shitty (traded a tornado and brutix for a drake), but you can't say we didn't attempt to engage.

Would like to have more fights with you guys just so my guys can improve by fighting a competent group, but if I take 10-12 guys into 15-17 dudes with a off-grid booster advantage every night... then I'd be a retard who wouldn't get anyone to form up. No point to a one-sided suicide, and the advantage you get from the off-grid boosts you have up on every gang makes fighting you outnumbered a one-sided suicide.

I know to most of your guys everyone in Providence is in a single fleet and coordinating, but really, few of us cooperate on any level. Most fleets in US TZ Providence are operating on their own rather than one big ol' blob. Tyrus can testify to that.

Curse is so dead in US TZ, hopefully this new Retirement Club alliance can give a reason to visit once in a while.

Not trying to shit up the curse thread... but maybe if we keep talking more activity will occur!

We rarely have more than 12. I'm trying to find the last time we had more than 15 including the 1 Logi that we bring with nano. Normally if we've hit the 15 barrier unless we have a specific target (Lately -A- fleets that appear on the intel of which we formed 16 to go fight their 51 a few nights ago) we'll break down into 2 groups. Sure... doesn't mean that the groups don't talk to each other if someone forms up and they potentially need a bit of help... Just because you see 8 Exodus in one area doesn't mean the other 5 in R3 are able to support right away. Same principle for us more often than not, just like yourselves. I'm not saying you need to be a blob. Talk. That's it. Just talk. But as to blue's and the provi block...

What is the point of being blue if not to help each other when a threat appears, yes? (or annoyance... I don't view us as a threat) We realize very much that you guys are not a single coordinated fleet. The way in which you all act makes this very very, almost painfully, clear. We wouldn't have been able to take the EE/-7- group with yours most likely if you guys seemed to even have something of a plan together. You have each other's comms... I have their comms, I'll get on and introduce everyone so you guys can form up/bait/switch all night long. I talk to Raven pretty frequently... I'll convo you the next time I'm on them. Talking is key - find their FCs, co-ordinate. It's pretty easy and once you do it enough times it becomes routine. The YWSO fight that I think you are talking about we didn't even have a booster for. Miscommunication had some people thinking I brought mine... someone else brought theirs... long story short we didn't have one. Boosters help for sure... yet you can fit the links on Drakes with little issue to get some bonus if you do not want to take the 4-6 months to train a booster. Might not even take 4 months to get in a loki with shit leadership skills that will outperform a drake in that role.

But - I understand your sentiment, don't lose anything, keep camping, guys keep coming out to gank 1 or 2 things. Y'all are happy with that. If guys cannot take losses while learning to do something pvp oriented then this game is not for them. Stop camping. Roam. Take the guys and roam, you'll all be better off for it in the long run. New guys will learn way more than they can from sitting at a gate. Even if you don't fight us - roam and find someone else to slaughter.

Not the sentiment at all, really. We've engaged you multiple times when we didn't have to on your current basing out of Assah and did so when you based closer to R3 last fall, but the whole "suicide into us so you'll get better" thing isn't realistic at all. Moving off position to avoid a stronger gang with a neutral off-grid booster has nothing to do with not wanting to lose ships, but rather a wish to not charge in like lemmings to a comp that is set-up with as little risk as possible.

If the goal is to get cheap ganks, it's better to be red to Proviblock than blue. You know that.

As for not forming a giant big ol' blob, it's for the better of each entity that we try to run our own fleets in times of non-invasion. You don't get better at all by forming up 35 man gangs to go fight 15-17 man gangs. Would rather move away from your gang when we can't engage than blob it up. You don't get better going to carebearland and destroying pots n' pans home defense fleets. You get better by engaging competent pilots that set out to PvP, the kind you can find roaming to Providence from time to time.

As for the YWSO fight, eyes saw neutral cloaky loki and tengu in system, engaged anyways. If they weren't off-grid boosting, great. I can't think of many, if any, times I've seen you guys have gangs up without one though. Which is obviously your right, but it causes people to not bother fighting you when they see it.


Might not even take 4 months to get in a loki with shit leadership skills that will outperform a drake in that role.

Trying to stay away from the imbalanced gimmicks, with the vain hope that CCP will swing the nerf-bat one day, don't want to come to rely on them. We quite respect the ability of your gangs and such, just trying to address the whole "They moved because they don't want a fight" stuff. Fights are great, walking into a predetermined slaughter because you're outmatched in numbers, boosts, skills, range, and speed? Nobody does that. Expecting people to do that just because "they're scrubs and that's what scrubs should do" is poor form. I don't smack when a gang avoids or moves off, most of the time they have a good reason to. It's more offensive when they suicide thoughtlessly.

Belegarath
June 9 2012, 03:55:12 PM
So in other words a booster should only be allowed in blobs?

To take a 10-15 man gang out and be forced to dedicate someone to a otherwise worthless ship can kill a gang comp. Throw the vulture/claymore into a 60man group and you've lost nothing. That's about the only thing I find not balanced about them. Do you have the opportunity to train for one? Yes. Balance given by choice to train or not (much the same to my argument for tarding up the game and taking out the OPTION to train learning skills or not). Take away those boosts and that'll simply be yet another nerf bat to small gang warfare overall. Won't affect large gangs at all. So all in all... I'd expect it to happen eventually as the people in the vast null blobs bitch/whine/moan because they don't care to train up their own... easily done. And the toon continues to be usefull for other roles even if they do hit it with the nerf bat.

Also... if you don't like an off grid booster - probe him. It really is easy enough to do. We've had it happen to us and we've done it to others - we usually get 1-2 a month.

As a side note as well - I can guarantee the Tengu wasn't ours as there is no benefit for us to even run one. I know for a fact after looking at the fleet window in my fraps that we didn't have a Loki there. Not discounting all the other times.

Anyways... done shitting up the curse thread.

Going to attempt to not be a fucking jack ass for once in my life.

TBH Xavier ever thought of using a different gang comp. ? There are a fuckton of ways to counter the gangs we run (yes running away is one because it pisses me off). Instead of using insta lock canes and rail brutixes(seriously..wtf)...use oh idk arty Munnins or armor T3's or have 1 or 2 competent recon pilots in your gang OR the biggest sugestion of them all...Get your own loki booster ? None of sugested is that hard tbh and if your gonna train your guys to get better , which is a respectable thing to do, you need to switch up the comps. i get pissed at bele for allways flying the same shit..and once in a blue moon when we Do run armor T3's half our alliance is scratching there god damn heads because were all fucking nano fags. Also camping gates 24/7 doesnt really improve pilots skill.

TLDR , Fly other shit get a loki booster.

Did a roam last night. Corpie single-boxing Oneiros; me in Deimos. We went through Provi and Catch, seeing nothing until we happened upon Adversity. in some Assault Frigs. Like the dishonourable cowards they are, they ran, but as we followed them into Curse to complete our roam, they made a stand on the Utopia gate in Litom. Except, when I aggressed, they jumped through. :v

During that Mexican standoff, a Harbinger was watching the fight from a pounce. When the assualt frigs jumped through, he warped closer to the gate and turned towards station as I burned towards him. On the station, he let me aggress him and he was going down with relative ease. When he got to hull, I was like, "Damn this nerd; he's just gonna dock and I'll have wasted ammo." Well, although he wasn't aggressed, he never docked, so I got the killmail (http://evol.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13611191). He reshipped into a Drake, and along with some dude from another corp, they started to play docking games. Finally, the assortment of corps/alliances managed to get two Drakes and a Myrmidon on station. The brick-tank Drake and the Myrm aggressed, so I went for the Myrm. I was breaking through his active tank, despite a Scimitar undocking to rep him. However, I was jammed a few times by ECM drones, and that allowed him to fix his armor tank a bit and force me to rip through shields again as the Scimi repped. When he finally docked, in 50% structure, I turned to a nearby Drake. "Local spike!" warned my corpmate. I stopped aggro'ing the Drake, and I began to MWD toward the other station in system. Well, that was apparently retarded, because enemy frigs landed me and got point on me before I was out of hte Drake's point range. Suddenly, I was 30km off station, triple-webbed, with the enemy gang MWD'ing towards me. Still holding delusions of survival, I did not attack anything and slowboated to station. Remarkably, the Oneiros reps were holding. Until he, too, was jammed by ECM drones.

I lost my semi-pimped Deimos (http://evol.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13611190), and was greatly saddened. gfgf blobbers

Did a roam last night. Corpie single-boxing Oneiros; me in Deimos. We went through Provi and Catch, seeing nothing until we happened upon Adversity. in some Assault Frigs. Like the dishonourable cowards they are, they ran, but as we followed them into Curse to complete our roam, they made a stand on the Utopia gate in Litom. Except, when I aggressed, they jumped through. :v

I thought long and hard about going for it but ultimately decided against it, on the grounds that with four assault frigs, we didn't have enough DPS to break the deimos in time even if we forced the Oneiros to crash gate and jump; he would've had plenty of time to burn back to gate, jump, and rep you back up, all while we would've been losing AF's. It was four in the morning at that point and I was already up much later than intended (had to get up for work in 3 hours), and ultimately I decided I wasn't going to derp most/all of us into chasing a kill we had a very slim chance of getting.

Also, I was tired and cranky.

On the topic of hiding / not hiding / engaging.

CJEVE has been purposefully been recruiting players with semi-significant SP, and we've got decent numbers.

I'm not 100% sure we can reliably engage against a fully trained gang (because we tend to end up filling out our fleet using a few less-experienced pilots)

But I'll see what I can do over the weekdays.

Had a small scrap with Stevie's Deimos + Oneiros combo in Doril again today. We had 6 AF's in fleet + 1 old friend we happened to run into unannounced on that gate who helped out. Maybe a bit blobby yes, but he aggressed us first, and it wasn't like I was going to tell people not to get on the mail :) He almost took down one of our harpies but I had the brains to call for all webs on the deimos so the harpy could pull range and warp (the oneiros was aggressed with drones and couldn't jump; he died).

http://adversity.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13630723

We later accidentally'd into a gang of a couple canes, and sabre, and a rapier; it's almost like all minmatar ships are designed to be anti-frigate. Due to a scouting miscommunication we accidentally jumped into them, all managed to jump back but the rapier was able to tackle our rupture (http://adversity.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13631244) on the side; nothing we could've really done to get him out of there sadly.

The fishy thing is that the oneiros didn't have drones to aggress you with. :D

Midori wants you to know that he died, because he has honoure (and he couldn't jump through the gate for some reason. vOv). That wasn't really a good decision to engage on my part, but now I know to avoid AF gangs in my Deimos. lol.

tl;dr- Lex restores honoure by engaging.

How does curse look during mid USTZ? 0100-0400 server?

Having moved back into the area we had this fight Friday: http://thorn.killmail.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13609902

2 of our losses were dictors, 2 were close range fit ships in a long range fleet. we simply kited them and after killing their tackle and proving we could break reps (they actually out scimi'd us) on what was left they fucked off. The actual fight lasted quite a while and was good fun.

Had a GF against the Thorn / 401k Setup in muninns.

I was afraid they would be formed in that, and brought Shield Ti3s on the roam anyways, which are light on raw EHP....

We were on our way to doril, looping through catch / curse, when i noticed a fairly large number of jumps on dotlan around g-0q86.

We redirected, and while we were SUPPOSED to be waiting for our last logistics, who DC'd, half my fleet warped to the G-0 Gate in KLMT as G-0 spiked with the 401k/Thorn muninn fleet. I warped the remainder of the fleet through and we jumped to g-0, where we ganked an overeager muninn. we got off gate (which ended up being a mistake) and they jumped through and engaged. They outlogi'd us by 1, but the key factor turned out to be alpha more than anything. They wiped a couple of our light tackle and then started hammering our main dps. We warped out, regrouped, and jumped back in to KLMT for round 2, staying grouped and close-ish to the gate... we popped another muninn and sabre, but continued to take losses so we once again bailed and left the field to them, losing a tornado (not sure if he had been hard tackled earlier or just didn't hit his MWD early enough) on the way out.

We traded ~goodfites~ in local and prepared to depart, 401k/Thorn apparently intending to allow us to leave like gentlemen.... our "scouts" (aka pods) trying to flee, however, ran in to a camp of 5 on the KLMT gate in HLW... the bulk of the hostile fleet had gone back to G-0 however, so we made the call to run the 5 man rear guard camp. We avenged several of our losses here, scoring another muninn and sabre kill + drake/cane kills as well. The muninn gang finally jumped in as the last tackle was dropped and we warped out again. Pursuit ended there and our fleet returned to providence uneventfully.


BR including adjacent kills from our perspective:

http://kb.cva-eve.org/?a=kill_related&kll_id=235362&adjacent=1

we show an even total result but I'm under the impression we may have lost a couple of non-cva in the fight as well.

Ran a little kitey-type fleet through providence, wicked creek, catch, and then finally back home to Curse. Didn't really find much in the way of engagements except for a few poorly fit BC's (http://adversity.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13653442) that bit our bait (the bait that solo'd the harby and cane and would've likely had no issue soloing the other harby + maller).

After that it was mostly a roam of chasing things that ran from us, a random gank here and there, chasing some more stuff, and then heading home. Afterwards we promptly hotdropped a lolz-chimera (http://adversity.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13654863) in Immensea.

Dunno what all this talk of Curse being dead in USTZ is vOv we've found plenty of good stuff during the night to pew pew.

Capped off busy weekend and celebrated alphastarpilot's return from vacation with an amazing fight against Gents in Hemin.

We had 40 dudes in our Muninn fleet (not all muninns but canes, light tackle, and 5 scimis as well). We just went and camped their station until Gents brought a fight (not that they weren't planning on it mind you). A deal was made to avoid shooting FCs, gfgf was inbound.

So on the station lands tempests, hurricanes, scimis, and RF Firetails - a brawl ensues with both sides warping around grid occasionally trying to get the upper hand and neither really succeeding and spending a lot of time bashing each other in the face, changing targets trying to find a weak point. We have a hard time with tempests but find the hurricanes to be good targets for us. As time goes on we are loosing a ship every time we reposition and it's usually a recon or logi. So we're down to 3 logis from 5 and gents are reshipping as they die and are up to 7 logis from 3.

We've killed a lot and will just be slowly ground down if we stay so we headed for LJ- as Gents got on a Titan. We expected a drop on the route back and there was...but it was 20,000 km of the gate so, welp :p

Battle report is beyond readable because we smart bombed to clear drones a few times and THORN Alliance is still not able to be moved on dog-net w/e thing.

Some facts:
34 kills on the THORN board: 7 RF Firetails, 4 Tempest, 10 canes, 5 scimis with a cpl rifters and a muninn thrown in.
5 losses including Raptor, Ishkur, Rifter, Muninn, Huginn.

Retirement club lost Sabre, Falcon, Scimi, 2 muninn, crow, hound, 2 rupture, curse
Init/IM had a scimi with us as well, he died.

I'd swear the fight lasted 20 minutes.

Link for what it's worth: http://thorn.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13695987

tl;dr
Great fight in Hemin vs Gents to end the weekend. Lots died on both sides we think we came out ahead. Would do again.

started roaming curse to avoid blobs and hotdrops.

Immediately got hotdropped by Gentlemen's agreement fleet instead of getting a ~goodfite~ against falcon + 6 BC.

Although. The BC fleet MAY have been ROL and GENTS was opportunistic on a 3-way as their cyno excuse, but... it was still a bit of a disappointment after getting a couple of goodfites last week.

Ah well v0v roll of the dice i suppose.

BR?

Sure. Holy shit, this got long, so tl;dr - fun fights with the denizens of the far east, first Goons, wtf, then 401k/Thorn, followed by two rounds with ImpL.

The fight above ended up getting a bit bigger, actually split over three rounds:

http://dog-net.org/brdoc/?brid=8209

We (ExodusDOT) formed up to roam in our typical nano fleet - drakes and nados/oracles - with some new friends in Adversity along for the ride. Being largely moon time zone where most of eve is going to sleep and fights are not always easy to come by, we do our usual look at map > pick bright light > leeroy there at best speed while making fun of each other and listening to terrible music to pass the time.

We've had some fun scraps with the various residents of the East in Kalevala, Scalding, ER, and that area while they've been engaging in sov fights. We have utterly no dog in that hunt, but will go shoot anyone we can find and get tackle on. Biggest light was in KZF where map said ~35 in space. We burned the 20 or so jumps, only to see the light start dissipating just as we get close (fml). We get a scout into system, holding a couple out, and see SBUs onlining with 15 mins or so to go.

So we wait to see if anything shows up. Suddenly a wild Goon gang of 15ish or so frigs-BCs appears and leeroys into us, no idea why or what they were doing out there but we appreciate the the fight. I'm going to guess they found a wormhole or something into the area.

http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13735014

But not much seemed to be going on in KZF, home of Imperial Legion (I think, at least for now). Sad face; so we burn toward a few other lights, which turn out to be nothing but ratting systems. Then one of our very observant meta-scouts links an interesting KM: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=13735102. When we can't find a good fight, we generally just turn on each other, so this KM sparks a retarded debate on exactly how much LO a rapier needs to light a cyno, and the probability he was an in-cyno for a gang or something tasty like caps. So we burn a scout over while raging at each other (standard decision making procedure for our clusterfuck FC style), to find out that he was in fact an in-cyno, for a moderate sized 15ish man 401k / Thorn gang that is repping the SBUs and skirmishing with ImpL bombers.

We burn over, one of our duders derps into the system and possibly spooks 401k, causing us to miss them all on the warp-in. :RAGE: But, luckily their warrior spirit kicks in and 401k/Thorn warp back in on us at 40 or 50. We have a material DPS advantage, but they have the rep advantage with 4 scimis and 2 falcons to our 1 hero scimi. Our tier 3 pilots are salivating at the opportunity to blap stuff b/c we think they're in insta-locking anti-bomber arty canes (and b/c of :falcon:); we get one falcon, (who isn't showing up and Dog / Eve-kill is acting screwy), three canes and a talos at which point its clear we're alphaing right through reps and 401k/Thorn opts to disengage, losing a couple of scimis tackled behind.

GFs exchanged, we loot and are about leave, when Imperial Legion gets jealous of our fun and warps in on us in a bunch of drakes / scimis / stuff. WOOT! Bonus round begins. A quick 5-10 minute scrap commences, with us cycling targets, trying to break reps while keeping range. We lose a cane (post your loss coward) and nearly one of our taloses, but are killing a few here and there as well. ImpL realizes they're light on tackle and opts to disengage, as they're not really killing many of us once we get properly to range.

However, we have awoken momma bear and she's going to defend her den. ImpL reships, an archon is undocked, and they warp back to us for double bonus round, this time with more dudes, more scimis, and MOAR drakes! But still very little tackle, which proves to be a problem for them. Our tackle latches onto the archon - we figure as long as we can keep him on field, they'll keep coming in to save him - and we go to work on the rest of the fleet. We're unable to break the brick tanked drakes due to scimis + carrier reps but are blapping right through everything else. As duders die they reship and return, and more drakes keep landing; after 15 mins or so of brawling at overheated point range from the carrier we are eventually forced away, allowing the archon to warp off. We grab what we can, the rest disengage, and many GFs are exchanged in local.

Thanks for the fights to our warrior friends in 401k / Thorn and angry bears in ImpL. I'm nearly certain we got fraps of some of it, at least the last round, so we'll try to throw some up on youtube if it looks decent. We're pretty bad at fraps and actually creating vids though so no promises.

Yeah we made an attempt to roll through, and almost killed a drake elsewhere, but alphastar was having none of the whole "well no shit I won't engage a fleet twice my size in an alpha config when i have too many melty ships" thing. He instead decided to commit 90% of his force to the lone drake his prober tackled (the rest of us rolling safe'd as advertised). This allowed us to escape and roll out to safetey more or less. We had a few ships caught between the escape and jumps, but nothing horribly significant.

negative props to alphastar for not recognizing us wanting to leave (not that that's technically a requirement of an FC) when we could have avoided him at will (logging, blueballing, etc.)
questionable props to stevie for trying to fight but notsureifserious about whether he knew where alphastar was or not.

We went through curse again last night and brushie et al stayed docked / scouted us a few times.

Thorn/401k had about 60? Logged in, we had 20 in gang. Gave them a reasonable amount if time to form up to fight 20, killed a couple unlucky/bads. I finally decided anything they had formed up by then was going to dumpster what we had so we bailed out.

Our corporation (THORN Syndicate) is quite heavy late USTZ (ie, PST) and Lucian James is up all night when he's on so there are often people active in the vicinity of Curse ranging from HED all the way to RYC in Scaling Pass.

we saw the frigate gang, and the was on top of about 50 or so in LJ-.

Any chance you can point us in the direction of other moderate sized gangs out past curse or so? Dotlan always seems pretty empty ....

I resent my honoure being called into question. My hastily formed BC fleet was not working in conjunction with the THORN xX420Xx Moonin fleet.

What indet is referring to is riverini hopping over from THORN onto 410K comms and being like, "Hold up, we are cominkf back to keel dem."

You came into our staging system, and the members of 401K who can't be bothered with Friday Night Lights formed up a gang to fight you. Friday Night Lights also saw you in our shared intel channel, and turned around to kill you. They arrived before our gang even had time to fully form and get a fight without THORN descending upon us.

It's ok the general Curse HonoUr was restored tonight by the engagement of two fine T1 cruiser blobs. We ended up with more than i initially suspected, but when we neared HLW we thought Thorn may have brought more backup from 401k. As it happens we didnt really care because lolt1cruisers... (our FC was surprisingly timid given that, but eventually found his testes and brought us in to the fight)... turns out curse Bros didnt have as much, as indeterminancy had said (Thorn/401k had their fleet split up weird so we were smelling trap of some sort).

Fight was had: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13976954

GFs and amarr victors in local. Felt like they went after our potential FCs one by one, but then I was in a vexor so kind of a natural primary anyways i guess.

In any case, I managed to buy a ful meta0 fit thorax (with the exception of a T2 RCU) in the same system (I mentioned how crap my dps was with meta0+T1 ammo... and i was still doing more than half the fleet ... wtf)

I only mention this last part because we later tried to engage a CFC nanofleet full of shiny vagabonds and cynabals who ran from us like cowards because we wouldnt jump in to kiters set up off the gate (nbs).... but CFC being CFC managed to lose a vagabond anyways.... to my meta0 fit thorax landing first tackle and getting top damage.

Thanks for flying around to meet us. We had a new FC last night and a new doctrine which personally I am not a fan of (hence my presence in a taranisisis as i have exactly 2 armor ships...an abaddon and a guardian).

Expect lots of this kind of thing (small to med gangs in cheap, funky shit) this week as we're generally stood down as I said and encouraging eager people to 'have a go'.

IMP-L (Imperial Legion)...if you can get them to fight you, are fucking terrible and deserve to be expelled from 0.0 Sov in the worst way. Take that T1 cruiser gang from last night with some additional tackle and a prober and you can camp an entire station system with a few guys on each gate getting kills. If/when they form, you will rape them. They have two doctrines: Drakes and Bombers. Plan accordingly.

So, Scalding Pass HJ-, KZF, RYC, 28Y

A fleet of snipey-ish CVA BC's visited our home system last night, while I was leading a mixed shield fleet through IMP-L space, ready to provide subcap support to some caps we had structure grinding. Upon seeing them in intel channel, however, we raced home to cut them off. One of the SHIVA guys lit a cyno at their deathstar POS, and CVA warped to it, losing a number of ships. When my fleet jumped into system, they warped off to sun, and we did so, too, hoping to catch them. They landed a little bit before us, and thus, we were only able to point a few things. They then docked up in station, so we resumed our capital coverage.

gf CVA; it's refreshing to have people roam through Curse instead of gatecamp.

401K has an endemic lack of Lachesis pilots, so we weren't really able to hold too many ships down until our final warp-in landed us a bubble.

Been a long time since I've done the sniper warping dance.

We did force 401k off the field twice (and they bubbled themselves in nicely for us once as well) before we were too slow on the draw and got caught. Good engagement and good practice run.

Edit: despite eventually getting caught I was convinced the theory was decent given we even managed to alpha a couple muninns off the field

Eternal Evocations left their safe ratting pocket for the scariness of Curse in a T1 Cruiser gang. We played around in a few ships while a gang formed, and then voila:

Lets bump this thread \o/

My lowsec corp abandoned our warm nest in Molden Heath for one night and roamed with 4x RR Arbitrator, 1x Ruppie (for damage) and 1x Stabber Fleet (Tackle) * through nearby L0L.L0L sec.
And eh .. this is my first BR on English, so please bear with me.

From Molden Heath we entered some empty Great Wildlands systems, after some jumps we found a gang consisting of Sleip, 2 Canes, Talos, SFI and a Scimi.
SFI was prime, when he almost was out of armor we change prime to Scimi because of FC fuckup, ECM and miscommunication. As soon as they realize they could not break our tank (~2200 HP/s) they all got away .. because we fucked up again. No one had tackle on ships that had aggression :(

Next stop: Curse, M-N7WD
We where waiting on a gate and saw 1x Tengu, 1x Typhoon and 1x Talos on D-scan. As soon as they landed on grid we jumped and they jumped with us. Prime was Talos who was down quick. (http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=14485723) Took some time to take down the Typhoon (http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=14485722) but he did not do much damage with his torps on our AB Cruisers.
While we lootet a Mael and Fleet Tempest jumped in. A mael with 2x X-large ASB can easy take down a couple of cruisers, right? Well, not if you don't take any Cap Boosters with you. *boom* (http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=14485720)
We scramed+webbed the Fleet Tempest ~16km of the constalation gate, but we got some trouble with his smartbomb. I tried bumping him but was not that successful, he was getting close to the gate. Suddenly he aggresses again and local spiked.
*HEAT HEAT HEAT*
Triple plated Fleet tempest down. (http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=14485718) Damage Taken: 73,677. It took forever with low damage cruiser :S
Now there were multiple canes and small tackle on grid. All spreading there neuts on our RR ships. Our capchain broke down and we all died while trying to shoot a cane.

BR/Related kill: http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=14485706

It was an awesome fight! I did not have so much fun in a long time, thanks goes out to 'The Gorgon Empire'.
The T1 cruisers are cheap (32 Mio. ISK), they get underestimated and are fun to fly.

T1 RR cruisers actually achieving something is p hilarious. A lot of it is expectation, as you mentioned + the fact that noone knows you.
"Oh look random scrubs in t1 cruisers, time to take out that solo BS i always wanted to fly and 0wn!" - when you actually had a proper gang concept going (armor links, remoterep, tracking disruption).

Also you guys totally should do 0.0 more.
You're a leap away from the 7Q- scrubcamp which you can bust nbd with 3-4 people.
You're also like 10j away from Drone Regions, which are perfect for gangs of 4-7 people due to entities like Ethereal Dawn, Persona Non Gratis etc.

root
August 31 2012, 01:24:59 PM
Yeah, we had some good experience with drone regions. We tried RR Ferox there. They get also underestimated but when you fly 9 of them in one gang it looks like a proper gang concept again. Maybe mix some cyclone in or something.
http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13981987 <-- That was our first RR BC fight, we made some anchor mistakes and had trouble with enemy ECM. But damn, after we fixed those problems that fleet ruled. We made ~14 canes + 2 carrier dock up again :D

But we also had some bad experience in 0.0. It's just not fun when you get camped in by a fleet that is two times as big and has excess to Jumpbridges to cut you of :(

I will take a look at the 7Q- scrubs ;-) Thanks for the advice

Edit: Looks like we have bin visiting the 7Q- folks with our feroxes: http://spam.eve-kill.net/?a=kill_related&kll_id=13983982 As far as i remember they had similar numbers, but not that coordinated.

It's been over six months since the last post in the old Curse thread, so I thought I'd start a new one. This is my take on the current state of Curse. I'm still new to the area and don't know a lot of the players, so please correct me where I'm wrong and I'll update this post.

Agony moved into Hemin and we are starting to learn who is who. We like being in the pipe because it brings activity. Most of my knowledge is still limited to the shallow areas of Curse. Also keep in mind that I'm US TZ.

FIGL moved into BPK- about a month ago but I haven't seen them roaming much outside of their pocket.

LEGIO ASTARTES ARCANUM lives nearby (lowsec?) and can often be found camping the Utopia gate in Doril as well as roaming a bit.

Outbreak lives in D87E but they don't seem to be very active in the US Time Zone.

Sturmgrenadier lives in Utopia and can sometimes be found camping one of the gates in there with cloakies, or else harassing neighboring systems.

Appetite for Destruction lives in K-QWHE and is extremely fond of camping their two gates. Recenly camps have been as large as 20+ people and they seem to have blued up with some other locals, including Eviscerate, Art of War/OUCH, and Sturmgredadier. A4D also frequently pokes at the neighbors.

Most days one or more blobs from the blue donut come through, scattering the smaller local groups but I'm not sure if they're finding many real fights. These are the usual suspects: RAZOR, FA, LAWN, TEST, etc.

Hot dropping is quite common in Curse. If you see a RAZOR in space without his blob nearby, it's 90% probably a hot drop. Red Alliance is another common hot dropper (and if they're not hot dropping they're probably sniping).

SniggWaffe will often roam into Curse from nearby lowsec in a variety of gang sizes. Other groups that will bring in micro or small gangs include Gorgon Empire, Darkspawn, Capital Punishment, Univsersal Cosmonautics, Nulli Secunda, and Nexus Fleet. I like most of these guys because they seem to enjoy a good fight.

More intel to come as I figure things out. Please tell me who lives where deeper in Curse. Also, battle reports welcome!

UPDATE: per posts below, Brushie and Mafia Redux have moved into Curse. I'm not sure where they live, but they seem blue to each other.

UPDATE: The A4D bluefest has added another member. They are working with DNS. Soon it'll be just like Syndicate of a year ago :)

Apparently this is a return for them, though I didn't know much about them until they moved to Molden Heath. Previously we'd encountered them in GW with battleship fleets and triage on stand-by (We threw their triage under a friendly 'bus). We had some GW dudes tell us they were very dread-heavy, but we haven't encountered the dread fleet directly, though they did RF a couple of our towers in rapid succession about a week ago, likely with the dreads.

When we've seen them roaming it's normally 10+ T3s with 3 or so logi, and they showed up to the aforementioned POS timers with 15ish 1400mm Tornados.

But mostly we just encounter their carriers running L5 missions in the Istodard pocket.

Not much of an AAR but I had a fun 2v10(ish) in Asabona (technically Derelik, but it's Curse-area).

I found a cynabal camping the Asabona->Onsooh gate. Interested to see how he was fit, I sat on gate with him, bumped him around a bit, checked out his guns. He had 220's fit, and when he tackled me, he had a long point + web. Suspicion of armor Cynabal: high.

Jumping through the gate reveals a rupture, Eos (lol), and a Loki on the other side. Nothing seems to have packed a scram there, even with the loki I crashed gate pretty easily. Back on the other side I decide I have a better chance trying to outrun the alleged armor cynabal, so I make a run for it, popping shots at him as we go. He chases me, but with T2 1600 plate + trimarks he's only breaking 1700m/s where I'm making 2km/s with heat; I eventually burnt out of point range and warp. A curse shows up somewhere at this time too.

I run off to station to repair and ping for my buddy Yoshi, who had fortunately logged off the night earlier in Sendaya nary two jumps away. I get back on the gate with the Cynabal, this time at range; and Yoshi reports that more stuff had joined the gang on the other side; a curse (different from the one still in local with me), sacrilege, a rifter or two, and a stabber, along with two exequrors. Fortunately some frig gang lands and the whole camp scatters on both sides (lol). With the whole hostile gang split up in two different systems around different grids, and the cynabal landing back on gate, we decide it's take to make our move. Yoshi warps to the gate in Onsooh and jumps through into Asabona, burning off the gate as a stabber chases after him. We kill it pretty quickly, but the rest of their gang regroups on-gate and doesn't seem to keen to chase after us. Eventually a rupture warps off towards a nearby celestial and we reason he's trying to get a warp-in on us.

Soon enough he sure does, but due to us not being retarded we were already aligned and ready and so by the time he was lockable we were already 30km from it. As he landed though the Cynabal takes it upon himself to OH his micro and burn out to grab us; unfortunately he underestimated the sheer DPS of two taloses and got shredded to pieces within a few KM from scramming Yoshi. At this point we make the painstaking decison whether to loot or pop the wreck, deciding on the latter (the loki was in warp range) and our attention focuses on the rupture still 90km off-gate and well out of rep range of his exeq's. He's paying attention though and warps off as we close range, but then I get the bright idea to warp down to the bottom sentry gun at the gate, landing us close to their two exeqs. Most of them started scattering and warping at this point, but we managed to kill one exeq at least. They then pounced around on-grid safes until we decided it was time to head home.

Syndicate Exodus 2012 represent. There was simply no reason to stay.
Currently curse and syndicate are horribly close to each other in terms of average activity, ships flown, combat sizes, etc.. And yes the syndicate layout is superior to curse, but curse has the benefit of lots of side regions that aren't completely devoid of life (looking at you cloud/outer ring).

And really, some times you get sick and tired of your next door neighbors and actually want to roam further then 5 system down. In Curse you have a pretty wide choice of close-by regions, in syndi you first have to slog trough the ring to find some inhabited space.

But we'll be back, Syndicate is much like an abusive significant other in that way. It keeps beating you up, but you keep returning to it anyway in the hope that this time things will be better.

For now however; Curse is the place to be. Fights everywhere, interested neighbors constantly peaking in to see what's happening, and always a rzr arazu in sight to bait into dropping on your cruiser as you warp away like a small child ringing the door-bell and running off laughing while the befuddled elderly opens the door.

You've just listed reasons to go to Curse. The location is active, the pipeline means that there's constant roaming gangs going through the area. There's activity from skirmish level FC's who are trying to earn their place. The jewing in curse allows people to keep their wallet large esustain

Because everything that is good about curse, is better in Syndicate.

The location isn't bad, being in a pipeline means that you've got constant, regular traffic. Skrimish level FC's from sov groups are trying to earn their place, and take out small roaming gangs through the area. There's decent jewing, which allows people to continue to pvp. You have a plethora of blops targets. All in all, it's a nice place to live.

Curse is an interesting place, and after living in both Syndicate and Curse I have to say Curse is the superior region. We're not surrounded by sov, we have lowsec (Derelik) connecting to our region. We also are in close range to many regions via JF/Carrier/Black Ops. I've never been in such an awesome region for Black ops before. Also as another poster noted above me, we have actually lively sov holders within 10-15 jumps of us. So if we want to small gang PVP we stay in the region, if we want to fight a blob, we go a short trip out of Curse and have plenty of options. Syndicate has Cloud Ring, Outer Ring which are dead. Fountain can be fun to fight TEST if they were actually living there (but they aren't), and you could go to Fade/Dek to fight Goons but they will blob really hard at times. Curse has currently been a perfect mix of everything.

As far as I have gathered, the current geographical makeup of the region is as follows -

LEGIO - Doril/Sendaya [Usually camps, not roaming very often]
A4D + other smaller corps - K-Q [Usually camps, not roaming very often]
Mafia Redux + Brushie - D87 [We roam more than camp, and counter gangs coming through our pipe]
0utbreak - D87 [Seem to both roam & counter stuff in the pipe but are EUTZ]
Flying Dangerous - BPK [I haven't seen them camp since I don't go to this pocket often, but they do roam a fair bit]
Darkside - G-0 [I rarely see them roaming around, then again RUSTZ]
Gorgon Empire - XX9 [Again RUSTZ, don't know what they are doing]
Eye for an Eye - J7A [USTZ, seem to roam a little and try to oddly camp their dead end system]

On top of this, there is a random corp from Tribal Band that lives in J7A, there is also a corp from COVEN that lives in the HADOC/OSY area.

Curse seems to be a good mix of Russian and USTZ groups. We usually get a nice amount of traffic from the local sov groups rolling through the area which makes for a nice fleet for us (Mafia Redux + Brushie) to counter. I have to say of all the places we have lived lately (Uemon, Assah, Ennur, Eugrana) Curse has really been a blast. Quite a nice mix of small gang / medium gang fights to be had. I'll write up a battle report the next time we get into something noteworthy.

Wanted to make a map like in the syndicate thread, but quickly discovered this required effort, so I'll just add to the list Bizmarhk mentioned.

Eye for an Eye - J7A [USTZ, seem to roam a little and try to oddly camp their dead end system]

On top of this, there is a random corp from Tribal Band that lives in J7A, there is also a corp from COVEN that lives in the HADOC/OSY area.


Agony - Hemin [Will occasionally camp the RMOC gate, otherwise roaming decentralized or otherwise]
Universal cosmonautics - Uoptia [Mostly roaming RUSTV]
Hard Alliance - Hemin/Jorund [Sit docked in their omen/aug fleet. (Not even kidding)]
OUCH - CL-85V [Camp the system, blue to A4D]

Noteworthy neighbours that will swing into curse on occasion.
Nexus Fleet - Tenerifis [Have come down to curse quite a few times now, seem to be cool dudes]
Red Alliance - Insmother/scalding [They occasionally come trough Curse, especially their Red Uni ppl. Some fun small fights]
Sniggwaffe - Derelik [Occasionally will roam into curse with about a 10-15 man cruiser gang or something]


A4D has really become more camp oriented in the last month though, which is a shame. During EUtz they now pretty much always put up large bubbles over the RMOC and CL- gates and just camp those bubbles for hours. Going up the VOL pipe solo/2-5 people in EU tz has become a roll of the dice on whether you can get to VOL-MI or not. Won't lie, it's pretty gay at the moment.

Waffles brought a small Tier 3 gang into Curse last night with about 4 taloses, a tengu, a caracal, and some tackle in order to chase down a LEGIO gang of about 15 cruisers/BCs & 2 scimmy's. We got all the way to Doril when we noticed they'd picked up a few more AC nados, making the fight pretty one-sided. Still, we'd flown all this way, and LEGIO aren't known to be the best, so we opted to attempt a fight anyway.

They ran, finally pos'ing up in Doril, citing they didn't want to be hotdropped. In Tornados. Versus taloses.

They were probably mentally scarred from Brushie/Mafia deep dicking them with our 15 man thorax gang.

Mafia Redux & Brushie was roaming in a gang of 9x Vaga, 2 Scimi, 2 Lach, 1 Huggin, 3 Ceptors looking for a fight. We didn't want a long roam, so we headed over to C3- (Nexus Fleet) to see if Nexus would give us a fight as they usually do. 40 in local, 16 in our fleet - things were looking bleak as we find these sov holder types need around 60-80 in local to form up a gang that gives them the confidence to fight. We were promptly told by a Nexus scrub that they wanted to fight, but didn't have the numbers because their guys were on "deployment." So with that we headed back towards home, when one of our members in fleet noticed an odd local count on the map in the back waters of scalding pass.

Our fleet was just reaching home, when our scout reported that it was a Nexus Fleet Nado/Scythe gang shooting a tower in F2-NXA. The reported gang was 10 Nado's, 5 Scythe, 1 Talos, 1 Naga, and 2 Rupture. Nexus had a scout two jumps out of the pipe that they were in, and once they saw us their fleet started to pick up speed. As we jumped into local the Nexus Fleet warped off, leaving behind what must have been an AFK POS basher (http://mafiaredux.com/kb/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=22115).

Nexus had warped off to a safe, and luckily we had some probes + we were in a pipe constellation so the only way for them out of it was to go through us. Nexus Fleet being the good guys that they are decided to fight, and rightfully so, a fleet of 10 Nado's + 5 Scythe (recall that a Scythe reps about 70% as effective as a Scimi, so technically they out Logi us) should decimate a fleet of Vagabonds. But alas, Mafia and Brushie were to prevail on this night! Our probing alt locates the hostile fleets safe spot, and warps the fleet to them @ 20km, and the fight begins -

The Nado's immediately begin to burn away, at the same time we up our transversal, and start testing our DPS & tanks. Our Lachesis is immediately primaried, and starts to go down, luckily our Scimitars were able to overheat and keep him alive as our DPS started to work on their Tornado's. For the most part we shot primaries with a distance down fashion, taking off the field a Tornado, and a Rupture, then back to more Tornado's. As Nexus's DPS began to succumb to the swam of the ever so sexy new Vagabond's, our Scimitar's got to take a sigh of relief for no one fell victim to the auto cannon barrage. After popping some more Nado's, Scythe, and Ruptures, Nexus was forced off the field with their remaining forces, leaving us the spoils of battle before retiring home for the evening.

All in all, good fights were thrown around, and props to Nexus for staying on the field for as long as they did. What amounted to a relatively even fight was to be had tonight, and resulted in great fun for our fleet.

Curse was quite busy today. I learned that Darkside actually no longer lives here, but in Stain so that leaves G-0 relatively empty (will correct my map soon).

With that, Darkside was shooting C0VEN & Cartel in H-ADOC, not sure over what really as they were all speaking Russian and I got into the system late. It appeared to be Naga's/Basi vs. BS Fleet, I have no idea who won. Mafia Redux and Brushie attempted a bombing run on the Darkside Naga fleet as it returned back towards Stain with no success. We'll have to practice more 8-)

However, on our return trip we noticed Darkspawn had about 10-15 man fleet slowly trailing our bombers. We got home, and reshipped once we heard what they were in - 4x Hurricane, 3x Vaga, 2x Drake, Harbinger, Ferox, Sabre.

Mafia Redux and Brushie countered with, 6x Thorax, 2x Augor, and a Prophecy. Knowing that we had an edge over them with our logistic ships, we felt obliged to jump into them. Darkspawn was ready as they had bubbled up already once I loaded system.

Immediately I was primaried (fail on my part for naming my character with a B), punched my afterburner on and I began to tank the DPS. Darkspawn had a nifty little Ace up their sleeve, a double damp Drake. Surprisingly, he put one damp on my Thorax, and one on an Augor. Why he didn't commit both to the Augor is beyond me. On top of this, they used a handful of ECM drones to successfully jam both of our Augors, and have one damped out long enough to start to break one of them.

By this time though, we have killed a Vagabond, Sabre, Drake and two Hurricanes. We lost one of our Augors, and while they focused on the second one we continued to take down their fleet. The fight ended up being a good old fashioned brawl. Props to Darkspawn for bringing it and committing their whole gang as we did. Our logistics while they both died kept our fleet alive long enough for us to clear the field and eventually loot everything easily replacing our losses.

In other recent news, we've had a shitload of new russians come into Hemin. So called Hard Alliance ( https://zkillboard.com/alliance/99001830/ ), Yesterday Hemin local was at 80 people with BSOD, hard alliance and RED in local. From trying to translate what they said in local they all seemed to accuse one another of being blue with agony, while all 6-10 of us online where trying to kill whatever would hold still long enough. Unfortunately we are really scary to 20 man fleets apparently.

Hard alliance ran away and docked up their 20 man omen + augorer fleet from our hyperion, oracle and atron fleet concept, and when BSOD came in with a 25 man naga fleet they didn't want to engage our 10 man deimost TWEED fleet, citing that the single loki we had was too stronk.

The King busy tending to matters IRL but the legend goes something like this. Our FC, the venerable Phantom of Fethabolis, found a WH from our pocket to Fethabolis. Phobia. began with a 10ish man gang and baited a Unclaimed tornado gang to their doom on the worm hole itself. They pulled back to reship and sent a scout through the worm hole. The Phantom, being wise beyond his years, hid his fleet in a neighboring system until the scout left. Unclaimed then attempted to bait the masterbaters of Phobia. with a cyno Armageddon, directly on the worm hole.

By this time, Phobia. had assembled a decent little Tech3 gang. At first only a couple of carriers and the 3 Nyxes came through the cyno and the 3 Phobia. guardians were able to hold reps. Unclaimed carriers continued to stream in and reps could only be broken on the Unclaimed fleet with large amounts of bumping. The 3 Nyxes were successfully bubbled for 10 minutes while bat phones were arranged but unfortunately no one has ever heard of Feythabolis and midpoints could not be arranged in time. After 10 minutes Unclaimed. brought an abaddon fleet to save their terrified super pilots. Phobia. was forced to jump back through their WH. One noble Zealot pilot ignored the order to jump so that the battle report would show more of what the enemy had on field.

Here is a visual aid to reference when referring to my previous battle report:

http://i.imgur.com/gsXBCCm.png

You can clearly see how the Phantom positioned his fleet to counter the Unclaimed. Nyxes.

As a benevolent King, I seek to appease the masses.

While leading a cavalry charge of Ruptures down the K-Q Pipe, I received word by Royal Messenger Pigeon service that a horde of infidels was entering the Trap of Paradise Constellation! With 9-10 BC's (some of which do not show on the BR), 3 Basilisks and Links, it would require stern discipline, even with our superior numbers. The Royal Cavalry had 7-8 Ruptures arty ruptures and a Scythe and our Back up led by The Warden of Wicked Creek himself brough a Rapier, an additional Scythe, and several more Ruptures.

The Invaders poked their head into Holy D87E-A but inexplicably turned around after only a brief moment and scouted The Royal Cavalry. They jumped into our fleet on a region gate and re-approached as backup landed behind them. They jumped back into K-B and the pieces were set.

Like a chess game, they castled and decided to make their stand by re-approaching the region gate and we jumped in to their fleet, split wildly apart. We knew we would have to slice through the armor of their superior logistics or lose the war of attrition. Initially much of our alpha was as far as 60 KM off of the Basi which we primaried. The call at the outset was to starburst off the gate, but it became clear that we had to focus our volley fire or be picked apart piece meal. Continuing with the Chess analogy, our random Rook never landed a single jam against their logistics due to their Proteus links.

While they were still spread out on the region gate in disarray, we formed into a V-Formation of Ruptures and stabbed their first Basi right in the eye ball. The second Basilisk died soon after that but the enemy FC had the audacity to primary the King Himself! As my chariot melted around me, I overheated all of my mods and burned out of the fray in 39% structure. 2 More of the Royal Guard escaped in armor before the rest of the invaders could be dispatched (http://kb.phobia-alliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=704).

I may be a bit bitter about it at the moment.

Attention subjects!

I bring good tidings from my Kingdom!

A small Init. Caracal gang had the audacity, nay, the nerve to travel through my kingdom. They had 7 Caracals and a Celestis. We brought 6 Arty Ruptures, 1 Scythe, and 2 tackle. We jumped into them while they were set up off gate making for a surprisingly even fight. Although, the Royal Cavalry is fast, we could not match the speed of the Caracals and our Scythe was damped to Helen Keller levels. Luckily for us, Init does not know how to small gang. They had nothing to hold tackle so whenever one of our Ruptures were primaried, it could easily burn out of range while the rest pursued. With some nice maneuvering our tackle managed to scram 1 Caracal at a time to be quickly dispatched. What should have been a relatively even fight turned into a massacre (http://kb.phobia-alliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=1158) stretched in a long line 1000 Km off the gate.

Also, check out this nice video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvCuF8BaecI) by Mach'ette. 14:55 shows us killing some T1 cruiser gang but I can't remember which one to find the BR for.

Unleash The Kraken.!

In the deepest cesspit of Curse [UW9B-F] lurks a beast of unimaginable terror! Fortunately, this beast fly's somewhat kitchen sink fleet comps, roams, is USTZ, and can field 20ish man gangs. After the Kraken. left it's lair and discovered Phobia doing what we do best (repping POS's) it was decided that the Knights of Curse must form to strike down this threat!

We managed to slip out of it's horrid tentacles and pull back to reship into 8 Ruptures, 2 Scythe, 2 Tackle. Their gang consisted of 6 Hurricanes, 3 Osprey, Falcon, 2 Celestis, and a lot of T1 cruisers+tackle. Undaunted, the Knights of Curse chased the Kraken all the way to the gates of it's lair. When they realized that they outnumbered us almost 2-1 they warped to our gate with rage in their eyes!

We star-bursted off gate but took a couple of quick losses due to their large amount of tackle, and e-War making our logistics useless. After we cleared tackle, and knocked out their falcon, we managed to create a little space between the Monster and ourselves. We pulled them off gate nicely and knocked a Hurricane out. Once they chased us 120ish KM off the gate (Friendly fleet was 160ish) We warped to a wreck and killed one of the Celestis and a tackle. Unfortunately, we were down 4 Ruptures and were forced to safe up. Meanwhile, the Kracken. nursed it's wound's and further fleshed out it's fleet.

Situation at this point. (http://kb.phobia-alliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=1505)

We called for some backup and recommenced the joust (http://kb.phobia-alliance.com/?a=kill_related&kll_id=1513)! This time, we had 7 additional Ruptures and a Bellicose. The battle report is not accurate (They had around 22 the second fight) but this time the Kracken. followed us through a gate. Our back up warped in from 20 AU out to 50 KM and the original Knights starbursted off the gate until they could link with the back up. Kracken. had lost all of it's fast tackle and it's remaining eWar died before they could properly set up so it quickly turned into a route.

Many GF's and hopefully future small gang fights to come from this beast!

Just to keep this thread alive, here are a few minor news bytes from our little section of Curse.

Unlucky Nomad Lucky for Agony
We were running an internal training class when one of us undocked to see a Nomad who had just landed out of docking range on his cyno, right in front of the undock due to horrible cyno placement. Our undocking pilot, who fortuitously had a scram and double webs, valiantly hit his MWD and without altering his undock vector, bumped the Nomad a bit further out and called in the (reshipped) training fleet:
http://www.agony-unleashed.com/killboard/index.php?a=kill_detail&kll_id=105308

Appetite For Destruction has left the building
It appears that our pesky perma-camping neighbors have left K-Q so they can participate in the greener pastures of the Syndicate shitposting thread. I base this on their significantly reduced presence in Curse and the plethora of Syndicate killmails on their vintage 1995 killboard: http://killboard.appetite4destruction.net/#
One wonders what their blues in Art of War/OUCH will do without them. One positive side effect of A4D's departure is the opening up of the pipe into eastern Curse to solo and small gangs.

Brave Newbies roam aborted in 13 seconds
Brave Newbies live in lowsec about 8 hops from Curse and are frequently seen roaming with fleets of 20-30 frigates, dessies, and random stuff. They seem happy to engage in many situations but many of them still seem to be learning the ropes of nullsec PVP. We managed to capitalize on their combination of bravery and newbiness with this clean sweep of a bombing run last night:
http://www.agony-unleashed.com/killboard/index.php/kill_related/106097/

T1 kiting cruiser gangs are a go
These gangs are great fun and very survivable and effective when fighting larger groups on their home turf. I highly recommend them, if you have the means (and who doesn't?). Here are a couple of small skirmishes where we acquitted ourselves quite nicely:
http://www.agony-unleashed.com/killboard/index.php/kill_related/105018/
http://www.agony-unleashed.com/killboard/index.php/kill_related/103001/

Cloaky Camping Crew
The infamous Lithia Tsanov, her crew from Quantum Link Company, and their army of OOC alts are back to camping the shallow route into Curse from Sendaya. Lithia herself has joined FIGL, who now tag along on these camps to provide extra firepower. They will safely gank many solo ships, but decline any other engagements. At a minimum they will have a cloaky Sabre, Falcon, and Loki links, and there will be no evidence of a camp until its too late for their hapless victim.


HOTDROP SECTION
The hot drops in Curse continue apace, now with extended range due to the Blops buff.

Initiative Mercenaries hotdrop gone wrong
Proteus bait is even tasier than Arazu bait. This one dropped an IM covert fleet on about 3 of us on a gate and ganked our Talos. We warped out, they warped out, and we warped back in to loot the field. Then the fun began: one of their bombers decloaks (or is decloaked) on the field, off gate, and we kill him. Their bombers then start warping back one by one to the spot where the first one died. A bomber lands, we pop it, another bomber lands, we pop it, repeated about half a dozen times. Then, for the grand finale: instead of another bomber, their Panther lands. By this time we had rallied more troops and we tackled and killed the hapless Blops.
http://www.agony-unleashed.com/killboard/index.php/kill_related/105720/

DNS failed hotdrop becomes arranged honor brawl
DNSBLACK baited us with the ubiquitous "solo, slow-to-cloak, reapproach gate" Arazu, which we engaged from a safe distance so we could (and did) GTFO when the cyno went up. But now that DNS had bridged all this way, they wanted some action and DNSBLACK offered us an 8v8 honor fight in T1 cruisers and below, no links. They parked their cloakies in a nearby station and bought ships off the local market as we reshipped next door. Luckily we chose a brawling setup, since once we got into the same system to fight they stipulated that we would have to warp to zero. The fight lasted about 15 minutes, which was plenty of time for our various pilots to drop connection, burn out guns, and run out of ammo. In the end, we prevailed in an awesome brawl, props to DNS for their e-honor.

PL hotdrops in style
Not to be outdone by peasant hot droppers, PL decides to show that they can drop more than just 40 Titans. They can also drop 40 Redeemers.

Technically this first fight took place in GW but since we live in curse (and GW is so shit it doesnt deserve a thread) i figured id post it here;

Roaming GW
We rolled around in a 15 man frigate fleet to try out our glorious new logi-burst setup and ran into a Solar Wing/Solar Fleet camp in N-RAEL. Solar had 10 assorted cruisers and battlecruisers so we went in and engaged. They had no logi and we managed to tackle a bunch of their pilots 200ish km off the gate.

As our fleet jumped into N-RAEL a crane cross jumped us so i did what any good sabre pilot would do; ignore the FC and decloak the crane for maximum killmail whoring. One of our logi pilots decided to stay and whore onto the crane mail as well while everyone else rolled into the battle. After killing the crane and waiting out the combat timer both of us joined our fleet and found the other logi frig couldnt quite keep up and we had lost a jaguar and a firetail. (Sorry bros)

With our second logi now on field we spread points and slowly chewed through their fleet as they were unable to break our tank. After a while a 100mn tengu decided to make a run for it so one of our wolf pilots stuck with him even though the FC told him to ignore it, once we cleared the field the tengu had already burned +150km from us so we warped in and opened up. It tanked us for a while and a cynabal came to help it but died and eventually we popped the Tengu as well; 2.4 bill isk deadspace fit. No fancy implants though.

Killboard BR: http://www.ineluctable.eu/kb/?a=kill_related&kll_id=17814
I think the Kneipenterroristen. are someone they fought before us, dont recall seeing them on field.

Going back to curse
On the way home we ran into a cruiser fleet from Ivy League but between their numbers and the 3 logis we figured engaging was a bad idea in our frigate fleet so we reshipped to tiers 3 and chased em down the curse pipe. After they saved up we camped the hemin gate for a bit hoping they would come out which they did not. Agony empire however did.

We had 2 recons, a dictor, 6 tiers 3's and 2 scimis. Agony had 4 hacs, 1 bc, 3 cruisers and 2 oneiroses. We lost a tornado fairly early on but managed to hold reps after that. (though so did Agony) We contemplated bugging out a few times but between 3 or 4 guys scrambled we figured we might as well fight to the death. Neither side made much progress so Agony moved back to the gate, we focused on one of their logis as it was 50something off the gate and managed to get him into about half structure thanks to jam drones.

Unfortunately Agony started popping our heroic dishonor drones and their tank caught up again. A deimos was tackled 90ish off the gate so we eventually gave up, switched to the deimos and murdered it after which agony jumped back out.

The two trashers are neutrals that warped in and engaged us after the fight for some reason.

Every rose has it's Thorn and Kingdom Curse is no exception.

Thorn Alliance apparently decided the best region in EVE (Curse) was a good place to lick their wounds and rebuild. What better way to do that then to base in XX9 and pick on some poor Legio Astartes Arcanum POS's. Unfortunately for Thorn, Legio is my favorite target in all of EVE and I will do whatever it takes for them to reform into their former glorious -A- pet status. With that in mind, we sprung into action to defend the Legio POS's from the elite "sov-experienced" Thorn forces.

They had an AHAC gang consisting of 10ish Zealots, 6 T2 Armor Logi, 2 Web Loki, and Proteus to support their 3 Dreadnoughts. I imagine they were busy scoffing to themselves on comms about how superior they are to NPC 0,0 alliances when we cyno'd our fleet on top of their dreads. We lost the Cyno Rapier to the POS/Moros but easily handled all of their dreads and caught a couple of T3's as a bonus.

I anticipate Thorn will next try redeploying to highsec.

The Kingdom is still secure.

Ah yep, just saw the video. Aeon was sooooo close!

Also, being finally awake today....noticed the Titan was fit with active hardeners. Lol. That sorta illustrates exactly why you don't fit active hardeners to supers. :s

you can maybe make an argument about keeping them fit when you're in the 200man cap blob, and can receive cap, but he should've never fit active hardeners, same with the aeon. Aeon dropped like a sack of shit after they killed the Erebus.....no hardeners of his were on (or he was still travel fit, but I doubt it).

Finding ourselves stuck with a somewhat reduced target pool we decided to go sit on the station of our delightful neighbors; Brick Squad. As all their pilots were afk (they're mostly US timezone) we took it upon ourselves to keep their station safe for them. After scaring a reaper back into the docking bay we got kinda bored and decided to act upon our true passion (and of eve's oldest professions); Exterior space design.

At the very least the Aeon was ALMOST properly dropping fit.

I'd guess that the nyx actually was properly cap regen fit and cyno'd out the second hostile hictor appeared on grid. Unless you have officer cap power relays, capacitor flux coils are superior for their raw regen of putting your super back to jump cap.

This aeon pilot had neither officer OR even faction cap power relays, instead just t2.

It's still one step forward in fitting compared to dropping in full tank fit, which is retarded. Ppl are learning, and ofc these guys still rank p. high among super pilots for being ballsy enough to (successfully) use their supers outside of lolfleets semiregularly.

It's not just Goons, it's a major part of the CFC. I wouldn't be surprised if this the start of a campaign targeted at N3 specifically, not to gain new space but to weaken people who could become a threat in the future. You don't deploy a coalition to an NPC area to just fuck about without some strategic goals. Smart move, but most likely the beginning of the end of fun in Curse.

Someone somewhere last week (helpful I know, fucked if I can remember) said NC. moved to Immensea quite literally just after all the relevent people had moved away (I paraphrase). Seems 'quite literally everyone relevant' is moving back to the area. Fun times. Whilst talking numbers is pretty retarded at the best of times, the level of propoganda expounded by CFC at the expense of N3 seems disproportionate to the relative size of the two coalitions. Oh, and apparently NC. are the new BoB. Who knew. Anyway, wildly optimistic hopes that Init. would provide a cornerstone for a third block appear to be dashed as they've thrown in with CFC. How imaginative.

Init. was never going to anchor a third block, they've tried that and failed at it enough times. They've got saying power, but for whatever reason they've never displayed the capability to hammer out the kind of lasting diplomatic agreements that a working coalition needs. I'd guess that they'd make good coalition partners, but you need someone with more finesse to herd all the inevitable cats that a decent sized bloc generates. It seems like the best chance for that now would be DD/-A-/Stainwagon to take the traditional south. It remains to be seen weather they can push N3 out of Teneferis and Omist which I guess to be the most strategically important regions to secure their eastern borders, possibly immensea as well, but I think that's less likely.

Granted that would cut pretty heavily into N3's renter income, as I don't think their holdings in the drone regions are that large, mostly in Etherium Reach and Oasa. But I think the russians will almost need those two southern regions for the income to maintain their own fighting forces, that is if they don't derp out like they always have before and try to rely on individual pilots to supply and replace their own equipment in defensive wars.

Well Test has all but moved out and Goonswarm has begun dropping towers in G-0 so it looks like they might be setting up for a campaign against N3, dunno if they'll actually go for sov or just want to fuck around in N3 space but that should give DD/A/Stain a chance to expand while N3 has to deal with 2 fronts.

If I had to guess I'd say they'd go for a punitive war, rather than to take territory. XDeath is in cache which I still don't understand, but it feels to me like actually trying to take any territory that far south and east would be an over extension for the CFC. If they take anything they'd go for the western drones and try to screw up PL's renter supply lines. Cutting that off would be significant, anything south of the drones that would require them to base out of curse would force them to stage out of hostile territory for an assault outside jump range of their core. Hell I'm not convinced they'll be able to hold their southern territories; notice they've had to bring init/wall in now and move Space Monkeys Li3 and Fatal down there full time to anchor it, smart moves IMO but I'm not convinced it'll be enough, they're probably expecting Init to lead their southern flank, the others they sent down to occupy that territory don't strike me as having the skill for that.

Three days ago Sister Bliss of Initiative informed us of our new campaign. A campaign to go to Curse and basically going to fuck shit up. (No need for a fancy narrative).

The plan was for ourselves and another Imperium group (Razor) to move to G-0Q86 and just generally try and get fights from the surrounding regions.

Whilst the main objectives for this campaign was to generally "have fun and fuck shit up" we had hit the odd tower here and there and not really got any response.


So, on the evening of the 1st of August 2015. We were preparing to repair on of my corporations towers that had been hit by GE. The plan was set and the stronters were ready.

And then this happened....

Sister Bliss, who was going to be running this evenings festivities had formed a fleet of Machariels and Dreads, and had a seperate group of Hictors and Dictors, he had secretly advised the group of dictors/hictors to travel to a secret location. At the time, we were concerned that there was a spy on comms who might give the game away. So calmly, Bliss formed up the fleet and prepped the dreads and Machs. The fleet was then warped to the titan and at that point the dictors were asked to jump in and bubble, at that point there was a call for a cyno.

"Cyno Up, Lets Fun"

We jumped in, bubbles literally everywhere. Titans and Supers get focus pointed, then it was just a slog through the various super and titans HP. NC. tried to save them with some Cerberus's and Cynabals. But they got volleyed off field quickly.

Some of the caps and supers made it back into Litom and were quickly tackled by INIT forces. Sadly we missed an Aeon by a mistaken bumped outside the bubbles and he managed to get safe. But INIT were fairly effective in tidying up the remaining capitals and supers.

It wasn't all beer and bingo for The Initiative, INIT lost one dread who got doomsdayed by Thr3e. Who luckily insured his dreadnaught so he'll be able to recoup some of his loss via insurance and loot collected from the Titans.

Good fight NC. This was fun.

OK now we're all docked, I'll write up a biased, incomplete and misleading AAR

So we (RAZIN) were just on our way back to base from doing what we like best, which is shooting structures. God damb, we love shooting structures, ask anyone. Bliss is telling everyone that fleet will be standing down, we'll be reforming later to shoot more structures \o/

Then suddenly he politely requests that we all shut our noiseholes for a minutes. In trembling anticipation of being able shoot more structures even sooner than we'd hope, we all clamp our noiseholes except Kass who is drunk and rambling about some shit, I don't even know.

We are then informed that the fleet is not standing down, and Bliss asks for a bunch of armour HICs & dictors. A dozen or so x up, we're invited to channel and directed to burn to a SUPER SECRET LOCATION. Since we're not actually stupid and also Bliss is probably the most painfully straightforward person in the world, no one is fooled by this attempt at discretion and subterfuge. Luckily we're too shit to merit any spies who pay attention so shit doesn't get spoiled.

HICs and Dictors burn ASAP to Litom and log off on the the Jamunda gate. One gets ganked along the way because why would you keep up or even say anything on comms when you fall behind when there's an obvious chance at super kills, I don't even know. Naturally it's one of the 3 HICs with a cyno. Naturally.

Anyway after a few tense minutes staring at a log in screen, Bliss commands dreads to undock, out we all pop.

LOG IN LOG IN JUMP INTO LITOM AND POINT EVERY FUCKER. CYNO UP, DREADS JUMP THROUGH.

Cyno HIC dies but too late, we're all in Litom.

Initially we pick off dreads then carriers, but then it become evident that there's no direction at all in their fleet and we go for the high value stuff. An Aeon gets away because of fucking course it does, 12 bubblers aren't nearly enough to keep 4 supercaps who aren't even shooting back pointed, right?.

Anyway, all blaps on the rag, he dies pretty fast, meanwhile I'm keeping focused point on the Nyx. He tries to shoot me a little but soon gets tire or something I don't know. He's next. Avatar makes it to the gate and jumps through, but luckily we actually have some dictors who know what a bubble launcher is and he goes nowhere. 2 HICs follow after him to keep him where he is while we clear up the last couple of caps in Litom. My dread is still in 75% seige and Bliss poitely requests that I keep my HIC in Litom "just in case". Cunt.

So I do not get on the Avatar kill.

Then we dock up dreads, stieall all the ships in the carriers like the sticky-fingered space-pikeys that we are and GTFO.

And because we're fucking INIT, we detour on the way home with hold stuffed full of X-type and faction goodies to kill 2 NCdot towers because god damb we really genuinely do like shooting structures.

Night night, we love you all and our germans are the best germans.

EDIT sory for the bad typing, I'm drinking gin.
EDT 2: might have swapped Jam and Litom around somewhere there. Fuck it. You get the idea; it was a total gank.

Initially we pick off dreads then carriers, but then it become evident that there's no direction at all in their fleet and we go for the high value stuff. An Aeon gets away because of fucking course it does, 12 bubblers aren't nearly enough to keep 4 supercaps who aren't even shooting back pointed, right?.

Anyway, all blaps on the rag, he dies pretty fast, meanwhile I'm keeping focused point on the Nyx. He tries to shoot me a little but soon gets tire or something I don't know. He's next. Avatar makes it to the gate and jumps through, but luckily we actually have some dictors who know what a bubble launcher is and he goes nowhere. 2 HICs follow after him to keep him where he is while we clear up the last couple of caps in Litom. My dread is still in 75% seige and Bliss poitely requests that I keep my HIC in Litom "just in case". Cunt.

So I do not get on the Avatar kill.

Then we dock up dreads, stieall all the ships in the carriers like the sticky-fingered space-pikeys that we are and GTFO.

And because we're fucking INIT, we detour on the way home with hold stuffed full of X-type and faction goodies to kill 2 NCdot towers because god damb we really genuinely do like shooting structures.

Night night, we love you all and our germans are the best germans.

EDIT sory for the bad typing, I'm drinking gin.
EDT 2: might have swapped Jam and Litom around somewhere there. Fuck it. You get the idea; it was a total gank.

Freedom for avrse aeon

Three days ago Sister Bliss of Initiative informed us of our new campaign. A campaign to go to Curse and basically going to fuck shit up. (No need for a fancy narrative).

The plan was for ourselves and another Imperium group (Razor) to move to G-0Q86 and just generally try and get fights from the surrounding regions.

Whilst the main objectives for this campaign was to generally "have fun and fuck shit up" we had hit the odd tower here and there and not really got any response.


So, on the evening of the 1st of August 2015. We were preparing to repair on of my corporations towers that had been hit by GE. The plan was set and the stronters were ready.

And then this happened....

Sister Bliss, who was going to be running this evenings festivities had formed a fleet of Machariels and Dreads, and had a seperate group of Hictors and Dictors, he had secretly advised the group of dictors/hictors to travel to a secret location. At the time, we were concerned that there was a spy on comms who might give the game away. So calmly, Bliss formed up the fleet and prepped the dreads and Machs. The fleet was then warped to the titan and at that point the dictors were asked to jump in and bubble, at that point there was a call for a cyno.

"Cyno Up, Lets Fun"

We jumped in, bubbles literally everywhere. Titans and Supers get focus pointed, then it was just a slog through the various super and titans HP. NC. tried to save them with some Cerberus's and Cynabals. But they got volleyed off field quickly.

Some of the caps and supers made it back into Litom and were quickly tackled by INIT forces. Sadly we missed an Aeon by a mistaken bumped outside the bubbles and he managed to get safe. But INIT were fairly effective in tidying up the remaining capitals and supers.

It wasn't all beer and bingo for The Initiative, INIT lost one dread who got doomsdayed by Thr3e. Who luckily insured his dreadnaught so he'll be able to recoup some of his loss via insurance and loot collected from the Titans.

Good fight NC. This was fun.
